Mystery Readers Journal and Miss Birdie

Law, hit's good to see you, honey. Come on up here and git you a chair on that end of the porch. I'll set myself over here and we'll holler back and forth. I'm doing just fine. Calven has been doing what little shopping I need and I ain't in need of much. This flu thing is hitting the old folks hard and I praise mercy I ain't in a nursing home. And it's a good thing I ain't going out for if I saw some of those folks that won't wear masks, carrying on like they do, I believe I'd take my wa...

Miss Birdie Studies on Memorial Day

Why, Lizzie Beth, you like to give me a fright. I was just setting here thinking and didn't hear you pecking at the door. Come right on in and get you a chair. No, I weren't here yesterday. Bernice sent her boy to bring me to Decoration Day at their cemetery over on Ridge Top.  You know I love Decoration Day and visiting with all the Quiet Ones -- and I know a good many of them up there on Ridge Top.  We set out flowers and they had little American flags for all the veterans, even the one...

Miss Birdie and the Caged Crow

Oh, my, I didn't hear you come in the room, Lizzie Beth. I reckon you think I'm crazy, setting here on the side of the bed and jigging about like a crazy woman.  Come on in and get you a seat in my wheelchair. I ain't lost my wits -- them was my exercises. The therapy girls showed me what I need to do to get strong enough to where I can get around with a walker, oncet that bone doctor says I may. And oncet I can do that, Lizzie Beth, why then I can go home. Dor'thy has said sh...

Miss Birdie and the Show

Well, what about that show last night, Lizzie Beth honey? The folks here was a little ill with me after the other one -- the one where that hateful orange-faced, yaller-haired feller, which I don't believe that's his natural color a tall, was prowling around while Miss Hillary was talking, making faces and interrupting after she had sat all polite and quiet whilst he was going on. I got so put out with the way that he was doing that one time whilst she was talking and he was creeping...

Miss Birdie's Evening Sermon

Now, if that ain't a purty sky! I'm right proud you brung me up to your porch to see it tonight. Now that they've gone and run the time forward on us, the evening seems terrible long.  Look there how the sun lays along the valley betwixt here and the Blue Ridge -- ain't that a picture? You uns must have some fine sunrises up here -- but this last light of day in  the east is . . . well . . . now you'll likely think me foolish but it puts me in mind of how this life of ourn i...
