Luckily I had my phone and my camera so I could document these sightings. I wonder if I could sell them to the National Enquirer or maybe World News.
Thursday, I attended a benefit concert at the local high school. The auditorium was packed. Not so unusual, but the site that greeted us on stage was. The performers all seemed a little different. Here are a couple of the performances, so you can judge for yourself. (Sorry for the poor quality, but not expecting what I saw, I only had my trusty Droid to capture the occurence.)
These two visitors decided to come home with me. Luckily they are kind of cute and seem very bright.
On Saturday, I was participating with my daughters in a benefit race for their school. The thought was that this would be a good test race for me before my big race this Saturday and would hopefully convince my girls that I wouldn't die in Grafton. I guess the name, The Monster Mile, should have given me a clue that this would not be an ordinary race. We were greeted by all sorts of strange characters at the check-in station and a few of them even raced with us.
I think for a first time, the girls and I did okay. Emily even managed to sneek up and scare her dad after finishing the race.
And then there was Monday. But now I was prepared. I knew what to expect. Besides, the calendar let me know that it was Halloween, the day the monsters do come out to play. So I was not at all surprised to attend a choir concert at the Elementary School and see this:
I guess knowledge that I was documenting of these peculiar sightings spread, because I did receive the following photos.
After so many days of being surrounded by all these strange guests, I was saddened yesterday to find that they had all disappeared. But as these little visitors said, "It's a small world." I look forward to seeing them again next year. Besides, I understand that an overly large elf is getting ready to come visit in just a few weeks.
