Monday's Mug: The Castle




Monday's Mug

My childhood memories of The Castle 
are of swing sets and green grass, 
tall stone walls, 
a haunted room upstairs where 
an image of a man (ghost) 
could be seen every evening at dusk, 
(I saw it, but wasn't convinced)
 and the angelic and colorful ceiling
 above my Aunt Ollie's living room 
that reminded me of a 
beautifully decorated birthday cake.    

The Castle has changed hands a number of times since Aunt Ollie owned it, and Aunt Ollie has since passed away. 

 But the memories...  oh the memories
 I have of that place!!
