What is the strangest thing I had ever seen?
When just a child in the second grade, Dad took us to an air show, there I saw a plane crash. A real plane crash and the pilot was killed.
One night in Missouri Sherry and I both saw a UFO. Not up close but far up in the sky. It was lit up like an airplane with it’s landing lights on. It appeared at first like a slow, shooting star, or a real real fast air plane. What made us know it was not airplane it did a 90 degree turn at that speed. No plane I know can do that. At the time I worked at Kirksville Air Force Station. A Radar site. I called and sure enough something had appeared at speeds in excess of 5000 mph. I reported it, of course I was told I was mistaken.
One of my favorite poems is ‘The cremation of Sam McGee’. And my favorite line, which I used in my novel ‘Sticky’ was, ‘The Northern lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see was the night on the Marge of Lake Labarge I cremated Sam McGee.’ When we drove to Alaska and passed Lake Labarge, Sherry got a little tired of my story.
Did you ever see Siamese Twins? Daisy and Violet Hilton, Siamese twins, lived out their last years near out home. They had been world famous and had stared in some show business.
Thanks for coming by the log.
