Questions that require a little more than 2 or 3 line answers are usually posted as blog entries.  However, here are some FAQ's we get.  We'll continue to update this page as needed.  There's links at the bottom to questions that where answered as blog posts.

If you have a question please feel to ask.  You can email us by clicking HERE or fill out the "Contact Us" on the right.  Come on, don't be shy.  😃

-Do you do ghost hunting tours at your home?

No.  We are a true working ranch/farm with lots of animals and a lot things going on nearly a daily basis.  Doing this would require more work on our part.  Also, we are careful who we allow here since this is our home.

-Do you have paranormal teams investigate your place?

No.  Ever since our first and only experience with a paranormal team we've decided it is not a wise move to have investigations.  We have turned down many request.  Even though some teams are wonderful, respectful, and professional, we just cannot take the risk.

-During your episode, Jennifer said you breed dogs and have over 20!  Isn't that a puppy mill?

We are absolutely not a puppy mill!  We don't have any cages and our animals are free to roam our property.   They are loved, spoiled, and socially active.  We do not breed unnecessarily and most puppies are sold before they are born.  We do not over breed our females.  We are a licensed animal breeder by the Missouri Dept of Agriculture and inspected annually.  We also have a veterinarian on call 24/7.

-What type of dogs do you breed?

Miniature Schnauzers.  Teacup, Toys, and Minis

-How long did it take for them to film your episode?

I think the entire filming process took about 5-7 days.

-Have you been approached by other paranormal shows?

Yes, but we've declined

-Your ranch is named Mis Mas Tejas, what does that mean?

It's Spanish and loosely translated it means "Just like Texas."

-They say on the show you've lived in your home for 8 years, are you from the area originally?

No, we are actually from Texas.  All of us were born in Texas and moving here was the first time we ever lived outside of Texas.  Even though we don't live there anymore, we are still proud native Texans.

-What do you do for a living?

We are self employed and working this place is hard work.

-Steve interviewed your 3 beautiful daughters, do you have any other children who weren't on the show?

We actually have 6 children.  We have 4 daughters together and Jennifer has 2 boys from a previous marriage.  Our children range in ages from 30 to 11.

-How long have you two been married?

As of this answer, 25 years and counting.

-What was it like to work with Amy and Steve?

Amazing!  As a matter of fact the entire crew at Painless Productions treated us with respect the whole time.  We had a lot of fun with them.  When they use the word "Client" they truly mean it.

-Do you still talk to Amy and Steve?

We keep in touch with Amy but haven't talked to Steve since filming.

-If you had to do it again, would you be on the Dead Files?

Yes, without hesitation.

-Do you talk to others that have been on the show?

Yes.  We are friends with several of them.

-Your family has been very open about your experiences, why is that?

Our goal is to help others who are having similar experience but are afraid of coming forward.  Our hope in sharing our story is that it will give them the strength and courage to get the help they need.  No one should suffer in silence out of fear of being judged or ridiculed.

-Are some of your friends scared to come over to your house?

Yes, however, that is starting to change and we are having more people come over.  There are still some that are too scared to come to our house.

-You talk about your dog, Maya, in a blog post.  Is she still with you?

Yes, Maya is still here and still protecting us.  She's a big part of our family.  You can follow Maya on Twitter!

-Did you get to meet Matt when they filmed your episode?

Unfortunately, no we didn't get to meet him.

-The psychic from the paranormal group that was at your house seems very unprofessional.  Do you plan on ever naming her in your blog?

At least at this time, no.  We are choosing to take the high road.  Besides, we don't need any of her negativity in our lives.
