Spooky Ghost Hat  | Yarning for You

Spooky Ghost Hat

Alright, it's October people. The time of year when I start booking ghost hunting tours hoping against hope that I see a door slam, a glass fly off a shelf, or better yet a full grown man squeal and run out of a room. I would laugh so hard that I would probably pee my pants. Dude blood could be running down the walls and I would be on the ground laughing at that guy. I am not a nice person. Self...
