Morning, all!

I see 2 eaglets being fed...I presume by Belle

paula eagleholic said...

Welcome home Steve. Traveling is fun, but it's always good to get home to your own Bed!

paula eagleholic said...

Boy our eaglets look great!

Lolly said...

Good morning! Heading out of Dodge. Hope we have a home to come home to as well as a garden. Severe storms a comin....wind, rain, hail...possible threat of tornados. We are in an orange area.

Unbelievable amount of twigs and branches on the ground this morning from the wind last night. Have already been out cleaning up.

I will be in communication...have phone, ipad, and computer.

Prayers for Oklahoma!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Wow up on the bottom of the stump.

paula eagleholic said...

Have fun, Lolly!

paula eagleholic said...

Think parent departed...still see part of a fish at the noon spot.

CarolAnne said...

paula eagleholic said...

Heading out to mow...have the cam up, one plotzed at 10, the other perched at the 12 spot.

Lolly said...

We are on the road again! Just before leaving found a large limb broken off a redbud. Not good. We have a big mess to clean up when we return. Do not mind as long as I have my house!

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning All
Lolly stay safe and here is to coming home to your well standing house.

Just signed in and want to thank you Steve for the new thread. On FB your breakfast at camp looked delicious.

Paul, our juvies are doing very well but I'm not so sure our nest is going to make it another year without some serious nestorations.

Mema Jo said...

Lots of graduations scheduled - My last grandchild will be one of them.
I've made it through 12 HS grads - Can't believe they are all finished HS.

I need to go to last thread and read morning remarks.

Prayers for all tornado victims ♥

stronghunter said...

Enjoy your trip, Lolly.

stronghunter said...

Congrats on all of the graduating grandkids, Jo.

Lolly said...

Interesting...a lot of schools are dismissing early. Monitoring the radar and news as we travel.

paula eagleholic said...

It has warmed up quickly here, supposed to be 90 ° today...it's close to it.

Bet the eaglets are panting today :)

paula eagleholic said...

Hear some chirping...probably want Mom to shade them :)

Lolly said...

In contact with Laurel. She has received notice to be on alert. She and Joseph are in the basement but Joey and Jacob are not.

JudyE said...

Home for lunch and find a new thread


THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD STEVE

and I loved you pic on FB

JudyE said...

I just tried to call June knowing this is her day off and I asked and begged her to please let me know what I have done to be cut of from her life I don't know what else to do I guess if I don't here from here I should just give up and maybe one day she will call

paula eagleholic said...

Eaglets really calling out now...looking up into the sycamore.

JudyE said...

our eaglet making lots of noises anyone else hearing it Is that the eaglets sounds different like stress

JudyE said...

HI PAULA I see you hear it tooo hungry I guess

JudyE said...

they almost sound like little squeaky toys there and now they are quite

Lolly said...

Margy, thinking of you! The roadside and fields are blanketed in red and yellow wildflowers. Awesome!

paula eagleholic said...

The cam appears to be down...

paula eagleholic said...

cam is still down...still cam too

Mema Jo said...

Too late to notify Steve of the 2 cams being down
Live Eagle Cam notifies that they are checking on it.

Lolly said...

We are here, set up and off to a winery! Laurel says weather has passed, nice and cool. .

Sandi said...

Afternoon all! Home to find a new thread but no live cam!! Oh dear! Or should I say "oh deer," in light of C/A's post from her son! C/A, glad to hear that your son was not damaged!

I was supposed to have my Jeep washed and waxed and shampooed and vacuumed and shined and spiffed up today. But it was drizzling as i drove to work this morning and the guy called school and said he didn't want to come an pick it up and clean it on a day when it might rain. I appreciated that! New date is Friday. It hasn't been cleaned inside and out (other than when it rains) in about 5 years! I take care of the engine but really am not vain at all about the body. As long as it5 gets me where I want to go, I'm good!

Lolly, stay safe - not sure I would be able to leave my home under those conditions and have a good time wherever I was going. I think I would just worry - that's why we didn't evacuate during the hurricane.

paula eagleholic said...

I sent an email to OD about the cam..they are looking into it

paula eagleholic said...

Oh, wine, Sounds good Lolly!

The still cam is back on, but no live feed yet. I see Belle in the nest.

paula eagleholic said...

CA, glad it was just the windshield!

My oh my, where did the day go???

Hoda said...

Welcome home STEVE. Thank you for the new thread.

:( cam down reports PAULA and JO.

Be safe LOLLY. Don't understand why JOEY and JACOB are not down in the basement also???!!!

Windy day here. Got a lot done!
Meeting errands, ticket is paid. They laughed at City Hall as many were issued tickets for assuming that there is no need to feed the meters on Victoria Day weekend. Only Sunday and Monday not Saturday. I can not say it was my excuse though!!!

Thunder storms later tonight...after yoga...I bought some Arugula and some chervil. I love arugula in salads and the plant will grow. I do not know chervil but wanted to rescue it. I bought one and got one free and they were going to throw the chervil out...so I did rescue it.It needs lots of TLS and I started by fertilizing the earth in a pot and watered it well and then planted it in a bigger pot after loosening its roots. I hope it makes out alright...

Hoda said...

OH C/A I agree with PAULA I am glad it was just the windshield. Glad son is alright. I had a deer attack my car once. It butted the side door as I drove rather slowly and she did not like the eye contact that happened. It surbvived I had a huge dent and went on my way!!!
Forestry told me to stop phoning as I was worried I had caused it some damage they went out looking for a week and did not find anything so they said it was safe to assume it was OK.

Lori said...

LOLLY, glad you're there and at a winery, too! Have a great time. Good news from Laurel that weather is cleared up!

HODA, bless you for saving the chervil - hope it works! No more tickets! :)

PAULA, glad you got your mowing done.

I was going to spray weeds today, but too hot!

JO, congrats on all the grandkids graduating! Great achievement!

JudyE said...

Hello home from work and my STILL is working it seems

JudyE said...

adult in the nest can't tell who only see half a tail

JudyE said...

I see they put a message under the live feed but the Still is working

Mema Jo said...

Lori - The achievement/challenge was just to live that long lol

JudyE said...

STILL looks to be down black screen with message in top left My IP address 173.10.142.134 dern it

Mema Jo said...

Still cam just froze for me.

Hoda said...

LORI I do not understand no more tickets in context of the chervil?

Oh life is a challenge right now I am engaged in back and forth emails for the Kootenay Spirit Festival.

Mema Jo said...

Still cam back up

JudyE said...

I see still is back

Hoda said...

How stormy is it back east? Is it stormy?
Is this why the cam is down?

JudyE said...

oops I see JO posted it when it came back should read before I post I am working on my You Tube channel doing Tags Now I know why they wanted you to tag it can be sorted by tags and off course I didn't do most in tags just what youtube did on it own Wow what a pain but I have had fun looking at some of the old video of the nest over the past years I am up to 1-12-12 now

JudyE said...

HODA My weather app shows partly cloudy and on the maps nothing on radar

Hoda said...

Thank you JUDYE...enjoy the tags on youtube.

Lolly said...

Laurel and Joseph 's classrooms are in the basement of the middle school. Jacob's classroom is not and do not know about Joey's.

Went to a winery, tasted, then sat outside with a glass. :). Back at the trailer now, getting ready to grill steaks. Talked with a neighbor. We just had a thunder storm and a little less than an inch of rain. C/A.... I am really worried about that rain stick! :). Working too well!

JudyE said...

LOLLY maybe you need to do a incantation on the stick some kind of spell to slow the process down LOL

JudyE said...

today on the news they announced that the two house that were on each side of the house that had the sink hole to be demolished also the ground around the house is to unstable and the other house are vulnerable now

JudyE said...

we got lots of boom boom and dark clouds but that was it just a tease no wetness so far Its our summer storm pattern setting up already seabreezes come ashore and hit the hot air and BOOM storms You usually can set your clock to it all summer but the center of the state is hotter than us they call it the spine of the state and the storm always go there like Tampa to Lakeland Angie dislike living there when she did

Hoda said...

Power off! No Internet
No wifi
Using 3G to get on here.
No worry if I don't come back on again tonight.
Storm seems 4 hours early.
I love US

CarolAnne said...

Evening all;
LOLLY - put your clothes back on, lay the stick down and back away slowly!

SANDI - son has several Jeeps. All used for mudrunning. Was driving the Saturn when he encountered deer. Said he would have been pissed(his word) if it was one of his Jeeps. LOL

Take care all.

JudyE said...

ROFLMAO CA

paula eagleholic said...

They have lowered the number of deaths from the tornado in OK, that is good news at least. The destruction is just unbelieveable.

Heading to see my sweetie tonight, he is heading for the beach tomorrow night.

JudyE said...

one of the eaglets is looking up at the cam mom must be up there now over to the landing pad looking up at a angle

Sandi said...

Have been working on a student's IEP all evening - DONE!! Thats 3 down (2 last week) and one more to go this week. next Tuesday I have 2 IEP meetings and Wednesday I have another 2. Then I will be finished writing IEPs for this school year!!! IEP writing is less time consuming than paper grading and lesson planning, but it still gets old!! And writing IEPs this late in the school year is torture!!

OK, off to soak in the bathtub and do a little reading! Goodnight all!!

Paula, no beach for you this weekend??

Lori said...

HODA, they weren't in the same context...just an added thought about not getting another ticket. :) Sorry for confusion.

SANDI, great for YOU on getting your IEP's done!

Have to check and see if cam is back up.

Going to bed soon...haven't been able to get out of that habit, though I don't go to bed as early as I used to.

Goodnight all. SED!

CarolAnne said...

LOLLY,
Upon further research, if previous advice does not stop the rain, chant Finite Incantatem.(courtesy of Harry Potter -A Slytherin in Red and Gold Chapter 8: Practical Lessons.)
:o)

Mema Jo said...

I know it will e another hr or more before Sandman comes around BUT I am going to close down for the day. I'm sure he'll throw the sleepy dust at me.

Good night to all and please stay safe! ♥

stronghunter said...

Hi--Watching DWTS finals.

Good to see that Lolly and Jack are in Fredericksburg, Texas. Fine town, I am sure.

Janet said...

good evening to all. had some nasty wind earlier today; anticipating some storms tonight. blach.

my oldest was driving home today and a gust of wind came up and blew a tree over in front of the car directly in front of her! its one of those first you say it then you do it moments....thankfully noone was hurt. the car in front of her did hit the tree (it went completely across the road)....but not a lot of damage....chelsea said she missed his bumper by about 2 inches.

on the other hand....i decided to take the wagon (ford focus wagon) thru the car wash and it popped the side mirror off my car! thankfully tom put it back on!

took seven to the vet...5.25 lbs of puppy!

i posted some pix on my blog...so if you want to check in, esp those not on face book, feel free.

hope everyone has had a good day...getting into a routine aroudn here again.....a new one with a puppy.....a very busy puppy! lol

hugs, light, love and smiles to all....keeping all in the storms path close in my heart and thought....SED

Lolly said...

CA...... Laughed so much I got tears in my eyes! We are BIG Harry Potter fans, will follow that lesson.

A great day....house did not blow away, hail did not destroy gardens nor roof, lawn got watered naturally, and we are COOL sitting outside in Central Texas ! Life could not be better!

Lolly said...

We have retreated inside. Too cool! Do not know what we are doing tomorrow but I do know it will be leisurely!! Probably visit the Wildseed Farm.

Hoda said...

C/A I love your advice to LOLLY!!!

Our big wind storm with rain added uprooted a tree four blocks away and it caused the power outage and I am not sure why the internet went out.

Both are back on now.

I went to a Peruviaqn Shamanic rituals of the Four Directions as part of the Yoga practice tonight. It was very powerful and the winds have died down. I am not taking credit that it was the action of our group or any thing like that. I just felt better.

LOLLY very good news that no damage to Hawkwood. Blessings.

PAULA even better news at the lowering of the death count in OKC. God Bless them all. I have to go read the news.

Am in for the night and I had brought in the flower pots but took them back out again as I think the flat is too warm for them. I have the newly potted ones in still for the night probably. Will put them out tomorrow.

I have to go see if the cam is back up JUDYE reported nest activity so we must have at least one cam up.

Lolly said...

Time for bed here, we are pooped! Jack is snoring on the sofa. :)

Good night all! SED

Hoda said...

Lots of rain here...
Having a hot cup of tea. I am off honey!!! This is my third day and I am having withdrawal symptoms no question about it.It does not help that I have 3kg of honey sitting in the cuboard!!! I put it in the top shelf where I can not reach it till I get a step ladder. It is working three days and counting. My goal is to go for a month without honey!!! I do not use sugar and I will permit myslef maple syrup if I become desperate!!!

Hoda said...

Goodnight

PRAYERS♥

stronghunter said...

Want to say good night to everyone. Really time for me to call it quits for the evening. Guess the sandperson skipped Fredericksburg tonight.

SED.

Sandi said...

Good Wednesday morning my eagle friends!

Already 70 degrees here in Bethany and going up into the 80s today - wish I could be on a tennis court instead of in a classroom with no windows! But it's all good - only 16 more teaching days and 17 more total days left in this school year!

Today is Sharon's MRI, right??? Praying for great news, Shar!!

Make it a good one!

magpie said...

Good Morning, Eagle Pals...

Special Positive Thoughts for
Sharon today...as Sandi said, I think this IS the day for the MRI.

And Best Wishes to Every One,
for a Very Good Day.

xo ♥

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eaglebudlets

Its my Friday

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

This is my MRI day. It is at 12 noon.

Lori said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds!

SHARON, hoping for great news today with your MRI!

HODA, congrats on your days without honey! Maple sugar if you're desperate sounds yummy!

LOLLY, have a great day, especially if you visit the wildseed farm. That sounds so fun! Glad you're having a great time!

Good Morning, MARGY, SANDI, JUDYE and the rest of the early birds to follow!

SANDI, going to be warm here today, too, with a slight chance of scattered thunderstorms. It's already humid and the weeds are still too wet to spray.

JANET, ADORABLE puppy!!!! Too cute.

Have a good day everyone with love, light, smiles and JOY!

Lori said...


Live cam still has announcement that it is still down....dang.

Ms Bookworm said...

Good Morning, T-Bird!
(...and everyone else, too!)

Have been taking the machete to the checkbook this morning, paying some bills that are due. Thought I'd drop in here early, since I didn't make it here last night.

Will be praying and thinking of Shar today, as she has the MRI done. Will be waiting to hear some good news!

Jo, that's amazing that all your grandkids have made it through high school--time flies when we're having fun, doesn't it?!

Lolly, so glad to hear that you haven't had any damage to your house! Have been watching the news coverage of Oklahoma, and can't really imagine having to deal with that kind of destruction! Cleanup is certainly going to take a while.
Prayers for Oklahoma!

Hoda, I'm glad the winds have died down in your area. Hope the rain slows down too!

Janet, Seven is a real cutie! Love the pictures!

Well, better go get some breakfast and some coffee! Will check back in later. HAGD, everyone!
I ♥ us!!!

Judie said...

Good morning.

Need to try to read back today. Live cam is down for me.

I see that Lolly got naked and is preparing to leave again for somewhere. A nudist colony? Have fun.

I see Hoda got a lot done - well, there's a novelty for ya.

CarolAnne, glad your son is okay. Cars can be repaired.

Sandi has completed several IEPs. I suspect that is her code for International Espionage Plan.

See Jo is preparing to enjoy another grandkidster graduation.

Thinking of Sharon as I believe her MRI is scheduled for today. Wishing her a definitive answer to the problem.

Headed to get my "do" done then to stop by a couple of stores (a new chair/carpet) are under contemplation.

Was a busy day yesterday. Did much to prepare for having the entire interior of the house painted in a couple of weeks. No, we are not yet planning to move but this is preparation. Meanwhile, we can enjoy.

Tomorrow 8 a.m. I have some cardio tests. Will not be home until sometime in the afternoon.

Hoping the cam comes back in time for us to see our "babies" join the real eagle world.

Wishing everyone a lovely morning.

Janet said...

good morning to all! i am off from work today, all my private clients are in florida this week!

the storms weakened before they hit here last night, so other than seven fussing, we had a good night sleep! ;)

well, today and two more half days and olivia is out of school. and the great news is NO SUMMER SCHOOl for her!!!!! :) :) :)

she was so thrilled. she worked hard to make that happen. we have however, had to postpone the testing for learning disability as the psychologist got sick (strep throat). that will be next tuesday.

today is her student lead conference where she show cases her work for the 2nd quarter and the year that is at 11. chelsea will come with me as tom will be busy with the bus route.

hope everyone has a good day. HODA: i missed it, why are you off of honey? it has great health benefits!

okay folks, have a lovely day. light, love, smiles, healing, and health answers to those with questions....hugs to all! :)

paula eagleholic said...

Can't get the still cam this morning either :(

Sharon, good luck on the MRI

Mema Jo said...

I got me a feather - Hurray!

Come on over

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good morning my eagle budlets. Today is Justin's Baccalaureate service. Friday, June 7, is his graduation. I cannot believe it. Becky is having a surprise party for him on Saturday. Love that kid.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Oh Dana. Hugs, love and prayers.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Lori, my health is pretty good. Still working to get my meds right for the narcolepsy. Right now I take 20 mg of Elavil a night and Provigil twice a day. Still getting really sleepy in the afternoon. He is hoping the increase in the Elavil will help me sleep better at night and not be so drowsy during the day. Last night, I didn't sleep worth a crap so we will see.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I was thinking that maybe Ashley could hire someone to come in and help. :-)

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good morning everyone.

Do you remember my 2 dear friends who were trying to get pregnant and both went to fertility docs, oh about 10 months ago. Andrew Douglas Gordon was born on November 16 to my friend, Erin, in Bedford. Logan was born I think after midnight to my friend Kim (she used to live in my Nanny's house). God is good all the time!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I have had the oven on all morning. Starting to feel a little warmer now.

HP takes care of us always! I just have to move out of the way and let him.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Awesome news DanaMO. God is good all the time.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I am going to chime in about the white on the tree. Sycamore trees shed their bark.

I LOVE US!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Both are in the nest.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

A girl that Justin graduated with last year, Sheila "Coko" Hopkins, was found dead in her dorm room at the University of Charleston's Beckley campus. She was a basketball player. So sad. No idea what happened yet.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I was born during the Ash Wednesday storm of 1962.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Prayer request for my brother, Ronnie. He had a hip replacement yesterday and is having a lot of pain and nausea today. :( Mommy blessed us with her bad hips. I love inherited stuff. :)

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Lisa, 3 eggs were laid and 2 hatched.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Both in the nest. One at the launch pad and the other everywhere flapping its wings.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I just heard sirens pretty close on the cam. Capt is sitting right below the camera and calling out occasionally.
