Hi everyone — sending a quick note to let you know and thank Susan Cooper for the honor of being her guest over at “Finding Our Way Now” with the contribution of the following story.
It’s a story I wrote last year and begins like this.
Ghost Stories From an Old House: #Story
It was the home where my mother grew up in a small beach town in Virginia, situated on main street and only 2 blocks from downtown.
You wouldn’t think the house would be “haunted” just to look at it. And, oh, what would it say, if it could talk? “I remember that family ― the small, frail man and the large, strong endearing woman. She understood me.”
I hope you’ll pay Susan a visit, leave a comment and share the love.
Pat from the ol’ kitchen table
I imagine Virginia has the presence of many ghosts from Jamestown to Revolutionary War to Civil War. Personally I feel there is more efficacy in the dead being with us than aliens from other worlds.
I agree, Carl, the energies in those places are strong as well as out here, in the west, in Native American places such as Wounded Knee. it’s the mystery of the unknown, though I think we’re getting close in discovering the possibilities of aliens with how far out in space we’re exploring. Thank you for stopping by – I’m glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
Well since I read Susan’s blog I am sure to see you over there and I cannot visit without leaving a comment which is better than visiting and leaving a dead dog…………..lol
Hi Joanne — thanks for stopping over here, too. I was happy to see you on Susan’s site and glad you enjoyed the story. It means a lot that you took the time to comment in both places, my friend. Take care and have a great week. 🙂
Wonderful ghost story Pat, I’ve left a comment on Susan’s blog. Great to see you back again my friend 🙂
Thanks, Sherri. I’m glad you enjoyed it and I saw your lovely comment on Susan’s blog. I like that you felt drawn in by the story and wanted more. As a writer, you know that’s exactly what you’re trying to accomplish. It means a lot that you got so much out of it. Now, I’m looking forward to your Halloween story, my friend. 🙂
You are very welcome Pat! I did want more! Ahh…thank you, hopefully sooner rather than later, ha 🙂
You bet, Sherri, and yes hopefully sooner. I’ve got some ideas — we’ll see. 🙂
Sounds intriguing this Pat 😀 You’ve started something here my friend, love it 😀
Hi Sherri — intriguing for me, as well, my friend. I hope I got the curiosity juices going. Have a great weekend. 🙂
Thanks so much Pat, you too my friend, love the fun we’re having this week 😀
You bet, Sherri — always fun. 🙂
Just stopped over to Susan’s and left a comment Pat, really enjoyed all the spooky stories from the house, great post.
I just saw, Andrea. Thank you for stopping over at Susan’s and checking out some of my spooky stories. I’m so glad you enjoyed them — they would be good around a campfire shining a flashlight on my face or around a candlelit kitchen table. So perfect for this time of year. Have a great weekend, my friend. 🙂
What a great story, Pat! I loved the memories of childhood you shared!
Hi Andy — thank you for stopping by. I’m glad you liked the stories. They’re fun to remember those days of long ago. 🙂
