I’ve grown up around several people who were um . . . not, well, the most brilliant Christmas lights on the strand and as a general rule they all believed wholeheartedly in ghosts as Bigfoot and professional wrestling.:rolleyes: I have run across some very intelligent people in the last few years, however, that also believe and I was wondering who on this board not only believes but has had some experience with ghosts.
The reason I’m interested is because I feel like my house is haunted. No big scary stuff going on but a lot of small stuff like my kid’s remote control cars going by themselves while the remote is in clear view with no one near it. Fortunately these cars have an on/off switch and nothing happens while they are turned off. Otherwise they would be rotting in a landfield somewhere by now. My under-the-cabinet lights in my kitchen would act weird too. There were 5 units and each had their own switch wired into one switch. Well only some would work and some wouldn’t. And while the switch was on they would go on and off of their own accord. So we replaced them and then rewired them so I would have to turn them all on individually. Same stuff. A couple of units wouldn’t work at all for weeks and then start working only to have one or more stop working. And still they would go on and off. My husband installed them and wired them and he knew what he was doing. It was weird. We finally replaced them again and no problems. Yet.
The big thing is that I hear someone walking around at night. I work at my computer until the morning hours quite often and I can’t count how many times I have heard someone walking around the house then enter my office and stand right behind me. Only to turn around and no one is there. :eek: I have gone in search of my husband because I was absolutely certain I heard him in the kitchen only to find him asleep in bed. He is a practical joker and I would put it down to that except he sleeps with a C-PAP machine which looks like an oxygen mask and it takes awhile to get it on his head. The amazing part about this whole thing is that I never seemed to freak out about it. Maybe I would if I lived alone?
Well I found out some history about the house from a neighbor. There was a man and woman that either had the house built or bought it and added a huge part of it on. Well they grew old in this house and she came down with Alzheimer’s. Her husband was taking care of her but he died suddenly (inside the house) of a heart attack. The woman continued to live here alone until she got so bad that her family put her in a home where she eventually died. Sad stuff. Anyway, the house stayed vacant while she was away and upon her death the house went to the Shriners who held onto it for some time util they auctioned it off and we got it. Even though he died in the house and she didn’t I feel it is her walking around. I can’t begin to explain why I feel this way.
So have you guys had similar or even scarier experiences or do you think I am just nuts?
