My mother said she just had a feeling and from the noises they were making that she thought they were evil. Now my other great grandmother that saw them said they were going into a neighbors house. Guess she thought they were up to no good.
Also, most of these people are extremely religious. Anything unexplainable would be either angelic or demonic.
About 10-12 years ago, there existed an incredible paranormal website that featured a similar story.
I cannot recall the name of the site and I've looked in archives like The Wayback Machine.
I'm gonna find that site info!
Anyhoo, this story was told by a guy who claimed to be a retired Oklahoma state trooper. It had an air of believability about it, and I think I have a good b.s. detector. He said if he had told the story to anyone while he was still working for the highway patrol, it may have cost him his job. He also said that others had seen these creatures.
He drove a stretch of highway that was mostly rural, desert-like area. It passed through a couple towns, and on the outskirts of the southernmost town, there was an expanse of mostly-abandoned oil drilling rigs. People referred to the area as 'the oil leases'.
He claimed that on several occasions, he saw a bunch of small, humanoid type creatures 'playing' around the old oil rigs and equipment. They would be jumping and cavorting to such an extent that they literally 'bounced around'.
It was always early evening when he saw them, just after sunset. Like the creatures in the OP, they seemed to have a white or very light green glow about them. Another story described very similar creatures supposedly living near the Superstition Mountains in Arizona.
The trooper said on a couple of the sighting occasions, he had swung his car off the road into the area where the creatures were, and they ran off into the desert or ran behind the rig equipment and disappeared in an instant.edit on 14-1-2014 by ColeYounger because: (no reason given)

thanks for sharing, love stories like this.
it's a shame though because you describe how when these experiences happened the land was not nearly as developed as it is now. It makes me think that if you went to the area today to possible have an experience yourself they would not be there because of the increase in population. It seems that creatures such as this enjoy living in mostly uninhabited pieces of land. But, it makes me wonder if perhaps now they may have moved to land still in that local but more remote. The way any species is gradually pushed away once land it inhabits starts getting developed or overly-developed. I wonder if they'll pop up again for someone else to see...
