Feather!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lolly said...

Thanks Steve for the new thread!! Will call the others over!

And, I claim my feather!!!! LOL

Lolly said...

Sharon, social media played an important roll in getting that surgery approved. Yea!!!! He is just so precious...loved the picture. Let us know the hour of his surgery so we can be in prayer.

32 degrees for several hours this morning. Now have plants to pull up and discard. Winter is here. Cozy though in my little greenhouse. Wish I had a wee bit bigger one!

Mema Jo said...

Missed it by 3

Mema Jo said...

Morning Lolly! Thanks Steve for the fresh new thread - hope the sun stays out to warm us up a bit.

Not sure of my plans for today - I guess I best get it in gear.
Going over to see morning comments.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

We will. He will be completely sedated for about 20 days while they do something to stimulate the growth of his esophagus. I am not sure exactly what the process will be but this is going to be a very long process. They will be in Boston for about 4 months.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good morning Mema Jo!!!! Much love and many (((((((HUGS))))))

NCSuzan said...

Hello! Everyone. I just wanted to take another opportunity to thank you all for the birthday wishes. I truly appreciated them all!

The panda naming ceremony is at 1pm est. today for the San Diego baby.

OODS!

magpie said...

Suzan...
I am gradually unearthing all my cards and stamps and things...hope to catch up with the snailmailing routine

Good Afternoon, and Hello More Eagle Pals...

magpie said...

Thanks for the new thread STEVE!
Thanks for the callover, LOLLY!

DanaMo said...

Bev-WOW 4 months in Boston? That is going to have a huge impact on their family isn't it. We prayed at noon for him!

Home for the day because Andrew texted me that Boomer would not eat lunch. Well that of course means there is something stuck in his belly. I hope it's in his stomach and not in the intestine again. Don't want to cut him open again. He needs a zipper!
He threw up a sock this morning so I thought we were good to go. He will be on 24 hour watch. Not taking him to the vet yet. Did talk to her on the phone. Searched the house and CANNOT find anything that he could have gotten into. Not even sure where he got the sock. He is so sly!!!! He is going to cause me to go broke. I'll never be able to retire.

Hoda said...

I have only read this thread and surmise that BABY ISAAC got hisoperation approved...YAY... he should have never been taken off of the approval list to begin with!!! Way to go SHARON and BEV and MATTIE what a terrific letter she wrote...

LOLLY got the feather...YAY.

Well I have always liked a group in town called Eco Society. They are a group of volunteers who work on the environment and sustainable resources. They are a young group of people. The average age is 25 and I wanted to support them. Today I went to their office and was very well received and I promised to volunteer three days a month with them over the winter. They right away put me to work on their Christmas Fair and also on compiling information for their web page. They are considerate and with energy and full of wonderful ideas and compassion and I am glad to work across the generations and learn from the young...

I had a good walk with a friend and then errands and a cup of tea and generally I feel very happy with our dreary day...several of us did Sun Salutaions, yoga poses, but the sun does not want to come out...I like my bright coat...the orange one...people see me from a long distance and they stop and talk. At night time it has reflectors and cars stop when I am trying to cross the road...it gets dark so much earlier now...by 4:30 PM...

I will go read back...THANKS JUDIE I SLEPT VERY WELL last night too!!! YAY Sandman!!!

Hoda said...

OUT DAMN SPOT

OUT DAMN SPOT

OUT DAMN SPOT


Good mantra to hold for anyone who is dealing with this disease. Thinking of JO and DANA'S father in particular.

I am confused. Is it GLO'S Mother who fell or her MIL...I think it is her mother but I keep seeing posts with MIL...does anyone know for sure? GLO would you clear the confusion for me please???

glo said...

It is my MIL. She is very much in the roll of Mom to me. In fact I am the only one left who calls her Mom as she lost both of her children "one being my husband" within 6 months of each other to that cancer thing :-(. I have always posted her both on here and Facebook as my MIL whom I do call Mom. Thanks for your prayers once again. Today seems to be much better than yesterday for her actually. It is nice to know she understands who is calling or visiting.

Sandi said...

Afternoon all!

Sharon, wonderful news about little Isaac!!

Dana, so sorry about Boomer's latest bout of dietary indiscretion! I hope everything "comes out" OK one way or the other, without the need for surgery!

Hoda, it's Glo's mother-in-law who is now in hospice - she refers to her as "Mom" (with the quotation marks) on FB.

Very little rain, no scary high tides, all is well in Bethany! But it sure is cold and damp out there! Insulation is in on one side of the workshop and Dennis got everything from the other side of the room moved over so he can paint the other half of the floor and do the rest of the insulation tomorrow. Progress! =)

JudyE said...

Home from work and I find a fresh new thread THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD STEVE
Hoping each of you had a great day in what ever you did
now to go read
TTFN BBIALW

JudyE said...

Fantastic new SHARON Its a shame that they had to jump through hoops to get it done


I laughed out loud when I read your weather app screw up ANDY

74° on my weather tray now

DANAMO wants to put a zipper in her dog that may not be a bad idea

JudyE said...

I emailed Beakspeak.com about the Fort Meyers eagle nest since they don't have it listed

Kay said...

Just a quick hello to catch up with this page only for now and to assure you all you and yours are in my heart and prayer ! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Will try to to more catching up tomorrow---this day just got away from me fast and I don't have that much to show for it ! ☺

Too early to tell if the Predinsone is going to bring on improvement. Fingers are crossed and prayer is appreciated !

{{{{{{{{{Eagle Buds}}}}}}}}}xxxooo

DanaMo said...

Hey Kay. Good luck with the prednisone. Usually works pretty good for aches and pains, but not so good for sleep.

Lolly said...

Hi all! Ended up working in the yard today. Pulling up plants that bit the dust with the freeze last night. A lot of plants survived, but it wont be long before they go too.

Just talked with Laurel. Joseph has been waking up with coughing and with breathing problems. He stayed home today and Joey took him to the doctor. Well, his problem has been identified as asthma. They have never called it that before. He is now on a nose spray he uses every day and he has an enhaler. Lovely...just lovely. :( Several times last winter playing basketball, he had a problem breathing. Laurel would just talk with him and calm him down. We always knew when he had a problem as he would put both hands on his head as that helped him breath. Doctor has always said croup, but obviously has changed his mind. Great doctor, so we do not fault him for not calling it sooner.

Lolly said...

Have you all heard anything on the news about Texas petitioning to leave the union? LOL Well, we are moving else where if that happens. So ridiculous! Anyway, went to take my flag down we put out for Veterans Day, but decided to leave it up!!! Some people, my brother included, are just so dumb, for lack of a better word!!!

Lori said...

LOLLY, Texas is not the only state trying to leave the Union, but I guess the biggest so it's getting all the attention because they've also gathered so many signatures, that it can't be ignored by the government! You're welcome in Maryland!!!


Hooray for Baby Isaac! Keep us posted. Glad it ended with the surgery approved!


HODA, you should post a pic of you in your bright orange coat! It's a good color for you! Great that you joined the group of youngsters - they're going to love having you around!!! ♥

Lolly said...

Have an appointment to get my crown on my tooth tomorrow. Called today as I had not heard from them. It has been two weeks and was told it would be one week. 5 and a half weeks since this all started. I called them and told them I did not want the same man sticking his hands in my mouth!!! Anyway, I now have an appointment with the head/owner Dentist! I also have a name of a new dentist. No longer going back there...and will let them know just that!!! Grrrrr!

Hoda said...

LOLLY LOLLY LOLLY!!! Don't let them know Before they put the crown in...you can write them a letter after you leave!!! LOL!!!

Could Joseph be alergic to milk? It gives me allergy symptoms... hence no dairy for me.

Thank you GLO and SANDI...I appreciate it and God Bless MOM/MIL

Thanks LORI I had it on here for a while, actually it is still my avatar...

magpie said...

Prayers and positive thoughts for Baby Isaac, and all the family with this event...
BRAVO on prevaling through the No's and getting the Yes's
(( Baby Isaac Hugs ))

magpie said...

Just got blogger-copped for the first time in ages.

Lolly, best wishes with the Tooth things, stand your Ground !

Hoda...what you pack into a day simply amazes me !!

Best wishes for Boomer...darn it,
hope he will be A-OK Pronto !!

Saw Jewels today at shift change this morning, what a welcome sight upon returning to the work place, she is beautiful as ever !

magpie said...

Lolly
sorry to read of Joseph's asthma...
hope having the cat isn't a problem...
and that all treatments will have positive outcomes...

magpie said...

I'm stuffed!
I had dinner and a fine one at that at the Soup Kitchen, but better yet, had fellowship with Wanda and Gena and many of their Church Family ♥
Thanks, Wanda and Gene !

Hoda said...

Mema Jo said...

I'm with you Kay - Prednisone is also on my plate - I need to clear up the wheezing before my procedure. Also have a Z-Pak for any infection.

I am about to sit down in front of the tube for our 3 terrific Tuesday shows.


Try to come back afterwards but just in case I love us ♥

JudyE said...

JO I know you watch NCIS tooo did you know that ABBY is 43 she doesn't look like it She is on the Insider right now and there is going to be two new shows spin off NCIS this year two new characters will be on it and they will have shows also

JudyE said...

MY MOM loved that show to and she loved ABBY and her quirky ways tooo

JudyE said...

almost time for Terrific Tuesday to start YEAH

Lolly said...

Just went to the web site of the new dentist I will go to next time. Very impressed! Wish I was going there tomorrow.

LOL Hoda! We shall see how the conversation develops between me and the head honcho of the dental clinic. I do feel this is the last time I will step in there. Sad, in that I do like the office staff and my hygienist, though she is rather simple and talks the whole time. They will be loosing two patients as I am sure Jack will change too. He has had problems there, too. When he had an infection they sent him to
Fort Worth.?????

Had a delicious dinner tonight. Jack "smoked" all day....brats, ribs, and brisket. Meal was fabulous with beans and potatoes and we have two more meals now in the freezer.

Margy, how neat that you got to dine with Wanda and Gene. Guess you had leftover Thanksgiving dinner. Jealous!

Lolly said...

No, do not think it is the pets or milk that Joseph is allergic. I think it must be seasonal pollen as it comes and goes. He has had the dogs and cats since he was born. He had no problem all summer and it has just recently flared up. Besides....I would not want to be the one to take the cats or dogs away from him. And, as for the milk....the boy drinks about a gallon a day. He loves milk. When he wants a snack he just might go pour a big glass of milk. They go through 4 gallons a week and Jacob is not much of a milk drinker.

Lolly said...

Awwww....Jack is going to build a fire. Cool!!!

Think I am going to put my nose in my kindle for as while.

paula eagleholic said...

Oh that dinner souns delish Margy

Glad Isaac got a yes!

Getting my do done tonight...I was way overdue!

Lolly said...

"for a while." Proof read, Lolly, proof read!!!! Geesh!!☺

Lolly said...

Hi Paula...you got your do done! Looking beautiful!!!!

Judie said...

Good late evening to all.

The sandperson has finished bumping around loading his sleepy dust. When he becomes quiet it usually means departure will be soon. Restful sleep for all.

magpie said...

Well, old Sandman is going to have to wait to visit until I finish my shower-bath! All the doors are locked !!

magpie said...

Glad to read that Joseph is not allergic to all the the things that are special to him,
Lolly...
thanks for the updates.
That's a lot of milk...
my brother Prairie-Dog John
goes through that much milk a week also !



magpie said...

Yup, leftover Thanksgiving fare, Lolly...and I brought home some
of Gene's Mexican corn, and some
desserts !

Glad you got your do done, Paula...
just in time for Birthday and Holiday fun !

magpie said...

Wanda and Gene both looked great...they ALWAYS look great!

off to the bubbles now....
ttfn xo

magpie said...

Oh, OS
I got to see the Clothes Closet in action...many "customers" leaving happily with bags filled, something for everyone !

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Everyone,
Just realized that my last post is stuck on the last thread. Better bring it over:

Good Morning, Everyone!

I fell asleep watching DWTS last night, so didn't make it back here.
Sorry about that!

JudyE, so sorry to hear that Amy's mom passed away! Prayers for Amy, for the whole family, and for you!
Yes, cancer definitely sucks!!!

Shar, thank GOD that Baby Isaac will be having surgery, on schedule!

I'm wondering if the Weather app
in my phone is correct--it's only 48 here right now, but it says it will get up to 82 here! Don't know quite how to dress, except in layers, for sure.

Count me in on the prayer circle for Jo! Out, damned spot!!

Well, gotta go feed Emma, and finish up my work for the doctor.
Will be back to check in later.
HAGD, everyone!
I ♥ us!!!

Well, I got all my work done and sent back to the doctor--Phew!

DanaMo, so sorry to hear that Boomer has managed to find something inappropriate to eat!! Sure hope he feels better soon, and doesn't have to go to the vet!
I know what you're going through, because Emma often manages to get hold of something that's not good for her, too. Can't tell you how often I have to pry something out of her mouth! She is something else--and if there is one microscopic thing anywhere that would be trouble for her, she'll find it! Then she runs like the wind so you can't catch her!
Sound familiar? Prayers for Boomer!

Margy, sounds like you had a wonderful dinner with Wanda & Gene!
Yum!!

Shar, that sure does sound like quite a process Baby Isaac will be going through! Amazing. Count me in on the prayer circle for him!

Glo, I'm so glad that your MIL is doing better today! Hope she surprises everyone and continues to improve. She sounds like quite a fighter!

Lolly, I hope you have a good visit with the dentist. Good ones are so hard to find! I know just how you feel. Hope that Joseph's doctor can get a handle on the asthma, and he will feel better soon! Sorry you had to pull up a bunch of your plants! Guess winter is really here in Texas!

Well, I need to go do something other than be on the computer, I guess. My eyes are refusing to focus correctly! Spent much of the day doing transcription. Think I'll go watch TV for a while.
Just in case I fall asleep there,
let me say goodnight now. Hope everyone has sweet dreams, and restful slumber! The porch light is on, and both security systems are enabled. God bless, and goodnight. I love all of you!
♥♥Remembering Lynn, and missing her!♥♥
♥♥Carolyn & Christie♥♥
I ♥ us!!!
OUT, DAMNED SPOT!!!

TV is over for me - I don't watch Vegas even though Hubby likes it. I always need to take a 10 o'clock pill and then I'll get on the computer to check out with everyone.

Early morning as I am riding to Kernan to see Michael. Hubby and son went today
Christine did add a Caring Bridge update.

Everyone sounds as though their day went well. Life is good! Prayers for everyone's troubles and worries.

Good Night
I Love Us ♥

Hoda said...

JUDYE I just got in and read your post and have not read back. Google has the Canada Arm. This is our contribution to space explorations. We built it and NASA used it to conduct all the outside repairs and experiments on the space shuttles. For years we always felt a great deal of pride whenever we saw it used with the NASA flights.SRMS Shuttle Manipulator System and it was launched in 2001. It is an advanced system to the original Canada Arm which was launched 31 years ago today.

JudyE said...

YEP HODA that is what it said it would be I downloaded Google Chrome and it has a tab for Doodles the different ones for different days and different countrys thanks for the feed back ours is just plain Google

Hoda said...

LOLLY I know what ribs are I do not know brats and am not sure of Briskets...

Hoda said...

Have a safe trip tomorrow JO.

JUDIE thanks for sending the Sandman out on his tours. How was your day...how were the wannabes? Any other meals with FBI guys? Do you know of an online publication called MOTHER JONES? They are having a field day with an FBI agent who was investigating a case, Petreaus, and ended up by sending an undressed picture of his chest to the complainant!!! I thought to myself JUDIE would not think this is professional...

Lynne2 said...

HI all! Lurking, posting pics on FB for your viewing pleasure. LOL!

HODA....look out at the sky in the north...you may see the Auroras!

Lynne2 said...

Guess who's radio station is only 2 days and a few hours from ALL CHRISTMAS MUSIC??!!

Lolly said...

Hoda...brats...bratwurst, a type of German sausage. Brisket is a cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of beef. All delicious!

Heading to the shower...it is time to think about heading to bed. My eyes are tired!

Jo, enjoy your visit with Michael!

Night all! Oh, and thanks Lori for extending a welcome to us if the need arises. lol I want to sign the petition to deport all who want to secede. Idiots!!!!

SED!!!!!♥

Lolly said...

Well, had to come back to say HI LYNNE!!!☺

Lynne2 said...

Hi and bye Lolly! I'm heading to bed too. WAY WAY past my bed time....

magpie said...

Headed for beddy bye here too...
Oh what a joy, Lynne2 - thanks for

Oh ISS, yes, well, that's great about the Canada Contribution...

Hoda said...

Goodnight.

PRAYERS♥

stronghunter said...

Hi,

Been busy running around today. Stopping by to say good night.

SED, everyone.

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING...
Soup Kitchen was a good one...left-over Thanksgiving food was so very good! We had 50+ guests and all were in a festive mood.
It was so good to have Margy with us, once again. We were able to eat and chat together, which is joy!

Sleepy here...
Good night and have sweet dreams, Blessings and love to you all♥

Lori said...


Good Morning everyone!


It's Wednesday! We've all made it to the hump! Tomorrow is my Friday as I have Friday off to go to check up on my parents, and pick up my pumpkin quilt!!! YAY!


Prayers for all in need, Baby Isaac, JO, Michael, Danamo's Dad, Sandi and Sandi's Mom, Thelma's BIL, and no pain for Kay!

Lori said...

So glad to see Lynne2 Check in...yes we are going all christmas music on Friday, but I have that day off...darn!

Sandi said...

Good Wednesday morning Lori and all my eagle friends!! Chilly this morning taking Bella out!!

Mom's doctor said her foot is healing fine; another week and the stitches come out and she can drive.

Work continues on our ground floor today - should take about a week I guess before everything is back in place.

Lolly, with almost 50% of the population not voting for Obama, obviously there are unhappy people. But I agree that this mentality of, "If things don't go my way, I'll take my bat and ball and go home" (or in this case, I'll secede from the US), is ridiculous!

Prayers continue for Michael, Joe, Dana's dad, Thelma's brother-in-law, Glo's Mom-in-law, and baby Isaac!

Make it a great day!

Lori said...

OOOPs, forgot to say prayers for Glo's "Mom." ♥

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle friends.

JudyE said...

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Good morning eagle buds! Wanda just reminded me of how much I love us over on FB. Thank so much for all the prayers for Isaac. This little boy is surely blessed but he has a long, long road in front of him. Here is the link for the surgery he is having. http://www.childrenshospital.org/clinicalservices/Site2807/mainpageS2807P29.html

I don't know how to do that fancy thing y'all do with links but you can copy and paste it to get there. Hope everyone is okay. Will check back in later!

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

There is just nothing like the power of eaglet momster prayer, is there? Just nothing like it!

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Isaac's surgery is scheduled to begin on Friday at 8 a.m.

Janet said...

good mid week morning ya'll.


So many things going on here today.

so glad the surgery was approved for the baby. i really dislike the insurance debacle that goes on......grrrrrr

and yes, HODA< actually, have any of you ever read the book TRANSPERSONAL MEDICINE? it is aquite a good book and it talks about visualizations, etc to assist with healing the body and the mind. and if that Shakespeare quote helps to remove it, if it means something to you absolutely!!!! and so I join you all in the chant: out, out damned spot!!!

and yes, there is a petition here in TN for TN to secede from the United States. Dumb. Just dumb. Whatever your political leanings, that is just dumb.

my 8 a.m. client canceled for today. his daughter is ill and he needs to take her to the dr. life happens in my motto, so these things do not upset me. i am going over to my daughter's to give her a massage. she has never asked directly, but being 8+ months preg, her back is hurting. she was asking about a pal of mine doing prenatals, and i said i can come over...so i will do that.

i just don't give prenatals as massage envy.

i finished painting my kitchen yesterday!!!!! :) i wanted it done prior to thanksgiving (btw, that is NEXT WEEK people!) and so it is. i do have a few touch ups to do. i would LOVE to get the living room done, but i think, given my schedule, that is likely not to happen prior to thanksgiving....but that's okay. i can live with it.

i have the paint so i will work on that after....

well i need to get busy. have a super day all. light, love and hugs to all, human and furry....

Janet said...

Just checked out the surgery. So then is it my understanding that he has already had the espogeal stretching? Or is that yet to be done? Then the actual reattachment?

Will be sending light and love to all involved...

and Thanks JUDYE: for posting the Mt. Washington pix....so beautiful Wouldn't it be awesome to see such in person.

Gotta scoot now...hugs to all!

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Mema Jo, so glad you know you have a plan. Out damn spot for sure!!! Love you all!!

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

He has not had anything yet. The process begins Friday. It will take 20 to 25 days or more and he will be sedated and intubated the whole time. That is the scariest part of all I believe. They will be in Boston around 4 months, give or take. The Riffe family is huge but we don't have anyone up there, which is a shame. Another niece has a college friend that lives there so at least there is one person to turn to in case of dire emergency, which we do not expect of course!

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Nicole will be there the whole time but Chuck has to come back home next Friday (after Thanksgiving) to work. I think several family members are planning to take turns trying to go up when possible, but she is gonna be alone alot of the time up there during this process. So she needs all the prayers we can send her, they all do. They have a little boy at home that will be 4 in December. He is staying in South Carolina with Nicole's mom and dad.

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

I wanted to let you all know, my email address is bevriffe@comcast.net. The old Frontier address is not valid any longer. The main one I use is the Comcast one.

glo said...

Good morning everyone. Yesterday was an up and downhill kind of day for my MIL. I was glad for the clear moments when she knew folks were talking to her and sharing their love. It did not end well though and she is failing. My guess is we have hours or perhaps days. I don't think we get to have Mom too much longer. Every time the phone rings now my stomach is in a knot. There is a newborn at the shelter again though and I will be off to take some photos. There is also another lady due between now and Thanksgiving who has a 2 yr old whom she has never had a photo of other than cell phone so I will do big brother today while I am there and Little sister when she arrives. I am Thankful for something like this to do today. HAGD everyone. Prayers continue for all.

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

I just talked to Nicole and Isaac has to have an esophagram this afternoon to assess the gap between his stomach and esophagus. Our prayer is that the gap has gotten smaller. The smaller the gap, the less the amount of stretching (or growing), and the sooner this process can be done. So, if you are the praying kind, the need today is that this gap is smaller. This is what we are hoping for today. We will take each day as it comes and pray.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Prayers for Isaac for sure! The information on the problem and the corrective procedure is very interesting. Prayers for the whole family during this 4 month period. Over the holidays and their son's 4th birthday. That stinks!

Yes, the idea of a petition to secede and to sign it is just plain stupid ignorance!! The US elected a president and now they want to throw a fit. Good grief! Let's work TOGETHER!!!!

Enough of that!!!

Really dreading my dental appointment today and will be so glad to get this whole thing behind me.

Wishing Jo a great visit with Michael today!

Heading to the grocery store...time to buy a turkey and start thinking about cooking!!! Yea!

Lolly said...

Something interesting...since we returned from out trip we have not had many birds in our yard. Where did they go? The bird feeder was not even empty when we returned and the suet had molded. Well this morning we had birds, the usual chikadees and titmouse, doves, and one cardinal.

Lolly said...

Also, Jack and I had a treat last night. Annie joined us when we went to bed. Our bed is very high and she finds it hard to get up there. Last night she went to the cedar chest a few feet away and jumped to our bed. She is not a jumper and this is what she used to do. So happy she felt good enough to take the leap!!! She walked back and forth between us purring loudly before settling down for a little while beside my head. This is what she used to do and we were thrilled. lol

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Very good Lolly!! Good luck with the dentist. I despise going there!!

Mema Jo said...

Good Afternoon - The visit with Michael was very good. He was in therapy and we got to sit with him. They were working on his reasoning skills. He did well - sometimes very laborious until he got the answer.
Then we were able to visit in his room for an hour before his lunch came. Looked pretty darn appetizing. He can now use a straw. One discouraging thing was that the feeding tube should have been taken out but the dr left before Michael came back to his room. Another week.:( We left at his lunch time as Jenny is due to work this afternoon hour.

Now my feet are going up!
Baby Issac is in my thoughts and prayers as are his family.

Kay said...

Oh, JO, I'm so glad I came in the door to see the news of your wonderful visit with Michael ! He's a fighter, a winner, a survivor---all traits passed on by his fine parents, I'm sure ! Are you having any problems with the Prednisone and or Zpac ? I've had both many times over the years for asthma/bronchial treatment. This time I have what DANAMO warned about--tough time sleeping last night--had the sweats and had to change to lighter p.j.'s and didn't even want a blanket on me in spite of the fact the thermostate is only set on 70. I'm going to get graphic--suffered through the agony of constipation this morning and my face is broken out with bright red eczema which I do have a med for. All tolerable if it brings down the back pain. I will, however, call the doctor or her nurse if the symptoms get worse.

My prayers are with SHAR's Isaac,LOLLIE's Joseph, JO and her Michael, DANAMO's dad, SANDI's mom and all others in need ! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

In spite of my maladies I felt it necessary to keep an appt. with my banker---time to take the required yearly withdrawal from my IRA. Always a big help at this time of year as all my big bills occur in Nov./Dec./Jan.---insurances, property taxes, auto plates.... So now, it's time to put my feet up just like JO ! zzzzzzz.......

stronghunter said...

Getting ready to head out to play bridge this evening.

Oh, Lolly, good grief. I just saw the news about a Texas succession from the union.

Will take time to read posts later. I need to take care of a few things around here, now.

stronghunter said...

Got to check on my required withdrawal, too, Kay. I should have gotten the check by now. This is my first time doing this.

JudyE said...

Home from work a little later Angie came up and we put a bunch of stuff on layaway at my store from Santa but the restriction Wmt have on layaway is STUPID noting under 10.00 DUMB and only certain departments tooo another DUMB thing but I get 10% off so it will have to do We bought the stuff right out that couldn't be put on layaway 170.00 would have been nice if we could have put on layaway got sheet set and matching comfortor plus games and stocking stuffers etc

Prayers of PEACE and HEALING and WELL BEING TO ALL ♥

JudyE said...

SHARON thanks for the link and I watched the video from one of the couple that found out their baby had it when she was pregnant Did they know then tooo or found out later

JudyE said...

4,500 year old tomb of a princes was unearthed today in Egypt today wow just on the news

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

JudyE, they too found out while Nicole was pregnant with Isaac. They originally thought he had more than that wrong with him but it wasn't the case. They were totally prepared for it when he was born and got treatment started right away. He has a MIC-KEY button for feeding and suction machine that they turn on and off as he has nowhere for the saliva to go. They also would put tastes of formula in his mouth so he would associated that with him getting full so when he can eat, he hopefully will know how.

Lolly said...

Sitting here and waiting for my mouth to return to normal so I can eat. Do not want to chew my lip!

Finally have the crown in. The head honcho dentist I liked. He was gentle, he explained things, and did not drop anything down my throat!!! Still plan to go to another dentist next time.

JudyE said...

Well once again I tried call June and she didn't answer her phone Machine picked up I left a message I call at least once a week and she isn't picking up and I just don't know what to do I think I will try to call when I know Joy is home and June will be at work Joy is her step daughter she lives with her and her two kids June GK I left message on Junes kids facebook page and haven't heard from any of them how she is doing I am so worried about her I am just besides my self what to do what to do Just had to get that out

JudyE said...

LOLLY so glad you got your crown now you have one one your head and in your mouth LOL Did you tell the main dentist your situation with the last A--hole and the issue you were having???

JudyE said...

dropping things in you throat they should be told that is unacceptable

glo said...

Getting ready to shower and stretch out on the sofa and try to relax some. "Mom" as my MIL has had a pretty good day overall. I don't know if this is one of those uphills before the downhill once again or not. I believe in miracles . Having said that here is my updated facebook status I wanted to bring over here as well. "My heart feels a little lighter tonight. "Mom" sounds stronger and less confused. She has actually had a good day. Even has enjoyed a little chocolate ensure and a few bites of soup. It was a cherished minute or so to hear her like this. God is good all the time.

Hoda said...

JUDYE Thank you for the news on the discovery of the tomb. With the Extreme Moslems in Egypt threatening to blow up the pyramids and the Sphinx and the antiqueties in the Egyptian Museum I wished they would not unearth any thing else. The desert is full of it and it is best to leave them burried and left in peace. RIP except if you are an Egyptian Mummy in which case you threaten the Moslems when you are dug up!!! They do not RIP really!!!

Sorry I am upset today with all the news that is coming out of there and I tried to text, to message to email and to phone my sister and all the lines are blocked. I did not get through!!!

Withdrawing the Egyptian Ambassador from Israel is not a good move

Enough already...moving right along!!!

Hoda said...

LOLLY glad it was a better experience with the dentist today and that you have your crown...

JO very glad that your trip to see MICHAEL was a success.

SHIRLEY how is the construction inside the house going...today I only saw the spilt noodles??!!

SANDI it is all good and you are a caring and loving human being...always extending a hand.

Mema Jo said...

Great news about Annie - Lolly I am so happy she is showing off for you and Jack.

Kay - Do let the dr know of all your systems - I always expect sleeplessness but didn't have it happen this time. ??

Glo - I hope Mom's days will be pleasant and cheerful during these days. I know what you mean about the ups and downs - I think of Grandma Riffe doing the same thing.

Mema Jo said...

Hoda, I hear your opinions of Egypt and I know how much you are concerned. I pray you can contact your family soon.

Mema Jo said...

Good night for today. It has been busy and very happy for this day.

Prayers for all in need -
I Love Us ♥

Thank you for all your support for Michael.

Prayers for you Baby Isaac ♥

Lolly said...

Jack and I have been enjoying a fire, he is shelling pecans, and we watched Masterpiece theatre. I do believe that tonight he has finished filling the first gallon freezer bag of shelled pecans. He says they are filled out great. Wahoooop!

Was finally able to eat and advil came to the rescue once again to the ache. Hoping for a better tomorrow.

We are going to Denton as Jacob has a music program at school.

Night all! SED!!

HODA (((HUGS))) Sounds like you could use hugs tonight!♥

Hoda said...

Work on the African Dinner this coming Sunday is going really well and we are sold out!!! Very happy with this news!!!
Two lists of groceries were made up and one was already delivered no problems and the second one comes Sunday to the United Church...so we are doing well. I just finished sending out last minute organizational emails and I think we are good to go!!!

stronghunter said...

Time to say good night from Fredericksburg. SED, everyone.

Hoda said...

Thanks Jo...it will all turn out alright I am sure...Faith Hope and Trust...I live by that!!!

Hoda said...

Thanks LOLLY!!! I had an emotional reaction and I should know better...FAITH HOPE TRUST...it is all good.

Hoda said...

Let us know about the music program tomorrow and I am glad you were able to eat LOLLY

Hoda said...

Good night
PRAYERS♥

Costume Lady said...

AN AFRICAN dinner...Hoda, sounds very interesting. Will you tell us of some of the dishes when you have time? Lovely idea!

Our last truck delivery from the Food Bank truck, had 5 large boxes of already prepared, frozen foods from the Olive Garden. A lot of soups (Minestrone, Cream of Mushroom,etc) Marinara Sauce, Chicken Tenders & Fingers, etc., etc. A wonderful assortment for many meals to come! This was my favorite delivery. We also had 300 pounds of Bakery items, 300# Produce and 300# of Dairy.
We'll work on the next menu when Capt. Gene gets back from his hunting trip.

Yawning non-stop here:)
Good night, sweet dreams...love and prayers for all♥

Lori said...

Good Morning everyone!


GLO, sorry to hear about your MIL. I think it is so cool of you to take pictures for people at the shelter. What a giving heart you have!


LOLLY, have fun at the music program today. Take lots of pictures! Glad the Crown affair is over for you!


KAY, sorry the pred is giving you problems. I would be sweating with the thermostat at 70 at night time...turn mine down to 65. Can't sleep when you feel hot! I hope you're feeling tons better today.


Today it's me with the stomach problems...didn't feel well yesterday and this morning it's still barfy! And, today is my Friday!


HODA, glad the plans for the African Dinner are going so well. How is your yoga going these days?


JUDYE, thanks for the email on the eagle cakes! They are soooo cute! How on earth did you find them?


Prayers for JO, baby Isaac, Michael, KAY, DanaMo's Dad, GLO's MIL, Thelma's BIL and SANDI's Mom.


Have a fabulous day everyone!!!

Sandi said...

Good Thursday morning Lori and all my eagle friends!

Lori, sorry to hear you are feeling puny these last few days - hope things right themselves quickly so you can enjoy your 3-day weekend!

Dana, did you find the missing sock and how is Boomer today?

Glo, glad you had a good day with your mom-in-law!

Hoda, prayers for your family in Egypt and for your peace of mind. I'm glad my son and daughter-in-law are leaving that part of the world soon, even though Tanzania is a distance away from Egypt and there is no upheaval there.

Prayers for Michael, Jo, Thelma's brother-in-law, Dana's dad, Glo's "Mom", and Isaac and his family!

Make it a great day all!

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Good morning everyone! Again, thank you all so much for the prayers and well wishes. Today Isaac will be admitted and they will insert a central line for IV access. Tomorrow is the surgery and it will take 8 hours at least. Then comes the long, horrible month or so of him being intubated and sedated while they stretch the esophagus and stomach closer together. They told Nicole that it is very common during this time for children to develop broken bones, I guess something about the process makes them very brittle. They will do physical therapy on him every day to keep his muscles from atrophying. This all is just amazing to me. I know in the end it will be worth it for him to have a normal life but Lord have mercy, I just don't know how she is going to do this up there my herself. Chuck will have to come home Black Friday and go back to work. Family members are going to try to take turns going up there as much as possible, but for the most part, Nicole is going to be alone during this time. I cannot imagine.

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Nicole is working on a Caring Bridge account but she didn't want to spend too much time working on it while Isaac is still awake. They are spending every moment they can cherishing him. She will work on it and I will let you know about it when she is ready. This is all a huge step for her and Chuck as they are very private people and having to reach out like this and have their life displayed is hard for them but they know it is necessary and that people love them and want to be part of this with them. They are coming around gradually.

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

Janet said...

good morning to all....

had a couple of cancellations on my books the last couple of days, which left me more time to work around my house. i sure took advantage of it. painted the ktichen....cleaned stuff out of my storage area....busy busy busy.

JUDYE: sorry about june. its sounds as if she may be in a deep and serious depression. unfortunately, there isn't much you can do other than to continue to be there for her when she is ready. i hope she is receiving help.... depression is an awful feeling. i am holding you and her in my heart, sis.

HODA: i am hoping that you are able to contact your family soon. i cannot imagine having my loved ones in another country...what little bit i have seen in books/tv/etc of Egypt...it is such a fascinating place .... when I was in Virginia I had the opportunity to do some belly dancing and a few of the parties where we danced were Middle Eastern family parties, birthday and the like. They were kind, warm and inviting. I loved being around them. I miss that.

But I cannot imagine having my family so far away and with political issues, not being able to contact them. ((((HUGS)))) my friend. You are right..faith, hope, love.....

Another chilly morning here in Nashville, frosty and 28 degrees! :)

I am thinking of each of you, Sandi, MemaJo & Michael, DanaMo....Lolly....et al..(sorry if i forgot to name you or your furbaby....but you are with me in my heart) ..holding you close in my heart, my thoughts and sending light and love to each of you. (((HUGS))))

Thank you's to Sissy and Sharon on all the updates on what's going on....

glo said...

Good morning. The night was quiet. Well except for Dex who was restless. I know he senses the week has been different. We will nap again today hopefully. Prayers for little Isaac. He has along road and his family an even longer one. MeMa Jo says her day will be very busy. Hmmm not sure what she will be up to. I might go eagle hunting for a short while. I think a walk at the Marina will do us both good. Baby photos are pretty cute. So young. Prayers for this little guys Mom and him if you could and then there is the 2 yr old. A little red head need I say more :-). His Mom is do to give birth to his baby sister any day now. She has not even ever had a photo of the 2 yr old done before. He was indeed intrigued by the camera. We did have to tickle him to get a smile. You know what that did with the energy and still level. LOL. She will have a few to choose form but he was a challenge. Have a good day everyone. Prayers for all.

Lori said...

GLO, hope you post a few of those pics!

glo said...

Lori. I can't without a release and being a shelter atleast for one of them in real danger I most likely will not be able to. Maybe a foot or a hand. I may ask for a release next week for the newborn. His situation isn't as dangerous as it is just needing a new start in life that includes a home and a job for Mom in a few weeks.

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Nicole posted this on FB this morning.

I am not one that usually puts a lot of personal feelings and such on facebook but I feel the need to reach out this morning for prayer. We are having a very difficult time at the thought of Isaac being admitted to the hospital and not being his primary care givers for the duration of this procedure. This is undoubtedly the toughest thing I've ever had to do. Please say a special prayer for us to have " peace that surpasseth all understanding" as we feel like we are preparing to say goodbye to sweet baby Isaac for 4-6weeks. He will be in a medically induced coma for some time but at least we know he won't be in pain. Love to you all this morning...

magpie said...

Sharon...
You all my prayers....with that
thought you give me for
the focus...
and for the very best outcomes for precious little Isaac....

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

LORI Yoga is going very well. There is a terrific three weekend workshop coming up the end of November dealing with Yoga and The Goddesses: Kali, Lakshemi and Saraswati. I am signed up and then over Christmas there is Yoga by Donation where we fund raise for three organizations The Women Shelter in Nelson,The Pura VIda Foundation in Nepal and The Eco Society in Nelson. Three days for two hours each 24,25,26 December.

Hoda said...

Thank you for your love and support. I much appreciate it.

Prayers for ISAAC and his family Bev this morning and always. It is indeed tough for his mother. Does she know about Caring Bridge? Maybe like has already been suggested she could set up a page and that will give her a place to post. She said she is not one to post personal things on FB.

Hoda said...

Read your email Bev in regards Caring Bridge. Brave young mother.

Lolly said...

Good morning!

MARGY, you had me sitting here laughing out loud. "Out barfy out!" You are too much!!!

LORI, surely that made you feel better! I do hope that feeling goes away fast...not fun!

Bev, my heart is breaking for Nicole and Chuck. You know that is quite devastating to watch all of this being done to your baby. Prayers for the whole family.

HODA, so glad your were finally in touch with your sister.

Lolly said...

Need to get my day in gear and up and running! Heading to Denton early afternoon. Need to get to the grocery store to get some porkchops for dinner.

Have a great day!!

Hoda said...

Safe drive LOLLY. See you when you come back...Enjoy the recital...

Mema Jo said...

JudyE said...

Home from the frod company No biggie They didn't do anything at all when I told them what it was doing the assured me it was my ABS kickin in doesn't do it at normal breaking only when some ares pull out and you have to hit breaks that is when I notice it stuttering or sort so I feel better and I waited for the bugger eagle to come up out of the nest for a half a hour and gave up I though maybe she was just turning the eggs and be back up topside but no such luck but I did manage to get one picture before then I went to Freedom Park and got a pic and a short video on the eagle in the nest there and saw a osprey in the cell phone tower just a block from it but on my return run back home no osprety to take a picture of so home I am

JudyE said...

misspelling big time OH well I think you know is was osprey LOL

Kay said...

Good Afternoon, just checking in for prayer list update and for the usual natural high it gives me to read all about the lives of my dear Eagle Buds ! It helps me to put my mental energy to work on the needs and joys of others.

Thanks for your thoughts re:my minor maladies ! Got a good nights sleep and other symptoms abating nicely. Am on the Prednisone count down now, so lower dosage every couple of days and I'm sure that helps. No sign of it's lessening the spinal/hip/leg pains yet. :(

Love and prayers dear friends ! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

See you all in the evening.

Costume Lady said...

HELLO ALL...
Home early from GG's. She played out early and told me to go home and take a nap;)
I checked her fridge to see what she had eaten and what she had leftover. I found a dish of Yellow Grits, which Gene had made for her last week (thought she had eaten them all and wondered where she had been keeping them??) Anyway, I threw them in the garbage, knowing they wouldn't be edible after all this time. As I was cooking oatmeal for her breakfast, she told me she had made some of the Grits for breakfast and ate them with Salsa on top, saying it was delicious...told me to get some and see how good they were!! UH, OH, I threw away her fresh grits. Well, fortunately, I had taken her garbage out and had a fresh bag in her can...took them out of garbage and put them in a dish and back in the fridge while she had left the room;) She never cooks anymore, but these were cooked to perfection. The Lord made me put a clean garbage bag in the can, but WHY did He let me throw them away?? I really need to have a one on one talk with Him!
I think I just gave TMI:)

Hard to cook for just me, and I usually have Micro Dinners when Gene goes to camp, but haven't had a chance to go to Weis for them. Maybe some Progresso soup and crackers...comfort food.
Enjoy your suppers...BBL

OH, HODA...your African Dinner sounds very interesting. You are blessed to be able to keep up with all your activities and Yoga, to boot!

JudyE said...

I discovered I bouth smoked brats but boy are they goooooood

JudyE said...

bought not bouth

JudyE said...

Mema Jo said...

Good Evening Everyone - getting ready for our dinner for two here. Wanda, GG is remarkable! and so are you and Gene!

My day went very smoothly - Hubby and I left about 45 min ahead of scheduled CT
thinking that the other 2 tests were on a walk-in basis. Well it turned out that after I registered they sent me early to CT and then took me right over to have blood work at their lab and then over to get the EKG. All in the same building within a few steps of each other. Smooth and the staff were so very gracious and kind. I was out of there by 2:00. Good day cause I came home after stopping at Joanne's for some sewing thread and put my feet up for 2 hours! I was so comfy in my recliner and I had gotten up earlier then my regular time. So
that was my day........ Now I am free until next WED the 21st when I will get the Bronchoscopy to place the gold pins (markers) around the tumor. So far so good! BBL

JudyE said...

I heard from Mary at Walker Ford I had asked a few questions wanting to know how far they got in the idea of getting a cam on the cell phone towers I asked if they owned the tower, etc, and would the cam interfere with the cell phone towers this is her answer So they look to be serious in it

Tracy forwarded your email to me.

I have contacted the people who lease the tower from us I got no where. We own the tower. Yesterday I reached out to a gal from the game and wildlife we talked about a webcam. She was going to look into it and try to get me intouch with the folks who could help us with this.

I haven’t heard anything yet.

You can email me or call me if you any info you can add.
-----------------------------------
then I got a second email with this would it be wrong of me to ask for the pictures ???

I also have some really great pics of the the parents and the babies when they were learning how to fly.

Linda said...

H-E-L-L-O--- EVERYBODY!!!

I am so sorry I have been away for so long without explanation!!!

It's been a rough few weeks with Dennis and his surgical complications - and - my horrible headaches!!! Ugh!

Dennis' stent was finally removed yesterday! Hallelujah!! And I found out that I have a deep sinus infection that has been causing symptoms that I didn't put together. I thought I had a toothache and on the same side had the feeling of water in my ear!! An x-ray at the dentist office actually showed the infection. Strange. I am sure that is what contributed to the headaches as well.

They are all long stories, but we are on the mend..........hopefully!!

Dennis is still in quite a bit of pain, but we hope it will only last a day or so.

I have tried to catch up here and there on what is going on, but never had the energy to post.

I have remembered so many of you in my prayers, though. DANAMO's Dad, SANDI's Mom, JO, GLO's MIL, BABY ISAAC, LORI's tummy, KAY's pain, MARGI's hands, BOOMER's indigestion problems, LOLLY's Joseph's asthma problems, and MICHAEL!

I have watched the video of MICHAEL and the girls a few times and all I can say is WOW!! I was so surprised to see him so alert, expressive, happy and energetic! Praying that he gets the help and care he needs as he transitions out of the hospital very soon.

Please know I do care and love you all. It's just been a rough month for us..........and we are not there yet. We have lots of catching up to do!

Thank you for your posts, emails and for the phone call, MARGY ♥.

xoxo

Linda said...

And..... I will try not to be such a stranger!!

It's kind of you to worry.

JudyE said...

LINDA Yeah you checked in and soooo sorry about all your woes and so happy you figured out what the headaches were from sinus Everyone will be so happy you popped in and we will keep you in our hearts and thoughts as always May the days ahead of you get better one by one and Dennis will soon heal Healing thoughts to the both of you

JudyE said...

I just sent a letter to Mary so lets hope we get something going I told her to get in contact with Audubon they were the last sponsor for the camera here in Fl and they may be able to help I also gave her Steve facebook page He said he would try to help before so crossing fingers and waiting with baited breath for a good outcome for next year And I did ask her if she would be so kind to share her pictures couldn't hurt she did mention them

Mema Jo said...

Great to see you, Linda and happy to know that you and Dennis are on the mend

I am leaving for a while to go into the living room. I will be BBL before signing off.

I love us ♥

JudyE said...

Just emailed Steve the email she sent me and his response was Good Job just wanted him to know that I did refer her to him So looks like the ball is in play ok gonna go watch the boob tube since everyone is AWOL .

HI JO I am joining you in the living room LOL just different states LOL

glo said...

Good to see Linda's and MeMa Jo's info. Guess over all it has been a relatively good day for our Blog. Tomorrow 8 am your time is Baby Isaacs surgery if I remember correctly. Prayers continue for all needs. my MIL has had the quietest as in uneventful day she has had all week. I will call my niece after 9 pm for the specifics but am trusting no news is good news. We have all burned lots of cell phone minutes this week.

Judie said...

WANDA, I MADE YOU THROW THE GRITS INTO THE TRASH SO YOU COULD BE THANKFUL FOR THE CLEAN TRASH CONTAINER. I HAVE MY REASONS.

Costume Lady said...

LOL, Judie...I'll take your word for it;)

Judie said...

Jo, glad you had an easy day of prep for the procedure.

The pressure is on with 100 wannabe assignments to read and grade plus the police exams and their assignments to read and grade. Going to be a very long week ahead.

The sandperson is bumping around again loading up sleepy dust. Grumbling about having to go out in the cold. Yep, he's on his way. Restful sleep everyone.

paula eagleholic said...

Jo, are you having your cyber knife done in Frederick?

NatureNut said...

Good Evening Eagle Buds! Don't think I've been on for a couple, but wanted to write from the Park TU about a group that came for a tour. They were all environmentalists~~~international scientists. One was from Germany, a couple from Netherlands, etc. They were slated to start w/boat tour, but weather so bad, Greg K rearranged the schedule. They went in bus on the Driving Tour thru the State Park next door, came back for late lunch and then did boat tour in the SUN!!!!(I whispered to the 3 leaders before Greg came over to make sure he told them about eagle nest!! ☺)
Leaving Park for day, with the first 2 taps on the brake while going around some curves, got that terrible metal scraping noise!AARRGGHH Decided to go as far as eagle nest, park and phone home to ace mechanic.Cell phone dead!!!Drove back to office and now clunking, scraping noises constantly while driving!!Sounded like the local freight train to me. Mechanic decided to drive it home w/me following closely behind in his car.I don't think I would have thought of this, but in case of bad brakes (they're 2 months old!)he hardly used the pedal, but shifted down into low to help stop and it's automatic! He worked on it Wed. AM, but I was still chicken and took his car to work!Think mine had a loose caliper on one front wheel and link broke on other side that holds up torsion bar.That was most of the scraping noise.Glad it fell apart where it did, not on a highway!Also at Park our big oval placgue w/blue heron fell off the Vis. Ctr. sign!!! I'm blaming both on hurricane Sandy!

Thanks for listening to the trivia☺
What's important here is prayers and best wishes for baby Isaac and family with his surgery. Sounds difficult to have him so sedated.
Good to hear from Linda!!Hope you both feel lots better and stress may also play a factor in your headaches, too. Hope all the problems will be gone ASAP.
Kay, glad you can tolerate the pred.I hope all your pain LEAVES. No one deserves any of that, especially you!
Lori, sorry to hear of "bad belly" and you still get to work! Guess the show must go on!!
Dear Mema Jo, I'm in awe of your serenity. I know you should be confidant that they will Out, Out that Damn Spot! That is our prayer.

Loretta:
I had about the very same thing happen a few years ago...on Palm Sunday Saturday -
a block from my apartment!
had to miss services, but my friendly "family" mechanics (they ahve sort of adopted me and always ring me up during hunting season to come get some Venison!)
got things all fixed up...they know my Blazer inside and out...!
Glad YOU were in friendly territory when it happened also

magpie said...

JO - As it is so well-deserved, that things went so smoooooothly today for you!

Hoda, so happy you have had contact with your sister....

Sandi: my nephew (one of many nephews) just spent a week in Tanzania with his job...comes home Friday.....

Glo, I hope you and DEX did get that walk at the Marina today to do some Eagle Hunting !!

Lolly said...

We are home. Great evening! Picked Jacob up at school, did his practice spelling test with him, then prepared dinner. Then up from the table to go to the choir program. I posted a picture of Jacob on fb. You can really see what a big boy he is. We are on fast track to 6'6" or taller!!! Bless his heart...he is still just a little boy!

Lolly said...

Wanda, Wanda, Wanda! roflmbo Wish I could have seen your face when
GG told you about the grits. Too funny!

LINDA, great to see you on here. I do hope you are both on the road to recovery now. We have been missing you!

magpie said...

Hi Lolly!
Sounds like a fun day.
Always enjoy hearing about your family events...

Okay now, maybe Judie can do some things like she did for Wanda...like the clean garbage bag trick! I could use a little magic like that !

Good Luck and Best Wishes on All Things Academic in the weeks to come, Judie !!

I have the front door open a bit in case the Tundra Swans choose to do some night flying !
Megan saw another flock today, oh joy !!!

magpie said...

My New York Naturalist Pal...who works at Roger Tory Peterson Institute in New York...has pretty much retired! Working one day a week there, so my news from his part of the world will slow down, but he had told me a week or so ago...that the Tundra Swans were headed this way....
He was right !

magpie said...

Thinking of Baby Isaac and his dear parents tonight....
and saying some prayers for them also
and for all the family....

magpie said...

Y'all watch for the SPLIT - it's not too far away, thanks to my driving up the posts here in the last 20 minutes...

♥ Paula - procedure will be at Frederick
Cyber Knife has been there for quite a while.


♥♥ Very disturbing international news from the Gaza Strip and Egypt with rockets at Israel. Hoda warned that when the Egyptian Ambassador was brought home something was going to happen. I really don't have all the facts but TV is reporting live.

Costume Lady said...

HODA is 'spot on' with the goings on in Egypt...wonder if she ever thought about going into politics?
Yes, Jo, it is disturbing...so, so tired of killings and bombings, when will it all end?

MARGY, I'll let you know when we have a meal with the Olive Garden goodies...maybe you can join us!

There has been a hoot owl outside my window, calling for nearly an hour...wonder what that is suppose to mean. Good Luck, I hope:)

JudyE said...

Angie was telling me that at Jordyn school there is a owl building a nest I will see it tomorrow She said not to take a picture that it might scare it off I told her if all the kids on the playground haven't scared it I surely wouldn't scare it off LOL

Boy was GA good tonight Watching the news now and then will hit the sack
