I have a few more, (from my youth), but my mind is a fog w/ the exact details. Except for one. This one has plagued my memory forever. I was hesitant to tell it because I don't want the non-believers to think I'm just making it up for attention or that I'm crazy. That's not the case. Gonzo has heard all of these stories, (and even witnessed me freaking out over the talking dog), so I'm sure he's rolling his eyes at my posts.
The one incident that I do remember quite well happened when I was 6 or 7 years old. I recall that I kept hearing noises in my room and I got scared. This happened quite a bit and I would haul my pillow and blanket into my brother's room and crash. It drove him nuts, but he was always the protective older brother, so he let it slide occasionally.
Anyway, we were both asleep in his room and the next thing we know we heard a loud, *thump*. It sounded like someone or something hit his window. We both sat up and stared in the direction of the sound. We saw a light and an outline of a woman in an old-fashioned dress. She reached out towards my brother and we heard in a soft voice, "William". Then, a second later, she was gone.
We looked at each other and hauled ass out of his room, and darted into our parent's room. They got up and followed us to the room and told us that we were imagining things and to go back to sleep. I believe that we crashed in the living room for a week or so after that.
She never did return, but there were strange noises, doors closing on their own, etc. that happened before and after that incident. Now, if it was just me that saw/heard her, I would have figured it was my mind playing tricks on me. But, w/ my brother witnessing that, I had no doubt that what we experienced was paranormal.
The scary part about this incident... my brother's middle name is William.
