My Brother Still Guides Me on 2017-11-02

The last two memories I've shared have been frightening and negative. I thought I would skip ahead about fifteen years and share something that fundamentally changed me. Literally saved my life. It is very positive. Prepare to have warm and fuzzies. My husband and I have two children. When I had ...

Father Knows Best on 2017-10-10

In my first story, My Mother's Poodle, I was age eleven. This time I'll share one from my twelfth year. I grew up in Pittsburg, Ca. I have four brothers and no sisters. My father and mother were and are still together - 59 years strong. For fun, on weekends our entire family used to go for hikes up ...

My Mom's Poodle on 2017-10-03

Although I have experienced paranormal events - great and small - all my life, I've never written them, or discussed them openly unless I felt compelled and safe to do so. People don't treat the topic lightly and some get very upset. If it meets the approval of the readers here I will share some of ...

I actually think that 9 foot is a typo. The 9 is right above the six on a numeric keypad. Probably poor editing rather than ignorance or lying. I am confused about why anyone would go out ghost hunting in a storm, much less an electrical storm, but it sounds like the writer was pressured into it. Young people are prone to that influence. So a young writer with poor editing? I don't doubt in the slightest the author saw something, but without photos I couldn't say what. I'd like to pass on a lesson I learned fairly young. Don't disturb the dead or their places of rest. They get tetchy about such things. Keep exploring dear writer, just keep it respectful and safe.

Jubeele I hope Chuffed means amused or something positive to you. To me a chuff is a sound a large animal makes in the back of it's throat and out through its mouth, almost like a cough.:) He is as protected as he will allow. He is heavily immersed in Christianity and like my mother, now avows anything outside of it as devil worship. He prays for my soul and I thank him every day for it.

EmmalineTexas - Thank you for the information. Wiccan? Interesting, I never knew. I am half tempted to ask my dad how he knew it, but... Yeah not going there.

Jubeele - thank you, I like your name, it makes me think of a dark starry sky lit by explosions of red, gold and green fireworks, sparklers glowing in the streaks as children wave them excitedly, and the a cool breeze on a hot summer night.

My brother has given me permission to discuss my memory of the conversation, but nothing else. As it is not a verified, first person account I am not entirely comfortable discussing it. Also, I think He is very smart to not open that door. A young man, my brother's best friend, died because of that incident.

Babygoatpuller - Thank you for the kind comment. Sorry for the delay, I've been out of town for work. I'm glad you enjoyed this little memory. To be honest, the way he said it told me I really didn't want to know and I never asked. I never will because sometimes ignorance is bliss. *blushes at the favs add. Thank you again.

EmmalineTexas - Thank you for commenting. Isn't it funny how so many people from that era, and their children recognize these behaviors? Still, he may be a disciplinarian, but I wouldn't change him for the world. My father is very sensitive and attributes his survival in Vietnam and Korea to that sensitivity. He never discussed it with me, but it was an not-talked-about fact that he is connected more deeply to the 'other' plane. He was always careful to be respectful of the dead and he never gave a reason why, but I can guess, you see he grew up next door to a cemetery. Also his brother, my uncle, was actively practicing what my mother called devil worship. Our family had a falling out over it, so I never really knew exactly what Jim was into, but as he is the person I and my father used to see in 2 places at once (ie out on the porch and asleep on the couch) I think it is safe to say he was very gifted.

Lady_Glow - Thanks for the compliment. I can't really say. I tend to accept things and not question, especially in relation to my uncle. The pendent is carved with what is either a maze or a spiral shell. I don't really know. There isn't really a center to the maze/shell and there is no exit, only dead ends after the entrance. Is it religious? No clue. Dad carved it, uncle took it for a few days, and it was back by the weekend.

AugustaM - I am not sure about monster. Probably just a careless kid. To the best of my knowledge no other pets were shot with BB guns in the entire time I lived in the neighborhood.
It's actually not so odd, at least not for me. It tends to be a recurring theme for me. For example, before I went into the military, I was working as a hostess at a Denny's. This couple with their two kids came in and for some reason, instead of asking if they wanted coke or milk, I asked if they wanted Roy Rogers or Shirley temple. NOT normal for a Denny's menu at all. The lady literally went white and looked like she was going to cry. She excused herself to the bathroom, the gentleman asked why I offered those drinks. I said I didn't know, it just seemed right. Then he explained that they had just came from her mother's funeral. When she was young, her mother used to take her out to have a Roy Rogers or Shirley Temple. It was their bond.
So action/reaction seems to happen a lot. I still don't know about WHY I asked as I never had and never did again, but I just accept and move on.
Thank you for the kind welcome.

Kest, I have no idea if it still happens. My family left that house some years ago. It actually makes me sad to think that it might, that Squidgem might be an 'abandoned' pet.

Thank you for your comment lady-glow. Residual or not, I could have done without seeing it. I am working on my next post. It should be submitted in the next two days or so.

You are welcome - my pleasure.

Thank you for your comment, L_Melb. I agree, it was most likely a residual view, and yes, violence is ugly. I genuinely believe whoever shot the BB gun didn't mean to kill him. Remember BB guns were common and not considered lethal back at that time. The person who shot him probably thought it would bounce off or maybe do a hard bite.
