Mr McKrekor here stuck in the Twilight Zone
Oh, that woman. I am talking about my friend Lilian. I have heard it said she gets like that, forever taking on a new cause and this is my first experience with such a phase in her life. I wasn’t even an egg the last time. I really wanted to pursue my endeavor of courting my new Sweetheart but here comes that woman, by the way she throws her purse over her shoulder and aims her step to the car. I can tell she is on a mission. Can I fly 50MPH and catch up with her car? I can try because I would really love to let my Sweetie know I am leaving for a bit. One more dip in the birdbath in front of the house to be presentable…
It is, after all, 86 degrees and this could be a long trip to where ever she is rushing to. I just wish I had a little notice but Humans are a strange species. Everything on a schedule, everything has to happen right now and not flexible, at least not to my interpretation. Read more …
Mr. McKrekor shouting from the rooftops, actually the trees by the rooftops. April has finally left and oh what a month that was. On the surface. It appeared to be much of the same but one did not need a microscope to see how it really played out.
To start off I want to tell you that it was the wettest month on record. In Washington State it rained 44.69 inches between October and April compared to 37-plus a few inches in a 12-month period. AND the rainy season has not even ended yet.Talking about ruffled feathers, I was soaked. On the Chehelis Reservation on Moon Road Lilian discovered an empty Eagle’s nest two years ago. Not so this year. A female had taken up residence in the nest and her young ones had hatched already. Imagine, a nest staying in tact for such a long period of time with all the wind and rain for 3 seasons. Who said we feathered friends don’t know how to construct a dwelling…. Read more
MR. MCKREKOR checking in. What a unpredictable month March turned out to be….or was it in fact predictable? Lilian has a mind-lamp. It was programmed by her to change colors when changes take place, such as physical conditions in her body like raising blood pressure, dangers approaching her, such as the cat running in front of her feet, arriving visitors in the Driveway or Etheric Entities checking in for a Hello. Within 5 minutes her lamp had a changing spell seldom observed by anyone in such a short time frame.
Like Spring storms, which have arrived in most of the Hemisphere, or Fall storms in the opposite side of the planet, people’s lives have been impacted and continue to be affected on a daily basis. Her, Lilian’s FBFriend Hannelore Ballard got hit by a Tornado, all are OK but much damage she posted. I would like to think the Tornado warning systems in Dallas, where she resides, were functioning properly and she took the required precautions and having followed all instructions as to how to avoid getting hit…..it happened anyways.

Mr MCKREKOR reporting! Not that it is hard to find worms these days, in fact the worm is in about EVERYTHING I look at. All I have to do is turn my keen eye to the ground and there it is!
While I am deciding if I should stick with the worms or aim for the food Lilian left for me I can hear the news inside of the house. There is no lack of information, she leaves the TV on ALL DAY and ALL NIGHT. You think she would loose her mind with all the negative things they, on TV, talk about.
She insists people have to be informed and yells at the television set at times. I think she knows everyone’s voice and doesn’t even look while cooking, just laughs hysterically and yells at the Anchors. Well great, she must have been to Trader Joe’s and bought some “natural” bird seed. Wish I knew what it suppose to have tasted like before it was poisoned with GMO’s. But to tell it right, it only takes a few minutes to drive the extra mile and come as close to real food as we can these days. She, Lilian was excited to learn that ALDI owns Trader Joe’s, which explained the prices. It is almost impossible to get healthy food. Main Stream News is finally talking about Chemtrails, and the pollution of the Oceans. I think now that the President has refered to the news as the enemy of the people they just started to tell it all. Good, NEWS should be neutral and not afraid of the government. It has also been reported that the nuclear accident due to the Tsunami is now responsible. Read more …
Mr McKrekor here…
First day of 2017, like anything changes just because we flipped the calender….. but that is what people like to believe so let’s go with that.
Lilian drove to town, as always , with me in tow. She mentioned to her passenger that things felt weird and he agreed. A Red-Father-Hawk followed her…he must not have seen me because they have known to attack a little fella like me and I was a bit nervous… Traffic lights were out on Olympia and they had snuck an oil-train in on the town. Guess no-one was looking for a fracking oil train on a holiday and with that they “ People of Olympia” were outsmarted and it kept protesters away.
A blue small SUV cut in front of Lilian and the bumper-sticker read” When People lead the leaders will follow. Lilian thought that was a crazy sticker with our new President and all…but it got better. Read more …
I am Mr. McKrekor, the offspring of KAR, an early childhood friend of Lilian’s granddaughter Ebony. KAR talked to Ebony starting during an early age, Ebony in turn, was always able to tell her Grandmother what it was KAR wanted to relate. When I decided to hatch on Planet Earth I wanted to stay close to the family my ancestor KAR spend most of his time with. So here I am, like KAR, observing, reporting and interacting with Ebony’s Grandmother Lilian.
In some cultures, we Crows, along with our 40-kin species, are considered messengers. We have the gift of communication amongst ourselves and with people if they are willing to pay attention and listen. I would have preferred to be a Magpie, because in my opinion they are prettier, but it was not meant to be. It is said I am the spitting image of KAR.
I have parked myself on Lilian’s porch at the moment so I can see what she is doing and if lucky can hear what she says when sharing her news. Read more …

How refreshing! A Dog Show on NBC! It is so good to actually see something to enjoy on TV, so much violence and bad news. I had written the newsletter so many times in my head last few days but felt like I should wait for something BIG…. there it was…the ending to such a turbulent month. Crazy as a Dingbat…. actually never knew what a Dingbat is, but I like the way it sounds.
As soon as the news hit of Castro’s death I knew why I had waited. Stories flooded in so here is the first one I got. Read more …
