Anyone have ghosts?

We have a weird ghost that keeps ringing out doorbell.   My kid claims he saw a man walking away.  I haven't seen anything.  And it doesn't feel creepy when it happens.   Probably a short in the doorbell.

BUT, the previous owner sold to us because her husband died in the house.  I know he loved it.  Maybe he just wants back in.

Sure, my story is pretty lame, but I was hoping to hear some better ones from the group!  Smiling

We lived with three ghosts in Arkansas one was a young kid that rings the doorbell at all hours, and it was not possible for anyone kids to come play the ring the doorbell game...they even had a paranormal group come investigate his name was Willie, they discovered three...one was a lady that left a sweet scent when she walked into or by a room the third was a confederate soldier in the basement. We are suppose to have a British officer roaming the house here at this inn. He only bothers the women and I have felt him kind of on the bed, not touching me or anything and sometimes the bed seems like its shivering, yea I know it sounds weird, but he does it. I have to sometimes tell him ENOUGH! and he stops. Its been interesting.

We have two spirits in our Inn, both happy and content (luckily).  There's a female upstairs in the Garden Room and a male that walks around downstairs (mostly kitchen & dining room).  We've named them Helen & Silvester.  We learned about them 3 months into our ownership when hobby ghost hunters showed up with suitcases of equipment.  They set stuff up all over the house (with our permission), then slept all day & stayed up all night.  Cecilia hear audio of the male in the kitchen and often feels him standing next to her while she cooks.  She also hears Helen upstairs (the Garden Room is over the office) and it sounds like she's moving furniture.  I'm just glad their not the type to toss things at the back of my head!

We actually heard Silvester as we were preparing breakfast last week - the first time I've ever heard either of them.  There was heavy pacing footsteps in the main hallway outside the kitchen.  Usually this is followed by someone either walking into the kitchen looking for coffee or walking past the kitchen to the door to take their luggage outside.  We didn't see either, so I went into the hallway and circled around through the dining room back into the kitchen.  No one.  More footsteps.  Cecilia checked the same route. Nothing.  More footsteps.  We agreed aloud that it was Silvester and then the footsteps stopped.  It was very loud and the hallway isn't long enough for that many footsteps in a row without being seen in one of the doorways.  

Guest stories:  Heavy, boot footsteps up & down the stairs in the night, door handle jiggling, furniture moving (from our only carpeted room), piano playing (our piano is terribly out of tune with broken strings, but apparently the ghost overcame and played beautifully).

We've had many local spiritual people in the house and they all say they can feel them and that they are happy we are running the place.  I'm glad they approve!

You know this is what I say to them, "I thought ghosts were supposed to float?"

I would be much more concerned with an individual NOT being a ghost walking around. Smiling

The band director I gave all the dolls to finally brought my laundry baskets back. He said they collected over 900 toys at their concert (including the dolls minus 1). He smirked and said he kept ChuckieElla and has her stashed for future reference - scaring the crap out of kids. SDhe may not be a ghost, but she has made things interesting at thast Middle School.

They need to make a series about that doll, that would be fun!

I actually know a couple mediums.  I will see if they do house readings.   Mostly they do personal readings.

Paranormalists are everywhere at the moment. Call any show they would be happy to come out, and you can get some free publicity from it.

But we aware that you may INCREASE bookings, or DECREASE depending on who it is. For example the innmate here who wondered if he should advertise that the room was an old brothel, or NOT advertise it was an old brothel. Hm...could work either way for the better, or the worse!

Never trust a mortician who doesn't tie the deceased's shoelaces together. Because if there ever is a zombie apocalypse... at least you have a good running start!

(Joey, I hope you were drinking coffee at the time you read this, because I'm imagining your screen full of coffee you spit out after reading that!)

Grumpy ghost here. He bothers guests by making the room cold and by lighting it up in the middle of the night.

We've had a spirit medium read the house. She says it's the original owner. If you can find someone in your area who does this it is a lot of fun. I'm planning to revamp his room this year so that might chase him out. Or make him worse, who knows.

I don't sense him at all but we've had a few guests and just visitors say the room is cold and 'scary'. Some people won't even go in the room. There are guests who won't stay if it's the only room open.
