Had a place called Heart Beat Bridge near Tabor City NC. Middle of no where surrounded by swamp you could park on the old wooden bridge turn out all your lights and once in a while you'd see a light moving through the swamp. Lots of stories about why the light happened but cool place to take a date back then in High School. I have seen that light and others have to.

My brother and I saw the same ghost sitting in a rocking chair at the end of our beds when we were staying at my Grandfather's turn of the century farm house in Nacogdoches, Texas. It sat there and rocked for a while and then got up and walked out of the room. Creepy part was that you could not hear any foot steps on the wood floors of the house. In that house, you could hear everyone walking because it was on crawl space with very little insulation. Nobody believed us!

If a ghost can walk through walls, why doesn't it fall through the floor? ;?

A psychiatrist is addressing a group of people who have all had experiences with the supernatural. He asks: "Who here has seen a ghost?"

Everyone puts up their hands. He then asks: "Who here has spoken with a ghost?"
Half the audience puts up their hands. "And who here has touched a ghost?" Ten percent of the crowd puts up their hands.
He asks: "And who here has made love with a ghost?" One little man in the back row puts up his hand...
The psychiatrist looks down from the podium at the little man and says: "Do you mean to tell me that you have made love with a ghost?" The man replies, "Oh No! I'm sorry. I couldn't hear you correctly. I thought you said 'goat'."

A group of us as kids saw one in broad daylight when we were younger. I'll never forget it. I'd share it but you might send the men in white jackets to pick me up!

Both.One of my favorites.
I was awakened one sultry summer August night about 2am by fiddle music drifting in through the open screen window. Living in a rural setting ,I thought one of the neighbours was having a bond-fire hoedown (as in put your work aside). I admired the spunky tune until slumber caught up to me.
A few days later I caught up to my neighbour , Murray , and said, "That was a dandy fiddle player you folks had the other night , who was he?"
He replied , "If we were having folks over for a hootenany , you would have surely been there " with a confused expression on his face.;?
I reported back to the admiral.
My father originally purchase this farm from Murray's great uncle Ed .
Murray's wife Maryanne is a familly and local history buff , so the admiral suggested I pop in and quiz her .
Always following instructions , I did.
I asked her if she knew of a party the other night or heard music?
No was the short answer , but then she broke into a story of how her uncle Eddy would throw a wingding after the grain harvest and many would be there enjoying themselves into the wee hours of the morning listening to this locally renound fiddler
Now , over the years , our bunkhouse workers and my family have reported a tall , slender apparition.
"What was he like?" I posed.
"Very energetic and hard working even though you wouldn't expect it from him being of such slight build , lanky and taller than most"
My jaw must have hit the ground for , she asked " Why? "
Needless to say , I recounted my recent experience and those of the others.
She replied , " Next time say hello for us and tell him not to forget our invite ! "

A place a buddy and I rented in college we had a few experiences, although all the drugs and alcohol we were into - 25 years later we are not real sure about.
- kitchen cabinets would always be opened when we got home (but would never open when we were home)
- our dope would always be missing (pretty sure that was him smoking my dope, or me forgetting)
- one of the oddest was - late one night came home from work late (1am) he was not home. Laid on the coach and fell asleep with a baseball hat on. Woke to someone hit me with my hat hard enough that I jumped up to give, who I assumed my neighbor a nut shot. There was no one else in the house.
- there were a couple other odds and ends as well.

When we were moving out, we said something to the guy next door. He said that someone had been killed there about 10 years earlier...over drugs.

I stayed in a house at college over spring break with a few friends to finish up our independent study projects. One night I woke up to the sound of a sort of fantastic dinner party -- laughing, silverware / glasses clinking, stuff like that -- the funny thing was that it kinda receded into the ether in equal increment to my waking. It just faded away like a vague but pleasant dream.

I thought nothing of it until the next day when one of my friends asked if any of us had heard a party the night before -- we all had the same exact experience. It happened several times after that during our stay. It wasn't a ghostly figure, but more the afterglow of something really joyful...just pure mirth. All of us who stayed in that house will never forget it and talk about it to this day.

A ghost? A haunting? I have no idea, but it was unlike anything we all had experienced before or since. The one thing I can safely say is that it wasn't eerie or unsettling...quite the opposite, it was more like you wanted to join the fun but couldn't.

I have had a couple, but one of the most memorable was about 15 years ago. The Catholic hospital that I worked in had some very old areas to it and I had been told of the ghost of Father Morris by many ICU staff members and old timers. We had just lost a terminally ill patient and I was in the room alone with the patient when I saw the what appeared to be an older Catholic priest walk by the window of the room. Right after that I felt a strong hand on my shoulder, kinda like a reassuring shoulder squeeze from a friend. When I turned nobody was there, but there was no feeling of fear or dread. I felt like I had just been given a kind word. Soon afterwards I found out that my coworkers had all experienced the same thing while caring for patients in that ICU. The hospital moved about 13 years ago and sometimes I wonder if Father Morris came too.

I lived in a neighborhood called Lake Ridge in Oakton, Va. from 2-7 yrs. old. The original barn that belonged to the farm house was haunted. Lots of strange occurrences there! My brother and 2 of his friends tried to spend the night in it once and they came back home about 12:30 pm FREAKED out talking about indians and strange illuminated clouds inside the barn. There was even a book written about it called The Oakton Haunt.

Some of you may have heard of the lights over Phoenix. Well, I was there outside and saw the famous one....it was not flares. It had shape and it blocked the stars. Second, was with my best friend driving to Tucson. It's either military or something else but I saw it.

Our church is over 300 years old and has an amazing cemetary around it. A number of years ago the kids and wife had some Sunday school garbage to attend to in the evening. I figured what more fun than to walk around in the cemetary during a full moon and see what happens. Nothing happens, guess I scared 'em off. The kids do ,however, have one really cool "Ghost Walk" every year where they dress up as some of the more interesting persons buried there and tell the audience about themselves. It is always well done and entertaining. Come to think of it I would have really liked to bump into my Dad's ghost. We could sit on the bench at the pond and laugh about past fishing exploits together.
