A belated but heartfelt welcome to you!
I'm looking forward to hearing lots more about your gang, and I love your ghost tory, too.
I had one, I'm pretty sure, in an old house I lived in a number of years ago. I think it was a very proper spinster lady who lived her whole life in the house -- she only did things when I had male friends over! It was really scary a few times (like when I had a tug of war with a door one night that she apparently wanted open...
) but for the most part I thought it was quite cool. And in an odd way, I felt like she was looking out for me.
All the best,
