Wow! Thanks Steve! Will call the others over!
Welcome home Steve.Thank you for the article. I saw it and read it earlier. Good to have it here.Thank you Lolly.RAINING!What bliss!What Joy!All good here.
Be wellStay well.What joy!
Well, since so many have dropped out and seldom if ever post, I get to add a feather frequently to my headdress! LolGood morning! Still warm, 75, and humid!Today dental appointment for broken tooth. Sigh.......I see a new crown in my future! Ha ha! Lynne2, bet I have more crowns than you!Have a great week!
Hi Hoda! Still raining up there!
All night SaturdayAll day SundayAll night SundayHoping for all day Monday.When people are ready they will be back.My experience. Otherwise wish them well and let it be.My thoughts on the subject.
Very good, Hoda!I agree but. Certainly do miss people! Have a great rainy day!😍
Good "almost noon time" to all ♥Hi Lolly and congrats on that featherThank you Steve - especially for the article! I've kept busy this morning with just odds and endsCalls for a thunderstorm perhaps today - o sign of any rain yet.I think Judy saw one of the eaglets fail getting up on the stump! Won't be long.I only give them about 2 more weeks until MT Nest.Good luck at the dentist Lolly! I'll try to be back later today or this evening! xoxoxoxoxoxo
The article Steve brought to our attention is well worth reading.Woods Hall turned their cam off.People moved on.Why do we have cams?What is their purpose?I watch this cam because we do not interefere.Yet Drama has happened here Yet we also have had hysteriaAnd we stay the course.I remember the angst Shep's arrival caused me.It was ugly.He was ugly.Belle gave him a proper beating.Fended him off.Chick starved to death.Oh the drama that ensued!Did she eat it?Did she bury it?As if it mattered!It is a wildlife nest.They are wild Eagles.Assigning human behaviour, names or characteristics to them has been problematic.It is a privilege to watch them.It is best to not interfere.Norfolk GardensThe White Rock nest.And so on...Best to not interfere.
I posted on previous thread. Internet very very slow so not copying and reposting. I am busy with my "little guest" this week. Lots of photos on fb if you want to check my wall or patches Place. Congrats on the feather Lollu. hagd everyone
THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD STEVEAND THE CALL OVER LOLLYAND THE link STEVE just walked in
Thanks for a New Thread. Good afternoon Lolly, Hoda and Jo. Was watching Shamrock(?)practicing flight. A little warmer here and was sunny but starting to cloud up some. Lolly - congrats on your feather. I'm just about finished with my brother-in-law's estate. Talked to a lawyer today about a deed transfer of his house. Lwayer explained it was not necessary. My brother-in-law's twin brother can live in house but must maintain it and pay taxes, etc. until he no longer wants to live there anymore. If he moves, then he must "deed" his share to his nephew. Was so glad the lawyer explained things clearly. Offered to pay him for advice but he said that was not necessary. Steve - thanks for the article and it was interesting reading. I think it is hard not to get attached to Belle, Shep and their offspring. I have not watched that much but I can understand people's feelings. Have a great rest of the day. Jo - gald to see you posting rtegular and I hope you are getting better daily. Take care all.
Forgot to say good afternoon to Gloria and Judy. Gloria - enjoy your visitors.
Hi all. Thanks Steve for the new thread and thanks Lolly for the call over. Hope the dentist visit went OK.The courts dried out for tennis and, though it has been mostly cloudy all day, it has stayed dry. Some more rain tonight and early tomorrow and then sun and warmer temps for Wed. and Thurs., my next 2 days off!Tennis was good fun and good exercise. It was great to be back on the court - haven't played for about a month. Physical therapy also went well - Thursday is my last session.When I got home from PT and running errands, there was trash strewn across the living room area rug from the kitchen trash can and a very guilty-looking greyhound standing next to it. Stupid me, I thought what I saw in the living room was the extent of the mess! Nope, there was MUCH more in the dining room AND the kitchen! I just hope that, with everything Janey ate, the trash is the only mess I have to clean up in the house! Janey can't say the little dogs did it b/c they were securely locked in their crates, sound asleep when I came in.Time to fix food for people and pets.
Monday afternoon. Hello to all.Thanks to Steve for the lovely new thread and congrats to LOLLY for her feather!Oh dear, Sandi, sorry you had a mess to deal with. Hopefully that is the only mess to come….and so glad you are back to the courts!HODA: so glad you have had rain.I have been semi connected for a few days, but for the most part, mentally disconnected from news, etc. And, as of an hour ago, my bliss came to an end. Angst amongst the oldest children. I am so over the fussing and feuding and nonsense that has been since Thanksgiving. I feel both frustrated and sad. And of course, I am the bad “guy”….Aside from that….all is well. The weekend was phenomenal. Made new friends. Reconnected with old friends. Hugs. I learned many things. I participated in new things. I learned Reiki drumming. So much joy. There were moments were people were…well, people and not always nice. But that is human nature. I have worked on cleaning the RV and catching up on laundry. I have cleaned the pool. Maybe will plant the garden this evening. I hope everyone is well. I have thought of each of you over the weekend….sending healing, loving thoughts to one and all. I hope I can find a satisfactory end to the children’s problems…but I suspect it may take a while. HUGS to all
Good afternoon Sandi and Janet. Sandi - sorry about your mess. Janet - glad you had a good weekend. Starting to rain here and looks like at the nest too. I think Shamrock wants to fly away to a drier place. :-) I'm having buffering issues with Cam. Looks like it is being worked on.
SANDI so sorry for the mess Angie has that happen to her at time no fun!JANET so sorry about older kids issue and super happy you had a good time. Hope all works out eventually Riff in family really suck!I wonder if Lydia got to the nest she had mentioned on FB she may JUDIE thinking of you and DARTH hope all is good Come and stop in and say HEY I agree with JO about the blog seems to be fading again.Angie sent me on a mission to find a poodle skirt for Jordyn. So happy I can an did find at Party City. She wanted me to check second hand stores but PC was easier and being short notice no time to sew one. But the ironic thing is after I bought the outfit I remember it senior day at some of the thrift store. So I went and guess what I found what would have been the perfect PINK skirt only 4.99 and would have been half off. But being short notice I didn't get it. I got her a scarf and poodle socks also and there is a Pink Ladys bomber jacket also I can't wait to see pictures tomorrow
Nice fish was delivered again third food today they eaglet were feed this time Last time was just dropped and ran
I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's baby, Hoda. They must be frantic after 3 days of NICU.Hope Kay is enjoying her visit with daughter Eileen. Every family seems to have child squabble problems, Janet. Had a good radio show today. We tape once a week. Just a quiet day here - lots of bullies snoring. You comment about still feeding the eaglets, Judy, reminds me of these little sparrows on our deck rail - all four of them - and the mom is dropping bird seed into their mouths. ;)
Just a quick good night. I will check in again tomorrow. SED, everyone.
heading to bed. sleepy. time to dent the pillows. thanks all for the comments....needed the encouragement. squabbles, esp ones that have lasted several months are exhausting, frustrating, and discouraging! SED to one and to all!
Good morning. I see Shamrock and Clover and a foggy nest. Both look active. Have a great day. Take care all.
Goodorming my eagle friends. Guess what - it's raining!Janet, so sorry about the adult children drama. It;s painful to watch and hard to know what and how much to say without overstepping boundaries. Good luck.Lori and Hoda, it's really nice to see you popping on the blog more often.Jo, prayers continue for you for strength and healing. I hope today is a good day.Today is a school day for me. 11 student days left - the kids are getting harder and harder to motivate. Janey did not have any gastrointestinal issues from eating whatever she scrounged from the trash can.Have a greyt day all.
Good morning to all ♥All is quiet at our nest - I need to see the wingersizing - and would love to catch one up on the stump. Hoping the cams are doing well as I don't get to watch for a long period of time. The sunshine is blinding me and it feels so good! It doesn't seem like May is almost over. Memorial day is on it's way.Be sure to catch some fresh air today --- xoxoxoxoxo
Good morning! Two sleeping eaglets in the nest.74 and cloudy! Going to church this morn to work in the garden. Have some weeding todo as well as new plants to put in. I have Lantana in the garden and I think most of it has drowned in all our rain. The garden is in a fence enclosed area and when it rains it becomes a pool. Hold the water nicely! Ugh!Dentist went right to work on my tooth. Have a temporary crown and will have a new crown in two weeks. Really like my dentist. Thank goodness! He accused my hygienist of planting a bomb last week while cleaning. She came in after hearing she was accused! They are all so nice!More pictures of the fox in our yard last night. Think he is here after moles. He is a much neater digger than an armadillo! Wondering where he lives!Drum roll please......30 pounds! So excited! I am just trying to maintain but loosing! I think I am doing well with portion size and a 30 minute "walk" each day!Caladiums are starting to come up in the gardens. Looking good!Sandi, Laurel has the rest of this week and then out at noon for four days next week. Boys just have three days next week. She is so ready! Funny, but I had school dreams last night! Remember them well too. Interesting!Time to get moving. Have a great day!
Good Morning Eagle BudsLooks like NO Moisture falling at the nest Yeah maybe a dry day for the two
JO did you see the picture of I think Shamrock trying to get to the stump yesterday The camera was having such issues buffering but I did get a capture on the still of it
just looked down at all my scribble and notes as I sit here and I need to get my butt back out and go to the water company to cancel my reclaimed water. Can't seem to remember when I am out and about since I just got back in and didn't think of it. CRS LOL 78° out now a nice spring day Dew points down in the 60's which is what is making us feel marvelous
fish delivery and a big sneeze Love hearing them sneeze
Today was a really HOT one! I did get out and I am so thankful a great breeze was blowing.Dr appointment - CT next Tues - Need lots of prayers ♥I am now ready to get these street clothes off and get comfy!Have a great relaxing evening ! Yepper Judy I saw that stumping failure!Sent you a FB pm - Good night for now xoxoxoxoxo
good Tuesday afternoon to one and all. I was up and about early this morning. Yesterday evening, Tom and I went to Lowes and purchased 12 large (2 cu feet each) bags of soil and one 50 lb bag of manure. I ran out of time, daylight, etc last night. So first thing this morning, about 7:30 I was putting the soil into the big tub and have my garden planted now. I piddled about the back yard, to include vacuuming the pool, etc for a bit.Went to my grand childrens' award ceremony at their school today. Good grief, I had on the calendar to do something with them today and did not list WHAT we were doing....I would have dressed up a bit more had I remembered. I thought I was watching Lorelei for some reason....duh. but none the less, it was great seeing them get their awards.Amelia was chosen as student of the year (out of all students that attend there) for this year! She received a really neat EAGLE statue. They are the Andrew Jackson Eagles. :)I have run errands and now have dinner cooking. I hope to get a few more things done today before it is over and done with.Chelsea (oldest) didn't mention the conversation yesterday, etc. In fact, she was in a bright and chipper mood. The only mention of upcoming events that have sparked the most recent nonsense was Michael's birthday, which is next week (all three of my children have birthday in the next 3 weeks). There was some snarky comment made and I just met it head on and let it go.The rest of the day, thankfully was great til I got home to the teenager, who is...sigh...the teenager. Back to work tomorrow. I've had 7 consecutive days off, so I am ready ready ready to get back to it.SANDI: so glad Janey did not have any ill effects from scarfing down tasty garbage. lol. JUDYE: yes, sometimes you wonder with kids how much to say. sometimes I think making them sit nose to nose like when they were children would be a good idea....lol.LOLLY: you are melting away to nothing!!!!! i'm sure you will even out soon.congrats!Hope everyone has a lovely evening! :) hugs and love to all
Good evening,Watching DWTS right now. Allie Cat has been very active today. She keeps jumping off the mantle and going behind the TV. If I try to stop her, she just does it faster, meowing defiantly. Then she went up on the kitchen counter and knocked a large jar of cat treats into the water bowl. It landed upside down and all of the treats were floating. This morning, she got into my bathroom and attacked a roll of toilet paper. Such a mess.
Hoping everyone has had a good day. SED.
Good morning. I can see Shamrock and Clover now. Night Cam was kinda dark this morning. Have a nice day. Take care all.
Goodorming my eagle friends. 1 standing, 1 lying down at the nest. Sunny in Shepherdstown. Sunny in Bethany Beach too - yay!!!Shirley, gotta love an active kittie, despite the messes, right? When we had a cat (before we found out that both Kevin and Denny are allergic), I never was able to adjust to opening the freezer door and having a paw tap me on the top of my head as I reached in for something. Having always been a dog person, even growing up, I was completely unaccustomed to animals being that high.Lolly, I am envious of Laurel. Still, even though the kids in our district have 10 days left, I only have 5. I can now count my working days on one hand! :)Crate training updateafter 3 weeks. Fewer accidents on the floor, no more in the crates. I have given up thinking the wiener dogs will ever be housebroken at their ages. But rather than keeping them in crates for the rest of their lives, I ordered an exercise pen from amazon.com. It arrives tomorrow. The plan is to connect the 2 crates, side by side, with their beds in them and remove the doors so they can go in and out as they please. The 2 open ends of the pen will be attached to the fronts of the crates so they have a small area outside of their crates to move around in. Initially it will be very small, like a 4'X4' square. If their bathroom habits are good, then I'll make it bigger. There will be no pee pads put down because I don't want them to think it's OK to go to the bathroom in the house at all. We'll see what happens.My "naked nails" are doing ok. They don't look great but my cuticles aren't red and itchy anymore. Tennis for me at 9am and then I think it will be a kayaking afternoon.Have a greyt day all.
Good morning eagle buds
Good morning eagle watchers. Viewed the nest for an hour or so last evening. One in center of nest and other one upright on the left side. The upright one was occasionally jumping and flapping vigorously. Since it appeared to be windy, I was concerned it would go flying--I use that term loosely--over the side of the nestYesterday I went in search of a flat king sized sheet. I only went to a couple of stores, but one saleslady said most places only sell sets. I just want one to cover the terribly outdated floral print couch in the living room. I should just replace the couch, but it is a hide a bed that is needed in this small house. Also the couch is in excellent condition, I just don't like the print. I haven't seen any slip overs online that are to my liking. Oh well.Need to get ready for a Staples run in the other direction from yesterday. If we have the energy after other shopping I may check Macy's.I don't remember if I mentioned this earlier, but after my three weeks of eating 95%vegan, I gained 2 pounds. LOL. Must have been that cheese on the pizza!Hope all are having a sunny day.
Slip covers, not slip overs. Auto correct and not proofreading got me again.
Good morning,Lynne, perhaps you can get sheets online. I have found the same problem with buying pillowcases. I like to have extra ones, but found that the nice ones in department stores only come in sets with the sheets, so I have been buying pillowcases online.
Two eaglets enjoying the sunshine this morning. Lovely day in Shepherdstown.
Good morning to all - another very warm day!Hoping you all have special hot dog/hamburger plans for Memorial Day Just got an invite from youngest son and d-i-l that they would bring the picnic to me.I am waiting for oldest daughter to arrive - I told her I had been hungry for Sloppy Joe's so that will be lunch! I may need to go on Vegan - my weight is getting pretty low. Lynne - have you looked for actual slip covers? I have seen beautiful throws for covering furniture - Hope you find something pleasing to your eyes!Sandi - good luck with your wiener doggies. You have some very good ideas! Have fun at tennis.Have a good day xoxoxoxoxo
Nice to see your nails and cuticles are recovering, Sandi.
I have bought slipcovers from this company and liked them.
Good morning! Auto correct attacks me all the time! Such is life! I am on a roll! Down 31 lbs this Morning! Laurel and I weigh the same only she is 2 inches taller! My goal is to weigh less! Giving her a hard time but very thankful I have effluenced her to lose.Today grossssssserie store then outside I go! Tomorrow we go to Denton. A little concerned as possible severe weather. Do not want hail damage on my car!Yesterday evening was fun. The Mississippi Kites really entertained us. Saw one in the top of a tree. Then It started circling around. Heard another and upon searching for it...there were two sitting close to the nest. Also, on the ground under the nest are many little white feathers.Jack sprayed our pecan trees yesterday. Hoping for a great crop this year!🌹🌹🌹🌹Jo, many prayers for you!!🌹🌹🌹🌹Still planning a Sept trip to New England and a WV stop on the way home in October. Will let you know our dates as we get closer to the trip! I want to see as many of you as can gather for a meal!I am off to start my day!
Good Afternoon Eagle Buds!!!Our birds of a feather are sure sticking together in between some good stretches with those fine wings!Had good days with Eileen. She came at just the right time as my hips decided to flare up with bursitis. Trying to manage two dogs with me using a Rollator was not going to be easy. Much improved now. She's back home in Grand Rapids, but her handiwork is a lovely reminder of her presence. She gave a beautiful Spring look to the deck for me to enjoy. She took care of the dog and people needs without a flaw. I miss her! Now Julie et al are home after enjoying the most wonderful vacation ever. Ireland rocks!Prayers to emphasis needs expressed by JO and TORI, while asking God's richest blessings abide on abide on all Momserw, Dadsters, KIdsters and Petsters.All four family members at the nest. Big fish for the youngunw' to work on!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
LYNNE1 WMT sells individual sheetsJust got home I see a fish is being eating and feed Love the squealing
also WMT sells single opillow cases and also slip covers .Just saying LOL
KAY so sorry about the bursitis. So happy she came in the nick of time Someone is watching over you I guess.
Went thrift shopping got a globe for Jordyn and bunch of half price cloths for her now need to go get out of the truck BBL
from CROWE8 UPDATE: E8’s condition has been upgraded to fair. E8 is now routinely standing and using the right injured leg, but still won’t perch and spends a lot of time lying down. E8 is bright and alert and eating a diet of semi-soft fish fillets and meat. The eaglet requires assistance during feedings but has been slowly eating on its own. Blood work abnormalities have resolved and are back to normal.Thank you for everyone's continued support and donations. We will have another update this Friday.
Thanks for the link Shirley. I checked out that website the other day. It is always nice to hear from a satisfied customer when ordering online. They almost have what I want if they would fit correctly. We'll see. In the meantime I'll check out WM as JudyE suggested for a flat sheet. I didn't think of there as I usually buy linens at a department store. And in my opinion, department stores aren't what they used to be.Had a geothermal good lunch at Panera. Oh my, a geothermal lunch. I caught the autocorrect this time. It was supposed to say another good lunch. LOLAlso got a nice dish garden for the front porch, more flowers, etc. after Memorial Day. May put in a tomato plant or two then also.
Had me for a second LYNNE1 with a geothermal lunch. I love the cheddar broccoli soup the best and ONLY the tomato basil bread for my sandwich
I always keep forgetting to go down in the morning there I sure want to buy a loaf of the tomato basil (have them slice it) and share it with Angie Maybe I will do that in the am Need to make note LOL
I wish Panera were closer. Takes 40 minutes to get there. Rumor has it that a new one will go in at the outlet mall expansion that is 5 miles down the highway..I hope!
Good evening -0 just checking in before I sign off for the dayGood to see all of youLolly - OCT - WV - Yipee!Kay - prayers for your comfort! Happy you have help now !Lynne - I often go to Panera's BUT I've never yet had a geothermal lunch! lolJudy - thanks for bringing E8's report over. Everyone have a pleasant evening.. and a peaceful night's rest xoxoxoxo
sad news at one of the nest They think it may be poisoning this is from one of the eagle pages 9:15pm CT ~ Decorah North Nest Update- A quick note from Amy: We have two eagle experts, including a veterinarian, monitoring the eagles privately tonight. Thanks for all of your good wishes and prayers for the eagle family. They are much appreciated.RRP Executive Director, John Howe, sadly announces that it appears DN2 has passed. RRP closed the live camera view some time ago to spare viewers additional heartache, but privately monitoring the camera, DN2 has not been observed to be breathing for several hours.We do know that DN1 is active, alert and was playing with sticks and nest fluff. Mom North is standing, flapping her wings, and looking like she may be recovering a bit. Dad has been observed off on the distant perch branch.RRP is continuing to monitor the situation, and it is now dark in Decorah. RRP is also networking with other agencies and we will keep you posted as we keep a close eye on The North’s. We will also do our best to try and figure out the cause of today’s events to the best of our ability with other experts.We have no other information at this time, and would are not able to address any other questions except for what is stated in this update. We sincerely appreciate all your kind thoughts, positive energy and prayers for the North Nest family."""I wonder if they will go in the nest to get the eaglet?
He was spotted eating a mouse earlier so sad
I could say goodmorning LOL 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"
good morning to one and all. another busy week. getting back into the swing of things. metro schools are out. grand daughter will be here every other week, starting today. I wish I could say Olivia and Amelia will be company for each other; but Olivia is 15 (tomorrow, she is 15 tomorrow!) and thus cannot be bothered with the younger set....tom will be home today and tomorrow to clean his school bus. pool weather is upon us. :) hope everyone has a lovely day!
Good Morning Eagle Buds
Here is the latest report on the Decorah nest "Raptor Resource Project Mom is on the nest and appears to be recovering. Dad is perched nearby. DN1 is still alive and healthy. We are talking with various permitting agencies and determining the best course of action under the circumstances.""""
Check out Google
Where is SANDI today last mention was tennis and kayaking afternoon. She hasn't missed a gm greeting in a while Hope all is OK also JERRY as well as everyone else Just JANET and I have been on today I guess maybe busy with LIFE LOL heading out for lunch and going back to the thrift store to buy the sandals I saw yesterday Shamrock and Clover are both standing looking down at the world at 11
Good morning! Woke unto others rain, but thunder. Woke upJack and told him I was heading out to mow. I mowed the areas where water stands, the. He came out and did a little more. I got only a tad damp!Off now to prepare dinner for tonight. Making spicy meatballs to take to Laurel's.Gotta get busy! Have a great day!
Did not check what I typed or was auto corrected. Woke up to no rain but thunder!
Goodorming my eagle friends. Sorry that I forgot to check in first thing this morning. I have been to physical therapy - today was my last day! I am officially retired from PT! Then I went to my nail salon for a "test." Since my naked nails have done so well this week, aside from looking ugly, I had acrylic put on one nail on my right hand to see what happens. I had gel put on one nail of the other hand. If I'm going to have a reaction to the acrylic, it will happen by tomorrow and I'll know for sure that I can never have acrylic on my nails again, and I'll switch to gel. If I have a reaction to the gel AND the acrylic, then I will just be very sad. Fingers crossed.It's another beautiful warm, sunny day. This afternoon, I am dog sitting another greyhound. If the dogs get along, I'll probably start doing this one day a week.Kay, I hope your hip feels better today.Jo, prayers for strength and healing continue for you.Lynne1, you can buy individual sheets from jcpenney.com and also from amazon.com.Have a greyt day all.
1247 Shamrock made it to the STUMP oh no they are growing so fast
Am I seeing things, or do we just have ONEeaglet in the nest?
LYNNE1 they are side by side now but one did go to the stump earlier
I see two now. They were so close toge her my quick check was misleading. Got a little worried-------
Good Dinner time to all ! I confess that I was here early am hours and then granddaughter came to visit until the noon hour. Well - I had a good morning and alazy afternoon.I have all my flags out front and a new large one on the house - The other one had faded out so a new one was purchased.The kids have planned to come over Sunday for a picnic - all food brought in! Yippee!My appetite is increasing - just not my weight yet! I need protein so they say!But I love carbs - lolImpossible to think May is finished - wishing a marvelous JUNE to all.
Robyn's request for Tori who is down in the hospital ---Hey everyone, can you send Tori some positive energies? We need to get her number on the transplant list higher and she needs the gift of life ASAP. Her co2's are slightly elevated which means her lungs are not working as well as they should.
Judy - your captures on FB of our nest are fantasticSo happy to see the ones where they make it up onto the stumpAlso the one with wings spread wide is breathtaking........ Thanks
Wishing all of you to have a pleasant eveningSED and AOPY tonight ♥
Jo, glad your appetite is back and a family picnic is on your agenda. My mouth is watering. :)Congratulations on hitting the 30 lbs lost mark, Lolly!!! Way to go, girl!Last week we sent a message through the realtor asking the current owners of the house we're buying if they wanted to sell some things ... yes the do! They will leave all the pool house furniture, hoses and hose reels all situated perfectly around the yard, the white table, chairs and two barstools in the kitchen ( love the table and they match the cupboards), plus the tv's which are already mounted on the walls, a really nice love seat and sofa downstairs in the finished basement (I'm so excited to have a couch that has recliners in it!), and a few other things I can't remember right now. I'm so excited!My mom called last night and my dad has some soft tissue calcifications "masses" on his pelvis and in his liver. They're easily diagnosed and categorized by a radiologist with a CT scan, but they didn't tell them what type they were, so he has an appt with a specialist in a few weeks. Of course, they could have told them what kind and they had brain freeze after hearing the first sentence.Kay, what's up with your hip?
Howdeeeeeee! We are home from Denton. No traffic problems and we beat the storms. Raining now, lots of thunder!Glad we mowed this morning!Jazz concert wa fun. Had a surprise. Joseph played a solo in the middle of one Number! Wow! So proud of him. He tries out for Jazz band again next week. Hopefully he will make Lab band 1 but Lab band 2 is also awesome. That is the band he is I this year. Then there is 3, but he is above that band.Jacob has decided to leave the cello and orchestra. He is changing over to band and has chosen the saxophone. That is what I played in band.Ok, time for the pillows. Going to open up the house as temp has dropped to 67. Nite all! SED!
Goodorming my eagle friends.What a night/early morning with Janey. Will explain this evening when I have time.Have a greyt day all.
Good morning Lolly and Sandi. I see Shamrock and Clover hanging out in nest. Hope everyone has a good Memorial Day Weekend. I work late shift today and early tomorrow. We will be short handed until Wednesday, so I may work Monday. Just want to thank whomever put forth the effort to correct the Live Cam buffering issue. I am extra happen because this should be my first full eagle viewing season. Everyone take care. Sandi - I'll watch for your story.
GoodMorning Eagle BudsAdult just left looks like a food drop on got it and other watching OH NO SANDI will look for you story laterJordyn will be spending the night with me tonight Carl has plans for Angie a surprise
Both eagle now are eating together AWWW so sweet
Last evening after gym I went to check out two other cell towers over where Angie lives and did get to see the eagle but also got to see two hawks juvies got some pictures and a short video of them being pestered by a mockingbird OH I love the hawk scream or call they do so coool
Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!So good to see Clover and Shamrock as they prepare to fledge. Now eating well on their own and it looks like branching should soon begin! I love this pair!LORI, the left hip is giving me a bit of trouble--bursitis---easing up nicely with exercise and Ibuprohen. Guess the bursa sacs were insulted by additional dog walking. Mainly what's wrong is Old Age!☺ Happy to hear about the furniture deal on the "new" house! Things are falling together nicely for you gals!Thanks to all who've been concerned and praying---that helps a lot!I'm off to enroll in an exercise/swimming program just up the street a couple of blocks. I should have done this ages ago.Prayers for JO, TORI and all others in need!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Good morning! Stormed all night and so far this morning. Thankfully just rain, no hail, no strong wind, no tornado! 65 and I may have to dress more warmly. Lol. Cool sitting here in shorts.Kay.....the swimming excercise sounds great. We just continue our "walking" with the DVD.I think today I may do a little Lollypaloozing and then just read. Now doesn't that sound like a plan? Have not done that in a long time.Lori....sounds like the new house and move are shaping up. We will need pictures, you know!Jo......you are sounding so much better. Prayers continue!Making plans for Monday. Laurel and the boys will be here and hopefully Michael and Zach. Have a great day!
They are getting such good air now
Here is a blog on the nest where the eagle died of poision interesting read they went in the tree and retrieved the eaglet to see what it was
Good late morning to all Oh Janey - whatever did you do??????????? Don't try to blame it on the wieners or Lucy! I have company again today - my dil - we are talking up a storm! Today is my P.T. - I think I am meeting my goals - just need to get a steady balance on my own.I love looking at our nest! They are usually sitting side by side or at opposite ends of the nest. Next week it will be touch and go ♥Enjoy your afternoon - Kay sure hope your hip gets better! Prayers for Tori (ONCE AGAIN - I WAS HERE EARLY AND FORGOT TO PUBLISH)Dinner is over - all is well - have a great evening and rest of the weekend xoxoxoxo
Janey story, starting with a little background. The house across the street from us is lived in by a lady named Christine. The landlord/owner of the house, Michael, lives 4 doors farther down the same street.So...at 4am, Janey started whining and pacing. I could hear her stomach/intestines making very loud squeaking noises from across the room. I figured she had an upset stomach and either needed to poop or puke. So I put on my bathrobe and slippers and took her outside in the pitch dark.When she got out in the yard, she walked from tree to tree eating leaves from the little plants at the base of the trees. I knew she was looking for grass to eat. I put her leash on her and walked her across the street to the side of Christine's house where there is some grass. As Janey was grazing, we eventually ended up alongside the garage of the house. When we did, the outside motion detector light on the front of the garage came on and I could see that there were about 5 large tables of stuff that Michael had set up because he and his wife were going to have a yard sale in the driveway of Christine's house.I looked up at the house and saw that the windows to Christine's bedroom were open and the blinds were raised halfway and her bedroom is right above the garage, so I felt certain that the outside light coming on would wake her up. I quickly hustled Janey back across the street and into the house and, as I did, I could hear Christine in the house talking. I figured she was on the phone to either Michael and his wife or to the police to report that someone was outside her house attempting to steal yard sale stuff.When I got back inside with Janey (who never did throw up or poop), I looked out our front window and could see outside lights on at Michael's house and Michael standing outside on his deck with a flashlight, shining it toward Christine's house. I waited about 15 minutes to see if the police were going to show up - they didn't - and then went back to bed but, by then, it was 5am and the alarm was set for 5:30am so I never got back to sleep. Before I left for school, I wrote a note to Michael explaining what happened and apologizing for him being awakened at an ungodly hour and stuck it on the windshield of his truck.Needless to say, it was a very long day at school!On another note, I now have 10 beautiful, long, painted gel nails. I am happy!And now, I am headed for bed. Goodnight all.
Good morning. Nest is dark now. Sandi - enjoyed your story. All's well that ends well. Glad your fingers nails are OK now. Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the holiday weekend. Take care all.
Goodorming my eagle friends. Another sunny day at the nest and here in Bethany Beach.The tourists have arrived here! Will be using my bike as much as possible this weekend.Tennis meeting this morning at 8:30 and then I guess I should get to the beach and enjoy the sun while I can. Looks like a tropical storm is headed up the east coast!Have a greyt day all.
Good morning.May we all remember and celebrate those who have crossed the veil.May we know gratitude that once upon a fleeting moment we all crossed paths.Memorial Day Weekend.Blessed Be
good Saturday morning to one and to all. reading back, it sounds as if everyone had an okay week. it just kind of got away from me.....yesterday was Olivia's 15th birthday. before we "turn around twice" she will be hitting 18....good grief how in the world does time go so fast? I will post the facebook links for those who might like to look and are not on facebook. (next post)its been a busy back to work week. LORI: your plan to keep some of the items that go with the house is wonderful. everyone wins!SANDI: what an adventure....wow. I finally have Dax convinced it is not necessary to go out every single night about 2 am. he's finally "sleeping thru the night"....for that I am thankful!KAY: hope you get to feeling better!I hope everyone has a wonderful day! hugs to all!
well.....can someone remind me how to get a link to share the pix from facebook? I cannot remember. please and thank you
Howdeeeee! Plans around here change so fast. Michael and Zach came here and spent the night after going to the Rangers game. They left about 11 this morning. Had a good time with Zach. We had quality cuddle time! He does like to be given hugs!Laurel and family are coming tomorrow instead of Monday. They have school Tuesday and so they would rather come here Sunday. Cannot get my kids together!! Michael is not cooperative. Grrrrr!I worked in the yard a little after he left but not a whole lot. Jack had a back spasm earlier this week and he is taking it easy.Have a great weekend!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Good evening,Beautiful summer day here. I bowled this morning with Jan and Doris. Val is having foot problems and Julie is visiting family. We had a nice lunch at Ruby Tuesday. Kathryn and Hunter are off on adventures.
Two beautiful young eagles in the nest. They really look almost ready to go. Yes, there was just a short flight across the nest. That was quite a story, Sandi. It's a good thing your neighbor does not shoot first and ask questions later.
Fish delivery. Much excitement.
One eaglet getting fed. Other one flew across the nest and landed on them to no avail.
23*The number and symbol above are compliments of Cheeto. He decided to stroll across my keyboard.
Adult eating fish. Eaglets watching.
Took me awhile to post the message above. Having some network problems.
Good evening to all ♥Judy - looks like the IR Night light is onShirley you are so right about Sandi's neighbor! Would not have been a funny thing to happen!Picnic is still on for tomorrow afternoon - Anxious to see everyone I think Glo made it though a wicked storm earlier..... Hope our rain holds off until after the holiday and everyone has made it home safely.Have a good evening and a restful night xoxoxoxo
Goodorming my eagle friends. Two eaglets standing at opposite edges of the nest. It looks sunny in Shepherdstown. Not so much here.Kay, I hope your hip is feeling better each day - water exercise sounds like wonderful therapy for it!Jo, I hope today is a good day for you - my prayers continue.Shirley, it never even occurred to me that someone might point a gun at me when I was skulking around in the dark. I'm glad I live in a small town where things like that just don't happen.Janey and I were awake and outside at 4am again this morning. Her diarrhea is no better and so far this morning, she has not peed; it concerns me that she may be getting dehydrated. I hope we don't end up with an emergency vet visit today or tomorrow.Tennis for me at 9am. The clouds will start leaking some time this afternoon or evening and then continue to leak through the night and tomorrow.Have a greyt day all.
Good morning,Hope Janey has peed by now, Sandi. Luna, who has never had accidents in the house until recently, peed in the dining room again last night. She is having trouble getting around and last night she was restless and went downstairs. I should have followed her immediately. By the time I went to check on her, it was already too late. Fortunately, I have a carpet cleaner.
Our young eagles are sitting in the nest watching for a parent to arrive with food. There was a bit of squealing. They do seem to be calmer than some previous eaglets. The first one I watched was Hidey. Hidey was not so calm to put it mildly.
Sounds like your family has been having plenty of together time, Lolly, even if you cannot get all of them together at the same time. Susan leaves for Ireland tomorrow. She is traveling with her boyfriend, Vince. It does sound like things are getting serious between them. I told her that I do want to see more of him so I can get to know him better.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORIWISHING YOU A SPECIAL DAY AND A FANTASTIC YEAR AHEAD ♥
SANDI so happy you got priddy nails again Did it turn out that you are allergic to the acrylic that they applied? and the Janie story WOW and hope she gets better without a trip to the VETany news on TORI?????

Thank you, Jo! I'm looking forward to a fun day! Sandi, you probably already know this, but give her only small amounts of food at a time until she goes without diarrhea. Boiled chicken and rice is best - bland and easily digestible. Try some banana. 100% pure pumpkin (not the pie filling) adds bulk and works for constipation and diarrhea in dogs. Some say a raw bone helps. I learned a lot with Gordy who hads a thickened intestine and gets diarrhea with everything except the most broken down of proteins/hydrolyzed food. Shirley, you think it could be a UTI? That happened to us with Priscilla - she started just squatting on the floor for what we thought was no reason. She was back to normal a day after the vet gave her antibiotics.
Good morning to all ♥I see Mr & Mrs Red out at the feeders - Mr Red took a peanut - they have always eaten the sunflower seeds - surprised meIt's another bright sunny hot day - it calls for thundershowers early evening. Glad my family will be picnicking indoors! Great month for me with b-days and anniversaries. About 8 of them lined up!Shirley - Sounds as though Susan has met her man! You're right about learning to know him better especially if he is coming into the family! Sandi - I'm not sure about these 4am trips - lol - Here is hoping they cleaned out your canal and you can get that kayak in the water!Well oatmeal time for me --- hoping that all of you enjoy your day - Memorial Day is a very important day to take time to reflect on our Freedom.xoxoxsoxoxo
good morning and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO LORISANDI: hope Janey is doing better. and I'm glad you have your nails back. That's one thing I do miss, even though my own nails were never really great, I miss having nails. I have to keep mine super short and trimmed with the cuticles filed as well.....I typically do a manicure 2x a week....and no polish. Sometimes if I have a special event or long weekend i'll put fake ones on just to enjoy but keeping them ON is the problem for me.I had a very busy day yesterday. The pool Is clean; corn planted; everything watered; lolly-paloozed my RV so when we get ready to head out in a couple of weeks all I should have to do is add clothes, food, people and dogs. I am loving the new mini vac I purchased. It is a dirt devil and it comes apart to do corners and such. Perfect size and good suction. yeah yeah yeah!My sacred datura (moon plants) bloomed last night for the first time this season. The lightening bugs are out as well. I was very happy to see all of that.We are heading to REN FEST in a bit. Hot day ahead, I see pool time in my future!Hugs, love, and healing energies for all in need!
Good morning Sandi, Shirley, Lori, Jo, Judy and Janet. Happy Birthday Lori - hope you have a good celebration. Sandi - sorry to hear Janey is having some problems. Looks like nest is quiet now. Off today and then another 6 day week next week. Can't complain much - extra funds will help with the medical bills. Just wanted to say Rhonda is doing much better lately. Seems like new medicines and everyone's prayers here have helped. Enjoy today and Memorial Day tomorrow. Take care.
Hadn't thought of a UTI, Lori. Will mention it to Kathryn. However, I think it is most likely that Luna is just having a hard time getting around and doesn't want to move until it is too late to ask out. I saw a cardinal grab a peanut a couple of days ago, too, Jo. It surprised me as well. Usually it it the blue jays and titmice that go for the peanuts . . . and the squirrels, of course. We have some starlings (grackles, maybe?) hanging around. They go for the peanuts as well. They seem to like us, as they have built some nests and raised young in our yard.
Vince is interesting, Jo. He has purchased a large house in a nice neighborhood, but it is definitely a bachelor pad. I think I've mentioned the weightlifting equipment in the living room. Susan says he is confused about her disapproval of his choice of living room furniture. She is working on him, but there are some challenges ahead. Also, together, they have seven cats. Nice that he likes cats, but wow. He has three and she has four. He's currently working on his PhD in some field I've forgotten. It is very specific and quite unusual. However, he must be doing okay if he can buy a nice house in Northern VA.
I think the trip to Ireland is in some way related to Vince's job.
Happy birthday, Lori. I am having difficulty loading your FB Timeline, so I will wish you a happy birthday here. :)
Nice to know that Rhonda is doing better, Jerry.
Great news JERRY on her doing betterSHIRLEY nothing wrong with a couple of extra cats LOL but I must agree exercise equipment in the living room needs to go Should be in bedroom or spare room or garage a food drop was just a bit ago Love seeing these two get along so great Its parenting great parents LOL I hear thunder 85° out now to early for the heat of the day sea breeze meet land breeze storms I would think
Good Afternoon, Eagle Buds!!!Clover and Shamrock are taking in the view and looking good!LORI, have a HAPPY, HAPPY DAY!!! The house is quite the present!Enjoyed reading about your Sats and so far today, friends!Last night I greeted and cashiered at the Contra Dance, so you know my hip is better. The weather looks a little iffy, but I hope to go to the Concert in the Park Series this evening. The featured band is all harmonica and I've not see them before. My dad was a professional grade harmonacat so I love the instrument.Have a fine holiday, all!Prayers for all in need!!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Good afternoon! Watching the TCU vs WV baseball game! Go Frogs! Expecting Fritz family in a little over an hour.Usually see Fritz family once a week or every two weeks, just depends on activities. Michael on the other hand can go months before we see him and Zach and he is just an hour away!🎈🎈🎈🎈Happy Birthday, Lori!🎈🎈🎈🎈. It is so great to have you back posting on here! Have a fabulous day!Up to 90, guess summer is here!
We have some serious flying back and forth going on A pro now
Good early evening - all the family has left for now! Had wonderful time and the picnic food was great.I read on Sandi's FB about Janey going to the Vet - Sandi said things will be ok! Thank goodness!I am ready to put my feet up - may not come back so........Good day to all xoxoxoxoxo
Typing with my left hand. Had a really fun afternoon and evening with Laurel and boys.. Laurel drives a mini van with a sliding door. Jack and Jacob were messing around and the door was slammed closed on my little finger. Did not break the skin, did not hurt badly. Very quickly tried to remove ring but could not. Jack cut it off. It was terribly deformed. Have had ice on my finger. It is swollen and a little purple. Will se how it is tomorrow.Nite all! SED!
Goodorming my eagle friends. I see 2 eaglets in the nest. It looks dry in Shepherdstown. It is very wet here. The rain was just starting when I got up with the dogs at 6am but now it's very steady and expected to last all day long. The roads will be a mess throughout the day with tourists heading home. Fortunately yesterday ended up being dry so the holiday weekend wasn't a total wash-out for visitors.Lolly, OUCH! Just reading your description of what happened to your finger sounds painful!Jo, loved the Elliot photos on Facebook. The ocean water is FREEZING!!! I can't believe he was smiling while getting his feet wet!I did end up at the vet's office with Janey yesterday. She was given subcutaneous fluids (she looked like she had a giant tumor on each side of her abdomen but the fluid has all dissipated), an injection to stop the spasms in her stomach/intestines, special food for today, and oral meds for the next 5 days. She did pee when I took her outside this morning - a good sign - and she ate OK. Fingers crossed that she's on the upswing.Wiener dog crate re-training update - since Friday afternoon, an exercise pen has been set up around both crates in the sun room. We have been leaving the crate doors open to allow Bella and Jenni a little running around room without giving them free run of the entire sun room. I have not put pee pads down because the whole idea of the crates has been to get them to understand that all peeing and pooping is done outside. Obviously they DON'T understand - we have had 3 messes on the floor in 3 days (2 liquid and 1 solid). I'm disappointed but really not surprised. With regard to longstanding bathroom habits, you really can't teach old dogs new tricks. But the current situation is one I can live with for the rest of their lives. The dogs have a little area to move around in and they can get to their water bowl. If they have an accident, it's on tile. I can get to the sliding glass door and deck where the grill is, to my desk where I keep my laptop, and to the laundry room, which is adjacent to the sun room, without having to step over or open any gates. It is what it is.Breakfast was just delivered at the nest and claimed by one eaglet. The parent took off quickly. I could tell that both kids could see the parent coming because they were facing the same way and squeaking long before I saw an adult land with a fish.Have a greyt day all.
Good morning! Funny thing, Sandi, there has been no pain. Well, there was pain trying to take my ring off. When I squeeze the finger or try to move it no pain. It is slightly swollen this morn, slightly purple. Only way I can describe it is my finger feels tired, achy.More rain during the night. No working in the yard today so very wet and muddy. Think it will be a reading day! I can live with that!
Good Memorial Day Afternoon, Eagle Buds!!!SANDI, sounds like you've taken the best path toward living with "it is what it is". The poor ol' girls aren't able to comprehend just what their humans would like to have happen, I guess. Hope Janey rebounds quickly!LOLLY, may that achy finger heal quickly--I cringe at what it must feel like to have car door slammed on one's hand.The eaglets are a rest, side by side, in their favorite spot by the big branch. Sunny and no rain.Same here, with temp headed for upper 80's. Seth will join me for dinner/the evening/overnight, breakfast and lunch.... We're making up for missing last Sat.. He'll bring his smart phone and it's Ireland trip pictures for our entertainment.JO, so glad and not surprised that yesterday's family gathering was a huge success! Prayers continue for you, the beloved matriarch of a fine, fine family!Have a good day everyone! Good bless our troops and may all who lost their lives serving in the military RIP.Prayers for all Momsters, Dadsters, Kidsters and Petsters in need!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Goodness Lolly! That ring probably saved your finger! OUCH!Thanks for the birthday wishes. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ It was a great day relaxing, had somefun and dinner at Sweetwater Tavern, which has got to the the loudest restaurant ever just because it's so big, but the free key lime birthday desert is so worth it. :) Posted this pic on Facebook today. KAY, since you're not on fb, I'll try to find a way to do a link. Hope you had a great time at the harmonica concert. Was it good?EagleFlagPicI haven't used that in a very long time so I hope it works. It was fun to see those old pics again! Hoping Janey is better, Sandi. Forgive me if I spelled her name wrong. I forget "y" or "ie".
Hello to allI have had a good quiet day - left over picnic goodies for dinnerI think it is too hot at the nest to leave! Good pics on FB of the entire family in the nest and some "air time" ! Sorry the live feed isn't always what we hope it to be.Glad your birthday was great, Lori - Dessert looks yummyKay - enjoy your Seth time! ♥Lolly, Here's hoping the purple/swollen little finger gets back to normal!Calling it a day for the computer - talk with you all tomorrow. xoxoxoxoxo
Good afternoon everyone and a respectful Memorial Day!It seems that the majority of folks ignore this holiday and only celebrate it as the beginning of summer. Our servicemen are not always treated as they so rightfully deserve.Kay, can't wait to hear about Seth's travels. Know he had a wonderful time. Sandi, so glad Janey is on the mend. Also sounds like you have come up with a long term plan with the porch pups! I admire your positive attitude under frustrating circumstances.The nest is surrounded by such lush green! The eaglets really stand out. Won't be long before they are gone. Every season seems to be shorter and shorter.Jo, loved the pics of Elliot in the surf. Such a precious child. Always keeping you close.Sad that the loon found no mate this year. Miss that cam. Yet Pot Plant Owl found a mate so maybe next year there will be owlets!Hope everyone is well. Lolly sorry about your finger. That could have been so much worse!Take care.
a game of leap frog is going on so funny
my delete I had said still is stuck 801 But it came back on just now
Getting on to say good night! Has been a quiet day after Michael and Zach being here Friday nite and Sat morn and then the Fritz here yesterday. Did a little closet cleaning, a little reading, and minor yard work.Really....finger has not hurt even when it happened. Yes, I think my mangled ring saved the pinkie. And like Laurel said, look on the good side....I did not break a nail! Lol. Still slightly purple, still swollen and therefore stiff. If I drank a cup of tea, my pinkie would look just right! It sorta sticks out. I said I hope it does not stay that way but Jack assures me he will still love me.😜Night all! See you tomorrow!
Good morning. I see Shamrock and Clover are active this morning. Looks like it's going to be a nice day around here. Enjoy it and take care.
Goodorming my eagle friends on this last day of May. It's a work day for me, my first of two for this week.It rained here for about 15 straight hours - ugghh! The sun should return today - it would be nice to see it for an extended period of time.Have a greyt day all.
Good Morning Eagle BudsNest looks so pretty and peaceful both are now just standing looking around MOVIN JIM...。☆。*。☆。....★。＼｜／。★. Happy Birthday! ....★。／｜＼。★....。☆。*。☆
