    So Im sleeping on the couch (my choice) and I hear this loud holler outside the front door. Then it travels around to the bedroom windows waking everyone up.

    I thought of what it could be as I was putting my boots on and grabbing a flashlight to go investigate at 2:30 am:

    A manticore perhaps?:

    Maybe this:

    ATTILA!

    I chased him off the property. How dare he make me think of the other goblins and ghouls and be spooked for the rest of the night.

    [​IMG] Love it! Even the bunny, [​IMG] I guess, living on an army base would be extremely scary sounding! Guess I'd better ask my son, he's at Ft. Eustis! [​IMG]

    Naww, you get used to it. I can sleep like a rock now. When my hubby is out on the range he calls me sometimes to tell me that he was the one who just gave the command to fire. I find low flying helicopters more annoying.
