My experience with Tracy 1974
by Fay Karamanakis
(Darwin NT Australia)
My name is Fay Karamanakis and here is some of my experiances of Tracy
Tracy was unbelievable, I am still almost aghast with the memories. My story's is a little bit dramatic too because our dog saved our lives only to get shot the next day by the cops because they were worried about diseases.
It was traumatic days I stilll remember and around 11 o'clock it started to get really windy and scary.
I normally did not like to have any animals in the house because of the children.
I felt sorry for our Dog blacky who was scratching the class door to come in.
He was as frightened as I was so I put a nice warm mat in the kitchen and let him in.
As soon as I let the animal in and it ran to the baby's cot and pulled the sheets and he made the baby knock her head on the cot leaving it screaming then went into the next room and pulled the three year old off the bed on to the ground. I was really wild with the animal, so I took the dog and chucked him out and I had to settle the kids, my three year old daughter weighed a ton so I had to pick the baby as well as the three year old child and try and stoped them from crying in the mean time the dog was still going crazy. When my husband came home after a bout an hour the weather was very bad there were wild winds belting the windows and the whole house was shaking.
He saw the dog and felt sorry for him so he brought the dog in from the winds as soon as I seen him I was wild and told John my husband not to let him in. Then the pet looked at me with a strange look in his eyes as if he was trying to tell me something, he then took me by the skirt and was trying to lead me to the door while I was holding the two babies. By that time the galvanised iron roofing was starting to lift and this animal was really telling us to go.
John said the animal is trying to tell us to go so I grabbed my babiesâ€™ bag while I was carring the baby and John carried Katie my oldest child and ran down stairs in our granny flat thinking that it would be best and it was.
So, that's when we decided to go. Exactly two minutes later the whole house just collapsed, the whole house was completely gone.
Our story like so many others is one of strange happenings. We must have had a saint look over us that day.
There is so much more to this story and it will make a good book about My exeriance with Tracy.
