  • "When Good is hungry, it seeks food, even in dark caves, and when it thirsts, it drinks even of dead waters"

Posted 25 January 2004 - 01:09 PM

I found this on a rather odd site called Sansalvo. I am not including the link because it includes pornography!

And no, I was only looking at the ghost stories before you all start!

'My aunt, Calley, grew up in a small town in Kentucky. She is not my mother's sister, but she was married to my mother's brother. Her father was dead and she and her brother lived alone with their mother. Calley's grandmother lived two streets over from her and getting to her house took about 10 minutes. But it was an even quicker trip for my aunt if she simply went over the fence at the back of her yard and walked along the railroad tracks until she came to the back of her grandmother's house. However, Calley's mother did not like her doing this as she was terrified of hoboes who she thought loitered along the tracks. She was constantly warning Calley about the hoboes and telling her what horrible things could happen to a little girl if she happened to encounter a hobo. Well, like all little girls, my aunt only listened with half and ear to these warnings. One day, Calley's mother had to go to take care of her younger sister who had just had a baby. It had not been! ! an easy birth and the baby wasn't doing well and Calley's mother was the only one who could come and help. Calley was told that when she came home from school, she should do her homework and when her brother came in from baseball practice, they should both walk around through the streets to their grandmother's house where the grandmother would give them their dinner and they would stay until their mother came for them. Calley did as she was told, setting up her books to work on the kitchen table. She poured herself some milk and took some cookies out of the cookie jar and settled down to do her lessons while waiting for her brother. She was very tired and after having her milk, she put her head down on her book and fell asleep. When she woke up, it was dusk and the kitchen was almost dark. She didn't know where she was for a few seconds. Then, as she realized where she was and that she had fallen asleep, she also realized that her brother wasn't home yet. Just to be ! ! sure, she turned on lights and went through the rooms of the little house calling his name, but he wasn't there. So she called her grandmother on the phone. Sure enough, her brother was there. He had gone there straight from school because he hadn't paid attention to what their mother had told them to do. The grandmother said that dinner was almost ready and that Calley should come right over. She was very hungry and didn't feel like walking around through the streets, so she hopped over the fence at the back of the yard and started down the railroad tracks toward her grandmother's house. It was nearly dark, but she wasn't even thinking about being scared. Suddenly, in the distance, she saw a dark figure coming toward her. Her heart started to thump painfully. A hobo, she thought, in a panic of fear. She looked around quickly. There was no place to go. The sides of the track were pretty well closed in with high fences, and besides the "hobo" seemed to be approachin! ! g at a very high rate of speed. Calley could see her grandmother's back fence, but she knew she'd never make it before meeting up with what she could now see was a black-hooded figure. But when the figure drew up even with her grandmother's yard, it stopped and just seemed to hang in the air. She was close enough now to see it really good, and the hood slipped from the head of the apparition. Calley could see nothing but a skull. She tried to scream, but her voice was stuck in her throat. And then she realized that the figure was pointing to her grandmother's house. Then suddenly it was gone. Calley ran to her grandmother's house as fast as she could and just as she came in, her grandmother was hanging up the phone and wiping tears away with a tissue. She turned sad eyes to Calley and told her that her Aunt's baby girl had just died. My aunt Calley is now 75 years old, but to this day she says she saw the face of death!'

Oooer..........

I bruise easily, so no comment.

Could this have been a premonition the girl had, Hams?  She connected the line with bad things, and we all connect the archetypal image of The Grim Reaper with death, so maybe her subconscious received the message and displayed it in a way she could comprehend.

There's a reason for my thinking on this, because I've heard of a premonition case in the UK, where a woman was watching TV, and suddenly there was a newsflash.  The newsflash told of a disaster, where a gas plant (I think), had blown up, killing many people.  The newsflash disappeared, and programmes returned as normal.  A few hours later, the explosion actually happened, and the bulletins were full of the news.

The woman couldn't have seen a newsflash, so maybe her mind had interpreted her premonition as something she could comprehend.  In this example, a newsflash.

Just a thought.

Good thinking Cuffs........now we're back onto my theory of instinct or a kind of 'early warning' system that could produce these images, or Banshees..........

I read of an account from a woman in Liverpool who had several dreadful dreams. In the dreams she clearly saw a pair of womens' hands complete with nail varnish on well-manicured nails in a pair of handcuffs................nothing sinister in that you think..........well, the hands were just that - removed at the wrists complete with torn and bloody stumps. And she always saw them on a roof-top.
A few weeks after the devasting attack on the Twin Trade Towers occured........and the police reported finding a pair of disembodied hands that were identified as belonging to an air-hostess.

*I hope no one was offended or upset by this story*

That's a good theory. Maybe it follows a particular genetic thread back to the tribal ancestors of certain racial groups who were more aware of such things, relied on them more and possibly even encouraged them.

Well now Agent - I put this theory forward in a US site, and asked them if they had any experiences with Black Dogs, Banshees, or Corpse Candles......the results were amazing!

The ones who had Black Dog encounters (themselves or in the family) all had Celtic roots.............the ones who heard wailing before a death in the family had rots that could be traced back to Ireland, Wales or Scotland..........and no one had heard of Corpse Candles LMAO!

So it kind of reinforces my theories on genetics more than the paranormal. However, I still have no explaination for the reports of Banshees and Black Dogs being seen by more than one witness.........*sigh* one step forward, two steps back......

I half expected that. I remember reading somewhere about a banshee wailing before one of the Kennedy assassinations. Could be urban mythology tho'.

'An Australian visiting Britain...', or something similar, has leapt of the page enough times for me to notice. I wondered if you had noticed that in your experience.

Ahhhh..........I know the story of the family who heard the banshee when Kennedy was assasinated....was it the Connor family?
I seem to remember he first heard the wailing before his grandfather died. Nurses at the hospital saw a woman in black sitting outside his room waling and moaning.....they thought it was a member of the family....until she vanished moments before he died.....

I've only come across one Aussie who claimed that her family had a banshee.....
