Do I get a feather? Wow, did not see this coming.Thanks Steve! Will call others over!
lol Thanks for waiting, Margy!!I am flustered IE just upgraded for me and I lost my favorites tabs across the page. Gotta figure it all out! Drat!!Okay...here is what I was getting on to tell you.Yesterday closed with a Bluebird, well guess what.....today starts with a male Painted Bunting. Wahoooo! He was on our suet and stayed for a long time. Jack and I were afraid when he decided to leave he would just plop onto the ground, he ate so much!! While standing there with our noses pressed to the window, up flies a hummer to eat...a foot in front of our faces. Yep, gonna be a good day. And, I got a feather!!
Thanks for the new thread STEVE and the call over LOLLY Got news on truck being fixed FUEL PUMP They just didn't want to start replacing parts wanted to to duplicate itself the issue well at one time it did and there was no fuel pressure at the time for just a split second and that is what they are fixing besides the list of other stuff I wanted check like the brake studder and I was right drums need to be rounded and they are doing it there so oil change also so hopefully by this evening I will have a truck YEAH
Okay, just got my favorites bar back. Happy camper!I am not off to walk, shop, and dig in dirt. Have a great day! I am going to!!!!
Watching the news just reminded me that I did get woke up last nite to the sound of hard hard hard rain and loud thunder but then went back to sleep Just check my rain gauge and I got just a little over ONE INCH of rain on the news they said some peeps got up to 3 inches WOW the months rain fall in one nite for that area lol
Jealous of the rain1Just finished our walk. As we walked the Painted Bunting came back, also saw Blue jay, Cardinal, Red Bellied Woodpecker, and a hummer. Not to mention all the sparrows and doves! And, 7 squirrels on the ground playing tag. lol
And, all I had to do was turn around and see Belle with her pealets!
I now have spell check on the blog. What????
you must off gotten spell check with the new IE upgrade I have it on google
just out of the shower called and they are sending the courtesy van for me so I can get up there to get my truck when it is done
the van doesn't head out till 3 I think I will take my camera just in case the juvie is still around the tower up there

and a wing flap
that felt so much better one is plotzed in middle of nest and other at 1 headless
Its 86° out right now really a hot one
Loly Wanda and her grandson Brandon...they will love this Painted Bunting reportJudyE - I think fuel pump was my very first guess way back when....hope it is not a $$$ fix
But I really did think it was going to be starter, like PaulasaidThanks Steve for the New ThreadThanks Lolly...for the call overxo bye now ♥
Three of the five stork eggsin the Netherlands nest....have hatchedbig and bobbly they are
Just got message from Megan - she was leaving the dr office because she is still feeling the dizziness. Yesterday she got a wasp sting and that is when it started - Megan said that she was already on an antibiotic and a steroid for sinus issues and she thought she was covered. I'll keep you posted... ♥
Judy - happy they found the reason - No More Start Up problems, I hope. Off to the dentist
Jo, I did catch the cavity count and I thought it might be a typo, but I'm trying to keep my mouth shut...just in case your teeth were suddenly betraying you.
Belle is sitting in the nest with the chicks one on each side of her
well Brooks from Walker Ford called and said it may not be done by this afternoon for me not to come up via courtesy van
BELLE CALLING OUT
looking up she is and around
Checked out the stork cam, Margy. Will try to keep up with it. I see that Belle is in the nest with the kiddies. They are snuggling up to her.
Time for a quick grocery store run. BBL.
I hear a real pretty sounding bird at the nest
Belle was probably thinking it won't be long before my chicks leave so I need to get some snuggle quality time with them
89° out now
feels like 93° my weather apps says
Hi, Everyone,I have been MIA for a while, and I apologize for that! Ken has a miserable cold that's settled in his chest. I've been trying to vacuum and dust the whole house as much as possible, since he seems to have asthma kicking in. He always sounds wheezy, kind of like antique bagpipes, but when he gets a cold, he sounds really bad. Can't get him to go to the doctor, but he has been using Zicam, and it's been helping. He's feeling better, but really tired, and I'm happy that he decided to stay home from work today. He's been napping big-time. Jo, FANTASTIC NEWS of your healing!PRAISE GOD!!! I'm SOOO happy for you!!!Have been thinking of Lynn a LOT, and missing her more than words can explain. Lori, CONGRATULATIONS on passing your test!!! I'm so proud of you!I knew you could do it! Lynn must have been with you to help you with the answers you weren't sure of! Way to GO!!!Shirley, prayers for Hunter's finger! Hope he'll be able to play.Shar & Thelma, healing prayers for both of you!! Shar, now, you KNOW that no Momsters are allowed to fall! Promise not to slip up again! (((HUGS))) for both of you!Glo, God bless you for adopting those 2 beautiful cats! Love the pictures of Dex and them!Lolly, a Painted Bunting?!! I'm SO jealous! If he comes back, try to get a picture of him, please!Well, gotta run. Just about lunch time here. Will check back in later if at all possible. HAGD, everyone! I ♥ us!!
Megan Update:Apparently there is still a lot of fluid in my ears and the Dr thinks maybe I have a virus in the ear, and that could cause the dizziness. Hopefully these pills will help.
my delete I meant to say parent in the attic not nest and ANDY hope KEN gets better
I see four feetsies and two half of eagles in the nest
The nest: I see 2 yellow talon feetsies up at the very edge of 11:00I know it isn't an adult - little brown feathered belly! They are3 getting really grown up and BOLD.
sure wish they would come down from 12 can't see
looks like they are taking turns wing flapping I see wings go up one at ll and one at l
I have returned as you can read from the dentist. He found 3 not 12 and not 2 cavities - good until 6 more month check up.Our eaglets are starting to jump with their wings spread wide - Branching I think it is called.
Oh how I wish we could see the very top of our nest - Maybe next year as promised. Going to school program this evening for ggd, Alexis. Then when I come home I will watch my Terrific Tuesday TV programs. Sometimes I get confused as to what I write here on the blog and as to what I have already written over on my FB wall. Sorry if I repeat myself here ♥
Quick afternoon check in.First off, my apologies Mema Jo, I too speed read sometimes and miss things...so I am sorry for missing that! JUDYE: hope they get that truck fixed...pronto!!!! how inconvenient. I know you wnat it done right, however, this is a bit of a wait!A good day here thus far. Getting ready to go get the kid. Since the eye has felt a lot better, been back outside....sunny, close to 80...nice day. low humidity. in a couple of months i'll be stuck inside hiding from the heat...enjoying it while i can...later gaters!
I put some pictures from Jordyn disney trip just the ones and more that I have posted as avatar I know hard to see as a avatar so here they are Jordyn disney adventure
sis they just didn't want to start replacing parts they wanted to see if they could get the truck to duplicate what it did not starting like he said it could be a number of things and they didn't want to replace everything it could be would be to expensive -- so when they finally go it to not start and no fuel pressure BINGO so the game goes
OH JO I did see your 12 cavities comment but didn't comment thinking WOW been a long time to the dentist JO LOL NO just kidding on that Hey anything is possible with teeth especially as we get older I hear kids
Lots of kids screaming and playing out side at the school must be free time or recess
I googled and found out it is 2.8 miles to the cell phone tower eagle nest so we walking it in 45 min not bad I guess
BIG CAM SHAKE
these are two of the laziest eaglelets I have ever seen LOL
one chicks has a piece of twig in beak the other watching
getting up fight fight wow surprised me
Hello everyone.Much to catch up on.Have placed the Sandperson on probation. Zapped me last night and then decided to play hooky. Reminded Sandperson that I know a secret place...Jo, glad you had fewer than 12 cavities and please enjoy the evening with Miss Meatball.JudyE, hoping you get your truck fixed pronto. So inconvenient and expensive.Also hoping Megan starts to feel better quickly. Dizzy is not fun.Wishing Kay a belated safe travel and a fun time at the graduation.Andy, wishing Ken a quick recovery. A cold and asthma has to be debilitating.Very busy these last few days. Had to see the dermatologist to have a wart burned off. Never had a wart before. Tired to convince Darth the Dr. recommended six months of no cooking or housework. Not buying that.So, will try to check back tonight to make sure Sandperson is on the job.
that is now over as fast at it began LOL
LOLLY, jealous of all the beautiful birds you saw today. WOW!JO, glad to hear your cavity count has ben considerably lowered! What a relief!JANET, glad your eye is feeling better today and you've been able to get outside.JUDYE, sorry about the truck...hope they get it finished today.

Maybe have to do a little hiking to check between the trees right off the road.BTW, the other day I mentioned the little bird that had bonked the window at Chelsea. I made him a motel for Friday night. I went back there Sunday and birdy was gone and nothing had been disturbed.Lolly, you lucky ducks. My daughter saw painted buntings and all I got was an email picture!!Our hummer has been back every day. I got several pics of him, but he and feeder were blurry. The trees and leaves were beautiful. Wind must have been blowing! I got a good shot of his back, but I want that red throat!JudyE, your Jordyn pics are great! BTW, you mentioned Google Spell Checker.I've had it and all of a sudden it disappeared and now there is some SpellBoy thing that says cut and paste and doesn't work. DUH?Gotta do din din. Hope everyone's is feeling OK or will be ASAP ☺
Got some more work done in the yard. The Painted Bunting was around all day. Wow!Squirrels were busy today digging up caladium bulbs and nibbling off the growth shoots. CURSE WORDS!!!!May have squirrel stew soon!!! Geeeesh!!!!
Good evening folks. I went to the outlet mall this morning to see if I could find something new to wear that wasn't too pricey. As I was checking out at Chicos(I got a couple of summer blouses) the clerk mentioned that she driving her daughter to Matrinsburg WV tomorrow.The daughter is thinking of accepting a job there for a year. Anyway I told her it must be a wonderful town because I had several internet friends from around there. Just wanted you all to know of my small world connection today. LOL

Well, if that bird is not beauteous, or would it be beauteously hansome, then I wouldn't know what IS.Thank You, Lolly! You and others take very good care of usnon-Facebookers ☺ ♥
Awe.....you are so sweet!
Big Busy Week, Hoda....You could be a Star in Richard Scarry's book Busy Busy World You, and many others here...Be sure to build in some rest periods
I think when the sun shines on Wednesday ☼as it s'posed to do....My Megan Plants are going to beLovin' It !Thinking of Kay, our ☼HI☼ Sunshine, as she wends her way to Michigan....
Poor Blackwater...the Eagle Cam is up and running, but the Osprey am is now, NOT updating....never a dull cam tech moment there !
When working in the yard, I rest by sitting on the ground and pull weeds sitting down! So I rest!!
Going to work in the yard tomorrow and then the cold damp weather arrives. Will stay in and clean house, but it is going down the drain now! :)Andy, so very sorry your hubby is not well, but I did not hear any mention of bees or bugs!!!
Sensible Technique, Lolly...some serious bubbles beckon;off to the showers for me!ttfn ♥
Oh my gosh Lolly. How did you get the sparrows to stand still so you could paint them? Oh, of course -- the brownies. Seriously, the Painted Buntings are beauteous and thank you for the picture.Have to wonder what happened to the dragon boats as they need to go to a clinic. Hope they feel better soon.I know the soup kitchen was a huge success tonight as always. Hope Wanda isn't too tired to check in tonight.
Well my friends, the end of a lovely day. :) I was able to be outside a good bit of the afternoon and it was so nice! I was thankful that my eye felt almost normal and that the sun was out. :) :) :) We ran some errands this morning....including a trip to Bob Evans for breakfast!We went to lowes this afternoon to get the stuff to finish up the privacy fence across the front of the back yard and I picked up some dirt and some flowers. I am not my normal amount of motivation this year....normally by now I have flowers everywhere...but this year, not so much. I bought some portulaca to put in my hanging pots and a beautiful gerber daisy....but that's it. I might pick up some wavy petunias if I can find the color that I want...and if not...okay...I have my four massages tomorrow (yeah!!!!), then take Olivia to ice skating for a bit. Maybe I'll plant a bit tomorrow....we shall see.Have SED all. Good night!
hello.finally got out of work at 8:20. Not a good night...the unspeakable cruelty of some people is unbelievable. Sorry to hear Kubby and Megan are ailing. Hopefully both will be better, like NOW!
Okay, the Sandperson is contrite, sends serious apologies, and has promised to make rounds as scheduled. Departure will be 11pm.Restful sleep for all.
For anyone who may be interest, PBS has a Nature show on tomorrow night about theRoyalLippizan Horses
Judy, way unacceptable for you to not have your taxes finished by now. Maybe try to find a number to call where you can actually talk to a live person. Most everyone I know got the refund in less than a month!
Good evening - I have enjoyed my 2 TV shows Finales. Good ending for the season.You know those 3 very small cavities only took about 20 minutes to fix.. But wait until I see that bill - Wooooeeee!The school program this evening was very enjoyable! Alexis and her group did the cutest up-beat dance. Their choral group (elementary school age)were exceptional and their songs were of a variety. Good evening ♥
I am still going to out run the SandmanBusy day and didn't have any time to put my feet up!SED to allDon't forget to say your prayersI ♥ US
Hi, Gang,I realized after I signed off earlier that I forgot to include a couple of things in my last comment. JudyE, glad your truck will be fixed soon, and I hope it won't be too expensive!!! Ken and I had H&R Block do our taxes, and they e-filed for us. We got our refunds, State and Federal, in about a week, direct deposit! Better rattle somebody's cage, for sure!Golly, prayers for Megan--wasp stings are no fun!! Do you have vertigo? Ken has a couple of nasty cases of it in the past few years. The doctor has him take meclizine 12.5 mg (over-the-counter, where you find Dramamine), 1 or 2 caplets every 12 hours. He's to take it whether he feels dizzy or not, and it's working well for him.Worth asking your doctor about it!Ken is feeling better tonight, and will probably go back to work tomorrow. His chest is loosening up, and he sounds much better. Thank you for your well wishes for him!Well, think I'm gonna go veg in front of the TV for a bit. Good TV tonight! Prayers for everyone. The porch light is on, and both security systems are enabled. SED, everyone! God bless, and goodnight. I love all of you!!!♥♥Lynn♥♥♥♥Carolyn & Christy♥♥I ♥ us!!!(P.S.: Emma says, "WOOF!" :oP
Lynne2,so sorry about the rough dayat work....often I know yourdays have some rough spots...(( Hugs ♥))
glad Andy's Kubby is on the mend,and for the happy report from Jo;and a reasonably good day report from Janet...I like the Bob Evans part the most!Sandman is forgiven, Judie...and welcomed...Best Wishes that he brings Sweeeeeet Sleep to everyone...Prayers for Wellness ALL AroundGood Night, Very Precious Pals God Bless Us,Every One xo ♥
Getting late again!Good Health Prayers for Andy's Ken and Megan.Jo, I think you made great progress for that dentist appt!Lolly, your bird is beautiful. How did you get rid of the dumb comment robot?????Lynne, I don't think I could do your job~~~I have to change the channel on those SPCA type ads.Well if the sandman comes, I won't be back.So, Pleasant Feather Dreams ;>)
Had to think about your comment. LOL Then it finally dawned on me...duh!!!! Have no idea how I did it. Sorry!
Lolly, beautiful pictures. Fantastic bird.
Thanks Margy. I truly was bad today.Loretta...I can't watch those commercials either!
a Wood Thrush was heard per the MD birding site, near my old digs today! On the move north! Saw my first Catbird today!
Time to say good night as the sandperson has arrived in Fredericksburg. SED, everyone.
Hope you feel much better tomorrow, Megan and Ken.

good morning to all!today nashville begins to say goodbye to george jones. it will be broadcast over local tv. nashville is such an interesting place to live. JUDYE: sis, i'm kinda with everyone here. if you can get a hold of a live human being (good luck), i think that would be prudent at this point. this doesn't' make sense....given everything, it would be worrisome to me. and hopefully today you will have your truck!WASP STINGS ! oh no, MEGAN feel better. wasps scare me and always have....81 and sunny today. i might get a few things done this afternoon. right now, time to finish coffee and get the kid out of the bed. everyone; have a super day!
Belle just arrived. I can only see the feet of one eaglet at the top and the other at 3...Aha, the other one just moved to the middle. Look at how they can move around the nest!
Lolly, the painted bunting is very pretty! Thanks for the picture!2 eaglets standing in the nest! They look like they are enjoying the sunshine! So nice to see the sun.

They'll call back with an appt time.Sunny and up to 72 here today! Hope Megan is feeling well enough to work in her gardens.
Good morning all. Back form coffee and dog treats. Off to walmart dog food and cat litter LOL. OK cat food too and people food as well. Going to stop at Petco to make a Santa Wish List lOL. HAGD all
Good morning,It is an absolutely perfectly beautiful morning here. And I see the eaglets enjoying the morning sunshine too.
Happy May Day to all! I love the sunshine - need to dry off my deck so I can sweep with the leaf blower and put furniture in place. Think of Sharon and praying for her dr results and information.Had to chuckle at my cat lying on the deck falling asleep and a squirrel not more then 3 feet away from him gobbling up the sunflower seeds. No plans for the day - I have been looking at all the CVS goodies and remembering that in earlier years I didn't take any meds but an aspirin! AGE :( BBL
