I had some time to get out in the back field tonight. I was picking up pears and apples before the deer moved in to eat them up.. I had a chance also to pick up a few sticks that fall from the winds .. As I was bending down next to this big old tree I heard a snuckle sound.. Hard to put into words.. So its a snuckle. I looked closer and there was this Root Troll who had crawled into a tree root cavern. I walked away like I did not see him.. Went to get my camera because I knew that my friends on RB would never believe my story without proof… Well upon my return I found him fast asleep. I got down real low and pulled the flash up and fired away.. Well he woke up on the first flash and the second caught him good. He started rooting around if you know what I mean so I had to leave before his eyes came back to normal so he could then see.. I did not want him coming up to where I rest and scaring the crap out of me.. I think I am safe putting this up on RB.. He does not look like the type to get online.. Then he may want to fine me for posting his picture without permission.. Please do not ask me to let you come over to take his picture.. I think he helps the deer clean the apples and pears up..

    HAAA!!! Love this and the story. You are courageous: Trolls can hold grudges.

    So wonderful….
