The grues are flying

Post by Myriam on Mon Oct 07, 2013 9:05 pm

Tonight at approx 21:30hrs I heard some grues flying over, debating loudly over the route to take, as they would. I do not know how many. I heard them as I was coming out of the front door and they were already passing, perhaps 50.

Then, all of a sudden, the military planes came over very loudly and very low, it frightened the hell out of me as I pannick with loud noises since I was very close to a bomb attack in the East End of London in the nineties (the one after the ceasefire, on the Isle of Dogs). Anyway, when the military planes had gone (half an hour later), so had the grues. Hope it did not disturb them.

Has anyone else heard them tonight? Looks like we're in for an early winter?

Absolutely superb film, despite all the poetic licence. I've only watched it a couple of dozen times.

Don't you wave those bloody spears at me!!!
The Grue flew over us last night in Troche, not too many, but a lovely invisible noise, it had not crossed my mind that they would fly in total darkness, makes my Tom Tom look amateurish.
