(love your handle, by the way) As I remember, while the "psychics" picked up quite a bit while scanning the house with the family around, once the
family went to bed it was just drinking and cutting up. I don't recall any cases where the psychics noticed anything during the night or actually did
anything, but I suppose it's possible something happened after I went to sleep. I'm sure this is not what Mr. A reported to the families in the
morning, but I didn't stick around for that part. I was already out in the car ready for the ride back to the dorms. Hangover and all that.
I suppose it is also possible that something happened during the jobs where I wasn't there, but it wasn't like any of the group ever said to me "You
should have been here last weekend, man! We busted 7 ghosts!"
All the calls would have went to Mr. A, and if he got any complaints, he never mentioned it to me. If these were actual cases of ghosts or evil
spirits then I would have expected (counted on) complaints or repeat business. Since these cases were probably just normal events combined with
frazzled nerves, and having some "professionals" kick out the ghosts would calm the nerves... To be honest, I like to think that even if we did
nothing but put on a show, it helped the people involved, and that keeps me from feeling too
guilty about the whole thing. The person I am now
would never get involved in something like this, but I was a not-quite-legal-drinking-age young man being offered free beer, so there.
The camera has been bothering me the last few days. I've done a Google Image search, and I can't find anything like it. I'm sure it was referred to
as using film, but it was shaped more like a television studio camera (just smaller), and I think those don't have any type of film or tape in them as
they just send the image via wires to other equipment in the studio. I actually spent some time in the local PBS television station and saw real
studio cameras in action, or at least the old cheap ones that a small PBS station could afford. As I remember the cameras of the time, they needed
lots of light, had bad dynamic response, and were sensitive to vibration. Not the kind of technology that would be good for documenting a ghost hunt.
