And now for some fun!

Do you believe in ghosts?  Lots of people do.  Look at the 1959 photo below.  Mabel Chinnery had just spent the day at the cemetery visiting her mother’s grave. To finish off a roll of film she snapped a picture of her husband who was seated in the front seat of the car waiting on her.  She had the pictures developed and I’m betting her skin started to crawl.  In one of the pictures her dead mother is sitting in the back seat of the car.  Shudder.  Picture and story at http://paranormal.about.com/od/ghostphotos/ig/Best-Ghost-Photos/The-Back-Seat-Ghost.htm


This picture was taken in 1967 at Gettysburg and shows a Civil War soldier at Devil’s Den.  (Picture from Secret Crypt.com) 



This picture absolutely gives me the willies!  This is a World War I English squadron attached to the HMS Daedalus training facility.  After the group had its picture made, they spotted someone who shouldn’t be there.  Two days before the picture was taken, Freddy Jackson had been killed by a flying propeller.  They’d had his funeral the very day the photo was taken.  See the man behind the guy in the closeup?  Everyone identified him as Freddy Jackson.



Okay, enough about ghosts.  Would you like to win something to read?  I’m giving away a PDF copy of A New Dream by yours truly.  To win, follow my blog and leave a comment telling me you did so.  If you already follow, leave a comment and say so.  If you’d like to double your chances of winning, tell someone else about me.  Post something about me on FB, your blog, at Goodreads, etc.  Then leave a comment telling me where you posted.  That’s it!

I've seen a lot of different photos like the one with the soldier. It's amazing how objects can cast or capture a similar pose of a human face. Even when I've stared into a fire I can sometimes see objects form, its quite interesting. I love believing in the paranormal and hope that one day is will be discovered as being real, I'd love to know that others exist on another plain, I think it would make death being part of life not so dreadful as it comes close to us.

Happy Halloween!
