My first wife and I rented a house in Feasterville Pa. in the 70's that was a couple hundred yrs. old and my car keys kept getting moved from the table by my LR chair to the fireplace mantle.

After a month or so of cleaning and fixing up the key moving stopped. I think it was because they finally figured someone was finally taking good care of the place and they were content.

I love rattling cages, especially theirs.

My wife and I walked into the living room of that house and we both saw a woman standing on the landing of the stairs. She was semi-transparent and dressed in1800's style clothing and just looking at us. I tried talking to her and she seemed to reply but neither of us could hear her, she seemed to understand me though. It seems she had lived here most of her life and probably died here. She admitted moving the keys by willing them to move to get our attention. She also was appreciative of us fixing up 'her house' and her 'appearance' to us was to thank us. The thing that struck me most was that although her image was clear enough to make out that she was an attractive woman, it was impossible to tell her age - at times she looked in her 30s,and others in her 50s, and at times anywhere in between. That was really intriguing and she wouldn't respond to my guesses. I guess dead women won't give away their age either. chuckle

Correction: We moved in there in 1968 not the 70's

I had a deaf friend who taught me to lip read when I was a kid. It was very difficult to read hers though, because of the fuzziness of her face and the way it kept changing ages. I tried to ask pointed questions to pin things down and I could definitely read the no's and most of the yeses. I couldn't get a time period when she lived there, just sometime after 1840. I was trying to go through the presidents to pin it down but she disappeared while doing this. Never saw her again. but saw what she could do. Wow !!!

In the summer of '69 we bought a house in Levittown, Pa. While we were waiting to settle on it , the realtor we were renting from asked if she could take over a room in this house to set up her office to operate. We agreed to let her use the dining room since she waived the rent for that month. Things went well for a week or so until she called me downstairs and asked if we had pushed everything on her desk onto the floor. I assured her we had not, because we had gone to bed very late and were sleeping in. I helped her pick things up, and the last thing I picked up was a set of plans for remodeling the house with some radical changes. I then told her about the ghost and suggested maybe she didn't like the planned changes.

A week later we made settlement and spent a few days cleaning and painting the new place We moved everything to our new house except for the garage, and gave here all the keys to the house, keeping the garage keys. When we returned 3 days later to clean out the garage, she was madder than a hornet, crying and the cops were there. As the story unfolded: a crew had put her realty sign in front, and begun tearing down part of the house the day before. When she opened up that morning her office was a shambles, furniture and file cabinets overturned with records and papers strewn everywhere . It was a real mess.

The cops said there was no sign of forcible entry, the demolished part was securely sealed off and the new locks she had installed were undamaged. One cop in questioning me asked if she might have got drunk and did it herself. I told him I didn't think so and told him about the ghost.. He laughed and said he thought that was a logical explanation because he had been through paranormal experiences. I'm glad the realtor knew I had been out of town the night before and it couldn't be me. Within a year the house was torn down and I never heard of her business or her name again

What a wonderful buildup to Halloween but alas, it is over and gone.  Maybe a new vein of descriptive literature would be appropriate

If I'd have seen the one in the first example I'd have asker her if she's got a good looking daughter over 18 who'd be interested in dating an older bloke and then I'd jump off Beachy Head and meet her on the 'other side'.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With my luck she'd have probably then turned me down for a date.lol
