DODGE GHOST HUNTERS GEAR UP FOR CENTENNIAL...
That's what the title of the town's newspaper story [Wed. Mar. 9/11] was...?
The biggest thing that I had stressed the ABSOLUTE MOST was that we weren't SURE whether we wanted to DO something for the centennial or NOT!
We are are only a group of "two" people!
We do have the capabilities to run such an event [we've done tours before] but the thing is...will we be able to get to experience any of the centennial too? The article states day and night!
I HAVE to have a float for the parade, for my business, as they want to have at least 100 entries. With the addition of the ghost tours I should have a float for that too? That means we don't get to watch it! As a business, I HAVE to DONATE prizes to whatever is planned to help fund them. Whine, whine, whine....;(
Our two other part-time investigators [4 hrs out of town] are planning on attending our festivities, but NOT to have to VOLUNTEER THEIR TIME helping us run these tours! They would do it, if we were pressed for help, but I don't think that would be fair to them either!
Thing is.... I KIND OF WANT to do it anyways...?
Most will say the EGO wants to show its ugly face and that part is wrong! I HATE public speaking and being in the lime light...most who know me, know that this is a FACT!
The thing I want the MOST is to see this court house achieve it's "Moment of Fame"! My hope was [with this article], was to open the eyes to the possibility of doing this permanently as a tourist attraction! Something to generate funds to help run the museum and gallery...which are deep in debt!
And maybe along with it...will be the opening of some very narrow eyes...:)
To be able to bring this medium out into the open with all the proof we have amassed is fantastic! Granted, the only ones who will attend will be the ones who already believe or are close to it. Still, they will pass the word no matter what...:)!
And if we are recognized along the way...then my family has something to brag about...;)
Guess that IS the EGO talking....;}!
The reporter, Fram Dinshaw [ The Citizen], starts his report...
"Two Dodge ghost hunters conducting a scientific investigations of apparitions in the courthouse are looking to lay on tours for locals and visitors at the Centennial party and make the town famous with paranormal seekers from the USA and Britain."...
With other excerpts...
"While touring the courthouse, this reporter saw an unexplained flash of light above a door off the hallway on the courthouse's upper level."
"The Citizen's camera went from a full battery to just one quarter after an hour in the courthouse"
I wasn't too crazy about his explanation of what "Orbs" are after what we told him [his note taking wasn't too great]..."which are bright, fast-moving collections of dust, formed by the energy left behind after a person dies."
Collections of DUST formed by energy?
We said..."when people die, [don't move on] they are this ball of energy, generally in the shape of a sphere. In order to move or change, they need energy. They will draw energy from anything around them, whether it's a living human or batteries! These show up on pictures as bright balls but are NOT to be confused with dust motes!"
"a masonic-style mirror has mysterious lines across the glass that bothe mother and daughter say are the work of orbs."
It's NOT a masonic-style mirror....it's a mirror in a masonic bench!
Plus we said..."the mirror gives off strange lines and shapes depending on direction of light being shone on it? It's not etched on as the back is sealed!"
Not once did we say that orbs did it! But then maybe they did and we didn't know it...
I was so happy that there was no picture of us...even though we did get all gussied up...;}
What they did show was creepy enough...that part I'll give them credit for.
They showed a darken shot of the creepy mannequin that scares PoD every time and the vault where the skull was kept!
Other than that we did get a half a page of free advertising...
That just might land us up in more grief...
We got to scare a complete stranger plus make him a believer in the fact that our court house IS CREEPY...if not haunted!
