    Anyone ever see a real ghost ???

    When I was young my parents lived in a house
    that was haunted . . no joke
    Voices in the middle of the night
    Our dog at the time would bark and growl when there was nothing there
    Bumps and bangs on the walls

    anybody else ?

    In the cold winters when I was young, I'd play in the basement of our home. My Lionel train set was on a large custom table down there, and I'd spend hours with it.

    But sometimes, in a certain spot, I'd get a sudden chill, and be overcome with fear, and the sense that I was being watched. I'd run up the stairs screaming, and flee into my mother's arms, telling her a ghost was downstairs.

    Year later, when I was 19, I had a very bad motorcycle accident. It disfigured my face, and caused brain damage that prevented me from ever playing the piano again as I once could, and it greatly reduced my mental abilities.

    Falling into depression, I attempted suicide several times, in that same basement. Needless to say, I didn't succeed, never able to go through with it.

    Nearly 20 years later, my younger sister told me some family secrets I never knew, told to her by our late mother. I was aware our grandfather had died 2 years before I was born, from a stroke as I was always told. My sister now said that wasn't true, a lie the family had concocted.

    He had in fact hanged himself in the basement, in the very spot where I always felt those cold chills. And in the same place where I had attempted my own suicide.

    I can only imagine my mother's emotions, when I'd come screaming out of that basement, telling her there was a ghost, in the same place where her own father had hanged himself. But she never said a word to me, only sharing the secret with my sister many years later.

    I'm still not sure I believe in ghosts & spirits, but some things do make me wonder.

    I have... twice. The first one was right after the singer Aaliyah died. I was having a hard time with it because she was so young and talented. I was sleeping and woke up. I sat up and there she was sitting on my window. We talked and she let me know that everything happened for a reason.

    The second happened when a group of friends stayed at a summer house for the week. My friend saw someone walking up the stairs while he was lying down...he went upstairs and no one was there. Then I saw him. I was lying in bed with this girl and he was standing near the foot of my bed. He had a beard and a red and black lumberjack shirt.

    I've been convinced for many years that this house is haunted. When I bought it all the paperwork indicated that it was built in 1920. Turns out that 1920 is a sort of default date in this area so the house could be much older.

    When I lived here alone I swear objects like hammers and brushes would turn up in rooms where I knew I hadn't left them.

    Even now you can be in the basement and hear what sounds like the front door opening and footsteps walking from the door to the kitchen. I've even called out a number of times thinking it's the boyfriend/husband/whatever.

    It's probably just an old, creaking house and I'm probably just forgetful...but sometimes I wonder.
