The following report was sent into our website by Amanda on Aug 24, 2014:
“Second story of a haunted house that I lived in…
The house that my mother and step-father rent has had interesting events occur since they moved into the house nearly 20 years ago.
The spirit at this house has never been malicious, but is certainly playful. It often liked to move things in the house, especially if any renovations or re-decorating was done. Perhaps it didn’t like change.
I remember multiple times when it would “move” my mom’s glasses from the window sill, and we would turn the house upside-down looking for them, and they would magically “appear” again on the sill hours later.
It also had an affinity for a daughter’s pride ring I had, and would regularly move it from my dresser for periods of time. Eventually, it was “moved” permanently, and was never found again.
Our dogs could always tell when it was around. We would be sitting in the living room, and they would stare at the back door, upper corner in the living room, or at the end of the hall at the linen closet and just growl. It was always in one of these three places, and typically in the evening. We could never see anything, but just knew it was the resident ghost.
A few times too, when my sister was a baby, we would hear her laughing in her crib, even when there was no one in the room with her.
For some reason, and I can’t explain it, but I always thought of the ghost as a boy in his youth – perhaps aged 10 to 13. Not sure why, but it just seemed to fit.”
