Hi guys – playing catch up. Thank you for your even and fair treatment of ghost believers. I have seen some pretty unusual things and have in the past sincerely believed those things were ghosts. I have since come to more rational explanations.
As for kangaroos in Barrhaven, not as impossible as one might think. Watson’s Corners in Lanark County has long been the Kangaroo Capital of Canada. See http://www.lanarkcountytourism.ca/files/2012/04/Local-Beasts.pdf
for more info. (contrary to the article, I heard of roos in Watson’s Corners in the 70’s possibly late 60’s) Perhaps they migrated south east a bit. That there was at least one bootlegger in the area selling local shine and that the wild hemp grew a little taller and greener than usual around the hippy commune near our cottage probably have nothing to do with visions of kangaroos.
