Sundays in My City - Who Ya Gonna Call?

Just in time for Halloween and all the other scary stuff (like mom overdosing on sugar as she passes out the candy...before she passes out), my little Katya's employer made it into our local news magazine for being one of the "things that go bump" in our area.

Katya is a manager at our local DQ, where there is tale of a horrific murder that happened back in the '70's. In the '70's?...why, I was just a blossoming young adult back then making all of the "dating, drinking and don't do this" mistakes that many of us use as our base for being so strict with our own blossoming young adults!

Back to the tells of a female manager counting money one night after closing. She was murdered (email me if you want the gory details) in the utility/mop/broom closet and since that night, she visits the restaurant...moving items, knocking things off of counters and making the hair on the back of necks rise to the occasion.

The son of the current owner has been said to have seen strange things out of the corner of his eye, but never seen a full-fledged apparition. An employee who stays late to make the ice cream cakes for the next day's orders has had similar experiences witnessing things moving with no explanation. One of the grill cooks was carrying a stack of milk crates when, all of a sudden, the top crate seemed to be pushed off from the side. Employees have said that while in the freezer getting supplies, the door was pushed closed. There was no one around at the time to push the door.

Katya has yet to personally experience anything, however, she has seen shaded areas in the cameras. Unknown to the writer of this article, I have a friend who was there with her kids once when her then four year old was standing outside of the utility room in a trance-like state while he stared into the room. He could not recall what he was looking at when she questioned him later.

We have many places with ghostly histories here in my city. I love to read about them, watch documentaries and "Ghost Hunters" marathons, or listen to stories of some of our older residents, as long as I am in the safety of my own home!

I'd like you to get to know Unknown Mami! She has a wonderful blog where she shares photos of her city on Sundays, and then invites the rest of us to link up with her and share some of our own city's photos. Click on the logo to visit Sundays in My City!

I live in St. Louis, Missouri! Welcome to my city! MMUUHAAHAAAAHAAAA!

"Things that go bump" indeed....I think I would be getting my chocolate dip cone to go, especially today.

Unknown Mami rocks :)

That's creepy. If there is a ghost, I feel sorry for her :(

Oooohhh, scary! What great Halloween story.

Jenny said...

OK. I'll just have to forego that particular DQ! Yikes.

I love a good scary story-- especially if all the lights are on and Dairy Queen is available :-)
Cheers, jj

Oh you tell a good story. I think you would terrify me with your ghostly tales.

I would not want to be in that place alone at night or maybe ever.
