Whether probability or luck, the psychological or psychic, scepticism or faith, physics or metaphysics, what is your greatest apparently synchronistic experience?
Sure. Isn't that deja vu? It doesn't happen for more than a few seconds, though.AlbertEinstein said:I don't know if anyone has experienced this or not. Sometimes I feel that the sequence of actions that I am doing just now have already occurred in the past just in that same sequence. I get out into thinking when that had occurred but I don't remember. I have experienced this a few times and I am pretty sure others might have also experienced it.
She had sable coloration and a pink nose that always sniffing things. Maybe that's how her owners came up with the name (nosy=Rosie?), lessening the "amazing" coincidence to just "wow". I didn't think to ask them when they came to pick her up because my wife was crying her eyes out and I didn't want to drag things out any longer with socializing.Moonbear said:I think Turbo's Rosie story is the best! That ferret must have REALLY looked like a Rosie.
It had been a couple of weeks and she and my wife had bonded almost immediately. Rosie was pretty tough and scrappy and could hold her own with our tribe of ferrets, but she shadowed my wife and always wanted to be cuddled. Rosie's owners wanted to give us a reward for returning her - my wife wanted to give THEM money if they let us keep her. She told me to START at $1000. I just couldn't do that. Rosie used to sleep every night with the little boy and he had been heartbroken without her. They were very nice people, unlike the jerk that I rescued Stormy from. I called her that because I drove 50 miles in a blizzard responding to an ad saying that there was a ferret to be given away. When I got there, the jerk demanded that I also buy her cage for $50 or he wouldn't give her to me. Anybody that would leave a ferret in a cage all day is a a big enough jerk that I didn't want to leave her with him, so I paid him and took her (and the cage) home. We kept the cage, and since it was big with multiple levels we rigged it with toys, hammocks made from pant-legs and other stuff. At first, Stormy didn't want to go into the cage at all, but when she saw our other ferrets playing in it, she started thinking of it as a playground instead of a jail.Moonbear said:Aww...that's the hardest part of taking in strays...sometimes their owners do appear and it's always JUST as you start getting attached to the newcomer in the home.
Yes it is. He was our last ferret, Turbo. He was the most amazing little guy - we got him from a breeder that got his mother from New Zealand and his father from Sweden (just keeping the gene pool more complex). We had ferret-proofed the house for the many, many ferrets we had over the years (we started with ferrets way before they became fashionable about 15 years ago), but this little guy was a fuzzy Houdini. He could get into anything - he was patient, persistent, and inventive.neutrino said:Is that a ferret in your avatar, turbo?
