Let us take a little tour of this strange land in the middle of somewhere and maybe have a glimpse at a few of the residents.
First, let’s consider the cow. She doesn’t seem to live there but visits the woods on a very regular schedule. Since there are no farms or ranches nearby no one knows where she comes from nor where she goes when she leaves. She is called the “love and hate” cow because she has two very distinct personalities. We’ll find out more about that nearer the time of a full moon.
Over in the northwest part of the woods there stands a rugged mountain with steep, nearly unscalable cliffs. Here we find the nest of a huge, manly Golden Eagle. Not way up in the heights as you would expect an eagle’s nest to be, but low. Very low, in fact. This huge mountain also plays an important part in a great adventure undertaken by one of the other residents of the woods.
Way back beyond the dense growth of poison ivy that surrounds Icky Swamp lurks the Fungus Mafia. Nobody knows much about them and that probably won’t change since they tend to be a “rash and itchy” bunch.
Let us not leave out the “Wee People.” Brownies that don’t want to make shoes. A Wood Nymph that doesn’t trust trees. A Water Sprite that dislikes getting wet. They’re all here…and many more.
Finally, on the front edge of the woods, in plain open sight, where no one would think to look, is the landing field for the UFOs. It’s within spitting distance of the worlds most advanced alien spacecraft detection center, yet no one has ever noticed a thing. By the way, extraterrestrials don’t spit. This has nothing to do with anything, but I included it anyway.
And so I bring this quick little tour to a close. I’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s around here. Obviously, when one is in the Strange Woods the concept of being “bored” is not likely to take form.
