Grey Translucent Being Studying Flowers in my Garden!
I arrived back from work at my house and after parking the car in my garage walked to my front door. I was amazed to see what looked like a typical grey alien being in my garden but I also noted the following. It was translucent, like not completely solid. It was taller than most reports of these things.. approx. 5 ft tall.. and it seemed incredibly thin and had a very pointed chin.. more so than what I would class as a typical 'grey'. It appeared to be studying plants and from this point on I have no certain recollection of events.

It didn't appear interested in me and carried on studying the plants. I have two memories of walking into my house. One is where I walk in and go straight to bed. The other is one of alerting the dogs and making them check outside... which they do not as they don't want to go (too sleepy). My wife was working till 7am and I was in bed asleep when she arrived.

The strange thing is that the next day, I had no recollection of any of this. In fact it wasn't until some 20 hrs later that I remembered it. I told my wife as soon as I saw her the following morning when she got in from work (monday am) and she thought I was insane.. for not mentioning it sooner! The other thing of note was that the following night I wasn't at all afraid to go out into the dark garage or garden. I never saw any UFO or craft on this night (although I have seen many previously) and I had the distinct impression this thing belonged here and had as much right to be here as I did. I have the sense it came from below the ground.

I should also point out that I did see a large white light sweep across the sky the following evening as I was walking my dogs.

I'm confused - and it all appears very dream like and not real now. Anyways - I draw no conclusions - the info is just here for the record.
