GOOD OLE COUNTRY FENCES #8


Hey ya'll!
Today I'm joining up with  Run*A*Round Ranch Report to share some country fence photos.
(Click on the photos to view in large file size.)

I traveled up to West Virgina yesterday, looking for some good ones, but oddly, these cute fence pictures came right from about 2 miles from my home, here in KY.
Guess it's true. "The grass isn't always greener on the other side."
- Ricky Gervais




But since I did travel up to West Virgina, I thought I'd still share a quick photo from there.
Heard of the Moth Man?
I hadn't until 1994 on a night I wish I'd stayed home...
Whether you believe in things like this or not, I'm not trying to persuade you one way or the other.
I just know what I saw.
And I don't really want to go into details about it...
I just got a cold chill.
But this depiction is about 90% accurate.

 It wasn't scary being there by a man made likeness of it.  But when I pass the place I did see it here in KY, I still get creeped out!

And they also have a good mini-museum dedicated to detailed sightings, a bridge collapse, Men in Black and various other related interests of this creature.

See ya'll next time!

 Thanks again to Good Fences for the linkup!

    1. Hi TexWisGirl, yes we still have tons of green everywhere. But I've noticed we already have some leaves gathering in the pool and such. So it won't be long till the brown creeps up on us too.

    1. Hi Christine!
      Maybe I should've put a warning in the title too, "good fences and a creepy story," lol just as a warning. Sorry didn't mean to freak you out though.

  8. You are kidding me, right? A Moth man. Wow, well, that's a first for me.

    1. Hi Lantane, I wish I was kidding. So many townspeople and such saw this thing between a 13 month span, to the day, before their towns bridge collapse, (the bridge was inspected and concluded it faulted because of the 13th connector oddly.) So with that wide time span, it allowed for many eye witness stories. Not counting the many like mine that they have never heard of.

    1. Hi Bruce! Yes it does, doesn't it. I often think back and try to picture the ole' farmers that first put these up. That'd be some cool photos to see, wouldn't it?

    1. Hi! Yes, I know. It has been around 20 years now and I still think about it when I am by myself, going outside after dark or mainly just when I pass the area I saw it. Weird feeling that I do not ever feel that will go away.
