    Filly, thanks for your comments. It is very unsettling to live in a house where weird things keep happening. It was unnerving to go to bed with things arranged one way and get up and find them in another place. Another very strange thing that I didn't mention; I used to have a collection of troll dolls (remember those?). Anyway, I would get up in the morning and one or two of the troll dolls hair was braided. Remember how they had that crazy colored, wild hair; it would be braided in neat braids down their back. Very weird; my father kept saying "get rid of those dam_ dolls. Anyway, a couple of years ago when my brother came to visit me in Florida, he brought me a giant (about 5 feet tall) Santa troll doll - it is very cute and so far no braided hair!! Thanks again for reading and your comments. Katt

    No thanks needed. O.K.so ummm the Troll dolls? Uhhh. LOL I'm sorry, but that is frightening. So glad big Santa troll has his doo all the same.

    Feeling for your dad as well. IMO often men don't want to face the fact there's more out there than we know. My own dad was that way. Things would go missing and turn up in way out weird places. One time a fork came right off a plate as if someone was clearing the table. Nope! My dad didn't want to know. Finally when a piece of his jewelry went missing and he was the only one home and turned up later in one really odd spot was he half "believing".

    May you continue with Blessings, light, love and happiness. Oh and Santa Troll.

    I completely agree with the opinion that energy is left behind, particularly when someone exits this world suddenly. It's almost like a tag or marker that something happened there.

    I think it can be associated with other strong emotions too, like joy and love. Some places are 'happy' places, for no obvious reason. Others, peaceful and calming. It's all part of the same thing, imho.

    I always remember as a kid my parents told me of houses that suicides and murders had happened at, I wold always wonder how the current owners handled that type of residual energy. I don't know if I be able to live in a house where something terrible had happened.

    I think that some people are more sensitive to unseen energies than others are.

    I definitely agree with that. Some people have a "gift" that allows them to perceive things others cannot. And also with certain children. There is something about a child's still developing mind that sometimes allows them to "see and hear" things that adults normally cannot.

    Ive seen quite a few paranormal type shows where a lot of times the child in the home is the first one and sometimes the only one to notice strange happenings. As the child gets older, their ability for that normally diminishes.

    They demolished that house years ago. The fire department used it as a training tool. The area is now known as Mt. Rainier. It is right near the MD/DC line.

    Mount Rainier existed as a city separate from Cottage City, although they were adjacent. Later, the post office consolidated a lot of smaller Maryland post offices into larger, more centralized regional post offices. Over time, many of the smaller areas simply came to be known by their regional post office address.

    Before my DH and I bought some acreage and built our home where we now reside, we'd looked at another property with a old farmhouse & large parcel of land.
    Suffice it to say we declined.

    Not sure if a crime had ever happened there, but there was a feeling of dread around the place that grew as we inspected the lot with the realtor.
    She seemed to want to point out the nice acreage and ultra-reasonable offer, but didn't say much about the house which was due for a big remodel, other than that it had 'good bones' !

    Maybe it was the two or more birds that flew past our heads as we walked up the still intact stairs.
    Or the overgrown yard with rusty farm implements scattered around.
    Or the pond thick with an algae bloom and seemingly filled with more rusted junk.
    All of this could be cleaned and cleared away.
    But it felt like a brooding presence lingered there.

    I felt like there were crimes or secrets waiting to be discovered. :eek:
    But then the realtor would've disclosed this, imo.

    Great thread topic and posts, everyone !
