I'm just south of Houston .
It's fairly rural here where I'm at .
lol , man , about 14 -15 years ago I had walked out back behind the shop right at sundown .
I have a bunch of huge live oaks all over the property and it backs up to the headwaters of Chocolate Bayou so it's nothing but woods behind me
Twilight , and I was a bit baked
, standing there zoning out with a cigarette , and out of the corner of my eye I saw what looked like a little spaceman wearing a round space helmet standing about 40 feet from me near the trees .
" Uuhhh , what in tha ... oh , it's an owl " lol .
I was a bit freaked out there for a few seconds .
There's a damn alien spaceman in a silver spacesuit standing in my yard !
A pair had 2 offspring maybe 4 years ago up in one of the oaks on the east fence line .
One of the owlets was on the ground out there during the day -- couldn't get the flying thing figured out .
I had to keep the dogs in until it was back up in the canopy .
Ah , it wasn't that long ago .
evidently April of 2019 :
