A 5HR DRIVE TOOK 7 PLUS HOURS ROUTINE DRIVE. LOST 2HRS NO EXPLANATION

A FRIEND HAD ME INTERESTED ABOUT INCIDENTS HAPPENING AROUND BRENHAM TEXAS AND HWY 290. IN 1978 I WAS STATIONED AT FORT HOOD TEXAS BUT MY HOME TOWN IS PORT ARTHUR TEXAS. I WOULD DRIVE HOME AS ANY OF YOU MAY HAVE GUESSED... ON PAYDAY WEEKEND.. MILITARY PAYDAY WEEKEND TO BE EXACT. I WOULD TAKE THAT 5HR DRIVE ...LEAVE ABOUT 6PM GET HOME ABOUT 11 PM AND HEY .. I WAS YOUNG SO I COULD GO OUT AND PARTY WITH MY SISTERS. I ALWAYS MARVELLED AT HOW THE STARS SEEMED SO CLOSE LOOKING TO MY RIGHT ON A CLEAR NIGHT .. THAT WITH THE ROLLING HILLS AND WHITE PICKET FENCES JUST ALWAYS CAUGHT MY ATTENTION. THERE WERE NEVER MANY CARS ON THAT ROAD WHEN I TRAVELED IT BUT THE STAR SHOW WAS BEAUTIFUL. ON NIGHT ON MY WAY HOME WHILE PASSING DOWN 290 NEAR BRENHAM.... I WAS AWARE THAT I WAS PULLING OFF OF THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WITH NO MEMORY OF EVER STOPPING. AS I WAS PULLING ONTO THE ROAD I ADJUSTED MY REAR VIEW MIRROR BECAUSE OF SOME BRIGHT LIGHT THAT WAS BLINDING ME. I WAS IN A CONFUSED ! STATE AT THAT TIME AND IT REALLY DIDNT DAWN ON ME UNTIL I WAS ABOUT 5 MILES DOWN THE ROAD. I STARTED QUESTIONING EVERYTHING...WHY DID I STOP... THE LIGHT...AND TO MY SURPRISE.. WHEN I GOT INTO HOUSTON .. I NOTICED A BILLBOARD OF BANK DISPLAYING THE TIME... I COULDNT BELIEVE IT BUT I HAD LOST 2HRS THAT I STILL CAN NOT ACCOUNT FOR. WHEN I ARRIVED HOME AT 1 AM INSTEAD OF 11PM MY SISTER ASKED ME ABOUT WHY WAS I LATE. I TOLD HER ABOUT THE LOST 2HRS AND SUCH BUT SHE SAID THAT I MUST HAVE BEEN TIRED AND FELL ASLEEP.. NOT. NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. I WAS 18YRS OLD THEN AND I AM 53YRS OLD NOW AND TO THIS DAY IT STILL HAUNTS ME. I HAVE NEVER COME TO GRIPS WITH THE INCIDENT BECAUSE IT IS STILL EMBEDDED IN MY SUBCONSCIOUS MIND I GUESS. I HAVE HAD VIVID DREAMS ABOUT IT BUT WHEN I GET CLOSE TO SEEING THE WHO... THE DREAM FADES AND I WAKE UP IN A COLD SWEAT. THIS IS ALL FACT... I DIDNT SEE A UFO.... I HAD A BLINDING LIGHT IN MY REAR VIEW BUT THE MAIN THING IS THAT I LOST 2 HRS OF MY LIFE AND CAN NOT RECOLLECT WHAT HAPPENED! .

THIS I S THE HONEST TO GOD TRUTH. IF ANYONE WANT TO CONTACT ME ABOUT IT....
