Good morning, Paula. Thanks for the call-over. And thanks for the lovely new thread, Steve.

JudyE said…
Thanks for the New THREAD STEVE

and the call over PAULA

eagle were in and out I think one is still in the NHZ feding
Mema Jo said…
Good morning to all ♥
I am not an Early Bird but being #4 on this new thread makes me feel like one

Thanks Steve and enjoy your day

Paula, you're hitting it right these past mornings - wear your feathers well ♥

Mema Jo said…
I see our two little ones napping with a wing flap or two.

Hope your bridge group had a great time, Shirley and that you had yummy food and a good score.

Headed for my coffee pot and to read
the earlier comments.
Judie said…
Good morning.

Thank you Steve for the new thread.

Paula, has anyone at work commented on all the feathers you wear? Thank you for the call over.

Cuties are soaking up sunshine and wiggling around.

Ms. Kestrel has five eggs.

Lynne2 the CTA is easy. Only takes a few minutes.

Shirley, hope you won the jackpot at bridge.

Judie said…
No specific task for today. Think I might go to the library in search of a book or two.

Wising everyone the best day possible.
Judie said…
Just checked email. Notified that Chrissy has viewed the card I sent asking how she's doing. Chrissy has not been in touch.

Mema Jo said…
I know what CT is but what is CTA?
I've probably had one and just don't know it - lol

Paula - 4 yrs old already! Are you gonig to EMtsburg for Easter and get to see Gianni
Mema Jo said…
Those sticks need a clean up in the nest - Earth Day is coming - maybe Belle and Shep will get the idea when they see all those volunteers cleaning up the grounds at NCTC on 4/22.
Mema Jo said…
I so hope that Chrissy is able to
watch Isla this season... 2 eggs down
and ? to go.
Eating Time...Parent Shep at the 2 spot...Capt going to have a bite. Think Prez is in the NHZ...can see eaglet feeties.
Oh, we are defeathering something....or defurring...not sure which
See Prez getting around on his hocks...good eaglet!
stronghunter said…
Oh, I had a nice time at bridge. No, I did not win. But we had some delightful wine and some excellent brownies.
Judie said…
CTA is sort of a virtual angiogram. Helps locate problem areas. Mine would show precise locations of blockages. Makes an actual procedure more accurate.

It is amazing to realize Gianni is four years old. Seems only days ago we were all waiting with Paula for the little one to arrive.

Could not see anything but an MT nest.

Where is Margy?

Yup, Jo, going to EBurg for Easter. Michael and Laura coming down for Fri nite and Saturday. I am going to spend all day Saturday with my kids and grkids...we are eating out on Sunday!
Eaglets not in view...must be in the NHZ
JudyE said…
just got back from grossery shopping need milk cereal for Jordyn spending the night no school tomorrow and this was a last min decision by them saw both eagle in nest the saw shadow of one poofing got snip of one landing in nest from back in and out and the kids are no where to be seen hanging in the bad part of town NHZ
JudyE said…

JudyE said…
JO LOVED IT the Easter bunny joke cute
CarolAnne said…
Afternoon all,
I see Easter plans are starting to form for some. Mom, kids & grandkids coming here Sunday. Doesn't happen often, so happy to have them all here.

Bonus day yesterday - 2 eagles hereabouts.
The Rubicon River runs thru our little town, a bend of it 4 houses down at the end of our street. And just down the road is Pike Lake. That is where we saw the first eagle as we headed to my in - laws on the family farm. A small river runs thru the farm to a small lake and that is where we saw the second eagle. So exciting. Now I know where to take my camera.
CarolAnne said…
May everyones week end on a good note.
Hoda said…
Good Morning.
Raining here.
All is good.
Headed out to yoga and the flat today.
Looking forward to being in my own place.
Enjoy the day everyone.
Mema Jo said…
Almost time to see my 2pm show on BBC
New Tricks

Lolly said…
Just jumping in to say hi and bye! So much to do!

Have a great day!
stronghunter said…
Wishing Gianna a happy birthday, Paula. Yes, it is very hard to believe it has been four years.
JudyE said…
I am rather surprised SHIRLEY Brownies LOL
JudyE said…
Hoping the rain stays away till dark its 80° out now and hope to go to the park with Jordyn 80% chance rain tomorrow so that will be a rain out May go to Great Explorations she loves it there Angie suggest maybe the movie Rio 2 Will see she just may just want to hang out at the house almost time to leave

MT nest but I am sure they are hiding
stronghunter said…
Talked with Jeanie today about our plans for the reunion. I am really looking forward to seeing her and my other friends.
Shirley, is that reunion that was going to take place in VA or NC??
Judie said…
Shirley, yummy brownies and wine? You go girlfriend!
stronghunter said…
The reunion will be in Greenville, North Carolina. That is were I went to undergraduate school. It's our 50th reunion. I have not seen Jeanie in 50 years.
stronghunter said…
They were very delicious, Judie. We had fun.
Mema Jo said…
Watching Loretta's Osprey cam
Looks like 4 eggs.......
I see eagles on the still but not yet on the live...
Er....maybe because my live cam was frozen! LOL. Eagle looks to be brooding the young 'uns :)
Mema Jo said…
Michael visiting - mowed and did some
yard word for us. Going out to eat

Hoda said…
What what what???

SHIRLEY is into brownies? When did that happen? I know you have had some stress with taxes, with pharmacy, with Hunter in shorts and probably now sandales!!! But SERIOUSLY you are on BROWNIES???
You never cease to surprise me!!! NOOOOOOO DO NOT MIX WITH WINE!!! Could be lethal!!! LOL

Good day so far.
Feeling good with my morning.
The snow is staying up in the mountains and from the look of it lots of snow.
magpie said…
Happy 4th Birthday to your
precious grandddaugter Gianni,
I remember that posted a wonderful picture as your avatar.....
and I talked to Norma-Byrd
that day for awhile...
she had just recently lost some of her computer functions....

I want to see your Feather Headdress !!

Hello Eagle Pals.
Beauteous Spring-time day hereabouts

xoxox (( HUGS and Lovins')
Sandi said…
Hi all - I am happy!! My spring break has started!! YAY - I am retired for the next 10 days!

I DID end up being the ELA teacher on the team today - no sub - but the kids were very well-behaved, especially for the day before their break.

We will be heading to Baltimore early tomorrow - I am hoping to get some paperwork to the Register of Wills before they close and then get some more paperwork to the bank where Mom has a small account so I can close it out (Mom neglected to put my name or Lisa's name on the account so we have some hoops to jump through before they will give us the money in the account).

Headed out to dinner with friends this evening.

I will check in tomorrow morning before we get on the road. Later!
Sandi said…
Can anyone refresh my memory on the hatch dates for our eaglets? I know it was right around the 18th or 19th for the first and I'm thinking around the 24th for the little one.

Also, is Prez. #1 and Capt. #3?

Judie said…
Hoda, did you give Sandperson a baggie of brownies to drop off to Shirley? Wondering because Sandperson was mumbling about might as well be employed by USPS. lol Have a good evening in your flat.

Live cam shows an MT nest.

Great to see Margy has been here. Thought she might be feeling poorly.

Enjoy dining out Jo. Give Michael and Mr. Jo a hello from me.

To the scullery. Pizza tonight.
magpie said…
I had Pizza last night, with the Mom of my Swinging Bridge cohort...
my friend is on a cruise to the Bahamas and I am one of the Point Persons to check in with her
85 year old Mother

Yay Sandi!!! Enjoy !! Nothing quite like mini-retirement, I enjoyed some of that myself recently...
Some offices might actually be Closed Friday, in observance of Good Friday, hope the Registry of Wills in Baltimore, is NOT one of them

Beauteous WV Spring today !

I use "Beauteous" in honor and
love for our "Stronghunter" -
her expression....

glad the Bridge and the
Wine and the Brownies were...
enjoyable, Shirley !! As such it should be

Janet said…
good Thursday evening to all.

sounds like almost everyone had a good day...and a nice new thread! THANKS STEVE!

JUDYE: enjoy your time with JORDYN!

All our teachers: enjoy your few days off!!!

Its been a busy but good day. The weather is much improved.

Tom and Olivia are off from school tomorrow. She is going over to her sisters for a day or so. Tom and I are thinking about a night out. There is a drum circle on Saturday I think I want to attend and then maybe a date night.

Got the sleepies. JUDIE: did the sand person sneak out early or something? Sheesh!

Light love, hugs and smiles to all. Think its gonna be an early night. (yawn)
Mema Jo said…

magpie said…
Eagle has arrived for Night-time
magpie said…
I cannot honestly tell you what day is what these days!

I feel like "yesterday" was my see, I work four days, and then am off for four time is Wonky for me.
James my grandson has been off school all this week for Spring Break.
I'll see him tomorrow, on whatever day THAT is :)

Oh! It is Good Friday, and RED FRIDAY as well...
xoxox (( HUGS ))
stronghunter said…
Good evening.

Hoda, I can assure that they were virgin brownies. Made by my friend Bonnie.
magpie said…
I think it is Bedding Down time for our Royal Eagle Family
magpie said…
Lolly and Jack:
It sounds like your Easter Saturday-Sunday family gathering is developing beautifully!
magpie said…
O Boy!

Doc Martin for a couple of hours...gotta love Public

Janet said…
oops forgot to tell you, I put a pix of the painting I have been working on - on my blog. take a peek if you like. good night
JudyE said…
Love the pic sis

Jordyn is playing in her room
my dvd player only got half way and went to black screen looks like I just may have to buy a new one

She is in her room playing I told her we could rent one from cable co and she said no if its ok I will play with my toys and color some such a easy going kid

Judie said…
It is nearing that time.

Watched First 48. Now some local news.

Pizza was tasty. Need to forage for grosseries tomorrow. Running out of options.

Sandperson is in the hall closet. Huffing and puffing and stuffing a satchel. Will be departing soon.

Night light is on. Restful sleep for all.

Lolly said…
Hi all! Think I know why I retired. Helped approx. 50 preschoolers decorate cookies today. Oh, my aching back.

stronghunter said…
Love the painting, Janet. You are quite talented. Looks like you had fun with it.
Mema Jo said…
Oh Lolly! Worst then working in the yard. I was thinking that the daycare kids might just eat them before decorating them I'm sure it was fun.
stronghunter said…
Would have enjoyed watching Lolly work with those little ones.
Mema Jo said…
I really do appreciate the sandman most of the time - But there are times when he dusts me and I miss the very last 5 min conclusion of the
mystery show I've watched for the past 50 minutes.. GRRRRRR lol
stronghunter said…
Funny thing--you know how cats do that staring thing? George has been bugging me for extra food. Sits and stares at me. I stared back at him and he kept looking away. Then he left and is now sleeping at the foot of the bed. I've seen that work with dogs before, but had not tried it with a cat.
Mema Jo said…
Painting is great Janet.
Mema Jo said…
George got your message
BUT just you wait till 3 am when
he repeats himself ♥
JudyE said…
funny SHIRLEY Yep George is in there plotting revenge for the middle of the night so beware LOL

Jordyn was up till about 945 she came in here and started to lay on the couch I said honey if you are tired you can go to bed and so she did LOL maybe she will sleep in she usually get up early because of school etc We will see
JudyE said…
Well I'm calling it a day

Time for sleep. I hope George sleeps through the night. Last night I gave him a little bit of milk and he slept so hard he snored.
Mema Jo said…
Goodnight to all ♥

May you always have love to share, health to spare, and friends that care!
Lynne2 said…
evening all!

Test went fine. The CTA itself only lasted for 10 minutes. The prep and aftercare took MUCH longer! I will not have results until next week sometime, but they would have kept me had there been any imminent danger found.
Lynne2 said…
I had a meltdown this morning because I woke up scared to death that they would find something wrong and have to keep me, and I hadn't even considered that until THAT MOMENT as I was waking up. I freaked out! I had no plan in place in the event that had happened. But all was well!
Lynne2 said…
I have seen many Throwback Thursday Easter pictures on Facebook from many people, including some from our group and it has been such fun looking at them! I love looking at old pictures!
Lynne2 said…
Turns out Wanda is my mother, Shirley is my teacher and Lolly is my babysitter!

Need to get to bed...must get all chores and errands done tomorrow, MIL coming Saturday and Sunday so I want free time for visiting! So glad we are closed tomorrow for Good Friday!

And today makes one week WHEAT FREE!!! Didn't even cave when one of our clients brought some Easter cookies! I have noticed that I am sleeping really well, not much stuffy night nose! Have not weighed in....but I sure feel less bloated! It's been pretty easy to give it up so far!
Lynne2 said…
I'll check in tomorrow...goodnight and prayers for all!
magpie said…
Good Night, Precious Pals

Hoda said…
Good night all.
Very happy to be in my own bed.
My friends are in France.
Making their way to Istanbul.
Cycled through Moroco and Spain. Now through France.
Some pretty nice photos they post.
A few years ago they Cycled from Istanbul through China.

God Bless and blessed Easter to all.
Sandi said…
Goodorming my eagle friends.

Lynne, glad to hear the test went well - congrats on sticking to to your wheat=free pledge. Do your in-laws still have their house up for sale?

Margy, I will be calling the Register of Wills Office this morning to see if they are open - didn't think about places being closed for Good Friday since the girl at the bank said they are open normal hours today. Thanks for the heads-up - i would have been very upset to leave home early expressly to get to that office, only to find them closed.

Prayers continue for Larry.

Have a good day all.
Janet said…
good morning to all. RED FRIDAY

a lovely day here. quiet at the moment. I am the only one up as I am the only one who has to go anywhere!

LYNNE: so glad things went well. hopefully they will get some answers for you. and congrats on making it for a week!

HODA: your friends are impressive. I am always amazed at people who walk/cycle/etc so far!!!

JUDYE: JORDYN is so sweet. I know you treasure time with her.

SANDI: hope those offices are open for ya

LORI: hope you are checking in.... hi!!!!

Am glad you all like the painting. My neighbor asks me how do I do that. Shoot, I don't know. I just always have. I think she will like it. I have a few touch ups to do,details mostly. Hope to get it mailed next week.

I have to admit, since I have taken/made time to do more of that sort of stuff, painting, cross stitch, reading, and going to see Tuatha Dea (of course that goes in there, lol), mentally I feel so much better. Less stress.

For everyone who celebrates Easter/Good Friday, may you have a blessed and peaceful weekend. Me? I will have the kids over to eat and such....we are going to grill and just enjoy the day together.

Namaste and blessed be to all.
Morning, all!

See 2 chicks snugged together in the cup.
stronghunter said…
Good morning. Eaglets snuggled in the egg cup.
JudyE said…
HOWDY eagle budlets

I also see two snuggling eaglets in the cup and adult probably Belle at launch pad watching her babes sleep
39° at the nest I see
JudyE said…
seems we still don't have sound Not windy at nest but I hear nothing on the speakers

Getting ready to head out for breakfast with Jordyn I bought milk and cereal but we want something else

Got to see the rest of the movie Jordyn says lets see if it works OMA you have to see how the movie ended and guess what it worked so got to see the whole movie now

magpie said…
Good, Good Friday wishes to all,
and Happy RED Friday,

God Bless Our Military

magpie said…
Was good to get an UPBEAT report from
Lynne2 from last night.....

3-day week-end and a visit from her mother-in-law...

Glad they did not need to keep you after the tests, !! Lynne2
magpie said…
Hoping that everyone gets to
complete their plans for the day...

The Day is Rolling Along,
headed out to Berkeley Springs and then to Martinsburg and Shepherdstown through the day....

Have a great James day, Margy

2 eaglets halfway visible...large yellow feeties visible as well!
Mema Jo said…
Good late morning to all ♥
I was here reading comments much earlier and then got side tracked.

Have a fun James day, Margy.
Hope the banks don't close at 3:00 for you Sandi. Smart to call ahead.

No special plans today. Our Easter plans are to travel to Catonsville for dinner - Other members of the family will also be there. Will be unusual not to have an Easter Egg hunt.
Mema Jo said…
Looks like Prez is over at 11:00 snoozing. That nuisance stick seems to have been moved.
Kay said…
Good RED FRIDAY Morning Eagle Buds !!!

Have been lurking and watching Prez, Capt and parents while I finish my household chores and prep for the big weekend. Eileen and Bill will arrive here mid-afternoon and about 6 we'll head to Julie's for dinner.

Too nice to stay indoors for very long, much to Penny's delight. We may get a dab of rain later today, but most of the weekend will be glorious ! Spring, glorious Spring !

May you all have a blessed Good Friday and Easter Day !

Love and Prayers for all.

Hi Kay - Enjoy your weekend to the fullest. So happy you will be with family ♥
Judie said…
Good almost afternoon.

Happy Good Friday.

Lynne2, don't remember any prep or post-CTA problems. Guess your's was different. Anyway, glad it was not unpleasant.

Hi Margy. Have a great day with James the Wise.

Kay, finish those chores and then enjoy a great evening.

Sandi, hope all goes well today.

Lolly, isn't that aching back worth all the fun you had? Bet it is. lol

Have fun Janet with your stay-cation. I'm off to look at the painting.

So, see an MT nest. Boo

Need to clean up and go foraging.


Judie said…
Cute picture, Janet. Thank you for sharing.

JudyE said…
I see feeding again going on see adult at 2 ish
Looks like feeding time...Prez done...Capt still eating.
JudyE said…
PREZ is full and moved to 9 and CAPT is still being feed
JudyE said…
good to see Prez walking away from food and letting Capt get feed no bullying so far
Lynne2 said…
Judie, the prep was questions, more questions, repeat questions and paperwork. IV placement, vitals monitored. Second part of the test was when they sprayed the nitroglycerin under my tongue and then injected the dye into the IV. I thought I would burn up right then and there! I just felt a bit weird for about a half hour afterwards.

Sandi, MIL house not on the market. They took it off over the winter. They were to put it back on first of April. HA HA HA! No such luck as we are now back to LOOK HOW MUCH NEEDS TO BE DONE BEFORE WE CAN LIST IT. GGRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!! Craziness!!! They had to have a window replace and a crack in the ceiling repair and now she is talking backsplash behind the sink, repainting this and replacing that and the yard is messy from winter and this bush needs to come out and that tree needs to be pruned.....OMG!!!! The house is gorgeous! It is in fantastic shape! She puts everything under the microscope and it drives me crazy! I really don't understand.....sigh. They had the worst winter, for them at least as physical abilities due to age are compounding. I just want to scream JUST LIST IT!!! It's so frustrating. They have already decided if it doesn't sell by late fall, they'll winterize it go south for a couple of months.
chicks have all but disappeared into the NHZ
JudyE said…
sure wish they didn't like that area so much

stronghunter said…
Nest is empty. Sorry about the house issues, Lynne. Hope things work out soon.
Judie said…
MT nest.

I think Jo mentioned something about the Sanperson's timing. Well, he does that to me frequently. Have tried retraining to no avail. May need to threaten the return of Jufie.

Lynne2, your procedure was different. No nitro spray. IV, dye injection, watched the machine move, gone. The warmth for me was not unpleasant. Just felt as if I had wet myself.

Hi Shirley.
Hi JudyE.

Okay, off to forage. BBL
They told me to leave early today...heading home, then to EBurg...catch ya'll later!
Mema Jo said…

New Tricks BBC 265
stronghunter said…
Would you believe that I am still trying to get a refill on that prescription? Now on hold with the doctor's office. Got tired of waiting on hold at the pharmacy.
JudyE said…
ADULT shadow in NHZ

SHIRLEY unbelievable gheez
JudyE said…
storms rolling through south of me had a water spout in the gulf near skyway jumped in to the bay and now is heading to tampa thinking it will turn in to a tornado being its been in the water that long We are out of any warning now was a fast moving and our county is in clear
stronghunter said…
Gave up on the pharmacy. Called doctor's office. It seems that they faxed an order on the 15th. Somehow it got lost. They are going to call the pharmacy this time.

It is good that I have emergency pills. The doctor's office also said that they have a supply of samples they could give me if necessary. Just hope this time things are taken care of.
stronghunter said…
Oh my, Judy. Glad you are no longer under a tornado warning.
Mema Jo said…
Shirley - that is a bit too much trouble to get a prescription!
Someone's head would be rolling!

Glad you are ok with the weather.
Don't even like the word of WaterSpouts..........

Trying to decide on dinner - Meatless that is........

stronghunter said…
Yeah, Jo. I told the doctor's office I had been trying for a week and a half, and I did get attention. It looks like the communication between the doctor and the pharmacy broke down somewhere. Anyway, it is now waiting for me at the store. Part of me says I should rush over there and claim it, but it may be tomorrow before I do that. I need to get Hunter to a baseball game tonight.
Hoda said…
Well, Blessed Good Friday to all.

I am back at the Lake House.

All is good here.
Am pleased with my time at the flat.
Am pleased with my day.

It promises to be a busy weekend with workshops and some bicycle riding...

We have snow here today.
It is cold.
Back to wearing heavier clothing...

My bicycle rack worked really well and I am pleased with the ease of loading the bike off and on. It is also very secure so in driving with it on I felt confident.
A bit of a challenge backing out so I have to practice some with that part.

Hoda said…
SHIRLEY about time that they got this medication scenario sorted out!!! Not acceptable what happened and how they handled it...
Someone owes you a HUGE apology.
Judie said…
Hi all.

Looks as if Belle has the babes corralled for the night.

Finished foraging and dinner and cleanup. Feets are protesting.

Glad JudyE is not in a tormado and very happy Shirley has her prescription mess under control.

Enjoy the weekend Paula. You must work for some super-nice people.

Missed New Tricks. Will check for next time.

Okay, shoes coming off and toes going up.
Judie said…
Doing a Margy.

Hoda, good news about the bike rack. Do be careful backing up. If you hit something and the bike falls off, it will serve as evidence. lol

JudyE said…
Hello had a wonderful day with Jordyn and just got home so now I need to get things ready for work tomorrow unwind etc and put my put my feetsie up
JudyE said…
saw the bike rack on FB HODA if you go to a place that sells them they maybe able to show you how to get it off easier Have no clue on wrenches or anything with them Good luck with it
Judie said…
Been watching First 48. Some repeats.

Going to watch some early news then lights out.

Have instructed Sandperson to reroute his agenda so as to not throw sleepy dust on the night owls or wait too long for the early birds (puns intended). In his closet reprogramming his GPS. Will be departing in about an hour.

Night light is on. Restful sleep for all.
stronghunter said…
Baseball tonight was not good. They were beaten by the team they clobbered before.

It was so cold out there tonight.

Then we had a nice dinner at Olive Garden. I enjoyed a delicious steak.

Another game tomorrow. I will decide if I am going. Probably.
stronghunter said…
Belle is fully visible tonight. She is tucked.
stronghunter said…
Going to so like Belle and tuck myself in for the night.

SED, everyone.
Mema Jo said…
My evening started with Jeopardy and then 2 more 1hr shows.

Hoda - love your car with your bike rack. Seek some advice from where
you purchased the rack ...

Hope Sandi's day went well
Shirley I am finally relieved you got the meds cleared up

Judie thank for giving the Sandman some good instructions.

Hope Margy had a good James' day
Hoda said…
All is well JUDIE is in good form with puns.
Sorry the team lost SHIRLEY.
I think tomorrow the priority is to get your medication.

Good night all.
God Bless us all.

Mema Jo said…
Everyone have a restful sleep
The weekend is upon us
May all your plans go well

Goodnight to all ♥
magpie said…
Good Night, Everybody,

Lolly said…
Hi all! Can not believe I have not been here all day. Have been so busy! We worked in the yard all morning. Then I hit the kitchen and did some prep work for tomorrow. At about 3:30 we went to our neighbors for a party and we just came home!! Had fun, but I am so tired!
Lolly said…
I am so ready for bed and Jack is watching hockey! Groan...

Think I am going to get ready for bed and then hit the pillow!

Night all!! SED!!

Good Sat morning eagle buds

I see it 39° at the nest

Hope everyone has a great day

Sandi said…
Goodorming my eagle friends. Sounds like lots of people had productive days yesterday.

I did as well, though more than a little stressful. I had filled out something called a small estate pkg. online before leaving home. Since Mom's account didn't have Lisa's name or mine on it, the bank would not tell me exactly how much was in it, and the young lady there said the exact amount wasn't necessary to get the letter I needed from the courthouse appointing me as personal representative (even though I already AM Mom's personal rep. via her will and Howard Co. has her will on file!!) So I estimated $1500, based on my recollection from the last time I deposited a check for Mom, just a few days before she died.

Got to the courthouse at 3pm (they closed at 4:30). When the young man saw the amount I listed in the account, he asked if it was an exact amount and I told him what the young lady at the bank said. He said, "not good enough." He processed the rest of the information I had entered on the small estate package ahead of time, issued me a "letter of administration" that gave the bank permission to print a statement for me with the exact amount in the account, and said I had to take the letter to the bank, get the statement, and return to the courthouse so he could give me another letter of administration with the exact amount on it and the authorization to close the account. I asked if he could just fax the first letter to the bank and he said no, b/c the letter had a raised seal that the bank teller needed to see. Good grief!!

I left the courthouse at 3:30 and the closest BB&T branch was 15 minutes away. We drove like maniacs to the bank so the young lady could print a statement that said the account had $1501.02 in it (keep in mind I had estimated $1500). Then we drove like maniacs BACK to the courthouse and arrived there at 4:10 so I could get the 2nd letter that I needed to close the account.

I finally walked out of the BB&T branch with a check at about 5pm. Can you say bureaucratic bullshit???? Pardon my French!

Here's my advice to all of you based on my experience yesterday. If you have children, do them a favor and have at least one child's name on every single account you own (unless, of course, you can't trust your children not to steal your money). You will make their lives easier when you're gone! I will be doing that with Kevin while I'm off from school this week.

Today is "sorting day" for Lisa and me - no more delaying it. Part of me is dreading it, part of me just wants to get it done.

Have a good Saturday all!

both eaglets are tucked in In front of the adult chest area I see she has pulled flugg on top of them and they keep knocking it off

Good morning eagle buds

Sandi, I think things are moving extremely quickly concerning your Mom's estate. Different state laws and circumstances aside, my Mom died over two years ago and I just heard from the lawyer that everything should be settled within 30 days. And she had everything in order and no complicated situations. I hope your dealings yesterday are the worst problem you have.

Good Morning, Eagle Pals....

Well Done, Sandi....!!
And good advice....
Blessings your day...may be be
joyful along the way with the difficulty....
(( HUGS )) for you and Lisa....

magpie said…
Hi grannyblt....
my goodness, that is a very long
time for settlement for you with your Mother....

good to "See You"

I got a card recently which had a Goldfinch stamp....I must investigate !!!

Golden Eagle News...

James's actual maternal grandmother and her long-time man pal live
right along the mighty Potomac River in Shepherdstown and see Bald Eagles quite often....

during last week, a Golden Eagle flew in and perched on a large sycamore in front of the property....

They have two small shih-tzus, and
made absolutely sure they were with those pups at every second....
Adam, the guy....said this Eagle looked twice as large as a Bald
I didn't see any eagles while there yesterday....

Good morning,

I see at least one eaglet in the nest. Kind of hard to figure out the whole picture.

Decided to stay home today. I need to get that prescription filled, practice bowling, and get the house tidied up a bit. I'm still recovering from being so cold last night.

The game is next to an airport where they do skydiving, and Coach Don told me he'd already made arrangements for me to jump out of a plane while we're there, minus the parachute. Hmm, do not think Don has anything against me. Wonder if he will think he scared me away?

(Earlier, I gave Don a hard time because he made a remark about the boys not wanting to be called girls in relation to their ability to play well. I informed him he'd better watch how he talks about girls.)

Parent in. Covering babies with flugg.
stronghunter said…
No, not "filled." I need to pick up my prescription.

And, Coach Don will need to watch what he says about girls considering that some of the teams in this league have girl players, and I hear that they are excellent players.

Wow, that was an amazing poop shoot.
magpie said…
Good Idea, You take Yourself
a Shirley Day!!!

I hope you accomplish all you want
and need to do....especially the
WANT TO DO Part.....

Remind Coach Don that you have a Cadre of Friends who own and know how to Wield Eagle Canes !!!
stronghunter said…
Seriously, I do like Coach Don. He is the one who convinced Hunter to play on this team, and he was supportive of him on the football team. But sometimes male coaches need to be reminded not to disparage the girls.
magpie said…
I only have the Still Cam but
am happy to finally see some
babies and adults from time to time..
and appreciate all the
Nesting News

Time for the exercises...stiff as a board from is just the
way it is most days

Best Wishes for a Marvy and Jolly Day Amongst us All....
stronghunter said…
Yeah, Margy. I will remember that. :)
stronghunter said…
Oh, do take care of yourself, dear Margy.
Hoda said…
Good morning

SANDI just remember to not squander the $1.02 all in ine place!!! You worked hard for it!!!

SHIRLEY we told our men's Olympic hockey team to play like the girls who had brought home the gold. They did and they too brought home the gold.
Rude coach you have there.
Good on you for speaking up.
magpie said…
Good to hear the positives on the Coach, Shirley....but I think it is good that you spoke up....

Howdy Hoda !

Okay, well off todo the stretch and move stuff....
boring! but so helpful! Then I'll figure out what's on the agenda here today

xoxoxoxo !1!
stronghunter said…
Yes, Canada's hockey teams did well.

I remember that.

Don is OK. He just needs reminding.
stronghunter said…
I have not forgotten the days when girls were told not to try too hard when playing against a guy in any game requiring athletic ability or intellect. Time for that kind of thinking to go away.
Sandi said…
Lynne, should I be hiring a lawyer to settle my mom's estate? I really didn't think that was necessary. Two years to get things settled? I was thinking more like 2 months, hold back $5k - $10k to cover any unexpected expenses and disburse the rest to my boys, Lisa for her children (who are still too young to get the money themselves), and my brother's 3 children. Am I missing something?
Janet said…
Good morning to one and all.

Good Gravy Sandi what a day!
Many hugs my friend.

A lovely Saturday morning to all. It is simply gorgeous here!!! I have a productive day planned. A quick trip to publix, some yard work, drum circle and date night tonight. Kids are coming for lunch tomorrow. We shall grill and enjoy each other’s company.

Must scat. Furrbutts want breakfast! How dare I sleep late!
Mema Jo said…
Good morning to all ♥
Beautiful morning is upon us ♥

I saw the adult and our peeps in the nest when I first came on, but now I can only see their tail ends.

Good to see so many here and knowing all of your happy plans for this Easter weekend.

Mema Jo said…

Happy happy birthday Lynne

aka grannyblt. Enjoy your special day

and have a fantastic year ahead
Mema Jo said…
Thanks for that information about bank account or any accounts. With 5 children there is a good chance we have picked the right one.... lol
Judie said…
Good morning.

Shirley, sorry about the loss and I agree about disparaging remarks. Hope the game today will be a winner and that you accomplish what you want to. Yes, you might want to mention eagle canes to Don.

Sandi, what a run around but happy you got the account closed.

Darth's aunt put only her son's name on an account (may have been a CD or checking). When she died, he closed the account and kept all the money. Put every child's name (beneficiary) so that all of them have to be present to close the account.

Sunshine this morning. Could only see Pres's butt.

Hoda, when do you turn into a dragon boater?

Margy, hope you've limbered up some by now.

Off to look for mischief. BBL
CarolAnne said…
Morning all,
Wishing everyone a pleasant weekend however you choose to spend it.

It's a good day to have a good day!
stronghunter said…
Glad you agree, Judie. Kathryn did not seem to be impressed with my comments to Don. But she is of a different generation. However, she knows what it is to be a woman working in a man's world.
stronghunter said…
Oh, my, interesting comment regarding Darth's aunt. That kind of behavior would not contribute to good will within the family.
Mema Jo said…
Good to know we have done something correctly - all 5 children's names are on all docs as beneficiaries. One child is named the executor of the estate - Essy job as I plan to spend it all before I leave..... lol
Mema Jo said…

I hope Grannyblt comes back as gets her b-day wishes - The Momster event calendar didn't get checked to send out the announcement.
stronghunter said…
Happy birthday, dear Grannyblt!!

Happy birthday to you!!

(I have not learned how to create musical notes.)
stronghunter said…
My will names Kathryn as the executor and says that the two youngest should be favored until they are established. Of course, they are fully grown now.
Mema Jo said…
Shirley I'm not so good at it anymore. ♫♫♪♪

Hold down ALT
Press 1 & 3 0r 1 & 4

Mema Jo said…
Shirley ???? Does that now mean that Susan and Will are not beneficiaries.
magpie said…
Oh I was looking forward to
Judie's Bunny Avatar today !!

Limbered up, yes, sort of, and
watching a pretty cool Educational program on some channel labeled E/1
..has lots of kid-friendly and
adult-friendly information and encouragement

Hello More Morning Eagle Pals...
Love the Encouragement and
Sunshiney wishes we share amongst us xoxo
magpie said…
grannyblt Lynne1:

Loving Wishes on this, your
Birthday !!!
May this day be filled with your favorite and joyful things

(including some birthday cake!)

Thanks Jo, for the "birthday alert"
Lolly said…
Good morning! Plenty to do today, so going to get busy. Have finished my lazy time along with my two mugs of coffee!

Come to think of it, do not think we have the kids names on the bank accounts. Gotta get that covered. Not much there, but it is what it is! LOL

Gotta run! Wishng you a great Easter. He is Risen! I will see you tomorrow afternoon! When all is quiet once again at this abode!
magpie said…
oh the show is E-I
Educational and Informative

magpie said…
Have a Wonderfully Eastery Week-end, Lolly and Jack and all the Family

magpie said…
disappearing for awhile,
forgot it's time to eat!

"See Ya'all Later, Pals "

Judie said…
You are correct, Shirley. There is unrelenting anger and resentment among the three siblings. They do not communicate. He could not have closed the account and taken the money if all three had been named and, therefore, required to be present.

♪♫♪♫ Happy Birthday to Lynne ♪♪♫♫ Wishing you a wonderful day.

stronghunter said…
No, Will and Susan are beneficiaries. The lawyer just suggested that they should be have extra consideration until they were old enough to have established themselves.

We do not expect that their father will do anything for them.
stronghunter said…
When my mother died, I think my name was on the account. Not sure at this point. I was in the middle of divorce and we had to be careful to protect everyone's interests. It got a bit complicated, but we survived it.
stronghunter said…
Happy birthday, Grannyblt! ♪♪♪
stronghunter said…
☺ ↕ ☺ ♀ í ☺ ♀ ♪

Well, I can make one kind of musical note.
stronghunter said…
I do hope there will not be any anger between my children over my will or anything else.

My two brothers and I sat down and discussed things. We were able to agree on things pretty easily.
stronghunter said…
Must get going. Hope Hunter's game is going well.
Mema Jo said…
I must get going, too

stronghunter said…
Goodness, I just looked at my leg where I crashed into the dog barricade awhile ago. The bruise goes from a little below my knee down to the top of my foot. Healing is happening. But I will be wearing long pants for awhile.
stronghunter said…
Looks like you are wonderful at creating musical notes, Jo.

I really must go.

Judie said…
Shirley, you go girl!

Alt+3 = single note
Alt+4 = double note

Don't know where/how others get their fancy stuff.

Headed to the scullery to do some food prep ahead for next few days and to take care of laundry.

Judie said…
Oooooh! Wish the crib rails were higher and tighter. Both babes near the side looking out into the world.

Well I told my boss or one of the many boss we have this morning when I went to work that I will not being doing what they had me do last week I knew with my past history my limitation that it would bother my neck But they insisted of just try it this week Well the week came and gone and now I hurt and I should have to hurt on a daily basis now that I can't do what I have done in the past With our inventory being bad again this year They want only dept mgr to do price changes etc Well that is what I have always done but not any more
My restrictions if you recall is 20lb push pull or pickup and nothing over the head and shoulders Well when you put lots of small boxes on a cart that will be more that 20lbs I tried last week just to do the small boxes and the repetition of stocking which is also listed as a limitation That killed me I know that they don't give a damn but I have to look after ME and I am not going to go around hurting I told them this am what I was going to do Rollbacks , deleting list etc and that would keep me busy Well no one argued with me I know they are furious with me but IT IS TWO workman comp past injuries and they are just gonna have to accept my limitation like they have in the past
JudyE said…
Funny with my Window Starter 7 lap top my ATL key will now let me do any symbols
