The Shirt Names Are The Same Coincidence

Shirts from the laundry

A very short coincidence story today.

Baltimore: When Samuel S. Strouse got his shirts back from the laundry, out fell a printed card:

We have personally finished and inspected this shirt. 
We hope you are pleased. 
Sarah and Beatrice.

Strouse was pleased - and surprised as well. By coincidence his mother's name is Sarah and his wife's name is Beatrice.

Suspected Of Stealing Umbrellas Coincidence

Umbrellas in the rain

An amusing story today from Gabrielle.

"I wonder what you think of this, Mike, is it a coincidence?

I was in a big London store and inadvertently picked up someone else's umbrella from the counter. An extremely cross lady pointed out my error and red-faced I apologised.

The incident reminded me that I needed to buy a present for an old aunt and thought an umbrella would be ideal. I headed to the right department and, as it had started raining outside, I actually bought two umbrellas, one for myself.

Carrying my two umbrellas I got on a bus to take me home and sat in the only spare seat. The woman next to me was the one whose umbrella I had accidentally picked up in the store.

She looked at me grim faced, stood up to get off the bus saying, "I congratulate you on your successful morning," while pointing at my two umbrellas.

I was the rightful owner of the umbrellas but for some reason I felt speechless and embarrassed. I wonder what the meaning of this coincidence was!?

A Warning Sent To Him By His Deceased Cousin

Message from the spirit world

An interesting story follows which some may find hard to believe, but it is from a no nonsense serving police officer. It's about a warning received from the spirit world.

"My husband and I are both police officers. He is the most pragmatic, realistic man you could meet.

In July last year, he came in from his shift after midnight and put his car keys on the bedside cabinet. At 3am the keys flew across the room, waking us both, and I accused him of swiping them with his hand. He said that it wasn't him, and that was that.

We were flying to London later that day. As I was driving to the airport, he kept telling me to watch my speed, mind that car, and was generally irritating. Then he said, "We are going to be in a car crash today." At the airport I gloated that I'd managed to get us there in one piece.

We landed at Heathrow at 5pm and got picked up by a friend. As I got into the middle of the back seat, I couldn't find the belt buckle so I wasn't going to bother. My husband insisted I dig it out and gave me 'The Glare'.

Five minutes later I shouted: "That guy hasn't seen us!" as another vehicle sped across the lanes.

The impact was fairly substantial. I dislocated my  neck and pulled the crucial ligament in my left knee. My husband fractured his sternum and three ribs. The Fire Brigade said that if I hadn't been wearing my seat belt, I would have been out through the windscreen

Later on in A&E, I asked my husband how he had known what would happen.

He told me that his recently deceased cousin, Shane, had thrown the keys, and that he was there with their grandmother. They had told him not to go to London as he would be in terrible pain, When I asked why he had still gone. He said that if he hadn't, then I wouldn't have worn a seat belt and would probably have been killed.

If anyone else but my husband had come out with this story, then I would have laughed at it."

Two Fatal Family Crashes In Exactly The Same Place

Why?

Sometimes coincidences or synchronicity make you scratch your head and wonder 'why' something or other happened. This is one such true example.

George Michael Graham, 20, of Brisbane, Australia was killed as the motor cycle he was riding crashed into a pole. His 14 year old sister, riding pillion, also died.

A tragic accident, Sadly Mr Graham left a wife, Gloria Graham, and a four month old son.

Five months after the fatal accident Gloria was travelling on the back of a motor cycle, driven by her brother-in-law, Kevin Holcroft. The machine suddenly skidded on loose gravel and they crashed into a pole - the very same pole that her husband had fatally crashed into.

Kevin Holcroft died from his injuries and Gloria required two emergency operations to save her life.

Makes you wonder.

An Alien In The Wood

Alien hidden in the woods

Today is a Bank Holiday (Public holiday) in the UK so a quick photo as a post. I saw this alien last week while at Malpas, near Truro in Cornwall. There he was on a pile of logs by the river. I guess he'd settled in there as he had somewhere to hide and access to water. Couldn't see his UFO anywhere though.

The Wall Opened Up And She Saw Her Dead Mother

I seem to be on a roll with stories about people seeing their loved ones in some sort of spirit appearance after they have died. And it's not a new thing! Here's a story I've dug up from way back in 1869 by a Mrs. Ellis.

"On March 11, 1869, I was giving my little children their dinner at half-past one o'clock. As I was in the act of serving macaroni and milk from a tureen, I raised my head, and as I did so the wall opposite me seemed to open, and I saw my mother laying dead on her bed, in her little house.

Flowers were at her side and on her breast; she looked calm, but unmistakably dead, and the coffin was there.

It was so real that I could scarcely believe that the wall was brick and mortar, and not a transparent window.

I ought to say that when I was married my mother made me promise, as I was leaving home, to let her know if I died, and she would try to find some way of communicating to me the fact of her death - supposing that circumstances prevented the usual methods of writing or telegraphing."

Penpals Met By Concidence After 50 Years

Here's a coincidence I came across in an old issue of the Australian newspaper The Sydney Morning Herald. I have altered some of the wording slightly but otherwise the story is the same.

Emma Wiles, from NSW, visited a bowling club at Paddington, London, while on a world tour with her husband.

As the men played, Emma started chatting with a woman member and told her she was keen to know about Paddington.

"Why are you so interested?" the other asked.

Emma replied: "I went to school at Paddington, Sydney, and our English teacher suggested we write to schools in London with, if possible, the same names as ours. I corresponded with a girl named Emma Forsyth."

Emma Wiles says her companion turned quite pale, and then said, "You are Emma Hart and I am the Emma you wrote to."

Tears welled in their eyes, so much to say, so much to talk about. The pen-pal episode had begun 50 years ago, and now the two women called Emma had met by 'chance'.
