I've returned from my trip to the haunted Menger Hotel. The ghosts didn't come out to play this time. Lol, my sister put a flashlight down in the floor and asked the ghosts to turn it on. No surprise to me that nothing happened. However, when I mentioned that there was no such thing as a flashlight in their day & they might not know how to turn it on, she got slightly annoyed. Apparently that isn't supposed to matter. Oh well.

When we checked into our room, there was a vase of roses & a card with my name on it. They were lovely, but slightly awkward. My sister's son sent them...on mother's day weekend...to his aunt. His mom didn't even get a call till late Sunday night. Yup...awkward.

Sorry if any of you posted a fic that I've not commented on yet. Tomorrow, I will go back and look at all the posts that I missed.

The hotel was built in the 1800's and the door below is from the original construction. It lead into a suite of rooms belonging to a cattle baron named Captain King. He died in the room however the story is that he still comes and goes. When the hotel went through remodeling, a new door was installed. However, they left the original door in place, sealing it shut. The reason is that the ghost is supposed to come and go through that door!!! Lol, I wouldn't be sleeping were I to stay in that room.
