What I'm Seeing Now

Mosby Brings A Friend

Mosby seems to follow me around.  Obviously I am only able to see him when I break out the Infrared Camera.  And he brought a friend again!  He seems very popular where he is, and wants me to know it. 

In life, after the Civil War, Colonel J. S. Mosby, if that's who this is, lived in Kentucky after the war and worked as a lawyer.  He married a young lady named Mariah Pauline Clarke, known as "Pauline."

While I am not sure who his friend is this time, I am going to call her Pauline!

She looks comfortably dressed! Maybe it's summer where they are.

He always looks the same.  It's as if he is wearing a uniform and belt each time he shows up...

Wonder if he stays down there or will be up in our attic on Saturday when Mr. Insulation pays a visit.

That is pretty weird.  But, the woman doesn't look to be from that period.  Or, I would think her outfit somewhat scandalous for the time with the low neck and bare arms.  Perhaps he picked up a "lady friend" in the afterlife.

It is amazing what those cameras pick up during home inspection. Do you put that in your report?

Wow, Sally - break out the camera!

So, you followed my suggestion?  That is the best energy saver you can do to your home.  Good for you.

Gotta be Ron!  Or, that style of dress is all the rage in the spirit world...

Harry - absolutely, including each room that contains a ghost and which ghost is in it...    ;)

Thinking he's been out drinking martinis with Roger's Eddie!

Hmmm....you home inspectors have WAY too much fun!  Good thing you don't have to disclose the presence of ghosts in a seller's disclosure statement!

Ja,

That is almost exciting as the old spirit photos of the 1920s.

Tish - you should know that Mosby was/is a teetotaler...

Kathryn - you think it's fun to look to the side and see ghosts in the room?!

Steve - that is the time when someone photographed "fairies" in his yard having a circle dance and playing on his daughters' hands.  That scam went over for some time!  Was published in magazines!

Almost like he's wearing a uniform and a belt...hmmm...who could that be?

Wouldn't know Jeremy.  But Pauline, Mosby's wife's name in real life, in this case, is a ballet teacher, very tall, thin and long.
