More Scary Stories to Tell in a Blog

Saturday night, Richy, his younger daughter and I went to a cemetery. It was the one that our old house backed up to. (We lived practically on top of a cemetery. That's another blog in itself.)

We just planned to walk around a little and do an EVP sweep. Honestly, I didn't event think about whether or not we'd see or feel anything. I had a suspicion I would be very bored after a while of walking around, but I knew that is just sometimes part of the "job". Not everything's got activity, and certainly not on command. So, Richy was facing in one direction just a few feet away from us and then he turns back and says, "I just saw...a pair of legs walking." He sounded confused about it, like he couldn't understand why he'd seen that. His daughter and I hadn't seen it, so we were like, "oh ok." And we went about our business, walking together toward where he thought he saw the legs. We stopped to face a row of houses. We were about 80 feet away from them, if not more. We didn't want to go any closer because we didn't want to pick up the sounds from the houses. So we were standing there and then his daughter was like, "I just saw the leg thing. I didn't know what you meant by just legs walking, but now I do." So we just kept standing there waiting to see it again. And I saw a shadowy head and shoulders come out from behind a tree. But no one else saw it so I was like, maybe someone's over there. But then I saw it again, only the head wasn't as distinguishable. It was like an oval shadow that fluidly came out from behind the tree again and went back. Very cool. We checked around the tree and there was no one around.

As we walked in another area later on, Richy said he felt something in this one direction. So we all stopped and turned back. As soon as I got within 5 feet of Richy the hair on my legs, arms and head all felt like they were standing on end. And the hair on my head kept pulling tighter and tighter and tighter. I couldn't believe how strong it was. I guess I walked into whatever it was he felt. It was so rad. It slowly went away after about 30 seconds. It wasn't scary at all to me. Just a really cool experience.

We got a couple of semi-lame EVPs but nothing to write home about. We didn't have the other equipment with us so that was the extent of it. The personal experiences were so worth going, though. They both saw their first apparitions...partial body, but still LOL.


So quick updates - we had our interview with the reporter for the paper. That went very well. We had our little photo shoot with a photographer from the paper a few days later. Our article will be run this Wednesday. Exciting! We've got a meeting coming up this Sunday. I hope by then, since our article will have been out there, we will have lots of investigations to line up and discuss.

I started school last week and in one of my classes we had to write down on a sheet of paper, one thing that no one could guess just by looking at you. So I wrote that I belong to a paranormal investigation group. So when it got read and they had me reveal myself, this girl asked if I had done the Lake Worth Playhouse. She thought I was part of another group. They were charging $60 a head for people to come and investigate with them on Halloween at the Playhouse. It has come to my attention, for people who watch Ghost Hunters International, Robb was the co-founder of that group. Pretty cool. Anyway, so no that wasn't us hehe. The girl gave me a name of someone to talk to if we wanted to investigate there. She said we would probably get the go-ahead. And even cooler, the paper wants to go with us if we do. They asked us if they could tag along. Yay!

In the news!

The founder of our paranormal investigation group posted an ad in the paper to let people know we are available and not-for-profit. I'm not so sure how that turned out. But the newspaper - the really big newspaper for our area has asked for a full group interview for a story. We'll be interviewed this Saturday most likely. Hurray! I hope they're not just doing this to be funny. I hope it brings us some more business. I love doing home investigations, so bring 'em on!
