Pam & Rocky Get Buzzed by a Black Helicopter

So I'm walking my dog out at Asylum Lake Nature Preserve, over by the prairie, and along comes a HUGE black helicopter, flying low enough for me to see that it has no markings.

It flew past us, then circled back, hovered right over us, circled again, hovered again, and then took off slowly to the west.

It would be cool to imagine this had something to do with UFOs, but I think it had to do with some National Guardsman learning to fly a big Chinook helicopter and wanting to check out a big Alasksan Malamute trotting alongside the prairie.

Have you seen this dog?
Later, driving home from our walk, I saw the helicopter parked at the National Guard amory.

Tons of cars were parked by the side of the road checking it out. I don't know what was going on, but it caused a small stir in the neighborhood.

Chinook helicopters are HUGE. (So are Malamutes.)

I am still all tingly over having this X-Files moment, right here in Michigan.

The truth is out there, kids.

Let me know if you find it and I'll blog about it.
