I've been haunted by the bank for the last 10 years. That count? Actually, DW claims my mother walks around at times. She has seen a rocker moving by itself and cabinet doors (that the cat can't reach) opened. Aggravates me that my mother hasn't come seen me yet. Our house is at least 180- 190 years old that my folks bought in 1943.

Know what? That should be 120-130 years old. Shouldn't be drinking at work I guess.

Is it the house that's haunted or the person. I've had strange things happen to me my entire life, even at two different hospitals I've worked at.

The old colonials do have character, the one i grew up in, was close to 200 yrs old, use to have a fire place in every room
I use to think we had a ghost in our house- my parents replaced the old chandeliers when we moved in,,,
and often we could still hear the noise they made-even when they weren;t in the house
as teenagers we had a few seances, got the ouija board out,,,,,we had to stop- we had candles going, but it got so cold in the room (all the sudden) we could see our breathe, and we all felt sick.

scared us all,,,we ran out of the house

Haha-True Blood! I've played with Ouija boards since I was 12. Loved them then and now. Have had "strange" things happening since I was a pre-teen. Can't blame the board for it.

I had one ghost experience in Maine, last year, in an old inn. Woke up around 2 AM to a knock near the door. I didn't know if someone was outside so I laid in bed listening. There were then about 6 to 8 raps on 3 walls, going in a circle. The final 3 or 4 raps were on a wall facing the ocean so the sounds couldn't have come from the hallway or other rooms. Very spooky!

Haven't lived in Maine long enough to experience any thing supernatural but lived in an old haunted farm house back in central NY.
