Keep your eye on the skies is right. That wouldn't be a little goose plop, that'd be what's referred to as a boeing bomb. I doubt they have wings. I've had weird encounters with lights at night and even have a pic of a basketball sized orb 10 feet in front of me when taking a pic of a cellar hole. No goatsuckers or close encounters. Just distant observations. I've had the hair stand up on the back of my neck more then a few times in the woods or on the way home late at night from a fishing trip. One night I could hear the leaves moving just over the top of a steep bank. I would stop and a second or 2 later the noise would stop. I just kept walking and stopping and cold sweating. The farther up the hill I walked the closer the noises got. The steep bank gets shorter and eventually levels out even with the road. As I got to the spot in the road where the bank levels off I built up some courage (stupidity) and charged the woods with my flashlight. I growled and prepared to scream like a little girl. That's when I saw it. I'd never seen one in the woods before and now I was within 20 feet of a rather large gathering of porcupines. Guess my gave me an overactive imagination. The large family group of killer mountain walkers that I expected to encounter turned out to be a bunch of slow moving pricker bushes. Sometimes you just never know. Oh by the way. I loved your story Redhawk. Pass it down your family tree and it will get locked into the roots of folklore. Jason

the syracuse Skychiefs Scooch- the mascot of the Syracuse Skychiefs AAA baseball team (farm team of the Toronto Blue Jays) . A rather large orange creature with a permanent smile and huge feet. He wears a blue hat and blue jersey. I'm not really sure what he is but there's a picture of him on the home page of skychiefs.com.

This will be your second lobotomy if I'm not mistaken?

Do you know when that picture was taken?

I wonder if it was someone wearing THIS. A turkey hunter, on someone's private land. Scurries away when he notices someone taking his photo. These suits are made to refract light in a way that makes the hunter difficult to discern. Just a thought.

Great idea!

I can wear this on Halloween night when the neighbor kids come to the front door. The Darth Vader outfit coming out of the bushes is getting old.

Kind of like a "Gilly Suit" that snipers wear.
