Hello, im new to this village, however, im so glad im finally here!
Ok, one of my questions is in regards to my consistent experiences with face clocks. This is what happens... and not every single time. Just every once and a great while, however, I have had a few times where it was like pretty close together.
So ill go to glance at a clock (never digital, only a face clck when happens) and as soon as I do the second hand will be on its first tick, itll complete that tick but instead of going where its suppose to go (which is on its its next tick) the second hand will actually skip backwards... JUST FOR ONE SECOND.... and then continue ticking normal again! I cant really talk about this with anyone bc no one has ever experienced this ; ) that ive asked before. And no one really looks at a clock the exact second as you, if you think about it. So I could never be like "OMG DID YOU SEE THAT!"

So does anybody know what this might mean? Obviously its specifically for me. But what does this sign say? And is there a reason for this sign to tell me at cirtain times? Because theres NOOO WAY this could be a coincide or the clock itself when its happened thoughout my entire life, meaning maney and all kinds of different clocks.
thank you soo much!!

If this is only with one clock, then something is wrong with the clock. Not sure what it could mean if its with every clock.

I've had that happen to me with clocks, where the hand skips back. lol And keep looking to catch it again within the next minute. Never happens. I always just assume that the batteries are going dead on it.

Haven't even got to the clock part yet.....

 

I'm still confused by someone who says their name is Crystal and has a photo of a woman as their avatar but has marked "Male" as the Gender......

My grandma, just after she passed on in 2006, played with the alarm on my battery operated, manual clock a few times. I've had the clock since 1987, and the only time the alarm time shifted 15 minutes late was twice just after she died. I thanked her for the sign but asked for her to stop fiddling with it, since running late 15 minutes is disruptive to my schedule. The alarm time stayed put.

 

If it's not a malfunctioning clock, then it may just be someone you love who's passed on who's doing it to say 'hi'.

Oh my, I didnt know my profile was checked as a man! Im so far from being a man. Nor have I ever been one. My mistake. Ill correct it. But as far as what I asjed about the clock.. this has happened my whole life but never consistently. I mean at LEAST once a year. But always a different clock. Ive only had my grandparents pass and they have both come to me to say goodby at different times and in different ways. But when they were still alive it happened to me. As a matter a fact, the first time this happened as I was littl3 was at their house. Anyway.. thank you for all the feed back. Any more please tell me.

Oh, Good, that really had me going there as the photo most assuredly did not look Masculine in any way, shape or form. :)

 

If it was one clock I'd tell you to buy a new clock. The Government clocks would do that when they were about to go bad. Since it's more than one clock and a number of times and no one else sees it, I would say it's something meant for you or something only you can perceive.

Though I have had days when it seems the clock was running backwards...... LOL!

 

Most of those days were in Basic and combat zones.  :)

As logan suggests, try changing the clock. Are there any magnetic influences near the clock? It may affect the works.

 

If you rule out the scientific influences, it might be a spirit friend who likes to "wink" at you. I don't know the setup, but if you don't feel scared with the clock problems, then *if* there is a spirit influence, then it's probable a friendly one.

Hello:

 

This is most interesting, what you have said about your grandmother. When I was a boy I used to go and stay with my grandmother on Friday nights. My grandfather died when I was very young and Grandma lived alone for nearly a decade before she went into a hospice. (she lived to be 98) After she went into the hospice, nearly everything she owned beyond her clothes and family photos, was donated to charity (Grandma was a VERY devout Catholic) She had a picture that hung in her apartment for decades before I was born, it shows up in family photos from the 1940's, It is a pastel of a church in Europe.

 

Where, I do not know. But even when I was very young I loved that picture because it made me think of Paris. Which is quite odd because I have never been there. The thing is, grandma went into the hospice in the mid 80's and the picture vanished. Not at all surprising, but I was very sad that no one had attempted to save it. She died in 1991. I drove out to Wisconsin with my own family to visit in 2010 and the picture was hanging in my mom's dining room.

 

I was fit to be tied. I asked her where it had been all these years, my mom said she went into the basement to look for something or another a year or so previously, and found the picture behind a chair. Oh....So....this picture sat...behind a chair in the basement from about 1986 until 2008 or 9 and no one noticed it?

 

The thing is, my dad refinished the basement in the early 80's, It's where we had our family Christmas celebrations into the 2000's. If that picture had been there, just sitting behind a chair for all that time, SOMEONE would have noticed it. I asked (begged) my mom if I could have it. It now hangs in our living room. I'd include a photo of it, but I don't know how. I can't think of anything else that would remind me of my grandmother as much as that picture does. I loved it as a child, I still love it.

cats, if you have a printer with a scanner built in, scan the pastel into your computer, then upload it to PhotoBucket and post a link here. If not, they shouldn't be too terribly expensive to buy, and you don't really need to get one with a whole load of extra features beyond the scanner. I've got an Epson 410, and it was... Frack, probably about $150 and has the scanner/copier, printer and camera card slot. Personally, I love it.

Ah....The next item on my "must buy" list. It has been for some time. But, in the meantime, I do have a photobucket account (although I havn't used it for some time) If I can find my way back into it I should be able to post photos off my family albums that I have on my computer..

 

As you may have noticed, I post after everyone else has gone beddy-by (yeah, I have kids. But they are much older now! I don't talk like that anymore! No, really!) I work an odd shift at a local hospital, It starts half-way through the second shift, and ends half-way through the third. The hospital has 950 employees, and I'm the only one with a shift like this. Not that I'm going to grouse about it, it's full time with insurance for the whole family! Anyway, that's why I show up here at odd hours.

That I completely get, Cats. My work shift recently got shifted from 2:30-11pm to 9:30am - 6pm. 

And I know the feeling of having the must buy list. I find things find a way on whether I like it or not.

So....I went to photobucket and...because I haven't used my account within the last two years, it MAY have been deep six'ed. I tried to access it and kept running into a wall. I sent an email to their help wonks and I'm waiting for the reply. The thing is, this picture is large, a scanner would not help, so I photographed it with my digital camera and went to photobucket and...there I am, going round and round.I hope to get this fixed so I can post my cemetery photos here! That would be a treat! Um....at least for me.smile.png

I'd like to see them as well. 'Course, that just may be the lover of creepy things in me talking, but hey, post away!

 

As for the scanner/printer, it'd still be a good idea, especially come the ever-dreaded tax time, if only to make copies of your tax returns for your records, and to scan them into your computer as well.
