War of the Woods

Lana got a picture of this in our backyard the other night. I have a pretty good guess as to what it is. But I could be wrong. Could be that intelligences far greater and colder than my own are watching my house, scrutinizing and studying Lana and myself. Could be that tonight I’m posting with infinite complacency on my blog while the warmth of my home is watched with envious eyes and plans are being laid against me. Could be.

Could well be.

Charles, I think somewhere in the dark, you are being watched by Marvin the Martian.

Heh, heh

Lana said...

*Gestures the evil dwarf back into the woods, mouthing, "He's on to us!"*

Wayne said...

That Darn Cat!

Lisa said...

Spooky! Any accompanying sounds?

Julie said...

...Just for a laugh I pasted rh shot into a photo editor and used a mosaic effect.

It came out as a stunning olympic class football with headlights for playing in the dark.

I'll split the millions with you if we can market it....

JR's Thumbprints said...

There's an unlimited potential of evil lurking in the dark.

Bernita said...

Hmmm, they say human eyes don't shine...

Erik Donald France said...

WTF? Eerie. "Swamp gas" ;)

Charles Gramlich said...

Josie, could be. Could well be.

Lana. *Gives her a look*

Wayne, bigger than a cat, my friend.

Lisa, I'd like to say it was accompanied by "the crunching of bones," but alas there was nothing unusual.

Julie, I'd like to see that. Agreed on splitting the millions.

JR. What evil lurks in the heart of the woods? Only the lurker knows.

Bernita, what about "half-human?"

Erik, that's what they always say just before the abductions begin.

Church Lady said...

OOOO! Spooky. And these eyes are roaming. Following. Focusing.

So cool.

Wayne said...

Bigger than a cat That's big.

etain_lavena said...

hoot hoot....run for the hills, no wait they are there tooo.......arrrgggg...you and lana are in trouble.:)

Julie said...

Maybe I exaggerated the stunning....

On mine.

Sidney said...

I'd call Fortean Times.

Lana said...

wayne; No, bigger than a cat. ;) *L*

Ello said...

THat's pretty cool! I would so love to see that in my backyard and scare my kids with it! Eat all your dinner or that thing with the glowing eyes will come and get you! Ha that would be great! I know I"m sick.

SQT said...

I'd be in my house frantically telling myself "it's just a racoon, it's just a racoon."

Travis said...

Creepy! Now why do I have the feeling something is watching me?

Wayne said...

Oh no Lara, not THAT big!

the walking man said...

What...you didn't go out and look? It could have been Ziggy stardust looking for our leader, Charles Gramlich. Oh the missed opportunity now it may be another millennium before they come back.

Peace

Mark


but just in case learn how to 'gator wrestle

Charles Gramlich said...

Mark, perhaps I did go out. Perhaps I was...converted. Perhaps I'm going to start visiting all of my blogging friends. Perhaps...

Ello, yeah, I used to tell my son a few scary stories. Once I told him the "Three Little Pigs" in vampire version. He's 20 now and still remembers it.

Travis, humans are so dependent on being able to see everything that seeing just something like that is kind of eerie.

SQT, but even it if were racoon shaped, would that mean it was truly a racoon? Might it not be a mimic?

Sid, never thought of that.

Wayne, I'll reveal the likely answer today. It won't be such a surprise.

Lana, smooches,

Julie, you? exaggerate? I don't believe it.

Etain, yeah, they're in the hills too.

Church lady, yeah, much like the picture of Jesus my mom had up at home when I was a kid. The eyes always followed you.

Inside our hands, outside our hearts said...

what do you think it is? Reminds me of the Mothman.

Interesting.

Donnetta Lee said...

Oooo. As I moved around the room, those luminous eyes followed me. Have to shake off the cold chills now!

Just the right size and spacing for an owl. But the Alien Invader theory is much more appealing ;)
