This next occurrence began in the fall of 2009. That was the first sighting of Tall Man.
We call this guy tall man because we don't know what else to call him. He's very tall, slim and looks like a living human being.
My husband and I first saw Tall Man as we were about a block and a half away from our house. We had gone out for the afternoon. As we were driving down our street, we noticed a very tall guy crossing right in front of our house. He was wearing a plaid shirt and jeans.
As we parked in the driveway we expected to see him at our front door. Probably someone recruiting for a church. Or maybe even a sales rep of some sort. He wasn't there.
We shrugged it off thinking he was a meter reader. They move fast from house to house. It's not usual to see one come into the yard one minute and be gone the next.
A few months later my oldest daughter and a friend were coming down our street. The sun was going down but it was still light enough outside that they weren't using headlights. They had come to a stop at the stop sign a block from the house when they saw him.
They saw a very tall guy wearing jeans and a plaid shirt. He crossed the street and walked towards the front door. They lost sight of him as he got closer to the house because their view was blocked by our huge tree. However, they did not see him come around the tree, where they would have seen him clearly had he done so.
As they drove down the street closer to the house, they expected to see him at the front door. No one was there.
They got out of the car and walked around our house but didn't see anyone there either.

I know this date for sure because it's my youngest daughter's best friend A's birthday. A and E (youngest daughter) had gone out for lunch and shopping.
It was a little after 5 in the evening when I received a call from E. She said she and A were sitting at the stop sign, a block away. She asked me to come out the front door. When I questioned it she said she wanted me to see something. I opened the door and stood on the step.
She asked if I was outside because she could not see me. I told her where I was. She then said, "Do you see him?" Not waiting for my reply she said, "He's crossing the street. He should be directly in front of the house." There was no one crossing the street in front of my house, in fact I didn't see any of our neighbors outside.
Both girls say as they stopped at the stop sign they saw him standing in the yard across the street from our house (at that time my daughter called me). They say he turned his head and looked straight at them, staring for a minute before crossing the street. He was oddly tall, very slim. Short brown hair. He was dressed in a green plaid shirt and jeans.
There have been at least 3 others (friends) who have seen him. He was wearing the same outfit and crossed the street directly in front of our house. One of those friends said she saw him disappear, right before her eyes, as he was walking up our driveway.
The sightings of him have always been between 5 and 7 in the evening, late fall of 2009 through June of 2010.
