Man oh man everything in that other thread went crazy!
These are Bob's eagles Carol.
I am still here Carol .....
Me too..LOL...How about "Soar like an Eagle for Faith Justice and Freedom!?"
Did you read all of this? THESE ARE BOBS EAGLES .... THEY ARE YOUR EAGLES CAROL .....
The grandkids always ask for me to show them 'Alaska Bob's' thread when they come over. I sent those threads to Leanna so the kids could see them anytime they like.
She remembered them and picked these two making us an avatar from them!
She can change anything on them. Colour, print etc. but Michael had to take a picture of them so I could save it into JPG.
There is another one that Sherry liked as well ....

FSM....Former Silent Majority
Soar like an Eagle for......
How about something like that?
Did you read the part where I said those are your eagles Carol????
I can get her to fool around with the print tomorrow if you like the eagles as an avatar.
OK...What do you think of the US flag as the main backdrop of the picture and then the Eagle one with the words super imposed over top of the flag in kind of an oval shape!? Maybe have the flag in kind of lightened color or fogged look to it...do you know what I mean?
I keep forgetting posting here is not like chatting. WE HAVE TO HIT REFRESH LOL!!!
Yep but avatars are actually pictures that have words imposed on them.
Doing all of that would take someone with some computer savy to do for us and would probably cost a lot of money.
She took Bobs pictures and added the text to them.
I think it is between the eagles and the flag at the link with Faith, Justice and freedom on it.
Yes Cam..I read the part about the Eagle being the pictures of Bob's..that's cool that she came up with that idea of the Eagles! Seeing as how the American Eagle is our countries bird that represents freedom. So glad the kids enjoy looking at the pictures!! Dang..I still have a bunch of pictures to add on yet too but just aven't had the time lately. We think Bob maybe found out part of where our bandwidth usage was going. There was an Adobe something or other that was continuously upgrading so it was going all the time which was using bandwidth so he took the whole dang thing off the computer!
MY VOTE IS FOR THE EAGLES .......
Looking good! Sorry I haven't been on,was taking a break from the computer.Spending time on video games on my playstation 2 & 3,also doing a little yard work too.
Maui voted for the flag I think .....
What's your weather like there Ancil? Pouring rain here in BC ....
I sure wish Care 2 had kept their chat line here .....
I tried to click on that link Cam and it wouldn't come in..actually it came into something totally different. I know a friend who does this kind of web page stuff.....let me contact her to see if she would have the time or want to try something like that. She is fantastic at it but she now works also so I will have to see if she can. I can visualise what I want and can see it and I think it would look really nice so I will let you know what she says!
Sorry Carol I never got your post in time LOL!
Adobe is a reader program I think. Michael would know about that I think. On .... Off .... best I can do. Leanna showed me how to upload photos to the site when she was here the other night and it was easy to do! Goes right along with cut and paste for sure!
I like the eagles and I like your words Carol. She has added them to that link if it works.
OK..Love them...My favorite ones are the second FSM one and the red FSM Eagle one and the brown FSM Eagle one. Actually I like all of them..LOL
I like both eagles and I like the ones with the red white and blue FSM logo on them.
I really like your soar line there as well .... great text. Will Bob be all right with us using them as our logo?

BTW if you return to that page hit the refresh button on your browser .... Leanna just uploaded the changes to the message that you wanted done and sometimes the browser will need refreshing for you to see the changes.
It amazes me every time I look at those eagles. One of them is looking right at us and you can see the shadows surrounding their wings!
Cam..Bob will be fine with using the Eagles..I think he will be quite impressed! They really do look right at you especially when he stands out on the deck and they fly over!! When you can see the coloration in their wings that is a good picture!! I clicked on the link of the ones that Leanna did..she did a dang good job! I sent off a message to my frined to see if she would be willling to do a web page if she has time and would like to. So will let you know when she writes back.
Thanks Cam on the words! Somehow looking at the Eagles soaring along those words just seem to fit with it!!
No problem Carol. She thought as we have collected international members keeping the American colours and using the eagles says it all eh????
I think they are excellent and all credit to Bob and to Leanna - I hope he will like the fact we might use them.
Will see how the votes come out. I have asked Michael to take a picture of all those avatars on that page and we will run another thread asking for votes.
I am voting for either eagle with the red white and blue FSM on them.
We have thousands of eagles here as well Carol. Crikey I went to the dump the other day and there is a little road you can follow when you come out and there must have been twenty of them hanging on the trees! British Columbia is reknown for our eagle population but I sure couldn't take a picture like Bob does.
I don't even know how to use a dang camera very well!
Cam.I know there are Eagles all over the US and do you know where the main Eagle Observatory is for the whole US!? Wabasha, MN where I went to school! Bob was looking for some info about a bird that was seen here several years ago and he thought it was maybe a certain kind of bird...can't remember which one anyway he sent the picture to them and they said it was an immature bald Eagle that was trying to swim out of the lake. It landed and got all wet and couldn't take off!! The Eagles and the US flag do fit together well!!
Hi Cam! It's clear,about 37 degrees right now,going to be sunny with a high of 65,very nice!!!!
These are amazing pics.....you guys are confusing the hell out of me.....I like them all.....this is not simple anymore......but I agree....go with the Eagle....that way Bob can get credit for this!!!! Thank you Leanna
I know! I love Bob's eagles. I wish there was a way of putting one of those eagles on the flag with the childs praying hands instead of the head of the eagle. It just touched me as our children being our future, believing in our freedom, and having hope and faith, and what we want to leave to them as a legacy. You know -Blessed are the children...Having faith as a child has faith, and believing in our future and what we leave behind.

I am still working on having something like that made Sherry...that is if the gal will do it!
Okay so here is the link with the two eagles .....
A huge amount of credit has to go to my buddy Jess - Blue Angel because he has been with me all the way on this as well and I was glad for the help. Furniture gets dang heavy!
Thanks as well to Sherry and Carol who have taken a huge interest in this project and helping to get the group 'motto' right.
FSM red - white - and blue stands for America where this group took root.
Faith stands for what we personally beleive in.
Justice stands for justice around the world.
Freedom stands for exactly what it says no matter where we live.
Canada, England (hiya Ray!), Israel and America .... stand for all of those and I do know we have members in this group from around the world that read us on a regular basis.
The eagle has always been symbolic in America for flying high and free and unrestrained so I actually think it represent everything we are all trying to do in our lives no matter where we are.
I want to explain again that the eagle pictures were taken by my grandkids favorite photographer 'Alaska Bob!! .... Carol's husband and it appears we have permission to use it so no copyright infringements apply to those on the outside looking for a reason to target us for this. Bob Dreezdan OWNS these pictures and we have his permission to use it.
Between the group and with help from Sherry and Carol we worked out our own 'motto' so we own that collectively.
Now, we have two great avatars that really represent what we as the FORMER SILENT MAJORITY set out to do. Stand up, speak out and never sit down again.

Michael, could you please take webshots of those avatars and set one of them up on our group page replacing the old FSM avatar?
Wow, those avitars are outstanding Cam. Love the first one, haven't seen the other thread. Haven't been on the computer.
Have a Blessed Weekend guys!
Both of Bob's Eagles have the WOW factor. I'd be thrilled and honored to use either one. ~ Alice
