Halloween Bash!!!!!! LAST DAY!!!!!!!!!!

So this is our last day to party :(  It's too bad because it's been such a wonderful time!  I've loved having each and every one of you here celebrating All Hallows Eve!

Our final destination is................


Waverly Hills Sanatorium, located in Louisville, Kentucky, opened in 1910 as a two-story hospital to accommodate 40 to 50 tuberculosis patients. It has since come to be considered one of the most haunted buildings in the Eastern United States. In the early 20th century, Jefferson County was severely stricken with an outbreak of tuberculosis. The original Waverly Hills building was soon home to over 140 patients. A larger hospital was needed for the overwhelming number of patients coming in, so construction of a five-story building that could hold more than 400 patients began in March 1924.

The most common experience of visitors seems to be "moving shadows" or "shadow people". These are shadows that appear to have some substance - able to "walk" across doorways and, demonstrated in the Sci-Fi Channel special Spooked, able to block some light when a laser is pointed at them. There are many reports of these shadows both inside and outside the building.
Glowing Orbs (nicknamed "Soul Orbs" by some) have also been photographed there. These small balls of light appear almost like lightbulbs or specks of dust when captured on film, but there has been no electric power to the building in years. They are often reported to fly around corridors and spawn other orbs.
Some photos show indistinct "brown imps" outside the grounds too, but these humanoid shapes are a less common sighting. The existing photographic evidence of the imps is dubious to say the least.
There have been many Electronic_voice_phenomenon recordings made in the building and grounds. Varying from the more common "Get out" or "Go away" to more specific statments like "What kind of hospital is this?" and "The winch" (referring to the winch that powered the Death Tunnel's body card, and recorded in that area). The makers of the movie Death Tunnel (and the documentary Spooked) recorded many such voices and sounds while filming.






That's right my friends!  We are going to party it up in one of the Most Haunted places in the world!  Everything is set up for us.
As you explore you will find Tarot Card Readings, Seances, Equipment for ghost hunting, dance parties, lounges, Massage and stone therapy and so much more!
This place has all your heart's desire but you have to find the room....
If that's not too your taste and too tame, then head down to the Tunnels... We have many Masters or Subs waiting for you with all the equipment you've ever dreamed of.

The Party Ends at Midnight Tonight EST!  So Party Hard While There's Still Time!!!

Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone!!!!!!!!!!

April London said...

Rock om Leanne!! What an awesome post!!

Christle Gray said...

I've actually been ghosthunting at Waverly Hills. Very creepy and very big, but no ghostly stuff. Really wanted to have a "paranormal experience" too.

Leanne109 said...

Thanks!!! I am super excited about our last day to party!

Leanne109 said...

Christie I think the Creepy factor is the most Fab part :D If you ever want a true experience I;ll set you up to visit my house I lived in 10 years ago :S

ShanonGrey said...

Leanne, a great post! Never heard of that one. I am sitting in my office with everyone asleep and no curtains on the windows. Thanks!

ShanonGrey said...

When does it end? 12pm today or 12am the 31st?

Elaine Cantrell said...

I've never seen a ghost, but I think one said hello to me. I was not amused.

Shadow said...

Oh, ive heard of this place. Ive seen Death Tunnel too. The movie is a bit cheap but full of spooks and scariness!
What happened in your old house Leanne?

Leanne109 said...

12 am the 31st! Then at 12:17 am on the 31st a story I wrote for Halloween will be posted for anyone to read.

Leanne109 said...

Shadow it was very haunted but the ghost liked to play games. It only played with me and made sure only I heard it. It was the scarciest I'd ever been. It would be most active when I was alone with my daughter who was a baby.
It would make noises throughout the house, move things that would get me in trouble with my ex and make me stay awake almost all night for years.

Leanne109 said...

I'm off to bed! See you all in the morning to party once more! Will give Fortune Readings tomorrow :D

shadow_kohler said...

creepy! the ghost that we have here does things like that. how long did you live there?

ShanonGrey said...

It's been great. See you tomorrow. Off to bed for me, too. Night ghoulies and ghosties!

Neko said...

Well this will be creepy experience I think. *coughs* >.> Speaking of haunted houses I use to live in one, up in Ohio..

Leanne109 said...

Good Morning all!!!!!!!

Shadow I lived there for 5 very long years and only managed to have about 6 months at one time where the ghost wasn't trying to drive me insane. We got a big dog and the ghost stayed away during that time, unfortunately the dog turned pretty vicious and had to be put down or our daughter's safety. Things started up again within a week. I am so happy to be living in a place now with no spirits or anything :D

Leanne109 said...

I was thinking for breakfast we should all go to the local eatery for breakfast. :D

ShanonGrey said...

Haaallllowwww! Did I miss breakfast? I overslept. Bats kept me awake last night.

Leanne109 said...

Nope everyone is still waking up :)

Leanne109 said...

FIRST QUESTION OF THE DAY COMES FROM LISA KESSLER:

Question - What was the name of Lisa's first published work?

THE PRIZE IS:

A free eBook copy of Across the Veil and signed Night Walker romance trading cards

YOU CAN FIND THE ANSWER ON THIS WEBSITE:

http://LisaKessler.wordpress.com/

Elaine Cantrell said...

Maybe the ghost was making the dog mean.

Leanne109 said...

That could very well be, either way though he became a danger to my ex and daughter. He adored me and let me doing anything but everyone else was the enemy to him. It's too bad though because he made me feel so safe :)

ShanonGrey said...

Animals can definitely sense things we cannot. I would catch something just out of my peripheral vision and the dog would be on full alert, ears forward, head tilted, tail still. I would turn and listen and watching. Nothing. After a bit, she would resume her nap position, but you could tell she was watching....

Anonymous said...

Good Morning everyone ! I am ready for some breakfast :)

Ohhh how I wanna guess, someone should hurry and win the fab gift from Lisa !!

Are we going exploring today ? If so I may not want to eat to much ;)

~Kym

Leanne109 said...

I'm thinking we should check out room 226. I hear crazy things happen in there :D

Hey Kat! That sound Delicious! I've never had Sweet Tea and would love to try some!

Leanne109 said...

LOL Shanon, I guess you take pictures like I do. I always end up opening the battery trap and losing them just when I get the perfect shot.

JL!Are you sure that works on batteries?

Heya Leonore! It's been a pleasure and I plan to do this again sometime in the future!

Lots of spirits still wandering the grounds of Waverly and probably some modern creatures, too, drawn by the aura of the huge empty building.

Leanne109 said...

ONCE UPON A TIME......

astreabaldwin said...

there was a widdle ghost named Sue....

Leanne109 said...

She lived in an abandoned house at the end of the street near the Alstonville Manor.

Leanne109 said...

Who wants a great book to read???????????

astreabaldwin said...

None of the other ghosts in the neighborhood would play with her, so she decided to make a new ghost. One just for her.

(but we're writing a book here, Leanne!)

ShanonGrey said...

I do!!!

Michelle Bledsoe said...

Sorry I haven't been on. I had to change computers because of technical difficulties.LOL

koonie2888 at yahoo dot com

Leanne109 said...

So she went out looking for the perfect friend. From house to house she hid in the shadows watching people and wondering to herself "Is this my friend?"

Leanne109 said...

CONGRATS MICHELLE YOU HAVE WON A BOOK FROM MARILYN BARON!!! PDF eBook copy of “The Stand-In Bridegroom.”

Michelle Bledsoe said...

astreabaldwin said...

The first one had a wet bottom and cried for his mommy. The second one must have been frightened by Sue's dolly; it was missing an eye, after all. So, she kept looking. Until she found.....

Leanne109 said...

A little girl with hair as black as a Raven's wing and skin like porcelain. Her name was Margrit and she had a slight lisp, but she was perfect.

Vanetta Q said...

ME of course!

Toni said...

Wow that took some time to get thru. I'm bummed I missed such great fun. Thanks Leanne again for the great time. YAY - I won HAWTHORNE!!

*pouncing in seat**

tsteinerid(gmail)

astreabaldwin said...

Sue tiptoed up behind her, afraid she just might run away like all the others. Margit simply kept playing in the sand.

"I know you're there, you know. You don't have to be so quiet." She turned and smiled. "Nice dolly. What's her name?"

astreabaldwin said...

*getting Toni, Van and Kym popcorn* LOL!

Anonymous said...

ohh I love popcorn THANK YOU !! *listening *

Leanne109 said...

"Tilly.... You can see me?" Sue tips her head looking at the little girl in surprise.

"Sure I can, can't everyone?" asked Margit.

"Well no, would you be my friend and come live with me?" asks Sue.

astreabaldwin said...

"Sure!" she beamed up to her as she put down her shovel. She bounced to her feet and gave her toe a twist in the sand. "Um, can I hold Tilly?"

"Yes, but you have to leave that here."

"My shovel?" Margrit seemed a little confused.

"No, silly." she giggled. "Your body."

astreabaldwin said...

(I have been summoned afk, so I will leave the end of this off the cuff tale to the extraordinarily talented Leanne! *muah* Great party! :-)

ShanonGrey said...

I feel a tear falling...

Leanne109 said...

"ummmm, I don't know how..." Margit states.

"That's OK, I do", Sue answers with an evil grin.

With her long skinny arm in the air she swings it down to embed a knife in the other little girl's neck. Blood squirts out and Margit falls to the ground. Eyes sightlessly stare towards the sky.

Leanne109 said...

Margit's spirit emerges from the body and she is smiling at Sue. Sue takes her hand and gives her Tilly to hold.

Hand in hand they skip all the way to their home where they live Happily Ever After.......

THE END
