Greetings to all folks near and far.
I can scarcely believe that summer time, picnics, family barbecues and summer potlucks are almost here once again. It is time for potato salad and fried chicken, barbecued hot dogs, homemade pies and cookies for family gatherings, and fun summer time events. Vacations will be looked forward to, even if one stays home and enjoys their own backyard.
My brother took a vacation with friends and visited Scotland. He had many pictures and stories to tell me when he got back home. One story I found very interesting was about a young woman named Maggie Dickson who lived in Musselburgh, Scotland during the 1700s. I did some research and found out about Maggie. Her story is fascinating, shocking, and chilling.
Here is my latest article from the Folklore and Mythology site at BellaOnline.com.
Maggie Dickson - Convicted and Executed Yet Lived
Maggie was convicted of murder, tried, executed, then lived another forty years.
Did you know that many consider Scotland the most haunted place in the world -- it is true. Mary King's Close is where Maggie is often seen wandering in spirit. I hope you read about Maggie then join me in my forum to share other ghostly stories and hauntings.
Till next time, may all your days be full of sunshine, soft gentle rains, rainbows and butterflies. Blessing to you and yours and may you walk in peace and harmony.
