Mason House Inn

November 8 and 9, 2008

     Chris Moon held another Ghost Hunting University here on Nov. 8 and 9.  It was too cold to go up to the cemetery, so we held two "Telephone to the Dead" sessions on Friday night and one on Saturday night.  All three sessions were held in Room 5.  The following transcripts are from those sessions.  I do not transcribe the personal messages.

      Friday night, Nov. 8, Room 5, first session:

 

Chuck – "Harold, last time we talked to you, you said there were seven of you who went on vacation with us     to the rides, and you mentioned yourself, Amanda, and Curtis.  Who were the other four who went?".........         Harold – 'Anna, Markie, Amanda, Curtis, and ummm, the quack.'

 

"What does that mean, Harold?".............'Doctor'

 

"The doctor went?".............' Uh huh'

 

"And who was the other one?"..............' His wife.'

 

"Is this Peter, the doctor we talked to before?"...........' Yes, Peter, that’s right.'

 

"And you said Curtis got lost, who was the other one who got lost?"..............' Amanda'

 

"Amanda got lost?  I thought she went with Jinni?".............' I pulled her back.'

 

"So did Curtis stay here or go back?".............' Stayed here.'       Curtis - 'I had to.'

 

"Kristin and Dan went on a ride where they were hoisted into the air and then let go like a large swing, did any  of you go on that ride with them? ".................. Harold - 'I did.'

 

"Just you, Harold?"................' It was scary.'

 

"Amanda, thank you for going on rides with Jinni.  She had fun going with you."..........Amanda - 'It was fun.'

 

"A couple weeks ago we had four ladies staying in Room 5 and one of them saw a face come through the wall, was that you, Harold?"................' Yes.  It was great.  Good prank.     Bart’s here.'

 

"Hi, Bart.  Do you want to say something?"............... Bart -' Hey'

 

Guest –" What bank did you rob?".................' None of your business.'

 

       "I’m a banker. I want to know.  What did you do with the money?"................' Buried it.'

 

       "Where at?"..................' Not telling.'

 

      "Is it still buried or did someone find it?"...............'Not found.'

 

     "Is it buried in this town?".......................' It’s gone.'

 

     "Somebody found it already?"...................' Water got it.'

 

     "Did a flood wash it away or did it fall in the river when you fell in the river?"........... ' Buried it.  Water took it.'

 

Cindi – "The last time I was here, somebody followed me home.  Who was that?"......... 'I might have followed you'.

 

      "Who are you?"................' Curtis.'

 

     "It did feel like a man.  I told him to go back to the Inn."................' I did.'

 

Chuck -" Amanda, are you there?"................. Amanda – 'Yes'

 

"What happened to the ring on the shelf?"......................' I took it '

 

"It’s been there for two years, why did you decide to take it now?".................' Wanted it. '

 

"What took you so long?".....................' Wanted to make you think you lost it. '

 

"It was there for two years."......................' It was just sitting there. '

 

"Do you want more?  Shall I put another one there?"........................' Cool '

 

"How come you guys use expressions from our time?"........................... Harold – 'That rocks!    We hear you.'

 

Chuck – "Who came into our room and said Joy’s name in her ear?"..............' Me '

 

"Who’s me?"....................' Sam'

 

"Who said “Come in”?"..................Sam - ' Kaitlyn'

 

"Would that be Kaitlyn or Katie?"....................' Kaitlyn .   Katie’s three.'

 

"How old is Kaitlyn?"......................' Twelve '

 

"And who said “Be Quiet”?"..................'That was Curtis.'
 

"Who came in the room and played in Jinni’s room?"........................' Twenty of us.  You heard us, so we left. '

 

Guest – "How many spirits are in the room with us right now?"..........................' Thirty'

 

Chuck – "Who moved the salt and pepper shakers on the table the other day?"...............Harold – 'Josephine'

 

"Who picked it up?".......................' I did.  She pushed it over.   Pushed it off the table.  I tried to put it back.'

 

"Is Markie here?"..................Markie – 'Hey.    Have you felt me here lately?'

 

"Not really.  I get cold spells, is that what you mean?  You haven’t knocked twice."..............Markie –' Yes I have.'

 

"I must have missed it, sorry.".....................' Listen harder.'

 

"Hey, Markie, how are you and Amanda getting along? "..........................Markie - 'Perfect'    Amanda giggles.

 

Guest –" Harold, are you going to tap on anybody’s wall tonight?"......................Harold -  'I’ll be tapping.  Listen for it.'

 

       (At this point, tapping sounds started in my recorder.  These sounds were not heard by anybody in the room, but as I am listening to the recording, I can hear a lot of knocking going on.  They are in groups of three, four, and five knocks.  It sounds like knuckles on wood.  Sometimes far away and sometimes closer.  It goes on through the whole rest of the session.)

 

Joy – "The light bulb in the parlor has been going on and off lately.  Is that you or just the light bulb?

               Little girl’s voice giggling – 'You gotta catch me. '

 

"Who was that?"............................ Harold - 'Katie.   Amanda’s chasing her.'

 

"So what about the light bulb?" ................... Harold – 'I touched it.  It went off.'

 

"That was a pretty good trick.".............................' Yeah, it was.  It scared them.'

 

"You should do some more tricks like that. "............................'I’ll try. '

 

Guest – "Is someone making me cold right now?".............Harold – 'That’s me.  I’m going to smack the wall.   Listen for it. '

 

Chuck – "What did you think of the roof construction that we had here?"............. Harold - 'A mess.'   Mary – 'Too loud. '

 

"Was it too noisy? "................ Mary – 'It was. ' 

 

"It’s all better now.  We won’t get any more leaks upstairs."..............' I hope they did it right this time. '

 

Guest – "Is someone taking my energy right now?".......................  Man’s voice -  'Someone, yes.     Me. '

 

Chris - "Say your name so she knows.".....................' Curtis.   I’m doing it.'

 

(There were some personal messages, which I don’t transcribe, and then we closed the session.)

 

Chris – "Okay, we have to close this session.  We’ll be back in a few minutes with the next group. ...........'Okay.  We’ll wait for you. '  

 

          Second session,  Nov. 8, Room 5

 

Chris – "Are you ready?"................... Harold – 'There’s more this time.  Bigger group.'

 

Guest – "What spirits want my attention tonight?"...............' Five of us.'

 

"What are your names?"      (A list of names was given, Chris did not say them.)

 

Chris - "There you go.  You have to talk to someone specific or you just get them all at once."

 

Chuck – "Last weekend there were some people in Room 6 doing EVP sessions and they got a man’s voice saying “Help me”, who was that?".................... Man’s voice -  'That was me.'

 

Chris - "Say your name, please."...................' I’m sorry.'

 

"That’s okay, can you give us your name please?".................'  You’re going to shoot me.'

 

"Who’s going to shoot you?".....................' He is.'

 

Chuck - "Do you inhabit the Inn all the time?"...................' Uh huh'

 

"Can you give us your first name?".....................' Daniel'

 

"Daniel, do you need someone to take you to the light?"......................' Yes, please.'

 

"Harold, can you take him to the light?"..................... Harold – 'Markie can. '

 

"Markie, can you take him to the light now?" ....................Markie – 'He can’t forgive himself. '

 

"Daniel, what did you do?" .................' I shot her.  Shot her in the head.  Shot her on the hill.  I’m sorry. '

 

"Do you want to go to the light?".............' Yes.   I’m afraid. '

 

"Markie, can you assist him?"............. Markie – 'Work with me, Daniel.  Yes, he’ll go. '

 

"Can you go tonight?"................... Harold – 'They’re gone.  He'll be okay now.'

 

Guest – "Harold, did you turn off my light last night?"..................' Yeah,  I did.'

 

      "Why did you do it?".....................' It was funny.  Markie's back.'

 

Chuck - "Markie, is your task complete?  Did Daniel go to the light?"............' Yes.  He needed help. '

 

"He was asking for help.  Several people got a “Help me” in their EVPs."............' Yes, it was Daniel. '

 

"I have another question.  In their EVPs someone said “Lay on the floor”, who was that?"....... Girl’s voice – 'That was me.   Anna. '

 

"Anna, why did you want her to lay on the floor?"...................' I wanted her to play with me. '

 

Guest - "Harold, did you tap on the window last night in Room 6?"........... Harold -' It was, there was two of us. '

 

       "Who was the other one?".................' Amanda, it was funny. '

 

Chuck – "Harold, can you read the thoughts of people on this side?"................'Sometimes, depends '

 

"Does it have to be a strong signal or what? "...................' Not easy.   I listen to you talk. '

 

Guest – "Who opened the front door tonight?"...................' Someone handsome.  It was me, Harold. '

Guest – "Hi, Harold.   Do you remember me from before?"...............' Hi.  Yeah, I remember you. '

Chuck – "Does any one know anything about what happened out at the picnic table a few days ago?"................. Harold – 'That was me. '

 

"What did you do?"........................      No answer.

 

"You don’t have to admit to everything, Harold, just the things you do."...................Oh '

 

"We want you to be honest with us, Harold.  Did you have anything to do with the cake and candles? "...................'At the Cottage.'

 

"Yes, it was in the caboose cottage.  Can you tell us what you did ?"...............' Made a mess. '

 

"I don’t know anything about a mess.  It had to do with the candle lighting.".........' Oh.  Don’t know anything about that.   Wasn’t me. '

"Dale, do you have a last name we could use to find out more about the story?".............' Turner. '

 

"Your name was Turner?"......................' No, he shot me.  Turner. '
