Ed Gein's Grave/Homestead

As some of you know, Joe and I love to travel and see the sites.... we also love history. While we visited a site out in Wisconsin, we decided to visit Ed Gein's hometown and grave, since we were in the area... Call us weird, but its really interesting stuff. Its funny, Joes into serial killers, I'm into the paranormal, so it works out both ways!

For those of you who don't know Ed Gein, let me give you a quick rundown.....

From Wikipedia: Edward Theodore "Ed" Gein (pronounced /ˈɡiːn/; August 27, 1906 – July 26, 1984) was an American murderer and grave robber. His crimes, which he committed around his hometown of Plainfield, Wisconsin, garnered widespread notoriety after authorities discovered Gein had exhumed corpses from local graveyards and fashioned trophies and keepsakes from their bones and skin.

Some very famous films were based off this man... Silence of the Lambs, Psycho, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre to name a few...

I'm going to leave you with some photo's we took while we were there...

His gravestone is missing cause people stole it long ago and we stumbled across this....

He's buried next to his mother whom he had many issues with.

One of the ladies he murdered is buried a few yards from him.

The empty spot is where he's buried.

Joe found it right away... strange..

Here's where the house and barn once stood...

The property.. who know's if bones still exist on the property...

Texas Frightmare Weekend

Ahhh, its great to be back in Texas! Wow, what a wonderful convention! Texas Frightmare Weekend was amazing! Joe and I had a blast! This was my first convention in Texas and Joes second one... By far, from what I heard, this particular one was the best! So many amazing guests, it was crazy! Not only did I get to attend this, I got to meet some of my fav's too!! Thank you to all my fans and friends that came out! Ahhh, it was good!! Now I'm gonna leave you with some highlights.... Until next year, Texas!!! :D

The Stanley Hotel

While Joe and I were up in Denver for the convention, we stayed one night at the infamous Stanley Hotel!! I've been wanting to visit this hotel since I knew Stephen King stayed there and the film, The Shining, was based off that hotel... such history!! Let me tell you, this place is sooooo magical! It has such beauty and charm to it, can't even begin to explain!

We did take the ghost tour which included the basement where the Ghost Hunters interacted with a spirit.. Jason from Ghost Hunters stayed in room, 401, and had the closet door open and close on its own.. which they caught on tape! We stayed in room 401, the most haunted room in the hotel... Unfortunately we didn't have anything happen to us... maybe next time... ;)

All in all, The Stanley, is one place you HAVE TO VISIT! Here are some pictures to highlight our time at the infamous hotel!! Enjoy!!
