An Englishman’s Home …

They do say an Englishman’s home is his castle. Seems this chap has raised his drawbridge and issued a warning.

    Faced with that sign, I believe I would, in fact, keep out! It makes me wonder what laws there might be about hanging an *actual* skull, with real bones, on one’s gate. Or in one’s home, for that matter. Not that I’m considering redecorating along those lines, mind you!

      Um, I’m not sure. Of course, that sign was resin. I did have a human thigh bone, picked up on Dunwich beach where the local churchyard had crumbled and all the graves fallen (coastal erosion). I think it’s owner had met with a violent death. It had an barely healed, quite deep cut across it. I ouched just to look at it. I don’t know what happened to it. Yea. I wonder …

        Finding an old thigh bone on a beach — especially one with an obvious injury — sounds so exciting and so disturbing at the same time that now I want to write a story with that as the prompt. I assume you handed it into the proper authorities, but who would be “proper” in this case? I imagine they would have to check to see if it was really from an old grave, or perhaps evidence in a more recent missing persons / foul play case.

        The correct place is the local museum.
