Tonight I was over at a neighbour's, getting their internet up and running, when he happened to throw into the conversation that his sister used to live where I do now, and that her husband had hanged himself here.
Haunted? Well that would be a good enough reason for anything spirity to hang around!
Personally, I think it's merely a tall tale. For one thing, there's really nowhere to hang yourself from here, unless you're going to do it in full view of the neighbours from the verandah supports - or tie something to the stair rail, then climb out the tiny upstairs window to do so in full view of the main road through the suburb!
And that's simply way too much effort.
The house opposite though is a whole other story.... I wouldn't be surprised.
