Notes from the Birdhouse – Myrtle May Long, Long Gone

Posted May 7, 2013 By The Bird House

Oh the memories, the memories.  Myrtle May homely and white… what a gal.  She was always there for me.  If ever I had a spontaneous thought, she was right there to encourage me to go for it.  She was more than willing to ride out the storms that came and went.  She was there when I would break out in uncontrollable laughter.  She was there for me to lean on, to cry on.  When I found myself missing my grands she took me to see them.  She took me to take care of my son while he was in cancer treatment.  She carried me to my dad’s funeral.  She absolutely loved to go camping.  She was hardy and robust; she could pull a hill that made most men shiver.  I loved Myrtle May.

Notes from the Birdhouse – Just Punch It!

Posted April 23, 2013 By The Bird House

Okay are we getting warm yet?  Here is a photo I took from my front porch.

This photo was taken a couple of winters ago.  That year we had around 154 inches of snow, or so we’ve been told.  I hate snow but I have to admit it was an awesome winter, everywhere you looked was clean and white.  This was also before my employment with the Bird House so I was helping Hub deliver mail.  Unfortunately, no amount of snow can stop the mail. We bundled up and left for work.  It was not long before we pulled up to a set of mailbox units.  I jumped out and put the mail into the respective boxes,  jumped back in the warm truck and made a comment about how pretty this area was.  Before I could catch the words that lead to this hair raising day,  I asked, “What is up there?”  He says, “Let me show you.”  Hub is always excited to show me different places around where he grew up.  He shot me a kooky smile, and we were off.

Notes from the Birdhouse – Pay Phone

Posted April 1, 2013 By The Bird House

Last night daughter and I were coming home from a day of shopping and dinner.  On the way up the mountain we were listening to the Top 20.  The song “Pay Phone”  came on the radio. I asked her, why in the world would they call it that? Kids nowadays have no idea what a pay phone is. We then started talking about how different the world was back when I was a kid.  It was a few minutes later when Stella asked, how in the world did y’all remember all those telephone numbers?

Here is a little shorty that touched my heart.

As most of you know, I love geocaching.  Most of my stories are from the experiences that I have gotten from this game.  Never heard of this game?  Then check it out at www.geocaching.com   Not only do I enjoy finding little caches, I also enjoy hiding them and this is where this story begins.

Notes from the Birdhouse – Ooops, Sorry Officer

Posted February 1, 2013 By The Bird House

In October, I took a few days off of work and off the radar.  No iPad or computer just my friends and me.  We went to a geocaching event in Las Cruces.  I was so excited to get out of town that I left early that morning for a 2 hour drive.  I went to the hotel with my conformation number and was denied access to my room. Why, because I did not make the reservation with my credit card.  One of the other girls did and I had to wait for her before they would let me check in.  It was something about room reservation theft.  UGH! She was not going to be in town until 5:00 p.m.  and I was there at 7:30 in the a.m..  I know, I know, I was just a wee bit eager. Read the remainder of this entry »
