Monday

Good Morning.

As you can see the cam has been centered on the nest.  We hoped to either move the cam mount up a bit, or try a different limb, but that was not possible this year.  The limb that the cam is on continues to deteriorate, and other live limbs are not big enough.

We plan a full upgrade of the cam next year, and we will engineer a mount that will allow for the optimum view.

Thanks again to our friend Nu, who was up in the nest for his ninth year.  The guy is fearless as he is hoisted up on a crane cable.

New thread.

Have fun canning tomatoes, Judie.

Good Morning Eagle Buds !!!

Wowee, zowie ! Many thanks to NU, STEVE and the NCTC staff ! The new aka NU NEST View is wonderful ! Looking forward to the camera upgrade next season, too.

And, thanks to STEVE for the new thread and to eagle eye JO for the call over. Your feathers are really adding up !

JUDIE, happy canning day---how grand it will be to have luscious tomatoes this coming winter.

SANDI, I'd love to think every one of those 382 days will be dandy and trouble free. May you weather any rough spots with your usual poise and grace !

SHIRLEY, hope you soon find that fourth for the bowling team and that you'll enjoy another great year in the Alley !

Autumn approaches and provides for many new beginnings. Wishing all much success.

Has LORI reported wha'sup on FB since graduation ?

This is truly a "dog days of summer" week and I haven't anything extra planned.

Love and prayers for all !!!

Lolly said…
Good morning! As always, feeling a little funny on the first day of school! In some ways missing the excitement! About this time I would be teaching the children how to walk in a line and I would be walking backwards! Lol

AC is out in Jack's shop. Repairman coming this afternoon. Tomorrow Jack goes to a ear and nose specialist. He has continuous congestion, also it is way past time for a hearing aid! Think I have finally convinced him. Did you know I mumble all the time? Lol

Wed he gets serious work done on his mouth. Preparing the gums to replace a crown. Ouch! Soup for dinner Wed.

Nothing on the agenda for me but serious Lollypaloozing!
Lolly said…
Just took a peek at the cam. That is a much better view! Thanks Steve, Nu, and crew!
Mema Jo said…
FB Per Lori
(Hope Lori doesn't mind my putting her info on here for all of us ♥)

August 19
No time to change the world this week - though I do like the thought! Working on moving stuff from MD to PA this week and next, and of course, studying for the test to get my nursing license.

August 23rd
I just packed up my Maryland house and sent it to storage in PA.
Mema Jo said…
All we need to make this day perfect is a visit from Belle and Shep

I guess we best not hold our breath!

Kay said…
JO, thank you so much for the LORI report! Since she posted that on FB I'm sure she doesn't mind your sharing it with those of us who haven't chosen to go there. Packing up her belongings from the MD house, etc. had to be time consuming and an emotional challenge. I'll be praying for her as she prepares for the licensing procedure. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Mema Jo said…
Getting lots of First day school pics on FB - Shirley did anyone get Hunter's picture before he went to the bus? Perhaps you can tell us how colorful he was! I hope he has a great year in school! Will he be playing football again this fall or have they started practicing already?
stronghunter said…
Hunter's first day is not until the day after Labor Day, Jo.
stronghunter said…
If I get a picture, it will be in the house or without Hunter's knowledge. I am sure he won't want me to follow him to the bus stop. We will see.
stronghunter said…
Shadows playing on the nest.
JudyE said…
Hello on lunch and yes I noticed the cam different angle that this am


THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD STEVE AND THE INFO ON THE NEST
SURE WISH WE KNEW IF THE EAGLES ARE IN THE AREA STILL WE HAVN'T SEEN THEM AT ALL
Mema Jo said…
Whoa - day after Labor Day
Shirley now that my 2 great granddaughters are living in VA - that is when they start school - Your comment about Hunter's first day just jogged my memory.I had been looking for their pics - lol

Oh no I didn't mean follow Hunter to the bus - I only meant going out the front door! You would be in deep trouble if he saw you taking his pic!
Mema Jo said…
JUDY = I put pics in the Momster album
stronghunter said…
You are right about that, Jo.
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
Good afternoon my eagle budlets. Hope all is well with your world!

Jo, how is Michael?
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
I had to take my brother-in-law's Basset hound to the vet to let him run across the Rainbow Bridge. Poor fella was so old and just not well at all. I held his little head in my heads, stared into his eyes and let him know that he was loved and was being set free. Such a spiritual experience. He is buried in the yard beside Buddy the Basset. I want to get a wooden carved sign that has Basset Hound Hill on the top and then Bandit and Buddy's names underneath.
Sandi said…
Hi all. Thanks Steve and everyone at NCTC for the new and improved cam view! Now if we just continue to have our eagle pair using this nest.

Well my first day of school did not go well at all. I was in the bathroom 4 times before I left this morning. Took some Immodium and hoped I would be OK. By 10am I thought for sure I was going to puke, also had chills and a killer headache. Made it til lunch time then managed to drive home. Slept for 2 hours. When I woke up my stomach felt a little better but the headache is still awful! I haven't been sick like this in years!!

Hopefully it's just a 24 hour thing.

Later.
grannyblt said…
Oh yuck, Sandi, guess you are glad you didn't have students. Hope it isn't food poisoning. Feel better..
JudyE said…
I really do love the new view of the nest and Belles Garden NU should have done some weeds while he was in the nest I just love that pic of his leg in the nest I showed several peeps at work they were all amazed
JudyE said…
SANDI and all check out Google

This was posted by Deb Stecyk: Thanks Deb
August 25 2014 - I was talking with Steve Chase this morning; the cam maintenance was completed ... (thanks Nu) they were not able to move the cam so they centered the cam on the nest as best as they could for now ... next year they plan to replace the entire cam system including an engineered mount to allow for optimum viewing.
If you would like to make a donation to help support the cost of the new cam system you can make your donation via the Friends of the National Conservation Training Center ... see link below
http://www.friendsofnctc.org/
Thanks to Nu who did the cam maintenance and to all the good folks at NCTC for all that they do to keep us connected to this beautiful bald eagle family...and thanks to everyone making a donation to help with the purchase of the new cam system that is planned for 2015...together we will reach our goal!!!
Mema Jo said…
JUDY - take a minute to read my remark to Deb's comment......

I had asked Deb a question about the donations: how does a person designate that their donation is Specifically used for the upgrading of the Eagle Cam? Any chance this was discussed with Steve? the donation form states "NCTC's important conservation training work and other conservation programs" of which there are so many. In the past when the Eaglet Momster group for the NCTC nest made a group donation we designated the Cam ...

I suggest we get a reply from Steve before making donations that the Friends of NCTC won't know it is for the CAM.........
Mema Jo said…
Feel better soon Sandi. Hope it is short lived!

Sharon - Michael is up/running.
I think he is good for a lot more miles.

JudyE said…
I totally agree JO I think Steve would have mentioned something to us
Deb did say she talked with him but I am not doing anything till we hear from him personally
JudyE said…
GREAT NEWS JO on Michael He sure is a trooper Miracle Michael

I guess I stuttered - lol

It is important enough to say twice
Judie said…
Evnin' all.

Lots accomplished in the scullery today. Legs and feet are not happy.

Shar, sorry about the Bassett hound. May he play forever.

Shirley, glad you were able to get so many bowling games completed. You are headed for Bowling with the Stars. Have marked my calendar for the first of the Hunter stories.

Jo, so happy Michael is better. He's my backup in case Darth runs off with some sweet young thing.

Sandi, so very sorry your first day at school was so awful. Hoping you are already feeling better.

I think I recall that Lori's licensing exam is on Sept. 8. She will ace that exam.

Headed to watch some news then check out Midsomer Murders.

Lolly said…
Oh, Sandi, so sorry!

Have talked with Laurel and all had a great day! Wahoo!
Last week Laurel met Jacob's teacher, told her he was tall. Obviously the teacher had no idea what Laurel meant but handled it well. You all have to understand, my Jacob is taller and bigger than most 6th graders and he is starting 4th grade. Laurel did say she has a student who is probably 6 ft. She sees a problem. I today her, and she agreed, that she has all the qualifications to talk with her new student. I talked with Joseph, who is at a new school, and he sounded happy! Yea for all the family!
Judie said…
Um, Lolly? How many glasses of wine have you enjoyed on the patio tonight? lol Glad everyone had a good first day back at school.

Judie said…
Will likely be heading to the pillows very early tonight. All day in the kitchen. Tired.

Sandperson is already rummaging around and packing a satchel. Will be on the way soon. Wants to know if a late-night check needs to be on the agenda for Hoda and Dudley. Well, we wouldn't want to interfere...

Night light is on. Restful sleep for all.
Lolly said…
No sitting out on the patio! Too HOT!!! Please forgive typos and auto correct. Using the iPad and hunting and pecking! LOL

Great day was had by all! Yea! Think I am going to stick my nose in a book. Uhhh....my kindle!
Mema Jo said…
Calling it an early night also

Sweet dreams

Goodnight to all ♥

Janet said…
good evening to all!!

so exciting about the cam! I wonder...how high IS the nest ?? it looks very very high in that tree...certainly higher than i'd consider going into any tree!

SANDI: hope you are feeling better!

SHAR: so sorry! your idea sounds lovely...

JUDIE: sounds as if you have busy day!

I have had a productive day myself.

I cleaned the house from front to back, did laundry....and our bountiful baskets came in Saturday, so I froze green peppers, corn, and carrots. I felt most productive. Made a heck of a mess in the kitchen while I was doing it....thankfully saved cleaning the kitchen for the very last!

Olivia worked extremely hard today and so as a reward we went out to Opry Mills Mall. (I am not a mall person). We walked around, had a cookie and she had a coffee. I guess we spent a couple hours there....

Back to work tomorrow. I do less work at work!!!! Going to work is ALMOST a day off for me!

Hope everyone rests well! SED, hugs and smiles to all!

Hi,

Really have to wind down. I'm supposed to have Luna at the vet's for surgery at 7:30 AM. She is having a nasty cyst removed.

I did try soaking the bee nest. The spray I get at the store just does not work. Kathryn's research says that it probably won't. They recommend soaking the nest, so I tried. Just have to be very careful so close to the foundation or we will have a flooded basement. I went out after dark so the bees would be in the nest. Supposedly it might just make them move elsewhere.

I hope they move far from here. Supposedly, they are good pollinators. Just can't have them stinging people who come to my house.

They don't seem awfully aggressive when it comes to stinging, but one did sting me.

Tommy says the stuff his company uses costs $150, and I told him that I will let him know, but I would prefer to take care of them myself.
stronghunter said…
So sorry about Bandit, Sharon. He will enjoy playing with Buddy. Basset hounds are so sweet.

Hope tomorrow is a better day for you, Sandi. Was it the first day for teachers? I hope you didn't have students today.
stronghunter said…
Lolly, Hunter has gone from being one of the smallest kids in the class to being one of the biggest.
stronghunter said…
Hope Michael is well, Jo.

I have to say good night. I am not used to getting up quite so early as I will need to tomorrow.

SED, everyone.

Good morning eagle buds

new view of the nest is still MT

Mema Jo said…
Good morning to all ♥

Good luck with Luna this morning Shirley

Sharon Sorry about Bandit - he had a very good life.

Concerns for Sandi - hoping to see her this morning but that may mean she is still not feeling up to par - hope she was able to stay home.
Mema Jo said…
65° this morning - should get up into the mid 80's. Really feels nice and the sun is shinning.

Nest is MT - really wish we could see Belle and Shep one day soon.
Mema Jo said…
Getting my one eyeglass lens today.
The one for left eye where I had cataract removed. It is for my close vision... I'll be so happy not to put my nose in the newspaper every morning! So if I'm not here for a while - you know why
Mema Jo said…
Sandi I hope none of your weekend guests have come down with the same ailment as you are experimenting.
stronghunter said…
Hi,

Was thinking the same thing about Sandi, Jo. Could be that they brought it to her. Hope she feels much better today.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
Good morning my eagle budlets. Make a great day!
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
I don't think I have mentioned this on here but Becky (Mattie and Justin's mom) has been in detox for 12 days. I am so grateful she is getting help. Today they are having to take her to the hospital to find out if she has a blood clot in her leg. Please say a prayer for her. I will let you know the outcome.

I LOVE US!
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
Update on Lauren from her Mom, Tammy:

Good Morning! Wanted to share our good news this morning. Lauren Brandon is being moved out of the ICU to a step down unit. After only four full post-op days!! This represents many accomplishments (weaning of several IV medications, several tubes & lines have been removed, along with other criteria she had to achieve).

Lauren has been amazingly strong in her determination and strength, both physically & spiritually. I would not be sharing the entire picture without saying she has had hours of intense suffering with pain of different types. Both day & night.

Yet, through it all we cry, pray, focus, and discuss all our many blessings. The nurse indicated last night that she bet we would all go on a big vacation to celebrate. Now while that certainly sounds amazing and is on our agenda, I had teared filled eyes and said, "I can't wait just to sit outside at home and look over and not see my girl so sick". That is my victory!

Today will be another busy day, hopefully filled with lots of rest in between. We have been up most all days and even the nights since in the unit. Lauren is looking better than her mom & dad now --- and that is exactly what we want!!!

Have a blessed day friends!
stronghunter said…
Got Luna delivered to the vet's. Stopped at the auto repair shop to have my brakes checked, and it turns out that I need some expensive work done. Having song of it done now. Brakes are important.

Hunter figured all is well as long as the car stops. But I look at things a bit differently.
Judie said…
Good morning.

Cheetahs are out and about investigating and looking so cute.

Shar, hope Becky can begin recovery without added complications.

Jo, enjoy seeing the world of newsprint more clearly.

Hoping Sandi is feeling much improved this morning.

Shirley, hope all goes easily with Luna today.

Sunshine and cool this morning here.

Not much on today's agenda. May try to tidy up the oriental in the kitchen with pinking shears then roll it up. Maybe make some pasghetti sauce.

Have a lovely day everyone.



Kay said…
Good Morning Eagle Buds !!!

Not hearing from SANDI first thing in the morning is worrisome, but I hope it just means she's sleeping off the bug!

SHAR, sorry about Bandit, but we know he's a happy camper now! So happy with the Lauren update--prayers continue. Mega prayers for Becky, too!

SHIRLEY, thinking of Luna with hopes for a quick rebound after surgery! Glad you got those brakes checked---yes, they ARE important!

JO, glad you'll soon be enjoying your morning newspaper to the fullest! I can't imagine starting my day without the Columbus Dispatch. I wind up my news session with their two crosswords and a word search and don't feel real good about the day unless I get that start! Creature of habit.

Hmmm, JUDIE, canning tomatoes yesterday and preparing pasghetti sauce today. Your kitchen must smell like heaven!

Love and prayers for all !!!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Lolly said…
Good morning!

Shirley, Joseph is always the tallest around but certainly not the biggest! He is 5' 9" but still a bean pole!! Jacob on the other had is soooo BIG! Apparently his teachers eyes bugged out when she saw him!! Bought shirts last week at the museums. Joseph's is adult medium and Jacob's adult large. LOL He is 9 for petes sake! His dad wears XXX Tall, Jacob is headed that way!

So during the night I knew Skippi was on the bed. Pulled the sheet over my head so she would not comes and expect to be petted. I was on my back, she sat right on my face! I giggled!

Very hot this week but we have a break in the temps coming and a slight chance of rain. Praying!

It is amazing how green it is for August. That 3 inch rain was amazing, but need much much more!

Friends who have winery in Napa....their wine is okay and so are the caves. Their winery is in a cave, however their home suffered damage.

My mother died 8 years ago this week. Thinking of her and missing her. We lived 500 miles apart, but I called her every night. It took me a long time to get over that routine.

Time to start my day! Yeah, I am slow but I have been outside for a while. Gotta do anything early before the extreme heat sets in.
Mema Jo said…
Just finished lunch - love those home grown tomatoes....

I keep checking our still cam in hopes of seeing a white head or tail. No luck so far....

I still have the house opened - slightest breeze coming through. Sun is just about ready to hit the back of the house.... then perchance AC will be turned on..
JudyE said…
HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO




on lunch
Sandi said…
Hi all - I am alive, not 100% well but alive. I decided to try going to school today - 1 long district meeting for the whole morning. At first I didn't think I was going to make it but started to feel better as the morning went on.

Then I came back to school and ate lunch. maybe I shouldn't have - feeling queasy again now.

Freyja didn't get sick, but Brian did. Since Lynnis was sick last week, I'm thinking Brian was incubating it and brought the virus to the beach. He is feeling better today as well.

Time for another meeting. Will check in from home. Thanks for worrying about me!
stronghunter said…
Hi Judy,

Enjoy your break.

Having some shoulder pain today. Told Kathryn I would like her to do the Luna pick-up
this evening. It seems we're a bit low on pain medicine around here, but I do have some aspirin. Think I'll enjoy a nap.


Mema Jo said…
Shirley - do you think 6 games did that? I hope you can find some Tylenol or Aleve......
Mema Jo said…
Good to hear that you are going to make it through the day, Sandi! Hope you have a restful and comfortable evening and night!

JUDY - you sure overdid your Hello
lol - right to the 'th degree.

Mema Jo said…
Just saw Bao Bao napping while momma enjoys her bamboo!

Cheetah cubs are inside with momma and are napping.

I always check on the baby Rhino - he is sprawled out and also napping.

I guess I could take the hint that it is nap time....... BBL
stronghunter said…
Don't really think the six games hurt my shoulder because it's my left shoulder and I bowl right-handed, Jo.
JudyE said…
Hello home from work 530 and its hot I wish it would rain its 92° feels like 101° This am it was so nice out felt like a fall day What happened Mr Sun came out and Mrs Clouds went on vacation and Mrs Rain dried up LOL

Gonna go get edgemucated LOL watching the news
JudyE said…
SANDI hope you continue to feel better
JudyE said…
I found out today that the 200 and some dollar Shingles vac is NO Pay with insurance YEAH suits me just fine Just got to wait I guess Will call the dr and ask her She probably will not tell me over the phone I bet Will probably have to make a appt Being I still have the twitches and itches with the nerve ending I think best not to get just yet I think anyway I just may call the nurse that is on call 24 7 with the health insurance They may be able to tell me
stronghunter said…
Good grief, Luna's vet bill is over $1,100. Kathryn got some pet insurance, but that is over the limit. Would have been $400 more if we had gotten the tooth extractions they suggested.
JudyE said…
In all the years I have watched this nest I haven't see it grow so much without Belle digging around Have you all seen it like this??? ok now to the news




pulled a Margy I wonder how she is??


stronghunter said…
JUDY, I got the shingles shot at Walgreens. Didn't need an appointment.
JudyE said…
WMT does the shingles shot also and I just want to be sure it is ok for me to take it
The pharmaist at my store said I should check with the Dr onset of the shingles was July 19 and about Aug 19 was the last lesion I still have redness which is clearing up from the center out and she thinks that is the reason I am still have nerve pain and itch So I need to ask someone when it is ok to get it
so if I must see the dr I will but I will first try the nurse at the hotline with my insurance They may be able to tell me I hope would save a expense to them as a dr appt MTBRL
JudyE said…
July 12 not the 19 the 19th was when I went to the dr DUH
stronghunter said…
Yes, several of us have seen plants growing in the nest, Judy.
JudyE said…
Thanks SHIRLEY I guess I just never noticed it in our nest
I have seen several others with forest like in them Hancock nest
JudyE said…
My neighbor just came over told me the lady is bottle feeding the kittens and said she is amazed they are so docile maybe mom didn't teach them about human yet LOL She came over to let me know they think they have the momma in the cage I walked over to look I think the mom was more white to her I did see her when I came home she was on my porch and she meowed at me Like saying where are my babies I left them here
I will keep a eye out just in case I am correct not being her

Luna is now a golden dog. That is what my husband called our cat after she racked up a big vet bill when she broke her jaw as a kitten. She lived to be 18,
Janet said…
good evening all. I am here and tired. think I stayed up a bit late last night. must get a bit more sleep.

average day. work was good. came home and Olivia and I got in the pool for a bit, then finished up school work.

my friend chris starts chemo in the morning....thinking of her .... talked to her a bit ago. she was preparing to go to bed.

so much going on. so many needing light and love. thinking of each of you....

(((hugs)))) and good night
Judie said…
Yes, Luna is a golden dog. Wishing Luna a complete recovery Shirley (and the same for your bank account).

Sandperson is already packing up. Will be on the way soon.

Night light is on. Restful sleep for all.
Mema Jo said…
I watched some TV this evening - nothing spectacular.

I do start at noon tomorrow my 3 days of CHEMO. Praying all will go as well as last time. Thanks for prayers & your thoughts of healing.

Prayers for Chris, Janet
Mema Jo said…
I know Wanda isn't on here but I will mention that my prayers are with her and the family because Gene's birthday would be tomorrow.
I'm sure it will be a sad day for them even though they are a strongly bonded family.
Mema Jo said…

Saying Goodnight to All my Friends

SED and AOYP

I love us ♥
Sandi said…
Goodorming my eagle friends. I am finally feeling like myself this morning!

Jo, prayers continue for you that your chemo this week goes smoothly without side effects, and that it continues to zap those cancer cells! I love you! ♥

Shirley, yikes on Luna's vet bill, but I have been there and done that (and then some) for Bandit, and Bella, and now Jenni! There is a credit card called Care Credit. If your vet accepts it (that's who told me about it), you can use it for big vet bills and take up to 12 months to pay the balance off, interest free. Just a thought.

Lolly, how is Skippy doing with her paw infection?

Long day for me - FINALLY get the day to work in my classroom and then this evening is Open House - Meet the Parents til 8:30pm.

Have agreat day all!
JudyE said…
Good Morning Eagle Buds

JudyE said…
I check out the photo albums from last year
Last year we had the tree view and both were in it on and off but always in the attic I was just curious so I check it out
Sure would be nice if we had that view to see if they were in the attic
Janet said…
good morning.

light and love, comfort and healing for all in need.

Wednesday. mid week. lots on the mind. hoping everyone has a good day.

Mema Jo said…
Good morning to all ♥
Sunny day here and temps aren't bad. I have umpteen hungry squirrels
on the deck. A bag of peanuts disappears very quickly !

Judy, I sure wish we could sight our Royal Couple just like you. I miss seeing them.

I haven't heard back yet from Steve concerning donations for the new cam for the 2015-2016 season.
Most of the eagle sites on FB are interested in donating through the Friends of NCTC group. We just need to be sure that group earmarks those as 'Cam" donations.

Judie said…
Good morning!

Jo, my thoughts will be with you today as always. Jufie will be hovering to keep you safe.

Cheetah cubs are all outside with mom. They are playing and wresting a bit and mom is doing a good job of supervising.

Sandi, long day so hoping all goes smoothly.

Vet credit card sounds like a possibility. Did not even know such a thing exists.

"do" day.

Wishing everyone the best day possible.
Mema Jo said…
Sandi - you sure do have a long day today - I hope it goes smoothly and that the open house is well attended by interested parents!

Mema Jo said…
I will be back on late afternoon or early evening. Thanks for prayers as I start this 2nd round of treatment.
I think it's time to look for an attractive Hat! lol and the problem is that I don't do hats well!

BBL
Kay said…
Good Morning Eagle Buds !!!

JO, prayers and more prayers. You'd look lovely in a "picture hat"--a very flattering style for most.

SHIRLEY, yikes on that vet bill. I think I'd better look into the credit card SANDI mentions.

SANDI, happy to hear you're in the pink again

JUDIE, any "do" day is a happy day, enjoy the pampering!

A City Inspector will be out today to see if the new A/C installation is up to code, etc.. Julie called earlier wanting me to "go with" as she runs errands, but I'm stuck waiting for the inspection. Boo-hiss!

Love and prayers for all !!!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Lolly said…
Good morning! Prayers for Jo! Hope all goes well as it did last time. Bet you can find some cute hats, Jo! I am not a hat person either, but I do have a friend who wears a hat everyday and everywhere. Her hair has always been thin, very thin. She started this several years back....she is so cute!

Sandi, Skippi's paw is doing well. The front paw looks normal. The back one is still pink as the infection ate away all the top layer of the pads. Poor baby! But, she is fine now and we are still treating her. She goes back to the vet in 2 weeks. She is on her way to being a golden kitty!!

Jack is at the periodontists, I think that is how it is spelled. They are cutting away at the gums. Ouch!!

Prayers for the Wright family. It is a hard day for sure!

Good morning,

Yes, Luna is a golden dog.

Kathryn got the care card just before Luna's surgery. It is already maxed out. She doesn't want a huge amount on it. The interest is huge if you don't keep up.
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
Thinking about you Mema Jo. Love you much.

Hugs to the Wright family. The "firsts" through this next year will be so hard. Love you Wanda!

HEllo on lunch

Good afternoon my eagle budlets. Tomorrow my Sis and I are going to watch a bald eagle released back in the wild at Claytor Lake. This is going to be so awesome!

Hi, Everyone,

Many thanks to Steve, and Nu, and the whole NCTC crew who keep our cam up to snuff!! The plans for next season sound good!

Thinking of Wanda & GG & family today. ((HUGS!))

Shar, so sorry about Bandit. Bet he's met up with Buddy by now!!
Really like your idea for a wooden sign. Prayers continue for Lauren. Sounds like she's really making excellent progress!
God is SO good!!!

Sandi, hope you're feeling 100%, really soon!

Jo, prayers continue for you, as always. Hope you continue to feel well during chemo.

Shirley, have been thinking of Luna. Prayers that she'll bounce back quickly.

Well, the weather here is hot again, but at least the humidity is only about 25%. It's 93 here right now, but it could be worse!

I got a boatload of medical reports to transcribe from the doctor, so may be a little scarce around here for a couple of days.
Will hopefully be able to stay caught up and maybe say a quick hello or two. Hope everyone has a wonderful evening!
Oh--hello, Margie, wherever you are! Miss you!
I ♥ us!!!

the link above is for NCTC I forgot to add that for donations silly me
JudyE said…
I wish they showed the total for the eagle cam They show 555 and the goal is 1500 but I don't know if that is the cam When you first go to the link click on the cute little eagle link and then there is the area to fill out for donation and at the bottom is the area to check for eagle cam I haven't done it I just went poking around

Good evening to all ♥

It was a very long afternoon - didn't get home until 5:00. Then my
feet went up in the recliner and I was sound asleep for about 2 hrs.
I am comfortable - I go back tomorrow
at noon for the second of three rounds. Within a week or two I will get CT and then I may be sent to Radiation treatment. We are making progress - Your prayers and good vibes are working! Thank you again and again. ♥

I was just chatting with Deb Stecyk and thanked her for getting the ball rolling with Friends of NCTC donations for the Eagle Cam System.
With our Blog Group and then all 3 or 4 FB sites aware of this - NCTC should have enough money to give us the best cam system out there!

Mema Jo said…
IF you have FB - please go to Wanda's
profile and read (With Kleenex handy) her post for today to Gene.
She is one strong Tiger!
Mema Jo said…

God bless you all
You are all in my prayers

Goodnight to my friends ♥

Evenin' all.

Jo, hope all goes easily tomorrow.

JudyE, thank you for the eaglet/sprinkler video. Cute.

Will send a message to Wanda tomorrow.

Andy, get thee to thy transcribing work and then come on back.






















Judie said…
Will be headed to the pillows soon.

Busy day tomorrow with filling gas tank, foraging, etc.

Night light is on. Restful sleep for all.

Hoda said…
Thank you for checking in JO.
God Bless you and keep you.
Prayers continue for you and MICHAEL.

We paddled hard.
So many with injuries.
We are missing 5 out of 20!
That boat is heavy!!!
We did it though and we are pleased.

Getting things finalized for the Kootenay Spurit Festival.
Did I tell you the Fire Chief approved our safety plan?
I felt so relieved.

Getting on to say good night. Jack is doing very well after his dental work today. They removed gum and bone to get his tooth ready for a crown. He took only one pain pill and ate an omelet tonight.

I did some work in the yard and ran some errands.

Everyone continues to say school is going great! Wahoo!

Jo, thanks for reporting in. Prayers for you continue! We, yes, "we " are going to beat this thing!

Night all! SED
Hoda said…
Very glad JACK is doing well.
He has been in my prayers too.

Good night
God Bless
Prayers.

Goodorming my eagle friends.

Jo, steady as she goes! Good luck today with your chemo - I'll be thinking of you.

Janet, just read an article in the online news that Nashville has been labeled the "most American" metropolitan area, meaning its demographics most closely mirror the US as a whole.

Shar, will be checking Facebook later today for photos from you and Bev from the eagle release - what lucky ladies!! Enjoy!

Judie, any word on new homes for Audrey and Grace?

Judy, has Jordyn started back to school yet? If so, does she like it?

One more day for me til my long weekend starts - another full day of meetings - UGGHH! New principal seems nice enough - young, energetic.

Have agreat day all.
Janet said…
morning all.

SANDI: we do indeed have a very diverse city. neat information to know!

another day straight ahead. last night I was trying to put together this thing for work. they want us each to make a page, like a scrap book page with pix, no people please for security, of things about us, that represent us. clients like to know a bit about the person working on them. mine turned out pretty ugly. I will continue working on it...

anyway, hope everyone has a good day!
Judie said…
Y'all come on over to the fresh new thread provided by our very own Steve.

Good morning,

Back-to-school business day today for Hunter and Kathryn. Time to meet teachers, buy gym suit, etc. I will let Kathryn take care of things today.

Just spilled a bucket of soot on my back steps. Yuck. Will have to get it all cleaned up.
Hoda said…
What time is too early to use a vacuum cleaner if you live in a flat?
I thought 4,5 are too early!
Is 6 still too early?
Garbage done. Recycling done. Kitchen cleaned and tidied. Bathroom done. Laundry done.
Wished I could vacuum.

Prayers go with you JO.
Love you.

SHAR post pictures of eagle release please.

Schools in BC are closed till further notice.
Very sad situation.
The BC Gov't just got fined AGAIN 2million dollars for violating contracts. The first time less than a year ago was 3 million dollars!!! They propose to pay each child 40$ per day for as long as school is out.
Talk is till after Thanksgiving!!! 12 October, around Colombus Day US calendar!!! What a mess!!!
Can we say dismantling public education and a students right to a free and quality education???
Shaking my head!!!
