If you can figure out the name, you'll know what it's about. Fortunately, I'm literate. I'm also funny on occasion. Just beware of the flying PMS.

Got Ghosts?

I was cruising the TV last night, trying to chill out a little, when I came across a program called Ghost Hunters. It was actually pretty good. The premise of the show is that a team of people go into a reportedly haunted place and try to de-bunk it by using high tech equipment to see what they come across, if anything. Most of the time they don't find anything of consequence. Sometimes events are explained naturally, but every once in a while something really weird gets caught on tape or by Electronic Voice recorder.

I remember one time, I was about 12 years old, and was reading a book in the living room at our old house. I finished the book and when I closed the cover and looked up I saw something run and hide behind the chair. I was sure it was Nukie, because that was the kind of stuff we used to do to each other, so I went behind the chair to sneak up on him. When I did, the figure ran behind the couch - Nukie was skinny enough to do this back then- so I followed, too. When I did that, the figure ran out the room, so I followed too. I saw the figure run into my bedroom, so I was sure I had Nukie trapped, and figured when I caught him I would clobber him!

I swung around the doorframe - and standing in my room was a man dressed in knickers and a stripped black and white shirt, with a red scarf, like a bandana around his neck and a blue flat cap with brim on his head. I froze. The man smiled at me and put his hand up and waved and then disappeared. I ran like hell out of the house.

So anyone got any ghost stories??

Witnessed an exorcism...person sounded like a dog talking to ya...the spirit/demon switched between several different languages unknown to the person possessed...couple of things levitated and flung around. The whole thing freaked me out so much I was scared to be alone for about a month.

You seen a midget French Mime?

LOL...I don't know, man. It was sure weird though. Actually he looked like a sailor...maybe French. Young, like about 20 or so. I was freaked enough, but I thought he was real, and then when he disappeared I almost shit my pants. I couldn't get out of there fast enough. Never saw it/him again though. Must have "sailed on by" or something. What's that phantom ship? Ship of Fools?? Oh, no that's permanently docked in Washington, D.C.

Chuckster! Man that is one scary story. You know, the Vatican has reported that the incidence of Satanic activity in Italy has gotten so bad, that they are teaching new Priests how to do exorcisms again. Exorcism 101. There was a whole article on it in one of the local Catholic newspapers. Apparently it's a huge issue and the old Priests are the only ones with any experience in that arena - because it wasn't politically correct to say that Satan existed, so exorcisms fell out of favor...and now the little devils are running all over town...(bad joke, I know.)

Have I ever seen a ghost? No. But I do have a story for ya....

On August 12th, 1990 I fell asleep on my livingroom floor watching tv. When I woke up honey was sitting on the couch freaking the fuck out. When I asked him what was wrong with him he said he saw my nephew kneeling on the floor beside me rubbing his hand over my stomach, he was wearing brown pants and his cowboy shirt, he could see him as clear as day....and my nephew kept rubbing my tummy and he ran his fingers through my hair and that's when I woke up. Two days later on the 14th I took a pregnancy test and sure as shit I was pregnant with my son. I've not ever seen my nephew, but my neice [his sister] after the accident came to live with me while my sister was still in the hospital and I useta rock her with her on my stomach [she was a year old] and she'd sit up and laugh and point in the dark and twist and turn to look behind the rocker and she'd laugh, and throw her head in my shoulder like she was playing peek a boo. I think she was playing with Rusty, my nephew. She's almost 16 now....she says she still talks to him and just the other day she told me something I never knew-she told me Rusty went to Hardee's the day he died. I asked her how she knew that and she said Rusty told her. I asked her mom on Monday and she said she didn't ever remember telling Tabetha that. It gives me a small amount of peace knowing he's close by.


I laughed when you said Nukie was skinny enough to do this back then...i dont know that just made me laugh out loud.

The house I live in now is haunted the original part of the house was built in 1721. We've seen soldiers from the revolutionary and civil war, children, an old man with a cane, a housemaid, a woman in a pink dress -not to mention just the other freaky things you hear and see. You just get used to it believe it or not. I've had quite a few disbelievers come to stay at the house that go away

Got aone for ya Hammy. This is a real-life thing that happened to me and a friend back in '97.

In August of 1997, my friend Larry and I got together on a Wednesday afternoon for a game of tennis. We were driving through North Cambridge, Massachusetts and didn't know where the nearest tennis courts were. I pulled up to a cop on a side-street off Route 2 and asked him where the nearest tennis courts were. Although neither of us said anything at the time, we both thought there was something weird about the cop. I'm not sure if it was the way he was dressed or his attitude. He seemed to have an interest in my car. In any case, he gave us clear directions to tennis courts about two blocks away. We followed his instructions, turned right into a driveway and, sure enough, there were three tennis courts right in front of us. We both looked at the courts very intently to see if any courts were available. They were all occupied. It struck us both as odd that all the players were dressed in white. We both took notice of a very attractive young lady in the right court wearing a short, white tennis dress. She was preparing to address the serve. We decided to wait for a court to come free and I pulled my car into a parking area immediately on my right. Larry got out of the car first then said, "Where did the tennis courts go?" I got out of the car and noticed we were alone. "They were right there!" I said. The tennis courts, the players and everything we were looking at were gone! Instead there was a building in front of us that was not visible when we pulled in. Strangely, neither of us was afraid, though we both agreed that what we just experienced was "too weird". We got back in the car and drove off to play tennis elsewhere. Later I did some research into the area. I found out there were tennis courts there -- but they were torn down in 1954!

Did we "travel back in time"? Did we see "ghosts"? Larry seems to think we viewed a scene from the 1920's. Also, I have to wonder -- did they see us?

That's weird, although I could imagine Nukie dressing like that. Oh - and have a look here, Hammy.

I don't have a ghost story. Never saw one. I don't think I'd like to either, but Mrs Nukie saw one and I was in the room at the time, there was a candle lit and it started getting really long and dancing, I said to her that that means that there is a spirit around. She turned and saw a little boy dressed in some weird outfit and described him. I was there and didn't see a thing.
