I live on a goat farm and have pulled many, many, many baby goats. Goats are wonderful little "people" and should get the respect that all animals deserve.
I'm a firm believer in the paranormal but like everything else, must be viewed with logic and common sense. I do have a healthy amount of skepticism and have no tolerance for bs. The welcoming nature and helpful souls on here are commendable.
I've had several paranormal events and do believe I have my own "visitor".
I am agnostic in my beliefs and believe in the "live and let live" mantra as long as no one gets hurt.
Mostly self educated. I had more lousy teachers than good ones and lost total interest in the school system shortly after starting high school. READING IS GOOD!

The Traveling Eye Glasses And My Very Weird Day on 2016-11-23

My husband, Mike, wears glasses all the time, except when we go into a casino. Our grandson found a website where you can get two pair of glasses with frames for about $6.00. Large selection of brand name frames and any script on the lenses. He got them within 6 weeks and loves them. We were driv...

Bones Found And A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words on 2015-10-13

First off, let me say that without Valkricy's help on this, I wouldn't be submitting my story. More on her further down. Last Monday on Oct. 7 I was checking the KCRA 3 news app on my phone. It's how I stay up to date on the local news around here. The headline was "Police Recover Human Remains I...

Footsteps Were The Creepiest Part on 2014-09-08

I'll try not to jumble this up too much but this happened over about a two week period and I'm kicking myself for not writing it down. I've had minor things happening in my home for the past couple of years, since my grandson came out from Florida. Seeing shadows out of the corner of my eye many...

Mom Could Always Make Me Smile on 2013-09-23

I lost my mom very suddenly to a massive heart attack in August of 2009. She was a wonderful, kind and loving woman and raised us six kids on her own and had a major role in helping to raise a couple of grandchildren including my own daughter. I missed her terribly and found myself forever wondering...

Fergie- Tell Nicky she shouldn't brush the little incidents aside. Could be big meaning in the little stuff! 😊

I wonder if Shen wasn't hearing "The Lady" with the soft walking, the lighter and the keys.

You and Nicky have done such a beautiful job with her on all of this. I haven't heard of many people being able to take a tragedy of this magnitude and turning it into something so special. And it's so kind of you to share it all with us.

South Africa is SO lucky to have you! ❤

Fergie, my dear friend-

Finally, Nicky gets her confirmation from Angel! I can only imagine her excitement. I do hope your back is better, but it sounds as if you got some good "quality" time in with the girls.

If you think about the curtain incident, think about it like this. Lace curtains can be "light as a feather". 😊

I really enjoyed this and I'm so sorry I missed it. I was in the middle of a 6 month long battle with my stomach at the time and didn't get a lot of YGS time in. I don't know what was going on and neither did the Dr's. They did all the tests, gave me a bucketful of meds, had me on a strict juice diet for 2 weeks and ended up scratching their heads. But the day after the last test, it all stopped and I've haven't had a problem since.

Can't wait to hear from you again. In the meantime here's a couple of gothic bats for you. ❤ ❤

Fergie my friend! You never disappoint with your accounts and this hair raising one is no exception.

Any chance of getting any history info on the house? What with all that sounds residual, I'm wondering if any of it could be connected with the duvet incident.

Manafon's telepathic sounds theory sounds intriguing. When I heard the heavy footsteps in my room, both my cat and dog were in the room. The cat, on my bed next to me and Rosie on the floor next to the bed. Neither one of them budged and those footsteps were heavy and loud. And nothing would get by Rosie without her yapping like a maniac and Tucker bolting like a bullet out of there!

Are the nieces aware of your belief in these things? Maybe if you dropped a subtle hint about it one of them would speak up. Me, I have no problem blurting out stuff about my "visitors" to anyone who will listen. 99% of the time nobody listens and if they do I always see the not so subtle "eye roll".

It's always SO good to hear from you Fergie. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to your return. 😘 ❤
I'm with lady-glow and Rex bbqcthulhu. What else happened!? Please do tell what the "friendly entity" was.

Welcome to the club!

Your dad is 100% correct! Getting out and getting a job at your age is doing exactly that. "Teaching you life lessons". I don't know anything about you but I pretty much do know that kids your age haven't had much life, age wise, to have had enough "lessons" to know what life is really about. I could go on and on and on but I'm sure you didn't come here for a lecture on your attitude.

You seem to have had one of life's lessons at the hardware store. What were some of the other stories you heard from your co-workers? Did any of them match up to what you experienced? Maybe you should talk to them again and really listen to their "semi-stupid and unbelievable" stories.

I don't think you've got anything to worry about really. You haven't been hurt, your co-workers are still there sharing their experiences and you got a "life lesson" out of it. Maybe something to tell your kids when you're telling them to go out and get a job so they can learn some "life lessons". 🙄

So Emma, if you've had "dead silence" (pardon your pun 😜) for 4 days now, maybe it's working.

I'm just curious... Why did your sister and brother-in-law decide not to use the place? Did they stay there at all?

Do you know why Patty is so afraid to talk about the paranormal? Is it religion, something that happened in her past, or just generally was "taught" to be afraid of it?

My hubby was terrified by something when he was a child and wouldn't even tolerate the mention of anything paranormal when we first met. He's still "ooky" about it but he now, can't deny it. After witnessing a few things around here for himself, he tells me about it and when I try to question him, his only comment is "I don't know" 🙄 My long drawn out point is, he's accepted it.

Can't wait to hear what happens and I hope your talk helped!
The8Ms- This really was a 'warm and fuzzy". 😊 It doesn't matter what other people think as long as your heart knows it was Homma, then it was her. I'm sure she's still hanging around keeping an eye on everyone.

Thanks for sharing and welcome to the club! ❤

Val- That is an awesome poem! It gave me goosebumps and I felt like I was watching the whole scene play out! Thank you so much for sharing it! ❤ 😊

Jubeele- This is a great read. It took me back to my first time on a horse. My brother had a friend that invited him to go riding and he took me along. I'd never been on a horse and the closest I'd come to one was passing by them in their pastures as we my mom drove down the rode.

We get there and his friend asked if I'd ever been riding before and I told her no. So she goes in the barn and leads out the biggest horse she had. My little 10 year old mind is thinking, "what the hell!". I almost didn't get on him but she said. "he's very gentle".

So we start down the trail, fairly flat with lots of oaks and dried up pasture land. Out of the blue, I hear "HANG ON" and my horse bolts! I hunkered down, squeezed my legs tight and grabbed his mane, which of course only made him go faster, but how was I to know that!

I could hear the five riders behind me yelling and their horses running after me but for some reason, I wasn't afraid. Then I heard, "left-left-left". I pulled his mane to the left and he starts heading for an oak tree and just as I thought we about to crash into it, he slows and comes to a dead stop.

The "friend" catches up and starts yelling at me about everything I had done wrong and I looked at her and said, "I told you I'd never been on a horse!" She was so mad and ended the excursion.

Strangely, the next time I got on a horse, about 5 years ago, it was like I'd been riding all my life. Guess I knew what NOT to do! 😜

Mmmmmm, love me some tri tip and I'll bring extra for left over sandwiches.

I'm going to bring along all the goodies I found on Val's cyber haunted house. Maybe something in there that'll help with the map! 😜

Wait for me! Ghost pepper nachos, bloody mary's, haunted houses AND dinosaurs! This is going to be a wild ride. 😁

Another great account Emma. I'm with the others. As soon as got to the part about your son sitting at the top of the stairs, my gut went uh-uh. Nope. Not going to happen. Fortunately you didn't let it happen and got outta Dodge. 😘

Jetson- I too will be waiting to hear more of the fascinating "teaser" you presented to us. PLEASE do submit it for us all to read!

Excellent idea with the fan Emmaline!

My hubby doesn't go EEK. (had to lol at that one) Mine is well aware that "stuff" happens here, it's happened to him but his standard comment is, "I don't want to talk about it". I don't push him on it as he had too much trauma/drama in his early life and from what I can gather, some of it involved the "spectral" kind.

I can't imagine why anyone would "eyeroll" your narratives. They're just too detailed and well written to NOT believe! That's just crazy talk! 😆

Please do let us know about the return trip. Yer pretty awesome yerself! ❤

It seems to me that it's "history" that is "haunting" you. I don't mean that in a bad way but you seem to pick up on decades old happenstances more than your average bear, so to speak. 😜

I like Jubeele's idea of bringing a token for Julia. How does your "new" hubby feel about all of this ghost stuff? Hope he's on board with it because it looks like he may be in for a wild ride with you! 😜 ❤

Thank you for sharing this Cups. It was such a beautiful tribute to Seth and his character. He'll never be forgotten so will never be really gone. ❤
I know that feeling of dread well DestinyGirl. My daughter lived in a small 6 unit apartment complex on Anna Maria Island in Florida. My grandson had told me it was haunted and he hated the place because of it.

One day while I was visiting, we were leaving to go to the beach and I was holding my granddaughter getting ready to descend the stairs. I stood at the top of the stairs and suddenly the hair on my neck stood up and I got the most dreadful feeling and took a step back. I hollered at my daughter to come and get the baby. I know in my gut that if I had continued down those steps, I would have been pushed and/or fallen.

It's never good to ignore your gut instincts. Far as I'm concerned, ya done good. But I don't know whether I'd go back to that house. Sounds to me like it's best to leave well enough alone. 😨

Good read and thanks for sharing!

I was so happy to see you return to us! ❤ Hope everything's alright. You were gone for too long.

I've had so many sheep and goats and SO many babies from them. I could write a book with all the thrills and heartbreak I've had with them.

So glad you're back! Don't be gone so long like that again.

She did raise it as her own. Wouldn't let her out of her sight for about 6 months! The lambs usually get kicked off at about 3 or 4 months but she had wanted a baby so bad for so long she let her nurse an extra couple of months. I did put the other twin in with her to see if she'd accept him. She semi-adopted him but she wouldn't let him nurse, try as he might she wasn't having it. But she wouldn't let me take him out of the pen so at least he had a mama that wanted him. 😊 ❤

No disappointment at all notjustme. I think your instincts are correct. ALL animals have souls and feel things much as we do.

I had a ewe named Delilah that wanted to be a mom so bad but had a very hard time staying pregnant. Finally after 4 years she carried her lamb to term only to have a stillborn. It was such a hard and long labor I had to call the vet out. It took her some time to get anywhere and as I sat there watching the vet with Delilah's head on my lap, she looked up at me and there was one tear rolling down her face and then another and I just cried with her.

I had two 1-1/2 week old orphaned lambs that I was bottle feeding in another pen. There mom died a couple of days after they were born. I looked over at the lambs and back at Delilah and had a great idea! I grabbed the afterbirth of the dead lamb and rubbed it all over one of the orphans. She was NOT happy. Lol. Then I pulled a switcheroo and exchanged the dead baby for the live one. Delilah was stand offish for a bit and kept looking at me like she knew something wasn't right but after sniffing up the baby a few times, she started nudging her to eat and that little lamb started nursing like she hadn't eaten for a week!

Sorry this is so gross but when you live on a farm, things like this come naturally. Just wanted to convey that yes, animals are aware of what's going on and they most definitely have feelings just like we do. 😊

You had me until the, "The average HUMAN is about what like 9 foot right?" The average professional basketball player isn't even that tall and those dudes are TALL!

You said the wind was blowing the rain right into your faces and you couldn't even look straight ahead. Given that it was raining so hard, the adrenaline you were all experiencing and the intermittent lightning flashes, I think you saw something that was probably a natural part of the landscape that resembled what you think you saw.

I don't know why anyone would choose to go ghost hunting out in a storm with so much or ANY lightning. Seems a bit reckless if not downright dangerous if you ask me.
What would be even more weird Emmaline, is if all those people you passed on the freeway/roads, and all the people in the office had a deja vu moment when you showed up at NASA that morning. 😕

I don't have anything to offer in the way of answers, but I'm sure your going to get some great feedback from others here. Where's Manafon!?

How cool is it to work at NASA! 😊
