About 5 weeks ago I had the sudden urge to pack up things from my parents’ house. I just knew it had to be done. About 3 weeks after I packed they listed their house for sale. I was a bit freaked out by this and so was my brother and sister-in-law because I had given them some of the packed items that they were storing at my mom and dad’s. The reason for the move was not only because they needed less room! My father listed shortly after my sister-in-law was attacked by something that wasn’t there. It even left marks on her leg. I was a witness to the scratches. Whatever it was that jumped on me must have got her too. I guess two people saying that they were attacked by something that wasn’t there (most possibly a ghost or demon) was enough for my father to go bye bye lol I hope whatever it is doesn’t follow them to their new house!

Last night hubby and I were running a bit late and didn’t end up going out for dinner until past 9:30pm! We headed downtown looking for a place that served Steak & Seafood. I suggested the Keg Mansion because the food is good, there is a lot of history, the ambiance is wonderful and it’s said to be haunted! My husband loved the idea too so we drove right over. Parking for customers is free so that was great and we were seated right away, but not before I got some information from the hostess. I asked her where the most activity was. She answered casually stating that we would find some if we went up the staircase to the second floor by the bar. I was like, “no”, “I meant paranormal activity”. She responded, ”so did I”! She went on to tell us that we could eat on the main floor and then go upstairs to see. She went on to tell us that the 2nd floor lady’s bathroom is another spot and that sometimes woman have been locked in the stalls because “that is where Mrs. Massey died”. She said to go up to the 3rd floor and take a peek too, even though it is locked. I was so excited, I couldn’t even wait for dinner to be over! The meal was very good and the room we were in was so amazing, with the detailed wood work, stain glass windows, fireplace encased with glazed colorful tiles. Every inch of that room had such fine hand craftsmanship, so much so, that I could not stop looking around. The feeling I was getting was very strong energy and I felt very alive! I wasn’t afraid at all and I kind of felt that the spirits there liked all the attention or energy the Keg patrons were giving them. After our meal we were left to venture about the mansion! It was so wild and such a trip. I went to the ladies room and instructed my husband to save me if I wasn’t back in 5 minutes lol Nothing happened, I didn’t see any ghosts at all, so I met him outside. I was very drawn to this oval like vestibule that overlooked the main entrance. I referenced Haunted Toronto by John Robert Columbo and found out that’s where one of Mrs. Massey’s maids had hung herself after finding Mrs. Massey dead. Then after our look around the 2nd floor we headed up to the 3rd. A couple of fellows were right behind us and talking about how the Keg Mansion is haunted. I was right up front in center peeking in the locked glass door, it was dimly lit and I could make out a large painting and a couple other rooms. My husband was right behind me shining his cell phone over my head to help me see better. The two gentlemen asked if we saw anything… I responded, “nope”. Even still, just being in such a grand and charming home, like the Keg Mansion, was enough for me. Next time maybe I’ll bring my Ouija and go up to the middle of the 2nd floor, by the window, and have a seat at the built in cushioned bench. lol Honestly I am too chicken to mess with Ouija! I heard demons actually communicate and not spirits so I think it is best to leave it alone. Anyways, I rate the Keg Mansion 4.5 stars out of 5! I will be back and if you see someone with a Ouija there, or Tarot cards, then you’ll know who it is :D

I was at a couple thrift shops yesterday and I happened upon something really great. It was a circa 1960 talking board by Canada’s own Copp Clark. They were making boards since 1861! They started with a wood board and then hardboard like the one I have newly acquired. It has a genie on the box cover and even comes with instructions. The planchette is wood and has 3 removable legs. I have tried to find the exact date of the board, but have had no luck. I did find out; however, that William Fuld, the original creator of Ouija, contacted the Copp Clark company himself in 1960 demanding that they not use the Ouija name. His lawyers tried even way before that in 1919, but they ignored their request. They are no longer in existance though. For more details please visit Mr William Fuld’s website! http://www.williamfuld.com/ouija_factories_international.html I don’t have my camera on me yet but I found the exact same board featured on www.graveaddiction.com They have other cool ouijas on there too so it’s definitely worth a look.
I’m not sure if I want to keep the board at this point though. I have 2 others so that is more than enough, but it’s so unique and special. My dad actually found it accidentally lol I swear I went over the board game section with a fine tooth comb and never saw it. The employees were also putting out things at the same time so that might explain it. Ouija boards are abundant on Ebay if you would like to buy one right away because they don’t always show up at thrift shops that often. Please see below for current Ouija auctions on Ebay Canada. I also found some books on Amazon Canada that deal with Ouija. Haunted Toronto and A Haunting DVD is also included as well.
This past Friday I experienced quite the series of unusual events. I am not a very superstitious person and I personally look forward to those special Fridays. I always enjoy a good scary movies or to delve further into the paranormal… I really appreciate the supernatural on those days. Well, I usually do all of those things anyways, but even more so on the 13th. On this particular Friday the 13th my husband and I were driving west on the 401 when it really started to rain, monsoon like, and my husband mentioned what day it was. As soon as he did an 18 wheeler nearly side swiped us. If he didn’t slam on the breaks we would have been toast. I do admit I screamed like a little girl! My heart nearly jumped out of my throat. First the crazy rainstorm and then the near death experience. OMG what was going to happen next!!!??? Well then we had to stop for gas so when hubby was pumping the octain our car started to roll. I was a bit shaky from the prior incident that I was a bit delayed in popping the emergency break on. My husband said I wanted to watch a horror movie, however, I did not want it in 4D lol! I wonder if people who believe that Friday the 13th is negative actually amplify it’s detrimental effects. It’s as though my husband was tuning in the bad vibes to actually cause almost harmful things to occure. Thank the Lord I was there to cancel the negative energy! We were very lucky to walk away without a scratch.
