A day or so after my sister in law died my husband had an encounter with a buzzard. He was fixing the gate and looked up to see one looking at him. It was about 5 feet away sitting on the fence. It lasted a few minutes. We've lived here 8 years and it's not happened before or since.
We were sitting watching tv in our kitchen/family room one evening and the hob started clicking, like someone was pressing the ignition switch off and on for the gas.It went on for 10 minutes maybe. It was couple of weeks after my dad died in April 1994. Gerald got up to check it for physical reasons but could see none. I didn't need to I knew it was my dad Harry. It never happened again.
My mother died before Christmas that year and I find it better for me to remember them on their birthdays. I tend to have a drink and a cheers to them.
Also, while we're on about strange things. I'd sold my friend one of those pendulum clocks with a dome as we were moving abroad. It was probably 1986 and it had stopped working, hadn't worked for weeks or more.
I was staying with her on a short visit and Uri Geller happened to be on tv doing that thing he used to do with clocks and watches. You sit there and just say Work! as far as I remember, when he says so. We didn't believe it but did it, focusing on the clock for a laugh. Well it only started up again didn't it! We couldn't believe it and thought it very funny and also we were a bit spooked by it.
