Yesterday I did a three hour tour of telling history on Bridge Street. It was hot, but somehow we got through it. Well some of us did. LOL. I told a story about St. Andrew’s Church that I have told before. But this time I named names..
The story goes like this…..
It has been said that one of our more prominent late citizens in Carleton Place was quite a prankster in his youth. Trying to become a good Samaritan and rack up those brownie points he offered to help one of his friends pump the organ one Sunday in St. Andrew‘s Presbyterian Church. In those days the organ was pumped by hand, as the electric motor was not in use then.
After the kind offer was accepted the do-gooder began to sprinkle sneezing powder in and around the organ. As the organ began to play the first hymn the powder began to waft through the air. First the choir began to sneeze, then the minister, and finally the congregation joined in. No mention of what kind of punishment our local lad got when he got home- or from a higher power.
Well a month ago Ken Hastie or Pappy as I call him told me who did it. It was non other ythan David Findlay. Very few knew– until yesterday when I opened my mouth about it and a few other names.
Last night I developed a light rash on my back and I began to scratch and am still scratching. In fact I am on my way I am about to go to Giant Tiger and buy a back scratcher. They have some beauties there for $5.99. After I mentioned it to someone they told me that it was a ghost getting back at me for spilling the beans on a lot of stuff yesterday on that Bridge Street walkabout. Hmmm…
2. What are the physical symptoms of being affected by ghosts?
- Foul taste in the mouth.
- Experience of eyes being pulled inside, irritation in the eyes, etc.
- Dryness of lips, mouth and throat.
- Oily skin.
- Rashes on the skin.
- Eerie feeling of being touched
So am I being haunted for telling tales out of school? As an old Chinese proverb says: “before telling secrets on the road- you need to look in the bushes first”.
Any comments on this??
