Both of my grandpa's died before I was born (I'm 21 at the moment) so I never knew them. I've only seen pictures. We've had an old bar (if you call it something else in other countries - you keep alcohol behind it, and hang glasses from it, etc) in the family for a while now. My mother tells me it belonged to her father when he was a young man. It's really old and beautiful, but we always kept it hidden away under the house because we never had the room for it. It gathered dust and became quite horrible.
When I was about eleven my parents retrieved it from under the house, dusted it, and polished it, etc, until it was beautiful again. They placed it in the dining room to show it off. That night I was eating dinner at the dining table. I looked up at the bar and saw a shadowy figure of a man, running his hands along the surface of the bar as though pleased with it. It was gone before my eyes had time to focus on what I had seen, and the imprint seemed etched into my eyes.
I was shocked and didn't tell anyone what I had seen. But I think it might have been my grandpa. I can't be sure, as I have never seen him in real life... But the clothes, hair, glasses etc seemed like the ones I had seen in photos. The fact that it was not JUST shadow, but I remember it clothed, etc, really sticks in my mind.
What do you think? I have a few other experiences that I will post soon.
