I have a lot of experiences that I have attributed to my brother-in-law, Rocky. I had an extremely vivid dream about having a conversation with Rocky when everything started to happen and so I assumed he was fooling with us on a regular basis. Today I was thinking of submitting a story and I realized that maybe all of these experiences aren't caused by Rocky. Some things I truly feel are Rocky's doing, other things - I'm just not so sure. I thought I would call this one 'part 5' but from now on I'll just relate the things that happen around my home. There is still the same tone of playfulness to the things that happen.
On, or around, June 14 2007, I went up to bed to read before going to sleep. I got all settled in with my book and just started to read when I heard this weird static buzzing sound. It was just really quick, like half a second, enough to get my attention. I thought it came from outside because I couldn't identify what the sound was. I went back to reading.
A short time later I heard the same sound and again shortly after that. I realized it sounded like the noise my alarm clock makes when I switch it on and push the button quickly past the radio setting. I didn't see how that could be because I wasn't anywhere near the clock. It was summer holidays so I didn't have to get up early to get the kids off to school. I hadn't even been using my alarm so I figured I either imagined the sounds or they must have been from outside. I just let it go as one of those things and put it out of my mind.
On June 16, I was asleep and had been for a while when suddenly my alarm clock/radio started blaring music. It scared the heck out of me because I had been sleeping peacefully and it was such a rude awakening. The first thing I did was look at the clock, it just registered in my mind that it was after 2:30am. I jumped up and grabbed the clock to turn it off, at first not thinking, just wanting it to shut up. Then I realized that it was playing music, which was very odd because I have never had the clock set to music, always to buzzer. I tried every switch and button on the clock but nothing was even turned on. Not one of the buttons was on. I turned the radio channel dial, the volume dial and flicked switches off and on and yet it still kept blaring music. Finally I had to unplug it to make it stop, which it did.
After I settled down from being scared out of my sleep, I started to think about what had just happened and I saw how weird it really was.
First thing odd was that being summer holidays I didn't have my alarm turned on at all. Also odd was that my alarm was set at 6:35am if it were to go off and this happened, like I said, at sometime after 2:30am. Another odd thing was that I have never had my alarm set to music wake and never ever even used the radio setting to listen to music.
At that point in time I was the only person who ever went into the bedroom, my husband's back had flared up and he wasn't able to climb the stairs. He was sleeping on the day bed on the main floor, had been for at least a week before this happened and probably for 2 weeks after as well. He was in bad shape.
My kids never went into my room, they had no reason to and even if they did, they are too old to fool around with things like that. Not to mention that their bedroom is down in the basement. They would be far too lazy to head up 2 flights of stairs just to screw around with my clock. I had unplugged the clock in order to make it shut off and never plugged it back in. When I did need an alarm, once school started up again, I used a different clock. Honestly, I didn't trust that one anymore.
Maybe it was Uncle Rocky, I had thought he was responsible for all of the odd things that happened, and there has been a lot and I still have more to tell, but now that I think about it - I wonder...
Thanks so much for reading my story, I hope you enjoyed it. I have some more things to tell (when I get the time) and things seem to happen every now and then. That's why I keep a running journal and am so specific with some of the dates, I write them down when they happen.
Anyway, thanks for taking the time!
