  1. The old saying “Truth is stranger than fiction”… It’s springtime here and we are experiencing happy birds, beautiful blossom, and the occasional python sliding across our back garden. Wishing you a colourful autumn šŸ™‚

  2. I did see the story on the man in a search party who found out he was looking for himself. Wish I could think up something fictional that was as crazy as that. What a great Blog post it would make!

  3. Love your strange news post. It is rather inspiring. So much fun. I heard of skeletons posing as passengers for the carpool lane before. Hahaha. However all the other ones are new to me.
