Real Haunted Houses

Keeping with the Halloween theme , I thought I'd introduce you to two very creepy houses. In fact, I saw them on the Travel Channels Top 10 Creepiest Places to visit - these were numbers 1 and 2...

The first is the Winchester House. Here is the picture of it, but here is the link to read the story behind the house. It was voted #2 in the show.

The one that won first place was the Lizzie Borden B & B. Do you remember the story from childhood? I don't remember the first time I heard it but never forgot

'Elizabeth Borden took and axe and gave her mother 40 whacks, and when the job was nicely done, she gave her father 41'

This happened in Fall River , Massachusetts. Lizzie was tried but never convicted of the crimes and to this day the murders go unsolved. She died in 1927. Here is the link to the Inn.

You can even stay in the room where she murdered her mother - no freakin' thank you very much -
Anyway, hope ya'll are having a great weekend. We got our new (used) car today - YIPPEE- I will post a picture of it tomorrow. I'm so excited I get to drive myself to work Monday morning!

Somehow.... I don't think I'll be visiting either of those places ever. Just not necessary.

Congrats on the new car -- can't wait to see pics of it!
