We lived in a home in Flushing in what was known as ''The Reservation'' (because the street names were all of Indian origin). Several strange things occurred there throughout the ten years we lived there. One day the vacuum cleaner suddenly started. I went over to turn it off, and noticed that it was not even plugged in. One time I was home sick in bed and awakened by someone calling my name. I thought perhaps it was the neighbor who had opened the back door and called me. I got up, went to the back door, and looked out. I saw no one. I then called the neighbor and asked her if she wanted anything important. She started laughing and asked me what I was talking about. I explained, and she assured me she did not call out to me and had not been near my house. When I returned to bed one night, I was lying there fully awake and had a sensation that someone had sat on the bed next to me.
I could see the indentation just as though someone had indeed sat there. I had a Yorkie dog that immediately jumped aside and stared at that same spot -- quite eerie indeed. I was never frightened. It was not a menacing ghost.|
My bedroom, which was the master bedroom, had mirrored sliding doors on the closet. Immediately behind the closet was our large dressing table with a very large mirror attached. While cleaning the closet mirrors one day I felt as though someone was staring at me. I looked into the mirrors and observed very clearly a face of a younger woman, maybe mid 30s in age, coming from the dresser mirror behind me. Again, I was not frightened. The woman was smiling serenely as if just to let me know she was there. Several things happened throughout the years. I had mentioned to my teenage daughter some of the occurrences, and she just kind of laughed at me. One day her friend came over and told my daughter that her grandparents had originally owned the home.
This home was very unique as far as style. It was not your typical ranch style or tri-level that was the norm for this subdivision. She said her grandfather had had the house built for her grandmother, as it resembled a home they had seen in California. That made perfect sense to me as it was a house with a lot of floor-to-ceiling windows. I had always thought that this house should have been on the ocean or near a great lake because of all of the windows. My daughter then commented to her friend (tongue in cheek of course) that I had told her the house was haunted. Her friend, matter of factly, related to us that her relatives had said the same thing and told of some of the tales her relatives had stated.
One that stood out to me was the tale of the vacuum cleaner running without it being plugged in. That did make the hair on my arms stand up!! Within a year my daughter had an occasion to be alone in the home for the weekend as we were away. She called me and said she would be having friends coming to stay the night as she had been scared out of her wits. She told me she was lying in the bathtub and had heard someone calling to her. She was thinking it was one of her girlfriends popping in to see her and told them she would be right out. While she was getting dressed she still heard someone talking to her. She just thought it was her girlfriend although she could not fully make out the conversation. When she went out to the living, kitchen area, there was no one there, and she checked all of the doors, and they were all locked up tight! Needless to say from that time on she did not question me or laugh at me when I related another ''happening''.
