Car Games to Pass the Time


My husband and I were out and about today and we were sitting in traffic and he announces “punch buggy orange no return “with a punch to the arm. Wow I said, “I didn’t see that buggy” and sure enough I look behind me and there was the orange bug convertible.

We got to talking about the car games we all have played with friends and family.

Who remembers playing PaDiddle, License Plate and Punch Buggy game? There are real rules and a point system for these games. If you haven’t played them look them up online and start playing. It’s a great pass time for the kids and the family if you are traveling by car going on vacation.

This brought back memories of my late childhood and from time to time my husband and I play the punch buggy game but there are very few old buggies around and the new buggies don’t count.

Be creative and have fun!

What was your favorite car game? Leave a comment and let me know.

A Ghostly Encounter on Moving Day


Well here it is moving day and its early morning in November and our two friends  arrived at the house before my husband and I  did, we were driving back home with the U-haul. We greeted our company in the driveway and my friend David told me that he sees an old man in the window rocking in a rocking chair. Well enough said, I wasn’t feeling like myself all morning long and to hear that come from David really set the mood. I was just plain anxious! Today, I am learning from my friend David that there is a mean ghost living in the house. Really? A mean ghost. This is David’s first time coming to my home. I wish I had David over sooner it would have explained a lot of the 6 years of living in this miserable house.

So we talked about things and what we were doing first. We go into the house and start with plan A. I am talking but watching David at the same time. David was getting the readings from standing in the kitchen. He started asking questions and walking around but I didn’t follow. I just let him feel out the house. My friend David is a medium and he can see and talk to the spirits.  I hung out in the kitchen with my friend and my husband drinking coffee. I had turned the heat on but as usual it was very cold in the house.

So we started moving furniture and items from the first floor into the truck and then David and I went upstairs to the den. Now the den is the place where the old man was sitting in the rocking chair in front of the window. The den was my office and my favorite hang out in the house. It was always very warm in this room and there was always a heaviness in the air but things occasionally happened in this room.

David start walking around in the den and says “Is there someone here”? The air was heavy and I could feel a presence standing somewhere in front of me. I have limited ability when it comes to seeing ghosts but I can feel their presence of someone in a room with me. I moved slowly in the room, I put my hands in front of me and started parting the ways to try to feel where the presence was in the room. I can feel it but I can’t find it, I said to David. David said, the ghost wants you to go on the computer and buy something. He also said, he likes to watch everything you do on the computer and he thanks you for the floor. The floor was re-finished and why would he thank me for that? My mouth was starting drop and it only gets better from here. David continues to tell me that this ghost likes playing with me. Well, I didn’t find that funny one bit and I was a bit pissed off but why would I give this ghost the satisfaction at this point!

Come to find out from talking with David, this ghost was mean but he also told me that he did something really bad back in the day.

Here’s a little something I need to share with you before I go any further. For 5 years I had the same recurring dream that I found bones in the floor in the den.  I only told my husband about the recurring dreams because I didn’t want anyone to think I was crazy. Well come to find out from other sources of psychics that there is something in the floor of the den. Damn! I knew I should have taken up the boards and taken a look but it’s too late now.

We continued moving as planned and my thoughts started running wild about all the bad luck that took place at this house and all the things that happened, everything started to make sense. That ghost played a “Wild Card” with me and made me feel like I was crazy and out of control. Ghosts have a way of doing things to people that makes your life seem abnormal. This ghost apparently didn’t care for women because I had found out from David that all the women who ever lived in this house became sick. I was one of those women I became ill in the 2nd year of living in this house and was sick for about a year.

Moving day is coming to an end and now its time for dinner. We took our friends out to dinner at Luigi‘s for the best pizza in the City of Manchester. We chatted about other things and life but no more mention of the ghost. At this point I was sure I didn’t want to know anymore.

I am glad we are out of that house and we have started our life over in a place we can call home that’s full of peace and yes we live with a friendly ghost.

19 days of Such is Life


Its been 19 days since I started blogging and when I started I wasn’t sure of the blogging thing. I can say “I love it”!

I feel refreshed and my mind is clearer when I am able to express myself and that’s truly important to one’s self.

We all get wrapped up in everyday things and we sometimes don’t get the opportunity to share a story with someone.  Since I started writing it has helped me to remember lost life stories that got pushed to the back of closet. We all need to clean out the closet and make room for the new.

I truly appreciate everyone who has read my blogs and best of all thank you to those for leaving comments. It’s a feeling of fulfillment that someone else can read my blogs and have a laugh, learn something new, get the chills or just simply smile because they read something that made them feel good.

Thank you to my closest friends for being my inspirations. You all deserve a HUGE thank you!
