  1. I have seen that lady brushing her hair. I wanted to ask her out on a date, but was too scared to do it and that is no bunch of lies.

    • I finally mustered the courage to ask “Emily,” the female ghost out on a date. At first she was a bit reticent; however, I was persistent in asking and she finally agreed to accompany me on a dinner date. It quickly became apparent that I was the only one that could see her, because the waitstaff at the restaurant looked at me like I was nuts when I ordered dinner for both of us. By the end of the meal, it looked like Emily had not touched her plate, so I had to eat her entree as well. All in all, we had a nice time together, thought she’s not much of a talker.

      • Did she look transparent? Also, I have seen her brushing her hair, but when I was going up to her she turned around, smiled, and vanished into thin air. Kind of scary. Then this hotel worker came up to me asking if I was ok and saying that he knows what I saw, and smiles, and walks away…… like wtf!!!!! I also caught a pic of Emily brushing her hair before she vanished.

          Emily is not transparent and I must say that uninformed characterization of my bride seems a little insensitive. We enjoy a great relationship. She might inexplicably walk through a wall or door now and then, but I gotta tell ya she’s real. How else can you explain the birth of Little Elmo; he’s my pride and joy.

  2. That dang Pat Gray dates all them hot ghosts. Just ’cause he’s the Earl of Cavendish, that don’t make him nuthin’ special! Guess he never learned how to share.

  3. Emily and I have decided to “tie the knot.” She’s on heck of a gal and never complains a bit when I watch sport on TV. I really couldn’t ask for a more quiet life partner. She’s the one for my alright.

  4. Emily and I have decided to “tie the knot.” She’s one heck of a gal and never complains a bit when I watch sports on TV. I really couldn’t ask for a more quiet and calm life partner. She’s the one for my alright, you can bet your boots on that!

  5. Big news, Emily and I are expecting! She’s a fertile lass, so we’re really hoping for twins!

  6. It’s a boy! Little Elmo was born last weekend! It was a home birth, because the doctors seem to have issues with obtaining vitals on Emily at the hospital. The kid is already exceptional at hide-and-seek; when company comes over, no one can seem to find him. He definitely takes after his mother.

  7. I used to sell real estate in Ludlow for many years..back in the 80-90’s..we also thought “Glimmerstone” in Proctorsville was haunted as well…and the “The Castle” on 103..and several others which I can’t think of right at this moment…I lived in Chester, only knew of one of the stone houses in the “Stone Village” along Rte. 103 which was supposed to be haunted..I’d freak out if I ever saw “a visitor from another dimension.”

  8. I may have gotten it stuck between the board, but I do know that Glimmerstone is in Cavendish, not Proctorsville.

  9. That Pat Gray told me he was takin’ me out ghost huntin’. Next thing I know, the sumbitch drops me off in the middle of friggin’ nowhere and laughs like hell as he drives away. I caught up with him a couple days later and asked him what that was all about. He looked at me, grinned and said “hey Jim, you wanna go ghost huntin’ again? I ain’t been able to figure this out. I’m thinkin’ he might have some kinda mental problems or something. I dunno.

    I was out for an evening stroll in Proctorsville recently with my lovely bride. I’m not 100% sure, but I think I saw the ghost of Moose Surething out behind Singleton’s.

  11. There have been far too many strange sightings and unexplained phenomena lately in our neck of the woods. I’ve decided to seek some answers and have thus formed the Black River Valley Paranormal Research Organization (BRVPRO). You can bet your ass we’re gonna get to the bottom of all this these bizarre happenings, ’cause we ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts!

  12. We went out on one helluva ghost hunt last night because, according to local lore, there is tremendous paranormal activity here in the Black River Valley during the Sturgeon Moon. I never knew we had sturgeon in the Black River, so that was quite a surprise. In any event, we captured quite a lot of evidence that we will be sifting through over the next few days. I’m pretty sure we’re going to be able to make a confirmation on the recent activity near Singleton’s Store. I’ll keep you posted.

    • After exhaustive hours reviewing the recent footage from the night of the Sturgeon Moon investigation, we have an update on the purported paranormal activity associated with Singleton’s Store. We are somewhat disappointed to report that we learned it was Jim Butler running around with a sheet, rather than a true spectral presence. Apparently, he was hoping to get our attention and join the BRVPRO team. At least we cleared this up.

      We appreciate Jim’s efforts and welcome him to BRVPRO. He’s gonna be one helluva contributor to this investigative team. As a scholarly research organization, we’re gonna solve a lot of the mysteries in this area, you can bet your ass on that!

  13. I got called out on a special investigation last night. I am excited to report that BRVPRO has confirmed the presence of a bigfoot in Smokeshire! For obvious reasons, we’re keeping the exact location confidential.

  14. Well, news of the Smokeshire Bigfoot sure traveled fast. BRVPRO has now been hired to investigate the many reported sighting of the Okemo Yeti. Reports of the Okemo Yeti predate the existence of the ski area, so this is going to be one heck of an interesting investigation. We plan to send out Jim Butler in a female Yeti suit in an attempt to lure in a breeding male. I have to believe this tactic is foolproof, but only time will tell.

    • Everything was going perfectly this past weekend on our first attempt to lure in the breeding male Yeti using Jim Butler as our “female” Yeti in an amazingly realistic costume. In fact, we had the male within 100 yards of Jim, unbeknownst to him, until suddenly Jim decided to pop open a can of beer that we had no idea he had hidden in the Yeti suit. Let me tell you, all hell broke loose then. The male Yeti let out a roar that they must have heard in Tunbridge and took of running. That brought a quick conclusion to the investigation for the night. We obviously need to figure out the best path forward. I believe the Yeti suit can still work, but we definitely will need to search Jim before we deploy him again.

      • Okemo Yeti update: we ran into a slight snag during our follow-up investigation this past weekend, and I do mean a BIG snag. Jim was briefly abducted by the male Yeti, who clearly thought he had found a mate. The Yeti tossed Jim over his shoulder and had begun to head off into the woods. Fortunately, we had the hindsight to bring a team of dogs with us. They surrounded the Yeti, who proceeded to drop Jim and run away, roaring like a sumbitch as he went. The good news is we have definitely confirmed the presence of the Okemo Yeti, but I don’t think we have the capacity to actually capture him, he is just way too big and strong to mess with given our present capabilities.

  15. Now that we’ve proven beyond the shadow of a doubt the presence of the Smokeshire Bigfoot and the Okemo Yeti, we are going to try to get back to our primary focus of seeking explanations for the paranormal. We’re heading out on a little camping trip to the Bennington Triangle. There have been many strange occurrences in that area, and we can’t wait to set up camp on Glastenbury Mountain. Who the hell knows what we might find. There have been reports of UFOs, multiple human disappearances, and even a bigfoot known as the Bennington Monster. I thought we were moving away from hairy cryptids for a while, but we may run smack dab into one just the same. This is gonna be our biggest and best investigation to date. Wish us luck and I will definitely keep everyone posted!

    Pat Gray

    • Well, we’re down here in tents on Glastenbury Mountain and it is extreme. Cell service is completely wacky. Biggest problem is that Jim has already gone missing. Knowing him, this is either something stupid or we should be calling in help. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.

      Pat Gray

  16. We have experienced the most unbelievable events of our lives since we set up camp here last night on Glastenbury Mountain. We found Jim, but he’s worse for wear. He mutters things about the Bennington Monster, but we don’t know what to make of it. There have been strange lights in the sky and even Native American visions. We are very scared for the first time, but we’re going to push through and complete this investigation. I hope we don’t disappear from the earth.

  17. Unfortunately, we’ve got some serious weather moving in and we are breaking camp tonight on Glastenbury Mountain. We were prepared to stay as long as it took produce significant evidence of unusual activity in the Bennington Triangle, but we can’t fight Mother Nature. We will be back, you can bet your ass on that. As it is, I think we need to get Jim off the mountain anyhow, he just ain’t been tight since he disappeared for about 10 hours on Friday night. He still won’t say anything about what happened, but he continues to walk funny. I sure hope he wasn’t buggered by the Bennington Monster, that’s my greatest concern at this point.

    Pat Gray
    BRVPRO

  18. Well, we are trying to regroup, reconnoiter, and generally figure things out after our trip to the Bennington Triangle. As of now, Jim has left BRVPRO for an undetermined period. We hope he returns, but understand he experienced things that might not allow for that. No matter what, we wish him all the best and we are going to continue our work.

    If anyone is interested in joining BRVPRO, please let me know.

    Pat Gray

  19. I have received inquiries from several people who are interested in joining BRVPRO. I hope to report back soon announcing that we have a newly invigorated team of experienced paranormal investigators. I’ll let you know once I complete all of the interviews. wish me luck.

  20. It looks like we’ve got the band back together and then some! Jim has returned to the fold and two new investigators have joined the team, so we’re now fully prepared to tackle some major investigations. In fact, in the wake of Hurricane Ian, we’ve be hired to head on down to Florida to confirm the presence of bigfoot there, where he’s also know as the Swamp Ape of Skunk Ape. The consensus is that the hurricane, with all the flooding and habitat disruption, will have significantly altered the normal routine of this bigfoot and make him much more vulnerable to detection. We are sure as hell gonna find out and we will keep you posted, you can bet your boots on that!
