We couldn't get Jim to sit still to get a good picture but what a "fab" artist he is!
Today was "clean up" day although no matter how much I protested a couple of the gals claim "OCD" and wouldn't leave until their spot was clean...!!!
Now for the interesting part of the day and evening....Those who follow my blog know of the spirits who live at the store - Well, a paranormal investigator from Maryland was in the store yesterday and relayed to me she felt the presence of a woman... she told me the woman wanted to work for me and loved being in the store - she at one time lived there. She felt her name started with a "C". This woman left and came back to tell me she got the name "Carrie"...NOW....Kim (dark hair first picture in class) is also a Paranormal Investigator (neither of these gals were the ones that investigated our store)...Kim has a program on her phone that lets you know when an "energy" is close at hand....it will also blurt out words....(when Kim first showed me this program I had told her about Tony breaking his ankle...a few minutes after telling me about the program on her phone - two green dots of "energy" showed up...and quickly disappeared as we acknowledged them - a couple seconds later the phone said "ankle"....this is just one of many occurances that the phone "rightfully" blurted out. (I don't know how else to explain it - the phone just talks,) We had Kim turn her phone on last night and were getting somewhat words that you could somewhat maybe apply to what was going on in the room.....when I went downstairs and came back up they asked me if I knew the name "Johnny" ....It did NOT ring a bell....no one I knew. So we dismissed it. THIS MORNING....telling Kay (neighbor storekeeper) about it I got the shivers and goosebumps up and down my whole body. Hanging on my front door of the store is a crocheted tablecover that I use as a curtain. It was my husband's fathers when he was in the seminary (9 years before he met Tony's Mom)..one of the family "Nuns" had made it for him to cover his night table. His initials are on the tablecover in 4 places on little cotton laundry tags- (as the laundry was sent out to be done).....he passed away in 1976 - Tony's fathers name...
JOHN CAREY DOYLE. Do you have the shivers.....!!!!!!
