Rainy Days and Ghosts In The Attic

This is one of the pictures I found in the box of pre-WWII photos. I don't know what country these people are in or why they are in a queue. But I know I love looking at them and wondering about them. I have lots more of these and will post more later on.

Doesn't my little dachshund Wilma look sweet in her Sunday dress and Santa hat?  And here's Dothan warming by the fireplace.
Lazy cat.

I had a little fright when I arrived for work at the Library this morning. Our ghost was acting up in the attic. When I stepped off the elevator upstairs where I work, I was walking across the room (in the dark) to get to the light switches and turn the lights on. I heard something in the attic that sounded like it was walking along right beside me, keeping up with me. Well, needless to say, I turned around and jumped right back in the elevator and went back downstairs! I got off and called my co-workers names and no-one answered! For a moment I thought I was in a horror movie. (Did I say I have a vivid imagination?) Finally, I found Sherry and she came back up and went through the attic with me, alas, we found nothing there... She thinks it may have been a squirrel or other critter, so now we have someone from the city coming to check it out. Did I also mention that its dark and rainy outside today?

Oh well, I think I'll settle down with a good mystery and keep one eye on the attic door for the rest of the day!  Maybe I'll have lots of patrons to keep me company.

Hope your day goes well, remember, books are good friends to have around! Also, brave co-workers!

A ghost?! Sounds more like Halloween than Christmas ;)

Thanks for sharing your pet's pictures at the Christmas Pet Parade!

What a way to start the day! I agree, just curl up with a good british mystery. Yhanks for visiting my blog.

I'd wager that is a suffrage march in South Carolina or some other Southern city due to the palm tree and from the pins on their jackets and they are all women.
