  • West Virginia Ghost Story

    Hi Everyone, here is a WV ghost story. Steve


    This happened about a month ago just outside a little town in the

    Low country of West Virginia, and while it sounds like an Alfred

    Hitchcock tale, it's real. A guy was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a really

    dark night in the middle of a thunderstorm.

    Time passed slowly and no cars went by. It was raining so hard he

    could hardly see his hand in front of his face. Suddenly he saw a car

    moving slowly, approaching and appearing ghost-like in the rain. It slowly

    crept toward him and stopped.

    Wanting a ride really bad, the guy jumped in the car and closed the

    door, only then did he realize that there was nobody behind the wheel.

    The car slowly started moving and the guy was terrified, too scared

    to think of jumping out and running.

    The guy saw that the car was slowly approaching a sharp curve, still

    too scared to jump out, he started to pray and begging for his life; he

    was sure the ghost car would go off the road and into the marsh and he would

    surely drown, when just before the curve, a hand appeared through the

    driver's window and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around

    the bend.

    Paralyzed with fear, the guy watched the hand reappear every time

    they reached a curve.

    Finally the guy, scared to near death, had all he could take and

    Jumped out of the car and ran to town.

    Wet and in shock, he went into a cafe and, voice quivering, ordered

    a cup of hot coffee, black, then told everybody about his experience.

    A silence enveloped the cafe and everybody got goose bumps when they

    realized the guy was telling the truth and was not just some weirdo.

    About half an hour later two guys walked into the cafe and one says

    To the other: "Look Bubba, there's that idiot who rode in our car when we

    Were pushing it in the rain.

    Thanks for that one. I actually laughed out loud and my dog stared at me as if I was nuts.

      Yesterday was amazing to see someone ring the bell after beating cancer. When we left we walked to our cars and had our arms around each others shoulders. I told her this was the best party I have ever been to. I found this message on my phone this morning “I am such a blessed woman. I was so excited....

      I don't remember which one I used but I think it was somewhere around #12 which is .029 diameter. Anything between 12 and 19 will work you would just adjust your slot width. There is a pattern for bending it to shape do you have that?

      Old wooden plates.

      Over the years I've found that cutting old wooden plates can be very rewarding. Most of them are very good wood and when you finish your cut out the plate already has a nice finish on it.. I normally buy mine at yard sales or Good Will whenever I can find them....

      I've found in the past that you can find some very nice wood from old wooden plates. When you finish your cut out the wood already has a nice finish. I am only adding a picture of 6 but I have done many of these....
