Tall Green Aliens...or Not?


I received the following account several years ago...and at the time I posted it, the report didn't generate much interest. The most interesting aspect of this incident is that it occurred in Hebbronville, Texas...a town where a lot of strange activity occurs. I have received reports of small T-Rex-like cryptids and other strange beings from Hebbronville over the years. Read the account and let me know what you think about it:

Hello Lon,

This all happened last week on Thursday and Friday evening...the 6th and 7th (June 2013). Around 11-12:00 at night, both nights, in Hebbronville, Texas. Thursday evening I went to a friend's house to do a couple loads of laundry. She only lives a few houses down so I waited til the kids were asleep to go. My oldest was still awake and I asked him to keep watch as the man of the house. I had to do the same as a kid with my siblings quite often. I figure he's 10 so he's old enough. Husband was at work doing the night shift. I left around 10:45 pm.

As I was leaving I felt scared to leave them. I felt something wasn't right. But thought I wasn't going to be far and would come back to check on them. So I put the clothes in the washer and went back home immediately. My oldest son was in the living room playing with our cat. Everything seemed fine and I figured I was being silly. So I went back. I stayed til around midnight. I got home everything seemed fine. My son was asleep on the couch. I went to bed and that was that.

The next day my son tells me he saw something the night before while I was out. He said he was playing with the cat when he noticed something peeking into our living room window. He said it was an alien. Tall skinny with dark gray green skin. Funny shaped heads. When it left our window he said he crawled over to the window and peeked out. He said the beings were walking around peeking into people's windows. One stood watch while the other did this. My son said he was scared. But didn't give any more details. So that evening I stayed up all night to keep watch. I would go outside and check the area. I checked on the kids all night. I was exhausted by 4:30 am. Nothing out of the ordinary happened.

The next day, which was Saturday I came over to my friend's house again. The kids and hubby went out of town. So I bring up the story my son told me and my friend tells me she had an encounter the night before. I get all excited. She tells me it was between 11 and 12 at night. She was sleeping on her couch in the living room. It's a small 2 bedroom house. From the couch you can see the back door. She was having trouble getting to sleep. During this time she says she heard the handle to the back door turn like someone was trying to get in. They turned the knob and she could hear them push the door. Then she noticed the lock moving. It was opening! At this time she got scared and remembers blacking out right when she was feeling panic. Later she remembers 3 beings in the house. She described them exactly as my son did. When I told her my son's story I didn't really give details about their appearance. But she was able to describe the same thing. This for me confirmed my son wasn't lying. My friend and son had no contact at all during their experiences. She described them as slimy looking with dark green skin like an avocado. They were tall and thin. She said she just laid on the couch in a groggy state as they walked around her house. Those were bits and pieces she remembered the next day.

Sunday I was talking to my son about what he saw and I told him my friend's story. He made a face and said he made the whole thing up. Now I would believe that if my friend hadn't told me her story. The fact that they both described the same thing tells me it truly happened. I am confused now but know my friend wouldn't lie. She isn't into aliens and UFOs or anything like that. So she has no need to make anything up. I find both stories fascinating. I hope you can make sense of it. M

Daily 2 Cents: What the Heck? Wandering 'Bog Beast' on Minnesota Lake -- Giant Cryptid Beetle -- Driving Through a Black Void


What the Heck? Wandering 'Bog Beast' on Minnesota Lake

MERRIFIELD, Minn. - North Long Lake is a long way from Loch Ness. But the Brainerd area lake now has its own monster.

“There’s never been one ever seen this large before,” says Bill Schmidt, president of the lake association. “It’s kind of the wild beast of North Long Lake right now.”

A floating bog – the size of three football fields – broke off from shoreline late last week and started wandering.

“When it was out in the middle of the lake and the wind was blowing, it was just a monster coming at you,” says Schmidt.

Indeed, the crumbs of several smashed docks are now part of the traveling bog.

“Came down this way and just crushed these docks,” says Schmidt, pointing at the remnants of one such dock.

Jeff and Kathy Coombs will be getting their boat lift off the lake tomorrow.

“We saw what it did to the neighbor’s docks and lifts and no way do we want that to happen to ours,” said Jeff Coombs.

A combination of record high lake levels and strong winds set the bog free.

“There’s cattails in there, there’s bulrush in there,” said Schmidt. “There’s probably even a hundred trees in there. We’re looking for help on how would you take this thing and put it back where it belongs and anchor it.”

Tow trucks and thousands of feet of cable were twice used to move and anchor a large wandering bog in Barron County, Wisconsin, most recently in 2011.

On Monday, calm winds allowed the bog to settle on one end of the 6,000-acre lake. In the short term, Schmidt says lake property owners need “a lot of prayers, that it stays here.”

North Long Lake has already had enough of its beast of a bog. - Wandering ‘beast' of a bog wreaks havoc on Minnesota lake

Driving Through a Black Void

“Summer '97. I was driving home from a city 135 miles south, where I had visited with friends. Driving on a 4 lane going north I pull out to pass a semi truck and as I got next to the trailer I looked over and suddenly everything forward was like fading into a black void. I have no idea of anything till I came out of the void just down the road from my house. It was night time and it felt like I slipped back into reality with a slight disoriented feeling. I was WOW! I drove to my house and pulled in the driveway still shaken over what happened. Getting out of my car, I look it over all around for any damage since I have no memory driving 120 miles. I was sleepy and groggy as I checked the time. I left the city around 8:30 and the sun was still up to my left in the west. It was now 11:30 at night. I entered my house and went straight to sleep. Next morning I still know something weird happened and went back out to check for damage on my car. None to be found as I was left with a mystery to remember. Where did I go when entering that black void at 8:30 and then come out of it at 11:30. That 120 mile drive home should have been 2 hours and not 3.”

Fayette Co., PA UFO

This happened many years ago when I was very young. Probably 6 to 8 years old around 1967. (yes, I know, I was very young but I can still distinctly recall what I saw or think I saw) I lived on the outskirts of a small mining town in Fayette County, southwestern Pennsylvania. We lived along an alley with another neighbor on the same side. My grandmother and a family friend (all Italian immigrants) lived on the other side of the alley. My mother was visiting the family friend (my dad had just passed away a few years prior) and I recall crossing the street one evening at dusk or early evening to join her. Crossing the alley, I heard a type of noise that sounded like a when a rocket is launching. Looking up I saw an oval shaped saucer that looked like two oval plates placed on top of each other. There appeared to be flames shooting out the back. I recall seeing what appeared to be like windows or recesses along the bottom and it appeared illuminated because I could see these details. Guessing maybe it was about 100 feet long and about 500 to 800 feet high. The object seemed to be following the direction of the alley from my right to left. I don't know why, but I don't think I ever spoke about this to my family and I don't recall anybody else seeing this. I still to this day ask myself If I really saw it. Dave

Giant Cryptid Beetle

“When I was around 8 or 9, I was going to climb the tree at my grandparents in Bessemer, Alabama when I saw a strange oversized beetle looking bug that was probably about 2 feet long and bigger around than a basketball. It had wings that were very very loud. It left me frozen with shock but immediately flew quickly out of my line of sight then gone altogether. I've never ever forgotten it and wonder about it often. I'm absolutely certain it happened.”

Weekend 2 Cents: OBE, Alien Abduction...or Both? -- Invisible Frog -- JFK File Still Scheduled For Release


OBE, Alien Abduction...or Both?

Chicago, IL: I can't be specific about dates and times. The event happened in the early 1990s while I was working as a security guard alone in a very large auto parts warehouse late at night. (the site has since been removed and replaced, and is now a location of condos and townhouses. the original building is gone.)

It was my habit of taking a nap during my shift after having made my rounds. at the time, I was also being treated for a (still undiagnosed) heart condition. What I recount next is how I told the story to friends for years, since its from the point of view of which I experienced it. I have since come to believe that something slightly different happened - namely that I may have been abducted. (or 'retrieved', as I prefer to put it.)

Anyway, I was asleep, when suddenly I felt an abrupt thump in my chest. I thought that my heart had stopped, and I had died. My immediate reaction was to attempt to leave my body, and I almost did. My spirit exited my dead (?) body, and I was slowly rising up away from it, into and thru the wooden ceiling above me. During the transition, I somehow got stranded in the matter of the wooden ceiling, and got stuck.

Suddenly, three entities appeared to me, took me by the hand, and gently guided me back into my body, which had already grown cold. It felt very heavy, and very cumbersome to be pushed back inside it. The entities were very gentle with me, and seemed to be proud of me. Our communication was not verbal, or even mental, per se, but was more emotional. (I am extremely empathic and psychic.) After making sure I was back inside my own body, they departed, but there was no ship to speak of, just a gentle light.

One other thing: the perception that lingered after their departure was that they were actually me as a man, a boy, and a child with cold hands (the entity who guided me back into my body had cold hands).

Several years after the event, I changed my mind of what may have occurred. I now think that instead of dying, I was accidentally awakened during the aftermath of an abduction event (or I woke up by force, I have often awakened during surgical procedures and fought with doctors who had already anesthetized me). Previous to that occurrence, I had (and continue to have) similar types of events, basically all my life. - MUFON

Invisible Frog

“I'm intrigued by the Frog Man (a case in which a Wisconsin girl encountered a frog-like being in her closet). I hesitate to tell this; but in light of the little girl's experience it doesn't seem so bad. Basically; it was around eight or nine o clock during the summer in Kincardine, Ontario. It would have been around '74,'75. I was lying in the bottom part of a bunk bed set up in my room. My parents were downstairs watching TV. Suddenly, from the wall-side of the bed, from underneath, I hear a very loud, very deep male voice literally say "Riiiiiiii-iiiiiii beeetttttt!" (Ribet, as in the shorthand word used to describe what frogs sound like) all strung out deliberately, almost humorously. It was right beside me. I jumped off and immediately checked under the bed and there was no one there. Feeling freaked out, I ran downstairs and asked my father if he had played a joke on me. He denied this, both parents looking mildly confused but mostly unconcerned. My parents later told me that there had been a succession of 6 families move into and out of that house after we sold it.”

JFK File Still Scheduled For Release

President Trump announced on Twitter that he will allow the release of thousands of classified documents about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy after years of delays.

The unexpected move means the trove of never-before-seen documents are set to be released by the National Archives by Oct. 26.

Congress mandated in 1992 that all assassination documents be released within 25 years, unless the president asserts that doing so would harm intelligence, law enforcement, military operations or foreign relations. The still-secret documents include more than 3,000 that have never been seen by the public and more than 30,000 that have been released previously, but with redactions.

JFK scholars believe the trove of files may provide insight into assassin Lee Harvey Oswald's trip to Mexico City weeks before the killing, during which he visited the Soviet and Cuban embassies. Oswald's stated reason for going was to get visas that would allow him to enter Cuba and the Soviet Union, according to the Warren Commission, the investigative body established by President Lyndon B. Johnson, but much about the trip remains unknown. Read more at JFK assassination: Trump to allow release of classified documents

NOTE: I'm not expecting any 'smoking gun' disclosure. Lon
