Is it a Bird, a Plane, Santa's Sleigh or a UFO?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A perfectly reasonable couple say they saw a Christmastime UFO in the skies over Whidbey Island last week.


Evidence suggests that the unidentified object was likely not an ungulate-drawn sled driven by the fat man of wintertime lore.

The timing was wrong, the color was wrong and no jingling bells were heard."

Whidbey News

It wasn`t Santa`s sleigh and it wasn`t a UFO Mothership, but I bet if an investigative journalist visited Christine and Lenny Laing, he would discover that the elderly couple have a penchant for getting drunk on Christmas eggnog.

The Laings should report their sighting to NORAD or MUFON, NORAD tracks Santa and MUFON tracks sightings of flying saucers.

I hope con artists don`t book airplane tickets to Whidbey Island, old folks who see UFO`s are prime targets for flimflam artists.

The New Year is almost here, but don`t worry my faithful readers, I will continue to chronicle the folly of besotted folks who see flying saucers.
