We have been in New Mexico for a few days now, and I have to tell you, there’s something spooky about this place…
Our campground is just outside the city of Roswell. Have you ever heard of this place? Apparently it became pretty famous after the “incident” of 1947.
What “incident” you ask?
Supposedly nobody really knows… Or do they?
Well, I am only a Josie, but let me tell you that there are a few things that I know. And I am willing to tell you, whether people want me to or not.
So it all started with a walk to the lake. The “bottomless” lake.
How can a lake be bottomless? Yup – spooky.
I still can’t get over all the smells around here. And boy are there a lot of other dogs too. It has been driving me CRAZY that I haven’t been able to meet them all! But I see them. And their people. They are all over the place. I wonder if any of them have made the same discovery as me. I don’t think so, because nobody is talking about it.
So as I was saying… it started with a walk to the “bottomless” lake. The water was super clear, which is super cool. And it tasted really good too.
One thing I’ve learned around here is to drink lots of water! Mama’s always pushing the bowl of water on me, and for once I am so thankful! I’ve been gobbling it down!
Back to the lake! I was exploring around the lake with Mama, and there were lots of buildings set up for people to relax in the shade on really hot days. Well, as we went around these buildings… I saw it.
At first I just stopped and stared. There was really something spooky about this tower right in front of me. Something so spooky I just didn’t know what to do with myself! So of course I had to go a little Josie crazy!
This tower was pretty tall, but I was not intimidated! I tried my hardest to climb up that tower! But I was having no luck! So of course I started barking at it!!
Mama let me explore and explore all the way around the tower. Boy was it intriguing!
I think Mama thought I was a little crazy! And I mean a little more crazy than I normally am! She couldn’t figure out why I was about to attack the tower!
She tried telling me there were no squirrels up there. She tried telling me there were no animals at all…
But I know that tower has a secret! And I was trying everything I could to protect Mama from that tower!
I don’t know why she was so reluctant to believe me that something was wrong… doesn’t she know what happened around here in 1947?
As we walked away from that tower, back to our camper, I stopped several times to turn around and growl at that tower… just so it knew that I was here, and I was watching it!!
Don’t worry Mama… I’ll protect you from those green guys! I am officially on watch. I have the scarf and everything!!
