The Roommates and The Spaceman of Ocean Beach

written by Chris Holly

I received an email from a lovely woman who had a UFO sighting when she was living in Ocean Beach, California. She was 18 years old at the time. The year was 1980. The women, along with a roommate were living in an apartment in the San Diego area one block from the Ocean. Together they watched a UFO over Ocean Beach.

The woman told me that one foggy night along with her roommate she became compelled to get in her car and drive to a beach about a mile away from her apartment. This was odd, as they could have walked to a beach in about five minutes, as one was located right down the block from their apartment.

They did not usually go out of their way to go to other beaches. They could not explain why but were driven to go to the beach a mile away that night. It was late in the evening for a beach visit and they really had no reason to want to go to a beach a car ride away, however, something compelled them to go.

It was not a beach night as dense fog covered the roads, but the roommates were compelled so strongly they decided to get in the car and drive to the beach about a mile south of them.

The fog was so thick they could barely see 10 feet in front of the car. They continued on carefully crawling down the road to the beach parking lot they were drawn to. They parked the car and headed straight through the fog for the water.

Once they got about 20 feet from the shoreline the fog broke exposing a crystal clear corridor that was approximately 150 yards wide by about one mile in length.

The girls heard a faint humming sound. They followed the sound looking up to see a UFO a few hundred feet above their heads. It was gliding smoothly moving parallel to the shoreline. They found themselves looking at around iridescent looking craft.

This is the point they think they lost a bit of time. They seemed to have some confusion from the point of first seeing the craft, to the point when they once again recall it moving over their heads. The woman does remember getting a very good look at the UFO as it moved across over their heads.

The next thing she remembers is watching the craft move away. About a half a mile down the shoreline it stopped for several seconds then it vanished in the thin air - almost as if it disappeared into another dimension.

One of the really odd things about this experience was the point when the UFO stopped before vanishing. It stopped and hovered right next to the beach house owned by an elderly man nicknamed the Spaceman of OB (Ocean Beach). He was a retired artist, a painter who claimed to have contact with aliens and UFOS.

The girls knew about the spaceman artist. Everyone in the area was familiar with him. They never thought much about him before, however, now found it very odd that they were seeing this craft so close to his bungalow on the beach.


The Spaceman Of Ocean Beach was an artist named Clint Cary. Clint was an excellent artist who pioneered painting with black light technique. He was known for his beautiful art pieces of alien cities and alien life.

The Spaceman claimed he had been taken to other planets by alien beings where he was shown cities where the people of earth would be taken by beings of light to be saved from an earth-ending event.

Clint Cary lived and painted along Ocean Beach from the 50’s until sometime in the early 90’s before giving way to blindness and a lifetime of alcoholism.

The young women who had this sighting near this artist’s bungalow decided to visit the artist the day after their sighting.

They did meet the man and did ask him if he had seen the craft they had the night before. He told them he had not seen anything and was not overly eager to talk to them about what they had seen over the beach near his cottage.

The girls did get to see some of the Spaceman’s artwork. The woman told me that his paintings of the space cities were extremely beautiful and without question one of a kind piece of art.

This woman told me that she and her friend recalled seeing other people along the beach that were watching this UFO fly over the beach that night. She often wondered if anyone else has come forward who witnessed this sighting that night in 1980 at Ocean Beach, California?

I was able to research that Clint Cary was indeed called the Spaceman of Ocean Beach. He was famous for his claims of alien contact and wonderful artwork of alien cities. The strange thing that I cannot find one image of any of his alien works of alien cities anywhere. I searched for a long time and only found later works of his, but not one sample or copy of any of his extensive alien city pieces.

I found this sighting to be very interesting. The women involved will never forget that night or the UFO that seemed to lull them to the beach located along the same stretch of coastline that the Spaceman lived and painted scenes of places so extreme that those who viewed them never forgot them.

I also found it odd that I was not able to find one of these paintings anywhere or in any article written about his man. It seems all his incredible paintings of alien life and cities are lost. I tried but found them impossible to find.

Finding information on the Spaceman and his claims of alien abduction has been very difficult. I found one article about the spaceman written by Mike James on the Out of Bounds site on the net. Mike James wrote the following about the spaceman:

During the summer of 1977, my brother Pat and I had our first encounter with the Spaceman of Ocean Beach. Artist and musician Clint Cary, The Spaceman, lived in a cottage at the entrance to the Ocean Beach Pier.

The Spaceman claimed to have traveled to other planets, other dimensions. His otherworldly friends from the planet Rillispore transported him there. He first began his journeys in the late 50’s after first meeting the Rillosporians in the desert near Joshua Tree.

Later the Rillosporians would appear in his Ocean Beach bungalow to take him on these mini-vacations from our time and space.

As a painter, Clint was inspired by these journeys and created wonderful “cosmic art” masterpieces.

During our time with the Spaceman, he gave us “Spaceman Cards“. They were to be our tickets to travel on a giant spaceship. We would be deposited on the 3rd-dimensional planet Lycillus Apum. The relocation would save us from the cataclysmic destruction of the earth when the magnetic poles would shift.

I think it is clear that all who came to know the Spaceman of Ocean Beach will not forget him - especially the women who encountered the unknown right in front of the Spaceman’s home!

We will never know what was going on along that area of coastline at Ocean Beach California during that period of time. I do know this woman and her friend will never forget their encounter with that UFO or the man known as the Spaceman of Ocean Beach and his art.

Chris Holly’s Endless Journey with the Unknown-

Brad Steiger and Randy Maugans Book Reviews

Book Review Journeys of the Unknown by People Like You and Me    by Brad and Sherry Steiger

Highly recommended but best read before bedtime.

Chris Holly is one of those remarkable authors who makes the readers feel as though they have been invited into her home for a cup of coffee or tea. After a bit, when everyone is comfortable, Chris begins in more serious to ask, "Do you believe in ghosts?" or Have you ever seen a UFO?" or "Did I ever tell you about the time there was a monster waiting in our house to do me ill? Even the policemen we called were frightened by this strange creature. And no one knows what it was!"

And now you are hooked. You aren't going to move until she finishes the story.So it is with her new book Journeys with the Unknown by People Like You and Me, a book of chilling accounts with ghosts, UFO's, Aliens Abductors, Bigfoot, Vampires, Past Lives, Strange Creatures, from out someone's Nightmares, and Psychic Sensitives--- All of which happened to " people like you and me "

A word of advice: Sherry and I have been investigating haunted houses and haunted people , conducting exercises when demonic activity so warranted and encountering UFO intelligence across the USA and overseas for decades, but the inexperienced may find some of Chris Holly's accounts more than a little unsettling . Be forewarned: This book is not bedtime reading-- or you will be awake the rest of the night jumping at shadows.

Chris Holly: The Curious Observer-Real Time Paranormal Experiencer
By Randy Maugans

Chris Holly is a long time veteran journalist in the paranormal realms of the internet. Both her personal perspective and her passion for capturing authentic stories that involve real people, have distinguished her from the standard "woo woo" fare of blogs and YouTube channels. The stories she presents mix urban legend, disturbing event, with a wry wit and a twist of psychological “whodunit”. Her voice is one of both the curious observer and involved participant, mixing empathy with a distanced reasoning facility.

These stories are "real"---not because we can prove them---but because they spring from the collective mirror reality that merges “fiction” with hardcore life experiences. Chris chronicles the events, small and large, that go unnoticed by the average person. These temporal synchronicities we call the "paranormal" are reflections of the human psyche---"snapshots" of the collective dream we call life. Many of the experiencers you will meet in these books are "normal", stable, everyday people who stepped into the dark zone of a life unbidden. Chris, as always, focuses on the HUMAN aspect: the part of us that both rejects and embraces the fantastic; and in doing so, she invites us into another world, where we can choose to become magnificent creatures of light and spirit, or merge into the shadowlands of the horrifying.

Randy Maugans is the creator-host of OffPlanet Radio/TV. Since 2009, he has explored the fringes of science, technology, the paranormal and human experience under the operative: “The Truth is out there, it is INSIDE you.” The shows and blogs can be found at

Sex, Aliens, and Humans,-- Lets Have a Talk

I could not sleep one night and ended up watching videos on youtube to see what is new in the subjects considered unknown or unexplained. I was entertaining myself when I came upon a video in which an interview was going on between a young man who was a self-proclaimed UFO/ Alien researcher and what looked like a typical older woman. She was a pleasant looking woman well into her 60s who looked like many grandmothers out there. She was sitting in a living room that looked like a grandma living room that was located somewhere in a hot desert like area of the United States.

It did not take long for this to turn from a scene f''rom Nana's sofa into something completely bizarre and disturbing. I listened and became stunned at the conversation going on between this young man and this older woman.

The premise of the conversation was that by way of  messages she gets from different places like the radio and television that she plays in reverse aliens have conversations with this older women. Of course, she also receives messages via telepathic methods from aliens too. She claims she has long detailed conversations with the aliens who talk to her about what they are doing and how they do it. Her conversation with this young man was a bit strange as it was very sexual and made my skin crawl a bit I will admit.

At first, I thought this was a joke. Sadly it was not. It was a serious interview. The old woman went about telling this young man who hung on every word how aliens love to come and take over our bodies so they can have sex, drink alcohol and use drugs as well as smoke cigarettes and gamble. They love Las Vegas and often take over our human bodies to do all of these things on weekends at Vegas getaways.

I started to laugh, it was so ridiculous. She went on to claim that the aliens do this to have lots of sex with humans so they can impregnate humans or collect male sperm in order to produce a bunch of half alien half human babies.  I waited for the young host to question how this could be done but he only swallowed each ridiculous word this old woman told him as truth and never asked one question.

The  woman claimed that the aliens would pick out the humans they wanted to use for the purpose of drinking, drugging , and to have sex among other things and would remove the human's soul and place theirs into the human body while going on a joyride to Vegas. A huge amount of questions immediately came into my mind yet the young inexperienced host asked nothing at all concerning this soul issue.

The first thing I wanted to know was where did the human's soul hang out while waiting for the alien to return to his or her own alien body? Did it just float around at home or jump into a closet and wait in there or binge watch some TV while the alien took off to gamble , drink , do some coke and have huge amounts of unprotected sex with those they found willing to do so with them?  And, what happened to the alien body when it had its soul leave and jump into the human's body?  Just little questions but ones I wondered about

 Here is the real biggie for me. If the alien was in the human body in soul only using the human's body to do all these things wouldn't the alien be using the human body to have sex and using the human's eggs or sperm to impregnate all those it had sex with? So all those babies would still be all humans and not half alien unless I am missing something.

The fact of the matter is the entire thing was so stupid and insulting to anyone who could think that it could only be considered an insult to one's intelligence and a giant joke.

 Then I read the comments. Thankfully there were many comments like my own talking about how ridiculous the  video was, however, there were also far too many who took this garbage seriously and believed it.  It was obvious to me that the old woman had major sexual dysfunction issues going on and the silly kid making believe he was a researcher a pair who should have never been matched up.  However, many people actually  took this trip to fantasy land as something that  really happened.

I started to look around and found far too many other  video topics like this one where alien-human sex is discussed on the level of a bad cheap movie where they make up all kinds of silliness to entertain and make a fast buck. It is incredible that people just blindly think any of it could be true, but sadly they do.

Now I feel the need to throw my two cents into this subject matter about alien / human sex before we all get lost in the world of  bad movies , ridiculous videos and trashy papers sold at the cashier's stand where we shop.

A dog and a cat cannot sneak under the porch for some private time to make and then have a barking kitten baby. An elephant and a duck cannot have a walk in the woods alone and end up with a duckphnat  baby, A fish and a bigfoot cannot have a night in a treehouse and have a little hairy fishfoot baby. A human and an alien most likely cannot have a weekend in Vegas and have a baby either.

 Different species cannot mate and have an offspring. Different species may not even have the same type of genitalia. Some species may lay eggs, others give birth, who knows what an alien might do. It is very possible aliens do not mate at all and divide in two like giant cells instead of reproducing like we do. Maybe they have special members of their population who lay thousands of eggs or have litters of hundreds of  little critters, or maybe they are produced  full grown and built by machines. The one thing I know is that unless they are the same species or human like us we cannot reproduce with them by having sex. I doubt we have the same equipment to have sex with in the first place.

I know we all have heard stories of women who claim they have carried hybrid children made by way of sexual encounters with aliens. I think unless the aliens were  humans this is a bit impossible. I also think if it were an advanced human group  needing a woman of today to mate with that they would keep the woman not return her. It is possible that human pregnant women have been taken and returned without their growing human fetus. I think this is a terrible part of abduction but admit that it is possible. Aliens may want to use a human fetus for experimentation or as living material. I realize this is a terrible thing to think about or write about so I  will leave this said and pray it is not a common occurance.

 I watched a show where two very out of shape women claimed they carried hybrid babies for months before being taken and having the babies removed to be completed in alien labs. I think this again is insulting our basic intelligence yet taken as truth by people who are not thinking it out.

 Why would aliens go to the trouble of taking women who were in terrible shape, to begin with , spend the time to do the splicing and extreme biological procedures needed to impregnate them to then return them to earth?

The women could take medications or eat badly or smoke or drink or many things that could destroy the mission at hand. They would either keep the women or just take what they needed from them to develop what they wanted to make in their controlled lab and throw the women back to earth until they wanted more human material. That is what I think goes on but I do not think human women carry, have sex as we know it or give birth to alien children. All of that would be done in a very controlled science lab by aliens.  I do believe some humans are used like human farms for biological material for hybrid development but past being used for biological material all else is done in tightly controlled alien science labs. An experiment like that would be done under strict scientific controls without question,

I am sorry but I think that all of this is simply science we do not yet  understand and logic is needed when thinking about how this would be done by those far more advanced than we are. I believe they are trying to or do make new species that may be used to populate the universe but it is not in the way these silly people looking for fame and fortune describe. We suffer from a rabid case of Hollywood and media brainwashing fantasy in a massive form that provides complete confusion and delusion  concerning all of these things leaving us stuck in the dark ages instead of reaching for logical answers.

I know one day in the future we will understand all of these things as well as  other topics we now consider unknown. We are only now entering our way out of our horse and buggy world and have a long road of learning ahead of us before we can catch up to or understand our more advanced cosmic neighbors. We are surely very primitive to those who can travel this universe with ease. Keep in mind who is visiting who if you start to feel we are even remotely equal in any way to those far older and more advanced. We are barely out of the caves.

We would get there much faster if we used the information we do have in a better way and could stop the ridiculous frauds and fakes from clogging our path.
Sadly that is not our way or  how we seem to want it. We go out of our way to stay deaf , dumb and blind to anything we do not understand.

 With that in mind, I say someday we will know, but for now, we will dream of green lovers who visit and take us on flights of fancy and will remain stuck in stupid just a little bit longer. Oh well, I try, So many have so much good data to share but are shy to come forward due to those like sex crazy Nana and her alien pot smoking, beer drinking alien  Vegas gang.  Until we clear them out and correctly collect the real truth from good people we will remain as is ,  lost in space.

Chris Holly’s Endless Journey with the Unknown-

The Prestigious Huntington Revue Bookstore now selling my new book

I am delighted to report that my new book has been accepted into the prestigious Huntington Revue Bookstore in Huntington New York in their independent author section.

Journeys with the Unknown by People Like You and Me
by Chris Holly

The people written about in the book share their unique experiences. Imagine you are home alone one evening and decide to take your trash out and place it at the end of your driveway for morning pickup. Now imagine the last thing you can recall is a bright ray that surrounded you as you placed the trash at the curb. Three hours later you awaken on the front lawn of a strange house in someone else's clothes sick confused and alone. You cannot remember what happened to you or how you arrived in a strange place. You hurt all over and are terrified.

Or perhaps you are enjoying a wonderful hike out in the wilderness when you suddenly find you are trapped looking at a huge UFO right in front of you. Isolated in the middle of nowhere you try frantically to figure out what to do.

Maybe you are 16 years old and return home to find you are alone with your family all out for the night  and the house dark when you hear something in the house and discover that  a creature is in the house, hiding, lurking behind a half-open closet door waiting to capture you.

It could have been you packed into a small vehicle with family members on the way to a special day together when you come upon a strange craft hovering over the road ahead of you and thousands of red eyes about a foot above the road. The red eyes of the strange aliens begin to chase after you as you turn around and try to outrun them in your small car. You speed towards town with the large group of alien red glowing eyes chasing close behind you.

These are some of the real events that have happened to people exactly like you and me. Frightening, however, told to us by those who lived these encounters. The real fear, however, is that it may only be time before it is your turn to be the one who finds they are alone looking into the cold dead eyes of the unknown.

This collection contains the stories of those who have had encounters and experiences with the strange and unexplained who lived to share them with us.

 It is rather well-known thanks to the internet and the paranormal circles that Nazi scientists were brought to the United States after World War II ended. It is also well known that a large group of these extreme scientists was set up with a secret lab where they worked on their notorious dangerous many times immoral experiments on Plum Island located on the end of Long Island in the state of New York. This secret government lab operated for many years.

 This infamous dangerous Island was known by those living on Long Island as something to stay away from and fear. The Island is about 3 miles long and 1 mile wide which is frightening considering the dangerous horrors that took place over the years in the lab build on the Island. It is only a short boat ride from the tip of Long Island.

Plum Island has been called Monster Island as well as killer Island - due to the work that was done in the lab concerning animal diseases as well as many other horrible experiments. As a local Long Islander, I can only say I believe Plum Island was as close to a living hell as we can get. It was closed a few years ago however it may never be decontaminated enough to use for any purpose. It is and will remain a stain on humanity.

Besides Plum Island being located at the end of Long Island New York we had the very strange military base known as Camp Hero, located only a few miles from Plum Island, which thankfully also is closed. 

For as long as I can remember, which would cover the last 60 years at least, long Island has been a hotspot of reported UFO sightings which continue to this day.

 Long Island also has its share of those who have experienced lost time and abduction events during its history as well. It may be coincidental and easily fluffed off however I am not a fan of coincidental events and believe it far more likely to be tied to the fact that Plum Island and Camp Hero were located on the end of Long Island. 

I think that Long Island may be an area on this planet that is easy access for space travelers to enter and exit our planet as well as a land mass that is close to a large city yet located in an area of land at the end of Long Island that was  sparsely populated and floating in the Atlantic Ocean making access to the open sea immediate and easy. 

Years ago the area had a very low population making the nefarious activities of Plum Island and Camp Hero possible.

 The local people were cautious and silent to the operations of each of these facilities as they did not want problems and did benefit financially from having the lab and military base in the area. It worked out well for all parties for many years.

I think by now we all have read or watched a TV show that discusses the subject of German scientist either back engineering or developing UFOs for the Nazi’s during World War II. It has been said that there is information claiming that Nazi Germany had contact with an alien species and had been working with them.

It is also well known that after the war ended the United States brought many of the German scientists to America to continue their work in USA labs. Plum Island is well known to be one of the labs that employed many of the German Scientists.

 I find this fact extremely upsetting in its own right knowing that these were scientists that worked without any moral compass for the Nazis and were now working on American soil doing their evil deeds on our homeland. I have to add in the strange accounts of many who claim extremely dangerous awful experiments on humans were also during those years taking place at Camp Hero. 

I have no problem thinking that with the German scientists came whatever UFO technology they had conquered or captured including contact with aliens. It would certainly explain the ongoing reports of strange objects flying over Long Island, especially in the 1960’s when both Camp Hero and Plum Island were in their hay day of activity.

 It was not uncommon to hear a report of someone being taken or having contact with beings by Long Islanders that included human looking aliens. It very well could be that these poor people were being used by the insane experiments of the once Nazi scientists who not only may have had contact but were working with an alien species. 

Using the innocent locals for their needs or to experiment on is as likely as any other explanation to why so many events happened at that time on Long Island. It also could explain many events of this nature that occurred along the New England coastline opposite Long Islands shoreline. 

Now year’s later Long Island is free of both Camp Hero and Plum Island, however, it now is said to house a HAARP machine only a few miles away from where both of those facilities once operated. Reports of large flying Orbs have been reported across Long Island and the Atlantic Ocean coastline as well plus of course all of our recent extreme strange weather. It just seems too coincidental to me for all of these things to have anything to do with coincidence!

 I have not researched other locations around the world to see if there are places where both secret government labs and high-security military bases are located near each other that also have HAARP machines in the area. If we do have areas that coincidentally, like Long Island, house these things together, are they also areas of frequent UFO sightings too? 

So many things that go on seem outrageous and ridiculous to think as true however I will tell you from firsthand experience that strange things happen every day and our closed minds and refusal to accept the extreme is exactly what allows the events to occur and continue. Consider that some things are as clear and black and white as they appear. Understand strange and dangerous dark events take place every day in many places. 

Sometimes they happen right in front of your face in your hometown to those you know and love. Decide to start to look hard at the truth of the reality around you and brace yourself for what you may discover. Know the more you learn and the more we understand the less time we will spend living in the dark ages of the unknown

Post date note on this subject:

Since I last wrote this article I was informed by the local people living on the end of Long Island that Plum Island never did close down nor was it moved. It remains open and continued doing the horrible things they have been doing for over 70 years. 

They continue to develop deadly things that they also let slip into the human population. The truth about Plum Island is lied about to all of us and this deadly Island is kept running with only the worst of mankind working on the most deadly of things too close to a large population.

 The fact this continues to go on is total insanity.  I know a TV special recently aired that gave a truthful look at what is going on at Plum Island. The TV show was immediately debunked by news reports that the Island is being closed and will be sold. Hey, that is exactly what they told us years ago. The media told us that Plum island was closed and had been moved to Kansas. Instead, it remained and continued to do business as usual.

The fact this island exists where it does which is right at the tip of Long Island far too close to large populations of people doing disastrous things that could kill us all is completely beyond acceptable yet it continues day after day. I am tired of the careless actions of our government and the horror that is allowed to continue at this god forsaken lab. 

The media talks about closing it and selling the Island for private development . The idea of that statement is an insult to our intelligence. I have had more than one scientist who has been to Plum Island tell my that it would not be possible to decontaminate Plum Island , not know, and most likely not possible at all.

This Island has been linked to UFO's, aliens, deadly disease. terrifying  creatures and other horrors yet it continues along with a large middle finger pointed to those who dare question it.

I am both disgusted with this subject and frightened of it. It may be time for me to consider leaving my beautiful Long Island for safer ground.

The Spirits at Sally’s House

Sally is a friend of mine. I have known her since I was 7 years old. She is a very kind person who has had a life filled with spirits, ghosts or guardian angels. I am not sure what follows Sally but I do know they are there and they protect and guide her.

Sally has lived in the same house her entire life. When Sally married years ago her parents gave Sally and her husband the family home as a gift. Sally has lived there her entire marriage. She raised her children in this house and to this day, still lives in that old family home.

During her lifetime Sally has had good times and bad. The only difference with Sally and other people is that when Sally has an extreme happening in her life, the spirits around her let themselves be known. I know this for a fact as I have witnessed these events first hand while at Sally’s house.

The first time Sally became aware she was going to a mother was when we were sitting in her dining room having a cup of tea.

 Sally, her sister and I were sitting around talking when Sally mentioned she thought she might be expecting, but she added: 

“ I am not sure yet”. The second Sally said that a guitar that was hanging on the wall in the dining room started to play. It did not make a few notes due to weather change or temperature adjustment, it played a part of a song!

When the guitar started to strum this little tune I did what anyone would do, I jumped to my feet yelling:

 “ Oh my God, oh my God” 

with my hands in the air frightened to death. Sally and her sister were a bit more laid back and just sat there. I then ran out of the dining room with Sally and her sister running after me. I kept running, knocking chairs out of my way and spewing books on a shelf near the door all over the floor until I was outside and away from the house.

Sally and her sister finally calmed me down enough so I could focus on what was going on.

 Sally and her sister then explained that they think the spirits of all the family members who lived there before them still hang around. I just stood and stared at them. They went on to tell me that often when either a very good thing happens or very bad things are coming, odd events like the guitar playing, happen in the house.

Years passed and I started to become accustomed to the odd happenings at Sally’s house. 

One year Sally’s brother seemed to be out of sorts. Sally thought he may need help but was hesitate on insisting he go to a doctor to see why he looked so sickly and was acting so oddly.

 Sally and I were talking about it while we were out shopping. I had seen her brother the night before and was stunned at how awful he looked. I was trying to convince Sally to insist her brother go to a doctor. 

The conversation of my concern was still going on as we unlocked Sally’s front door and entered her house. As soon as we walked into the house a putrid smell hit us both. It was overpowering we both started to retch and run to open the windows. The house smelled like rotting meat.

We searched the entire house and found nothing that could be causing this odor. Then, without rhyme or reason, the odor was gone. It simply vanished. We stood in her living room looking at each other. With that, we heard a muffled meowing from upstairs. Sally looked at me and said: 

 “That sounds like Sammy.” 

We both ran up the stairs following the sound of the family cats little cries. We followed it to a big dresser that was standing in the hallway in front of and blocking an old linen closet. The cat continued to cry. We pushed the big heavy chest out of the way and pulled open the linen closet door to find Sammy wedged on the top shelf terrified and shaking. We pulled the cat down and comforted the frightened animal the best we could.

How the cat got into that closet or why that house smelled was simply a confusing unknown. We searched and found no sign of a break-in. Nothing had been taken, the house seemed perfectly fine other then the fact it had that overpowering smell and Sammy was found locked away in a blocked closet!

Sally insisted her brother go to the doctor the next day. The doctor told the family that if her brother had waited another day he might have died. His heart needed immediate surgery, which saved his life. I think Sally was forced by that house event to get her brother the help he needed.

I had a few incidents of my own in Sally’s house that I will never forget. Again in her dining room sharing tea with Sally and her sister.

 This time, we were talking about my decision to get married or not. I was in love and very happy but extremely nervous about making the final commitment. I was telling my two friends that I just wish I knew what the right thing was to do. I remarked I thought it was time for me to be a married woman. As soon as those words came out of my mouth a music box sitting on the hutch in the dining room started to play. It was playing the wedding waltz tune that my grandmother had in the music box she was given on her wedding day, that I now owned.

I sat and listened to the lovely little box play the beautiful little song. I asked my friends: 

“ How they got the music box to play at that exact moment? “

 My friends looked at me and. Sally said:

 “We didn’t.” 

I looked at them and replied an articulate: 


 Sally got up and walked to the music box and brought it back to the table and placed it in front of me. She then said: 

“ Turn it over and look at it, you have to wind it to play, and look at the songs it plays, it is right there on the label where you wind it up.”

I turned the box over and saw the key where you wind it to make it play. I also read the song titles; it said Jingle Bells and Silent Night. I turned the key until it was tight and placed the music box on the table to play. In a soft bell-like ringing the box played Jingle Bells followed by Silent Night. They were the only songs this music box played. I was stunned. How could this be, how did it play a song not programmed on the music box? 

 I was told it only plays those two songs. I was also told I should get married as the angels of the house approved!

The activity in this house continues to this day. I have witnessed a group of angel sculptures dance around on a fireplace mantel while bells were heard as they shook around in circles.

 I also have been in conversations while the TV sets in the house switched on and off by themselves over and over. 

I have watched as my watch was removed from where I placed it on the counter minutes before to be found later on the dashboard of my car. The events in this house are countless, and to this day continue.

The thing of it all, with this house and its events, is that they do not frighten you, once you get use to them. The family uses the events as the opinions and guidance of those who lived there before them. The family feels it is done in love and caring and often considers the strange events the opinions of those who look over them.

I have no idea what is going on in Sally’s house. I do know the events happen. I do know they happen often and I find the attitude of the family the key to making the unknown second nature for this family. They simply think of it as another voice to consider when big issues are at hand. They feel it is just one of the relatives, long past, throwing their two cents into whatever is going on.

I wonder about Sally’s house sometimes. I think it best left exactly as it is. It certainly seems that everyone and every spirit involved seems to be doing fine. The only one who seems a bit annoyed now and then is Sammy! However, a little cuddle and a new mouse toy to chase and even Sammy seems to be content!

Summer and Saucers in the Sixties

When I was a child my parents had very good friends that lived nearby. We all lived in a small hamlet along the coast of Great River located on the south shore coast of Long  Island New York.

My parent's friends  were a lovely quiet  conservative family who was not prone to flights of fancy or believing anything without hard facts to back it. They were a serious, successful couple who lived a  careful, well-planned life of thoughtful reflection and controlled emotion.

 My parents enjoyed their company. My family and my parent's friends family would often spend time sharing BBQ;s in our yards or having clambakes along the waters edge during the long summer nights. We shared many good times with this other family.

The event I am going to tell you about happened shortly after the Fourth of July during the early 1960's. It was a Saturday night in early July

.My parents friends were celebrating their wedding anniversary on this particular  Saturday night in July. They had gone out to dinner and decided afterwards on the way  home to take a drive in their new Cadillac convertible  with the top down to the village dock to star gaze for a few minutes before returning home. The night was clear and the stars bright and clear.

 The next day my family was sitting around having Sunday breakfast when the phone rang . My father answered it. My parent's friend was on the phone asking my father if he and my mother could stop over and help him as he was having some sort of problem with his wife and needed their help. Of course, my parents went right over rather concerned about such an odd request.

Hours later my parents came home and told us that their friends had a strange experience the night before at the village dock My father explained how after dinner the couple had taken a ride in their new car with the top down to the dock  They rode down to the docks edge where two other cars were also parked—the  occupants of the other cars were  also taking in the beautiful summer night sky.

 My parent's friends said they were sitting there only a few minutes soaking in the night when they noticed a light coming in off the bay at the mouth of the river toward them.

The husband  told my father it   happened quickly In a matter of seconds. As they sat in the car  they could see the light coming into the river  take form and right there, hovering in front of them over the river, was a huge craft—a huge flying saucer.

The man told my father that along with the other people parked at the rivers dock  they immediately became terrified and tried to start their cars in order to drive away.

They felt  very vulnerable with the  car top down but  he could not get the motor running or the top mechanism to work in order to close the convertible  top for  some protection.

 He had explained to my father that the huge flying saucer just floated with a low, dull hum over the river for about a minute when the light show started.

The body of the craft  began to change colors— the grey first was  blue then red then orange and then back to blue. His wife began to panic and scream and tried to crawl over the side of the car.

He  could not start the car, He saw that  the other people in the other cars were running into the wooded areas adjacent to the dock as their cars also refused to start. He grabbed his wife and they did the same.

They ran into the foliage along the rivers edge and found a large fallen tree. They hid under the tree . From there they could see the river and that the craft was now shooting brilliant rays of incredible neon light across the water. They hid and watched in total fear. The craft continued to do this for about ten minutes. It then turned back to its original dull grey color and as quickly as it had made its way down the river, it made its way back up the river and took off into the night sky.

Within seconds, it went from being right in front of them to becoming a tiny dot of light barely visible in the sky above them.

One of the owners of the other cars had made his way back to the dock and his  car . The others all watched as he started his car. Everybody then ran to their respective cars and sped away from that dock, engines roaring and wheels screeching.

A few weeks passed with this being the main talk of the community. The people were anxious and looking for  an explanation from the local police. Instead, the only  response was the entire experience  was becoming the laugh of the town as if the  'river people' had gone nutty.

My father now kept his shotgun loaded, and started to lock the house tightly at night. The other people who lived along the rivers coast seemed on edge too and we all stayed  closer to home especially at night.

 The worst of it was the wife of my parent's friend who was there that night started to decline quickly.  She started taking lots of pills and drinking heavily. This once well-groomed, conservative lady was now often messy or drugged so that she constantly slept..  My parents were often upset and my mom received calls nearly every day asking for her to go check on her friend while her husband was at work. My world seemed to be turned upside down by this night of lights in the summer sky.

Eventually, the summer turned to fall and school started. The lady who was my parent's friend never did get  back to her usual self  and  her husband decided to buy a smaller house closer to his work and other family members so that he could better care for her. He kept his river home but seemed only to ride out and check it alone on weekends. We never saw them much after that.

My parents decided to sell our river home the following summer. I am unsure how much this incident contributed to their decision but we did leave our riverside haven and moved into the town near more people and far from the water’s edge.

I have no idea what happened that night over the river. I do not know what was there or what made the wife of my parent's friend snap like she did. I do know she lived out the rest of her life broken from what she witnessed that night about the river.

I realized as I grew up that this couple obviously had far more happen to them that night and either the husband did not remember it or choose to stay silent about it however it damaged his wife for life.

I often wonder how many other people like this couple and all those who were at that dock that night have similar stories about strange things seen on lovely summer nights.
