I'm beginning to think that with all my rooting around in my family tree, I'm stirring up something. Maybe the veil between this world and the next is getting thinner. Let me start off by saying that we have lived in our current house for 10 years with no strange phenomena. 3 days ago I was getting ready for work in our 2nd story bathroom, and heard voices that sounded soft and melodious - no one was around. Then 2 days ago, I was in the laundry room and heard a deep male voice (not at all like my husband's voice) - again no one was around. Then last night I was sitting at the computer and I swear I smelled a pipe with sweet tobacco for about a minute. No body smokes in our house, and no candles were lit. I felt a bit uncomfortable at first, then I got to thinking that maybe some of my ancestors that I've been reading about are checking in on me. Then it was kinda neat.
