Excerpts from the Valley Chronicle

It seems that the NORTH MOUNTAIN is home to its own monster mystery these days. Two tourist visiting the area last week have submitted an interesting photo while out bird watching. Although many speculate the photo to be a hoax, experts claim the picture to be legitimate and un-tampered with. With today's technology they were even able to zoom in for a close up of the creatures unsightly face. Here it is below. WARNING: DISTURBING SCENE

" It was a perfect day for bird watching..." says the first tourist who does not wish to be identified. "Clear blue skies, not a cloud in sight. Lots of great bird activity to observe. That is when it happened."

" I know it sounds crazy..." interrupts the second tourist sheepishly, "but we saw a strange furry creature levitating up and down from tree to tree." With some prompting the first gentleman continues. " Thank goodness I had my camera out and ready. I was photographing the elusive bluebirds that were nesting in a cluster of pine trees. I snapped one picture of the monster and we got out of there as fast as we could. It tried to follow us. It was speaking a strange cackling language. I think he was weak--looking for squirrels in the trees. He had a foul odor about him--like boiled underpants."

Skeptics have rejected the incident claiming a set-up with a stuffed toy, or a Jim Henson Muppet. But one resident of a nearby town, Guinness the Irish Wolfhound, has bravely stepped forward to confirm the creature's exsistence.
Looking bored, the large Irish Wolfhound rolls his eyes. "Oh, him...yeah. I recognize the picture all right...nevermind about that idiot..he's gone past his "best before" date. He is home safe now and won't be bothering with the NORTH MOUNTAIN anytime soon."

What ever you choose to believe one thing is for certain: The strange goings-on of the NORTH MOUNTAIN will feed fable and legend for years to come... and two unknown birdwatchers will never visit the area again.


  1. OH MY WORD! Guinness you are so brave! I woulda been running away with my tail between my legs, if I hadda tail! Puppy kisses, Miss Mindy. PS Mom had to run quickly to the bathroom! hehe

  2. A veritable sasquatch! Could this be one of Grouchos alien pals?

    Lots of sightings of these critters but not one report of injury or damage from them. Carry on, Guinness! Take a bath, Groucho!


  3. BAHAHAHA Now my DD will want to go splorin to find 'bigfoot' and aliens!

  4. BOL you are brave alright. Was that Big Foot you Guiness?
    Benny & Lily

  5. no- the bigfoot was Groucho--did you read the post??????

  6. Hoping you got Groucho to bathe!

  7. You are going to be inundated with 'monster watchers'....and people trying to catch the monster. Better tell Groucho to lay low for awhile.

    We're still laughin'--great story.

    XXXOOO Daisy, kendra & bella

  8. Oh that Groucho is a trickster. Please, no more with the boiled underpants, its messing with my head. No worries, and love, Stella

  9. Guinness! You aren't afraid that his evil alien friends will make you an offer you can't refuse? Are you sure that picture is real? Not touched up? I bet those tourists won't be back soon.


    P.S. Momma says, "oh my, this was so funny! What a way with words you have. I am still smiling even as I type."

  10. Hey Guinness & Groucho!
    Wow, I'm voting for a muppet!! That guy Animal is totally insame and pawesome.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  11. Has Groucho sold the film rights yet? Does he plan to play himself in the movie? Guinness should get at least a 10% cut, after he hiked up the North Mountain and saved Groucho's life. Make that 20%.

    Jed & Abby

  12. They are just lucky they didn't end up in the stew pot! phew!

  13. LOL... "boiled underpants"...
