My Haunted Life Too


The Victorian House Basement

11 September 2015 | September 2015

I recently wrote of this house in Minneapolis that I lived in with friends in the 1970s. But there are at least two more scary stories about that house that I would like to share. My girl friend was going to night school and I was drinking beer and watching TV one night when Patty, a room mate, knocked on my door and wanted to know if my girlfriend was around. I told her that she would not be home until midnight and she complained about the spookiness of the the house and wanted me to sit in her room with her and watch TV there while she did her study work as her boyfriend was out of town. So I’m sitting there watching tv and drinking a beer while

Old Woman

10 September 2015 | September 2015

About ten years ago, I was staying with one of my friends and her family in Memphis. They lived in an old house and I have always gotten the creeps when I was there alone. One evening I went to a movie with my friend and we came back late. We walked into the Kitchen and to our amazement we saw an old woman standing against the door. She was almost bent double and up against the door as though she were listening. She turned, looked at us and smiled. I walked towards her and she disappeared. It was freaky but that spirit didn’t seem to mean us any harm.

My family owns a hunting camp up near Atlanta and we go there each year for a week or so. One year, my father invited a few of his friends and their families. The house that we owned was built in the 1800’s and my father had rebuilt it from a ruin. The previous owners name was inscribed at the back of the house in a large stone near the foundation. His name was Albert. Each year weird things would happen in the house—items would go missing, strange noises, a weird sound that sounded like gunfire—all kinds of things. That year we put some of my dad’s friends and their families up on folding lawn chairs in the den. A few nights into the trip several of the guests complained

Uncle’s Last Visit

08 September 2015 | September 2015

It was 1984 and I was about 6 yrs.old at that time. It was the first time that I realized that I had this third eye. In my younger years, I saw a lot of creepy things, but this one I could say was my first! My uncle Al had just died in a car crash a few days ago. We were so very closed. He used to play with me and even made a swing for us to use for an afternoon nap. One night, a day after his funeral. I just can’t understand my feelings when I was about to go to bed. I had this urged to open my eyes even if I am too sleepy. For three hours, I just stared at the ceiling and the

The Farmer’s Daughter

07 September 2015 | September 2015

I was Topeka Kansas born, but grew up in the Chicago suburbs. I went through the carpenters union apprentice program after high school. Returning to the Chicago area and after being a carpenter for a few years, I met what now would be called a cougar. This beautiful woman was from Ireland and though never a love relation, she owned a lot of property and had me renovate 6 or 8 places. She owned a bar and had apparently divorced 8 wealthy men. I only knew this as the patrons in her bar knew of at least 4, although when cleaning out a shed behind her house as requested, I threw out wedding pix from 8 obviously wealthy guys she had married! Anyway she had me redo and make apartments

What Are You Going to Do? Shoot A Ghost?

04 September 2015 | September 2015

In about 1976, I moved from the Chicago area to Minneapolis to live with a girl friend. I’m originally from Topeka Kansas and now live out east. Anyway we were renting a Victorian house with another girl from our high school and a couple, he being older and a spy working for the army (ours). This Victorian house was on Lyndale (?) Ave. I’m not sure now of the spelling, but it was totally haunted! The ghosts, as we were sure there were more than one, were very active. My then girl friend would see this old man standing behind her in the many builtins with mirrors and when turning around would see nothing and upon looking back in the mirror he would be right there again. This ghost would

The Cigar Smoking Ghost

03 September 2015 | September 2015

I bought this 4 story stone house and farm almost 11 years ago. 4800 square ft, high ceilings, 6 fire places; built in 1805 and on the National Registry of Historic Places in south central PA. I’m a carpenter and specialize in historic renovations having moved here from the DC area to fight an ex over seeing my son. That didn’t go well as you can’t fight money! That’s another story anyway. When I went to closing, I told the couple that I was buying it from that I would be disappointed if there was no ghost. She laughed and said the ghost smokes pipes and cigars and makes a lot of racket, but is harmless. I had lived in a very haunted house in Minneapolis when I was young

Boy In The Closet

02 September 2015 | September 2015

It was in 2008. I was working for this doctor as a certified nurses assistant and was also rooming in his home from which he had a private practice. One day, I was painting in the living room when I heard someone crying. The doctor came RUNNING down the hall at this crying noise to see if I was ok. Later that evening, the doctor and his daughter went out to dinner. I was tired and decided that I would take a bath, but as I began to undress, I heard a lady crying. I opened the bath room door, but no one was there. I went back into the bathroom and the same thing happened again, so I looked again and this time I saw a lady with all

Old Friend Says Goodbye

01 September 2015 | August 2015

This incident took place in Austin, Texas on August 19, 1995 between 11:30pm and Midnight. A friend of mine named Kevin had been going thru some bad times of late. He had been suffering from partial paralysis from an injury he had sustained years ago in a diving accident. His business was failing, his bank account was dwindling and since he had lost his lease with the apartment he lived in, he had to live with a friend until he could get back on his feet. As sometimes happens in all of us, Kevin lost hope and felt that there was no way out and so, committed suicide on August 17th. I was told about this the next day by a mutual friend of ours. A bunch of us got

Unborn Child

31 August 2015 | August 2015

When I was 12 weeks pregnant, I began to bleed and the pregnancy ended. I was devastated.. Years later, I got pregnant again. I was about 5 months pregnant when my Husband and I started hearing running sounds upstairs from my bedroom to the landing and down the stairs. We could also hear the handrail move as it was directly next to the living room where we were sat. There was never anything there when we got up and looked. This went on for a while and then baby things that I had bought went missing – toys etc. Then one day my neighbor came over to me as I got out of my car and asked who was in the house as there were apparently children laughing and running

Electrical Fault

30 August 2015 | August 2015

A friend of mine at college moved into a new flat at the beginning of term. It was a nice, big, well-equipped flat too, and the rent was almost too good to be true. After a month, he moved out again. Here is why. Over a beer or two, he told me that the place simply seemed too good to be true. The price was too low for such a nice place so conveniently located. However, he took it and counted his lucky stars. At first, all seemed fine and dandy. Periodically, however, especially around pub throwing out time, the doorbell would ring. He would go to the door and find no one there. Given the time of night it usually occurred, he put it down to drunken and playful

What is paranormal or supernatural activity?

29 August 2015 | What Is a Ghost? and other definitions

According to Wikipedia, paranormal activity can be defined as a subset of pseudoscience. What sets the paranormal apart from other pseudosciences is a reliance on explanations for alleged phenomena that are well outside the bounds of established science. Thus, paranormal phenomena include extrasensory perception (ESP), telekinesis, ghosts, poltergeists, life after death, reincarnation, faith healing, human auras, and so forth. The explanations for these allied phenomena are phrased in vague terms of “psychic forces”, “human energy fields”, and so on. This is in contrast to many pseudoscientific explanations for other nonparanormal phenomena, which, although very bad science, are still couched in acceptable scientific terms. Paranormal and supernatural are terms often used interchangeably to describe the same phenomena.

What Is a Ghost?

29 August 2015 | What Is a Ghost? and other definitions

According to my dictionary anyway, a ghost is an apparition of a dead person which is believed to appear or become manifest to the living, typically as a nebulous image. However, ghosts may be experienced indirectly as noises, emanations, smells, shadows and so on. In fact, ghostly activity might better describe what most people think of as a ghosts and that can be defined more broadly as of or relating to a ghost : suggesting a ghost. In essence, ghostly activity can also be defined as an aspect of paranormal activity.

A Call From A Dead Friend

28 August 2015 | August 2015

Sometimes, passed over friends and relatives simply need to tell us something. Apparently, they sometimes use the phone to do this. One such example of this is the man who with friends drove to a major nearby city the night before his quadruple bypass surgery. They picked a motel and took rooms. As he unpacked a few items, the room phone rang and his friend picked it up. “It’s for you,” she told him looking shocked after all, no one knew they were staying at that Motel. “Hello, is that you?” the voice asked. “Yes,” he said. “Don’t have your surgery tomorrow. It isn’t your time to die,” said the voice. “Who is this?” he asked incredulously. “It’s Jimbo,” said the voice. The only person named Jimbo he could think
