I took the above photo some years ago. Although it’s just driftwood and seaweed I thought it looked like some kind of sea monster! I want to share four stories that happened to me, a couple of which are quite spooky.
My ex-husband and I had rented a farmhouse in rural Maine for a couple of years that was a bit isolated. The first week we were there the bathroom sink faucet turned on by itself! We were talking when we both suddenly heard a rush of water in the sink. I went in and turned it off. It never happened again. Then during the day I sometimes noticed a cigarette smell coming from the staircase. It never lasted long and would disappear. One day the landlord was over and we were in the little in-law apartment attached to the house. For reasons unknown I always referred to it as “grandpa’s room.” I told her that I called it that and she asked me to repeat what I had just said. “That’s so funny you said that. We bought this house from a family and their grandfather was living in this room. He was a chain smoker and passed away at the foot of the staircase in your house.”
I was at an estate sale early (the day before) because I had set an appointment. It was just me and the seller in the empty house. I asked if the person had moved into assisted living. “No, she passed away.” And right after that we both heard a woman’s voice say “HELLO?!” We looked at each other and walked around the house. There was no one else there and the front door was closed.
Earlier today I had coffee with an acquaintance and it turned out that she used to live in the house next to mine before I bought it. She said that she loved to look out her window because the elderly lady enjoyed feeding the chipmunks that would come to her on the deck. She has since passed away and I got a warm feeling inside as if she has been watching over me and the chipmunks, maybe helping things along from up above!
I have been missing Wishy a great deal. Wayne came home the other day and showed me this photo. He took a different route home than usual when he saw this. I’d like to think it was some kind of sign from him!
Do you have any spooky stories or have you had any brushes with the supernatural??
