Mema Jo said...

Wow Jewels You got the feather

Thanks you Steve for the fresh thread and welcome home! We have a brancher now in the nest - the female. First fledge should be very soon.

Mema Jo said...

CA take cover - doesn't sound good!
Please come back on when it is over!

Mema Jo said...

Dana WV - We have heard from Red- he had gone home but developed pneumonia
and had to go back to hospital & I think now he is finishing up the rehab.

Mema Jo said...

When I came back I did see the wing tip at the 9 branch.

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Mema Jo I had read that back in the comments. I sent him an email to have when he gets home.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good evening my eagle budlets. I have spent the day nursing my sunburn. Ugh.

Lynne2 said...

Hi everyone and Happy Memorial Day to all!

Hope everyone has had a good weekend!

Lynne2 said...

We had a nice time with our friends yesterday. No storms there, just wind and some light rain. OUR place got nailed pretty good, and poor Daisy was home and likely freaking out all by herself.

We didn't even know there were storms...when the wind picked up, we checked the radar and saw the mess.

Judie said...

Ah, I see Bro is enjoying some boy time alone in the nest. Well, he had a semi-big adventure today.

Dinner is over. It was good. Kitchen repaired. Headed to put my feet up.

Carolyn, if you're in Margy's seat, you've got everything under control. Have a quiet shift.

Just in case, and I suspect it will be the case, the night light is set for 11:30pm and the sandperson will begin rounds shortly after. Restful sleep for all.

Lynne2 said...

Hi Judie, how is Gracie coming along? I truly have never seen a cat with so much post spay issues....hope she is on the mend.

JudyE said...

FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DIDN'T SEE THE STORM LAST NIGHT I DID A 4MIN VIDEO OF OUR EAGLE WINGERSIZING IN THE LIGHTENING STORM AND RAIN THEY WERE SO FUNNY TO WATCH SCARY TOOO

THE TUG OF WAR IS ALSO ON THE SAME BLOG


Last night storm and the eaglets going bonkers in the rain and lightening

Sandi said...

Hi all - home at last! It was an exhausting but very productive weekend! Mom's place looks like she has lived there for 3 months, not 3 days! Every box unpacked and the contents put away, most of the pictures hung, and Mom is sounding a little happier now that her new place has her familiar things all around.

Have watered all my very thirsty annuals and am headed for a bath and bed!

Nine more days with kids!! Hope all is well with everyone - I understand that both of our eaglets have started branching as of this afternoon! Heard Rod Stewart's "Forever Young" on the drive home - have always loved that song, used to play it for my 5th graders on the last day of school. When I heard the line, "And when you finally fly away, I'll be hoping that I served you well ..." I thought about our peaglets and how their parents really have served them well!! I'm so proud of Belle and Shep and how well they have cared for their 2 kids this season!

Goodnight all ... see you in the AM!

JudyE said...

I forgot to mention but Josh is Alicia 25 yr old brother Alicia is Angies SIL He was found dead yesterday No reason parents went to wake him and he was gone. So said so young. ok back to see what I can watch on TV I was a bad girl and stopped and got a Hazelnut Java Chiller at Sonic OH SO GOOD its so good it evil LOL

Linda said...

Dinner and shower are done!! Broke down and put the A/C on. It's too hot and muggy!

Glad to see others checking in.

SANDI - Amazing, all the work you accomplished this weekend. You need to go back to work for a break!! Nine more days? Whoo Hoo!!

Happy DanaMo is home and had a fun weekend! Thanks JO for the update.

LYNNE - Glad you had a good time with friends yesterday

CAROLANNE - Hoping your roost is safe in the storm.

JUDY - So sad is right. Only 25 years old, too. Hopefully more will be revealed as to his cause of death.

JEWELS - Hope it is a good shift for you. Thinking of you often.... xoxo

Icing my feet right now. It was a busy day!! I sure don't like the fact that I can't accomplish anywhere near what I used to in a day.

CarolAnne said...

Storms have left the area - no one has any damage.

Have been able to keep the house cool by running a tilt fan at bottom of basement steps, blowing cool air up to main part of house -no central air in this old time house.

Hoping everyone can look back on a good weekend - lots accomplished, or deserved rests taken, pains at bay for awhile, and a moment or more of exciting eagle watching.

Eagle hugs to all - sweet dreams, restful sleep.

Mema Jo said...

Night CA Rest well SED

Linda said...

CAROLANNE - Happy to hear all is well on the home front and you have a way to keep the house cool.

When it gets warm outside, I dry my hair in the basement, I DO NOT like sweating......especially when I am trying to dry my hair!!! LOL

FuzzleMT said...

Is anyone worried that one of the eaglets isn't in the nest?

stronghunter said...

Hi,

Glad that the storms have passed on, CA. I remember our days in Ohio with no central air. We did have a window unit in the master bedroom and later got one in the kitchen. We did get central air when we came to Fredericksburg. This area would be tough without it.

But then we certainly didn't have it growing up. It is in what you get used to.

stronghunter said...

Pardon the double post.

Hmm, I hope that the eaglets both return to the nest, but it is that time.

stronghunter said...

I can't see too well, but there seems to be on at about 11:00.

paula eagleholic said...

I can see one eaglet at the 11 spot...need the clouds to move out to let the moon shine thru!

Evening, all...been home since 9:!5 or so, not too bad a ride home, missed a lot of the backup by taking some back roads.

paula eagleholic said...

House here is pretty warm, been opening up windows and turning on fans. I have window air units, but they are not in yet.

Got some laundry started, gotta unpack the cooler. Realized I left the cut up watermelon and salad in the frig at the beach, plus my list! I got part of the list rewritten!

Lynne2 said...

Paula, back roads off of 50 on Kent Island and past the Bay Bridge?

paula eagleholic said...

Both might be in the nest, not sure

paula eagleholic said...

no Lynne up 309 right after Easton...runs into 301 then into rt 50

Lolly said...

Have been sitting here and watching the radar. Weather radio has gone off! So far the storms are west of us. DO NOT WANT HAIL, but could use the rain. They have been predicting hail with this storm system, just do not know if it is going to reach us or not.

Lynne2 said...

Oh, good Paula! The people of Kent Island and those in the back roads where you can get to Rt. 2 from 50 complained and complained about the extensive beach traffic for years. Now, there are police just watching for tourists on those roads posted Local Traffic Only!

Gotta get to bed....been a nice 3 day break! Especially after the horrors of Friday at work.

Good night and prayers for all!

paula eagleholic said...

Eaglet at 11 laid down, I think, other one may have laid down before that

paula eagleholic said...

Could ya'll seen them last night, or was it too cloudy with the storms?

paula eagleholic said...

Sure could use some of that watermelon right now, LOL

Mema Jo said...

Judy saw them when the lightening struck
Both were in the nest during the storm but then Missy got up on the edge and was flapping away.

Lolly said...

I am amazed that you can make out anything in the nest.

Hoda said...

MARGY A MILLION THANK YOUS. I received your envelope just now and I am ever so grateful...Blessings to ♥LADY LYNN♥
So very many blessings. I am grateful to have it MARGY and will keep it with my precious papers.
Gratitude and HUGS come your way.

I am glad people are checking back in and it sounds like you all have had safe trips home after productive and enjoyable weekends.

JudyE said...

I realized I uploaded the wrong video from the storm last nite I made three short ones and I wanted to post the one where they both were doing wingersize in the rain and lightening JO said monkey see monkey do at one point was scarey and funny It is uploading now I did post one already on the blog and on FB Fan page of the storm last nite then realized it wasn't the one I wanted to post so I am redoing now so I will post link later after it is done OK

PAULA they were quite visible in the storm last nite was terrible watching them in the storm flapping all over the nest Silly Birds 100%

paula eagleholic said...

Hoda posted that Bro branched today?

Linda said...

Well, I'm fading fast here......so I'll say my good nights!!

May you all have SED tonight and awake refreshed and ready to start a short work week!! That is those who are working!! LOL

Prayers for KAY's pain, RED's rehab, SHARON's sunburn and all those I did not mention as I am sure there are many more. Keeping each one of you in prayer every day!

Wishing you all restful sleep and SED!!!

xoxo
Night

Linda said...

Yes, he did, PAULA!!!

Linda said...

Well, yes HODA did post that Bro branched!! He missed on his first try, but made it the second time!!

stronghunter said...

Good night, my friends. I will see you tomorrow.

Mema Jo said...

If Bro Branched

Where was Missy - ???

Mema Jo said...

I went to the Mon 6:23 or so -
Yep Hoda said they were both up there.
Hardly any room on that stump!

JudyE said...

JO read 5:43 HODA Post

JudyE said...

OOps I see you saw it okdokey

Jewels said...

We got busy here.... sorry, never did get to read back... yes I got a feather, but I didn't get to claim it. LOL
Judie, I don't know about me having it under control!! It is definetly team work!! :)
hope all is well with everyone. No storms here I do not believe.

Lolly said...

Laurel should be getting rain now and it looks like it will reach us soon. They did say on the news to batten down the hatches, strong wind, but the threat of hail has gone. Yea!

I saw one of the eaglets, and was told it was Missy, trying to get up to the stump but the other was already there. Saw wings flapping and back down into the nest came the eaglet.

JudyE said...

I am off tomorrow for a dr appt my yearly for my patches I don't want to be jonesen LOL

I put a pic of one of the eagle doing a spread wing in the lightening got a lucky screen grab also there is the second video of the store to where they both were flapping like competing with each other

JudyE said...

OOPS for got the link pic grab of eagle in nest last nite storm and video of storm wingersize in the lightening

Hoda said...

NO JO they were NOT both up there when Bro Branched...

Missy came down for some nest leftovevers. Bro went towards even and tried but he was not close enough and came down on nine trunk..Right away he gave it a second try and he branched. He stayed up there while Missy was in the nest. Missy finished her meal and she kept looking up there to see him on her perch. At one point she lifted up so close to nine branch and sustained a flight but DID NOT PERCH and came back in the nest...eventually Bron came down thinking food and Missy went back up there again. Except for the few seconds that Missy lifted trying to recalim nine branch she was in the nest when Bro was up there. When Bro came down Missy went back up again.

Hoda said...

Bro went towards seven is should read...seven not even!!! Sorry

Mema Jo said...

Well I am going to go and find my stump! lol

Good Night everyone and God Bless All
prayers for healing and happiness
** (((Lynn♥Carolyn♥Christie♥))) **

Hold down the fort Carolyn!

I LOVE US ♥♥♥

Lolly said...

Annie has retreated to her safe place behind the sofa. Wind really picking up and see lightening. Wahooo! Rain! I can deal with picking up leaves and branches, just do not want hail. Have I said that before? LOL

Hoda said...

OK LOLLY stay safe you and JACK and ANNIE...I hope no hail...but lots of rain...

paula eagleholic said...

I can't tell where they are in the nest!

Heading to bed, I'm slam wore out!

SED and Hugs and Love for all ♥

magpie said...

Hot Hot Hot and Still Hot...

Good Whatever it is Eagle Pals...

xo

magpie said...

Hoda, sounds like a good Echo Report....love Judie's comments about the music of the sounds ..
and agree 100%

Terrible incident regarding the bicyclist hit by the unsecured plywood....my brother in law died from a head injury and it was so tragic...hope that your friend's husband recovers

magpie said...

so, when I have cottage cheese next, I am going to think of Brantley and Granmatiger...
GREAT avatar Wanda...and....can Friday get here fast enough !!! Be

magpie said...

BE = rest of the word is ST

Best wishes to Rachel as she returns to work....hope I spelled her name right

magpie said...

A+++ week-end with James...even though it "only" 32 hours or so....packed a lot of fun into this time.
Cemeteries, two, though hot...we treasured our visits...took some frozen washcloths and frozen water squirt bottles with us that thawed out at just the right times

Bela (not "Bella" as I had thought) and James are both back at their own homes...so I have separation anxiety times-2....empty nest syndrome of sorts

Ms Bookworm said...

Good Evening, Everyone!

Have been pretty much MIA since very early Saturday morning. Turns out I was ambushed by a gout attack! It came on rather suddenly in my left ankle. I could barely move! Ken finally went to a nearby GNC store and got me some wonderful stuff called "Apple Cider Complete", and it really did the trick. I'm feeling almost normal tonight. The AC Complete turns the uric acid in your blood alkaline, and goodbye gout pain! Boy it's taken a while to get caught up here. First of all...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LORI!!!! Hope it is a spectacular day for you!!

Carolyn, prayers for Jess! Hope her hand continues healing rapidly.
Awesome story about ♥Lynn♥ visiting Jess in the ER! ^j^

Shirley, sorry to hear that Luna is having eye problems. She's on my prayer list! Hope George is doing better. Prayers for him, too!

Shar, so sorry to hear about your sunburn! Sure hope it starts feeling better, pronto!! Prayers!

Be still my heart!! Now Bro is branching, too! Gee, it won't be long before they both fledge. I'm just so grateful that this season is a success! Shep has been a really good daddy!

There's so many other things I'd love to comment about, but I'm about to do a face plant into my keyboard! Will have to wait until morning. The porch light is on, and both security systems are enabled. Prayers are said for everyone, and every creature. Sleep well, everyone, with SED. God bless, and goodnight. Love all of you!!
♥♥Lynn♥♥
♥Carolyn & Christie♥
I ♥ us!

Jewels said...

Happy birthday Lori!!!!

Andrea thanks, Jessica's hand is improving already and she can bend her fingers now. I am ready for another visit from mom too!!
Sorry about your Gout attack. How awful!! not a good way to spend your weekend!!

Kay said...

Time for medication and a wee bit o' meditation before getting more zzz's.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. -Leo Buscaglia, author (1924-1998)


Thanks to you dear Eagle Buds who provide me with all those blessings day after day !

♫♫♪ Happy Birthday Dear gLORI, Happy Birthday to you ! ♫♪♫ Remember, "age doesn't matter unless you are a cheese or a fine wine". Hope you have a glorious day !

Kay said...

WANDA, thanks for the big "AW" ! Brantley is a doll !

ANDY, sorry to hear about the painful gout attack, but pleased to hear how well the acid treatment works. SANDI, pass ANDY's remedy on to your Mom, huh ? And speaking of her, I've been thrilled to hear how well the big move has gone. Hope she's loving her new place more with each passing day !

LORI, it was grand hearing about the visit with family and all the accomplishments around your piece of paradise over the long weekend !

Kay said...

A day or two ago I wrote about being out of the loop and not knowing what youse guys mean by SED. No one has answered, or if so I haven't spotted it. Please ?

Big storms bearing down on Indy right now and expected to hit us in a couple of hours. Then a big cool down from the 90's to the 70's for a few days. Looking forward to that !

Expecting to see a lot of branching fun at Sycamore Palace and Columbus's Sycamore Castle today. 5 almost juvies to watch ! Yeah !

Holding all in need close to my heart ! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Sandi said...

Good Tuesday morning my eagle friends. One in the nest flapping around and 1 on the 9 stump.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORI!!!!!

Oops, Missy back in the nest and some bickering going on!

Lori said...

Thanks for the call over, JEWELS, and for the new thread, Steve!

Ah, you guys are so sweet! Thank you for all the Birthday Wishes.

I love you ALL!!!

I am so sore from moving things off and on the deck, pushing a sander, (though not as much as everyone else did), and all the other chores we got done! Guess it means I just need to start moving around more to work it out!

I'm with KAY, what does the SED mean?

Are we ssaying anyone has officially fledged yet? I have a hard time telling Missy & Bro apart!

Sandi said...

Good morning Kay!! I assume you're up for some meds and then headed back to bed when they start working? Really counting down the days for you til you'll get some relief!

Sandi said...

Kay, SED = sweet eagle dreams! And I just jotted down Apple Cider Complete to pass along to Mom!! This is the first I've gotten caught up in 4 days - have really missed hearing what's going on in everyone's lives but feel great about the weekend. Called Mom last night to let her know we were home and she sounded cheerful!

Lori said...

BEST Morning to you Kay and Sandi!

I think we were all typing at the same time, though my post took so long because I'm always a cat wrangler/feeder in the morning!

DanaMo said...

Good morning!!

Sandi said...

Morning Birthday girl and good morning DanaMo!!! Hey Dana, we're in the home stretch!! Is this Friday it for you??

DanaMo said...

I only see one, what's been going on?

The end is in sight for me at school. Only 6 more days.

Today is our "field day" we are at a place called Antietam Recreation. A fun but exhausting day for the children and the adults. Usually followed by adult beverages at my home for the teachers!

DanaMo said...

No, I next Tuesday is my last day. Kindergarten graduation.

Sandi said...

DanaMo, I am woefully behind on what happened with everyone's weekend since I was in Balto. moving my mom. What was the weather like at the beach over the weekend? Were you at Frontier Town camping?

DanaMo said...

Waiting and hoping for "ducklings" to hatch in my classroom. No chicks this year :( My incubator didn't arrive until almost 2 weeks after my chicken eggs, I guess it was just too long. I didn't expect them to hatch but of course I hoped. It does however, look like I will have ducks, which is something new and fun. I already decided I would get a baby pool for in the classroom so we can let the babies swim. How fun is that?

Sandi said...

DanaMo, both eagles have started branching (Missy last Thurs. I think and Bro yesterday). They seem to like the stump at 9.

DanaMo said...

The weather was fantastic Sandi. We were at Frontier Town, and had a great weekend. Annemarie brought a friend and we even managed a "power shopping" trip to the outlet to Aeropostle. I got $200 worth of clothes for her for $94.! I was excited and jealous! :P

So your mom moved already! Wow! Fantastic. That is so good that is taken care of, I bet you are so relieved.

I don't think I told you guys that my parents have a contract on the business and relief is in sight for them on June 30th. Thanks be to God! What a year it has been for them. I am so glad that everything worked so quickly. I never expected them to sell so fast, under what the property is really worth in a good market, but alas, they need to retire.

Sandi said...

Dana, GREAT news for your folks! My mom got 3 offers on her old place and settles in mid July. Yep, we got her moved in on Friday afternoon and, by Monday afternoon, we had every box unpacked and everything put away, as well as most of the pictures and things on the walls! Denny, my sister and I did all the work while my brother-in-law kept the kids occupied at the pool.

Sandi said...

Time to get myself back in the groove! HAGD all; will check in from school!

Lori said...

Sandi, I am amazed that you got your mother's entire place moved and packed and unpacked in such a short time. I'm sure it was back breaking!

Glad you had a great trip, DMo! I read your updates on FB and it sounded so fun.

If this is your last week, DMO, I'm soooo jealous!

Sandi, show long for you?

Lori said...

I'm taking today off. See how much more time I have in the morning to blog if I don't have to work???!?!

Good morning all,
Beautiful spring day here today - in the 60's - down from 90° & storms.

Lori - HAPPY BIRTHDAY - may the memories bring a smile and the future be full of happiness!

stronghunter said...

Good morning!!

I see that our big Sissy is restless and probably about ready to take off this morning.

stronghunter said...

Well, there she went. Up on the branch.

stronghunter said...

Hi Lori!

Good morning to you.

I LOVE YOU AND I HOPE YOUR DAY IS BEAUTIFUL!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Happy Birthday Lori!!!!

Missy and Bro have only branched. When they fly off the nest completely, that is fledging!

paula eagleholic said...

Bro looks totally zonked...

paula eagleholic said...

Sounds like Missy is calling out for breakfast!

CarolAnne said...

Yes, I wished he'd move a bit.
I always worry when I check in and he is motionless!

paula eagleholic said...

He's moving his head a tad

CarolAnne said...

He just seems so different from Missy -- so disinterested in the branching & checking things out.

Hi - my middle name is "Worry" - LOL

magpie said...

G☼☼D Sunny West Virginia Morning, Eagle Pals !!

Struggling to get the live feed up here at work, so your posts are all the more important to me regarding the Nestcapades


Have a Good Day, Hey why Not, It's Lori's Birthday, Let's Cyber-Celebrate !

magpie said...

Yay for you Lori,
everyone should take their birthday off work....
even those who are retired ☺


I missed you immediately when I climbed into the car for the ride to work !!

magpie said...

Sandi:
Ydo you hire yourself out ???

I could use some of your get 'er doneabilities !!

magpie said...

Oh.
I was able to obtain 6 Nicotiana plants and one Moon Vine from Megan's Market.....
and the Happy Plant for Wanda, is the Cardinal Vine !

magpie said...

Wanda
I know you are Soup Kitchen and Clothes Closet tonight but I hope you see this:
YOU ARE WELCOME....
I don't know who is more excited, you for getting the Cardinal Vine, or Megan and I when we realized, hey! We can get this to Wanda Today [Sunday]
Plus, I did get a great view of your garden and all the beautiful flowers

magpie said...

OH man, Andrea..gout..
but what a cool thing you got some relief from the Apple Cider tonic...

magpie said...

fabulous, three chicks at BWO

boy oh boy am I behind on things

Best Wishes for a Good Day, Every One

need to make dough, see you later when the biscuits rise
xoxoxo (( All Day Hugs ))

magpie said...

PS:

Kay, I loved your post with the quote from Leo Buscaglia...so very true..these things work!

AND, I also was in the dark on SED but got my answer a few days ago...I do believe it was L☼lly who enlightened me... ☺ ♥

magpie said...

oh my, those kestrel babies are beautifying up nicely

Judie said...

Good morning!

♪♫♪♫ HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORI ♪♫♪♫ Hope this one is extra special.

Margy, glad you had such a great time with James and, yes, Wanda's picture of Brantley is adorable.

Carolyn, glad Jess's hand is improving so quickly.

Lynne, I too am having trouble understanding why it is taking so long for Grace's incision to heal. It did have a slight infection (from licking it so we're told) but this is a first and I've had cats nearly all my 67 years.

Judie said...

Good morning, again!

In catching up it seems most everyone had a nice weekend with Sandi getting her mom settled and DanaMo visiting Frontier Land and doing some power shopping, Paula is home safe and sound, and I suspect Shirley will be here soon after Hunter leaves for school.

I checked the nest and I see Bro, I think, plotzed. Don't like what looks like lack of energy.

JudyE, so sorry about the death of the young man. Prayers for all the family.

So, off to find some coffee and the newspaper.

Judie said...

Um, I just looked at the nest again. Does anyone else think something might not be quite right? Feeling a bit anxious now.

Judie said...

Okay, never mind. I see he's up and flapping around. Sorry.

CarolAnne said...

FINALLY he's up and about!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Just saw the wings from the branch and the other one is flapping.

I sure hope Grace gets that darn collar off soon.

Prayers are all listed. Plus ask for those that may not have said anything.

When I was reading comments about the eaglets branching. It almost sounded like both were out of the nest. Meaning Missy went up higher and Bro was on the stump at 9 o'clock. Knowing the picture I sent around shows only 1 stump no limbs off it. I finally re-read and I believe. When Bro branched to stump Missy was in nest.

Remember to stop and smell the flowers.

Happy Birthday, Lori!
Thanks Margy, for the delivery, I know Wanda has been wanting to grow cardinal vine for a while, I was happy we could get it to her. Super easy to grow it, Wanda, just give it sunshine, and something to climb on.
Back outside, this intense heat is a pain so early in the season,glad we've had some rain.

magpie said...

Righto, Megan!
Was really great to make it to market...boy was I relieved you still had nicotiana... ☺

think the cooler air West of is is going to bring in some rain and maybe somewhat cooler temperatures for a day or so...

James and I froze some wet washcloths yesterday before heading out in the heat...it was pretty neat to break them out a little later on...we went thru tons of cold water also

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

And I would like to add that none of our eaglets have ever branched on that stump because that stump didn't used to be there.

GOOD TUES., THE DAY
AFTER A GREAT
WEEKEND, TO
EVERYONE.

VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV

Good weather here in So Cal now ... not too hot, not too cold.

I see the older eaglet is looking more and more like fledging, and the other is trying mightily to keep up. Soon now for sure.

Good fine feathered morning to one and all! Doing a happy dance as I slept til 7:30! I've been trying to sleep in since saturday!


****Happy Birthday to Lori!****

Its been a busy few days. I was up late Sunday evening with hip and back spasms. I didn't get to sleep til past 11:30. Normally I'm in bed snoring @ 9:30.....and getting up @ 6 yesterday didn't make me very happy Thankfully we were busy at work. They maxed out my schedule, so I got to leave an hour early!!!

I didn't do much last night. Tom bought us some bikes and we rode around the cul de sac with Olivia last night. Think maybe we might go riding later???? Been years since I rode a bike.

Olivia is settling in with her new bunny her brother got her for her birthday. I plan and the Universe laughs! Kora (foster pup) goes home this Friday! Then my oldest will take her cat (Miss Kitty) home in 2 weeks or so when she closes on the house. Ha ha I think, down to 3 dogs, 2 cats!!! :) And in comes Doc the bunny. *sigh* I am destined to have a farm of sorts!

Another hot day in Nashvegas. Hoping for rain. We really need some.

I need to water so I can pull weeds later I suppose. Garden is looking really good. Can't wait for my fresh veggies!

Going to the store in a bit to get the stuff to start making veggie smoothes. Learned about them @ Qi Gong last year...eating so much more in the raw foods dept since then. Now to drink them...wish me well with this............

***JUDYE**** loved the lightening videos!

Hugs, light, and healing to all....Have a fabulous day!

Good late morning Eagle Buds Getting ready to head out to the Dr 1020appt

LORI Happy Birthday again

wvgal_dana said...

Janet I seen a show on tv where they were taking fruits and vegetables and mixing them together in a machine. Making smoothies. Man they would just put in a whole apple, whole banana, and vegetables and press the button.

That machine would work fast. Cost too much money for me. I don't know if I could drink the vegetable and fruit smoothies with getting the IB or not from vegetables.

wvgal_dana said...

DanaMo you camping at Frontier Town sure brings back wonderful memories of daughter, Ed and me going there. :)

Mema Jo said...

Happy Birthday Lori Celebrate You ♥

Lori driving down to the beach we were able to have 97.1 on the entire trip. It was great not to have to be searching for stations in whatever part of the state we were in and also in DE.

Mema Jo said...

Good "HOT" Morning - I have been thinking that the 'stump/branch' just could become the 'launch pad' for these eaglets. It is so out in the open. We would need a 'ground report' if we didn't see any actual fledge but had only seen one eaglet. I hope they don't use the stump but take after their parents as to where they leave the nest.
What is, Is.

wvgal_dana said...

Mema Jo did you get the picture I sent around showing the stump in the tree?

Linda said...

Good Morning!!

♥♥♥ ♪♫ HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORI ♫♪ ♥♥♥

HOPE YOUR DAY IS A HAPPY AND SPECIAL ONE....

♥♥♥ LOVE, LOVE, LOVE YOU!! ♥♥♥

stronghunter said...

Hello again,

Hunter is at school, now. He has a field trip today. He said it is either the Fredericksburg battleground or the Chancellorsville one. I think they could do both.

Linda said...

I saw Shep return to the nest with a fish, I believe. Boy Missy flew off that stump so darn fast and stole that fish.

She won't have any trouble defending herself in the wild. She won't let Shep or Bro get near that fish.

Then Shep decided to poof!!

Missy does NOT want to share AT ALL!!

Linda said...

KAY ♥ KAY ♥ KAY

♥♥♥ SED = SWEET EAGLE DREAMS ♥♥♥


Hopefully you will see this in the posts as you skim through!!

Sometimes we miss things!!

Love you....and we're counting down the days with you!

Mema Jo said...

Linda thanks for the report! The other day Missy almost came in head first and bumped into the edge railing! I guess
it is all called SURVIVAL and yes, she is going to do well!
I had the email, WV Dana. Thanks

Mema Jo said...

lol Do you think Bro is planning a
Sneak Attack?

Linda said...

He is trying, but Missy is one determined eaglet!

Bro needs to MAN UP and start getting a bit more assertive if he wants to make it out there!!

Lolly said...

Good morning!! Beautiful morning here but warming up. Got down to 69 last night but already 77 and climbing. Disappointing amount of rain last night, but thankful for what we did get.

Have washed my hair. Think I will suggest to Jack we go to Weston Gardens today. It is a nursery, but accross the street they have display gardens that are breath taking. We have not been for a while.

Sandi and Linda, thanks for answering Kay's question about SED. She keeps missing our answers. LOL I miss a lot. Someone says something and I have to go searching to see what they are talking about.

Linda said...

She keeps giving him "the look."

Mornin' JO!

Linda said...

LOLLY - Sounds like a good idea going to Weston Gardens......

Don't spend too much!! LOL

Lolly said...

I think he has managed a bite or two but that is all.

Lolly said...

Linda, my yard is about completely planted. LOL However, I am searching for shrubs that will bloom in shade. We took down a Cedar tree. Saved an article, but then I think it got thrown away. Jack's fear is I will get new ideas for landscaping.

Linda said...

Well, I better get moving on my day here before it's gone!!

I have a squirrel who is relentless on my back feeders this morning. I wish there was something that worked to keep them away from the feeders. We seem to have sooooo many!!

Have a wonderful day, my friends!!

Lolly said...

Ha! Did you see that sneak attack? He got another bite!

Lolly said...

We have a little squirrel we are calling Fearless, Joseph called him Feary. LOL We can walk right up to him. He is tiny!

Lolly said...

Same to you, Linda!

Linda said...

Well, that is the best way to get ideas, for sure!! We need to do that as well.

We want to replace our rhododendrons in the front because they are so old and leggy. Beautiful flowers, but for too short a time.

Did he finally steal a little of that fish??

Shep needs to bring in a big one and split it!!

Linda said...

Oh, LOLLY.....

Would you email me that recipe for flank steak when you get a chance, please??

I would like to see it and try it if it isn't too hard one day!!

Thanks :-)

Mema Jo said...

Bro managed some successful attacks but not enough to fill one's crop. I was fearful that one was going to knock the other out of the nest! Held my breath.
This was so very interesting to watch.
Shows the character of each one.

Linda said...

I believe Bro just flew up to the 9 stump, while Missy still chows down!!

Good On You, Bro!!

Mema Jo said...

Who saw which one going up on the stump

Linda said...

Yes, JO, you are correct.

Bro has a gentle manner.

Missy.....not so much!!

Mema Jo said...

I think you are right Linda. Bro is the darker of the two and I don't have a problem ID'ing them when they are both in the nest! Looks like Missy missed
out for the stump. Now I hope they don't fight over the stump!

Linda said...

I am 95% sure it was Bro who branched. Missy is still chowing down. Bro seems to have darker feathers to me, in the sun.

Yeah, it is Bro who branched, because that is definitely Missy in the nest right now.

Linda said...

Interesting that we both mentioned the darker coloring at the same time!!

Well maybe I will eat my breakfast at my desk and watch a little longer....

Linda said...

Has Missy branched at any other branch other than the 9 position?

I thought I remember hearing she did on the 3 branch, but I am not sure....

Lolly said...

Linda, I will email you the recipe. It does take a lot of preparation and is then cooked on the grill, though guess it could be roasted in the oven.

Do not know if I have it typed up and saved on the computer or not. Will check and will try to get to it today.

I am off to start my day! Have a great day!♥

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING...

Before I have to leave for Soup Kitchen for the day, I'd like to
wish LORI a ♫♪♫♪HAPPY BIRTHDAY♫♪♫♪.
Hope this day is as good for you as you have made it for others...Love You♥

Linda said...

LOLLY - No rush, please!! Just whenever you have the chance, I'd appreciate it. Thanks ♥

WANDA - Have a great day! Don't work too hard..... xo

Lori said...

Gosh, you guys, thanks again for all the birthday wishes. You really know how to make a person feel special. Now, can you take away lower back pain. Think I did too much time on the tractor over the weekend. :)

Excited to hear about Wanda's Cardial Vine - they are beautiiful.

Lolly, hope you find your flowering shade shrubs...how about Azaleas. The newer Encore variety reblooms several times and they take the heat.

Linda said...

Parent just flew in. Looks like Shep.

Missy about attacked him!! I don't know if he brought in food or not.

Bro flew into the nest, but IF Shep brought anything, Missy is on it AGAIN!!

Mema Jo said...

Wow we can start fresh - they are both in the nest now.

Linda said...

BRO back on Stump at 9 position.

Missy looks to be pecking at something... but I can't see it.

HELLO LORI!! BIRTHDAY GIRL!!

Mema Jo said...

That '2 in the nest' didn't last long!


I need to start my day by getting dressed. BBILW

Linda said...

Whatever Shep brought in was SMALL.

Missy is eating at the 4 position in the nest.

BRO isn't even going to bother with the fight.

Thinking that the food is their only source of water, too, and how hot they must be......

They will surely enjoy their first true drink of water, won't they?

stronghunter said...

So cool to see one in the nest and the shadow of another one cast from the branch above.

Linda said...

Yes, Shirley, I agree. Especially when he wingersizes and you see that full eagle shadow of the wings outstretched on to the nest.

I think I captured a picture of a similar site yesterday. I don't know if I reviewed it to see if it was good enough to post.

Better get something done now!!

BBL

Hoda said...

Good morning / good afternoon...

Awesome day here...

Headed out to celebrate the beauty and see what is what with what!!! No plans that is just looking at the beauty and knowing gratitude. This is my plan fo rhte day.

Linda said...

Hey....where is SHARON this morning??

SHARON - Are you healing from your sunburn?? Hoping you don't have blisters.....

DANAMO - I hurt just looking at your daughter's picture of her sunburned feet. OUCH!!

Okay, now I am really outta here!!

wvgal_dana said...

Put picture of STUMP where eaglets are branching too in the album. It has an adult sitting on it.
That is same picture my avatar right now is.

Lori said...

It's so hot again today, but should begin cooling down...a good chance for "heavy" thunderstorms tonight... Just don't want it to wash away all my new grass seed, but will be thankful for the water! Looking to be in the 70's later this week!!!

wvgal_dana said...

I guess that is still Missy in the nest. She has her wings out so she can get some air. She is hot !

wvgal_dana said...

If Bro is the one on the stump. He just spread his wings out. So we could see. :)

wvgal_dana said...

Eaglet in nest just moved to the 6 o'clock position (launch pad area).

wvgal_dana said...

Just hopped over to limb with stump and looked up. Now moving around the nest. I think she wants her stump.

Linda said...

YES - The eaglet in the nest is MISSY.

BRO is still on the stump.

Linda said...

BOTH back in the nest...

Linda said...

One flew back up to the stump. I think it was Bro, but I have to get a better look!

Linda said...

Looks like Missy jumped to the 3-4 branch just to the side and below the nest. She is not in the nest, but is still in almost full view.

Mema Jo said...

There must be a little terrace at 3 position. Must be cooler down there

magpie said...

Shep doesn't much care for fooling around with a mantling peaglet !

and away he goes


not much wonder there is little left to the 8 o'clock spot on the left when you see a bail out like that

magpie said...

well one of the two "babies" went out of view while I was typing

Linda said...

Shep flew in, but I don't see food.

Whichever one was on the stump flew down into the nest, but I don't see anyone eating.

Back up to the stump. The one on the right branch 3-4 position remained, which makes me think Bro may be on the right and Missy may be on the stump??

Linda said...

They've got me confused again!! I see a pretty good white spot on the back on the one at the 4 position, so maybe that is Bro.

Either way, they both are close by and have NOT fledged yet!!
