In 1977 my parents, siblings and I moved from Douglasville Ga. To Newnan Ga. We moved into a split level home - three bedrooms and two baths upstairs, living room w/fireplace; dining area and kitchen on the main level and a partial basement. At first nothing strange happen - then we started to notice a few things.
My dad worked at night - so me, mom and my three sisters were home at night by ourselves - dad had always worked nights so we were used to the "all girl nights". One night we are all in the living room watching TV and we heard the pots and pans shift in the cabinet. We thought nothing of it - could be a mouse - hmmmmmmm. We had a little peekaboo puppy named Bingo -that we would sometimes let into the house - Bingo usually stayed in the basement. At one time or another each of us at separate times would see a little black spot dart around the wall corners inside the house. "Ok, who let Bingo in?" would be the question and the answer would always be - "Bingo is in the basement" - OK, - things that make you go "hmmmmm".
One afternoon I came home from school and no one was home - so I decided that I would go to the bedroom my sister and I shared and do a little homework. My mom had hung an owl shaped wind chime between the entrances from the living room to the dining area. For fun we would all hit it as we were going into that part of the room (really just to aggravate mom to let her know that was a weird place to hang a wind chime). I was lying across the bed doing my homework when I heard the chime - thinking someone was home - I hollered out "I'm up here!" - no answer - ok, I went into the hallway and the chime was moving - but there was no one in the house - so I went back to my room and I heard the chime again - "OK!, whoever that is I'm going to kick your butt!" I screamed. I'm thinking my sister was playing a trick on me and just ignored it. About 30 minutes later - Mom comes home with all my sisters and dad was already at work - so there was no one in the house.
A few years later I come home after a date. We always used the basement door to enter and exit the house - very rarely did we use the front door. So anyway I came in and my mom called me up to her bedroom so that we could talk about my date. My baby sisters were in the bed and my other sister was working with my dad. As we were talking we heard the front door open and close and footsteps going across the living room to the kitchen. "Marvin we are up here" my mom hollered out. No answer... Now let me back track - before I went upstairs to talk to my mom she asked me to check the front door to make sure that it was locked and the chain was on the door. Now back to the story... My mom asked that I go and see if Bonnie and Dad had come in - so I did. I went back upstairs to tell mom that no one was here - and that the chain on the door was still attached. Dad and Bonnie drove up about ten minutes later and used the basement door to come in. As I said before... Things that make you go "hmmmm".
I'm going to end this now - there will be a part two because there were many things that happen in this house and we find out something that could explain all that we experience... Stay tune for part two.
