Oh Steve!
Thanks so much...
A Brand Spanking New Friday Thread...

hope the weather has not been a problem for you, and
Happy Week-end Wishes !

magpie said...

JudyE said...

Thank for the new thread and Margy got a feather

Mema Jo said...

Good morning friends Thank you Steve for the Fresh Friday Thread. Storms were fierce last evening and I hope your power is up/running. Steve with the cams being down could we get info on any sightings like when you arrive in the morning or any other time of day? Just interested it the juvies are still around.

Congrats Margy on your feather!

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

I slept in for awhile. For some reason, I was wide awake all night, so I read my book.

My tomato plant looks happy and healthy. I wondered last night if I knocked it down myself adjusting the netting. It just looked so fresh and unwilted lying there on the ground. But it still looks that way.

I did look up some info about tomato plants and it says you can reroot them. I do hope it works.

Very sad news coming out of Colorado this morning.

Thanks for the fresh thread Steve, and for the call-over Margy.

stronghunter said...

Also, there were green tomatoes with bites taken out of them and the one that was ripening was gone except for a few pieces of peel, etc. on the ground. The netting did not do that.

stronghunter said...

We had some thunder last night. It is slightly damp here this morning. Cloudy, though. So humid, it almost feels like it is raining.

Mema Jo said...

It really chills my heart when I hear of situations like CO last evening. My prayers go out with all of those families and friends. Praying also for the people that were injured for their recovery.

Mema Jo said...

Still thinking of you and praying for you, Lori! We are all happy to be here for you!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I asked Steve if he has seen the juvies and he said:

I saw one on the tree on Monday around 5. Have not seen much action otherwise...

stronghunter said...

Well said, Jo. I watched a bit of news early this morning.

Mema Jo said...

I am ready to leave for Aaron & Val's
Jenny should be here soon. Taking lunch to the kids. Sure looks like rain again.
You all take care and shout it out if you should hear from Sandi at the
Zanzibar Beach. I did read about a mishap of a ferry overturning due to stormy conditions.

There is rain out there - just a fine
rain but we do need it.
I will talk to all of you later. ♥

Lolly said...

Through with mowing an hour ago. Have showered and feel fairly comfortable sitting here. The AC man called and is on his way. oh, i do hope he can fix it today!!!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

From Hoda on Facebook: (Hoda is needing our thoughts and prayers!)

Big explosion here!!! Electricity went out. Transformer blew??? Sirens all over the place. Good time to be still too much is happening outside...
I twisted my back and am not so agile this morning!!!
Yes time to be still

JudyE said...

stronghunter said...

Prayers for Hoda.

Lolly said...

Yes, prayers for Hoda!

Answered prayers for Lolly. AC is up and working. It was a breaker. yea!!!!!!!!!!! Thank goodness as it is 97 and going up!

stronghunter said...

Good news, Lolly!!

Hoda said...

Thank you all...things are fixed and in working order.
So very sorry to hear about Colorado. What was he thinking I wonder? He thought he was The Joker??? Seriously???
PRAYERS big time...Jo said it well.

LOLLY glad the A/C is fixed.

SHIRLEY sorry about the disrupted sleep.

SHAR thanks for the report from STEVE about the Juvies.

LORI has not been on the new thread I hope she checked in in the morning. I will go read from the old thread.

It feels to me that there is lots of craziness happening in the world and I am so very grateful for our group and the love and the support and the caring amongst us.

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Everyone!

Just wanted to say hello to everyone before venturing forth to Wally World for my weekly grossery shopping pilgrimage.

Lori, prayers still, for you and Kate, that your hearts will feel less heavy. You are such a trooper!
If I were working at your job, I would be totally unable to function. Love you! (((HUGS))) Emma says, "Woof, woof, woof!" (That's puppy language for I love you!)

Glo, not certain why you couldn't sleep last night, but I've had nights of unexplained insomnia before, too. Hope you can make time for a panda nap today! ((HUGS))! Please say hello to Dex for me!

Lolly, HALLELUJAH for answered prayers! Glad your A/C is working!

Hoda, sounds like a good day to do very, very little! Prayers for your twisted back! ((HUGS))!!

Feeling very sad this morning for the situation in Colorado. Saw some of the news coverage early this morning. Prayers for the people in the theaters, and their family and friends. I'm with you, Jo, it really chills my heart, too.
You just never know anymore, in this uncertain world we live in!

Shirley, hope you find out what ate your tomato! Hope the plant re-roots itself, too. MTBR...

Well, better hit the dusty trail.
Have some prescriptions to pick up, too. Will check in later today.
Hope everyone has a good Red Friday! Have been praying for GG as she goes to the doctor today. Will be anxious to hear how that went! Later, alligators! I ♥ us!

Hoda said...

Waiting on WANDA to let us know how GG'S procedure went...hope and prayers that all is good.

Lolly said...

Grosseries bought. now 101.8 and another breaker threw. This time it is a good breaker, just over loaded what with the heat. The breaker that controls the garage and with the AC in the trailer guess it was over loaded. When we came home the garage door would not open. Skeered us!!! But all is well now.

magpie said...

Yay on the A/C Lolly, and I am so comfortable in, and proud to be wearing my New Red S.O.S. (Support Our Soldiers) Shirt !
Thank you, again and again !

I think Lori mentioned Deep Creek MD for this week-end, maybe she can still keep those plans...

Kay said...

Just a quick note to let you know I'm doing okay. We've had two days of rain, thunder storms and power outages, but it should clear up tomorrow. Will have to do some serious catching up after my son and granddaughter go home Monday. Til' then hope all is well where each of you are and be assured you are in my daily prayers ! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

magpie said...

Lolly, that is some seriously HOT weather you are having.

Hello Eagle Pals...

also possible Wanda went straight for the Friday Night Family Fun routine after the activities of the day....

magpie said...

Well there you are brightening the blog, ☼HI☼ Sunsine Kay !!

We have YOU in our prayers too...
xoxox (( Healing Hugs ))

Lolly said...

yea, margy!!! So glad you are wearing your new t-shirt. i can picture you in it! yes, seriously HOT weather.

Lolly said...

Kay, you are in our daily prayers as well!!!!

glo said...

Late afternoon. No panda nap but i tired. I am stressed over a facebook friend's post from yesterday. I HATE helpless. I know you have heard me say that before. On top of that Dex is once again not feeling so well today. I don't know whether to feed him or what to give him. It is supper time and he knows it. It is atleast a little cooler today. When I asked my vet last weekend about Dex she said its heat related. He had a really good day yesterday so I thought he was fine once again BUT not so good at all today. It has indeed been tremendously hot until today. This morning we even went for a ride, but we are home for a few days now I think.

magpie said...

OH dear Glo....sorry for the stress...I know FB is a great network most of the time, but I simply have to avoid even trying to get involved with it....
Hope things work out OK with whatever is going on....
xoxox (( Glo and Dex Hugs ))

magpie said...

Lolly
I really think you should get a prize for your avatar....
it is one of my all-time favorites !!

magpie said...

I keep trying to catch a glimpse of something on the still cam...
and can practically never get the live feed to open...
I am Jonesin' for some Eagle Views... !

magpie said...

ttfn
got some Roost chores to attend to.
Laid over tomato plant seems to be holding steady after I re-staked it and the tomato cage

Hoda said...

Sorry about the heat LOLLY and also GLO.
Glad you know why the garage door would not open and that all is well LOLLY. GLO sometimes staying in and waiting out the hot weather is really the only thing to do...
I too hope LORI keeps her weekend plans...

magpie said...

Oh Hoda...while you are close by:
I love the picture of you, the avatar...and all the Eagle Items, including the Macaroon !
It's so....YOU!!

Judie said...

Thank you Steve and wishing you and the family a very nice weekend.

Need to read back. Storm last night so shut down the computer. Had a very busy day to day.

BB soon.

Hoda said...

Thanks MARGY I am very proud to have them and they bring me a big smile...{{{{{{{GROUP HUG}}}}}}}

Lolly said...

Thanks Margy for the avatar comment. I like it as it is always easy to find. When i have to catch up, I go to my last post. Smiley sun is easy to find!

Hoda said...

OK I am logging off...Thunder and Lightening so close I jumped and I think it singed my hair!!! Kiddin' it was that close though...
BBL

Judie said...

Hoda, sure hope your back feels better quickly. Cannot imagine you not attending your yoga classes or zooming along the river in your dragon boat.

Jo, hope you had fun with Aaron and Val.

Lolly, such good news that the AC is working again. Your weather is really brutally hot.

Hi Kay.

Glo, so sorry you have an added stress to your concern for Dex not feeling well. Hope Dex will be better tomorrow.

Guessing Wanda is at GG's for Family Fun Night. Hope she posts a report on GG later.

Lolly said...

There are some unexpected storms north of us. I suggested to Jack we do a rain dance, but he refuses to go outside. Don't blame him. it is still 98.

Judie said...

Oh, forgot to answer Andy's questions about Ancestry.Com. It has taken on an addictive quality. Really fun and amazing how much information I've gathered. Decided to buy a 6 months membership. The first 14 days was a free trial. Of course, I got hooked.

Lolly, Jack is just being completely unreasonable and uncooperative. A rain dance is certainly in order.

Very sad situation in Colorado. Prayers for the victims, their families, and their friends.

Lesson for today: the event is referred to as Classic Mass Murder. Typically, mental illness can be established although intense, deep-rooted anger may be the impetus. I'm sure this event will be asked about in class this Fall.

magpie said...

Good to see you, Judie....hope any pain goes away and you continue to enjoy the ancestry, I am SURE you will find that there is ROYALTY in your past, and if not,
there is NOW !!

magpie said...

My friend's adult daughter and I nearly jumped over top of each other last night, trying to get inside from the front porch... when a very very loud clap of thunder sounded....
we think the lightning that generated it was very close !

magpie said...

Time for me to skeeedaddle along, don't care too much when the Night Bandit or Sandperson shows up, I have only one more work day until my two days off....so I'll be skating on the energy of anticipating being retired for two days.

Best wishes to EVERYONE....
xoxo ttfn xoxo
☺♥

Judie said...

Sorry Margy, but the sandperson is on alert and making a fast track to WV.

Going to shut down as a storm is moving in with big thunder boomers.

The night light is set for 11:30pm and the sandperson has already packed his travel bag.

Restful sleep for all.

Hoda said...

JUDIE I did yoga today and just modified the poses and back is getting better...spine cracked and adjusted in three spots and then I had spasms. Yoga at home today instead of the studio as I chose poses that would help the back release the spasms...thanks for your thoughts.
I wondered what you would tell your adult wanna be's this autumn as to the Aurora situation. I can not believe he was dresses as the joker!!!Very Disturbed chap...

Hoda said...

The storm has passed and I managed to cook a very good scallop and herbs in olive oil supper with Kale and rice...delicious

Oh no I hear the rumbling again...at a distance though...

Stormy day for many of us...

I agree with JUDIE LOLLY JACK should really go out for a rain dance...it is needed...tell him it is the macho thing to do!!!

JudyE said...

this was on facebook so I thought I would bring over to all on Phoenix the eaglet
Phoenix the eaglet that literally rose for the ashes

JudyE said...

Had a nice afternoon with Jordyn shopping at second hand store but didn't find any more shoes Miss Dress dresser upper did find a dress for her and a pair of Dora plastic roller skates she had a blast I put a video on the blog also the old fashion pix are right below it also if you didn't see them Jordyn on roller skates for the first time she had a blast I can't wait to take her to a roller skating rink

JudyE said...

I thinks she like going on the tile floor the best because she went fast and I held her making her go fast

JudyE said...

MARGY see one of my red shirts I found to wear HEY guys they do have them at my walmart check yours in the men dept only 5.74 cents

JudyE said...

the eagle on the shirt reminds me of Jims avatar

JudyE said...

I wonder how JIM and RED are doing been a while since we heard from them tomorrow is a 9-5 day for me Yeah

Hoda said...

Thanks for the update on Phoenix JUDYE...amazing story

JudyE said...

This is a mistake that a pilot will have a long time living down a
large military plane lands on the wrong air port runway
Amazing landing on the wrong runway at the wrong airport

this is pictures from Fox another view and the story

JudyE said...

C-17 did get to its proper airport at Ft Dill Airforce base which is real close to the other airport

they are warning on the news that driving you car is now giving more people skin cancer on the left side of their body

Hoda said...

...and one of the things that is so amazing about the US and Canada and the free world criminal justice system is that everyone is entitled to a legal defence team and one is provided...I read your not JUDYE about the chap who opened fire in Colorado and even though he is not co-operating with the investigative team he will be given a defence teame and the prosecutor is going to have to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt...God Bless the USA

JudyE said...

I meant I flet sorry for his lawyer or defense attorney someone has to defend him I just know I wouldn't want to He did it and that is that He clammed up after he got a lawyer All his firends are in shock says it not like him Something made his snap for sure

JudyE said...

I always wonder what makes people snap We had a jumper off the bridge just a little while ago The human mind is a strange thing what makes people do the things they do

JudyE said...

I bet they claim insanity No one in their right mind would or could do that But like they said he planned it to the fullest and his apt was boobie trapped too but atleast they got him and maybe he can get help the needs Because he needs it

stronghunter said...

Stopping in to say good night.

Hoping for some gentle rain tonight.

Hoda said...

Good night JO.

I know JUDYE it sounds like he planned it and years down the road we might learn why and what happened to him to cause him to think this was a doable thing in his mind.I think of his family and how they must be feeling...

Hoda said...

Is PAULA on her way to Paradise? I do not remember seeing a post saying she is going this weekend. I hope LORI is on her way for her holiday...I hope both check in.

Ms Bookworm said...

Good Evening, Everyone,

Whew, it's been a steam bath here today! It was 89, and very muggy!
Felt much warmer than that. Our afternoon breeze from the ocean is at a complete standstill--that's the problem. There is supposed to be a gradual cooling trend, down to 79 by next Wednesday. Sounds good to me! Miss Emma has been glued to the front of the fan the last couple of days. Smart puppy!

Judie, those folks at Ancestry.com sure know what they're doing with that free trial period, don't they?
I can't stop either! Have traced my dad's line back to the 1200s so far. Fascinating!

So very sad about the Colorado murders. I really feel sorry for the guy's parents. Wonder if there were any warning signs. Prayers for the whole situation!

Oh, my. It's still pretty hot here. I think I'm going to adjourn to the bedroom, where the fan is stirring things up a bit. Have said prayers for everyone, and every creature, especially for Dex and Glo. Hope you two get some heat relief SOON!
The porch light is on, and both security systems are enabled. Wishing everyone a restful night's sleep, with SED. God bless, and goodnight. Love all of you!
♥♥Thinking of Lynn♥♥
♥♥Carolyn & Christie♥♥
I ♥ us!!

magpie said...

Good Night, Eagle Pals....

Hope Sleep is Peaceful, Solid, and Restorative....

I also feel great sadness for the shooter's parents...and for so many others, with compassion for the Fire, Police and Ambulance Personnel also....but especially for the victims and their families....so horrendous...

Raining steadily here in Berkeley County....right now good soaking rain

Hope the evening was a good one for us....
Prayers for Wellness....
see you in the daytime

God Bless This Nest, and
God Bless Us, Every One
xoxo

Lolly said...

Have been reading this evening, now time to head to bed.

It is nice to be in the house, nice and comfy. Storms did reach us but only 2 tenths of an inch of rain. That is all we ever get....short showers. However, it was wet, and with the wind it cooled things off a wee bit.

night all! SED!!!

Hoda said...

SED

Goodnight

Hope everyone is safely at their roosts.
I was hoping to hear from WANDA about GG's procedure.
WANDA is on FB maybe I will hear.

PRAYERS♥

Hoda said...

WANDA is going to let us know...Thanks WANDA

I checked out the roller skating the video of you and Jordyn, that was cute! slippy slidey on those wooden floors..
I love roller skating, but the last time I skated, was BEFORE I found out I have osteoporosis....not sure it would be such a good idea now...
and also, Nice RED T-shirt you were wearing

Janet said...

Saturday morning! Good morning to one and to all!

Brain is a bit foggy here......drinking coffee. Thankfully I don't have to leave the house til nine and its Reiki share. Easy stuff. Answer a few questions, give some Reiki. Last count I have at least a half dozen showing up. That's good. :)

I have a business meeting after. I am mentoring another Reiki Master into the teaching aspect of this. It was my Reiki Master's idea and when he brought the idea to me, she immediately popped into my head. I simply know she will excel at this. :)

Went to the ice skating exhibition last night. Olivia loved the costumes and I think the actual skating as well. We shall see if she continues. I think Tom may take her back over to practice again today while I am "working".

Was watching our Luke (blue heeler) this morning. He and my dobie Sable are 12 and 13 this month (respectively). He is such an old man. He has such a hard time getting up. The tramadol does relieve the pain, but that hind leg(s) ... so weak. I had to put my hands under his belly and lift him to his feet again this morning. Once up and able to balance he can walk. Mornings seem especially bad for him. Other than that he is doing fine....but they both lie around and snooze a lot now. (Especially since ALL the extra fur babies are not here anymore!) Maybe they are resting up from the adventure.

Wow, 7:30 already. Guess I'd best get on and get busy. Have a wonderful day to one and all. (((((((HUGS)))))) light and love!

Judie said...

Good morning everyone.

Stormy last night and overcast this morning. Street and sidewalks are wet. Um, also the grass.

Glad Paula arrived safely in Paradise.

Hope there will be an update on GG.

Isn't it great that Jordyn has so much energy and a grandma willing to encourage her.

Margy, have a quiet day at work.

Jo, enjoy the family time and being with Vincent.

To us, individuals who commit horrific crimes only appear to "snap." In reality, there are pre-existing issues that are triggered by some stimulus - so it appears to us he/she has just suddenly lost control. Reality, the path to the crime has been traveled for some time. Because of Holmes appearance, the types of weapons involved, his isolation, I suspect delusional disorder -- at the time he committed the crime, he truly believed he was The Joker. Crazy to us but reality for him.

Have as good a morning as possible.

Lori said...

Good morning from Deep Creek Lake, MD.

had an easy drive here and nice dinner at Dutches last night. It is owned by th

Lori said...

The same people who own the restaurant in Frederick.

Getting ready to go to the fairgrounds for a quilt auction!!!

Have a great day all... I love you and will try to check in later.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Going to be another VERY HOT day! Going to start loading clothes, etc. into the trailer. Already started loading the refrig.

We are sooooo ready to head out! Laurel and boys will come tomorrow afternoon and we head out Monday morn after taking Annie to camp at the vets. I like leaving her there. When we took her in he remarked about how much water she drinks the last time she stayed there. I liked that....he knows her!!

Lolly said...

Wish I was at Paula's paradise enjoying rain!

A quilt auction? Wait for me....I wanna go!!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Morning all :)

Overcast here but temps are nice

All 3 osprey chicks are doing fine...one has already fledged!

paula eagleholic said...

Lori...sounds like a great weekend...and Dutches food...yum

Mema Jo said...

Hello! It is a Soggy Saturday here!
Judie thanks for the info on the "snap" idea - I'm sure he had this planned and geared up for it for months if not longer! I pray that someone didn't see this coming - but too late now.

Lori - Great food - I'm glad you found it!
Paula - enjoy your weekend even if the sun doesn't shine too brightly!
Hoda - thank you for bringing over Sandi's remarks. I was so relieved to see her on FB. Yesterday after reading about the Ferry capsizing I was on pins and needles there until she commented!
Well, tonight it is mass at 5:00 and then up the road to hold my newest ggs, Vincent. I'll have to take turns because his MEME and 2 great aunts are going to be anxious to hold him. I think we should all just let him lie on the bed and we all just watch him - after I hold him of course!

Mema Jo said...

I hope Lori finds a great quilt or at least gets some good ideas for patterns.
Up in western MD when the winters are so long - the quilting thrives!

Mema Jo said...

It's time for me to start my day and get away from this additive computer.
See you later, Friends.

glo said...

Good morning almost afternoon I guess. Hope everyone is doing well and has some good plans for the weekend. Heat returning here so will be home. Let's see I could do some housework. OK maybe just a little. I could find a good movie. I will try and then that panda nap. Dex seems pretty good so far this morning. I am planning on giving him 3 or 4 small meals today.

Lolly said...

roflmbo....Jo, woman after my own heart. Just let him lie on the bed, AFTER you hold him. Love it!

Learning to do caps a different way, always using the right shift key. A little awkward typing. ☺

Lolly said...

Glo, very happy for you that Dex seems a little better today.

stronghunter said...

Good early afternoon.

Drizzly day today. Really what we need. It has been too hot and too dry for so long.

Drove by some cornfields yesterday. They look terrible. Just not enough rain. I am afraid this rain is going to be too late. But I am not an expert.

Such sad news from Colorado. I have contacted my brother in Fort Collins. He commented that he has trouble staying up until 9:00 PM, so he would not be attending such a late movie. Also, Aurora is a bit of a drive, so he did not think he would likely have friends there.

Interesting thoughts, Judie. He thought he was truly the Joker. I do remember being told in psych class that the neurotic builds castles in the sky and the psychotic lives in them, or something like that. I guess this would be an example of living in the castle--completely losing touch with reality.

stronghunter said...

Have been in touch with my cousin Virginia. She is in South Carolina now, still doing research. Her air conditioning broke down again, and she is trying to get satisfaction from the company here who fixed it.

Lolly said...

Have heard on fb from a cousin's daughter. She and her family live in Aurora, CO. They are fine, certainly hope they did not have friends at the movie.

Costume Lady said...

I was so sure that I was on here last night to let you know how GG did with her procedure...can't find comments anywhere. Maybe on another page??

Due to GG's Atrial Fibrillation, she had to be put to sleep (a very light sleep) and that concerned us all! Doctor said she did well and still has one more procedure to go.
This all concerns her quality of life...more important to try to get rid of her pain so that her quality of life will be worth living...living is no good if you are consumed with pain always. Doctors said she has her main artery/valve? nearly closed, but would NOT consider surgery at her age. I'm wondering if a STENT in that valve would be too invasive? I suppose we will get rid of the pain first, then talk about the heart~

magpie said...

oh dear me, Wanda....
I hope everything does go really well for GG, sounds like the doctors know what they are doing, and I hope GG likes them also

stronghunter said...

Prayers and all good wishes for GG, Wanda.

Good news about your cousin's daughter, Lolly.

I just sent out a message to a friend I have in Littleton, CO. I do not hear from her often.

magpie said...

Wanda..
I do remember that Hoda said she "saw you" on FB late last night so maybe that is where you were...and not on here....

xo

Mema Jo said...

Report from Sandi today...
Spice tour, lunch and shopping in Stone Town, then visited the site of an old slave market, which is now an Anglican church. Another great day though it is exhausting haggling over the prices of everything!

Mema Jo said...

Wanda You commented on the blog late late last Friday evening or Early early Friday am.before you went to bed - it was really the day before you had
taken GG in for her test.

Reading over the blog and saw where LORI decided to let FLO BEAR go to the RAINBOW BRIDGE. How brave and thoughtful,LORI. He is at peace now, no more suffering.
Prayers for your heart to heal very soon♥

Need to get up early to take GG for her procedure tomorrow, so I will say good night now.
Love and prayers for all♥

Wanda - you won't ever lose it with friends like us to refresh your memory - I, myself, don't know what I would do with out everyone as my "Reminders"

Mema Jo said...

I sure hope that Linda is maybe all finished down in FL and headed back home.

I am thankful that Kay's getting rid of her pain.

Glo, I pray Dex will have a good day.

Good Misty Afternoon to Everyone!!
Is it early Spring? Light rain and 70°!!
I was out on deck watching a small Hairstreak butterfly. It was sitting on plastic deck chair, not moving at first. I was afraid it got wet or into a web. Eventually it moved around and then took off almost to my head!It then flew into the magnolia tree! Isn't that exciting?? LOL! Got pics to download.

Prayers for GG's treatment.And Good Health to ALL!!

NatureNut said...

Live cam wouldn't open for me & Still is green w/lots of lines. You can see nest~~MT. I thought maybe eagles would be sitting around in wet weather.

glo said...

Well looks like we need some prayers for GG and her Drs. I am glad Lori has found something fun to do for this weekend. Dex ate a pretty good supper. He has slept a lot today but seems much better than yesterday at this time. I hope my vet is right that this is all about the heat "although we are in the house 95% of the time so he doesn't much get over heated. However he probably misses his frequent walks and strolls and has always been a sensitive kind of dog. So maybe he is a little depressed and that is messing with his digestive system."shrug" Anyway he is doing some better today. Time to think about whats for supper. It will end with ding :-). CYA later.

JudyE said...

GLO why don't you take in to the mall or Walmart for a walk if he is missing his walks It just may work

JudyE said...

LORETTA the cam is kaput and may get fixed in Aug according to Steve via Sharon it did work on some nights but not lately and I give up on the still cam its rainbowey most of the time

JudyE said...

I went to the Nook hoping to see the butterfly but not there yet ;&(

Lolly said...

Not nice to talk about rainy days. Parts of the yard were withered today even though we got 2/10 ths of an inch. We need a good soaker!! I know I will loose some of our lawn while gone, but hopefully no plants. We have a guy coming Wed and FRi. Wed he will just water pots. Friday he will mow and water pots. Sprinkler system will come on Tues and Thurs. We might loose some caladiums in pots. We water every other day, but today we decided to skip because of or light rain and plants were lying down. Had to water them. Soooo....I am concerned about going til Wed. Oh, well!

Yes, I am craxy over my lawn and gardens. ☺

Check out the eagle spinners I got at work The last link did not work here goes again
Eagle spinners only 19.97 each they have butterflies and hummingbirds tooo

JudyE said...

I think I may have to adjust the spacing suppose to be 1" and I may have them spread to wide

JudyE said...

LOLLY I wish I could send you some of our rain will go outside and BLOW BLOW BLOW LOL we don't need anymore there is water still standing in the road down the street and the gutters are getting the drainage from the yards

JudyE said...

If I had a garden like you I also would be worried about the rain LOLLY You put a lot of work in it It is beautiful

JudyE said...

I TRY to plant drought resistance plants in my yard I have reclaimed water but haven't turned in on it about 4 years since I have had Jordyn no yard work at all

glo said...

I know I can't take Dex to our Walmsrt. Sign on door says no except seeing eye dogs. I don't know about the mall. Gosh that would be so very good for both of us if i could even stroll him there. I need to get out to to be honest with you.

JudyE said...

ODD OUR store allows all dogs in Comfort dogs included they don't ask at all we are not allowed to say anything Must me because we are home of the elderly maybe

ODD somehow i posted this on MON

Hoda said...

LOLLY you have such a beautiful yard it is normal to be concerned about watering and dryness when you are gone. It is so awesome to see your pictures and to know that it is doing well...I hope the guy waters it enough and that you do not lose any plants...

JudyE said...

that was suppose to be MUST BE not MUST ME LOL

JudyE said...

We have no signs up at all

glo said...

Gosh Maybe Judy. I would love to take him to Walmart. BUT it's not going to happen :-(

Hoda said...

Nice spinners JUDYE but the skies look very threatening...are you going to bring them in?

Hoda said...

I hope it is possible to take DEX to the mall GLO it would be airconditioned and often people have their little dogs on a leash in the malls...why not???

JudyE said...

The storm passed us quickly lots of boom boom pow in the distance

JudyE said...

NO HODA they stay outside Thats what they are for I tried to put on porch but they don't spin on the porch

JudyE said...

GLO google dog friendly malls I just did and there are links out there just put in your city and state with dog friendly malls

JudyE said...

Well I need to head to the shower no maybe TV still rumbling out and they say if you can hear the thunder its still unsafe so will watch TV

magpie said...

It's nice to come to my "Second Home" and find friends on here again :)

nice spinners JudyE and nice to hear your voice on the video also

Glo....I hope some friendly strolling solution will come along for you and Dex....you both deserve it !

Thank you both for visiting Feathers....that Purple Martin House was the Hub of activity!

That was in Norfolk....
xo

Oh I am thing of Jo and her time with little Vincent...nothing quite like some Young'Un Fun !

magpie said...

I caught the tail end of Prairie Home Companion earlier, and kicked myself for not tuning in earlier...

because I just bet that Kay and maybe Seth and Malcom were tuned in too !!

magpie said...

ok now to do some homey chores HERE too...
Lolly...
so sorry about not enough rain...

and I caught Shirley's comment earlier about the drought-stricken corn...can't say I have been tooling around enough this year to get a glimpse of very many farmer's fields....shame on me !

magpie said...

oh my, I see a listing for
"Train Live in Chicago" at 10 o'clock....coincidental because I was JUST thinking of the Southern Delegation a few minutes ago...and missing seeing their Smiling Faces today...
so I think I'll watch this show coming up...

I am going to swoon on Sharon's behalf if she doesn't get to see this show...
I did send her a text message

bbl :)

Judie said...

Good evening to everyone.

Not too much to say tonight except I am so hopeful that doctors will consider GG's quality of life without constant pain. Prayers for GG.

Sorry for all who are so in need of rain and especially the farmers who will suffer such financial loss this year.

Glo, contact a mall and ask about consideration of Dex if you walk with a group that walks in the mall for exercise before the stores open.

We just got a call that a close friend in Ft. Myer, FL has died. Really nice lady. Very sorry.

Judie said...

Busy day tomorrow so headed for the pillows.

The sandperson is packed and ready to begin rounds. The night light is set for 11:30pm. Restful sleep for all.

Hoda said...

Sorry JUDIE for the loss of your friend in Florida. God Rest her soul...RIP

Mema Jo said...

I am ready to get bedded down! Wonderful day - Vincent is a beautiful boy and he is starting to smile and is trying so hard to make sounds. We all heard a few tonight and they were music to our ears. I have had so many wonderful days this week and now again
tomorrow will be another wonderful day, I'm sure.

Mema Jo said...

That sandman travels fast!!!
Good Night and God Bless Everyone
Lots of prayers being said for those in need.
Thinking of Lynn ♥

I ♥ US - HUGS FOR ALL

JudyE said...

what station MARGY I can't find it I typed in Train but nothing come up for tonight here

glo said...

Well given how very long the heat has been around I think maybe I will contact our local Mall Security or whomever and see if they would let us go down there with the stroller in the mornings before the stores open. That is indeed a wonderful idea if they will let me. The Malls I googled in iL are 2 1/2 hours away so won't be doing that and none are listed anywhere for IA. Stay tuned. I will check on that idea next week. We are both needing to get out some now.

JudyE said...

So sorry for the loss of your friend JUDIE

glo said...

Good night all MeMa Jo I was re reading and listening to Lynn's Easter card today. I am missing her too. I am glad it is something else I saved. It was her way of saying "I will see you all for all of eternity> Yes indeed it was that.

glo said...

OOOps one more post I am sorry for the loss of your friend Judie

Wowser, it was good

The sandman tried to come around and it took me much longer to post some cute buggy pictures on the blog! Also, way down below the grackle pics is a set of woodpecker begging juvies, mostly. Don't know if they've been found yet.
Gotta get a snack, so if I don't return, Pleasant Feather Dreams and
Good Health Prayers for ALL ;>)

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Everyone,

Judie, so sorry to hear of the loss of your good friend. Prayers and (((HUGS))) for you and Darth, and for her family.

Absolutely thrilled to hear that GG had NO pain today! Fantastic!

Glo, glad that Dex felt better today. Hope you can find a mall to stroll at with him.

Happy to say that it's a bit cooler here tonight. It's down to 72 right now. Still humid, but livable since it's cooler. I'm about to call it a day. Have said prayers for everyone, and for every creature. Hoping that everyone has a restful night's sleep, with SED. God bless, and goodnight. The porch light is on to greet you, and both security systems are enabled. I love all of you!

I LOVE US!

Lori, thinking about you this morning and praying you are doing better.

Janet said...

Good morning to one and to all.

Finished up school shopping for Olivia today. Do need to get two binders...they were very specific about everything else, but didn't list what size binder??????? So will wait for that and get it the 30th when she has details.

Going out on the boat today ......hoping without any incidents this time! Like, NOT having to get towed it. It appears it was just spark plugs...thankfully. We shall see today.

Everyone have a great day! HUGS amiles, light and love to all!

paula eagleholic said...

Morning all!

Lovelmy here...the sun is out

2 of the 3 osprey chicks have fledged

Put a pic of the last juvie on the nest on FB

Saw the other 4 in the family soaring together overhead

Lolly said...

Good morning! Posted a long comment last night and then lost it. Got a strange message. So my good night was short and sweet.

My low back is really bad. Really concerned about our trip, But not going to cancel. A little concerned about our mornings at the beach. I may go for a while, float, and then head back to the trailer. Can not see sitting on the sand or on my beach chair. We shall see.

I will have to get to the doctor when we return if it continues. Think a little therapy will help.

Not going to church this morning. Taking it really easy.

Mema Jo said...

Good morning - sun isn't shinning up this way yet, Paula! But a lot of things can bring Sunny Feelings in your day!
Lolly, I sure hate to see your trip start with your back the way it is. Take your heating pad and your ice paks.
Paula, the last juvie osprey pic is awesome. You must have gotten a camera zoom!

magpie said...

Okay, sunshine at Paradise, and Sunshine ALWAYS with Lolly's avatar...

Lolly...maybe the salt water will somehow...help....
take your warm and ice things, those little herbal sacks that you can warm up in the microwave...are soooo comforting to me with back pain

((Feel Better Hugs !! ))

magpie said...

Jo:)

we are of the same mind ! I think it is Lynn working through us....what do you think ??

magpie said...

Sunshine is trying its best to work its way through the clouds...

Later on this evening if skies are clear, the Youngster Moon should be

magpie said...

oh shucks !

the Youngster Moon should be working its way out in the West after sunset...:)

magpie said...

time for me to shake a couple of legs here and skeedaddle on out...

going to find something NICE and Restorative to do today...

looking for some laughs, to be honest with you....

magpie said...

Saw one little yellow leaf float down off a tree onto the ground this morning, it reminded me of ...
Autumn...
