Oh my friends – it’s the busiest time of the year here at the Hotel Thompson. Bacon works all year long working on his 31 Days of Spook to find some great stories and ghosts. He’s been tapping away night and day. I really hope you have been enjoying them so far. He’s even got me, the purr things and mom/dad into his research. It should be a glorious spooky October 🙂
I want to share something with you that my mom got for her office. She picked four of my best pictures from my first year and had a collage put on canvas. This is hanging up in her office at the worky place now. Something to remind her of me every day when she goes to work without me. What do you think? It’s beautiful huh? I think she did great in picking out four of my best pics.
Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well. Happy weekend!

So you were brave enough to come back for another scare my friends? How brave you are. You may want ask your human to get you a night light tonight because it can only get worse from here – insert evil snort. Today we are going to highlight some famous and eerie cemeteries. Are you brave enough to enter my cemetery of the famous dead? I’ve wandered throughout the internet and done a lot of research to bring you some intriguing places of final rest… or is it? I hope that you find them interesting.
Let’s take a little stroll amidst the stones shall we.
When I think of scary and mysterious cemeteries, my first thoughts have to go towards New Orleans. Let’s visit the St. Louis Cemetery #1. This cemetery opened in 1789 and there are over 100,000 residents. With that much of a crowd, you know some have to be a little unhappy with their final resting place. I know I would be. The most famous tenant here is Marie Laveau. Marie Laveau was a famous voodoo priestess. People visit her grave site often and mark three “X’s” on her grave. People that do so believe that by marking the three “X’s”, Marie Laveau will grant them their wish.
The next that came to mind were two different cemeteries in the Chicago area. One was Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery in Chicagoland. I’ve heard about this place a lot over the years. I’ve seen specials on television and mommy has read me different chilling facts in books. Not only does this cemetery have a history of unexplained lights and ghosts, it has an entire house that mysteriously appears and disappears. Many people that have seen the house describe it as a white farmhouse with pillars and a swing. The other cemetery was Resurrection Cemetery in Chicago. This story sends chills up and down my spine every time I see it on television. It starts off with a beautiful girl who was walking home from a dance one late night. She was hit by a car and killed and has been looking for a ride home every since. I saw a story one night where a man picked up this lady at a dance. They danced into the late hours and he admitted that she felt cold to the touch. Upon taking her home after the dance, she asked him to stop in front of the cemetery. She got out and disappeared into the air.
And how can we forget the most eerie of places in Salem, Massachusetts at Howard Street Cemetery. With all of the witch hunts that took place here, this has got to be one of the most haunted places in the United States. Just think of all of the innocent people that were slowly tortured and burned at the stake for the public believing they were witches. How many of those spirits still walk around wanting people to know that they were innocent but forever labeled a witch. Talk about your unfinished business in setting things straight. This reminds me of a story that mom told me about a guy named Giles Corey. He was officially the only person to die by torture during these Witch Trials. He wouldn’t say that he was a witch so the sheriff of the time made him lay down in the middle of his field. The sheriff then had a board placed across his chest and slowly added stones on top of the board. Eventually two days later, Corey was crushed to death in a slow and agonizing way.
