    Lived on Galiver cutoff rd. where it turns to treywick rd. in 2004. Wife was at work had no phone at around 11:00 pm at night. Had a 100 ft x 100 ft garden , moon light very dull, some star light had been outside on front porch only a nightlight inside , my eyesight was adjusted to the light. the kids where asleep. Only by looking into the dark at the right moment and exact place, just like when you see a shooting star ya know you will never see it unless it was meant to look right at it.Anyway, I give my word with the Good Lord as my witness of being a truthful man and with great eyesight seen what I have seen in pictures of a humanoid upright creature with gray ish color on face to chest which allowed me to see it in the dark, standing by a row of peas. The arch of the ground to where i was standing a couple hundred feat away looking eye to eye I figured to be at least 8 to 9 feet tall. I had 4 rows of peas with a row of grass on the outside edge of garden. We had picked peas a lot with a lot of snaps left. Well one day afterward there were only plants left not tracks between rows as if deer or small game had gotten them but for a 9 foot creature could have reached them all without going into garden. Weeks before I spoke with someone that had seen something on Hwy 87 between milton and navarre, fl. During that time my wife and I sat on the porch late one night and hears a great rushing wind and a great crack of a tree breaking in the calmest of nights , I ahave heard that they may communicate by hitting trees with great force with other objects. My father always had a notion to beleive in them.
