From 2000-2001 we lived in a large older home on Crockett Street that we were renovating while living there. The house really consists of two separate buildings that were connected not too long ago. There is a large old greenhouse in the yard. I like to grow orchids, which is one of the reasons we bought this house, since it had the roomy greenhouse. I had a wireless alarm set up in the upstairs bedroom that we were using to alert me of temperature drops in the greenhouse in winter, since the heater was fickle. One night in February 2001 the temperature alarm sounded around 2:00 am. I went to the greenhouse and found everything was working normally. When I walked back to the house I accidentally looked up to the upstairs window in the south building, which was still being renovated. I clearly saw the figure of a bearded man who appeared to be wearing overalls in the window looking at me, surrounded what only could be described as looking like a gray mist or aura. I initially thought it was an intruder and went on to search the building with a flashlight, a gun, and my dog, but found nothing, and nothing seemed to have been disturbed. This incident greatly puzzled me at first.
Two weeks later my hair literally stood up after a conversation with my neighbor to the south side of the house. He stated casually ''your painter is keeping really odd hours. I always see him working up there (he pointed at the very same window) in the middle of the night. '' The painter had not been inside the house for nearly two months, and no one, including me or my wife, had ever gone into the vacant building wing at night after the first incident! This was not the end of it. Sometime later, I think in April or May, I went out of town for a job interview. The police showed up at the house having been called by an elderly neighbor on the other side who reported a possible intruder in the very same wing of the house. No one was found, and all doors and windows were intact and locked. Needless to say, we were actually glad after having sold the house. Even though it was an absolutely beautiful house, we lost most of the money we had invested in the renovation!.

I used to live in Amarillo. My husband and I bought a house that was built in 1987 and never heard of any deaths in it. We lived there for eleven years, and it was very haunted! My son since a very early age (two) has been seeing ghost and still to this day has one with him all the time. A friend of mine says that she feels that it is one of his past grandfathers watching over him. When he was very little he would sleep sometimes with his big sister who is ten years older than him. He would tell her about the pretty floating lights that would be going across the ceiling and out the window into the front yard. My daughter could not see anything. I bought him a huge fire engine that lit up and made all sorts of noise from an old book store. Well, after I got it we found out that at times it would go off by itself, so I took the batteries out. One night it was in the middle of his bedroom floor, and at 3:00 am I was woken up with it going off with no batteries in it! That freaked me out!
My son had a Little Tykes work bench and a ghost attached itself to it. This ghost was of a man that was green, and you could only see him from the waist up. He would move the tools around at night and rearrange stuff while my son slept. My son could see him, and he would see other ghost in his room! One night he saw a man and a woman come out of his closet and walk straight across his room and out through the window. When he got up he could still see them on the front lawn! He could hear chains also, all of this since the age of two! He is very sensitive to them, and I am happy that he can see them still, which is unusual since he is now fourteen. My daughter had lots of things happen to her, door knobs twisting, figurines would go flying off her TV and land on her lap when she was playing video games. Her figurines would move all the time, and you could see the drag marks in her dusty room! She could hear voices at the end of her bed but could not ever make out what they were saying.
