The picture above is of Gary Birkholz, a dear friend and the poem below is one of the many stories of him.


Mountain Man
There’s a man we know quite well and have for many years.
We celebrated many great joys and we shared many tears.
His sense of humor is well known to everyone around.
We couldn’t have found a better friend in this whole entire town.
When he walked in one day he was dressed like a Mountain Man.
He really was authentic because he does own mountain land.
He & my husband, the other Mountain Man, went on a little trip.
They would only be gone a day, no need for me to flip.
They arrived in the mountains but a blizzard came at night
There was no way to get out now, no human was in sight.
They only took enough food for a day, so they pictured a bleak end.
If they could get a call out, what crazy person would they send?
What were the Notorious Mountain Men to do, for they were the best around?
Very few men had their experience, especially the ones in town.
But there was a sheriff in town, who knew both men real well,
He notified the rescue team, exactly where this pair dwell.
It took days to get to them for they were far back in the woods.
They rationed all the food they had and all their earthly goods.
The Mountain Men finally spotted the rescue party getting near.
“Oh, thank God we’re saved, and getting out of here.”
But the razzing and humiliation they took from the entire rescue team.
Made them want to turn around and go back to the mountain stream.
They lost their Mountain Men image that day on the mountain peak.
And every time someone mentions it, they get timid and meek.
Written by,
Bonnie May

A fine tribute, Bonnie. As for the photo, there's obviously a "glitch" in the system. I cannot add a photo either. Love and best wishes,

Don't need the picture, Bonnie, you illustrated it well in verse - well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Bonnie, this is really well written...the visual images caused this reader's mind to run wild. I'll bet those "Mountain Men" think twice before they go to the mountains again. This was a great story & I enjoyed it tremendously.

Well...they surely learned their lesson, these Notorious Mountain Men! Ya go to the Mountains, ya go prepared :o) Glad they came down the mountain intact.
Blessings and Love ~ Micke

Fortunately no mountains around here, hell not even a sanddune to get lost on...but I know their feelings as I have been lost at sea in the past in a small boat not made for deep sea adventures...oh well, guess I better stay on the beach...Ed

To be lost and then to be found safe is a feeling you never forget,,,, great story
Love, Christine

So rescue team members are real people, too? Razzing the victims is not what we see on tv. They must have been so glad to know your mountain men were safe. Meanwhile, back in town, Bonnie was probably a nervous wreck. I know the feeling, since Bill is an adventurous guy in his own way. What would we do without them?

Love, your Sis

Take the picture to JPG (from 72 to 300 dpi)and you will have an uploading just like that..."...(I am doing something with my fingers and noise is involved)
Been a few times on a few mountains, although, I don't reccomend to get lost on the Victoria mountains of east Australia.
Good story, the man?

Isn't it an irony how two brave men can have their egos bruised so easily? Excellent write!
Reviewed by Lois Christensen
Very brave 2 men on the mountain and waiting to be found. Must have been quite an experience but will not stop them from going again. Liked this write. When the mountain fever gets them off they go don't they? I guess they think they are free there but they leave worry behind for their wives and families til they are home again.
