Ghost Story Submissions!

Johnny a.k.a. "Big Daddy"

As she walked toward the barn she noticed some lights running. She found it strange since everything is unplugged after we close down.

Freaky...

Johnny a.k.a. "Big Daddy"

Ok - the freakiest thing just happened to me - wifey and I, after putting our son to bed, were sitting in the living room.All of a sudden, a glass on the table in the next room . . . wait for it . . . wait for it . . .

The glass just shattered!Being a fan of Ghost Hunters, I immediately began to ask questions such as, "Are there any spirits with us" and "If there is someone present, please make a banging sound."
