Mystery (Paranormal?) Photo


My husband, Greg, and I attended a funeral yesterday at a rural church in Northeast Tennessee, and only an hour later, we visited the downtown area of Rogersville, Tennessee where we took some pictures of this quaint little town.

I noticed after Greg had taken this one of me in the courthouse square, I thought it looked like ectoplasm in the background, but Greg thought it was merely a ray of sunlight with lens flare.  What do you think?  (I'm presently looking for a good psychic to view and interpret our recent photographs that we think might be paranormal, for my next paranormal book.)

Here's the mystery photo:

Please email me and let me know what you think:  (

Also, I'd just like to wish everyone a safe, happy Halloween!  Hope the weather is nice tonight where you are for all the trick-or-treaters and other Halloween celebrants.

If the weather is crummy, you might just want to stay home and watch "Travel Channel's" "Ghost Adventures" where the guys will feature Ireland and Mexico.  Enjoy!

Thanks for visiting!  Until next Saturday, Becky

June Tolliver House Ghost Photo


During this time of year, when ghosts rule, more people start searching for June Tolliver ghost info.

The June Tolliver House Last Year, with an Artist's Rendition of the June Tolliver House Ghost

It all started when my brother, who was just a school boy, took a picture of the June Tolliver house in Big Stone Gap, Virginia.  What showed up in that upstairs window, has led to much speculation.  Because of that picture, taken on an Easter Sunday, many years ago, I discovered that not only my brother, but that I also had a gift for taking paranormal photos.  Years later, strangely enough, when I got married, I discovered that my husband had this gift as well!

After a while, we had lots of paranormal photographs in our albums, so I decided to write a book about them.  The book, of course, is "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind."

Yes, I did write about the June Tolliver House ghost picture.  In fact, there is a whole chapter devoted to the June Tolliver House in my book.  The now famous ghost picture is even on the cover of the book.

People want to know how to get a copy of "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind."  On my "Spirit Photographs" blog, you can just click on my book widget at the top of the page, or on my Facebook page, you can click on "About," then under "Description," just click on "See more," and that will tell you where all you can get a copy for yourself and/or one for someone else.

Also, I've written several blog posts about the June Tolliver House.  Just take a look at my "Spirit Photographs" blog and see for yourself!

Ghost Hunt at Falcon Rest Mansion


On my 8/3/12 blog post, entitled "Falcon Rest," I told about our visit to the interesting old mansion, Falcon Rest in McMinnville, Tennessee.  We took a regular tour of the mansion during the daytime, but as I wrote on my previous post, it partly turned into a ghost tour, for it seems difficult to completely separate this mansion from the paranormal!

On our tour, I didn't get any paranormal photos inside the mansion, but I did get a couple outside the mansion.  The reason I didn't get any on the inside was that we weren't allowed to take pictures inside at that time.*

However, if you go on their ghost hunt this month, you will be allowed to try to photograph (with a low-light camera) the mansion to see if you can capture any ghostly images!  Also, you may take your camcorder, audio recorder, etc.

These "Tag-Along Ghost Hunts" will be led by the "Ghost Hunters of Southern Tennessee," to see if they can "add to evidence of otherworldly inhabitants obtained during four years of previous tag-along ghost hunts."

The tours are October 30 and 31, and November 1.  For more ghost-hunt-tour details, see F.Y.I. below.  (Check out their website.  It's really interesting, scary, and fun!)  

*I'm hoping to get permission to put the paranormal photos that I took in my next paranormal book, probably out next year.

Falcon Rest Mansion
2645 Faulkner Springs Road
McMinnville, Tennessee

Hope you enjoy the tour, if you decide to go.  Greg and I will be unable to attend this year, but we're planning on being there next October!

Thanks for visiting!  Until next Saturday, Becky

Halloween Season Must-sees


There are many great Halloween-type things this year that I'd like to make you aware of in the next few weeks leading up to Halloween.

A Supposed-to-Be-Haunted House in Our Town (Do you see anything strange?) 

First of all, there's an interesting, really well-done all-year-long blog devoted to "celebrate all things Halloween,"  " Something wicKED this way comes."  It's in high gear right now that the Halloween season is almost upon us.

The blogger for the above-mentioned blog is Ked from my old hometown of Big Stone Gap, Virginia.  In fact, he and his family were our next-door neighbors.  He got his love of Halloween from his mother who would often dress up in a creepy costume on Halloween night, knock on our door, and scare the living daylights out of us!  It was all in fun, and we loved it!

So, to put some scary and fun in your Halloween, be sure and check out Ked's blog:

Reminder, tomorrow (Sunday) night, The Weather Channel's new series, "American Super/Natural" is on  10/9 c with an episode entitled, "Legend of the Gray Man."  The preview, in my opinion, was pretty scary!

Also, the next episode of Syfy's "Ghost Hunters" (Wednesday 9/8 c) involves the overwhelming smell of chocolate during one of their investigations which is a very appropriate smell just in time for Halloween (as in "trick-or-TREAT"! Yum!).

On my next post, I'll fill you in on a must-see and -do haunted place that I believe you'd love if you the paranormal is your thing!

Thanks for visiting!  Until next Saturday (if you dare!), Becky

The Paranormal on TV


It looks like even "The Weather Channel" is getting into the paranormal, at least for a while, as this is the season for all things paranormal.

"The Weather Channel" has a new show, entitled "American Super/Natural." This show (To quote "The Weather Channel") "gives viewers a never before seen look into how weather can shape local legends.  Small town Americana has been haunted for hundreds of years by monsters that weather created and and folklore fostered...Each episode...features a legend's fascinating origin story, history, weather, and first hand accounts told by the people who believe these tales."

"American Super/Natural" begins this Sunday night, October 5 at 10/9 c with "The Horrifying Legend of Moll Dyer."

I just recently became aware of a show on "The Learning Channel" ("TLC"), "Angels Among Us," which features psychic Rosie Cepero who can communicate with guardian angels.  She shares angels' messages on the show in the form of readings for those who want them.

"Angels Among Us" is on Sundays at 10/9 c.

Big news: The popular Syfy series, "Ghost Hunters," returns this Wednesday, October 8 at 9/8 c for their tenth anniversary and 200th episode celebration with one of the show's founders, Grant Wilson, coming back to help TAPS celebrate.

The rest of October, "Ghost Hunters" is on Wednesdays at 10/9 c.

Syfy also features the "31 Days of Halloween" in October.

It looks like there's plenty of paranormal on TV to keep us busy this month!  Enjoy!

Thanks for visiting!  Until next Saturday, Becky
