Hi, I’m Lynn. I’m 57 years old and ever since I was 17 there has always been someone or something. I am one of 9 kids but there were only 7 of us still living at home when things started happening. To my mom also. Dad was at work most of the time so I don’t think he really believes us.
We would hear strange noises, things falling off shelves, my brothers saw a chair flip over. My sister heard someone outside the bathroom door when she was home alone. They were bouncing a ball in the hall. My sister, cousin and myself heard my name called out from the living room when they were in the den and I was in my room. My cousin and I met in the living room with me asking what they wanted and she was asking me why I was calling my own name. We were the only ones home.
In the middle of the night the record player would belt out The Beach Boys and sometimes we’d hear someone messing with the old piano we had. This stuff happened for about 3 years then we moved from that house. We had an old clock on top of the piano that never worked, but when we unpacked it we noticed it had run the whole time it took us to get to the new house. which was about 3 hours, it never worked after that.
Things started happening in this house. My mom was home alone cooking and heard what sounded like the shower door crashing into the tub. Our cat came running down the hall out the door and we never saw it again. Mom went to check and nothing was out of place. She named it Leroy so we could just say Leroy cut it out.
When my husband of 35 years and I were dating I always told him different stories and he wanted to experience something. One night we were up late watching TV and we heard someone walk down the hall and sit in the chair next to us. Then it got up and left. After that we were married 7 months later and it seems like it attached to me. Every house we lived in it was there.
I had 2 boys and since they were young they have had different experiences.They both said that in the early morning they could see what looked like a shadow of a cowboy. There were more things happening, then we moved to this house.
When my youngest was 10, my nephew spent the night and they started screaming around midnight. I went to see what was wrong and they said Leroy was standing at the end of the bed. I asked them why they didn’t come get me they said they would have to pass him to get out of the room. So they just covered their heads and screamed.
I went on a talk show in New Orleans about ghosts and stood up and told my story. Then we went to break. During break I told the hostess how he always seemed to follow me. After break the microphone wouldn’t work. She said that had never happened before and we had to go to another break. After the show no one would get in the elevator with my sisters and me.
Another thing happened not long ago and it happened a couple of times. We like to go walking in the woods and I bring my metal detector. On the way home it went off in the car. There would have had to have someone sitting back there turning it on and off. It wasn’t touching anything and if it wasn’t turned off to begin with it would have made the noise as soon as I put it in the car. There are many other happenings but I guess I got carried away. Usually I can’t write this much because it will automatically delete for some reason. I’d better quit while I’m ahead.
