About Me

My photo
Behind Every Cloud is a Kindred Spirit (BECKS)I lost my grandfather when I was 17. I had a VERY difficult time getting over it. How could I still communicate with him? I loved him so much I didn't think I could live without him. I read everything I could get my hands on to do with the "afterlife" and that started it all...the love of Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. I have been researching the paranormal for over 30 years!! It is my way of staying in touch with my grandfather. Being a Ghost Hunter is not always as exciting as it seems on TV. Many nights I have sat in the dark and not a thing happened. BUT it is those times you DO get that one voice, that one unexplainable picture or have an experience that sends chills down your back that makes it sooo worth it all!!! My purpose of this blog is not to make people believe in ghosts but maybe to open their minds just a little bit... I LOVE this crazy thing called Ghost Hunting. It is as much a part of me as breathing. I am just a girl that refuses to accept we can't still contact our loved ones after they die. My grandfather won't let me.

Ghost stories as children

So, with Halloween coming and everything being all scary, it makes me think about the "old" ghost stories that I was told as a kid.  Growing up, in my family, was soooo fun!!!  My mom and dad always did really cool stuff for us on Halloween.  They would pile us all the the back of a pickup truck and take us down to the river along dark, overshadowed dirt roads at midnight.  Dad would kill the truck and act like it wouldn't start.  Just scary the pants off us!!!!!  They rigged up chairs to fall in the attic, lights going out, you name it, my parents always made Halloween such a fun time for us kids and all the neighborhood kids as well.  Thanks, mom and dad for all the sleepless nights.....lol

Sorry, back to the ghost stories.  I thought it would be fun if everyone would tell about the ghost stories that they remember as a kid.  The one I remember was of the MONKEY PAW!!!!!!  Just monkey paw alone sounds scary right.  To make a long story short, if I recall the story went something like this..... a sailor came back from the sea and brought a monkey's paw.  This monkey's paw would craw around and kill people, blood would be everywhere and just when you have every ones attention....you grab them and scream!!!!!!  Yes, as a 6 or 7 year old kid, it works every time!!!!!

So, what's your story???  I would love to hear it because I may need to use it sometime. lol
