Hunting For God's Acre

It's closing in on Halloween. Spooks, ghouls, and ghost stories abound. I love this stuff...

Raging Mom and I have been trading some ghost stories over the past few days. There's also been the discussion of a couple of graveyards in the area that just don't seem quite right. We've decided that we should check them out. So far, she's been the only one to find them... I spent about half an hour lookin' the other night, and found out I was probably a few miles off. No mind... I've always been told I'm a bit off.

Raging Mom heads out to do a bit of detecting... First visit, Charter Grove Cemetery. She'd heard that this place has very noticable fluctuations in temperature... and there are.

Next, I had told her about a cemetery that has a "glowing" headstone. It's not known as being haunted, and the headstone only glows if you come around a curve with your high beams on, but I've been told it's kinda creepy. 'Specially if you walk into the graveyard to locate the glowing stone. No it doesn't change as you walk, but the stone is that of a very young girl. Once at the stone, it's a great time to scare the everlovin' piss out of those with you!

Figuring this is worth checking out at this time of year, I talked with a few locals, and got some rough directions. After looking at some maps, and checking out the wrong area, we figured that it could very well be Bald Hill Cemetery. Looks cool, doesn't it? However, we haven't found it, yet.

Raging Mom did make a trip out to that area last night, and while she didn't find the mini Golgotha, she did get a fright. She took a couple of pictures.. one very peculiar. It reminds me of some of the pics I've seen from Bachelors Grove Cemetery, near Chicago. Especially this one.

Methinks I'll be going out there tonight, if only to chain the gate that she left open. I'll keep you posted, and I think I'm going to post different ghost stories until fright night.

Remember, it's all just fun. At least, until someone fills their pants... then it's just funNY.

I love ghost stories and our area is full of them. One really good one about a haunted grove where a witch was supposedly buried too . . . But, I do not have the nads to go through cemetaries at night. Sorry, nope. I have an aversion to being followed by the unknown!

Ghost Stories are the best!! I have a haunted area I know about, but I have never had the guts to check it out. I had some friends do it when we were younger and they got scared to death. (These were grown men scared out of their gourds, lol.) If I ever get enough guts to go there at night... ill let you know.
