Wooden transporting owl!
Rose-Mary writes, "Our haunted Welsh farmhouse never ceases to surprise
us! We seem to have experienced a wide range of phenomena, from
apparitions, things that go bump, both day and night, writing and
carvings of religious words on our walls, voices, images on photos that
are not their in reality to the transportation of heavy objects!
In August 2002 my husband, David, bought me a large wooden owl. I had
coveted it for ages in our local pine furniture shop. The price tag was
nearly £400 and there didnít seem much chance of me acquiring it.
However, I was unfortunate enough to suffer from appendicitis, the
offending organ was removed on the point of bursting. David decided that
as I had been such a brave girl, I deserved to have my beloved owl! Two
strong men placed the 182lb owl on our 16-inch high hearth in the
lounge. For a few months it seemed quite happy and dominated the room.
One day, in February 2003, David walked into the lounge and had a shock,
there was the owl standing in the middle of the lounge having somehow
moved off itís plinth and travelled about 10 feet, or so, across the
room. It stood in this position for a couple of days until our
son-in-law came over to help David move it. As it was so heavy, it was
decided that we put it in the study next door, as lifting it back onto the
hearth may have resulted in the two men sustaining hernias! The owl
seemed to settle well into itís new home, so I had a big surprise when
in August 2003 I arrived home to discover the owl in the kitchen,
occupying the space where a pair of kitchen steps and a pot plant had
been. Everything had moved up one, the steps on top of the owl and the
plant on top of the steps! We removed the steps and plant and left the
owl where it was. A few months later the owl decided to once more return
to the hearth; this time in a reclining position! At the time of writing,
the owl sits in the corner of the French windows in the lounge and seems
We have no idea how the owl goes walkabout, this is just another of the
mysteries that make our home a fascinating place in which to live!"

We are featuring two pages of Rose-Mary's photos this
month because of this most amazing phenomena that she and her husband David are
experiencing. I also have a shack of photos that we will be showcasing in the
form of an article on her home next month. Just in case you didn't read
Rose-Mary's comments at the top of this page, this wooden owl weighs 182 lbs and
would be very heavy for a ghost to transport. However, I know it can be done
because I have personally seen it happen. Once when I was on an investigation of
a haunted Hotel in old Folsom, CA, (Folsom prison blues). I witnessed
a huge cushion chair disappear. We walked away for a couple of minutes and came
back to find the chair gone. First of all it was very heavy, secondly, it was
upstairs, and thirdly, it would not have fit through the doors of any of the
rooms. We waited there in awe wondering what happened to the chair and if it
might reappear somewhere soon. Well, we walked around the corner for a few
minutes and on our return, it reappeared. We asked the staff downstairs if the
chair had been seen being taken down to the main lobby and they just laughed as
they said no. As I have learned, there are ways for material items to be
transported by unseen beings and can even vanish completely during the
transporting process. I am currently doing a research survey on this type of
phenomena and the reports coming in are astonishing!
