13 Things My Mother Says About Creekistan


My mother is visiting Creekistan this week. She's not from around here. Here are some of her impressions dictated to me:

  1. Up in "No Mans Land."
  2. Where are all the birds? I expected to hear hear birds chirping when I woke up in the morning but it's too quiet.
  3. The dog is a pain in the butt. Because he doesn't see any people, he bombards people. If you sit outside, he's trying to lick you.
  4. We sat out one night and did hear some sounds and enjoyed the full moon.
  5. Creekistan needs rain.
  6. Every time I go to Creekistan my hair goes crazy!
  7. One day, we took the bumpy "back roads" home that really had me saying 'there are no signs!' and when you do get to a stop sign, you better stop because you'll go over a cliff! I felt we really were in the backwoods. It was very interesting! But when we got attacked by three dogs and punctured a tire at the same time, it made for a very interesting trip. We were lucky to make it home in one piece.
  8. The people are different then the people where I come from.
  9. The scenery is beautiful. I bet the people that live here all the time probably don't appreciate it. I like all the trees.
  10. It's interesting to see all the different types of homes. Some that are pretty nice, to some that are pretty bad. The bads ones look like they are hardly livable, they don't look livable from the outside.
  11. The older people like to sit out on their porches or decks and watch the cars go by. They usually wave.
  12. Creekistan is on a street very few cars go by, especially at night. I wonder if anyone comes by during the night.
  13. I miss watching TV. I wonder what's happening on the outside world. I have to get the news off of the radio or the Internet.

Hmmmm... sounds like a very small place that's nowhere near anywhere. :) Of course, I'm a big city girl... so.. I probably can't survive in a smaller town.

We don't have a TV in the house too and I am so ok with it, actually, we are happier and healthier without it! As long as you have internet! :-)

I love hearing about Creekistan. It's so utterly different from my own existence.

No TV?!? That's unheard of nowadays. I don't think I could live without mine. Especially when the kids are driving me nuts....
Happy TT.

Three dogs attacked her car? I wouldn't send those comments to your Chamber of Commerce to promote tourism to your area just yet!

Too funny! And familiar too. The first winter I lived here my mother was worried that they wouldn't have snow plows in the country. She laughed at my friends outhouse. They live off the grid by choice.

I sometimes think I'd be better off without TV....Creekistan sounds pretty nice to me, on the whole.

Pages of many web site contains global warming pictures. But that pictures not give enough information of global warming. Global Warming myth is very deep ozone has doubled since the mid-19th century due to chemical emissions from vehicles, industrial processes and the burning of forests, the British climate researchers wrote.
