The Dead

October 9 & 10, 2017

So today, when I went to teach my fabulous class at 24 Hour Fitness Walnut Creek, I get to the stereo equipment, open the drawer to get the mic and I see a penny. I can't see for squat (old eyes), so I put it in my pocket for later.

1964 Penny

It's a 1964, the year my brother Baby was born. Later, I was at a class in Livermore with Mia and Zelia and we're standing outside gabbing for about an hour. I look down and see something.

Silver Feather

It's a silver feather. Feathers are one of the ways my mom has of saying, "Hi!" Then I'm at Trader Joe's, about to get into my car, and I see what looks like angel's wings.

Angel's Wings

Hello my Angel Baby, Nene!

I'm really excited about all this activity because I'm going to see Theresa Caputo tomorrow! You know, the Long Island Medium? She talks to dead people. She talked to me about my brother, Baby, the last time I saw her! (click here for post).

I also didn't want to post the above before we saw Theresa so people couldn't accuse her of googling me for info!

Me, Kathy and Boobie went.

I thought it would be too crazy if she ended up talking to my dead people again. She never quite made it to us. She was about 10 feet away at one point but she was dealing with a bunch of dead people who had hanged themselves. It was really strange. She said, "Who here has someone who hanged themselves?" About 20 people in one section raised their hands! It was surreal! She ended up focusing on a family who's son had accidentally hung himself after threatening to, when his girlfriend broke up with him. The poor guy didn't mean to actually go through with it and accidentally went too far. So very sad.

Even though she didn't talk to us directly, there were many references from the other folks that made us KNOW that our dead people were there with us. There was a reference to a motorcycle wreck (Baby), there was a reference to someone who had an infection through their body and died on Friday (Nene), there was a reference to the mom who could not communicate verbally at the end (Mom) and there were references about not having seen or having said goodbye (Dad).

It was fascinating as always. I can't wait until the next season begins! Oh and Kathy and I were hungry at 11:30 pm so this happened.

This is my nieces blog. She's cute: needs a facelift and makeover. I'll be working on that, too.

They need you.
