Subject: Re: More 'Moth Man' & Ghosts.


Greetings: Jane Greene's and Keith Norrington's 'sensations' on the DQ and at Jane's home are fascinating. Jane, do tell steamboats.org 'posters' about when the new bar was installed on the starboard side of the DQ years ago and what happened! I don't want to steal your thunder as you can tell it better. It got big press coverage along with photos in the papers here at the time. I'll admit now freely to my 'Moth Man' vision. Last week I was driving over Glade Ave. here about 7:00 AM. It was dark just before the snow. I had nothing in particular on my mind (except driving safely) when I came to the corner of Mears Ave. I looked to my left and, in front of a large oak tree, I spotted the vision of 'Moth Man' standing and looking across. I blinked, slowed a bit and saw the apparition fade away. Average size, arms like moth wings folded around and a face like that of a large moth. I pondered it for a day or so, wrote it off and said nothing. Within days a tragic fire broke out in the brick house behind the tree and a lady died as a result of smoke inhalation. Now, you tell me who's crazy. Elaine Santangelo, I know of people who've 'photographed' unknowingly ghosts on film. One lady (retired teacher) sent her photo to KODAK labs for a test and they could offer no logical explanatiion for the images either from defective film, faulty chemicals in developing, reflected light etc. The picture she caught was of a 17th century lady in the walled grounds of a large English country house wearing farthingales and a type of bonnet. I saw the pic and it's remarkable. Jane, I recall again the story your mom told me years ago about the mystery figure of the man she and your aunt (Ms Cavendish) saw when they were kids standing by a wood fence. Letha Greene said he approached them and then disappeared in the ground. They went over and looked and nothing was there. She related he was "wearing very dark clothing not unlike a cape or great coat." Your mom never used the term 'Moth Man' back then but it is interesting that it took place in West Virginia many years ago.
Regards,
R. Dale Flick
