A Pleasant Evening – Part 3

And I use History Channel for as much information, most of which might just be conjecture, but sure is interesting to me. I believe that something or someone helped our early people’s build the structures in the middle east. For instance, how were the pyramids built without  help or how could the builders have more knowledge in how to build these structures?  

Even our builders today have no idea or knowledge 0f how  this was done. Almost all ancient peoples spoke of their gods who “came from the sky”.

Well, I do believe that UFOs once arrived here from somewhere other than our planet. I think we are “star children”, many of whom were “designed” from the ancient gods, those that UFO followers on the History Channel, call “Ancient Alien Gods”. 

I once tried to present my belief in ancient aliens as ancient gods but the rolling eyes and snickers caused me to give up trying to share part of my belief system. (I can do it here because I can’t see the rolling eyes, or hear the snickers and you can just click the tab to close the site. Of course, feel free to connent.

 Through my perusal of ancient texts, books by Zecharia Sitchin, and the series Ancient Aliens from the History Channel, I have kept my brain busy, my exploring self unsated; I don’t apologize for my interest, nor for my acceptance that UFOs exist. 

I know many will say that Shirley believes in conspiracy theories or something equally as stupid. Perhaps. But no one believed that washing one’s hands before a doctor were to see his patient would prevent infection. It seems as if our entire repugnican government and it’s leader do not believe that global warming exists, and this in contrast to the innumerable scientific evidence that proves it is true. 

I have seen UFOs only once in my life. I was a believer before that night in 1958, but I believe even more so, especially since my father, a Lt. Colonel in the USAF, suggested that the South Korea airbase pilots were scrambled to explore the incoming UFOs. I don’t expect that I will  live long enough to know the truth about UFOs, or Alien Gods but I have the rest of my life to eagerly learn as much as I can

A Pleasant Evening – Part2

The following day, while travelling in the back of Daddy’s car we began the discussion again. Volunteering, my father said that while he was Provost Marshall at an air base in South Korea, there were innumerable scrambles by US pilots ordered to follow whatever it was that flew over or around the base.

Hot dog. If my father, a no nonsense multi-war veteran could discuss and verify that UFOs exist, I was certainly going to pursue more about these flying structures.

Well I know I have been misunderstood by women most of my life because I have not been the ‘ideal” woman. I absent myself from small-talk with others and spend time in the ham shacks of our amateur radio friends; most of them are male. Of course. 

But, then if you are a wife with a life outside the home and do not have any children, nor can you exchange a full-range of  pictures of your children, since you have none, you are not being “feminine”.    

The only thing I wasn’t interested in was someone else’s husband. Just try to prove that to a room full of females whose husbands have moved to the ham shack. If they weren’t on  






the golf course, they were in the ham shack, talking to someone else. But, one must remind wives who complain, that her husband may be secured in the ham shack, but he IS home most of the time. 😊

And so many hams were UFO nuts. Yes, many participated in the conspiracy theory genre, but a lot were avid believers, many because of the contacts they had while hamming with people who had seen a UFO. (And in the years of space travel, many of my ham friends actually did record comments between the astronauts and ground control, on transmit channels closed to the public. 

There were times when comments cloaked in speech that intimated that UFOs or entities were described. (One of the super traits some hams have is the ability to monitor communication channels not open to the public.)

The History Channel. Now that is an awesome place. If you like to drive into the frozen North, or search for the Yeti, or (check the history channel) you can watch on a weekly basis, all the completed series. If you want you can stay with the History Channel from the time you awaken until bed time. Never a boring moment. Ancient Aliens is one great series.

A Pleasant Evening, part 1


It was a pleasant evening. About 78 degrees. 7 PM, and a delicious

dinner had just been consumed by the 4-people sitting on the farmhouse

steps. Three of those people knew each other very well, having spent

their high school days together, graduating just 8 years before.

The fourth person, my husband, the native New Yorker who regaled my

Mother with stories about his misunderstanding that those big dogs

lumbering around all the Pennsylvania farms were, in fact cows, not big dogs.

‘Course she didn’t believe him, but she did enjoy his stories.


When one finds one’s self outside in rural PA after sunset, in 1958,

the night sky is awesome. Millions of stars twinkle in the firmament and

no one can imagine that this view will be gone very shortly because of

the new Interstate and all of its lighting, or the regional high schools

growing up now with their lighted football fields, etc. and many newer 

structures being opened in town and all the night lights that will occur

before the next 8 years come. (I sometimes wonder if this is when we

finally, lost paradise.)


As we sat there reminiscing about our school years and life as it is

now, we were abruptly interrupted by a strange occurrence. Overhead were

6 glowing, circular objects, one behind the other in a row. They were

lit by bright orange, and as they flew over our heads, we concurred

that we all saw grayish objects on the underside of each structure. We

could not determine how big they were because we didn’t know how high.

But fly they did or rather float might be a better term since we saw no

wings, tails or other depictions that would say “air plane”. Although

those gray things we saw on the underside of each object might be

considered some way to conceal landing gear.


During my research into various discussions of faith, beliefs, etc., I

had read stories about UFOs and was delighted to see these strange

flying objects that looked so much like how UFOs have been depicted. In

fact, I never went into the night without looking up, hoping to see a

UFO. My friends while expressing an interest in what we saw, had no

memory of hearing the word UFO, nor were they much interested.


When I realized that I would be moving to Fort Wayne, I was convinced

that because my niece lived “in the country” where it is dark at night,

and one can see millions of stars” I would be rewarded often with passing

UFOs. Unfortunately, I guess because of my 32 years in Florida and my “thinned

blood” even in August, it was too cold for me to stay outside more than a few very

short minutes. I’ve not looked up since, mainly because it is rare that I even venture out at night

 (And it has been 52 years since I saw those orange orbs. Did I really expect to see them – or a similar group – now?

I was blessed with a wonderful husband who, while he studied more mundane

data on line than I did, was interested in my research findings, and never lessened

their import on me. So after we left my friend’s home, we entered into a very

animated and anxious conversation.

End of Part 1.
