The Ancient of Ancient Days With Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster

A time when Nessie ruled the hearts of many and were known as the Great Water Protectors of the People

Late Summer howls and yowls, shapeshifter lovers. 

Rain has graced my tame prairie, and the temps are lovely and cool now. Summer had returned with a high-humidity vengeance. Yes, the animal adventures continue. 

I like to hang my laundry out and let the sunlight and breezes do the drying. Well, a few days ago, I was late getting it hung up and since there was no rain I decided to leave it outside, along with the large tub I use, which I'd hung socks on to dry. Anyway, since many were dry I just threw them in the tub. Lo and behold, to my complete surprise, after I'd brought the tub inside the house, and got around to the socks... well, beneath them was one of the tiny lizards that have been here since we moved in, some thirteen years ago. 

They're cute little critters, and not dangerous at all. Poor little thing was scared to death. But I picked up the tub reassuring Little Lizard that he/she was okay and I was returning him/her to the great outdoors. After a bit of talking, Little Lizard calmed right down, and remained calm as I carried the tub outside, then freed him/her. 

Then, almost a week ago, I trekked down to my rural mailbox, and as I turned toward it, I spied the back end of some brown furry critter that had a rather busy tail. Given it was much larger than a mouse--which sometimes inhabits my mailbox--anyway this creature was so darn fast I couldn't see it fully as it dived beneath the foliage in the ditch. In moments, at a fast and furious speed, it circled around the mailbox running desperately into the ditch's water pipe beneath my gravel drive. 

I barely saw the full critter and had no clue what it was...however, a bit of research on the internet and voila! I have a groundhog or what is also called a woodchuck... Yep, brown-furry critter did look like the infamous Punxsutawney Phil 

Groundhog Day

Popular Tradition

Groundhog Day
Groundhog Day is a popular tradition celebrated in the United States and Canada on February 2. It derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog emerging from its burrow on this day sees a shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter …

The Ancient of Ancient Days 
With Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster 

Once upon a  time, the great beast now affectionately called Nessie was a dear and beloved pet-guardian to many in those ancient of ancient days. Yes, hard to believe. Yet, so much of our real history has been lost to entertaining myths -- to the mists of an ancient epoch which has become mere fantastical and magickal legends. This includes Nessie's story.  

However, many types of Nessies, both shapeshifters and beasts, have made their home in the water cave system beneath Wolf Peak Territory. 

A moonlight ride with the Water Dragon Nessie. An invisibility spell by one of the witches of Wolf Peak Territory comes in handy. 

The Nessies are particularly fond of girls and women, and were originally bred-created to protect female humans of the highest psychic-spiritual abilities. 

The Nessies were fearsome enemies of any monstrous sea creature who dared attempt an attack on their human friends. 

From an early age children were encouraged to ride and befriend young Nessies. Treats were always offered. Nessies particularly adored yellow-golden apples. 


On a ride through the magickal lands where fairies flit happily, and where dragonflies dance in the crystalline air. 

Often a besotted man would speak with a Dragon-Guardian Nessie about how to woo the woman he fiercely protected. 

NOTE: Yes ***KNOCK ON WOOD*** I am penning a short story sci fi erotic romance to submit for the antho featured on my last blog. 


Canadian Tourist Has Curiously-Timed Nessie Sighting

Canadian Tourist Has Curiously-Timed Nessie Sighting
A Canadian woman visiting Loch Ness with her family became the latest witness to snap a picture of what may be the site's legendary 'monster.' The ironically-named Lynn Locke was vacationing in Scotland with her husband and daughter when the trio decided to spend a few days at Loch Ness. While they were there, she spotted a strange anomaly about 150 feet from shore.
"I noticed something moving in the water, with trails of bubbles leading up to it," she told a Scottishnewspaper, "it went under the water a couple of times and reappeared." Having long heard tales of the Loch Ness Monster, Locke decided to snap a few photos of the oddity to document the weird sighting. Although her family was skeptical that she'd really seen the famed cryptid, Locke was more open-minded and mused, "I do think I saw Nessie – maybe the tail."
What makes her encounter particularly intriguing is that it actually occurred on the very same day that a schoolgirl happened to also spot something strange in the waters of Loch Ness and snapped a picturethat has been hailed as the 'best photo' of the creature in years. The distance between the two sightings measured about 12 miles and the time between the encounters was only a few hours, suggesting that perhaps the two witnesses had actually seen the same thing that day. What exactly they may have seen, of course, remains a matter of speculation.
