The Banta Inn G(Host)

Flo and I were absent last week. We took a trip up to Northern California. If you’re familiar with NoCal, or even if you’ve just heard about it, there’s more to the area than San Francisco. Weed, for example, and Dunsmuir, Mt. Shasta and even Tracy, home of the fabled, haunted Banta inn. We tookContinue reading “The Banta Inn G(Host)”

Flo Dips Into Some Richard S. Shaver

Thanks to me, Flo is getting a new education in science fiction, also known as “The Truth Is Out There” (XFiles). She recently invited me to go downstairs with her to her basement to unpack some of the old boxes Alvie’s Dad had sent them years ago, when he evicted a bookstore. Flo had alreadyContinue reading “Flo Dips Into Some Richard S. Shaver”

The Hills’ UFO Abduction Book

“You know I had an epiphany last night when I couldn’t fall asleep,” Flo said, during our routine, daily phone conversation. “Maybe I never told you, but right before Alvie and I got married, I saw a UFO. And it was on a night just like last night, I was also having trouble sleeping, worryingContinue reading “The Hills’ UFO Abduction Book”

The Ghost Dance

Recently, I’ve noticed a lot more “Spirit Energy” swirling around me. Not landing on the stove-top or the book shelf, like Mim and Nicholas talking loudly, but silently spinning around like miniscule tornadoes. Now, that’s a strange thought, but some ghosts do not want to sit, while others do not want to stand or toContinue reading “The Ghost Dance”

Time Travel Agent

As you can imagine, taking a vacation is the farthest thing from my mind right now. I’ve ankle-deep in trying to understand the mysteries and auguries of how one comes and goes from The Other Side. Do you call it venturing, embarking on a Passage, or simply taking a Journey? I am beginning to thinkContinue reading “Time Travel Agent”


Throughout the upheaval of her ego, as Flo turned her insides out and became a Medium who talks with ghosts, she’s run into some unsavory characters. Some, in fact, Flo refers to, privately, as “dicks.” Not “dicks” like private eyes were once called in the golden age of comic books. But “dicks”, as the dictionaryContinue reading “Pre-Dick-Shuns”

The Pair A’ Normals

Ever since I dipped into Psychic Land, I’ve discovered most people, circling around in my orbit, have no idea or care about The Unexplainable. Sure, RoseEllen and Kate, from my Bridge Club, are fans of Netflix shows like “The Boo Strangers” and “Glass Caskets” – but to them, those series are make-believe. “Couldn’t. Wouldn’t Shouldn’t,”Continue reading “The Pair A’ Normals”

The Small Medium – Talking to Ghosts

A lot of really unexplainable things have happened to me recently. They are all related to two of my six senses – hearing and seeing. I hear sounds that come out of nowhere – including music playing on my phone, when I’m in another room, and my old music box, in the study, turning onContinue reading “The Small Medium – Talking to Ghosts”
