Elizabeth Johnson Jr, how many other names of people who lived 300 years ago do you know? Not many I’ll bet, Salem made her a star of history.
OK, the state exonerated her as a political move without evidence of innocence. She was the only one left guilty as a warning to other witches, and they would have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for those meddling kids.

First it was alcohol kills Covid. Then heat may kill Covid. Now direct sunlight may kill Covid. So if you see me outside in my yard drunk, naked, and laying in the sun, mind your own business. I'm conducting important medical experiments.


Happy Friday Miss C.

Sound to scare the enemy. On exercise we had a piper start playing off by himself one dim and misty morning prior to us attacking the 'bad guys'. They said it was unnerving. One lone piper, not exactly sure where he was or why he was there.
