It has nothing to do with Santa

Still, it has a mythical creature! 

My daughter Colleen is a senior at the College of Wooster (no...really?  You didn't know that? I haven't wallpapered my blog with her pictures enough?).  All seniors must complete an Independent Study project.  You can only imagine the variety of projects this small liberal arts college turns out each year. 

Colleen - an English major - decided to create a magazine for Ohio outdoor activity enthusiasts.  She's written and organized a number of articles about running, hiking, camping and biking.  But recently she wrote an article about the Southeastern Ohio Bigfoot Investigation Society.  Her adviser encouraged her to submit it to Outdoor Magazine and what-do-you-know, they published it online. 

So you can click over here if you'd like to read about Sasquatch in Ohio.  Yes.  Ohio.  Evidently, Squatch doesn't mind flat, flat land.

  5. Lovely article - being proud of our children's accomplishments is always a wonderful moment - even better than if we had done something wonderful ourselves!

    btw - Ohio is not flat (well maybe compared to PA) lol

  7. She's a trooper! Who knew that they were so close, we might have to take a closer look the next time we're in Ohio.
