Story: A Gothic Horror Suspense Tale of a man and his son who are both "not quite right in the head", so to say. Reminds me a bit of the man in Woolworth's years ago who was seeing in his mind's eye the Battle of Waterloo taking place. Must have been exciting to him, I guess as I was always curious what he was actually "seeing" as he seemed to be directing things as if standing on a hill while watching. If I wasn't so meek I should have gone up to him and asked. And then, suddenly, you find yourself actually at the battle. Etc. Wouldn't it be interesting if some of these people were actually seeing some of the stuff they go around mumbling about??. After all, it's a strange world we live in, folks. 004678
