This is exactly right. began. Hello. Welcome to my favorite learner, the Minnesota Borri region should see you do you like it. will I get this one's called glowing eyes in the basement window and there's no Indra, because this is her l is we got to get to this episode spur yet. I grew up in
super small town in northern Wisconsin. I was around ten years old and my best friend and I were excited to go to a youth group at her church. That night. Since her mom is part of the churches band, we had to get their early for them. To rehearse we got there. We were the only kids went down to the basement where the group rooms relocated to play around until it Intel Group started, the basement was broken up in a fork quadrants with each with their own lights. So we only had the lights on an hour quadrant in the basement and the rest of the rooms were dark. It was also dark outside by this time, so I'm feeling a little creature by being in this old church, there's also a window in that room. That was at ground level, and this is important. so we find about and we're about to back and forth to each other when my friend bounces it while it any and I miss the catch, the eye
a proceeds to bounce off the laws and into the windowsill that is kind of push back into the wall. We follow the ball around the room and when it reaches said window, so we both freeze because in this window we can make out the outline of a head with the biggest glowing white we ve looked at each other, the same terrified tastes and start screaming as if we are scared enough already, as we start to run up the stairs, we can hear the figure a fucking yelling, no help me. no, why? We are practically tears at this point and we run her mom and explain what we saw. She didn't believe as it first of course, but we were both really distress. She finally agreed to investigate ass he went outside. We could hear someone still yelling help me. No.
This is what my mom's face turned to. This is when hormones face turned to, and oh shit look yet not knowing what the fuck would be behind this old church. My mom decided to call the cops. They can investigate good once they arrived, we were behind the church to find not a tariff glowing I'd creature but in fact a poor old lady who had fallen off the latter in her back yard. She had broken her legs so when she saw the basement light turn on. She crawled her way to the ground level window to see how scarier scarier you'd, all lady glasses were reflected in a light coming from the basement, which made her look out solely terrifying, I felt so bad afterwards. It I'd taken us, that's not long to get her help, but hey better safe than sorry assess g g M, your favorite Rugby Blair, Shelby Shit, shall first of all my favorite girls name, shall be I'm assuming. That is fucking how scarier that they were
They really were seeing something. May it was really was yelling help me. It was real huzza, poor old lady. What are you doing on your lady? Why are you on a ladder you're, an old lady, ask your neighbor to how is your glasses? Are this thing I should not get up now. That's the sign up and when she's all older army crawl to the basement, known as like eggs, Furl came in these little creatures screaming at all, Like I was like then lying there all day. I'd like the light comes on that thing, I so thirsty. I wanted a couple of lemon Bounty Animal Sosa Shit that was a good money up, show ok the some decline of this one as grandpa stops robbery with some unlikely help? Our great page do
Sub Karen and Georgia and Stephen my dad and I were on a road trip and we swung by a little house, he grew up in with his seven brothers and sisters his mouth. and his dad. Who was only police officer in town you there
this was also the police station that New Zealand. Ok, that suddenly makes Saddam's right seriously the front two rooms or the police for police business and the family kept the bedrooms to live in, and I think they shared the kitchen MIKE gives amazing. When I asked my dad what the hell they did when they needed to lock somebody up, he said there is a shared in the garden. I dont know if he was joking, so good, can you imagine growing up in a police station? I asked dad what it was like four grandpa to be the one and only cop in town, and he said he needed to improvise sometimes than he told me. This story late, one eye grandpa, spotted men with flashlights inside the tv and appliance repair shop, obviously robbing the place back up from New Plymouth would
take over an hour to get their grandpa didn't want away, because, of course he knew the people who own the repair shop and couldn't just watch while robbers ruin their business. That's when he saw the lights in the local Roby Rugby Club, where I like to imagine that he now said thought Protocol before he took off running for the club. He burst into the room of drinking rugby player like there and if any one would like to help em catch some bad guys, they were into it. The town didn't have street lights back then so Grandpa had a shepherd the road. Players through the pitch dark death, but we try to keep political position them at the front of the shop. Then he's around back, took a deep breath and kicked in the backdoor shouting, freeze, police, the robbers, after what they were holding and bolted out the front door right into about a dozen drunk, enthusiastic relevant layer. None, as my dad said, quote. They work
absolutely didn't, have to hold anything bad wholly share. I feel far sorry for the robbers they had not signed up for anything like what happened to them and it was dark, so they literally didn't know what hit them. They were scraped off the pavement and sent to New Plymouth for processing and the Ruby guys would talk about nothing else. For days think we all dream that one day will get to help. I'm take down a criminal, hopefully, will be sober and not one of the twelve other huge ass men when it happens, stay sexy and help out your local carpal array. A perfect story is not I mean you can see it all of it happening and as soon as you said, rugby layers- oh yeah, oh fine, yes and drunk once to the best kind. Are there any other kind? Are there any other kind, be how good are they attacked and punch launching punching in tackling this? What they do and it's like you, can't buy them now. That's their whole.
