They walk among us.”


Hey guys, check this out.

This is my new cowan drag.


Pretty good, hunh? Makes me look just like a cowan, doesn't it?

Oh, hey, and listen to this.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
