Glacier National Park, in NW Montana, has a webcam trained on an osprey nest. The platform the nest sits on was provided by the local utility company as a means for the osprey to nest while keeping them off the poles with electric wires attached. The male from last years' breeding pair that occupied the webcam nest died as a result of coming in contact with a pole that had electric lines. However, a few days ago, an osprey returned to the nest; hopefully, in a few weeks we'll be able to see hatchlings, as we did in 2010!

Ylee, thank you so much for the Mother's Day rose. Love the view of the Tetons. One of my favorite places. Have a wonderful week.

Good morning Ylee. Glad to see that things are a bit better then they were. Be grateful you and your wife have each other, right now that is all that matters. Time will heal the pain and trust will have to be rebuilt. Its tough when those we always thought were with us, turn out to be disappointments. Have faith dear one. You are not alone. God walks with you and when you need Him, He will provide comfort.

Hi, Pros, Sandi! Thanks for your support!

Pros, It's a beautiful day in Riva; then why does the weathersticker say 17F and snow? ;-)

See, Sandi, I acknoledged your post before the new blog is up, lol!

I think I have my cam lineup figured out! Now comes the task of getting them in a blog!

I know exactly what will happen - it's happened before!

I will leave a comment here and you will set up a new blog and it will never be seen.... so I won't bother! hehehe


On second thoughts, I must say hello before I go!
Glad things are a tad easier today, I can feel your pain in the words you write:(

It is bad enough when things happen to us but it is worse when the victim is our spouse or child.

I see that the sun is about to rise at Riva del Garda, the sky and water at the Outer Harbor are beautifully clear, mom is sitting patiently, ....

Take care Ylee.

Good evening! Personally, things are a hair better than they were yesterday; at this stage, I'll take all the better I can get! :)

Our weathersticker says Lewisport is getting light sprinkles, which is most curious, as it is presently clear here!

I'm going to skip visiting the blogs until I get the new blog done; maybe I can get done at a reasonable hour this time!

Hi, Pros! My natural first instinct with people is to give them the benefit of a doubt and trust them until proven otherwise. In this case, it was a hunch I've had for a while now, but unfortunately, my wife was blindsided when the ones in question decided to show their true colors.

Hi, Alley! Hope you get your sleep pattern lined out! Transitioning from dayshift to nights has always been a problem for me, as it's hard for me to sleep past 3PM!

Sleep well!

Hi, GG, I saw the exhaust port of Roxie as your avatar before I read about it in your blog(Had to check it out before I came here, even though I didn't leave a comment! I will after I get the new blog done!).

I know there's good people wherever you go, but I don't have any support from anyone at home except my wife and my mom. The good people here at WU have been a Godsend to me, as I have tried to be a good friend to about everyone here on the blogs.

To all of you, I thank you from the bottom of my heart! :)

Hi Ylee, sorry to hear your shoulders are getting broadend with the load on them. You have friends in the electron world. Sometimes the support we can't see is the some of the purest.
I have some funny pictures to post and will see if the gatekeepers will accept them as portraits.

Hang in there buddy.

Sorry Ylee, did not get back to chat at 4:30 AM..Did not get to sleep until after I fed the kitties at 3:45 AM...Pulled another one of those "can't get to sleep" nights until I finally was exhausted enough to fall into a deep coma...LOL. Still I got up at 7 for bathroom run then back to sleep until 9 AM. Will try not to lay down today if possible so I can get to bed at a reasonable time tonite and no coffee after 7 PM. Gonna be dragging the old butt around today...

Rest well dear one. You deserve it.

Ylee, I have discovered this the hard way: 'I'll be fine, Pros! Life is a long, strange trip sometimes. If you ever want to know what's in a person's heart, just wait. Their true self will make themselves known.'

So very true, and so hurtful. Stay well and remember that not everyone turns out to be a disappointing element in our lives.

Finding new cams isn't happening tonight; as soon as I start going through the cams, I doze off! Maybe tomorrow night will be better!

Six days off? That sounds cool, Trauma! Only two hours to go!

Shouting and screaming does not help, Sandi! Sometimes you just have to grind it out, one day at a time! Milos sounds good, but it wouldn't be much fun if there were issues at home unresolved!

Gosh, sorry to hear you've had "issues" to deal with. Life can be so darned frustrating (or whatever other word you want to substitute).
I'm not usually up at this time, but I've been working and time got away from me - glad I popped by.

I did have to laugh at Alley and her kitty-feeding. I guess I'm not the only one who has a furball ready to bounce at 4 a.m. or so. I'd better get to bed so she can wake me up in four hours!

Have a good night - hope everything at work stays nice and calm. ;)

Hi, Reno! Glad to see you made it back! Sorry the photo ops didn't pan out. :(
Hey, at least you got her something! :)

Alley, sometimes it seems like the whole world is against me and my wife, even those we cherish the most! Sometimes things just gotta happen, I guess!

Thanks, Alley! See you in a little bit!

Good evening Ylee. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers that things work out well for you. We all are challenged at times with what life throws at us but know you have lots of folks looking out for you all.

Catch you again at 4:30 AM when I get up to feed the kitties....

Good evening. Been a rough 12 hours since I left for home. I won't elaborate, but I have very limited energy for blogging. Gamma losing Harley didn't help, either. :(

I may feel better later, so I won't rule out the possibility of putting up a new blog tonight, but don't hold your breath. I have two nights of OT in my regular job here in the Shack, so I'll have plenty of time to get it done.

Hi, Tony, I didn't know it was that hot already on the prairie! Got your shorts out of storage yet?

GG, I know all too well the quality components that go into the construction of manufactured housing. My aunt's water heater leaked until the floor underneath it rotted out!

Be careful crawling under the house; lots of creepy crawlies you don't want to mess with may be living under there, so make sure you chuck a couple or three bombs under there to insure a quality dead zone.

Cal with the warmer weather early this year, the honeysuckl are almost done blooming, having started about a month ago! Still smells great, though!

Hi Ylee! Have the honeysuckle bloomed yet?

My son and dil in Alaska got 6 inches of snow for Mother's Day! They weren't real happy, LOL!!! My son forgets that when we lived in the mountains snow on Mother's day happened more often then not!

Good Morning, looks to be another busy weekend. Am thinking maybe June we will finish painting the kitchen. Do have some edging tape up.

Noticed the T&P valve is leaking on the water heater. *Sigh* it is such a whip to access the water heater. There is a panel on the outside of the house. It needs to be caulked in and caulked over the screws to prevent rot.

Major pain in the wazzoo to cut through the caulk, unscrew 25 screws and pop the panel off. Hope it's just a bad T&P. Looks to be intermittant so could be a pressure thing. Not sure where I can install an expansion tank....or it could be a thermostat....

After replacing the first water heater we ran hoses to outside the house. One for the T&P and one for the rubber enclosure we made around the new water heater to drain where we can see it.

Also found the repairs to the underbelly liner the repair guy did had all come down. Looking forward to a weekend of spe-lunking under the house.

Good morning Ylee.
Though the BBQ didn't go as I wanted the short time over the coals added a bit of flavor. Next time I won't be so cheap and use real charcoal. :)
Enjoy the day while we bake here on the prairie.

Hi, Alley! If you want to post the Ospey cam on your blog, that's fine with me! It's not like I'm the webcam mafia, lol!

There's another cam I may post on your blog, maybe this one, I haven't made up my mind yet!

I've found several cams for the new blog, but I won't have time to post the whole thing today. Hopefully I'll be able to wrap things up tomorrow night!

Have a great day dear one.

I haven't made up my mind yet, Pros; if I don't keep it in the main part with the rest of the cams, I may post it in comment #1. It's usuallu a few weeks before the fledglings are big enough to be picked up by the cam. We'll see; but either way, I won't forget the cam!

Good evening! A cloudy and cool Mother's Day greeted us today, but that did not deter any of the moms in the family from having a good day!

Work begins in earnest on the new blog; I think I have a sure thing lined out, but I have to check the cam reliabilty first, as it is a new cam on WU!

Thank you, Pros and Alley! Hope your Mother's day was a good one!

Hi, Tony! Good to see you out on the blogs again!

ycd, I'm with you; any forecast longer than a couple of days in advance is just a tease!

Good luck on the mantle!

It's a little cool up there for fishing for my taste, Alley! I'll bet that water's still cold, and any wind off of it will be chilly!

Supposed to get some rain tonight and tomorrow; hopefully it'll clear out by evening, so I can fix the Mrs. a Mother's Day steak!

You don't have to thank me, gamma; you're good company, and that's all that matters! :)

When I was in my 20's I thought 60 hrs. a week was a lot; now I'm in my late 40s and average 65 hours a week! Granted, the work isn't that physical, but I still have to put my time in!

Enjoy your red!

Hi Ylee, I think our little momma osprey is sitting now. I don't see the male around as much but he does pop in time to time, the boys are getting ready for a day of fishing on Mille Lac. Looks like a good day for it, lucky buggers. Wish I was there fishing too. Waiting to see what that line of storms is going to do out of MI. Looks like they may all remain north of me. My lad just finished mowing the backyard so if I don't get out today I can do it Monday. Tomorrow is our rainy day...LOL Guess I better get back to work too. Have fun...

Morning Ylee: Garda is back to normal = quiet but half an hour ago there was a tour bus and a couple of cars coming down the hill. Guess I should try to load the tools and wood for the mantle piece job. Looked at our local weather forecast just now and 7 days show sunshine.
We only believe forecasts when we see them confirmed though.

Good morning! Yesterday, a major snafu at work t ied me up for the last four hours of my shift, so I wasn't able to do much here! :( Hopefully, today will be better!

Cool but humid stsrt to the day, temps starting out in the 50s, but working their way up to 80 with an increasing chance of rain as the day goes on.

Cams are looking well this morning; didn't get much of a chance to do any scouting, aside fom Denali, which I'm pleased to announce the Sled Dog Puppy cam will soon be back online for the summer and fall! :)

Hi, sp! Glad too see you out on the blogs! Hopefully, I'll be able to spend more time online this weekend as well! :)

Hi, Sandi! A bicycle on the Garda cam? Going downhill would be a breeze there, but going back up it would be really tough, at least it would be on me, lol!

Hi, GG! Milos looks fine today; I can even see a jet contrail in the sky!

Hi, Alley! I wonder if our little osprey mama is incubating her eggs? She's been hunkered down and not moving much lately!

Good morning Ylee. Overcast with a chance of rain today. Temps still in the mid 70s. No real complaints. Hope to get out and cut the front lawn before it starts to rain as my lad is coming to do the backyard later.

Hope you have a great day. I see the little boat did not come back yet on Milos but the Everest cam is great this morning. Other than watching the grass grow on the other cams or the water roll up on the beach, not much else going on. Our little osprey is snuggled down on her nest...still chilly there.
