Story the second. My cousin studied aviation at university, and is qualified as an airline pilot. When he was staying somewhere whilst racking up some flying experience, he used to regularly hear two sets of footsteps on a gravel path go past his ground floor window and carry on. Not so odd - except he suddenly realised one day that the paths were all paved. Upon making some enquiries, he found out that where he was staying was a converted barracks for airmen, and there used to be two buildings further on down the field that were pulled down sometime after the war. Possibly explicable, but the airfield was reputed to be haunted.
There are definitely haunted officers' quarters at Fort Leavenworth. I'm told that there is no shortage of officers volunteering to take them, perhaps because they want a ghost encounter, or perhaps because they don't believe in ghosts and want to live in a historical building.  The buildings are among the oldest on post.

This confirms Rod Serling was onto something with his haunted military episodes of the Twilight Zone  8)

I was walking a city owned hiking trail yesterday, on what used to be military land. I was taking pictures of the leftover old military buildings in the woods. There was some strong energy there. It definitely didn't feel like just plain old empty buildings.

I seem to have a little "friend" who likes to help me out.

I have a terrible habit of dropping/putting down things I use regularly (my phone, my keys, my cards) and then not being able to find them again. This can be quite stressful, especially if I need them because I need to leave soon or something.

On multiple occasions, I've sat down in the middle of my room and said "I really need my key/card/phone/etc, please help" and then within 30 seconds, I find it, even though it was definitely, without a doubt 100% NOT there before. And it's often in a spot in wouldn't naturally be placed or fall.

The most interesting thing is, this has occurred in multiple places we've lived, so it's not the house...

Do you have something youve bought and taken with you each time youve moved maybe?
Sounds like theyre just having a bit of fun with you though since they give it back when you ask :)

Probably have a lot of things that I've taken from house to house, although as far as I know there's nothing particularly antique that could have a "history".

I always make sure to say thank you when something returns.  :)

This is not a ghost, this is the Little People.
If you tell them firmly that you need something back, and ask them to return it they will...but rarely to the location it was in.
And they will simultaneously take something else. If you're lucky, it will be something you don't need right away, and you will find it on your own later, or never realize it's missing.

So I made my bed today, and, like always, I smoothed out and fluffed up the down comforter.  Looked like a freshly made bed.

Later, I went upstairs and saw that the bed had what looked like a butt indentation where someone had sat on it.  I asked my daughter if she sat on my bed, and she said she didn't.  Well, *I* didn't sit on it, and the cats were outside.

This is what it looked like.  And this is not the first time this has happened!  The first time, I dismissed it.  This time I can't.



Can ghosts leave butt prints?

Yes. Have you noticed anything else weird lately?

Are you sure the mattress isn't starting to sag?  It kind of looks like it might be a slight body divot imprint from where someone sleeps in the same position a lot.

No, the mattress is solid and in very good condition.

I thought it must have been my daughter, but she swears up and down she wasn't even IN my bedroom today.

Not lately, but so many weird things have happened over the years, I don't pay much attention to them anymore.  This was kind of hard to ignore, though.  :)

Totally, and I have a story about that.

My dad always goes to bed before my mom, but she'll usually go to bed within 30 minutes of him. So, when he heard someone enter the room and felt the bed go down, like someone was lying on the other side of the bed. Dad turned over to pat Mom and tell her good night...only there was no one there. There was a big indentation, but Mom didn't come up to bed until 30 minutes later.  :o

If I were your dad, your mom would have come upstairs PDQ...as would have anyone else in the house, the next-door neighbors, the police, the fire department, several ambulances and anyone else within earshot.  ::)

Dad told me that at the time he was too scared to move, scream, or anything else, which I don't blame him for, as it's the first time something like that happened.

That's how I felt when I saw my whatever-it-was in my bedroom. DH was actually right there and I could easily have said "DH, wake up and look at this," but I was too busy thinking "CRUD MONKEYS! CRUD MONKEYS! CRUD MONKEYS! CRUD MONKEYS!."

LOL! I'd almost swear you were Dad. He woke up once and our resident neighbourhood ghost was standing on the other side of the bed, bending over and staring into Mother's face. That was about his reaction. I think a giant spider would have been more welcome!

The most I've ever had in that regard was having the bed jiggle as if the cats have jumped up on it when they haven't. It amuses me that the ghost cat is apparently just as heavy as my 20+ lb kitty.
