    It is as believable as any other ghost story, but the funny thing about this one is that it has ended in a lawsuit.

    It seems to me that the courts have sided with paranormal claims from time to time. I'm not sure how this stands at the moment, but I think that legally speaking, some forms of paranormal acitivity exist.

    Really though, I assumed that it was intentional since the title and the post have the same error.

    That's what I thought, but I couldn't see what the point was. Ok, I am only half crazy. :tongue2: (you missed an H) :biggrin: But if you fix it, I'll really sound nutty.

    It's like you're aware of their presence, but you can't see or hear them?

    I've got a couple of ghost stories (albeit second hand ones) if anyone is interested.

    The first one is one my parents told me. They moved into a house when they had just got married. It was pretty new, but stood on the site of a couple of older terraced houses that had been knocked down. Their next door neighbours told them of the ghosts that supposadly haunted the garden. They were two old women, dressed in old fasioned clothing who would walk around with their arms linked. They had been seen walking through gaps so narrow you wouldn't believe one person could fit down (like where a car was parked very close to the house). The spooky part is, my grandmother used to live in the same row of houses when she was young (and the old houses still standing), and when she was told the story, she said the description exactly matched that of the two old women that lived in the old house back when she lived there.

    The second is one a friend told me. She lives in an old railway cottage, a little over 150 years old. Her parents tell her that when she was really young, and in her room at night, she used to have conversations with a little boy called Bobby who couldn't walk and had to drag himself across the floor (though she doesn't remember this) A bit of research into the house's history revealed that a young boy called Bobby used to live there, and contracted polio, which can cripple people like she described. When she was a lot older, and sharing the room with her little brother, one night he sat up and told her "There's a boy dragging himself along the floor!" and to her knowledge he'd never even been told about 'Bobby'

    I wouldn't mind, but spending a few hours prowling around the garden of a stranger's house is a pretty good way of getting myself arrested (espescially because the house is one the police rent to new recruits they are training.)
