Good morning to all ♥
Just signed in to this Fresh New Monday Thread - Thanks Steve...

Any chance of a Ground report on our
Juvies being around the nest. We have
only been seeing the adults recently.

Good luck with your Pearly whites, Janet. You have a beautiful

Hoda said...

Good morning.
Thank you STEVE/ JANET.

Off to explore my day.
Blessed Be and Blessings to All

Judie said...

Good early afternoon.

Thank you Steve for the fresh Monday morning thread and congratulations to Janet on her new feather.

Shirley, what did I miss? George is sick? I'm so sorry.

I posted a comment last night but it seems that the morning post simply repeated itself.

I remember I congratulated the college grad.

grannyblt said...

Good afternoon eagle buds

Thank you for the new thread Steve

Just washed a couple of windows while listening to Mom's CD collection. Need to weed out some of them. The one playing now is a Carpenters album and the song was "Rainy Days and Mondays". And of course it is Monday and it is rainy. I'll keep that one.

Prayers for all in need.

Judie said...

It is time to share a sad and heart-breaking decision that Darth and I have had to make.

We have waited 18 months too long to accept that Audrey and Grace are simply not the best fit for any of us and never will be. We soft-heartedly kept believing, wishing that the tide would turn.

We prefer true companion furbabies (think of Skippi) and our two are still aloof, literally untouchable, and while they run when they see the spray bottle, have continued to destroy several large oriental rugs.

We are in the process of gathering paperwork, obtaining vet records, etc. in preparation for the return which must wait until a foster family is available.

We wish the outcome had been what we have experienced in the past but that is not going to happen.

We have considered a return to our preferred Siamese breed but the Siamese rescue group (the VA arm of the TX rescue for Skippi) are extraordinarily cautious and we now have a "black mark" against us.

No need for comments. Just finally decided to share and to let you all know that I am indeed sad and down-in-the dumps, as is Darth.

Off to do puttering things. BBL

stronghunter said...

Oh, Judie, I am so sorry to read this. You are such good fur parents, but sometimes things just don't work out.

Janet said...

good afternoon.

JUDIE: big warm loving hugs.

heading to get the smile polished. would rather play in the pool.

did earlier, but, never enough.
last night when I took the girls out for their last potty break, @ 11 p.m. it was warm and I hopped right in and had a swim just before bed.

maybe the dentist could provide a pool for me to float in while my teeth are cleaned?


stronghunter said...

On George . . . He has a bladder infection and thyroid problems. I have medication for the thyroid. They gave him a shot for the bladder problems because he doesn't tolerate the antibiotic pills well.

He has lost weight, so I'm trying to find a food he enjoys. In his younger days, George weighed about 18 pounds, and we were trying to get him to slim down. Now he weighs a bit under 10 pounds.

stronghunter said...

Trying to picture you and the dentist floating in a pool while you're getting your teeth cleaned, Janet.

JudyE said...


ON LUNCH to find a new thread when I signed on



JudyE said...

nest is MT at this time

Lolly said...


Oh, Judie! My heart breaks for you and perfectly understand. I, too, have to have a kitty that is loving. I questioned about getting a kitten but it has been awesome! And, having her be Siamese is just perfect. I wish the same for you.

Have put up a gate to keep dogs out if the utility room and therefore out of the kitty food and (yucko) the cat box. Hoping it works out. She was around dogs at the foster home.

Got out early into the yard. Only 94 now. Sad when you think 94 is low. Lol

Andy, enjoy CO! Would love to go again, but will have to wait until Nov.

Shirley, how old is George? So sorry he is sick. He has lost a lot of weight.

Just waiting for the Fritz group!

stronghunter said...

Lolly, George turned 17 in June. He is a senior citizen.

stronghunter said...

Siamese cats sound like fun. I've never had one, but one of my friends did and I remember hearing kitty talk from outside her apartment. Very talkative and quite loud.

stronghunter said...

Almost time to go get Hunter from camp. Tomorrow, they go to the water park. Later on is a baseball game in Richmond.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

T-Bird's biopsy came back with just Barrett's esophagus. Nothing bad. God is good all the time.


Hoda said...

Good to hear SHAR
Thank you

JudyE said...

KNOCK knock

Ding Dong

May I come in

just home from

slo day on blog

MT nest at the present time

SHARON glad the biopsy is just that not positive what that is But you seem pleased with it

JudyE said...

SHIRLEY does Hunter like the camp??

Jordyn loves her camp they do so much

JudyE said...

I see the nest temp is 78° sure wish that was here

I said I wasn't complaining about the heat HA HA we were in the lo 90s today but 89° now I think our lo this am was 84°

stronghunter said...

Hunter likes the camp. He complains sometimes, but he wants to go. He enjoys the water park and field trips.

Glad to see that Jordyn loves her camp. Hope she still likes things like that when she is a teenager.

stronghunter said...

Know all about keeping the dog away from the cat box, Lolly. Read somewhere that cat poop might even be nutritious for dogs. Oh my.

Sandi said...

Hi all!

Judie, I'm sorry to hear that things have not worked out with Audrey and Grace. You certainly gave them plenty of time to warm up to you and Darth.

Shar, good news that Thelma doesn't have anything more serious, even though I have no idea what Barrett's esophagus is.

Waiting for the temps to drop just a little more and then I will be taking a break from the AC. The high tomorrow is supposed to be 78 degrees!

Finished reading Nineteen Minutes this afternoon - interesting read about a school shooting and the subsequent trial. Author is Jodi Piccoult.

I will see everyone in the early AM - goodnight.

JudyE said...

I know you all know of hipaa law
Well my asst mgr broke that law One of our merchandiser I guess is what he is called Last week he was talking to my asst Chris and he mentioned me (gave me a compliment) She told him I was absent because of shingles I was shocked that she would say something to him.
I did talk with my store mgr didn't mention names I said I didn't want to be a tattle teller and didn't want to get anyone in trouble but he needs to go over with the mgmt staff the rules to the HIPAA law

Mema Jo said...

Good evening ♥

Sharon - good news for Thelma !

Lolly - enjoy your company and especially that (big) PUPPY DOG.

Heading in for about 2 hrs TV

Chillin' down out there now
Like Sandi - tomorrow open the house

BBL to say goodnight
(If I don't dose off)

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

JudyE, I am not sure that HIPAA covers your employer. I think it is strictly for the healthcare industry.

stronghunter said...

Glad to learn that Thelma got good news about her tests.

Time for me to say good night and head upstairs.

SED, everyone.

JudyE said...

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
Bless this Nest
and all

Judie said...

Very good news for Thelma. Hope she heals quickly.

Yep, had windows (house type) open this afternoon and likely again tomorrow. Would love this weather all year.

Shirley, sorry about George and hope he responds quickly to the meds. Glad Hunter is liking camp and his appetite has returned.

Heading to the pillows. May try to read a few pages. Tired tonight.

Sandperson is packed and nearly out the door. Have put out an APB for Jufie - MIA for some days now and suspect he and Hoda may be together in brownie land.

Restful sleep for all.

paula eagleholic said... sorry about the cats.

Hope to open the house tomorrow too..quite windy here today.

Ordered shower gift online and picked up that.

Mema Jo said...

TV shows were entertaining....
Time now to rest my head....

Tomorrow should be a beautiful day
Thinking about getting a hair do earlier then my usual week. Just want to get perked-up a bit.

Talk to all you special friends in the morning.........


paula eagleholic said...

Uh love

Ah got the windows open.

SED love and hugs for all.

Janet said...

late good evening. another great day with the gal pals.

dental appt. :P had a different hygienist today....I am working thru dental phobia. even though I had my numbing mouth rinse she managed to cause pain....which I QUICKLY related to her.....made me jumpy the rest of the time...lots of deeeepppp slow "regular" hygienist works Tuesdays and Thursdays. I wish they had thought of that when they called us/me and booked a Monday appt.

I made it though.

rest of the day, great.

one more day with the gal pals.

tired now. hitting the hay. denting the pillows. making use of sleepy dust.

SED to all

Sandi said...

Goodorming my eagle friends. Nest looks and sounds MT this morning. 63 degrees here with a high of 76 today - I'll take that!

Janet, don't think a person in the world is really excited about visiting the dentist, even for a routine cleaning! Imagine going to work at a job every day where you know the people you are going to see hate being there! At least you know your clients LOVE the service you provide for them!

Shirley, poor old George. Hope the new meds work for him.

Lolly, hope the dogs and Skippi are getting along - at least Skippi has already been around dogs, though not a puppy the size of Cosmo! Congrats to Joseph on reaching a height milestone!! Soon, you'll be looking up at him! :)

Bella goes to the vet for her annual check up and a 3-year rabies shot this afternoon.

Prayers continue for Jo and for Larry.

Have agreat day all!

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle buds

WOW 55° at the nest I am sooooo jealous for me 82° now

nest is MT

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Almost time to head out for Y Camp.


grannyblt said...

GM all

53 here and 65 in the house. I'm almost tempted to turn on the heat to get the chill off. Should be warmer by the weekend.

Judie, I am sorry to hear that the cats didn't work out for you. I got my cat William as a kitten, thinking I could mold his personality, but not so.

I need to Lollypalloze a bit as my brother and wife and cat are headed back to VA and will stop here for a night or two. Doubt if I can get bro to do any handyman things--his Mother-in-law kept him busy.

Will keep all in prayer.

Mema Jo said...

Good cool crisp morning to all ♥
I love this weather - gets you up and moving as soon as your feet hit the floor & you get your cup of coffee.

No plans for the day
Just need to fill out some med forms
I wish I would keep a ledger as to what happened when......... Too much going on..

Sandi - good thoughts on professions! Nice to be able to make your clients Smile.

Enjoy your brief company Lynne.

stronghunter said...

Hunter should be off to water park about now. A pretty day in Fredericksburg.

stronghunter said...

YMCA Waterpark

stronghunter said...

Breezy at the nest. No eagles in view.

Judie said...

Good morning.

First, the vet we've had for nearly 20 years returned our call yesterday and is mailing the required "vet" paperwork. He also volunteered that he would vouch for us as good furbaby parents. We are thankful. Have taken updated pictures of the girls as required.

Have looked again at the Siamese rescue group which is located down near Shirley, about 50 miles away.

Janet, I make appointments only on a day when my preferred hygienist is working.

Windows open. Sunshine pouring in. Such a beauteous day.

Plan to catch up on laundry, Dirt Devil the kitchen floor, just putter about.

I shall return.

NCSuzan said...

Judie, thank you for making this day brighter!

Kay said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds !!!

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood and I'm about to venture out for my first errand run since the hospitalization. All systems are up and running so the trip to MI is a go. Yeah !

I must be some kinda nut, for I love to go to the dentist for routine cleaning. Both of his hygienists are super gals and I love the feeling of clean, clean teeth. I don't like it so much on the rare occasion when a cavity is found, of course.

JUDIE, hope another home for Grace n' Audrey can be found soon, paving the way for you and Darth to find a Siamese or two who will be a better fit for your home. You gave it more than the ol' college try and should have no regrets.

Oh, JO, doncha' just hate those med forms and all the red tape ?

LYNNE1, here's hoping your bro has some energy left for a task or two at your place.

SANDI, you're keeping the trail twixt your house and the vet clinic hot these days. Lucky dogs, Bella n' Jenni !

SHIRLEY and JUDYE, so glad the grands love summer camps ! Those days are over for all of mine and I miss their camping tales.

Love and prayers for all !!!


stronghunter said...

Happy to see that you are looking at Siamese kitty adoptions, Judie.

We made a change in dentists several years ago, and we're very happy that we did. I still feel guilty for subjecting my children to the first one. He would sneak up on you with that needle and stab you in the gums without pity.

I learned that it does not have to be so painful. Actually, it was Kathryn's ex who pointed out that our dentist was too rough. He was right about that. Too many people avoid the dentist because of fear of pain.

stronghunter said...

Haven't forgotten one trip to the dentist when I got a ticket on the way there--I'd forgotten to get a state inspection on time.

The cop did ask me where I was going, but he did not show any pity when I said I was on the way to the dentist.

It was a bad day.

JudyE said...

KAY as I read your its a beautiful day in the neighbor hood I thought of Mr Rogers song lol

on lunch as if you didn't figure that out

Mema Jo said...

Good evening ..
I will be watching about 2 hrs of TV this evening. I love the show called
We had pancakes for dinner - not as good as IHops but they were very
House is still opened - no need for AC
Have a pleasant evening
BBL to say goodnight

JudyE said...

There was a eagle that just poofed I heard first

JudyE said...

I was sitting watching tv and heard a eagle chirp jumped up to see poofing as I was sitting down

JudyE said...

adult is in nest now

JudyE said...

must be in NHZ I got a tail snip

Hoda said...

Yesterday during race start Dragon Boat Practice
I saw an eagle's nest. Two eagles flew in I think there is a Juvie in the nest.
A third HUGE adult eagle was fishing from the shore it took off.
My heart almost stopped!


JUDIE sorry about the cats.
It hurts you and DARTH so much.
You tried your utmost and no one can ask for more.
You have all of us to vouch for your efforts.

Hot here!
90's could not do the bicycle.
I did go to yoga though.
Coach asked last night to pace ourselves for exercise today. Tough practice last night and tough practice coming up Wednesday.
Races in Vernon on the 15/16 of August.

KAY how was the shopping?
Glad you will go to MI

When I said I will make myself scarce she called me chicken!!!
I never!!! Really??? Oh well stay out if her way I tell you!!!

Judie said...

Good grief, JudyE. Give us about a ten minute warning ahead of time when an eagle is going to be in the nest - I always arrive too late. lol

Nothing fancy tonight. Hamburger, sliced tomato, cucumber. Am tired. Laundry all day. Kitty search while waiting.

Spoke with Lolly about Skippi and the TX group. Does not seem to be the same organization after all. It was nice to hear Lolly's voice and that of Cosmos.

Headed to put my feet up. BBL

Judie said...

Thank you Hoda.

Use caution when doing your dragon exercises. Wouldn't want any adorable RCMP officers to have to give mouth-to-mouth. lol Well, maybe we would!

So what's the Queen got her jewels in an uproar about now?

Going to try to finish watching the news then head for the pillows.

Sandperson is making a ruckus in the closet so will be on the way soon.

Night light is on. Restful sleep for all.

Hoda said...

Don't ask me JUDIE!
She just now told me to "duck hoda, I am about to throw my danders at you!!!"
I swear to my Maker all I am doing is staying out of the way!!!
No way to behave from a Queen Wannabe I would say.
Who am I to say though??? I will stick to my High Tea and crumpets!!!
Heaven Help Us!!!
Everyone stay out of her way!!!
The heat is getting to her I am sure!!!

Janet said...

good evening to all.

its been a lovely visit with my gal pals. they leave early in the a.m.

tom picks up the school bus tomorrow.

and...I go back to work...

and get ready to head to Gatlinburg sunday for the video shoot.

rollin' full steam ahead.

hope everyone is well

JUDIE: after sleeping on it, I decided to change my next dental apt to a day where my normal hygienist is working. I asked tom if he was willing to do the same and he was not. I said well that's fne, i'm going back to my normal hygienist. I didn't like this one. that will be resolved.

good night to all!

Lynne2 said...

tip toe tip toe tip toe and away I go. HEEEE HEEE HEEE HEEE!

Hoda said...

O.M.G. She tip toed through here!!!
Not Good!
Not Good at all!!!

Good night
God Bless Us All!

I think she absconded the Sandman!
I have not seen sight or sound of him!!!

One one thousand
Those are sheep that I have counted so far!
The night is but young even though it is early morning!!!

I am going to tell the RCMP on you!!!

Sandi said...

Goodorming my eagle friends. Nest looks and sounds MT.

58 degrees here this AM - I am sitting at the laptop with a blanket wrapped around me b/c I left too many windows open last night. Who would think a blanket in July!

Judie, I don't know a lot about cats but would it be better if you only had one rather than two? That way, s/he would be more inclined to bond with the people in the house rather than the other cat? Or can you have one cat that is still very aloof?

Hoda, I hope you are sleeping now!

Kay, glad you are back to feeling like yourself!

Tennis at 8am, then getting my fingers AND toes done, then hopefully headed to the beach with friends this afternoon (if it warms up enough to sit on the beach).

Prayers for Jo and Larry.

Have agreat day!

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds

Nest is MT as Sandi said t

Hoda said...

Absconded WITH the sandman she did


Janet said...

good morning all.

missing my gal pals already. always sad when they depart. chris has a CAT scan on the 8th. results on the 13th. anticipating chemo. I hope these two knuckleheads know how very much I love them and their friendship....

had such a good day yesterday. went to Ancient Archeology, you know, American Pickers store and some other places. Just hung out together.

Must refocus.

Hard to believe it is time to get the BUS already! hoo hiss!!!

HODA: please get some sleep. I think you might be delusional. lol (and i'm pleased to see you use to word abscond. I love that word. thought only I used it!)

everyone have a lovely day. holding you all close in my heart and thoughts.

Mema Jo said...

Good Wednesday morning to all ♥
Last evening I didn't return to the computer after my TV shows - just drifted into slumber land!

Here we are closing down the month of July - August is filled with b-days of those we know here on the blog and on FB. AND Lori should be getting butterflies !

Kay said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds !!!

JO, I'm thinking of LORI and those butterflies, too !

Hmmmm, headline seems to be Queen Wannabe May Have Absconded With The Sandman. It's selfish of me but I'm glad the alleged offense happened after he'd paid a call at my house.

JANET, it's grand that you and gal pals had such a good time. I'll be remembering Chris in prayer.

Thanks, SANDI ! I'm happy to be in the pink again and ready to hit the road for MI tomorrow morning. Proved to myself that my stamina level is okay by doing the errand run yesterday--putting things away once home, etc.. Will be making stops about every two hours on the way just be be sure I get some exercise and a refreshing break from driving. Seth doesn't drive and probably never will, but he's good company and that will make the trip very pleasant, I'm sure !

Love and prayers for all !!!
