Are your parents as cool...make that as crazy as mine?
Once, when we were young and bugging them for that Halloween thrill...
They really got us good!
Drug us out of the bed, in the middle of the night
Put us in the car, pajamas-sleepy eyed-and scared
Told us they wanted to show us something, we'd never forget
Then drove for miles and miles into the country where no one else dared!
Now three children
Alone in the dark
In the back seat
On a lost road
In the middle of the night
Be still, don't move
Be quiet, don't make a sound
Then dad said, here it comes...mom's muffled scream
Don't move!!!!!!!! Be quiet!!!!!!!!!
Then we saw it....a huge ball of light
Swinging from side to side.then gliding towards us
Then it stopped.....don't move!!!!!!!! Be quiet!!!!!!!!
Then it came right up to the car....
We all screamed!
Dad laughed....I think mom peed her pants!
It was gone instantly.
The spook light....The ghost light.......
Haunting the area for over a century...
*True story......this happened 45 years ago and dad was right...I never forgot it...I had no idea there would be anything online about this...I googled it just for fun and there is tons of stuff about it...seems it is still unsolved...legends are lost Indian lovers..children or miners carrying lanterns etc...some suggest headlights but was seen before autos......hmmmmm? Has become quite a tourist attraction evidently..:-)
