Wahooooo! Another feather! I have a headdress!!

Thanks, Steve, will call the others over!

Lolly said...

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!

Lolly said...

I am off to eat a bite and then out to work in the yard.

Have a great day!

Lolly said...

Oh, Sharon, I laughed when you blamed the cat! Annie has contributed much herself.

JudyE said...

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

JudyE said...

LOLLY you and I are the only one hear What will the others pick to go on wed or Fri HMMMMM

CarolAnne said...

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.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Hello again everybody!

CarolAnne said...

JudyE said...

FISH DELIVERY

JudyE said...

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

JudyE said...

ADULT in attic all three looked up at it

Hoda said...

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...

stronghunter said...

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.

Mema Jo said...

HELLO THERE EVERYONE

Who 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

stronghunter said...

That is a big fish.

JudyE said...

Hoda said...

OK good news on the approval SHAR! Sometimes even professionals lack discretion...she probably thought she was being helpful.

Well I had better get a move on even though I am still sipping tea. I will go get ready for the activity today and I hope the rain holds off till after Dragon BOat tomorrow and Garden Fest tomorrow...it is welcome to come on Sunday...Sorry LOLLY for the R word.

JudyE said...

Mema Jo said...

JudyE said...

POOF BELLE

CarolAnne said...

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!

Bob Quinn said...

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

magpie said...

Absolutely you are a beautiful, Mom, CarolAnne....thank you for sharing that...
and yes, I understand why your ex
is 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 Mothering
nature that is often what matters
most...

and I sure don't mean to take
anything from of the tributes
so well-deserved by our many Mothers here

Make sense? Sure Hope so ♥

magpie said...

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 inhabiting
the Royal Sycamore these days....

CarolAnne said...

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.

magpie said...

Oh boy, I can't wait to go look....
thanks Bob -
in advance
I might have to wait until
my next little work break ☺

Bob Quinn said...

Yes, we were fortunate to see such a variety of birds.

JudyE said...

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

JudyE said...

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

JudyE said...

Well when she got there Guess what

JudyE said...

.

JudyE said...

are you in suspense or not LOL

Here it comes

or

maybe
I
should
leave
you
hangin

JudyE said...

MTBRL

JudyE said...



Oh she said she almost tripped on her way running to find and get the camera to take a picture of it

Mema Jo said...

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!

JudyE said...

GOTTA go get Jordyn TTFN

Nice way to leave us hangin' Judy. OFF WITH HER HEAD!

NatureNut said...

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~~

NatureNut said...

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!

CarolAnne said...

How cool. Pictures?

magpie said...

I saw a wild turkey hen taking
a dust/dirt bath last year
Loretta....
helps them rid themselves of
mites and critters I hear....

Raining hard here now in Martinsburg

xo ♥

magpie said...

Well this still could be mating season I suppose...if the Gobbler was all puffed up and showing off !

magpie said...

Will the rain travel to Shepherdstown...hmmmm, last night
just barely....
guess we'll find out pretty soon

magpie said...

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 her
today or soon

magpie said...

Well, there's the wind weather at
NCTC
might hear some thunder
and maybe see some rain

Lori said...

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!

CarolAnne said...

Thats wonderful news Lori -- you're IN! I'm sure of it!!

NatureNut said...

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~~~

magpie said...

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

magpie said...

that is, when you post it LOL ☺

Hoping Lolly gets a look at the
armadillo in Bob's pictures...

Wow, so glad Bob put labels on most of those birds....
what a nature journey!
That's the way to celebrate
a Birthday !!!

ttfn, need to take care of some
chores outside the home...
xo Good Evening Wishes to
Every One !

and Happy Friday !
xo ♥

Lynne2 said...

Sounds VERY promising Lori!

Lynne2 said...

Margy, so sorry to announce that there is no sign at all of New England Aster seed germination :(

magpie said...

I didn't leave yet....raining too hard here right now....

Understand, Lynne2:
I have tried to separate out
two 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 them
going at your place too !

My stalks right now are about 2 feet tall and I must get a trellis soon !

magpie said...

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

CarolAnne said...

RE : aster seeds/growth
Aster 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.

Janet said...

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!

Janet said...

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....

Lynne2 said...

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 :(

Lynne2 said...

Oh Janet. That is scary. She probably thinks she knows how to handle it because she IS a nurse.

CarolAnne said...

Lynne2 - if it was a weed it would need no help at all. LOL

Hope it works next time.

Mema Jo said...

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! ♥

Mema Jo said...

Shep in the nest with food to share.....

Judie said...

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.

Dennis Roberts said...

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.

Sandi said...

Sandi said...

Just trying to get signed on as me and then check the box.

JudyE said...

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

JudyE said...

YEAH on a good interview LORI we knew you could do it

magpie said...

Yes, Sandi-Dennis, it posted !
Enjoy your week-end at your Mom's

Nice post, Judie...geeze, more decisions to make !
But Best Wishes with the Options !

magpie said...

I can only say this about my NE Asters...I received them from
James as a school project, three years ago, they were little
stalks kind of scrunched up in
potting soil in a little pot....
I transplanted them to here, and
they grew like Jack's Beanstalk!
I'll try to germinate some like
at the end of this growing season
and see what happens !

Basically, it IS a
"Weed-Wildflower" I guess but I am not sure how the teacher
got hers started and where her seeds came from.
I'm not much help, am I ??

magpie said...

And then Sandi became Dennis
just like

We're told two eagles got into a fight, and the eagle simply fell from the sky. We're working to get more details about what happened, and the identity of the eagle. More starting tonight at 5pm.

Hello. Max & Teresa are visiting and we're spending time with the little guy. He'll start t-ball soon and won't get to come up too often before school starts again.

Lori, things sound good for your approval. Best wishes.

Sharon,so glad you got your approval. Now you can get some good results. Prayers and hugs.

Must say goodnight before Blue Bloods. Thinking of Lynn.
God bless

JudyE said...

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. I thought they would never leave! Watch em'! They look for open doors.

Patricia McKenna Carolina wrens - famous for nesting in odd places, saw an article/blog on them nesting on a toilet tank when a window was left open, the occupants of the house didn't use that bathroom until the babies had fledged. If you can hang a planter outside if you have an overhang and they will nest in it.

Mema Jo said...

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. I
can't tell if an adult is in the nest with our juvies or not. Guess Not.

Judie how was the trip to soloman,s?

Lolly said...

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.

Sorry I must have missed you all if LOLLY in Texas has signed off too.

Good busy day.

Congratulations LORI you are IN!

C/A I hope you did not wait too long before you made that chap history!!! I thought to myself HOW RUDE!!!

I can not seem to calm my hunger...I have to sit down for a meal and not eat on the run...
Next week less to do after Tuesday.

I will go get supper and PAULA I am glad you made a safe trip.

JUDIE it is tough to pack it in and relocate. 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!!!

CarolAnne said...

Good Saturday morning everyone.
Hope you can make it a great one.

Good Saturday morning my eagle friends. Keeping it short b/c i'm posting w/ my kindle and i hate this virtual keyboard.

Judie said...

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.

Good morning! Just time to say HI and then I gotta get busy! Clean house, do done, and then off for Elvis!!

Just saw on fb where Joseph got a #1 division on his UIL trombone solo. Proud of that boy!! 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 day
No 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.

Good Morning Eagle Pals

first Adult
Eagle that I've seen in
the nest since daybreak
not that I was able to watch
this whole time

I think it's ... I don't know for sure !

magpie said...

I'm thinking it is Belle,seems like she has the mothering
want to tent and cuddle instinct going on

magpie said...

Sounds nice, dinner for a dozen
Sunday Jo...
wish Jenny could be there also

Mema Jo said...

12 hrs ago Linda was on FB helping to ID a bird for Glo. Perhaps she
will come visit us today.
Miss her and hope all is well ♥

Mema Jo said...

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! lol

No one yet has seen any food brought in.

magpie said...

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 to
watch here much from work today

magpie said...

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

I think that was hail but being I am not up there I don't know but it seems to be over now

JudyE said...

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

JudyE said...

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?

NatureNut said...

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~~~~☺ ♥

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

HELLO LORETTA Thought I was all alone but I see you hear ok gotta go to work

Lolly said...

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)

NatureNut said...

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!!!!

Lolly said...

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!!!

Lolly said...

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!!

magpie said...

shift change coming up,
Jewels and her 4-12 pals are here...
time to sign off pretty soon

so I better do it now !

Love that Rain Stick Story,
Lolly and CarolAnne...

xo Take care all, will write more from home .... xo ♥

CarolAnne said...

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.

Lynne2 said...

ROFLMBO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mema Jo said...

Hopefully in between the down pours we have had most of the afternoon.

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 and
Shake it Shake it
Oh and don't forget to have your umbrella near by!

lol Love it!

stronghunter said...

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.

stronghunter said...

We could probably afford to send a little bit of rain Lolly's way. Grass is out of control. Everything is lush and green.

Judie said...

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.

Jewels said...

Love the rain stick story!!!!! Mom gave me a rain stick many years ago.
Hello everyone, Sorry I have been vacant on the blog. Thanks for all of Mom's wonderful Heavenly birthday wishes. SHe definitely was and still is a very important part of our lives.
Working tonight, on Police.
Sun is shineing for now. But I do belive we will get more rain in a while. No shaking the stick here!!
Love to all

PA Nana said...

ROFLMBO, Lolly & CarolAnne.

Hope you get rain, Lolly, without disrobing. That would set the neighborhood gossiping.

Loretta, thanks for naming those nasty maple thingies. They sure make a mess. Jim pulls enough to start a forest.

Max is talking my ear off while his mom plays the flute. Love to hear it again.

Will try to get back to say goodnight.

magpie said...
