“Always at her Side”

to the tower

I thought everyone would enjoy a nice “Halloweeny” story on this day.
Sir Walter Raleigh was executed at the Tower of London on this day in 1618.

His embalmed head was presented to his widow. She kept it at her side for 29 years.
Twenty-nine years, that is longer than most marriages survive.
Did she speak with him…….hold him……tell him she hated him ……..
One wonders……..

Speaking of the Tower of London, apparently a while ago, a fox managed to kill two of the Ravens. The Tower has since replaced the two and steps to safeguard the Tower mascots have gotten underway. Thankfully, the Tower is still standing…….

Have a Haunted, Magickal Halloween,
