To The Poconos
We lived in
When we were young our parents had a unique sense of humor, they would tell us that they were from outer space and that their space ship was stored in our attic. I think they thought it was funny to watch us sneak up to the attic looking for the ship. Also aliens and space travel seemed to be a hit topic for television shows starting with “My Favorite Martian,” “Lost In Space,” and eventually, “Star Trek.” So it was no wonder that Donna was fascinated by the idea of aliens and, when “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” was released in theaters, the fascination was magnified!
It was during that time that this particular incident took place. Having just seen Close Encounters, Donna thought it would be really cool to go away in a space ship with aliens just like the ones in the movie. Donna, Diana, and my daughter and I were the only ones in the house while our parents were up the street visiting with our aunt and uncle. We were sitting in the living room when all of a sudden we heard a loud, humming noise and then bright lights shining in the front window. Then the next thing we knew, the lights were in the back of the house. Then they were in the front of the house. They went back and forth from front to back a few times and then just disappeared. When we first saw the light in the front window we thought it might have been a car, although the car would have had to levitate to get that close to the front window. However, when it went around the house to the back window and then quickly came around front again, we knew it wasn’t a car. We had no idea what it was but for a time afterwards, Donna kind of gave up the idea of thinking that aliens and space ships were cool!
During our time in the Sky View Lake
house, between 1976 and 1987, our parents would find their family growing up and
moving away, and at times moving back for a while.
Terry was single again by this
time and although she made another attempt at relocating to the east coast, she
was always drawn back to
Early in 1987 Donna and I and my two
children were the only ones left at home with my parents.
I had just started a new job working with Donna in
By the end of
1987 our parents were the only two left in the
Even with everyone scattered about and
living on their own, the visits from the ghosts did not stop.
Instead of having one house to visit, they would
make their way back and forth across the country.
They would drop in on Terry out
Donna had several
visits to her townhouse in
She would often hear someone up in the attic, moving her boxes across the floor or she would feel a presence her bedroom and she actually saw someone moving about the room one night. It was more like a shadow than a solid figure but it was enough to scare her and keep her from falling asleep for a while.It was obvious that Donna’s townhouse was not completely level because her bathroom door would often slowly close by itself. This was explainable because of the way the house was built; what was not explainable was when the door would slam shut by itself. This happened on several occasions and fortunately for Donna, it happened once while Terry was visiting. Even though all of us had lived through these experiences for the better part of our lives, it’s always reassuring to have someone else witness them with you
