New thread.

Costume Lady said...

Thanks for the new thread, Steve.

Hoda said...

Thank you STEVE
Thank you WANDA

Hoda said...

Yay WANDA got a feather!!!
Start of a head dress???

Costume Lady said...

I think this is feather #2 for me...apparently I haven't been very active on here:)

YES, I did a face plant last night!
I was so tired and sleepy that when I went to sleep, I slept til 9:30 this morning (my usual time for awakening is 7am) It felt really good.

Just made a new squash dish that was so very good: grated small squash, onions,ham bits and 2 eggs. This was my take on another recipe. I think bacon bits or sausage bits would be yummy too.
We have many squash in GG's and our garden...have to think of new ways to prepare this delicious and healthy veggie.

Judie said...

Thank you Steve for the fresh sunshiny thread.

Thank you Wanda for hollering at us and for getting a feather. Maybe hide it because Jo is real close to finishing her headdress.

Books sorted. Need to make the list. Think I'll put my feet up for a few.

Costume Lady said...

Do you like squash, Hoda?

Costume Lady said...

Judie, you may need on to put in your hair;) What fun we had that evening. I think of BOB with that feather in his ear, because he had no hair, every time I see a single feather!

Sandi said...

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

Home from physical therapy - my leg feels great! Going again tomorrow and then 3 times a week for the next 2 weeks and then I think I'll be back on the tennis court. Got a list of exercises to do at home as well.

Hot and humid outside - hoping we get some rain to water my plants.

Lori, you are brave - having a tooth pulled while awake! Sure not my style - I need to be asleep!!

Lori said...

Thank you, STEVE, for the new thread and WANDA for the call over!

Took a nap when I got home from the dentist and was in no that I'm awake and the numbing is wearing off I could use a pain killer. The pulling part really wasn't that bad.

SANDI, glad PT is doing so well for you! That's great!

Just fed the dogs, now I'm off to pick up my retainers to keep my teeth from moving - until I can get an implant. Expensive process.

Have a good afternoon all!

JUDIE, good on you for the downsizing!


JudyE said...


HOME from work

and I see

the cam working good


Hoda said...

WANDA I love love love squash!! What a blessing that you have to gardens from which to choose. Lucky Lady!
Sounded yummy your creation for today.
Wished I was there...

LORI I panicked when JUDIE said you would not have anesthetic... You spoke of numbing wearing off, so you must have had something. Glad you did, I am not much for subjecting bodies to unnecessary pain. Yes it is expensive to do dental surgery but well worth it.

90 degrees out there. Had a terrific yoga practice. It was hot though!!! Bought a vegan gluten free sugar free ice cream. Mint chocolate chip. Delicious. Got 473 ml should last me for the week . Sure cooled me down thank God!!!
LOLLY AND JACK are headed towards 100 degrees. That is what my friend in OKC said!!!

What??? What What what????? So I am nice enough to let MISS JUDIE KNOW NOT TO FEEL GUILTY, and what does she say??? Did you all catch that??? I thought so!!! She told ME!!! ME??? To keep my snoring down to a roar!!!!
I hope you are as shocked as I am!!! LOL

Hoda said...

Two not to WANDA in reference to gardens!

SANDI so pleased physio will shorten the time before you can get back to the court. Extra exercises Also a good idea.

Tomorrow I have a yoga workshop and I am really looking forward to it.

Sheila was a long time Gran from Nelson. She moved to Victoria to be close to her family the end of May. She had heart surgery today and died in the operating room. We are sad!!! Thinking of how to honour her memory.
God Rest Her Soul.

JudyE said...

do you recognize this picture

Hoda said...

Sure do JUDYE.
Miss her.

Lori said...

HODA, I did have two numbing shots but was wide awake for all the pulling and jerking the tooth out. Just saw my dentist and she said to bite on a tea bag where the tooth was pulled and that will keep it from bleeding.

HODA, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, Sheila. That is so sad. At least her family had more time with her since she moved to be close to them. Prayers for her family.

Did someone say LOLLY is headed home to 100 degrees? WHEW! Hope it's not humid, too.

JUDYE, welcome home from work. Hope you had a great day!

JudyE said...

GREAT DAY LORI because this is my last day I am on STAYCATION now

I have done the tea bag thing and it works great LORI and I use to get dry tooth sockets after teeth pulled and I didn't smoke so they couldn't blame that because if you smoke that will cause it also sometimes

are you in any PAIN now ??

JudyE said...

When I had teeth pulled
I was AMAZED how fast
they did it with no effort it seemed

JudyE said...

changed back to my eaglet I saw a adult eagle today on top of a cell phone tower that they took the platform off right next to the park

Hoda said...

LORI very glad for the shots smart move.
Yes on the tea bag... Black tea stops bleeding.
I wrote it was 100 degrees in OKC and LOLLY is headed to Texas. Can not wait to hear what it is there.

Hoda said...

LOLLY just said on FB that she looked it up on her iPhone and it is 102!!!!


PA Nana said...

Hello! No, not just getting up. Was able to sleep last night thanks to the sandman's extra dust.

Lori, hope you mouth heals fast. Not a pleasant procedure to endure but should resolve any tooth troubles. My cap will be ready the 22 at least I hope it is not another dry run.

Hoda, sorry about the loss of your friend. Prayers for her family.

Sandi, continued healing but do not get back on the court too soon.

Janet, how's the pool coming along? Hope you get to use it soon.

Hi Wanda! Glad your soup kitchen is going so well.

Judie, it can't be easy to get rid of your literary friends. I should be doing the same but some are very special to me. Especially my favorite authors like.Alexander Dumas, leon Uris and John Jakes, to name a few.

Okay, my chef needs help with dinner. Will check back later

Mema Jo said...

Wow! It is already 6:35 pm Dinner is over And I am just now seeing the new thread.
THANKS FOR the Wacky Wednesday New Thread, Steve.

See what happens when you return, Wanda? Happy you got the Feather! ♥

Mema Jo said...

Sandi - happy you will be3 back on the courts as soon as you wanted to be.

Hoda - prayers for your friends family. Very sad though that Shelia
died on the operating table.

Lori - Tea bags do work if there is bleeding to be stopped. Didn't they give you a few pain pills?

Judie - great that you can give your books to a library.

Mema Jo said...

Judy - how long is your staycation?

Your monitor - I think you forgot to save the change.

JudyE said...

Just a week JO I have 4 weeks to take by May 18 next year so I am doing one week every three months not unless something changes

JudyE said...

OK lets see if this works Thanks JO for the headup I would probably have not see it TWO IN ATTIC

JudyE said...

I got a snip just as the one juvie poofed don't know where he went was snipping

Costume Lady said...

Giving books to a library reminds me of our LYNN giving a copy of GREY'S ANATOMY to Andy/Andrea. What a special, selfless act that was, because that is not an INEXPENSIVE BOOK and I think it proved to be very invaluable to Andrea. LYNN was so special, to so many of us, in so many ways ~♥~

Hoda said...

Two days ago a train carrying petroleum went through a town. It was out of control. Explosions and the town was wiped out. Now 50 people are unaccounted for and the reports are that they were vaporized!!! It shocks me that word vaporized!!! 20 bodies recovered so far. We are now playing the blaming game. NOT A GOOD IDEA TO TRANSPORT OIL BY TRAIN OR BE PIPES!!!

JudyE said...

I hear storms a rumbling in the distance coming up from the south again
HODA wasn't that an impressive waterspout you posted on my FB page I have several like it further down We have been getting quite a few water spouts of late

MY stupid radar in the weather app is 10 min behind yesterday it was about 40 min I don't know why May have to get rid of it if it going to act up and not give me the latest radar that is why I have it Suppose to warn of upcoming bad weather But not if its behind in the radar the temp is updated but not the radar

Hoda said...

So JO is just now realizing we have a new thread???!!! She brought up Wacky Wednesday!!! I need to find out does that come with wacky tabacky and is this why you were away JO???
LOL!!! With all due respect and love to you JO.
I hope you know that.

Yea WANDA on every thing you said about LYNN. I second that.

Hoda said...

The derailed train went through Lac Megantic Quebec the same day the Korean airplane crashed in SF. Was that only two days ago???

Hoda said...

JUDYE Impressive??? Amazing what happens in nature . In that sense I guess impressive. It would scare me if I was seeing it in real life!!! The vortex is very powerful !!!
You stay safe...

Hoda said...

Does anyone know what WD-40 is made out of?
Does any one know why it is called WD-40???
I will post by 8:30 your time...
No cheating Googling is not allowed.

JudyE said...

I know its a smelly OIL LOL
its great to use on lots of stuff and also get sticky glue off things but I use olive oil smells better for that LOL

JudyE said...

its a lubricant

Janet said...

good evening to all!

first off, i have been sitting here literally laughing at all the commentary and love love it!

its been a busy few days...nancy and chris left @ 4:30a.m. our time and arrived home about 3:30 p.m. i miss them already, but know we will get together a.s.a.p. always such fun when we are together. i posted some pix on my blog if you are interested .

let's see....the pool update. 3/4 of the way full. we had to stop because we have to backfill next to the pump, get it moved closer to the electric before we can plug it in.

right now however, we are just finishing up a dandy thunderboomer which was quite the frog strangler! it poured buckets for the last 45 min....we likely got a couple inches of rain. lots of lightening...and so the place we needed to back fill is now a moat again.

oh well, there's always tomorrow. good news is, i don't have to water tonight. :)

i had a lovely surprise when i got home from my a.m. massages, tom had cleaned the house and done a bunch of the laundry! i thought i'd have to do that when i got home. i was very pleased!

well, the thunderstorm has passed, so i should go in thtere and finish the dinner dishes. we had a lovely salad for dinner.....complete with blackberries, raspberries, bleu lots and lots of greens and other good veggies!

i'm gonna say good night for now. haven't been sleeping well for a while (hot flahes/night sweats start aroudn 3 a.m. and continue well into the day). so if i am lucky i'll get 5 or so hours of solid sleep a night, plus i've been up late with gal i think its gonna be an early night for me.

SED to all --- hugs, love, light, and healing! nite ya'll

Hoda said...



Hoda said...

Here it is I am dying to tell you all, yet no one is listening!!!

Water Displacement is what they were looking for to remove rust.

They tried and they tried.

40 years later

Well they got it

It is made out of a fish oil.

Lori said...

Fascinating, HODA! I used WD40 all the time for sticky things!

Once again, I'm so sorry about your friend, Sheila.

JUDYE, well, you still have tomorrow and Friday off as your regular days off, right? Glad it was a great day.

Hope LOLLY adjusts to the temps when she gets home!

DIANN, if you're checking in again late tonight, I hope your knees are feeling better and that you've been able to get some rest.


SHARON, how is your neighborhood coping with the loss of your neighbor? How are YOU doing. How is THELMA? I haven't seen her on the blog in a while.

Good night all. I just got a call from the Dentist who pulled my tooth = WOW! Wasn't expecting that. Tylenol and 2 Advil and I feel much better. Going to drift off to dreamland now...

Goodnight you all!

Prayers for everyone.

Hoda said...

Goodnight LORI
Glad dentist phoned to check on you.
Glad you are feeling better.

Sheila, the Nelson Grans to Grans member had a good life. She was active and she contributed to her community.
She even attended the Victoria Grans to Grans mtg and was planning to join them in Autumn.
The sadness is for missing her. She had a very good life and an equally good death. Her heart could not take the demands of a heart surgery. She did not suffer. As the Buddhists say on birth and in death "Happy Continuation Day." So I wish her a safe journey...

Lolly said...


We are about an hour from home. Stopped for pizza buffet a little while ago. Trying to read but the sun is in my eyes.

Georgia was so lush and green. So very jealous!

Judie said...

Good late evening.

Hoda, so very sad for you and your friends for the empty space you have on the death of Sheila. She will, I am sure, be with you always in spirit as the Grans to Grans continue your good work and contributions to the community. My sympathy to you and all of Sheila's family and friends.

Lori, hope you are feeling as well as possible and that your toothless space heals very quickly. Hmmm, tea bag? Well, I prefer Dr. Jack Daniels, lol.

Headed to the covers. Sandperson is packing a satchel with extra sleepy dust for those we know are in need, no names are necessary.

Yes, it is emotional to give up my literary "friends" but others will be able to enjoy so I pass along the pleasure. These are all pleasure reading books and, so far, have donated ~250 books.

Restful sleep for all (and no snoring allowed).

Hoda said...

Thank you JUDIE.
It is Very Generous that you make your book donations.

Sleep well.


Glad you are close to home LOLLY AND JACK.

JudyE said...

LORI and JO I am on staycation for the next week I can't sleep in for the days I have Jordyn but there is 5 days I can sleep in
I have a honey do list but can't find the honey to do it LOL

JudyE said...

Well I'm calling it a day

See ya in the am ☼ at Sycamore Sunrise Cyber Cafe

stronghunter said...

Good evening,

Wow! 250 books. Quite a collection. I will have to admit there are lots of books around here as well.

Lori--best wishes for a quick recovery from the tooth removal.

Condolences for the loss of your friend, Hoda.

I have been hearing the news about that town in Canada that was destroyed by the train explosion. So very sad.

stronghunter said...

Have been out running around town today. Shopped at Target and Walmart, then came home and crashed.

Kathryn, Hunter, and I went out to a small Vietnamese restaurant for dinner tonight. Then to Carl's for ice cream.

stronghunter said...

Time for me to snuggle under the covers. Please excuse me Lori and Lynne...I can't access WWF on the computer and will need to get to it on my phone.

SED everyone. See you tomorrow.

Lynne2 said...

So sorry about your Gran Shelia friend Hoda.

Lynne2 said...

evening all.

I see we have Lolly pain in the a$$ and Lori pain in the mouth. Hope all are better soon!

Shirley WWF is being a terrible pain. Glad you invited me to problems there!

Heading to bed. Just wanted to pop in to say hello! Love to all!

magpie said...

And Helloooooo back, Lynne2.
Good Night...

Hoda, on your friend Sheila's passing, my thoughts are with you and your friends...I like the
Buddhist saying of Continuation Day

Wanda, Wowser! Great report
on Soup Kitchen,
Squash, any and all varieties
are in the "Good Carbs" grouping...
have fun with all the different

Welcome Almost Home, Lolly!

Good Evening Eagle Pals, by the way

magpie said...

OuchOuch on the tooth-pulling Lori..
I was SUPPOSED to be awake during
the carpal tunnel surgery, but I was not...hmmm, I was wanting to be awake for it. My arm was numbed and I guess so was the rest of me

Hoda said...


God Bless us all


magpie said...

For Sandi:
Yay on the physical therapy schedule...I think that is a great idea....
My hand? I can't really say for sure how much, but YES, I think there is...AND I hope to get to
PT starting next week for both
hands and forearms....they need to
get synched back together

magpie said... the sounds of that
ice cream....I think we have
something along those lines
in at least ONE of our grocery stores....

Carl's for ice cream? Shirley
that sounds great also, also the
Vietnamese dinner....

Diann....glad to hear your had
a good night's sleep! Hope that is the start of many more to follow.... xoxo !

magpie said...

running off at the mouth and fingers here, but it's time to
get my bath in and it takes awhile to wrap and then unwrap the affected hand and still do most
things one-handedly....
Monday will be here sooner than
later THEN I will know the rest of
my regimen

magpie said...

I meant to type
Some IMPROVEMENT but not sure how much with Lefty....I didn't
go backwards at least...
Thanks, Pals !

PA Nana said...

Hoda, had to read ahead for the answer to WD40 and all I had to do was ask my youngest who's sitting nearby. Duh!
Jim seems to think spraying on my knees might help. Haha

Also, wacky tobacky! Haven't heard that expression in a long time. LOL.

Janet, with all your rain your pool will soon be full. Hope it's not too muddy to backfill.

JudyE, sure hope Chantel stays out to sea. Those water spouts look awesome and dangerous. Stay safe and continue to enjoy your home vacay.

Did I hear thunder??

magpie said...

Best Wishes to Every One of Us...
for Sweeeeet Sleep and a Sweeeet tomorrow...
Love the deer tales, by the way,
Jo, and....Judie!

JudyE: Happy mini-make-believe
retirement...Enjoy !

Prayers for Wellness and Comfort
for us all...

God Bless Us,
Every One xoxo

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Everyone,

Well, it feels just a tiny bit cooler here tonight. We had a few sprinkles/drizzles. The temp. is still 77, with a humidity of 64%, which makes it feel like 79. I hope we get more sprinkles tomorrow! Poor Emma was like a limp dishrag today--had to keep replenishing her Kool Collar. That really helps her when it's hot.

Hoda, so sorry to hear about your friend Sheila. Prayers for you, and her family and other friends.

Lolly, I sure hope it isn't humid where you are, considering how hot it is!

Wanda, Lynn did indeed give me a copy of Gray's Anatomy, and I use it often when I'm doing transcription. No wonder I miss her so much--it reminds me of her daily! What a special gift! ♥♥

Well, I need to go sit in front of a fan for a while. Hope we can manage to sleep tonight. Have said prayers for everyone. The porch light is on. Both security systems are enabled. SED, everyone. God bless, and goodnight. I love all of you!
♥♥Carolyn & Christy♥♥
I ♥ us!!!

PA Nana said...

Hi Margy and Lynne. Be back later with my goodnights

Lolly said...

We be home! Have unloaded, boys in bed, and having a relaxing drink. It has been a really great week!

Hoda, sorry for the loss of a friend.

Lorii, mend fast!

Mema Jo said...

Going to say Goodnight to All

Good to hear from all of you this evening here on the blog.

I ♥ Us ♥

Prayers for all being said ♥

PA Nana said...

Andy, sure hope you, Ken & Emma soon get some relief from this heat and humidity. Did I tell you, I hate summer?!

Wanda, forgot to tell you I love your new avatar. He's getting so big!

Lolly you are probably home by now. Have glass of vino and get a goodnight's sleep in your own bed.

Guess I'll say my prayers for all needs and play some mahjong before the sandman arrives.

Goodnight &God bless <3. Love us!

Costume Lady said...

WELCOME HOME Lolly. I've been thinking of you the past couple of days, with all the rain we have been having. I do wish one of them could have been sent your way. Doesn't seem fair...we have such a wet, soggy garden that we can't get in to pick our squash and beans. For some reason, we didn't get straw put down in between the rows...didn't think about until now. GG's garden is the same way and she has a ton of green beans waiting to be picked. We did manage to pick her squash. I took her some of the squash that I made earlier and she loved it...that made me so happy. It gives me great joy when she really likes something that is so healthy for her:)
She ventured out onto her porch, on her own, and dead-headed her spent flowers and leaves and examined the tomato plant that Gene potted for her and the climbing beans that he planted and allowed to climb up onto her porch railing. She can stand on her porch and pick tomatoes and green beans in a few weeks:)

Yes, Andrea, most of us have something in our lives that reminds us often of our LYNN. I have many, she was such a dear friend and now, Carolyn has become dear to me, also. She's a sweet, fun person:)

DIANN, Jayden is much bigger now than what you see in my avatar. that was taken last year. I will put some more recent photos of him on my blog, when I'm not so sleepy.

MARGY, if you want some squash, just say the word and we will drop some off for you!

Saying good night before I face plant and mess this blog up again!
Love and prayers for all ~♥~

Sandi said...

Good morning my eagle friends!

I see a juvie perched high in the tree.

Still no rain here but the sky looks like we will be getting wet any minute. Sky looks nice and blue in Shepherdstown>

Janet said...

Good Morning all.

Thursday morning. Sticky and humid here.

HODA: condolences to you.
JUDYE: enjoy your staycation!
Light and love to everyone else....

DOn't know if its made national news or not, but Randy Travis (for all country music fans) is in critical condition. Heart problems, had a stroke and has had surgery (per the news) to relieve pressure on the brain.... Doens't sound good for him.....He is only 54.

Work today. We didn't get to work on the pool as we had a massive thunderboomer come thru and dump a bunch of rain last that after work, and then ice skating for Olivia this evening..

Hope everyone has a lovely day! Gotta get ready for work!

JudyE said...

GOOD MORNING eagle buds

Attic is MT

and see no movement in nest

Off to start the day with JORDYN

movin said...


GooD MorninG,


I see a dark shape in the nest, which soon shows a white head... Probably an adult eagle, don't you think.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Raining here again this morning.

Glad you got the Scrabble invitation, Lynne. I wasn't sure if it went through. Sometimes that game glitches too.

stronghunter said...

Hi, Jim--I have a hard time figuring out what I'm seeing in the nest area with all of those leaves. I expect you're seeing an adult eagle there, though.

movin said...

Beautiful view of the two chicks at Finney's nest.

Hi, Stronghunter.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

stronghunter said...

Hunter was in a mood last night. It seems that Kings Dominion was closed down because of lightning. He did not want to eat out, just sulked and pouted. But he was happy to go to Carl's for ice cream.

Beautiful blue sky at the nest. The attic is MT.

movin said...

The leaves were blowing the right direction, and I could see the dark body clearly, but I wasn't sure what it was.. Then he/she began to raise and lower her head as though eating.

I'm not sure I see it now though.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

stronghunter said...

Haven't checked out the Finney Nest for awhile. Will have to take a look, Jim.

stronghunter said...

How are you today, Jim?

stronghunter said...

I do hope we will have both cams next season--this one and the one over the nest. Think how great a view we could get when there are no leaves on the tree.

movin said...

Finney's with the open water and the ferry is showing all three chicks, and I think the father is starting to feed them.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

movin said...

I see the adult, Belle I think, on the nest again.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

stronghunter said...

I see the two chicks and an adult at the Finland Land nest, Jim. Beautiful view, as you said.

stronghunter said...

Now I have the Finland Ferry Cam, Jim. Plenty of osprey activity there.

stronghunter said...

Looking for are better than I am at this if you can even tell which adult it is.

Breezy there.

movin said...

I could see our adult clearly for a short time, and it looked LARGE ... might be Belle.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

stronghunter said...

Looking . . .

movin said...

I'm not seeing our eagle again. Either it flew out or moved a little and is behind one of the big branches.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

stronghunter said...

If we have both cams next season, we can have fantastic views of the activity there.

stronghunter said...

Something just flew in front of the cam.

Judie said...

Good morning.

Yet another overcast sprinkly morning here.

Welcome home, Lolly. Going out to do a rain dance for you after my coffee.

So nice Miss GG enjoyed the squish you made Wanda. Especially nice as I can picture her on the porch pickin' beans and tomatoes. Amazing lady.

Andy, any word from the vet on the chemicals? How's Emma?

JudyE, happy first day of your staycation.

Off for coffee and newspaper. Might do some geneology today. That's been neglected for too long.

Have a wonderful morning.

movin said...

I've been watching a little video from the WE nest on Catalina. Two chicks have fledged, and the last one, a female, will soon. Unusually, the first chick on this nest was a male this year, and that has been screwing up my mind all season...just getting it now when they are nearly gone! [:~D]

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

movin said...

Got to take care of business for a while now. Talk to you later Stronghunter.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

Lori said...

Good Thursday Morning everyone!

JANET, heard about Randy Travis. It's tragic.

HODA, also have been hearing on the news about the train that "vaporized" so many people. Horrible, horrible accident, though they say it's now being investigated as a crime.

JUDYE, hope you're enjoying your staycation! One week every three months is very nice!

JUDIE, 250 books!!! WOW! Very nice of you to donate them.

LOLLY, welcome home! Hope it's not too hot and you get some rain.

WANDA, congrats on such a successful soup kitchen Tuesday night. Hope your garden dries out soon, but not too much. :)

JANET, so what's the latest estimate on when you'll get to use the pool?

DIANN, glad you're resting better, now let's get those knees to moving! Just wish no pain for you.

PAULA, what's on your agenda today?

MARGY, any special plans today?

KAY, I hope you're drying out...we're supposed to have lots of rain and thunderstorms today. Treats for Penny!

SHARON, are you still doing PT? How is your body feeling these days?

SANDI, enjoy your day at the beach if it doesn't rain. Treat your calf well. Glad PT is helping!

Lori said...

SHIRLEY, what's up with WWF on your PC? Mine gets glitch at times, too.

grannyblt said...

Good morning eagle buds.

The sun is actually out today.

This must be dental month on the blog. I went in yesterday to do the prep work for a new crown. It was an unnerving experience as the weather alert on the radio was going off every two minutes. A tornado in the next county and lots of rain particularly in the Pittsburgh area. My fear was that there would be a power loss before my procedure was over. All turned out well and the crown should be ready in 3 weeks. Lori, I think the sound effects during a tooth extraction are the worst part.

Hoda, sorry to hear about your friend.

I have a story about WD-40. A couple of years ago I was in the car with a couple of elderly, straight laced, never married women when the subject of WD 40 came up. I was trying to remember an alternative (silicon spray). One of the women googled lubricant on my iphone and got an unexpected education.

Judie- I donated several hundred books to the library when I left TX. I hated to part with them, but knew I would not re-read them and they might benefit others. In my past life I read at least a book a week, now I'm lucky to read one a month. It is interesting how our lives and interests evolve with time.

I'm waiting for a call from the garage door opener installer--I've 'loved' spending $$ this week.LOL Have a great day all.

magpie said...

........Squish...sounds like my
kind of dish, Judie...
I have some squished food
here the last few weeks...
While Righty Rules...

Good Morning Eagle Pals !!

magpie said...

Wow the dentists among us raking it in this week...

grannyblt: whew, I get you WERE worried about the power situation..

Lori? How's the toofers doing this morning, or, I mean, where the toofers WERE

Mema Jo said...

Good morning to all!

Seems a bit more bearable outside this morning.

Plans to get my 'do' done and that is about it.

magpie said...

Looks like a Sunny-Wowser kind of a day hereabouts...

The WD-40 report: great stuff!
What a clever name for it
considering its history

Thanks for the Finland Nest Reports...!!!

in past years these have been among my very favorites...but
I have not been able to view them
much [yet] this year...

magpie said...

There is always so much more to
chitty chat about here....
but the clock seems to be running at fast speed ....

So: Best Wishes for a Very Good Day to Everyone...

and "See Ya' Later"
- have a high school gal pal
coming for me in a little while
for some "girl time"


magpie said...

I have known Ice Cream to pull
me out of a rough spot too....
Glad it did the trick for

magpie said...

Well JO
I just magpie-ed all round

Good morning.
I like getting the blog on email.
Easier to keep up. Might continue to check box after desk top is fixed.

Off to a yoga workshop today. See you around five your time.
Enjoy the day.

LORI hope no dental pain from surgery yesterday.
Yes I would like to know how SHAR is going health wise.
And where in the name of God is THELMA??? She has been missing for quite a while...

I declare ice cream to be a food group anywhere when the temperatures are in the 90's!!!
I just had ice cream for breakfast.

QUEEN HODA has spoken, and I love the declaration. I do anything for a Dairy Queen Blizzard with M & M's and Reeses! Of course, it's a perfect time today since I'm supposed to eat soft food AND it's going to be hot. Stay cool, HODA!

Hi, Gang,

Dropping in to say a quick "Howdy,"
because the humidity is high again today. We had just a tiny bit of drizzle early this morning, but not enough to completely wet the ground. It's very overcast at the moment. At 7:00 this morning, it looked like about 5:30 am outside it was so cloudy. Need to call the new vet today if we don't get lab results for Emma in the snail mail, or a call from them. Emma was looking sad, and seemed to get overheated very easily yesterday, but she seems fine today. That's kind of how it's been lately--good days, and some not as good. She's basically much better than she was in April, though. Guess it's 2 steps forward, and 1 step back. I will be anxious to know from the vet when we can reapply Revolution on Emma. She was due for it on
6/28, and I don't want either heartworms OR fleas to have a chance to get a toehold here. Oh, how I WISH I could take Emma for a long walk every day! Trouble is, I just don't think a complete DAILY bath would be good for her skin and coat, so have to try to keep her from getting bored. Try to think up new games/activities for inside the house--not easy! The latest new "activity" is to try to snip a bit of her coat a lot shorter each chance I get. She's a frisky, moving target when she's feeling good, so it's a challenge.
Eventually, hopefully sooner than later, she will have a summer haircut!

Hoda, I'm with you--where is Thelma? Hope all is well with her!
T-Bird, are you there?! I miss your morning greetings!

Good to see Jim here for awhile this morning. Hope you're surviving our summer weather better than I am!

Well, need to go take care of Emma's latest batch of boiled chicken, and take a couple of pills (especially the antihistamine). Will check back in later today. Hope everyone has a terrific Thursday! I ♥ us!!!
Oh--Emma says, "Rowf, ruff, roo, WOOF!" to everyone. Thanks for your concern for her!

Howdy all!

Went to work yesterday to do some financials....and now the kids are here, so I've been busy.

We went to the park this morning, then down to the creek to catch crayfish.

Gotta go mow, then the kids are going to get under the sprinkler.

See ya later!

Good afternoon my eagle budlets.

I started back at PT this morning. Had to go through the assessment again. It has been almost 4 weeks since my fall. I have to start back slowly because of my knee. They did my range of motion measurements on my knees this morning and the left knee was 0-123 degrees and my right knee (the injured one) was 5-93 degrees. Quite limited. I am going to an orthopedic doctor next week to have him check my knee. I am not sure that I didn't damage something in it. More will be revealed.
