Sandi said...

Checking in from school. Thanks Steve for the new thread and CarolAnne for the call over.

Steve, safe trip! Glad you're not traveling to northern Africa or the Middle East area - protests at the US Embassies in 11 countries now! Just sent another email to Brian making sure all is well in Tanzania.

CA, when I read your post about the new thread I thought for a minute that YOU were going to India! I thought - WOW!

State testing my special ed. kids again today and probably every day next week as well. BORING!

Later.

stronghunter said...

Have to take Flash to the vet. He is still having problems. Was lying out in the yard trembling this morning. I got Hunter to help me coax him into the house. He is in pain again.

CarolAnne said...

Sorry Sandi - was trying to conserve on words. I am not going to India. Not even to the grocery store, though the northwoods does look promising!

Poor Flash - pain relief prayers going out.

magpie said...

Shirley, sorry to read about Flash's discomfort...hope everything will be OK soon...



Good Morning from work...
xo

Prayers for Wanda and Gene and the family to find the strength to get through each minute....

xoxo

magpie said...

Go to the Northwoods, CarolAnne....
that definitely has my vote !!!

magpie said...

thanks for the new thread, Steve....
and Happy Traveling wishes...

Great story of the rehab of 'Beauty', Steve. I hope they can do something similar for Buddy too.

Lolly said...

Just a quick good morning. About to take off!

Watch out Canada here we come!! Ready or not!

Like that C/A...mine, mine, mine!☺

Hugs for Wanda this morning!♥

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Everyone,
I'm just beginning to wake up--Ken went to work, and let me sleep in late. Emma has been keeping an eye on things until I get myself in gear. She's on "cricket patrol" right now, as we have had an influx of them recently. She's really good at catching them!

Prayers and more hugs for Wanda, Gene, and family. We have started a prayer chain from this roost, and many more prayer warriors are sending love and prayers.

Shirley, prayers for Flash--that must be so painful! Hope the vet can make him more comfortable. Poor little fellow!

Well, I need to do some damage control in the appearance department. Margy, may I please borrow your magic fairy for a bit?Could sure use her right now! Emma wants some attention, so gotta go.
Will continue mega-prayers, and will check back in later. I LOVE us!

Mema Jo said...

Wonderful story, Steve. Janie at Birds of Prey was our dear departed friend, Deb Palmer! Our friends will never be forgotten! Janie mainly worked with the Ospreys - so thankful for her caring ways. Thanks Steve and Safe Journeys!

It's Red Friday and I've got my red shirt ready to show my patriotism for our troops!

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING ALL...
I loved the video of Beauty getting her prosthetic beak...wondered why they couldn't have tranquilized her a bit so as not to traumatize her so much? Wonderful story and will, most likely, lead to more help with our wildlife friends.

Karla and Brantley's parents are headed to the Funeral Home to make arrangements. Praying that they can feel God's arms around them as they make these very difficult decisions.

I have decided to go on with plans to have Family Friday for those who feel the need to be with family. I need to hug and kiss them all! Will tell GG through a copy of Karla's face book account of Brantley's passing and cause of death. It will be easier that way. She has lost one hearing aid and just barely hear anything now:(

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

((((HUGS)))) to you all! No words!

Lolly said...

Wanda, I do hope family can be together tonight. Hugs and love will help. God be with you and GG when you tell her.

We are on the road and into Canada this morn. All telephone ends then except emergencies.

I love us!!!

CarolAnne said...

Hope GG's life lessons will carry her thru this latest happening. Sometimes they surprise us with their understanding & compassion for things like this. Hugs to GG!

stronghunter said...

At vets with Flash. Tests being done. Not anal gland this time.

Mema Jo said...

Wanda - your gathering is much needed this evening/ Prayers for GG to understand about Brantley. Love to all ♥

Mema Jo said...

Jenny is with me - taking a break away from computer.......
Baking and making dishes for family reunion tomorrow.

I love us ♥

Mema Jo said...

Prayers for FLASH, Shirley

glo said...

Wanda I am glad to read you are going to do your Family Friday. It will be good for all of you to just be together. Hugs around. What a very very difficult week. Prayers that things go well enough with GG. God bless you all.

Flash Dex says he hopes you are feeling better and the Vet will make this all OK for you. He understands those more frequent vet trips these days.

JudyE said...

Mema Jo said...

Wanda - clarify 3pm on what day


Mema Jo said...

SUNDAY 3pm

Wanda is ordering the Plant garden for
us - I'll get back later with any cost.
I mentioned to Wanda about us planting a tree in her yard and she thought that was the sweetest thought - Thanks Carol Anne. Let me know what you all would also like to do as the kids had no insurances. ♥

I wished her happiness tonight as her family gathers.
Sending arrangement out on Momster mail.

CarolAnne said...

In a week where life and death is formost in our thoughts, author Heather Lende wrote an essay about that subject.
She ended it with, "I read that when the twin towers were on fire and the hi-jacked jets were hurtling toward sure crashes, the last words cried into all those cell phones were virtually the same--I love you.

In the beginning, love creates us, and in the end, love is all we know. The priest at my mother’s funeral said death should shake us up. Each death, he said, should encourage us to better live the life we are lucky enough to still have. I know that is true, I just wish there were an easier way to learn it, don’t you?"

Hoda said...

WELCOME TO CANADA LOLLY and JACK ready or not we love having you here...LOL

Safe travels STEVE. I wished I was going to India for a week or so two!!!

Beautiful day here and it is certainly autumn weather.

Hoda said...

I am in with the arrangements to support WANDA and FAMILY...I like the garden idea the tree idea and covering some of the cots that this young family will have...Blessings to all concerned. I am not sure what closure is and I lose my breath when ever we use it here...WANDA'S avatar brought me tears...so restful and so full of love and acceptance and understanding and faith and trust...is that closure? I wipe away the tears.

Mema Jo said...

Information just sent out through Momster's email - Advise me if you don't receive it as I will gladly forward.

Our planter is being ordered by Wanda
At later date CarolAnne would you please speak will Wanda and Gene as to type of tree we could plant in their yard? When you find out (And it should be still good planting season we will have a local look into purchasing it and setting up a planting date.

I would be more then happy to accept any monies to give as a lump sum to the parents. Jo - 7292 Beechtree Lane, Middletown MD 21769 Deadline of Sept 25 ok?

JudyE said...

I also want to participate in the flowers and the tree arrangements that you are making I will send you a check tomorrow Got to go to PO to get stamps my bills took the last one Darn bills LOL Jordyn is asleep fell asleep in 2 min flat I told her she can't hang with the big girls unless she has a power nap she said I love power naps and she keeps repeating I can't hang with the big girls until I get my power nap LOL funny kid I uploaded video of Nicholas the dolphin boy can he jump high and yes we got splashed was fun Jordyn loved it of course I need to try to stir her out of a sleep been a hour and a half otherwise she may not sleep tonight I had seen Steves video before I think I also posted it here on facebook but I enjoyed it again and Miss Jordyn wanted to watch it over and over keep saying What happened hard for a kid to comprehend such hatred out there she keeps say oh oh oh so sweet

Mema Jo said...

Carol Anne, your words are so soothing to my soul. I do believe that Love is the answer to all things.

Hoda - Closure is when there can be Peace in our hearts - it doesn't take away sorrow.


Welcome to CANADA Lolly & Jack
May the Mounties welcome you

Trying to get caught up on here,
busy evening at the 911 center.
Don't think we will slow down tonight.

I am sorry for the short notice, and everyone has so much going on.
The moving of the special item is tomorrow at noon. Not even I can attend, because I don't get off till 4 am and will still be asleep when he has to be there at 11am. I am sorry that this could not be planned out to accomodate us. In box me for questions on this move.

paula eagleholic said...

Safe travels, Steve. Have fun visiting your daughter!

paula eagleholic said...

I think Wanda's family Friday will be very beneficial to the entire family.

Jewels...is Mr Frog being moved tomorrow?

paula eagleholic said...

glo said...

Yeah Mr Frog. It is nice to read some good news for the weekend.

glo said...

Yeah Mr Frog. It is nice to read some good news for the weekend.

Mema Jo said...

The 'cool story' that Steve gave us -
Birds of Prey which brought back memories of Deb Palmer. Well, her sister Dianne just emailed me
"Jo: I would love to see the article that mentioned Janie we stay in
touch ever so often. And I check in to see how you are all doing also'"

Such a nice surprise to hear from her! ♥

Mema Jo said...

IF you want to support the Tree planting for remembrance of Brantley - when you send a check mark it clearly for TREE
I have already received some remarks and checks for tree are in the mail.

Mema Jo said...

MR FROG - you are going home!

I will be stuffing my face and hugging people at noon tomorrow at our Family Reunion <:<o(
But I will soon come and visit you at your new home Mr Frog ♥

Please Don't Drop Him!

NatureNut said...

Good Evening to all the Eagle Buds.
Was able to read thread at work.
Love that Steve wrote about Beauty's progress & that Janie is involved. Jo, that's great Dianne was in touch!
Jo, if we send separate checks for tree & family, what about dish garden for services? 3rd check??to wanda??Don't want to bog you down.

Jewels, how wonderful you're getting Mr. Frog!
Paula, have a great weekend in Wolf Country. Love their TV ads. I wanna live there!☺
Look out Canada!!Lolly & Jack are there!! ♥

I hope Family Friday for the Wrights is somewhat healing.I think everyone needs

magpie said...

Sounds like a busy but wonderfully busy and fun week-end and Monday coming up for Paula.... YAY!

magpie said...

Jewels,
I hope there is SOME let-up in work activities

I see lots of robins today, nice they have not all left yet, also saw a Great Blue Heron flying high overhead awhile ago here in Hedgesville.

magpie said...

Hoda said...

Waiting on a word from LOLLY and JACK as to how far they are in Alberta...

PRAYERS for WANDA and FAMIlY continue.

I am glad Mr. Frog is being moved tomorrow...big transition.

Have a good supper JUDYE

PAULA your weekend sounds terrific.

Mema Jo said...

Loretta - one check would suffice - just send a note on what amounts are for what. You can hold off on the check until I get word from Wanda concerning the funeral flowers and price of a tree - I want to wait until things calm down before tree talk.

I will try to clear my head and get back to you by Monday .

Hoda said...

Friday afternoon, rush hour traffic in Calgary was horrendous! But we are set up and Dad is out looking for a place to buy beer. LOL

We do have wifi, so that will be our communication though I have turned off mail and facebook to my phone. It is on for emergency only!




Hoda said...

I am so excited and so wished I could have seen them while they are here...beautiful country they are visiting. THe weather promises to co-operate even though it is a bit colder than they would be used to for this time of year...
WELCOME TO CANADA LOLLY AND JACK.

Lolly said...

We have arrived, set up, and Jack left to get beer.

We are at Spring Creek Mountain Village in Canmore, Alberta.

Traffic was horrible in Calgary. We hit Friday afternoon rush hour traffic. Groan...

But we are here. Have turned off my facebook and email on my phone, but seem to have good wifi. I will be checking in each morning and each evening. Also, I will be taking pictures with my camera and will download when I can.

Have thought of Wanda and family so much today. Love you , Wanda!

Lolly said...

lol Hoda, you beat me to the blog!

Lolly said...

Jack has poured me some wine, going to enjoy sitting outside with him. Beautiful weather. Do not know the temp as we lost our thermometer and need to by a new one.

I'll be back!

Jewels said...

YEs, it will be good to hae Mr Frog home with me, I only wish it wasn't going to be cold, so I could plant pretty flowering flowers and be able to enjoy some sitting time talking with mom. Lolly , glad you hae made it safely, enjoy that wine. I sure could use a glass after tonight!!

Hoda said...

LOLLY it is 21 degrees celcius in Canmore according to my iPhone which is 70 degrees F.
For the next week it promises to be partly cloudy. Temperatures at night will drop anywhere from 45 degress to 36 degrees. Tomorrow's high is 64 and Sunday is 63 degrees F.

I was so excited and did not know how long it was going to be before you posted...sorry I will wait for you to post unless you tell me to post...

HUGS to the both of you...

What beer is Jack drinking?

Costume Lady said...

Family Friday was a success...everyone came, including Jillian and Aaron. They both just happened to have the day off. We hugged and cried and hugged and cried and when everyone left there was mostly laughter, no tears.
I gave GG Karla's letter and she seemed to understand every word about what had happened to Brantley. She cried for a little while, then gained her composure and told Karla and Donny how sorry she was, knowing how close they were with the baby. I held her as she sobbed and that seemed to be a comfort to her. After a trip to the ladies room, she came back and ate her supper. I fixed some Chicken Corn Chowder and we bought some subs. It felt so good to have the family all together. I think Robbie and Rachael have moved back into their house. God Bless this family~

Mema Jo said...

You are Blessed, Wanda. I am so happy for your family gathering's events. What a bonding you have had!

Hoda said...

GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY WANDA

Thank you for your post and I am glad it was a good gathering. LOVE YOU ALL VERY MUCH...

Hoda said...

Mema Jo said...

Jewels - we can get the bulbs in the

Evening all. Am at my mom's. Posting from my kindle - tried posting twice via my phone and it looked like the posts were submitted but I don.'t see them. Oh well.

Wanda, glad you were able to laugh and cry with your family. I'm sure everyone needed to see and touch one another. Prayers continue.

Jewels, it made me smile to read that Mr. Frog will be moving to your house tomorrow!

Look at the time!! Heading to bed - goodnight my eagle friends!

CarolAnne said...

Didn't make it to India with Steve, but did make it north.

In the 2 hours we've been here we have had 4 different bucks & a family of raccoons come visiting.

How do they all know we've arrived & put out fresh food????

Wishing everyone a peaceful night and a heart full of happy thoughts & memories.

Night all!

glo said...

Wanda I am glad the time with family was good for everyone. It sounds like GG accepted and understood the news pretty well too. You all remain covered in prayer. Your avatar is a heart tugger indeed. BUT I am so glad you had those moments with Brantley and someone took a picture I am glad that you have it and I am glad that you shared it too ((((Wanda))))

Costume Lady said...

Heading over to face-book to see if any of my family is schmoozing
with one another.

Good Night, friends,,,prayers and love for you all♥

Mema Jo said...

Hope you are feeling better in the morning Judy - Rest well and heal ♥

Hoda said...

Healing prayers to you JUDYE.

WANDA God Bless your family and their beauty and their strength...God keep you all and guide you all...Good night.

Mema Jo said...

This evening has creeped up on me and I realize it is time to hit the pillows. I have just been enjoying a moment of silence - thanking God for my life and for all of my friends. I pray I can help my friends at all times even if so far away. Words truly spoken with compassion can do that. I Love Us ! ♥

Mema Jo said...

Good night to all my friends
God Bless you and keep you safe from all harm.

Sleep well SED as Lolly would say!

Love you Lynn ♥ You're frog is on the move! ♥

Hoda said...

Love you JO...Good night and SED

Lolly said...

Dinner is over and we are enjoying the last of the wine.

Wanda, thanks for the report of your family evening together. Reminded Jack and myself of a fairly similar occasion. Ashley had a baby, went through the delivery, knowing all was not well. We had a service, after the cremation, and afterwards many family and friends gathered at their house. Tears and laughter are necessary! That was my only granddaughter. They named her Samantha, Sam.

Lolly said...

night all! SED!!!!!

Hoda said...

STEVE posted on FB that he is in Paris...

Ms Bookworm said...

Hello, Everyone,
I am so glad that Wanda & Gene's family night went well. I am sure that everyone needed the fellowship of family, and a lot of hugs. Prayers for the whole family continue.

It has not been a good week at all.
I hate bearing more bad news, but
I am really sorry to report that my Sis-in-law Marsh took Katie the bulldog to the vet again today because she was not doing well at all, and she had to have her put down. The vet said she had autoimmune disease, and would only get worse, not better. Marsh said she looked like a burn unit case, covered with hot spots, with several abcessed hot spots weeping pus. She was absolutely miserable, and this after 2 weeks of antibiotics. The vet said it would be a case of spending huge amounts of money to try to save her, only to have her relapse. It was the kindest, most loving thing to do to help her over the Rainbow Bridge. Poor Marsh is heartbroken, so please say some prayers for her.
I'm pretty upset, too. Poor little Katie was such a sweetheart. When I'd take care of her and Charlee, and she didn't want to eat, she would rather have you pet her than feed herself. She was a real people dog. I am certainly going to miss her!

September 12th was our youngest daughter, Heather Nicole's, 35th Birthday, although she celebrated it in Heaven. We can hardly believe she's been gone 20 years.
That particular date is very important to our family. It is Ken's Dad's Birthday, Ken's Dad & Mom's wedding anniversary, Heather Nicole's Birthday, Marsh & Joe's wedding anniversary, and our nephew Sean's little boy Ian's Birthday. Now it's the day Brantley went to heaven, too.

JudyE, saying some prayers for healing for you. Hope a good night's sleep helps, and you feel better tomorrow.

I am going to go take a shower. I need one badly--it was 109 here today. Thank GOD the humidity was low! I'm awfully sticky hot, though.

Have said prayers for everyone--so many, for so many reasons. Prayers for all creatures, and for all our furbabies, too, especially Flash. Hope he's feeling better. Wanda & Gene, GG, and their whole family are in my heart and in my prayers, too. The porch light is on, and both security systems are enabled.
Hope everyone has a deep, restorative sleep tonight, with SED. God bless, and goodnight. I love all of you!
♥♥Lynn, miss you terribly!♥♥
♥♥Carolyn & Christie♥♥
I ♥ us!!!

Ms Bookworm said...

...Pulling a Margy here.
Lolly, glad that you and Jack made it to your destination OK. Enjoy!

Forgot to mention that tomorrow is Miss Emma's 2nd Birthday! We are going to spoil her rotten! (Can't believe she's 2 already.)

Hoda said...

RIP KATIE...I am sorry ANDY she went to the Rainbow Bridge...

September 12...thoughts and prayers to all.

Jewels said...

awww poor katie dog, I will keep Marsh in thoughts and prayers as well.

Got the offer on the house, they offered 80,000.00 Our realtor said that is a insult. Heck I not need her to tell me that!!
They even came back to the house again today well the 14th to look at it again for the 3rd time!! They are from Maryland.
CHristie said out of smartness she would counter offer 126,999.00. but I think t hey decided on 118,000.00 the costs for us is already up to like 10,000.00 for all the dang inspections and such plus having sewer pumped. Absolutely ridiculous!!

Hoda said...

Tomorrow I go to Dragon Boating and then to the Cottonwood Market with the Grans...there is also a story telling festival that I would like to hear...it runs Saturday and Sunday...Sunday Morning we have the Terry Fox Run/Walk/Cycle event...so this weekend my check in time is the afternoon...


Goodnight

Prayers♥

Hoda said...

WOW CAROLYN I am glad you are not taking this offer...The right buyer will come...

Jewels said...

as much as I would like to see the house sell, just cause its going to be hard to maintain the home in the winter, I would not take less than what its worth. I would really like to laugh in their faces!!

Its been a heck of a shift. Still at almost 3 am we have 6 calls on the screeen!! We have not had mucch downtime tonight at all.
I am whooped!!!!

magpie said...

Good Morning Eagle Pals...
Beautiful and clear, wonderful West Virginia Morning here...hope it is the same where YOU are...

Precious and moving report from Wanda....it is good to read of togetherness and bonding

So very sorry for Andrea's sister in law's pup Katie...and Happy 2nd Birthday for Emma !!

Happy to read that Lolly and Jack are getting settled into their Alberta home away from home

xoxox

magpie said...

did see ISS sail across the sky this morning, high and bright...I waved but I don't think the astronauts saw me...

magpie said...

time for me to get ready and then leave for work :(
it's going to be way too nice to be cooped up inside, but dough-making is important...

I can get some forget-me-not plans to Jewels for Spring Sprouting....
I owe some to Sharon also, but not sure how to send a plant to Bluefield, will finally get some of those seeds sent out, though...


Best Wishes for a Good, Better, BEST Day....

God Bless Us, Every One

Sandi said...

Good frog moving morning my eagle friends. It's a beautiful cool clear day here in Elkridge.

Andy happy birthday to Miss Emma. Sorry to hear that Katie had to be put down but it sounds like your sister-in-law made the right decision.

Lolly now the fun begins - look out Canada!!

Hope Steve's trip/visit with his daughter is safe. Thought of him last night when the news reported that India is one of the 21 countries with protesters making trouble at the US Embassies. I wouldn't want to be an American traveling to a country with a Muslim population right now.

Mom has a very long to do list for everyone for this weekend - hoping we can put a big dent in it. I know I'll need a nap - Bella woke up at 6am as usual even though we went to bed at midnight!

Have a good day all. - I know Jewels will be smiling in a few hours! =)

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

Lori said...

Good morning MARGY - happy Friday to you - your weekend awaits!

ANDY, so sorry to hear about Katie the bulldog. I always enjoyed your stories when you watched them.

WANDA, how wonderful that you could all get together for Family Friday. What a beautiful family you have. God Bless all of you, especially at this difficult time.

JO, thanks for coordinating all the donation items - you are amazing! Have a great family reunion.

PAULA, is this your weekend at the Lodge? Have a great, great time!

JUDYE, hope you are feeling much better this morning!

Not much going on here, except weekend work for the website, though there's lots of things I would love to get done! God please give me motivation! :)

LOLLY, I'm so excited you're in Canada and at least in the same country as our dear HODA!

HODA, you have a busy weekend! Have fun and we'll wait until the afternoon for your reports. ♥

Lori said...

Good Morning THELMA & Buddy! How is everything at your house?

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds

JudyE said...

ANDY so sorry for Katie having to be put down

And that is a slap in the face the offer on the house JEWEL Hold out till more is offered

WANDA so glad the family got together and GG took it well

Well I may be getting a cold I felt a little raspy when I woke up but ok now ODD

Lori said...

JEWELS - wanted to say how happy I am you get the FROG today!!! YAY!

Lori said...

JUDYE, maybe you just needed some rest. Glad you're feeling better!

T-Bird said...

Lori-things are better in my household. Sharon's leg is much better although she is still battling that cold. Mattie got it too and had to spend 2 days out of school. How about your household. Also still struggling with a heavy heart for Wanda and her family

Lori said...

All is well here, Thelma, except Dalai, the bulldog has a cold, well, bronchitis. She's on antibiotics. Glad you're doing well!!!

Janet said...

Good morning all.

Sometimes there are just no words: WANDA, still holding you close in my heart and thoughts....blessings to you and your family. (((HUGS)))

ANDIE: sorry about the KATIE. so hard to let go. (((HUGS)))

Mema Jo said...

Morning Eagle Friends - cool and crisp again today with the sun.
Prayers for Marsh - she did right by Katie even if it is so sad to have to make that decision.

Sounds like a busy day for most - Take time to be thankful for all you do have.

I am starting to 'move' and get the picnic things packed up - from soft drinks to cakes! Glad the park is only a short distance away.

I will be thinking of you all and wishing you good family ties as I have

I love us ♥

magpie said...

when I grow up, in addition to the many other things I have wished for here:

I WANT TO BE A LENNOX !!!!

xo Have fun, Jo

CarolAnne said...

I second that Magpie!!

For those who voted for my going north its been well worth it.

Multiple deer & a raccoon family in the yard last night. This morning, walking the dogs heard turkeys in the woods, there was a mist on the lake, and a loon diving for food. Tomorrow I shall bring the camera on the walk.

Wishing everyone a great day.

magpie said...

Good to see you CarolAnne....
I am imagining your walk....all the sounds...and the pitter patter of little doggy paws


magpie said...

I could see this on my concrete porch:
while I was away from the apartment, it appears that probably a neighborhood kid put out a bowl of milk, that got spilled on the concrete. There are numeous
white almost irridescent kitten paw prints on the porch...is quite cute and wistful

magpie said...

and of course they are all gone now, the Momcast and five kittens....somewhere in the neighborhood I guess, but maybe that bowl of milk was the boost they needed for their departure

magpie said...

Hoping that all our Bluefield Buddies will be hale and hearty and healthy very quickly

magpie said...

back to the five other computers now, here at work

ttfn xcoxox

glo said...

Good late morning all. I have really accomplished some things this morning but they aren't the kinds of things anyone would see except for me. Some notes written. Packages ready to mail. Downloaded some photos so camera is good to go again and resisted the urge to get them ready to post on FB or send wherever. Will do that later today maybe LOL. Gorgeous early Fall kind of weather here. Dex and I are off to the Post Office. HAGD everyone. Sorry to read another furbaby crossed the bridge. Surely does sound like what needed to happen. Dex had a Vet appt yesterday too. Overall it actually went very well and I slept very good last night. :-)

magpie said...

well big duh double duh
just realized the STILL cam is stuck on 07:35:33 hours....guess no views today for awhile
:(

Here is an update on Beauty, from the Birds of Prey Northwest Facebook page

Birds of Prey Northwest Will paraphrase our July 27 update: Beauty is doing very well. Her upper beak has slowly regenerated some growth, which pushed the specially fitted prosthetic off. The GREAT news in this is that for the first time, the beak growth allows her to feed herself. We cut stips of salmon (one of her favorites), lay them out, and she is able to scoop them up and eat on her own. We are in a wait and see pattern before determining any kind of new prosthesis. She lives in a large aviary where she moves about, perches on large tree limbs, and looks out over a lake and forested mountains. She remains a beautiful, very special bald eagle, and a reminder that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. THANKS FOR ASKING ABOUT HER!

Good Morning Eagle Buds.
Want to wish Jo and clan a super reunion!
So glad Wanda's Family Friday was a Blessed get together and GG accepted the news. Prayers and
(((HUGS))) for all of you. ♥
Lolly, sounds like you're enjoying North of the border & Hoda can give the weather report!
So sorry about another Rainbow Bridge. Prayers for our furbabies, too.
Fubby has gone to a car show & I didn't make it, so hope to get some pics when he returns. In fact he may have taken the camera!!!!!
Good healing for Sharon and everyone have a peaceful weekend.☺

Lolly said...

Good morning! Slept good and we slept a little later. We sleep without the heat on so it is great to bundle under blankets.

Jubby is now cooking breakfast.
Did cereal all the way up but this morning bacon, eggs, and biscuits!! Woo woo!

No plans for today, but after breakfast we will venture out.

Andy, so sorry about Katie.

Jewels, missed your post about the offer on the house. Apparently it was low. Stick to your guns!!

magpie said...

Great Beauty Update, Paula, thanks!
Hi Lolly, Loretta and Glo...
and more eagle pals before and after...xoxox

Oh it is to fantatically beautiful outside !!!

magpie said...

wonder why the still cam went kaput for today....

Lolly said...

Breakfast is over, Jubby is out chatting with a neighbor. Wish you could see my view. I will take a picture and load it up later.

I am off! Have a great day!

glo said...

Have a great time Lolly. I am sure Canada is beautiful I will be watching for your pictures.

magpie said...

Hi Glo.
I hope you had fun this morning,
Dex also

JudyE said...

Home for lunch and thanks for the update on Beauty Paula I went over and liked the page and I noticed someone suggested a FB Page for her and I guess they may be thinking about it

JudyE said...

One of the gals at worked called to make a appt for her daughter for a mermaid shoot She has up the price to 150.00 WOW a little steep of course she said no that was a little high to pay for one 8x10 and the sitting I noticed on her facebook page she says she has no photo shoot for this weeknd that is when she has the mermaild shoots all at once Maybe she will figure it out you can't all of a sudden go from 63 to 150. and expect people to book Ok I will get off my band wagon LOL

magpie said...

hey JudyE
The still cam is stuck at 0735.
so don't get your hopes up for a glimpse of the Royal Eagles
:(

JudyE said...

PAULA I went over on the page that Steve posted and posted what you did about beauty in case anyone else wants to know Thanks for the info Neat that her beak started growing back and that she lost the one they made and great that she can feed herself I hope they do get her a facebook page Ok back to work for me YUK

JudyE said...

I saw that too when you posted it early NOT FAIR no eagle fix even if it fuzzy ;o( ok out the door I go

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Good afternoon friends! I am out on the water watching 2 osprey soaring! Breathtaking beauty! Wish y'all were here!

DanaMo said...

Being really lazy this afternoon. I hope I find some energy for tomorrow when I have to get some work done. In the meantime though...I'm just hanging out.

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Have thought of little else but Wanda and Gene and their family today!

Kay said...

Have caught up with this batch of blogging at least. Prayer list updated.

Special thoughts are with WANDA, GENE, GG and the entire family. So glad you had Friday night together and am praying for you as precious little Brantley is laid to rest tomorrow.

Still waiting for insurance approval for the MRI--will start bugging the doc's scheduler Monday. Couldn't make it without the pain killers ! Fortunately Julie is feeling stronger, even doing a little shopping for me today. Thank you Momster's for your love and prayers ! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Mine are certainly with each of you !

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Back at the camper. Such a nice peaceful afternoon on the water. Lots of osprey making lots of noise. I loved the story about Beauty, that was awesome. Read the blog and it is nice to know what is going on with some of my favorite folks. I just don't get on much when I am working, it sucks me in and I get so far behind! But I love y'all and am always thinking of you.

Dana, there is alot to be said for just hanging out. I have chicken on the grill and we are listening to the WVU game and doing very little. I have walked all I am going to today (I think!). Tom is going fishing later and I might get another mile in but if I don't, it will be okay. We went to the Pulaski County Flea Market today and it was huge.

Mema Jo said...

Good evening to all of you! My day was just what you all expected - Awesome!

I sure was able to get my fill of little Vincent - the kids came to the house after the picnic for 2 hours. I will post pics on FB and send them th those of you not over there.

I am exhausted and My Feetsies are going up as I ate so much good good food that I really don't need any dinner.

BBILW I love us ♥

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

You got to see this video of a man and his cat His cat had a ear infection and after giving him the drop for almost two weeks the cat would not come to him so this is what he did to make it up to him I love it
The cardboaard palace for a cat

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Mema Jo, so glad you had a great day (we knew you would!). I am gonna go get in the shower and then go sit by the campfire a while. Have a good evening everyone. I love us!!! <3 <3 <3

DanaMo said...

Went to Mass this evening, now I get to "sleep in" tomorrow. Not that I ever sleep very late.
Pizza is ordered and should arrive any minute now.
I need to do some lesson planning, but that can wait until tomorrow.
Monte is at the Antietam re-enactment this weekend with the Boy Scouts. It sounds like it's been a great event.

Hi Kay!! Sorry I haven't emailed in a while. Maybe tomorrow. ♥

magpie said...

The view looks different,JudyE, so it must have gotten restarted somehow.

Jo, Great Report...as long as you can get those feetsies up without any "outside" help you are doing good !!
Sissy, Great! If you grill hot dogs remember I like mine kinda charcoaly on the outside...
JudyE sorry if the punies are going around down your way...


magpie said...

A/C here still not quite right, but what perfect timing, it's plenty cool outside at night so I'll just import some of that through some open windows...
Expecting an after midnight arrival of the youngest of the nieces and nephews who calls Hedgesville WV HOME...just found out, he's airborne right now from Californy :)

magpie said...

well the time is way off on the Still Cam but not so way off as it was before

have a bed to make and some clutter to tidy up here...

Thinking of Wanda Family, you know...all of those wonderful people, and praying for peaceful and joyful moments amidst the sorrow

I really am going to try to be kinda skimpy on the blog in case we have this FRIDAY THREAD all week while Steve travels

xoxox (( Saturday Evening Hugs ))
PS Kay, thanks for checking in, let's think POSITIVE, AND MORE POSITIVE FOR YOU AND JULIE....

Hoda said...

It was a wonderful day here too JO. I am glad youi had a terrific day too.

Good afternoon/good evening Friends.

I look forward to LOLLY'S and JACK'S pictures too. Canmore where they are is a lovely spot and very close to Banff and I am sure they could day trips and hikes all around this area...it is outside of the National Park Boundary but Banff is within reach...I want to know what four legged creatures they have seen today.

I think this is the very last weekend I could do without sox...my feetsies got cold in the market today...we made 600$ selling baked goods and people were very supportive and friendly with their visiting...

The water was calm on the lake and what a wonderful early morning paddle it was. Very vry pleased with it all.

I will go to the story telling festival tomorrow instead of today...it will be in Nelson instead of 1/2 an hour out of Nelson...should be lots of fun...

Hoda said...

Prayers for WANDA and FAMILY as the service is tomorrow and may God Bless you all.

Lolly said...

Jack is grilling hamburgers. Have been sitting out and reading, then we went for a short walk. Spent most of the day taking it easy, getting reaquainted with the area. Also, checked on wildlife viewing areas as well as hikes.

Tomorrow going to take a loop drive looking for wildlife.

Margy, seeing Magpies all over the area. Also, at this rv park there are rabbits all over the place. Love it! We came across one other rv park in the south east that had many rabbits.

I also learned where to look for an eagle. He has a favorite roosting spot. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Lolly said...

Howdy Hoda! We certainly are having beautiful weather.

Lolly said...

Cheese is on...will be back later!

magpie said...

Having my fingers AND my toes crossed for you, Lolly...
yay on the magpies, I have yet to see a real one, but it is on my bucket list...


BRAVO on the fundraising loot, Hoda...

I spoke for a little while with Wanda earlier today...it was lovely to share some talk time.
She and Gene were going to spend some time with GG in the afternoon...

May we offer some moments of silence and prayer Sunday afternoon, with the funeral services for Brantley at 3 pm, Eastern Time... and the Visitation one hour prior to that...
Gaze upon the heavens maybe, feel the warmth of the day upon you...
and send your lovins' their way....

There is definitely a place on Sunday afternoon for prayer for Brantley's family. God Bless them all. SED all.

Hoda said...

WELLL!!!

Clearly I can not wear sox as LOLLY asked to keep fingers and toes crossed for her to see a Canadian Eagle...way to go LOLLY I hope you see it...
I can not wait to see your pictures...
Glad you had a good day.

Hoda said...

GREAT IDEA MARGIE! Join in prayers for Brantley tomorrow afternoon 3:00 PM EST and an hour before that for the visitation...GOD BLESS WANDA'S FAMILY

Mema Jo said...

Very loving idea and I will certainly unite with all of you in prayer for Brantley and his family. Distance will prevent me from attending but in my heart I will be there. ♥

Lolly said...

I think in all of our hearts we will be with our Wanda and her family tomorrow.

Have posted pictures on fb. Will start an album here of a few of the pictures.

paula eagleholic said...

Yes, will be thinking of Wanda and Gene and family tomorrow.

Had a nice dinner out with Michael and Larry (Stud). Came back and have been chatting and doing some small chores and trying to get some clothes together for the next couple of days.

Heading out around 9am or so, we can get into the park at 1pm, and we are about 4 hours away, so we should be right on time. John is leaving earlier, but Michael and I are sleeping in just a tad.

Just about done, so going to try and get to sleep at a reasonable hour!

SED, love and Hugs for all♥

Catch up with ya later!

Mema Jo said...

Calling it a night
Enjoy your trip Paula

Lolly Canada looks surreal Enjoy

Prayers for all

Night ♥

I LOVE US ♥

Miss you Lynn! Hope your Mr Frog got into his new spot at Carolyn's ♥

stronghunter said...

Stopping in to say good night. I am hoping the contractor will get started on the repairs very soon.

Got a check for the hotel room from the insurance company, then got an e-mail that they had MAILED the check, not sent it by FedEx, as originally planned. So it looks like they may have sent two checks, because I got it via FedEx.

Guess I will wait until Monday and find out what happened. Do not want to try to cash a check and find out they stopped payment on it.

Rest well, my friends. SED.

Hoda said...

Good night

PRAYERS♥

Costume Lady said...

Coming in the door to say Good Night...but first:
Capt. Gene and I have been able to pull ourselves together, not many tears today...only when we see a photograph; his smile was so sweet:)
GG was very 'accepting' of everything, today, saying that 'it is probably all for the best, because he might have spent a lot of years in pain with his defect'. What she doesn't know is that if he had been x rayed and the problem found, they could have repaired his problem:`( Too little too late. Anyway, she wanted to go to the service tomorrow, but her breathlessness scares and embarrases her, so she wants to stay home...won't even consider going in the motor home:( I'm going to take her an extra-special dinner and a stack of some new gardening magazines. Hope that keeps her busy til we get back

I worry so about Rachael and Robbie. Karla tells me the Rachael has been clinging to Brantley's Blankie and Robbie breaks down at the mention of his name...so young to have such sadness!

Good Night dear friends, sleep well and feel my love and prayers for you all♥

DanaMo said...

Oh those poor kids. I cannot even begin to imagine what a difficult time they are going through and will continue to go through. It will never be easy for them. Keeping them in my prayers.

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds
Will be thinking of you and your family today WANDA
WANDA do you all have a hospice up there Maybe if Rachael and Robbie could go for a while it may helps and I think the blanket is part of a normal thing wanting to hold on to something of his Here grief counseling is free for family members

Sandi said...

Good Sunday morning my eagle friends.

Will be thinking of and praying for Wands and Gene, Karla and Donny, and Rachel and Robbie on this very sad day.

Kay prayers continue for you that you get some answers soon and relief from your current pain.

Paula have a fun trip to Great Wolf!!!

Productive day here at Mom's. Lisa and I did some serious spending of Mom's $$$ while Denny and Mitch worked on Mom's to-do list. Bought 2 nice area rugs for living and dining rooms, blinds for the French doors, new lamp shades, wall shelves and a TV stand for the computer room, sheers for computer room windows. The condo is looking great!

Heading over to FB to check out Lolly's pica. Have a great day all.

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Good morning everyone! Thinking of Wanda and Gene and the family today. This will be one of the hardest days they have ever had to go through. There is just nothing to prepare you for this kind of tragedy. They were first on my mind when I opened my eyes this morning.

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

It is overcast here at the camper this morning and that seems fitting, doesn't it? I am going to eat my breakfast and go for my walk. That helps center me. That is time when me and God have a talk.

Hope Lolly and Jack are enjoying their travels. They sure do get around!

Love and hugs all around!!!

Lolly said...

Good morning! Very early here and we are off on our adventures. I tried to start a new blog for pictures, but no luck. Wifi got busy and I could not even get back on. Will try again later.

Taking a loop drive, on gravel road today where we have a good chance to see wildlife. 5 moose were spotted yesterday!

Packing a lunch and we are off.

Wanda and Gene...thinking of you today. GG knows what is best for her, good that she is staying home. She is wise! God be with all of you today, hold you close and give you comfort.

glo said...

Sunday morning. For many of us we do indeed pause to remember there is eternal life provided by our Creator. It is hard though when our loved ones go there and leave us here. I believe eternity is a beautiful place and many we love are there waiting for us. Brantley is in a better place beyond our imagination, but for his family today is too difficult for words in many ways. Surrounded by the prayers of those who love them and comfort from above is my prayer for today and especially this afternoon as visitation and services are carried out in memory of this sweet baby who yes left here way too soon. (((((Brantley's Family)))))

CarolAnne said...

Go, so very well said.

Lori said...

Good morning eaglel family!!!

Thinking of Wanda & Gene, Karla & Donny, & Rachel and Robbie as they go through this sad day. Prayers for the entire family.

JUDYE, how are you feeling this morning? Hoping for no chills at work today!

LOLLY, have a great day trip on your wildlife loop! Can't wait for pictures!

HODA, sorry about your cold feet yesterday - yep, it's socks time!

KAY, praying for you and Julie. Glad she was able to be of some help to you when you're both so under the weather. I love you!

BEV/SISSY - always so nice to see you on here in the morning. Enjoy your walk!

Lori said...

Going to do a little shopping today. Need to get some winter shoes...seems like all I have are sandals...though socks and sandals are comfy to me, they just don't look good at work! :)

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

T-Bird said...

(((HUGS)))
Prayers and thoughts as usual!!

T-Bird said...

Are we ready for some football?

T-Bird said...

Go SKINS!!

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Prayers for Wanda, Gene, and the whole family. GG's response sounds like her way of coping with Brantley's death. I can understand it.

Nice day here. Just hope we don't get anymore praying mantises coming in through the holes in our walls. Or squirrels, for that matter. No squirrels yet, but there are holes big enough, covered only by the tarp.

Janet said...

SPLIT COMING SOON..........And its Sunday yet again. I have a cat making biscuits on my midsection. A bit hard to type...but she is at least letting me see the screen!!! Such affection! lol.

Thinking of Wanda and her crew today. Will join in sending healing thoughts @ 3 p.m. e.s.t. Count me in. (((((HUGS TO WANDA AND FAMILY)))))) blessings and love to see you through this difficult time...

Yesterday was busy, but we muddled through. Less tired today. Slept late (for me). All furbabies have had breakfast/meds and I have had coffee. Almost time to start the day.

A more quiet week ahead. After last week, am ready for some "down" time. THe weeks where I have ALL of my private clients keeps me going like a mad woman.

Can certainly tell fall is coming quickly. Days are much shorter now, and I noticed a few leave thinking about changing color. We have rain forecast for the next few days; cooler temps ahead. Upper 60's low 70's for highs. :) Yeah. I think I might plant that mimosa tree this week. It is nearly 4 ft tall now, time to get it in the ground.

I've been babying this tree for a year now. We had a lovely one when we moved here 7 years ago, and I decided to weed n feed the yard; and killed the tree. OOPS> So then I found two baby mimosa trees, babied them, planted them in the back yard, surrounded by a small fence to protect them and the electric company came through to replace a pole in the back yard and RAN THEM OVER. :{ Talk about frustrating? So this one, maybe, just maybe will make it? It is going in the front yard. I'm thinking with the cooler temps and rain forecast it might be a good time to plant it.

Time to get busy I suppose. Bowling tonight; yoga tomorrow night!!!!! :) I hope everyone has a good day. Hugs to all. .......

CarolAnne said...

Glorious sunshiny day here.

Hoping Wanda & family find peace today that sustains them. GG has the right idea, aceeptance with no "if onlys"or "what ifs".

Song on the radio right now: If I Could Have a Beer With Jesus. It asks all the questions we'd ask, if we had the chance.

Weekend pics on blog.
Wishing everyone a day full of wonder and peaceful times.

T-Bird said...

Janet, I love it when they (cats) do that. It appears to make them so comfortable. I was wondering the other day why they do that. Do you know?

Mema Jo said...

Morning to all my friends ♥ Thinking of Wanda & Gene and of Rachael and Robbie. I pray they will have acceptance some day and double up on their love for Jayden. I can't imagine the heartbreaking and painful times they are experiencing.

Family is so very important to me - This morning in my emails is a Carol Anne production of my Family Reunion in a Smilebox! I am so thrilled of her talents and more so her love in doing things for others. Means so much. It is remarkable that most of us have never met face to face but the bonding of friendship is unmeasurable! ♥ Thank you for making Memories for me!

Mema Jo said...

I'm not going to Market today due to traffic galore for Autumn days and Civil Was festivities on the way to Shepherdstown. I have a precious dear friend selling her flowers with the Basket man right across from her. That was my reason to go over - more baskets for gifts. The 3 I had gotten last weekend are in the hands already of daughters and granddaughter. Megan is doing the buying for me and I'll go visit her and her Hummers this week. ♥
