Wahooooo! Another feather! I have a headdress!!Thanks, Steve, will call the others over!
Have read the morning comments while on the old thread,Lori is probably through with her interview now, but I bet she blew them away! I have all the confidence in the world that she is outstanding with the interview.Love you, Lori!Going to mow today. The sun has even come out. Yesterday we got the grand total of .35 inch of rain. Better than nothing, but would like more....please!
I am off to eat a bite and then out to work in the yard.Have a great day!
Oh, Sharon, I laughed when you blamed the cat! Annie has contributed much herself.
ok what is going on I just signed in on a wed thread and it is a new one also the first one listed as Wed go check it out I wonder if one should be deleted being today is Fri and this is a Fri thread but the other is wed and it is listed first HELP
LOLLY you and I are the only one hear What will the others pick to go on wed or Fri HMMMMM
Lolly has lead the way to here (Fri). We will all find our way I'm sure.Lolly - I'm sure the Rain Gods are working on a solution for you. Something will happen any day now.
Hello again everybody!
Have a great day!
ok now I just read the comment that you said that you saw both treads and we will use this one should have read first LOLLY
LOVE YOU AVATAR CA so stinkin cute
OK gonna go do something
the chicks I think are waiting to be feed just sitting there must be Hedgie picking at it and the other walked away from it Adult still sitting there at 2
ADULT in attic all three looked up at it
It s Friday not to write on Wednesday, who is on first? Wednesday...What confusion first thing in the morning!!!Beautiful here!I agree with LOLLY LORI must be done with interview and she must have ROCKED it!!! Check in LORI and let us know how much you dazzled them.Have not read back so I will go do so...Yoga and Scruteneering today for me and a walk...I do not think I will have time to ride my bicycle...Have to find the time...
Might go try to start the lawnmower, but I have not been able to do it before. Frustrating. I bought a key-start one, but it has quit working. Will did not like it, and he replaced it with another pull-start mower, but he is not mowing the grass, which is getting very tall. Not happy. The mower I bought is self-propelled. Will said that it propels itself too slowly. Well, that is a matter of opinion.
HELLO THERE EVERYONEWho got the fish or didn't one get delivered?Great news Sharon but I wish you had been notified First!Lori Lori - I bet you are now a registered LPN student! Sandi - enjoy Baltimore and pray you find your mom healthy and in good spirits! I may call you and Denny for a dinner date this coming week.Lolly is this Elvis weekend? Enjoy your trip to Solomon's Judie

Have a great time JudyE.A Mother's Day story (also partially explains why my ex is my ex).37 years ago Mom's Day was on a Sunday, May 9. I was 9 months & a few days pregnant(huge). At the church entrance they were giving out flowers to the Mom's attending mass. When they attempted to hand one to me my husband said, " she isn't a Mom yet, no flower for her." So I didn't get a flower. Twelve hours later I went into labor & my beautiful daughter was born early the next morning. Today is her birthday and she has made it all worthwhile, and given me a wonderful son-in-law & 3 beautiful grandchildren. Happy Birthday Meemers!
Good afternoon. I finally finished processing my photos from our trip to Savannah last weekend. These are from Savannah, Harris and Pinckney Wildlife Refuges.Savannah
Absolutely you are a beautiful, Mom, CarolAnne....thank you for sharing that...and yes, I understand why your exis your ex....!!!:(I know many people who are Wonderful Moms and have never borne a baby...some of my very very good friends...it is the Motheringnature that is often what mattersmost...and I sure don't mean to takeanything from of the tributesso well-deserved by our many Mothers hereMake sense? Sure Hope so ♥
I think I understand to stay on this thread and not the other one..Lolly!thanks for alert!I see we have Pealets, Peglets,Peaglets, and Rackets inhabitingthe Royal Sycamore these days....
Bob Quinn - Oh My!How fortunate to be able to see so much wildlife. And better still your awesome talent in capturing it all. Would not be able to pick a favorite.
Oh boy, I can't wait to go look....thanks Bob - in advanceI might have to wait until my next little work break ☺
Yes, we were fortunate to see such a variety of birds.
yep CA I can see why he is your X also and thanks for sharing your story had lunch and went to see the eagles and got a couple of pic the one was under the tower in the shade smart bird its 89° fells like 93°out right now Our nice days are gone back with the humidity again I did enjoy it when it was nice so I left this time of the day its hard to get good pic being the sun is high I guess better pic in the late afternoon or evening when sun is down in the sky somewhat I guess They were really mellow today no noise must have had lunch already I guess At first I didn't think they were there because of no noise then I did see the one on the bottom and the other in the corner of the tower sitting there in the sun now down like the other one under the tower
I don't think I posted this I was going to but then forgot Old age again Some may have seen it on facebook It was so funny and cute A lady said that her husband was yelling and telling her to grab her camera to take a picture of a bird that landed on their patio table a Black Oriole
Well when she got there Guess what
are you in suspense or not LOLHere it comes or maybe Ishouldleave you hangin
Oh she said she almost tripped on her way running to find and get the camera to take a picture of it
Bob, once again you have brought photos to us that are absolutely outstanding. I can't imagine seeing so many different species and it amazes me how you can get 2 different ones in the same snap. I am glad you didn't get too close to those alligators or crocodiles - what in the world were they anyhow!They made my toes curl - so many together on the shore.Thank you so much!
GOTTA go get Jordyn TTFN
♫ Here a thread ♪ there a thread ♫♫ ♪ EVERYWHERE a THREAD thread ♫ ♪
Nice way to leave us hangin' Judy. OFF WITH HER HEAD!
Good Afternoon Eagle Buds!!!!Can't wait to get home and see Bob's pics. It takes 10 or 15 minutes to get a site open on this sickly 'puter at Chelsea!!! If I had plenty of time to spare, I would call the Helpline and have them check it out!LUV CarolAnne's story!Haven't seen any critters here yet, but it's early.Finally did get pics of them in the Nook last night.Called U of MD Entomology to see if they are making new Cicada shirts for this year's brood. They had them for 2004. Answer is NO! BOO Red tape---need to have copyright permission (that can be done), but past marketing was done by Barnes & Noble & they don't want to sell this year!!! double Boo Later~~
Unbelievable!!! Just saw a brown lump under a front yard tree. Thought it might have been a large branch. THEN it moved and wiggled. Was a female turkey doing what looked like a sand bath! From the side of house came a huge colorful male!!!He didn't walk right up to her, but is close by in grass. He opened his tail a few times. Thanksgiving?? I wonder if she's in labor??!! Will watch even if I have to stay after hours!
How cool. Pictures?
I saw a wild turkey hen takinga dust/dirt bath last yearLoretta....helps them rid themselves ofmites and critters I hear....Raining hard here now in Martinsburgxo ♥
Well this still could be mating season I suppose...if the Gobbler was all puffed up and showing off !
Will the rain travel to Shepherdstown...hmmmm, last nightjust barely....guess we'll find out pretty soon
I didn't have the chance to ring up Linda from work but I just did now....got voice mail and said we are just hoping she is doing OK.So maybe we'll hear back from hertoday or soon
Well, there's the wind weather atNCTCmight hear some thunderand maybe see some rain
Thanks everyone for the confidence you have in me! The interview went very well. I won't know if I'm officially admitted for a week or two, but they gave me all kinds of things to get done, which seems like a good sign. I have to be fingerprinted, get a physical, get a criminal clearance, but I think it's a good sign they want me to do all that. I didn't say "like," didn't cross my legs or chew gum!
Thats wonderful news Lori -- you're IN! I'm sure of it!!
Thx, Margy, about the turkey tip. I thought it might be a delicing experience! Retired Park Ranger (from Cumberland!) who worked at Park told us that doves lay flat on ground with wings open to let the ants come and get the mites & lice!!!Anyway, she got up and gobbler followed her back into the shrubbery. I took pic of her "recess bed"!And got my work done!Have to send that rain to Lolly!BBL~~~
Wonderful Lori!Yes, sounds very promising for sure !Thanks Loretta, Delicing, that's it!I'll check the pictures in just a wee bit, just finished gazing upon Bob's Beautiful Photos also
that is, when you post it LOL ☺Hoping Lolly gets a look at thearmadillo in Bob's pictures...Wow, so glad Bob put labels on most of those birds....what a nature journey!That's the way to celebratea Birthday !!!ttfn, need to take care of somechores outside the home...xo Good Evening Wishes to Every One ! and Happy Friday !xo ♥
Sounds VERY promising Lori!
Margy, so sorry to announce that there is no sign at all of New England Aster seed germination :(
I didn't leave yet....raining too hard here right now....Understand, Lynne2:I have tried to separate outtwo stalks for the Future Froggy Garden at Jewels's place, but not sure they are going to thrive..."one of these days" we'll get themgoing at your place too !My stalks right now are about 2 feet tall and I must get a trellis soon !
Well the rain has moved from west to east, to the nest now...going to dodge the drops between here and the car and get a move on"See Ya' Later " Pals
RE : aster seeds/growthAster seeds are one of the kinds that need "cold stratification" in order to grow. Easiest way is a very slightly damp paper towel & the seeds in a sealed plastic bag or container & placed in your frig for 3 to 6 months.Don't know if this was tried.
So what's with the Wed thread on a Friday??? lol. I've had a weird enough day as it is...First client came in, 8 a.m. mind you, had taken a pain pill and just finished a glass of wine...Then later there was a mix up and they double booked me.... I'm good, but come on, lol. Now this????I've got my Friday afternoon lazies going on....watching the 5 p.m. news....make dinner in a bit. I was all motivated earlier...not so much now..... Pickedd up a couple baskets of flowers...one for my oldest daughter and one for my neighbor on Sunday. All right, catch ya'll in a bit!
btw, i don't care that she drank wine @ 8 a.m. .... but it was just odd.... admitting it to me in addition to taking the pain pill with it...adn she's a nurse.... just concerns me....
CA...yep I knew that and I tried it. But I only did my in the frig for 3 weeks. SOme of the online info said that could be enough, but it seems that it wasn't :(
Oh Janet. That is scary. She probably thinks she knows how to handle it because she IS a nurse.
Lynne2 - if it was a weed it would need no help at all. LOLHope it works next time.
Lori - I am doing the happy dance for you! Very Very pleased with your homework assignments and praying it means that you are 'IN' the door!I'm sure your mom will think this is the best Mothers Day gift ever! ♥
Shep in the nest with food to share.....
My goodness. Have returned to find Steve has provided a fresh thread and JudyE has yet another feather.Well, now I see I am not sure which thread is on first and which thread is on second -- I think I'm on third.Visit to Solomon's was very nice. I think we both want to make a commitment but the biggest obstacle will be leaving behind 30 years of involvement in this area. We will continue to talk. The area is really lovely as is the campus and the cottage we prefer.Lori, congratulations on the interview. You must know that with the information they want, they are simply making sure you are healthy and law-abiding. Then the offer will come. Congratulations!Okay, tired so headed to put my feets up. If I do not return, the Sandperson has agreed to begin rounds at 11pm.
Hi all. Posting from the car on the way to moms using Denny's phone. Not sure if this post will make it to the blog. Jo please call. Would love to get together for dinner. Our turn to buy.Lori congrats interview sounds very encouraging.Can't wait to see Bobs new photos.Later.
Just trying to get signed on as me and then check the box.
I am home from a great day and I guess I could let you off the hook It was a OREO COOKIE that her husband left on top of the table FUNNY HUH Worth the wait I
YEAH on a good interview LORI we knew you could do it
Yes, Sandi-Dennis, it posted !Enjoy your week-end at your Mom'sNice post, Judie...geeze, more decisions to make !But Best Wishes with the Options !
I can only say this about my NE Asters...I received them from James as a school project, three years ago, they were littlestalks kind of scrunched up in potting soil in a little pot....I transplanted them to here, andthey grew like Jack's Beanstalk!I'll try to germinate some likeat the end of this growing seasonand see what happens !Basically, it IS a "Weed-Wildflower" I guess but I am not sure how the teachergot hers started and where her seeds came from.I'm not much help, am I ??
And then Sandi became Dennisjust like!
This is a picture on facebook news page in Redding a eagle was found dead in parking lot fighting in sky and fell so sad KRCR News Channel 7Like This Page · 4 hours ago BREAKING: Redding Animal Regulation confirms they have picked up a deceased bald eagle from a parking lot on Park Marina Drive in Redding.

This is to cute from FB and the Great Backyard Bird count This wren was so desperate to find a nesting place, he and his mate found a way into my dinning room and made themselves at home.

We have really had the rain and with storm like conditions. I was beside myself with worry until a few minutes ago as Scar was in the house but Marvelous Marvin was outside somewhere and would not come in when we called and called and called. Finally he walked up to the back door and Michael saw him - Mystery is - he is hardly wet - he couldn't have been in the grass because his low hanging belly is dry! I am just thankful he is in - especially because he is the one who hides when he hears thunder. If it isn't kids - it's cats! lol
I am now going to sign off. Ican't tell if an adult is in the nest with our juvies or not. Guess Not.Judie -- glad you had good visit - remember Change is Good ♥Good night to everyone and God Bless you and your with all good things.I love us ♥

Judy we have had a wren's nest on my kitchen window sill (outside!) that the wrens have used twice. Also, this year we found a wren's nest in the garage. Thank goodness no sign of eggs. We can not leave the door open and Annie sleeps in the garage at night.
I am heading to the shower. I get my do done tomorrow before we leave for Elvis!Night all! SED!!

Yet it helps if the area you are moving to is where you want to be...You will get re-established again I am sure.Tomorrow Dragon Boating in the morning, Garden Fest at noon and yoga in the afternoon unless I am too exhausted by then in which case it will be a nap!!!
Good Saturday morning everyone.Hope you can make it a great one.

Good morning. Chuck Bell says some of you are getting raindrops -- here also.Checked on all the critters and everyone seems fine. Shamrock and Hedgie looking over their domain and dreaming of launch day I guess. I see Studmuffin Larry may have some competition from Studmuffin Murdock. As The Beach Turns! Very nice of him to get your grass mowed, Paula. I think we should nominate Hoda for some Guinness Book of Records recognition -- the most activities in a single week. Happy dragon boating this morning.Paula, Solomon's visit was very nice. Seems we will likely begin to seriously discuss making a commitment. Good part is if we provide a deposit we can still say no if we are not ready to move. Sandi have a nice day with the Balt. family.Jo, really glad Marvelous Marvin appeared. Experienced that panic and fear many many times.Shirley, did Hunter's team win the game?Sharon, will mark the 22nd on my calendar. Glad you have a date.Lolly, have fun.BBL

And, he looked so handsome...dress slacks, dress shirt and tie. What is amusing is he has always liked to dress up! He is always handsome at church, Well, he is always handsome!Ok, gotta run! Have a great day. Oh and Judie....I will go along with you on Hoda's nomination!!
Good morning on this damp wet dayNo rain here now - Thankful the grass was cut yesterday. Sure hope all my plants don't get root rot from all the rain! No special plans for today - Mass this evening. Tomorrow afternoon the family will gather for Mother's Day brunch. We are going to the Inn up in Braddock - Reservations for 12! Jenny needs to work :(
Good Morning Eagle Palsfirst Adult Eagle that I've seen in the nest since daybreaknot that I was able to watchthis whole timeI think it's ... I don't know for sure !
I'm thinking it is Belle,seems like she has the motheringwant to tent and cuddle instinct going on
Sounds nice, dinner for a dozenSunday Jo...wish Jenny could be there also
12 hrs ago Linda was on FB helping to ID a bird for Glo. Perhaps shewill come visit us today.Miss her and hope all is well ♥
I was watching the adult and with the scar on the beak - it's our Belle. She was digging up the wet floor of the nest..... As soon as she finished one area the one juvie laid right down on the dryness. The other juvie grabbed the end of a stick that Belle was moving! lolNo one yet has seen any food brought in.
Thanks Jo on the Linda update.....that should mean she is OK if on Facebook with a fellow Momster....I didn't see food brought in either but really not able towatch here much from work today
Hoping also of course with you, Joabout Linda, that all is well, that's prettymuch what my message was on heranswering machine
Oh wow look away for a minute.....and something nice to eat was brought inthe adult is test driving it first ☺
There is an adult in the nest now with food..
whatever it was.....must been tasty and they all musthave been hungry
Finally the 2nd juvie cam down from the noon position. I was worriedfor awhile........!
HELLO home for lunch and see its raining and a adult just landed
wow really windy and sideways rain
both chicks are laying lo and I think it Belle in the nest
one of the chicks is trying to get under her
I think that was hail but being I am not up there I don't know but it seems to be over now
It really got calm at the nest think I will go look at radar for the area Belle seems to be looking at something all around stretching her neck
Everything is so green on the ground and now those vines seem to be growing around the nest again So happy we don't have that old branch like we did last year Remember that?
Happy Saturday, Eagle Buds.Sounds like rain on the nest ~~the two peaglets and a parent getting a bath.Weather is pleasant here~~need to do some work outside, like collect and dispose of Maple Keys!!!!Those trees should be put on invasive species list!!!!Got about 40 turkey pictures to sort through from yesterday's Show!Have a great day~~~~☺ ♥
now Belle sort of a small one mumbrella but small open wings slightly
funny looked at my map shows the rain on the radar in that area but the forecast just says cloudy WRONG LOL HELLO LORETTA Thought I was all alone but I see you hear ok gotta go to work
OMG! OMG! OMG! I just received the most awesome gift in the mail. My mail lady came up the drive and honked. I went out and she handed me this long box. She said it sounds funny. I told her I had not ordered anything, and yes it made a strange noise. I said let's open it right now and she had scissors. So, I shared the moment with Penny, our mail lady. Inside was a rain stick...you know the kind that sounds like rain when you turn it upside down. It is beautifully decorated with bright colors AND a Bald Eagle!!! Inside was a simple note "Make ER Rain....Hugs..CarolAnne" Well, CarolAnne you have made my day, my week, my everything! I am grinning from ear to ear! THANK YOU!!!! I love it and it will always be treasured. (And hopefully it will make er rain!!I LOVE US!!!
LOLLY - happy to make you smile.If the instructions weren't included here they are:Get naked, go outside where you want the rain to fall, dance the TX Two -step while shaking the rain stick. Guaranteed to make something happen!:O)
WOW, Lolly!!At first vit sounded like box of roses for Mother's Day!!! How wonderful of CarolAnne! Wonder where she found that?Yes, JudyE, we can hear the rain up there. Our friends in Paw Paw, WV said they are having off & on showers!Lolly, film before 11!!!!
LOL Hmmmmm....not sure of the naked part but we have thought that might do it! :)Yes, CarolAnne it made me smile and will continue to do so. That is what this blog is all about. The most wonderful, thoughtful, caring eagle lovers ever!!!
Reading the instructions once again. Jack says he can not do the Texas Two Step as he does not dance. Also, I am a little concerned about what will happen. Probably men in white coats will come and get us and haul us away!!
shift change coming up,Jewels and her 4-12 pals are here...time to sign off pretty soonso I better do it now !Love that Rain Stick Story, Lolly and CarolAnne...xo Take care all, will write more from home .... xo ♥
Lolly. (Jack can just do the shuffle. You know, just shuffle his feet) - maybe a crowd will gather and it will be like a parade. We all know it will rain on a parade. Mission accomplished.
Off to MassHopefully in between the down pours we have had most of the afternoon.BBL
I had a minute or two and just read back - Yepper - a good shake on a rain stick just might do the trick!CarolAnne you are so thoughtful!Lolly - put your feather headdress on,take your shoes off andShake it Shake it Oh and don't forget to have your umbrella near by!lol Love it!
Hi,We just had a downpour here. Thought I might take off and buy something for Hunter to give to Kathryn for Mother's Day. She took him to the Marine Corps Museum today, and so I can't take him along. Got really frustrated last night on the way home from the baseball game. I had a really hard time seeing in the pouring rain because a woman had put some stuff on my windshield. Some kind of rain shield, she said. Yuck, it made a smeary mess, and I had to stop and buy window cleaner and paper towels to wash the windshield.
We could probably afford to send a little bit of rain Lolly's way. Grass is out of control. Everything is lush and green.
Quick visit.I see CarolAnne is encouraging Lolly and Jack to engage in random acts of nakedness while dancing with reckless public abandon.CarolAnne has done a very nice momster gift for Lolly. Happy rain dancing Lolly and Jack.Shirley, the woman who grundged up your windshield? She's not a friend is she? Hope you found something nice for Hunter to give to Kathryn.Heavy rain here for about 20 minutes. Sending it on to Texas.Spicy chicken stir fry tonight. Off to prep the chicken -- a job I do not enjoy.BBL
