The little ghost who lives with Pam and Skip Hauth in Lewiston seems to have a fondness for candy and even a sense of humor.

Pam, director of the Lewiston Museum, sat down in the dining room of her beautiful old Victorian home on Cayuga Street to talk about life with a ghost in the house.

QUESTION: So, when did all this ghostly activity start?

ANSWER: Fairly soon, actually, after we moved here, my husband came home from a business trip with the little mint candies that are beside the cash register in restaurants. He knows I love them, so he brought me handfuls of the things. We put them in a little bowl, set them on the coffee table next to us while we were having coffee after dinner.

Q: Then what happened?

A: We came down the next morning to read the paper and have our coffee, and that little dish that had all the candy in it was empty ... and he said to me, “What, did you get hungry in the middle of the night or what?” I said, “I don't know what you're talking about. I didn't eat that candy. Tell me you did!” We looked everywhere. That candy was nowhere to be found. We decided it probably wasn't a mouse because a mouse would make a mess, chewing it up and leaving little crumbs all over everything. It just was gone. (She described two other incidents ,including one where a tiny candy bar was taken from a candy jar and moved to another cabinet. On another morning, a handful of malted milk balls were lined up on the counter.)
