Hi, I thought maybe I could add a little more to my experiences I've had with my brother-in-law who passed away about 6 years ago and hangs around, keeping us company. Maybe it seems I've got an awful lot to say about it but it's an ongoing thing so maybe I'll have stories to tell for years to come!
Ever since we moved into this house (Rocky never got to visit here, he was killed just before we moved in) little things have been happening. Some things are just general things, like the fact that since we've lived here we have found coins (some other items too, which I'll tell too) everywhere. Mostly pennies. At first I never thought a thing about it, maybe a bit annoyed at my husband because I was always picking them up everywhere. Finally I sort of clued in that it wasn't hubby's money, I was finding it everywhere! First it was a penny in a pocket or the washing machine, nothing odd about that. Soon it was like they were multiplying. We would keep a penny on the top of the bathroom door frame (it's the type of lock that you can only lock and unlock from inside, unless you use something slotted to turn the lock mechanism from the out-side of the door).
At first my boys were too small to reach the coins up top (my 'keys' so to speak), so I always had a coin there so I could open the door to give them a holler when they'd been in the shower for way too long or the "Mom, I'm out of soap" type of emergencies. Pretty soon there were two coins, then three and the next thing I knew there was a whole row of coins all the way across the top of the frame. That's when I really clued in. You can find pennies everywhere in my house, on the table, under the table, ditto counters, windowsills, in my flower pots, in shoes when you go to put them on. Weird places.
Along those lines, my youngest son has found 2 watches on the ground, I found a heavy Italian gold, 24 karat bracelet in a pocket of a jacket that I bought at a second hand store. I gave that to my husband and he loved it, then one day he just couldn't find it anywhere. We looked and looked and never did find it. My oldest son found a gorgeous 14 karat diamond and emerald ring as he was walking home from school. I have found many less valuable baubles around the house such as pretty marbles, little pieces of gold chain, once a little stone that looked like a kid's play jewelry diamond (I only have 2 boys) and other sorts of shiny odd little things. I realize that all of those 'finds' can be explained away but to me it just seems too coincidental.
We still find pennies and weird little baubles all over the place but no more valuable items. Maybe we just had a lucky streak but either Rocky's dropping us pennies or we have a breeding pair around here somewhere! I like to think the 'gifts' were from Rocky, he always was a generous guy.
Thanks for reading and letting me share with you. I'll tell some more of my 'Rocky' story another time!
