Well, I haven't updated in awhile. There have been a few things happen over this past year, but not much to talk about. Two instances of footsteps
(one running) upstairs heard from the downstairs area. On the running incident Fred, our Great Dane, heard it at the same time as myself and stood up
and stared at the ceiling underneath the bedroom that used to be my daughter's. (Both times the sound was from that room.)
Then, back about 4 months ago we had an episode where Springer and I were discussing something and all of a sudden Fred froze in place just inside the
opening to the kitchen. He was staring at the corner of the kitchen where the double ovens are, so there is nothing to see there but...a corner and
double ovens. He starts barking his big dog bark (which he doesn't do unless someone is approaching the front door) and growling a mean-dog growl.
He was transfixed. We stopped talking and I walked over by him and put my hand on his back and it didn't phase him. He just kept growling and
barking at the corner. I walked over there to the corner and after I did, he stopped growling and walked over with me and things were fine.
Then last weekend I had a girlfriend come stay here because she was having some husband problems. She stayed Saturday night and then Sunday she all
of a sudden makes up an excuse why she is going to stay somewhere else. Taking her earnestly I helped her carry her bags out (I had her in my
daughter's old bedroom). As we were carrying the last bag out and she was saying good-bye she leaned forward and whispered "and I've put the throw
pillows on the bed three times and come back in the room to find them thrown across the room on the floor." I told her I was sorry something had
Springer is virtually deaf, so he watches TV with headphones on and the TV sound down (because I don't watch TV much). He was watching a football
game and two times in about a 30 to 45 minute span he jumps up and says, "yes?" And I responded "I didn't say anything." (I'm in here on the
computer watching a movie with my headphones on.) The first time he heard MY voice say a sentence that he couldn't make out, but ended clearly with
"Sweetheart", which is what I call him. The second time it was MY voice clearly calling his first name.
So, I thought I'd share these latest events. Will update if anything else happens.
