Over the years I have had 2 friends who didn't know each other tell me
they saw ghosts at Gettysburg, I seem to recall down around LRT.
Both of them told me these stories while they were sober.
I know... You are right. The sobriety only damaged the credibility of
I would have believed them more if they weren't sober.
In my years I have lived in actively haunted houses, seen ghosts, heard
them, and felt them so I believe in them. You become a believer when you
see one for the first time.
I have always tried to keep an eye out for ghosts at Gtysbg but have never
seen anything. Very disappointing.
I am drinking my coffee at the moment so no need to question my sobriety.
later it may be questionable.
[A bit off-topic but I'll be brief: There is a famous ghost in the East
Room of the White House. It is a playful poltergeist who likes to pull on
women's purse straps. I was with a tour group in there one time and as
usual I was standing around bored as hell and somebody SHOVED me from behind.
I was physically pushed. I turned around to apologize in case I had bumped
into someone. There was nobody closer than 10 ft. I turned back around
and it happened again. It happened some 1/2 dz times. And it wasn't
Lincoln. Well, at least this trip to the White House wasn't boring.]
Your Most Obedient Servant,

The ghost tours are a lot of fun, if for nothing else than going to
Gettysburg in the winter, there isn't much else to do as the battlefield
early. I just don't like walking on Steinwehr Avenue anymore, say from
Tommy's to Kilwins for desert now because there is that one ghost tour
(I think it is a yellow house and has the Zoltar machine in the front)
always accosts you to sign up for their tour and the others take up so
much room on the street and move for no one coming that you always have
walk into oncoming traffic to get around them.
A few years ago, I asked one of these shills if he got his training
for the porno houses in Times Square - shut him up long enough to get past
(not to mention cracking up the friend I was with). Honestly. They
should be restricted as to how much of the sidewalk they can take up
I've never taken a ghost tour - and unless I completely lose my mind, I
never will. There are enough ghosts down there without making up more.
