Happy Ratcatcher's Day! Also called Pied Piper Day, it can be observed on either the 22nd or 26th of June, depending on whether you're using the Brothers Grimm or Robert Browning date for the day the Pied Piper led the children of Hamelin away. Thank your local ratcatcher!

Happy birthday to the Dalby Spook, that haunter of Cashen's Gap, the one and only Gef the Talking Mongoose. At some point he divulged that he "was born near Delhi on June 7, 1852." Since he's basically a ghost, I'm sure he's still celebrating. Happy birthday 🎂Gef!

Today on the blog, my final thoughts on clowns (I hope) with my somewhat silly account of clown synchronicity. Because, when dealing with such a thing, being a bit silly about it seemed the only way to proceed...

Nessie-a-Day Entry #2 is up - The Loch Gets Wilder! April 19th will mark 85 years since the famous Surgeon's Photograph of Nessie was taken, so I'm writing an entry a day on my favorite cryptid until then.
