Subject: RE: Help: Follow the Drinking Gourd meanings
That house is in Fayette Maine. I was visiting my friend, and, he was showing me some work he was doing in a small room. The door was closed, and there was no one else around. As we talked, suddenly, I heard a strange sound. I turned around, and rolling across the floor toward me, was a penny-- OUT OF A BLANK WALL! I commented on this odd happening, and he told me it happens all the time, that he had a jar half full of such coins. He showed it to me, and there were indeed many old coins. Now, this I saw with my own eyes..no second hand info here. According to him, there have been many strange happenings there, such as a rocking chair which rocks by itself, a guitar that makes strumming sounds, and pots and pans being rattled around in the middle of the night. He is not one to make up stories, in fact, he is a devout Catholic and does not believe in spooks. However, one of the children saw an entity sitting on the stairs and really freaked out. At his wife's request, they had the place blessed and the entity has since moved on.
