birdie novaBIRDIE IN HER MOST PRIZED POSSESSION - HER ORANGE CHEVY NOVA I was riding with her the day 80-year-old Nellie P. Denny rammed her beaten-up jalopy into the side of Birdie's orange soulmate. Birdie got out of the car, looked at the damage, laid her head down on the hood of her beloved car and cried!BIRDIE –
Rebecca and I were now roommates, but I still ran with my 3rd floor buddies. In her new role as Mrs. Kefoffer’s "chosen" Resident Assistant, Rebecca assured me that if my rowdy friends or I broke any rules, she would still turn me in. Have you seen the movie MAJOR PAYNE? There are similarities. She obviously wasn’t going for “Most Popular” in the dorm.
It’s a miracle I wasn’t murdered! Back to the roommate deal ... On the bathroom door, facing the bunk beds, was a full-length mirror. Birdie slept on the top bunk. Every night when we turned off the lights, I got in my bottom bunk and flipped on a small lamp attached to my bed. Then I took out my Bible and read.

Chapter 6: All the Guys We Loved Before

college dating

Birdie with a prom date. This is the only remaining "date" photo to be found in the Martin & Clark archives! We found this one tucked in Birdie's baby picture book.

We headed back to Kentucky to become what we said we never wanted to be: church staff!

Birdie was Music & Youth. I was Education & Youth.

My first priority was to build the music program. At my first rehearsal I had 12 choir members.

And I was one of them!
