Ghost Burger with a Side of Fries

 

Rob and I went on a walking Ghost Tour of historic Annapolis, Maryland,

but the Spirits were anxious to communicate with us before the tour even began!

We arrived early and enjoyed a leisurely stroll down Main Street followed by a relaxing dinner before the tour. We chose the DRY 85 restaurant at random and after we ordered, I suggested that we get the equipment ready and do a quick battery test.

As soon as we set the KII meter on the table, it started going crazy!

We’ve never seen it light up like that. There had to be an electrical cause, so we moved the meter all around the booth, going high and low, but the lights stopped whenever we moved it. When we set it in the middle of the table between us, it started going crazy again.

The table was solid wood, but I still wasn’t convinced that it was a Spirit so in a smart-alecky tone I asked,

“Are there any Ghosties here?”

The KII lights stopped, and then started again.

I began to take this situation a little more seriously.

This time I asked,

“If you’re a ghost, can you make it stop and start again?”

It did.

It stopped, then started immediately, just as I asked.

I asked the waitress if she knew of any ghosts in the restaurant and she hadn’t heard of any…

but I guarantee that they have one.

Or perhaps it was an anxious Spirit who didn’t want to wait to be mentioned on the tour.

Either way, it was fun to have contact before the tour began!

The Most Haunted Building in Annapolis!

I won’t spoil all of the wonderful ghost stories on the tour, but it was interesting that the first story was about Charles Campbell and his fiancé.

As the tour guide described the hauntings from the tragic couple who never saw their wedding day,

the first word from the Ghost Radar was:

Married

Is that great or what?

Blackbeard Was Here!

It is interesting to note that the next night, I saw a black shadow figure in my house. It was so real that I insisted someone was there.

Of course, there was no one.

Coincidence? I don’t believe in them.

Those Annapolis ghosts are frisky and I can’t wait to visit them again!

Words from the Other Side:

Wagon, Series, Visit, Prove, Command, Bear, Most

“The wagon tale about old Charles is one of many in a series of ghost stories about our fair town.

If you plan to visit us, you’d better prove that you have a healthy respect for the dead.

For if not, we’ll issue the command to release the Spirit Bear.

Most will shiver in fear…

and only the stong will survive.”

Angel Garden or Alien Sanctuary? How About Both!

Nestled amongst a beautiful community on St. John’s Lane in Ellicott City, the Whipps Garden Cemetery is a one-acre sanctuary full of life.

Started in 1855, it was used as a cemetery until the early 1900’s. When the cemetery became inactive, it was overgrown, damaged and nearly destroyed, until it was saved and restored in 1987. There are a variety of native plant species, pathways, benches and old tombstones making it a garden paradise.

But plants aren’t the only thing alive in this garden!

Rob and I could feel the energy before we got out of the car. What we found left me speechless.

During the investigation, Rob said he felt as if someone had their hand on his heart. When we reviewed the pictures I found…

Man and Rob

That is my father looking down on Robby. It is my father’s brow, nose and mouth.

My father. He was the one holding his hand on Robby’s heart.

In a few days it will be the anniversary of my father’s death. Coincidence? I don’t believe in them.

My father was the Angel, then I found the Alien. Here’s what happened.

I took this picture…

Arms and Figure

On the left it looks like arms and a head tilted to the right. On the right it looks like a small Alien.

I couldn’t figure out who these two were, so I went back the next night and tried to take the same picture. I didn’t have much time and I was getting ready to give up finding the exact spot when – Plop! A huge raindrop fell on the top of my head. It hadn’t rained in eight hours. I looked up and realized that I was in the right spot. It was as if they smacked me on the top of the head to make me see.

I took a picture and I couldn’t believe what I saw. Remember, this was the next day, in the same spot…

Figure 1

Cat Alien

So I said, “Did I really see that?” And I took another picture in the same spot, and I got…

Figure B

Cat Alien Orb

It was as if they were saying, “Duh!” The Cat Alien was still there, but this time there was an Orb at his feet.

Then I asked, “What about the figure with the arms?” I took another picture in the same spot. The Cat Alien was gone, but now there was an Orb where the figure with the arms was.

Arms Orb 1

Arms Figure Orb

I then asked for a picture with no Cat Alien, no Arms Figure and no Orbs to show that they were really there, and I took another picture and…

They were all gone.

An Angel, an Alien, and still we got more.

This was a face that was in one of the collection boxes. I went back the next night and took the same picture, but there was no face and no way that I could recreate it.

There there’s the Kneeling Man.

I went back the next night and I found that the “body” is a bench, but the way that the man’s head is tilted, and considering the other amazing encounters in this garden, I believe this is a man kneeling in the cemetery.

Then there is this Tombstone Spirit. He’s just hanging out as he rises out of the tombstone…

And more Orbs…

This is a very light Orb, to the left of the yellow flower, but it was one of three Orbs in one picture.

The KII meter was going off the entire investigation like we’ve never seen – flashing red and going crazy, and the Ghost Radar was talking up a storm.

The Whipps Garden Cemetery is truly a wondrous place that I heartily recommend.

You will be enchanted with all of the life, both Earthly and from the Other Side.

The Whipps Spirits

“I’m British!”

There are no shy Spirits here. We promote spiritual growth and we are not bound by Earthly ties. We choose to remain until our job is done. We touch your leg, we hide under your bench, and we try to sell you on the idea that we are here!

We know there is division amongst you regarding your opinions about us, but don’t be weak! Stand your ground and leave your mark on this world while you can. Generally, there are many factors to prevent you from obtaining your goals, but soon you will be buried like us so take your best shot and get involved! Deal with life as it comes at you. Don’t coast through life! Take the wheel in both hands and market your talents. Not for money, but for the growth of your soul. You have been given the great gift of Life and you have found your way to us, so know that you are in loving company.

Are you acting like a pig with your life? Are you making a mess of it?

Look at the Circle of your Life Cycle and consider how appropriate your actions are. Does your life pass the Smell Test? Do your actions make you mad?

Come and see us. We’re here for you. You don’t have to believe.

We’ve given you proof!

The Next Investigation:

Robby and I will be on vacation next week, but we’ll continue to explore and investigate. It won’t be in Ellicott City, but it will be in Maryland.

Give A Little And Get A Magical Gift from a King

I didn’t think it was possible to get another picture that would equal a picture of a Gnome, a Tree Spirit or a Ghost Dog, but…

We did.

When Robby and I started our investigations, I began secretly asking the Fairies to let me take a picture of them. I’ve had glimpses of them out of the corner of my eye and I’ve felt them – ever so fleetingly, but I’ve never actually seen one.

I kept hoping and unbelievably, my wish was granted.

Here’s how it happened.

This week’s investigation took us to the Ellicott Family Cemetery. Just off Main Street, on Old Columbia Pike, a Maryland Historical Society Road sign says: “Friends Meeting House and Graveyard”. The Ellicott brothers created this burial ground around 1775.

We always visit our investigation sites twice and on our first visit, not only did we get very little activity, but I was eaten alive by mosquitoes and we left pretty much empty handed.

Except for a picture of a Crabby Guy.

The picture is pretty cool, but this guy doesn’t look too happy.

The next time we visited the cemetery, I had an idea.

We took our fantastic Gnome and Tree Spirit picture after we had delivered a few gifts to the Ghost Dog, so I thought maybe we could sweeten the Crabby Guy with a few flowers for the graves, and maybe a little laughter.

I was humbled by the gifts we were given.

I picked flowers from my yard and I didn’t have enough flowers for all the graves, but I spread them around as best that I could. Robby and I also had fun.

Well, I had fun and Robby was embarrassed by his crazy mother.

I used the voice recorder and KII meter and I “interviewed” the spirits as if they were on a talk-show and I was the host. I went up to the tombstones, put the microphone up close and said,

“So John, tell the audience what you have to say for yourself.”

Silence.

“Oh, your wife is the talker in your family? Now, that’s not what she said. You’d better speak up and defend yourself.”

Robby’s response was, “Mom! This isn’t a TV show!”

Maybe not, but the activity on the Ghost Radar increased exponentially from the time before, and I would later find out that we captured incredible photos from the Other Side.

Flowers and laughter chased away the Crabby Guy and brought us magic.

Here’s what we got:

I got a picture of someone peeking out at us from behind a gravestone. Not a shadow – this spirit is in full color.

I got a picture of a colt – lounging on the cemetery wall. Or could it be a Unicorn?

I got a picture of three Fairies. One of them is the Fairy King, complete with a crown!

We got the word “Bronwen” on the Ghost Radar, so I’m calling him King Bronwen.

I know this one is hard to see, so I’ve done some extra outlines. Please forgive my outlines!

King Bronwen was sitting on top of one of the founders of Ellicott City’s tombstone: Andrew Ellicott, which is right next to his brother and other founder, John Ellicott.

John and Andrew Ellicott – and Fairies!

My belief in fairies, gnomes and nature spirits didn’t require photographic evidence, but now that I have been given his incredible gift, I feel as though I’ve been touched by magic. The small bouquet of flowers could never begin to equal the Kingly gift that I was given, but I will be forever grateful for their generosity.

Words from the Other Side:

Soft Differ Position Mental Worried How Early Listen Here Part Trip Gold Rapidly Body Season Older Quick Definition Courage Frog Keep Shout Worry I’ll Bronwen Too Yesterday Whom Limited Above Hand Child Cut Important Poor Familiar Got Life Everything Sun Poetry Atom Engine

King Bronwen’s Sonnet

Tread softly on this hallowed ground.

Travelers from near and far may differ in their positions on the mental state of those who visit us, but for the worried, fear not.

How we came to be here is no mystery. Come early or late and listen, for those of us who dwell here stay because a part of us enjoyed the trip that was our life. Gold can fly rapidly from a physical body, but seasons pass as we get older and we quickly learn the definition of life and the courage to live it.

Learning to delight in the joy of a frog will keep you grounded.

Learning to shout your joy will keep worry away.

I’ll be here, King Bronwen, too and I will be with you yesterday and tomorrow. Whom you chose to come with is limited only by your imagination so rise above your doubts and give me your hand, as a trusting child to a loving parent. Cut loose and live for every day is important! Poor is the soul who grows familiar with failure and forgets how he got there. Live life as it is, where everything is precious and kissed by the Sun.

See poetry in an atom and it will fuel your soul’s engine giving you the power to live!

The Next Investigation:

Robby enjoyed the Ellicott Family Cemetery so much that he wants to do it again! He’ll be at Karate camp next week (he’s a Brown Belt), so I’m going to take this time to work on my novel, Both Sides.  We’ll be looking for another site to investigate as soon as Robby returns from camp.
