This is the second story I'll be posting. I posted the first one a few days ago but I haven't seen it up. Maybe it was not in correct format. If I don't see it in a couple of days I'll try again. The first one is about one of my earlier experiences with the paranormal. Like I said in the last one, I have had many.
I am a vocational nurse by profession and have worked for many years in various nursing homes as well as home health. Due to the stress and literally being around death dozens of times I am now working in case management. But the clinic that I work in now is also haunted by a couple of people who died here before it was a clinic, but that's a later story. Several times while working in these nursing homes I've had feelings of presences around me, especially right after a resident would pass away. However, there was this one nursing home where I had a funny encounter with a ghost that loved to play the piano in the sitting area for visitors of the nursing home.
The activity staff would always play music for the residents and most often the songs would be oldies and songs from the 40's. A lot of big band and Motown, things like that. Well I started to notice that when certain songs came on, the piano would begin to play by itself. Especially if it was Rockin Robin. It sounded as if it was being played by a child or someone who didn't really know how to play but tried anyway. As soon as that song would come on the playing would become more intense.
Not many people noticed this due to being too busy at work. But some residents sure did. They would just stare and look all over to see if it was something maybe automatic. One day as I was near the piano doing my med pass the stereo was on louder than usual and as soon as Rockin Robin came on the playing started. An office worker who thought the music was too loud came to turn it down. I said with a serious tone "I wouldn't do that; you might make the ghost mad". He looked at me like I was nuts. He said "what ghost?" waved me off and walked away. A few moments later when he was walking back past the piano, Bang! All the piano keys sounded at once. Let me tell you that the man jumped so high in the air he almost yelled, it was hilarious! He tried not to go near the piano again after that.
The ghost continued to play when his favorite songs came on. I never actually saw who it was, but many residents claim to have seen a tall black man in a red shirt wandering the halls at night. We had no residents or visitors who matched this description. I think this might have been someone who passed away there many years earlier.
I have a few more to tell and I will post again soon. God bless.
