NOW PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING NOTE FROM A LITTLE GIRL WHOSE NAME IS NOT REALLY MELISSA AND THAT'S IT

 

Above, at the arrow --- hidden in a small bush --- is a small folded note from a little girl whose name is not really Melissa.

The Michelob beer bottle base (a religious object) in the lower left corner of the photo is what led me to the note.

Here I did something here which I almost never do.  I tampered with the scene.  I read the note.  I couldn't not read it.

I have encountered several other notes since this event but I have never opened or so much as touched another one and I never will, ever again.


 

Below is a long view of that same scene.  The top arrow points to the note and the bottom arrow points to the Michelob beer bottle base.

 


Figure above shows the outside of that note, unfolded, with an address written in the hand of a young girl just learning to write (Arrow).  Printing beneath the photo is a reconstruction of her text in my hand trying to imitate the style of that young girl.

Figure below is an enhanced detail from the address side of the folded note.


 

Figure above shows the inside of the unfolded note and again a reconstruction of her text in my hand trying to imitate her handwriting.

This time She spells God's name correctly.

(Text reads:  "Dear God I hope your fine I just want an A plus on my (illegible word) report card.  Love Melissa (not her real name)).


 

Above is an enhanced detail of that same text.  Melissa's signature is obscured by a fold in the note at bottom, however, the word love can be made out on the lower left.

 


 

About 20 yards distant from the bottle base and note is the stone clump pictured above looking as if it was placed there yesterday.  It is clearly modern.  

I was riding by on my dirt bike and I saw the clump.  I stopped and that clump led me to the nearby bottle base and then I saw the note.  All three are connected and, all, almost certainly placed there by Melissa's grandfather.

Those mountain tops in the distance are on a secret military base.

During the cold war the Los Angeles Times reported that in a nuclear attack the first target hit would be out on that base.  I don't know for sure but I think that secret target might be an underground communications center.

I think (but don't know) that there might also be an ancient Shoshonean religious site out on that base.

Because the Indians can't leave their offerings at the now unreachable site out on the base they do the next best thing --- they leave their offerings at the edge of the base as close to the off limits site as they can get.  (That's what I think.)

 

   THAT'S IT !!!
