Hanging out with some friends last night I mentioned the new Un solved mysteries podcast. I’ve never got into podcasts Until I heard about this one mentioned on a radio commercial the other day. Three episodes out so far, growing up watching the show I was more than intrigued. I’ve listened to them all but so far the most interesting one was the Ball Cemetery episode. It’s a cemetery in rural nebraska and people have been buried there since the mid/late 1800’s. No spoiler alerts here, but a handful of interesting stories to say the least that have allegedly happened to some folks there. One thing led to another hanging out with my friends and after we started talking, some interesting stories were shared by things that have happened to us. As far as me personally I’ve had a few weird things happen that I can’t explain. One being a gal I was dating lost a family member. I hadn’t met the guy but he left behind a young daughter (about five at the time) and I had gone to the funeral. I lost my dad at the same age and it brought back some not so great memories seeing her stand up their viewing her dad. Not long after he passed we were sitting around the girlfriends house and the smell of a cigar just over took the kitchen. This wasn’t a faint smell, this was like somebody lit a whole box of them. It lingered around for a minute or so and then just disappeared. There were a few of us sitting there, her and her dad said that smelled like so and so’s cigars! Guess he smoked cigars regularly. Ok that’s weird I thought! Couple months went by and his wife wanted to sell his Harley she had in the shed. He hadn’t rode it in quite a while so she asked me if I wanted to buy it. So I eventually get time and go over one evening to check it out. I get it out of the shed knock the dust off and try to start it, the battery is dead. I check the battery and it was pretty old. I told her it’s probably best to just get a new battery, the lights would hardly come on. She agreed and I went to go get one. When I came back with the new battery I tried it once more for whatever reason and the damn thing started. That’s strike two for weirdness with all this! So I ended up buying the bike and a little while after I had it I got a call from the GF. She said hey nobody is home but can you swing by my house and pick something up for me. She was at work or somebody else’s house I don’t remember exactly. I was out on the bike so I ride over. I go through the garage and into the kitchen, same kitchen were we smelled the cigar smoke. Took my keys and change out of my pocket and sat it on the hutch in the kitchen. I go to her room to look for whatever it was and was gone a few minutes. I come back out to grab my keys and change. My keys are there but my change is gone. Now I’ve got this total WTF feeling going one like why does this weird stuff keep happening. That was the last weird thing that ended up happening with that whole ordeal. I’ve lost various family members and haven’t had anything weird happen after losing them. The only thing I can say is one of my grandmas and I bumped heads a lot when I was younger. She was a tough cookie to say the least. She passed away unexpectedly in her sleep about fourteen years ago or so. After she died there was a good month or two where I just had this weird feeling. Like a un easy feeling and a feeling of being watched. There were nights laying in bed and the being watched feeling increased. A handful of times just sitting around watching TV and the hair on my arms would stand up. Nothing was ever out of place or lights flickering or any super weird stuff like that though. Not sure what ended up changing but it just went away one day. A buddy’s wife’s story’s from her parents house they bought in the late 80’s and where she grew up in are far more intriguing than mine. For example a few of them have seen a guy in a top hat in the yard. Every dog they’ve ever had has always Excessive barked at the same spot in the corner of the basement. They took his daughter down there once who is three and she started laughing and waving in the same corner. certainly some weird stuff!! What’s happened to you?
