New Orleans is the perfect place to spend your birthday. I got in yesterday morning and it was a balmy 85 degrees. My kind of weather. Lunch at the Acme Oyster House, a great walking tour, a nice nap, dinner at Nola’s (pecan crusted Redfish and lemon meringue pie with a candle). Perfect.
Now the weird part. New Orleans is known for it’s haunted tours, but I was in the elevator that didn’t want to let me out. I’d push the button and the door would open then close almost all the way, then open again. Over and over. I finally jumped out and looked for the stairs. Of course when I finally got a staff person to look at it, everything was working fine. So, was a ghost working the elevator? I’d kind of like to think so. It goes with the ambience that is New Orleans.

I started thinking of the books I’d read with ghost in them, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, The Shining, and the fascination with ghosts on tv, The Ghost Whisperer and Medium. So tell me, what ghost story do you remember reading? Did it stay with you? Do you believe in ghosts?
I did the Haunted Tour of New Orleans and it scared the dickens out of me. I’m done with that.
Bottom Line: Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes on Facebook, Twitter, emails and blog. You made my day very special.
