Good afternoon and thank you Steve for the new thread. Hope you and the family have a nice weekend.

Judie said...

Been really busy with grading and other related headache stuff today.

Just checked on Phoebe and one of her babes fledged, a second egg was non-viable, and an orphaned egg with a pip was put in the nest and she's just incubating away.

This makes me really wonder where Jim is as he usually keeps up with Phoebe. Can't help but have some concern.

Going to see some of my wannabe adults play water polo tonight. Will try to catch up later.

Hope everyone is doing as well as possible.

Sandi said...

Thanks Steve for the new thread for the weekend! Thanks Judie for the call over!

Judie, enjoy your spring break this upcoming week!

Judy, glad to hear you're feeling more like yourself!

stronghunter said...

Enjoy your feather, Judie.

Would like to find out about Jim, too. Hope all is well with him.

stronghunter said...

Got to go let Luna in and check on Hunter. BBL.

JudyE said...

Thanks for the new thread STEVE and the call over JUDIE and congrats on the feather you just got

JudyE said...

Comet Panstarrs will be best seen at our west coast beaches. However, the comet will sit in the glow of dusk and will set around 40 to 45 minutes after sunset. By March 12, the comet will be considerably higher in the sky and will set around 75 minutes after sun. What’s more, the comet will be next to the waxing crescent moon on the North American evening of March 12. this is from my weather man PAUL FB page you all remember PAUL don't ya

JudyE said...

wow the rabbit or whatever was there now has been moved I didn't like looking at it I think it is being feed now to the chicks Its probably under her as she is feeding them

magpie said...

oh my goodness
that object in the BWE nest
is very colorful...

saw some comments on it
on the old thread
but saw it with my own eyes first


Food For Everyone

magpie said...

Why go out for Hamburger when you
can have Steak at home...

I think that expression
was something Paul Newman might have said

magpie said...

Congratulations to Judie on
the announcement of the New Thread
and the acquisition of the
Feather...

And Thanks Steve, for giving us
a jump on our Friday !!!

magpie said...

JudyE said...

BELLE IS GETTING UP EATING SOME NESTOVERS

JudyE said...



REALY CAN HEAR HER TEAR IN TO THE FOOD

glo said...

Up from a nice nap. Dex and I did OK on our ride today. I did find a park where he could walk some without having to plow through inches upon inches of snow LOL Its going to rain and get warmer this weekend so that will soon be gone and will write about mud. Stopped by the Vet and left Dex in the car. I had to pick up his prescription and Emily is back pert time. It was to see her smile peak around the corner as I was paying the receptionist for Dex's meds. I got to give her a nice hug. It's been a good day.

Sandi said...

I hadn't even noticed there was food in our nest, but Belle is chowing down on something left over.

JudyE said...

IS THAT A TURTLE SHELL????? OVER TO THE LEFT INBETWEEN THE TWO BRANCES BUT CLOSER TO THE ON ON THE BOTTOM

JudyE said...

WING STRETCH AND POOF

JudyE said...

AND SHEP ARRIVES

Sandi said...

Belle just looked up into the tree than took off. She must know Shep is there. And in he comes! perfect switch!

JudyE said...

WOW THEY REALLY HAVE THE FLUGG BUILT UP AROUND THE CUP FLUFFY

Kay said...

Good Afternoon Eagle Buds !

Wahoo, JUDIE has a feather !

Thanks to STEVE for keeping us supplied with new threads !

LORI, so happy to hear your Dad was able to drive to the barbershop ! He had to be very pleased with that progress ! Also happy to hear about the math tutor.

OOOHhhhh, so sorry to hear about all the "bugs" causing problems for so many Momster's and their kin. Glad you're feeling much better, Glo and JUDYE ! I've never been to a Hooter's and your description doesn't whet my appetite !!!

The kids will bring Chinese take out here tonight. Yay ! After a week of teaching Julie doesn't feel like cooking on Friday nights. I love it when they include me in their plans.

And, speaking of teachers, I have a family full of them and do so appreciate all the supportive words expressed here for those in that profession ! God bless em' all !

Any word from WANDA ? Is there a family fun time at GG's tonight ?

Love and prayers for all Momsters, Dadsters (I've been missing RED and JIM lately), Kidsters and Petsters !

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Kay said...

Ahhh, love to see those switches ! Shep has really come into his own with us, hasn't he ? Belle has whipped him into shape beautifully !

JudyE said...

Watching Shep mess the fluggs makes me smile and chuckle out loud he is one silly boy such a entertaining eagle

JudyE said...

Shep is building a wall in front of him piling up the flugg big time
Its a wonder it doesn't blow away with the winds must be all intwined I guess

JudyE said...



This was on my Fox news
baby being feed and the dog is right there sitting next to the baby and just watch Gross but sort of funny

Bulldog kisses or wants babyfood

JudyE said...

OK now I got to figure out what I want to go get to eat I think Boston Market sounds good its been a looong time BBIALW

Judie said...

Going to go sit pool side in a few.

So very windy at the nest and glad all that flugg was brought in.

Y'all have fun tonight.

magpie said...

Mother or Father Blackwater has covered up the mammal, partially, with her beauteous tail

Happy Friday...
Enjoy that Chinese Take-out or is it Bring-In, Kay ☺

xo ttfn chores to attend to

I am white-knucling it on Sharon's behalf, though I am sure! that Mattie is a super driver !

♥ ((Hugs, All )) ♥

magpie said...

white-knuckling I meant to type

Judie said...

Oh, maybe I should take my feather and make the opposition sneeze themselves right out of the pool. (:

magpie said...

Thanks for the additional Comet report, JudyE...I fully expect to be watching for it !

magpie said...

Forget what I typed about the
covered Mammal, it is no longer a true statement

magpie said...

don't sit in the Splash section, Judie ☺

magpie said...

Can see the tail of the mammal at BWE...maybe it is muskrat
or a large mole.

WVJerry said...

Good evening everyone. Meant to echo the sentiments everyone had for Lori on her LPN test. I'm sure you will do fine. Don't watch the cam much this time of day but you can see pretty good considering it's dark out. Hoping the warmer weather is coming and we can out fishing some. Got some work to do around the house that's been piling up over the winter. I'm glad my boss gives me Monday off...with the store being closed on Sundays...it makes it nice. But if it's busy which it has been until lately , I am ususally too tired on Sunday and just rest. Mondays we like to go "thrifting" when the budget allows it and then work starts again on Tuesday and things aren't done. You all get the picture. Enough about me. I'm looking forward to the eggs hatching...missed most of the process last year. One thing that has surpised me(and somewhat embarrassed to admit it)is the male eagle taking a part in the egg care. Hope you all can forgive me...must have been a narrow "male" way of thinking. Enjoy your weekends and take care all.

Hoda said...

WOW WOW WOW I have not read back but my day was TERRIFIC!!!

I had an awesome fast ski in the morning and I did very well then went up to the Down Ski Chalet for an excellent lunch. It is magical up there. It was not planned. The question came up what are we going to do that is special for International Women's Day...We went into an amazing drive up a steep mountain road and there we were at the chalet.
Food was very good the conversation too and oh how much we laughed.

We drove down and decided to ski the Railroad Track across from Cottonwood Lake and so we took the dog with us as Darby is not allowed on Nordic ski club trails...she had an awesome time and not once did she step on the skis and she was running and having a wonderful time with us gliding on the snow and she playing with sticks.

Just came back in...saw a wolverine and deer tracks and a beaver dam...

I am so incredibly happy.PRAISES PRAISES PRAISES for this Beautiful Creation that is our Planet.

Hoda said...

Oh yes WV JERRY The male eagle/ Shep is not only a good provider but he also incubates very well and he feeds the young when they are hatched. He proved himself last year.
I like how you talk of your life. It is a good life. How is your MIL?

Hoda said...

JUDYE it was DANA who said she posted a pictureto the album and a great picture at that as I saw it on FB. It is of the two eagles covering the eggs during the snow storm...amazing shot rather and I hope it is in the right album soon. It is worth keeping. Maybe you could message her and bring it to her attention?

LORI so happy your DAD drove today and no issues and that he was doing something different besides seeing the doctor.

Oh my I am starved!!! You would think I did not have any lunch at all...I will go try some hot tea first...I need to keep moving so my legs do not stiffen up!!!

Janet said...

Good evening all. It was a good day. JUDYE: so glad you are feeling better.

I have to say I am still coughing and tire very easily. Good part, my appetite is minimal. If I can keep it this way, I might drop a pound or two. lol.

Went and got my ears lowered. I needed a hair cut so badly. I have a really good stylist and she takes great care of me! :)

Mexican food for dinner.....and now I'm tired yet again. I suspect I shall have more face time with my pillow in a bit!

:)

WV sUSAn said...

Hoda, what a WONDERFUL day! I'm so happy you could celebrate :-)

WVJerry, you are a breath of fresh air, my friend. Thank you for sharing.

Lynne2 said...

evening all!

Down 5 pounds this week! Will not have that much loss next week I'm sure but I've been good!

I can't believe we will have BOBBLE HEADS by this time nest week!!

Lynne2 said...

OH Jerry....too funny! No worries, we have all learned along the way on here!

Hope your mother in law is well!

Lynne2 said...

Margy, vinegar...I've heard that before. What kind of vinegar, like Heinz regular apple cider or ??

Lynne2 said...

Oh Hoda, sounds like a wonderful day! Just saw your pics on FB!

Lynne2 said...

Here is some info on comet panSTARRS

Lynne2 said...

Janet, many in my circle were affected by the same sort of illness last year as you've had. The cough and tiredness linger for some time. Hang in there...and get lots of rest!

paula eagleholic said...

Thank you all for the birthday wishes for Michael. John and I are going up to visit tomorrow, returning on Sunday. Larry has to work and can't go. We are going to celebrate his birthday over the weekend.

Staying in tonight, gotta pack and such. Larry and I went out to dinner with friends last nith.

Lynne, great news on the 5lbs...keep going girl, you can do it!

Lynne2 said...

oh, I'm gonna do it Paula! By this time next month I plan to be as slim and svelte as you are!

Lynne2 said...

opps, I mean next YEAR. DUH!

Have fun this weekend! Going to be a pretty one!

Hoda said...

YAY LYNNE well done you!

PAULA have a super weekend.

MARGY I love your posts and how you hold spcae for every body. Thinking of SHARON and MATTIE driving was so well said...Time passes so fast and the children grow up so fast...

Lynne2 said...

I may fall off the wagon Monday...it's Steve's birthday and I just KNOW he's going to want some cake!

Lynne2 said...

off to shower, sure is lonely on here tonight....

stronghunter said...

Congratulations on the weight loss, Lynne.

magpie said...

Yes, Apple Cider Vinegar....
about a tablespoon in a pretty good size of COLD water....
I usually try to do that a short time after a meal, Lynne2.

Of course you should have some cake, unless it is a total No No per your diet...
freeze some and have it when you can...

Howdy Eagle Pals....
Enjoying all the latest posts...

Good Night, and SED

magpie said...

Hoda...
Thanks, I try....but I feel I fall so short of the mark, often...
these are some rather busy days for me...hope that is going to ease up sometime or another
xo ♥ (( Hugs ))
I Love your enthusiasm !

paula eagleholic said...

Lynne, have a small piece to satisfy your craving.

Mema Jo said...

Judie - Jim had sent email around last week one day. I think he is ok.

I guess your Spring Break is grading all those finals. Have you decided that this is your last semester?

Great day for you Hoda!

Lynne - a piece of cake - you deserve it!

Hoda said...

Applecider vinegar the Braggs brand is very good. Be careful of what is in your vinegar. Some of it is not even edible!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Hoda, looks like you had a great day skiing. Lovely country up there.

Mema Jo said...

Sandi - when you see this - when are you going to see Brian? Are you coming to WV or are they coming up to DE.

Didn't realize it is time tomorrow to turn the clocks up Spring ahead
I so dislike when we need to change the time....

Temps are to be really spring like this upcoming week - with some rainy days.

Hoda said...

Yes PAULA...you and LARRY will have to come up for a visit. You would love it and would have lots to do and see.

Mema Jo said...

I'm going to close down for the day
TTUT

Take care and sleep well -[
Judie hope they didn't splash you much.

I love us! Good Night ♥

paula eagleholic said...

Saw the pics of the mammal at BWE...pretty good size. Wonder if it was a nutria?

paula eagleholic said...

Jo, I hate the spring forward, too. Messes with my internal clock!

Hoda said...

Sunday morning JO is when we spring ahead...so tomorrow night before you go to bed.
They did not realize that when they planned the yogathon for Sunday...a nine in the morning start is really and eight in the morning start. I will have to go to bed earlier on Saturday.

Hoda said...

Blessings JO...SED

Hoda said...

Gabby Giffords Got the Profiles in Courage Award. So pleased for her and proud of her.

magpie said...

Yes, but at least it is easier to just turn the Bird clocks ahead one hour instead of going backwards 11 hours!

Good to hear that Jim is somewhere amongst us...Thanks for that
good news, Jo...


Fun post from WV Jerry...

Okay, if I start, I won't find it easy to stop...

Hmmm, nutria...have to look that one up, Paula...

Tomorrow I will go to the Gym in the morning and then to the Dragon Boat Membership Drive and then to do some volunteer work collecting donations for the AGM...might be better to wait till Monday for the donation collection as it is probably weekend staff on and they do not know too much...

Lolly said...

I be home. Got home about an hour ago. Need to read back on the blog. Today I did several loads of wash and put it all up, did some mending, gtraded many papers, made up beds, picked up clutter, dusted, and cooked dinner. Jacob was fine, but could not go back to school because of the fever yesterday. Needless to say...I am tired!

We are going to attempt to get tickets to James' basketball game in the morning. Laurel and the boys are going to go too. Joseph is so excited. Hope we can get tickets!!

Lolly said...

Read back rather quickly through the blog. Glad to provide you with a geography lesson, Shirley, I know I have had to learn a lot about the east coast. I still do not have straight in my mind where everyone lives. Oh, I know the towns around the cam, and Jo and Megan, but I get confused with everyone else.

Hoda said...

You are a terrific Grandma LOLLY. Welcome home. You did a lot. Good luck with the tickets.

Ms Bookworm said...

Good Evening!

Thought I'd better drop in now, before I fall asleep in front of the TV. Had some heavy rain again here this afternoon, but then it decided to clear up. Supposed to be cloudy tomorrow, but up to 75 on Sunday!

I think Jim must be OK, because he did send out an e-mail a few days ago.

Have felt pretty good at times today, but every once in a while I'll move just the wrong way and get a pain that zings all the way down to my thumb. Still, much better than it was a few days ago!
The heating pad is still what works best to make it feel better.

We're going to meet my Sis-in-law for a late breakfast tomorrow. Would you all please say some healing prayers for her bulldog Charlee? Poor girl had to have her uterus removed in an emergency surgery. She developed a bad infection there (who knows why!), and is at the vet's getting antibiotics IV. She had a bad ear infection a few weeks ago that was pretty antibiotic-resistant, and the vet thinks it stuck in her system and reared it's ugly head again a few days ago. Gosh, there are some scary bacteria out there!
Charlee is improving, but the vet wants to be sure she's really back on her feet before sending her home.

Well, guess I'd better say goodnight. Trying to get lots of rest and get caught up on sleep. The porch light is on, and both security systems are enabled. Sleep well, and have SED. I love all of you! God bless, and goodnight. Prayers continue for everyone.

Goooooood Night, Again,
Eagle Pals...

this time for REAL

magpie said...

Nope, I was wrong....I'm not gone yet.
If Jim is on emails, well, that is
good, now we won't worry.
Thanks now to Andy and Jo both for saying he was seeming to be OK

Okay
G'Night..xoxo ♥

Lynne2 said...

oh geez Andy, Pyometra? Very dangerous condition, very bad infection of the uterus, happens in usually older, unspayed female dogs. Hope she's OK!

Lynne2 said...

Lolly the Whirling Dervish!

Lynne2 said...

heading to bed. Well, shower first, never did get there before I started watching Red Dawn. Going to try to get some cleaning and the rest of the putting away done tomorrow!

Lynne2 said...

after tomorrow, I may need MY heating pad, too! Would be nice to have it mostly ready to do the video tour!

If someone created Eagle Heating Pads, I think they might make a small fortune with this group!

Hope everyone has a good night, prayers for all!

Lolly said...

Not cold here...60, but once again I am chilled. Heading to a hot hot shower.

Night all! SED!!!

Costume Lady said...

Almost Bedtime here at my roost...
Had a house full of fun and laughter again tonight! Jayden LOVES the Super Hero characters and is a different one each Friday night. Tonight, he was "Superman, leaping tall buildings in a single bound", he had one of GG's placemats on his back for a Cape:)
Last week, he was Capt. America~

Still dragging tail from helping put away 2 tons of Food Bank food, yesterday. Going to bed right now!

Love and Prayers for all♥

Goodnight.

Sandi said...

Good Saturday morning Margy and all my eagle friends!

Morning sun is just starting to hit the nest. At 6:35 tomorrow morning, it will still be dark since it will only be 5:35 EST.

Lolly, hope you get those tickets - what a game that will be for the family!

Lynne2, if you deprive yourself of sweets all the time, you'll never last with your new food habits - have a piece of birthday cake on Monday! I insist!

Jo, we expected to go to WV this weekend but Brian had 2 weeks of out-of-town training as soon as he got back in the States. Not sure when we'll catch up with them.

Nail appt. and grocery store are all I have on my schedule today (well, plus the normal cleaning and laundry). Hoping to get outside in the yard and survey to see what's peeking up through the ground for spring. Temps are supposed to be in the 50s both days this weekend with sunshine!

Make it a great day all!

BTW, the 2nd comment under the live cam says we have "one baby at least. Hatched out yesterday." Lady must have her eagle cams mixed up, or she's been eating Hoda's brownies! =)

JudyE said...

GOOD M☼RNING EAGLE BUDS

DanaMo said...

Good morning everyone!
I could sure use a week of Saturdays!

First LAX scrimmage last night. Man was it cold!! I am so ready for spring temperatures! Bring it on.

Lori said...


Good Morning Eagle Fans!

LOLLY, you are the best kind of mother...I'm sure Laurel was thrilled with all you did when she got home!

HODA, thanks for the video!!! WOW! You are so lucky to live in the Nelson area. It's beautiful.

DANAMO, get some rest this weekend - you can pretend it's almost a half of a work week of Saturdays. :) How is your Dad doing?

JUDIE, hope you got all your papers graded. So glad you're enjoying your wannabe adults more this year.

SANDI, sorry it's a few weeks before you get to see Brian. Know you're dying to see him! What color on the nails today?

JUDYE, ANDY, SHARON and GLO - hope you're all feeling less aches and pains today. Big hugs!

LYNNE2, can't wait to see your video tour! But, don't over do.

MARGY, Hello girlfriend! Hope work goes fast today so you can start your weekend!

WV sUSAn said...

Sandi, I think that lady at OC must be watching a different cam. Even talking about Shep just feeding eaglet and Belle is off weeping because she can't sit on the eggs. hahahaha Crazy.

magpie said...

Yikes I have to leave NOW

Carolyn is keeping my work seat
warm for me ♥


"See You" from work, friends...

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

T-Bird said...

Lori-I so appreciate when you mention specifically all those needing extra prayers and such. It's like a synopsis. It helps me keep up more than I ever could. My memory and my ability to concentrate is not all that great. It really is lacking later in the day. Early in the morning is my best time to at least say hi.

magpie said...

Hi T-Bird !
From the dough factory


Your thoughts and words are clear and BRIGHT ☼ amd your typing is SPOT ON...
more than I can say for myself...often

magpie said...

And Hello More Eagle Pals....
Oh this work seat is so nice and warm....Jewels just left....

magpie said...

the "thing" aka mystery mammal at BWE is not in view right now,
maybe one fo the parents hauled it off


FEEDING TIME THERE NOW ☺☺☺

Somebodies got to make the dough, huh Magpie.

Judie said...

Good morning everyone.

Interesting day yesterday. Kitchen sink plumbing was so broken Darth had to give in and call a plumber -- kitchen a mess; bed broke apart and not fixed; Audrey locked in a closet all night; Darth and Judie no sleep; I did get splashed twice; GDub lost to Princeton. All-in-all not a bad day.

Good news is that Jim seems to be okay; headed to a critical basketball game against Dayton later today; got midterm grades calculated and posted for students; sunshine and lovely blue sky this morning.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

Sandi said...

Judie, life would be pretty boring if we didn't have days like your yesterday! It's just when we have too many of them strung together that we get frazzled!

Shirley, speaking of beds that broke and didn't get fixed, has Hunter's bed project been completed?? Despite the problems with the construction, it sounds like a very interesting concept. Did you say that it looks like a twin bed but can become a double bed PLUS it has drawers for storage? That sounds perfect for my mom's 2nd bedroom. Can you tell me the name of it so I can check it out on the Ikea site?

Lori and Dana, hope your dads are continuing to get their strength back a little bit each day.

OK, time to get a move on and get something done!

Enjoy the day everyone!

glo said...

Good rainy morning in IL. Dex and i will mostly be in and staying as dry and unmuddy as we can today. Wishing everyone a good weekend. Prayers for all humans and fin fur and feathers. I don't think we have fins on here now BUT there are some who need prayer anyway. There always are :-)

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning! Later then I thought it was and tomorrow it will even be later by another hour! I really don't like changing the clocks as my body takes so long to catch up!

Sounds like everyone's evening went well

Sandi - if you get the same bed for your mom as Shirley got for Hunter - please invite Shirley, Will and Kathryn up for the assembly crew! Experience is the best teacher!

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING...☼

It is a BEAUTIFUL morning, here in Nestville...45°, going up to 52°, 58° tomorrow and 60° on Monday.
If our Royal Babies make their appearance on Wed-Fri, the temps will be in the upper 40s during the day and 30s at night...no snow in sight! Seems like a pretty good scenario to me:)

JUDIE, didn't Audrey cry to get out of the closet...OMG, I just realized what I just said...A CAT COMING OUT OF THE CLOSET...a first on the Momster's Blog;)

GLO...speaking of FIN, GG does have FISH. Granddaughter, Jillian, bought her two Betas and a divided aquarium for Christmas. She has them sitting in the middle of her Kitchen table and loves watching and caring for them. I think she must feed them too much, because the water gets cloudy and I have to clean the container out about 3 times a week:)

Went to GG's Thursday and took a load of laundry to do while we visited. Capt. Gene called and told me that he and helpers were done loading food from the Food Bank truck and needed me at the church. I told GG that I would be back in a few hours and left. When I got back, she had washed and dried my laundry and had blouses and pants on hangers. WOW, couldn't believe it. She is so amazing, some days. I love her so much!
And so now, I must do MORE laundry...have a great day♥

Lolly said...

Good morning! Jack got on line this morning when tickets went on sale and we got 4 tickets! Headed to Austin as soon as Laurel can get here. Joseph has a soccer game at 9, so they will get here about 11 or little after and we head to Austin. Will eat on the way. Going to be fun!

Yes, only 4 tickets. Jacob, who we thought was doing okay, started throwing up at 1 this morning. Laurel was cleaning carpet in the middle of the night. He tried to make it to the bathroom. So, guess I was exposed to a bug. Time will tell. In the mean time, Jack has placed barf bags in the car in case someone else gets sick. Joey is tending to Jacob at home. Joseph is just so excited not only for the game today but being on the Univ of Texas campus. :)

Sandi said...

Shirley, went to FB and found the link that you posted to the bed. Have sent the link to my mom. My question is, how comfortable is that foam mattress when it's unfolded to be a double bed? This would be the bed Denny and I would sleep in when we visit my mom - right now, she gives up her bedroom to us and I'd rather she not have to do that. BTW, you did see that Jo has volunteered you, Kathryn, and Hunter to assemble the bed, right?

OK, off to get my nails done! Later!

Lolly said...

GG is a marvel!!! God bless her!

If she feeds the fish too much they will get sick. Just a pinch!! But, what a great thing for her to have!!

paula eagleholic said...

Have a great weekend! Heading to NJ. See ya tomorrow!

Love and hugs for all ♥

Judie said...

No Jo. Audrey was trying to keep quiet about being in the closet. lol

Paula, have a wonderful weekend. Safe travels.

Miss GG deserves a huge hug.♥

stronghunter said...

Sandi, the foam mattress is about four inches thick. We have not yet gotten the whole thing put together so that it opens out, so Hunter is using both mattresses. I can go check it out and let you know what I think.

Hmm, haven't read Jo's comment yet. I will check that out.

Wanda - GG has hidden talents that only come out whenever she wants them to do so. She is full of surprises! Love that lady.

Good day for a walk on the deck I think. Sandi I hope you get Green St Paddy's Day fingernail polish.

I forgot to wish Geula a Happy Birthday yesterday on the 8th!
I sure am slipping! :( Thinking about you Geula!

Mema Jo said...

I found Geula on FB - but not any recent comments!

BBL on with my day!

Just texted Kathryn that she has been volunteered by Jo to build your bed, Sandi. Kathryn replied quickly:

"I will not be volunteering for that."

stronghunter said...

Ok, Judie's kitty trapped in a closet. Glad she has been rescued.

stronghunter said...

Sassafras used to get trapped in my closet and then bark like crazy. She would push the door open, go in, then knock the door closed and get trapped.

Frantic barking would follow.

stronghunter said...

I had said the bed unfolds, Sandi. Actually, it has wheels and rolls out.

stronghunter said...

I will go lie down on Hunter's bed and report to you about the comfort level. We were looking for something kid-friendly and kid-comfortable. Needed more floor space in the room.

I do know there are more expensive mattresses than the ones we bought, but they were all rolled into bundles in the back room at Ikea.

Lolly said...

Luke, Laurel's dog, shuts himself in any room when the door will move. Then he whines. All doors have to have a doorstop to prevent him from doing this. He has already done it in their bathroom and he tore up the carpet. Who carpets bathrooms? Laurel and Joey plan to put in tile this summer.

Lolly said...

Joseph won his soccer game and they are on their way here. 63 and misty. Hope we run out of wet as we head south. Rain expected here later today. Please pray for heavy rain on north Tx! :)

Lolly said...

Whoops, I did not do a head plant, but I do know what I did. lol

Lolly said...

Interesting...trash can is on top of the work March in one post and at the end of date on the second post.

Wanda, when you do not have a trash can, look for it on top of a word...and slightly hidden.

stronghunter said...

Both at nest. Lunchtime! Much chirping.

stronghunter said...

Sunshine. Two eggs visible.

stronghunter said...

Belle eats and flies. Shep settles on eggs.

Lolly said...

Good reporting, Shirley.

Lauel should be here soon and we are heading out, so shutting down. Please do not chat too much, I do not like catching up. :) lol

Later Gators! I love us!!!

Oh, and going for the fun and hope for a win, but Terry HS is playing against a Dallas team, often State Champions. Yikes!! WE CAN DO THIS!

stronghunter said...

Wishing your team luck, Lolly.

Culpeper won a state championship when I was there. It was very exciting.

stronghunter said...

Kathryn is hanging out with her girlfriends for the day.

stronghunter said...

Checked the bed--not as soft and comfortable as my own bed. Might be better with an egg crate mattress topper on it. They had that bed set up in the Ikea store. You might want to check it out for yourself.

Hunter is sleeping on two mattresses on the bed. That might be a possibility, too.

Sandi said...

Shirley, thanks for the feedback on the bed. I was actually thinking of the idea of having 2 twin mattresses on the bed instead of the foam that folds over. A single person using the bed would have the comfort of 2 mattresses (kinda like the princess and the pea). =) If the bed is going to be rolled open and used as a double, you could just slide the top mattress over onto one side and each person would have a mattress. When I checked the Ikea site, there are several daybeds with higher sides that might be better suited to using 2 mattresses.

OK, need to get some sunshine and fresh air! BBL!

Lynne2 said...

Hidey Ho y'all! The Dervishes are WHIRLING like crazy around here today! But tell, WHY does everything take so much longer that you think it will :(

Just stopping for a salad break, and back to work!

Lynne2 said...

Save travels Lolly, slight risk of severe weather your way this PM.

stronghunter said...

Yes, there are some other daybeds.

stronghunter said...

The foam mattress does not fold over as part of the opening or closing of the bed. But it could be folded. Only 4 inches thick per mattress.

stronghunter said...

Looks like Austin is going to be a busy place this weekend. There is some other event there--saw it on the news.

stronghunter said...

Egg roll at the sunny nest.

magpie said...

NatureNut said...

Good Afternoon Eagle Buds!
Here at Park could see top of Ms. Eagle's head in the nest. Don't really have any ospreys staking out the platforms, but several around.
Saw a great pileated woodpecker on branch beside the road as I was driving. Too bad I couldn't stop. The sun was streaming through it's red head!
The house got so clean that I should invite the Pope!
Daughter flying in at about 6 PM and I have my Greek restaurant wish list from Fubby to pick up on way home!
BBL

stronghunter said...

I see that big fuzz pile, Margy. They look to be alone at the moment.

Lynne2 said...

anyone following Eagles for Kids, Larry and Lucy? She laid and egg at 2:24pm today!! She's the female that got very badly injured feet that don't work right anymore. A trap, fishing line, no one knows for sure. But she is so amazing! And Larry had taken such good care of her!

stronghunter said...

Would love to have seen that woodpecker, Loretta. Remember seeing one in my backyard in a former house. Huge. It was tearing a tree stump apart.

Lynne2 said...

Delta may have an egg today too!

LOOOOWWWEEEEDDDAAA hope you have a fantastic vistit with your daughter!

stronghunter said...

Looks like a pillow for the adults has been created in the nest.

Some insect just crawled across the lens.

Sandi said...

Wow, looks like something with feathers was delivered to the BWE mest and has been de-feathered! I can't even see the chicks!! Check it out!!

Lynne2 said...

oh my, doesn't that look, uh, scrumptious.

Hoda said...

Good day here. Sunny not a cloud in the sky and went out in shoes, no mitts, no top coat either. I did wear a fleece jacket and was in a skirt too...It is actually warm. I think I could have done without my tuque...

Got two invitations to go skiing today and did not go as I have to prepare for the yogathon tomorrow...I did walk for over an hour by way of physical activity. I did not go to the gym this morning I was too sleepy. Registered and paid for my Dragon Boat season already and am excited by the number of new people who have joined us.

SORRY TO HEAR JACOB is not well today. I hope JOSEPH enjoys the game LOLLY. I hope too that you do not get what JACOB has.

JudyE said...

Mema Jo said...

Checked out BWE - Fluffy feathers to be sure!

Hoda - glad you are reserving your strength for tomorrow.

Almost dinner time - what to have?????

stronghunter said...

He seems to be watching something on the cam. Belle must be there.

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

spiinng circle is back to haunt me

stronghunter said...

Maybe she did tell him off, Judy.

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

HEY they found a clock for me at work I haven't seen it yet but sounds like MARGY bird call on the hour Brian at work told me about it and I didn't get a chance to see it today

JudyE said...

ANGIE got Jordyn a bed sort of line that but the bed in in a drawer under the bed it pulls out It came with a foam matterss and Angie said it was not confortable They went and bought a reg matress for it instead of the one that came with it The bed also has drawers for cloths beside the extra bed

stronghunter said...

That nest is a mess, Judy. I saw a lottle one peeking out in front of the adult just now.

I think it is not all fish scales. Looks like feathers or fur to me. Some bloody remains too.

stronghunter said...

Bobbleheads exposed at BW.

JudyE said...

I can't seem to see the third eaglet

JudyE said...

love them black eyes someone said it you look close you can see some dark pin feathers if you zoom is what they said

stronghunter said...

Me neither, Judy.

I see two heads.

JudyE said...

I saw it this am was by itself but not now OK now I am worried has anyone else see all three today



wow what is making all the pretty noises and music at the nest lots of different birds for sure

JudyE said...

silly question the egg that was laid at Mn today looks sort of bloody streaks I never saw that on anyother egg have you all??

JudyE said...

Parents switch at BW and still only see two heads

JudyE said...

JudyE said...



SHEP is eating the pile of whatever was on the coner or the bowl I was gonna ask earlier what it was

JudyE said...

Judie said...

Home!

What a game today. Enough to give an old woman a heart attack. Overtime. GDub beat Dayton 81-80. Phew.

Lowreeda, have a great visit with Sherry.

Hoda, do conserve your energy for tomorrow. Sandperson will sprinkle extra sleepy dust for you.

Okay, need to go to the scullery. Crab legs in the freezer so that will be dinner with some Cole slaw.

Shep looks nice in the last of the sun.

stronghunter said...

I thought it was flugg, Judy. They have quite a pile of it.

JudyE said...

stronghunter said...

Yum, crab legs and cole slaw. Sounds good, Judie.

My friend Sunna called to set up another bowling session on Monday. She has not given up on me yet.

JudyE said...
