A real ghost

Handwritten page of a diary dated June 15, 1970

…  then Grandma says she can prove to me that ghosts are real and I will never again have any doubts. I say You must be joking with me. She pulls out a framed picture of her own mother and says There’s a real ghost in there — plain as day.

I say Grandma you know the photographer coulda been pulling your mother’s leg because I think he worked up a double exposure on here to get her going. She says, no they didn’t even have double exposures back in them days. I say if that’s a real ghost then this picture would be valuable.

I’d like to kick myself for telling her that because now she wants me to find out who we need to call to sell this picture to a magazine or something and make some bigtime dough.
