Somebody Needs the Wood...

Last week, a severe storm struck the small town of Maryville, Tennessee. A large oak tree was fell in Magnolia Cemetery and the groundskeepers worked on clearing it.

One of them noticed something peculiar about a section of log they lifted up. Ernest Ward claims the cross section bore a striking resemblance to a face. Amused by the discovery, he took it to the Daily Times.

A former worker believes the face is that of a spirit. Others, including The Sun, believe it bears a striking resemblance to Queen Elizabeth.

Be it male or female, royalty or pauper, this story probably will fade into the proverbial woodwork quite quickly... except in a small town with a slow news day.

It sure as heck looks like a face!
And my little author brain has filed this tidbit for a story.
Thanks, Ken.
How do you find these things???
