31 Days of Spook – Story Submission

I hope everyone had a great and wonderful weekend – not too many boos and ghosts.  Today, we have another guest story submission.  This one is from my friend Kelly at Boomdeeadda.  Do you know her?  If you don’t, you are so missing out on entertainment and a wonderful spirit – snorts how appropriate today huh?  Please make it a point to visit my friend Kelly at Boomdeeadda – tell her that Bacon sent you.

  

“Dear Bacon, I thought I’d tell you about a holiday I took with my girlfriend to visit her Grandma.  We were both 13 and staying for a week.  We were sleeping in the basement of her old house. Every night, my friend and I would get out a Ouija Board and ask it all kinds of questions. The first few nights were fun and silly with lots of giggles.

One night, it was especially animated. It was just flying around the board.  At first we thought it was all nonsense, then we started to write down the letters.  Some of the words we didn’t even know. So we went upstairs to ask Grandma for a dictionary (no home computers in 1974, ha).  To our surprise, the board had spelled words neither of us knew but they were in the dictionary. After accusing each other, we were so freaked out, we put the Ouija Board out in the garage and never touched it the rest of the holiday. I don’t know about my girlfriend, but I’ve never used one since. Too freaky.

I don’t know who we had visit, but they sure scared the heck out of us….hey I just noticed, the first three letters of my blog name spell BOO!  eeeeek :D”

31 Days of Spook – Ellis Hotel

Hello my fellow horror adventurers.  Buckle up my friends… it’s going to be a bumpy ride today.

Let’s focus today on the Ellis Hotel that is located in downtown Atlanta, right in mom/dad’s backyard if you will.

The Ellis Hotel used to be called the Winecoff Hotel.  On December 7, 1946 it had over 260 guests checked in for overnight.  Around 3:00AM (the witching hour some say), an elevator operator smelled smoke near the fifth floor and notified other employees.  Unfortunately by that time, the third, fourth and fifth floors were already on fire. The hotel was suppose to be fireproof and it turned out that night that it wasn’t.  Due to being ‘fireproof, there was no fire escapes, no fire doors, no sprinklers or alarm system.  Over 119 guests perished that night.

The hotel was reopened in 1951 as the Peachtree Hotel on Peachtree.  It passed through multiple ownerships and in 2007 it was named the Ellis Hotel.  There are rumors of items being moved, voices, children running and woman screaming down the hallways.  One time, two weeks in a row, the current alarm system went off at 2:48AM – the same time each week.

Mom/dad felt festive one day several months ago.  It was during their monthly date night and they spent the night at the Hotel Ellis.  It doesn’t take much to spook dad but mom on the other hand is a hard one to crack.  They stayed on the third floor in a very nice room.  Dad woke mommy up around 2:30AM complaining about the activity in the hallway.  When mom checked it out, there was nothing.  She didn’t hear it or see anything but dad said it woke him up.  Around 3:30AM, mommy woke up smelling smoke.  She’s very sensitive to the smell and she said it was overwhelming.  Again, she woke daddy up and he didn’t smell anything.  And for some reason, the elevator door went up and down a lot that night.  They could hear the doors opening and closing but no foot steps.  Needless to say, they didn’t get much sleep that night.

Houdini Update

IMG_0947

Oh my friends – this *you* have to see.  Little Man Houdini in his walking stroller.  It’s okay – you can roll your eyes here.  Snorts.  Mom has been telling daddy that she wanted to set Houdini a stroller.  But all that she has seen has been outrageous in prices.  But don’t worry because we all know my mommy is the shopping Queen.  She found this stroller for $20.00!  That’s right $20.00!  WIN-WIN-WIN!  If you look closer at the stroller it zips around so the little guy can’t hop out and nothing can get to him.  It also has cup holders and a hidey hole on top for keys, mom’s phone, etc.  Awesome deal huh?

Mom and Nana took Houdini for a walk the other night.  He <3 it!  He sits in his stroller and looks around while they are walking.  Then one night, Houdini was driving mommy nuts – which I was kind of enjoying watching.  He kept trying to nip at her, jumping on her and bugging her.  Then she said, “Okay, that’s it.  Let’s go for a walk”.  It was like that was what he wanted. He immediately went to his stroller and waited for her.

Then off they went for their little walk.  It seems to wear him out.  Not that he walks but he does get the fresh air and gets to go out with mom.  I think it’s the fresh air that helps him settle down for the night.  Mom has been trying to walk him before bedtime every night.  But you gotta admit it – he does look kind of cute in that stroller doesn’t he?

Oh piggy heavens above! Oh my friends.  I hate to be the one to tell you this but there is a deadly virus going around these parts.  You need to protect yourself STAT!  It’s awful and can hit you at any time.

In fact, the virus is called Weekly Overload Recreational Killer (WORK).  If you come in contact with the WORK virus, you should immediately go to the nearest Biological Anxiety Relief (BAR) center to take antidotes known as Working Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE), Radioactive UnWORK Medicine (RUM), Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER) or Vaccine Official Depression Killing Agent (VODKA).

Don’t be a victim my friends – take action NOW!
