New thread.


paula eagleholic said...

Good Morning!

Thanks for the call over, Jim. I'll grab the feather for you!

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks for the new thread, Steve.

movin said...

Thanks, Steve, for the new thread, and Good Morning, Paula.

I searched the last thread for news of the cam(s) with no luck. Any word???

[:~D] Jim

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Colorado plans are progressing. Plane tickets have been purchased. We depart on August 17 and return Aug. 24.

stronghunter said...

Thanks for the call-over, Jim, and for the new thread, Steve.

stronghunter said...

Don't know about the cams, Jim.

Very sad about the bears. Cannot understand the reasoning.

Sandi said...

Thanks for the new thread Steve and Jim for the call over!

Jim, you're getting pretty good at finding the new threads on the blog!

Home from tennis - need to do my stretches and then run some errands. Hoping the cooler drier air that Paula and Judie mentioned makes its way here! Later!

Lolly said...

Good morning! Thanks to Steve for the new thread.

I have sort of distanced myself from the bears. I was too involved emotionally and when Hope was killed it broke my heart. I am sorta keeping up with them and it is breaking my heart again. Do not understand.

Time to go out and water pots. 80 and not going to get cooler, so out I go!

movin said...

Hi, Stronghunter, Sandi ... Lolly too.
Sandi, I don't so much "find" the new threads; they are just here when I surf this site.

[:~D] Jim

Mema Jo said...

Good morning to all!
Thanks, Steve for the fresh thread and it is so good to see you here Jim

I am AWAITING MY TWO GGG (GREAT GRAND GALS) Their Dad, Patrick and their Grandpa, Michael are going to be traveling down to the UMMC in Baltimore to check in with Christine. Docs have been in to see her and will soon let her know what they find. She has Antibiotic IV for now.

This afternoon Vincent will be here with his mom and dad for a visit and dinner. I think he is going to love Sammy and Izzy.

Going to be an interesting day. I am just very thankful Christine is at UMMC.. and that she will get some answers ♥ Thanks for your prayers ♥

movin said...

Have a great day, everyone. I've got to take care of business.

[:~D] Jim

Mema Jo said...

It's ok now to mention on FB
Christine has issued a statement:

So as some of you may know I went to the er yesterday morning. I had been having pancreas pain again since Thursday. After do a ct yesterday afternoon they found a mass on my pancreas. They do not know if the mass is a cyst or an abscess. It is 6 cm in size which is large and causeing me excruciating pain. I was transferred at 2 am to univeristy of Maryland medical center. No info yet have not seen my Dr only the PA. Please say a prayer. This is all related to all the complications I had back in January

Judie said...

Thank you Steve for the fresh sunshiny Monday thread and Jim for the call over.

Jo, thinking of Christine and hope for easy remedy. Have lots and lots of fun this afternoon with Vincent and family.

Oooooh, only two weeks Shirley. So exciting for you and Kathryn and Hunter. Will be so nice to get away for a while and visit family.

Okay, back to my exhausting activities. lol

Hoda said...

Safe Travels SHIRLEY. Two weeks will go really fast.
Thank you for the new thread STEVE and for the call over JIM.

Prayers for JO'S CHRISTINE.

paula eagleholic said...

Shirley, glad your plans are firming up!

Jo, have fun with the GGkids!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good afternoon my eagle budlets.

I went back to the doctor, had blood work done. They ordered a CT brain to check for MS and I go to a neurologist on August 13. Hopefully in the solution of identifying the problem. Prayers, positive thoughts and energy appreciated!

I LOVE US!!!!!!

Kay said...

Good Afternoon Eagle Buds !

SHAR, you know we're with you all the way and prayer for answers and healing !

JO, sounds like Christine is in the best possible place, here too, praying for answers and healing !

MARGY, so relieved to see your post ! Hoping the doc prescribes helpful PT and that you are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel !

{{{{{{LORI}}}}}, here's hoping you had a safe trip to Groundhogland ! I envy your dear parents, for I can only give you virtual hugs !

Oh, yes, and thank you, STEVE, for the fresh new weekly thread ! We appreciate you so much !

Hmm, the bears...yes far too stressful for me. I wish them well and know we must expect traumatic things to happen in the wild, but our eagles provide all the angst I can stand these days.

JUDY, Deb's video is priceless ! Thanks so much for making sure we all got to see it. What a great year for Belle and Shep and we who love them so !

Love and prayers for all !


Hoda said...

Good to see you KAY.

I love that:


Thank you KAY

Lolly said...

I would be willing to bet that the floor under my washer and dryer, as well as my freezer is cleaner than anyone's. roflmbo Yea, so glad to have that job done. Jack moved them and vacuumed and then I got on my knees and Mr. Clean and I went to scrubbing. YUK!!! After that I painted. Job is done. Things are hung back up and Jack is working on the baskets. Looking good!!!

Lolly said...

Jo, prayers for Christine.

Shar...prayers for you, too!

Hoda said...

JUDIE, the situation in Egypt continues to be volatile. The Egyptians are in support of the army and the steps being taken to move towards a true democracy not a do racy with 1.3 Billion dollars price tag that bought the elections for the Moslem Brotherhood.
The US Administration and the Ambassador continue to support and encourage the MB which is upsetting people a great deal. MB should be put on a terrorist list instead they were supported by the US Administration when they were in power and they continue to do so now!!! Wrong side on Syria too I might add!!!

My family continues to go out in support of the Army and against the MB. It is dangerous so I pray and depend on faith and trust.

The main stream media is out to lunch on this continent.

So while it is difficult I continue with Gratitude as it is my life line to understanding the bigger picture.

Thank you for asking JUDIE.
For now my family and I are safe.

Blessed Be.

Hoda said...

SHAR Prayers come your way.
Health issues have been with you for a whole now and it makes me very sad.
Yet I hope it is not MS and please keep us all posted as we lift you up in prayers.

Hoda said...

LOLLY I won't wager, you win!!!
I love how you and JACK are such a team.
You must post pictures
An Indpiration indeed.

Hoda said...


1.3 Billion came from Qatar just for clarification on the Egypt question.

Janet said...

good afternoon to one and all!


HODA: glad to hear your family is okay...continued light and love

STRONGHUNUTER: i know you must be getting excited about your trip! good for you!

MEMA JO; thanks for the update on Christine...continued light and love...

its beena pretty good day today. work was good. i had some free time so i got on my phone and made my annual appts and an orthodontic appt for olivia. i don't like phone calls...really. so i put these things off as long as possible. if i could book online, i'd be all over it!

cloudy today. that will make me stay inside and do some stuff i need to get done, ie put away laundry and file stuff.

not too much is going on around here. glad i eventually woke up. i was soooo sleeeeepy this morning. need a sleepy dust with less strength! lol.

later ya'll! ((((hugs)))))

Judie said...

Thank you, Hoda.

Shar, do hope you get definitive test results to allow for effective treatment.

Speaking of treatment, a certain house somewhere near Dallas has received the ultimate Lolly Treatment.

paula eagleholic said...

Judie, good news on the bear front. Partial victory and a reprieve on removing all the collars.

Lynne2 said...

oh that's GREAT!! I feel like I want to bombard Minnesota with hate mail....glad to hear this!

Oh, Hi from work. Three Frenchies born by C-section here today!

Fingers crossed, MIL's house being shown for the first time in many many months this evening!


Lynne2 said...

Sandi, there is the answer to above question. LOVE the basket, BTW! How is Bandit doing?

Lori said...

Good Afternoon everyone!!! I hope your Monday is going well, and this finds you happy...a few I'm worried about:

SHAR, I'm so glad you're having tests done and pray you'll get answers you want right away this time.

JO, prayers for Christine.

I haven't been following the bears but I can see it has some of you upset. Think I'm like KAY...Our eagles provide all the angst I need.

PAULA, are your friends still visiting?

SHIRLEY, a big YAY on the vacation plans coming together! Bet you can't wait.

HODA, my prayers for your family in Egypt. That is indeed scary that they go out and support their side when it's so violent now. Peace be with you, my friend.

I'm in PA now. The wifi here is ultra slow = urgh!
Getting ready for Health Care Providers CPR class at 7:30 tomorrow morning. It's four hours and I bet I learn a lot.

It's only 73 dgs here right now! So strange for July, but the corn looks to be about 7 feet tall!

Hope everyone has a great evening!
Love and prayers, smiles and light for all!

paula eagleholic said...

Lori, friends are still in town, but not here. They leave Wednesday morning.

JudyE said...

Home from work and find a new thread


JudyE said...


and did you know that they love curry, cinnamon and spices they roll in it was just on the new at Busch Gardens

Hoda said...

Glad you arrived safely to PA LORI. Thank you for checking in and good luck with the events of the week.

Lolly said...

Yea, concerning the bears!

Have not finished cleaning up from painting and cleaning....went outside, sat down and pulled an obnoxious weed. LOL Need to go do that but sitting here watching the news and sipping wine.

Lolly said...

Good grief...watching the news...flooding from east to west....BUT Texas need rain!!!

JudyE said...

You should delete that post JMHO

Hoda said...

I am with you JUDYE.
Who is Robin Kreuder?
Did not bother with the link either!
Oh well!

Hoda said...

I think STEVE should be contacted.

Hoda said...

We have a Rockin' Awesome Blog Administrator.
Thank you thank you thank you STEVE.

JudyE said...

STEVE thanks for deleting it

JudyE said...

HODA I posted a comment on FB hoping Steve saw it also

JudyE said...

He did see it he put SPAM deleted under it

Judie said...

Thank you, Paula.

Lori, glad you arrived safely in PA. Good luck with the CPR class tomorrow morning.

Don't know what Steve deleted but seems it was a good thing to do. Thank you, Steve.

Wishing everyone a pleasant evening. Sandperson will be filling a satchel with sleepy dust and departing at 11pm.

Restful sleep for all.

JudyE said...

The thing that was deleted was smut
A ROBIN KREDUER posted links to porn sites and I put something on FB hoping Steve would see it and he did

JudyE said...

OH she used her Google logo acct not the Blogger logo we all have next to our names

JudyE said...

JIM I don't think anyone answered you question about the cam We don't know! Paula thinks that it won't be fixed being the season is over
But no definite word from anyone

JudyE said...

OMG the cam is on

JudyE said...


JudyE said...

I am all alone with a working camera I did send a email to all on my email list besides on Facebook



YOU brought us luck with the question LOL

JudyE said...

We will be able to see the adults that still come to the tree on occasion that is super cool

Hoda said...

Thank you STEVE and crew for the cam.
Thank you JUDYE for letting us know.

stronghunter said...

Good evening,

Been very busy today--bowling, picking up Hunter, shopping for football equipment. We had a nice dinner out tonight. I did not have any desire to cook.

I practiced bowling until I could not throw the ball another time. Had to leave even though I had paid for another game.

stronghunter said...

Thanks for the delete, Steve.

stronghunter said...

Happy to learn that the cam is back up. Always enjoy checking things out at the nest tree.

stronghunter said...

Time for sleep in my household. I should rest well tonight.

Hope the tests show no serious problems, Sharon.

Have been interested in the flooding problems in North Carolina. Hope that Huntersville escaped. It's in Mecklenburg County north of Charlotte. It looks like the worst of the flooding was a bit west of there, but not far. Of course, the Carolina Raptor Center is in Huntersville. And it is my hometown.

stronghunter said...

SED to everyone.

Lolly said...

Oh, that is funny. Judy's comment was right after mine. I was thinking "What is wrong with what I said?" Why should my comment be deleted? lol Read some more and realized that another spam comment had already been deleted. Whew!!!

Have been watching TV tonight.

Jack has a teleconference tomorrow but then he is working on my basket hanging. Will take a picture when complete. I think it is cool!!

Hottest temps of the year headed our way. A week of 100's!Groan...... Jack just passed through the room and told the weather man to shut up. LOL

Mema Jo said...

Good evening and almost ready to say Goodnight

I have had a very busy day with the two gals and then we all enjoyed the company of Vincent and his mom and dad. Vincent is 15 months come Aug - He is such a pleasant little person and he loves to laugh and dance.

Happy to see the Sycamore Palace again. Both adults were visiting today.

Thinking about all of you - Christine had MRI thi9s evening and will see the dr tomorrow. Keep those prayers going upward!

Goodnight to all
I love us

Lolly said...

Good night Jo, good night all!


Hoda said...

Good night.

God Bless us all.

Hoda said...

WANDA posted on FB that she can not get on the blog again!!!:(

Sandi said...

Good morning my eagle friends! Wow - what a treat to see the nest tree. When I opened the cam, there were 3 large birds high up in the branches but the picture was too grainy to see if they were even eagles. Within a minute, all 3 birds took off.

Thanks Judy, for the alert that the cam was up! What made you even think to check the cam page - I had given up hope!

Jo, any news on Christine?

Shar, what a scary possible diagnosis - prayers for you big time!

Lynne, Bandit woke up last night during the night but just to go out for a pee and then he settled right back down - no pacing around for an hour. I think the melatonin is helping at night.

JudyE said...


WOW the cam has really shifted

JudyE said...

MR nest and tree

Janet said...

Good Tuesday Morning to all...thinking about each of you...Sharon, Mema Jo, Christine, Magpie, and others....holding you close in my heart and thought.

STRONGHUNTER: are you back league bowling or just practicing? We don't start til after labor day.
Tom won't be bowling this year....taking it easy on that shoulder.

Another cloudy day on much of a pool day, but that's okay. IT is so green and pretty from the rain, instead of the dry, drab brittle stuff we usually have ths time of the year.

Nothing much going on. Hope everyon ehas a lovely day! Light love, hugs and smiles to all!

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Lovely view of the Sycamore Palace this morning. Blue sky. No eagles in sight, though.

Have had coffee and a cookie. It's time to get Hunter going.

Just practicing bowling, Janet. I have had a couple of lessons, and it has been most helpful. I have changed my approach and improved the ball speed by quite a bit. Trying to get comfortable with the new approach and work on accuracy.

There are summer leagues, but I want to improve my game before I join any other leagues.

stronghunter said...

Yes, we are not used to green grass this time of year, either, Janet. Ours needs mowing again.

Hoda said...

Good morning.
Hope all slept well.
Wonder what the three big birds in the tree were!?!
Enjoy the day.
Let us know news on CHRISTINE JO please.
Remember you prided pictures of all the projects today LOLLY.
I love your morning Status entries on FB JANET.
Thank you.
SANDI cute BELLA bicycle carrier too. She looks well,

paula eagleholic said...

Wow, cam is up.

shows the entire tree top...can't see the nest.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Pics promised when the project is complete! Jack has does not have the urgent feeling to get it complete that I do. lol Also, he a conference this morning that will last a couple of hours.

Taking it easy today. Going to run some errands. Looks like Laurel and the boys are coming Thursday afternoon. Laurel and I will go shopping Thursday and then Friday take the boys school clothes shopping. Like to help out where I can.

I remember while teaching that I liked new clothes the first week. It helped to put a spring in the step. lol I would go for a new outfit for each day. Laurel can not do that so...I will buy her a couple of new outfits.

stronghunter said...

Yes . . . a new view of the top of the tree.

stronghunter said...

Headed out to do errands and to practice my new bowling technique. Wish me luck . . . I need all of the luck I can get.

stronghunter said...

Waiting for pics, Lolly.

Mema Jo said...

Good afternoon - it is beautiful weather we are having!

Michael just left with Patrick to head down to the hospital. MRI was last evening and dr will review it and be in to see her sometime soon I pray. She is on liquid diet.. yuck.
She said on FB yesterday: Thanks all for your prayers! I just got out of MRI at 9:00. So my doctor won't see them until tomorrow. Then he will decide if he is going to drain the mass or what the best next step will be. So it is a wait and see.

Getting on with my day with No Plans. Good to be able to see our tree again.

Hoda said...

Good luck SHIRLEY. I am sure you will be great and enjoy a lot.

I just came back from swimming. Blissful.
Saw an eagle while I was in the water. I spotted it way off and it flew towards me and over me. Also saw an osprey geese and ducks. Sea gulls and crows too.
Read on the beach a while.

Yoga later on today...

Hoda said...

On August 4th we have a Triathlon happening in Nelson.
I just signed up to volunteer.
Exciting !!!
I will let you know what comes up.

Lolly said...

Jack is hanging the baskets. Will take a pic when finished.

Have run errands, talked with my sister, (they are traveling) and now relaxing. Thinking of starting a book.

Lolly said...

No eagles in the tree!

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Everyone,

Have been keeping up with all the prayer requests, and praying for healing for those folks! It's been a little cooler here, but still really humid. Could be worse, so can't complain too much!

I've been really sleepy so far this week, and so have Ken and Emma! Judie, your sandperson must be carrying a double batch of sleepy dust!

Wishing everyone a good afternoon/
evening! Will try to get back here after dinner.
I ♥ us!!!

Lolly said...

Sorry, but the pics are sideways.
I should have taken before and aft pics. lol

Utility room freshly painted with baskets

Mema Jo said...

Just saw this on FB:

Happy Birthday GG

on your 93rd special day

She is one amazing lady ♥

Mema Jo said...

Really looks good, Lolly
I did get a kink in my neck... lol

JudyE said...


home from work and I see MT tree

paula eagleholic said...

Cute,, Lolly

JudyE said...

we lost another eagle today

One of Puget Sound’s most watched and most loved birds, a juvenile bald eagle that took its first flight earlier this month, has died.

A resident saw the bird fall from its nest high in a Douglas fir tree in Heritage Park on the edge of downtown Kirkland around 6:30 a.m. Monday and called 911, city officials reported.

Lolly said...

Uh,oh, Jo!! You will have to see someone for a neck adjustment. lol

Have you heard anything about Christine?

Lolly said...

The utility room is no big deal, but pleased that I had use for the baskets which I had and were sitting empty. I had offered them to Laurel. Glad she did not take them. LOL

PA Nana said...

Hello from PA. Still having computer trouble so decided to dig out the laptop. It works but battery life is short so saying hello for now until I read back and will try to get back later from the tablet to say goodnight/
If not, know I'm thinking and praying for all of you.

Nice job, Lolly.

Happy Birthday, GG. God bless you.

JudyE said...

Its 90° still and it almost 7pm

JudyE said...

SANDI the answer to your question is That I had the live cam still up with the white screen just a habit I guess and all a sudden it came on
I wonder if STEVE is aware of the camera being repositioned

JudyE said...

Something large flew behind the tree about the area of the nest but didn't see where it went

JudyE said...

yep saw something just now move in the nest at the bottom of the screen Like a wing flapping

JudyE said...

the area ETA is the movements I see again

Hoda said...

Worked on contacting City, Electric Co, public works and Insurance Companies and now doing paperwork for The Kootenay Spirit Festival .
Set up a budget for Facilities/ Venues.

Sent information to organizing committee .

Off to Yoga. Talk to you all later.

JudyE said...

My delete the heart was off some

Its raining it pouring the old man is snoring LOL and boom boom pow and a water spout in the bay at the bridges pictures on facebook I shared PAULS

paula eagleholic said...

Quite a picture, JudyE.

Lots of little birds flitting about the sign of any eagles this evening.

Think I will grab a bite to eat and take Nick for a walk :)

JudyE said...

all that rain and only went down to 86° still storming and some rain so far over a half of inch

JudyE said...

its down to 80° now feels nicer out

Judie said...

Happy Birthday Miss GG. Don't know how you manage to stay to young and full of vim and vigor. Just so happy you do. Hugs!

stronghunter said...

Back from Hunter's football practice. I stopped by Hardee's and picked up a burger for myself.

Told Kathryn they're on their own. There is a frozen pizza in the fridge. I am tired. Took Hunter to Y Camp, picked him up and brought him home, then took him to football practice. The Y camp is probably 8 miles from here, and the football field is almost 15 miles away.

Bowling wasn't so good. I was still tired from yesterday.

Got into my bed with the dinner. Offered George a French fry. He grabbed it and took off with it.

Happy birthday, Vicky and GG!!

Lynne2 said...

evening all.

whew. what a week and it's only Tues!

Well, the folks that looked at MIL's house loved it, but they did have one other house they wanted to see. sigh...

Hoda, glad everyone is fine...what a freakin' mess. Prayers continue for everyone's safety.

Hope Lori checks in with news of her day!

Nice to see Our Little Margy pop in!

Glad the cam is back!

Nice work on the baskets Looly!

Very sad about the eagle baby dying.

Great news about Bandit, glad the Melatonin is helping!

Getting ready to turn out my light. George is already sound asleep . . . well, one eye is open. I think I am being watched.

SED, everyone.

Hoda said...

Thanks JO. I did send Vicky a personal message wishing her a Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday to GG Too.

I did well in yoga practice but am very frustrated with this young teacher!
It is 89 degrees out and she does a class of mostly heat raising poses. She also insists on using blankets to do a pose. WOOLEN BLANKETS!!!! God there are cotton and silk blankets and she brings out WOOLEN blankets!!! I struggle and bite my tongue. She is young and stuck in her ego!!!
Heaven help us!!!

Mema Jo said...

Going to say Goodnight
and God Bless you through the night


Christine may have surgery on Thursday - I'll keep you advised.

I love us ♥

Hoda said...


God Bless Us All

Christine in prayers JO.

Costume Lady said...

I was able to get on the blog...but something doesn't look right. COMMENT space is at the top of the page, off to the right.
I will just say good night and blessings for all (just in case this doesn't post)

Will try again tomorrow ♥

Hoda said...

Yay WANDA was on!

Heard from the triathlon group in Nelson.
I will register the athletes and assign them numbers.
Should be interesting.

Goodnight again.

Lolly said...

Glad you made it on, Wanda!

Had a meeting at church tonight and then a later than usual dinner.

Eyes are bothering me, so guess it is close to time to call it quits.

Night all! /sed1

Janet said...

quick and beautiful good morning to all. i have a 7:30 massage to give this morning. this will be the last week i can be there so starts TOMORROW. ????!!!!! last day of summer break!!!! ????? bah humbug.

oh well, it is what it is.

so sad to have lost another eaglel

STRONGHUNTER: great that you practice. i haven't touched a ball since the season ended. my average relfects it as well. lol.
tom's surgery did have a bit to do with that though, don't want to bowl without him, but will have to i suppose during the season.

it rained rained rained yesterday. more today. we watched a movie we had been wanting to see....and maybe another today?

hope everyone has a great day. seven has another vet appt @ 2....not a lot else going on. and that's okay.....sometimes quiet days are good for the spirit!

and HODA, thank you. :)

light, love, and hugs ...

Lori said...

Good Morning Eagle Friends!!!

Glad to see that all is well, except for Sharon and Christine. Prayers for both wonderful women!

JO, do you have an update on Christine?

JANET, Wow, summer is over for Olivia. Enjoy your rainy day. We finally got some rain over the weekend.

JUDYE, thanks for the cam alert! I was most grateful!

Mom and Dad and both doing very well...really well...they amaze me!

I had my 5 hour CPR class yesterday and did learn a lot. Then I had to get my first Hep B shot and another TB test, which has given me a red dot, so I'll probably have to have a chest Xray.

The class was nice, 6 women and all are going to my nursing school. It was nice to meet some fellow classmates! There were three younger and three older (okay over 40) gals.

Mom and I are going to get my uniforms today! And, we'll take a test run up to the school, since I'm so navigationally challenged! :)

I hope every single one of you has a fantastic day! I'll try to check in later, but this wifi is slower than watching paint dry!

Oh, have seen a lot of deer, wild turkeys, and a possum - YUCK!

Judie said...

Good morning everyone.

Lori, congrats on the opening chapter of your next career. Hope the uniforms are of the sexy Very happy to know your parents are doing so well.

Jo, waiting for updates on Christine. Wishing the best for her, of course.

Shirley, stay with the bowling. Practice will help. Just a few weeks before school begins and you will have more time for yourself.

Hoda, sorry about the instructor's rigidity. Newbies are sometimes rigid. Maybe a gentle word or two?

Have a good day, please.

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, all,

Little birdies in the sycamore tree.

Overcast today, but the temps are supposed to be nice.

Going to work on the mail pile today and estate stuff. Job searched all day yesterday! Nothing new happening there.

Sandi said...

Good morning my eagle friends! Got caught up returning emails this morning and before I knew it, it was time to get ready for tennis and I hadn't posted my good morning to the blog!

Jo, hope Christine gets some encouraging news today about a solution to her problem.

Shar, tomorrow is your doctor's appt?

Lori, glad to hear your folks are doing so well.

Lynne, fingers crossed that the people who came to see your MIL's house didn't like the other one and they make a good offer! Bandit was up again last night to go out and pee. Even though he's not doing all the pacing and panting, we still have to get up to take him out, which interrupts our sleep. Just part of having an old dog! It's not too bad in the summer b/c I can take a nap during the day, but come August 26th ...

Paula, I'm sure the job search is getting frustrating.

Shirley, you sure are spending a lot of time at the bowling alley this summer - I bet your hard work practicing will pay off when your league starts!

Lolly - cute basket idea. How are they attached to the wall?

Need to be a good girl and do my stretches while my muscles are still warm - later! Have a great day all!

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Hunter and I are taking a break from the running around today. He's sore from the football conditioning and I am weary of the constant driving. The past two days have been very busy.

Hunter is very excited about football, though. All of that yelling and male bonding (or whatever that was) seems to work well on Hunter. Lots of exercise and get-in-your-face boot camp stuff.

stronghunter said...

Bowling--oh, I hope the practice pays off. The score is not really improving yet, but I have a much better idea of what to work on when I practice.

I will miss the first bowling league meeting because I will be in Colorado. Hard to believe that the summer has gone by so fast.

Hoda, I hope the instructor mellows out soon. I think the yelling, get-in-your-face approach might be okay for young boys, but it is not for everyone, certainly not for me.

And, even for the young boys, there is a limit. From what I see, Hunter's coaches are aware of that. Of course, they are closely watched by parents (and grandparents), too.

Sexy nursing uniforms? When I was in college, the nursing students definitely did not have sexy uniforms. They were told that they could not wear short skirts because it might raise male patients' blood pressure. Really.

You could spot a nursing student in the winter because her skirt was way longer than her winter coat. This was in the early 60's when skirts were just above the knees and girls were all required to wear dresses or skirts to school. Of course, most nurses wear pants now.

Excited for you, Lori.

Love your laundry room, Lolly. I wish my laundry room were larger. I do not have all of those nice cabinets, but it is a thought.

Thoughts and prayers for Christine and Sharon.

Happy to see that your parents are doing so well, Lori.

Lolly said...

Good morning!

Lori, great report on your parents. Yea! And, of course, we require a pic of you in your sexy new uniform, :)

Cabinets were built years ago by Jack. 40 years ago tomorrow we moved into this house. Michael was 4 and Laurel 8 months. We have had two big remodeling projects. and Jack has built bookcases for every room.

How were the baskets hung? Good question! LOL First he anchored two strips of wood to the wall. Into the strips he put hooks, like large cup hooks. Then through the basket and washers he put eye bolts. The eye bolts then slip onto the hooks. It is my recycle center. :) Hold rags, plastic bags and Jack's beer cans. And below out of the way and out of site is a plastic bin for the newspaper. We do not have recycle pick up out here, but we save cans to give to the boys to cash in and we take newspapers to a recycle at a school.

Oh, I guess I should say we had 3 remodelings. Where the freezer and litter box is located used to be a half bath. Jack removed the potty and sink, knocked out the wall, and made the utility room a little larger. Forgot about that.

Lolly said...

Funny thing! When Jack built the cabinets he forgot to allow room for the lid of the washer to stand up. So, he installed a powerful magnet under the cabinet. It hold the lid up. LOL

Lolly said...

Time for me to start my day. Going to spend it puttering around the house.

Have a great day!

Good morning my eagle budlets. Don't remember if I have already reported this but I go to the neurologist tomorrow, August 1 instead of August 13. I have a brain MRI scheduled for Monday but trying now to see if they have any cancellations for today. I would love to have that done before I go to the neurologist.

I LOVE US!!!!!

Well, it is almost Good Afternoon time............
I've been here for an hour or so just reading - Good to see so many comments from so many friends.
Hoping today that our family will find out the procedure that will be used to help Christine be well again. Thanks for continuing offering prayers and healing thoughts to her.

Mema Jo said...

Christine said: Getting ready to go for surgery! Prayers.

I'll keep you posted

Lolly said...

I lied...went outside, worked for a while until the sweat pouring off of me and into my eyes became unbearable. Now inside and puttering.

Jo, prayers for Christine.

Shar, keeping you in prayer. Girl, you just gotta get well!!

Hoda said...


I thought I would let you know that.
I spent two and a half hours talking to him in Greece.


I will go read back.

Hoda said...

SHAR I am with LOLLY
Prayers for you.
Putting you in the Light.

Edward is my American Brother. He lives in Greece and will stay there another year.

Judie said...

Jo, thinking of Christine and wishing her wellness.

Shar, the MRI report would likely be helpful to the neurologist. Best wishes.

Hoda, so glad you had such a long chat with Edward.

Ospreys are preparing to migrate. Babe has been practicing hovering over water so fish snatching is next.

Hope there is news from Christine by then JO.

Mema Jo said...

Christine is out of surgery now. She has a smile on her face since the beautiful red - white - blue floral decoration arrived. They did the ultrasound - placed tube in for drainage. She'll go back in 2 weeks to have it removed. This is what was done before her gallbladder surgery. Hope she is able to find out the cause. She will be there another day or two as far as I know.

Lolly said...

So, glad the surgery went well. Now set me straight...what was on her pancreas?

Judie said...

Sounds like Jack is very talented, Lolly. I like the part about the magnet.

Okay--the message under the live feed says that the live feed is offline. Maybe we need to tell them.

Cloudy at the nest now.
