Experience description:  

I was asleep.  The dream came.  IN the dream I saw my father-in-law.  He did not talk but he showed me that I urgently needed to go in an old shed that was on his land in Fayette County.  He showed me that I needed to either have someone look under a piece of plywood or cardboard it the loft of the shed.  I had no idea what shed he was talking about, I had never seen it before.  Somehow I was given the impression that his son would know. 

I awoke suddenly and expressed the dream to my husband (his son).  He knew about the shed but it was in total dilapidation and very unsafe to enter.  I continued to push the subject until he said he would look.  I accompanied him to the farm.  He went way back into the woods to the old shed. 

He came back a good while later with a civil war saddle and mule harness.  He had no idea where it had come from and knew that it had not been there before.  It was located in the loft of the shed under a rotting piece of plywood. 

I still have it to this day.  My children will inherit it one day.
