An Irish Ghost Story for Halloween

An Irish Ghost Story for Halloween

DSC_0006

IRISH GHOST STORY
This event happened a while ago in Dublin, and even though it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it’ said to be true.
John Bradford, fogguy

a Dublin University student, was on the side of a lonely road hitchhiking on a very dark night in the midst of a mighty storm. He could see only a few feet in front of him. Suddenly, he saw a car

carfog

slowly coming towards him. The car stopped, and John, desperate for shelter, wrenched open the door and climbed in. He became aware that the engine was not running, and there was no one steering the vehicle. The car began moving. John looked at the road ahead and saw that the car was approaching a

foggybendroad

bend in the road. Terrified, he began to pray, begging for his life. Then, just before
the car hit the bend, a hand appeared out of nowhere through the window and turned the wheel. John, paralyzed
with terror, watched as the hand

ghosthand

stretched through the window, but never touched or harmed him. Shortly after,...

John saw the lights of a pub pubfog

appear down the road. Gathering his strength, he jumped out of the car and ran
to it. Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and started recounting the horrible experience. A silence settled on the pub. But when the patrons saw that he was sober and that his terror was genuine, they paid attention to his story. Then the door opened, and two people twopeoplefog

walked in from the dark and stormy night. Like John, they were soaked and out of breath. Looking around, they saw John sobbing mansobbing

at the bar. One turned to the other and said, “Look Paddy.....there's that bloomin’ idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it!...!!!

Life is a picnic,As you can see,As long as we have,
You and me.

DSC_0007

Throw in a swing,And a day full of sun,We'll show you,How to have some fun.

DSC_0008

Add some good food, And put on a smile,Don't be in a hurry,Stay for awhile.

DSC_0010

Laugh and giggle,Eat till you're stuffed.Have some dessert,You can't get enough.

Family and friends,Make good picnic mates,
Because life is too short,To have empty plates.

A short story for the rest of the post: EVER SINCE I WAS A CHILD, I'VE ALWAYS HAD A FEAR OF SOMEONE UNDER MY BED AT NIGHT.SO I WENT TO A SHRINK AND TOLD HIM.
DSC_0016

'I've got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there's somebody under it. I'm scared. I think I'm going crazy.'

DSC_0018

Just put yourself in my hands for one year,' said the shrink.Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.

DSC_0014

How much do you charge? Eighty dollars per visit, replied the doctor.

DSC_0017

'I'll sleep on it,' I said

DSC_0020

Six months later the doctor met me on the street. 'Why didn't you come to see me about those fears you were having?' he asked.

DSC_0021

Well, Eighty bucks a visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought myself a new car!

DSC_0023

Is that so! With a bit of an attitude he said, and how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?

DSC_0022

He told me to cut the legs off the bed! - Ain't nobody under there now!!!

FORGET THE SHRINKS..  TALK TO A BARTENDER!..You have my friend Charlie and the internet to thank for that story..LOL

A favorite spot on the path is on the deck where you can see for miles. The city of Columbus is even visible on clear days.

If the photo was better and maybe a little less hazy you could see Columbus,Ohio from this vantage point.
