I've seen the Haunted Houses series on A&E and only two episodes really piqued my interest. One was on Salem and they were discussing different buildings and there was this one building that housed shelves and shelves of what looked like stationary sized boxes with people's last names on them - documents from the Salem Witchcraft Trials. I was drawing and listening at the same time and just happened to look up and see my last name on one of the boxes....my great, great grandfather homesteaded from, Mass., but there is no documentation we could find about his wife and the two boys were raised in an orphanage here.

The other was about the Myrtle's Plantation in Louisiana, considered the most haunted house in America. Attached is a description of the place and the last segment is of the slave girl Chloe who accidentally killed the children she cared for. It is an interesting home indeed, but a tourist took this photo and some say it is a ghost picture of Chloe. You read it and look at it and be the judge.

POA also means price on application, meaning you have to contact the seller or seller's agent to get a price. Sometimes it's used when the price hasn't been finalized.

Thursday 007, There are other pictures of little children as well. It's one of my favorite episodes and we plan on visiting there when we retire. Just for grins: I made up this ghost story to keep the shorties from running around and wrecking the newly renovated rooms in our rental house. His name was Dark Stanley and DH took a picture of me in a Halloween mask and long coat and faded it in photoshop. It looked fake but had enough eeriness to scare the pants off of them. They never left our side after that, nor ventured into the house alone. I finally told them the truth last summer. It got a lot of laughs but worked like a charm at the time.

No, not in this case. The house was listed for $119,500. It had the most incredible original fireplaces. The one in the creepy bedroom had a fireplace with beautiful mosaic tiles. It also had an amazing barn with a belfry attached to the house. When I asked the realtor she said she thought the owner was in a nursing home but wasn't sure. Loved the house but not the town.

The human mind tries to make sense out of randomness and this includes finding human-like faces. With all of the light, shadows, reflections in this windows from natural sources.....it seems that this will happen from time to time where it appears to be a face, but is just an illusion.

Yes I understand but there is more than one face which makes it even more curious to me. Usually you will see only one image, but you have to admit the picture is really creepy.

Some one at work saw the evil face as well in the lower right hand corner. I can also see the cat.
