Some of you folks know about the ghost that we have upstairs in the hall. We've all seen him, and he comes up and spooks us from time to time. I named him "Mr. Goodvibes" because he is so creepy when he decides to show up. He stomps up the hall and bangs his fist into our bedroom door in the middle of the night, he comes in and cops a feel on Debby every so often when she's at the sink putting on her makeup, he gives you a "freeeze" when you're walking alone in the hall in the dark. You feel cold...he does this, he does that. I ran into him the other night when I was getting home from a gig. I was walking up the hall and he came up to me and went right through me and I felt it. I actually kind of backed up a little and I said "Oh, excuse me..." and I kept going. Lately he's been throwing a fit. Just now I went upstairs to lay down for a few minutes and take a cat nap instead of sitting here in front of the computer and nodding off. He came in the bedroom and walked all the way around all 4 walls and knocked on each wall at the ceiling level in 5-foot intervals. I followed the sound. I think he's pissed because he knows what I'm getting ready to do. We have a ton of stuff. It's just stuff, ya know. Stuff that isn't being used but we haven't thrown away, Debby talks a great line about having a garage sale but it never happens, and stuff piles up. We have to do something with our stuff. I believe that if you put stuff in storage, you don't need it. So renting a storage space is not the answer. I discovered a hidden room upstairs about a year after we moved in here. You have to pull the bookshelf out of the wall that it's built into on the landing between the first and second stairways to get upstairs. Behind that bookshelf is a room, sealed off by 3 walls and the slope of the roof on one side that is partially floorless...if you crawl up into the ceiling, you can eventually get to the small attic...I hung a light in there and I put a plywood plank in there and a tarp, and Mr. Goodvibes went berzerk. The stuff I mentioned earlier happened after I did that. Well, our stuff is going to go in there and he knows what I'm thinking. That's his lair, and the hall upstairs is his bivouac. We're going to put the squeeze on Mr. Goodvibes and he is getting ready to put up a fight, I can tell. Stay tuned! It should get interesting. Cheers, WC1
