The modular look of the trail is due to the beating of the wings, each module being one wing beat."
WOW!!!! I'm impressed!

Default Ghost

Hi All,

There is a myth about a ghost that is sometimes seen on Rolling Acres Road, the ghost has also been seen at LSL.

Not to sure if the information is still on TOTV, as it was originally posted when this site first started. Some friends have gone on ghost rides looking for her.

Hope it is still posted so that you can read the history of our ghost.

Scroll down to Lady Lake and you'll get a brief story about the ghost on Rolling Acres Road.

Enjoy!

I don't believe in ghosts.

But I do believe in Santa Claus.

That's easy for you to say

Default Ghost named Julia

Excellent find!

Yes Julia is the ghost that has been seen. I do not recall when the first siting was. If I recall correctly, not to sure if it took place, there was to be a seance at LSL near the lake under one of the trees.

I will see if anyone still has the pictures of Julia. If I find them I will post them.

We can always start another search for her.

That is a very interesting photograph. What I like about this forum, is that we can always depend on friends like Pooh to come up with a reasonable explanation, one that would have never occured to me!

You should have waited one week before Halloween to post the picture. Then we all would have believed in ghosts!

Yep, her name is Julia and you'll hear us talk about her every so often. Donna is the leader of the "Find Julia" group and she and Rockin Rhonda went down Rolling Acres late one night to find her and got the **** scared out of them. I do believe she hangs around LSL because a few years ago, Donna took a picture of me and DickY outside of Bravo pizza and the picture showed Julia hovering over my head.... I swear, I hope I can find this picture and I'll post it.

Hi KathieI,

I have emailed Donna to see if she still has the pictures.

For those of you who do not know of this midnight ride down Rolling Acres Road to visit Julia, our brave heroins went via golf cart.

Oh please do post the picture, Kathie! I remember seeing y'all talk about this before but I don't remember a picture. I'd love to see it!

I'd love to see that picture, too, Kathie.

Does anyone have any information on just who this Julia was? It is stated that she was killed by a former suitor, but I can't seem to find anything about who she was, when the death happened, who did the killing. Is she a real person or legend?

You're in luck!! Donna found the picture and just sent it to me via email. I'll down load it here in a few minutes, but let me caution you first.... I don't look like this anymore, thank God... thanks to living in TV and the Wellness Center, I look very different. And as far as the history of Julia, we'll have to appeal to Donna to tell us the story, maybe the Vicar knows it as well. ???? Who are you Vicar? Seems like you are an old acquaintance of ours who went on that little gutsy trip to Rolling Acres???? hmmmm??? Be back in a few with the picture.

Kathie,

As a Vicar I am not allowed to disclose anything that is said to me in the confessional.

Thank you for posting the picture. If my memory serves me correctly Dicky Y was in the picture with you and Julia was just hovering over you.

There are other pictures of Julia floating around - perhaps they will turn up also.
