Decorah Eagles, 2013-05-13 , 6.00am, Butterfly, head bonk, fresh fish. A little wingercizing, a little stick placement, a lot of flying in and out, and fish for breakfast.

Decorah Eagles, 2013-05-13 , 5.00pm, Junior construction worker. The eaglets are getting ready for life outside the nest with a litte wingercizing, a little hopping, a little preening, and some construction work. Supper is served at around 6 minutes, with the whole family getting together for a meal.

I love the contrast between their beautiful feathered wings and stumpy little bodies and tails. Gary Bortolotti noted that eagles don't grow evenly - some parts reach full size before others, as a few shots in this video make very clear.

Decorah Eagles, 2013-05-14 , 5.00pm, Oriole, dropped stick, busy eagleport. The whole family is in the nest, along with a oriole perching on a stick at the left side of the nest. Everyone eats. The scene changes. The wind is really blowing, but it doesn't appear to worry the family at all. The scene changes again and the wind dies down.

In between bouts of eaglet activity, the eaglets spend time standing, preening, and watching. At 7:04, Mom flies in with a big stick, which she drops. The next few minutes are filled with fly-ins and outs and, at 9:25, a little nest-arranging.

I've talked before about my belief that animals and people share some emotions, but have others they don't share. I wonder how it feels when the urge to fly begins to scratch?

Decorah Eagles, 2013-05-13 , 11.00am, Exercising
The eaglets are wingercizing! We see flapping and some small hops. A parent comes into feed, which only takes a few minutes. The eaglets seem more interested in flapping than anything else. We see one of the other nest tenants when a little bird flies in at 3:08. A brief hop - or are my eyes tricking me?- happens at 4:20. At 6:12, we see an eaglet stand up very tall. We get frantic flapping at around 7:30.

They will be gone soon. They grow so fast. lol

13 funny photos of people who don't care what you think

Ever get to a point in life where you just don't give a sh*t anymore? These people certainly have. These liberated folks know it's tough to keep up with appearances all the time and have responded by not even trying. When presented with any "Should I..." question (ex: "Should I get dressed before I go to Starbucks?" "Should I wait to read Playboy?" "Should I put a shirt on before I leave the house?" etc.), they always know the answer: "Bah, screw it." And to be honest, while their actions may not be admirable, we kind of love their attitude. Scroll through the pics above for more funny examples of people who don't care what you think.

There are several cute one on there.

I am off to work. Volunteered to work my day off, but it is only for 5 hours. Off tomorrow. Wish I could stay home and take a nap. That rain that is starting to come down more steady makes me want to go sleep listening to it. lol

Hope you all have a great evening.:)

You are not that old AW, and I hope you don't think I was implying you were. I am just not at the stay at home stage you are and you are not that far ahead of me. I know you are a good looking man and with that stetson hat those ladies couldn't resist you either. Any one of them would be lucky to have time with you. You know how your email fan club feels about you. Right, lala?
Bet that pot pie was better than KFC could offer. Hope you got to mow today before the rain set in. It has just sprinkled here off and on.
I am not a stay at home person except when I want to be. I get out several times each week. I just find much satisfaction in getting out and helping others that need things from time to time. Especially things that I can do and they cannot. I have just been to all the parties that I would ever need and prefer one-on-one time over group situations.

No rain here at all and I got the grass mowed.

Been raining here off and on all day. Got most of the yard push mowed before my back went out. Will be getting more rain later.
Stay dry!

Got the lawn cut. My neighbor weedeated. Wouldn't accept pay. Said the Lord would bless him. Well, Partner and I will make it up to him soon. I really hope he know I appreciate the kindness and thoughtfulness of his help.
@ AW glad you got your cutting finished as well. Cloudy evening. Your homemade pot pie sounds scrumptious. Your Ladies apparently appreciate you as well;) It's nice to hear that your chicks have been hatching. Those eggs can get expensive. I spend around $25 a month or more on brown, organic eggs. Good luck on your little hatchlings :)
My thoughts are with those without homes in Texas and the six families of those who lost their lives. May peace and love surround you.
@ AB, I agree about the Gentleman, a veteran and retired, whose daughter has taken his home. After being employed at a convalescent center, nothing is unbelievable to me. Where did respect, dignity and human kindness go? I loved my patients dearly. But to do this to one's Daddy is vile.
Pleasant evening to All.

I mow my neighbors lawn every time I do mine. I'd never take a dime for it.

But, I will take that peach cobbler...:)

Elderly couple just turned 60 some and now lives on social security, almost half going to "son?"

"Never took a dime from the elderly family" that we helped for years.In fact we gave them everything we could and still provided for our own family and still been trying to clean up the mess and mortgage they left behind three years later.

Lack of responsibility is not necessarily limited by one's age. I too am 60 something and don't consider myself "elderly", just older and still doing what I can for those that are much older. I have a lady friend that drives a pickup truck with a manual transmission. Her age.. over 80.

You're Only As Old As You Act

(An elderly woman well into her 70s comes through the check-out line with a single bottle of wine. I start to scan the bottle through.)

Customer:“Wait! Aren’t you going to check my ID?”

Me:“Er, no, ma’am, I don’t think it’s really necessary…”

Customer:“Well, that’s no good! You should check all ID if you’re selling alcohol.”

Me:“Well, okay. May I see your ID, please?”

(She hands over an ID card that is obviously fake.)

Me:“…ma’am, this card says you’re seventeen.”

Customer:“Oh, dear! You've caught me! I’m much too young to be buying this! It’s a good thing you were checking IDs. I'd better just go now!*skips out the door*

Me:“…”

Well Roaming, I am a day behind you on my mowing and the rain. Slow drizzle made it to Central Ky. this morning. I am glad I got my mowing finished yesterday and my corn and beans can use the rain. Have a good day everyone.

Partner broken down outside Lexington.Radiator overheated. Can't get truck fixed until Monday. When it rain, it pours when you least expect it. Count our Blessings and go on I reckon. They just don't get the debts paid. Love him though, he tries to keep it rolling. This makes the second time in almost two years of having radiator problems. Hopefully, he'll get that much needed sleep. Up& down all the time anymore.
You all have a nice day. Smell the rain in the air. It must be coming our way.We got the rainbow of goodness in life that makes up for a bag of gold;)

Just confirmed. Partner's in Georgetown. Broke down this morning in heavy traffic. It's terrible to have to sit until Monday. Had to turn over his load to another driver. Good day to all.
