Haunted by the Past

20160313_0001

No, not that kind of past!  The ghost kind of past!

Oh.

Well, sorry, I’ve been cleaning up my office and drowning in paper, so it seemed fitting.  ANYway, let’s see.

Haunted Chicago

Chicago is famous for a lot of things.  To ghost hunters, this is one haunted town.  There are books on the subject, ghost tours, and even a Meetup group dedicated to ghost hunting.  From the infamous Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre, to where Dillinger was shot, down south to Resurrection Mary and way up north to the hauntings along the lakefront across from the cemetery, this is one spooky city.

Remember, no Challenge tomorrow since it’s Sunday.  But next week, things heat up because not only is it the Challenge, but the RT Booklovers Convention in sunny Las Vegas and The Romance Studio’s companion Staying Home Party!  Stay tuned!

    Hi, Just dropping by from the Challenge – spending my non-blogging day visiting other blogs. I’m going to check out the blogs you linked.

    We live not far from St. Augustine, FL and go there for quick getaways or when we have neither the time nor the money for a “proper” vacation. We always do a ghost tour when we go, and enjoy it every time.

    1. Oh, I’ve seen pictures of St. Augustine and it looks absolutely gorgeous! I didn’t know they had ghost tours there, that’s cool!

      Thank you for visiting, and good luck with the challenge. Happy blogging!
