Friday

Friday update. 

I signed two of the procurements today, the third one next week.  We'll be scheduling a trip up the tree, around or just after Thanksgiving to replace the cam (which will have decent night vision).  In addition, we'll be adding some software that will improve the picture.

Have not seen the birds around, but I'm sure they are around.  This storm has disrupted a lot of the wildlife...

Thanks for the update and new thread Steve.

I'll gladly claim the feather, too!

paula eagleholic said...

Just reread your post Steve...that is terrific news! Thank you Steve and NCTC :)

Mema Jo said...

Whoo Hoo Paula! You deserved that feather♥

Steve that is Great news about our cam - couldn't be happier. I keep checking and so far the date and time are correct. Don't know if it will change itself tomorrow or not

Mema Jo said...

I am ready to call it an evening

The phone rang around 8:15 this evening and I thought 'not another political call'. But the voice on the
other end had a familiar sound to it but I couldn't make out all that was being said with the hesitancy in
between his words - Then Wham! it hit me! Michael - is that you and I heard a beautiful voice say "Yes Mom"
I told him his dad and I would be visiting tomorrow - was that ok? "Good" I asked is Ronnie still there visiting?
"Yes" Then on the phone I heard "Hello Mr & Mrs Lennox " - Ronnie is a Guardian Angel to Michael and to me!
I asked if Michael needed anything and Ronnie said a box of kleenex. Then we said Good Night to
our son. Within a few minutes the phone rang again and Ronnie says "Michael needs a toothbrush - he doesn't care
what color" I love my son's friends! God is good all the time ♥

Checking in before bed. Thanks Steve for the weekend thread and Paula for the call over!

Great news about a new cam! I sure do miss seeing our eagles - have not been watching any other nests - funny, but I feel disloyal to our pair when I do that! =)

Goodnight all - busy clean up weekend ahead for us!

Sandi said...

Posted before I read the comments on this thread. Jo, your post made me cry! I am so happy for you, and for Michael!!

OK, goodnight!

Lolly said...

Jo, for some reason your post brought tears to my eyes. God bless all of you. What a thrilling phone call for you.

Had crab cakes and green onion sauce for dinner. Was disappointed in the crab cakes as they were too strong tasting. Have to find another source of crab.

Hoda, you are too funny! Love you, too!

magpie said...

That's beautiful, Jo....
what a way to close out YOUR day and Michael's as well ...

Thanks for the Call Over, Paula,
and Thank You Steve!
What a way to finish out the evening for all of us...

Sure sounds good, just thinking about seeing our Royal Nest and its Royal Occupants once again
IS a happy thought!
xo 'Night all...xoxo

JudyE said...

Angie was told that Jordyn VPK class sang at 2 we got there before 2 and they were done already little disappointed but one of the moms there sent us the video so I put it on facebook The cool this is she did it with her phone and it was side ways but Youtube turns it around the right way so you don't have to turn you monitor around Odd I had a hard time with it She emailed it to Angie and then to Angie to me but when I try to view it on my puter its black but I can hear the singing but the odd thing is it went on youtube ok that is odd not forsure why I hope its not a sign of me getting puter issues I also had a hard time with angies new camera video When I first downloaded them my puter didn't register them I had to assign them I picked Qtime not Real player and I thing my window media player isn't working right either the option isn't there any more Dern it but if something happens to the puter I think it would be cheaper to get a new one I guess but I love my Vista I don't like windows 7 no tray on bottom to see what you have opened like all my nest I watch I would miss that I wonder what window 8 is like coming out the next month I saw advertised

Lolly said...

Sandi, we posted at the same time and we had the same reaction to Jo9's post....tears!

Have a good weekend, Sandi. Know you are going to be busy with cleanup, but so thankful it is not worse!!!

JudyE said...

saw the eagles at the shopping plaza cell phone tower tonight so our nesting season seem to be underway down here I googled it and said Nov to Dec eggs are laid So that is probably why I see them daily at the cell phone in the park huh

JudyE said...

Here is the video of the VPK class sort of singing (some kids sounded like they were yelling it) but was cute
Jordyn class singing today at school for Veteran's day

JudyE said...

We are trying to find the video if one of the parent if they took it of them singing in Greek the anthem so I hope we can find it Jordyn is learnig Greek too at the school hence the name Plato Academy

Mema Jo said...

Judy = it is so cold out there this evening! I have my long sleeve shirt on and thermostats in the house are all turned on! Enjoy your Outside Dinning! I loved all the photos from Halloween.

stronghunter said...

Great news about the cam.

So happy to hear that Michael called, Jo.

Glad your beach abode is in good shape, Paula.

A man came out to take pictures and measurements for my new siding. Yay.

Computer is acting up. Using phone tonight.

Good night. SED.

Lolly said...

Shirley, so happy for you that things are happening! It is time to get your house back in ship shape!!

Heading to bed. Sure hope I do not smell nor see Sasquatch.☺

Hoda said...

Goodnight,

PRAYERS♥

Costume Lady said...

Wow...CAM is in our near future!!
It has been a loooong time since we have watched our Royal Couple "clean house and arrange the furniture". And don't forget, we had an egg, one year, on January 30. We need this distraction to help take our minds off of the sadness that we have experienced this year~

Good night, sending prayers and love to all♥

T-Bird said...

Well, I'm up early this Saturday morning. I got up around 4:30 and I couldn't go back to sleep. I can't blame it on buddy this morning.

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

T-Bird said...

Does anyone know if the WV game is being televised today? If so, is it going to be on ESPN, Fox...?

DanaMo said...

Can't wait to see our Eagles!! Thanks Steve for the wonderful news!!

Good morning Thelma. I was up around 4ish too! Frisbee started bugging me.

Glad to hear the Michael spoke to Jo on the phone last night and that she is going to see him today.

Paula-Glad your house is okay. The pictures really tell a story.
What a mess!!

Frontier Town posted that they are open so I guess things are attempting to get back to normal at the beach.

DanaMo said...

Does anyone else watch the Great Dane cam out on MA? Apparently one of the puppies almost died last night or early this morning. Had to be resuscitated. Wow what a scare.

WCC here in MD will know if they are having a litter around Thanksgiving. They will apparently do an ultrasound of Misty to see if she is pregnant. Can't wait since they are close enough for me to visit. I would love to be a puppy parent but I think I am too far away. I am working on Monte in case it could work.

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds

Lori said...


Good Morning JUDYE, THELMA & DANAMO!


How exciting is that news from STEVE about the new cam? YeeeHaaa! I can't wait! Thank you, STEVE!


DANAMO, I don't watch the puppy cam, but wish I had time to. The pictures some post of them are sooo cute!


JO, so happy you got a call from Michael. I know that made your year! Enjoy your visit today!


THELMA, maybe you can get a nap today since you were up so early. :)


JUDYE, you doing anything special, besides work today?


Today is MARGY's FRIDAY!!! YAY!


JANET, congrats to Livvy on her private coach - at least until someone else joins her class. Nice of you to consider a private coach, too! What a Mom!


SANDI, knowing your lack of patience I'm sure you're going 100mph in your cleanup! Prayers for a speedy house recovery. :)

Sandi said...

Good Saturday morning Lori, Dana, Thelma, Judy, and all my eagle friends! Wow, slept til 7am! Have been waking up between 4:30 and 5am and not able to get back to sleep b/c I start thinking about all that needs to be done. Maybe my brain is starting to relax about the mess in the house ... or maybe I was just more exhausted than normal when I hit the bed!

Plugged in the downstairs refrigerator last night and it started. Told Denny he can give it away to someone. I don't trust it running 24/7 after it's had water in the motor. It was given to us so there's no financial loss and we only need it when we have lots of company in the summer.

No need to say what's on my agenda today. Need to feed the dogs and myself and get busy. Make it a great day all!

T-Bird said...

Most of you may remember how my computer quit working. It was almost 2 months until Andrew fixed it. Then I had to put duct tape on it to hold the screen in. Now the letter o doesn't work sometimes, more times than I can hardly stand. Do you think I may need to buy a new computer? Hmmm-one problem would be money. I ke to though. So forgive me if an o is missing into any of my wrds. LOL I know it will work out the way it is suppose to. I just hope it's the way I want it t.

T-Bird said...

Oh yeah, my up button has popped out too and the CTRL button is getting stuck.

T-Bird said...

P.S.II
My power chord broke and I had to buy another one.

Sandi said...

Thelma, srry abut yur sick cmputer. In sympathy, I am typing my pst withut that letter in any f my wrds! =) When my desktp hard drive died, I bught my laptp at Best Buy b/c they gave me 6 mnths same as cash s I culd spread ut the payments and nt pay any finance charges. Just a thught.

DanaMo said...

LOL or should I say LL

Janet said...

good morning to all!

its a beautiful sat a.m. here in west nashvegas. its about 40 degrees,warm day ahead, but then we get chilly for a few again. welcome to early fall in nashville!

i am up drinking coffee, having time with my computer, tv and beano .... he is such a snuggler in the mornings! i have to leave just before 9 to set up for my classes today.

so sorry, thelma for the sick computer! it is aggravating when they start to slow down, and then just get plain cantankerous.

i hope everyone's day is better....that things are improving for those involved in the storm. i was so delighted to read of michael's phone call to mema jo last night. i think of each of you, and those dear to you, hoping for a wonderful day!

hugs, light and love to all!

magpie said...

Good Morning Eagle Pals...
start looking forward to that extra hour of sleep tonight !
and then prepare for the earlier darkness in the evening :(

Not all locations do this, but we sure do here on the East Coast...I think Mountain time zones might not...

magpie said...

Lori!
the nephew buying the house
works at Mack (Volvo)Trucks in Hagerstown...
He has a really neat T-shirt with a Big Bulldog on it!
Made me think of you right away ☺

magpie said...

Best wishes to everyone for a great day..
hoping the clean ups go OK and not too discouraging

And Happy Michael Visiting Day to Jo and Ed !!

magpie said...

T-Bird:
I don't know about the Mountaineers game being televised or not...sorry...

I didn't even know who had won the World Series until last night so I am surely not one "in the know" about these sports things

magpie said...

yes, it's my Friday and also the last work day for me until November 13....
needed to take some time to do the moving transition thing...
also have a major carpal tunnel type ailment going on so being off the keyboards for awhile might help

magpie said...

so now I must start making a honest paycheck....
lots of work on the plate today...

Take Care, Precious Pals...
look in the mirror and smile at my good friend/s

and know that I love you !

God Bless Us, Every One
xoxo ♥


magpie said...

knowing that Steve commented on the fact that the storm "disrupted a lot of the wildlife...."
I sure hope things are going to be okay at NCTC...
at least I think we can safely assume that the Royal Sycamore survived ok !
Speaks volumes on the strength of the Mighty Sycamore !

grannyblt said...

GM eagle buds--so happy for all the positive news the last day or two.

I too, have been up at an unresonable hour. I have closed off the pet door, the very lively MOUSE in the bathtub at 6 am the other day was the last straw. Live animal count brought inside is 2 bunnies(maybe the same one twice) 2chipmonks and one mouse. Several dead voles. I should rename him Hunter--but I don't think Shirley and Kathryn would appreciate it.

Great news about the camera, Steve. Thank you so much for all you do in that regard.

glo said...

Good morning everyone. Good news on the cam for sure. HAGD

stronghunter said...

Our Hunter has not brought any voles, mice, or bunnies in that I know of! But Kathryn's cat Lucky was quite the hunter in his younger days. Kathryn did not put out a bird feeder because she felt that it would be a death trap for them.

magpie said...

Good Afternoon Eagle Pals...
Hope evryone is percolating along okay
