Its been a week now. Quiet...and snowing out, makes it dead quiet though I can't sleep. Still listening for the sound of metal scraping across the floor and howls from my cat though they have stopped for some reason. The 21rst I took delivery of my baby. Yeah, that's what I thought but..well. Driving her home it was dark, cold and blustery.. Aspen and birch leaves blowing everywhere making a whispery song that was cold... passed a pizza hut buck on the side of the road and she died.. Coasted to a stop and rolled back until the missus' and I were even with the roadkill muley. I cranked her up and the heater..instead of blowing that new car smell, sorta snorted... a taint of death from the hood vent I thought. We went on home without incident.
*There's that draggin sound again..like..285 70r17 sized fingernails on a chalkboard but its metal on concrete. Faint.. Funny, the coyotes in the valley behind the house don't howl anymore.
Woke up to start chainsawing logs up for 2 new bed frames. I didn't yank the brake on the Jeep. Bastard rolled back and the hitch is stuck in the garage door. Well, I can hammer it out. Red stuff on the floor. Strange..I don't remember parking the van in this spot, must have been the kids parked it overnight. It leaks trannie fluid. Back to work... Have to love a Husky, eats logs like styrofoam. Teeth biting, the roar of 50 ccs in hand.. "Scrape.." wozzat? I swear the jeep was parked straight.. Wife must have driven it to her parents..mud on the tires after I sprayed it down.
Cats been busy.. 8 mice on the doorstep. And darn..whats that smell? Skunk? Roadkill?.. time to open all the doors. Have to install this hardtop hoist today. Funny, I don't remember driving in any clay that red. What the heck did I drive the jeep through that was that color? Guess I'll sweep after I back that big boy out. Have to do the design of the "Moose From Hell" ..flaming eyes. LOL, that will be a hoot. Gold and black against the Cherry red. Heck yeah.
** WTH! Whats that noise?...
Oh..oh man, no way. Not Buttons, oh hell I didn't set the parking brake again. Jeep rolled back over my dog..oh nononono.. Pissed on his last tire did Buttons.
Buried Butts. Best fetching dog ever. Would go to hell and back for a ball. 200 feet down the hill behind the house into the ravine and back he would go. Little bugger was the 4x4 god of canines. Don't feel like sanding and finishing logs. Just beer and aimless staring. Freakin jeep. She's pretty though..almost metallic blood red when the sun is just right. Knocked the garage door back into shape. The wife and kids say they haven't touched her.. Yeah right. I don't park her just like so. Where's the red crap on the wheels come from? My wife said there were 2 elk and 3 deer "road pizza'd" on the hwy coming home. I told her, "Thats why I got that big honking bumper".
I hate being an insomniac... Hear the oldest teenager come in at weird hours and go "Now what?" Gotta go check.
Quiet downstairs..no lights. ??? Garage...WTH!? Its..its.. a HEAD! An effing cow head. "Lynn!".. "Wake Up!...KIDS!".... A faint tin ticking tickles my ears in the background.
Morning..no one knows anything. I think its one of the oldest boys stunts or a friend of theirs..no telling. Gotta get the mail.. Jeep smells funny, like a BBQ gone bad. Haven't checked the oil since its new. Wonder if there is room for a 2nd battery...
*thunk......thunk*...Whaaaa? Is this fur? smells like a slaughterhouse san's grill under this thing..Damn. Must have hit a possum or something, coon?"
Red tread marks keep getting closer to the kitchen door in the garage. Sounds...Can't describe. I didn't put a lift on the jeep but now it barely fits under the door. That grill insert.. it wasn't fangs..granted the jeeps red but that red? And the headlights...gone yellow..ish, with a catseye effect. I swear those Hella's didn't look that way when I put them on. Need to check the garage out also... Always hot in here, and ..well, I can't bitch. Haven't seen a mouse or bug in days. It... man, need a beer its so hot in here. I swear that SOB is eyeballing me...like, hungry...is that bright green stuff dripping down coolant? Looks like its drooling.....
Finally...Sleep, blessed slumber. Its over now. Man I hurt..Me and that John Deere wrangled that wrangler over the edge and in the ravine it went. Not sure how I'll explain it to my wife though. Witching Hour..love those orange and purple lights on the ceiling from the back porch.. Gotta love Halloween. And those dancing red ones..re..red? Whats that ..two red..like eyes, and the roar..scrabbling of rocks? Oh..oh noooo.......

My jeep is haunted because I hear voices coming through the uconnect Bluetooth! Lol!
My jeep might be haunted because my wife came running into our bedroom saying that someone tried to steal my jeep and that it was in the middle of our parking lot, I'm pretty sure it just wanted to go for a drive!

I don't think, I know "our" jeep is haunted! It's possessed my wife, completely taken her over in it's spell. Yep the "Dark Side" has taken over.
She has gone from a well dressed executive to a shorts and tee shirt girl. Jeep catalogs show up all the time in her name. Well kept hair has been replaced by a baseball cap, home decor has gone by the wayside, replaced by jeep accessories.
Weather turns nasty and she "has to" run errands in it.
She even calls it "The Black Widower"

God I miss that Jeep. Forgot the kinda Jeep, 80 SX4.
My jeep might be haunted b/c all my guages on the dash randomly turn on and off and choose when to work by themselves. Apparently the demon in my jeep is also hungry.... and it loves to eat blue jean belt loops.
