MOST MEMORABLE ENCOUNTER: One that sticks out the most a group of friends and I were hanging out at a friend's house which she claimed it to be haunted, obviously I didn't believe it just heard stories. As we were all hanging out in the living room, all of a sudden one of the vases flew off the fire place and no one bumped into it or touched it. All our jaws dropped because we were all in shock.

My favorite as of now is my scorpion I kept as a pet, he's currently in a jar of formaldehyde in my dining room on display. He's placed right next to a haunted doll I have as well, along with a fox tail, mummified rat, cow jaw, and remains of a bearded dragon. Aside from the oddities, I like knitting and painting in my free time.


MOST MEMORABLE ENCOUNTER: I'm quite a skeptic, so I've never had a "bone-chilling" type of experience except for once. I had Barnaby do an investigation on my haunted doll while I was working and nearing the end I decided to go check on the gadgets and gizmos to see if anything was going on. I attempted to walk through the doorway but I felt like I got stopped in my tracks. I couldn't move, I was shaking, and I felt a wave of chills run through my whole body. I've never felt anything like it. I never made it back into the room alone that day.

MOST MEMORABLE ENCOUNTER: "My Father died of cancer when I was 17. We talked extensively about reaching out to let us (my mother and I) know he made it. He did, in fact he called and left a message. This was at the time of home caller ID. It said "Unknown caller" I went to check the machine it was staticy and sorta strange. My father had a very distinct voice and he said, "I'm good". After that for many years, I would get these weird texts with no number and a strange D with a line through it only as the sender, which was nowhere to be found on the keyboard, and nothing in the body of the text. Just that. I also got him on EVP a few times and a few years ago a ton of odd pictures were taken with my phone in my bedroom at night on his birthday. Not to mention he likes to knock in my kitchen. There is a long story to that though. Just know your loved ones are around guys."
