TODAY started out like most days! Tinkerbell climbed on top of me about 3:15 slapping me in the face trying to get me to wake up. It only takes a couple and I am trying to pet her so I can fall back to sleep. It was not meant to be this morning. Did the regular routine fed the animals, put on my uniform and of course brushed my teeth.
Get to work on time have my shift meeting and the my day starts. Nothing out of the ordinary happened today. College kids picked up for smoking pot while traveling during the holidays. Just the normal thing this time of year.
Five o'clock finally comes and I run over my Sgt trying to get to my car and leave for home. Brrrrrrrrrr it had gotten a lot cooler during my 12 hour shift so I dread coming home to my cold old farm house. (Glad you liked my pictures last night)
Ok 40 minutes later I am in front of the ranch checking my mail. There inside was a small size yellow envelope with only my name and address. I always look to see who mailed me something and there was no return address. I figured it was junk mail and tossed it aside while I fed the animals and tried to fix supper but it ended up being fed to the cats. haha I really believe I am forgetting my cooking skills.
Take my bath get my new fuzzy on and decide to look at the mail. To say I was shocked at what I found is under stating it. There were these two pictures inside with no letter or note. Just these two pictures that I have not seen in several years. One was taken of me and my ex for a Christmas card one year and the other was taken at my mothers home several years ago. Now who would send me these pictures and the biggest questions is WHY?
Were they trying to hurt me with the Christmas picture? Who would be that stupid or cruel!
Of course, I thought of the idiot but where did he get my mailing address? I normally get along with most everyone so I can not think of anyone wanting to be mean to me but the longer I looked at these pictures the madder I got. (Whoa Ms Pearl its the holidays)
Anyway what do you think?

How will I be able to sleep tonight trying to figure this one out? Of course I called my brothers wifes knowing that they would not have done it or my brothers and they were as surprised as myself.

Another crazy day for sure!

Don't forget tomorrow is the drawing for the chocolate or Gone with the Wind plate.

My guess would be someone that didn't want your Ex husband to have these beautiful photos of you in his possession...Maybe his new wife?

Hope you don't lose too much sleep over it Maggie~ Happy New Year!


Nikia, May and da kids said...

I can say one thing, you had a great tree and a sassy little figure in those pics. It was probably your ex or a new gal he's with, who cares. You look good in those photos = )

I had that happen to me years ago only with love letters unsigned attached to flowers every time. Come to find out it was some married loser trying to hook up with me. Yuck!

You look fab regardless sweetie!


Julie said...

Yep, that's pretty odd, Maggie--don't worry about it too much, though--maybe they just thought you'd want them...who knows! Your home looks lovely--thanks for sharing!

Karen said...

How strange! But you do look VERY BEAUTIFUL in these photos! Like Robin said, it could be his new wife...and from what I've heard of her, she definitely wouldn't want these gorgeous pictures in his possession :) Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Karen

Brynwood Needleworks said...

I agree, Maggie. Probably the ugly new wife. Why would she want pictures of beautiful you and your mistake to remind her of what she lacks? I'm just saying...
Either way, I wouldn't spend another second thinking on it. Have a ceremonial "burn" in one of your old dishes and don't let them have free rent in your head. Happy New Year, my friend.
We're always here for you!

Andrea said...

That is really strange..and like would drive me crazy until I knew who sent them. I don't know why I allow things like that to plague my brain, but I do.
Blessings and prayers,

Kinda weird indeed. Keep your ears open and someone will slip with it.
Don't let it freak you out...........hopefully that isn't what was intended.
Love your gorgeous yellow hair!

Ok, a little odd yes but no point in dwelling on it. Whomever sent them didn't want them anymore and thought you might. At least there wasn't anything else weird in the envelope. Maybe God had his hand in it, you'll never know but now you have your cute pics back. Then you should cut your ex out and super impose a picture of you kissing Hugh
Jackman instead and post them on your blog. Hope that helps!

T's Daily Treasures said...

All I can say is whomever sent the photos, obviously didn't want to be known, which is sneaky and they must be jealous otherwise, they would have just sent a note and said "Hey there Maggie, I found these old photos of you and thought you might like them." Since they didn't do that, they are small minded and no sense in paying any attention to them and their petty little ways! You are above and beyond all that nonsense! Be blessed and keep smiling! Hugs, Tammy

jojo said...

Well Maggs, I've got to say that those pics are really nice and hopefully the person who sent them didn't want to hurt you. That would be really insane and cruel. Maybe they found them and just wanted you to have them. Maybe?? I hope you don't worry your pretty little head about it but I do understand needing to know who and why. Take care sweetie..jj

Tracy Suzanne said...

Hey Maggie. What a great picture of you. Your picture is just as beautiful as your heart is. BTW - Thank you for your sweet post to me the other day. I've been very slow lately. You made me feel so special.

I think everyone's probably right about the new girl/wife. J-E-A-L-O-U-S!!! And why wouldn't she be, look at those photos! I hate to get a message or anything else and have to wonder who it was. I drives me crazy. Do your best to ignore it and be glad that you've got that beautiful picture of yourself.

Hugs...Tracy :)

Me....bunny said...

It's probably someone who reads your blog because you were telling us the story of the ugly wife...and someone who is petty and immature...ring any bells? Doesn't matter, it's not worth worrying about...besides, don't you carry handcuffs and a gun...shoot girl, I don't think anyone's gonna mess with you or ms. pearl ~

Stupid is as stupid does!! Whoever did this is very stupid!! I guess it now depends on you as to how you react to it!!
People... This is why I love my Boyz!! LOL!!
Happy New Year!!

Nezzy said...

This Ozarks farm chick says It's gotta be the new ugly gal in XXX~Hubby's life. No woman, no matter how ugly would want a pic of Hub's beautiful, funny gun totin' wife layin' around reminding him of the treasure he lost. 'Nuff said!!!

Have a wonderfully blessed day and don't let the 'Turkey' get ya down!!!

sjmcdowell said...

Hi Maggie!! It is very strange to say the least with no note...but strange things do happen.,,,as ya know!!
I hope that this new day will bring just normal boring
things to you...hahaha Love you girl! Hugsss From Susan in Georgia!!

Hi Maggie:
I agree with Jo Jo; someone wanted you to have these pictures because you, my dear, are stunning!!! I am glad you got them.
Don't bother yourself with the worry because you are more than that.
Actually I like them as you are like I pictured in my mind; a blond Marilyn Monroe!!!
Take care Sweet Maggie
peace & Hugs

Jenny S said...

I agree, it was someone who did not want your ex to have reminders of how beautiful you are!! Woo!! You are one pretty lady!!

Just a thought and keep in mind I'm on vacation so my brain is fueled by travel miles and sugar overload.

I think someone wasn't being mean, possibly thoughtful. Thinking just maybe you may have been feeling sad, kids all grown and life being different (a feeling I know all too well). Maybe the pictures were a reminder of how lucky you have been (did your ex give you wonderful children?) and what a beautiful person you are. Think of it as a gift of lovely memories. Hugs!

Don't worry about who sent them pet!!! Be glad you have those lovely photos of yourself!! You look fabulous!!! I'm glad we were able to see them!!!

Brenda @Cozy Little House said...

I'm sorry this happened. Why are people so obsessed with hurting others? I don't get it. Must have better things they could be doing, don't ya think?

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

What in the world am I going to do with all of you? You are all just sweeter than our Southern Hospitality. For my next giveaway I am going to give away eye glasses. hahahahahaha
Believe me I love your comments but really sweet ladies this ole woman is far from beautiful! I hated to post these because never but one time maybe at my sons wedding have I taken a good picture.
You all are just too funny and sweet but thats why I love all of you.
I did my best to not think about these pictures and who sent them after reading all of your helpful comments.
I am looking forward to moving on with all of you in 2010 and laughing all the way.

Hi Maggie - I could so relate to your post about Tinkerbell coming in and waking you up at 3am! The only difference is that I usually have to get up and go to work!!

Have a great New Year - I'm sure 2010 will be a much better year for you.

P.S - Glad to hear that you didn't have to work this Christmas ...

Hello Maggie, I just read your blog for the first time, and I so admire you. I also experienced what you did. It changed my life and not for the happier. I just cannot get past my .... well .... past. I really think you are such a beautiful woman and a SHERIFF too no less!!!! I shall read your blog every day and enjoy it. I especailly enjoyed these pictures of your home - I love that pastel look too. You sound like a really fabulous person - as you obviously are.
