New thread.


WVJerry said...

Thanks for New Thread Steve.

WVJerry said...

Was coming on wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July weekend. Not much else to report here. Also hoping for a quick recovery of the flood victims in southeastern part of West Virginia. Just terrible what happened. Good morning Jo - I'm guessing your deck flowers are doing well and hopefully bringing you some hummingbirds to enjoy. Take care all.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Need to back and read. Jack is already out working on repairs to landscaping. I need to get busy, too!

Lolly said...

Okay, read back and now I am in tears! Hoda, what a grand gesture! Know that was very hard but what a thrill for her.

And, with that, I am off to do major kitchen cleaning!

Have a great day! Prayers for your friend, Hoda. Know she has a smile on her face!

Good morning eagle buds

HODA So happy she was pleased and that you all didn't do her in

Good to here from you JERRY

now if only others would check in.

JO where are u
We miss you Elliot avatar on here

Sandi said...

Thanks Steve for a new thread and thanks Jerry for the call over.

Jo, I hope today is a good day for you.

Hoda, what a wonderful thing you and your friends did for your dying friend!

Just checking the comment box. Headed out on the boat to take the kids tubing. Bye!

Kay said...

Good Afternoon Eagle Buds!!!

Thanks to STEVE and JERRY for the new thread and call over!

Another month almost gone...time flies....

HODA, we needed a tissue warning! That is the most beautiful story I've heard in a long time. Prayers that your friend can now experience the comfort that comes from such an achievement. "It takes a village!"

JUDY, thanks for the cam info. I couldn't get it yesterday and made an assumption I shouldn't have made.

SANDI, tubing, what fun!

This is a gorgeous day here with comfortable temp in the 70's. Hope the rest of you are enjoying the same!

JO, we've got you back with our powerful Momster prayers! Same for you, TORI!

Prayers, too, for all in need of a healing touch.

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Everyone,

Golly, guess it's been a week since I was here! Sorry about that! It's been hot and humid, making it difficult to function normally. Happy to say it's only supposed to be 83 degrees here today, although the humidity is 50%. Supposed to be cooler for the weekend, though. Thank God for small favors!

Oh--a BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Carol Anne! Hope your day was very special!

Hoda, I'm glad the Dragon boat trip for your friend was a success. God bless her! Good thing I had some Kleenex handy!

I'm trying to figure out how to get some extra water to our back yard grass--or lack of it! We had one of those expanding hoses out back, but when Ken went to use it, the durn thing exploded! Guess a trip to Home Depot is warranted. Meanwhile I'll have to carry gallon bottles of water out there on the days we can't use our sprinklers. About the only thing that's still green is weeds of various varieties. The "grass" looks like straw now. No wonder, with the heat we've had here lately! At least our potted plants aren't looking too bad.

Well, just in case I don't make it back here for a few days, have a wonderful 4th of July weekend, everyone! Prayers are ongoing for everyone. I ♥ us!!

Hoda said...

Tomorrow is Canada Day.
So happy Canada Day to you all.
149 years tomorrow.
Next year for our 150 years we can all get into the National Parks for free!
All year long.

Happy 4th of July to one and all.
Stay safe and celebrate your awesomeness.

All is good here.

Kay said...

Good Red Friday Morning Eagle Buds!!!

O Canada, we congratulate you and our dear HODA. Good plan for next year!

There will be plenty of siss-boom-bah in these parts starting tonight and continuing through Monday night. I'll be watching multiple festivities from my recliner. Malcolm will be with me n' Penny Sat/Sun/Mon while his family celebrates the 4th and Seth's 22nd birthday.

May your holiday weekend be safe and glorious!!!

Prayers for all in need across Monsterland!!!

Good afternoon eagle buds

Wow oh wow yesterdays used school uniform kicked butt!
Almost $1200.00 was made
Almost all the shirts went
All the jackets and sweaters went
Decided next one we are reducing the shorts
Blow out sale of shorts 2 being there are so so many of them that aren't selling and I told them that I thought 5 was way to much for used shorts also most of them aren't the official uniform ones. Some like have Sears, Target tags in them. Now the shirts being they have the school logo embroidered on them may be worth it. The money goes for activities of the PTO for the kids

The pool party was nice last nite till 830
Just got back from taking Jordyn to Angie work
Jordyn spent the night being Angie and her are heading to a bff house near Miami till Mon.
Hope everyone has a great 4th

Lolly said...


Did not get on this morn. We headed out early to work in the yard. Worked hard for most of the day, but we are now in, showered, and took a nap. Not pleasant here, Kay...96 and headed to triple digits!馃槹

Our biggest jobs are about complete. Actually, think our big jobs are complete! All our rain this spring created a lot of mess to be repaired.

Our plans for the 4th include going to Laurel and Joey's for a meal. Joey is smoking meat, we are taking corn for corn on the cob. Also making ice cream. A traditional 4th!馃嚭馃嚫馃嚭馃嚫馃嚭馃嚫

Happy Canada day, Hoda!

Jo, wonder how you are doing. Hope you are enjoying your days!❤️ Prayers continue for you!

Hoda said...

What a magnificent Canada Day present.
I miss Jo so I decided to phone her!
Mr Ed answered the phone what a fine gentleman he is.
I asked him about Jo...
What a gift, what a magnificent gift.
She spone on the phone.
She is having password problems, she fatigues from typing, she reads us every day.
I told her we love her and pray for her all the time.
She said she loves us back.
I expressed my gratitude and appreciation and love for her inspiration and example and leadership.
With grace she said thank you very much.

Thank you Jo for reading the blog.
We are your tribe lady, we are your tribe.
Always keeping you in our prayers and sending you love and Light.


Happy fourth to everyone.
Let us do a card sending circle of love around our Mema Jo.

Honestly I can not say how happy I am to hear her voice.
She is being smart and saving her energy.
She fatigues and yet she knows of our love.

I came for the Eagles and stayed for the friendships I made.

Let's go cards, not too many consecutive calls...

grannyblt said...

Good evening eagle momsters. Hope all is well in eagle land.

Happy Canada Day to Hoda and all Canadians.馃嚚馃嚘

We are having a cool summer day. That is one advantage to living in PA. We can have those stinking hot humid summer days, but not for months on end.sorry about that Heat and humidity, Lolly.and Judy

I'll spend some of the holiday cat sitting for my neighbor's cats. They are the offspring of my cat Lizzie. They resemble her so much. The only problem is the lock on their door is very tricky. I always fill the self feeder to the top in case I can't get inside. The Borough has a fireworks display that is only a couple of blocks away and will be visible from my house. Last year the booms were so loud, my cats hid for hours.馃嚭馃嚫

Prayers continue for all needs spoken and unspoken.

NCSuzan said...

Happy Birthday, Margy! Hope you are having the best day ever!

Janet, Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Canada Day, Hoda! So happy you spoke with Jo. Am glad to hear that she is resting and conserving her energy.

Jo know that you are thought of often and missed. Keeping you in prayer for healing and strength.

Happy 4th to everyone. Please play safe.

NCSuzan said...

Just looked at my calendar again. Hmmmmmmm.....says July 1st but it also says Saturday. Don't know which is right, day or date. Better early than late i guess.

NCSuzan said...

And that is my Yahoo Momsters calendar.

Hoda said...

Happy Birthday Margy.
Missing you Judie.
It would be very nice to see you two ladies drop by every once in a while to say hello.
Good night,
God Bless us everyone.
Happy Fourth of July Weekend to you all.

Hoda said...

Long May She Wave.
God Bless America!

Hoda said...

God Bless America
Irving Berlin

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free.
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer:

God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home sweet home.

Sandi said...

Goodorming my eagle friends.

Hoda, thanks for sharing about your phone conversation with Jo. I'm sure that hearing your voice cheered her up.

Jo, I hope today is a good day for you.

It has been a busy week here - tennis, beach, blueberry picking. Tomorrow is the boat parade - our theme for the year is The Wizard of Oz. We'll be finalizing the details today after the beach and will spend tomorrow decorating the boat.

Janey was almost hit by an SUV on Thursday. She was on-leash and standing right beside me while I was stopped at the edge of the street, against the traffic as pedestrians are supposed to be, talking to a neighbor. Our roads are narrow and winding - no room for sidewalks, bike lanes, or pedestrian walkways. When people walk their dogs or push strollers, they have no choice but to walk at the edge of the road.

An SUV was approaching the corner to make a right turn and refused to move over to avoid Janey or me. When I looked to my right and realized that he wasn't going to move, I looked to my left at Janey and saw that her hind legs were farther into the street than I was. I very quickly yanked on her leash to move her and the passenger side of the Jeep came within 2 inches of her tail and back legs! 2 inches!! When I screamed at the guy, "You almost hit my dog!" he screamed back, "Then get out of the damn street!" What an awful scare!

When I got home, I immediately sent an email to the mayor, town council, town manager, and chief of police, as well as to the local papers. Our community has been asking for speed bumps and a 3-way stop sign at that corner and the town council members have been dragging their feet about getting things done. I also made a 2' X 4' sign that says, WARNING: My dog was almost hit on this corner! #watchout and stood it against a tree at the corner where the almost-accident happened. You can bet I will be attending next Friday's town council meeting with a prepared statement.

FYI, if you ever lose a fingernail, it's not as painful as you would expect it to be. Your nail beds aren't just soft, tender skin - they're tougher than you think. I know this because I have now lost 6 of my fingernails.

Have a greyt day all.

Kay said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!

It's a birthday morning for Seth the family is on their way toward a grand celebration for his birthday as well as our beloved Country's birthday!

Happy Birthday wishes to MARGY and JANET---let them eat cake---and lots of it!

SANDI, you go girl! Your activism is inspiring! Good to hear the nail beds are made of sturdy stuff.

HODA, you are such a good and thoughtful friend and neighbor. I love you tribute to the US of A!!! Thanks for calling JO. I'm sure she was glowing after your call---I know that feeling since I've been the recipient of one of your caring calls!

JO, it's grand to know you read "us" and we do appreciate your saving energy for the musts as you work on gathering strength. We love you much and hope you feel the aura of our prayers and thoughts.

Prayers for all in need, including our beloved Country on this birthday weekend and always.


Hoda said...

Kay! AKA Marie Antoinette! You be careful about " Let a Them Eat Cake!!!" For heaven's sake the last one who said so did not fare too well!!! My oh my oh my!!!
Happy that Seth is spending his special day with you.

Sandi how dreadful! That is a scare and a half about Jenny and the SUV! Good response on your part. Kudos. Nelso gets overly crowded with cars over the summer too! We do not have the infrastructure for it!
I knew nails were not painful. Sorry you lost six so far.
Pictures, I want to see pictures of the float. How is Miss Freyja spending the fourth?
Another awesome day here. Stocking up on vitamin D. YAY

Yes, it would be great to have an occasional hello from those that do not post. They are loved and missed!

Being really lazy after such a busy week. However, Jack just made a run to Lowes for more compost. Maybe I should get busy working! Hee hee

Oh, Sandi, that is really scary about Janey! We live on a dead end street. It is shaped like a Y. We are on the bottom part and cars go way too fast! I have screamed at a few! No leash law, dogs run loose, children ride bikes, people walk and jog. One of our dogs was hit and died. Though that time it was not for speeding. I had been across the street visiting. Rikki went with me. When we came back, she waited for a car to pass but did not see the car coming from the opposite direction. I blame myself! If I had a dog now, would not let it run loose.

Gotta get busy! Have a great day!

Hi Jo! Love you!馃尮❤️

grannyblt said...

Good afternoon all

Happy birthday to you Margy. Miss hearing your exploits.馃帀

And happy birthday to Janet as well馃帀

Heard all kinds of music and giggling last night. Whispers of walkers and decks. And I think some faux eagle feathers were involved.馃槣馃槣

JudyE said...

SANDI so sorry of the mishap. Maybe your community needs a move over law like in Fl
Move over for bikes and pedestrians. Most of the main roads have a bike lane here but many in communities don't soon when passing must go around wouldn't hurt to ask at the meeting

I think I am coming down with somethin . I slept super late and may just go back.

stronghunter said...

Good late evening.

Belated happy birthday wishes for our Margy. I miss her on the blog.

Also, belated Canada Day wishes for Hoda and all other Canadians.

Our neighborhood has a lot of enthusiastic celebrators. Explosions started a couple of days ago. Tonight was particularly noisy. Allie Cat went to the window and tried to see the source of all that noise. I wonder if she will be scared when the 4th comes. It gets really loud around here. I have invited my bowling buddies and my children. We should have fun.

stronghunter said...

Wow, Sandi. Go for it. I hate rude drivers.

Glad your fingers are not hurting.

stronghunter said...

Hello, Jo. :)

stronghunter said...

Julie, Doris, and I went to a different bowling alley today. Our usual one was very busy with a tournament and there were no lanes available. Lori, the went today was probably the one you saw from the interstate. Liberty Bowling. I had never been there before, but it was quite nice.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Happy 4th Eve!馃槃馃嚭馃嚫

Have read the paper and will be heading to church soon! Having horrendous hot days. In the evenings we get out, walk around the yard and then have to head in fast. I certainly dislike summer! Love Spring! Enjoy Fall! Tolerate winter. Lol

Have a great day! No big plans for today after church. Baking an apple pie to take to Laurel's. not tell her as it is a surprise!

Have a great day! 馃尮馃尮馃尮馃尮馃尮Good morning, Jo!馃尮馃尮馃尮馃尮馃尮

Hot hear. Last day at the beach house.
Looking forward to being at home. Hoping this is the last house sit this summer.

Love you Jo馃嚭馃嚫❤️馃嚭馃嚫馃弳馃嚭馃嚫❤️
The rest of you are not too bad either!!!!

Lori said...

Wow! I miss a week to do the move - still far from being unpacked - but there's sure a boatload of things happening here!

JO, I am so happy to hear you are up to reading the blog and enjoying it. You are in my prayers and happy thoughts everyday dear lady. ♥

SANDI, six fingernails! Holy spoon handles! I am so proud of your constructive response to Janey's near accident! You go girl. Love that sign at the site. Great idea!

LOLLY, I'm with you on the weather feelings, really do not like heat (especially sweating) at all!

LYNNE, hope you had fun with the grandcats. :)

KAY, are you getting all this rain we're supposed to have tomorrow, Monday?

I'm beat, but really wanted to check in and let you know that we finished the move in Tuesday night and now it's just a matter of unpacking - I am never moving again. lol

Happy Independence Day.

Lori said...


Can someone please email or Fb message me Jo's address?

Thank you!


Hoda said...

Happy Fourth of July.

Barbara said...

Did anyone else see the item on the news yesterday about an eagle caught in a tree by a rope tangled around its leg? I didn't catch where it was. Authorities were called but didn't do anything. A veteran who was a sharpshooter was passing by and just couldn't leave it (reportedly it was about 60 feet up) so he shot repeatedly at the branch until it broke off. Eagle was scooped up and taken to a rehab center and is expected to recover fully -- he was hungry and dehydrated. They showed him in his recovery cage and it was a juvie with a dark head. They specifically said it was a Bald Eagle. Hooray for the vet doing the right thing!

Hoda said...

Did not hear about that Barbara!!!
All the shooting must have scared that eagle!!! Not to mention the neighbours.
Yet I am glad he took action and that the eagle is being helped.
Survival rates for Juvies are not too high!!!

Lolly said...

Good morning!

Happy 4th!!!


Woke up to thunder and rain. Has stopped now, almost an inch. This is good, yard in certain areas was needing it!

We sat outside last night late. We enjoyed our neighbors fireworks! We were surrounded! Yay, glad it was their money and not ours going away in a flash! Big bucks, too! There was a breeze, so it was very pleasant! Sounded like a war zone!

Need to get busy with pie!

Have a great day!

Happy 4th! Hope your celebrations are safe and happy, filled with family and friends!

Barbara said...

I hope this comes up correctly for everyone -- the eagle was in Minnesota:


This is ABC News story.

Lori said...

Lolly, thank you so much for sending me JO's address! Card will go in the mail tomorrow.

Barbara, that eagle story is all over social media. I wonder if the eagle will be traumatized for life?

NatureNut said...

Must get on before the fireworks begin!
Momster Prayers and best wishes every day for our Leader Jo and all others who have been mentioned, such as Tori.
Love to all

Hoda said...

I hope the weather cooperates where you all are so you can enjoy your fireworks.
I also hope everyone keeps their pets indoors, so they would not run away.

Sandi said...

Goodorming my eagle friends. Cloudy here again this morning, just as it has been since Sunday. The parade in Bethany was a go yesterday but the fireworks were postponed until tonight. The sun is supposed to reappear tomorrow.

Judy, I hope you are feeling better. BTW, Delaware HAS a move-over law; the problem is that most of the people who are here in the summer aren't from Delaware and, even if they are, some don't want to share the road with people or cyclists. They figure they're the ones driving the vehicle, that gives them the right of way on the road.

Lori, congrats on getting moved in - it's all uphill from here as you get the house looking just the way you and Kate want it.

Jo, I hope today is a good day for you.

I am headed to Lowes and Home Depot bright and early this morning to buy a new compact refrigerator for the kitchen. Ours died and we really need it for drinks with the extra people in the house. Then I have a dentist appointment this afternoon.

Have a greyt day all.

Janet Neely said...

good morning to one and all .... Tuesday. today is Tuesday. (I must repeat that several times to remember!)

we are back to "normal" ..... my gal pals, nancy and chris have headed back to va beach. they were in TN just four days short of a full month. her son, Jaimie, is healing well, still a lot of restrictions from his surgery and will have to undergo an angioplasty in a couple of weeks....still, the pacemaker is a possibility. such heavy burdens for a 17 year old kiddo....

celebrated Nancy & Chris' 1st official wedding anniversary yesterday in addition to the 4th of July. They have been together 13 years........and last year could legally wed!

I had a couple of people over for a "chill and grill" yesterday. it was nice to visit, eat, and relax. The rain held off for the most part, til the evening.....but we need the rain so for that I am thankful. I am thankful for it all.

I hope everyone is well.

I am back to work yesterday. Late last week I came down with a sinus infection.... bah humbug. I am over that now and ready to rock on.

I hope every has a beautiful day. Light, love, healing and hugs for all!

Lynne2 said...

Good morning everyone!

Sandi, what a scare and I would be trembling in my boots if I were on the on the town council when you let loose on Friday.

Judy, glad the uniform sale was such a success!

Happy belated Birthdays to Margy and to Seth!

Janet, it's TUESDAY. LOL! I will have to keep that in mind as well! Glad Jaimie's healing well!

Barbara I saw the story of the eagle and the veteran. Pretty cool...I'm sure the eagle was quite upset by the noise of the shots but hopefully that will soon be forgotten.

It's been very peaceful around here since my FIL is still in GA and won't be home til next Sunday or Monday. Not looking forward to his return. Steve's mom came home Wed and we have been having movie nights and yummy dinners and nice conversations.

The fireworks here were going off in all directions all weekend. Needless to say that Daisy wasn't a happy camper. And you hear the booms 3 or 4 times as they echo off of the mountains. We watched 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi on Saturday and so on the night of the fourth it was the most noisy and I had to come inside because it truly sounded like a war zone and I was getting very upset. I am guilty of forgetting that besides pets, war veterans must have a very tough time with the fireworks as well. No wonder....

The town itself also had fireworks on Friday and we took chairs out to the front yard to watch. Just about 20 minutes into the show, rain started pouring down. Make that POURING DOWN!! We opened the garage and stood inside while the brave firework makers continued right to the grand finale! I felt so bad for all the people who were at the school grounds watching....especially those with kids. It happened SO fast and other than a few drops first, it went straight to deluge!

JudyE said...

Good morning eagle buds

Thought I would pop in
I either got Jordyn cold or my own
In my sinus
Haven't had a good night sleep until last night
I stopped taking the pills and switched to benedryl
I get adverse reaction of sleeplessness from as long as I can remember
I normally just end up using a nasal spray

JudyE said...

And neighbors have been celebrating for three days the 4th now and I am willing to bet again tonight

JudyE said...

Got to run and get more sicko supplies tissue and benadryl since I ran out and have used two boxes of tissue in three days

Lolly said...

Good morning! Had a great 4th, really enjoyed it!

On way home last night watched the sky to the west. An awesome display of lightening. Then received a warning on my phone about a severe storm headed towards us. Got home looked at radar and there it was headed right at us! I have never heard such thunder. It was a continuous roar. It scared me! However, just before going to bed, looking at the radar, it looked like it was separating and going north and south of us. We had major wind, branches on the ground this morning, but only 2 tenths of a inch of rain. Crazy!

Going to take it easy today. Yesterday was busy!

Lynne, so happy you have had a few days of peace!

Hello, Jo! Have a good day!

Kay said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!

Happy news re: serene moments for LYNNE2 and STEVE, LORI's in her "new" house, LOLLY's home made it through a roaring storm safely, JANET's friend Jaimie is healing well...

Wellness prayers for JO, TORI, JUDY and any others in need!!!

Time for me to go a-Krogering.
