A couple of weeks ago I drove to Kansas City for a weekend with several of my good friends.  The highlight of our weekend (besides just being together) was another visit to Atchison, Kansas.  Atchison's claim to fame is mainly from being the birthplace of Emilia Earhart. In recent years, however, Atchison has now become a destination for those interested in the paranormal.  It is the home of the Sally House, a house purportedly haunted by a little girl named Sally.  The Sally House has been shown on shows about hauntings which has resulted in a paranormal industry of sorts in Atchison.  Every October there are daily trolley tours around town to all haunted homes, some of which offer private tours.  Our first year to visit there we went on the trolley tour and found it very entertaining. Of course there are mediums (whose time slots fill up quickly) and a spirit fair (which we missed).

If you like to take pictures of orbs, then Atchison is a great place to go.  On the trolley tour we took photos of all the haunted homes, including the Sally house, and found numerous orbs in our pictures.
We even had a huge orb in our group photo after dinner at Paolucci's. (Very good Italian.) Actually it was the biggest orb we captured all evening.

                                        As far as I can tell the orb is behind the post.

                            Typical Atchison haunted house with orbs.

This year we skipped the trolley tour and went to a gallery on Saturday night which also included a dinner.  Not a bad deal for $45!  As it turned out the medium giving the gallery, Traci Bray,  was the same one I had made an appointment with the next day.  This gallery had about 60 people attending and the late husband my friend Karen came through.  Not surprisingly Karen went almost totally blank when Traci was talking to her.  Traci asked about a ferret and Karen had no clue what she could have been talking about.  After the gallery was over she remembered that her daughter did have a pet ferret at one time.  Traci had stated there was something significant about the end of Dec - first of Jan time frame and once again Karen had no clue.  Later when we were discussing the reading I asked her when she and Dave were married.  It was Jan 2.  I don't think this type of amnesia is unusual at readings (of course I've seen this when watching John Edward!).

At one point Traci described someone on a motorcycle who seemed to fall in slow motion.  This did not seem to fit for anyone since the room was silent and she went on to another spirit.  After the gallery was over did I remember a drunk I had literally helped pull a motorcycle off of who had fallen at a stop light.  He was an older man in his 60's and he actually got back on his bike and tried to ride away - but only managed to roll a few feet before he slowly fell to the side and was back on the street with his bike on him once again.  He died the day before I had to testify at his hearing and I couldn't help but wonder if maybe that was him. Not sure I would want to hear what he had to say!
