My Fathers Encounters with Lemurs

Posted on March 14, 2011

I dont have much time left to send this so excuse any grammatical errors.

My father always claimed he was related to Leslie Grantham but I had always brushed him off and put it down to old age. It wasnt until I was clearing his attic (he died two weeks ago) that I discovered some secrets I wish I could erase from my memory.

I found a couple of leather bound journals with various entries made between 1943 and 1945 where he talks about his friends Albert and Lettice. In fact, I have just realized that he never refers to Albert by just his first name. He always followed it with Lemur. I assumed this was a surname name but at the back of the book it has a list of Lemurs where it lists six names including Albert Frost 1927 and Lettice Armitage 1899. I figured this was a list of the Lemur family but after further research it seems I was wrong. Very wrong.

My father suffered with schizophrenia so it was common for him to sound crazy but I had never expected it to be me who was accused of being crazy.

The journals intrigued me so I looked for more information in the attic and discovered pictures of my father with his arms in strange positions. He looked different, almost like he was a completely different person. I suppose I should have clicked then.

On the back of two of the photos it says me and Bert Lemur at Kensington Gardens. The curious thing is that Albert isnt in the picture with him. There is no one in the picture with him.

The other pictures have nothing on the back but he still has his arms in similar positions, no doubt embracing other Lemurs.

Although this was disturbing, nothing could prepare me what for I was about to uncover. In one of the journals, he talks about staying in temporary accommodation with Albert Lemur and Lettice. He says that they shared a room as he did not have enough money for three and talks about his annoyance with his friends and their improper activities. However, he describes a tingling sensation that he did not have the ability to ignore and found himself as an active participant.

Discovering your father had a threesome is pretty ground breaking except for the final discovery of what Lemur truly meant. My father was fluid in Latin and always encouraged me to embrace the language but I found it to difficult.

The word Lemur means ghost.

Every story should have a message, mine would be trust no one and do not assume a person is crazy just because they sound crazy. I am not crazy and now you know the truth.

    so he was dealing with a most un understood mental issue. i would say that gave him an advantage to the otherside!

  2. A says:

    Not much time left?

    • BekkieLassy says:

      I think what she ment by not much time left is that she only had a few min or so left of free time to subbmit the story.

      But now that I think about it. Maby there is a deeper meaning to it.

    skitsofrenia is a deises that you see things and he could just say that he thinks their ghosts u think what you want but its not a ghost storie its a storie thats sad cas he belived he saw ghosts and hung out with them

    • Anonymous says:

      Hey Anonymous, totally agree with you. This story is not a ghost story, it is a hearbreaking tale of ‘skitsofrenia’ and Man’s Journey to the brink of sanity….AND beyond. This is one of the few stories on the site that has brought me to tears, and not just because of my lemurphobia but because I have known several people who had skitsofrenia – though admittedly, three of those people were indeed myself. That being said, this story is no laughing matter.

      To Trolldoll, the first commenter, what makes you think it is a un understood mental issue? I can’t imagine any mental issue being more clarified. The man saw lemurs for christ sake. It’s strange though isn’t that, and this is scientifically proven, when people do indeed have scitsofrenic episodes with animals, they only see animals beginning with the letter L. Llamas for example. Ladybird too. I once imagined a Llama before I ever saw a picture of one. Does that make me God, TrollDoll? Did I … INVENT….THE LLAMA?

      A says – there is not much time left. I don’t know what you mean by this. Consult doctor if you don’t think there’s much time left, it could be hereditary.

      • Caretaker says:

        This story has nothing to do with Lemurs the animals – Lemure is a word that is used to describe a ghost as explained in the story

      • BekkieLassy says:

        @ Anonymous.
        I read your comment again. It’s actualy desterbing that you are so mean to the commenters and just attacing them when you are the one thats got it all wrong. You actualy just proven that you realy has a mental problem and do only see things your mind wants you to see. I’m actualy realy mad now.
        A’s comment is actualy a quention. A took a quote out of the story and aded a question mark behind it wich means that A is asking what the writer ment by that. You attaced trolldoll in the meanest way you could making your point out of nothing coz you didn’t read the story well. I just can’t explain to you how mad it makes me when people like you think you know beeter and more than other people. Well you asked if you are God. NO!!!!!!! your not even though your actink like you are…. Get your facts right before attacing people in feuture.
        Thanx Bekkie

    I don’t mean to be rude but you mised the story.
    Go back to the story. There’s a quote saying “The word ‘Lemur’ meant ghost” in Latin.
    I have to say that I copletely agree with trolldoll.
    I think you’ve got a problem coz you only saw what you whanted in the story and not the ral story.
    People sould read the stories carefully before judging the writer realy!

    • BekkieLassy says:

      Oh and I do believe that he saw ghosts.Lots of people think I am completely loony when I start babling about seeing a ghost.
      If I am not mistaken and please do correct me if I am wrong… Skitsofrinia is a matter where you freak out about what others cant see. So they start thinking that person is mad and take them for profetional help. A profetional only believe in what they can see, feal and smell. if they cant then its not there.
      Not everyboddy has the ability to see ghosts and comunicate to them. It’s a sence that only few of us have.
      Even though I can see and speak to ghost doesnt mean that when I start to talk to a ghost in public that people would not think I’m mad.
      A non believer will get me locked up for being loony.
      I do believe that her father was completely misunderstood by non believers and that he realy saw and hung out with ghosts and that made the non believer think that he has skitsofrinia.
      This story truely is sad.

    • trolldoll says:

      thank you bekkielassy!! how could you miss the meaning of lemur, the author wrote it out plain as day!!

  5. trolldoll says:

    i think that this,( i’m not going to try and spell it out lol) mental issue is misunderstood. after all there is not one person with it that has the same experiences! they don’t know what causes it, although i know head trama is one way. do they see things or hear things? some are labeled geniuses, because some have great talents in some areas, like music and math. it is misunderstood in my book!

    • Caretaker says:

      I believe that there have been a lot of people who have had dealings with ghosts/spirits/demons or the like and wound up locked up in a mental ward, especially in the past

      • BekkieLassy says:

        Yes it happened in the older days. Lots of people were locked up in the looney bin for seing ghost, they were clasified as just plain crazy… Even today in some places it still do happen and to me its sad. I cant even emagin fighting for my life trying to confince peole that im not crazy and that I do see ghosts. I’m just glad that ghost are more commen today and that some people actualy relate to you.

  6. BekkieLassy says:

    @ Caretaker
    I’m sorry for bursting out on Anonymous. But it makes me mad if people just attac others without a good reason and acting like they know better than eney boddy ever could. Anonymous seems to like to crack people down to look good. I just will never understand these people

  7. K. Smith says:

    Kaela story about her father seeing ghosts i.e. Lemurs explains a lot about his mental state. I firmly believe that the ghosts/lemurs are in fact demonic spirits masquerading as ghosts. I also believe that these demon spirits can cause insanity and schizophrenia i.e. multiple personalities to form in persons.

    Some in the scientific community want to believe schizophrenia i.e. multiple personality disorder is a severe brain disorder but those who are familiar with demon possession know that demonic spirits can take control of a persons body and operate through them causing their personality and behavior to radically change, cause serious mood swings hallucinations and delusions.

    Mark 5:2-5 – And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

    These Lemurs/ghosts i.e. demonic spirits contributed to Kaelas father schizophrenia.
