    What's it Look Like Outside Your Office Window?

    The building I work in is a converted nursing home. My office is in the basement. We have a small wing for the transportation dept. I like being in the basement. Some of the people we serve stop by daily, it's always interesting to talk to them. The organization was founded by Franciscan Nuns 140 some years ago. Behind the build is a small wood. Maybe a quarter mile long by 200 yards wide, backed by farm fields.

    When I started there 2 years ago I thought the wood was a nice view. Once in awhile I'd see some wild life out there. The turkey's occasionally roast in the trees. Fun to watch them come down out of the trees. Long story short, I said we should put a feeder outside the window. Chad the mechanic made a little feeder. We put cracked corn in it when some one thinks of it. I was surprised to see a cardinal pair stop by, squirrels, opossum one day, just a real variety of birds at different times.

    So, here's what it looks like outside my office window. What's it look like outside of yours?

    Unfortunately, my office window faces Becker College and all I get to see are the girls that want to be graduates.. I know that sounds great but there are times I would rather see the cardinals, turkeys and deer like at home,, and the language these kids have?????... If you get my drift. I consider you lucky to have that view. I would love a nice pristine view with wildlife than any rushing hub bub loud bothersome constant vehicle moving daily drone of sound I have now... But I have 11 months to retirement so my wish will come true soon! We live in the woods and I love it.

    Hmm. It's been nearly 20 years since I had an office window; but as I recall correctly, I could see what used to be the old Bell Telephone building and is now the Oklahoma City University Law School. On the other side was the Journal Record Building and the Survivor Tree.

    My office, is (was) the first building North of the Journal Record building; the Survivor tree is just South of the JR building. I used to walk downtown for lunch sometimes; I could never walk on the side of the street where the fence with all the teddy bears and such were located. Our building originally contained, I believe, the Long Distance Bell Telephone service; it was heavily damaged in the blast. The state bought the building and refurbished it and we moved in about 1997, before the Memorial was finished.

    u know i am not a great speller too.so when i read about the roasted turkey i just thought it meant roosting in the trees. never in a million yrs did i think of cooking the bird, but i got to say it made laugh my butt off, after i realized what it should of been.

    so in 3rd grade if i could of had phonics back then, i too would of became a better speller -huh.English was not one of my better subjects. never could really get why one word needed another word to help it out.
    .................................................. ...................

    my office was either a semi--or a piece of heavy equipment in my lifetime. no real structure to speak of.

    so i got to see all kinds of things over the yrs. wildlife running across the strip job, bears, saw a real live Fisher as i ran to get back in my dozer. no fear of our dozer's from it-it even walked underneath my buddies dozer(a d-11n) while it was running.

    same job--i used to take our bagged garbage along to the job, to bury it. well one night in the fall, when we quit, walked up to my truck--and all along the one side of bed-was paw prints- on the tailgate and bumper was same thing, i often wondered if the bear could of got his rear leg up--he could of got inside the bed, and tore into the bag of garbage.

    everyone claimed the bear wanted my old cherry pie wrappers, that i always threw in the bed back then.. one day in daylight, a bear wandered across the back filled part of the job, boss and all the daylight crew, claimed he had several old cherry pie wrappers in his mouth, that day.

    they thought for sure he was hunting the fella who was buying them pies. i guess he thought they was as good, as i did-huh.

    looking out the window of a truck, while stuck in traffic, in a major city----well...............let ur minds wander..............
