Mondays Finish the Story – May 25th, 2015 – Spirits


Finish the story begins with:  “The only residents remaining in the small town of Miners Hill are spirits.”

I should know I am one of them. Call me Les; short for Spirit Les…in the spirit world we all have the same first name, the great leveller in death.

But we get along ok. Spirit Tulle who runs the dance shop is my neighbour and Spirit Level the hardware shop on the next corner.

Today is our Memorial Day, we honour ourselves, which is pretty cool, and Spirit Ting is giving his first ever address.

His Asian ancestry was paramount in this place as his people paved the way to so much success in this community.

Its sad since the life went out of the place, but fate has played a part in everyone’s life or in our case death. The pastor Spirit Ed only last Sunday said we should all count blessings. Things could always be worse, there could be people to disturb our eternity.

    Hope the nearest city doesn’t start a suburban sprawl. All the Spirits might have some people to annoy them.
