Veteran's Day & Unsolved Mysteries

Happy Veteran's Day. Aren't you grateful to live in this country and enjoy the freedoms of this country? I know that I am. I am afraid that I take it for granted. I am grateful that my life has not really been touched by war, despite the possibilities in my lifetime. My grandfather served in the military, he served in the Korean War; and I have an uncle that served for about 20 years in the military.

The other day, I came across a show that I hadn't seen in a while, Unsolved Mysteries. I used to watch this show with papaw. It used to scare me then, and it scared me this time, too. I don't know if you have picked up on this or not, but Jamie and I both have this problem, we are scaredy cats and we watch shows that scare us despite that. Jamie had a post about watching the show "A Haunting," if you need a refresher, you can read it here. So I had the same problem with the Haunting show, and the other day I got sucked in by Unsolved Mysteries. That night, I had bad dreams about crazy ghosts and glowing luminol (stuff that they spray on surfaces to detect blood) on the walls. I have got to stay away from these shows even though I like them so much. I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment.


  1. that show still scares me! jeff won't let me watch it when he's not home because i'll get scared and stay up all night.

  2. unsolved mysteries used to freak me out.
    one time a football game got canceled b/c of rain or something and i came home but no one else was home. that darn show was on t.v. and i could hardly move until my family returned!

  3. I loved, loved Unsolved Mysteries. Yes I like to watch scary things as well, even though I get wigged out by them. lol

  4. Ok, I love to watch scary movies, but they keep me up. However, I ALWAYS make Josh turn the channel when unsolved mysteries comes on. I don't know what it is about that show, but I can't watch it. I guess cuz the stuff is actually real and not some cheesey scary movie
