Now that was weird!

Ghost Cat

I’m not sure if I mentioned it here or not, but a while ago I was lying in bed and thought I caught a glimpse of a cat going into my closet.  My own cat, Sage,  was either on the bed or on the other side of the room. It spooked me a for a bit, but I soon forgot about it – until recently.

The night before last Sage started acting weird and crying like she wanted something. I checked that she had food and water and even gave her a little drink of milk and a taste of her kitty greens. Nothing I did seemed to satisfy her. Finally in frustration, I stood up and said “Show me.”

She trotted across the living room and into the bedroom, stopping periodically to look behind her to make sure I was following. She went into the bedroom and crawled into the closet. This closet has a curtain, which I pulled back to see what she was doing.

It also has several boxes, folded clothes and extra blankets on the floor. She went to the blanket and began to crawl under it while looking back at me and crying. I know I should have looked under the blanket, but I did’t. I just called her out and left the room. It was nighttime and the closet was dark and I simply didn’t have the courage to look under the blanket or move the boxes to see what was there. I thought maybe she was showing me her hiding place – at least that’s what I told myself.

It wasn’t until the next day that I remembered seeing the “ghost cat” go in the closet. Now, I’m wondering if the two events are connected and what I might have discovered if I’d explored the closet.  Sage was perfectly normal the next day and has been since.

Bigfoot sighting in Turner, Maine

TURNER, MAINE Bigfoot Sighting – Video Evidence of Bigfoot

Just when I was beginning to wonder why the mysterious Bigfoot had an aversion to the beautiful state of Maine, up pops video evidence that he is alive and well in Turner, Maine. At least, that is how it seems.

Bigfoot researcher Bill Brock has posted videos captured by a father and son team in Turner, Maine that certainly look like Bigfoot. The only part of the videoed interview that bothers me is the Bigfoot tracks in the snow. To the untrained eye (mine) the footprints look odd. The toes are straight across and the shape of the foot does not seem to fit with previous Bigfoot prints. Perhaps it is an effect of the snow or some other condition.

Check out Bigfoot Caught on Video in Turner, Maine for more information and links to three videos.

I’d love to hear what you think about this video evidence!

Amazing photo – Is it evidence of Dopplegangers or Reincarnation?

IMG_20150101_125608I received these pictures today from a fan who left a message on my post about Doppelgangers. The picture on the right is a drawing of Mary Shelton (1510-1570/71). The photo on the left is one of her descendants nearly 500 years later.

The young lady’s mom says she never believed in Doppelgangers until she saw these two pictures side-by-side.

I’ll be honest, I’m not sure what to think. There is an uncanny resemblance between the two. Could it be mere coincidence? A case of reincarnation?

We’d love to hear what you think.


Is something trying to get my attention?


Apples on treeThere have been a couple of slightly unusual events in our home recently. Nothing earth-shattering, just enough to make you scratch your head and wonder. The first occurred when I was sleeping. I hadn’t been feeling well and laid down to read and dozed off. I awoke to ‘someone’ repeatedly saying what sounded like “Pan Chu” into my ear. I have no idea if “Pan Chu” is significant in anyway. It doesn’t mean anything to me.

The second occurred when I walked into the dining room near the tree. One of the red apples suddenly came tumbling down and rolled across the floor for no reason. I assumed the hook worked its way free of the branch and didn’t think much of it – until last night while hubby and I were watching TV and we suddenly heard what sounded like something hitting one of the apples before it came tumbling off the tree.

The cat was in the other room, the dog was sleeping and we were both a good 20 feet from the tree. I don’t know what made the apple fall, and I wouldn’t have given it much thought if it weren’t for the distinctive sound that someone or something hit the apple before it fell from the tree.

Is someone or something trying to get our attention? I really don’t know, but it does seem a little odd. For now, I’ll assume they were normal occurrences, but I will keep my eyes and ears open for anything out of the ordinary.

Weird sounds in wall are spooking me…

Not my actual house!


We’ve all heard the eerie stories of hauntings where the homeowners hear weird scratching and growling in the walls of the home. If you are anything like me, the thought probably creeps you out a bit.

I have some weird noises going on and I sincerely hope someone can give me a logical explanation for them.  It begins with scratching in the wall that under normal circumstances I would attribute to a mouse. I live in a old house and they often sneak in for the winter. I also have a cat that is very good mouser and typically keeps them under control. However, I’m willing to accept that part of what I’m hearing is a mouse that she hasn’t found yet. But – there is something weird about the sounds.

When I hear the scratching sounds, which can last for 20 minute or so at night, I also hear a weird buzzing sound in the wall. When I first heard it, I thought it was a big old fly or bee around the window frame buzzing to get out, but it’s not.  I don’t know how else to describe the sound other than a buzzing, fluttering sound. Sometimes it is quite loud. It has been happening off an on for months, maybe even years.

I didn’t think much of it during the summer. I just figured it was some flying insect trapped and trying to escape – but when it continued and the temps dropped below zero, I knew it couldn’t be any kind of bug. I also knew it would be highly unlikely that I would only hear it when I heard the scratching. It moves to different locations in the wall and to the opposite wall.

There are no electrical wires or plumbing in that location. Both walls are outside walls. The attic is above the room.  I never hear the buzzing without also hearing the scratching sounds.

So now it’s your turn. Please debunk these weird sounds for me!

What are black eyed children?

black eyed children

I just published an article on Examiner about Black Eyed Children after reading a rather tongue-in-cheek post by Grant Wilson warning fans to beware of them. Some of the information in the article comes from David Weatherly, author of Black Eyed Children. I decided to check it out on Amazon and discovered the book is currently selling for $83.37. That, of course, dashed my thoughts about buying the book.

Fortunately, you can buy the book on Leprechaun Press for $20, so I thought I’d pass that on to you. I don’t make any profit from either place and just wanted to let you know in case you are interested in buying the book.

I found the topic intriguing and a little spooky.  These kids have solid black eyes, speak in a monotone and insist on being let into your home or vehicle. Those who have encountered them claim to feel threatened, but often can’t explain why. No one really knows who or what they are, but Weatherly shares his theories.

The article includes a video of David Weatherly talking about his research concerning black eyed kids. The article and video are a great source for basic information if you want to learn more.

I’d love to hear from anyone who has encountered these eerie kids or who knows someone who has.

Was that really my imagination or was it paranormal?


Okay, so I’ve been experiencing a few peculiar things lately that have me scratching my head this morning.

  • First, a week or so ago, I crawled in bed to read. My cat was curled up beside me when I suddenly heard what sounded like fabric rustling. The cat and I both looked to the bottom of the bed and I got a glimpse of something white as it appeared to slide off the bed. I assumed I had left an article of clothing on the foot of the bed. As I continued to read, I started thinking about it and couldn’t think of anything white or light colored that I had left on the bed. I got up and checked and there was nothing on the floor around the bed.  The cat and I chose to go back to reading and pretend it never happened.
  • A few days ago, when I was getting a shirt out of my closet, I saw a white shirt slip from a hanger and fall. I tried to catch it only to discover there was no fallen shirt. I checked the bottom of the closet and the floor in the bedroom. Nothing. Again, I chalked it up to my imagination.
  • This morning the TV is suddenly changing channels on its own. We’ve had Direct TV for 10 years or more and I have never seen this happen. It didn’t just suddenly change to a new channel, it went through several channels and stopped on each until the ‘show’ came on and then went to another. It finally settled on a channel with an infomercial.

I’m not sure if these events are related. The first two could certainly be my imagination – well, mine and the cat’s – but the TV surfing channels on its own wasn’t my imagination. I’m not sure if there is a logical explanation for it or not. It’s unlikely that a neighboring remote triggered it. I only have two neighbors in range and this happened before anyone else was up in the morning.

I’m not ready to call any of this paranormal, but it is beginning to make me wonder.
