] TWIW was dramatised by the BBC yonks ago
I've never heard that phrase, but I like it!

Okay, I'm getting jealous here....
] The reason I bring it up now, is that the park had a ghost, a white lady who flitted between the two lodge-houses and a narrow path bordering the lake. She wasn't harmful, as far as I know, but of course, as children, we were terrified of meeting her one day.
Did you ever see it? When we lived in England (not for very

was pretty skeptical but I swear I believed in it before I
When you did all that work for the Historical Society, did
they mention what the story behind the ghost was, or only
that it was there?
] It was much later that I learned that Wilkie Collins had written TWIW when staying at the house.The name of the house was Frogmore Park, and the name of the village was (is) Blackwater..........
Wow! So, was it weird reading the book?
