I've never seen anything strange but my dad claims he has. In fact, Pop claims to have seen a little of the paranormal. It happened about 30 yrs. ago. My grandparent's neighbor was this elderly widower. The only relative alive for this man was his son and they were estranged. My dad and the man were close, however. One day the man called my grandfather and said that he had just finalized the legal work to leave his house to my father. The next day someone found the old man sitting in his kitchen table w/ the phone beside him. It was concluded that he died soon after talking w/ my grandfather.

And so, the house went to my father. My dad hadn't been living there long when late one night he noticed that a family room picture was turned backwards. He turned it back around thinking my grandfather did it as a joke during the day and that he just hadn't noticed. Less than 5 minutes later when dad came back into the room the picture was once again turned backwards. Grandpa insists that he didn't turn the picture.

A few nights later my dad was sleeping in bed when he awoke for no reason. He rolled over to try a new position and there at the end of his bed was the old man just staring at my dad. Perhaps my dad was dreaming or seeing things but he is so certain that he saw the man.

I am a 17 year old male and i have had a similar experience. I woke up one morning and rolled over in my bed and an old lady was staring at me with an evil grin. I could desribe her perfectly. As i trembled and tried severel times(but failed) she slowly dissapeared. i will never forget that terrer. I have no explanation for my occurance nor your grandfathers but if you find anything out please let me know.
