Shadowy Visitor

By
Home Inspector with Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC

Last night at the church Halloween party, this guy showed up wearing a Jurgensen jersey and weird make up.

He had a ghost story to tell.

He came equipped with his own candle and insisted on the lights being turned out.  He said "fire summons fear."

The story was very real, too real in fact.  It involved the Civil War battlefield nearby, a house called the Old Faithful Inn, and a young lady named Abigail.

It seems his tale is not a ghost "story."  It is still happening every new moon.

And the "story" really is scary!  And plausible.

Truly, I believe it's still going on.

After the story concluded, just as the kids thought it was over, a strange thing happened.

Abigail came for him.

Obviously possessed, his voice changed, he became stiff and then uncontrolled, and foam came from his mouth.

Yes, the foam was real because nobody saw him put anything into his mouth!  Nobody, and the room was full.  He coughed and gagged, spewing big, bubbly foam!

The possession must have been real too.

Usually, at midnight and the night of the new moon, this shadowy visitor goes to Abigail's house (which is only a stone foundation at this point).

This time Abigail came for him instead.

He loves her.

Great hair, by the way!  I hear some kids are back to wetting their beds again.  Oh well...

The story really was fun Van (Tanya?).  And truly plausible.  The possession sealed the deal.

Jay, Do you have a Kilmer jersey to go with your Jurgensen?  I spent some time living in Woodbridge in the mid 70s and got to one bone chilling game and watch them play Roman Gabriel and the Eagles.  Bill

Morning Jay bed wetting is back now and you gave them nightmares for some time to come.  Wished I could have been there to see that display.

Wow, you look so serious.  How much did that hairdo cost?  Sounds like a fun evening.

They don't sell them Bliz!  That was at the end of Gabriel's career.  He wasn't very good then, but likely still good enough to beat them!

It was a display for sure James.  Bed wetting, bad dreams - fun, fun, fun!

Debbie - I had the mousse gel at home and the little tube of hair paint was $4.  Looks professional?  I spent hours on it (5 minutes)...  Doesn't look anywhere near as good as yours though.

They are away Fred.  And, interestingly, not until 4:30.  This is the first division game.

Jay - Sorry I missed the encounter. Sounds quite enchanting. BTW, I thought about you and waved as I drove down I-66 last Sunday, but I don't think you saw me : )

Randy - and this oddity roams the earth year round...    ;>)

Every year Doug.  It is really a social, with the annual Chile Cook Off.  Everyone brings a chile dish and we have winners.  After is the Trunk or Treat where people decorate their cars and the kids trick or treat car to car.

John - you were within a mile of my house!  Exit 44.
