Good morning! You might know...the rain has avoided us once again. This time on the west side of us. We got a sprinkle, but ground not wet under the trees. However, it is presently 72. Wow! Not good weather for the waterpark. Instead of going this morning we will wait til after lunch.
Time to check the t-shirts. Hmmmm????

Got her fist dose of drops in ear and she is watching movie No complaints of it hurting now So happy to nip in the bud before it got worse
I will have to add a new copy paste to my file and add attic instead of nestor maybe I should wait to see if we get to keep the new camera huh
I love it this time of the day you can see her white head and tail so clearly instead in the evening were she looks like a black blob LOL
DID you see the BIG WHITE feather that just flew down from her TAIL
I tired to do a snip but missed the feather It was a long white oneOK someone need to go under the tree LOL and pick it up LOL Just kidding we would never have a real eagles feather just the ones we pretend about
she is still preening
Judy - that new camera could be a long time coming...I missed the Fallen Feather. lol
Good Afternoon!Thanks STEVE for the new thread!Thank you, JO, for the call over and congrats on the feather.LOLLY, have fun at the waterpark this afternoon. T-shirts sound great.SANDI, hope you're enjoying the kids at the tennis court.PAULA, waiting for your news.JUDYE, sorry about Jordyn'e ear. That's painful for a kid. I used to get them all the time.I've been doing homework all morning... 4 chapters of homework done...two to go. Think I'll take a nap!Dogs need to go out first. :)
A large bird is flying behind the tree area I have seen it three times now I wonder if its Shep
BELLE is still in the attic and on and off preening she must be ONE DIRTY BIRD LOL
That sure is a beautiful eagle perched in the top of that sycamore tree! Good afternoon my eagle budlets.
POOF not there
Thanks for the new thread, Steve.Thanks for the call-over, Jo.The age of technology--Kathryn had Hunter do his cleaning chores and send a pic. Then he got Xbox permission. Judie, at least my housemates are not mythical!!
Bandage for Jordyn's ear--Kathryn had to put a Band-aid on Hunter's ear once when he was little. He had a terrible infection.
I still remember having earaches, too. Long time ago. Used to lie on a heating pad.
I also love using the heat pad for ear infection I told Angie about that to if it tends to bother her but right now she is in no pain I guess last night she must had been laying on it
We are watching Peter Pan at the present time I just got out of the shower so I won't have to take one when I get home this evening I guess next week I will only have Jordyn on Fri Angie wants her to stay at school on Thur to do homework they don't have home work on Fri I may just try to change my days on to FRI and SAT I hope they let me with no issues this way I can spend family time on Sat with them also I asked one of the zone mgrs and he said they they may not give me my full hours of 40 if I change my availability Jordyn just announced she is tired
Home from the water park. It really does not have the tall slides that the boys like, but they had fun for a while.Have posted pics on fb of our t-shirts and will bring them over here.
LOVETHESHIRTSLOLLYThey are super cool
Thanks Judy! They turned out great!Camp Hawkwood T-Shirts
Jack and Joseph are acting like they had had some of Hoda's brownies!
Shirts are great, Lolly. All four of you look terrific. JudyE, I guess I'm not current on employment stuff but seems to me it might be questionable to cut hours just because of a change of work days. Fulltime/40 hours is fulltime/40 hours regardless of the days worked. What am I missing? Well, anyway, hope you can get accommodation without loss of hours.Darth has a concert tonight. Small pizza w/sauce, cheese, basil. My basil is looking like it wants to retire.Bye
Hi allJust checking inCloudy, cool and 77 here in ParadiseNo word on the jobYoug osrey is doing well...was soaring over the house
at Walmart the store is suppose to run on a computerized schedule And your availability depends on your hours But I know they are keying in my hour 8-5 each day when the computer does it it gives me 10-7 and 9-6 as shifts so they are now doing my schedule My availability is 7-7 and they can't not schedule me out of the area Remember a while back that they were letting the system do the schedules Well most people work the computer schedule there are only a handful that is like me that they change so I am so super lucky on that part full time is 32-40 hours and they can't give me less that 32 also Being its retail they want peeps to work on weekend most people don't want to or like to but I have been doing it for years I have always worked on Sun because I want to and I get time and a half for it but only have been doing Sat since Jordyn was born my NA days are now Thu/Fri but before it was Fri/Sat and I want to change it back to that I will plea family time to try to get Sat back .I hope I have explained it good enough Got Jordyn to wake up finally I let her sleep on the couch easy to wake her than if she was in the bed I put the drops in her ears when she was asleep and she didn't even budge so she has two does today I am so happy that she is not in pain now and that Angie reacted quickly S
OH I love your choice of PIZZA also Angie and I always try to get that when we are out
Camp Hawkwood tie-dye shirts look fantastic! What's on the schedule for tomorrow?
LOLLY, cool shirts, and great pictures! Everyone looks like they're having fun. I'm like JO and wanna know what's up tomorrow? Dang I wish you really did have an ADULT camp for Momsters!JUDIE, agree with you on JUDYE's schedule. Pizza sounds delightful.PAULA, I hope they don't keep you waiting forever with news of the job. Have a great weekend in Paradise.MARGY is winging her way to Germany now!Waiting for Kate to call. Going to meet her at IHOP for dinner, then to Wally World for some school stuff.
Lolly, tyhe shirts are terrific! Love t5hem all.Lori are you having breakfast for dineer?Going to the marina for dinner tonight...hope they have crabby mac again!
Was goimg to eat outsixde at the marina...but it's a little cool. Wanted to bring Nick...he is allowed in the outside dining area.
Tomorrow? LOL It is yard work!!! roflmbo However, Joseph is looking forward to mowing. I will do the ditch and then get him started down front. He will not mow up around the trees and flowerbeds.Also, in the afternoon we are off to see a movie and then we get the trailer.
Homemade pizza is in the oven. Tonight is Pizza and movie night!
Wonderful moment on the Panda CAMLun Lun is holding the one cub and he is very visible....... ♥
You are welcome, Judie ;)wow, this will be your last 100 wannabes....hoping you have your best class ever!OMG, I am trying to catch up and can't see to get past Sandi's chocochip cookie dough oreo brownie mix post of decadence. MMMmmmmMMMM!Margy must be high in the sky right now! Anyone doing a flight tracker on her?Shirely, hope you have a WONDERFUL trip! I really can't wait to see everyone's pictures...Hawkwood, CO, Germany, Paradise, etc. etc. I'll post some MANCHESTER pics! Lori, how is RoRo doing today? Curious as to what meds they have used for pain...Very cool about Livvy's skating ventures! And Judy, so sorry about Jordyn's ear. OMG, I remember vividly those earaches as a kid.
I hope you all on FB got to see the pic of Megan with the humming bird perched on her finger!
Thinking of Margy on her way to Germany. Beautiful shirts and beautiful children, Lolly.
Last night, it was hard to sleep because I'm excited about the trip. Hope I can sleep tonight. Flight is set for 6:00 PM. Kathryn works until 2:00. We will probably drive to her work and leave my car there, then drive in Kathryn's car at Rus's and get him to take us to the airport. That way we avoid the parking fees, and Rus can use Kathyrn's SUV to haul around his model airplanes.
I had a perfect day. I rode my bicycle, I went to yoga a d then went to the beach for a swim.Had several very good conversations with friends.Family in Egypt report they are still safe.Blessed Be.A new yoga studio is opening in September and some of my favourite teachers will move there. Yoga seems to be teaching me lessons on Change.MTBRTomorrow I will Dragon Boat, come get my bicycle and ride out to Cottonwood Market to volunteer with the Grans. I had better not inhale since I will be on my bicycle for the ride home!!!LOLShambhala had 200 arrests for drug dealing in five days.From Marijuana to Crystal Meth!!!The police was not amused when one if the guards from a private company was handed a sealed bottle of water. She drank it and sadly it turned out to contain LSD!!!They are upset she is upset as she had a very bad reaction. This is the most serious of happenings. To drug someone without their consent is a serious crime in Canada's Criminal Code.The air is clearing. We still have a few street people begging for money to get out of town. This part I do not understand. The tickets to enter Shambhala are almost 400 dollars yet they do not have fare to leave. The week before and the week after the soup kitchen is very heavily used and so are the homeless shelters.Blessed Be.We should be back to normal the end of next week.
George has been getting in my suitcase. I left it open and found him sleeping in the lid. At least not on my clothes.
Lynne, perhaps you are familiar with my sister-in-law's place of employment. She works at Heska. They develop medications for veterinary use. Back many years ago, she was working on a medication for pet allergies caused by flea bites. They were collecting flea spit. It seems that the fleas spit when they bite, and that is what causes the allergic reaction. I think they ran into major problems because the flea spit was too hard to collect. I can imagine so.
Yikes, Hoda, I would be upset, too, if someone gave me LSD. So glad your family in Egypt is safe.
Movie is over and boys are getting ready for bed. Joseph showers and Jacob is in the tub playing with the bad guys.Made to two pizzas tonight and will freeze one to take with us. It will be nice to have one night on our trip to just heat and serve.
Hello home from Angie She got her car ran in to while she was at Walmart shopping When she came out she saw a firetruck and ambulance in the area of her car She said to herself I hope i can squeeze out of there As she walked up to her car she noticed that her car was parked crocked in the spot Apparently a young guy said he had a seizure and passed out the girl grabbed the wheel she/he took out 3 cars before she got it stopped Well his dad showed up and said he had no record of ever having seizure They did not take him to hospital but here in Fl if you cause a accident with a seizure you loose your licence for two years you have to prove you are seizure free for two years before getting it back The officer and others don't think there was a seizure but can't prove it I put a pic on FB and the door does open so that is a good thing
Oh, my, Hoda! People not taking responsibility of taking care of themselves!!! Hey, we wear tie dye shirts, throw the peace sign, but we take care of our own! :)
FYI LOOKS LIKE BELLE IS IN THE ATTIC AGAIN
I would be upset too LOLLY AND SHIRLEY!!!She is a young lady from the community and they use locals to keep an eye on things.I like the Texas Hippies with their tye due shirts from FB much better LOLLY.
Back from breakfast for dinner at IHOP. Actually I had Pork Filet and it was very good - I'm not a pork eater either. It just looked good.LOLLY, your pizza to go sounds great! Pizza is great anytime!HODA, so happy you had a great day and that your family is safe. Poor lady who got the LSD water. That would truly freak me out. Not cool!Wonder how SANDI did on the tennis court with the kids?PAULA, hope you had a great dinner and they had crabby mac for you! Too bad Nick didn't get to go.LYNNE2, they gave RoRo tramadol for pain. Knocks him out. He's snoring within 30 min after his meals - he has to have it with food. They also gave him Rimydil - not usre if that is the right spelling, and an antibiotic.SHIRLEY, have a great time on your trip. Do you think you'll be able to get on the blog at all? WWF?Have a great night everyone. Sweet dreams and AOYP.Does anyone know what happened to GLO? Haven't seen her on here.
I'm familiar with Heska, Shirley. I think our ultrasound might be a Heska. Flea spit is very hard to catch. They aim for your eyes when they spit, and of course the natural inclination is to blink and duck, so you miss catching it in the specially design spittoon. Tramadol and Rimadyl are a pretty good combo, we use it a lot post surgery. If it's knocking him out too much, you can speak to the vet about a slight decrease in the dose. Glad things are going well!
Missing GLO too LORI. Several of us have asked and no one has an answer.Maybe a phone call is in order?I bet George is sensing you are leaving SHIRLEY?Missing JO too tonight. She has not posted for a while.
7:26 was the last time JO posted. Maybe she is in TV LAND.
Judy, glad Angie wasn't already IN the car when it got hit!Hoda, this whole Shambala thing...geesh! What is the town really gaining by allowing it?
Good Evening, Gang. Just checking in.Put half of my first set of pictures on the prelim window.(not published yet) Want to see a show at 10, so should have the rest on before dawn!!Hope everyone is doing OK & prayers are being said for Hoda's homeland, relatives, and friends ♥
Well, I must retire. I intend to go into the woods tomorrow to hunt bear. Safe travels and happy weekending to all!
good friday evening to all....thinking of magpie....likely in germany and enjoying herself after a bit of rest...thinking of stronghunter and her upcoming travels...be safe and enjoy!!!thinking of jordyn....may she heal quickly, poor baby.thinking of hoda....and her family in egypt. i see the tv and it is very upsetting, i sent reiki each time....and whenever i think of it...always for the highest and greatest good...thinking of roro....hoping healing is quick and complete....thinking of lolly...loving the tye dye shirts....texas hippies...love it love it love it....thinking of judy and angie...she sure didn't need that aggravation!!!!!and holding everyone in my heart and thoughts and sending light and love to all....SED ....good night!
LYNNE2 is hunting bear again Will she come out of the woods if she doesn't see one this timeWell I'm calling it a day SED ♥AOYPSee ya in the am ☼ at Sycamore Sunrise Cyber CafeBless this Nestand all ♀ ♥ ♂ whom watch it at Sycamore Palace Healing thoughts forthose in need"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone is fighting some kind of battle."
Thank you LORETTA and JANET.JUDYE sorry about ANGIE's car.I think MARGY IS STILL FLYING. She left past six in the evening. Am I right??? She has an Atlantic to cross.LYNNE Shambhala is good tourist business. The organizers donate over 100 thousand to various groups in town. It boosts the local economy. Not just the beggars!!!
Believe me - I do love all of you BUT it is true that I do not check in on the hour every hour in the evening. I had my Hallmark movie keeping me busy. Now that I am here I can only stay a minute or two because it is that time of the week for me to fill my pill boxes. Lynne - be sure to look up in the trees for those bears..Shirley - I bet you will have a restless night - I wish for you to have AOYP.. Safe journey ♥Margy could very well be in Germany - I'll need to go back a day and look at her schedule. She is very fortunate to have such a special nephew.Hoda - prayers for your family to stay safe! Thankful your town's celebration is over and you can get back to normal. Your lake gives you so much to do. ♥Glo is always on FB - not to worry as I am sure she will be back here soon.Loretta - happy to see you and I almost caught up with you.Lori - your homework seems to be going very well - Glad you take naps in between studying.Judie - school bells will soon be ringing for you. Hope the time goes fast and that you have interesting students in your classes.
I leave from BWI at 12:40, flight 2125then Delta 116,then Delta 9507 on the return, then Delta 249, then delta 1737 on Aug 24-25see You in about 10 daysTHIS IS WHAT SHE POSTED NO ARRIVAL DATES
It was today at 8:38:00 AM that Margy said My ride is hereI leave from BWI at 12:40, flight 2125then Delta 116,then Delta 9507 on the return, then Delta 249, then delta 1737 on Aug 24-25see You in about 10 daysSounds like a lot of plane hopping!So I think she could be there now.
I am wrong!!!It is SHIRLEY that leaves tomorrow past six in the evening.Safe travels.Thank you JO.Goodnight God Bless Us All.
Judy - you and I posted the same remarks Margy made..... lolYou're right about no destination information.I should ask Christine as they were in Germany and would know the travel time.Just want Margy to have safe journeysOK it's pill box timeClosing down and will say Goodnight to AllPrayers for all your needs ♥♥
Good grief, I return to find a abundance of activities have been reported.Flea spit? Please deliver me! Flea spit? Probably no more fun than spittin into the wind. Oh wait, there's some good to that. I can threaten to lock the evil Jufie in a room filled with spitting fleas. Cool!Shirley, do try to get some restful sleep. I've never packed a suitcase that a cat didn't take up residence. They know. Car arrangement seems good. Safe travels and please check in if you can.JudyE, very sorry about Angie's car Glad she was not in it. A seizure? Well, likely this was someone who had just returned from Shambala.Do not like that water was spiked with LSD. Jo, I watched a rerun of Midsomer.Hoda, relieved to know that your family has been in contact and is safe. Also glad you will be able to join yoga classes with some of your prior instructors. Have fun tomorrow.Sheesh, Sandperson is huffing and puffing in the hall closet trying to get the satchel closed. Jufie, however, is in a room filled with spitting fleas. Sandperson is departing in 14 minutes. Restful sleep for all.
Thinking of heading to the shower and then to bed. There is a reason, a good reason the young have the children.Night all! SED
Hi, Everyone,Wishing safe travels and tremendous enjoyment to those who are traveling--Margy, Shirley & Family, and the Camp Hawkwood gang.(Lolly, SOOO relieved that Jack feels better; the T-shirts are just awesome!)Glad to hear that Jordyn's ear feels better.It's been humid again here today. The humidity was 81% this morning, higher than the temperature! Yikes!Enough, already. I'm praying for a snowstorm.Hoda, praise God that your family in Egypt is safe! Prayers continue big-time!Judie, wishing you the very best as you prepare for school. Do hope the wannabes are an exceptional bunch this year. Well, need to call it a day. The porch light is on, and both security systems are enabled. Good night, and God bless. SED, everyone! I love all of you.♥♥Remembering Lynn♥♥♥♥Carolyn & Christie♥♥I ♥ us!!!
Hello,Having some trouble sleeping. I almost had a seizure, though, laughing at the flea spit comments. That part of her career was many years ago, but I have always found it memorable. The other thing I remember is the foot pads of armadillos--she did research on leprosy. As I recall, armadillos can get leprosy, and there is something about their foot pads--it concentrates there or some such thing. I do not think this was at Heska. Believe it was at Colorado State University. So sorry about Angie's car, Judy. Hope things go smoothly with the repair.
Humidity here is quite low, and the temperature was in the 70's. Fantastic weather. Jim said that August would be a good time to leave Virginia and visit Colorado because the weather in Virginia is so hot and humid in August. Well, it usually is.
I will not be taking my computer since Jim and Shirley don't have Internet at home, but I will have my cell phone and can do WWF on that. Sometimes I can get to the blog, and, of course, I can get to FB. Guess I might exceed my data plan limits, but I won't worry about that.
Thanks for all of the good wishes. At this point, I am thinking that I might be sleeping on the airplane. Hunter has football practice at 8:00 AM. I am not looking forward to that.
Going to go back upstairs and try to sleep. Maybe with a cup of herbal tea. It usually helps.
Andy, I do hope the weather becomes more cooperative for you. I guess I haven't associated humidity with California weather.
Good morning,Breakfast time for me. A quick toaster egg and sausage thingy and some coffee. I hear Hunter and Kathryn upstairs. Attic MT. Sky cloudy.
GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDS
Hi, Judy. Getting ready to get dressed and off to football practice. Will see you later.
Good morning my eagle friends!Shirley, safe travels to CO today! Enjoy your family!Judy, what a shame about Angie's car, but as others have said, at least she wasn't in it! Hope Jordyn's ear is fine today now that she's been on the meds for a bit.Lori, good news that RoRo is sleeping a lot while his leg heals. It's when they start feeling like their old self and want to run and play that things get tough!Cloudy here - forecast looks bad for the whole weekend. Not sure that we'll get to Fishtales on the boat.Tennis for me at 9am - don't know what the rest of the day will bring. Madeline and Michael have done their share of fighting this visit. I think that being off from school together for the whole summer is getting to them. They're only 2 years apart and are very competitive with one another - for the TV remote, for other people's attention, for winning a game.Make it a great day all!
Good Morning Eagle Friends!HODA, have a good bike ride, swim and a good time with the Grans today. Praying for safety for your family in Egypt and holding you close.SANDI, play well at tennis this morning! How much longer are your house guests there?SHIRLEY, today is the day! Wishing you a fantastic trip. Sorry they don't have internet, but hope your phone will work fine for you. Would love to hear from you in CO.PAULA, looking forward to your bird stories of today.JUDIE, what are you up to today?JANET, hope your weather is warm today so you can go out and enjoy your pool! You deserve it.JUDYE, glad to hear Jordyn's ear is not bothering her much. Have a good day at work.JO, get all your pills done and in their dispenser? That's such a huge time saver. I used to do the same thing...gotta get back in that habit!LOLLY, have fun doing yardwork with the kids today, and getting the trailer tonight! I'm so excited for you all.Hope everyone has a fantastic day and enjoys the weekend.Love you ALL!
LYNNE2, good luck with your bear hunting in the woods. Stay safe!
Every thing LORI just said!What I want to say too!!!See you around 6:30PM your time.
Good Saturday morning to all ♥It is a beautiful cool day and I went to sit on the deck with my coffee this morning. Shirley - I don['t know when you will close your eyes to some sound sleep but I never could sleep on the plane -- too many clouds to watch.Once again - Safe Journey ♥Sandi - any update that I may have missed on Brian's assignment? Also is Kevin still working with his dad or has his debt been paid?Sunday is your special day and I hope the family helps you celebrate!
No plans for me today except to relax and do nothing but attend Mass this evening. If it is like this tomorrow which is Market Day - I may head to Shepherdstown for some flowers, peaches and tomatoes.Maybe even a mess of green beans... That's if I can get Jenny and/or Michael to travel with me.
Janet - did you eat the fig this morning? It sure was beautiful and it is great you have the tree right in your own yard. Judy - thanks for all the pics you post in our Momsters' album. ♥
Good Morning Eagle Buds !Everything that HODA just said about everything that LORI just said !!!Julie and the guys arrived home last night, picking a delighted Malcolm up about 9pm. Not sure yet if Seth will be over tonight since they arrived home a day early. He has returned with a nasty cold. Hope he can knock it out by Wednesday which is college move in day for Freshman.Love and prayers for all !!!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Back from football practice. Now to do the final prep and get on the road.
See you later. Will be able to get on FB by phone, and probably the blog.
Shirley - I'll be thinking of you and your traveling companions. Enjoy your reunion with your brother and also the snow on those mountain peaks. ♥
Howdy all!Got the crab pots out...now my motor is having issues. Boo. Think I have to. Take it to the shop.So no fishing...and will have to row out to get the pots.Had a great dinner last night.Gotta read back.
Good Afternoon Eaglebuds! Hope everyone is having a good day. LUV the weather!!!!I fell asleep last night before the wee hours, so pics I was adding to the Nook just finished their appearance. Really had to search for half that I had started, as someone turned off 'puter!!!!! I found them thank goodness.Now it's time to head outside ☺Enjoy
Thanks Loretta - going to your nook right nowThe ostrich egg has a very nice pipShel is so thick I suspect it will be hours before the shell really cracks.
Exception photos, Loretta. That was a brave little fox - would love to have seen the spotty - Hurray for the Monarchs - Good shot of the ospreyThanks so much for sharing.
Great pics, LORETTA. Cute fox and loved the Monarch Butterfly! Thanks for sharing.JO, glad you're relaxing today. Hope you get to go to the market tomorrow. Say Hi to Megan if you do.Almost two hours and SHIRLEY will be flying her way to Colorado! Time went fast!PAULA, sorry about the boat motor. Hope rowing out to get the crab pots isn't too much work, and they're filled with crab for you.
Hi, Everyone,Hope everyone is having a good Saturday. It's hot & humid here again--yuck. Going up to 88 today, with 70% humidity. Feels like the tropics. Will try to lay low during the worst of it.Paula, sorry to hear that your boat motor is ailing. Hope it's not an expensive fix!Haven't heard anything about our friend Jim in a couple of days--hoping that no news is good news.Far as I know he's still in the hospital. They kept extending his stay. Prayers that they figure out what's causing his breathing difficulty! Lord, give those doctors YOUR wisdom!Had breakfast with my Sis-in-law. Got our shopping done. Bought some "picnic food" at Vons so we won't have to cook for a day or two! Our kitchen bakes in the afternoon sun.Emma's been wearing her "Kool Collar" (which contains a blue ice insert) and hanging out in front of the fan. Well, better go get a bit of lunch for us. Don't feel like eating much, but will figure out something. As Judie often says, will go to kitchen and try to find some inspiration.HAGD, everyone, and keep cool!I ♥ us!!!
Hi all, just checking in. We have an eagle in the tree!Tennis this morning was great fun - no nasty partners!!Lisa, Mitch, kids, and Mom went to Rehoboth for the afternoon - Mom to do some shopping with her new mobility scooter, the Buchmans to go to the amusement park. So it's been a quiet day for Denny and me. I suggested the boat when I got home from tennis, since tomorrow is supposed to be a rainy day but they had already made other plans. I'm sure the kids will have fun on the rides.Judie, when do classes start? Paula, bummer about the boat motor! Hope it's an easy - and inexpensive - fix! Good luck with catching some crabs!Later!
HellooooHome from work and find a eagle in the attic
I will also DITTO along with LORI, HODA, and KAY SHIRLEY I hope you can get some rest you didn't get any last night and I know I can't sleep on planes ANDY A kool collar that is COOL

Has been a good day. We mowed this morning and Joseph really enjoyed doing his part. The we got the trailer and we have started loading it with food and clothes. ( A couple bottles of wine, too for the grandpapa and the grandmamma!)Then I took the boys to the movie and after that to the grossssserie storm to buy last minute items.Right now enjoying a few minutes of sitting down for the first time today!
Pulled some fish out of the freezer...made fresh tartar sauce...making tater salad for tomorrow...picked up some fcried chicken on the way down.Oh one of my sunset pics from here at the beach got published in the daily times out of salisbury!
I LOVE THE LITTLE SOUNDS COMING OUT OF THE EGGS SO CUTE LOVE THE LITTLE BEAK once the music came on started peeping again
BELLE is still in the attic 730
BELLE POOFED I wonder if she will be back
If it was the pic on FB - it was awesome. From where did the Salisbury Times find you pic ?
Did you submit the pic PAULA ?? LORETTA your pictures as always are outstanding I loved the fox, deets, and the futterflies How did you get them to sit still
Looks like a white egret just flew behind the tree
Long but interesting day.Glad to be back and rested.I was supposed to go to a lecture tonight but I am too tired.Also we have free movies in the park on the weekendAnd I will miss that too.Some of The Shambhala crowd is still around and the Cotton wood Market certainly was different in energy.The city police showed up twice and escorted people out. I felt uncomfortable.The RCMP and the city police showed up a third time after some of the Shambhala folks were walking around offering people cut watermelon!!!None of the locals accepted. Most if us are mistrustful after the LSD incident.Those the police took out left without resistance.I think we are all ready for them to be gone!!!The police is working overtime and I am very pleased to see them out and about.Wishing SHIRLEY and Family safe travels.Good to see you checked in LOLLY.
Yay PAULA. You take awesome pictures and am glad one of yours got published.Safe travels DANA and family...two in university. Blessed Be.
Happy Evening to all. JudyE, sorry about Angie's car and hope Jordyn is feeling better.Wonder if Margy's nephew is techie enough to be able to send us a message??? Good for her!Safe travels to all those starting trips! Have fun.Love news about pictures~~~Paula's sunset and Megan's hummer!!!Had a Panda nap, so gotta eat! ☺
Good night.God Bless Us All.
The sunset pic was from a couple of weeks ago. They asked for local pics on their FB page, so I put it on there.Hoda, ik wouldn't accept the watermelon either. Very unconscionable what some one did with that drink.Getting some sprinkles here now. Gonna go grab a book amd read.
Hey Loretta! Tomorrow we are heading for Bastrop. We are staying at an RV park there on the river and then heading into Austin Monday and Tuesday.I am so tired tonight. Will be very happy for 3 hours of sitting and traveling.
Goodnight to all ♥Prayers for all those travelers amongst us. Prayers for all our needs.Nite I am watching the ostrich cam - trying so hard to get out of the shell...... :)
Whew, really having think about some new rules. The Evil Jufie and Sandperson are at it again.Non-busy day. Got out for a few to take care of recycling. Computer still very sick. Makes me nervous - first class is the 27th. Do NOT want a broken computer.Shirley must be in CO and Margy in Germany. Me, well I'm still in VA.Seems as if everyone had nice day, well, maybe Hoda was a bit off course. Heading to the pillows early. Jufie and Sandperson are on their own. Sandperson insists departure time is 11pm.Restful sleep for all.
That is the cutest sound the ostrich makes so sweet The chick responds to the voice of DASH Well I'm calling it a day SED ♥AOYPSee ya in the am ☼ at Sycamore Sunrise Cyber CafeBless this Nestand all ♀ ♥ ♂ whom watch it at Sycamore Palace Healing thoughts forthose in need"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone is fighting some kind of battle."
Good evening to all. It was a busy day.I slept in a bit and had to get moving after coffee...we had a 6th birthday party at the house today. I did manage to get stuff done, to include vacuuming the pool before they got here....It was warmer today, but certainly not hot. The pool water temp is down to 80. A bit chilly when the sun isn't out, but the kids didn't care! We grilled hot dogs....with all the fixin's....sauerkraut, chili, onions, cheese, etc....then homemade chocolate ice cream and cake....and presents of course!I will put pix on my blog.YES! I DID eat my gi-nor-mus fig this morning! And I plucked another for tomorrow...soooo yummmmmmmmy.Hope everyone has a good and restful night! SED
Getting on to say good night. Took a long time tonight to get the boys in bed. Joseph was wired and acting so silly. Heaven help me! I was ready to eliminate him. LOL Maybe sic Jufie after him!Leaving in the morn, but we are not in a hurry to get off early. Mid or late morning.Night all! SED
Good cloudy Sunday morning my eagle friends! MT tree in Shep'town.Jo, I will not watch baby pandas and I will not watch baby ostriches - I won't, I won't, I won't!Lolly, safe travels with the boys today. Even though it's exhausting, I can tell you're loving every minute of camp!Paula, congrats on the published photo - you've posted some pretty sunsets on FB!Candy, happy birthday!!Whatever is going to happen here in Bethany today, it will be done indoors! Lots of green on the radar.Have a great day all!
Good morning everyone!Sitting in the hotel room at this early hour. Everyone else is asleep. Moving Aric into his "house" today. Then I'm not sure if we are staying the night or heading back. Probably should just head back.First day of school tomorrow for teachers! blah...excited to start a new year in some way, not so much in other ways. If they would just let us teach!
Good morning, Dana! I was wondering when your school year starts. Wouldn't it be nice if 10 weeks of school went by as quickly as 10 weeks of summer break? I'm hoping for a better bunch of kinders for you this year - I know you are too!
Good morning eagle budsthe ostrich still isn't all the way out but is still working at it and the ATTIC is MT
Students start on the 26th. How about you, Sandi?I am hoping for a better year. It can't be any worse! LOL!
YEAH DANAMO has checked in with us
Dana, teachers start on the 26th here (4-day week) and the kids don't start til the Tuesday after Labor Day.
I want to be you! Life at the beach! We used to always start after Labor Day, then we started going along with public schools! Now it seems like no matter when we start we don't even end up getting out earlier. I think it's all the "professional days" that have been added! Poosha!
Good Morning Early Birds, SANDI, DANAMO, JUDYE....How great to have all the early birds back this morning.DANAMO, we miss you!!!Wish I was a teacher instead of a student going back to school! I'm already sick of studying and school doesn't start until the 29th. LOLLY, safe travels to you as you head out this morning. Your trip is perfectly planned and sounds like so much fun!SANDI, it's sprinkling here, too. Looks like an indoors day, as well, for me.JUDYE, how is Jordyn doing now? Such a good thing Angie wasn't in the car when it was hit! Have a great day at work.JANET, what a lovely party! I love hotdogs, but sure the kids thought the presents and pool were the best part!I emailed GLO last night and she replied, very nicely, that she checks in once in a while, but her photography business has really picked up and she's very busy. Said she'll be back to watch the eaglets next season.LYNNE2, how was your bear hunting yesterday?KAY, HODA, JO and JUDIE, what are you all doing today?Hope everyone has a fabulous day. Gotta take RoRo outside. He's making all kinds of funny noises.
Thanks Lori! Good luck with your new semester at school! I will try to frequent the blog more once I am in my regular routine again. I miss you all and your support.
Good Sunday morning to one and all!Safe travels and have fun to those moseying about!Take a deeep breath to all who are teaching and ready to return to the classroom.....we have been in school for just over 2 weeks here...LORI: when I went back to school at age 43, it was terribly stressful to be in that situation again, exciting but stressful. I would take a tape player (with instructor's permission) to tape classes, come home, re read material, listen to the lecture, again....look at flash cards, whatever, for a couple hours a night to learn this stuff. I felt, being the 2nd oldest in class, that although I had dicipline, I also needed to work harder. You can do this! Sometimes, I learned, it is okay to take a day off....let your brain and mind rest. You will absorb more. Take a few hours and go do something you love to do...just a little break. You can do it! I know you can!!!! We are all rooting for you!Yeah! DanaMo popped back in!!It is quiet. Everyone else is alseep. I will have coffee before I start the routine.Didn't tell you what Tom found yesterday. sad. A dead hummingbird. It appears that it flew into his bus? Just the wobbly neck....no major other injuries. Olivia wishes to bury it. So that will be todayAlthough very sad, I say, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to actually touch a hummingbird....soooo tiny. I may have to keep one of its feathers....Well, a little housework today....need to runa couple of errands...and having a couple over for dinner, our friend Russell and his gal pal/girl friend. So easy day.Light, love, healing and smiles to all!
JANET, thank you for your wise words. It is stressful and I do think I will have to work harder. We've already been told to expect 2 1/2 hours of homework a night...and for me that's three hours at least. I guess being out of the school routine for so long doesn't help. I thank you for your support and wisdom. It really helps! I hope you and your family have a lovely day of rest. :) I'll try to get some, too.
Good morning!Rainy this morning. Nothing particular on the schedule. Probably try to proof-read the syllabus and finish the book on traffiking.I think a teachers pity party should be planned for Aug. 25th. Dana, Sandi, and I can all feel sorry that summer is over.Speaking of party, Lolly, you are most welcome to use the idle threat of the Evil Jufie should you need to. You know you love every second of Camp Hawkwood. Safe travels.Lori, think of school as your job. You go to the station (classes) and then home to research for the next day (study). My experience as a "mature" student and having taught "mature" students, you are already putting unnecessary pressure on yourself to excel. Please relax. Have a lovely day. Hugs for RoRo and Dalai. Hi to Kate. Did watch the ostrich babe. Fascinating but frustrating. Want to help. Lun Lun is sharing a babe this morning.Janet, glad the party was a success and hoping Lynne2 remembered to say "It's me bear."So silly. Took my brain a second to figure out why Shirley isn't here. Duh!That suggests I am in need to coffee and the morning news.Have a good morning.
Lori, listen to Janet. The brain rebels when overloaded. I remember my very first exam. Made myself stay awake all night because I thought if I went to sleep I would forget everything. Just the opposite, of course. You may well find that your biggest frustration is with the immaturity of your classmates. They are real, they are motivated, they can be fun, but they are young.Okay, off my soapbox!Bye
Thank you, JUDIE! And a big hug!
Lots of good advice for Lori this morning. You will succeed because this is what you really want to do...you are older and have more determination and focus...and you are mature! It took me 14 years part time to get my degree(that was with 2 kids and a full time job)...school will fly by!And yes...take some time for you as well!
Gray and rainy here...but any day at the beach is a good day!
Isn't it just wonderful how much love and support there is here? I have to say this, I love you all.... you have become family to me....:) ((((((HUGS)))))))
Thank you, PAULA!You are right, JANET. This is a wonderful place to be. Ditto. I love all of you, too!
Good morning to all ♥Two very important occasions for Sandi and Candy Happy Birthday to both of you andenjoy your day ♥ Wishing a wonderful year ahead ♥
I am still watching the Ostrich cam. Not sure I agree but human is helping to remove some of the shell. You can see that the ostrich is breathing well and almost is to be freed.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SANDI!!!Hope it's a very special day for you, and that you celebrate it wildly! :)
CANDY, though I don't believe we've met on the blog, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! Make it a great day.
JO, that baby ostrich is going to out any second now. Thanks for posting the link!
Happy Burthday SANDIHappy Birthday CANDI.Good morning to all especially SHIRLEY who is in Colorado this morning.LORI I am having an easy day groceries and kayaking and maybe a bicycle ride.Good advice on studying and being a student from several people this morning.Good luck to all who are headed back to school.Safe travels to all who are on the road.
Happy Birthday Sandi ! :-)Happy Birthday Candy ¡ :-)
Baby Ostrich has been out of his/her shell for quite a while now - Had to have human help to make it - that shell was soooooooooo thick. Huge water container now being placed with Pipsqueek. Will be interesting to see if nature tells him what to doAwesome experience........ ♥
Good Afternoon Eagle Buds !DANAMO, sorry the signal was weak and I missed your greeting yesterday. So, Aric is moving out of dorm life and into a "house". Where is Adam going to school this year and what is Andrew up to these days ? I miss a lot by not being on Facebook and love it when you put in an appearance here !Seth did make it over last night so I got a bonus night and Sunday morning with him before he's off to Otterbein.Julie says Malcolm has Penny withdrawal symptoms--seems a little blue. Aw. She, on the other hand seems quite happy to be Queen Bee once again !Thanks to JUDYE for all the Yahoo updates ! Wonderful stuff, reminding us of our primary reason for being here---Belle, Shep and their offspring !Hope you're all enjoying the same gorgeous early Fall weather we're having here. Hope Summer decides to stay away til' next July or so.Safe travels for all our vacationers and love and prayers for all !
♫♪ Happy Birthday dear SANDI and CANDI. Hope your special day is just DANDI ♪♪♪Forgot my Liberty Hearts on the last message ! So:♥♥♥♥♥♥♥X2 !!!!!!!
Good afternoon.Happy Birthday to our Sandi and Candy. Wishing you both the bestest of days ever.Yes, Pipsqueak is out and breathing. Very unfortunate for those who participated that the chat was turned off due to some apparently unpleasant comments. Wishing the little chick a good life.I see that Malcolm is blue and Penny is happy, Dana will soon have an almost empty nest, Hoda is, of course, being her usual lazy self, and Kay, Jo, Paula and Janet stopped by for a visit.Well, Lori, here's one more bit of advice. When procrastination hits, go grossery shopping. If nothing else, your critters will be happy.So, now to settle in and accept reality. BBL
White caps on the lake. Too windy for me to take a kayak out. Terrific visits with two friends, groceries and now back home.Hope all is well...
Hope SANDI is having a happy birthday celebration today.HODA, the wind must make it feel cooler for you. Glad you had a nice day.Just finished an early dinner of Kate's American Spaghetti...now off to take the trash can down to the end of the driveway and headed to DQ for me...and Cold Stone for Kate! LOL

WELL work fired to more long time associate both were for missing to many days of work They just keep digging
Yes JUDIE so sad that a few IDIOTS had to run it on chat for the others the Chat is open again but different I hope they deleted the users that were on this am
Nelson Police reports a male visitor to Nelson,in pirate costume,was arrested for walking around at Cottonwood Park stabbing people with a tattoo needle!!!Yikes!!! I saw him yesterday!!! Yikes!!!Some of those stabbed refused to go to hospital even though they were informed of the diseases that could be contracted!!!They also report a female visitor had to be arrested as she bit the bartender and refused to let go. She was sedated and taken to the cells he was taken to the hospital !!!Time for summer visitors to leave I would say!!!The Shambhala folks in particular.
Looks like they are monitoring the feed and removing the comments that they don't like I sure wish they did this am
That is good that they are monitoring JUDYE.Inappropriate comments ruin it for everyone!!!
I didn't read to where anyone saw the eagles today I guess she wasn't here Hope she shows up
I did not see any eagle reports.The tree was empty when I checked in the morning my time which is around noon east coast time.JUDYE
149 DAYS till Christmas someone posted a pic of it on FB
.....。☆。*。☆。....★。＼｜／。★.♥EAGLE in ATTIC♥ ....★。／｜＼。★....。☆。*。☆
SHEP AND BELLE IN ATTIC
AND POOF ALREADY
I think they went in the nest they flew down
Judy, Christmas is closer then thatit is128 days 3 hours 53 min 30 secs
Hoda, I hope Nelson will soon be the peaceful town as in the past before the Shambhala took place. I think Washington State is having the same problems
Going to watch a tv show at 9:00Unforgetable...... good cops show.Next month all my old favorites will be returning.Lolly and Hawkwood crew are safely at the RV Park.....Kathryn and Hunter are shopping in COat target.......I am sure Margy is enjoying ner Germany sights and scenes.......
http://www.xmasclock.com/Christmas count down clock
They have placed beside the new little ostrich a teddy bear for her comfort!
Glad you saw Belle and Shep JUDYE.I missed them. You all are a hoot over Christmas count down!!!Glad there is news of SHIRLEY. I will go check FBSaw LOLLY'S pictures!!!JACOB AND JOSEPH were trying to drown GRAND DAD!!!LOLThank you JO. Yes indeed when small little town is back.I like it quaint and quiet.
Hi all! We are in Bastrop. We all went swimming and now I am preparing dinner. Will go into Austin tomorrow.Jo, went to the ostrich site. Poor baby is sleeping. It is a shame that they had to help it out. Wonder about that.
Lori - hope you enjoy your DQI had my chocolate ice cream with chocolate syrup a little while ago.
LOLLY the reason they helped her out is the sack was dried out Dash thought maybe temp was to high or humidity issues but 21 hrs she tried to get out I think she will be fine in the video she was wore out while he was helping her out I got two pic of Shep and Belle in the attic and they are in the album and on FB now
Thanks Judy for the info!
Lolly, I did cringe when I saw the helping hands and the medical snub nosed sizzors - but I think maybe if there had been a mother ostrich present, she may have also helped. I never saw such a thick shell. I read some on line information about the ostrich - They are quite the runners - can't fly. I ho0pe the owner of Pipsqueek has a large spacious fenced in yard or donates it to the San Diego Zoo. lol
Under the cam is lots of good info and DASH will sit up a facebook page for the little one also
He also thinks it is female by the size of the egg and the females are more docile that males I heard that they can kick hard and break peep leg
BBL Watching TV
Thanks to everyone for the happy birthday wishes!! While I hope to have many more, I do believe this will be the last birthday that I actually celebrate. From now on, they should just quietly come and go!Goodnight all!
the cam is offline I guess DASH family is getting rest for the evening
I saw a bear. I have proof. On Facebook. :)
Woof Woof Woof!That is on strange looking bear there MISS LYNNE!!!Where you dehydrated, did you imbibe, perchance you inhaled?Just sayin'That is no bear you saw!!!Now what could it have beenWOOFWOOFWOOFWOOFWOOFWOOF
YEP LYNNE2 need to go see a eye dr I looked at the pic I don't see a bear LOL I think she has been visiting Hoda at the festival LOL
are those horns I see on your bear
#%@#$! Heaven help me. The Evil Jufie escaped and Sandperson and I have been in a battle to contain the riotous antics. Finally, Evil Jufie has been locked in a closet and Sandperson is beginning to pack a satchel. At least we know Evil Jufie did not try to drown Jack.lolGood to know the CO. trio have arrived safely.Jo, can't wait until the Fall shows begin, especially the ones we both enjoy.Lynne2 saw a bear and lived to tell. Must have remembered to say "It's me bear." Wonder what and how Pipsqueak is going to be fed? Sure hope these people know what they are doing.Hoda, all will return to normal soon and you will only have to contend with Nelson's famous brownies. Hope you are resting.Have to get my teeth cleaned in the morning. Just regular back-to-school stuff.Sandperson will be departing at 11pm. Restful sleep for all.
Oh no, Lynn2 did NOT go into the woods to find a bear. She went to Nelson and inhaled.
