Interview with Terry McKenzie - Ghosts don't play dead - Wendy's Coffeehouse 1/28

Terry McKenzie says he first began to wonder when he heard heavy footsteps in the room above him while he was alone in the house. A bigger impression involved witnesses who were gathered in the basement. Very clearly, the sound of a man laughing could be heard coming from the stairway. Two of the witnesses were spooked enough to gather their things and vacate the house ASAP. 

The incident that stands out the most involves a photograph.

(L) Orb or not? Andy took this near Terry's home
on the Halloween Ghost Walk. 2016 I think.
Terry needed to document some of the furnishings for insurance purposes and took a photo of a dresser with a mirror.

The room was empty at the time
but when the picture was developed, clearly
reflected in the mirror, were the images of two people, a man and a woman dressed in period clothing.

That image is pretty incredible, I've seen it too. Holy grail for a ghost hunter. Difficult to explain or to deny.

Thirteen years later, Terry says some friends might joke and deny that the house is haunted but he and his wife don't have the luxury of disbelief. Experience makes all the difference. And the Ghosts seem to be friendly or at least not too scary.

According to Terry the time of day is key. He says the house takes on a different energy at night. Curious? The Halloween Ghost Walk is an outside tour of several houses. To see the inside, sign up for the 2018 Weston Christmas Homes Tour.

Thank you for listening and for sharing!
Stay curious!
