My wife doesn't disapprove of me watching haunting shows occasionally, she probably believes in some sort of afterlife quite more than I do. She has
had much more loss in her life then I have. I agree, either something is trying to tell me to pay more attention to her, or there is an animal running
around. However, the only animal running around, barely, is my 19 year old cat, who can barely go up stairs, let alone get onto a table. There are
no rats (alive) in this house for sure. Her birthday is this weekend too. Maybe her late dad was trying to wish her a happy birthday. There is
nothing on, or around that table with enough mass to knock over that candle. It happened with a fairly loud "thunk", while she was working in the
room. No animals present. This is why I think it is a paranormal occurrence. I cannot think of a physical reason for that candle to have toppled.
Believe me, I think a lot, and have run through hundreds of possible physical reasons. Unless my wife "dreamed" it up, it has to be some external
force. Candles like that don't "walk" on their own. The metal plate is concave and should keep the candle from drifting towards the edges with
thermal changes, or barometric changes. I am going to carefully monitor the position of the candle on the plate to see if it has a drift tendency for
some physical reason.
We will be enjoying this birthday weekend together, and I will continue to keep my senses aware for other signs, if any.
"Other things" refers to the chain of events after the passing of my friend and his family. It's all detailed in a thread I started around May
Thanks for taking the time to participate in my curiosity.
