- Hi Brian, We have a couple of ghost stories amongst my
family members and my husband and I.
- 1. When my Mother was a child, her my Grandmother used
to chastize her for throwing a ball up and down the stairs leading to the
second floor of the house. My Mother wouldn't stop it, and she stood at
the top of the stairs and let the ball drop so it would bounce down the
steps. My Grandmother appeared at the foot of the stairs before the ball
arrived and all of a sudden it bounced back up the stairs to my Mother.
My Mother was a mere child, I wasn't even thought of then, but it freaked
her out so much that she told my sister and I this story when we were youngsters.
- 2. Another story that my Mother told my sister and I,
took place when our Mother was but a child. She was with her Grandmother
and Grandfather, my Great Grandparents and all of a sudden they all heard
the wolves outside. my Great Grandmother opened the door and threw out
some salted pork. . . the howling eventually stopped, this was in winter.
. . it was later in the night when suddenly there was a knock at the door
and it was a man who was begging for a drink of water. My Mother has often
wondered if that man was somehow responsible for the howling that had taken
place earlier in the evening.
- 3. My Mother-in-Law died and she has been talking to
us via our coffee makers ever since her ashes arrived in our home. We
have gone through many coffee makers and have found no other excuse other
than they are being used for some unknown soul to communicate with us.
I know it sounds weird, but every coffee maker would make buzz noises
long after the brewing was done and we'd say, "hi mom!" and the
buzzing would continue for awhile. Some coffee makers were not even plugged
in and would turn themselves on. My husband and I witnessed that...spookey
- 4. In one of the houses we lived in, I was in the basement
where the laundry machines were and I was reaching for an ashtray when
all of a sudden it slide across the counter and to my hand. There was
no condensation...wetness under the ashtray, nor was the counter on a slope.
Lightbulbs were always bursting in that house too.
- 5. We have moved from the above mentioned house and
I'm un aware of any ghost visits, our new coffee maker will at times flood
the counter with coffee when there's no known excuse for it not to fill
the caraffe instead...between my husband and I, we can't figure out what
we have done to cause the flood, it's really irritating, also this new
coffee maker doesn't buzz at all, it just makes messes. hehehe.
- Thank you to the writer for sharing these ghost stories.
