This is my first post anywhere on ATS and I would like to tell my story.
I have had three strange experiences, well 4 if you count meeting my mother in law, in my life and I will start with the first.
When I was a child I lived close to a small wood. As kids in our neighbourhood during the summer months we would often camp in this wood as it was
close by our houses, and then the dangers were much less than today (early 1970's)
Because this area was close to our homes we would often get up early whilst camping, to steal the milk, eggs, cheese etc that the milkman would
deliver to the homes, and feast on these for breakfast.
I took a turn one morning to carry out the milk raid (about 5.30am) and duly filled my boots. On the way back and entering the woods with the booty, I
had walked about fifty yards in and suddenly noticed a line of men in black hooded cloaks coming toward me.
I was not one bit afraid, and as they past the last one turned looked at me and smiled. I cannot recall seeing the faces of the others, he was young
as I recall (albeit this was around 39 years ago) As quick as I saw them they vanished.
Funny that I can never remember talking about it, until it suddenly came to mind the other day and I mentioned it to my wife.
I can not help feeling these men were monks, yet we lived nowhere near any abbey or religeous establishment.
As I said I was not one bit afraid, yet would probably get the spooks if it happened again, and indeed I have had two further experiences with
entities in my adult life. One which scared the hell out of me.
Why should this event suddenly come to mind after all these years?
