My First Drone…

Our good pals from the NoisyRoom  moved to Oklahoma recently and here is their latest update…

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton the NoisyRoom

Many of you know that we just moved 1800 miles to Tulsa, Oklahoma. It’s been one wild ride over the last two months, but we are finally settling in.

It’s sooo green here! Not what I expected at all. Very hot and very high humidity. Spiders big enough to put a saddle on and rope cattle. Don’t ask. The people are wonderful here — among the nicest and friendliest I have ever met and I’ve lived in a lot of places. In the middle of the Bible Belt, I feel right at home. Oklahoma is said to be the most conservative state in the Union. I love it.

But, if I held any beliefs that the surveillance state had not encroached on the Okies, I found out differently Monday night. I don’t know if it was personal or if anyone even knows I’m here or cares, but I had my first drone experience.

We had just turned in for the night. It was about 9:30 PM. Our bedroom’s window is at the front of the house. Reason 1,387 that I will lease a different home in a year. Suddenly, we heard a motor that sounded liked a radio controlled plane and strobe lights lit up our window. It only lasted a few minutes. We believe it was a UAV Police Helicopter with strobe lights. It looked us over for a brief period, then rose and left like nothing happened. We were just relieved we were not SWATted.

We did however bring our guns into the bedroom, where they stay with ammo. I did not sleep well for the remainder of the evening and hubby was up all night checking the perimeter. The whole thing creeped me out and hubby is less than thrilled. The experience brought our lives and what we do into sharper focus. Way to greet a well known blogger Oklahoma! Won’t slow me down a bit — my family is from Oklahoma and we are Oklahoma strong. A fruit basket would have been nicer.

Just sayin’… T~

You be the Judge…

Hang in their my friends and keep up the good fight… Marion at AskMarion~

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
