We moved into our new place in May. Been perfectly fine with nothing out of the ordinary until yesterday, the day I hung the clothes up. uhoh.gif

Got a really eerie feeling when I went down there to get them. Took the clothes (all vintage stuff. Very old post office uniform jacket, old hunting jackets and a college football jacket) to my brothers place a few hours ago. Went down there a little bit ago to get some packing materials and feels normal again.

Right next to the rack on top of a stack of boxes is an old telephone (40's rotary) I picked up a number of years ago and have been meaning to get it re-wired so I can plug it into a modern phone jack. Well, my wife was in the kitchen which is directly above the spot in the basement where I had the phone and the rack of clothes. I was in the garage un-clogging the leaves my lawn vacuum and she comes out looking scared and with obvious concern in her voice. She asks me to come into the kitchen and then asks if I hear that. I listen and hear the distinct ringing of an old telephone right below us through the heat vent in the floor. It was very loud too. I grew up with a phone like this so I can tell this from say, clanking in the ducts or something. No, this was that phone. Not plugged in or anything. Can't even be plugged in with the old-style 4 prong jack anyway. Freaked me out. I was scared to go down there but I wanted to get photos and descriptions done TODAY. Finished and then folded them up, put them in a big box and brought them to my brother's house for storage until the auctions end and it's time to ship. lookaround.gif

Speaking of the dead...

Did anyone see today's auction of JFK memorabilia?

http://www.rrauction.com/

I had hoped to pick up one of his ties. There was one by Chipp and another by Jordan Marsh. I was toying with a max bid of $500. The auctions are now closed but earlier they had the max online bids: one was at $1700 and the other at $2300. That doesn't include the 20% commission either.

I think I might have posted about it a couple years ago when we were talking about a death box or something somebody had found, but my experience was around 6-7 years ago.When I was still working at the Salvation Army I brought home a box of records and a folder with a birth certificate, photos, quarantine notice, etc was stuffed inside. Glanced through them and didn't think much of it. Some very strange and creepy stuff started happening after that until I ditched the stuff at a local antique mall. After that nothing strange has happened until last night. Gave me the chills for sure.

I would have actually be scared to buy that if I saw the blood stains.

If it was, it'd probably say so somewhere on the belt... What's imprinted on the inside?
