Rickie Traeger: I wanted to share a memory that involves my dad and uncle Ray




I wanted to share a memory that involves my dad and uncle Ray, that I haven’t told many people.  I still remember this like it happened yesterday.  I was sitting here and I was just thinking about this, so I figured I would blog about it. 

Years ago when I was growing up my dad and uncle Ray would take us kids out to the park to go fishing all the time.  My dad and uncle Ray loved to fish. So we would go a lot as we were growing up.

One day we were out at the park and a storm was rolling in. The weather alerts were going off saying to seek shelter and all that good stuff. Well we were out at the lake fishing and didn’t see the storm right away.  A short time later these dark black clouds come rolling in.  My dad and uncle Ray said we were going to stay there and fish until the storm was right on top of us.

That is exactly what happened. We fished until the storm was pretty much on top of us. Then we all packed into the vehicle to leave.  We left the park and were headed back home.

On the way back home it was lightning and thundering pretty heavy. Pretty intense storm with a lot of rain, lightning and thunder.  We get to the area of Harlem and Alpine.  All of a sudden out of nowhere…

A BOLT OF LIGHTNING STRUCK OUR VEHICLE! 

Yes, a bolt of lightning hit our vehicle!  Scared the crap out of us all, LOL. Thankfully no one was touching any metal inside the vehicle.  The lightning struck the hood/windshield are of the vehicle and did some damage.

I remember this like it happened yesterday.  And it is one of those whacky moments that I will never forget with my dad and uncle Ray.  Miss you guys. Love You!  Hope you guys are having fun up in the heavens above.

 








Rickie Traeger: Project Blue Book :) 




  Project Blue Book 🙂 

Oh how I love that tv show!    I think it is cool to see they started the season off with the Roswell episode. I think they did that because they know many people relate to the Roswell Incident.  So it captures the interest of many.  It was a pretty good episode.

There are already a few things that caught my attention. The relation ship with Susie and Quinn, the UFO investigator figuring out who Mimi is, and the whole Harding thing.  I liked how they at the end added the man who shot the alien as it tried to flee.  That is reported to actually be true. There were reports of 2 crash sites. And at the 2nd site, there were reports of aliens at that site. And reports of the military shooting one as it tried to flee.  As you know, nothing is confirmed, lol.  But there are reports of that actually happening.

Watching the show, you really have to have an open mind to things.  I for one have an open mind 🙂

You should too, check it out Tuesday nights at 9pm 🙂
