New week thread.


Janet said...

claiming the feather THANKS STEVE

Janet said...

WEll now handing said feather off to JUDIE> Congrats!

Judie said...

Good afternoon.

Thank you Steve for the fresh Monday thread. Hope you had a nice weekend.

Eaglets are looking bigger by the minute.

NCSuzan, I miss the Cheetah babies. Wish they had been able to put a camera in their "growing up" enclosure.

Sunshine finally arrived along with humidity.

Yard work injured my right wrist. Right-handed. Right difficult to type.


Judie said...

Feather is yours Janet. Enjoy, please.

Janet said...

HI JUDIE! (waving)
Hi everyone. Its Monday again.

Rain has finally let up. Supposed to be sunny and 70 tomorrow....we shall see. It has precipitated for a week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If April showers bring Mayflowers, we'll soon be overrun by Pilgrims...

(bad corny joke)

Been a busy morning. Livvy's allergy shots done....package mailed and now heading off for my massage. Looking forward to it!

Not a lot going on. Tom has a cold....i'm trying NOT to catch it.

Two years ago today was the sale of mom and dad's house. the only regrets I have: 1. I didn't push the issue sooner. I do regret that the whole thing caused a huge rift.....but it is what it is.

Made an apt to have Dax neutered on Friday.

Another rockin' busy week ahead.

Light love and healing for all in need. Have a super day!

Janet said...

JUDIE: Let's SHARE! <3

Mema Jo said...

Thank you Steve for the fresh new thread on this Monday. Judie thanks for the Shout Out. Janet I did enjoy your Folger's alert over on FB.

Looks as though the gray skies are gone.


Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good afternoon my eagle budlets.

Watching our babes plotzed at the 9 o'clock position. They are getting quite lanky!

I just had my first rose-breasted grosbeak of the season. I love all my birds coming back. The neighbor's cat, however, is lurking in the woods. Hopefully it will stay in the woods and not use my bird feeders as a bait box. That is why Lilyun gets to hunt from behind the window glass, kind of window-shopping, if you will.

Sandi said...


Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

And Sandi's box is checked. :)

Judie said...

I like sharing, Janet. Hope you remain cold-free.

Back to resting my wrist.

stronghunter said...


Tornado watch here.

Hunter and I stopped by the library after I picked him up at school--just long enough for me to drop a couple of books in the return box.

That was long enough for rain clouds to gather and we passed through a couple of showers on the short trip back to the house. When we got here, the weather alarm was screaming.

Baseball practice tonight. Hoping weather will settle down.

Judie said...

Big storm predicted.

Shirley and I are in a tornado watch. Quick look at the nest then going to turn the computer off. Sky has become quite dark. Not sure but Loretta's area might also be stormy.

stronghunter said...

Did a quick check of the nest. Looks like all is well there.

stronghunter said...

Hi Judie. Take care.

Same to anyone else in the storm zone.

stronghunter said...

Our weather queen, Lynne2, is also in a tornado watch area.

glo said...

Well isn't there something about "splitting hairs" I think splitting feathers would be easier. It is cloudy windy and cold here today. Ran a few errands and just loving on Patches whose eyes even seem a little perkier today.

paula eagleholic said...

Kids are all stretched out. Parent still in the nest.

Sandi said...

Hi again from home where I have more time to chat.

Got an email from the director of personnel this afternoon that said, "I have talked with Jason Macrides, and I think that we will be able to accommodate you as a para for the 15-16 school year. I will have a more definite answer by the beginning of May." Jason is my principal. I am sooooo excited about this news, even though it's not 100% definite yet!

The next 4 weeks will be super busy for me - 4 IEPs to write by 5/18, state testing to administer for the entire month of May, transition to high school meetings to schedule for each student on my caseload, files to get in order to be sent on to the high school, and planning the 8th grade recognition and a field trip to Wallops Island and Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge.

In addition, I am the treasurer for the property owners association and it's membership time, so I will be processing about 700 applications and checks for that. And I am the membership chair for the tennis club I belong to and it's membership time there as well, so I will be processing another 85 applications and checks.

Shar, good to hear that you are feeling great - I guess you mean the hip and your iron levels?

Glo, good news on Patches - if love could heal, that pup would be at 110% already!

Judy, did the roof get finished?

Need to feed pets and then people. Stay safe if you're in the path of the storms.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Sandi, yes indeedy - the hip and the iron levels!! So grateful!

grannyblt said...

Evening all. Our babes are at the 11 o'clock position, snoozing away. They sure seem to like that part of the nest.

On an off rain here today. I did manage to avoid the raindrops when I returned part of my Bose CD player. I had had less than a year and it malfunctioned. They took it back and gave me a new one without question. There is a Bose store in the outlet mall that is 5 miles away. I would have hated to have had to mail it back. The new component plays beautifully. Getting things done before my trip to see grands next month. The "T" in grannyblt is graduating May 13 and I want to be there. She hasn't committed to a college for next year yet. Probably somewhere in the NW or Hawaii due to parents pending move. Some colleges have an agreement that Alaskan students don't have to pay full out of state rates, so they may take advantage of that option for next year.

Love red breasted grosbeaks, but haven't seen any yet this year. On Saturday I was birding at Presque Isle on Lake Erie and saw some migrants, the highlight was a large group (about 200) ruddy ducks. The male of that species has a bright blue bill during the breeding season. We only saw a few blue bills, but they were pretty far away.

Hope everyone had SED.

JudyE said...

Hello eagle buds just got home When I was leaving work my turck refused to start Called Angie
now mind you we were right in the middle of storms tornado warning till 6 Odd my Track phone did go off with a warning that is the first time that has ever happened being it was a track phone I was suprised

long story short Pepsi vendor my sweet Abby helped us by using his truck to jump me since Angie vehicle the battery is odd not exposed only the positive is so he jumped me I had gotten the battery at work so drove around and YEAH it is under warranty a 5yr battery got in 2012 so now I am home rain has stopped I was soaked when I walked in now need to go get a much needed hot shower long day

Roof is almost done with the severe weather they stopped earlier today

JudyE said...

I aee the nest is under tornado warning the wind is horrfic had to turn it down

JudyE said...

I posted two pic on my mis blog of my roof not done yet

My new roof and some video of eagle towers

it is the Misc blog that I posted the cell tower videos on so while you are looking at my pic of my new Terra Cotta roof not done yet you can check out the video I noticed no one has view them since I posted them

Been on phone with Angie and still haven't gotten that much needed shower
She needed info on creditcard she can't find the # to pay so I got it for her that is the card that I cancelled on her remember and the due date is today Why do they wait till deadline to pay sitting here scratching head LOL

JudyE said...

lots of flugg brong it

JudyE said...

Kids are picking up the flugg that was brought in got a cool snip of landing on the still cam

NatureNut said...

Good Evening Eagle Buds. Just checking the nest and the one chick in the well was nestorating, then turned and tried to pull on adult's tail that was just above it (almost out of sight). Then it turned around and looked as if grabbing some of dinner adult was working with!

My buddy, Doris, at the Park said she's pretty sure she saw TWO eaglets jumping around in nest!
Hope I will be able to view something tomorrow.

The one kitten that has the itchy neck rash has not been caught yet for meds! Supposed to get Amox and Neosporin 2 times a day. Vet said they had no trouble handling her. Well, she was in a cage! Duh
It's very depressing. I've devised a scheme of throwing a towel over her, stuffing her in carrier, take that in shower stall, unzip case just a little and do meds! Haven't been able to try it yet, as she was in neighbor's grass. Maybe if there's rain, they'll go in garage!
Have a good, safe evening ☺

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

moving flugg around both kids are out and Belle is digging in cup seems to be waking them up LOL

Judie said...

Just a quick visit between storms and lightening.

Will read back tomorrow.

Sandperson has donned a heavy duty rain coat and packed a water-proof satchel with non-clumping sleepy dust.

Be back tomorrow. Restful sleep for all.

JudyE said...

I just saw lightening flash across the nest Have the sound down

JudyE said...

Janet said...

hey all. evening again. back to work tomorrow.

JUDYE: love the roof!
For all those in tornado watches, stay alert and stay safe. We were alerted to a severe tstorm just past midnight last night, but I don't even remember any thunder! that's my kind of storm. it can get pretty nasty in this region sometimes.

SANDI: things sound promising!

It seems that the rain may have moved out. Sun and 70 tomorrow, supposedly.

Its been a busy day. Glad its almost time to dent the pillows!

Sweet Big Eagle feet dreams to all!

Sandi said...

Goodorming my eagle friends.

No severe weather here last night - supposedly clearing up and drying up today.

Jo, prayers continue for you - tomorrow is your PET scan, correct? Will you talk to the doctor for results the same day?

Hoping to get a few minutes to watch our eaglets today - haven't seen much of them lately.

Have agreat day all.

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle buds

Babes are sleeping in the middle of the nest would say cup but I don't think they fit there anylonger

Judie said...

Good morning.

Seriously fierce weather here last night. Someone threw a whole lot of ice cubes at our house. lol We were lucky not to lose power. Hope all others in the storm path are doing fine.

Eaglets are sunning this morning. Loch of the Lowes has a third egg. Berry Babes are branching. Ah Springtime.

Sandi, seems as if your plan is going to work out for you. Very happy.

JudyE, glad you like the new roof.

Glo, hope Patches continues to recover.

Janet, hope you got some sleep and Tom feels better.

Wrist is not improving. May call orthopedic doc to see if he has a few minutes.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

Kay said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!

JUDIE, good plan, call that doc!

LOL, JUDY, I'm afraid Penny would never sit still for nail art. It takes 3 to do the mani-pedi--vet clipping, asst. holding her tight to the chest and me plying her with a p-nut butter laden tongue depressor. How can one small dog be so strong?

I have to barrel into some household chores today. Eileen will arrive Thursday afternoon for a four day visit. Yeah! Her Bill left MI for FL today--visiting kids in Sebring. It's always fun when he comes along with her, but awfully nice to have her all to ourselves now and then!

Wishing all a beautiful day and praying for those in need!


glo said...

Good morning everyone. Patches seems to feel really good now. Got about 2 weeks to go but only 4 days of meds left. My guess is vet will wait to see if runs return once meds are finished and if the do she will give her enough to control that through the ond of the 30 days Nexguard will be in her system. I am reading all about natural alrernatives. BUT I am thinking unless I see a flea on her I will do nothing. If I see them then I will try something natural. I am scared for her liver now. so hmmm "just thinking outloud"

Mema Jo said...

Good Tuesday Morning to all ♥

The storms did pass quickly last evening and I hope all is well with those that experienced them. We really only had 2 claps of thunder and lots of rain.

The nest looks quite dry - FEEDING RIGHT NOW.

Mema Jo said...

Ed Clark announced this about the bear cub cam.....

Mema Jo said...

There are 3 male bear cubs being cared for at the Wildlife Center of VA

Mema Jo said...

Judie - do get your wrist checked - you may at least need to wear a wrist brace for a few days.

Kay - I am excited for you and Eileen's visit. It will be girl time.

Glo - Patches' pic over on FB is too cute. She certainly is a sweetheart and I really hope she is feeling perky soon again.

paula eagleholic said...

Oh wow...eaglets looks really big is hanging out under the cam, the other is at the 9 spot

paula eagleholic said...

Not much luck having the live feed on for long today...

Judie said...

Okay, orthopedics has me scheduled for Friday morning. Meanwhile, I am doing as instructed and headed for an Urgent Care nearby for an xray just to make sure there is no fracture.

Going to do a couple of errands, also.


Mema Jo said...

lol = Heart Failure
I opened our cam and couldn't see the two of them lying there together as they usually do - I didn't think I saw enough feetsies - Glanced down at 5:00 position and there was our #2.

Mema Jo said...

Judie - good luck and hoping for no breaks or fractures. Just the results of deep digging in those flower beds

Paula - I was wondering about the weather down your way yesterday.

Hoping Stronghunter Shirley is at the bowling alley and didn't get blown away last evening....

Lolly said...

Good morning! We got our caladium bulbs planted yesterday without getting exhausted. The cooler weather saved us! It was 53 this morning! This is so unusual for us and loving it! We order 300 bulbs, give 30 to Laurel and then we have a big job. Will really enjoy them in about a month or so!

Jack is smoking today...smoking brats and ribs!😜. Looking forward to dinner tonight.

Just saw our two alone in the nest.

Sandi, so happy for you that things are working out at school. Just think of the excitement this time next year!!

STAR testing going on this week. Laurel will be so happy when they are through with this week!

Lolly said...

Got a call from my doctor's office. Getting ready to schedule a MRI on my shoulder. Hoping it is just something that can be fixed with therapy, though not looking forward to that either.

Mema Jo said...

Oh Lolly at a certain age you just have to do what you have to do to take care of yourself. I hope you get a good result from the MRI.

Mema Jo said...

Just checked out the nest - our 2 eaglets really do like the 9:00 position. And they like to be side by side.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Jo, this morning when I brought up the nest, I could only see one and my heart fell. It feels like it takes forever to survey the nest to see where the other one is. Probably like 2 seconds, but feels like 10 minutes. :)

I love how they just plotz out, doesn't matter if the other one is in the way or not.

Mema Jo said...

Hi Sharon - I agree

Be sure to let Justin know I said
Happy 21st........

JudyE said...

JUDIE with all the ice cubes did you make any frozen drinks LOL

apparently a small F1 tornado went through hit my area just down the road from the storm and my house just blocks right when I was in the truck no injuries but 55 homes affected roof etc

JANET make sure no kisses from TOM till he is better LOL

JUDIE hope your wrist get resolved soon pain is not nice

GLO hope Patches is improving on a daily and will be back to normal soon

JO thanks for the bear link will check that out when I get home The wifi here in MCd is not that great but its free so no complaining from me lol

has it made it to your states but Fl this is the third occurrence where state testing on computers the system is crashing Poor kids stress enough with testing now this They need to go back to paper not computer JMHO

I see we were playing hide and seek with the eaglets and SHAR so happy they were found

and I also have had my heart in my throat at times with our nest it is nerve racking for sure

all caught up with the blog 1237 I think is when I punched

I am sure you all have heard about all the stores closing and I don't think it is sewage either

Someone at work told me to google JADE HELM 15 and I just did I will have to finish readin it when I get home lots of info there and videos to see HMMMM not really believing it either

Mema Jo said...

Judy I am really happy that your roof suffered no damage! Close call

JudyE said...

sort of reminds me of the X FILE but no aliens LOL Walmart working with the government underground tunnels, four dead bodies, 15 stores invovled in TX OK CA CO from what I have read would be a good movie or book

It is someone theory I guess

JudyE said...

If anyone want the link to read or just google it I can post the link

I was thinking about posting on FB but be my luck I would get in trouble from work,

JudyE said...

HEY with my new roof I will get a wind mitigation report and my insurance should go down I hope keeping fingers crossed

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I will definitely tell Justin, Jo.

Mema Jo said...

Well I forgot to eat any lunch..
Don't know where my mind has gone..


JudyE said...


BACK TO WORK SEE ya after work

paula eagleholic said...

AMAZING how long it takes the eaglets to become steady on their feets...trying out those big ol clumsy feeties is hard work!

Judie said...

Good late afternoon to all.

Need to read back slowly but later.

Two eaglets enjoying the late afternoon sunshine. So adorable.

Okay, no breaks or hairline fracture. Just did way too much and with the arthritis, my wrist is not happy. However, I did as told and purchased a splint used by those with carpel tunnel. Will see orthopedic guy on Friday morning. Just really painful.

Returned a library book.

Wonder if Lolly has shoulder impingement? As the bone guy told me, it happens with the older folks or those who are into sports (swimming, tennis, etc.).

Headed to the scullery to see what I can accomplish.

Will read back later.

Oh, the bear cubs are addictive. Play fighting when I last looked. Thanks Jo.

JudyE said...

Home from work and Jordyn gym and dinner at BM I just love the pulled pork one meal will do me for two night they give you so much

JudyE said...

My roof is done all with the exception of the gutter and down spout and Angie ordered it today maybe 200. for it she did it on her own instead of through her job Like she said why should Vera get any money LOL

JudyE said...

As I was leaving the gym I saw the juvie flying around the tower was so neat I drove to it and couldn't figure where the little bugger went so I waited a bit then left and as I left I saw her on top of the cement mixer that is next door Didn't go back went to eat was so hungry

JudyE said...

both kids are plots butt to butt almost ok off to TV

Lolly said...

Guess I will find out about my shoulder next Tues. MRI is scheduled for Tues morn. I am not really having a lot of pain and really not a lot of restricted movement. However at times, severe pain that lasts only moments and sometimes just a dull ache. Fixing my hair is not fun. Just need to find out why and do not want it to get worse.

Lovely day working in the yard! Going to have a great dinner on the patio.

JudyE said...

LOLLY I was wondering maybe Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
That is what I was diagnosed with years ago and it can be painfully at times they wanted to go in and take my top ribs out I elected not to do the surgery till it gets worse

JudyE said...


JudyE said...

YOU CAN SEE DARK FEATHER on one chick already Belle I think is digging in the basement Kids are at her side eating

JudyE said...

one doesn't seem to be interested

Judie said...

Well, I thought I would read back and catch up but am really very tired tonight. Think I will whisper to Sandperson that I need some restful sleep. I whispered and...

Sandperson agrees and is packing a satchel. So sweet being quiet and not slamming the closet door or arguing with Jufie.

Restful sleep for all.

Janet said...

good evening all.

SHESSH JUDYE living the exciting life. Tornados ripping down the street. sooooo NOT cool! yikes. You know me and storms, we do not jive!

Its been another busy day. Livvy and I did some retail therapy this afternoon. I like the 5 below store. Got some yoga pants for $5. More water shoes too!

(Dogs ate my water shoes last year. :/ )

Shaping up to be a busy rest of the week. My gal pals Nancy and Chris, Nancy's youngest daughter is coming into town in a couple of days to run the 1/2 marathon here in Nashville. She and her friend will be staying with us.


Hope everyone had a great evening! HUGS to all

Mema Jo said...

If I holler loudly "SHIRLEY"
do you think she could hear me.
I am still looking for her - perhaps she got her passport and left the country. I pray all is well with our
friend - perhaps bowling and then lunch. Putting out the Silver Alarm tomorrow if she doesn't make an

Mema Jo said...

Thanks Judie for sending the sandperson early... I need to be an early bird tomorrow so I'm not late for that Pet Scan at 9:00am.
Thank you all again for having my back - I am fine during these tests because I turn my thoughts to you all

I won't know until next Monday about any results. I just need Prayers and positive thoughts for me to be able to accept anything that comes onto me! Love you all !

Mema Jo said...

Goodnight to all ♥
Sleep soundly and dream sweetly ♥

Mema Jo said...

I found Shirley! Whoo Hoo!

stronghunter said...


Oh my, I did not know I was missing. I have been out running around and playing. We bowled this morning, then had lunch. By the time I picked Hunter up, I was falling asleep, so I took a nice nap.

stronghunter said...

stronghunter said...

Hope that the kitty gets taken care of, Loretta.

Glad that Patches is doing better, Glo.

Will try to check out the bears. Tomorrow should be a quieter day around here.

stronghunter said...

asleep, so I took a nice nap.

Thinking of Jo and her Pet Scan tomorrow. Prayers, Jo. We will have your back.

Oh, Judie, I see you did something to your wrist. Seems like all kinds of things happened while I wasn't here. Hoping for a speedy recovery.

Also, Lolly. Hoping for a speedy recovery for you as well. Goodness, what happens when I am away?

Glad you did not have tornado damage Judy.

There were some small ice cubes thrown at our house, too, Judie. But we did not suffer any damage. Just a bunch of rain and a little hail. After one particularly loud thunder clap, Hunter came downstairs and announced that he wanted to go outside and watch the storm, so he and Kathryn went out on the front porch for a bit. They didn't stay out there very long. It was wet and cold. I was just as happy they came back in.

I found a sore spot on my shoulder. It looks like a burn, but I do not remember doing anything to it. Odd.

Sandi said...

Goodorming my eagle friends.

Jo, prayers for a positive PET scan this morning!

Judie, good news on no fracture.

Shirley, congrats on what sounds like a fun, drama-free and successful bowling season!

Have agreat day all!

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds

Judie said...

Good morning.

I have forwarded through the eagle momster email an email sent to us by a neighbor. Many, if not most of you, may already be aware of the scam but just thought I would send this along.

I see Shirley was located and very happy to know she was just out having a fun life.

Thinking of Jo this morning. I believe the scan will be spot on and there will be no spot.

Headed to get some chores done. Laundry is calling. Have to straighten up before the house cleaner arrives. Was up at 4am so already need a nap.

Have a wonderful day.

Judie said...

Seems the email message did not forward. My apology.

Basically, it is similar to the IRS scam but in this case, the caller has lots of information, including your credit card number. Then asks you to verify the 3 digit security number. Now the caller has everything he/she needs.


Judie said...

New thread. Y'all come on over.

Kay said...

Good Morning from rainy Ohio, Eagle Buds!!!

Prayerful this morning as I think of JO. Telescoping positive thoughts.

JUDIE, so glad you've no broken bones. Hope the brace, meds and babying of the wrist do the trick and quickly!

SANDI, your avatar is so sweet--what a little beauty Freyja is!

SHIRLEY, glad you wound up Tues. posts with happy news of good times! Hope your shoulder pain subsides. Pinched nerve? Bowling injury? These things are often a mystery and I hate to tell you, but they happen more and more frequently as we age!

JUDIE, you sure do have a lot of laundry--you and Darth are either very clean or very dirty!☺

SHAR, so happy in reading back and finding that you're feeling so well at last! Prayer works!

Time to put some finishing touches on the house pre-Eileen's visit. Will be lurking nestside and watching for word from JO--though I don't expect results will be revealed immediately.

Prayers for all in need!!!
