    Bigfoot Shows Himself

    I was in the backyard of the house and was walking around enjoying the outside and I looked into the woods and I saw eye shine about seven to eight feet off of the ground. I knew it had to be either an owl or what I refer to as the Big Hairy Man. I […]

    Fishing Lessons With My Dad

    Growing up my dad and brothers loved to go fishing. We would gather up a bunch of worms, get a few cans of corn, load up a bunch of fishing poles and go to a creek, a pond, the beach or anywhere we could wet a hook. We did it for sport and rarely ever […]

    Spirit Chronicles: The Whistler In the Woods

    I was outside in the woods recently and kept hearing movement around me but couldn’t see anything or anyone. I grew up in North Carolina in the country and I know the birds, animals and sounds of the woods around here. This was a distinct whistle and not one that sounded like any bird I […]

    Americana: Dirt Road Diary
