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.

Thank You!

Pat from the ol’ kitchen table

  1. 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. 🙂

  2. 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…………

    • 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. 🙂

    • 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. 🙂
