|blue object near offramp on I 80...electro-effects to car
i think I may have sent a form to NICAP on this way back when. Is NICAP still in service? I was returning from playing for a dance. By the way I am not a drinker except on NYears Eve. Far and few between back then too. A friend was with me but she fell asleep just seconds before I saw this brilliant blue like a arc welders light on off ramp grassy area at I 80 interchange at Overton NE. My dashlights turned red. There were other reports of strange lights in area bt were attributed to weather inversions. 67 and 68 were banner years for ufos in midwest. Saw some other strange lights but nothing since. 10 years before that I was at the site of an alleged abduction near Kearney NE. Airforce debunked that as a hoax and the man was rumored as mental case BUT I saw his file. I was later told it was impossible that I would see his file but a lay at the courthouse was evidently as curious as I and she showed me when I asked. The paper from a mental evaluation said he was normal. Later in 1990 I wrote a song about it. In 1993 I wrote a screenplay which became a published audio book. Although most of book was satire; the account was quite accurate. Since my ufo encounter I have become quite a inspired writer and have had dreams that would come true. My latest creation is the "Millennium Song" published lyric in a national country music roundup publication Jan 2000. A group Millennium.org should have that in there archive. I also met a actress known for her interest in ufos in early 1970s. That has also inspired my interest. I was a rockabilly on tv in the 50s and folk blues writer from 60s till now. I also work as a custodian at a school in area. I sent my story to Hollywood in 1993 and had good comments from one director. But no movie has been produced. I however felt like I might be the real mister millennium considering all the strange things that have happened. It was probably just a coincidence that "Millennium" tv show and X Files came a couple of years after my book circulated the studios.
