Hee hee, well, I never really bought into all that jazz myself until we moved in here.
Every now and then, out of the corner of my eye, I would see Mom (plain as day) walking through the hall either headed to the bathroom or the kitchen only to find out that no one was about at all. I just wrote it off as my mind playing tricks on me and never said anything.
After I married, and my wife and I had moved back in with Mom (she wasn't doing good financially or physically living alone) our daughter came to spend the summer with us. One morning she told me that while she was talking to her boyfriend on Instant Messenger, she thought she saw Grandma looking over her shoulder reading her messages. She slammed IM shut and whipped around only to see no-one there. In fact, no one anywhere. Everyone was asleep.
I quipped "Oh yeah I forgot to tell you, we have a ghost in residence" and kinda laughed about it, but then my wife chimed in with "I wasn't going to say anything about this but..." and once we all began comparing stories, we all realized we had ALL seen this ghost at one time or another, and all of us thought it was Mom, except Mom who always thought it was just one of us.
Our Ghost is a thin, little old lady and is really more of a guardian angel than ghost. She wanders about a bit at night but never get's up to anything. She seemed to have a particular interest in our daughters "love-life" (who was 15 at the time) always seeming to read her IM's and at one point even seeming to offer advice by changing something she had typed.
I saw her again last night actually only come to think of it, it was different this time. I was watching Alfred Hitchcocks Rear Window when I saw, straight on rather than out of the corner of my eye, a shadow go through the hall into the kitchen and heard what sounded like rustling, sorta like when you bump into something but not very hard. I thought it was my wife getting a soda, but then just a few seconds later, my wife opened the bedroom door and came out to tell me something.
Hmm... I wonder if our ghost has friends?
