Fourteen men working the night shift at Washburn were killed and the city of Minneapolis burgeoning flower industry, which had just overtaken Buffalo an Saint Louis as the leading flower producer had been reduced to a third of its capacity. It took fire fighters all night, but out the flames and speculation began immediately that it was caused by an earthquake or train load of nitroglycerine or even bad. as from the Mississippi River that sparked the blast them. and ensures a Washburn male claimed. It was caused by flower to me stones that had become too dry rebel against one another and created a spark.

You should go to high school until you're twenty four. Ok, this is hometown and family connections below, but this little bit long, but I think it's worth great help. Loveliest, I'm from a small world town and Southern Wisconsin and grew up in one of the two local funeral homes by grandfather was actually the Oji director in his small town near Green Bay of his four our children one became a minister in the other three went into the family business. He had relocations that were split between brothers and my parents started their own business in another town for them. growing up in a funeral home through the Sixtys and Seventys is exactly what you'd imagine. The funeral dry
There was the only person that had a vehicle to accommodate a gurney, so he ran the ambulance, and my mom has stories of cleaning that out as a child laughter emergencies that would make your stomach try, honey, go out and Emma do your homework crowd, that Us are you done with your home from the house there really isn't enough time the day to tell you all of her or my stories, but I'll try to hit some fun highlights. My grandmother was from all meant was concerned, which is right next to Plainfield. If that sounds familiar, it's because that's! Where again let my grandparents TED stories about how he would give out can't me during the holidays and my grandpa actually gave him a ride, one time when he was walking down a long country row, but my God, we hear TED Bundy stories like close also whenever this is lacking, again Yonner, Cosette
That someone has tap to their grandparents for stories to set hotel in which, as a that's it, it's like a vintage yeah version. My grandpa said he was a creepy guy go figure rush. I a bunch of paranormal stories ranging from radio wars. The spirits in the and bombing room leaves the tv watching spirits and spirits playing the piano in the chapel to a fully white, slash, translucent young woman spirit, and I. coming upon each other among the casket displays only to both beast Arnold and run in the opposite directions. Oh my, but this is Oh shit: doesn't realise. She's dead, She thinks she sees a spirit yeah and you may not be who the fuck knows what we all know. Why were worried us now led out? No, what side of the Kurds are on the right
However, I've been bending her part gas to see if you ve covered my hometown murder and though I'm not all the way through. I have yet to hear it. This murder occurred and nineteen ninety four in Jefferson, Wisconsin High school teacher Diane, bore short convinced, her male students to kill her husband Reuben they were. in the beginning of a divorce. This having been both their second marriages. I dont know how she convince them exactly, but she took his and her children to his parents house for an overnight visit and that's when the boys broke into the home and shot Reuben. It didn't take long for one of them to crack and come clean to the police. The three boys and Diane we're all sentenced to varying terms in prison. My parents did, Vince Funeral and my mom remembers it being pretty crazy. She said there were under cover cops all around because they suspected and of being involved and wanted to keep a close eye on her behaviour in the lifetime. Movie about this murder was called seduced by
mad nasty, Diane Bore shouts story, suddenly romola right and they wanted- the film at the funeral home, but my parents wouldn't go for it. They did sign something to allow them to use the Red Brick building exterior in the movie. Thou there's also snapped episode detailing this murder season. Eighteen episode, eleven one of the boy is had actually been our paper boy at the funeral home and he would come into steel candy from the dish on the banister. Having had enough, my dad waited around the stairs to catch him, I'm pretty sure he scared the absolute shit out of the kid because he never came back something out and grabbing someone in your home is a great way to end some degree. My siblings and I went through a lot of babysitters that way actually boobs shrug. I love the quote: They say you die twice one time when you stop breathing and a second time a bit later on when somebody says your name for the last time. You lady
you're, giving victims life beyond their tragedy and that's pretty cool assets. De Gm, at least Jacobs goods that was twists and turns, and that was crazy yeah. I know men and what a first second, when Elise first started describing that murder. I was thinking of that Nicole Kidman movies, that's very similar. That idea of like hiring team, that a black widow, murder, Oh hi, thirteen boys to do the dirty work for them is it aspire. Shall place and how you is ruining the rest or even that they don't get caught, you're, ruining their lives, and everyone knows for continued boys can keep secrets. Also
they just to end its their susceptible. It's like that idea. It's it's! Why? All of that is like fucking leave children and teens alone. They don't know what the hell they're doing and they want to be like macho. It may think that their tough and they walked soprano is already in fact yes and yes, exact. That is a courageous cheers. Georgia please leave teenagers. I can't tell you again, GMO you're, so judgmental Karen sorry, sorry, just I'm sick of it. ok how people on patch your great I'm obsessed blah blah blah. Let you get into it another solid. I movement. just for just over five years ago for university and when I heard you that that you love the city as much as I do. I decided that I need to tell you my favorite with EU story. From the city? It yet has everything. Yes, Hannah best Swift was born.
or an in sixteen eighty, eight too rich parents. So her life is pretty good for a woman. At that time. That was until the day ever brothers funeral as they pulling down the lid of the coffin all caps, one his eyes, opened. Why? Yes, he was almost buried alive. Everything that I have read says that this quote broke Hannah and gave her a pathological fear of being buried alive, which is Fuckin fair and by a pitcher absolutely completely at not only not insane. This same history action you could Absolute Lee watching happened here almost have in your brother, then you're like now. Afraid this is going to happen to me absolutely only round, and then she says as if that were a weird reaction to her situation. Exactly why? Don't you be the little shaken by that happening, being buried alive, was pretty common back men, as I found out from under your episodes. Learning were teaching people stuff. That's her.
save. Sometimes it's right, sometimes job without agrees, fire worth so to keep from this fate? She added a line into her will that said, she wished to remain above ground until a doktor was absolutely sure she was dead. Now I read that, as keep her above ground for a few days and keep alive on her family doctor Doktor Charles White interpret it as embalm her and display her mom if I'd corpse o, which is what he did when she passed in seventeen. Fifty eight o after a short stay at her families home her involve body was given back to doktor. Why? Who put it on display in a grandfather, clock region is recycle, reuse, repeat, repulsive I'm confused like sheep, like there's a clock up here and then down here, the embalmed woman at the body of a dead woman. Now I think he turned a grandfather clock like whores
enter, and you know how they had. The little door is never see through glass. I'm just saying is the clock part still I have no idea. Probably not your stand! there staring at a really creevy thing and then there's just the tick and they why shouldn't lay for my appointment Gong guy! I really hope that ok, later she was given to the Museum of Manchester Natural History society where she was named. to Manchester Mummy and became one of them at their most popular attractions. In eighty sixty seven, the museum decided that she was wherever Berkeley and unmistakably dead. She finally laid the arrest in eighteen sixty eight hundred and ten years after her death. But the story isn't over. It said that before she, died. Hannah buried some treasure to keep it safe, from scottish rebels in seventeen, forty five, but she never told anyone where was, and it was a lost when the story goes, that
long after she died. Her ghost was seen, several times trees. We have similar stories for each of these. I now goes foreseen multiple times, walking over the same flagstoned and disappearing, someone who They were there pulled up bath, lags Joan and found a massive stash of gold. Yeah he's smart. Aha, he sold it. was given three pound tens, the our four hundred and fifty pounds for Peace! Oh, I was so disappointed at that. Oh that's me.

I hope you come back to the EU, hey as soon as this whole pandemic, malarkey

Fine, oh your seat book, or maybe the coroner that accidently almost the buried, the kid her brother alive and he was like wolves suck, my not at Fault Europe Ball, these or he was like. You think.

With my little sister one day we were at Chuckie Cheese for Birthday party. She was hanging out with the other parents. While I was off enjoying life nineteen. Eighty nine am I right,
suddenly my mom here's my little voice calling for help? She jumped into action and follows the sound to the ball pit. She looks they just in time to see my little face sinking down beneath the plastic balls or she likes to tell it. All I could see was your face being obscured by balls.

I darted in and out of stores, while my very pregnant mothers changed after me when she finally caught up with me out of breath and nauseous, see she's got me back up to carry me back out to the car. I must have known. I was in trouble because I just went limp in her arms and started to shout Oh I don't know what to do. I have heard people say those words. Kids. Are such debts? There's like I don't know this. This is like a peak stranger danger time and my mom says that she could feel everyone staring at her.

share my most embarrassing memory with fellow murder. He knows as an offering of levity between all the you know, murders one day, my college work, study job in the library, my daydreaming is interrupted when a coworker anxiously ass. Do you hear that points at the wall and I noticed it is buzzing. We we figure, might have something to do with the construction upstairs. So we called down a worker to come investigate sooner or later, though pretty much every class that shares a wall with us is now in the library trying to figure out what the noise is pretty soon you're, my boss say who's backpack. As this he's pointing out my backpack, which asylum against the wall, the noisy, while when he picks it up by it, grab hand all the while stops buzzing, then it I'll clicks in my head- and I remember there's a greater and my backpack, oh honey, and which must have been turned on when I trust my backpack against the wall has my boss and begins to unzip the bag. I make up the path
ethnic, sound dash over snatched the bag and scurry into the women's room to turn out the vibrator. When I come back for the rest of my shift, my middle aged boss, undergrad coworkers, the library, staff, construction workers, professors, students, etc are all giggling hopelessly everyone library that Monday morning knew that I had a vibrator in my backpack. Evidently, though, powerful it caused a public safety disturbance, and the library o MIKE, To this day, I have unsuccessfully maintain that it was an electric toothbrush. So thank you for finally giving me an opportunity to come clean about the vibrator in my backpack I very stay sexy But not so sexy that your vibrator goes off in the school library and don't get murdered and then not surprising, there's no knave. Thank you, no name that is cathartic,
and we ve all been they're mine was an airport being held Olaf's by the USA, because I forgot- and it's all right, you know eight ounces am I forgot to take it out of my I am afraid she was cracking up, she held it aloft now, and I would ask you to please don't do that, whereby an onlooker obvious, I'm saying on the planet has somebody like. Listen. People have needs people of sign libraries. Incredibly, sexy travelling lie, he dies. Hydrate idling is hell on the body, as we have learnt a lot of shame, shame, but I yeah what what Jude do I just put
Such a human story like to hear that in what the Hell's that an eyes a year to joining in on that like out what is that noise? Because you can't you think I've ever had the pad the like? You know she wasn't frozen and grabbed the backpack before he does it matter. Holding a large part is part as well. That's cruelty, they think I feel like hopefully I mean will never now button. In my idea, the middle aged man that picked up the backpack would not have EL did aloft out now No, no, he would have been more embarrassed and she was probably yes that I bet on that. I think I'll do I do. I think I would have froze because of which has been like this it's over vein. We would, of course, through the back back and, like I don't know, backpack that has been on our papers with my name on the top is in there. That's not mine. I don't know my unknown my initials on the outside and send us here I mean of it. We ve opened the floodgates, deal three to be anonymous, but feeling to share these with everyone else, because we have all been through them
probably not as bad as mine in hers, but Maybe maybe worse, do you have a worse embarrassment story? Don't have to put your name on it, we'd love to hear what we allow their aroused love to hear it. We're gonna show it to the light. So maybe you can take some of that off. I feel like once once you see here how funny it is you're gonna be like that's. That was worth it. It's XO it'll. It is, I think, cathartic like you said. I think it is that things like we ve all been. I I felt, like I spent most of my life having that embarrassment feeling so anytime. I hear a story. That's like that. I love it because it makes me feel better totally see feeling Eliza limits are being awake, a laugh, it yourself and its who cares. Laugh it yourself. I've vibrator laugh it lacks.
