About Me

My Photo
Well let’s see. I was born during the Blizzard of 1978 in Lima, Ohio. I have lived in Ohio all my life. I like it here. We have corn fields instead of oceans, overpasses instead of mountains and fog instead of smog. Sure it's not the promise land, but sometimes one doesn't need postcard worthy beauty on the outside to have it elsewhere. I'm a writer for fun, a Paralegal for profession, and while one pays the bills, one feeds my imagination, or perhaps my imagination feeds my writing...either way, Writing is as much of who I am as the color of my eyes, or the way that I smile. Blogs are great communication tools, and I'm here to communicate with YOU...yeah, you who's reading this right now....*assuming anyone's out there* *crickets chirp* Alrightee then, IF anyone should find themselves here, be it by accident or on purpose, welcome, glad to have you aboard. Throw anchor, stay awhile! Sunshine & Smiles, ~Heather Lynn~

Bond, Heather Bond...

I have a very active imagination.  I love action movies that have Bruce Willis in them, and sometimes, I do this thing, where I practice my "cop skills"....No I'm not a cop, and I don't have "skills", but you always watch cop shows and they say, "what did you see?"  "how tall was he?"  "what was he driving?"  "Did you get his license plate?"

So today, while standing in the breakroom at work, getting a cup of coffee, I peeked out the window to main street Lima down below and saw something peculiar.  I saw man get out of his truck, get a pair of binoculars and then begin watching a building to the south west of our block.  I watching him intently, making mental notes of the scene.  First of all, how odd, why would someone sit on main street lima and watch a building with binoculars?  Avid pigeon watcher?  Peeping tom?  Private investigator?  Cop?  What was his deal?

Suddenly, a pedestrian on the sidewalk approached, man with binoculars pulls his surveillance equipment down and out of sight of the man approaching.  He watched warily as he passed.  He pulled them back out again, and continued looking.  Then, he got in his truck, shut the door, shuffled some things around on his front seat and then jotted some things down on a piece of paper.

Then he looked like he was inspecting a credit card or passkey of some sort.

Being the super skilled detective I am, I said to myself:  Don-Queen-Sue, 2732.  Committing his license plate to memory.  I got the make, color and model of his truck.  I sipped my coffee suspiciously and said to myself...."better hope you're not a bad guy Mister, cause I'm watching you.... PUNK!"...in my best Clint Eastwood voice....it was pretty dramatic!

Now I sit at my desk, sipping coffee, and thinking to myself....he was probably like a window washer, looking to see if his guys had finished a building.  Or perhaps he's a building inspector, or a storm watcher.....or a body guard, but then my mind says, then why hide the binoculars when someone approached?

Suddenly, I'm neither James Bond OR Clint Eastwood,
I'm crazy Mel Gibson from Conspiracy Theory! 

Sirens just went by...

maybe I'm just being paranoid....

It's probably nothing...

  1. ROFL.....yeah, you're a nut case all right!

    As for what binocular guy was looking at with his spy-balls, he wasn't by chance looking up at the Bank One building was he? If so, chances are he's one of those cooky bird nuts or maybe works for the ODNR and was checking on the status of the Peregrine Falcon nest after last weekend's storms.

  2. Grumpy - you know, as a matter of fact, he WAS looking in that direction! Is there a falcon nest up there? Now "I" have to get binoculars and check that out! Someone somewhere will likely be writing a blog about the crazy redhead with binoculars on main street next! ;)


  3. Yep, there's been a pair nesting there for years now. At one point they even had a Falcon cam setup so you could go online and watch them live.



Leave me a message! I'd love to hear your thoughts...AND...while I may be slow, 99% of the time, I'll leave you a comment back! So get interactive would ya!? :) xoxoxxo, ~hl~
