Hello, all! Are you finding it hard to say goodbye to October? I am. I still have a ton of things to do here, but I've found some time to play around with one of my photos from a couple of years ago. I posted a similar photo of the old house above in a post titled "Strange Happenings." That post (for those of you who may not have seen it) is about some strange happenings that occurred in this house during the past few years. If interested, you can read about it here.
Since it is Halloween, I thought it might be a good time to share a few more strange happenings. But, this time, where my daughter works. As for here at home, the only strange happenings to report are a sensation of someone sitting down at the foot of the bed when I go to bed. My daughter says she's felt the same sensation in her room on her bed.
My daughter is the director of an early learning facility that takes in children from 6 weeks to age 12. The facility has been added onto a few times, but it is all on one level. Many, if not most, of the strange things that have occurred are during the month of October.
In Oct. 2009, the intercom came on in her office when she was working by herself one weekend and it sounded like a whisper. Looking for the source, she walked into the room where another intercom was and the light that shows it is being used was lit up green. It only lights up when it is being pushed. No one was pushing it. Being a little spooked, she unplugged the intercom and went back to her office to gather her things to leave. There, she found in an alcove, a light was on that had never been on before. Ever. She never turns that particular light on.
This October, several strange things have happened. The cook was in the kitchen and heard a male voice say hello. She turned around and no one was there. Another time, my daughter turned out the lights at the end of the day in her section of the building. Teachers were straightening up and preparing to leave in another section. After the lights were all turned out and they left and got to their cars, they noticed the lights came back on where they had been. They went back inside and turned out the lights and looked in the infant room and saw that a rocking swing was rocking at high speed.
Another day, the assistant director felt a presence and saw a male figure standing in her peripheral vision. This male figure was also observed walking by a door with a glass window. These sightings haven't yielded a real live male person, only a brief glimpse of what appears to be someone.
There are others, but in order to not write a book, I'll just share one more and one of the weirdest. Just last week, my daughter and her assistant were talking at lunch about the strange happenings there at work and my daughter shared some of the things we've had happen here at home. The assistant began talking about her children bringing home a Ou..a (sorry, I won't spell it out...hope you know what I mean) Board and that she hadn't heard anything good about them and told them to get rid of it. When she began talking about the board, my daughter looked at her can of soda and it had started spewing foam at the top! My daughter said that she asked her assistant to stop talking about the O. Board and when she did, the foaming/spewing stopped. They both were astonished by what happened since the can had been opened a while and hadn't been shaken.
How or why these strange things have happened is a mystery. But they have really happened. I am still wondering how the makeup was dotted in a perfect row on the floor behind me that I told about in a previous post here. How about you? Any mysterious goings on at your house? As for me, right now I'm hearing Elvis singing "All Shook Up".
Until next time...
