My Ghosts in a Mansion Dream

I am in a beautiful old mansion with some of my family.  It has beautiful huge rooms.  The rooms that stand out to me the most are a formal setting room, with 3 huge, beautiful windows (the kind that have the built in cushioned benches covered in red), a fireplace, and a lovely ornate chandelier.  The view from the windows is of a hospital.  There is also the room with a grand piano, a formal dining room, a guest bedroom that is split into 2 sections, and another room that is somewhat like a bar/lounge.  It consists of round tables, comfy seating, a bar and a jukebox.  I start out in the setting room, showing the family around, then on to the dining room and the piano room.  Suddenly, someone says they hear a noise coming out of the guest bedroom.

I enter the guest bedroom, which as I said, consists of 2 sections…a “living” area of the bedroom if you will (couch, chair, etc) and then the actual bedroom part is thru a doorway.  I go to the doorway, and hear children.  Funny thing is there are no children in the house at that time.  Suddenly, I hear a little voice…he said his name was Nathan.  He told me he was a spirit and had died in the house many many centuries ago, and wanted me to see him.  He was on the bed, cute as can be…a toe headed blonde boy who looked to be about 5 or 6 years old.  He had friends he said, and they were all nice kids.  But, he said to be careful of the ones in the lounge area.  They were older and sometimes not very nice.

I move into the lounge area room, where I did have the encounter with the older and sometimes not very nice spirits.  (There were about 4 or 5 of them.) Turns out they were not evil spirits, or mean, just ornery.  They liked to play tricks to “scare” people they said.  I informed them I was entertaining folks and we were going to use that room, so to try and be on their best behavior.

Well, the company is enjoying their snacks and drinks, and the ornery spirits are being quiet….but when I went to take a drink of my cocktail, my straw did not work.  I pulled it out and it had been tied in a knot at the bottom.  I heard a little laughing sound….those ornery ones decided to prank me.  “Oh, really funny!”  I said…and the funny thing was, it was funny and I ended up laughing with them.

Forehead wrinkles

That moment when you put your hair in a towel after a shower, look in the mirror and realize….hey, the forehead wrinkles are almost nonexistant! Who needs to spend money on plastic surgery which generates all that speculation? Stars, just keep your freshly washed hair in your bath towel all day….then EVERYONE will know why you look different, and you’ll save yourself a bundle o money.

My giant gorilla on the porch dream

There was a giant gorilla (or bear) loose in the neighborhood.  It ended up on the front porch of the house I grew up in and eventually came through the front door.  There were little kids upstairs playing, so to protect them, I took them into the attic.  As I whispered stories to them to keep them entertained, we noticed a man sitting on the roof outside the attic window.  Then, the giant gorilla (or bear) left.

Suddenly I am in a different house listening to Peggy Lee on the stereo.  I went into the bathroom….oh, it had a beautiful blue clawfoot tub set above the floor on a pedestal.  There was a sliding wood door that hooked shut.  Outside the window, there were 2 coyotes trying to kill a pig at the neighbor’s.  Immediately, my brother threw 2 chickens from the refrigerator into the neighbors yard and rescued all the animals.  The coyotes got loose, we put a stray red doberman mix inside the fence and warned all the neighbors about the coyote.  Then, my brother delivered the pig’s babies.

I really need to stop eating cheese before bed.
