My Haunted Missouri Home

I love to drop in on Haunted Missouri's Blog. I thought perhaps you would find it interesting to read about MY Missouri haunted house. I have always poo pooed the whole ghost thing. I am not scared to be alone or anything like that. I am more scared of people than I am of ghosts. So yeah, I live in the middle of nowhere. The first event ghostly occurrence that made me realize all was not what it seemed here, went something like this: I was on the phone near the front door. Kids and puppy were playing in the same room as myself. It was towards evening but not quite dark yet. There was a sharp KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK on the door. Puppy looked at door and barked. Kids looked at me. I told person on phone to "Hang on. I had to see who was at the door." I was right there. I looked. I opened door. ( stupid me) There was NO ONE! Before you put this down to the ole Ding Dong Ditch trick, remember I live in the middle of nowhere. Where are you going to go? For that matter where did you come from? Wait. Don't answer that. Writing that just gave me goosebumps. So Yeah, I am a little more scared of ghosts now than I used to be. I will tell you more of this story in a later posting. Yes there is more... Stay tuned.
