a funny thing happened on the other side of the world...

I don't know who is interested in or believes in cryptids, but I'm an avid "well they COULD exist" believer. Sure Thunderbirds and Mothman are pretty hard to believe in. But what about Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster? Those I think just MIGHT really exist - and I'd like to think that they do.

I found an online live-feed looking out over the loch titled "Nessie-Cam" and the kids and I have been saying good morning to Nessie a few times each week for the last few years, just for giggles. We've never seen anything, but it's fun to see the seasons change in a climate SO different from our own. This morning we woke up and I was reminded that we hadn't checked on Nessie in awhile, so we logged on.

While we didn't see anything going on in the loch, we DID see something rather funny! There are two sheep kept in a fold just in front of the loch so cam-viewers see something live and know the feed is working. Their names are Mavis & Sheba, and they're worth watching all by themselves. Sometimes they're huddled together, other times they look as if they're asleep, and sometimes we watch them run around in little circles chasing their tails.

But this morning... THE SHEEP GOT OUT!!!

There we were, thousands of miles away, watching two Scottish sheep escape their fence! Maybe you had to be there, but we thought it was pretty funny. Who knows? Maybe Nessie scared them!
