My last story brought events that have happened at our current location when we first moved in. I would like to pick up from there. We were still not used to all the small and large incidents that continued.
On one occasion Jennifer and I, along with a couple of neighbours were enjoying a fall night sitting around the fire pit. We had finished up a good dinner and were sipping on some toddies making small talk as we looked at the night sky. Jennifer excused herself and went in the house for a moment leaving me with our neighbours. Talk drifted to silence as we stared at the stars. The three of us were sitting/facing the same direction as we listened to the fire pop and sputter. Suddenly from behind us, (which will be from the front of the house) we could here footsteps leaving the gravel driveway and walk our direction. The steps crossed the yard crunching leaves with every step. At the time we had not spoken for several minutes and all had their head leaned back looking upwards. The sound of someone walking up to us came closer and closer. Whoever it was turned to my direction and walked straight up behind me and stopped. I was thinking it was Jennifer but thought it was odd she would be coming back to the fire from that direction. I glanced over to the closest neighbour setting to my right at the same time as he looked to see had joined our gathering. His eyes got wide as I turned to see who it was. There was absolutely no one there. I JUMPED straight out of my chair as the other two did the same. We were all doing the "holy $h!t" thing backing up as each of us shared our own version expletives. Jennifer came out after hearing the commotion to find us looking like we were dancing around the fire. I have to admit it probably looked pretty funny.
We went to debunk the experience. There was absolutely no wind. There was nowhere for someone to hide. We just grinned and sat back down reliving the experience we all shared.
I believe this one is long enough. There are plenty more to share. I actually had some odd moments this past weekend. Thanks for taking the time to read. Will enjoy any and all comments.
