Things are getting really weird

Recommended Posts

Where I live, it’s a 25 mile drive to any major populated area.  On the way home from a doctor’s appointment the other day, about eight miles from the house I spotted something about 10ft off the highway.  I turned around and went back to see, and it was a child’s small stuffed lion, just sitting there, and I had a strange feeling like it was trying to tell me something.   It had rained the day before and the lion was still dry so I knew it hadn’t been there long.  Don’t know why,  I just had this strange feeling, but I picked it up and took it home with me.   I sat it on the dryer as I came in the door. 

This morning, my daughter asked why our great granddaughter’s lion was sitting on the dryer and if she had been there, because she didn’t go anywhere without it.  I told her that was one I found on side of the road but she swore that was the one she gave Marselean (our great granddaughter) or Christmas a year ago.   Marselean lives 25 miles north of where I found the lion and would have no reason to be on the road I found it. 

To settle the argument, we called my granddaughter, Marselean’s mother and asked if Marselean was missing her lion.  Come to find out, she was and had been crying because she couldn’t find it.

My granddaughter and Marselean’s father are divorced and he lives in the town we live in.  Apparently, my granddaughter had to go to the town I had my doctor’s appointment and from there, was going to Marselean’s father’s house.  For some reason, she had to stop on the side of the road where I found the lion to get/do something and apparently it fell out of the car where I found it sitting there.

Now, if that’s not some strange stuff going on, I don’t know what is.  What the heck are the odds of something like that happening.

Something like this happened to my granddad once...*stalls while he thinks up a story* he was in France during the war. France, Ohio working on the railroad. It was about 2 a.m. and granddad had been at work for 16 hours laying down track and inspecting beams. As he and his crew were finishing up a section of the track he looked into the distance toward a shack with a junction and he couldn't believe what he saw. A tall figure with two burning red eyes looking right at him. The figure was carrying a lantern glowing and pulsing a deep blue. Granddad stood there in silence as he heard a whisper in his ear, calling to him to come closer. He started to walk towards the figure, almost zombie like, his brain hypnotized, his body moving as if under some spell. As he got closer the tall figure seemed to get more distant as if he was moving away from it. Finally the bewitchment was gone and Granddad was standing next to the shack. He peered into the dusty window of the old, dilapidated hovel and saw a child's toy. He opened up the door, took two steps inside and stepped on a rusty nail. It later got infected and he lost four toes but they saved the final toe. Weird...yea but at least he kept the pinkie toe.

Moral of the story.....Always watch where you are walking and don't listen to strangers. 

How much longer till spring?

Yes, Way2Slow, that is a spooky story.

 

Glad there was a realistic answer.

 

Only experience I have had was while fishing on the Historic James River by the nuclear power plant just down from Osborne Landing.

 

I had never paid much attention to the metal supports in the river by the plant until one day something told me to start to fish them. I was planning to float by them and head to the water outlet where Hank Parker won the Classic on a spinnerbait. It was just a voice in my ear. Nothing spectacular. Just a voice telling me to throw to those supports. 

 

So I threw my baby brush hog via my spinning rig down to the bottom of each one of the big metal supports as I floated by.

 

And wham! On the last one a four and a half pound bass took my Zoom Junebug trick worm on a shaky head and hit it hard. Scared me to death as I never really thought that those old metal beams would hold anything, especially a bass. I thought it may be a catfish at the time I set the hook.

 

I know this is not to the level of your story but it was weird.

 

I keep listening for another voice to tell me where to fish but so far all I get is that darn Bait Monkey urging me to buy more tackle.

So does that mean you go with "Two Score & seven years ago . . . . ." ?

 

 And Thanks for not asking us to guess the weight.

Always listen to that little voice in your head, it usually don't lie.

Normally, I would have never paid that thing any attention, especially enough to stop, turn around and go back to it.  Then to actually get out of the truck and pick it up, normally that would never happen, but the way it was positioned, it was as though it was looking straight at me and saying please get me.  

Anyway, it made my great granddaughter very happy to get her Leo back.

 

As for the James, never fished that far down very often, but have caught loads of bass on outgoing tides using a flipping stick and dropping the baits right against the downward side of obstructions.  The bass would put there nose almost right against them.

Hard but not impossible. This "Hold my beer!" moment brought to you by the makers of Depends undergarments. We'll all be using them someday.

When I was 19 I was home from college for a few weeks before heading off to play in a Jr. A summer hockey league before school started up again. Just after midnight the phone started ringing and ringing and ringing and no one picked it up.

 

I sat up to grab my bearings and get the phone and in my head I heard my brother's voice saying, "I'm sorry Shawn, I'm sorry." When I picked up the phone it was my father telling me to call our pastor and get to the hospital because my brother had been in a car accident and was in a coma.That was 35 years ago and it still gives me goose bumps.

 

FWIW, to head off any follow up questions my brother did survive but it's not something I like to go into detail about or talk about.

Wow @Way2slow, what are the odds? Irony is not lost, that's for sure.

I think most are born with that inner sixth since, but when young, we don't realize it and fail to develop it.  How many times have you seen or done something and be positive it's something you've seen or done before.  I used to regularly get visions of things that were about to happen and it would freak people out.  I don't know how many times when driving, I would have a vision pop in my head of something I was going to see further down the road.  The first date I had with my now wife, we were driving on the road to my house, (I lived in the country) and told her there's a rattle snake crossing the road about a half mile ahead, it totally freaked her out when a 1/2 mile ahead we came to that rattle snake crossing the road.  I used to do stuff like that all the time, and your friends start giving you that look, and moving away from you when you tell them something is about to happen, and it does. 

I've been saved several speeding tickets by visions of a state patrol or traffic cop running a radar ahead.  When I got to where they were at, it was like I had seen an exact photo of them sitting there. 

I can't count the times I've been at the lake and have something tell me I needed to go to a certain spot, get there and just tear them up where a school will be there feeding.  I've driven as far a 15-20 miles to places that I normally rarely fish and do this. 

The most and big bass I have ever caught was on one of the inner feelings.  A friend and I had been night fishing under a bridge for white bass and stopped to get a little shut eye in the car.  Just as the light was starting to break the horizon, Something kept telling me I need to be fishing a water dog along the rip rap of the road bed at the bridge.  I got my friend up (he knew I got these hunches/visions and trusted them so he didn't complain) and started throwing water dogs.  In the next couple of hours, we caught 28 bass that weighed between six and nine pounds.  Have never had a stringer even close to that again.  I've gotten into schools where we catch 30-50 smaller bass on those hunches, but never a school of big ones like that.  That was also back in the late 60's when Clarks Hill had large numbers of big bass and no where near the fishing pressure they get now. Now, you are lucky to catch one eight pounder a year.

Thousands of things happen to us every day . Every once in awhile something happens and the odds astronomical . An event happened at our house that Mom and Dad thinks was the work of a super natural being. I think it was just one of those things .

Show me one piece of scientific repeatable evidence for anything supernatural and you will have a believer.  Until then I will always believe it is just things that are made up in our own minds to make life just a little more interesting than it really is.

My mom passed away 9 years before my dad did.  One day after my dad passed we were cleaning out his house and trying to figure out what could go to auction and what could be thrown out.

 

I'm going through a stack of things and I hear my mom say to my dad that I was throwing out all of her stuff.  It sounded like she was standing right next to me.  While I was standing there frozen trying to get my head around what I thought I heard, I hear my dad say to my mom so what she didn't need them anymore.  He sounded farther away like he was in a different room.

 

I went walking through the house saying hello but didn't find anything, and nothing else happened.
