They were close enough that I could see the white feathers change as their heads moved back and forth looking around! Hopefully not at my chickens!!! Their wings and tail feathers were fully extended for max lift as they just circled effortlessly! Wings like my back door! just beautiful!!!


They prefer fish, but if there aren't any rivers or lakes near you, Dave, they were probably looking at your chickens.

I was discussing them with a coworker and he said around this time a lot of young eagles are driven out of the parents areas to find their own. They have been seen congregating over Keene, NH this week. I need to research this a bit as I've only seen a few in my lifetime. My interest has been peaked today!

I just saw two Bald Eagles flying circles over the house! By the time I went to get camera they were gone! Amazing!

Neat! I don't believe I've ever seen one in the wild, only in zoos (depressing!).

OK . . . so I spent my student-loan-payment money to get my kids winter coats, and my two daughters walked out into the 16-degree (F) temps today wearing only sweatshirts.  :(   

I  hope their school has a fire drill!

Yeah, sure!  Then you'd worry about her being out in the cold without a zillion layers, a full-head cover, and hand and foot warmers.   ;D

It's all good! When we got a big storm we used to run around the house barefoot with our pants rolled up to our knees! The last one in won, sort of! Kids are immune.

Oh my! Did your feet hurt as they warmed up? If I don't wear two pairs of gloves when I shovel and my hands get too cold it's incredibly painful when I get inside.

Right.  BMR in kids is much higher.

So true! Kids are also much more willing to just jump into a chilly swimming pool, it seems. I used to be able to do that.

OK, I had to Google that, Barry -- basal metabolic rate, correct? Had a painful reminder of slowing metabolism when I was weighed at my doctor's appointment yesterday. Oh, for the days when I could just shovel in food and never gain an ounce!   ;)

So you had an encounter with the dreaded Dr.s scale!
So many people (women) complained at the one at our Dr.s they had to replace it with a new electronic one. It still came out the same!

You should see what goes on at Weight Watchers meetings Dave! There's a line at the bathroom door before there's a line to weigh in and shoes and jewelry come off. Some of the girls even wore the exact same clothes each time. If they could have I swear some of them would have weighed in naked!

I had a lot of stupid fun when I was a kid too. I never ran through the snow barefoot but when my cousin and I got together we were a force to be reckoned with!

Trying to get off every ounce! My mom went to TOPS every week for years> Not that she was really over weight but they all went to friendly's for a burger  and ice cream after!

UGH, yes. Not a good idea (or maybe it IS a good idea) a couple of days before Thanksgiving!
