At some point in life if crazy things keep happening to you and your family, you literally just have to laugh. I mean come on, from birth I have known high strangeness exists and is here to stay. But for once this little tale is my families but it doesn’t include me…

Leaving a family event, my sisters, father and grandfather saw something in the sky above that they couldn’t explain and hadn’t seen before, and they all had the feeling that it was chasing them down the highway.
When they finally got back home they ran to the windows and saw it sort of hovering up there in the sky above the Saint Mary’s Church.
They said my grandfather wanted them away from the windows and pulled down the shades.
Meanwhile my father and uncle took off in my fathers truck after it. At one point they said, it just went poof, one minute it was there and the next it was gone.
They told this story to me often. And although my father never believed in ghosts, despite where we lived, or Bigfoot, he most definitely believed in UFOS.
It’s amazing how a definite skeptic can have one experience that shakes their entire belief system. My sister had nightmares for months of a UFO hovering above the church, and my father would sit outside often on the patio and keep an eye on the night sky right up until he passed.
Told you I wasn’t crazy…
It’s very fortunate when you have seen something you can’t explain if another witness is around to coo-berate your insanity. In this case, the unidentified flying object was seen by many witnesses. In fact, it also made the local paper. And because this family is insane the original 1982 article still remains in the family.
The witness in the article below is not my family, which helped validate they weren’t all going mad.
The intersection that the witness is talking about, the corner of Main and Pleasant, is literally where St. Mary’s Church in Franklin is. Right next to our house.
I don’t know what it is about my family that makes us magnets for high strangeness, but to us the paranormal is actually normal and I wouldn’t want it any other way…
