My Families Wednesday Night Tradition

You all know by now, I am interested in a variety of things, especially strange things. On Wednesday nights at my house we have a tradition that we try to keep in between ball practices, school functions, work, and all the other crazy things my family is involved in, this tradition is watching new episodes of 'Ghost Hunters' on the Sci-fi channel. I enjoy watching the guys from TAPS not because thier hotties, but because thier paranormal investigations try to catch evidence and then debunk it, or debunk other's theories and evidence.

Do I actually believe in ghosts/hauntings? I believe something paranormal can exist but until I have an actual conversation with a ghost, I am not sure they are souls of the departed who have not crossed over. Ive witnessed some odd things, luckily I was never alone so I know I am not nuts. Also, you know how deep inside you get a 'gut feeling' that is strong enough to pay attention to? That happens to me on rare occassion-and I am usually the last person to get spooked by anything. But, Ive learned to listen to my 'gut feeling' in all situations because it is usually never wrong. I've posted about Oklahoma hauntings and poltergeists in the past, you can read them here:

I came across a website:

What to watch for – and what to do about it

I believe that God's world is huge - beyond our comprehension - and that there are many things that exist that we mere human beings cannot explain.

OH - I gotta tell you about Wilma - the horse on Daufuskie Island that took us for a carriage ride. She had recently witnessed another horse attacked by an allegator (the horse needed over 150 staples in its face). When Wilma led us in between two ponds, she stopped and looked both ways - moved real slow. The woman who takes care of all the horses and was driving the carriage (a handler?) said that she gets nervous around the water. It was so amazing. We all loved Wilma - just watching her head move back and forth - left to right. She was a dark brown horse and she was wonderful. I thought of you!

cowgirl-cool, I enjoy checking out 'haunted places'. My best friend L. always said I was comfortable wandering around dead people because being Native American, we sit up with our deceased loved ones until thier burial.

fixcat-that is a neat pic,huh? Your first paragraph in your comment sums it up in the best words I have ever heard! My issues on faith and God set aside, so much in our world is unexplainable. Wilma sounds like a sweet horse, wow, an alligator attack? that poor horse. how scary. My horse when walking across a bridge or anytype of 'foreign footing'-he puts his head down with his nose almost touching the ground..

I believe in ghosts or other supernautral things.

Short story here: When I was 12 my mother was killed, and most nights after I went to sleep, the door would open all by itself and I would feel my mom come and sit on the bed beside me and run her hand over my forhead into my hair. Or I'd hear her walking down the hall, or hear cupboards in the kitchen being opened then closed.

So yeah, I believe in ghosts.

Kari-I lost my mother just before I turned 12 also. Your experiences sound neat, I can understand why you believe in them. To a certain extent i am a believer as well....
