This Week's Ghost is...

The Back Seat Ghost.

One day in 1959 Mrs. Mabel Chinnery went for a trip to the cemetery to visit her mother's grave. It may seem a bit strange but she brought along her camera because she wanted to take pictures of the gravestone. Then she decided to take a picture of her husband while he sat alone in the car. However, when the pictures were developed Mr. Chinnery was not alone in the car. He'd picked up a hitch hiking ghost to sit in the back seat.
Mrs. Chinnery vows the woman in the back seat is the ghost of her mother.

Next time you're out playing photographer in a graveyard be sure to check your back seat he he he.

Wow. But her mother's ghost looks kind of like a man. ;)

I was thinking the same thing! But then I've seen some older women that, well, have that look lol!

OK . . . I have a sort-of creepy graveyard story. Last year, we visited Hollywood Cemetery--it's a Civil War, ancient, creepy, beautiful "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" kind of graveyard. Me, my best friend, my significant other, my baby boy.

So we took tons of pictures and the baby kept toddling over to this one headstone and sitting on it. Patting the stone. It was only when we developed the pictures that we noticed it was the grave of someone with the same birthday as his . . . like 150 years apart.
