Our family has had many experiences and we even have a "family" ghost story and someday I will write about it but tonight I am going to write about happenings in my home: Shortly after Hurricane Charley hit our home, we began renovations to the house. My partner "S" stated that on a few occasions he saw a little man, not much taller than the back of our dining room chairs, wearing a derby hat, walk through the sliding glass door (it was closed) past the table and go into the wall between the fridge and the new kitchen cabinets.
Since I had the house built in 1993 and was the only person who lived in this house, I decided that it was an imprint left over from sometime in the past, until one day when "S" was bringing the mail into the bedroom, he caught this little man standing by the head of our bed, the little man saw him, acted startled and ran behind the bed into the wall. This room was also being worked on and the bed was pulled away from the wall so that is why the little man could run around the bed and go into the wall. Haven't seen him since then.
"S" hadn't told me this story until one day when I approached him and told him that I thought we had a ghost in the house because I keep seeing a shadow of a tall thin man wearing a fedora hat, peering around the corner at me. He has seen him too and he said he was trying to think of a way to tell me and was glad I brought it up.
This dark figure has been spotted by many people, we call him the "Traveler", My sister sees one in her home, a friend of my adult daughter has seen one, a patient in the hospital where I work saw one yesterday, and I have noticed many others have described him on various "ghost" sites. Would like to hear like stories about him.
My dog tends to look like he is looking a someone and several time he pushes his toy toward where he is looking as if he wants someone to play with him. He also looks towards the kitchen a lot and barks.
Other smaller instances are: 1. Dog gate not only fell over in the night it flipped and face a different direction then it would have it it just fell on it's side. 2. I woke in the middle of the night and saw what looked like glowing wings on the wall. 3. I placed the tv remote control on top of my bed pillow, left the room to talk to "S" and when I came back into the room it was missing, I found it inside the pillow case. 4. I came home from work one night and when I went into the kitchen I noticed that tip was missing from the faucet and I asked "S" how the faucet got broken and he said it wasn't, I went back to check it out, I touched the sharp edge, even convinced myself that there wasn't a tip for this faucet and went to bed. The next morning the tip was back on the faucet. 5. I was resting in my hot tub one night and I tend to fall asleep in it. In my sleep (dream) a voice said "are you the person in the hot tub?" and I answered "yes" it then said "prepare yourself for cold water" I woke up with a start and laughed and thought what a strange dream, all of the sudden the recycle jets on the spa turned on and out rushed cold water and blasted my sides. I was glad I was awake when the cold water hit! 6. Last night at two different times there was a bell of some sort ringing loudly, The first one woke me up, "S" was coming back to bed (bathroom) and the second time he was in bed and it woke us up, the dog started to bark. That morning we tried to duplicate the sound, trying our smoke detector, microwave, alarm clock, timers and the phone but nothing made a similar sound.
So what do you think going on in my house? I just want you to know that I am in my 50's "S" is in his 60's we don't do drugs, rarely drink and have no reason to brag about ghosts in our home. I've been on many ghost hunts with a professional team and I was the one who tried to disprove events and had to be convinced that what was really happening was true.
