If you know the tone of voice in which to read that title, kudos. Also it probably means we’re in the same family. So far no signs if dead bodies or the Shakespeare Arms, though. Unfortunately.
Windermere! Lake Windermere!
I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes. View all posts by erinreeve

Local boatmen? And—that is a shame about no Shakespeare Arms. And what do all those discs in that last picture signify?
They’re coins, stuck inside the stump. I can only assume they’re for good luck. Katie added one, but I’m ok with my luck ATM.
We are with you in spirit.
So apparently the coin thing is done all around Scotland for luck – by tourists and natives. I was with a group walking along in the highlands (sheep-galore, man) and we found a huge fallen tree with coins stuck in it all up and down the trunk – from tons of different countries. Actually, one of my profs took a few…stealing some poor fool’s luck away I suppose. But it was crazy looking!
Yeah, not the highlands in Scotland – in Grasmere in the Lake District – near one of Wordsworth’s homes.
