The Tail of the Alien and the Sea Monster

Guinness here...what the?  What are those beams coming up over the NORTH MOUNTAIN?

Gulp. It is Groucho.  We are being summoned.  He is signalling to us from his new lighthouse.

We all head over to the ocean right away.  Groucho shows us around.  He works here now as the lamp lighter.

Groucho shows us all around.  He has a good view.  We tell Groucho we would like to walk down to the warf.  Groucho gets all shifty.  He finally tells us the reason why he summoned us.

 Groucho says he does not want to go down to the warf.  A terrible sea creature lives there and he is scared.  He said every night he levitates up to the the top of the light house and sleeps with the light blaring all night...he is so terrified of the sea monster.

I head down to the ocean with Maggi leading the way.  We have to get to the bottom of this.  I can't have Groucho summoning me all hours of the night you know.
 We check all around the warf.

 And then I spot the sea monster

He tries to snag us.  Hook, line and sinker.

 But the sea monster just wants to be friends.  He said he use to live up at the lighthouse but now it has been invaded by a crazy, levitating ALIEN!  He is too scared to go anywhere near the lighthouse now and lives down at the warf instead.  

We have to agree with him.  He is much safer on the warf.  And that is the "TAIL" of Groucho and the sea monster.


  1. That was kind of scary, but I think it all worked out in the end.

    Love the lighthouse.


  2. Haaa!
