My youngest daughter told me that she was masquerading as a spook in one of those “haunted houses” up in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. She said that this past Sunday would be her last time working there and she wanted me to come see her. On Sundays I am usually “extremely tired.” I normally get in late on Saturdays nights (Somewhere around 3:00 to 3:30) and then I have to play at church starting at 7:30 am on Sunday morning. I perform for 2 church services and usually finish around 2 pm. Pittsburgh is about 4 to 5 hours from me (If you drive the actual speed limit). As a father, you should be prepared to go beyond your limits for your children. That is exactly what happened Sunday. The interesting part of it was that I started driving around the speed limit (which was 70 miles per hour) and yet I was one of the “slowest” drivers on the highway. People were passing me left and right. Once I realized this then I “stepped up my game and my velocity” and did about 80 to 90 mpg. When I finally got there my daughter had a special ticket hooked up for me. I bypassed the long line and went into a special entrance. The scare crew was “excellent.” They were so funny that they actually were very scary. They put a bag over my face and had me follow a tied rope to my destination for the beginning part. They also knew that my daughter was waiting for me inside and said things like “You will find your daughter in this room.” They made mention of it to me. I won’t divulge what they have going on, but I will say that I was “thoroughly entertained” by them. They were “great.” The location of the haunted house is 118 Locust Street in Etna, Pennsylvania. They should be open this Halloween night, and if you like being scared then I suggest you check them out. It was “excellent” and the people working there are magnificent (and I am not saying that simply because my daughter works there). I came back yesterday (at 80 to 90 miles per hour again) and now I am safe at home. By the way, I had a great time seeing my daughter as well. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
