I've always loved history. I have a degree in history. You know what you can do with a degree in history? Be a firefighter, that's what I did. When I retired after 27 years I wanted to get back to history but was discouraged to find out most people don't share my enthusiasm. I found different ways to make history fun through living history and presenting the past from a personal point of view instead of just a bunch of names, numbers, dates and places. I also discovered that while my "History of Virginia Beach" programs had a respectable appreciation, my "Haunted History of Virginia Beach" drew a much larger audience (mostly the same stories but with ghosts).

The Moody Crewe pirates completed a three day mission at Norfolk's Harborfest. This was our 8th year. Always a great event!!
In January a New York student travel agency booked a ghost walk/tour for 7:30 on May 21st. We communicated back and forth about the total number of students and chaperones, etc. On May 1st I received my deposit check and on the 19th I spoke with the agent to confirm everything. On the 21st I arrived at the designated site at 7:15. I remained there until 9:00. No one showed up. I texted the agent with that information. This morning I received a reply stating that she was sorry. She didn't know why they didn't show up. The group hadn't been heard from since they left New York. Depending on how this turns out I may have a great new story....
