Haunted House

Is it possible? For a house that has never seemed haunted to become so? My Dutch colonial house was built in 1918. Nothing unusual has ever happened before. But in the last 3 days, on each day, something has been on the floor that doesn't really have a way of getting there.

Day 1: An ice cube makes it's way behind the dog bowl in the kitchen.
Day 2: An Amsterdam guidebook fell from the bookshelf in the bedroom.
Day 3: A receipt moved from the table to several feet away on the floor in the dining room.

Mysterious. Do you believe in ghosts?

Hmmm ... I do believe in ghosts, Lucia. My mother-in-law swore that her husband took care of her after he died until she moved in with us. I've seen some strange lights in places where they didn't belong, either.

Maybe you brought some one home with you from your last trip, or some one needs you to notice something... or, as happened to me one time, maybe you need to change the locks!

Not to be overly scientific about this but are you anywhere near where earthquakes happen? Is it possible there are little rumblings moving your stuff around?

Or it could be a ghost that just felt the need to delurk? As it were?

Absolutely. After my brother died, little things would happen, like a light turning itself on, or a music box playing by itself. It was strangely comforting.

Another ghost comes by now and then. He has a sense of humor. The little things that happen are like little puns.

I've never experienced it myself, but I'm openminded. Not so much that EVERYTHING walks through, but certainly the more persistent and interesting things.

I am positive there are spirits all around us, but I think they often get blamed for everyday events. Only YOU will know in your gut what could be causing it, which could be anything from drafts to earth or house vibrations/settling to uneven surfaces to a curious pet. But it certainly COULD be a ghost. I had one in an old house (1895) that I lived in for years---the rocking chair would move all alone, and I would smell cigarette smoke, and my landlord would hear my floor creak and footsteps when I was not at home. Once he thought someone had actually broken in and came down with a baseball bat! But I was never uneasy or afraid---I believe most of what we experience is just residual energy or a lingering presence. No biggie.

Yeah, I do. I don't understand the idea, really, but there's something. I kind of look at like UFO's. Whatever they are, they're still unidentified so ghosts? I'll call these moments haunted.

Of course I believe in ghosts. Good thing you have a little dog to watch out for them.
