What Followed Me?

What Followed Me?

In the 1950's I often went to my relative's in Wirt County to visit on the week-ends. The procedure was to drop them a post-card early in the week saying I would take the Greyhound bus to the stop where they picked me up. I did exactly that one week...

Black Panther?

Black Panther?

I do not know if this is considered a "strange creature", but to me it was! It was a "black panther" type animal. It was the middle of summer, not sure the year, maybe 1988/89, when we had the terrible dry spell. It just would not rain, fires were...

Hello, My name is Dwayne. I am 31, married, father of two and probably the most skeptical person around. I can usually find some reasonable explanation for ghosts, UFO's etc.., but I heard something when I was thirteen that scared me more than anything ever had before or since....
