Well my story isn’t a horror story but I had to tell it. Not sure if anyone saw it that night when I did But here I go.
It was a beautiful night in Port Lavaca, TX. I was up with my brothers running around the living room of my grandma’s house I stopped to rest and put out my face against the screen window to get some fresh air that was blowing. I looked up at the stars that night it was so amazing when I noticed something moving. I figured it was a shooting star but it wasn’t, it seemed to be coming down and closer. When it finally passed by the window I was amazed at what I was seeing.
During the 1970’s, terrified residents all over the state of Texas reported seeing an enormous flying creature which later became known as the “Texas Big Bird”.

“I had the damnedest experience once back in high school. This was in Northeast Houston around 1992. I was playing Frisbee with friends in the street of a typical suburban neighborhood. This was probably early afternoon on a weekend or perhaps just after school on a bright sunny day.
As I jumped up to catch an over thrown Frisbee, out of the blue appeared this huge bird just above me. It was at most 20 feet off the ground, and appeared much closer. I didn’t see its head, but I saw its legs and thought they were as big as human legs.

J, a 56-year-old man, was sitting in a chair in front of his home at about 5:30 am having a cigarette and a cup of coffee. J is a level headed person, doesn’t spook easily and doesn’t buy into any of the paranormal hype that’s so popular today. He feels there is an explanation for everything. Or, at least he did.
After a few minutes he began to feel uneasy, but couldn’t figure out why because there was nothing about the morning to feel uneasy about. It finally dawned on him that he felt like he was being watched. He glanced around but there was nobody there, and then he saw it. Hanging on the light pole across the street was what could only be described as a Thing.
“When I was between 15-17 (1996-1998) years old, and living in The Colony, TX (about 20 minutes from downtown Dallas, and still small towns back then), a group of friends and I decided it would be a great idea to go to Zion Cemetery in Frisco, TX.
It was one of the last weekends before school let out for summer, and some of us were moving away, or wouldn’t have time to hang out in the summer.

“Mysterious ghost lights haunt this isolated road in the heart of the Big Thicket. A unique part of Hardin County is also one of its most mysterious, fascinating and out-if-way places: The Ghost Road.
The Ghost Road is situated in the heart of the Big Thicket. It begins at a bend on Farm-to-Market Road 787 that is 1.7 miles north of the intersection of FM 787-770, near Saratoga.
Trees growing on both sides offer a natural canopy as drivers travel down the long dirt road. Its original name is the Bragg Road, named after the town that was in that area at one time. The name Ghost Road was attached in this century after a number of tales that center around a ghostly light that is said to be seen on certain occasions at night.

“If you want to scare someone, you take them down Stagecoach Road. At night you stop the car, roll down the windows, and turn off the lights. The very last time I was there, we did this. We then felt the back end of the truck go down, like something was stepping on the back bumper.
Mrs. Delburt Gregg of Greggton, Texas, told of her encounter with a shapeshifting creature in the 1960 issue of Fate. The other surveyed sightings below are of creature that looked like man-wolves but no one have seen one becoming another. Mrs. Gregg have not seen a man turned into a wolf but she has actually came closer then anyone else in telling a tale that sounds like a chapter from a werewolf novel than a real life experience.
Mrs. Gregg said that one night in 1958 when her husband was on a business trip, she moved her bed close to a screen window hoping to catch some cool breeze from a thunderstorm brewing on the south western horizon. She heard a scratching sound from the window shortly after she fell asleep. In a flash of a lightning, she saw a huge, shaggy, wolf-like creature clawing at the screen and staring at her with baleful, glowing, slitted eyes. She saw its bared white fangs.
