THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD STEVE

AND THE CALL OVER SUZ

AND REMEMBER YOU DON'T NEED TO ENTER THE ROBOT CODE JUST CLICK PUBLISH

I THINK BLOGGER AND GOOGLE ARE ACTING UP

stronghunter said...

Hi, Steve,

Thanks.

Congratulations on the feather, Suzan.

JudyE said...

I also get the address on houses or mailboxs

NCSuzan said...

Glad you made it over JudyE

NCSuzan said...

Shirley, you deserve the feather today. You were a friend and supporter when someone was in need.

stronghunter said...

A question--When you try to refresh the blog, does it always tell you that you have unsaved changes even when you don't?

stronghunter said...

Got a good feeling in my heart when I sat there with Julie. That's as good as a feather any day, Suzan.

JudyE said...

I noticed the ? next to the area of the robot entering box if you click on it It tells why they do this and there is instructions or a area where Steve can click for troubleshooting not positive it will help
Odd and good that we DON'T have to keep entering the # But a pia that its is there LOL

NCSuzan said...

No, but it does ask me if I want to leave the page or stay on the page.

JudyE said...

Yep SHIRLEY that has been there all along

JudyE said...

EAGLE IN

NCSuzan said...

Shirley, you are good people.

stronghunter said...

Bought some interesting Christmas candles today at Hearth and Plow. They are battery-operated. They go off 6 hours after you turn them on and then come on again the next day at the same time and repeat the process. Julie told me about them. Just hope the batteries last for a reasonable amount of time. Need to get busy setting them up for tonight.

stronghunter said...

:) Thanks, Suzanne.

Just frustrates me to see someone being so thoughtless.

I figure if someone walks up on me during my precious opportunity to make a record-setting strike they're clueless or confused.

Just wish I had an opportunity for a record-setting strike. :)

paula eagleholic said...

2 lovely eagles in the nest!

Oh missed the HP!!

Mema Jo said...

Wow Look what happens when you get yourself busy hanging curtain rods!

Thanks for the new thread, Steve
I see the Robot sign in is still there but we do bypass it and can publish.

Congratulations Suzan on your feather! Wear it in Good Health.

paula eagleholic said...

Janet said...

good afternoon all. its been a nice day. getting ready to relax and watch the 4 p.m. news.

livvy and I got a lot done homeschooling....I baked brownies, ones with andes mints and cheesecake ones. hubby will be pleased.

house is clean. laundry done. beano, dax, and I took a walk this morning. beano wasn't thrilled. I put sweaters on them and off we went.

I have been working on a gift for a friend. a couple friends, actually.

you know I've mentioned I've been painting on rocks. round stones. my friend callie has a beautiful horse whom she adores. I have painted his likeness on a rock for her. :) and working on my secret santa gift...

oh good grief! people are protesting here in Nashville...the president is here.

I think i'll just stay home.

love the new thread. THANKS STEVE.

lets see if I can publish without stuttering......................

Mema Jo said...

I have gotten the question here on this blog asking me if I
really want to leave the page.

ON FB when it asks me if I want to leave - it is usually that I didn't save/enter my comment but at times I haven't made any comment. What's a gal to do - just way "yes"

JudyE said...

Here is the snip of the HP sure looked like it to me Wish we had the LIVE FEED to be certain

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

funny thing is you can enter the wrong ### and it will still publish I was just playing around and it did it twice now it asked for 3255 and I put in 5

Mema Jo said...

I just posted my eagle pics on FB.
Love it because you can rearrangement their order before entering them.... Wish our Momster
album were like that...... ♥

JudyE said...

ok heading to GYM

paula eagleholic said...

If it wasn't he was asking for it, JudyE

Time to head home....

Mema Jo said...

Don't forget on TV tonight

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

8:00 PM on WJZ 13, 1 hr 1 min 1964

Mema Jo said...

I'm just returning from reading the previous blog - SO PROUD to call you my friend, Shirley! ♥

Sandi said...

Hi all - posting from school. Parent teacher conferences are going on but my next one isn't until 6:00. What a looonnnng day this has been! Can't wait to get home and get into my jammies!

Suzan, I can't even remember who sent me a Christmas card last year much less what the card looked like!

Shirley, what a good friend you are! It's bowling for Pete's sake, not negotiating world peace!!

My mom was an excellent bridge player but, toward the end of her life, when she was on heavy duty meds, she became more forgetful. She stopped going to the senior center and I suspected it was because someone said something to her about forgetting a bid or doing something "wrong." Mom never said why she stopped going, maybe nobody said anything but she just knew her mind wasn't as sharp and didn't want to embarrass herself. But it made me sad that she gave up something that had always brought her such joy.

Will check in early tomorrow morning. TTFN!

stronghunter said...

Yes, it is just a game, Sandi. And, if it did involve world peace, yelling isn't the best way to handle things.

It seems the lady who did the yelling actually knew about Julie's problem. I do not know what possessed her to yell. I heard her yell, "Don't bowl!" I would have been mortified if someone yelled at me like that.

stronghunter said...

So sorry that happened to your mother. Sometimes people just do not think.

Mema Jo said...

Off to some news

Sandi hope you get home soon and that
all is dry!

grannyblt said...

Good evening eagle buds.

Will have to go back to read earlier messages. I am addicted to this iPad and lately it takes forever to download mail, so I miss some posts. That won't make any sense to you all but I know what I am talking about. LOL

I have spent far too much time this week trying to decide if I was going to buy new cards or just send leftovers. Some of those leftovers are the freebies different groups send to you . I mostly just send to relatives I barely keep in touch with. Now to find the address list I so carefully made a few years ago.

I spent the afternoon at the car dealership having an oil change, etc. On Star said I needed a cabin filter replaced. I didn't even know my car had a cabin, much less a cabin filter. Add another $40.

JudyE said...

back from gym 55° and chilly out I dare not say cold LOL I am a big wussy

Mema Jo said...

Berry College Eagle Cam makes me
droll. I wanted to see about their
night infra red lighting of the nest-
They even light up the entire tree.

Whoo Hoo ♥

stronghunter said...

Hi,

Testing, testing . . .

stronghunter said...

Had trouble getting on the blog via laptop.

JudyE said...

I love both Fl cam the best especially since there is always a eagle in it now Berry college nest is MT right now Looks so windy there the top view make you seasick LOL

JudyE said...

Mema Jo said...

Berry college has 3 views, Judy. I'm not sure what you mean about 2 Links.
Tell me tomorrow - Thx

Lynne - I also get so many pretty cards from different organizations
and I am proud to send them out. I mainly do family! It's a shame that
those cards may be the only time we
communicate unless they get to the family reunions.

Mema Jo said...

Morning 6 month check up with primary
doctor. But headed in to sleep as it
is a morning appointment.

Afterwards I may have hubby run us up
to Daughter's as my 5 greats would be
there.

Goodnight to all and God Bless you through the night. SED & AOYP

Judie said...

My goodness. It took me about 15 attempts to get the blog. Was beginning to suspect the robot had blocked me out for bypassing the "prove you're not a robot" step.

Congratulations Shirley. You really are a very special friend and I have no doubt Julie is deeply touched by your support. Hugs!

Yes, the Berry College camera is absolutely amazing. Just wishing...maybe Santa will bring us a new camera this year.

So nice that Belle and Shep are nestorating and doing HP.

Will need to catch up. Heading to the pillows. We are headed to Occoquan tomorrow for a visit.

Sandperson departed long ago. Restful sleep for all.

Sandi said...

Goodorming my eagle friends - very tired this morning - faculty meeting after school today. Kids are getting crazy.

Jo, prayers for positive news from your primary care doc.

Judie, enjoy your visit with your soon to be new neighbors.

Have agreat day all.

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds

44° out now brrr


JO below are the two different links to view Berry College where I mentioned two links two different websites I didn't blue link them so you can see the two different

Janet said...

good morning to all.

hope everyone stays safe today...weather is wild on the east coast.

cloudy again here. 39 at the moment. going to walk the dogs again after coffee. beano is less than thrilled but suspect he will be okay.

work today from 11 to 2.

thinking about the bowling incident. good for Shirley. that poor woman.

I suspect she who is acting like a jerk I is likely much like parents at kids' games who over react when kids don't do well. it is indeed just a game.

people like that make me both angry and sad.

we had one team like that when I was bowling...one member of that team when he would bowl ,would pop his fingers in his ball, then after he released, he would slide over into your lane. :( so I would purposely wait til he was done before I would even consider walking up there to bowl.

eventually they were banned from the league for literally starting a fist fight. ridiculous.

everyone was glad they were gone.

imho: we should all practice such kindness as our STRONGHUNTER did. blessed be.

light and love, hugs to all.

NatureNut said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds.
Got a copy of a pretty good picture one of our naturalists shot at the Park on Monday! It's in the Nook!

Gotta get ready to hit the trail. Everyone have a wonderful day! ☺
BOOO on robot. Discovered you can bypass it the other day.

Judie said...

Good morning to everyone.

Guess what? SUNSHINE! Chilly and windy but SUNSHINE!

Going early to do a little sight-seeing in the village so Darth can see the river and the boat area. Occoquan itself is a village with craft/specialty shops that I enjoy. Then to the meet & greet.

Positive thoughts for Jo's blood work results.

Eagle in Berry nest looking beauteous in the sunshine. Pete's Pond is busy. Our nest MT.

Need to check out Loretta's nook.

Hope Shirley's knee is okay after bowling.

Wishing everyone a lovely morning.

Kay said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!

LORETTA, awesome is perhaps an overused word, but that eagle pic is Awesome!

JO, thinking of you and hoping the Primary Physician has good news only.

SHAR, so glad you're headed for BEV's--Tom and she will administer the TLC you need and deserve!

SHIRLEY, you are a friend indeed! Julie must love you to pieces, as do we all!

SANDI, those kids are ready for a Christmas break, but not nearly as ready as you are!!! I hope the break will give you a chance to refuel and restore your energy!

JANET, looked for word on Tom's cold--hope he's better and that you and Olivia do not come down with it. No one wants to be sick during the holidays!

JUDY, I love it when it hits 40°, but I know how chilling that temp is in Pinellas County! Bundle up!

LYNNE1, I use those freebie cards, too. They send pretty cards unsolicited, no need to let them go to waste. I have a very short list for cards now, sending only to folks who have no e-addy or who's e-addy I do not have. I'm amazed that there are still computer holdouts amongst my friends and relatives---but then many of you are amazed at the number of FB deniers we have right here on the blog, I know.☺

Today's errand is, what else, Kroger? Some Rx's are in. I can't go in that store without buying umpteen other things, however!

Love and prayers for all in need!!!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Kay said...

Hey, JUDIE, missed you in my morning novelette! So glad you're feeling up to a little trip today! Hope Garth is favorably impressed with the river and boat area. Enjoy the shops--I picture a festive little town all decked out for the holidays!

Mema Jo said...

Good morning to all ♥
They say it is 40° but the winds are up to 12mph so it feels like it is
freezing out there. Everyone bundle up today.
Judie I would not be wanting to go near the water today - Brrrrrr Hope you and Frank have a delightful time with the Meet & Greet....

Loretta the pic of your eagle in your Nook is fantastic.

I'll be back later - I am gong up to daughter's after doctor's.

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Slept for awhile after taking Hunter to school this morning. Did not sleep much last night.

My bridge club has its Christmas dinner tonight, and I am supposed to provide a dessert. I think I will resort to getting something at Wegmans.

I was supposed to have physical therapy today as well as a doctor's appointment and figured that I didn't have time to do the cooking. The PT appointment has been postponed until Friday because it turns out I can't have doctor and PT appointments on the same day. They are with the same company and insurance won't pay for two appointments at the same company on the same day. So, I just slept late. Being lazy.

stronghunter said...

Read back a little. Didn't bring my glasses downstairs, so I need to go back and read more carefully. (Increased the font size for now. :) )

I think my knee survived the bowling. I am happy.

Thanks for all of the kind words. I hope Julie will be okay. I know she misses having Val along. They are good friends and Val looks out for Julie as much as possible.

Windy here, too, Jo.

stronghunter said...

Susan and I once stopped at a restaurant a bit off I-95, Judie. I think it was at Occoquan. It was in a group of interesting little shops and such. A very nice place with white tablecloths. I think it was right after Susan had her appendectomy and I was bringing her home with me for a few days.

stronghunter said...

BBL. Have a good day, everybody. People on the East Coast, hang on to something so you don't blow away!

Hoda said...

Good morning.
JO hope appointment went well.

SHAR went to Bev's today.

Enjoy the day

Judie said...

Good afternoon.

How strange Shirley that two appointments on the same day are prohibited - especially if the appointments are for authorized medical care. Okay, good part was some extra sleep.

Thought Jo might have checked in by now. Maybe she's still visiting with gks.

Meet and greet was very nice. Excellent buffet. The residents are so friendly and very helpful with suggestions for downsizing and preparing to think smaller. Also nice that now we're on the wait list we can attend some activities as a way to make friends and transition. Nice place.

Okay, headed to put my feet up and peruse the newspaper.

BBL

Mema Jo said...

Good afternoon to all ♥
Juxt arrived home - daughter's is about an hour's drive. We did eat lunch and visited with daughter and hubby and the 5 greats! Very fun time.

Doctor's appointment (6 mo check up) went very well. No change in any of my meds but do need that iron tab once a day. Did drop a few pounds but it doesn't really show. :(

Now my feet are going up for a few.
Have a fun evening, Shirley!

stronghunter said...

Good to know that your appointment went well, Jo.

My doctor has decided an MRI is in order. Scheduled it for Friday, and then realized that Hunter's math tutor comes at that time. Maybe we can cancel one math lesson. My schedule is really packed.

Doctor says he wants the MRI because I am still young and active, and if it is something simple to fix, it would be silly not to do it. Okay. I will buy into that. He did not seem to mind that I bowled yesterday.

stronghunter said...

Bought a lovely looking dessert from Wegmans. Lots of fruit on it. Been wanting to try it anyway.

stronghunter said...

Good to know that your meet and greet went so well, Judie. Can't wait for you to move further south.

stronghunter said...

Okay, I am wondering what the going rate is for traveling around taking pictures of house numbers, etc. All of those "prove you're not a robot" pictures have me noticing things I could photograph.

stronghunter said...

At least those numbers are easier to read than some of the stuff they give you to figure out.

Janet said...

hey all . good afternoon.

KAY: t hanks for asking. Tom is improving. I hope not to catch it as well. I made the master tonic up and have been taking that faithfully. Hopefully it does the trick! Noone else in the house wants any of it. Its pretty potent, but doesn't taste badly.

Yanno something aobut the prove you're not a robot house #'s bothers me somehow..... not sure why, but it does.

Good day at work. getting ready to start some school work.

New oven is here and in a large box in the kitchen. Soon I shall have a shiny new oven.

hugs to all!

JudyE said...

HELLO home from work

JudyE said...

paula eagleholic said...

hA hA, Janet...google probably probably took all those house number pics when it was updating google maps!!

I really want some Christmas cookies! No one at work has brought any in...might just have to make some!

JudyE said...

Yeah today is the first day to where we will be gaining daylight today was 6 min just on the news

Hoda said...

JUDYE I do not know where your news was getting their information. They are wrong. December 21 is when we start gaining day light. Certainly NOT 6 minutes a day.

JO glad of your report.

JUDIE good way to connect with your new community. Makes the transition easier.

Gray wet day here.

Many people are sick.
I am staying away from it all.

Mema Jo said...

I just ate a Christmas peppermint-sugar cookie from my daughters. Delicious!

Finished dinner - one or maybe even two TV shows on tonight that interest
me.

The wind is really forceful tonight.
Temp at 34.9° but feels like 22°. I
believe it!

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for the evening visit Judy.

JudyE said...

time for TVland

Lynne2 said...

evening all...

Shirley, glad all went well with you bowling today. Hope YOUR MRI isn't as bad as mine is!
But that business with Julie is just so heartbreaking! Thank God she has you as a blessing in her life!

Lynne2 said...

Well, my sister in law resurfaced yesterday morning. All apologetic. Whatever. She had an anxiety attack. However, somewhere along the way in the missing time, she and her friend Marie who rode up with her managed to go cruising in a bar and Marie met a guy that she is now out on a date with.

And in other "sister" news....Shari, the one with the bad man (who has been caught by police, thank God) has called here twice and left messages for Steve to call her. And yet she has NOT called her mother!

I fail to understand what is so wrong with these girls.....they cause my MIL nothing but worry and heartache. GGRRRRRR!!!!!

Lynne2 said...

Meanwhile, my FIL of the shortness of breath has his Echo and bloodtests and stress test tomorrow. OMG. He is in TERRIBLE shape anyway, and I am terrified for him. I will not be at all surprised if they slap his ass right into the hospital tomorrow. UGH! I am beginning to fear that it will be after New Year's before I ever see my husband again.

Lynne2 said...

Think I'll finish the dishes, take a shower, watch one of my recorded Christmas movies and have some hot chocolate!

Lolly said...

Oh, hot chocolate! Going to go shower, get in my sleepy head pj's (moose and bear sleepy heads) and I will be all clean and cozy and ready for hot chocolate!

Stayed home today and worked in the yard with Jubby! We raked, we hauled and we burned leaves. And, we just made a dent in the leaves that are waiting to be raked. That's the problem when you have many, many trees! Think I will stop gardening, stop keeping a lawn and just make it woods! NOT

Shirley, so glad Julie has you! Some people can be such idiots! What are people thinking when they are so cruel?

Tomorrow I get the do done, do some cooking, and then have a party to go to tomorrow night! Yea! Ready for some laughter!

Discovered something today. I meowed like a kitty and Miss Skippita went crazy!! She was searching for "the kitty". I felt so sorry for her, will not do that again!

Really need to go shower. Raking is not a clean job!

Love the discussion of Christmas cards. Just can not imagine anyone ever possibly knowing what card someone sent the previous year, and if so, who cares! I may get to Christmas greetings next week but so much to do!

Lynne, hang in there! I keep telling you how great it will be when you see your hubby! And, the longer he is gone the better the reunion!! Hang on to that thought as you walk the dogs alone! 😪

Night all! SED!

Judie said...

Evenin' all.

Sandperson just side-swiped me with a fist full of sleepy dust. I will read back tomorrow but did check to make sure Jo is okay.

Night light is on. Sandperson is departing momentarily. Wonder if staying on course will be iffy with all the wind.

Restful sleep for all.

Mema Jo said...

I watched 3 very entertaining TV shows.
Lolly - no more kitten talk! Skiippta
may like a play date. ♥
Lynne - f-i-l could have a chemical
stress test if his health is too bad to go on that Treadmill.
Hoping Sharon is comfy at Bev's.
Shirley - hope your fruity dessert was enjoyed by the bridge club gals.
Judie - sleepy dust could just be tossed up into the wind and would hit us all at the same time. lol

Mema Jo said...

Time to close!

Goodnight to all and God bless
you all with a restful night's sleep with SED.......♥

Hoda said...

Good night all.

SHAR looked terrific in BEV'S home.

The mother of my Dragon Boat Coach died yesterday. It was very sad to hear about it and yet her suffering has ended and so we support the coach and stay together as a team.
Still healing from the rifts and the disagreements from before the Christmas gathering yet we are all headed in the right direction. The woman who was feeling shut out and attacked I am sure is suffering from some medical reactions with the pressure on her brain. I am so glad you are there to support your friend SHIRLEY...JULIA is lucky to have you. When I helped to organise the Christmas gathering it was simply to help Linda. With two bouts with cancer and a stroke and a fall off the mountain due to a brain bleed I would say she has a lot to deal with. She has to go to the city every six months because the hospitals in the city have better equipment than we do here. Any way the club is healing and we are sharing laughter.
Coach will come with us to the Choral Society concert and brunch on Sunday...I feel this will help her cope with the grief of her Mother's loss.

Wet day here, warm, no snow in town anymore. Not even Uphill. The ski hill is open but the Nordic Ski Club has shut down the trails again.

Goodnight and God Bless.
Sleep well all.

Hoda said...

Well good morning!
Where is everyone?
SANDI ? JUDYE?

Hoda said...

Up I go!
Wet morning here!

I will do yoga, volunteer, and working towards psyching up for some house work too!

Enjoy the day.
Hope all are well.
Strange no one signed in yet thisorni g!!??
Maybe power is out?
It was windy JO said last night.
Praying all are well and no ice to contend with!!!

Hoda said...

Eagles in!

Lighting a candle that you all would check in soon.

Hoda said...

Well the Eastern part of Canada is blanketed with snow and storms. Is this why I am worried you might be having the same? I will go check on your weather. Oh my!

Hoda said...

Oh my!
Texted SHAR NO ANSWER!!!

Hoda said...

OK you all have snow! Maryland is severe and Birginia not so severe but snow all the same.

STAY SAFE EVERYONE.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good morning my eagle budlets. Just checking in to let everyone know I am still amongst the living. I am at Sissy's for now but will be going home in the next day or so. Physical therapy is coming to evaluate me for home PT and also a nurse will be coming to evaluate. So grateful to be on this side of the surgery and in the solution.

I LOVE US!

Hoda said...

OK SHAR TEXTED BACK!

Thank you SHAR

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Hoda, it is cold here but very little snow on the ground.

Hoda said...

Hurrah !
SHAR thank you for posting.

Hoda said...

Oh msp showed snow!
Hope the others are safe.

Hoda said...

Yay! I spoke to JO.
She sounded very well.
So happy to hear her.
She will have her coffee and then check on the blog.
My world is well!
YAY SHAR and JO... Thank you ladies.aybe MISS LOLLY is playing with Skippita?

Mema Jo said...

Good cold morning to all ♥
No snow, Hoda 33° but no wind today.

Thank you Hoda for the Wake Up call. I can't imagine how Judy and Sandi, our early birds, both missed the blog this morning. I also am concerned and will wait for their explanation. Hope all is well.

Morning Sharon - great to see your photo on FB. Looking good but don't overdo! Stay well and keep healing.

Judie said...

Good morning.

Good to see Shar is at Bev's and will be headed toward the recovery finish line.

Hoda, very sorry about the coach's mom. Hopefully, all will be healed with the blessings of the holiday season.

Jo, so glad the doctor's report was good and that you had a fun visit with gks.

Hoping that Andy and Jim and Hoda will all be safe from the west coast storms. Hoping also that the northeast coasters will recover quickly from the snow and ice.

Headed to the scullery to make Cole slaw, prepare ribs for grilling.

Good Afternoon Eagle Buds!!!

Oh, JUDY, you poor baby, my cold Ohio heart bleeds for you! It's 33° here at the moment, but with wind chill it feels like 20--the sun is shining tho' and that brightens the spirit.

Congratulations to Iris and her Dubby! Quite an accomplishment!!

SHIRLEY, yeah! Don't spend all your winnings in one place!

HODA, thanks for providing wake up service for JO and for keeping us up to the moment on SHAR's progress and I loved your Eagle report!!!

Oh, and I see SHAR came by, too! Don't overdo and try to move home too soon. Don't want you tripping over any furbabies!

Hmmmm, JUDIE, cole slaw n' ribs! You do put a lot of thought and work into keeping yummies in the tummies at your house.

Prayers for HODA's Coach and all in need!!!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Alert! It's 13 days, 16 hours and about 25 minutes til' Christmas, according to Yahoo.

JudyE said...

Hey non facebookers check out this map that was posted on one of the pages for eagles

Eagle Cam Map

YEP KKAY I use to live in Ohio Akron area and I do remember the cold and that is why we moved

JudyE said...

KAY I don't have your correct email address I just sent the picture of the eagle map to everyone on my mail list but yours bounced back as no longer a good addy the one I have is with your full name and yahoo

JudyE said...

KAY I re tried you addy without the Kay in front that I noticed was on the mail addy I had. I went to the beautiful ecard you sent me for Thanksgiving and got that address that was on it. That is when I noticed that my email had added your name in front of your email address

Sandi said...

Hi all - checking in from school. My apologies for being MIA this morning and causing friends to worry. I didn't sleep well last night - long story, "school stuff" - and I was pretty much sleepwalking through my morning this morning. I completely forgot to say goodorming to everyone!

Thanks for missing me. No resolution to the problem until tomorrow afternoon, but I will survive.

Later!

Kay said...

JUDY, great map! It came through to my yahoo mail 3 times, so I don't know why it showed a kick back to you. You have the right address. Thanks!

SANDI, we're just glad you're okay and that the problem wasn't weather related or worse! Hope you get some good sound sleep tonight. I'm guessing JUDIE will give the Sandperson special instructions on your behalf tonight.

Kay said...

JUDY, yep using the full name would be wrong, but still don't know why I received it 3 times! No problem--I don't mind and I'm glad to have the map. Wonder who went to all that work?

JudyE said...

Trudi Kron is the person on FB that did the map she posted on one of the eagle pages

I am waiting for the mail or UPS man today The last book I ordered should be here today it arrived in Tampa yesterday afternoon via UPS but when I went on the tracking site it said In transit by Post Office for delivery so I am confused (UPS and or the PO) and waiting to see There has been a rash of package lifting from peoples front doors or mail boxes so I wait
I saw the mail man on the other side of the road a bit ago

Hoda said...

Thank you SANDI!
Now I have a very good day.
Yes you were greatly missed.
Yes I so worried that something was the matter.
Blessed Be.
I relate to school stresses and overnight worrying.

POOF

Mema Jo said...

UPS or USPS ????
Hope your photo book arrives soon

Sitting down to a spaghetti dinner.
We always make lots of sauce and keep
some frozen and ready to thaw!

I missed our eagles this evening. I was watching the news. Thanks Judy for the many many many many photos!
I'll be thankful when live feed starts so we can make videos!

Judie said...

Good evening.

JudyE, hope your book arrives very soon. Thefts are so sad. Did you see the package that was left by a couple who had packages stolen? The thief grabbed a box of dog poop. Really great pay back and got his face on video.

Scullery is in order. Headed across the hall to the tv and to put my feet up.

Jo, good night for spaghetti. Ribs were just okay. Too fatty and tough. Cole slaw was tasty.

Do wish the West Coasters would check in. Damage looks dreadful.

Good evening,

Watching the dinosaur program on CNN.

Fascinating.

Judie said...

My goodness. Early but the pillows are calling my name and Sandperson is fussing about needing winter long johns and double-strength mittens along with some of Hoda's special Nelson socks.

Hope Sandi gets some sleep tonight.

Shirley, have you squandered your winnings?

Tomorrow morning is "do" day followed by a couple of errands. Then will attend an official holiday gathering with Darth.

So, early to sleep. Night light is on. Sandperson will depart soon. Restful sleep for all.

stronghunter said...

Well, I did spend some money today, Judie. I went to Plow and Hearth and picked up a few things. Spent a bit more than $3.00, on Christmas stuff. I like to think the money wasn't squandered.

Mema Jo said...

I am ready to call it a day and can't believe that tomorrow is FRIDAY
I thought we just had one a short time ago.

Goodnight and God Bless all of you through the night.

I ♥ us

Ms Bookworm said...

Good Evening!

Thought I'd better check in so no one worries. It hasn't started raining where Ken and I are yet, but it's expected to start sometime after midnight Pacific time. Pacific Storm Derek has been upgraded to a Category Six, so it should be a real gully washer. We're under a severe thunderstorm watch through Friday morning. We've battened down the hatches, so to speak, and are hoping it won't be too bad. We have high surf and wind advisories, so I guess it really is an El Nino year.

Hoda, so very sorry to hear about your coach's mom. Prayers & (hugs)!

Iris and Dean, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Shirley, don't know how I managed to miss your Birthday, but Happy Belated Birthday! Congrats on your big winnings, too!

Shar, you are sounding wonderful!
Healing prayers continue!

Jo, so happy that you are feeling well, too! Prayers continue for you, too, of course!

Think I'm going to try to get some sleep. Didn't get as much sleep as usual last night, and need to catch up. Wishing SED to everyone. Good night, and God bless! I ♥ us!!!

JudyE said...

Hoda said...

Thank you JUDYE. This morning I thought maybe day off and then said no it is Friday. So maybe your days off are Thursday and Friday and I just got disoriented!!! What with SANDI being MIA too!

Glad you are all well and I got to hear JO'S beautiful voice.

Good night
God Nless.
Stay out of the weather everyone.

stronghunter said...

Wow, a Category 6 storm, Andy. .That is impressive. I am going to try to check that one out.

Good night, everyone.

Hi all! It has been a busy day! Got my do done! Cleaned a little around the house, went with Jack to get a new garage door, did some cooking, and I had a party to go to tonight!

Our garage door bit the dust this week. Lovely just lovely! So today we went to the place in town, they sent a rep out, and now we will be waiting for new door and door opener, he did help Jack to get the door closed and now my car is in the driveway. Do not like this!

Sorry about our garage door. About 30 years ago, Jack was at work, I was at school, and Laurel rode the bus home. She called her dad. "What's up with the garage door." She could not explain enough for Jack to understand. Then Michael got home. He, too, called his dad. So, Jack decided to come on home. Well.....we had a new, unpainted garage door. It had been installed in the WRONG house, ours! Our garage door was locked, so basically they broke into our garage, tore out the old door and installed a new one and reconnecting the opener. They cleaned up the mess neatly! On the door lock we found the company name and called them! Are you missing a door? Lol. The couple from further down the street came to visit their door. Lol. The company offered to return our door.....uh, no! Then they offered a discount.....uh no! We never called them back and they never called us! Let me see.....they broke and entered our garage and stole our door!!

Anyway, after approximately 30 years the spring decided to break, then the cable càme off the spool. So, this time we will pay for a new door! Merry Christmas to us!

Probably goin to rake leaves again tomorrow. Ugh!

60 right now. Wish it was just a little cooler. My Christmas sweatshirts are too hot!

Heading to bed soon! Night all! SED!

That was supposed to be "Story about our door"

Sandi said...

Goodorming my eagle friends - TGIF!!! That bears repeating - TGIF!! Got a better night's sleep last night but I'm still exhausted.

Jo, I love how the weeks fly by for you so it feels like we just had a Friday. Last Friday feels like a month ago to me! Must be a retirement thing. can't wait!!

Lolly, sounds like you have absolutely no reason to complain about having to replace your garage door - very funny story about your current one.

Gotta run - have agreat day all.

Hoda said...

Eagles in !

Hoda said...

Poof both

Hoda said...

Got pictures.
Camera went black twice.
Restored itself.
JUDYE pictures on FB page.
Please take to album when you have a chance.
Thank you

Hoda said...

I think we have a mighty fine view this year.
Bit frustrating last season I must admit.
Much better now.
THANK YOU NCTC.
MIGHTY FINE VIEW

Hoda said...

LOLLY hilarious garage door story and the children's response phone Dad!
Adult response made me laugh out loud.

SANDI hoping whatever it is at school gets resolved to your satisfaction today.
Keeping you in the Light

Hoda said...

For the record Eagles were ready in when I went to the still cam...I did not see them come in.

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Funny story about the door, Lolly.

Much to do today. Will return at some point. Have a good day, everyone.

Judie said...

Good morning.

Good grief! Lolly, the free garage door only lasted 30 years? Huummmph! Don't make garage doors like they used too. lol Enjoy the new one.

Sandi, hope this will be a fast-Friday so the weekend arrives before you know it. Has anything been mentioned about your plan for the final year? Is the plan approved? Sure hope so.

Shirley, I know you would not really squander your winnings. Just like the word squander. Sounds so decadent.

So glad Andy checked in. Sure hope her area was not badly affected.

Off to get my "do" did. Will return.

Wishing everyone a good morning.

NEW THREAD FOR THIS

RED FRIDAY MORNING.

COME ON OVER

Ms Bookworm said...

Good Morning/Afternoon, Everyone!

Well, we still have our heads above water out here! It has been quite a night and morning.
Our local doves here for breakfast found themselves wading up to their tummies in puddles, in some heavy rain! Had heavy winds and rain starting at about 1 a.m. our time.

Emma and I got soaked when I took her outside after breakfast--it was raining pretty hard. Put her heavy coat on her, and I wore a fleece-lined hoodie and a hoodie of Ken's that's somewhat waterproof. Had to put them in the clothes dryer after I took them off. Emma got towel dried after coming back in. Well, I'm sure we won't be turning on the sprinklers for at least a week!

There has been a lot of rain damage in the L.A. area--downed trees, and one balcony in Long Beach collapsed from the weight of the rain on it, crushing part of a parked car. There have been some evacuations in areas that had fires a couple of months ago. Mudslides are a big concern there.
Amtrak had to suspend service between San Luis Obispo and L.A. because of the storm. One man was rescued from the L.A. River, and a woman is still missing. They were clinging to trees in the river earlier this morning. There is a flash flood advisory in parts of Orange County until this afternoon--mostly in areas where there had been fires. Also, there is a high surf warning--12 to 14-foot waves! Cowabunga, dude!

Ken and Emma and I are fine, and in no danger here. Everything is really wet, but our lawn is SO happy! There has been a lot of snow in the Sierras, so I hope it will help the drought situation enough to make a difference.

Lolly and Jack, maybe you will get some of this wetness in a couple of days! It seems to be headed east.

Hope all is well with everyone back east. Have a good Red Friday! Prayers for all. I ♥ us!!
