I barely remember part of two dreams from last night, with the first dream taking place out-of-town with my family during a trip, and we went to a hotel; but I can not remember why we went out-of-town or where we were, but it seemed like we were taking a short vacation but I can not remember most of the details of the dream.
At some point we left the hotel to go somewhere outside near the woods to do something/explore, I just remember it starting to get dark outside, and maybe we felt that something might be stalking us; and so we probably got a bit worried/afraid as we tried to find our back to our automobile.
At some point we found our way back to the automobile and on our way back to the hotel my dad got a call on his mobile phone from one of his family members, who that said that one of our uncle’s or great-uncle’s on my dad’s side of the family had died recently; and that someone reported/said that they think that they saw someone/something moving in/around his house during the night, which was located at a graveyard in D.
My dad said that he/we would check his house when we got back to D, and I remember imagining what the house looked like at night in the graveyard; and I felt a bit afraid when thinking about it.
I though up strategies for us searching the house during the night like: each of us having a blunt weapon (instead of bladed weapons), each of us using shield (trashcan top, pot top, et cetera), one or more of us having a taser and/or pepper spray, each of us having flashlights, two of us being look-outs to make sure no one leaves or arrives at the house (my brother D&D would be the look-outs), and the rest of us would go inside quietly in formation covering all of our flanks & using hand-signals to communicate.
I imagined the house having a lot of junk and hiding places, so I predicted that it would be a place where we could easily be attacked since we would probably be moving through a lot of junk in tight places with many hiding spots, and we would not have much time to react; especially in the dark.
At some point we returned to D and we went to the house during the night following my plan, but to our surprise the neighbors & their kids were outside; and so we stopped to talk to them about the situation, and this made me feel more comfortable.
They either told us that they had not seen anyone or anything around the house at night or that they were not sure, and then we searched the house & probably found only evidence that maybe a family member had done some cleaning/organizing/whatever at the house probably; but I am not sure, and that is all that I can remember of this dream.
The second dream took place during the day and I was at an old plantation style house that had just been sold for a very low price or was given to someone who inherited the house, the person who now owned the house looked somewhat like the actor James Franco, and several people in the neighborhood were there as well; and he was letting us tour the house and/or we were going to help him move in/clean it and/or he was going to let us stay there too.
The house was several stories tall and was old but in good enough condition to live in, the man who now owned it seemed to be from a wealthy family and he had recently probably finished college, and he was the relaxed type who wanted to enjoy life/himself; and so he was going to be having parties/celebrating his new house for the next few days or the entire week.
Many people came to party/celebrate slowly and an old man arrived telling us about his traveling casino show or whatever it was called that he was going to set up in town soon, and he wanted us to tell other people about it; and this old man kept coming back each day, and he seemed to realize that spreading the word about his traveling casino show at this house was a good idea.
He even brought several boxes of pizza to the house, maybe Pizza Hut pizza (I am not sure, the boxes were a brownish color with words/logos on the top in other colors), but I did not find out that the pizza was for everyone until later that night when most of it was gone.
Slowly the man seemed to have started using the house as the location of his traveling casino show, since so many people were coming to the house, and the owner did not seem to mind him staying there so far; and so he probably slowly put all of his casino equipment in parts of the house.
At some point the old man wanted to calibrate his casino machines and so he asked me to help, he said that if I won money that he would give me the money as long as it was not that much, and so I tried a few games on some of the casino machines and won $1,000; but that was too much so the old man gave me $100, and thanked me for helping him calibrate his casino machines.
I think that I was probably waiting until the celebration week was over before moving my stuff into the house, anyway there were parties for several days, and one day I went to my parent’s yard which was in the neighborhood; but things looked different and there were small ponds in my parent’s yard.
Several young men followed me to the yard as we walked past the ponds toward the back steps, but I noticed a snake in the water with horizontal stripes with several colors like red/black/white who could flatten its entire body & make it wider; and then I started seeing other snakes in the water & on land slowly (snakes slowly appearing is a somewhat common dream theme I have sometimes for some unknown reason, the snakes usually do not attack me), and the young men seen them too.
I went inside to tell my family to be careful of the snakes outside, and then we sneaked past the snakes back to the house & I think that the old man was going to start his casino show later that day or the next day; but I woke up.
