New thread.


stronghunter said…
Good morning, Steve! Thanks for the new thread. I will spread the word.
stronghunter said…
Fresh green leaf but no eagles visible at the nest.
stronghunter said…
Wow! Lots of stuff going on at your house, Janet. Keep us posted.

Hunter is at Y-Camp this morning. He does have an appointment mid-day, but I am planning to pick him up for the appointment and then take him back. Much better for him than so much TV and video games.
Mema Jo said…
Good morning again ♥
Thanks Shirley for the call over and enjoy that beautiful feather.
I am sure Hunter welcomes his Y-camp with friends his own age. It sure breaks up the summer for the kids.

Jenny is visiting so I will return later. ♥
Sandi said…
Thanks Steve for the new week thread and thanks Shirley for the call over.

Boy, was it hot and humid on the tennis court - I think I sweated off last night's dinner calories and then some!

When I got home from tennis, Denny said he has been thinking about Jenni all morning, so I think this adoption is going to happen! :)

Jenni arrives at 1pm - I will check in later.
Judie said…
Good almost afternoon.

Thank you Steve for the fresh Monday thread and Shirley for hollern' at us.

MT nest. Breeze. Oh, lots of bear news if interested.

Good grief, Janet was so excited I thought she's been into some Nelson brownies. What a fun thing to be in a video. Oh, what's a bucket head?

Sandi, wishing a terrific outcome for Jenni and you and Denny.

Jo, more storms here later as well.

Lolly, happy gift finding for Jack.

Shirley, enjoy some down time from grandmommying. You deserve a little free time.

May begin to sort through a gazillion pages of lecture notes. Had started that then stopped. Really want to get them sorted, toss the unneeded, put the relevant stuff in a larger binder.

But FIRST, a glass of lemonade. That should help.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
Good afternoon my eagle budlets. Today I celebrate 5 years clean!!! :) So grateful for all the love and encouragement I have always gotten here.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
I think this juvie has a fish stuck in his talons. He is eating now but been going back and forth in the nest and then mantling.
Hoda said…
Good morning.
Congratulations SHAR.

SANDI the 10th Anniversary celebrations were terrific. Picture on FB article from the Nelson Star.

Glad you were safe last night back east.

I know so much gratitude in my life...Blessed Be.

Let us know about DENNY's decision. Either way is good. He seems to be honest with his feelings and that is always a good thing to know when he is ready. Staying present with Love and Light.
Ms Bookworm said…
Good Morning/Afternoon, Everyone,

Shar, CONGRATULATIONS!!! That's a wonderful accomplishment! So proud of you!!!

Oops--Steve, thank you for the new thread!

Lolly, so glad you found the stone that came out of your ring!
Especially since it means so much to you! Sounds like Skippi likes her new home! Fantastic! She's a sweetie, for sure!

Prayers continue for Keshia. Hope they find just the right treatment for her!

Sandi, hope it works out for you and Denny and Jenni. She sounds very sweet!

Well, got some work to do for the doctor, so need to go work on reports. Will be back later. Have a great day, everyone! I ♥ us!
Mema Jo said…
Congratulations Sharon !

I've been watching the lunch time in the nest... Wonder if he brought it in all on his own?
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
Jo, a parent brought in the food.
Judie said…
Congratulations Shar. ( I keep forgetting the new moniker). Difficult but so worth the rewards.

Anxiously waiting to read the outcome for Jenni.

Hi Hoda and Andy.

Back to sorting. Bye

JudyE said…
Knock knock

door bell is broke

On lunch and find a NEW THREAD





couldn't ask for much more

JudyE said…
and a juvie is in the nest
JudyE said…
here is a video of a eagle nest beeing moved

eagle nest moved top of tower taken off
Judie said…
Hi all,

Dark, thunder, lightening here. Rain must be on the way.

Going to shut down.

Everyone stay in and stay safe, please. BBL
Sandi said…
Hi all! Jenni Sue is officially a Roberts! It took Denny about 2 1/2 minutes of holding her before he unsnapped her leash, handed it to the lady who has been fostering Jenni, and said, "She's ours!"

She and Bella are doing just fine. Barbara will be able to get me all of Jenni's vet records since she's only been owned by one person her whole life, and will also get me Jenni's original mom's name and phone number so I can call her and tell her how well-loved Jenni will be.

I'm happy! :)
JudyE said…
congratulations on the new addition SANDI
JudyE said…
having issues getting the live cam Was froze when I got home and now keeping getting timed out message from google with the little square frowny face
JudyE said…
now I am getting the message after the spinney circle like its trying to come up The selected item is currently not available
JudyE said…
and the still is BLACK also
JudyE said…
I have a rash the pharmasict thinks its prickly heat I am not a baby LOL

and it is right along the top of by bra line on one side only what a pia I noticed it Sun thinking something bit me NOT tiny blistery looking things and the funny thing is a gal at work Dottie has it on the opposite side before we knew it was prickly heat was worried
JudyE said…
message on top of still cam Connection to video source Eagle Cam like we use to get when it went out

We are having the worst luck with the cam this year aren't we?

ok I guess I will go play BBIALW
JudyE said…
I pad allergy just on news NICKEL

a 9 year old boy has it and now they are warning others also can be in computers, laptops, mouses etc I guess he had a reaction of dermatitis
I would have never thought of it
Apple computers were the only ones tested so far

This is your public service announcement for the day

Mema Jo said…
Judy - prickly rash can be Shingles
Get it checked out
Mema Jo said…
The rain has started in my valley

Steady downpour - no lightening or thunder yet........

WHOOPS - Thunder boomer just now

Mema Jo said…
Happy Happy now that Bella has a new furever friend. Bless you Sandi and Denny for taking Jenni ♥
Hoda said…
So very happy for JENNI SANDI. Blessings to you and DENNY.
He is a classy chap.

Let us know when you find a link to MICHAEL'S Guatamala trip JO.

Off to yoga and Dragon Boating.

We had some rain today.
The skies are Stormy.
I wonder if we will actually be able to take the Dragon out this evening.

Yoga for sure.
Lolly said…
Yea, Jenni has a new forever home! Awesome and so great you will be able to tell her former owner.

I found at Best Buy a new cover for Jack's Kindle. Our Kindles are the original one and covers come in all sizes. Could not get one on line because of that. I think he will like the one I bought. He has worn out the cover that he has.

Laurel went to the doctor today. He said the second break is healing and now he wants her to move it. She goes back in 6 weeks. This is good. Prayers for her to have patience!
JudyE said…
JO I do have my annual appt on the 17th I think that is the date they gave me They will give me a reminder call the day before Lucked out on that
The rash really doesn't itch which is odd I think it feels weird I guess that may be the prickly feeling LOL but where I have it under the arm area in the stretch marks its sore but thats from thin skin I think I will find out this week
Mema Jo said…
Hoda - the link is on my FB page - it is from the church who is sponsoring this mission. Only one picture for today and it says:....
Calvary United Methodist Church of Frederick, Maryland The VIM team arrived at their lodging destination yesterday evening. Today they are at the job site and work has begun! They are up in the mountains about 7,000 feet, weather is cool and there is lots of work to be done. Everyone is fine.
JudyE said…
on now now my mind is wondering is it Shingles looked at pic on line Lets hope its not being it not itchy or burning makes me think its not I heard they were painful and I am not in pain beside the on that is on the stretch mark LOL
Lolly said…
Going to shut down. We are without electricity. Thunder, a little rain and no electricity. Not fun!
Janet said…
good late afternoon. dinner's just about done. ya'll hungry?

JUDIE: a bucket head is the same thing in our house as:

a naked butt monkey
a pickle
a pistol
a child who is misbehaving


No, no Nelson brownies here for me. BUT TOTAL excitement with the upcoming events.

SHAR: congrats!!!!!
SANDI: congrats to you as well! a new forever friend!
LOLLY: amazing about your ring!
JUDYE: I second that opinion. MIGHT be prickly heat, BUT, that doesn't make sense. If corn starch, etc normal stuff doesn't make it go away, GET CHECKED.

Busy day here. So much for lazy rainy day. But I couldn't stand to be inside. The sun was out til a couple hours ago. I worked in the yard...visited with the neighbor.

New hot tub cover arrived today! woot woot! I can hardly wait til it is working again. One more part to come in.

I did some house work. Laundry and such. JUST SOOOO not in the mood. I WANT TO PLAY OUTSIDE.


We are getting a little rain, but not a lot. It is pretty gentle so it is absorbing. Things are starting to dry now....some leaves already dropping, yard dying.... it is July.

Okey dokey, getting ready to put dinner on the table!


Ms Bookworm said…
Hi, Gang,
Just finished sending the completed work to the doctor--phew!

Sandi, I'm SOOO habby for you, Denny, Bella, and Jenni! Sounds like this was just meant to be!
It's really neat that you can get in touch with Jenni's former owner to let her know she'll be just fine. God bless you!

Judy, I would go get that rash checked out. I've had shingles, and it started out just slightly irritating, but ended up just plain miserable! I hope yours isn't shingles, but it's best to know right away.

I think there have been thundershowers in our high desert and mountains today, as well as areas closer to Los Angeles. It's been cloudy/sunny and humid here.
Wish we would get some rain!

Ken is at the dentist right now, having his teeth whitened. He won't be able to eat or drink anything that might stain his teeth for 24 hours. Yikes, no coffee! Hope the time goes by quickly. I'm not sure whether he will have his permanent bridge when he gets home today, or if he has another appt. tomorrow.

Well, I'd better head for the kitchen and see what there is to have for dinner. beets, no condiments, no coffee or tea, no cranberry juice, this may be a challenge! Have a good evening, everyone, and I'll be back later with an update. I ♥ us!
JudyE said…
YEP I have the dr appt on the 17 at 12 my yearly check up for the patch
I will have her check it out
Lolly said…
Whew!! Electricity is back on. Was off for over an hour. We went for a short ride, came home and opened up the house....and it came back on!! Had to go around closing windows, but not complaining!!!
JudyE said…
I looked under the live feed and there is no message about the cam being off Anyone have both live and still no one has commented since I asked when I got home

gonna watch 24
JudyE said…
glad power is back on LOLLY
magpie said…
Big Super Duper Congratulations, Sharon....
Truly Wonderful, Bravo, Clap Clap Clap....! xoxo

magpie said…
Thanks for the cool report on Michael and his team-mates, Jo...

Oh Sandi and Denny and Jenni and Bella! Wonderful for all of you.....!!

Good Evening, Eagle Pals xo
magpie said…
got some rain here too, and a few thunders. Might be another one later or tomorrow.
Then I am looking forward to the Polar Air !

Janet: My my my, how Do you Do all that you Do? Sounds like you are having a good time, even in the midst of what might be thought of as "work" - Enjoy all your upcoming and ongoing events !

Andrea: I'd have a hard time going 24 hours without coffee...unless I could just sleep through it all!
Best Wishes on all the dental work
magpie said…
man oh man, Lolly, I bet an hour of Texas heat without power can make for some warm moments....we lost power last week for 6 hours, I was happy to hear the roar of electricity come back to the apartment

magpie said…
Saw some friends, (and James and his Dad ) and had a nice telephone visit with a good friend today....doesn't matter much what I did not get done, these things are always, welcome and valuable !

Shirley: Y-camp no doubt will have some good moments and create some good new memories for Hunter....and probably some new friends
And you get a little Shirley-only time too.
Hoping that Keshia is getting good treatment and is more comfortable today...

About time to run along....
Though I could and would like to Magpie along to everyone's posts...
"One Fine Day"... I will do that!

Prayers for Wellness, All Around, Plus, Safety, Serenity and Joy

God Bless Us,
Every One xoxox

magpie said…
I was going to say to Andrea:
Someone should invent
White Coffee !!

Okay, well, So Long Now
See Ya' Later, Precious Pals !!

Judie said…
My goodness, wait just a moment, please be patient, okay fine...


What? Translations: Welcome Jenni
Love Audrey and Grace
stronghunter said…
Congratulations, Sharon. You have a wonderful reason to be proud.

Glad to know Ken has found a dentist he likes, Andy.

Oh, Judie, sorting through all of those notes sounds challenging. Are you thinking you might use them again?

Only a half day of Y-Camp for Hunter today. He had an appointment at 1:00. I had thought I might take him back, but he would have only had a couple of hours, and it really looked like it might storm in the afternoon.
stronghunter said…
Congratulations on your new home, Jenni.

Hi, Margy! Yeah, six hours without power would be a problem. Sounds like you had a houseful when the big storm brought your neighbors downstairs to take shelter with you.

Glad the power did not stay off too long, Lolly. Texas in the summer without AC would be most unpleasant.
Judie said…
The ladies are satisfied and gone off to do their thing whatever that may be.

So much going on today.

Very happy for the new Roberts family member Jenni. That little lady has found a wonderful home.

Janet, you are ALMOST as bad as Hoda and Lolly. So happy you are happily busy but the three of you wear me out.

Andy, so interesting to remember when we encouraged you to finish school so you could find work. Well, now you seem to always have some. Hope Kubby is going to be finished soon with the dentist and happy with the results. Just think how we will be hearing about Lori's work when she finishes.

Jo, thank you for the update on Michael's group. Such a great contribution.

Lolly, sshhhhhh! Without electricity you cannot do your Lollypaloozing. Sip some wine. Hope Jack likes the new Kindle cover. Sure will be glad when Laurel's arm is fully healed.

JudyE, do be sure to checkout the rash. Shingles starts as an itchy rash (adult chicken pox).

Judie said…
See the time and have roused Sandperson to begin packing a satchel. He's taking his raincoat, rain boots, and a thunder thingy.

Headed to watch some news then dent the pillows. Restful sleep for all.
Judie said…
Sandperson just asked about Kay. Says he plans to stop by her place but hasn't heard from her in days.
stronghunter said…
Hope you don't have shingles, Judy. Good that you have an appointment already set up.

Love reading about your excitement, Janet.

Thanks for sharing the information about the mission work, Jo. What a wonderful group of people.

And off Hoda goes to another action-filled day.

Keshia is still hospitalized. They will do another CT scan tomorrow. Kathryn is staying in touch with her.
stronghunter said…
Lots of yawning here. I had to get up earlier than usual to take Hunter to camp.

Going to say SED to everyone. See you tomorrow.
JudyE said…
2 1/2 weeks and LORI will be a NURSE that is just too cool

Security system is armed please be sure to use your code if out past curfew

Well I'm calling it a day
See ya in the am ☼ at Sycamore Sunrise Cyber Cafe

Mema Jo said…
Good late evening and yes, it is time to call it a day.

I watched Major Crimes and then

Judy I had mentioned over on FB about 5:53pm Both live feed and still cam down. Someone had mentioned power outage over at
Shephs'twn. Hope they are up/running
early tomorrow
Lolly said…
102 today, so yes, it was hot when the power went off. It was dark, too. Did not want to lite candles because of the heat and our battery lights are in the trailer which is at the dealers. So, flashlites did the trick! We were in the middle of grilling hamburgers so dinner did fine and we ate on the patio.

Hoda, you certainly looked cute in that hat, bu UT???? Really???? LOL

Dentist appointment Friday morning. Have a problem, think it might be a cracked tooth. It hurts but not terribly. Advil helps!

Going to read for a while. Nite all! SED!!
Janet said…
popping in late. drinking a glass of wine. almost (past truly) bedtime. winding down.

MAGPIE: JUDIE: I wish I were as energetic as LOLLY and HODA. I just do my own thing. Mostly, especially in the morning and early day I simply cannot stand to sit still!!!!! I love feeling accomplished and seeing things DONE!

When I sit still it means I am not well.

Now, I am tired. It is past my bedtime, BUT, was having trouble winding down tonight.

Work in the morning. Must get some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

SED to one and all!
Mema Jo said…


Happy Happy Birthday Judy ♥

Enjoy your special day and

have a fantastic year ahead

Mema Jo said…

Goodnight to all ♥


Sandi said…
Goodorming my eagle friends! No live cam this morning - hope it will be a simple fix for Steve's crew.

Happy birthday, Judy!! I thought the same thing as Jo when you mentioned that rash - shingles. Sure hope it's not.

Bella popped up as usual as soon as I got out of bed to go to the bathroom. But I couldn't get Jenni to come out of her crate. Guess she's not the early bird that Bella and I are. She didn't make one sound all night - just circled around in her crate, plopped down in her bed, and went to sleep.

I am guessing that Jenni didn't go for walks on a leash to pee - I bet she had a fenced yard. She does better when I take her outside without a leash and tell her to pee - doesn't run off. Actually, Jenni is a little too pudgy to run off anywhere - a little diet will be first on the agenda. She sure seems to love sitting in Denny's lap in the recliner which Denny loves. Bella only wants to sit in my lap and Bandit wasn't a lap dog at all.

Got lots of thunder and lightning and some rain during the night which scared Bella but didn't seem to bother Miss Jenni! More storms are in the forecast for today no tennis for me. My sister, brother-in-law, Madeline, Michael, and Daisy will be leaving after lunch. It has been a good visit (almost 3 weeks) but I'm ready to have the house back to just the 3 of us.

Prayers for Jo and for Larry.

Have a good day all.
Janet said…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUDYE! have a fabulous birthday sis and a superb year to follow!!!!! <3

Good morning to all! Middle of July. Cloudy and 72 here. Feels nice outside.

Heading to work in a bit. Have a great day!
JudyE said…
Good Morning Eagle Buds

Thanks for the Birthday Wishes

magpie said…
** Happy Birthday JudyE **

May this birthday be filled to the
brim with all your favorite things !

xoxo (( Birthday Hugs ))

magpie said…
July is a very BIG Birthday Month...

Lolly, hope it is an easy toother fix for your, and painless especially

Good Morning Eagle Pals... !!

Sounds like Jenni's first night in her new-forever home, went pretty smoothly, Sandi....You can tell we all are so happy for you
and Denny ! (and Bella !)

magpie said…
Janet, good take on your activities...busy life, busy woman,
sounds like you juggle things
pretty darn well!

Well, on to the day here...landlords coming at 10 for an annual home inspection for
safety, cleanliness, and repair
topics. Yikes !!
Well, "It's all Good" -
and I hope the things on my
"repair" list get attended to
quickly, i.e. Air Conditioning, and Parking light dusk to dawn light

Best Wishes for a Good Day,
to Every One in all our Eagle Corners

xoxox See Ya' Later !
Hoda said…
Happy Birthday JUDYE
Enjoy the day
Blessed Be the year.
Judie said…
Good morning.

♪♫♪♫ HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUDYE ♪♫♪♫ Wishing you a super terrific day that is the beginning of a super terrific year.

Lolly, hope the upcoming dentist visit will be an easy fix.

Sandi, Jenni seems to be such an easy going furbaby. Perhaps she slept in this morning because she was just tuckered out from the change in family. Bet a can of dog food she slept in her former owner's lap in a recliner. Well, now Denny has a new girlfriend.

Margy, hope the inspection goes smoothly and the repairs are done ASAP. AC and safety light are necessities.

Off to find the newspaper, watch some news, then tackle some papers.

Did I miss something along the way? Where is Kay? Is she okay?


Judie said…
Doing a Margy.

Shirley, hope Hunter has a good camp day and you have a great Shirley day.
Lolly said…
Good morning! Well guess what. The sun is shining and the electricity is off again. Grrrr! Jack is out on a drive to see if he can find where they are working. Neighbors on one side had electricity. Our house and the shop are without power and tthe electricity is from two different poles. Underground to the house but when the shop was built they brought power to it by lines from a pole in back.

We did get a half inch of rain last night which is good and they say more is coming tomorrow and Thursday. :)

I am on my iPad.

Happy Birthday, Judy. Wishing you a great day!

Sandi, so happy Miss Jenni is doing well. A lap dog is great.

Miss Skippi decided to attack toes this morning and when I moved them to get away she attackd my legs. Received a scratch and bled profusely! I am bandaged, sheets are washed but can not dry them.
Mema Jo said…
Good day to all. ♥

Skies are overcast with the chance of more TS today.. Still humid and so very close out there - waiting for the cooler weather tomorrow and Thursday. Be a relief for sure.

Mema Jo said…
I did email Steve about our cams...
There could still be power outages down in Sheph'twn area.

I am going in to see Dr around 3:15 - just to get checked out as breathing has been a bit labored in this weather and in the AC
Mema Jo said…
Atlanta twins were born on this date last year - Trying to find some articles about the b-day Bash!

Mema Jo said…
Going to email KAY
Concerned for sure.......... I
don't remember any travel plans for her........ Need to find her and Penny
magpie said…
Wheeee !

don't know about live feed, but
Still Cam is back on :)

Thanks Jo
Thanks Steve

magpie said…
Ok, Jo.....get thee to the doctor...
very good idea....Hoping and Praying for some relief for you...

The humidity is oppressive, for sure,
the heat, as well

magpie said…
Oh Lolly....
I'd share this room air conditioner with you if I could !
oh bother! Cat Scratches....
so sorry about that also !!
magpie said…
Will be happy to hear any news regarding Kay.....

Yep, we miss our pals when we don't SEE them one way or another for sure...

magpie said…
Inspection visit was fine...
this property management company has lots of rentals.....
but my A/C is being scoped out for
reasonable repair/replacement prices, and the Parking lot light issue will be reported to Potomac Edison AGAIN, guess they have been
pretty busy with the whole year's weather situations

Not I can go back to organizing, tossing, boxing up, and recycling projects

xo See Y'All Later !
stronghunter said…
Good morning,

Today is water park day for Hunter at the Y. They will be traveling to another Y facility that has a fantastic pool with all kinds of slides, etc. I remember the first time he went there, he said the slide was so tall that you would go down so fast you would black out.

stronghunter said…
Have fun with your projects, Margy. Hope all of those repairs get taken care of promptly.
Mema Jo said…


Mema Jo said…
Man did you hear that CLUNK
on the live feed????? lol
magpie said…
Oh I see a Bit of an Eaglet on the Still Cam....

Nope, Jo, did not hear the clunk :)
cause I don't have live feed

Thanks for the Alert though !!!

NCSuzan said…
Jo, so sorry about the breathing. I dread going out in the heat. Just saw my lung dr. last week and the last thing she said was not to go out AND not to take a hot shower. Again the heat build up and breathing!

The Panda twins were not too enthused with their ice cakes. Soon fell asleep!

Judy, Happy Birthday to you!

Margy, in this heat it would be nice if the landlord could forgo cheapness and spend an extra dollar to see that you were not suffering.
JudyE said…
Hello on lunch a little earlier than normal\

Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
Happy, happy birthday JudyE!!!!
stronghunter said…
Yeah, Judy, somebody told us it is your birthday! :)
stronghunter said…
Pouring rain here. I do hope the kids at the Y got all of their water play in this morning. I'm pretty sure they did.
Lolly said…
AC was out again for about an hour. Thank goodness it was not any longer.

Running errands into town. Spent the morning doing Treasurer business and bookkeeing for a church group.
Judie said…
Good late afternoon.

Lolly, so sorry about the power outage and the scratch. Hope power is restored soon and the scratch heals quickly.

We had a storm go through with tornado warnings. Now, soon is shining, the sky is bright blue, and the humidity is oppressive. Please, Canada, send some cool air to us.

Margy, glad the inspection went well and really hope the AC takes priority.

Shirley, hope Hunter had fun today. Seems on the weather the storm mostly passed by your area.

Okay, mushroom cap burgers tonight with fresh tomato salad. Got most everything ready early afternoon. My work is almost done.


Mema Jo said…
I did have Dr appointment today at 3:15. I am very satisfied with his approach to this Friday's biopsy
He can control the oxygen level - breathing tube.
He said my whizzing was better - but I have been feeling worst -
meaning breathless with any activity......... he thinks that could be the emphysema.
I have been in the house all weekend - hopefully this humidity will leave and give me some relief - but then AC that is too cool isn't good either.

JudyE said…
Good News JO

Big Clunk on cam again big shake
JudyE said…
and we are back picking on the green leaaf what is left of it
JudyE said…
this one has white spots on both wing side top
Mema Jo said…
Thanks for all the pictures at the nest, Judy
magpie said…

Good show, Jo.....
once again, it is always good to read that you are pleased and satisfied with your Doctors...which means WE ARE TOO !!

Hoping the Polar Air settles in soon, that would be helpful....

Good Evening, Eagle Pals....

Wow, Judie, Tornado Warnings there, I did NOT realize that !!
Glad the warning has passed, now you can really enjoy that fine meal you have prepared
Hoda said…
Thank you for your report JO.
I am encouraged.
Hoping you get relief soon.

My sister Susan and her husband Dr David are coming up to Calgary and on to Banff Vancouver train ride.
Spectacular country they will go through.
She asked if we could share supper on the 23 rd of July.
They are overnighting 7 hours away in the town of Kamloops. I said yes I would go! Originally I thought I could not do it. Then decided to overnight and break my trip up a bit.
Susan had esophageal cancer not too long ago and she has had a miraculous recovery once they removed the esophagus. Some dietary restrictions but she has been travelling the world.
I could not not drive to visit with her since she is only seven hours away.
There is a controlled fire in Banff where she will board the train. I sent her an FYI on FB.
Good she travels with her own personal doctor!!!
JudyE said…
Sounds like the upstairs neighbors are moving something in the attic

scraping on the cam of sort
Judie said…
I am very tired tonight.

Have read the recent posts. So happy Hoda will do some traveling and see Susan.

Especially happy Jo is comfortable with the doctor and the biopsy plan for Friday.

May try to read a few pages in a new book; yes, I bought a book or two. Then lights out.

Sandperson will pack a satchel and depart in a short while. Wants to know where Kay is and also Paula.

Night light is on.

Restful sleep for all.
Janet said…
good Tuesday evening to all. sounds like everyone had a satisfactory day. mine was stressful; I spent the day wrastli' the Universe. At least, that's what it felt like. Whew.

Glad to call it a day. Blessed Be!

SED light love and hugs to all
Janet said…
wrastlin' meaning wrestling
clarification might be needed
Hoda said…
JANET The Universe NEVER NEVER NEVER Wrestles back...
That is the big joke and the joke is always on us!!!

Get some sleep. Hydrate and I hope you stop wrestling with yourself soon.

Love and Light coming your way friend.
Mema Jo said…
Going to close down for the day ♥

Hoda I am happy you can make the trip

Pleasant this evening - tomorrow should be wonderful weather. I am
going to have a visit from my Hedgesville gd - Melissa. She is bringing me lunch and will visit a few hours. Children are staying home with their dad and this is a Mema day
JudyE said…
Also thinking of KAY so I looked and The last email I have in my deleted file is from 26 June and there was no mention I went on vacation and had all email stopped I remember reading when I got back someone saying she was ill but don't remember who said it of what day
Mema Jo said…
I almost fell asleep - well I did dose off - during the 10:00 TV show.

Goodnight to all ♥

Hoda said…

Texted PAULA, all is well her end she is just busy.

Phoned KAY. Thank you LORI for the phone number.

KAY was not well and is still not up to par.
Last Thursday she started to throw up. Julie came and took Penny and they thought she had the flu. She got a bit better but diarrhea started. Julie came and got her and took her to the hospital. It turned out she had a lower bowel obstruction. They said it would straighten itself out...very uncomfortable to wait it out and she did not have energy to come to the blog or to open email JO.
She apologized because she knew we would be worried sick over her and yet she could not get to the computer. Her daugther is now with her from Michigan and they are looking well after her. She came back from the hospital after a series of very unpleasant tests...she called them barbaric. She however was very glad that science is advanced enough to be able to investigate and that we have the technology to find out what we have going on on the inside.
She is resting in her own bed. Does not eat much at all and is weak. It will take a while for her stomach to be able to deal with food.
I told her we would put her in prayers and send positive energy her way.
She is very grateful and she sends her apologies again that she worried us. OK FOLKS PRAYER CIRCLES FOR OUR KAY.
Blessed Be

Oh, Hoda, thank you so much for calling Kay and getting this information.

Prayers and wishes for a rapid recovery for Kay. I hope she will soon be strong enough to rejoin us on the blog.

Wishing everyone a good night. SED my friends. God bless.
Lolly said…
Cool day of high only 92. LOL. Actually it was really pleasant what with low humidity. We worked on the fence roses! Lots of trimming needed. And, now, what with kitty scratches and rose scratches I am a mess!
Lolly said…
Yes, prayers for Kay. I remember her saying she was under the weather.
Mema Jo said…
Kay -------- so relieved that Hoda called you and please know that we
are all offering prayers and good thoughts for your healing. I hope that call put a smile on your face and some warmth in your heart from all of us........ ♥
Lolly said…
We have been messaging on fb. So much fun! Wish all of you were able to participate! Megan joined us! We were talking about you, Kay, and then they started fighting over my pound cake! Lol.

Love you Kay, and sending prayers your way!
Prayers for Kay and for Jo's procedure

Sandi said…
Goodorming my eagle friends. nest looks MT - it sounds very windy in Shepherdstown. Looking gloomy here - had some rain last night but no severe weather. Clouds are supposed to clear out this morning but rain may cancel tennis at 8am.

Happy birthday Judie!! Enjoy your day - what's on the agenda??

Hoda, thank you so much for the update on Kay! How thoughtful of you to call her and report back to us! I have been suspicious that she hasn't emailed me to congratulate me on adopting Jenni, esp. since she is a doxie owner - now I know why. I'm happy to hear that she is on the mend, home from the hospital, and is getting TLC from her daughters.

The last of the company left yesterday. It was a great visit with family but I am ready for some down time!

Judy, how is the rash - better? worse?

Prayers for Jo, Kay, and Larry.

Have a great day all.

Just signed, scanned and returned Jenni's adoption agreement - she officially belongs to us! I have asked the DRNA volunteer for the previous owner's contact information and have also given permission for our contact info. to be shared if the owner would prefer to reach out to us.

Jenni is curled up and sound asleep on Denny's lap in the recliner. Bella is curled up and asleep in Jenni's bed - both are happy!

Raining here - no tennis for me this morning. The sun is shining on the nest in Shepherdstown.

Janet said…
Good morning to all.

HODA: you are right, as per the norm! :) I DID spend the day wrestling with myself. I kept getting in my own way!!!!!!!! Somedays are just like that I suppose. No matter how hard I tried to step back, let it be, I really didn't get past my own self.

Feeling better this morning. It is amazing....57 degrees this morning IN JULY. Unheard of!!!

Tom is taking his Uncle, who is well into his 70's today for some kind of procedure....not really sure. This is an uncle who ... well, if I Walk my own path to my own djembe beat....he makes his own drum and walks alone in the his own beat. I am sending them light , love and comfort for the highest and greatest good and would politely ask that you do the same. please and thank you. His name is Ralph.

Work today and I need to get moving.

Waking up slowly. I was sleeping very deeply when I was awakened by Beano jumping on my belly. Tom had gotten up, Beano was excited and bounced on me.

Everyone have a fantastic day. I am preparing to have a great day myself!

Light, love, hugs and smiles to each of you!!!! Namaste.
JudyE said…

Going to have lunch with gd - I know she will talk my ear off and then dinner is being brought in by my daughter and hubby. I am eating well. We have really been eating here at the house and not going out for dinner......

Today seems better out there - must have had rain last evening.

Lolly said…
Good morning! Cooler here, too. It was 65 this morning!! Presently up to 80. Possible rain tonight and then for the next several days. Praying for a good amount!! Laurel is in the flash flood area of the weather map. Wish we were! LOL Not to the high and dry area!

Thanks Jo, for the heads up. Saw both our juvies on the cam.

I am really slow moving this morning. Jack has gone to the doctor. Prayers please for no change or even improvement. ☺

Kids coming tomorrow for Jack's birthday. Will do a little prep today and save tomorrow morning for making his lemon meringue pie. Think I'll make two so he will have plenty!
Judie said…
Good late morning.

Thank you for the birthday wishes. Doing laundry (dryer heating element broke yesterday, Darth repaired) then out to dinner tonight. So begins year #70. All those years ago at this time I was only 5 hours old.

Best birthday gift ever: Hoda letting us know that Kay is improving at home and being well cared for.

Janet, wishing you a better day today and sending prayers for Ralph.

Sandi, congratulations on the adoption being a "done deal" with Jenni. No doubt her original owner will be be at peace knowing Jenni has a loving family.

Jo, enjoy your time with your Jenni and your taco dinner.

Laundry calls. BBL

NCSuzan said…
Judie, what a wonderful day to celebrate your arrival! Hope everyone treats you well today and forever!

JudyE said…
Ding Dong anyone home NO I see the nest is MT On lunch till 4 today I work till 6 :-(
I am doing a special project so didn't matter if I took my lunch at the 6hr mark Yeah

Love it when they want you to do something special the rules change LOL But that is anywhere I guess

My co mgr asked me to the signing like I was yesterday I told her No I couldn't because the past two days doing it has taken a toll on my neck As I had told them at the end of yesterday that I wasn't doing any of the sign over my head
She gave me a odd look of disapproval and turned as she did that I SAID WELL WALMART doesn't seem to care if I hurt BUT I DO
I felt I had to say it she then said Yes we do care as she was walking away

Walmart is going back to the old Blue for EDLP and Red for Rollback and Yellow for Clearance like they did years ago SAMS rules those were his colors so nice to see a Throw back with the signing and also the smocks will be comin back that I don't like because they are HOT don't know any of the dress code rules yet they are keeping it a secret What makes me mad is we all had to but tan, khaki brown pants and blue tops so all that money wasted it they go back to letting us change don't know anything on it yet In Aug that will change
Lolly said…
I just have to say that I have not laughed so much since we got this kitten. Skippi is a riot and I love her!

Of course, had another good laugh. Took a peek at fb and learned that our Hoda has been holding out of us!! Did you know she is a notorious Egyptian gangster??? Watch out what you say around her!!! Heaven help us!
Lynne2 said…
WELL. I guess it has been HODA who has been training EVIL JUFIE right under our noses behind our backs.
Mema Jo said…
I am just flabbergasted -
In our very own midst - a
Notorious Egyptian gangster
Posing as a Nelson Kootenay Rhythm Dragon paddler that used to be a Smoker - well I never...
this takes the cake...

I just love that this has been
revealed to all of us.........

ROFLMBO lol ♥♥♥♥
JudyE said…
juvies are in the nest now in the NEZ got pic before they went there I assume
JudyE said…
now in middle of nest
grannyblt said…
Happy Birthday Jufiie, I mean Judie. Hope your day was grand.
grannyblt said…
Thanks Ms gangster princess for calling Kay and reporting. She is added to our prayer list.
Judie said…
It has been a very nice day. Darth and I enjoyed dinner and dessert.

HOWEVER, I return home to find that Jufie and Hoda are in cahoots but I do not know what the ca or the hoots might be. Best I can gather is that Hoda believes herself to be an Egyptian Princess disguised as a gangster or a gangster disguised as an Egyptian Princess who was a smoker (well, one might argue about being a former smoker as certain substances are in abundance in Nelson).

Remember, that Cleopatra used to ride up and down the Nile on a barge - not such a leap of imagination to think of Hoda traveling up and down the river disguised in a Dragon boat.

All I can report is that if Jufie smells "funny" I will know he has been with Hoda.

So, what happened while I was enjoying dinner?

Lolly said…
Hoda has to bring over that picture to share. It is priceless!
Lolly said…
She had us all fooled into believing she is sweet!!! A gangster!! A notorious one at that!
Janet said…

Good evening to all

Thank you for the love and prayers for Uncle Ralph. Things went “ok” today. As with many men his age, its prostrate troubles…will have to return in a couple weeks for another procedure. With they could have just done it all today and been done and over with. Hate that for him..

SANDI: glad the adoption is a done deal! Woo hoo!
LOLLY: so happy that Skippi is bringing much laughter and joy into your life!

EVEN the THOUGHT of our dear sweet HODA as a notorious Egyptian Gangster…lol, oh my! I have this ridiculous pix in my head that causes much mirth!
And now I can picture poor JUDIE having to sniff the evil JUFIE and by association, the SANDMAN… my oh my

What a busy day, but a much better day today! Work was really good. Came home and started stowing things and getting my spare room in guest order for when Nancy and Chris, my Va Bch buds, my gal pals, my B’s visit in 2 weeks…. Woo hoo! Can hardly wait. If you remember, we are the three b’s Honey Bee (chris) Killer Bee (Nancy) and Queen Bee (me). Love love love those gals.

Then Chelsea and the kids came over. Its always busy when they are here…but today especially so.
Tom had been down in the barn, this big storage building we have in the back yard. I mean big barn like building.
While down there recently, he found a box of CHINA and another box FULL of children’s books. Well, the barn has never been fully cleaned out since we moved up here, it’s a bit here, a bit there. And after his parents died and before we moved in for 3 years, his family used much of this space as storage as the house was empty.

So since I have two sets of China, I asked Chelsea to look at it and she loved it. It is a complete 8 piece Dynasty China Set, beautiful in rust and orange hues. We unboxed it, washed it and boxed it in fresh boxes for her to take home. She is so happy!
Well Peggy, my neighbor across the street remembered that China. It had been my mom in law’s some years ago. Per Chelsea (and the internet) that particular design was discontinued back in 1985. It has one teeeeennnny tiiiiiny chip on the edge of one dessert plate. Other than that, in perfect shape. Made Chelsea’s day.

Then we dug out the box of books and the grandkids picked out some books, a majority of them actually to take home. My grandkids love to read.

I saved a few books for me and a couple for Olivia to read. One was THE BLACK STALLION. It was one of my all time favorites. I might just have to read it again too!

Everyone just left a bit ago. Its about shower time and get ready for work tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a lovely night. I’ll be sniffing that Sandman when he comes in tonight…and checking out for the evil Jufie…

SED all. Good night
Judie said…
Ah yes, now I have acquired the FB clue.

Of course, we know from watching mysteries that one of the tricks so often used by gangsters and other miscreants is to hide in plain sight. So, Hoda is disguised as an Egyptian Princess who is really an notorious gangster hiding out on a Dragon boat while pretending not to smoke.

So, the plot thickens!
Judie said…
Again, I thank you all for my birthday wishes. It was a nice day.

However, the Sandperson is late in departing and, in a fit of high dudgeon, has thrown sleepy dust in my face. He is on his way claiming, of course, he knows nothing about Jufie, gangsters, Egyptian princesses, or smoking funny stuff.

Night light is on. Restful sleep for all.
Hoda said…
I post a picture on FB of me in my prim and proper private college preparatory high school and what happens????

Well I never heard such a thing!!!

Love you JO!
JudyE said…
JUDIE MARGY AND KAY Check your email I mailed the pic to you since you can't see on FB I don't think HODA will mind this way you can rib her more LOL
HI HODA didn't know you were posting same time

Hoda said…
Here is the scoop!
A picture from my high school news paper was sent to me today.
The hairdo
The glasses
The preppy blouse
The cardigan
I broke out laughing
Who was this?
Fifty years ago this picture was taken!

So I posted it for a laugh!!!

What do my " friends" see?
I am shocked and dismayed!!!
I would have never thought that they would be so mean to me.
No names need to be mentioned!!!



Well it is true there under the picture in the school newspaper is the following caption:

"Senior thugs, led by notorious Egyptian gangster, take a break from the end of the year drag!"

Somehow cigarettes in our mouths and hand!!!
Must have been photo shopped!
Was there such a thing in 1967?
Oh wait maybe not!

I do not know how that cigarette got in my hand and no it was not the Nelson type cigarette either!!!

Would you believe that sweet little old lady me would be a gangsta??? I do not even rap!!!

That is my story and I am sticking to it!!!

Judie said…
Yeah, sure Hoda. Interesting that Jufie has a very different story.
Lolly said…
I knew it! She is claiming innocence!

Judie, is this typical of gangsters?

Was playing a word game on my iPad and the next thing I knew I was playing against Laurel. Majority of the time she beat me, but I won a few! Lol. It is wordament. It is like Big Bogle. Fun game!

Time to head towards the pillows. Careful what you say on here. You know......notorious gangsters!

Nite all! SED!
Judie said…
Oh so typical Lolly. Perhaps Hoda is one who was implanted into a notorious gangsta mob as a gang moll who has seduced the Evil Jufie. Likely they are sitting on a Dragon boat enjoying a toke or two under cover of darkness. As a good detective story, the plot thickens with every post.
Hoda said…
Good night

Happy Birthday to JACK
Praying for medical appointment tomorrow...Clean Bill of Health Please God.

Goodnight to all ♥
Lynne2 said…
well. It's bad enough all the things going on around here with the recent discovery of an Egyptian Gangsta Princess among us, and Evil Jufie causing all manner of problems. But now I find out that sweet Janet has been hiding a Black Stallion in her barn for who knows how long...
I have no doubt that I will return here tomorrow to read harrowing reports of the Evil Jufie claiming him for her own and riding off into the night performing all sorts of horrific schemes fueled by the smoke of a Gansta Princess now paddling alone with her special Nelson Cigarettes upon the Lake of Nefarious Souls.

I'm so afraid to go to sleep tonight....
Lynne2 said…
Janet said…
good morning! the evil JUFIE may NOT have MY black stallion! lol. I have wanted one of my own since childhood and now, lol. I have one. he he he. even if he is only in a book!

Everyone have a great day!
Mema Jo said…
Good morning to all ♥
I opened the blinds this morning and there sat my beautiful Eagle Statue.
Made me so very happy.

I am awaiting another gd visit this morning. My grandchildren's love and attention are so gratifying.

Think of Kay and praying for her comfort!

Mema Jo said…
Just where is our early bird, Sandi?
Perhaps out on the tennis court already.

For you Jack! I can smell those
lemon meringue pies in the oven!
Enjoy your day and have fun with your family........... ♥

Ms Bookworm said…
Good Morning, Everyone,

Hope your day was as special as you are!

Enjoy your lemon meringue pie!

Had a ridiculously busy day yesterday. My i-phone went wonky again yesterday morning, so ended up at the Verizon store to get a new one. It's got improved software, and isn't supposed to crash as the older versions keep doing lately with the latest upgrades.

A bit of frustration here this morning. Had to call the Travel Service Center about our 2 free airline tickets to Denver for
7/25. We've paid the taxes and all the extra charges on them, but haven't gotten our confirmation yet. Got voice mail, so left a message to call us ASAP.

PRAYERS FOR KAY! Hope she's feeling better by now!

Gotta run and take a shower, or Ken may go walk the mall without me. He's threatening to do so!
Must feed Emma first, too. Will try to check in later today. Have a good one, gang! I ♥ us!!!
Lolly said…
Good morning! So far just sprinkles here, but Laurel has had over 5 inches. Her backyard was covered with a couple inches and she has water in the house. Already in touch with folks to get ///////the carpet dry.

That was added by Skippi as she walked across the keyboard. I get no respect.

Thanks for the birthday wishes for Jack. Will pass them on.

Gotta get busy!!
Judie said…
Ah ha ha!

Barn? Black stallion? Jufie is laughing and asking if anyone has checked the dragon boat this morning. Says there were some reports of a black stallion rowing a dragon boat in a thick haze of smoke over the lake. Nelson RCMP are at a loss and completely confused.

Hmmmm. Wonder where the Nefarious Gangsta woman is? Likely in the Dragon boat giving instructions to the Black Stallion.
