200 Pages of Handwritten Gibberish

Our attorney, Daniel Gibson, filed the motion to dismiss and brief in support of motion to dismiss and motion for a gatekeeper order.  We are asking the court to prevent Deric from filing further legal actions against us unless represented by an attorney and getting permission from the court, and Deric did not disappoint in his responsive pleadings.  If you can call them “responsive”.  What he submitted was 200 pages of handwritten gibberish, except for…

So, I Guess I’m a Bird Mom

  I know I have spent a bit of time updating about CeeCee on here, but hey…it’s my blog, I can do what I wanna. LOL  People have asked me to post pics and videos, and I will be creating a YouTube channel and probably an Instagram for her…just because she is such a little darling, and her personality invokes a smile.  She really does have a lot of character for being such a tiny little…

Feeding and Perching

​​ I am so pleased with her development. Yes, he is a she and I am calling her CeeCee. Today she flew to my finger when I called for her and she finally ate mealworms and seeds.  She is getting closer to a time that I could release her, but I’m concerned about her lack of fear around the dogs. She flew to Wilson and sat on his back.  She does seem to be scared…

Ceefus Takes Flight

I never thought this little guy would make it to be honest.  I’m told that most rejected baby birds in human care will die.  I wasn’t sure I was making the right choice by intervening rather than allowing nature to take its course, but I am so glad I chose to try to save him. He has grown so much since I found him. He had so few feathers and I thought surely he wouldn’t…

Baby Bird Rescue 

The sparrows have been using my blinds outside as a nest all summer, and one of the babies either fell out of the best twice or was pushed out by mother bird or other siblings.  After I put him back in the nest, I would check on the ground and peek up in the nest to make sure he was okay.  On Monday, they pushed him out again so I intervened.  I really wasn’t expecting…

Rainelle, WV: Thousand Year Flood

My heart breaks for the people of West Virginia as they try to bounce back from historical flooding.  Rainelle, WV was hit especially hard with 18 deaths in Greenbriar County, and just about everything in the flood’s path destroyed.  Rainelle, like my hometown of Meadow Bridge, is a very small, rural community.  The population is less than 1500 with an estimated median household income of around  $27,821.  That figure is probably being quite generous.  These folks…

Tammy Moorer Has Lost It

The trial of Sidney Moorer started three days ago and while trial testimony has been interesting with quite a bit of information being revealed,  watching Tammy Moorer lose her shit on Facebook has been even more fascinating.  Tammy is sitting at home watching the live trial feed online, and has been providing commentary.  Now, if you were being accused of kidnapping, and had been accused of murder but had those charges dropped (for the time…

Rhoden Family Murders

I have been following the Pike County, Ohio case because it is local and the “hillbilly” family dynamics is interesting.  I use the term hillbilly not as an insult but to describe the way of life.  I, myself, am a “hillbilly”.  I grew up in southern West Virginia and can relate to the small town atmosphere and cultural mores.  My life in rural Appalachia was rough.  I know poverty firsthand and what it means to…

Moorer Pretrial & Morning Meltdowns

  Yesterday was the pretrial hearing on Sidney Moorer’s kidnapping case to allow or disallow expert witness testimony on the vehicle seen on CCTV footage.  Ultimately, expert witnesses were allowed for both sides. This case is unique, in that the Defendants are bound by a gag order yet continue to publicly discuss the case on their personal Facebook pages, as well as making disparaging comments about Heather Elvis on many Facebook pages that were created…

Law & Order Perceptions

I found this post on Facebook pertaining to the State of SC vs. Tammy and Sidney Moorer, and found it interesting. Innocent Until Proven Guilty March 26 at 11:31am · The state of SC has had the opportunity to clear the air. They charged a man and his wife of kidnapping and killing Heather Elvis. Yet they have not provided any direct evidence to support these claims. Even worse, they jailed this couple and hid…
