Talking Small Ghost Story

I've been really lucky with my kids. Both have been raised around attorneys, Judges, pastors and other authority figures. I've taken them to the courthouse with me and even in the courtroom when I was in a pinch. They pretty much know how to act. But, that being said, I have also made them aware that even those authority figures put their pants on one leg at a time just like the rest of us.

Ummmmm.......there is one thing that I'm going to put in at the end of my Epcot day that will may have you rethinking the "well mannered" comment. Nothing too bad though.

I don't blame you for being giddy! I'm still over 8 months from my trip and I get giddy thinking about it.

Again, feel free to share your ghost story with us.
Well, I look forward to the rest of your trip report and to see how your kids do....

Well, before my wife and I were married, we were on a trip to Maine, and staying at a hotel in York Beach. It was a place we stayed a lot, but the first time in that room. It was a room with 2 beds, and the 2 beds were seperated by a wall that was maybe half the room. Our bed was the farthest from the door, and next to a window.

We were both asleep, soundly, and (this is what I felt) I suddenly felt a presence standing over me, like a person, large maybe, very stongly. I usually am jumpy when sleeping and somebody comes into a room with me or near me. Well, I literally jumped out of bed, down to the floor on my knees looking for the person that I was sure was in the room with us.



At exactly the same time, my wife says she felt the same kind of presence! She also woke up, though only sat up and and looked around, though she was jumpy.



There wasn't anyone in the room but us! No sounds, no person, no nothing!!! Nothing was moved, no smells, no sounds, just an overwhelming presence standing over us both!

We both had that feeling of someone in the room with us. To this day, I can still feel it, even though we didn't see anything and this experience was over 10 years ago. It was and has been the only time we have ever had such an experience.

We asked around (not to obviously, didn't want to seem crazy ) but there were no ghost rumors for that hotel. I have searched online a few times as well, but to avail.

I have a feeling it will be with me for the rest of my life. I have been to a few Civil War battle sights and several haunted walks and other haunted places, and never felt the same feelings or presence. I wish I could explain it better and impress how strong this feeling was. I literally jumped out of bed, straight to the floor!

Thanks for letting me add my little ghost story, Lisa. Enjoying the TR muchly. Thanks for sharing!

Now that is pretty cool. I don't know if I believe or not in ghosts. I've never had a real encounter personally. I am very sensitive to what is around me tho so I understand how one would feel.

It was interesting. We never stayed in that room again, so we didn't get a chance to try again (not that I want to feel it again...)

I don't know if I believe in ghosts either, but, as both my wife and I had exactly the same feeling and experience, there was something....

And your boss, with the speakers, sounds like something mine would do--only not over speakers, but something else in the car. I've been with him for 34+ years and he continues to amaze me with some of the stuff he comes up with.
That's so sweet of you to say. I am super proud of my children. Lacey is turning out to be one of those gentle souls who just wants to help save the world. Hunter is the typical 12 year old boys but is so loving and tender hearted.

I know that you are getting really excited about your trip. Especially since you had to cancel it before and didn't think you'd be going back so soon.

The boss is so silly. When he called, he sounded frantic for me to find a dealership because something was wrong with his car. You can imagine my surprise when I called him back and he told me it was just a busted stereo speaker. Silly silly man!

Love the jumping Epcot pics. Your kids are such a fun pair. I like the fact that they obviously love each other very much. I would have loved to have had a relationship with my brother, but it just didn't work out that way.

Glad your tooth stayed in place for lunch! I bet you had super glue on you, just in case, didn't you???

Who cares if someone is on the ground looking up taking pictures? Photographers do that all the time. It kills me that people think its okay to walk by and give odd looks, like they feel better about themselves for doing it. In my report, I talk about "looks" that I got, too, in regard to Mitchell's misbehaving. It irritates me to no end.

Speaking of my report, my link is http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2138984. You can check out my TN report in progress! I hope you'll stop by and pay me a visit.

Chatter? What chatter? We don't chatter on my report! Seriously, glad that you're caught up.

The pictures that I've posted so far are the ones from my old Kodak camera before it stopped working. I still haven't taken it to the camera shop yet to see if it can be repaired.

Isn't the CBR beautiful when it's quiet and peaceful in the morning. That's one of the things we love about the resort.

I've been really lucky with Lacey and Hunter. They have always gotten along well. Lacey was 10 when Hunter came along and a lot of people said she'd be jealous of him. Well, she was jealous alright but not like people thought. She was jealous when somebody took him away from her! Now that she's gone away to school, it makes Hunter (and John, me and Mamaw) extremely happy when she does get to come home and spend time with us.

My sisters are both older than me. One is 6 years older and the other is 12 years older. We get along quite well now that we are all grown up.

You better believe that I had the super glue with me. I had one tube in the backpack, one in the room and one in the car. I was always prepared just in case!

Honey, Lacey and I were all over the place taking pictures. I didn't care if I got looked at or not. I was gonna get my picture! (insert snapping my fingers sound) I always try to refrain from giving people "looks" because I don't know their situation or the problem they are dealing with. That's not to say I don't think those "looks" in my head but I try not to show them.

I'm going to head over to your report and take a look see.

Just the thoughts of it kinda creeps me out!

But I love a good ghost story, just the same.
I don't know what happened up there except for what they told me. I think it's pretty creepy.

It doesn't really bother me too much. The only time it does is when the smoke smell gets to me.

I would never ever never ever encourage my children to misbehave. I just buy them things like fart machines and fart whistles.

Ooooooh! I like that story. Well, not like that it happened to you but you know what I mean. I once woke up from a sound sleep to see a little girl standing at the foot of my bed. I, literally, shook my head and wiped my eyes to make sure she was there. She was still there just looking at me. Then, she turned around and walked off. Just faded away!

I used to wonder if there were ghosts or spirits or if it was just all tricks of the mind. But, after having had several things happen to me and to members of my family, I think I believe.

That is pretty freaky alright. That beats my dreams of killing off my dad when I was pregnant.

She is always blaming him for stuff she makes him do. We caught on to her tricks. I'm writing John a letter of apolgy. That would be apology

Excuse me! But, I don't think I have ever claimed to be the quiet reserved one. We don't have those in my family. I think that I rebel when I leave the office. I have to look and act a certain way when I am here so once I get home, I shuck it all and can act myself. I know when and where I have to act reserved and it ain't at home!

Now, John, he's a real troublemaker and he's sneaky about it. A lot of times, the only way I can tell whether or not he's fibbing is by looking at the corner of his eyes. If they are all crinkled up, he's pulling a fast one on me.

Seriously though......we are all a bunch of jokers.
