30 December 2020:
As most of you who keep up with thinks know by now, my faithful dog Wesley passed away on the night of December 25 of this year. As most of you also know, energy never dies, and everything living thing is made up of energy, so in some form we all live on.
I have a couple of events which happened so far, as to remind me that Wesley can come around when he pleases.
1st: On the night of his passing, after finally being able to go to bed, and then after some time being able to sleep, I was awaken early in the morning by the sound of him breathing in, and out twice. I knew the sound of his breathing very well, and there was no mistaking it. He had come for a visit. Maybe just to say hi, and let me know he was alright.
2nd: Wesley had a habit of checking the grocery bags that I brought home, and sat on the floor to see what was there. He would stick his head into them, and look around. Yesterday I had gone to the store, came back, and sat the bags on the floor, and I looked, and one of the plastic bags was moving on the top, as if he was looking into it. I watched it, and the others for awhile, and it was the only one with movement. There was no fan on, or air from the furnace blowing. Just one bag moving around.

Another Ghost Story
The other night, both the dog and I were asleep, when there was a very hard "push" on the bed. We both woke up, no one in sight. The dog is currently recuperating from an old neck injury which is a reoccurring thing from years back, so he was not very happy. 👻
29 September 2020:
Well, this year has been somehting to not write home about. Personally for me, it has been a pretty good year, but not so for many others. It's been busy, busy for me like always, and the house has been it's normal self, with the moving of objects, and moans, and the like.
I had not realized until today that last year (20190 was the 20th anniversery of the Ghost Cams on the internet, so I missed that celebration. :( 20 years of entertaining people with all things Ghostly, and some things that are not. It has been fun, and just another thing that keeps me busy, along with taking care of the house, and the gardens, and working. I am now in the midst of decorating for Halloween, and wondering what that will be like this year (Covid-19). I enjoy Halloween anyway, so if nothing else it will be a month of fun for me!
9 September 2020:
Came inside from walking the dog last night to hear a lady moan, as if in pain. Nobody there. 👻
Last week we had another of the, dog goes upstairs at night before me, and proceeds to bark at something across the room, episodes again. 👻👻
23 June 2020:
We are Live in the Basement. I was going to do this because the website had been down since last night, but I see it is back up again. I have already set everything up down there so here it is for your viewing pleasure. I apologize for the glasses, but it's dark down there, and I couldn't see to type.
Helpful Ghost Story.
I was filling up a water pitcher today, and got distracted and forgot about it. When I came back I saw that the faucet had been turned off, and the pitcher was full. 👻

23 October 2019:
I heard a knocking on a door, in the middle of the night, last night. I know it wasn't the front door, because I would have had a recording of it. It was faint enough that it sounded like it was one of the downstairs doors, like the dining room, or the closed pocket door in the living room. I listened for it to happen again, but it did not. 👻

I have a few ghostly happenings to relate to you.
First, about a week ago I had a bulb go out, or so I thought. I have this little candle lamp I turn on for the dog so he can see his way upstairs at night, because he goes up before I do. When I went to turn it off one night it was out. I thought I had forgot to turn it on, so I turned the switch, but it did not come on. Then I thought the bulb had blown, so I went to unscrew it to replace it, and found that it had been unscrewed already. Hmmmm...
The second story begins with watching an episode of someone else's haunted house 4 nights ago. In the story, they had helpful ghost who would open doors for them, etc. The next day it was chilly outside, and I had come inside, and began doing something in the kitchen, and I noticed that I had left the door open, and it was now getting cold inside. I remembered the show from the night before, and thought I would try it out, so I said "Could you please close the door", and it began to close, but stopped about 4 inches still open. I then said, "Thank you, but it's not closed all the way..." It then slowly closed the rest of the way. Again I thanked them very much.
Lastly was just today. I was on the couch watching TV, and the dog had been up there also, but I saw him walk across the floor. I thought it was him until I realized that he was still on the couch. Could it have been the spirit of my former dog? Happy Haunting!
26 March 2018:
I have a strange little story for you. It was this past Saturday morning, and when I woke up, my neck hurt on the right side. When I went to work, it hurt bad enough that I had to take 2 ibuprofen for it. When I got home Wesley's neck was also stiff, also on the right side, and I had to give him his medicine for it. Odd that it happened to the both of us at the same time. To my knowledge we had not done anything for the pain to appear. It just did.

Google Home Mini in the Old Haunted House:
I wonder if ghost learn things? I was sitting at my computer (in the Library) this morning, and I heard Google Home (in the kitchen) say "I didn't understand what you said?", Then it said "I can't help you find what you are looking for." For those of you who don't know, Google responds to the sound of your voice. When you set it up, it has you repeat 2 sentences over a few times so it knows what your voice sounds like. I don't know who was talking to Google, or what they were looking for, but I know it wasn't me.
05 January 2018:
Another year has flown by already. I have to apologies for neglecting this page. I seem to find it easier to Tweet about the occurrences, or put them on facebook, than to post them here, I will try to be better at that this year...
I do have an story from the other night. Nothing earth shattering, but just something to say, yes the spirits are still here, and active.
The dog and I had gone upstairs for the night, and this was one of those nights when Wesley was restless, and would not lay down. he then looked across the room, and began barking. Starring at nothing I could see, but he was not happy. It took awhile before he settled down for the night. I guess he was not going to lay down until he got them to leave.
24 May 2017:
On January first of this year a man died who was one of those who had most recently lived in this house (he rented it). Maybe this is the reason the house has been seeing a little turmoil this year. He had lived here for a very long time with his wife and son, and then his grandchildren. His son bought the house (bond for deed), and the man moved out to his mothers house when she died. His son lost the house when he quit making payments, and that is when it was offered to me by the owner. I knew this man, and if he has come back to see the house, it may be that he would not be so happy this it is I who bought the house. Just something to think about, and probably do an investigation of.
10 January 2017:
For the past month, or so, I have noticed this angle has been turning towards the wall. There is nothing new, or different in it's placement, than there has been in the past several years. It has sat in the same place. The only difference is that now I will walk by occasionally, and see it has been turned towards the wall. I guess it goes along with the other things that have been moving in the house lately.
09 January 2017:
I have found another inhabitant of the house who died here. This time it is Mrs. Clara Marie Franck who died of peritonitis on August 30 1918. Peritonitis is inflammation of the peritoneum — a silk-like membrane that lines your inner abdominal wall and covers the organs within your abdomen — that is usually due to a bacterial or fungal infection. Peritonitis can result from any rupture (perforation) in your abdomen, or as a complication of other medical conditions.

22, December 2016:
It's one of those mornings when I smell cigar smoke in the house again. This time it seems to be coming from the basement. I guess everyone wants to be part of the Holidays.
16, December 2016:
I had an interesting experience last night. Wesley (the dog), and I were upstairs in the bedroom, and I looked across the room, and noticed the sheer curtain on one of the windows had fallen. The rod for the curtain is held up by two hooks, so I thought it was strange that it would fall, but I went over and fixed it. When I got back into bed it fell again. I went back over and put it back up on the hooks, and the dog sat up on the bed, and stared across the room for the next 10 minutes... How a curtain rod could lift up off the hooks, and fall is a little odd, but it has also never done this in the many years that it has hung there.
This has not been the only thing falling lately. In the above photos you can see the room with the curtain, Then there is the mirror that fell the other day. I was not at home at the time, but I found it on the floor beneath the spot that it hangs. It did not break, but it was on the floor. and in the final photo is the shelf that after years of being in the same spot all of the sudden I find it tilting to the right. The bottle atop the telephone fell this morning as well. I guess we are currently being visited by the Ghost of Christmas Past again.

Had an iron cross move in the living room yesterday. There is a heavy iron cross that sits on the coffee table, and yesterday when I walked into the living room I noticed that it had shifted it's position from where it normally sits. the first 2 photos is where it shifted, and last 2 where it is normally.
4 November, 2016:
Things are moving in the house. They are not moving far from their place, just a little. Just enough to notice they have moved. Take this Vase for example, it always sits in the corner on the floor in the downstairs bathroom. I notice yesterday when I walked in that it had moved, as you can see. Not a great amount of distance, but I was did not move it, and I know the dog did not. As I said in the beginning, this is not the only thing moving.
Below you will see the 2 photos of the vase that moved. vase in it's regular place vase where it was moved to.
18, July 2016:
I walked into an unused bedroom in the house the other day and found this hand print was left on the bed cover. I should point out that it is only myself, and the dog in the house, and I had had no visitors, of the earthly type, anyway.
04 May 2016:
Awaken about 4 in the morning by the sound of footsteps moving quickly across either the hallway, or one of the other two upstairs bedrooms along the hallway. After that, all was quiet again.

A Female spirit in the downstairs bathroom???
I came downstairs this morning, and when I went into the bathroom I found the toilet seat, and lid both in the down position.
You may remember that happening last year with the bathroom on the second floor. In fact I looked it up, and it was also in January, but on the 23 of the month (It happened on the14 of April 2015 as well) . At that time I had said that I never leave them down. In this latest case I had used this bathroom just prior to going upstairs for the night, so I do know that both the lid, and the seat were up. Friendly reminder from the feminine past I suppose, but was it technically a ghost, or poltergeist?
Here is the definition a Poltergeist: This is a german word meaning "Noisy Ghost." If you are in the presence of a poltergeist, you will know because this type of ghost can physically move, throw, smash, or misplace objects. These ghosts can move objects to draw your attention, scare you, or just be mischievous and play tricks on you by moving something so you can not find it. This is also commonly confused with telekinesis in which someone can move something with their mind, without physically touching the object. Who knows...
23 November 2015:
While working on the Christmas decorations outside today, I heard a ladies voice say "Well". It sounded like she was pleasantly surprised, but when I turned to see who it was, no one was there. Very strange, but at least she sounded happy.
20 August 2015:
Woke up just before 2 a.m. to the sounds of many, many children laughing, and playing in the room next to mine. Wesley was awake as well. It went on until I got up, and then it stopped. Very strange indeed, I had never heard that many children in the house before. It sounded like they were having quite a good time.
12 June 2015:
A strange thing happened the night before last. Wesley and I were just finishing up our nightly walk. We are coming back to the house, and when we get to the front, he starts barking, and barking at something, or someone in the middle of the street. I see nothing, but the hair on his back is raised up, and he just keeps barking. He wants to go to the middle of the street, and I have to pull him back. Very weird.
05 June 2015:
While working on old recipes for the Vintage Blog this morning, and I look around to see that all 3 of the clocks in the kitchen have stopped. 2 were battery operated, and one was electric. I guess someone didn't want me bothered by time. I could see one of the battery operated clocks stopping, or maybe even two on the same day, but the electric one as well? Strange.
16 May 2015:
It has been a while since I have had something disappear, only to reappear later, but that is what happened to me the other day. The difference this time is the amount of time it took to reappear, and the amount of effort I put into finding it. It was about 2 weeks ago, and the item was my electronic cigarette. It was one of those days that I had been everywhere in the house, as well as outside working in the gardens. I had noticed when I was going up to the 2nd floor that I didn't have my e-cigarette. I always keep it in my pocket, but I thought I had left it on the desk in the Library downstairs. I went upstairs to another desk up there do do a little work on the computer, and when I came back down I went to the first desk to get mu e-cigarette, but it was not there. I looked around the house, I even went back up to the 2nd desk to look there, but I could not find it.
It dawned on me that I must have dropped it outside, so off I went to look for it in all the places that I thought I had been, but it was nowhere, or at least I could not see it.
The next day I looked for it again, in all the same places...the first desk, the second desk, inside and outside, but still could not find it. I did this for a few days, and decided that it was time to buy a new battery. I still had one, but it's a little tough to be caught with a dead battery, and the need for nicotine... I then forgot about the e-cigarette until a couple of days ago.
Each day, at least once in the morning, and once at night I have to visit the desk up on the second floor. I switch a camera to another view in the day, different to that of one at night, I also turn on a light on that desk at night. It was at a time when I was switching one of the cameras that I looked down, and right next to the camera plug-in (the one that I switch every day) I saw my lost e-cigarette sitting next to it. I know that It hadn't been sitting there all that time, because there was no way I could have missed it. I mean that it was right next to the very plug-in that I had been switching every day since I lost it. In fact it was sitting right between the lamp on the desk, and the camera plug-in.
As I said in the beginning of this tale, it was the longest that something of mine has gone missing in the house. Something that I needed, anyway. Who knows how many things there could be that I am not concerned about, or looking for...
14 April 2015:
For the 2nd time in less than 3 months this same strange event has occurred. The only difference from the first time is that it happened at some point during the day, instead of at night. I went to the 2nd floor, walked into the bathroom, only to find the seat, and lid were down on the commode. If you didn't get to read the story from the first time it happened, or you have forgotten, let me state again that this is not something that I ever do. The seat, and lid are always up...unless there is a reason that I have to stand on it, and there wasn't that day. Bathroom specters, that's a scary thought.
08 April 2015:
I did have a strange occurrence last night around 11 p.m. First while in the kitchen I heard a loud noise in the house. I thought maybe Wesley had fallen off the couch, or knocked something over, but no, that did not happen. About a minute after that I heard a really loud crash. I was sure that something large had fallen somewhere in the house, but I looked everywhere, on all 3 floors, and found nothing. I even looked around outside, expecting to find a tree had fallen, but no...nothing there.
09 Feburary 2015:
Today while I was on the 2nd floor putting laundry into the washer I saw a shadow person move past me. At first I thought it was the dog, but I didn't hear his clicking toenails on the floor, and when I went to look for him he was coming out of the upstairs bathroom.
Area where a shadow passed by me.
This is a room that I am currently working on...painting, rearranging, and restoring that "old feel" that it should have. I wouldn't say that it scared me, since at first I thought it was Wesley, but in hindsight it did pass by very close. That's a little creepy.

A Female spirit in the upstairs bathroom???
I awoke this morning, and like most people the first thing is a trip to the bathroom. Only this time it was a little different. When I walked into the bathroom the seat, and lid to the commode were down. While some people may be in the habit of doing that, I never do. It may stem from the fact that I don't like touching them, but never the less, it is not something that I do. One may think, well maybe you were temporarily insane the day before, but just that day before I had wiped off the rim of the bowl with disinfecting wipes. Not the entire toilet, just the rim of the bowl itself, and to do that the seat, and lid would have to be up. I realize that is is just my word, but I assure you, my word has always been good enough for me. :)
It should also be noted that I am in the process of changing 2 rooms around up stairs, and re-painting/re-decorating one of them.
24 December 2014:
When I got home tonight, and opened the door to the living room there was the smell of cigar smoke in the air. No one smokes in the house. I guess someone has come to celebrate the holidays.
22 November 2014:
I had a interesting "First" happen tonight. I had just come in from outside with the dog, and this cabinet door opened on it's own. Like most cabinets, it has a latch which holds it shut, and it does take a little effort to open it. Meaning that it just does not swing open at will. As I said, it was a first, in the kitchen anyway. The cabinet holds, among other things, baking items. Maybe someone was in the mood for a little seasonal baking. :)
2 September 2014:
What I am about to relate to you is a first since I have been in the house, but then again...so many of these happenings are. It happened sometime after the dog and I had gone upstairs. I always shut the door leading to the stairway behind us after we have gone up for the night. This is for a couple of reasons.
1. If I have the Air Conditioning, or Furnace on upstairs, I want to keep the cool/warm air up there.
2. It keeps the dog from wandering all over the house at night.
This door has an old locking mechanism attached to the door knob, and it does work, though I have never locked it. If you look at the pictures below, you will see that you have to push the lever over to the right to lock the door. This is not a lever that can just fall over in to the locked position, meaning that you have to physically move it with your fingers.
This morning when the dog and I were ready to go downstairs I couldn't open the door. I thought it had become stuck during the night, and I kept pulling on it, but it wouldn't open. Then it occurred to me to check the lock. It took a few seconds to find it, given the fact that I never use it, and it was dark in the hallway. It was indeed locked. I don't know how, I don't know why, but it was locked...
See the pictures below.

Strange times in the house. If you read the previous posting on the 19th of August you will see a mention of the house not being quite right. In keeping with that thought, also the other day I was taking a series of photos in the house, and when I went through them later I found what looked like a devil face in one of the photos. It is in a photo of a painting that I have. Could this be the cause of the unsettling times in the house as of late? Personally, I thought it was time for a House Cleansing Ritual
Watch the video for yourself, and see what you think.
19 August 2014:
It happened this past Friday, and though I was home I still cannot figure out what happened, but Wesley my Boston Terrier somehow hurt his back, or neck, or legs... As I say, I cannot figure out what, but he was one unhappy dog. On Saturday morning he was very bad off, only going outside to go to the bathroom when I carried him out. He was on aspirin for dogs, but Sunday morning he still was not better. I decided after I got home from work Sunday afternoon to do a whole first floor cleaning. I do this from time to time when it feels that there is something not so nice moving about the living spaces in the house. You could call it evil, or a darkness, or just an uneasy feeling. It took a few hours of sweeping, dusting, and floor washing. All the while I has a candle burning to also ward off that which may have not so nice things on their mind, and when I was done I went into the library, and sat down at the computer. After a while in walked Wesley, sitting down next to me. He is still not totally himself, but I think I did him a little bit of good. Remember...if your house doesn't feel right it doesn't hurt to do a good cleaning.
31 May 2014:
Footsteps upstairs. I happen to be in the downstairs bathroom when I heard the sound of footsteps directly upstairs from me. This would be in the attic area directly off the "Dead Baby Room", that's what I call it. It's the room with the antique baby things. I went up there, but I couldn't find a reason for the sounds.
21 May 2014:
Visited by the phantom dog again. I was preparing meatloaf in the kitchen (my very first), and I heard the sound of a dog walking on the floor. You know the sound their toenails make on tile, and I turned around expecting to see Wesley, but he was not there. I thought maybe he just left the room, so I went into the dining room, but again, no Wesley. I found him asleep on the couch in the living room. I just wish I knew which dog it was. On a side note, the recipe for the Meatloaf will be in the Recipes, Page 3.
25 April 2014:
In another example of the spirits haunting the house, and their attention getting ways is from last night. First off...It was a dark and stormy night, of course. I had come in the door, and greeted the dog like always, and while we were playing I heard something fall. It sounded like it had come from the basement, so I went into the library and brought up the cameras on the computer, just in case someone had broken in. I didn't see anyone in the basement so I went down to look in person. Nothing there, so I went back to the first floor, and checked every room...nothing. Then I went to the second floor, and again I found nothing. The Ghost were having fun I guess.
16 April 2014:
A Spirit may be Haunting the dog... Something odd has been happening lately when the dog and I go upstairs at night. Normally when it's time to go up for the night the dog runs up the stairs, goes to my bedroom, jumps on the bed, and waits for me. For the last 4 or 5 days he goes up and stops at the doorway to that bedroom. not going in until I do. This is the room where, at night, he will occasionally bark at something in the corner of the room as seen HERE.
That camera (Cam 7) is usually on in the daytime, but I may start leaving it on until we go up for the night. Very strange...

I might have a ghost dog, or a dark little ghost something.
I was in the kitchen tonight, and saw what I thought was Wesley peek around the corner, so I said "Hi Wesley", I looked again and he was gone. I went looking for him and he was sitting under a desk in another room. He couldn't have gotten there that fast, so I don't know what it was. I suppose it could have been my previous dog, Maxwell, come in for a visit. He and Wesley are the same breed, and Maxwell did live here for the first 4 years I was in the house, before he passed. It was either that, or I have a dark little something running around.

Paranormal Investigation of the "Cold Room".
I have Posted a new paranormal video from an investigation in the "Cold Room" with some interesting EVP's, and Orb's/White apparitions.
You can find all of the videos HERE
I also have a little story about a pair of scissors that I have. It's about how they went missing for several days and then came back! They disappeared about a week ago from the drawer I keep them in the kitchen, and I looked all over for them, but today they reappeared -in the drawer in the kitchen... Darn little ghosts!

Happy Haunted Paranormal New Year to you!
Why not start out a new year with a new investigation. One of the more pressing spots in the house currently seems to be the corner of my bedroom upstairs where the dog (at least in the past year) is known to occasionally bark for no reason at all. I will remind you that I have a dog that rarely barks. Loud noises do not bother him. He is just not easily upset by things. I decided to do this video after the other night when he was again barking, and the hair on the back of his neck was raised up.
Take a look and see what you think.
The second interesting occurrence that has happened so far this year, and this is is only the 6th of January, is told in a photo from another bedroom upstairs. In front of a laptop I keep there to run a camera, is a doll that I had bought from a woman who did not want it in her house. Her grandmother had played with is as a child, so I did think it was odd that she would not want to keep it, but slowly I am understanding why... From time to time I find that, though I close up the laptop at night, I will find it open in the morning. At first I thought I was forgetting to close it, but then I started to pay more attention to it, and sure enough, it does re-open seemingly by itself, at times.
31 August 2013:
Saturday morning I had gotten up, came downstairs, and I usually have enough coffee left over from the previous day to warm up one cup as I am waiting for the coffee maker to make a fresh batch. So I set my coffee cup in the microwave to warm it up. I then went into the living room to turn off the window lights, and when I came back into the kitchen I find a second empty coffee cup sitting next to the microwave...Mine was inside where I had put it???
08 August 2013:
This incident happened on the same day as the previous photo, and I was still sitting at the computer about 2 feet away when I heard the red pillow fall. Wesley usually does that when he is on the loveseat, but about 15 minutes latter Wesley came into the room, jumped onto the love seat, and knocked off the pillow...I hadn't picked the pillow up from the first time I had heard it fall...
While sitting at my computer this candle dish sitting on a bookshelf directly behind me flipped over and fell 5 feet without breaking, but spilling all of it's contents. all over the floor.
Since these two incidents are a little more active than the norm I feel that I should again point out that I do not make these happenings up. They are not fake. I only report them as they are...as they happen.
10 July 2013:
I heard a loud bang in the house? The dog ran in from the living room. Don't know what it was. Someone on the facebook page mentioned that a loud sound such as that signifies that a spirit has entered the house. That's funny because latter that night when the dog and I were in my upstairs bedroom he suddenly sits up on the bed and begins to bark at nothing at all.
09 June 2013:
Just felt & heard 2 knocks under my feet coming from the basement room below.
26 May 2013:
Today I was watching the news, and Wesley wanted to go outside, so out we went. When I came back in I noticed there was no sound coming from the television, but a commercial was on, so I thought it was just in the commercial. When the news came back on there was still no sound. I picked up the remote, and it seems that the T.V. had muted itself. I had to turn the mute button off to get the sound to resume. Weird... 05 May 2013: I heard what sounded like a young child running across the floor in the room above me. I was sitting in the living room, and it would have been in the bedroom directly above me. I went up, but found nothing.
28 September 2012:
Two days ago while I was sitting at the computer in the library downstairs I heard "knock, knock, knock, knock...". So I got up to answer the door. On my way out of the room I notice Wesley, who is at the entrance to the room has not heard the knocking, and I'm thinking "Why didn't they ring the doorbell, or knock on the door?" My outer door is glass, and the sound I heard was from knocking on the wall.By the time I got to the door and saw no one was there, I realized that the sound was from knocking on the wall, or from knocking on the floor from upstairs.
20 September 2012:
I received the Spirit Box a few weeks ago, and have played with it a few times, but not for very long as I have been to busy to dedicate much time to it. It works by scanning very quickly through radio stations, so what you hear is sound bits of each station as it goes through...too fast for an entire word, if they are talking. Yesterday I was cooking in the kitchen (I usually just microwave something since that's faster), and since I was going to be there for a while I turned on the Spirit Box, As it's going through it's scan I hear a little kid say "Daddy". I thought that was kind of odd, but I wasn't going to say anything about it, because I thought I might have just imagined it. A few minutes pass by when the same little kid voice says "Daddy" again.

Just a little strange: I have an under the cabinet light that decided to work when it wanted to. Meaning that you would switch it on, and eventually it would come on. I grew tired of that so yesterday I unplugged it to take it down and see if I could fix it. While taking it down it flashed light at me, mind you I had unplugged it. when I got it down I plugged it in, and it worked. I kept switching it off and on, and it still worked, so I put it back up. Got home last night and it worked great...today were back to not so great. On a side note I had all of the downstairs newly rewired when I bought the house.

Yesterday I opened the closet door in the library, and the dog stood in the doorway to the room growling. I got my EMF detector out, but it didn't really register anything abnormal. I've now had two Boston Terriers, and they are not really growlers, in fact they hardly even bark.

I'm in the living room about 2:20 p.m., and the phone rings, but it's the land line that I had disconnected over a year ago. I answer it, and a girl ask if this were the local school district? I say no, and she hung up. I then call from that phone to where I work and ask if they noticed the number that I am calling from. The guy said he saw the first 3 numbers (local), and the name of the town was the ID. I check the phone again and there's no dial tone. Why did I leave it plugged in, you ask? It's a reproduction hand crank phone that hangs on the wall in the kitchen. After it was disconnected I just left it as it was. By the way...the first day of school was the day before.

Adjacent to my bedroom is another bedroom who's double doors I keep locked at night. I was awaken this morning by a knock on those doors.
10 January 2012:
Two nights ago while making dinner I heard a dog bark in the house...and again the following night also while making dinner, but it wasn't my dog. Each night it barked just once. It was the sound of a larger dog.
10 November 2011:
Just heard the sound of glass breaking, and I can't find the broken glass. I've looked upstairs, downstairs, in the basement, checked all the windows, and every corner 3 times, and the broken glass eludes me. I even went outside...no broken glass anywhere.
19 October 2011:
I was awaken last night by 4 faint rapping sounds (knock, knock, knock, knock). It sounded like it came from the door that leads to the stairs, it was closed. I listened, but heard no more.
11 September 2011:
I came downstairs this morning and found the coffee pot had been turned on....again. Some of you might remember this happening before. So did I, so I looked it up, and it was last year on Sept 2nd that I had posted this same thing occurring. The difference is now I have a different coffee pot, You still have to turn it on by pushing the switch (no timer). I found it interesting that it was almost exactly a year later.

Just wanted to mention a couple of things that happened yesterday. I'm not passing judgement on them, but still I wanted to put them into the record. First, early yesterday morning (5:30 a.m.) both the dog and I were awaken by what sounded like something falling in the stairway (I say there because the sound seemed to echo). I listened, and didn't hear anything else so I went to the hallway and turned on the light to the stairway )in case someone were breaking in), turned it back off, and went back to bed. When I got up I looked around the stairs, and the rest of the house thinking I would find something that had fallen, but I didn't.
Second: I have a bathroom off the kitchen, and when I leave for work I shut the door because Wesley likes to grab the towels and chew on them. Now he can reach up, turn the knob, and go in, but it's usually works on the "Out of site, out of mind" theory. Last night I got home from work, and saw a towel on the kitchen floor, so I knew he had been in the bathroom, but when I looked at the bathroom door it was shut. As I said, he can open the door (it opens in), but I really don't know how he would be able to pull the door shut?
29 October 2010:
A story for the Eve of Halloween Eve. I hat gotten home after work last night it was about 10:30, and I went upstairs to turn down the bed. After that the dog and I usually eat. As I got to the top of the stairs I caught a glimpse of the bottom of a dark shadow going into the last bedroom on the right. I say "Dark" because it was blacker than a shadow would be. I only saw the bottom because I was looking at the floor coming up the stairs. I didn't see feet, just a dark shape moving into the room. I went into my bedroom to get my digital voice recorder, but it was having problems so that was no help.
20 October 2010:
The night before last I had just gotten home from work and saw that Wesley (who had previously chewed through a camera wire), had pulled apart the splice where I had once again fixed the camera. While fixing it I had the cameras up on the computer screen so I could adjust a camera, and had come into the library (where the computer was) to see if I had the angle right. When I looked at the screen I saw a figure entering the same room that I had just come in to. I thought it was me, and the camera was delayed (even though they are in real time). So I tried it 4 more times, and did not see it again. So, was it me, or someone following me...a very creepy thought.
28 September 2010:
At about 2:30 p.m. I had just let the dog out, and came back in to get the bird seed for the birds, and I heard a Lady talking. I had no radio or T.V. on, and it stopped when I got into the back door. It didn't come from outside. It sounded close enough to be from across the room, or in the very next room. I couldn't make out what was said.
2 September 2010:
Two mornings in a row I found the coffee pot had turned on before I had made any coffee... You have to press the button down for it to come on. It's not equipped with a timer. It's kind of like when the fan turned off. The first time it could have by some chance been me, but the next morning??? As I said I had not even got the coffee ready.
20 July 2010:
During The Night... Upstairs, before I go to sleep I always turn on the overhead fan, and an oscillating fan off to the side of the bed. Last night I went to sleep about midnight, then woke up at at around 1:30. I decided to go to the bathroom, but before I did I turned on the T.V. When I came back into the room the fan was off. I thought I had forgotten to turn if on ...so I did. It has 3 levels, Hi, Medium, and Low. Meaning, I always turn it 3 times to get to low. Which I did, and went back to bed. When I got up at 6:00 this morning I went over to turn the fan off, and it was already off. I turned the knob to see if it had just stopped working, but it came on. It had been turned all the way over into the off position.
15 July 2010:
The other night Wesley (my Boston Terrier) was on the bed upstairs and I noticed he was looking at the opposite side of the room. There is a couch that sits there. His eyes were moving around as if to look at something, but there was nothing there. I sat on the bed in front of him, and he looked around me. I waved my hand in front of him, and he still looked at the couch??? Eventually we went downstairs...it was time to eat.
On a side note: This morning, Wesley's right eye was shut. I'm not sure what it is, but when I got him they sent him home with eye medicine. I assume it's allergy related. So when it happens I just put the stuff in his eye. At the same time I notice a little pain in my right eye. When I looked in the mirror one side of the eye was bloody. Probably from a scratch, but it was just weird we both had it on the same morning...in the same eye.
18 May 2010:
I have posted below 2 pictures of something that happened this morning when I was out of the house. It is of a candle that sits in a metal pedestal on the coffee table in the living room. In the first picture is how it normally sits, and the second picture is of how I found it when I came home. I know that it wasn't the dog because I close the pocket door to the room when I leave. I have learned that he is still too young to be trusted with the antique things. If you notice it looks as if the candle was picked up, the base placed on the floor, and the candle set back down on the table...minus the base.
While I was on the couch watching T.V.it shut off by it self. Just to explain how odd this was. The power in the house didn't shut off nor did I hit the remote by accident...Wesley ate the remote some months ago, and when I want to turn the T.V. off I have to do it the old fashioned way...walk over to it and turn it off by hand.
