BOO Who? What the .....

Check out this website to see what GHOSTING is really about.
Ok, I was GHOSTED by Lisa at Laughing Orca Ranch and I am finally going to post my scary story. Which also happens to be a true story. Now before I start let me just say that I have studied paranormal stuff for years and am a great fan of horror stories and films. However I do not believe in ghosts and hauntings. Maybe I better say I did not....
A few years ago I was babysitting for a relative who had to go for her postnatal check-up. A few years previously her and her husband had bought an old farmhouse and they and other relatives had experienced strange happenings in this house and I being the skeptic that I am, made fun of their experiences.
Well the baby was asleep and I was keeping myself entertained by playing computer games. I got up to get a drink of water and was looking out across the road through the kitchen window, when all of a sudden I heard the back storm door open and close. Then I heard an irate elderly male voice say, " What the Hell? They never lock the back door." And then an elderly woman's voice shushing him.
I turned around and looked out the big picture window towards the back of the house but couldn't see anyone, so I went to the back door and opened it. There was nobody there. So I ran back inside and looked out the kitchen window at the driveway, no car and nobody. I went to the front door, no one in sight and the road in both directions was empty.
Now a chill went down my spine. The house was completely quiet. I had been playing the computer games with the sound turned off. I would have heard a car if one would have pulled into or out of the driveway.
Later when my relative returned and I told her of my experience she only said, "See....Welcome to the club."
I have no explanation for what I had heard. And I KNOW that I heard it.
Now I have to "GHOST" someone else to tell a spooky story or tale or post a spooky photo so I choose:
Please include the photo/link at the top of this post.

I just don't know if i want to go to this site...what's going to happen if I do?? Is something going to jump out of the screen at me? Is some hideous picture of linda blair in full exocist possession going to lunge at me (I couldn't take it, i tell ya!)??
What will prevail? My fear or my courage?...
I'll get back to you on this... :-)

Oh dear. I've led such a tame and horror free life, I don't even know what I would pull out for this. Now, if you wanted a story about giant spiders on the ceiling of my hotel room in Hungary, *this* I could tell you, but, sadly, it's no ghost story.
Therefore, I must defer to my pals, Maude and Agnes, to make up for my lack of ghostly tales. :-) :-)
