thanks for the new thread and the info steve I will gather the others
I claim the feather since its be a long time As a matter of fact I don't recall what I have done with my bonnet with the others I have collectedTHANKS JO for alerting them that the still is down again I see two eaglets and one ducky in the nest one is at 6 BIG and LIL is with ducky at 9
gm everyone Thanks for the new thread and info on the juvie Steve
Thanks to STEVE and JUDY for the new thread and call over!So a "perhaps former resident" is stirring up trouble again. Hope Belle n' Shep scared it away for good.Also hope JUDY finds her bonnet soon.SANDI, I'm tickled pink for you!!! Next school year is going to be so different for you---wonderfully different!On to mail, newspapers, etc., but will be lurking.Prayers for all in need on this glorious Spring day!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
I'm glad the Intruder got chased away by Belle and Shep. Maybe a fledgling from this next remembering how much good chow was provided and finding being out on one's own ain't all that great! There is plenty in the larder and the kids are just snoozing...
Don't know about you all but my LIVE feed is a PIA goes out easy to get back but a pia keeps going down
each chick is on their owns sides one at 9 and one at 3 almost the same darkness in the feathers soon won't be able to tell apart
58° at the nest now Ducky is still on the scene after Belle dragging it last night out from under Big I thought for sure she would have thrown it over board but still at 10
Good morning,Thanks for the new thread and the information, Steve, and thanks for the call-over, Judy. I am sure you will find your bonnet of feathers.Those two eaglets are looking darker and darker as their feathers grow in. Yes, Judy, I am having trouble keeping the live feed up as well. I seem to have lost my computer mouse. Dang. I will probably just go to the store and get another one. I really miss it.
Belle is making barking noises anyone else hear it just not twice opened beak and made odd noise
I hear GEESE also
feeding going on in the pantry
Shep's been in the nest...doing some fluffing and shading of eaglets.
Excuse me...maybe that's Belle...
Eagles look hot
HI PAULA it is Belle I got some snips of landing on the EM FB page I am heading out for a bit to JoAnnes to use my 60% off coupon on a green styrofoam cone for my chirstmas trees
Kids are plotzed at the 9 and 10 spots...I see a fish in the middle of the nest.Oh, my still cam is back on...thanks for alerting them Jo.
Still cam Up Running Email from IT said:Give it a shot now. Sorry for the delay, I was in training this morning and I'm just catching up.Thanks
Good afternoon.Thank you Steve for the fresh thread and the update.JudyE, have you checked Jordyn's closet for your missing bonnet? Nice visit at the cardiologist office. Numbers are all good except the LDL was a tad high as were triglicerides. She's happy. Back in four months.Grocery shopping done.Friends stopping by later this afternoon for a hi and how are you.Nest looks quiet. Two eaglets plotzed a few minutes ago.Hope everyone is doing well.BBL
back stopped at my fav thrift store got two dresses for Jordyn hope the fit really cute a couple of years ago I put the top of a pineapple on top of the ground and it started growing Now I have a pineapple in the middle of it The plant is maybe 2feet tall I was surprised it has a fruit one it
I'll give you the report of my Cancerous lymph node:I saw this morning my Radiologist and I am a good candidate for theCyber-knife again! That made me very very happy. There isn't any need for surgically inserted markers - that made me even happier. I will have a CT with contrast (date to be determined but probably Mon).If necessary but more so for a safe measure after the radiation I couldbe receiving a week's Chemo.That's it! I'll give you schedule whenever it is decided.
We have clear skies but there isthunder rolling around up there.I may close down for a while& put my feet upBBL
Big Camera shakes...kids really stretched out
Oh Jo, sorry that you have to undergo another procedure, but glad it is one with a great success rate for you.
BIG CAM SHAKE
my cam is still up and running more that 3 hours now Shhh don't tell Gym is shortly Was on the porch moving the metal that was leftover from my roof to the porch Hard to park on carport with it off to the side I have one piece extra of each section ADULT IN
another feeding for BIG LIL is next to ducky at 11
Parent in nest...feeding the eldest at the moment
poof and I think to attic saw shake
Good afternoon eagle friends. Haven't watched our family yet today. Did a little shopping at the nearby outlet mall for my upcoming trip to Alaska next week. It will be highs in 50's while I am there, so no new summery things. There are 5 high school soccer games to attend, so wool socks and my raincoat are on the list. I did find a sweatshirt hoodie that will do as well. I had some pine Siskins at the feeder this morning. I'm afraid I will miss the grosbeaks and indigo buntings if they don't hurry on up here from WV. Send them along you folks in Bluefield!
Just a quick check in on this new thread - headed out for the teacher of the year dinner to support the young math teacher on my team who was chosen as the Teacher of the Year from our school and is in the final 3 for the district teacher of the year. Dinner is at a golf course and country club about 45 minutes from here.Will have to read back and catch up on this new thread tomorrow.
Hope you have a great time at dinner SANDI I will be heading out to the gym just shortly
Looks like rain at the nest...Belle trying to protect the eaglets.
Good Afternoon, Eagle Buds. Having trouble getting the Live Cam on. Thx for report, Paula. That's one reason I got on---TV weather showed storm line around Rte. 66 and it's moving West, not the usual East!!Hope everything stays OK up there. Be Back shortly....
Been an eventful day. Fortunately, things seem OK now. Got a message from Rus that he was in pain and about to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. He was taken to George Washington Hospital, and Susan got there almost immediately. Kathryn and I got there a bit later. So, we were on Judie's old stomping grounds at GWU. At this point, the diagnosis is kidney stones. Cat scan showed nothing, so they think he probably passed them already. He is home now, pretty doped up, and we are getting ready to have some Chinese food.Hunter is with his aunt and uncle down home.
BOTH CAMS ARE DOWN
Prayers for Russ, Shirley.
Praises and Gratitude to The Lord above for JO's news! Yes it is doable. God keep you JO and your medical team.Keeping you in prayers and am forever inspired by your way of reporting your news. As SHAR says, " when I grow up, I want to be just like you." Glad there is no wait. Glad for the rate of success, glad for your determination and strength. God Bless You MEMA JO.
SHIRLEY, prayers for Russ.
Shirley. Good grief, what news! Prayers for Russ. If he passed them all, he will feel better soon.Not Live, but I put my Eagle Nest Photos from this Tuesday in the Nook. Enjoy---may not be able to get many shots anymore.Lolly, glad you don't have a serious shoulder problem, even tho it's painful. Prayers for you and Jo. I agree w/Hoda. Want to be like Jo if I ever grow up.For Judie and all---Kitty update.The one of the two little/wild outside kittens, Tiger, still has sore, hairless skin on one side of neck. Other side is healing.We were not able to catch her in garage to give meds, so will try to trap her and send her to clinic again to see if she can tolerate more shots. Having nightmares about them. She has an autoimmune condition, but acts pretty normal except for itching.The two smallest ones' Mom, Panda, from the first kitten generation has been leaving here. I suspect if she gets hungry, she'll come by. Her sister, Lippy, would love to come inside, but is a loyal outdoor cat for now who greets you asap for petting and tummy rubs! Panda was the opposite.All except, Punkin, the newest, were fixed females and they all hated him! That's probably why Panda left. He's been fixed & much gentler w/them, but they don't trust him. He is in and out, jumps on your lap, sometimes licks your chin, purrs--Loves everybody. The two fixed female housecats don't like him too much.
At Angie I can't get either can up bummer
Hoping Russ pass it quick
Hi,On the way home now. So happy to read Jo's good news.
Good evening.Jo, prayers as always. Momsters are here for you.Shirley, good that Russ is comfortable. Hope the worst is over for him.Loretta, what a catamanagerie. Thank you for the update.Lynne1, what fun to prepare for your adventure. Glad you found some things to take along.Hi Hoda! Are you dragon boating? Are you wearing your sandals without socks?Tired tonight. Asked Sandperson to pack early. Y'all might be dozing off soon.Restful sleep for all.
Just read that JO said cams down
Hi, Safely home. Thanks for your concern and kind words. I expect Rus will sleep soundly tonight.
"Catamangarie." Love it! We had just left Rus's place when Kathryn realized she'd forgotten the cat food she had picked up while at the grocery store where they went for beverages to go with the Chinese food they bought. Fortunately, Susan noticed the forgotten food and grabbed it for her own catamangarie. She has 4 cats living in her apartment. Lucky dined on dry food mixed with a little Chicken and Stars soup tonight. He was happy.
Good night, everyone. SED.
Time to say goodnight to all ♥I have sent email concerning both cams being down. I know on May 6 they are to be shut down due to noisefrom training. That is the statement under the OD screen.I'll let you know if IT emails me like they did today.Sleep well ---- Rain has stopped
Getting on to sy "Hi" as well s goodnight!Sorry to her about an intruder at the nest.Jo, so happy that this new occurrence can be handled quickly and in a manner that pleases you! Prayers for you! MRI time was spent partly in prayer fo you and cousins wife. Flo has been battling brain cancer for a year now. A new treatment started this week.Cleaned my pantry today. Took everything out, threw away a lot, and rearranged. Awesome! A new pantry!Then went outside and played in the mud! Another beautiful day, a few more to come, and then rain returns! PTL!! Lakes need more!When the cam is up, I have a hard time keeping it. However, on my iPad it stays Up! Yay!Night all! SED!
Goodorming my eagle friends. Teacher of the Year dinner was nice but long. Kelsea, the teacher from my school, did not win for the district but still, being chosen as building teacher of the year in your 6th year is a real honor. Didn't get home til 10pm - I am exhausted!Jo, I'm glad you have a plan - let's git er done!Gray and rainy here today. Have a great day all.
Good morning, Cool and grey here today. Congratulations to Kelsea on being chosen building teacher of the year. That is a nice honor, Sandi. One nice thing for Hunter yesterday-- His other grandparents and several members of his dad's family were at his uncle's house, so he got to have a nice visit with them.
Good morning.Looks as if the live cam is down. Boo hiss.Cloudy this morning. Have one errand in mid-morning. Otherwise, just puttering around.Checked all my favorite critter cams and saw lots of hatchings, flappings, hoppings. Wishing everyone a wonderful day.
Good morning to all ♥Red Friday it is !Email from NCTC IT at 9:31 amOur still cam is up/running. ALSO my OD Live feed is up.One question I need answered byOD is WHY can't you just turn off the sound but leave us the view on MAY 6 (Noise from training-firearms I assume) ?????????????????????
PER STEVE: Re: Eagle CamsJo,we are only turning the audio off. The video stays on.Steve**************************The statement under the OD cam now states it is just the audio. They had me worried there for a few !
Good Morning, Eagle Buds!!!JO, good question--looking forward to the response.JUDIE, glad your favorite critters are all Aok. I still have to run through mine on a welfare check.SHIRLEY, glad Hunter got some quality time with his paternal relatives and I do hope Rus is resting comfortably today.SANDI, Kelsea must be quite the teacher---we need more just like her! Sorry you gals are reporting grey skies today---guess they traveled your way from here overnight. It's a sunny day here, about 65 for a high and climbing steadily into 70's and 80's in the next 10 days. Spring temps at last!Prayers for all in need!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Good Morning Eagle Buds56° at the nest I see two in the pantry both side by side ducky is still at 11
Kay - Steve did reply that is is just the sound that is getting turned off - not the cam video.
Judy - I just now set up May's album on Momster's Yahoo.

I am off for some TVEveryone have a good Friday eveningIF I don't return know that Ihave prayers for all ♥
Hmmm, see Sandperson has already made a stop at Jo's abode.Maybe the nest is next on the agenda. Eaglets plotzed with adult having an evening snack.So, I am off to put my feet up. Maybe keep my eyelids open for a few minutes of tv.Restful sleep for all. Weekend is upon us.
Hi, I am seeing two very dark eagle children in our nest. And night is falling over them.Will be going to the bowling alley tomorrow. Had thought we would be going to a winery, but that hasn't worked out.
Busy day, as Friday is mowing day. Everything is looking good what with the rain we have had. Larkspur are just starting to bloom. Also still have roses, Columbine, poppies and Amarillis blooming.Tomorrow we go to Joseph's soccer game.Spent the evening downloading pictures off my phone to laptop and then deleting. Getting it ready for our trip.Thinking it is time to get comply...yawning!Night all! SED,
Hi, Everyone,Well, it's been a busy day today!Ken had been SO miserable with his sore elbow/arm that we went to urgent care this morning. Found out that although he MIGHT have tendonitis, he DEFINITELY has gout in that elbow. Golly, a double whammy! He now has some naproxen to take for pain, and he's taking his gout medication once again. By tonight he was feeling somewhat better! His elbow is less swollen and red, and he can move it without as much pain. Thank God! It was hot as can be here again today. It seems as if every 3 weeks we get super hot weather for about 4 days! Was 97 here today, and should be 87 to 90 tomorrow. By Sunday we are supposed to have a high of 74, then low 70s through Thursday.I'm not looking forward to summer!Jo, so glad that your treatment can begin very soon, and that the success rate has been good in the past. Fervent prayers for your speedy and complete cure!Shirley, hope Rus is feeling MUCH better by now. Kidney stones can be so horribly painful!Well, need to try to get some sleep. Hope the Sandperson has done his job well, and everyone of us has a very restful snooze!God bless, and goodnight. I ♥ us!!
Good MorningEagle Buds I am so tired didn't get home till after 11 not a good thing on a work night but I shall survive lol 53° at the nest and I see two eaglets in middle of nest
Goodorming my eagle friends. What a long, exhausting work week! And I have done very little on those 4 IEPs that need to be written by 5/11. So sadly, it is going to be a long, exhausting weekend of schoolwork. :(Haircut at 10am, neighborhood watch luncheon at noon and then, all work all day. I did get my toes done yesterday after school - now if it would just be warm enough to show them!!My BFF was missing in action yesterday - no text from her, no leasson plans. She was fine at 9:15 on Thursday night at the teacher of the year dinner. Actually, she was a little too fine - her behavior became more and more over the top as the night went on. Finally she admitted what I expected - that there was more than just club soda in her glass. And alcoholics love to lie to themselves and say they can handle a drink every once in a while.Jo, prayers for you today and every day. You can do this!!Have agreat day all.
Good morning.Lovely sunshine and blue sky here. Need to check the critter cams.Congratulations to William and Kate on their Princess.Andy, very sorry about Ken's pain and hope he heals quickly. Sorry about the hot weather - not something I enjoy, either.Also hope Shirley's Rus is fully recovered. Nothing much on the agenda today. Maybe just putter around the house.Off to visit the critter cams. Have a great day everyone.
Good morning to all ♥Happy day for me - I am getting an afternoon visit from Master Elliot and his mom and dad. I am very excited!
Andy - so sorry to hear of Ken's elbow pain - I think any joint painis just horrible! Hope his meds can help him to where the pain goes away. Sandi - hope the luncheon is serving good food ! You are a busy gal but when you retire you will have things to do and enjoy!Shirley - sorry the winery trip fell through - would have been a beautiful day for it. Have fun with your friends at the alley!JUDY - You really are not a night owl ! Hope your work day goes fast so you can go home after the towers and nap.Lolly - I'm sure you are getting excited about your upcoming trip.Get that RV packed and head out.Judie - critter cams are getting active - especially those little bear cubs
Loss of an eaglet at the IWS Two Harbors nestMay 2, 2015 — bald eagle, birds, Eagle, eaglecam, eaglet, IWS, nature, Two HarborsSadly, per reports from nest cam watchers and a later IWS report, one of the two chicks at the Two Harbors nest fell from the nest Friday afternoon. There is about a 300 ft drop from the side that the chick fell from so it was very unlikely to have survived. Hugs and condolences to all who love and watch this nest.
Our oldest eaglet looks as though he grew into a Juvie overnight ! lolAll feathers seem to be good and black - I almost thought it was an intruder in the nest when I brought up the cam! He is walking upright just like a pro.I see now that Ducky is still in the nest and looking good.
BBL this early evening after mycompany leaves. We did purchase a activity seat so I can watch him.He is toooooo many pounds for me tohandle in my arms. TTUL
1203 lunch and I almost had a heart attack didn't see both of the in the pantry only saw one they blended togethersad news about the eaglet falling out of nest that has always worried me in all the nest JO great news on getting some Elliot timehope RUS and KEN get better soon
Good Afternoon Eagle Buds!!!Oh, happy day, Elliot is visiting MeMe Jo this afternoon! I'm sure he'll love his "activity seat"!Sad news from Two Harbors nestdom. I guess it's called Wildlife for a reason. Enjoy reading nest and Momster activity reports!Prayers for all in need!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Luncheon was very nice - the food was yummy and the company was good (neighbors I haven't seen all winter).Jo, sounds like a wonderful visit with Elliot!I have been diligently working on IEPs. I can proudly say 1 down and 3 more to go! I feel like the Little Engine that Could - I think I can, I think I can ...Texted my BFF to ask if she is OK and got no response. Texted another teacher on the team who said she tried to call last night and got no answer. Very mysterious.Enough school work for 1 girl for 1 day - Kentucky Derby is over so now I can watch mindless TV shows for the rest of the evening.See you in the early AM.
One eaglet is on top of ducky the other next to him I think LIL is on ducky
nope its BIG on ducky noticed just now OK time for some mind numbing TV LM for me
BELLE is moving the duck again
Good late evening.Jo, so very happy you had such a lovely time with your boyfriend Elliot. There is a name for older women with much younger love interests - Jo's a Cougar. lolSandi, congrats on the completed IEP and glad you enjoyed the luncheon. As for BFF, has anyone called a local hospital? Maybe she checked herself in for rehab. Yeah, you're right. Not likely.Sandperson is packed and ready to depart. I am ready to head across the hall to put my feet up. Lots of aches and pains today. Restful sleep for all.
LOL LOL JUDIE JO the Cougar I am right behind you Security system is armed please be sure to use your code if out past curfew Well I'm calling it a day SED ♥AOYPSee ya in the am ☼ at Sycamore Sunrise Cyber CafeBless this Nestand all ♀ ♥ ♂ whom watch it at Sycamore Palace Healing thoughts forthose in need"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone is fighting some kind of battle."

Had lunch with Laurel and Joseph then came home and worked outside.Also watched the Derby!Tomorrow church and a birthday party!Making plans for Mother's Day. Looks like Michael and Zach will here Saturday. Laurel and family will be here Sunday, unless they decide to come Saturday, too.Getting really sleepy! Night all! SED!
Good Morning Eagle Buds48° at the nestboth are in the middle of the nest facing the same way Ducky is at 9 no adult in the nest at present
Goodorming my eagle friends.Have been up since 6am but processing checks for the property owners association (174 of them to be exact).Also ran several scans on my laptop. I'm trying to be diligent about scanning it on a regular basis. I pay for my antivirus so the virus scans are scheduled and run automatically, but Malware Bytes, Super Antispyware and CCleaner are all free versions so I have to start the scans manually. It seems that no one program picks up everything when it runs a scan.Anyway, that's why I wasn't on earlier. I did watch our 2 youngins attempt some self feeding from the fish in the nest. They were getting the hang of stepping on it and then trying to pull pieces off and I think they both managed to get a little to eat. Now they are snoozing in the sun. A parent must be in the tree - I see the cam shake occasionally. My goal is to finish another IEP today. Then I will only have 2 more to write - we will all have to have a virtual drink to celebrate when I finish the 4th and last one.Still no news on the ELA teacher on my team. But I did get a phone call from our testing coordinator that she has a resource teacher on stand-by in case we need another teacher on the hallway so we can start state testing tomorrow. That makes me think she has heard that Kim will not be back tomorrow, though she wouldn't give away anything (our testing coordinator is a guidance counselor and they're really good at that confidentiality thing).Prayers for all, especially Jo. Have a great day!
Good morning.Ah, basking in the sunshine. Sure looks peaceful in nestland.My apology to Mema Cougar for forgetting the Mema part. Good morning, Mema Jo.Sandi, congrats on completing IEP #2. Yes, a virtual celebration will be in order. Will be interesting to know if BFF shows up. Good part is her absence has been anticipated.Andy, very good news that Kubby is feeling better. Hope the healing continues.Sad for the loss at Two Harbors. Off to a sunshiny blue sky day. Think I'll just mostly do a lot of nothing.Wishing everyone a lovely day.
Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!SANDI, glad you're nearing the end on those durn IEP's. I'm kinda worried about your MIA BFF---has anyone gone by her place to check on her? Could she be in need of medical attention or could she have hied herself off to a rehab facility? Inquiring minds await the next chapter in her sad, sad tale.I'm following JUDIE's wise lead and heading out into the glorious sunshine and a day that will near 80°!Will be watching our eaglets as they mature before our eyes--and their ducky, too!Prayers for all in need!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Good morning,Will be checking on the eagles in a bit. Relaxing for the moment. So happy Jo had some Elliot time.
Hoping that your fellow teacher is located soon, Sandi, or is at least it is determined she is safe wherever she is. Very sad about the lost eaglet.Nice to know Ken is better. Rus is doing fine. He showed up awhile ago to help Hunter build a catapult for a school project. They have gone to the store to buy supplies. Hunter was talking about using 2x4s. I hope everyone remembers that this thing needs to fit into my car if I am to deliver it to school.
on lunch WAY to GO SANDI two to go and will be waiting that drink watching our two at 12 NEZ don't know if adult is in just see eaglets without heads LOL
one of the eaglet is sitting on ducky must me soft LOL
Hoping that the aches and pains disappear on this lovely day, Judie. I am heading to the kitchen in search of food.
Good afternoon to all ♥I had Jenny and Susie visiting this morning. Some beautiful flower pots are now waiting to be filled. Lolly - forget it and just leave the RV home this time. I missed out earlier. Italy it is!Andy - thankful Ken's meds are working on the pain. Congratulations Sandi - sounds like you are on a roll !Very beautiful day - one to be outside. However; my AC is ready to go if and when needed.
Shirley I hope your day yesterday at the bowling alley was fun. Does Hunter's dad have a truck for that project?
As you can see, Elliot's pic fitsvery well as my Avatar. I have many more photos but this one is a favorite. He was 4 months old on the second of May.
Hunter's dad does have a truck, Jo. But I am hoping I can take care of things. Of course, Kathryn's Honda CRV can haul pretty good loads as well.
HEY HONEY I am home how was you all day79° at the nest both eaglets are at top of nest maybe a adult is there NHZ only see to headless eaglets and one is sitting on ducky I think it is LIL
ANNOUNCEMENT ... drum roll, please!IEP #2 is 99% finished - it turns out I left 1 piece of Austin's paperwork in school so I had to leave about 3 sentences incomplete until I can get to school tomorrow and refer to the form he filled out.Two down, two to go! Time for some sunshine - I have 2 chubby dachshunds who could use some exercise.BTW, got a text from my BFF that said, "I will call you - it's been a crazy couple of days." So she is alive! Stay tuned!
Good to know she is with the living, Jo.
YEAH SANDI way to go and so happy your BFF is alive and can't wait to here whats up
JO Elliot pic is priceless He is all boy looks like he has lost his baby look already So stinkin cute and I love SANDI avatar also I smile each time I see them both
Good afternoon all. I was going to give a nest report, but JudyE beat me to it. I'll bet the kids are studying the world below them.Planted some geraniums in the window box yesterday. I would love to be let loose in the plant nursery with a fat pocket. I will refrain from any more planting until I return from my trip in a few weeks. It was a beautiful day and I even got sunburn.I hope everyone's is having a happy day.
LYNNE1 do you use seeds for flowers? I have done that and its so much cheaper that live plants Adult is there with kids I see beak stretching over then on occasion She is groooming the kids
Good Afternoon Eagle Buds!See the nest is quiet with 2 napping chicks and their Ducky!!Can't believe it's this warm today. Been in & out & up & down---laundry inside, getting some deck pots ready for new plants and perennials got fertilizer yesterday. I'm p.o'd that some pers. did not come back. Boo. I might wait awhile to see if they start.On Sat., I saw a mystery medium size butterfly flitting through the entire magnolia tree. It has new leaves, no flowers. It was kind of brownish w/a few spots. Have to see if some like that come out this early. Saw starlings starting to nest next door in a hole in tree trunk. Squirrel who came too close got dive bombed!Congrats to Sandi!!Good Health Prayers for Mema Jo and everyone else ☺ ♥
Belle is still on the edge I just saw her beak peek over the chicks don't know if she was preening them just saw white head and yellow beak They are panting I see the back go up and down super fast 78° at nest now
Good late afternoon!Lynne - I always like to plant the geraniums as they seen to stay allsummer. Sandi ! Don't you just love it when you can surprise yourself as to what you can accomplish when you set yourdeadline. Yeah for you ! Loretta you have an active back yard!
Judy, I use seeds for some things, like morning glory and green beans, but with a much shorter growing season than you have, I rely on starts from the nursery. Yes, Jo, I realized that geraniums do much better than impatiens in the window box. And they lasted until the frost.BTW, I saw the first of season hummingbird today..
ADULT in BOTH
POOF already but one at 11
Bowling on Saturday was fun. I did pretty well on the two games we played--they will be my last two free games of the season because I won't be on a league this summer.
Time for me to say good night. I'll see you tomorrow. SED.
Good "getting on to late evening" everyone.Loretta, did your butterfly also have some blue markings? Google and let us know if you recognize the type.Sandperson is already packed up and ready to be on the way. Says it is nice to not have to bundle up in heavy coats and socks and all manner of winter garb. Makes traveling light have a whole new meaning.Restful sleep for all.
Has been a good day! Not much excitement. Party for friend was nice. Given by her family for her 80th. Her husband is in a nursing home with hospice care. Her sister is also with hospice. Glad we could give her a happy, memorable day.Looks like Laurel and family want to come here next Saturday, too. That is the only day Michael can bring Zach and they want to see Zach and Michael. So, my Mother's Day is Saturday! Jack plans to grill steaks. We leave in 9 days! Getting so excited. All ready except for packing.Tomorrow routine dental for cleaning. Getting do done Thursday. Checking things off the list!😀Night all! SED!
Lolly, my mother's day is also going to be Saturday - that way all the kids can come.Headed to the pillowsGoodnight to allSweet Dreams to all and prayersfor all your needs ♥
Goodorming my eagle friends - another work week. State testing for 8th grade starts tomorrow, should take about 3 weeks for me to get all my kids tested.Prayers for you, Jo.Have agreat day.

Good morning, Relaxing this morning. Kathryn and Hunter will be going to the allergist later, so he is staying home from school. The catapult is finished and is sitting in the living room.
Big just did a round of serious wingercizing -- fully extended and vigorous. Just what I should be doing to strengthen my recovering arm! The kids are almost as big as the parents and getting so dark!
good morning to all. just finished reading up on all your doin's..... sounds like everyone had a great, productive weekend!it was sunny and warm all weekend and such is anticipated all week.Saturday was grocery day. and then in the evening tom and I went out and celebrated our wedding anniversary, albeit a week late. lol. no company, grandkids, or ailing pups this weekend! slept LATE yesterday. think I was tired. spent the day outside in the sun an d got the pool up and going. it isn't difficult, but has to be done step by step...put the pump/filter unit back out, fill with sand, hook up hoses, make sure they have enough plumbers tape not to leak, etc etc etc. by evening it was full again and we put chemicals in. it is so pretty this morning.too cold for me to get into quiet yet, still only about 68. but with this sun it should warm nicely!school days are winding down. i'll be glad for the break!and not this weekend, but next I go camping!LOLLY: know you are excited about your trip! STRONGHUNTER: how much longer does HUNTER have before his school is out?SANDI: rock on. You got this. a few more IEP's and you are out the door.!To one and all, have a glorious day! Hugs and love
Good Morning, Everyone,I'm up early today, so dropping in to say howdy before I get too busy. We were supposed to meet Sis-in-law for an early breakfast today, but she had to cancel. Her bulldog, Charlee, has a runny nose and is sneezing like mad, so she's taking her in to the vet as soon as they open. Could be an allergy attack, or maybe a respiratory infection. Better safe than sorry! It was much cooler here yesterday, and our breeze from the ocean is back in place! Supposed to be in the 70s and high 60s this week, with a chance of showers on Friday. That's more like it! Thank God for some relief from the heat!Can't believe how big the eaglets are getting! It's truly amazing!Ken continues to improve. His elbow still complains a bit when he moves a certain way, but it's SO much better than it was! Oh--slight interruption--had a phone call from an insurance company with a quote. (At 6 am?!)Would you believe our homeowner'sinsurance company cancelled our insurance?! (Gee, thanks.) As soon as our claim for the slab leak was closed, we got a cancellation notice in the mail!We're having to look for a new company before June 15th. Aargh!Well, need to do some laundry, so better get it done early. Hope everyone has a wonderful day! I ♥ us!
Good morning to all ♥I was up around 7am and went back to sleep until 10! That is so late for me. Wow it is already up near 75° and 79° at the nest. I guess we'll see some panting eaglets today.
Andy - that just doesn't seem right about the insurance cancellation. Any chance you can get Homeowners with whomever you have car insurance.After all repairs they should knowyou are not a threat anymore.
This afternoon I start with gettingmy body cast made for the Cyber-knifeThen later I get a navigational CT for the Cyber-Knife programing.Probably won't be until Friday forthe treatments to start. No Chemo for now!
Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!JO, "no chemo for now" is music to the ears! Good luck as you do all the Cyber-knife prep stuff!ANDY, doesn't an insurance cancellation just fry ya? Those companies beg for our business and then bail on us on the few occasions when we have to use the policies. Arrrrrggggghhhhh. Perhaps you should call the BBB and ask for a mediator, unless you'd just a soon quit doing business with such a company. Remember, word of mouth works, maybe you could share the name of that co. on our Yahoo mail, as a buyer beware notice for us????I had a heck of a time getting the cam to come up, but finally did. Eaglets comfortably basking in the sunshine--a lovely sight!Whoops, I spoke too soon. It's on again off again---probably due high viewership. Shirley, how large is the catapult? I can't even estimate the number of projects I helped the kids haul to school over the course of raising 3 students. Parents/grandparents deserve extra credit for that!Tee-hee JUDY, "may the Fourth be with you", too!Prayers for all in need!!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Good almost noon time.I see the eaglets are progressing to the familiar positions of "wow, what a big world out there."Have already had a nap. Jo must have put a "nap spell" on me. Now must tackle a couple of inside chores. Jo, very good news it seems that the cyber knife can be used. I recall that was your choice originally. Thoughts and prayers and hugs, as always.Andy, it seems if you and Kubby were not the cause of the problems, you might have a case for unfair homeowners insurance cancellation. At a minimum, a call to the BBB might provide advice/guidance. Okay, on to my chores.BBL
ANDY I would call the insurance commissioner on the co I think that is uncool for them to do that Let them know that you just filed a claim I think in Fl that is against the law to cancel it
Been on lunch since 1214 but the PIA spinning circle wouldn't left me post flash player kept crashing now I am up and almost time to go back to work got caught up JO great news on the no chemo for now fantastic news
I am not sure about the measurements of the catapult, but I think it will fit in my car. Might have to go in the trunk with the lid tied down, but we'll be okay.
Afternoon, all!Looks lovely at the nest...can still tell our two apart.I think the white stuff in the middle of the nest is duckie stuffing :):):)Had a nice weekend. We went fishing yesterday...got a bit chilly at times as the water temperature is still in the 50's!!
Have the windows open here at work...can hear an osprey chirping every once in awhile :)
Everything went very wellCast is made and CT is doneFeet upBut don't know what is for dinner ashubby and I had an ice cream conein between the 2 appointments.BBL
Hello been home for a bit watching the the three in the nest at 11-12 just sitting there in the NEZ from FB ""Ozzie, the bald eagle from the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam has been moved to the small flight enclosure. He was scheduled to be relocated there last week, but due to inclement weather, he was moved to a smaller enclosure that had better coverage to protect him from the rain. Ozzie now has full range of motion of both wings and will continue to wear carpal bumpers and tail guard to prevent additional injury. In the small flight enclosure, Ozzie will have opportunity to take small flights to build his strength and fully expand his wings. No release date has been scheduled. #ozziebaldeagle
Adult in with greens prob Belle
poof out the back door fast visit out for more I see shake on cam juvie looks up and is nibbling on greens
Hello everyone!I came to wish Carolyn a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! yet I see no one else has. Was my email incorrect or my memory faulty?JO, please know that your healing is always in my heart! Hope everyone else is well and enjoying the weather. Hot and humid will soon be here!
Good evening all.Found out this afternoon that the English teacher on my team will be out for the rest of this year - "medical reasons" is the only explanation we were given.When I got home, I got a text from the ELA teacher that she was OK and had met with the personnel director today who told her she would not be coming back to school this year. I texted her back and said we had been given no explanation and asked if she was willing to share any info with us. She texted back that she was not allowed to say anything but asked for prayers.I then texted the principal and asked him to meet with all of the teachers on the team first thing tomorrow morning so we are all on the same page with what we say to the kids when they ask questions.Andy, that really sucks about the insurance company! I have heard of the same thing happening to several of our friends and neighbors. Like Kay said, you pay your premiums every year for the express purpose of having the insurance if/when you need it. But when you need it, they turn around and drop you for filing a claim! GGGRRR!!! I HATE insurance companies - what a scam!!!Had to grocery shop tonight and here it is 9pm already! I am headed to the bathtub and then to bed. State testing looms!Goodnight all - see you in the early AM!
Jo, so pleased for you that the procedures this afternoon went nicely. You and Mr. Jo sure deserved that ice cream cone. Yum!Sandi, is this English teacher the same as the BFF or is this a different person? I am getting on in years and become confused. Not lol. Your request, however, is a reasonable one so everyone knows what to say to the children.Got a call earlier from a former student who is now a homicide detective in Houston. She has a particularly nasty case. She'll solve it, I'm sure.So, again tonight I am very tired and not enjoying the aches and pains. Headed to the pillows in a few minutes.Sandperson is packing a satchel and will be on the way soon. Restful sleep for all.
Time to hit the pillows.I feel asleep watching TV so as soon as I say Goodnight to all ♥ I'm closing my eyes.Suzan - I acknowledged Carolyn's birthday over on her FB Page. Your email was right but lots don't know her and Carolyn doesn't come onto the blog.GOODNIGHT TO ALL ♥
Goodorming my eagle friends.Judie, yes - the English (aka ELA) teacher IS the gal I refer to as my BFF. The fact that she is no longer in the building makes my life simpler b/c her behavior was so erratic that it was often difficult for me to work with her. But things had improved between us lately. I suspect that she was stopped by the police on the way home from the teacher of the year dinner where she had too much to drink and she failed a breathalyzer test. She has at least 1 DUI on her driving record, maybe more. I am thinking rehab?Jo, prayers continue for you.Have agreat day all.
Happy birthday, Bob - in case you stop by the blog today!!
Good Morning Eagle Budsadult just poofed as I sit and typeHAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB and HAPPY BIRTHDAY BELATED ONE CAROLYN
Good morning.♪♫ Happy Birthday to Bob Quinn ♪♫ May today be the first day for yet another year of lovely wildlife pictures.Sandi, thanks. Thought it is the same person but not sure. Sure hope everyone agreed on a united front for the children. Hope rehab is her current address.Need to check the nest and other critters. Also need to get my coffee.Lazy day planned.Wishing everyone a wonderful sunshiny day.
Good morning all. Happy Birthday to our Bob Quinn.Today I do the last minute running around before my trip to AK. Hoping I am well rested and ready to leave at 530 Thursday morning when the ride service will be here.Baltimore Orioles visited feeder here yesterday. Spring is definitely here.Happy day to all.
Good morning,Happy birthday to Carolyn!Happy birthday to Bob!Just finished my second cup of coffee and am kind of awake. Riding around today with a catapult in the back seat. The car smells of freshly-cut lumber. Hunter wants to take it in to his teacher after school today, so I had him put it in the car this morning. That way I can deliver it when I pick him up this afternoon. We had a quick trip to the ER with Hunter yesterday evening. He had a possible reaction to medication for a sinus infection. All is well now. Two ER trips in less than a week is quite enough, thank you. We were there with Rus on Thursday and there with Hunter yesterday.
Hi, Lynne1. I need to try attracting some Baltimore orioles. I don't think I have ever seen one. Just hung a pot of red geraniums on the back porch for the hummingbirds, just in case they want to visit when I don't have the feeder out there. Still reading Virginia's book. I did find her references to Shepherdstown and Martinsburg. Also a mention of the Hunter and Sample family--my ancestors. :) I am now on the part about the Battle of Chancellorsville.
Shirley, I am on chapter12. Must be really fun to read your kin's names. Glad my Great grandfather wasn't, as far as I know, in any of those battles. William Beard sure spent a lot of time in the infirmary. That may have saved his life. I hope to finish the book before my trip, but it is not at the top of the list today.The Orioles like my quince bush. Last year they went through a couple of jars of jelly in my oriole feeder. I have never had luck putting out oranges.
Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!A soggy one here after 12 hours of rain. Happy to have the rather smelly mulch applied by landscapers last week watered down. Hope it takes away that odor. Think it's called "coffee mulch", very dark in color and spiffy looking.Speaking of things that are dark in color, I do so love seeing two black lumps of thriving, happy eaglets in their favorite spot this morning. Looks like the ducky is almost history.HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOB QUINN! Wishing you a "picture perfect" day!!!SHIRLEY, I love the smell of fresh cut lumber, don't you---though I'm sure you'll be glad when the catapult is safely in the hands of Hunter's teacher. Here's hoping you've seen the last of ER for a very, very long time!LYNNE1, I've seen just one Baltimore Oriole here in Central Ohio---at the Ohio State Wetlands Area. He must have blown in from your neck of the woods.SANDI, thanks for clarification--so glad your BFF is receiving some kind of help/confinement and that she'll never again figure in your life as she has for a couple of years now.Prayers for all in need as I head into lurk mode!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
I didn't find anything interested in the oranges I put out, Lynne1. I haven't tried an oriole feeder. Need to get busy here. BBL.
I do hope your BFF finds help, Sandi. I remember that my 9th grade English teacher had some similar problems. I do not know how long she had been at the school before my family moved to town, but she was not asked back the next year. I probably had more information about her problems because my parents were teachers in the school.
Those two eaglets really do have lots of black feathers. Wow.
Yes, the smell of fresh cut lumber is very nice. I will enjoy it while I can.
Jo, thank you for clarifying things for me. Happy Birthday Bob Quinn! Seems like our eaglets are growing up so very fast this year. Wishing everyone a good day!
Happy Birthday to our favoriteWildlife photographer, Bob.Enjoy your day and we hope you come and see all your well wishes andthat you bring us some more photos
Good morning to all ♥We have thunderstorm in our afternoonforecast. It was dismal looking but now it is quite bright out there.I love seeing our eaglets now standing and walking upright. Lynne your trip sounds like a dream com true. I'm sure that Thursday you will be more then ready to go if for no reason other then 'nerves of excitement' .
Shirley I'm glad Hunter is ok - no more trips to ER but thank goodnessfor ER's being there when you need them. My one niece heads the ER here at Frederick Memorial and she has her Masters in Nursing.. Sheloves the ER work - don't think I could ever handle it.
Kay - may the sun come out and shine on "Soggy". Sandi - praying for BFF to take a turn in her life - Addition is sovery hard. Your welcome, SUZAN - have a good day. Barbara, I hope you are doing your wingercising daily. ♥Judie, Enjoy your 'lazy' day. Judy, may your work day seem short!WE NEED A FERSH NEW THREAD,PLEASE AND THANK YOU
lol - FERSH is fresher than FRESH.......... I bet you read right over my typo
Good morning! Rain chances every day this week! Bring it on! Andy, so very sorry about the insurance woes! Grrrr!One week from today we depart! Wahoooo! We are so ready! Just a few items to check off our "get ready" list! So ready to pack the suitcase!Today going shopping for a new grill! Jack says our present one is ready for the garbage! So off we go....new gas grill! He is grilling steaks Saturday for Mother's Day!Sandi, had a vp with this problem. Apparently she had a bottle in her desk at school! I never had a clue! Lovely lady, younger than me. She had a hubby and two beautiful little girls. Then she took her own life. Very sad!Time to start my day! Have a good one!
Our eagle children look very calm. Whatever the parents are hollering about does not seem to be a problem for the. They do look like they are breathing hard. Must be pretty warm in that sunshine this afternoon.
Enjoy that new gas grill, Lolly.
I remember a superintendent who had a problem with the bottle. He did not last very long. I recall that most people thought he was pretty much wasted by noon each day.
1219 punch read the blogso all caught up both out eaglets are at the launch pad looking out on the worldSHIRLEY so sorry about the ER trips so happy thing turned out okLOLLY and LYNNE1 will be traveling sort sure wish you all could take us with you especially to AK want to see all the eagles therenice to see you again NCSUZAN hope more of our absentee start showing up
KAY soggy days are for napping in my book
Good afternoon my eagle budlets. Haven't checked in for a while. Looks like we have 2 hot eaglets. Unreal how big they have gotten. I see Cuddle Duck is still present, but looking a little dirty. :)
Thanks, Judy. Yesterday, Kathryn called the pharmacy and the pharmacist said she should take Hunter to the ER. That's what sent us into action. It is better to be overly cautious.
Good evening to all ♥Hubby took me out for some errandrunning. Got exactly what I went forand so it's Home Again.Headed in for Jeopardy and NCISTomorrow I get a haircut... Wish youcould see all these soft curls! lolBBL or IF NOTGoodnight to all and God Bless ♥
Good early evening.Quiet time at the nest which is good.Jo, glad you accomplished your errands. Sleep well.Vascular ultrasound tests in the morning.Headed across the hall to watch some tv then to the pillows so I can wake up on time.Sandperson's alarm just sounded so satchel packing and departure is imminent.Restful sleep for all.
Just got home from work and Jordyn gym and on the way home I noticed a cell tower two eagles were on it I got pic and a video of one fly away and then the other just sat there Came home gave up on the other one leaving ODD the cell tower has no bottom that is the one they took the bottom from last year I can't see any nest in it they were just hanging out there I am going to ask Sue if that was a nest before I do think it was
when I first sat down I almost had a heart attack only one black blob at launch pad then I see one talon at 11 so the other is hiding from us so happy I saw that talon
I am uploading pic now and want to put to fb and YouTube for the video short as it is LOL
