I friend of mine asked me if my story about selling the haunted house was true, and I answered…Every Word!   I know some people don’t believe in ghosts, but I do and I have my reasons – many of them.

Speaking of ghosts, I saw the most amazing video last week.  It was a jaw-dropper – stunning.  I would love to get a copy to share with all of you, but it doesn’t belong to me and was shown to me by a third party…a friend of mine.  We were having drinks at a Realtor function last Wednesday night.  She pulled out her phone to show me what another friend had emailed to her.  Said friend had been out on the battlefield with her young son.  It appeared to be evening.  They were at the site of Pickett’s Charge, and she had her video camera.  Her son started asking her to take pictures of the men there.  She didn’t see anyone in the area, but her son was very excited and begged her to videotape the men.  To keep him happy, she just started filming and scanned back and forth over the area he was pointing to.  She saw nothing – until she played the video back.

This is what was on the video – what I saw and replayed several times because it was just so amazing, amazing and unbelievable.  She had been panning the camera across open ground with a treeline in the background.  In front of and along the treeline, I would estimate at about 75 to 100 yards, there were several figures moving leisurely about.  They were totally white, not as in amorphous blobs, but seen on the video as complete and crystalline forms.  They were men with heads, bodies, arms, hands, legs, feet  – and they were moving…walking.   I saw this video a week ago, and the memory of it will not leave me.  I’m well aware its existence defies logic…but, what is logic?  According to the dictionary, logic is the science of correct or reliable reasoning.  So who has dictated what is correct?  What is reliable reasoning?  We used to think the world was flat…that was once thought correct and reliable.

Gettysburg Dedication Day is the annual anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.  This is held every year on November 19.  We always have a VIP speaker, a well-known politician, celebrity, etc.  In the past, we have had Colin Powell,  Sandra Day O’Connor, Tom Ridge, Tom Brokaw, William Rehnquist (when he was Supreme Court Chief Justice), Ken Burns and numerous other luminaries.  It was recently announced that director Steven Spielberg will be the Dedication Day speaker for November 19, 2012.  I expect Spielberg will be a huge draw to the always popular event.  I don’t always attend, but I may have to this year.  If you are coming, you should probably book a hotel asap if you plan to stay overnight.  I know it’s November, but Gettysburg is busy almost all months of the year, and it is beautiful in the fall.

Just a few things tonight…

~ I picked twelve pounds of raspberries today.  If you pick twelve pounds or more at Yellow Hill Farm right now, you get a 30% discount.  I have the farm’s link under Gettysburg.  There are tons of red raspberries, some gold and also still nice blackberries.  Works out to $2.32 a pound.  Take your children.  There were two little kids picking on the other side of my row.  Their mother was not within earshot and they were alternately singing and conversing while they picked.  After a few minutes of quiet, I heard little Grace say, “This will be a great memory for me – for years, and years and years.”  How astute for someone so young.  How could you not smile?

~ I got a bicycle and went for my first ride today, after the berry picking.  Had not been on a bike in, oh, about two decades.  I didn’t fall off or wreck it so I considered the event a big success.  It’s part of my new fitness regimen.

~ Think about donating to the American Red Cross to help hurricane and flood victims – www.redcross.org – doing good every day.
