Dang Lou, the Drop Bare was one legend I had hoped the rest of the country hadn't found out about yet. Just tell all our secrets why don't you lol.

Pulsus - wow, now this is the kind of ghost story I like. Don't get me wrong, I don't like the fact that you and your family went through what you did, especially your step-dad "falling" the way he did. No, that's not what I mean at all. What I mean is, you have told an honest-to-goodness "ghost story" that is, in my humble opinion, totally believable.

I agree with the others that it's a shame your ghost couldn't have just lived peacefully with you and your family. It's also a shame that you were so young then that you didn't know to find out who she was and why she was still there. As Lou said, the reconstruction obviously upset her. Geez, I could go on all day theorizing, so I'll quit now. 😆

Side note to those who don't know what a drop bear is...OMG! They are the things nightmares are made of. You'll never see koala bears the same way once you see a drop bear 😭 😨

Wait a minute, BJJ. It was my understanding the Texas...?

Wait, here it is:

Texas Drop Bare: a traditional courtship practice of the Texarkana area, usually initiated by a sudden jolt of surprise when Lynyrd Skynyrd 8-track tapes switch tracks. Most commonly experienced by middle-aged women attempting to relive their youth by drinking beer on a barn roofs, the phenomenon has spread through the rural population and seems prone to those with a low tooth to tattoo ratio. Many times avoidable, the event can sometimes be predicted, often times preempted by the utterance, "Travis, you ain't half bad lookin'" and "Look at all dem twinkly stars"

...ok now I see how come Drop Bear was commented on - O/P ref second to last paragraph.

I was wondering all the time why BJJ started posting about drop bear.

Pulsus how would you describe the sound?

Drop Bear Reference! Totally awesome 😁 Great story, I really enjoyed reading it. It seems she really didn't want any changes to be made to the house. I'm glad your step-father didn't suffer any serious injuries from that fall, and that no one else got hurt. The way you described the sound your mother heard gave me the creeps. If I ever heard something like that, res assured I would be under the bed in a flash 😨 Thank you for sharing this with us, going in my fav's ❤

Guy, drop bears are the evil kinfolk of koalas. Nasty little buggers who sit in trees, then drop onto their unsuspecting victims.
Lou, I can just imagine that becoming a local legend, the Texas Drop Bear, falling from pines and crushing her victims flat. I could be next Chicken Head Lady, or Goat Man. 😆

BJJ...Drop Bear demonstration, please!

Guyinsane,

No offense intended, but I'm dying laughing... Sorry the language barrier is forcing you to jump more hurdles than you should have to...

Funny isn't as funny when you explain funny... But man... That was funny... And you are one hell of a good sport.

all right all right... I ain't able check the urban dictionary... What is a "drop bear" - man falling from a height?

Pulsus - that's some scary things going on there... Especially the tornado growl

pulsus: Great story!...I agree with BJJ and Lou 😲...I'm wondering how she reacted when the house was built?...We'll never know, but I bet until your family moved in, and built the bird sanctuary, she wasn't very accommodating...

Thank you for posting!

I had to LOL about the drop bear! 😆...Hey, maybe that's what it was?! 😆

Beware the drop bear! 😆
Right up to the point your step-dad fell off the roof for no good reason, I had hoped this would be one of those stories where the living and the departed found a way to co-exist. But, it seems she had no desire to peacefully co-exist after the renovation began. I think you're right about her belonging to the wealthy family you mentioned. Great account. ❤

wow, pulsus.

That was some experience. She obviously was very possessive of the property... Whether she had been a previous owner, or not, she did not take to the renovations... As you pointed out.
Certainly past the point that this would make a difference, but I wonder if communicating to her during the renovations would have made a difference. Sometimes change can be interpretted by the elderly, or the deceased as a desire to get rid of eveything... She may have thought that by changing the house, you were trying to evict her.

Lou

P.S. I think you now hold the new record for the use of the word rumpus, in a posting.;)
