Halloween Hauntings in Williamsburg

BOO!

And Happy Halloween to all you "trickses" or treaters!

I have been a busy bee... While I haven't posted in a few days I have been reading my favorite blogs every day. Sometimes even leaving my two cent comments on them. Speaking of two cents, what is it with people shopping for furniture in October? Is there a constitutional amendment against it too? It was by far one of the slowest months I have ever experienced, and not just in Newport News, my old store in Richmond was slow too. Oh well, November is another month, and another opportunity to make the budget (my own and the stores')...

My daughter came down for a short visit over the weekend, and a small group of us went into Colonial Williamsburg for the "Ghost Tour". It's an hour and a half walk through CW with a guide that shares stories about the hauntings and history of the old city. I kept looking for the blue glows and lights that our guide referred to several times, to no avail... The stories were very entertaining and informative, and it was nice to hear tales of the history of Williamsburg (and the surrounding areas) that were not Civil War related... My friends in Richmond certainly know what I am talking about... I have always been a history buff, and always had a hard time with the focus on civil war history that abounds in the capitol city... I mean, I know it's filled with it, but come on folks, there is a lot more history to be touted and proud of in Richmond and the surrounding towns... Anyway, so we are strolling through the town, listening to our leader, when out of the corner of my eye, in one of the "most haunted" buildings I catch a blue glow out of one of the windows on the side of the old structure. I tap Jim on the shoulder and point over to the darkened home - just to make sure I am not imagining. He verifies my observation and we fall back from the group a little - which we had been doing some anyway, as Jims back was bothering him a little - to check it out. We work our way down the street a little so we can see more clearly into the side window... and... you won't believe what we witnessed....

We didn't take any pictures and have no proof, but coming from the inside of this historically preserved, and reconstructed home, was the most amazing thing...

Tune in tomorrow for the revealing and horrifying answer...

Over on "Out" for today, from Haunted Williamsburg (Toano), VA!!!
and Happy Halloween again to all!

The tension builds and then we have to wait. That's no fun. I've always been an immediate gratification type of person. Now I probably won't sleep waiting to find out what you saw...

People aren't buying furniture because they are saving up for those crazy costumes :) Now you will get some sales because some lady will want a whole new livingroom for her husband making an ass at the club halloween party. Make the sale! LOL
