    Real Ghost Stories

    You Read That Right

    When I first started TwoCansOnAString.com true ghost stories were a regular feature on my blog.

    Over the years, TwoCansOnAString.com has gone through some changes . . . then reverted back to the eclectic clutter of an attic full of treasures. This was fine, but I’ve always felt something was missing . . .

    Passion . . . my passion for creating a place where family and friends gather to share their stories . . . You know as well as I do that telling true ghost stories are part of any gathering . . .

    When I did the post about S’Mores, I thought of camping and campfires . . . sitting around the fire pit in my own backyard . . . it dawned on me how much I miss sharing real ghost stories here.

    So . . . I thought it best to throw caution to the wind and return to my passion of writing ghost stores . . . Real ghost stories I hear from others who have had true paranormal experiences that have scared them, fascinated them and creeped them out.

    Well . . . let’s see how this works out!!

    Please join me on this journey . . . and create your own cozy place where your friends and family can gather in your own backyard to share your personal ghostly encounters or those you’ve read here and want to share.

    Would You Buy A Haunted Doll?

    I can't imagine  adopting a haunted doll. I was at my favorite antique mall a few weeks ago with some friends and I witnessed something I won't soon forget. We were looking around and when Barbara and Amy went to look at dolls, I followed them. I immediately...

    Ghost Chair

    Have you seen something out of the corner of your eye and then when you looked head-on it was there, but not? There is this "other dimension" that we're sometimes privy to seeing.  It makes you shake your head a little when you see something not fully...

    House Sitting

    When I was in high school I made extra money house sitting or pet sitting. I liked this better than sitting with kids. The hours were more flexible. A friend of my parents sold real estate and would get these jobs for me from time to time. The money was good for the...

    My Brother’s Howdy Doody Marionette

    All right, no surprise -- this Howdy Doody Marionette Freaked Me Out. I've never really liked puppets or marionettes.  I thought they were just creepy. Sometimes my dolls would creep me out as well. But I digress . . .  Way back in the 1950's, my brother got a Howdy...

    The Dead Speak — And Sometimes Play Piano

    Let's begin with a couple of definitions -- I know, the former teacher in me is coming out . . .  When you pick up voices that's an EVP = Electronic Voice Phenomena. It's a disembodied voice imprinted on a recording device that was not audible to the ear at the time...

    It May Be My Imagination

    But it seems too real -- I heard it . . . and so did my precious Yorkie. I bought some "ghost hunting" equipment. Nothing fancy, just some tools to discover who and/or what is in my house. It's one thing to be aware of "ghosts" in my house and another thing to have it...

    Different Types Of “Hauntings”

    Spirit Box Warning

    As with any device you choose to use -- a digital recorder, a camera, tarot cards, spirit box, crystals, candles, etc. -- if you're feeling afraid, please don't use it. Some "spirits" may not be loving. Some messages may be frightening. That's why it is important for...

    Have You Heard Of The Dybbuk Box?

    Yeah . . . That box, sold at auction on eBay and was said to be haunted. Wasn't there a book and a film about that creepy old thing? It's a wine cabinet -- a dybbuk box and also spelled "dibbux". It's said to be haunted by a dybbuk. That makes sense for a dybbuk to...

    Have You Seen A Ghost?

    That's what we want . . . or is it! A great image of ectoplasmic goo that is transforming right before our very eyes into a human form. I was over on Twitter the other day and a "person to follow" suggestion was a woman author with a menopausal character who sees...
