Wednesday's column noted the "raining" fish in Marksville. In 1956, Fay Swanson noticed a Philippine monkey flopped over her closeline in San Mateo, CA. Authorities determined it couldn't have fallen from a passing plane. Other October events include a three-pound, foot-long white marble cylinder hitting a farm in Waterville, Ohio. Wallace Baker reported that an 18-inch chain landed on his bulldor in Missouri, in 1959. Grady Honeycutt, fishing on a five acre lake in North Carolina, reported a luminous sphere, moved through the sky, dropping water on his boat and disintegrated. Ivar Quigley experienced a 9-iron falling from the sky in Killarney, Ireland. It blasted through a window at the Golden Nugget Pub, hitting Bernie the Plumber.
