Damnable, Devastating, Distressing Decapitation

Decapitation.  First thing that comes to mind?  Do you think of the Headless Horseman?  Marie Antoinette and the infamous guillotine?  The Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland bellowing, “Off with her head!” Anne Boylen and King Henry’s hunger for a son? I got onto a decapitation kick after my Marie Antoinette and the brioche blog. Naturally, anything… Continue reading Damnable, Devastating, Distressing Decapitation

Lacrymose, Lamentful, Lousy, Lemp Family Suicides

Imagine four family members committing suicide by shotgun, three of which were in the same house, and a fourth elsewhere.

I was wrong…that’s probably a good thing, although it would make for an interesting story. Strangely, all of the family… Continue reading Lacrymose, Lamentful, Lousy, Lemp Family Suicides
