6. In The Garden Of Ghosts


6. In The Garden Of Ghosts

As seen on the TODAY Show, our friendly ghost family is eager to make themselves right at home. This classic Halloween decoration is perfect for a silly yet spooky front yard or a happy haunted garden. Use the set of four flowing phantom friends separately or tie the hands together to make a circle. Their morphing LED eyes light up, and their arms are posable.

The material is great for outdoors and they are really cool. Only problem is that the PVC pipe wont stay in the ground. The ghosts keep falling over and won't stand up. They do look cool hanging from the trees though. Another disappointment is that the lights only lasted about a day before the batteries gave out. If you are hanging them and don't care about them lighting up, then you are good to go.

Stay on that top floor and head to the waypoint to survey the defences, where you'll spot more Mongol guards dotted across the garden path outside. You'll also spot Ryuzo, the place where you'll be poisoning the Mongol drinks, and their hefty explosive defences that your uncle will be walking right into if it weren't for you.

As a boy growing up in Kalihi, I heard dozens of ghost stories that started just like that. It seemed like everyone I knew had either seen a ghost, or knew someone who had. Buddy Franklin said he lived next door to a haunted house in Kalihi Valley. One afternoon we worked up the guts to check the place out. The house was old, abandoned and broken down. We walked inside to find spider webs, weathered furniture and bees. We didn't see any ghosts that day, but it still was pretty spooky stuff.

My Uncle Wally claimed he could not only see ghosts, but also photograph them. He said once on Kaua'i he was standing at the lookout overlooking Spouting Horn, holding his camera. All of a sudden, he felt a cold chill. Still, he managed to snap the picture. When he got the photograph back, there was a spray of salt water shooting into the sky-and a ghostly image. One day, when he was in a good mood, he even showed me the picture. Sure enough, I could see a woman's face in the burst of ocean water. Half-human, half-skull. Locked in an eternal scream. I wonder what ever happened to that picture.

It has been my intention to treat these stories with the same love and respect that the original tellers have displayed. As if the stories were my very own. I want to thank the teachers, police officers and office workers, who have trusted me with their stories. I hope I have somehow managed to capture at least some of the power in their tales of restless spirits, menehune, hauntings and choking ghosts.

"I seen this old lady in the garden," says Ruben. "She had white hair. She wore a red mu'umu'u with white and yellow flowers. And she wore this straw hat. You know, the kind of straw hat a lot of tutus wear. But I couldn't see the lady's face. She was tending to her plants."

"I don't know if I'm psyching myself out, but I'm pretty sure we will have the house blessed again," says Sarah. "I never believed in ghosts or spirits, but had heard many people talk about them. Moving to Hawai'i has given me the experience of both seeing and feeling spirits. I have become a believer now that I've lived here."

During WW2, The Captain was for the most part stationed at Button House. He was C.O of a unit charged with HQ duties with his second-in-command being Lieutenant Havers, until he was transferred. It is unknown precisely what the Captain was charged with achieving although it can be speculated that it was research into new weaponry, as he alleges that he was the only one aware of a top secret project called Operation William. William was a secret prototype limpet mine which The Captain buried in one of the gardens (though why is unknown) shortly after Havers left for North Africa. If Cap really was in charge of armaments research it would explain his particular fondness for weaponry.

Having installed himself as leader to the gang of ghosts at Button House, he likes to keep a watchful eye over everybody. Unlike Pat who attempts to keep the dead residents interacting and close-knit, The Captain calls for order and often uses them as troops for his plots and plans. In a way he has turned himself into Button House's chief of security and does not take kindly to newcomers for the most part. He insists the house is guarded and will often put Humphrey on look-out duty at night.

In "Happy Death Day", The Captain joins forces with Julian to figure out a way of getting rid of the builders. They quickly agree that all builders are thieves so all they have to do is watch and wait for one to steal something, then report it to Alison. However, none of the builders are thieves, they're actually rather good people, one is even helping to build a playground for charity. In the end, Cap and Julian resort to pushing Alison's engagement ring into one of the tool boxes and claiming it was stolen. This does get the builders out the house since they quit, but not for the reasons the ghosts had intended.

When the eclipse comes around and Robin wants to have his traditional ceremony, The Captain agrees only on the grounds that he can do the reading, Thomas contests this but the others really don't care, he then proceeds to orchestrate as if it is a battle plan with a map of the house and small rocks to represent the henge which once stood there. Unfortunately for Alison the ceremony takes place in the middle of her dining room while she's throwing a dinner party and it is Cap who stands up for Robin by pointing out that it is important and a time honoured tradition; however, he only does this because he doesn't like to receive orders but prefers to give them. He and the other ghosts are soon distracted by watching 'Friends' until Pat gets the sofa moved outside so they can look at the moon.

In the final episode of season one, "Getting Out", he again turns his attention to getting rid of Alison and Mike, though unlike last time the ghosts refuse, since they've become rather fond of the Coopers. He accuses them of a "bloodless coup" and is thrown out of their group for being too commanding, then replaced by Pat who hadn't really intended to take his place. The Captain tries to get the plague victims to join him with the promise of quarters upstairs, but they want nothing to do with him either. He remains intent on getting rid of Alison and Mike, though starts to have second thoughts when he notices Fiona Legge's odd behavior. Ultimately he is the only one of the ghosts, or indeed the entire household, who realizes she is attempting to con Alison and Mike to get Button House for practically nothing. Cap then uses this knowledge to trick Kitty into having Alison get Fiona's people to dig up the basement and reveal the plague victims, he does this having set aside his want for Alison and Mike to leave to reveal the injustice. As Fiona runs away, the ghosts discern that Cap had put all the wheels in motion and again welcome him into their group as they realize they do actually need him. Kitty is upset that he's used her until Cap points out that it means Alison is staying which is when she instantly forgives him.

He does his best to avoid Alison digging up the garden so she can prepare it for a venue viewing in "Redding Weddy", as he is the only one aware of the prototype limpet mine buried there, he tells her that there is "something explosive" but she takes this to mean scandalous. Mike eventually builds a bonfire to burn the garden waste and causes the mine to blow up leaving a crater in the garden, Cap dives over it as one would a grenade and later states he did it because he was "caught up in the moment". The whole thing haunts The Captain since it reminds him of when his second-in-command, Lt. Havers, left for the front. Throughout the episode it becomes quite clear that he had feelings for Havers and was deeply upset by his leaving. 59ce067264
