Once there was a a beautiful young girl who
lived in a small town just south of
Farmersburg. Her parents had to go to town for
a while, so they left their daughter home
alone, but protected by her dog, which was a
very large collie. The parents told the girl
to lock all the windows and doors after they
had left. And at about 8:00pm the parents went
to town. So doing what she was told the girl
shut and locked evey window and every door.
But there was one window in the basement that
would not close completely.
Trying as best as she could she finally got
the window shut, but it would not lock. So she
left the window, and went back upstairs. But
just to make sure that no one could get in,
she put the dead-bolt lock on the basment
Then she sat down had some dinner and decided
to go to sleep for the night. Settling down to
sleep at about 12:00 she snuggled up with the
dog and fell asleep.
But at one point, she suddenly woke up. She
turned and looked at the clock...it was 2:30.
She snuggled down again wondering what had
woken her.....when she heard a noise. It was a
dripping sound. She thought that she had left
the water running, and now it was dripping
into the drain of her sink. So thinking it was
no big deal she decided to go back to sleep.
But she felt nervous so she reached her hand
over the edge of her bed, and let the dog lick
her hand for reasurance that he would protect
her. Again at about 3:45 she woke up hearing
drippping. She was slightly angry now but went
back to sleep anyway. Again she reached down
and let the dog lick her hand. Then she fell
back to sleep.
At 6:52 the girl decided that she had had
enough...she got up just in time to see her
parents were pulling up to the house.
"Good,"she thought. "Now somebody can fix the
sink...'cause I know I didn't leave it
running." She walked to the bathroom and there
was the collie dog, skinned and hung up on the
curtain rod. The noise she heard was its blood
dripping into a puddle on the floor. The girl
screamed and ran to her bedroom to get a
weapon, incase someone was still in the
house.....and there on the floor, next to her
bed she saw a small note, written in blood,
Now it is time for you to lock all the windows
I would like to share an experience I had not too long ago. People who
are from around Cincinnati might be familiar with this. It's an old
legend, that kind of spooked me.
I will start off telling you the story behind the story. There are several
versions of the story, this is the one most popular.
There is a long narrow stretch of deserted road near Oxford, Ohio.
Oxford is about 30 minutes North of Cincinnati. Supposedly several years
ago, a guy broke up with his girlfriend, got drunk and started riding his
motorcycle down this road. At the end of the road is a very sharp hairpin
turn. The guy didn't make the turn, and ended up wrecking into the barbwire
fence straight ahead and was decapitated.
Now the story is if you go to this road at night, flash your lights three
times, you will see the bike coming down the road.
A couple of friends and myself went to this road one night about 1:30 A.M.
My two friends had been there two other times and saw the same thing every time.
There was another car full of people from the nearby college, Miami Oxford
University. They left about fifteen minutes after we got there. Well It was
just the three of us out there. We flashed our lights several times and
nothing seemed to happen.
Well we decided to give it one more try before we left. We did and five
minutes later about 1/2 mile down the road a very very bright single light
came down this road. It seemed to be coming very fast, but it was not
lighting up the road in front of it like a car headlight does. It was
coming closer and closer. It was so bright. Well the light was about
100 yards away when my friend in the backseat said "Uh Jeff?". The exact
instant I started the car, I mean no lapse in time whatsoever, the light
went right out. You should know that I didn't turn on my lights until I
was well under my way. I took off like a bat out of hell towards where the
light went out. I got to the spot in seconds. I really wanted to see if
there was anything there. A car a motorcycle or kid with a flashlight,
anything. I slowed down to where the light went out. There was absolutely
You have to know the terrain to understand this better. The road is a long
deserted stretch of road with only a couple of houses on it. It is only wide
enough for one car. The road is straight but it is hilly in parts. The spot
where the curve is and the spot where we saw the light is very hilly and you
can see pretty far down the road. The light we saw was steady and not moving
up and down like a vehicle would on such up and down hills. It was really
