ClassicBecky Nests In Her Treehouse


Now isn't this more elegant than typing on a keyboard in
sweatshirt and pajama pants?  Slower, but more elegant!

To my Faithful Readers:  I take my pen in hand to tell you that I am back from my offline adventures, happy to be rejoining all of you in cyberland.  I couldn't help but think of a favorite movie, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House.  I don't look like anything like Cary Grant (thank heaven, since I'm a girl), and I don't have Mr. Blandings' apparently unlimited financial resources, but my experience has been similar.  I've spent the last couple of weeks selling a house, moving and making a new nest for myself.  It has been a move with some unusual complications (that really means it has been the lowest pit of hell), but I can at last say over and out to all the twists and turns in selling my house and finding my new apartment. I love it!  I'm up on the top floor of the building and feel like I'm living in the treetops.  Tall ceilings and huge windows -- it's just my style!  I sure look forward to doing some writing, and I will be lurking around your blogs and commenting on all of your work ...  one of my favorite occupations.  I'm glad to be reconnected while I finish feathering my new nest.

  2. We've missed you, little bird, and are happy that you have found a proper nest. Now - when are you going to look back and laugh?

  5. I think this is going to be the best thing for Becky...I've spoken with some of the staff there, and they assure me that the chain-link fence and locks on the doors are just for everybody's safety. (Okay, more like our safety.) This is never the easiest decision to make, as you know...but some of her roommates seem downright swell once they've received their lemon Jell-O mixed with medication.

  6. Beck, We saved your place. But, after reading Ivans comment, it sounds like we may need to go looking for you.. Please, do not eat the lemon Jell-O. wink/wink :)

  7. Damn, Ivan, you just can't keep a secret, can you? I wasn't going to mention the bars on the wonderful big windows or the drug-laced jello (which is lime-flavored, by the way).

    CW, thanks -- I'm so happy with it!

    FlickChick, I don't think it will be long before I'm able to look back without a pang. One thing I don't miss is the weed-infested yard and the difficulty of keeping a very old house going!

    Gilby, Jacqueline, you make me feel very welcome...thanks, guys!

    Dawn, don't take Ivan too seriously -- nobody else does! LOL!

  8. Becky, you had me at "Tall ceilings and huge windows!" :-) Seriously, I'm so glad you're back among us after all the moving madness, and that you have a wonderful, spacious new home to enjoy; you deserve it! May you live long and happily in Casa Classic Becky (or whatever you've decided to call your new domicile)! Good luck and much happy homesteading, my friend!

  9. So glad you're settling into your new place! Let us know when visiting hours start. ;) Seriously, though, I'm moving to Mississippi next week, and I hope my mission goes a little smoother than your ordeal!

    Good to have you back, Becky!

  10. No problem. I was poking through your archives while you were away - really liked your piece about AMC chopping up old movies. Glad you like your new place.

  11. Becky, it is so nice to see you once again at your second home (should I say "hear" you again?). Wonderful to hear that you have settled into your new home, the top floor can be a treasure trove of visual treats. Okay, so I'm probably mixing my metaphors, but I have one question: Did you get just the right shade of blue you wanted?

  12. Dorian, I think of it as my Treehouse!
    Brandie, best wishes for a smooth move -- mine was kind of unusual this time!
    Rich, I'm glad you liked the AMC censorship piece. That's a real issue for me, as with 99% of classic movie lovers, I'd bet!
    Gypsy, it's great to BE back! LOL about the shade of blue! Actually, everything here is just what I like!

  13. I think it's safe to way we all missed our Classic Becky...welcome back!

  14. Classic Becky's Classic Digs - sure sounds like it. Tall windows, high ceilings, living in the tree tops. Can't wait to see what you do with your Treehouse.

    Glad to have you back, Miss Becky. :)

  15. Monty, you are such a sweetie!
    Yvette, I will be working on getting the Treehouse together so I can show you some pics!
    (By the way, this is ClassicBecky - my own blog won't let me leave a Google message!)

  16. Glad to see you're back. A move, good or bad, can drive a sane person batty. When through hell moving in '08. My wife and I vow never to go through that again. Most likely will at some time in the future.

    CB...I missed seeing what's new here. That candy piece lasts only so long. God its good to have you back. Don't do this for a while ok?

  17. Becks Joann and I are glad your back, now get over to TT and answer some questions, or at the least look at the welcome back picture Joann has for you LOL.

  18. Hi Tom -- I missed my blog and everybody else's too! I'm glad to be back.
    Paul -- I'm on my way over to TT. Can't wait to see one of the great pics Joann always finds!

  19. Becks,
    I saved my long winded adoration to the email but I couldn't be happier that you're back. Having you gone left a void now get to work!

    So glad you got Grey Gardens all situated so clear out a spot somewhere between the boxes and old newspapers because your loyal fans are a waitin.
    Hugs,

  20. Congratulations on the new place! Good luck!

  21. Page, I fell over laughing when you first called my place Grey Gardens. I had just seen the documentary about that. I call the new place my Treehouse since I'm up high and have lots of trees around. Thanks for your warm welcome-back!
    Desert Rocks, I appreciate the good wishes. I don't believe I know you yet, and I hope we get to know one another!
