Last night, at approximately 7:20pm, I was sitting on the couch in my living room, when I heard someone knock at the door several times. Our new puppy, Glimmer, was asleep near my feet; our cat Charlie was asleep on our bed; my husband was not yet home from work.
I went to answer the door. When I opened it, there was no one there. I saw nothing outside, nor was anything on the door ledge between the inside door and the screen door. I then went outside to see if there was anyone on the street. The street was empty and quiet.
I went back inside, and then went to the dining room window to look outside. I saw a vehicle pull up to the curb, and thought it was my husband arriving home from work. I then went to the living room window to see if there was anyone else on the street. I saw no one. I then called Robyn to inform her of the event. While talking with her, I waited for my husband to come in; when he didn’t, I checked outside again – and realized that it was the neighbor’s car I had seen pulling up. I stated that to Robyn.
After going through a check-list of possible causes for the knocking, Robyn suggested that I run the voice recorder during the night, as this is the third time this type of event has occurred in the space of a week. I agreed with her. Unfortunately, by the time I got Glimmer into bed for the night, I was so tired that I forgot to set it up. So, I will be setting it up tonight.
I have not yet found any possible causes for these odd events. We have lived in this home for 14 years; I know every sound this house has. Whatever is happening… Well, maybe we’ll have to investigate it…
