Coffee-holic Grandmother's Ghost


My grandmother had to wear special shoes because of surgery on her leg that made one leg a couple of inches shorter than the other. This resulted in a shuffle-thump noise that was very distinctive when she walked anywhere in our house (my mother and I lived with her) as we had hardwood floors throughout.

One night I was in from college, at least a year after she passed away, and was sleeping on the couch in the living room. It adjoins the kitchen in our very small house, and I heard a shuffle-thump make it's way down the hall into the kitchen where it stopped, and the coffee maker turned on. My grandma was a coffee-holic. I can only assume there's no caffeine on the other side.

Nice story. =) I'm sure your grandmother is happy where she is now despite the lack of caffeine.
Hope to hear more from you.

My sister-in-law had something like that to happen to her. Her grand father died and he use to smoke ciggars. Now ever time you sit in his rocking chair you can smell ciggar smoke!! And no one smokes in the house any more.

My mom has passed away about a couple of months ago. She used to always come and close my bedroom light because I would fall asleep with the lights on. Well when I've been going to bed recently with the lights on (as usual), in the morning when I wake up, they were off! I know she is still around I always feel like there someone around me taking care of me!

I kinda think it was her. Especially since the coffee was set to go off at seven in the morning, and it was maybe eleven or twelve at night when it happened. Seven at night, yeah sure, just a mix-up. But midnight? C'mon.
