Does anyone have a good ghost experience to share?
I really don't. However, some strange stuff used to happen in the house that I grew up in. I grew up in an old plantation house in SC. My great-grandmother lived in the house her whole life, and the house was passed down to my father. She at one point lived in this house by herself for several years after my great-grandfather died. When we moved in the house there were several marks in the wall upstairs that we inquired into. My grandmother told my father that my great-grandmother had stated that she often heard strange noises and voices within the walls and that she had gotten an axe and went at the wall. Needless to say that freaked me out hearing that as a kid. No, my great-grandmother was not crazy, quite the southern "lady" as a matter of fact. The only strange thing that happened in that house to me had to do with the water faucet in my bathroom which was part of my bedroom. It would turn on at times, always at night. Sometimes, I would be wide awake at the time and knew that there was nobody in my room. Plus, I would often actually hear the faucet dials turning on. It freaked me out because I was really young, my parents thought I was losing it. I found out later that two people, including my great-grandfather had died in that room. Needless to say I requested and got a room change.

2. My (lame) ghost story
When I was in college, I took a summer job as maid at a hotel. There was a painting on one of the walls in the lobby. When this painting disappeared one morning, everyone assumed that it had been stolen. By that afternoon, the painting reappeared on the wall. The weird part was that there were no witnesses to the theft or the painting's return (you could see the painting from the desk). My employers blamed "George" for this practical joke. George was allegedly a ghost who had a reputation for playing practical jokes on hotel staff. However, I had no real experiences with George.

3. I don't know about good ghosts but...
We do have a lot of weird things happen in my home. A few months ago, my daughter was going to heat up a Hot Pocket in the microwave...and found a bowl of Country Crock margarine in the microwave. No way to know how it got there--we don't buy the stuff anymore. We've had other odd incidents occur. None of which we can explain.

These incidents are never frightening--just puzzling. Like finding a lost shirt in a place you've looked 100x before. Makes life interesting, eh?

4. Bumps, rattles, and crashes
All the time. We blame it on the cats. If there's an actual ghost, it's going to have a tough time getting noticed ;-)
