Weird Encounters As I Travel Along

I don't know many weird things about my area... I know a few ghosts stories but will save for another time. I have seen some strange things in my travels around the U.S. and Canada including a "almost Moose"....


After several weeks in Maine and 3 days traveling in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and PEI, my daughter Becki and I were on our way back to Maine... it was late, it was dark and there was not a house or light in sight... suddenly I heard Becki ask "Did you see that animal back in the ditch?"

NO, was it dead? I asked. "No it was eating grass" she replied.
What did it look like? I asked... "Sorta like a horse" she replied.

It's a Moose I screamed and looked for the first turn around.... We drove back, excited, high on the thought of finally seeing a Moose and there it was... a Shetland Pony hobbled along the roadside!

A photo of one of the weirdest things I've ever seen for sale.....

Certainly a weird instrument. Somehow it "rings a bell" though that I've seen something similar before... Hm? Someone's pictures from a museum or art exhibition I think...

Do I see what I see? I think I used them when I was recovering from my surgeries, and found it really to use when you are lying down in bed. LOL

They down make music of another kind. LOL

Would you buy this guitar? I think I won't, reminds too much of my hospital days. LOL
