Grandma's haunted house from a while ago.
I have an update.
I was walking into the grocery store near my house and at that moment walking out was my cousin Jerry. This was surprising since I never see him anywhere except at family get-togethers, much less at the grocery. I had written the earlier blog post mere hours before and I told him what I'd written. (He was one of the cousins telling me the house was haunted.)
He smiled and said, "It wasn't just Grandma."
They told their tale of spectral visitation and after a few minutes, Grandma asked casually...
A bit more looking and she came in from the outside, holding a flashlight and a stick on which was affixed a doll's head. That was what she had been waving outside the window for my cousins' benefit.
I guess between Grandma and Aunt Mary they must have had quite a cousin-scaring operation gong on.
Pity I wasn't a lighter sleeper and didn't have more sleepovers there.
