Went with a friend and her realtor to look at a property.  We walked in and the whole vibe felt off.  We all felt it. 

The oddest thing was when we went out on the back deck and took a look around the yard area.  We then went to the basement and walked out into the yard.  From the time it took us to walk down the steps to the basement and out the yard, we noticed that someone opened the door to the backyard. It was a small thing but we were all freaked out by it. 

Like I said, the whole place had an odd vibe to it. 

I also had a dream about the place last night.  lol.  It was a really weird experience.

Roe, I've mentioned Creepy Old Lady house more than once here.

It was a house I looked at before I bought Bedside Manor.  It had not been cleaned out since its previous occupant had died there.  The house smelled sickly sweet, there were pill bottles on almost every available surface, and no actual basement...just a trapdoor cellar.  Also there was a huge decorative bowl filled with keys in one room.

When we looked at the place, the power was off as the house had been empty for some time so the utilities had been cut off to discourage people from breaking in and squatting there. (no power, heat or water).  So all we had to explore the house with was some flashlights the listing agent had left.  In the end, it was my father (usually among the most prosaic of men) who said, "We should go, we shouldn't be in here."

I told my parents if I bought that place my power bill would be through the roof because I would NEVER turn off any lights.
"After all this time?"
"Always."

I hear my husband when he is not here sometimes. It's kind of creepy. A couple of times I have actually answered before I realised he wasn't home

I work in a hundred-and-fifty year old mansion and all day I've been hearing a sound that is eerily like someone calling "Hello?" I think - I hope! - it was just a door creaking in the wind, but it scared the life out of me when I was opening up for the day, and was seriously giving me the heebie-jeebies by closing.

Well, on the plus side, Hello is friendly or at least neutral...you weren't being screamed at to get out.   ;)

Very true. I hadn't thought of it like that. It still gave me quite a turn when I first heard it in what was meant to be a complete empty house though.

I'm now trying to imagine how I shall react if I hear something more negative. I suspect I'm silly enough to go looking for the source of it...  :o

I believe I've talked about how the late music director at my church is around the church and does "pranky" stuff to get noticed. Well, it's starting to get...worse. The current music director was practicing for service on Saturday, and after he was done, he walked down from the organ loft to go back to his office. He was almost to the door when he heard a loud "Clang! Crash!" behind him. He turned around, and one of the handbells had hit the wall and dropped to the ground. The handbells were all the way up in the organ loft, and the only way a handbell could have hit the wall is if it was thrown. The trouble is, no one was there but Current Music Director.

Do you think the old MD didn't care for the performance?

I think he doesn't care for Current Music Director in general, but that's a whole other story. Old Music Director was the kind of person who banged down on the piano when he was ticked at us for not doing something the right way, so I'm not surprised he's going to these measures to be noticed in death.

Heh, that sounds like the ghost in the conservatory at a college I used to attend.  She once picked up and threw a pipe from the organ past a girl who'd just cursed up a storm on the stage.  That began the great tradition of immediately following any bad words with, "Sorry, Opal!" when in the building.

As a handbell ringer, I cringe. Poor handbell! Hope it was something small, like a 5 or 6 instead of a lower 3. A smaller bell might survive the crash a little better.

Although, your bell choir can now joke about the bell performing an actual "Wall Mart"  ;)

Most of the bells at violinp's and my church are small ones. I think C3 is our biggest bell.

I didn't check which one it was, but it was definitely one of the smaller bells. It was mostly okay, though.

I've never thought of myself as particularly sensitive, but since we've moved into this house I keep almost seeing a white cat out of the corner of my eye.  I've seen it standing in the hallway outside my office door.  I have three cats but none of them are even close to white, and they don't seem to be bothered by anything.  The feeling has been sharp enough that I've actually looked in that direction and seen nothing.  I don't know anything about the history of this house, except that the previous owners trashed the place after the house was repossessed by the bank, and because it seems to be different from most of the houses on this block and some of the design features it has I suspect it might be the oldest house on the block.  I know it was built in the early 1960s.

So where does the white cat come in?

I think we have an extra cat too. Our house isn't all that old, but it's on a dead end, quiet residential street, so it's ideal for cats - they average about one every other house. There was a cat flap here when we moved in, which was already there when the land lady bought it, and quite often I'll catch cat-shaped movement out of the corner of my eye that most definitely isn't my own cat. He doesn't seem bothered about sharing his cat flap with a ghost kitty, though.
