I've written about the strange shenanigans we've experienced in our house.  For a while, my Grandma was making regular appearances.

Which is all well and good because this WAS/IS her house.  Except that she's been dead since 1995.

We've heard the footsteps in the middle of the night, walking from the kitchen to her bedroom, which is now Thing 1's bedroom.

We've heard voices.  I've seen Shadow People flitting by out of the corners of my eye.

Overnight guests have woken up in the middle of the night and have seen a figure standing in the kitchen.

Even my dead dog, Lucy, showed up, which I will admit made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. 

But it's been pretty quiet lately.  Unless you count the noise Thing 1 makes when he comes home in the wee small hours of the morning from wherever it is he's been.  

I mean, I KNOW where he's been and with whom; I'm just not allowed to say where and with whom.



Things had been quiet on the Paranormal Front.  Until we started our kitchen remodel, which is coming along nicely and someday I'll post pictures of the kitchen.  But don't hold your breath.

So, during our kitchen remodel, things turned up but nothing really unusual happened.

And then something Unusual Happened.

Something that scared the ever-lovin' crap out of me when I saw it for the first time.

I had walked into the kitchen and when I turned on the light, I saw It.  The Face in the Window.

But it was not someone on the front porch, staring in at me.

It was a Face.  In the window.  Not in front of the window.  IN the window.

And the Face was of someone screaming in terror.  Or horror.  I'm not sure which.

And when I saw The Face in the Window, I screamed too.  In terror.  AND horror.  And I may have peed a little.  But that might be because I really need to do my Kegel exercises.

But what was kind of weird about The Face in the Window was when I discovered you could not see it from outside and you couldn't see it when the kitchen light was off.

It could only be seen at night when the kitchen light was on.

I was not the only member of the family to see the Face in the Window.  We all saw it.

We wondered, what did it want?  What had terrified it so?  Was it trying to tell us something?  Did it not approve of our kitchen remodel?

You could only see The Face in the Window at night with the kitchen light on.

One night, I was able to capture the Face in the Window with my cellphone camera and am sharing it with you.

It's pretty scary and not for the Faint of Heart.  So don't say you've been warned.

Happy Halloween!
