See this idyllic looking spot?
Lies! All lies! Because while it looks like something fairytale-ish ... wait it actually might still be out of a fairytale, because fairytales all have creepy things in them. As does this spot.
Sam was fishing over there last night, and when he comes back over to the house he's all "Mom, there's something kind of big living under the holly bush, and when I get close to it, it jumps in the pond, and it has a tail." And then I was all: ???? Furthermore, he explains, he can't figure out what it is, it looks more reptilian than furry, and it's big enough to have made a dusty nest under the tree. WTF. We have a giant swimming lizard now? I'll be sure to report back once we have an identification.
