I have a few but here's the first, chronologically, that I can remember:
I lived in Western Washington. One of my 4 sisters was buying an old station wagon from another one of my sisters in Spokane. My mom drove my sister
(the buyer) and myself to Spokane, and we would have a 2 car convoy to get back to Western Washington, about a 5 hour drive.
The bought car was pretty junky, so we were trying to stay close to Mom's minivan, in case of a breakdown... Somewhere, a few hours into the drive
back, neither my sister or I knew where Mom and the van were... We THOUGHT she was behind us, somewhere, so we slowed down, and kept an eye out for
her... (This is a bit before everyone had cell phones)
Finally, we decided to stop before we really got into the mountains, so my sister parked the car on the shoulder, next to a rest stop, so in case Mom
drove by, she'd see us, and I could also go use the pay phone.
I called the state patrol to ask if there any accidents behind us, and there wasn't. So I started walking back towards the parked car, when I start
hearing someone call my name...
ANOTHER one of my sisters was coming to Western Washington, unannounced, from central Oregon, to visit, and her truck had just broke down, and rolled
to a stop AT this truck stop! She was about to hitch a ride, when she saw the stupid looking polka dot shirt (other people's opinion) that I liked and
We gave her a ride, and found out that Mom had at one point passed us, so we were going slow and stopped for no reason.
THAT, while maybe purely coincidental, made me start seeing some synchronicities...
