Good morning everyone. Wow another feather for IL. I am giving it to MeMa jo
Good morning. Praying for the best results for Mema Jo on her PET scan. I LOVE US!
Happy Birthday Paula
Hi, Gang!HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PAULA!!! HOPE YOU HAVE A SPECTACULAR DAY!!!Omigosh, I need to ask for LOTS of prayers!!! Shirley, you were saying you have been thinking about our bees, well, they're NOT back, but now we have a swarm of very large black ants humming around the lights in the shelf above my chair in the living room. They are dropping down on my chair, and as a result I have probably 15 or 20 ant bites! I put Emma in her crate back in our bedroom right away so she wouldn't get bitten. I'm really frustrated, though. This has been going on since about 4 am our time, and I still have to wait another half hour before I can get a person at the closest pest control company.They're on Angie's List, so they're probably pretty good. I DON'T want them spraying any bug spray in the house, so this is going to be quite a challenge! Right now I think I'm going to jump in the shower--I feel like there are a bunch of ants up under my clothing, and I'm squirming!!!I am NEVER, EVER going to ask "What's next?" again!!! AARGH!(and Emma says, "WOOF!")
Glo you are seriously getting the knack for finding these new threads!Thanks and Thanks Steve for a Brand SpankingNew Thursday Thread
Andrea!this is totally beyond belief....I am so sorry for your situation there.....
One beautiful orange egg at Kestrel cam in Nebraska: American Kestrel, Nebraska
Happy Birthday Paula! Hope it's the best ever!ANDY....O M G. I'm beginning to think those Stinkbugs weren't so bad after all....Safe travels back to PA Lori, should be a beautiful day for the drive!
I've got Chipping Sparrows singing like mad this morning here!
and Hummingbird feeder is up!Margy, forgot to tell you...aster seeds are in the frig, hopefully being faked out in to thinking it's winter! Put them in last Saturday.
mom and dad just flew in!
Andy, oh my gosh, aren't you guys renting that place? Have you considered moving?
Yes, OMG for sure! Shirley, we are purchasing this place. Just don't ask me why right now! Been here since 1980. Trouble is, with the crazy economy, we're upside down on our loan. Another AARGH!!! Don't know what else we could afford that would allow us to keep dear Emma!She's about 45-50 lbs., and most apartments around here only allow dogs under 25 lbs.! Any rental houses we could afford are in a not-so-nice neighborhood. Sigh....
Good grief, sounds like we have a bird's nest in the dryer vent again.
Well, keeping Emma is important. That is for sure. I did remember that you all had a house in some other location at one point.
Good morning everyone! Just wanted to pop in and tell Paula HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :)
Good morning, PattiO!
Just a quick good morning! Have to get ready for the service this morning. I'll be back!
must get to work
Have a good day at work, Lynne.
Thanks for the call over Glo and thank you Steve for the new thread.

Thank you so much, GloThanks for a fresh new thread, Steve.My test this am hour was no problemDon't know the results until 2 weeks when I have my dr appointment - that is sort of a problem - But not to worry! God is in charge.It is still warm weather here in the valley. Andy - good golly! Sounds like you need to vacate your house - put a tent out in the yard - you are having the worst kind of luck with insects! Hope the problem is cleared up soon ♥
Happy birthday Paula

STAY SAFE SISRADAR LOOKS LIKE ITS JUST APPROACHING YOU
I see two dead fish and two pigletss at the 12 area looking out over the edge only see bottoms of them
Thank you dear Sweet Jo for reporting in...ok two weeks, that may seem like awhile...but I'm glad you are OK with it... (( Hugs and Rest Well )) and have a nice lunch if you have not eaten already !! ♥ ☺
I'm baaack!! Service was very nice. Only three of us there that were not family. So glad we were able to be there for Jim.ANDY!!!! My goodness! I do believe it is time for you to move to Texas! That would make your family happy.Immediatly on getting home, I back two sopapilla cheese cakes. Co hostess tonight at a meeting at church. Friend, Kaye, is making little sandwiches and bringing a veggie tray. It is also her birthday, Paula's twin, I guess.HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PAULA. WISHING YOU A WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY AND THE YEAR AHEAD FULL OF HAPPY MOMENTS AND BLESSINGS.
I baked the cheesecakes, not backed them. LOL
Jack had blood work done yesterday and he goes to the doctor next Monday. Would appreciate it if you would keep him in prayer. We have done very well with not worrying, but it does sit there in the corner of your mind. We did not tell his sister and she is a serious worrier and fretter, and her hubby would have all kinds of weird ways for healing. LOL
While in the kitchen, I watched the wren come to the nest so caustiously to feed her babies, not knowing I was a foot away watching. :) Also, saw our first hummingbird at the feeder. Yea!
LOLLY you ought to set up a cam on the werns nest
87° out now feels like is 90° tooo soon to be this HOT
Good Afternoon from rainy Ohio, Eagle Buds !♫♫ Happy Day to PAULA ♪♪♪JO, hope you had a scrumptious lunch after the test. We'll all look forward to results in two weeks !ANDY, it's just one plague after another ! Arrrrrgggghhhh !LYNNE2, you are so sweet with your empathy for the little boy upstairs. That father is an *%%^@^+ !!! Hope it all resolves soon so you and Steve can have some peace and quiet ! Love your avatar !LORI, hope your trip back to PA went well and that you found some improvement in your dad and mom waiting for you ! Hugs galore !LOLLY, sad to lose JoAnn and sadder still that she died with so few who cared. Wonderful of you and Steve to pay tribute the way you did. MARGIE, double carpal tunnel ? Ugh, but at least it sounds like progress to have an answer. Hope the fix is done soon and effectively ! Love and prayers for all in need for whatever reason ! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
SEHP is in the house
SHEP brought in big fish
See two eaglets and a parent, I think Belle, at 12. Looks like one is holding its head over the edge and the other is safely inside. Okay, the first one has turned and now Shep arrives with a big ol fish! Belle comes over and takes charge. Her back is to the cam.
the chicks are really panting as well as Shep
one of the chicks is going over to Shep and the other is at Belle
That fish is still flopping too
Fish is flopping. Fresh wushi for lunch.
Belle has two feet on it now Shep is eating something at 6 with chick by his side
That is funny to see each eaglet being fed by a parent at opposite sides of the nest.
Judy, I like the idea of the cam on the wren's nest, but afraid there is no place to position the cam.
This is from FB a video from Rocky River, OHIO This is a story about the Eagles of Rocky River, Ohio. A few days ago the Male Bald Eagle was hit and killed. The Female Eagle with eggs in the nest is now o...
I hope you all view the video It is amazing to the animal world I think that this happened like this the end wow I want to keep checking on this now
suppose I should get out of my night close LOL OH I am off for three days I ask for Sat of to help with the Bday party for Jordyn gonna be 5 wow also put in for my vacation for 27th a week and 1 day have to take by May19 or loose it
Here is a video of HOPE and HONOR at the FTMEYERS nest Hope and Honor at Play
Hi!I'm back for a bit. Called Vector Control about the ants, but they only come out if the ants are in the YARD. They're all in the house.Called the closest exterminator, but have no call back yet. About to call another, and another, until I get an answer. This is playing on my last raw nerve.Lolly, how I WISH we could pack up and move to Texas and be near the kids, but Ken's job is here. He's trying to get to a milestone before he retires. He's been with the company for 47 years.Jo, guess we'll all have to wait, but surely hope for an excellent report!!!Well, gotta make some calls. Will BBL...
Hummingbirds at the TX feeders - won't be long! We stopped at I-HOPS after my testing. I love their coffee and also their buttermilk pancakes! Lori by now your mom and dad should have you there and be quite happy about it. I'm sure it was hard to say good bye to your bed!
Just finished my walking. Jack and I were entertained by the squirrels and white wing doves under the feeders and getting on one. Going to have to figure out something to keep the squirrels of that one. Also, have new feeders to put up. Niece in Georgia gave us a new feeder. I should say feeders as there are several on a pole. Hmmmm Will have to figure out a place for it and a way to keep the squirrels off. Lisa also gave us a new hummer feeder. It is a bright red strawberry.
It is up to 61 and I really should venture outside.
Pretty song a bird is singing. Wonder what it is? Anyone? Possibly a mocking bird?
Hi all! I see we have another new thread! Thanks Steve!Jo, 2 weeks of waiting??? GRRRRR!!Andy, what a string of bad luck with annoying critters in your house!!!Lolly, I'll be praying for Jack for a good report from the doctor.Kay, clicked on the Columbus falcon cam a few days ago and see the falcon there is sitting on 4 eggs! Hope they actually hatch this year!Lori, hope your trip back to PA was an easy one - bet your folks are happy you're back!!Need to get some school work done so I don't know if I'll be back on the blog this evening.Later!
Touching video, JudyE, of the Eagles in Rocky River, Ohio...hope it works out and that the eggs can be hatched and chicks nurturedThank You
Janet...I think you know what you need to do by going to the Auction of the family home...glad that Tom and Livvy will be your companions....definitely not something to go through alone(( Hugs ))
I think Father Kestrel just flew into the nest box with a critter, a rodent....or small bird,then flew out with it! What's up with That ?But Mother Kestrel HAD just seemed to have devoured a meal just before that
Kay:You did not talk much about YOURSELF but it was Swell tosee our ☼HI☼ Sunshine here todayLolly, yes, Jack and you remain in my prayers...hoping for a good report from thedoctor on Monday ♥
Happy Birthday Dinner Wishesfor Paula and Studmuffin...Carriage House, sounds very niceas did I-Hop for JO earlier ☺
It's a little cooler here this evening....Rain would not bother me a bit...but we might get winds with it later, and that doesn't excite me at all Best Wishes for a Great Evening, Eagle Pals...RED FRIDAY will be here soonttfn xo ♥
Oh, Hoping that Andrea findsa top-notch exterminatorvery soon, at a good price
Belle had brought in some fluff awhile ago, picked around at the food, but the babies did not seemvery interested....Shep was there when she arrived,they seem to both be gone now, orat least that is, out of view
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Paula. Hope the worries and stresses of life are minimized today and the joys and laughter are maxed!
Thank you for all the wonderful Birthday wishes! Have had a good day...heading out to dinner shortly.

Oh, wow....watching the news and the tornado damage today.Heading to church in about 45 minutes.
Jo, we will wait with you!Andy, so sorry about the darned ants!Hello Kay!PattiO, thanks for popping in .... Suzan too!
Andy, so very sorry about the invasion of ants. Cannot imagine what you must be going through. Sure hope an exterminator can make the problem go away quickly.Lori, you must be back with your parents now. I'm sure they missed you.Jo, wish you did not have to wait two weeks but we will all be waiting with you. Hugs!Maybe memory fades more quickly these days but it sure seems as if Hedgie and Shamrock are doing a lot more moving around sooner than eaglets in past years. Trying to actually toddle, it seems.Margy, I think we are the only two who watch the kestrel. Mom arrived and tucked her head in after settling on the egg. I Googled kestrel and found a really nice video of a kestrel being trained for release.Bet Paula is enjoying her birthday dinner. Headed to put my feets up to watch Midsomer Murders. Just in case: the sandperson will begin rounds at 11pm. Restful sleep for all.
Prayers for Dearest JO in two weeks time we will hear an all clear...be gone with you Damned Spot! BE GONE!!!Prayers for JACK and LOLLY for JACK'S good results next Monday...No worried energy just very strong prayers and good vibes for JACK!!! I will eat that BAR-B-Qued head of cabbage and drink red wine with it as he hosts us all on our reunion to TEXAS and HAWKWOOD RANCH!.ANDY I agree with LOLLY time to move to TEXAS even though I hear you say that KEN wants to reach 50 and he is at 47! At the end of my time, 30 years, I kept thinking they should give me time off for good behaviour!!! LOL!!!Seriously I am sorry now for the ant situation. Glad the body is healing though.HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAULA.MARGY keep us posted about those tunnels and may there be healing...Looking to hear from LORI of her safe arrival.JANET thinking of you and your trip to look at family connections and releasing things to the LIGHT as the sale goes through.Good to hear your reports SHIRLEY and tell HUNTER I am so very glad to know whom to go to if I encounter a ZOMBIE!!!

Well I'm calling it a day SED ♥AOYPSee ya in the am ☼ at Sycamore Sunrise Cyber CafeBless this Nestand all ♀ ♥ ♂ whom watch it at Sycamore Palace Healing thoughts forthose in need"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone is fighting some kind of battle."
Goodnight...Oh GARDENS not ranch! LOL!!! Got It...I think Texas and Ranch are synonymous!!!PRAYERS♥
No ranch here, sorry Hoda! There are ranches all around but none right here on my land. lolWatched AI. Scotty was on and as cute as ever. When I look at him I wish I was 16 again. lolThen Kelly sang. It was amusing to see our little town of Burleson plastered on the screen before she sang. Loved listening to her BUT she looked awful. Would someone please tell her to go back to her natural hair color and forget the gaudy eye make up. Geeeeeeesh!Heading to the shower. Night all! Glad you had a good birthday, Paula.SED!!!
You got to check this out tooo its the OHIO nest the courtship of the Rocky River nest that was on the newsabout it News on the eagle at Rocky River OHIO near Cleveland Courtship
Trying to wind down a bit. Have been trying to finish up my taxes. Will had gotten the birds out of the dryer vent before I asked him to. We now have a new vent cover. Just thankful it is not bees or ants. But the birds do like to set up housekeeping in the dryer vent from time to time. Usually it is starlings. Lolly, I had not been keeping up with your posts . . . Did not realize you had an AI contestant from Burlston. Hmm, had not thought you had a ranch. Guess you could have a few cattle and some horses, but that might interfere with your travels. Hunter and a friend wandered off to an adjacent subdivision this afternoon. Oh dear me, I am not ready for this. But he was home before dark all sweaty from playing basketball, and the subdivision is really very close. Just told him to make sure we know where he is going next time.
SED, everyone. See you tomorrow.
JUDY, loved the video of the eagle Momma getting a new baby daddy:)GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE...Sending love and prayers ~♥~
Lovely video, Judy.Thinking of you, Jo.
Good morning my eagle friends - it's Friday!! No kids for me today - we have all day to work on grades for 3rd marking period! Raining at the nest and the chicks are trying to wiggle themselves under Mom - not quite making it.No rain here yet, but very foggy! Don't have to be at school til 8am so I have a little extra time this morning.
Good morning,Thunder, lightning, and pouring rain here. Wow!I was sound asleep until I got a cold cat nose in my face; then I heard the thunder.
Belle is tenting now, covering her babies! Morning Shirley - sorry to hear about your rude awakening!
LOL. Thanks, Sandi. George likes to have his breakfast early.
Just getting ready to check the eagles, Sandi. Looks like the nest is about to get a big downpour.
Good Morning Eagle Pals..Pouring Down Rain here, and the winds are picking up a little
Glad that Will got the birds out of the dryer vent, ShirleyThe outside screen from the dryer vent a few years back was the entry point for the Squirrel....

Good morning my eagle peeps.
Shep just arrived with a nice fish!
Hunter caught the bus in between the worst parts of the storms this morning. I was prepared to take him, but he wanted to ride the bus. It arrived just ah he got there.Well, her comes Shep with a big fish. Belle moved off the little one with much flapping. Babies are huddled together. They do not like this rain too much.
But they are now begging for breakfast, and Belle is feeding.
Belle is feeding the chirping kids, they are scarfing it down.
Time to crawl back under the blankets for a few. Love sleeping in on a rainy morning. Glad that Hunter could catch that bus.
Wow, large chunk taken out of that fish already. Kiddies are crawling back under Belle.
Belle is trying to get the chicks under her again...
Deep apologies Paula! HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!!!! Love and (((((HUGS)))))
