Tara and Willow have nothing to do with my post for today, but I just love these gals and I always have a need post Buffy Pictures! My post is about my paranormal experiences. I have had 3 that I know of, I believe in Ghosts or spirits.
First is my grandparents house. I have tried to trace down the history of this house but I haven't tried too hard since my cousin owns it now and he would think it strange of me to try to find out more about it. According to mom, this house was old and abandoned and run down when she was a kid. It was in a very rural area of NC, it still is pretty rural but not like it used to be. According to mom, some big tobacco executive bought it and spared no expense renovating it, he even had electricity put in and it was one of the only houses in the area to have electric for a long long time. And indoor plumbing! But mom says the tobacco executive did not live there long and sold the house and the land (lots of acreage) to my grandfather. Now, I wish I knew what grandpa paid for that house. He was not a wealthy man but was pretty good at saving money, but i often wondered how he had enough to buy that house in the early 1940s. I am thinking the tobacco guy just wanted rid of it and my grandfather got a deal. Anyway, I wish I knew when the house was built and how old it is. The house was haunted, always has been according to my mother. There was never any visual evidence of this, no chains rattling or footsteps. It was a feeling. Its hard to explain the feeling. A feeling of absolute dread and fear and you could almost see the waves of hatred . It was mostly in one room, the back bedroom. When I was a child I remember running out of the house when the adults were outside like the hounds of hell were chasing me. The feeling did not go away until I was outside the house, My mom and my aunt also have felt it, my aunt says its still there. But my cousin and his family have lived there for probably close to 20 years now so it must not bother them. I think my brother often wishes he had gotten the house just because he was so close to my grandfather but not me. No one could pay me enough to live in it! I wish I had a picture of the house, its an awesome old house on a hill.
I will post about my other experiences later. Happy Halloween and be safe tonight everyone!! My hubby is working nights and I will probably only stay outside an hour to give out candy. We always go outside and sit rather than have the dogs have a cow every time the doorbell goes off. I thought about skipping it these year, I still might.
