man strike: do our proper Charlie saved us from being murdered, while I panicked and apparently changed outfits three times before the police even got there? Ok, so my husband, Brian and I don T see paranormal activity do and we had back to her tiny bungle, overlooking the cute shops, police station and restaurants in historic, nor across George, I found a normal. It's a little suburb right out of Atlantis parameter. We went to bed fairly early bees, Brian had to fly out early, the next funding for work, but we were awoken and terror by our Springer Spaniel. Going absolutely crazy. three a m. it just the middle of the night paranormal activity. Now what you are not cool, Springer Spaniel, it's never darker than at three p m I knew the second that I heard his bark that something was really wrong. It was like no bark I've ever heard from him or any other dog boy. We
Both immediately jumped up and started running toward the barking are tiny bungalow. Had a waste high white piglet hence all the way around it with a big wraparound southern style front, porch, the side door where was glass and have the way the old windowpane entirely starts going nuts attacking the window. When we look up there's a man standing there sat staring at us with his arms casually by his side, rocking back conform with the most terrifying smile on his face, I'm already scared, because you know once I dont like sliding last stores because, like underground or because you can't you can see is your affection when the ice or on that's right. That's not! Ok! You have that. No, you I had that ends that was in a movie where we were, talking about that so perfect and in the area around the light? Often it's it's someone inside at NEA with, although with all windows going I
feel someone is outside, but I'm on now? I know they can see me and I can't see that I'm just gonna live in a box. What's happening? Ok, so Brian who was buck. Ass naked screamed at me to get our gun, who I was always scared of having guns now, so we had a shotgun with no bullets. I gotta be empty gun from the closet and Brian still naked cracked it and help through the window wildlife found someone's Canadian, I phoned nine one MA am waiting on the operator. My husband tells me to have to go back and check the porch. He was convened, This guy was the disk. action and more were coming in the back. Oh my god now elements as what the fuck you. Yes, ok by this point, I am totally out of my mind with panic. The dog is still going deserve. My husband is naked and holding the empty go on seem to be some sort of drug. Doubt zombie, but but look I didn't see anyone in back by this point.
The guy now has crossed his arms and is leaning his face again. The windows staring at Brian through the glass he's that close just smiling giggling and whispering things under his now now he didn't break. I contact with Brian, which somehow made it even more terrifying. Our home was actively few blocks in a police station. You could literally stand on the front porch and see the station. So once I was on the phone with, and I want to one operator she was like describe, so I did and she says- oh goodness, we know that is more whatever you do. Don't chased him if he runs so it says, I'm sorry we then take them. Earlier in the night and he had just strolled off from the station and ended up in our house. While I, is on the phone with I want one. My husband said he kept seeing me run back and forth. In
out of our bedroom. Each time I ran by, I was an indifferent tentative close up. He said I changed at least three times no memory of it whatsoever how, by the, but by the time the police showed up. I had on a summer dress my heroes pulled up. Our lipstick Brian was still naked. With an unloaded gun. The police dragged the zombie criminal off the front porch and arrested him in the front yard. They couldn't stop talking about how creepy the guy was, which must be super creepy. Considering what cop see every day that's so all my again after brine finally got put on some shorts, he asked one policeman what suggestions he better homes safety. He said for get a dog and then get a security system and then get again. She knows how to use as he point made at me. He looked me dead in the eye and said honey. We generally show up to clean up the mess. If he'd got then he could have killed you and gone in the town.
It takes us to get here. It was our sea air, sweet, baby, hero, Charlie, who alerted us to something being wrong and was brave enough to not. Let up until the police got. The bad guy could be kept his mama sexy any didn't. Let me get murdered good boy. I love your show, can't wait to see you live in Atlanta in January. Hosty Gm Katy Charlie's, the boy you can use I'm here, I'm a cap person through and through. You know that.

when there's somebody on the front porch that we don't know like and it sounds completely different than her normal bark while I know when they now and they want to know now- and they just want to talk on them now- and there you this that, but it's not the same- these gas will stare at you as someone breaks into thou yeah.

She heard something down stairs at the door and idly thought that it must my dad coming home from the hospital earlier than expected when the sun,

We ve never finish the basement as its prone to flooding and we ve always just use it as a general sort of laundry workshop, etc. Space It's just a little bit creepy the way that all unfinished basements are, but never freaked me out too much as a kid when you grow up in an old house, creepy basements in spooky noises at night, like noisy, radiators or just part of life, anyway around two thousand eight, my parents adopted a new dog of lack lab mixed named clerk a car like their oil.
