Ghosts

At one time I never believed in ghosts......

Now I am not so sure as we have one in our house........

If we leave any sweet stuff about, cakes, chocolate and such like it seems to disappear......

Not all at once of course, it's clearly crafty that way, just takes a bit at a time hoping we do not notice....

Clearly not on a diet as lettuce, fruit and similar stuff is never touched.....

Only the two of us in the house and the wife swears she knows nothing about it....

very odd.

If it's not yourself or your wife, then evidenty it must be someone else, you could always leave laxative chocolate to help 'flush' out the culprit. But that's assuming ghosts need to toilet of course.  Cheesy

@gleneagles 

I'm rather puzzled by your ghosts digestive system. Wink

Seriously though it's all nonsense, and if cakes and such went missing I'd put down a couple of mouse traps and not put it down to things that go bump in the night!

Re: Ghosts

My brother and sister-in-law swear that the ghost of my dad pops into the kitchen turning the oven knob up/down or moving cups, etc. and walks around upstairs making a clatter.

 

Funny how it never happens when me and SWMBO are there. Admittedly there are creaks and other noises but nothing that can't be put down to central heating/hot water.

 

Being an alcoholic I'm quite sure my s-i-l sees many spirits during the nightCheesy

Re: Ghosts

I've seen a few weird things that could have been "ghosts", whatever they are, but I've never known any that noshed cake.

Somebody sleep walking?

Terraced house with access from other houses through the roof space?

Somebody living up there? (It's happened before)

Somebody has a key who shouldn't have one?

Somebody has a key who should have one, but is letting themselves in and mooching around?

I'd be tempted to get a motion activated video cam if it keeps happening.

Re: Ghosts

Surely you must remember the "There's a Humphrey about" commercials from the 1970s?

Re: Ghosts

When these so called ghost cross over from the spiritual to the physical that's when things start to get really weird.

A very good friend of ours who lived in an old house in south Wales, swears that she would find old coins around the house - usually on one of the windowsills, and ones that dated back from the seventeenth to eighteenth century - she even showed us a couple of them. No crackpot either, and she held down a very professional job.

So either one of two things, she was either a very good and very convincing liar, or....

Well given that the living exists and the dead don't....
