100 years ago, in the small town of Belle Vernon, PA., there was a farm called Cook's farm. A man worked there, and lived in a farm house for his rent on the farm. He would go about his normal day and do his work and go back to his house. One day he randomly dissapeared.
In the 1980's the local fire department used the house he lived in for simulating real life situations if a fire were to occur. So when the house was too burned to use aanymore they were going to burn the rest of the house. In the beasement they found a human skeleton. This skeleton was over 100 years old, thus Old Man Hick.
One day in the fields I put our cattle back in the barn and on my way back down the hill, the cattle came barreling down the hill. When I got them back in and I investigated what happened, I saw that the latch that closed the gate had been open, but I know that I closed it. Another day I was on top of my hill on the farm and my tractor started up on its own and started driving away then stopped. I ran down the hill and saw that the key had been sitting on the seat, but the tractor was obviously running.
I have annual camp outs on my farm, and when your out side and look on top of the highest hill you can see him standing there. Note HE IS ALWAYS ABOVE YOU. I tried to tell myself that I was not seeing it but when I walked up to the top, he was gone.
One night I saw him on the hill with an object in his hand it was a knife, that was the only time he has ever had a knife in his hand, so when I went to sleep and when I woke up the knife was laying next to me.
Ever since that day I have respected Old Man Hick.
