Dreams

The Yard | The Party | The Mafia

The Yard

My first dream started in my parent’s yard by the back door, I was looking at a magazine and maybe a laptop.

The magazine had three pictures of three women, and it only showed them from the neck down to the stomach; and I think the pictures were computer graphic images for a game.

I seemed to be trying to decide which one looked the best, and I would stop to watch two different Pauline Croze music videos while I was still trying to decide; the two music videos were fictional, and one had Ms. Croze wearing an orange sweater with a big collar & she had a guitar.

As I was doing that my, cousin ME came out of the house next door, and he stood on the porch holding a baby.

He said hello and I waved & said hello as well, and I think the baby was his new kid.

My mom walked by me and said that ME was on the porch, and I told her that I already knew that; and then she went into the house.

The weather looked like it might rain outside so ME & his baby went inside, and after that I was no longer in the dream; but I could see things like a camera person.

Keanau Reeves and the woman from the movie Constantine (Angela Dodson / Rachel Weisz) walked into our yard each holding a baby, and they walked toward the shed / storage building in our yard.

They walked in, I guess they were going inside to avoid the rain, and once inside they started talking.

Suddenly there was a noise coming from the sky, and Keanau was acting like his character Klaatu from The Day The Earth Stood Still.

He told the woman to close the door and so she did, and since the door was old & almost broken, she held the door knob (door handle) just in case.

As she was holding it someone started to grab the door knob from the other side, and they were stronger than her; so they pulled the door open.

It was a middle-aged man wearing some old military outfit, and he seemed confused and he was in a mild state of shock.

He grabbed the woman and started talking a bit crazy, and she knew the man; it was her long-lost dad.

I think a spaceship abducted him years ago, and it had just brought him back.

Another man ran up, who was the woman’s husband, and he pulled her dad off of her.

He seemed angry, like he did not like her dad, and the husband & the father looked at each other with looks like they were both in a competition against each other over who would spend the most time with her.

Then I woke up.

The Party

I had several other short dreams, but I can not remember them well; but I do know that several of them had family members in them mentioning my grandfather’s birthday.

I would see a family member and they would ask me if I was going to the party or something like that.

In at least two of the dreams I was taking a bath outside on a porch near the C Bank downtown in D, for some strange and unknown reason.

I was completely naked with soap and water standing on the porch, and with a water hose to wash myself off with. (Now that is odd!)

As I was taking a bath, two of my family members drove up in an SUV (sport utility vehicle), and they were my cousins TM and RE.

I ducked so that they could not see me completely naked, and I washed some of the soap off.

They asked me if I was going to the party, and I told them maybe.

Then they drove off, and I think something almost like this happened in two other dreams that night.

I woke up after that. (That was strange.)

The Mafia

This dream took place at night-time, at the park by the road that is near the tennis court.

By the road there was a low area like a dock, but without water, and it was made of concrete.

Two men were partying, one looked somewhat like Michael Corleone from The Godfather II and the other man looked somewhat like Joe Pesci.

They were celebrating the start of their mafia, and they were waiting for a few of their friends to arrive.

They heard an automobile drive by, so they thought it was their friends, and so they walked up the stairs to the road.

What they saw were their four friends, but they were lying dead in the road.

My guess was that the six of them were the leaders of the mafia, and now all the leaders except for them two were now dead.

They called for backup and a group of men and woman appeared, except these people were members and/or friends of the mafia that came for the party; so they had no idea of what had happened.

The two mafia leaders decided to try to keep the party going until backup arrived to deal with the situation, and so the two men told everyone to enjoy themselves.

A group of men were standing around talking and then some unknown woman who smelled like perfume and was wearing a pink dress I think, walked by slowly.

As she walked by, all the men close enough to smell her, started to walk toward her like they were under a spell / trance.

A few women that were at the party ran over and kept trying to keep them from walking too close to the woman, but the woman with the pink dress kept walking like she did not notice anyone; and she did not say anything.

I could smell the perfume, so I think I was in the dream, even though no one had said anything to me yet.

The smell did seem to affect me too, and I found myself feeling like I was under a spell/trance too; but the smell did not seem to have any affect on the women at the party.

The women at the party managed to hold the men back, until the woman with the pink dress walked off.

Then all the men went back went back to normal, and the women at the party started to talk to them.

There was a group of women that looked like models with long hair, and they were wearing some strange old and new style clothing that was like pajamas mixed with one piece bathing suits or something.

They looked very attractive and I was thinking about going to talk to one of them, but as I was walking over there to talk to them, I woke up.

The end,
