Mr. G's Ice Cream Parlour
was live on location in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania from which to broadcast, but as
indicated in the
live chat room,
Skype was being characteristically uncooperative.
They had each been connected and been Skype-booted before Henry had even tried calling me.
At just over ten past, Henry was able to connect all of us, then try to start the show.
and store owner

as well as
who never really did get on the air.
Mike gave some of the history about the
house, aka the
John Winebrenner house,

seemed to snag the mic to speak about some experiences he and
had had, including but not limited to with an elusive little girl ghost.
They all joked about various colliding events going on the same weekend, such as the Boy Scouts and a dog convention of sorts, and it would seem either WWII veterans... or WWII cosplayers.
Pat and Doug spoke about the great EVPs they've caught at Mr. G's.
They went up into the attic, where the recorder was running, and they got an EVP of someone pointing out "at least they're fun," which Henry played.
Henry played several of their EVPs.
Pat explained about the activity focused in the building's attic, as well as history of the fighting of the famous battle/s.
We went really late to break, so we only took the one, after which CC reported out having listeners in the US, the UK, Ireland, Canada, and Costa Rica.
They discussed various aspects of history, a legendary
Lady in White
(about whom Craig explained),
Patrick spoke about
being shot and killed within seconds of each other, as well as history of other officers' experiences.
Kat brought up that the mournful melody
was created during that period.
Mike was brought back to discuss experiences some of his workers have had, in the store and the living quarters.
CC asked after there being a cellar, which there is, at four foot hight, it's close to being a crawlspace.
CC suspected it may have originally been a root cellar.
Mike indicated their once getting a response from a Ghost Box, but that they "don't spend a lot of time down there."
Henry spoke about the night before his wife notified him that
their basement had flooded
from a water softener filter.
Our guests were all thanked as we wrapped up the show, and whilst an
kept chirping away, they all laughed merrily during the end "credits" outro.
