A Different View

When you're driving through the countryside, have you ever really studied the things we so often just wizz past?

Is that pile of trash a hobo's home? Is that dark hole an entryway into a person's cave?

Come on now... roll along here with me... have aliens really landed and they live in places we simply do not see?

Perhaps this is one of their dens?
(Would you call an alien home a den?)


I slammed on the truck brakes!

Look! I shouted, pointing my finger rather rudely I might add and I exclaimed to my sister:
"It's a nest! See? I told you! It's aliens come swooped down to live amongst us as kin!" 

My sister, being the Doubting Thomas that she can be said, "No silly! It's just a pile of wood or something."

But, I just knew better! So I grabbed my trusty Nikon and hit the window button, (because even a one ton truck has to have power windows,) and starting shooting away, determined to get the evidence I needed!
There would be film at eleven! I would publish my findings and be famous! I salivated at the thought!

A serious closeup revealed a wall. Surely primitive, but maybe they weren't familiar building with earth bound materials?  I shot another!

Nothing indicated there to prove anything! 

Not to be undone, I moved to the left and shot another not so close!
(After all, I was afraid they would drag me off into their lair of I approached. )

Aw! Crap!


It was just a bunch of wooden railway ties!

I hate it when my sister is right!

That's pretty funny, Lucy. Of course they disguised themselves as soon as you approached. I'm certain you were right. :-)

Sisters are always right. Especially if they are the baby sister. I know. Ask me.

Right back at ya - but I love you anyway! - J
p. s. Because I finally figured out how to put the phone in the bathroom, I had to stand there shivering, with soap drooling into my eyes while a client yattered on for 15 minutes. I realize this has little to do with space aliens - or aliens of any other kind, but there you are.
