Along the way to their house we came upon the most bizarre scenes and that is what I want to share with you. It was all very strange for us, but the locals seemed to drive right by without even noticing. I guess you can get used to anything...but take a look!

As strange as that may seem, what we saw next was so much stranger. We had stopped along the way at a couple of local wineries and done some sampling, so when we came upon the next scene, I thought maybe I had sampled just a little too much wine. We crossed the highway and drove right by this back yard. I edited the photos to look like they were shot in 1960 because that just seemed like the right
thing to do. You'll know what I mean when you look at
|Alien Leaving Spaceship|
That's right folks, this was right there by the road in someone's back yard. This spaceship had landed and one alien had already gotten out and this one was getting ready to do God knows what!
As we looked over, we saw two small children trying to escape. Had the aliens already killed their parents? Were they alone and helpless with only one chance of escape? We called to them and cheered them on in their attempted getaway. We thought if they could just make it to the fence at the edge of the yard,
we could cut a hole in it and help them escape!
The alien babysitter seemed to have her back turned to them for a moment. She was giving some instructions to the other aliens. We had only moments to help these two children find their way to safety!
We kept calling out to them, but their car seemed
to be stuck on the top step of the back porch. They kept waving and yelling for us to go on without them. They knew that if we came into the backyard, we would never leave. At least that's what we thought they were saying!
|Quick, the alien's not looking!|
Sadly, we got back in our car and drove away as the children tearfully waved us on. As we drove down the road, we could hear the engines of the spaceship start up and we could only wonder if those two precious children had been put on that ship to fly to lands unknown. Hopefully they make it back to us someday and are able to tell us the REAL story of this quirky backyard!
