Fontana Village 2018 – Letting Imagination Run


Today I found a shady spot on the porch in front of the ice cream shop to read and proofread yesterday’s post. Like last year, each post will list the date being described, but I will publish each one a week later. What will I learn about Louie today?

Today around lunch time we drove to Robbinsville to buy groceries. first we ate at the Wendy’s and then we went to the Ingles. While we were in the Ingles parking lot I looked at the mountains, trying to stimulate my brain. I thought that if Louie has relatives, then there could be other undiscovered caves inside those mountains. Are they connected with each other?

Some important questions, however, remain unanswered. First, if such creatures did exist here, then they would need to fly around some. They would also need to hunt for food. How would they remain undiscovered? I do not want them to have the ability to turn invisible like Elliot. They could minimize the risk by coming out at night, but eventually someone would see them. Second, what would they eat? There is little if any livestock here. Maybe they could eat wild deer and bears. As long as the overall population is not significantly affected, no one would miss deer or bears . . . unless they were tagged with tracking devices. That would get some scientists’ attention, and they would be excited (or terrified) if they discovered the truth. That opens interesting story possibilities.

At the grocery store I found this shirt for the local high school team. I suppose every on field injury is “just a flesh wound” to their players, and they keep fighting no matter how hard they are hit.

Maybe this bobcat at the lodge saw Louie flying overhead and was afraid it would become food. It looks like it could be looking at the sky.
