Staunton Theater Ghost Story

 

The Gypsy 4 Theater of Staunton was once an Opera House. A fire broke out in the mid 1900’s and significant damage was done to the building.

According to a former projectionist, very strange things have happened there.  Once while threading a movie the person’s eight inch braid was lifted straight up in the air.

A young blond girl, dressed in white and about eight years old was sitting on the pallet playing with the projectionist’s hair!  She silently laughed and vanished.  The projectionist’s mother

claimed to have run ins with the girl also, and she is a skeptic concerning paranormal sitings.

I found this ghost story on Ghosts of America online publication.

 

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

I have mentioned several times that my naturalist husband is uploading bird sightings to Cornell University.  Yesterday he told me he is ranked 10th in the country for this information.  In a number of blogs I wrote he is uploading over 2000 files.

I don’t know how I got that so wrong!  He has already uploaded 15,000 files and says he has over 30,000!  Wow!

Staunton Ghost Story

Staunton is located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley about ten miles from The Blue Ridge Parkway.  It is a town rich in history and some of it is supernatural.  Among the haunts are a 1890 train wreck , civil war stories and unsolved murders.

At the train station Myrtle Knox was fatally wounded when the sleeper car derailed.  Her opera troupe was napping when the incident occurred.  She lost  one of her legs below the knee, her shoulder was dislocated, an arm broken, and a piece of wood severed the femoral artery in her leg causing her to bleed to death.

Supposedly her spirit haunts the tracks and people have reported seeing her peer into the Pullman Diner which is now closed.

I found this story on One Writer’s Way online.

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I spend a lot of time in front of the kitchen sink washing dishes.  We are one of the extremely few houses in America that does not have a dishwasher.  I really don’t mind.  I grew up with one and we had to thoroughly clean the dishes, load the dishwasher and then put the dishes away.

I wash the dishes and put them in the rack.  End of story.  I like it better that way but sometimes I do complain about how much time I spend at the sink.

My husband said why don’t you just lay the food out on the floor and yell come and get it!

Not a bad idea!  Then I would only have to mop a little!  Another great “modest proposal from the Word Man!
