glo said...

wow I just missed the feather. Of course the first one didn't claim it so by default the rules say it goes to the second one LOL

Mema Jo said...

Judy - you got my attention!
I have read up and checked out FB
I now need to get on some garb and get to my 'do' - I'd like some highlights but mine would be Silver.

Our eaglets are now learning to take naps standing upright! Oh my, it isn't going to be long! :( I have really enjoyed this eagle season!

BBILW

Mema Jo said...

lol Glo - at least you have the bark from the Sycamore Palace - that is a lot compared to what others may have! Hoda wanted the Sycamore balls but they
only fall off in the Fall. And Jo, poor Jo never did get a turtle shell after all these years! :(

glo said...

MeMa Jo You need to be praying for the wind to blow in your direction when there is a loose turtle shell, but not til our "little" ones are safely fledged now.

wvgal_dana said...

Thank you Steve for the new thread. Thank you JudyE for the delightful call over. It was an attention getter.

T-Bird said...

Hello my eagle peeps. I'm feeling better. Thanks for all the prayers.

JudyE said...

Jordyn is down for a nap and it was her idea tooo So funny how she still like or should I say loves naps
Was suppose to rain today so we spent the morning going to second hand stores where the Shoe queen had a blast she found 20pairs of shoes in two stores and only one pair doesn't fit She loves to play dress up and instead of buying cheap Barbie dress up shoes which break and don't fit right we buy real shoes and she has a blast with the some are to big but she will grow in to them So some for play and some to wear for real I guess you could say WOW lots to read today compared to yesterday but first I must go hang up the cloths I have be avoiding for over a week BBIALW

magpie said...

Well Hellooooo T-Bird, that's a happy note and a smile, ☺ ☺ ♪ ♫ make that two smiles and two happy notes, one for you, one for me

xoxox

I'm on the edge of my seat on SOL -
I know what it does NOT stand for...at least as you say, not for Hunter and his school pals


Hello Again More Eagle Pals !!!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Do you mean SOL testing? Standards of Learning. Here we have the WesTest.

magpie said...

Sure wish I could read the posts slowly and then chitty chat or check links and things, but I CANNOT

Okay Lolly, so I will have an excuse for running the washer without any clothes? or running the washer WITH the clothes without any soap?
Just so I don't run out of the house without any clothes I'll guess I'll get by

magpie said...

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Donna Summer died after a long battle with breast cancer! :(

#CANCERSUCKS

JudyE said...

Hey they released NX yesterday NX released

JudyE said...

SHAR keeping Kristen in my thoughts and hoping for the best for all involved . Bless you dear♥ Thankful for the miracle of modern medicine
So Sorry about the migraines LINDA I always heard it was food and drinks that can cause them also
ANGIE always gets hives and the dr for years still can't figure out what it is she was thinking maybe gluten allergies
SHIRLEY is 3bucks richer now to cool
OOPS just read to where LORI had motioned the NS release

SHAR Sad Donna Summers died I use to love her songs

JudyE said...

almost caught up but need to go put on another load before she wakes up BBIALW

JudyE said...

I put a couple of pic of Jordyn shoe shop on the Misc blog so when I change the avatar you still can see her shoe collection there are some two sizes up to grown in to

Sandi said...

♫ Toot, toot! Hey, Beep beep! ♫ LOVED Donna Summer's songs! So sad that she's gone!

My Thursday workday is almost over - woohoo!!!

Standards of learning is just what I was thinking. Our test is DCAS, and boy am I sick of proctoring it!!

SO HAPPY to see Thelma out of hiding and back on the blog!!

Will check in from home. Forgot to post yesterday that my mom has had 2 people - a young single girl and a young couple - come through her house for a second look! Mom sounded happier on the phone than she has - I think she's really worried about the prospect of owning 2 places, one with a mortgage, so she'll be so relieved once she has a buyer for her place! She has had about 15 showings and the house has only been on the market since 5/1 so it must be priced right. Eight days til move day!

Lolly said...

Okay, can you see smoke rising in the west??? That is Lolly, so furious I am STEAMING and SMOKING!!!

We finally heard from their insurance adjuster. Claim denied, she was not on the insurance. That is against the law!!!! Our insurance will pay, we will have a $250.00 deductible to pay. Then our insurance company goes after them in court. I am just so mad I could scream!!!! I have a lot of questions, Jack is not home. Should be here soon. I talked with Joey, SIL is our insurance agent. Jack will call the company when he gets home. Grrrrrrrrrr!

Lolly said...

Yea, Sandi, do hope the house sells quickly. That is always such a worry.

WV sUSAn said...

Oh my gosh, Lolly, you have my attention. What a bunch of crapola!!! Is she a minor?? What a mess and YES I saw the smoke from here!!

Lolly said...

Yes, the girl that hit me is 17. Goes to the alternative hs. Do not know why...pg, trouble with the law, discipline problem????

The teacher I know who teaches there said she has a frivolous attitude when in trouble. He said "When she was in court that was her attitude." I did not ask why she had been in court. But, she was happy go lucky in the ambulance and in the trauma unit, until they moved her. Nurse later apologized and said she was giggling.

Jack has now talked with our insurance agent. Our adjuster can not see the car until next Wed. Also, our insurance does not cover a rent car. We are going to try to get along with one car. They now have the parents name and phone number. They are going after them!!!!

Lolly said...

She was carrying an insurance card. It is on the accident report. So, did they know she was not covered? Or, did the sleazy insurance company find a loop hole and are attempting to get out. MTBR

WV sUSAn said...

Lolly, the only thing TO do is go after parents. What a fiasco!! Sorry you are having to go thru such a mess.

Lolly said...

Thank you, Susan. I am just so angry! However, dealing with our insurance is so pleasant. Jack called them and they are on it. I have already received a call about my medical expences. A call back! Wow...it took 6 days to hear from her insurance. Jack looked them up on the computer. They do not have a good reputation.

Lori said...

Sorry LOLLY for the insurance mess. What a pain. You do the right thing but get all the stress for the person who doesn't. Not fair. But the insurance company should get her - your insurance company, then she'll get her license yanked!!!

THELMA - so happy you are feeling better. Let's try to keep it that way. Love You! ((Big Hugs)).

Long day and non nap for me, so I'll be hitting the hay extra early tonight. Really wanted to watch American Idol.
LOLLY, do some commentary on it for me! :)

GLO, glad we have those backup rules so that you got the feather. Maybe Judy will forget to claim it tomorrow if she's first and I'll be #2, right there to grab it! No feather in this cap, yet.

PAULA, are you going to the beach this weekend with anyone special? Sorry I couldn't help but ask...oh, does Nick like him? :)

Still smiling over NX being released! YAY!

Missing KAY and hope she's having a great and pain free day. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I love you all! Have a great evening. (((Group Hug)))

Hoda said...

We are back from the hike. Saw eagle and osprey. Lolly so sad about insurance situation . I have not really read back but I saw the smoke!! I hope Jack and Joey can sort it out.
On the way to a vegan restaurant for lunch.
Prayers for wellness to every one.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I would love to go visit Hoda but I don't think I could keep up with her! :)

Change of plans with Andrew. No visit today. I know I get to see him Saturday and Sunday so sall good!

Lolly said...

Whoops, now Hoda is stuttering. Is it contagious???

Ok, Lori, will do commentary. LOL I voted last night, made a decision....I really like Joshua and his humble attitude, but no one as great as Scotty from lat year. LOL (Shhh..I still have a crush on him!)

Lolly said...

And, I was just thinking how I would like to take a few hikes with Hoda!!! More fun!

SOL+Standards of Learning

I meant to say SOL=Standards of Learning

Mema Jo said...

Just signed onto the nest - I saw 3 brown birds and it startled me until I saw the adult's white head come upward
from the food! It really puzzled me.

'Do' is done and all is well..
I did put my feet up for awhile..

Need to read some comments
as I wait for dinner..... ♥

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Just got this text from Lori:

My sisters' condition has worsened as the does goes on. They are having trouble stabilizing her fluids and that causes a whole new set of problems. She does seem to know when I am in the room with her. She seems to respond to my voice. I keep praying for her comfort. Our visits are very limited. Her care is very demanding for the staff but they are the kindest nurses i have ever met. I want to thank all of your for your calls, texts, love and prayers. We do feel your love. Please continue to pray for Kristin. This disease (addiction) can be so cruel. Some things are worse than death.

Sandi said...

Back from the vet - both dogs were way overdue for nail trims. They both hate it so much that we always put it off as long as we possibly can. As of today, Bandit is charged extra for his nail trims b/c he tried to bite the vet techs and had to be muzzled. Happy days!

Lolly, so sorry about the uninsured teenaged driver - what a PIA!!

Sharon, the prognosis doesn't sound good for Lori's sister; prayers continue for her.

One of the peaglets (Missy??) is standing at the launch pad at attention, with both of her wings outstretched. She's a beauty!! Hope she doesn't catch a breeze!!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I need to be under that nest gathering those little white featherlets coming off!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Belle in for a little bit of feeding. Not sure what she was feeding them. She just took off. The babies were cocking their heads back and forth watching her fly off.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Babes are pecking at each other now.

Mema Jo said...

Sharon - I linger on the thought of Lori when she said -- 'Keep praying for her comfort'. There are so many set backs for burn victims. Prayers continue

Mema Jo said...

Sandi - an animal that bites a vet tech
- don't they train them how to avoid or protect themselves....

We have to get Lynne on this one! lol

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I really cannot imagine how someone could live with burns so extensive.

Mema Jo said...

Sharon - they usually don't make it - to think of 90% of your body - I knew of a military person - From Iraq - treated at the best center located in TX
They thought he was almost stabilized &
he took a turn for the worst and didn't make it. Pray for Kristen's comfort.
God will take her I'm sure. :(

wvgal_dana said...

If Kristen would make it through this there is a new thing dcotors are doing for burn patients.

Lolly said...

Watching AI also see Belle in the nest with the eaglets. Nice to see her, don't see her very often now days.

paula eagleholic said...

What a beautiful sight to see..Belle in the nest, One eaglet eating, the other laying in the middle of the nest ☺

Lolly said...

Belle just took dinner away from them. LOL

paula eagleholic said...

Belle snagged the big fish back from eaglet, she will probably feed them now...yes she does.

Lolly said...

Ok, guess she is going to feed them.

Lolly said...

Hi Paula! When are you heading to Paradise?

paula eagleholic said...

Worked late last night, then had a couple of stops. Went to grab a bite to eat with Special ♥ (aka Kooger Studmuffin). Got off on time tonight, and just finished mowing the whole yard!

Going to beach with Brother, friend is at his place, he hasn't been there for 2 weeks either...3 for me.

Oh yes, Nick likes him and his doggie too ♥ She is a small labradoodle...her name is Pepper.

Lolly, sue sue sue...and yes, get some pain and suffering while they are suing!!

If you get a rental car, then you can sue for that too.??

What? Donna Summer is gone? Sandi, glad your Mom has had a lot of showing, someone is bound to buy it.

Sharon, so sorry about Kristen.

Coworker's stepfather had a heart attack, he is on life support...they decided today to let him go...no brain activity. Death is certainly a part of life...

JudyE, cute about Jordyn and the shoes!

Belle feeding both chicklets., think Missy is to her right.

paula eagleholic said...

Fish is gone!

paula eagleholic said...

Heading to beach Friday night!

Then next weekend is Memorial Day, can't believe it's so soon...May has flown by.

Lolly said...

Insurance company will be going after them. It will go to court, I am sure.

What....ads on the cam? No, No, No!

Lolly said...

What is happening? They took off the cam for a show?

Lolly said...

Ok, I have the cam back. That was weird!

magpie said...

Oh Paula, so very sorry for your co-workers father...that is so difficult...when it is time to let a loved one go

Good Evening Eagle Pals xo
A totally perfect West Virginia Day today, the kind that Lynn would totally approve of

xo

Lolly said...

Lori, nothing is happening so far. Adam Lambert sang as well as Lisa Marie.

They are really dragging it out.

magpie said...

When I bring up the nest, I hold my breath until I see two peaglets in there...


Sharon...touching post about Lori's report to you...about her sister, the nurses, and all...
so sad

magpie said...

I heard a yellow-billed cuckoo this morning at my brother in law's- it instantly brought Lynn to mind

Also saw two bunnies mating this evening, never saw that before :)

Lolly said...

Bunny porn?

paula eagleholic said...

Forgot to say Welcome Back to Tbird!

magpie said...

Lolly:
that whole situation with little Miss Priss,and the insurance, is a "train wreck" as we say....

I will be very interested to see how it all works out....and a part of me has sadness that a youngster has turned out this way.....does not sound like she is prepared for the future...

So sorry it is all such a hassle !!!!

magpie said...

babies are frisky! temps are cool...great evening it is....

magpie said...

Jo
I got my "do" done also.
Now,to find out if Blondes or wannabe Blondes have more fun...
well, it is only a little bit kind of blonde

Lolly said...

Time to post a picture, Margy!

Lynne2 said...

well I just posted and was struck by the blogger cop.

Prayers Sharon, for Lori, Kristen and family.

And prayers for Melissa Jo.

So sorry about the rotten insurance situation Lolly....but interesting that the girl's parents would allow her to drive uninsured. Something just ain't right there, and I hope they DO go after them.

JO, vet people get snapped at all the time and sometimes bitten despite all of the precautions. And toenail trims bring out the worst in many pets! Can turn the most loveable ball of fluff into a Tasmanian Devil!

magpie said...

Yes Lolly :)
it was pretty comical

there are five very frisky rabbits I have seen on Dwain's property, I have a feeling I am going to see more !

magpie said...

I probably knocked you off Lynne,
and here now, at the laptop, the comment box is back up at the top ...
sigh...

magpie said...

Sandi, sounds very promising for your Mom's place...best wishes on all that


Okay, Paula's friend likes Nick, and vice versa, Paula like's friend's Pepper labradoodle, and vice versa....sounds pretty good to me !!
Very happy about all this...

magpie said...

Lolly
Pictures of the bunnies, or the new semi-kinda of blonde magpie ?
:)

Lolly said...

Jessica is in the final. Now, who is next????

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

We want a picture of the blonde Magpie!

Lolly said...

Philip Philips is going against Jessica nest week.

A new Magpie...I wanna see a semi blonde magpie!!!!

Lolly said...

Is your favorite color clear now?

magpie said...

well, time to get to the projects....I know there are way more things I should be commenting on...

will try to be back a little later on...

Thanks Shirley, for SOL -
I understand...
and, well, hello to you and I hope Kat feels better and better each day.

Bet Judie is just about in Freedom-from-wannabe-adult Heaven !

ttfn xoxox

Lolly said...

Joshua went out in great style!!!

magpie said...

I'll see what I can come up with, Ladies, now that I can see more CLEARLY...
maybe James will take a picture this week-end for me.

xo

Lolly said...

Paula, are you watchin Grey's? It is awful!!!!

Ok,Magpie...see that you get James to take a great picture of the new do!!! I am sure it looks stunning and I am so glad you can see more CLEARLY!! Lynne will love that!

paula eagleholic said...

No Lolly, I am not...awful how? Bad show or sad show...it's the plane crash...correcct?

magpie said...

Whee Doggy, Venus is seriously dazzling tonight !

ISS makes some early morning flyovers coming up in a few days...

haven't seen it for soooo long

Lynne2 said...

What does a blonde OWL say?

Lolly said...

It is very very sad!!!!!

Lolly said...

Whoooo Whoooo??????

Lolly said...

Yes, Paula....it is the plane crash. One has died already...more to be revealed!

Lynne2 said...

No....it says

What? What?

Lolly said...

Boooo Hisssss!

Lynne2 said...

NO NO NO Looly....BOO HISS is what the SCAREY SNAKE says!

Lynne2 said...

Have my bad jokes run everyone off?

I need to get to bed, have to be in extra early for a drop off in the AM. Heartworm positive dog begins treatments tomorrow.

Can't wait to see MARGY's new do!

Yellow Billed Cuckoo....I well remember the day on here that Lynn and I both heard the sound of the bird on practically the same day! No idea what the strange sound was... Took some research but we finally figured it out!

Goodnight and prayers for all!

Lolly said...

Watching TV, you did not run me off. But, those really are bad! LOL

Nitie Nite!!!! (((hugs)))

Lynne2 said...

OH! Nest construction has begun on a new BB nest this morning! No idea if same pair or different pair, but this time they are using the box out front!

OH...one more thing...

I may have mentioned in the past about the big DUMP that we have here...Paula has seen it. WELL...seems that someone has made a complaint, and my former Landlord has 30 days to REMOVE EVERYTHING!!! OMG...I don't know how he's going to do it! I'm upset because I fear the gray fox has a den back there under one of the old trucks, and I know there are opossums and raccoons and skunks and chipmunks and the probably ALL have nests and babies this time of year. Not to mention all of the birds nesting in the debris....WORST possible time for this to happen :(

It's ugly back there...but it certainly provides a lot of habitat. GRRRRRRRR

stronghunter said...

Vets getting bitten--Never had a dog to bite a vet that I know of, but we had a ferocious hamster. She bit every member of the family, the lady at the pet store, AND the vet.

We named her Natasha and we loved her, believe it or not.

stronghunter said...

Sad development, Lynne. I'm confused. This is your former landlord? No longer your landlord?

paula eagleholic said...

Lynn, sorry about the critters, but the dump does need to be cleaned up!

stronghunter said...

Time for me to wind things down and go upstairs. I will see you tomorrow. Good night. Rest well, everyone.

Lynne2 said...

I'm still here! LOL! Playing WWF instead of getting to bed!

Shirley, I used to live next door. The dumping grounds belong to that, my former landlord, Ken. His daughter is married to my current landlord. It's a family affair.

There are at least 10 old school buses, trucks, cars and motorcycles back there, leaking God knows what in to the ground over the years. That's another problem for him...illegal to have un-tagged vehicles. There are about 6 old riding mowers, about 6 or 7 old oil tanks. Old air conditioners, tires, and tons and tons of old building parts, scrap metal, exercise equipment, furniture....it's about, oh, maybe an acre altogether. Much of it gets pushed with the dozer over the hill, and a guy that does landscaping brings HIS debris here, and they push THAT over the hill to cover the junk! The problem started when he got a complaint about dirt and mud all over the road at the bottom of the hill...someone complained about that, and the county guy came out to investigate. Guess it was the same people who complained.

It really is a bad time of year, but on the bright side, the ugly mess will be gone, and hopefully natural habitat will soon take over! I'll have to take some pictures.

At least the Former LL has equipment like a dump truck and a backhoe to clean up the mess...although I can't see it getting done in 30 days. It's been here for YEARS and YEARS based on the models of some of the cars! Many people bring pickup trucks and trailer full of stuff to dump back there.

Mema Jo said...

Lynne - from what I am hearing you say - you may have a lot of 4 legged critters to feed on your back porch!
You will have your own wildlife preserve!

Lolly said...

Hopefully the critters will move on to new territory. If the fox has babes, she can carry them to a new home.

Mema Jo said...

Margy I am sure the blonde highlights look great! I bet you feel specially uplifted! I asked for silver highlights
today and they said highlights don't come in silver!

Lynne2 said...

LOL Jo! Oh how I wish I could be here to monitor the clean up every day and help any in need. I am sure there are salamander, frogs, toads and snakes living back there as well as the cute and fuzzies. He's a big snake hater and will kill them. He isn't much on nature, period. I would gladly offer safe harbor for all!

Lynne2 said...

True Lolly, and it's actually LATE in baby season. I hope as the work progresses, many creatures will see the danger coming and get out!

Lolly said...

One time at the end of May we were having a yard party. As our guests were arriving they saw a fox, cutting across our far front. She was carrying a babe. She went to the back yard of the vacant house next door. There was a storage building in the back and she carried her young under that building. We watched her make several trips. It was light, about 6 in the evening.

Lynne2 said...

Awww!! I would love to see little fox babe!

Ken also asked Steve to let him know if he has any free time because he has work for him. Maybe he'll be involved in the cleanup and can save a snake or 2.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Update on Kristin:

Infection has developed and they are taking it hour by hour. :(

Mema Jo said...


Da Bear Update

Lynne2 said...

So sorry Sharon. Burns are very bad business. It's strange to think of skin as an organ, but it is, and when there is that much damage....

It's my worst fear, being badly burned.

I pray that she is being kept as comfortable as possible.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I love WWF. :-)

Lolly said...

Saying a prayer for her, Sharon. I do hope she feels no pain.

I am thinking of heading to the shower. The stress from today has left me with a headache. Also, been having a little trouble with my eyes. Do not know if it is allergies or what. During the day my eyes water a lot and in the evening they are getting all gunky, especially the last eye to be operated on. Not pink eye...almost wish it was. Hmmmm??? I see a trip to the eye doctor coming up.

Night all! SED!!!!

Lynne2 said...

Really time for bed now.....

Catch you all in the morrow, at some point!

paula eagleholic said...

I want to see a pic of Margy, too!

Doing laundry and paying bills and trying to get ready for the beach...

Lynne, how is Steve's job?

Lynne2 said...

He really likes it Paula! BUT...busy season now, and he'll be working most Saturdays. His regular day off will be Friday. This is bad news because he won't have 2 days off in a row, and we'll only have one day off together. We'll be pretty useless for getting to my MILs to help them out this summer :(
But, it can't be helped.

paula eagleholic said...

Glad he really likes it, Lynne!

Heading to bed.

(((Love and hugs for all)))♥

Mema Jo said...

Well, I have 2 kits sitting here looking at me like 'can we go to bed now'? How can I say 'No'.

Good Night Everyone and God Bless All
Prayers for all in need
Warm thoughts of Carolyn and Christie

Hi Hoda - Enjoy the day!

Jewels said...

Hello Eaglet Momsters and Dadsters! Sis an I went to Mom's today. Went thru some stuff. CLeaned out a dresser. FInished the ins paperwork and did the probate papers. I hope we completed that. WE got side tracked many times. A neighbor is interested in the house, but they are really looking for cheap! Houses in the develpment are selling anywhere between 29 - 80 grand. Ugh! For probate we said its worth 200 grand, that way if its auctioned and it brings higher than we think, we do not pay any taxes on the overage. As Christie and I said our byes and we were getting into our vehicles, we heard a owl hoot. We both said that was Mom!! Awwwww felt her warmth at that very moment!!

Prayer for Kristen. So scarey it is for the family. I am sure she is not feeling the pain she is in, but I just cannot imagine!!!

Margy and Jo, both of you have new Do's?? I hope to get mine by the end of the month!!!

Costume Lady said...

Hey, Jewels...me too! How much are you getting cut off? I'm getting about 5 inches and a perm. I'm getting too old for long hair:)

Capt. Gene and I got the tomatoes and peppers planted today. One tomato plant has Jo's name on it:) Peppers are green, yellow and red. Won't they be GOOD, HODA?
Still have squash to plant, then we will be done! Seeds that we planted last week popped right up with the nice rain we had. Mesculin lettuce, chard, spinach, red onions, jade beans, cucumbers and in the corner of the garden is 6 MILKWEED plants from the seeds I got at NCTC (about 3 1/2ft. tall) Haven't seen any monarchs yet:( They are probably all at MEAGAN'S SIPPING FROM HER BUTTERFLY BUSH:)

I'm going back over today's comments, but just in case I do a KEYBOARD FACEPLANT, I will say good night now.

LOVE YOU ALL
MANY PRAYERS BEING SAID
SLEEP WELL

KAY♥
CAROLYN & CHRISTIE♥♥

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Everyone,

Gosh, it's getting really late!
I haven't caught up here completely, but I really need to get to bed. Have been going to Sis- and Bro-in-law's house to feed and take care of the bulldogs, morning and night. Getting sleep deprived, since I usually go back to sleep in the morning after Ken goes to work. Haven't done that for the last 2 days. I'm sure I will be taking a panda nap tomorrow afternoon!

Made some progress on the doctor reports. Must stay on task!

Sharon, mega prayers ongoing for Lori, Kristen, Joe, Haley, and the whole family. Such a sad situation!
It's hard to wrap your head around it.... Glad to hear that Thelma is better! God bless T-Bird!

Jo, prayers continue for Melissa Jo.

Lolly, prayers for your insurance situation with the 17-year-old girl. Hope things work out OK.

Special prayers and heartfelt thoughts for Carolyn and Christie and family. I know how difficult it is to try to take care of paperwork, and clean out a house, and my heart is with you. I love both of you so much! (((HUGS)))!!!

Margy and Jo, hoping to see pictures of your new dos before too long.

Judie, glad to hear that Gracie is doing so well she can lose the Elizabethan collar! Good news!

Well, I'm doing face plants here.
The porch light is on. Both security systems are enabled. Prayers have been said for everyone, and for every creature.
Sleep well, everybody. God bless, and goodnight. Love all of you!
Love ♥♥Lynn♥♥ forever! I ♥ us!

Lori said...

LOLLY, thanks for the American Idol update. I really appreciate it!

All caught up but no time to blog or even punctuate properly! Have a great morning all! Off to get ready for RED Friday!

Sandi said...

Good Friday morning Lori!

Jewels, I cried when I read your post about cleaning out a dresser at your mom's. As I've been going through all my mom's stuff to get her to throw away things she doesn't need/use/wear anymore, there have been times that I've gotten so impatient with her. Your post reminded me that at least I'm spending time WITH my mom doing the cleaning out - I'm not cleaning stuff out b/c she's gone. I take back every single impatient thought I've had lately. My heart hurts for you and Christie; I hope you find things that make you smile as you struggle with this painful chore.

Praying for no pain for Kristen, healing for Melissa Jo, and a good day for Kay today. Secretary said she would call Josh's mom today so I should have an update.

Kids should be super cranked today - 8th grade dance tonight. Lots of girls will be leaving this afternoon to get their hair and nails done. It's a fun evening - I love seeing them all dressed up!

HAGD all!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good morning my eagle budlets. One of our babes is splayed out in the middle of the nest and the other is sitting at 6 o'clock right below the camera.

JudyE said...

GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDS

Good morning!

Wingersizing in the nest this morning.

Janet said...

Friday my friends and GOOD MORNING!

MAGPIE; SOL = Standards of Learning. in TN we have TCAP= Tennessee Comprehensive Academic P???? can't remember the last bit, but you get the idea.


SANDI: i appreciate the fact that this school encourages these kids to be more than they think they can be. most of these kids are "innercity" financially disadvantaged kids or who, like livvy came from a "school at risk". livvy had a visual problem that put her behind, and this school has brought her up to par! :)

LINDA: so glad to be able to add to your vernacular! lol. although i don't participate in it really often, sometimes retail therapy is just what a gal needs to lift her spirits! :D

Ice skating went well last night. Livvy fell very little, although they all looked rather like foals on new legs, lol. Poor Jack did a face plant on the ice and had a bloody nose/ from both nostrils! the poor kid has such a sensitive stomach, when potty training, when he saw his own bm he would puke...even when he was still in diapers....so i was concerned, but he did okay. ice blades cut his finger too. but he got back out there. mia (amelia) had a more difficult time, but adjusted and had fun. and olivia, wow, she amazes me with the fact that she takes to this so well and she is finally DOING something!!! (fingers crossed!!!)

i was so tired after my retreat last night. day two is today so i will be cutting this short. it is at Montgomery Bell State Park and being out in the heat all day is tough when you don't do that on a normal basis!

have a beautiful day. sending light and love to all , but especially those in need. may you walk in light and beauty today!

Judie said...

Good morning!

Good news from Chrissy. EJ has a chick. Was lucky to look just as she was feeding it. Osprey season is upon us.

Our two just lazing in the sun.

Hi Thelma. So glad you feel some better.

Lolly, what a truly unfortunate situation. Cannot blame you for being upset but I'm sure your insurance company will win the fight.

Paula, have a wonderful time at the beach. Weather should be super nice.

Oh, Margy is sorta blonde so she should be having even more fun than ever before. Wonder if Tom Sweetie will bring dinner to celebrate.

Wanda is about 5" shorter -- um, her hair that is. Not too old for long hair just too hot in the summer for long hair.

Sharon, continued prayers for Kristen and her family.

Hi to Jo, Andy, Sandi, Lori, JudyE, Lynne, and any others I missed along the way.

Yes, the wannabe adults are on their own. I have no further responsibility. I wish them well but am so happy to say goodbye to this group.

Grace's incision was not healing properly so the incision was cleaned and back on is the dreaded collar. She was not happy. Still have to apply topical antibiotic 3x/day and she goes back again next week. Audrey is fine.

Off to find some coffee and the newspaper. BBL

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

magpie said...

GOOD MORNING ☼ T-BIRD....FROM ONE OF THE PEEPS....
XOXOX ☺ ♥

magpie said...

And Good Morning to Every One Else...

Sandi...your post is so moving,about helping your Mom...
I struggle with things like that in "other arenas" so to speak, that and it is good to have your words as encouragement...

(( Hugs )

magpie said...

Whoops left one of the arms off the Hugs

(( HUGS ))

Judie, hope that Grace will be her good ole Gracie self in no time flat

magpie said...

Hey
Nice Google Image today...

magpie said...

Lori
Every Body Wants to Rule the World was blaring when I pulled into the work parking lot...

I Love Tears for Fears



Oh,
saw three nice doe's (does) in the bck yard of the brother in law's this morning...

magpie said...

antoher perfectly wonderful West Virginia Day, the kind Lynn ♥ would approve of

also, RED FRIDAY...I got my red shirt on....
God Bless Our Military, today, everyday

magpie said...

Lynne2:
my comment box is back on the bottom...
on the laptop it was at the top
too mysterious for me

magpie said...

Oh, one of the Peaglets is moving a piece of lumber around, or trying to ...

magpie said...

Okay
time to try to make enough dough to put together a few biscuits.

Hoping to get some gardening going this week-end !! I am experiencing Wildlife Deficit Disorder, and Patio Plants Deficit Disorder....

magpie said...

So, on that note:

Best Wishes for a Good Day for Everyone, with prayers for our friends and family in need of healing and wellness, and comfort


I'm getting the bulletin out one by one, should be able to get a lot of those taken care of this week-end

xoxox (( Hugs )) ♥ ☺

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Magpie, I think it depends on the size of your screen whether the comment box is on the top of bottom. On my laptop, with a larger screen, it is at the right side. On my work computer, which is a smaller screen, it is at the bottom.

magpie said...

♥♥♥Christie, Carolyn, Lynn ♥♥♥

magpie said...

Oh
Yay on the EJ-Egg, Judie...thanks for the Osprey news.... !

magpie said...

Okey E-E, it's kind of the reverse for me then.....larger computer screen, box on bottom
smaller, box on top

Hey! Good Morning, and I hope your week-end goes great !

magpie said...

I am seeing a lot of birds, and hearing a lot more then I am seeing

Song Sparrow, towhee, mockingbird, browh thrasher, indigo buntings, catbird, robins,
Caroline wrens, yellow-billed cuckooo, bunny rabbits and three deer, whoops those last two aren't birds !!

magpie said...

ttfn got to earn my pay now...
xo

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

My heart just fell. I didn't see the turd behind the trunk.

magpie said...

yes
there are going to more of those heart flip-flopping days to come for sure, Shraron

magpie said...

the shadow in the top left corner 11 o'clock spot looks like an eaglet also...

magpie said...

is it the shadow of a perched adult?
I can't tell

magpie said...

Kestrel babies are all talons and fuzzy feathers

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Magpie, I haven't seen the shadow move so it must just be that stump.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Out to mow very soon. Loved the discussion on dos! Mine keeps getting shorter and shorter. I used to wear it all one length, then my hairdresser retired. Becky is my new hairdresser and I think she is much better. She encouraged me to try different lengths and each time she cuts it gets shorter, but I like it. When Barbara cut different lenghts I did not like it. Anyway, my hair is really short now and of course it has blonde highlights. Gotta have my excuse!

Lolly said...

Sharon, thinking of Kristen this morning. Did she make it through the night? Prayers that she is not aware and in pain.

Christie and Carolyn..loved the owl story. I remember after Daddy died a butterfly kept flying around me...I just knew it was daddy's enfluence!!!

Do not completely understand why the house will be auctioned and not sold. I know it is really painful to go to the house and go through belongings. Try to find humor and good memories. I remember going through Mother's medicine cabinet and throwing stuff out. I threw out her dental floss and I could hear her scolding me. LOL When she was in her last days she wanted some dental floss. I cut a long length off for her and she scolded me for using so much and here I was, throwing out the whole thing! Yikes! We laughed.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Red Friday Morning Sandi, Sharon, JudyE, Shirley Janet, Judie, Thelma, Margy, Lolly and Lurkers.

Jewels I loved what you wrote about when you and Christie was leaving your Moms. You heard the owl and knew she was watching over the two of you.♥LYNN♥

Prayers fontinue for Kristen and Joe and Lori and family. I just can't imiagine poor Kristen. May God Be With Her.

Praying that Kay has a good day and for her time in June for surgery.

Hoping to hear an update on Josh.

Thinking of our Dadster Red.

Judie I feel badly for poor grace. Hoping the incision heals and she can get that collar off. Than you for the new of the baby osprey for EJ. :)

Margy if Lynn was always the first to see doe. Then when you saw them this morning in your brother-in-laws yard. ♥Lynn was right there watching with you♥.

wvgal_dana said...

Lynne2 I can understand you concern for the crittters living at the dump. Praying that God finds each a new home within the woods or other buildings.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

The only thing I have heard about Kristin this morning is that they were going to redress her burns and that takes about 3 hours. :(

Lolly said...

Thanks for the update, Sharon. Prayers.

Off to eat breakfast and then mow.

Later Gators!

magpie said...

It was the fawns that Lynn seemd to alway see first, DanaWV....
always remember her referring to seeing a Spotty

but I'll take a symbol of a visit from those three stately lady deer this morning either way ♥

Mema Jo said...

It's a late morning Hello! I am visiting
with both Kristen and Jennifer - Love my daughters. Kristen & her dad went for
coffee and she said maybe dad will take me to GoodWill - how about that Margy? lol

Happy about the hatch at Loch of Lowes.
She has done it again!
I realize that our guy and gal will be off into the wild blue very soon. Happy we have had a successful season!

Love to all of you especially Carolyn and Christie. Sandi your remarks about your mom cleaning house are very understandable - It is amazing how each of our thoughts intertwine with others - I LOVE US

Judie said...

Good morning, again.

Jo, sounds as if you have another fun day ahead. If you get to Goodwill, check out the bibbs. You might could give Margy a run for her fashion status.

Have steamed the squash to make casserole later. Dinner to be squash casserole with spinach salad and garlic bread.

Laundry and ironing caught up so think I will do some reading for pleasure today. Won't fight if my eyelids droop.

Bye

magpie said...

Oh I'm Jonesim for some new bibs...my all time favorites...are really getting worn and tattered....they were the ones I wore to My Very First Nest Visit in June 2008 -

that's teh same day I met some Very Important People in my life...

magpie said...

so Jo, yes, indeedy....a trip to Goodwill....
my kind of retail therapy....the shirt I am wearing today, zip up sleeveless red shirt, is my most recent purchase....
it's kind of like seersucker material

magpie said...

Jonesim = Jonesin'

wow, what a super duper day to head to the beach, Paula...
I just love the thought of it...the sand, the breezes, the birdlife...
Nick...
Your son Michael....
I can think of only one thing that might make it a wee bit better ♥

magpie said...

JUDIE

I LOVE THE NEW AVATAR. PERFECT CHANGE UP. JO LIKES CARDINALS, JO LIKES CATS...

wvgal_dana said...

Oh yes Jo and Margy the great store to buy what you need at a good price. Mother and I often hit Goodwill :)

magpie said...

Nostalgia,
Memories,
Sentimentality,
Bereavement....


Makes us cry, but in a way, sure gives us some untouchable kind of grace and strength...


better get back to work before my work table gets all spashed with tears

xoxox Love you, Pals...

wvgal_dana said...

Watching the little tiny white fuzz fly off of the eaglets and fly through the air. Preening and Preening.

I love you too Margy xxxooo ♥

I ♥ ALL OF YOU AND I EVEN ASK FOR FORGIVENESS FOR ANY WRONG OR HARM I HAVE DONE TO ANY OF YOU. I LIKE WHAT JUDYE WRITES AT THE END OF SOME OF HER COMMENTS:

"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone is fighting some kind of battle."

Mema Jo said...

Sandi - you could have the most expensive flower garden in your front
yard if you planted in your TUB.

I am not going to be
staying long periods of time here
Just in and out

Hoda said...

Good morning all. On my way up Elephant Mountain. Hoping to reach Pulpit Rock and a view of Nelson . Hope all are well.

Lori said...

OH, look at HODA, all wifi on the blog climbing a mountain with her iphone! You, HODA, are something else! I know you are having a great time.

Lori said...

Waiting on updates on JOSH & KRISTEN. Prayers continue.

Have I said I Love Us, lately? I do!!!

wvgal_dana said...

Did anyone see the height our eaglet got ??

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Latest text from Lori:

My sister had a stable night. I was able to spend about an hour with her this morning. She responded to my voice, was able to nod yes when I asked her if she could hear me. She knew who I was and that I had been with her as often as they would let me, so some progress and hope today. Thank you all once again for your love and prayers. My family feels it, I feel it and we need it. Please continue to pray for Kristin.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I just returned from lunch with Andrew and Kelsey! I love that boy!

Costume Lady said...

Hello...anybody home?

I just read Lolly's comments about her Insurance Co. not giving her a rental car. I can't imagine that...
After this fiasco is all over, I would certainly give thought to finding a NEW Insurance Co.! We have just a common (no bells and whistles) insurance policy, but was given a rental when we had a "totaled" accident! (Nationwide)

I just mowed about half of our lawn...the first time in 2 years. I must say it felt GREAT!! My Bio-Tech knee worked great. Love it, Love it!!

JEWELS, I am thinking that maybe you should talk to a realtor before you decide to Auction Momma's house. Auctions DO NOT bring very much money on a house, plus, you have to pay them 20-25% commission. If you wish, I can talk to a good friend who is a realtor and ask his opinion.

Judie, speaking of my hair being too long...when it is long, I can twist the back of it and pin it up off my neck and that helps tremendously, but up on top of my head makes me look so matronly and I'm not ready to look like a GRANDMA, even though I am;)

Time to wash and curl, and dry this hair and make a meal for FAMILY FRIDAY. Karla has taken off to the OBX again with Rachael and Jayden and the new baby, Brantley...so, they will not be in the line-up tonight. Hopfully Denise and Brandon will be there!

Ms Bookworm said...

Good Morning/Afternoon, Everyone!

I've been running around like a headless chicken this morning! Have already been over to take care of the bulldogs, and I've gotten all the outside plants watered, and some of them trimmed back a bit. Going to do a bit of transcription, then head out to Wally World for the weekly grossery shopping.

Shar, prayers continue for Lori and Kristen, and family.

Anxious to hear an update about Josh. Prayers for Kay, Kathryn, Red, (Has anyone heard from him or his wife?) Linda, Carolyn & Christie, and for Gracie.

Hope everyone has a good Red Friday. I'm off to work on transcription for a bit. Later, alligators. I love ♥us♥!
♥♥Lynn♥♥

magpie said...

Hey there Andrea...
I can sort of relate but I am not nearly so busy as you! Going between two roosts daily ...
hoe you can rest and relax soon

magpie said...

Hey there WANDA .
I can sort of relate:
had to choose between perm or highlights yesterday...took the highlights....BUT, after a perm settles down a bit, it actually IS easy to just toss it up and clip....

but I know the matronly feel/look
regarding myself and am not too crazy about it either....

magpie said...

having a wee bit of trouble getting live feed to open


see you there Sharon, glad you got a kid visit in

JudyE said...

Our nest one at 520 snoozing and the other at 10 snoozing

WhiteRock two chick sleeping
MinnBound both parents watching opposite ends
Glos nest one parent in nest
WVA can't get it up
Alcoa nest wow 3 big chicks and one parent
OK Stillwater one in nest
CA nest two eaglet
DECORAH two sleep one awake
JordanLake chick awake

and here Jordyn is still napping We were going to go to the Suncoast seabird Sanctuary but didn't when I couldn't seem to find it they are so small and I forgot the address so we stopped by the beach and stayed a little She fell in when the wave came crashing in she didn't mid at all so now I know she like the beach we will start going there the last time I took her she wanted no part of it

Lolly said...

In from mowing, edging, and blowing. Then made a few "Lolly Piles" but picked them up. LOL "Lolly Piles" is what Jack calls piles of weeds, twigs, or dead flowers that I pull and pile up. I have a reputation of leaving them all over the yard, but I am doing better!

Have showerd and washed my hair and we have turned on the AC today. Presently 87...groan!

Wanda, our insurance we get through Joey. No chance of changing insurance. Possibly get better, but this is one way we help him out. I hate driving Jack's truck. However, we are doing good sharing the ride and thankfully we had no plans for a trip at this time.

Wahooo!!! Just this second got a call. Another division of the insurance and I do get a rent car, but not until next Wed. when the adjuster sees the car. Oh, well...I can wait. Yea!

Lolly said...

Tomorrow is Elvis on the Square. We will be going to Denton, not sure what time. Looks like it will be a very enjoyable evening, not hot like in August.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Mammal of some kind for late lunch/early supper. Belle is plucking something.

Lolly said...

Beautiful Belle in the nest with her two eaglets! Looks like both of them are chowing down.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Belle just flew out and it sounds like someone is in the attic.

Costume Lady said...

While drying my hair, I was watching our eaglets. Shep came in with a fish? and one of the babes grabbed and mantled it immediately! The other eaglet just watched from afar while fish was eaten. Dad decided he wasn't needed so he left. Soon after, Belle flew in with her furry critter. Eaglet who was able to confiscate and mantle the fish, tried to do the same with the mammal, but Belle would have no parts of that...as she was tearing it apart, eaglet who was on the other end of the nest hopped over and snatched about half of whatever Belle was de-furring...took it to the other end of nest and peacefully ate away. Meanwhile, Belle tore off pieces of the meat and fed to a whimpering, fish stealing eaglet. What good parents Shep and Belle are!

Sandi said...

Hi all! Home to take a shower, wash my hair, paint my toenails, put on my little black dress, grab my camera, and head to the Selbyville Middle School 8th grade dance! Should be a fun evening, watching all my kids trying to act like wannabe high schoolers!

The guidance secretary called Josh's mom today but had to leave a message on her voice mail. Mom never called back - hoping that no news is good news.

Jo, wonder what my South Bethany neighbors would think of me planting flowers in my extra bathtub??? Actually, I wonder what they think of a bathtub sitting in my driveway? =)

stronghunter said...

Have fun, Sandi.

Kay said...

Have caught up with posts, but have next to no stamina left for the day. Should have come here earlier, but opted to run errands, including getting the car washed. Have a sense of urgency to have everything in order. Enjoyed reading what you've all had to say and have my prayer list revised. Happy to hear that our precious angel, LYNN, still gives a hoot ! ☺♥☺ ♫♪ Tomorrow... ♪♫ and ♫♪♫ Have I told you lately that I love you ? ♫♪♫ ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

JudyE said...
