Voices In the Attic
I think I may be "going 'round the bend" as they say.
Actually, I'm sure there is a logical explanation, but if there is I haven't discovered it yet.
This is the mystery:
When I sit at my computer desk, I hear voices. Can't make out the words, but there are definitely voices - like a radio perhaps? The computer desk backs on the wall between my living room and bed room. And when I am in bed at night - yep - I hear voices.
My first thought was that some time ago, someone must have been working in the attic and left a radio turned on up there. (I have never been in the attic in this house, since it is only accessible by ladder.) Understand, I was in bed at the time and half asleep. But even half asleep, I quickly rejected that idea, since I don't believe there's an electrical outlet up there, and a battery would have gone dead long since. Besides, the only one who has been up there in the past eight years has been my son, who installed a ceiling fan for me ages ago. and I haven't heard these voices until fairly recently.
I suppose it really is a radio, and that there's some kind of quirk that brings the sound into my home somehow. I'd love to know how it's happening.
I remember when we lived in North Cape May on a very busy street, back in 1978, we used to get police calls coming through our TV every so often. That was pretty weird. Haven't run into this sort of phenomenon since then.
These voices really annoy me - mostly because I can't tell what they are saying. I'd really like to be able to identify them.
Hmmmm - I do have satellite dishes on the roof......
And there are lots of others around.....
I wonder if there have been any UFO sightings lately.
