Living Dead Girl
By Rob Zombie
Okay, maybe I am sorta getting ahead start on Halloween, but I like this Holiday. It falls during my favorite season. I am fascinated by the paranormal kinda stuff, so naturally, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I have all of my Halloween decorations out already. No scary ones tho-much to my 12 yo’s disappointment, all of our Halloween decorations are cute because of Wee One. I’ll take my 12 yo to atleast 3 ‘famed’ Charity put-on Haunted Houses next month. I’ll even go thru them with him. I like a good scare-also, they are charitable events, so it is money well spent.
Do I believe in the paranormal? Yes, I am not quite sure what exactly IT is, but I believe it exists. My family (especially my 12 yo and I) love to watch Ghosthunters on Scifi(TAPS) on Wednesdays nights, even hubby watches it with us, and he doesnt like anything scary.
Here are a few haunted places (or maybe haunted) in Oklahoma I have either visited first-hand or want to:
Ponca City – Poncan Theatre. This theatre is one of the oldest buildings in Ponca City. People have reported hearing footsteps when nobody else is present, seeing people who disappear quickly afterwards, and classic ghost stuff like that. In the basement, some people have reported hearing the beating of an Indian drum nearby. Also, there is a stain in the ceiling that closely resembles blood. People have made every effort to remove it: washing it, painting over it, etc. But it always comes back after a few days. Personally, I have never been inside the Theatre, so I cannot form an opinion….sigh.
Pawhuska – Bird Creek School. There is a school off in the woods behind lake bluestem it is an old one room school house that was used for Native American children in the early 1900’s but the chalk board was still in-tact(for awhile) and it is said that if you enter and write you name on the board and come back at a later time that your name will be scratched off the board. I am not sure about the chalk board instance, but I did know an Old Osage Indian(he’s passed away) who attended school back when it was open, he said it was haunted then. I have been inside, just had an uncomfortable, very cold feeling(it was about 92 degrees out that day).
Sand Springs – Postok Cemetery. Balls of light move about in the cemetery and in the woods behind. Warm and very cold spots all over. This is an old cemetary, I have not had the opportunity to visit but when I do, I am taking my camera because others have told me orbs are in every picture you take here.
Pawhuska – Green Eyes. The story behind green eyes is unclear, nobody really knows what happened but it is rumored that a man went crazy and drove his car that had his 2 children and his wife over the bridge and they drowned. Also, Ive heard an Osage Woman who was a witch was killed in this area of the creek for being evil. If you go over green eyes bride at midnight and turn off your lights you will see two green eyes and when you turn on your lights to see what it is there is nothing there. My friend L. and I might have witnessed something strange(it wasnt green eyes tho)-but we are not sure because we had just left a party (we were just recently 21 and whooping it up) so it might have been Jose Quervo playing a trick on us! Regardless, this is right near the Bird Creek School and the whole area in itself gives off a creepy feeling-daylight OR dark!
Skiatook – Witch’s Grave. This location is an old late 1800’s and early 1900’s grave yard called Hillside cemetery marked by an historical site marker. It is known that a witch in the early 1900’s is buried there. Many disturbing things have happened on and near this location. Talk of demonic possessions and alternately the destruction of lives to those who disturb the witch’s grave. The Death of a young teen-age boy in the mid 70’s that wrecked his car at a very near by bridge is known to walk the roads around the cemetery. From Skiatook take Hwy 11 north to Hillside Rd. Turn east stay on the road it will be on the east side of the road just past the curves. I have driven past this place once, I was not comfortable stopping, a bad feeling-like a sense of dread. I was not stopping for anything.
I took the pictures below back in June. It is an old cemetary. I drive to it occassionally to check the grave of my Old Osage Friend. I think I am the only one left around who cares for it. I feel it is my responsibility to pull the weeds growing up around the headstone, brush off the grass trimmings, and make sure all is right at my Friend’s grave.
This is a little bit off my haunted topic, but it was fun. Do you believe in past lives? Me? I’m not-so-sure…..but I went here anyhow: Free Past Life Analysis – Who Were You?
This is what it said:
I do not know how you feel about it, but you were female in your last earthly incarnation.
You were born somewhere around territory of modern Tailand approximately on 1575.
Your profession was sailor, shoemaker.
Your brief psychological profile in that past life: Inquisitive, inventive, liked to get to the very bottom of things and to rummage in books. Talent for drama, natural born actor.
Lesson, that your last past life brought to present: Your lesson — to learn discretion and reasonability and then teach others to do that. Your life will be happier, when you help those who lack reasoning.
Now you remember?
Nope, I dont remember a damn thing…..
More Halloween Posts coming…….(I think!)
