Lassie, Animals and Eagles help Werewolf escape California

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. It’s Monday morning, and after catching up with the weekend web world we can’t be bothered creating anything new, so here’s a fantastic Werewolf of Oz episode, making up for the last one, which was rather unsubstantial. Grey likes this one too, after the last one brought back bad memories.

P.S. Including all the images has taken up more time and brainpower than envisaged, leaving us feeling quite drained! And still an hour or two ’til lunchtime…


Lassie, Lassie, is that you Lassie? I was in turmoil, and Lassie was bouncing around my mind like it leapt along mountain passes when at its Hollywood peak. Lassie, Lassie, where are you leading me? Lassie, Lassie, what are you trying to tell me? Lassie, Lassie, can I trust you, or are you a false guide?

Animals tell me to Leave Latham

My mind saw Lassie in a musical band with other animals I’d met on my journey. The Hollywood dog was on vocals; Vombat the wombat on guitar; Digger the dingo on bass, and Dolly the dolphin on drums.

When I heard them singing We Just Gotta Get Out Of This Place I thought there was a message in there somewhere, but I couldn’t quite grasp it… until I got it… Lassie was trying to lead me out of Latham.

Lassie’s Message not Nonsense

Lassie’s message inspired me to crawl out of bed and attempt to leave. I was shocked to see the foyer was full of my lookalikes. I asked one how long it had been here. It said it arrived one day after me. Was it the one I saw having the same experience as me? I couldn’t tell. I asked another. It said it arrived two days after me. Yes, the next one said three days after me.

I guessed the next one would say four days, but didn’t want to investigate further; I just wanted to leave. I stumbled toward the door. It opened first time to my relief and surprise. I emerged into sunshine having escaped Latham’s Hotel California.

The same Eagles that had led me to the hotel were flying above. Didn’t the Eagles band sing about not being able to leave a Hotel California? It was quite a coincidence if they did.

I found the road leading in a northerly direction and started walking. The Eagles seemed to follow me. It looked a long road out of Latham, but after a few hours I could see the town no more.

Eagles’s Hotel California Theme and Updated Theme

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Great news, it’s another Werewolf of Oz day… so we don’t have to do any deep thinking! Actually, we just did, because we updated our titles. We hope you like them, as well as this latest episode of the greatest Werewolf of Oz story ever… and possibly THE great Australian novel…


I awoke still on the edge of Latham. I was beginning to think I only existed in Latham.

Viewing Latham from the Other Side

Hunger and thirst finally inspired my return to the town centre. The sign was the right way round this time, clearly spelling out: LATHAM.

As I returned to where I’d been before, I saw the same people playing football. Their ball went flying off the pitch to the other side, landing at the feet of what looked like another me. The ‘other me’ kicked it back, before talking with the players. Then they all went to the same pub we’d frequented.

Eagles and the Hotel California

I felt perplexed, and thought I’d better find somewhere to chill out and get my mind right. I looked up into the hazy midday heat. A couple of eagles seemed to be leading me somewhere; waving their wings in a southerly direction.

I followed them until they flew down and rested on a hotel called California. I thought it was a strange name for an establishment in Western Australia, but I suppose it isn’t that extraordinary really. I rented a room and went straight to bed.



Getting the mind right is another Cool Hand Luke theme.
The strange events in Latham were probably inspired by shows like The Prisoner, Twin Peaks, Lost and American Gothic.
