Sightings Of The Creature: From the newspaper, the Cape Codder:
I was working as a young reporter on the Hartford Courant that year when World War II was in the wings. But we were preoccupied with the developing story about this Glastonbury creature that howled at night, slipped in and out of view and caused dogs, cats and small farm animals to disappear. As the sightings grew in number, so did the variety of descriptions. First it was a huge cat. Then some people reported what looked like a dog in back and a cat in front. Others saw it vice-versa. One man called to say he had seen a big animal in the pitch dark with eyes that glowed like embers. It was clear to us that this weird, unknown animal needed a name. One editor coined the word, Glawackus. "Gla" for Glastonbury; "wack" for wacky; and "us" as a proper Latin ending. It caught on like magic.
A safari was organized with two Ozark-trained hounds. The search came back empty-handed. The event, however, was memorialized in verse:
"Say did the fearless hunters, Pick up the beastly spoor, While trekking through the jungle, With steps alert and sure?" DOG CONFESSIONS
A balmy but warm 75F today. A small breeze but warm first thing when I got up. Had to take photos and video of the mums and garden, so amazingly in bloom with this warm weather. Cut down the dead branch that has been bugging me for months...yeah!
