It has been awhile since I posted a story, but we have had two encounters in the last 2 months. The first is with my wife as she got up early in the morning on a weekend and made coffee. The rest of us were still sleeping. It was dark out and all was quiet in the house when she heard a man's voice say "Dylan". She turned to look and no one was there. This freaked her out, as I have heard his voice in a previous story. Many of us have experienced hearing our own name being said in by an unseen voice, but this was the name of her son, and he was sleeping.
Then just last weekend before Memorial weekend I was on the couch at 10 at night watching the news. Everyone else was in bed sleeping. I started to drop off a little and close my eyes during a commercial. I was still awake but kept my eyes closed while the news came back on. Then suddenly I felt a knuckle tap hard on the top of my head that made me jolt up fully awake to see no one around. My first thought was that I was sleeping and jolted out of it, but my head hurt. I could feel the throbbing on the top of my head. Something for real hit me.
Then I notice what was on TV. They were doing a spot on the news of a haunted theater in a town close by. I finished the end of it and my thoughts turned to the Whistler, what I call our traveling ghost, that often comes back here and I believe he wanted me to watch this and saw I was falling asleep, so he woke me. Just my theory, but I cannot explain the throbbing from the hard knock on my head.
