Our ghost made an appearance today. Dave and I were at the bar this morning so he could do inventory and make a bank deposit, and while he was weighing and measuring bottles we heard a loud crash from the back room. We just kind of looked at each other and shrugged. Later, as we were leaving, I noticed fog coming out of the fog machine, but I thought that was normal so I didn't even mention it to Dave.
After the basketball game (yay! KU won!) we stopped by the bar again and Coleen excitedly informed us that the ghost must be present, because fog had been coming out of the machine all day even though it wasn't turned on. Okay, so maybe what I saw earlier wasn't normal. I mentioned that some fog had escaped earlier and got some funny looks, like "why didn't you say something?"
The Sandbar ghost first made an appearance on Tuesday, March 18, 2003. It was around 3 a.m., so technically it was really March 19. It was also- of course- a full moon, because every time there is a full moon something strange happens. Although usually it's one of Dave's ex-girlfriends making an appearance, not our ghost.
Dave and Dean had worked that night, and it was a fairly quiet night for a Tuesday, probably since our annual holiday of St. Patrick's Day was the night before and everyone was tired.
Around 3:30 a.m., the boys were counting their tips and handling other routine closing duties, when half of a dollar bill came floating down from the ceiling and smacked onto the bar as loudly as if it had been thrown. They both heard it hit. It had "Dean" written on the dollar bill. Spooky, huh? It was like the dollar was trying to talk to Dean.
They kind of laughed it off and went about their business.
There is much more to this story, but unfortunately the guys didn't write the whole story at once, and it's spread amongst multiple notebooks, and I can't find the rest of the story right now, so you'll have to wait for another day to hear how it ends.
