My Brother GC In The Air National Guard + Richard Gere Quits The CIA + Jennifer Lawrence In A Field = ?

I had a somewhat long dream that took place in at least five parts, it took place during a nice day, and I think that my brother GC was in the Air National Guard; and he was to try flying a plane for the first time after finishing his training that led to this point, so now it was time for real flight training and my former co-worker at the SB Mr. CG was his trainer/teacher for this part of the training.

Mr. CG was very laid back and seemed very unprofessional, the hanger was like an automotive shop with a small old & slow military airplane as the practice airplane, and only the two of them & I were there; and it did not feel military-like to me, it just seemed like an easy-money job, getting paid to not do much at all.

My brother GC was in the airplane, which had the wings folded up & they could be folded normally once it was time to fly the plane, practicing with the controls & his training et cetera while Mr. CG lazily stood around doing much of nothing; and I remember thinking that I need to get a job too and so I talked to Mr. GC about the topic of jobs, and he recommended talking with a well-connected business man who he knew.

At some point GC was ready to start flying but one of the wings would not fold down, so Mr. CG tried to figure out what was wrong but he did not seem to really know what he was doing (I did not really trust his abilities & I was a bit worried about GC’s safety), the practice flight was cancelled for the day; and so I drove to meet with the well-connected business man who(m) Mr. CG knew.

The second part of the dream involved me driving to a field on the side of the road that was like some of the areas on the side of the LC highway where a school is located, the business man had a building there that he was in, and I saw a man with dark brownish colored skin driving a tractor near the entrance; and so I stopped to ask him where the business man was, he told me, and then we talked a bit before I went inside the building to talk with the business man.

The business man briefly met with me, he did not really seem interested in helping me but since someone he knew sent me, he felt obligated to at least do something at least once to help me; and so he told me that he would call me if someone who(m) he knew had some work to be done, and I thanked him & I left and/or talked with the man working outside & then left.

The third part of the dream did not have me in the dream and the actor Richard Gere was the main character, and he had just quit the CIA or an intelligence agency like that without warning or telling anyone except for his wife; and they had packed up their stuff, bought a house, and had just arrived outside of that house to unpack.

Mr. Gere was still a bit frustrated/stressed and was complaining/talking out-loud about his quitting the CIA as he walked around the neighborhood near his new home, as this was happening the dream jumped to a different area where his CIA boss(es) were worried that something was wrong since they had not heard from him, and so they sent another CIA agent after him to see what was going on after they located Mr. Gere with a spy satellite and/or various other technologies.

The other CIA agent approached Mr. Gere’s new house but I can not remember if he talked with him or not, probably, and then he contacted the headquarters about the situation; since Mr. Gere seemed to be a veteran respected CIA agent, they decided to let him retire without bothering him about how he quit unofficially, and they decided not to bother him anymore & the agent left.

Mr. Gere thought that the CIA would be watching him and would maybe even protect him or something, so to test this prediction he pulled out his pistol and started shooting a tree in his yard loudly to see if any CIA agents would come to stop him and/or to see if the CIA agents would tell any police officers who respond to the shooting to let it go or not, but to his surprise no one came or responded; not even the police, and so this seemed to bother him a bit like he had been abandoned but it also probably gave him a sense of peace since he knew that he was not being watched/bothered.

The fourth part of the dream involved one of Mr. Gere’s ex-CIA bosses calling the business man from earlier and he asked him to send someone to help Mr. Gere and his wife unpack their stuff into their new home, and so the business man called me to do it; and I agreed, and I drove to Mr. Gere’s house.

Oddly things/the dream world had changed and Mr. Gere & his wife were replaced with two new younger dream characters and the husband was not a former CIA agent, I told them that I was sent to help them, and I got started helping them; and at some point they needed help installing some electronic-related stuff & so I called my cousin ME who I somehow knew lived not far away since he had experience with what they needed help with.

My cousin ME arrived ready to get the job done & was a bit cold as expected, I tried talking with him as he worked, but he did not talk very much as expected but we did talk a bit; and he finished at some point, and he was ready to be paid so that he could leave.

The wife had blond colored hair with whitish colored skin & seemed high maintenance, her husband mentioned that she had several dogs earlier, anyway the wife asked us to move a fish tank in the house for her; ME did not want to help but I convinced him to since the fish tank was pretty heavy for one person since it had water & fish in it probably, and the wife led us to where she wanted it.

Unfortunately she led us to the very top floor and I remember wondering where her dogs were, we reached the top floor and maybe behind some glass but I was not sure I saw her so-called dogs, and they were scary & looked like Death Hounds/Werewolves/Lions/Dogs; there was a male dog sleeping, the female dog was sleeping while several semi-sleeping puppies were drinking milk from their mom.

I remember being afraid and we quietly moved the fish tank to a bedroom and we went downstairs without waking the so-called dogs, fortunately, and the husband paid us what he had in his pockets $25 each or so; and they walked off to continue unpacking & call friends/family to come party/celebrate.

ME started complaining to me that we were not paid enough, I felt that the husband would pay us more later once he found the rest of his cash (he was wealthy from what I heard as we talked while unpacking), and we hung out on part of the first floor that was like a club with nice windows to the outside; and many people (friends, family, celebrities, rich people, et cetera) were coming to celebrate/eat/drink , and ME & I sat near a window at a table drinking & eating while ME complained about the money the entire time.

Eventually a man walked up to us with more money from the husband, so now I had about $50 – $70 and ME had $75- $100, and I thanked him; and ME finally stopped complaining, and he left & I left to report that the job was completed to the business man.

The fifth and last part of the dream involved me driving to the field & building where the business man was, I saw lots of people hanging out in the field and I saw the man working outside again from earlier, and I went inside the building & talked to the business man & thanked him; and then I went outside to talk with the man working outside & I helped him a bit as he was loading large rock-like things into or from a truck.

I then went to talk with some of the people hanging out in the field, some of them were former classmates of mine like P & his brother C(K) & there were a few celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence there, and I talked to them & played a bit of soccer or something with them; and I started talking with Ms. Lawrence at some point, she was mostly watching the others play sports but would join in a bit sometimes, but I woke up as we were talking.

Trouble In Little D-Town

Last night I only remembered parts of my last dream, which took place in the city of D.

I think it started with me driving to a big parade that was taking place in town, I remember driving to the CS Bank parking lot, so I could watch the parade from there.

Most of D seemed to be there for the parade and I think the fair was going to start after the parade, I had not seen that many people at a parade in town since I was a kid.

It was a slightly gray day outside but the sunlight was reflecting off of the clouds, and I saw & heard a few airplanes flying around like for an air show or something.

Things seemed normal until I noticed a pregnant woman with black hair and medium brown colored skin, and she seemed to be in pain.

There was a group of suspicious looking men that looked like some stereotypical members of a Latin gang, and they were in a car watching the pregnant woman; like they were looking for an opportunity to kidnap her or something.

So I walked over to see if the woman was alright and three other people walked over there with me.

All three of them worked with a news company, one of them was a man who looked like Richard Gere, and the other two were women; but I can not remember what they looked like.

As we were talking with the pregnant woman, I saw an older style airplane flying high over the area were K-Mart used to be, and I saw & heard it drop something that looked like a bomb.

Then I heard a loud explosion and I saw 2 or 3 tall apartment buildings blow up, and people started screaming & running.

I was shocked that a plane had just dropped a bomb in D of all places and during a parade, and during all the noise; the group of suspicious men in the car got out like they were going to run to kidnap the pregnant woman but then a woman who looked like Mandy Moore jumped off of the roof of the CS Bank like she had come to protect the pregnant woman, and she may have hidden up there the whole time watching the men.

The group of men pulled out guns, but the woman who looked like Mandy Moore stood there with no fear & had no weapons.

Suddenly a car with another group of men drove up, and they started shooting at the group of men that looked like members of a Latin gang.

The three news workers got the pregnant woman into a van to take her to the hospital and they told me to get in, so I did and we drove off.

The woman who looked like Mandy Moore then ran toward the two groups of men to join the fight, but she still did not have any weapons, but she did not seem to care.

Inside the van the pregnant woman was sweating and she looked like she was still in pain, the news workers did not know where the hospital was, so I told them were it was.

My apartment was not far from the hospital so they dropped me off at my apartment, and they continued to the hospital.

My apartment was a tall building like the ones that had gotten blown up by the plane, and all the apartment entrances were inside the building, so I walked inside to get to my apartment.

I felt that the woman who looked like Mandy Moore was going to come looking for me and the pregnant woman, and so I took a moment to think about the situation.

I had the feeling that the woman who looked like Mandy Moore was probably a vampire, the group of men that looked like Latin gang members were probably a rival vampire clan or something, the other group of men that attacked them were probably human vampire hunters, and the pregnant woman had a baby that probably was half human & half vampire; but she probably did not know it yet.

As I was thinking about all of this in my apartment I started seeing things from the point of view of a camera person, and I could see a red truck parked outside of my apartment building.

The woman who looked like Mandy Moore got out of the truck and ran into my apartment building, she jumped around on the ceiling and ran on the walls until she reached my apartment room,  and she knocked my door open.

I knew I did not stand a chance in a fight against her, so I did not even try to fight her, she began to yell at me asking me questions.

She asked me:

If I was Human?

Was I a hunter?

Did I know what she was?

Did I know anything about the pregnant woman?

And a few other questions.

I answered her questions and she stopped to think about what to do with me, it seemed that she was trying to decide to whether to let me go, kill me, or maybe even turn me into a vampire or whatever she was.

She then used my telephone to call someone to tell him the situation, he told her that she had to decide what to do with me, and she said okay & hung up the phone.

She asked me where was the pregnant woman so I told her that the three news workers had taken her to the hospital, she got even angrier and she told me to come with her to the hospital, and that I better hope that the doctors had not found anything suspicious about the baby or she would kill me.

I then followed her out of the apartment, but then the dream jumped back to the CS Bank, it was like I had gone back in time or something.

I think it jumped back to the part after the plane had bombed the apartment buildings, and people were running & screaming.

The pregnant woman was there, but the three news workers were not there this time.

I ran to the pregnant woman to see if she needed help and then the car with the group of men that looked like members of a Latin gang drove up, and a woman jumped off of the roof of the CS Bank; except it was not a woman who looked like Mandy Moore, this time.

This time the woman had black hair and medium brown colored skin, and looked kind of like the pregnant woman.

The woman told me and the pregnant woman to get into a red truck, which looked the same as the one that the woman who looked like Mandy Moore, had used to get to my apartment building; and the woman told me to drive.

I started driving and the group of men in the car chased us, but since this was D & I knew the area, and I easily was able to escape from them.

We then drove to my apartment to hide for a little while, and once at the apartment the woman started asking me questions; just like the woman who looked like Mandy Moore had done.

The pregnant woman was sweating and in pain again, so the woman used my telephone to call the man who the women that looked like Mandy Moore had called, to tell him the situation.

The woman told him that we were going to have to take the pregnant woman to the hospital but the man did not like the idea, and he told the woman that it was her decision & so the woman hung up the phone.

The woman then said that if the baby was born at the hospital, that we would have to sneak both of them out before the doctors or nurses could do any tests that could show that the baby was not completely human.

And if any of the doctors or nurses did notice anything odd about the baby, she said that she would kill them.

I told her that I hoped that would not happen, and then the dream switched to the view of a camera person again.

I could see the three news workers at their news company, their boss was talking with them.

He told them that the other news companies were beating them in ratings and that he wanted them to work harder, or he would fire them.

The three workers said that they were working as hard as they could, but the boss would not listen.

The three workers got angry and I think all three of them quit, and then I woke up.

The end,

Give Tribute To Tribute

Last night sadly I forgot parts of my last dream, due to my cell phone waking me up.

It was an interesting movie-like dream with more detail than my usual dreams the past few weeks, but I forgot many of the details unfortunately.
