Apparently my house fairy is messing with me tonight! I ordered a new set of casters for my mobile cutting table. They arrived today. I opened the box, two plastic bags. One with the casters the other with the "sleeve", for lack of a better work for the cylinder that the caster rod slips into. Well......i propped up one side of my table and now I can only find my casters! WTH???? BOTH bags were on my kitchen table where I Opened the box! I have searched high and low for the missing bag. Sheesh....one of the old casters cracked in two today so I was glad to recieve the replacements. Now i am on 3 wheels until I locate the bags. Dangit!

So that's where my knitting bag is! The house fairy hid it. Sure hope she puts it where I can find it in the morning. I've got a new pretty yarn with sequins I'm working on!

Oh, BTW, my son is 40 and now the proud owner of a Hot Wheels yo-yo.
Love this story!

In 1965 my family moved into a house which was built in 1923. We were told before we bought it, a previous owner had passed away in the front bedroom that overlooked the street. Whenever this spirit would get angry there would be such an odor that was horrid - it was not the smell of something dead, but it did smell like a woman bleeding. My poor father tore the place apart trying to find the source of the smell. But after a year or so we finally just figured it was the spirit. Well, my grandmother was coming from Kansas to visit with her new husband and she was to stay in that room. And I was up in the room making the bed when the odor started. Went down stairs and told my mom we needed to do something. So she went upstairs, stood in the middle of the room and said if she did not behave herself while her mother was visiting she would sell the house to a family with 5 small boys. We never had a problem after that.

In 1989 my husband and I bought a house in So. CA that was built in 1923 - to our knowledge no one passed away in it - but I do have times when things disappear for days and weeks. Last month it seemed to be out of hand and I was ready to go crazy, and then I stood in the middle of the family room and announced to our visiting spirit that if it did not behave and return my missing items I was going to sell the house to a family full on young children. And I am not kidding, everything that was missing did turn up. One item was my husband's MP3 player which turned up on the floor of my car behind the driver's seat. Since my husband does not drive my car very often and his player cannot be used in my car, neither of us can figure out how it ended up there. I was so thrilled it turned up because he doesn't buy the cheap ones.

Sometimes you just need to speak firmly to those pesky spirits to get them to behave.

Mine was very busy last night. Felt like a kitten walking over my lower back, with a couple of tugs as if to pull the sheet higher.

I have a little old lady in my rocking chair from time to time, but she doesn't take/move anything--the Borrowers do that.

My angel must have a great sense of humor. I thought I had lost my checkbook. Remember riding in the backseat of our truck and putting it in the pocket behind the drivers seat. My DH and I looked for months in the truck, looking everywhere. I was forced to cancel my checking acct ($35 fee). Guess what I found - two months later. Right where I thought it was. Also lost my walking foot. Looked for days for that and of course when I bought a new one, found it right where I thought it should be. Keeps life interesting!
