Scared me ------ never
« on: Sunday 28 August 05 00:45 BST (UK) »
I have just had the strangest experience ever in a churchyard

Imagine a country church with a small yard with graves in it, around the churchyard is a small three foot high wall surrounding it and a yew tree in the middle and that nice little portal thingy

There I was today walking round taking pictures and writing inscriptions down, when ever so faintly I heard voices -- from where ?? I looked around no one for miles I thought "Don't be stupid, your imagining it"  but the voices were still there so I walked towards them, still no one in sight, so I thought "I think I have finished, lets go home"  Anyway I started to walk out of the churchyard slowly speeding up.  Then I saw it !!!!!!!!!! the three foot wall was nine foot on the other side and there it was two women having a quiet chat ------- Laugh,  oh yes  I laughed ...............

Andrew -

you big girl's blouse!!!!!
fancy being scared in a graveyard in daylight!!!
What did you say to the women? or did you just walk suavely by?
Bet you went for a pint right after - for medicinal purposes of course!!!

It was at dusk!!!!! and I had a laugh with the women, before they flew away on broomsticks with a sinister laugh or cackle

And if you look through the church records it states of one person died having been scared by faries and another one was put to death as a witch,  that is not made up it says that

I just couldn't work out where the noise was coming from just that it was lower than I was and I was at ground level. It was just funny

Hi Andrew,

I was in a cemetery on a Sunday with not another sole in sight and I was straddling a grave trying to read a faded inscription when a rabbit shot out right between my legs.  I nearly died of fright!
