Hi Katharina, Greg, All,

Like Katharina, I haven't ever experienced any overt harassment,
however I did have one very curious incident happen that made me
think I might be being observed or monitored and that maybe the
people doing it wanted me to know they were watching me.

This happened just after the NOVA program aired back in 1995. I
went out to buy a pack of smokes one afternoon and I noticed a
car containing two men sitting just a few doors away from the
front of my house. The man behind the wheel was in his early to
mid 60's if I had to venture a guess as to age and the other
fellow appeared to be in his mid-thirties. Nothing unusual about
two guys sitting in a parked car chatting. What set this
incident apart from the norm was; as I approached the vehicle
I overheard the older man exclaim to the younger one, "Oh sh*t!
That's our man!"

They were both looking directly at me!

The young guy's jaw went slack as if he had been caught with his
hand in the cookie jar, and the older man had an expression of
anger on his face. He immediately cranked up the engine and they
_peeled_ out of there, tires squealing.

I just stood there with my jaw on the ground. I didn't know what
to make of the older man's cryptic remark or the entire incident
for that matter. Who on earth would want to keep tabs on me I
wondered. Why were these guys hanging around in front of my
house where I could see them if they were trying to conduct some
kind of clandestine investigation of me or my  movements? What
the devil did that old guy mean by the remark, "that's our man"?
The only thing that made any sense to me at all was that maybe
they wanted me to know that somebody was watching me. To what
end, I have no idea. I do know what the old guy said and that
they were both looking right at me when he said it.

Go figure that one out!

Not being paranoid by nature, I simply chose to forget the whole
thing. The only people I ever mentioned it to was, my wife, Budd
Hopkins and Errol Bruce-Knapp. There really isn't much that
anyone can make out of a weird incident like that. I will
venture this much though, I wouldn't be at all surprised if some
government agency wasn't monitoring a few individuals who may
be reporting UFO contact/abduction in public. Like I said, this
incident happened shortly after the NOVA segment on abduction

Thought I'd share that one.
