Wondering About a Dream about a Playmate.

I had a dream last night.  I dreamed that I was camping in my motorhome and took a walk up a wooded mountain and came across a fellow camping in a tent.  I realized that he was an old playmate I had when I was a young kid.  How did I recognize him? . . . Heck, I don't know, everything is possible in a dream.  I hadn't heard that name since I was in grade school, and for some reason, I can't remember him in school.  I only remember him coming to my place and the two of us playing.  I don't even remember what we played.  In fact, now I don't even remember what he looked like.  All I have after awakening is a name.

Of course I Googled that name and found a bunch of matches, but none of them seemed to be the right person.  I even checked the obituaries, but no luck there, either.  I know I am not dreaming (well, yes I was dreaming) but I swear I used to know someone with that name.  What name, you may ask.  Well, the way I remember (or dreamed) it was Eugene Johns.  If any of you reading this blog post is Eugene or if any of you know Eugene, please let me know.  The Eugene I am talking about lived in western Pennsylvania in the early 1950's just south of Butler.  Now, you all have a great day, you hear?


  1. I used to keep a pencil & paper next to my bed, and whenever I would get up in the middle of the night, as well as in the morning, I would jot down notes of what I dreamed. You have to catch it before fulling waking up, and it takes practice. An hour or two later I could look at those notes and completely recall vivid dreams. I hope you find Eugene.

    1. I probably will not be able to unless he sees this blog and gets in touch with me. Like I said, there are a lot of people about the right age with the same name. Since I lost contact with him very early in my life, I have very limited info to go on.
