Hello guys n gals,
     Being an avid record collector I was recently at a charity shop in an old part of my home town searching through a box of old LPs.

      There was only myself and a shop girl in the place so I was having an easy time of it rooting through a box of old records. I happened to glance behind me and a man with grey hair walked past dressed in a flat cap and long blue raincoat and heading towards the changing room. Not really caring I carried on rumaging through the record box.

        Getting late the shop girl said she was closing up and would I mind paying for my purchase. I told her no problem and asked if she like me to hang about whilst   the guy in the changing room had finished. Being a dad and having two girls of my own the thought of this young Miss on her own with a stranger at closing time was a bad idea.

          We waited for about twenty minutes and  I could see she was getting nervous and Baggy was starting to feel arkward about being there. So to break the tension I said I would go and see what was keeping him. I trotted over to the cubicle pulled the curtain back, but found it empty.  

        Feeling foolish I apologised to the girl and said" there was no one in there and that whoever he was he must have left the shop unnoticed at some point ealier." She then told me that the front door had been locked for the past half hour and that she had let no one  in or out of the place. So what happened to the man in the blue-mac is anybody's guess? ???

Hi Wayne and Secret Sign,
                  The guy in the shop was so solid in his appearance that I've often wondered if some of the  passers by on the street are not all what they seem???

Thanks for your interest...Baggy 8)

Most ghost's can appear solid looking,and that can make you think that the person was from the living.When in fact,in wasn't. 8)

Baggy, my friend and i were once walking in a cemetery visiting my grandmother's grave and it was winter, snow was lightly coming down, suddenly we saw an old women who was dressed for summer really wearing a dress but she was smiling as she passed us, we both nodded and smiled and all the while i thought how odd she wasn't freezing, I turned around a split second after she passed and she was gone, so i do think ghosts can be as solid as the living
