On the afternoon of April 4, 2014, my husband and I were driving home from the Radford Virginia area. We were on Intersate. 81 near the exit for Salem Virginia. Just before we got near an overpass I noticed something strange in the sky. It looked like two white sheets positioned to appear like ghosts. I was intrigued, as I do not believe real spirits look like the image that Hollywood has given us. The reason white sheets are associated with departed spirits began in England in the 17th century. The British buried their dead in white linen shrouds so it was assumed when the dead came back they would be wearing their burial clothing. White sheets representing ghosts became popular in America when the Ku Klux Klan put them on to frighten the newly freed slaves after they were set free in 1865. They knew the African Americans believed in ghost tales so they took full advantage.

A promo for this week on The Young and the Restless shows Elena crying as she is telling Devon that she slept with Nate. Ms. Dawson seems to be in tears in almost every episode lately so let's hope something works out in her favor that will put a smile on her face. The next scene in the promo shows Neil's son with guns blazing reaching out to punch his cousin with his fist. Monday's Y&R episode was devoted to the Abbotts dealing with Dina's death and Summer stalking Kyle. The brawl between Devona and Nate will probably come on Tuesday or later in the week.
