Blowin' In The Wind

In the years since my husband suddenly left, my children and I have found some rather interesting items on our property. I'd say these were blown here from elsewhere by the wind, except that most of them were either found by us on days when the air was still or else were items not likely to have been deposited by the wind for other reasons (too heavy, found in unnatural positions or locations, etc.).

These unusual items began turning up not long after my husband left and around the time I first asked the San Antonio office of the FBI for help. One Sunday morning, I stepped out of the front door of our house to walk up the driveway to retrieve our morning newspaper when I spied two wadded-up pieces of paper that had been tossed onto our front porch. There was no wind at all on that particular day, I was positive the wads of rather heavy paper hadn't been there the night before, and I seriously doubed that two similar paper wads could have coincidentally blown onto our porch at the same time, so I assumed someone had deliberately left them there. Imagine my shock when I flattened out the papers and discovered them to be official baptism certificates for two very young children. And these were the original certificates issued by St. Mary's Catholic Church in Fredericksburg, not copies.

I couldn't imagine why someone would throw away their children's baptism certificates at all, let alone wad them up and toss them onto someone's front porch on a Sunday morning. Because I had recently contacted the FBI and also because at the time I had fairly young children myself, I considered the incident threatening. I immediately mailed copies of the certificates to the FBI and asked them what I should do. I never received any kind of reply.

Following that initial incident were many years of finding large quantities of party trash (beer cans and bottles, hard liquor bottles, cigarette butts, etc.) and drug parapharnalia (used syringes, dirty spoons, steel wool pads, rubber tubing, small balloons, etc.) on our property. We also found golf balls placed under trees where they couldn't possibly have been hit or carefully laid out in trails throughout our pasture. Some of the things we found were seriously disturbing: two small dead goats that weren't ours, one with a garrotte still wound around its neck, for example. (It was my children who found these.)

Many of the items we've found on our property have been medical. We once found two bright orange surgical sponges that had been left under fairly heavy follage at the base of a cedar tree. Another time (on a windless day), we found what looks like someone's EKG record that had been left on the ground beside our driveway (see below). And in an incident reminiscent of the Tara Grinstead case in Georgia, we found a latex glove someone had dropped in our basement crawlspace that runs along one side of our house.

Recently, we found this piece of paper in our pasture:

By its condition with regard to the weather, it could not have been there long.

I'm told that it's the instructions for assembling a NATO-style screened DC power cable for high powered radio frequency equipment, with both conductors of the cable being separately sheathed and screened. I'm also told that this would be the right type of cable to power a strong directed radio frequency (RF) source or a very powerful communications system. These facts are especially interesting, given the large amounts of expensive communication and surveillance equipment bought with Department of Homeland Security money that have gone missing in Texas; see

I, as well as others, have been repeatedly asking government officials to investigate and try to track down these missing items. Disturbingly, it's straight answers from officials, not the found items, that are "blowin' in the wind".

It may be pertinent that the Irish government (and some other predominantly catholic countries) will recognize Roman Catholic Baptismal certificates as proof of identity, equal to a birth certificate. These documents could be used to open bank accounts in the child's name in Ireland.

To get a passport, the name would have to be of a child with Irish parents, or be issued by a Parish in Ireland. (Though the Republic will issue passports to those born in Northern Ireland.)

British authorities have some trouble with this, as Irish passport holders have rights in the United Kingdom which other European Union nationalities do not enjoy.
