More Details (I wrote this in December):
In November my wife and I moved to the mountains of Southern California. We are newly minted empty nesters (the kids visit often) and are renting a
three bedroom, two bath, two story house built in the early seventies and situated on a double lot amongst the Jeffery and Ponderosa Pine at about
7500 feet in elevation.
It is a very nice setting and we like living in the mountains more than we expected, excepting a feature of our house that was not mentioned in the
lease agreement: one is never alone in this house. We didn’t notice anything unusual initially. However, when we first took possession of the
property, it struck me as odd that the former tenants had left a large (approx. 1 ft.) crucifix draped with a rosary and inscribed with a catholic
prayer hanging above the main entry door.
As the days passed after our moving in my wife, who has always been especially sensitive, thought she saw a man or just the shadow of a man on the
stairs several times. I had no experiences until one night we both heard a lot of inexplicable banging noises in the house. Soon after, while
seemingly alone in the house, I heard my name called out plain as day from an empty room.
Weird little things kept happening and I took to sleeping with the light on, which is normally not my preference. Then about two weeks after moving in
one of my adult sons came for a visit. We had said nothing to him or anyone else about our suspicions regarding our new mountain rental home, but on
his first night at the new house he was awakened by something or someone leaning over him loudly rubbing the window above the bed he was sleeping in.
He said it sounded like a fleshy palm squeaking as it was being forcefully dragged back and forth across the _
The next day my son began taking pictures around the house to see if he could capture anything unusual. The pictures I have posted are just a small
sampling of the truly bizarre images he managed to take with his Samsung smart phone and that I have taken with my Olympus Camedia digital camera. I
fear my wife and I are living at Ghost Central.
My wife and I tried to practice a live and let live (or maybe live and let die) philosophy regarding the unwanted visitors in our house for some time.
We considered the manifestations just part of the continuum, and god's admirable attempt to stuff his universe to the brim with as much life on as
many levels as possible. We had lived in two haunted houses previously and weren't inclined to be especially freaked out by it. That is until my wife
was grabbed by the shoulders and violently shaken while alone in the master bedroom.
At that point, we felt we needed assistance and called in a team of well-known paranormal investigators. They were able to collect new evidence and
confirm the reality and severity of the haunting. However, they attempted and were completely unsuccessful in clearing the house. Actually, things
have gotten much worse since they were here.
Thankfully, we are moving October 1.
