I like LizzieB's suggestion of Moxie for #2.  The dictionary says, "The ability to face difficulty with spirit and courage".  Also synonyms: determination, stamina, tenacity.  He certainly has all of these.

#1  question  Big Bopper  rolleyes2  BB for short.   mhihi
......and my uncle had a summer cottage on Moxie Lake in Maine!  wink2

Big Bopper (BB) .....Hermit, that is hilarious!  laughinghard..... Love it!

Am I allowed a second chance for eaglet No.1?

idea Having seen her in action, I think she is much more like one of these rather than graceful & elegant Maina Geilgud!   biggergrin2

Don't forget to add LizzieB's suggestion of Bossy Boots for #1.

Although she was joking with Cruella, I think it fits.   mhihi

Thanks everyone, we'll do a vote soon when I get a chance to set up a poll... all of these are suggestions and I have been adding them to the first post. Have I missed any? We have many more suggestions for No. 1 than for No. 2.

I've never participated in a poll before......is it set up so that each person only gets ONE vote for each eaglet?
When does the poll close?

Hopefully it's not too complicated. Just one vote for each eaglet's name.. or I can make it 2 if everyone prefers.. It ends when we want it to - I didn't set a limit... so we can give it a few days. Once you vote, then you will be allowed to see the other votes, but not who voted. You can't change your vote once made.

Just my opinion, but it seems more fair to allow only one vote per person, per eaglet.
.....or have some already voted twice?
....also thinking it would be good to set an end date so that everyone knows ahead of time. shrug

Sherri .. I could be wrong but I think each person is only allowed 1 vote. Is that right Laura?

One vote per person per eaglet? How long do you want it to stay open for? They're growing fast! Wednesday?

Makes no difference to me.....just thought it might be better to post a date.
