  • Fortunately for the town of Lathrop, the flying saucer that smacked into the local Tower Mart disgorged nothing but fun-loving aliens and green plasma.

  • The Tower Mart is a grocery store/convenience chain store close to the interstate ribbon that ties Sacramento and San Francisco to LA through the flat, dull central valley of California.

  • I-5 has a speedy 80mph kind of pace, so most passers hurtling by never notice the 30 foot diameter saucer sticking halfway out of the sloping roof of the Mart.

  • Inside, it's even crazier -- saucer men are everywhere scuttling along counters in every aisle, squeezing milk cartons and extracting the yolk from all the eggs.

  • The other half of the saucer is visible poking through a blistered hole in the ceiling, the craft badly damaged.

  • And why should they? The locals hardly notice now.

  • Then John got antsy and began decorating his patio with pieces of brass, marbles, rocks and buttons.

  • Then he tore up the lawn and replaced it with similar glittery debris.
