.....Idyllwild, California
A very alert Golden Retriever smelled smoke at about 3:00 AM in this mountain town and ran to her owner's bed and roused a very surprised Roger Henlen. Henlen and the dog ran out of their weekend rental cabin at The Idyllwild Inn to alert the inn's owners.

The Retriever, named Lucy was hugged by all as the fire department arrived to keep the now completely engulfed cabin from spreading to nearby pine trees.

Henlen had left the gas oven on for the night for extra heat when the temperatures had dropped during the evening.

The inn's owners who had just lost a whole cabin told Henlen that they had safe electric heaters in the lobby available free to quests. If only he had asked.

Lucy was the lifesaver of the day but she couldn't save the cabin.

Mysterious Pool Party

The following has been passed around to many emails originating from sheriandbuster and we thought all of our site's visitors would enjoy.

These folks were always finding water all over their pool deck and furniture, every time they came home, after being away for a few hours.

They thought the neighborhood kids were waiting for them to leave, and using the pool. However, they could never catch them doing it. So, they set up their video cam and left. This is what they found.
