Lori said...

Thanks MARGY for the call over!

Thank you, STEVE, for the new thread!

Great Sunday Morning, everyone!

Sandi said...

Thanks Steve for the new thread and thanks Margy for the call over!

Hot, hot, and more hot on the tennis court this morning - played 2 sets but not a third!

Going to watch Federer and Murray - I LOVE Federer but would love to see Murray win since the Olympics are in London.

Later!

CarolAnne said...

Morning again,
Posted some pics of the family waterskiiers. My brother & family used to belong to the Waterboard Warriors ski club (www.waterboardwarriors.org). He won many honors at State tournaments as Best Boat driver. They continue their love of the sport on the weekends at the lake.

Lolly said...

Good morning all...morning, Lori and Margy!!!

Started out cloudy but the sun is shining brightly now. Very jealous of rain and cooler temps. Heading up above 100 as it has done the last week and will for the week to come. Struggling with keeping plants alive.

Church this morning and then I think I might do a little house cleaning. Next Sunday afternoon I am having a baby shower here. So, if I clean and straighten a little each day I will be ready.

Lolly said...

Whoops, good morning
Sandi and Lori you snuck in!! I am getting good at typing caps using only my right shift key. lol

Lolly said...

Good grief...I meant Sandi and C/A!!

magpie said...

Hi More Eagle Pals....

Started out Sunny here, Lolly,and now it is clouding up big-time...not so good for an outside auction...
sigh...

CarolAnne, Enjoy that family time and I will enjoy your pictures when I get back !!

Lori : quickest way to tell you here, is that I have some of the things you gave me....in April...to get to Wanda's Clothes Closet.....very nice things as you know...and I sincerely apologize that I could not get to this sooner...although I did take a few things in a few weeks ago from that treasure trove !!

xo

magpie said...

Sandi: I have a couple of Tennis Fans in my family also !!

Must go now, I am already late, but I must not let "Hurry" and "Indecision" be my pests...that is not original, it is from some daily readings I do...

(( All Day Long Hugs xoxo ))

Lolly said...

I will see you all later! I have got to go get beautiful for church. ☺

Have a great Sunday!

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning friends ♥
Beautiful day on this side of the mountain - lots of sun and a little hot air breeze. C/A I love your water-skiing pictures. All five up at once - a very professional boat driver I'd say.

Lolly Lori Sandi Margy - enjoy your day. Jenny is with me this morning & I really enjoy her visits!

Congrats Margy on another feather.

Happy Birthday Bob - enjoy your day I like going to FB for friends to also wish them a good day.

Judie said...

Okay, coffee and newspaper completed.

Thank you Steve for the fresh thread. Have a lovely day.

♪♫♪HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CRUNCH BOB.♪♫♪ Wishing you a wonderful special day. Stop by to visit and say hi to Mrs. Crunch Bob.

Margy, if you see this, please give Carolyn and Christie a hug from me. Hope the auction will be very successful and I'm sure the family will be happy to have items go to those who will appreciate.

Jo, enjoy your Jenny visit

Lolly, take it easy, please. I'm sure a speck of dust will not offend anyone. Don't need you sick again.

BBL

Lori said...

MARGY, no problem! I hope you liked some of them enough to keep them! ♥

I feel a nap coming on. I better scrape Dalai off the pillows!

Mema Jo said...


New Panda Cub San Diego Zoo


She took a break - he is going to be cute to watch as he grows.

stronghunter said...

Good morning!

Happy birthday, Crunch Bob. Hope today is a great one for you and Ms. Crunch Bob.

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

So very hot here.

I'm watching Murray and Federer.

Sandi said...

HOW ABOUT THAT ANDY MURRAY!!!!!!! I was NOT proud or happy to see Serena win yesterday, even though she's an Americsn. She is the most arrogant tennis player I have ever seen and I rarely even watch her play. But this final made me happy!! =)

Mema Jo said...

Steve, Thanks for the Sunday thread.

IF anyone on campus sees any of the eagle family in the area could you make a comment for us. We miss both of the cams being down - we know the main activity is over.

Mema Jo said...

Lunch time here BBL

Janet said...

Morning all!!!! (or afternoon if you are in eastern time zone!)

CarolAnne: I used to water ski a bit. My mind thinks it would still be fun, but I don't think the days directly thereafter would be fun. That is awesome.....I love the pix. I"ve never done more than just ski by myself....I'd love to teach Livvy when she gets a bit bigger.

We were going to go out on the lake today, but it is stormy and rainy here. Not griping, we do still need more rain, but wish it had waited ....

Not a lot going on. Went to my required TN Law class last night, and another class, Tax deductions for LMTs. It was a good class.

Not a lot else going on. Getting ready for yet another week of work and school!

Have a great day

Janet said...

i posted a couple of pix on my blog. pop over if you want to see! :) Hugs!

Lolly said...

Jack and I used to water ski, too. Jack was really good and he taught me. He bought a ski boat just before I met him. So we water skied a lot while dating, engaged, and early marriage. When Michael came along we took him out a couple of times but decided it was NOT a family boat and we sold it. I was learning how to slalom when we sold it. Do not think I could get up now and certainly am not going to even try!!! I am not a dummy!!!

JudyE said...

Home for a rainy lunch and my road is a river again and to find a fresh thread THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD STEVE WANTS SOME RAIN????

JudyE said...

For all you cat lovers out there this was on Fox news this am that Tampa Bay areas is the #1 area for cats to live according to Cat Fancy magazine They capture all strays and spay and neuter them and clip their ear to show that they have been fixed T&A they call it from what I remember on the news this am Its on page 36 of the magazine here Cat fancy magazine says Tampa is a good place for stray cats

T-Bird said...

Good afternoon my eagle peeps.

JudyE said...

Water ski we would go every weekend to Rough River where my parents had a little land that was fun I taught my x to ski also his first experience was funny He got a enema- he didn't think it was funny- but it was He was squatting and didn't let go of the rope and that is how that happened and then he got hit in the groin not a good experience all around for him I say

I have a video of my water ski that my parents had made I watched it not that long ago

CA loved all the pic and wow big motor to pull 5 skiers huh

Hoda said...

Good afternoon everyone.

All is well here and headed out to groceries and such as our stores are closed tomorrow for Civic Holiday...BC Day.

Glad to see Murray win the Gold for the UK. Tough match. He did well.

Thinking of CHRISTIE and CAROLYN and the estate sale...Love you gals and love your MOMMA.

Another beautiful day here and so I want to spend as much time as possible taking in this awesome weather...from the previous very wet time we had I have friends of mine who had two really large trees fall on their house and major damage occured. They are well insured and no one died yet it is a major event here considering the mud slides we had been having...rather disconcerting to say the least.

Enjoy what ever comes our way when it is good and deal with it when it is tough...the motto for now.

magpie said...

Judie and all:

I will definitely absolutely 100% deliver Momster Hugs to Carolyn and Christie....

Mema Jo said...

Thunderstorm is in my valley!

BBL

magpie said...

Wow what a downpour here at Magpie's Roost...sure made it easier getting the garden watered THAT WAY than hauling my 8 gallon water jugs out one at a time, twice... ☺

Wowser, get this: I have one New England Aster in bloom...it is from the original plants that James gave me last year after a school project; I am beyond elated about this !!

Also, a large but wilted flower had dropped off the Megan Moon Vine... oh boy, now I know what to look for ! It has laced itself around the Asters, so this is going to be some kind of delightful!

xo

magpie said...

Estate sale for my late brother in law's last sister Debbie, seemed to be going well...I got some nice things, had to bypass on a few when the bidding reached my "internal" limit...

Best thing was seeing my brother in law's family there....and they were bidding on and winning bids on many things they wanted...

magpie said...

This was fun, I was making some conversation with a fellow bidder, who....looked quite a lot like Paula's handsome fellow Larry....
just about 30 or so pounds smaller and lighter all the way around....
trying to figure out if he was single, and I think he was....did we exchange names and numbers? Naaaaah...

magpie said...

Also was talking with a fellow who resembled David Crosby of Crosby, Stills and Nash, a group of former times.....but this guy was more handsome and a lot more healthy looking

don't think I just went to the auction to hustle...LOL...just the way things turn out when you move around an interesting crowd of people

magpie said...

I admire and applaud all the water skier folks here....don't think I could do that without getting seriously bum-fuzzled all up

magpie said...

Lots of people that knew and worked with Lynn♥ were at this sale...was good to be in their company....

magpie said...

anything I bought had to be squeezed into my Blazer...and it did, and not it is all squeezed out of there too....

Now I am, believe it or not, trying to iron and starch a dress to wear to the Visitation...right now I look like a wilted drowned critter so I need to iron and starch myself as well...

Janet I liberated what I think was a Brown Recluse Spider this morning.....just swept him off the inside screened porch into the great outdoors

magpie said...

I am looking forward to meeting Carolyn's father...and to meet her Favorite Uncle, who lived with Carolyn's Grandma Bessie...the entire time of his life....
I will tell him in private that Carolyn says he is her favorite uncle... xoxo

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good afternoon eagle budlets.

magpie said...

Good Afternoon Eagle BUDLET Sharon and also to T-Bird !!!

magpie said...

I was trying to post this but computer got all frozen up:

Bessie Riner

magpie said...

Stunning picture of a beautiful Lady....
I can see some Carolyn and Christie in that Smile ☺♥

magpie said...

Well it's time to return to The Big House and get changed up for the Visitation....

Carolyn will have some Bereavement leave in the next few days...which is a nice benefit with our office, am so very glad she will have some time to ...not have to work midnights for a few days...

(( Hugs ))
ttfn xoxox

magpie said...

Jo
Always happy to hear of any and all time you get with your children, grandchildren, and GREAT Grands..... xoxo

See 'Ya 'All later....

That's my imitation Texas Talk ☺

magpie said...

Oh my, The Google Image today is lovely....Some nice GREENS on there ☺♥

okay, 'bye

NatureNut said...

Oh, Boy, new thread!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CRUNCH BOB!

Battened down the hatches here & wanted to check in in case weather does get bad. It's been breezy & sunny all day, but TV says for Mont., PG, and AA counties in MD to watch out until 5:15 P. Also, many of the usual VA counties, too--like Prince Wm., Fauquier, etc. Very dark sky a little N & East of us, but no noises yet.
Hope everyone is having a great Sunday.
BBL, I hope ☺

Hoda said...

Thank you MARGY and hugs to you too for delivering hugs...

magpie said...

Oh yes, indeedy, Hoda....You are Welcome

I am reconfigured now and heading out....
dress is going to get wrinkled from sitting on it in the car but I don't have much options without getting arrested for indecent exposure :)

See you later, Precious Pals....
Got HUGS in my pockets ready to pull out for the Girls....

Hope the Weather Storms do not create havoc.....I am hoping they have passed over this area for the day now

xoxoxoxoxo

Hoda said...

Back from groceries and visit with a friend. Life is good. I can not decide if I am going to go to Movies At The Park tonight...it is a film Called The Way of some chap who lost his son and does the pilgrimage the boy had wanted to do...what he encounters on the way is what the movie is about. Has anyone seen it?
I could stay in and watch one of the following movies which I brought from the Library:
Billy Elliot, Mrs. Harris, I am Sam, and or Black Swan. Does anyone know anything about any of these choices too? I still like Invictus that I watched last night and my South African friends are surprised that Clint Eastwood decided to make a movie of it so many years later. The win happened in 1995 and the movie was made in 2009...Rugby World Cup for South Africa produced and directed by Clint Eastwood...

JudyE said...

HI HONEY I'M HOME AND HOW WAS YOUR DAY LOL
WOW I just checked the rain gauge when I came in the door and no wonder the road was flooded in that one shower we got 4"" of rain not bragging or gloating just stating a fact and we have two depressions out there that will bring more I don't want anymore rain dern it

JudyE said...

Margie have you ever thought about getting a hose attached in side the house to do the watering ?? do you have a water barrel??

JudyE said...

That was so nice that you ran in to friends at the estate sale Magpie

JudyE said...

I bought my long sleeve eagle shirt at work today can't wear now but will have it in the winter I don't have my camera to take a picture of it Angie borrowed it on Sat from me

JudyE said...

WHY oh WHY DO THE POSTAL SYSTEM HAVE TO BE SO SLOW DERN IT ANYWAY

JudyE said...

Thanks for posting that MAGPIE she had a nice size family and what a very beautiful lady she was
Give all my condolence's please and thank you and a hug (((((((HUGS)))))))

Hoda said...

Hi JUDYE congratulations on your new shirt...what are you waiting for through the post?
Your system does so well...

JudyE said...

YEP LOVING THE GOOGLE IMAGE I KEEP FORGETTING TO LOOK THANKS FOR THE REMINDER

JudyE said...

HODA just something I ordered and I am hoping that Patti mails the ABC she had it free delivery on her post on FB but being sort of a relative she may just take down there and I don't want Angie to find out so I just want it mailed I did write her a note with the check I sent out SAT for it

JudyE said...

My cats are going bonkers times like that I grab the camera I think I will run to Angie to get it Need to see if she's home first I guess

Sandi said...

Hoping that the storms to the west don't break apart as they cross the Chesapeake Bay - we sure could use some rain and some relief from the heat!

Margy, sounds like you were really "Workin' the room" at the estate sale!! You go girl! I had to laugh when I read your comment about your dress getting wrinkled on the way to the funeral home and considering alternatives to keep that from happening. Wonder if any police officers have ever stopped a woman driving in her underwear so as not to get her dress wrinkled?? =)

Janet, Lolly, and CarolAnne - I could never water ski - it would be tough to hold the toe rope with one hand while I was holding my nose with the other!

CarolAnne, LOVED the idea of turning the headboard and footboard from an old crib into a bench - made me wish we still had our boys' crib so I could tackle that project!!

Hoda, the only one of the movies you mentioned that I have seen is Billy Elliot, which I liked very much b/c our younger son preferred singing and dancing over playing sports when he was growing up.

Think I'll see if I can find a good movie on TV - have a good evening all!

Janet said...

lol....magpie: good on you. i don't know if i could have turned loose a brown recluse.....they get into shoes/corners, etc.......i know too many folks around here who have been bitten......those worry me worse than the black widow....but hopefully it went on its spidery merry way....

been a quiet day here. i had a two hour nap.....nancy made beans and rice, spanish style for dinner. it was yummy!

hugs to all

Sandi said...

Make that the tow rope, not the toe rope ... then again, I guess someone could hold the rope with his/her toe!! =)

BTW, Paula is having steamed crabs that she caught at Paradise today! YUM!

Later!

JudyE said...

SANDI Water skiing is pretty easy I think anyway JMHO

JudyE said...

Paula are those blue crabs??? Not much of a crab connoisseur

Hoda said...

Thanks SANDI...I might watch Billy Elliot this long weekend...I will make time for it...

magpie said...

Hi Eagle Pals....

What a lovely gathering at the Visitation...the room was alive with Joy and Comfort...

I met Carolyn and Christie's Father, and all the uncles....some cousins,
and Grandma Bessie's sister Daisy....I love these names.....
Daisy called Bessie every single day when it was possible, fixed her hair, pincurled it all up when they could visit together...
Grandma was dressed in the very dress in the obituary picture


xo

magpie said...

Uncle Albert was the last uncle I met, and I sure did whisper to him that he is Carolyn's favorite uncle!

I saw many people I know, mostly Hedgesville folks....many of whom had known Grandma all their life...

I did not get there in time to see Charlie and Jess, darn it....but I did have some nice time with Jenn

magpie said...

Carolyn was hoping that after the Visitation they would be going for dinner, said she was HUNGRY...

The hugs jumped out of the pockets, one pocketful for Carolyn, one pocketful for Christie.....they express their appreciation, they know about Momster Hugs !!!

magpie said...

Sandi...good question, police officers encounter some pretty wild situations and explanations...


JudyE, there is an hose hook-up on the side of the apartment bldg, but part of the machinery is not there probably so vandals or scamps wouldn't just leave it running...so it is more or less locked for the landlords or other maintenance persons to use....

Nice idea, though....

magpie said...

Bruce Springsteen concert is playing in the background as I type....he's very good, and not hard on the eyes either !! Has some nice accompaniements (sp)too....

magpie said...

I need to send a few family emails...

will be back in a little while...

stopped at the store to get some B[acon] and L[ettuce] to go with the T[omatoes] so there could be a late night BLT in my future....

Oh, believe me, I was so proud to tell Carolyn's folks that we work together at 911.....24 years for me, 2 for Carolyn, but I told them she runs circles around me! I just trot some old facts and stories from the past sometimes and that keeps me in good graces with my co-workers :)

ttfn

Hope Everyone is having a good evening,sure sounds like Paula with Steamed Crabs is !!

xo

magpie said...

Carolyn and Christie seem to be doing okay...they were positively glowing, beautiful, and seemed to be comforted by family and friends, and happy to see old friends again...
Christie's Shannon was there also

xo

magpie said...

Did I already say that Bruce Springsteen is not too hard on the eyes ?
:)

Judie said...

Margy, you had a very full day and, given the circumstances, were able to share hugs and memories with family and friends. We thank you for sharing hugs with Christie and Carolyn.

Lolly said...

Oh, Margy, you can not fool us!! You are undoubtedly a STAR at what you do to make money.☺

Sandi, I had to laugh at the mental picture of you holding your nose and holding the "toe" rope with your other hand....or your toes? lol

Judie said...

Ah, BLT is close to my heart. Had the equivalent tonight but toasted in the oven. Not as good as steamed crabs but still yummy!

The sandperson has just unceremoniously thrown a handful of sleepy dust into my eyes and is apparently already headed out the door to visit all of you.

The night light is on for anyone who may need to arise in the dark. Restful sleep for all.

crunch said...

Thanks to all for the birthday wishes. I know I'am not on here much. I have a full time job looking after Doris now. Her mind is realy getting bad. I have to do everything. She can't remember how to do things and get's all mixed up. THANK YOU ALL AGAIN
B

Lolly said...

Watching the Olympics. Just watched the guy run that has the prosthetic legs. After the race another runner wanted to trade names. I got tears in my eyes!

Lolly said...

Well, hi there Crunch Bob! Hope you have had a great day!

crunch said...

Hi Lolly It was good day. We stayed home and things went well.

magpie said...

Hi Crunch Bob!!

It is sooooo good to see you pop on...
you and Doris mean a lot to us, and what a blessing Doris has such a GREAT guy looking out for her

xoxox (( Mr. and Mrs. Hugs ))

magpie said...

for Wanda when she can make a blog stop..

I am so excited about your Milkweed and Caterpillar report! Hope there is another "Wanda-Gene" in the future...
and hoping that this was a good GG-Gene-Wanda day

JudyE said...

The comments about water skiing got me to watching a old video from when I was young I posted some pix on fb of Janet when she was a baby and the skiing Love the video so glad dad put the old 8mm on vcr tape and then I put on DVD when I had a dvd recorder I need to but another one I loved it

stronghunter said...

Mars Landing

Just found this link. Trying to keep up with the Olympics and everything else.

NatureNut said...

Been watching Olympics & sandman might be here soon!
Lolly, I saw the disabled guy race, too. It was great!
Well the storm gave us about ten minutes of puny rain. Duh. Hope no one got worse.
Wanda will have to show us pics of the milkweed leaves and houseguests!!!I haven't hardly seen any monarchs this year. Maybe they migrated North where it isn't so hot---like Canada! ☺
Thoughts & Prayers for Riner Family. So glad you were there, Margy.
Hope Paula had a crabby day!!!
Hope Everyone has Pleasant Feather Dreams and Prayers for Good Health to all ;>)

Mema Jo said...

Well, Margy I think you had the busiest day of all. Really love how you are such a compassionate person to others♥

Good night friends -
Gob Bless and Keep you from all harm

I ♥ US
Missing Lynn ♥ Christie ♥ Carolyn ♥

Lolly said...

Olympics are over for us tonight. Time to hit the sack!

Tomorrow afternoon we are going to Denton. Jack is going to finish up the boys bookcases. Since he separated the wall unit, he had to make two new end panels. Also, taking Dallas Cowboy wallpaper border for Jacobs room. I will help Laurel get it up.

Night all! SED!!!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Water skiing...tried it several times...couldn't ever stay up!

Hoda, I really like the Black Swan movie.

Lolly, hope you are feeling better.

John and Ajay settle on the house tomorrow...I am taking off to watch the kids while they go to settlement.

Rainy ride home, but not bad. Caught fish yesterday, and crabs today!

Happy Birthday Crunch Bob!

Margy, thanks for giving out all those hugs to Carolyn and Christie.

paula eagleholic said...

Oh, here's a pic of the crabs we got today...first time I had put the crab pots out...got 20 crabs in 24 hours...water was pretty rough today, but we got them in OK.

paula eagleholic said...

Oh, my brother Steve saw an eagle at the beach today!

They have been rather scarce, due to all the ospreys.

Also saw some nice herons and pelicans right off shore.

Worked on some trim and such in the half bath today...almost done!

stronghunter said...

Reading back . . . BLT is one of my favorite meals. Hunter also likes them, but he wants the bacon on the side. I like to cram as much bacon as possible into the sandwich.

stronghunter said...

Watching the activities at NASA. I was thinking how different the group of people at the monitors look from the way they looked way back when we first started watching them. I see men with long hair, beards, and women. Used to be men with short hair and no women.

paula eagleholic said...

And now we have lost the still cam?

paula eagleholic said...

Read back on the old thread...saw mention of the White Marlin Tournament...if he's lucky this week, Larry will get to fish in the tournament. Has a friend a couple of houses down who helps out on a boat, and he tries to invite Larry. Think he's been the last 2 years. Same boat he caught the Tuna on. Boat name is "No Worries", but you won't see him listed as a fisherman on the boat.

paula eagleholic said...

Heading to bed...catch ya'll tomorrow night...going to help John and Ajay clean up the house tomorrow...they are moving in on Tuesday.

SED, Love and hugs to all ♥

Hoda said...

Thanks PAULA. I watched it and it was well done.

Goodnight.

PRAYERS♥

Costume Lady said...

BEDTIME...

Yes, MARGIE, it was a good visit with GG, today. When I can get her to eat something which is good for her and she says that "it was good", that is a good day:) She ate nearly a whole can of sardine/mustard sauce and a cup of beef noodle soup. I'm now telling her that certain foods will help her oxygen levels and maybe she can get her injection sooner than later...didn't lie:)

And I too was excited to find 3 caterpillars on my NCTC Milkweed plants...I shouted out loud, YESSS!
I've already given them a second helping of fresh leaves...hungry little critters. One is about half grown and the other two are tiny. Anxious to see if there are anymore out there!

Off I go to dream land...see you all tomorrow. Love and prayers♥

Costume Lady said...

ps
I always feel elated when PAULA gives us reports from her PARADISE, such as catching and grilling fish and crabbing and getting 20 of those precious gems!
I'll bet you all feel that way too. We love for our 'friends' to have a good time and share it with us:)

magpie said...

Ditto that, Wanda !


And Yay on a Good GG day....

magpie said...

And now I guess it's time for me to say good night also....

Exciting time for Paula's John and Ajay..and the wee ones...
oboy, Paula gets to spend Monday WITH the wee ones....

BLT was outta sight! I see more in my future....went ahead and cooked up the pound of bacon...now all I need to do is warm it up...

Prayers for Wellness, and thinking of all those we haven't "seen" for a few...Lynne2, Linda, Kay....and many others....
Out of sight, maybe, but NEVER out of mind

God Bless Us, Every One
xoxo

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Everyone,

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO CRUNCH BOB, AND HOWDY TO MRS. CRUNCH BOB!
Hope your day was really special!

Not much to report from this roost.
It was too hot and muggy to do much of anything! Supposed to be 91 here tomorrow. Wish the humidity would give us a break! We did watch some of the Olympics, and also some programs we had recorded earlier in the week. Emma did a convincing job of looking like a 40-pound bump on a log! So did we!

Margy, glad you were able to pass along Momster hugs to Carolyn & Christie at their Grandma's visitation. Prayers continue for them.

Meant to mention that I fell asleep soon after dinner last evening, and didn't make it here.
Sorry about that! Guess the sandperson ambushed me!

Well, need to call it a day. Have said prayers for everyone, and for every creature, including our furbabies. The porch light is on, and both security systems are enabled. Sleep well, everyone, with SED. Love all of you!
♥♥Lynn♥♥
♥♥Carolyn & Christie and family♥♥
I ♥♥♥ us!!!

stronghunter said...

Good morning!

Got all wound up watching the Olympics and the Mars landing. Have not slept much, so I may be sound asleep by the time you read this.

Lori said...

Good Morning Everyone!!!

Back to work today! It's a mundane Monday.

WANDA, glad you had a good day with GG!

Hope Crunch BOB had a great birthday. Sorry to hear about Doris.

SHIRLEY, You were up late last night, or still up early this morning! :)

I love you all and with you a great day, light and smiles!

Hope to hear from KAY & LINDA today. ♥♥♥

Lori said...

shoulda been WISH you a great day...

Sandi said...

Good muggy Monday morning Lori, Shirley (if you're still awake), and my other eagle friends!

No rain last night, even though it was predicted! Calling for showers today - looks very gray out there. Wonder if tennis will be a wash-out this morning?

Margy, thanks for the report on the viewing for Carolyn and Christy's Grandma.

Paula, welcome home. Exciting day for John and Ajay - enjoy celebrating their new home with them!!

Wanda, glad to hear news about a good day for GG - there really are foods that can improve how your body uses oxygen, like foods high in antioxidants and fatty acids.

Expecting my BFF Deb (been friends since we were 9 years old) and her husband Keith to arrive today to spend a few days - looking forward to spending some in-person time together instead of just emailing back and forth.

Have a great day - stay cool!

Janet said...

morning to one and all

another Monday fast upon us. but i am off tomorrow, so all is well.

had a good weekend. livvy sure had a good weekend. when chris and nancy are here, chris likes to take olivia out and spoil her rotten. she takes her along with her sons and they play play play.....arcades, bowling, you name it. livvy will be very sad to see auntie chris leave!

Morning everyone,

Another Monday, another week ready to fly-by.

Had a great visit with my friend. Weather cooperated beautifully. Had a cookout & a boat ride.

Was able to show them a JUVIE soaring above us as we rode around the lakes.

Ended visit with the rescue of a 2 ft pine snake that was entangled in bird netting (actually deer netting to keep them from eating the hostas).

A hummer was the one that alerted us to the snake, which was entangled right under their feeder. It was chittering & flying in circles & going up and down just under the hanging feeder. It was definitely not acting normal. Bubby went closer to see what it was dive bombing and discovered the tangled snake. Needed a scissor to free it. Hopefully it doesn't return to lunch on hummers.

Have a great day!

Good Morning Eagle Pals...and...

Happy Birthday to Robyn!! Hug that daughter of yours, and get those up close and Birthday Hugs right back, and may this be your Very Best Birthday, Ever xo

magpie said...

Have fun Sandi....sounds like you will !
Great to connect with friends in person....

CarolAnne...glad everything was lined up perfectly for your Sunday, including that Juvie Soaring over...
Bravo on the snake rescue...
interesting, our local paper ran an article Sunday by Scott Shalaway, a WV naturalist....regarding the dangers of those kinds of netting, like the ones folks put out over their plants to prevent deer from eating too much free garden food....
guess it's a hard thing to prevent....

magpie said...

and it's certainly very disappointing to lose crops to animals foraging..

many people don't put gardens out anymore for that reason

I saw a new-to-me butterfly this morning, think this was its BIRTHDAY, as it was fresh and delicate; I think, it was a Diana Fritillary...will have to get a pic up for our butterfly experts here to double check that

Good morning everyone. Back form coffee and dog treats. A photographer friend of mine is coming over and we are going to "play" with some lighting techniques. She is going to also try to get a picture of Dex and I. I so need to get something nice of both of us and that is hard to do alone. I did also want to share a video with all of you. Many of you know the story behind the Channel Island eagles . ALl of you will enjoy the video. Restoring the Bald Eagles to Channel Island

Lolly said...

Good morning! Water pots today, do a little more house cleaning. If I do a little each day, it will not be a big job. Then we are going to Laurel's this afternoon.

Happy Birthday, Robyn! Wishing you a great day!

Out to water before it gets unbearably hot.

glo said...

OOOPS Happy Birthday Robyn Make it a good day everyone.

Linda said...

Well.....Hello there my Friends!!

I will most likely never catch up on what I have missed, but have had you on my mind daily and MISS YOU!!

I did scan this day's blog and saw a couple touching posts from Margy and Lori!

Thanks for missing me and not forgetting me, my Dear Eagle Friends!!

Linda said...

Happy Birthday, Robyn!!!

Wishing you a super special day today and a year filled with new adventures and much happiness!!

Linda said...

Life has just been too busy of late and time has been too darn short!! That kind of sums up my past few weeks in a nutshell.......

Wishing you all happiness and wellness today......

It's always nice to come back here, knowing I am always welcomed, always loved and where I feel like I'm home!!

xoxo

Almost afternoon, but my morning has been pleasant. Mainly watching birds and squirrels and then eating cantaloupe
and banana and toast. I love fresh fruit.

I stopped to read our home page - I usually click on the date I want and don't really look or read it. I did today. I think we are being credited with the fact that we have a large, international community that has developed as a result of this extraordinary pair of eagles. And then under Deb Palmer's pic is that statement that this is the original pair of eagles - you know - Liberty and Belle. I do respect Shep for all the good work he has done for us this year, but I will always miss Shep.

Mema Jo said...

Linda - I am so happy to see you here and to know that it is a busy time for you. You are so right that you can be gone for quite a while but this is HOME
I ♥ US

Now, maybe we can all wish Kay to come see us. ♥

Mema Jo said...

Happy happy Birthday Robyn! This year is going to be the bestest ever for you - that is my wish! LOVE YOU ♥

magpie said...

You know what,Jo...I just took note of the Original Pair notation this morning, have I been missing that all this time? I DID know it WAS but never seemed to have noticed those words....
Good to see you Linda !

I am getting ready for the funeral services for Carolyn and Christie's grandma Bessie...so I have to hustle along...
will share our Momster and Dadster Love with the girls....
ttfn xoxox

Just a reminder -

Good afternoon to everyone.

Paula, congratulations to John and Ajay on the settlement and move in. Very sure they are excited beyond words. Congratulations to you on the fish and crab success.

Shirley, I'm with you. As much bacon inside the sandwich as possible.

Wanda, glad GG had a good day yesterday. Please be sure to take care of yourself as well.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ROBYN! Wishing you a very special day and a very happy year to come.

Welcome home Linda.

Just wanted to stop by. Back to reading. Only three more weeks.

Hi,

Got to get going today. Need to take wallpaper books back. Have not really decided for sure, but maybe I can decide today.

Had to stop at the grocery store on the way to day camp and pick up a Lunchable for Hunter. Now, you would think he would like that.

Nope. He insisted that he did not need lunch. The bag of chips and four Oreo cookies were enough for lunch. And, I was going to be late getting him to camp, but he did not want to go to camp either.

All I can say is that he was in a negative frame of mind this morning. He did take the Lunchable and hurried off to find his friends when we got there.

Sometimes you have to assume that he wants the opposite of what he is saying he wants.

stronghunter said...

He says that he will not eat the Lunchable. We will see about that. You just never know. He may not eat it. I told him that I would just feel bad about sending him off for the day with only a bag of chips and four cookies.

stronghunter said...

We are on a peanut butter restriction again. No nut products of any kind. He had a honey nut bar--I did not even think about that, and he was told not to eat it. Someone is severely allergic. I have to say that would be a big worry for a parent.

stronghunter said...

Paula's Paradise looks to be a wonderful place to be this summer--such good food and Studmuffin too.

stronghunter said...

Synchronized swimming this morning. First saw that in college.

stronghunter said...

I cherish the picture of Lib and Belle, too, Jo and Margy.

Good afternoon eagle peeps.

stronghunter said...

I do have netting over my garden. I don't think there would be any need to have a garden without the net, unless I just wanted to feed the critters.

stronghunter said...

Good afternoon, Thelma. Just about to take off to the wallpaper store. Have been stalling a bit.

Lolly said...

Stayed out too long. Now trying to cool off. Already up to 94, no wonder I was sweating so. Watered and then did some dead heading. Way behind doing that.

Good to see you on here, Linda! You are missed when you are not, but we are an understanding forgiving group.

GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE.

Heading to Denton.

On fb learned that a friend in VA met a big black bear on the golf course. Cool! He played his best game and finished in record time. lol

Later Gators!

stronghunter said...

Ordered my wallpaper. I have not done wallpapering in years, but I think I can handle it, can always tell Will and Kathryn what to do if necessary.

stronghunter said...

The bear or the friend, Lolly?
