glo said...

Good morning everyone. Dex and I are off to the grocery. We went to the Marina yesterday looking for you know what. Not yet :-( but hopefully soon :-). So happy to read some good health news. Prayers now that Michael will get the right living arrangements upon his upcoming discharge for everyone concerned. MeMa Jo's Dr's appt is today.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Beautiful but very windy day here, as was yesterday. It is raining pecans. lol But, it is also raining leaves. groan.... So, out to mow and mulch leaves today. Expecting a front and rain on Sunday evening with a big drop in temps.

Guess, they are hammering away at Shirley's again today.

Janet, so sorry about the school incident! Joseph is loving middle school. My two loved it, too, when that age. Laurel was also shy, but I always encouraged her to not play the games girls play and she didn't. She found her good friends and was happy. What is funny is a lot of kids thought she was a snob. She was tall, beautiful, and shy!!!

Lolly said...

Glo, I saw something about Jo's appointment being changed. Not sure....think I missed a post.

Scratch Dex behind the ears for me!

Lolly said...

I am off to start my day...have a good one!!♥

glo said...

Lolly I think the change was from Thurs to Fri UNLESS there has been another change.

JudyE said...

Anyone wants to see another eagle and no its not cheating LOL there is one at Sequoyah just got out of the shower and she is still there
The sooner nest no eagle has been spotted since last month they think they may be nesting in the tower instead of the dead tree

JudyE said...

I have the OK Fl LaFarge and Washington nest up

JudyE said...

abd the Alcoa and Sidney nest too for got them

Sandi said...

Checking in from school to find a new thread. Thanks Steve and thanks to Judy for the call over.

Glo and Lolly, Jo reported that her appt. is now on Monday, the 12th.

Boring meeting this morning but hoping to be super productive this afternoon - I'm even having a working lunch. OK, gotta run!

Sandi said...

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good morning again from the new thread!

Lolly said...

Thanks, Sandi! Enjoy in-service. LOL Yes, it is a break from kiddos, but I am sure there is more that you would rather be working on.

glo said...

Well I am glad MeMa Jo still has an appt. To be honest I am frustrated that the date keeps changing. I want that thing OUT OF THERE 3 weeks ago. JMHO sigh...

JudyE said...

back from having luch with Angie and the cell phone tower nest at the park had the eagle in it agian I jusst bed there are eggs there because I see them daily

JudyE said...

eagle at Alcoa now up close to the can see chest and feet and on occasion a beak

Hoda said...

No snow here today even though they kept telling us of a big storm...nothing!!! Nada and I am not complaining.

Yes JO posted appointment moved to November 12th. Thanks SANDI for clearing it up.

All is well here and we are working on African dinner and getting excited that the tickets are moving so well.

Sad to see the funeral of the two little boys who got swept away by Hurricane Sandy...heartbreaking.

Mema Jo said...

Good evening - I was up and out early this morning. Spent some time at Kernan with Christine and Patrick and my hubby.
The 20th is now Michael's discharge date. The weather was beautiful and should stay that way for a couple of days. BBL

NCSuzan said...

Good Evening! Wow, the comments are getting punier and punier!

Jordan Lake is instaling new cams with night vision. Soon to be ready because they are anticipating eggs the middle of December!

Also Turtle Bay, which used to be Caltrans, also installed cams this year and should be available Dec. 1, I think they said.
It's so very exciting to see Eagle season beginning in some places.

Now if I can just make it to January when Downton Abbey comes back to the US.....

Hoda said...

NCSuzan...Great reviews in England on Downtown Abby. You will love the season...

JudyE said...

WOW 23 comments in a 12 hour period

Just got home from a evening with Jordyn only We went to the park till dark then to eat and chick fl la play area

GREAT NEWS I think we have eggs got picture of both eagle in the cell phone tower and could see the one on the nest just a sitting so I am asuming we have eggs Would love to climb up it to see but thing they may frown on that LOL

NCSuzan said...

Hoda, that's great to hear. The storylines and the costumes are certainly a good way to pass those winter evenings.

Mema Jo said...

I have watched my Mystery Theater - I really do enjoy the English films. You can never guess 'who done it' - it is
usually a surprise.

I am calling it a day. Good weather for tomorrow.. Prayers for all
I Love Us ♥

Miss you Lynn ♥

stronghunter said...

Happy to report that the siding job is done!

Inside work still to be done. No schedule for that yet. I hope next week.

Hoda said...

Congratulations SHIRLEY.
I too hope they do the inside of your house next week.

Good night JO I agree with you about British Mysteries.

ENJOY NCZuzan

I just finished my shrimp broccoli and quinoa supper it was delicious with ginger sauce...

stronghunter said...

A little piece of porch rail still needs to be done outdoors. Siding guy said they do siding. Do I get a rail guy?

stronghunter said...

Going to call the contractor Monday and ask about the rail guy.

paula eagleholic said...

Evening all. Safely here at Paradise. Looks like a quiet day on the blog. Got lots to clean up here still..just me this weekend ...bro was a no show...bbialw

paula eagleholic said...

Oh yea , Nick is here too :) Maybe he can help carry sticks :)

Costume Lady said...

Our family Friday was minus Jayden and had an additional Dustin, plus Denise, Brandon and Karla,
GG was in such a wonderful mood, the girls couln't believe how much she has changed! She still has pain, but her mood is so much better...anti-depressant is definitely working for her!
Dustin is still going to Fire Academy and is also a High School Senior and will graduate in May! Where did the time go?
Dustin had chest pains and was very agitated after Fire Class a few days ago. Karla was near the Fire Station, so she took him there, put him in an ambulance and give him an EKG and some oxygen, one of the EMTs ran an IV line into him and off to the hospital they went with lights and sirens blasting. He was given all sorts of tests and could not find the problem. They are concerned about any heart damage that he had when he was at Charlottesville Hospital with LYMES DISEASE. An echocardigram will be in the making next week, MTBR

Gene and I will be headed to church in the morning to start preparing for the Church's Thanksgiving dinner, this Sunday.
Need plenty sleep to get that job done!
GOOD NIGHT DEAR FRIENDS
LOVE AND PRAYERS FOR ALL♥

Hoda said...

Goodnight

PRAYERS♥

Lolly said...

Wanda, our church is having Thanksgiving dinner Sunday, too. I will be up early Sunday making my sweet potato dish.

Off to see Joseph's soccer game tomorrow, but we do not have to get up early as game is at 1:30,

Glad GG is doing so well, but hate to hear about Dustin having problems.

Time to call it a day. Night all!

SED!!!!

paula eagleholic said...

No don't like to hear about Dustin either...glad it is getting checked out

Good that Michaels discharge date has been moved back

Got lots of tractor m.arks in the yard :(

Had some high water this week here too...have to fix end of path to the beach

Very still here tonight...think tom will be pretty

Gonna hit it

Sed love and hugs for all :)

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

T-Bird said...

Buddy got me up way to early this morning. I don't know what is wrong with his schedule.??

DanaMo said...

Good morning. I am up for now, but really am thinking that I will go back to bed. Monte is heading out on a Boy Scout hike to Old Rag and I just might go back to bed after he leaves.

Lori said...

Well Hello early birds Dana and Thelma!


I got up at 2...this time change is messing with all of us!

Sandi said...

Good Saturday morning Thelma, Dana, and all my eagle friends!

Got caught up on a lot of paperwork yesterday without kids at school. Still have an IEP to write over this weekend but at least it's a 3-day one (off Monday for Veteran's Day). Decided not to go to Balto. - Mom is doing OK and Lisa is OK with checking in on her. Our mayor has someone from FEMA (who issues our flood policies) and the DE Insurance Commissioner coming to South Bethany today to meet with people who have been denied coverage for their flood damage. I really want to be there to make my case.

Happy to hear that Michael's discharge date has been moved to the 20th - the more time he has at Kernan, the better!

Wanda, great news about GG but very scary about Dustin! Did the lyme go a long time undiagnosed, since the docs suspect possible damage to his heart?

Good morning to Lori, who just checked in!

Make it a great day all!

Sandi said...

Forgot to say hooray to Shirley for getting the outside of the house back to normal! =)

Paula, glad there wasn't any damage to the house from the nor'easter!

magpie said...

Good Morning Precious Eagle Pals...
Great to SEE you here, and it sounds like lots of "us" are going to be busy today !
Hope the weather is nice like it was yesterday....

xoxo

T-Bird said...

I sure hope we all fill our homes and family with love today.
Hey, it is another day closer till see our eagles. I cannot wait.

magpie said...

Paula, our Lynn ♥ would surely say you are a Whirling Dervish with all the work you are doing there at The Paradise...

that expression also applies to many more here: including Sandi!

Hope all the aftermath cleanup and restoration goes well

magpie said...

T-Bird..it does kind of seem that Buddy's internal clocks did not change last week !

Hope he gets in the groove pretty soon and your sleep schedule returns to normal

magpie said...

Reading Wanda's post...
joyful about the Friday Night Family Fun line-up...so glad that Dustin was able to be there in spite of his medical emergency..
hoping and praying for good results on all the tests...
and his Academics, how about that,
the Fire Academy...that is so neat....something Dustin loves, and seems very good at !

magpie said...

Nice thought, T-Bird...I got the blog on so My Roost will be filled with love all day.. ! ☺ ♥

Boy is this place a mess, my apartment....been neglected for too long now I want to turn into a Home again at least for a few weeks....

magpie said...

Now that the elections are over,
the Christmas push will be full steam ahead...
but
This week-end is Veterans Day Week-end and there will be many good television programs on...last night I watched a Public Television program on West Virginians at War...from before the Revolution to Desert Storm...simply amazing and thought-provoking.

God Bless Our Veterans, today, tomorrow...every day !

magpie said...

Debris piles await me
Best Wishes to Every One for a Good Day....

and special thoughts on those preparing Thanksgiving Meals for those in the community...
a blessed ministry...

ttfn xoxo

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds

WANDA great news about GG
SANDI also good news about your mom and the progress of your cleanup
SHIRLEY isn't under blue tarp thats good news too

so sorry Margy and Paula also have some mess to deal with

JO so happy about Michael progress and happy he get a couple of more days to recoup there

magpie said...

Hey there JudyE,
I guess this is a work day for you...
hope it goes well and is friendly

My mess here is entirely self-imposed but thanks for the sympathy!
Until I get things squared away,
it surely looks like I am a hoarder!

magpie said...

Yes also to the Miracle Michael reports...simply amazing, what a strong will and desire he has to recover...
Glad to read that the stay at Kernan is extended, and that more good news comes along every day

Prayers for Wellness Amongst Us

Janet said...

good Saturday morning to all!

shirley: great news about the siding!

just did a quick read and it sounds like everyone is doing okay this morning.

glad it is saturday. i was so tired yesterday.... and i am especially thankful for the massage that i am receiving at noon today! when i teach class on the weekend, i work 9 to 12 days straight, depending on private clients and such. and i try to get a massage at the end of that to work out the kinks....

yesterday was a better day for olivia. thankfully, she only sees this particular child 2x a day. homeroom and either pe/recess. recess i think. the latter are two separate events. anyway, the child was calling olivia a snitch. i said to livvy, well if she had not put her hands on you, there would have been nothing to snitch would there? i do worry about it. kids can be very mean. and that is what concerns me.

tom thinks olivia should fight back once and for all and be done with it. stand up for herself. and while, yes, i can see that point, i worry about the u tube crap you see, with kids ganging up on each other, using weapons and such. olivia is very sweet, not very savvy to those kinds of things.....

she hangs with her buddies, devonna and poni. and so she has friends and for the most part seems be doing okay. being shy, and very quiet, yes, i suppose she is thought of as a snob, perhaps. her main comment is most kids won't give me a chance because i'm white.

but, like i tell her , the number of friends you have isn't what's important, its the quality.

like i said, middle school sucks. if you aren't in the popular group....if you aren't an athlete, prom queen, etc....well, its tough. but we all live thru it don't we? i mean, she doesn't come home upset/sad etc every day, but it just ticks me off when she does. it especially ticks me off for reasons as such, someone putting their hands on my child.

we have to deal with all kinds in life, don't we? and i tell her this. not everyone whom you meet will be nice.

anyway, so, i have a busy day planned. heading to wally world in a few to get some paint to paint my kitchen! i want it done prior to thanksgiving!!!!

i am going to do some on line shopping. hopefully 95% of my holiday shopping will be complete this week.

i hope those cams come in soon. i am thinking bout belle and shep and wondering about them ....

hope everyone has a great day. its so nice here, 48 and going to about 70 today.

hey, quick question: i have my summer birds STILL in my birdhouses. ??????? normally i take the birdhouses down and clean them in october, but they are still in there! i see them going in and out????? anyone else ever experience this?

later ya'll. hugs, light and love

magpie said...

What kind of summer birds, Janet....
some like bluebirds and goldfinches stay around..or at least I am still seeing them...
and some summer birds like Robins also overwinter.
Maybe they just Love your place and do not want to leave
Others here will give a better answer, probably....

xo Have a Good Day !
Best wishes on all things working out for Olivia...beautiful name, by the way !

Judie said...

Well, for cryin' out tears! Woke up yesterday morning to the sound of banging and hammering to just deafen a person. Finally called a news station. Seems there was some serious home repair work down Shirley's way. Quieter this morning.

Thoughts and positive wishes for all who are in the process of cleaning up property and those who have family concerns.

Wanda, so happy GG is showing significant improvement and that Family Friday was good fun. Sorry, however, about Dustin and wish him a quick diagnosis and recovery.

Margy is correct -- Miracle Michael. An amazing example of the family spirit and determination.

Jo, will be thinking of you on Monday.

Margy, maybe after you get your roost back in order -- a visit with Tom Sweetie?

Hoda, I've heard you were in need of the sandperson. I'll see if he can return if still needed.

Wishing everyone a wonderful, sun-filled weekend.

paula eagleholic said...

Good morning!

Got my live eagle fix for the day!

Think the buffleheads have arrived

Very calm and still here this morning

Think the navy is having practice out in the bay today

Off to the races! Make it a good one!

magpie said...

Oh Joy, Judie !

And sounds wonderful where you are too Paula...hoping it is a great Maryland Weather Day !

Ah, the Navy....if you and Nick are there by your lonesomes....at least it sounds like you are in good company !!
Yay on the Eagle sighting -

magpie said...

I think it was so neat the way Steve opened up the thread on Friday....
commenting on what a beautiful West Virginia morning upon us....

Betting it was beautiful where he left from also, on his way to West Virginia...
Thanks Steve... it was a beautiful comment....and we West Virginians agree, up in these parts anyway...
and I hope in the whole rest of the state also...
and we have another one today upon us!

glo said...

Off to Springfield today. My almost 93 yr old mother in law fell yesterday and is in the hospital. Dex and a friend is going with . CYA later.

Lolly said...

Well curse words! I made a post, walked away and came back and saw I needed to log in. Then it told me error and I lost my post. Grrr!

Excuse my manners! GOOD MORNING!

Great to see so many comments this morning. Really great to see Judie and so many posts from Margy. Love you guys and miss when you are not on!!

Lolly said...

Beautiful fall day here today..69 and sunny. Leaves are falling fast and furiously! Mowed and mulched yesterday...needs it again. Can hear our neighbor mowing. Weather changes tomorrow...colder temps and good chance for rain and storms. Need the rain!

Heading to Denton in a couple hours for a soccer game!

Lolly said...

Joseph and Jacob go show what they can do in basketball and then the coaches pick their teams. This will be Jacob's first time. He is wearing Joseph's basketball shoes. Not his first shoes, they are too small, they are the shoes that Joseph just out grew...ladies 8 1/2. Now mind you this is a "little " boy in second grade!!

magpie said...



Glo,
though you have already left....
hoping all will be okay with yoru mother in law....so sorry to read that she fell.


Lolly...are you going to get to Dallas ???

Lolly said...

Not sure, Margy! I have a very difficult son!!! He was supposed to have called me back and has not. Nothing new....he always waits til the last minute for everything!

magpie said...

Have fun in Denton with the family, L☺lly

magpie said...

oh phooey on that, Lolly....
hope you can get that Zacharooski time in soon !!!

Mema Jo said...

Good morning - Prayers for Dustin

Glad to hear that your house is finished and will hold up against any bad weather on its way.

Happy about GG's disposition! Sometimes I think I need some of those pills ♥

Paula I sure hope Nick did help you out somewhat with the stick removal.

Margy is this your week off - I can't keep up with you.

Judi - we certainly do need our Sandman alerter back with us. Miss you.

Nothing on my agenda today except most importantly going to Mass and saying my prayers.

BBL

Mema Jo said...

Prayers for you Glo - hope you find your mil recovering and with the best of care. ♥

paula eagleholic said...

Welcome back Judie!

Neighbor saw the eagle trying to get a duck this morning...eagle not successful

I saw another eagle

The loons are here!

Mema Jo said...

Reminder: 10th Managed NCTC Deer Hunt
Dates: November 24; December 1, 8, & 15

Just mentioning due to maybe having our cam up by those dates.
http://nctc.fws.gov/deerhunt.html

magpie said...

G'Morning Jo !
Always a comfort when you are here with us...part of that love part of the day that T-Bird mentioned earlier....

This past week I was off, still am for a couple more...(regular days off Sun and Mon)
but it has been a working week of a different kind

paula eagleholic said...

The loons are out front diving and eating...

Gorgeous here

paula eagleholic said...

They are a brownish grey with a white throat

magpie said...

OH are they doing their trebelo-ing or whatever that phrase is when they sing...there were two phrases used I think for their sounds

Glad you got such good weather, Paula...it is beauteous here also...
I am de-gardening the gardening and squishing some special seeds into the ground with hopes for Happy Blooms next springtime

magpie said...

degardening the garden that is, what was left...
still had nicotianas blooming...but they were surrounded by other things that had to go...
but some of THEIR seeds got squished into the wonderfully warm and pliant soil here

magpie said...

I know Jo is just about to join a whole bunch of folks in prayer....
I believe 5 is her Mass time...
Praying with you, Jo...

magpie said...

In addition to some other fine folks I haven't "seen" here, I am missing CarolAnne....
but I did miss a whole bunch of days right around Frankenstorm...

magpie said...

Garden is all tucked away for the winter...
have some flags placed...
wishing I had a BIG GRAND FLAG POLE
though

magpie said...

I'm wondering if Kay and Seth and Malcom will be Radio-side for Prairie Home Companion...I am going to punch it in here soon, and whistle while I work, and laugh for sure

ttfn Hope the Evening is going well ...

Prayers for Wellness amongst us, our families, friends and pets !

xoxo ♥

magpie said...

Well I have the wrong time, maybe it comes on at 6...

NatureNut said...

Margy, You are probably gone! Boo. I need t0 read back on the blog some, but wanted to mention in order to force a silver lining, I put some sets of pics in the Nook. Yesterday's sighting made our day and month!!!!
Know some are at Church and even if you're not and need prayers---you definitely have ours! ☺ ♥
BBL---got hungry

NatureNut said...

DUH! Posted twice.
Paula, how wonderful you saw the loons in person!

magpie said...

OH I am still around, Loretta...

got sidetracked into a box of my Hoogland family photographs....
I shall check out the Nook pictures very soon...just got a couple of emails to check out...
AND, PHC IS now on, came on at 6 pm.

NatureNut said...

Thx, Margy, I'll try to find the show!

Hoda said...

Very good to see JUDIE back...Yes JUDIE and it is all your fault!!! LOL!!! Sleep patterns going to h*** in a bucket LOL!!! I miss visiting with you on the blog and I miss your comments. I also miss Carol Anne very much and it is all wonderful to know we are out there for each other.

JANET I do not agree with TOM on OLIVIA duking it out with the bullies!!! She will become more of a target and they in a warped way will feel victimized and blame her. Keep the school administrators aprised of the situation and work with her to stay confident with her own self esteem. Yes middle school is tough and yes kids can be mean!!! They are kids however and they could be pushed back to their place. Sorry it is happening to Olivia.

PRAYERS for all who are working on issues.

PAULA glad the cleaning is going well.

I found the most amazing Toscan Kale at the health food store and I am going to make KALE CHIPS this weekend. Delicious.

Very cold here. I am wearing my woolies and it still cuts through me when I do not have my coat zipped up...
Snow on the mountains make the wind cutting cold.

THELMA I much appreciated seeing your MOM'S pictures on FB Thank you. You look like her.

magpie said...

Loretta...I have it on the WV NP channel on FM radio...
something around 89.9 or thereabouts...or you could listen on line...
okay, on to the Nook!

I hear the Mountaineers are playing...hope they win !
xo

magpie said...

Great photos, Loretta, nice trip to the Nook !

magpie said...

pretty funny
Garrison just used the letters
RFLMAO
in a skit

magpie said...

ROFLMAO that is

Hoda said...

MARGY GARRISON as in KEELOR...is he still on the radio? How I loved his humour...
Of to see The Nook

Hoda said...

Well does anyone remember how to follow a blog? I tried to follow Naturenut's Nook and I failed miserably!!! Nice photos Loretta.

magpie said...

Hoda, Yes...every week, sometimes the shows are live, some are repeats...

Lolly said...

We are home...watching football. Thrilled that the TX Aggies beat Alabama and now cheering TCU on!

Soccer was fun! They go on a point system. Joseph's team needed to score 4 goals to get first place. They scored four, but the other team scored once, so do not know how that affects the results. Will know next week...first place or second! Not bad!

JudyE said...

Here is one of two image of the day I didn't have time this week to look at them till just now


this is a beauty


Happy little crater on Mecury

JudyE said...

JUDIE you have been dearly missed by one and all.

ttfn xo

glo said...

Home from Springfield. Mom's vitals are all pretty good. She is comfortable but she doesn't look so good bless her heart. She has a fractured vertebrae so is in a collar and her whole right side of her face is tremendously swollen and black and blue. She did respond to me when I got there and when I left. I saw her follow commands to take a couple of pills and eat a few bites of a muffin and rink
a little ensure. The bleeding in the brain area has stopped. She has to get past the threat of blood clots as the blood re absorbs itself. Once that happens I think she will make a good recovery. I may head back in a few days . Thanks for the prayers everyone. Oh and my car behaved. Dex of course is an awesome traveler so that was never an issue. V for a while.

magpie said...

Dear Glo...that sounds like a serious fall....sounds as though she has already gotten good care and for sure, your being there must have been a real boost....
I'll be praying for her comfort, and complete recovery...
glad Dex was a good traveling companion for you, what a difference it must have made, not to have made that trip by yourself

Judie said...

GDub lost to Youngstown State. Real nail-bitter for awhile. Still, nice to get out for a few minutes.

Hoda, please remember to wear socks with your shoes. Hope the kale chips are extra tasty.

Margy, get some rest and give a howdy do to Tom Sweetie.

Glo, do hope you MIL improves quickly.

Need to check Lowreeda's nook.

Judie said...

And now, for any an all who may be in need of sleep (Hoda, do you hear me?)

The sandperson is packing his sleepy dust as I type. Says he will begin making rounds soon. So, do what you need to do and prepare for some restful sleep. (Hoda, do you hear me?)

Lolly said...

Glo...keeping your MIL in prayer. Bless her!

Lolly said...

Love it, Judie! Insuring Hoda a good nights sleep!

stronghunter said...

Hi,

Trying to catch up.

Hoda said...

I hear you JUDIE!!! LOVE YOU and so happy to see you on here...I have woolen socks in my shoes I have I have!!!

magpie said...

If I hadn't been magpie-ing so much you would have less to catch up on Shirley... just skip through mine because it's just mostly a'ramble... and stick to the important stuff ☺
Bath done, wow, water is "harder" here but water pressure much greater! Either way I am squeaky clean

magpie said...

sorry they lost, Judie...but
glad you were there, know your students love that!

paula eagleholic said...

Evening all!

Slam wore out tonight....worked past dark

Amazing find of the day...I found a baby diamond back terrapin under a pile of debris...he was only a tad bigger than a quarter ... returned him to the water

Oh Margy I did get to hear the loons calling this morning...it was beautiful

Hoda said...

Awesome rescue PAULA! Thankl you...

stronghunter said...

I was using my cell phone earlier because i was trying to run a scan on the computer. I am still using Will's loaner. I have to do something about the power cord on my laptop. O fix whatever is the problem. Will got a power cord from Radio shack. My laptop does not approve. Wants a Dell one.

stronghunter said...

Margy, do not worry about your posts. I enjoy them.

stronghunter said...

Also very happy to see Judie on here. We should all get a better night's sleep with her sandperson making rounds.

Mema Jo said...

Calling it a day - very happy to see all that were here today.

Sandman got me!
Good Night to all and God Bless you and keep you safe in His arms.

Prayers for all our needs...
Thinking of you Lynn ♥

I Love Us ♥

stronghunter said...

I'm with you, Jo. I am sleepy. Going to turn out the light here at my abode. Will leave the night light on.

SED, everyone.

NatureNut said...

It got late again!!!!
Glad to see so many checking in tonight!
Judie, sorry GW lost, but glad you got out and are sending the sandman around, especially to Hoda! LOL
Shirley, hope your home is more comfy & they fix it all ASAP.
Glo, glad your Mom is recovering. Prayers for her ♥
So happy to read the other day that Sharon's friend is CA free! ☺ And Thelma's BIL is better!
I'm gonna keep saying Shakespeare's line of "Out, out, dam* spot" until it's the truth!
Margy, you've been doing ungardening you say. I guess you mean at the Apt. I've been almost ready to do the same, except most of the flower pots have flowers and some leaves! I can't bear to throw them out yet until they get brown. Do have to repot a couple perrenials----2 blue salvias in the same pot! Never thought they would get so big!
Talked to daughter in TX and she had jury duty for 2 days and became foreman! Small trial, only 6jurors. Was for DUI. Guy had refused the breath tests and the other tests on the dash cam video looked OK. Jury concluded not guilty as State didn't prove the charges even if he was impaired. Judge agreed!

Paula, how wonderful you found a baby terrapin!!! Film at 11 Sunday??
Time to say Good Health Prayers for Dana's Dad, Michael, Jo and all others in need ☺ ♥ and
Special Feather Dreams ;>)

magpie said...

Just about Good Night from here also.
Neato, Paula about the Terrapin...
right place, right time, that's YOU.
Bet Nick was pretty excited about it too !
Watched " A Walk in the Clouds " with Keanu Reees...nuthin' like a little love story to take one's mind off things for a bit ♥

Keep those flowers going long as you can, Loretta...
and Shirley, hope you get the computer things all fixed up, Pronto!

Prayers for Wellness All Around...

Good Night, Precious Pals

God Bless Us, Every One
xoxo ♥

magpie said...

ooops, Reeves
I guess I spelled the rest of it right

'Night-night, Every One !

Janet said...

late good evening folks.

MAGPIE; these are just normal house wrens. nothing fancy or special. i like to watch them and their families, but i don't remember them ever staying in their homes this long....its waaayyy too late for babies. but they keep going in and out of the homes. odd to say the least.

HODA: THANK YOU. you know it is just tough raising kids. i don't want her duking it out.....i don't know. the whole thing just bothers me. now, mind you, if she is backed into a corner and needs to defend herself, she remembers some hapkido moves and i have always told her to use them and if she uses them do what she has to do, disable that person and get away and get help. get a teacher/administrator, etc.

its been a busy day. i started painting my kitchen. there isn't a lot to paint, but had to put two coats of kilnz down first. i will have some time Tuesday and wed hopefully to complete the job.

Hitting the shower and then getting comfy/cozy with my pillows and blankets. Good night, ya'll.

Hoda said...

JUDIE The Sandperson just got here...

Goodnight All

PRAYERS♥

Hoda said...

JANET I just read your post. Defending herself if physically attacked and she can not walk away from it is kosher! I am starting a prayer chain for Olivia that she be well and not feel she is what the bullys say...walk strong Olivia walk strong girl!

BLESSINGS♥

Costume Lady said...

It was good to see JUDIE'S posts on here today...know she is busy with other things these days, but do miss seeing her comments~

GG was still in her PARTY MOOD today, she said if she felt just a little bit better, she would do a little dance for us:) She said she ENJOYED herself so much last evening, that she hasn't enjoyed herself so much in a long time! That was heavenly music to my ears!
I told her that I thought her good moods was due to a new pill for depression and she said "well, whatever it is, please keep giving it to me"! God is good!

We got the turkeys all cooked and meat off of the bones, white separated from the dark and a very light gravy poured over it all to keep it moist and tasty. All skin and fatty pieces are up in our woods for the animals. Haven't fed them in a while...hope we get some Trail Cam photos:)
Loretta's FOX is so beautiful, seems to be a larger specimen than ours.

Heading back to the church kitchen in the morning to slice pies and cakes for dessert. All this work for the meal, and Gene and I won't be able to enjoy it...We are going to a friends 50th anniversary party at the same time as the church dinner~
Need more sleep for some stamina;)

GOOD NIGHT DEAR FRIENDS, SLEEP WELL, PRAYERS AND LOVE FOR ALL♥

Lolly said...

Watched football and then read. Now time to say good night!

Scanned the blog really quick.

Paula....how fantastic you heard the loons. What I would give to hear them!!!!! Lucky you!!

Night all! SED!!!!

Lori said...


Goood Morning Eagle Friends!!!


I slept in until 3:30 this morning - better than yesterday waking up at 2!


So nice to see JUDIE on here!


Wish we would hear from LINDA & LYNNE2.


Going to be a nice day around these parts - close to 70! HODA, so glad you didn't get the snow!


SANDI, how did it go yesterday with the FEMA people?


WANDA, so nice of you and Gene to cook the church dinner.


LOLLY, enjoy your church dinner today. Wish I was 1/8 the cook that you & WANDA are!

Sandi said...

Good Sunday morning my eagle friends - looks like I'm the first to check in this AM!

Lori said...

Maybe this will get their attention!



LINDA LINDA LINDA LINDA LINDA LINDA



LYNNE2 LYNNE2 LYNNE2 LYNNE2 LYNNE2



Please report to the blog!

Sandi said...

Glo, sounds like your mom-in-law must have had some fall! Prayers and positive energy that she recovers slowly but surely!

Janet, middle schoolers can be ugly and middle school GIRLS are the worst! I understand parents telling their kids to defend themselves with physical force, but if the school has a zero tolerance policy for fighting, the person defending himself/herself can also get suspended. Tough for parents to know their child is being bullied and to offer the right advice.

Love my new binoculars - images are so much crisper and brighter than with my old ones. Plus the new ones are lighter to carry and have a nice wide neck strap (they also came with a harness but I didn't try it out yesterday). I saw lots of birds, which did my heart good, but couldn't go to the eagle nest b/c it's deer firearm season and hunting is allowed on the wildlife refuge property (how can that be? Seems wrong to call a place a wildlife refuge and then allow folks to hunt there!!)

School work and grocery shopping for me today. Plus the flood insurance adjuster will be here this morning to tell us the same thing we were told at yesterday's meeting - very little damage below the first elevated living floor (10 feet above the ground) is covered by our flood insurance. But at least we'll find out what little bit IS covered. Again, what a scam this flood insurance is!!

Make it a great day all - hope I can get outside again for a bit - it's supposed to be beautiful today!

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

T-Bird said...

Here I am up early on a Sunday morning.

T-Bird said...

I can't even

T-Bird said...

I can't even blame it on Buddy this morning, he slept with his Sissy.

JudyE said...

GOOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDS

Lori said...

Good Morning, THELMA, JUDYE and SANDI!

T-Bird said...

The Southern Delegation has a beautiful sunrise this morning. I also enjoyed seeing the crescent moon.

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING LADIES...
Now that we have so many of our trees cut down, I too, can see the crescent moon, Thelma. Before, we could not see it until it was high in the sky. I love being able to see the sky, now, but miss the pretty, graceful spruce trees...I do not miss the mess their dropped needles made all over our patio and sidewalk. Not to mention the needles all over our deck and in our food when we ate outdoors!

Heading back to church this morning to cut the pies and cakes that are brought to share after the dinner. Do you have any idea how hard it is to have your hands on so many magnificient desserts and not be able to eat them?!:(
This is the meal that, if anything is left over, goes to the Soup Kitchen. Last year, we had enough that we didn't have to cook anything...just heat up the turkey and fixings:)

Time to get ready. HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY AND A BEATIFUL DAY♥

magpie said...

Oh Joy...the crescent Moon...and if you saw that bright object to its left...that was Venus, the Planet of L♥ve...

Good Sunday Morning, Eagle Pals


God Bless Our Veterans on this Veterans Day....today, every day...

magpie said...

Sounds like a great Thanksgiving Event for Wanda and Gene's Church folks...but sorry they cannot attend, but wow, a 50th Wedding Anniversary gala for their friends....that's something Great also!

and how about that GG, these are great reports we are getting...

magpie said...

throwing my hollers in too:

Calling out for Linda and
Lynne2 !


Hope you are well, hale and hearty and that wellness prevails in your households..

Lynne2 said...

WHAT IS ALL THE SHOUTING ABOUT????

Lynne2 said...

time to change the Halloween Eagle...

Lynne2 said...

I have been here in spirit....

Prayers ongoing for Jo, Michael, Sandi's mom, Glo's MIL and Dana's dad, and for Thel's BIL.... for clean ups and repairs for Shirley, Sandi and Paula...and for Margy getting her own roost back in order, too! Hoping Dustin is OK, praying for clear ECG.

Really good to hear the GG is doing so well!

magpie said...

Perfect Avatar, Lynne2:

Soooooo good to SEE You...

xoxoxoxoxox ☺ ♥

magpie said...

Oh, Google Image is beautiful today also...
I am surprised to see this
Thank you Google !

magpie said...

I have a James the Wise Kidster visit ahead of me, so am signing off now...

Best wishes to All, for a very special day, especially, for our Veterans....

Prayers for Wellness amongst us, and for our families, friends and pets
xoxox ♥

glo said...

Good morning everyone. 70 yesterday and light snow in the forecast tonight. I am off to a slow start. No news from my niece re my MIL but I will talk with her later today. Had a lot of trouble going to sleep last night but as I unwind a bit I will relax and my guess is both Dex and i shall have an afternoon nap on the sofa :-). Prayers for all making their way through recovery and the storms of life.

Lynne2 said...

an EAGLE just soared over the house!!!!! On the thermals, heading south....WOO HOO

Mema Jo said...

Good late Sunday morning to all my friends. Hello Lynne! I surely hope that some of your missing animal postings help in finding those critters!
I am glad you heard all of the Momsters hollering for you.

Wanda - wonderful about GG and maybe I
will need one of her pills if it means dancing! Hope we get a report on Dustin from you soon. Enjoy the wedding anniversary celebration for your friends.

Loretta - I took time and looked at all your Nook pictures. They are so beautiful - enjoyed seeing the pheasant that Greg didn't see! lol

Mema Jo said...

Margy - you have an afternoon of good weather to share time with James. Enjoy

Paula - the turtle was so small - I am so thankful you found him and saved him
I bet you were cautious thinking there could be more - he was a cutie!

Hoda - Miss you when I am not on here as often as I would like to be chatting with you. There is an Alpaca show close by - I wonder how much they charge for their socks. A pretty penny I suppose.

Mema Jo said...

Janet - My heart goes out to Olivia with the bullying at school. Most schools up here are really addressing the 'bullying' situation. Good part is asking for peers to help peers.

Shirley - when is it Open House? I sure hope you find a 'rail guy'

Sandi, I am glad your mom is 'walking tall' She sure is a trooper. Happy you took time to go bird watching. Sorry Fema isn't able to help out - I agree with the Flood Insurance coverage.

Mema Jo said...

Thelma - just face it - You are an Early Bird and it isn't Buddy's doing.
It is great to greet each day just like you do - Cheerful and grateful!

Mema Jo said...

Lolly - loved the pic of you and your favorite Goalie! And also of you and your 3 grandsons!

Judy - Jordyn's pic of her at school seem to day that you & Angie have picked the right school for her. Love your park pics

I will bbl - Need some sunshine

Lolly said...

Good afternoon! Tummy is full of turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, all the sides as well as pecan pie. Oh my!!! Had a great turn out at church to celebrate veterans, commitments, and Thanksgiving.

We are heading to Dallas shortly. Michael, or I should say, Zach called this morning. As usual, apologized for not calling sooner. Anyway, we are headed to Dallas to see the game and play with Zach.

Wow! Lynne, finally heard our yelling. Lynne, very cool that you spotted an eagle!

Have a great day....we will be home late tonight. I am upset as the front has moved through here and we did not get the rain they predicted. It is all east of us.
Curse words!!

Later Gators!!♥

NCSuzan said...

Beautiful afternoon to all! It is supposed to be in the seventies here this week. I love it!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, isn't it? Wow, how time flies.

JudyE said...

Judie said...

Oh good grief! I see Tom Sweetie has some competition from a stud muffin to be named Zackarooski. "As the Blog Turns" is alive and well.

Judie said...

Lunch with Interpol friend today. Finished a profile for a police exercise in December. Exam to create tomorrow.

National Bear Center reports that Little Midge has died. She was found dead, natural causes, age 29.

Sandperson is bumping around loading sleepy dust and will soon be on his rounds. Restful sleep for all.

glo said...

:-) Hi Zach Zack Zachery Zacherooski :-)

magpie said...

Yes, Zacharooski was our Kidster of Honor tonight !!

What a refreshing treat...

Hi Glo, Judie, JudyE
and all Precious Pals in all our Eagle Corners

magpie said...

outstanding and very moving program on the Veterans

So much to say Thank You for...

We have many Veterans amongst us, and therefore many families as well...many also in active service...
I am truly at a loss for words on what to say and how to say it...

God Bless You All, and
Thank you Ever So Much,
Today, Every Day


Hoda said...

Awesome visit from Zacharoo...well done young man.

Great to see LYNNE on here. Thank you LYNNE

Would like to see LINDA and C/A

JO yes Alpaca wool costs a penny and a half. I have some great socks this year. I went with the smartwool socks and I am very very very happy with them. They are well worth it.

Reading a terrific book. Spent the day in reflection and when I was finished I picked up a book called Abandon by Pico Iyer...weaves in who the Sufis are within a love story. Good read.

Blessed Armistice Day to one and all. Too bad the war to end all wars has not happened. I think of the old veterans. Canada no longer has any WWI veterans alive. The last one died last year. We are losing on average 500 WWII veterans a week...sad to see them go...Blessings on them all.

Hoda said...

Thanks JUDIE for the Sandman...he certainly did a good job lost night!!! I had a very restful sleep.
How are the cats doing?

NatureNut said...

Good Evening Eagle Buds!! See that Lynne saw a REAL ONE. I can't wait! Gal who works part time w/us at the Park lives on a farm. She wrote me early last week that an eagle was in their front field and flew up carrying prey the vultures had been eating!
Been watching football and car race which might have been a boxing match! Bad boys! Didn't have to worry about the Redskins loosing, didn't play today!Ravens went wild and I have their sweatshirt out in hopes they are champs!
Wanda, so glad to hear GG is feeling good. All my pills don't make me feel like dancing! I'll have to talk to the doctor!LOL
Hope Dustin is OK!Prayers for him!
Prayers for Jo's appt. I hope it isn't postponed again!
Gonna try and see a repeat TV show I missed, so Prayers for Good Health for ALL and Pleasant Feather Dreams ;>)

JudyE said...

MARGIE I have to agree the google is awesome today
