Visit the sawmill that was run by a wizard and his satanic imps... purportedly @roadtrippers.com

Visit the sawmill that was run by a wizard and his satanic imps... purportedly @roadtrippers.com | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it

Mill Pond in Easton, Massachusetts is a weird place. According to pretty much anyone who visits, they have one heck of a fishin' pond, but it's the story that surrounds the body of water that's the really interesting part…

Just across the street from the Easton Cemetery is a mysterious sign that was erected by the Easton Conservation Commission in 1999. The sign marks the spot of an old sawmill built by a local man named John Selee in the 18th century and reads as follows:

'Site of the sawmill built by John Selee in the 18th century and continued by his son, Nathan, a wizard who purportedly used satanic imps to run the mill at night.'

 
Marianne Riddile's insight:

Now-a-days, said imps are called "Merry Maids" and they arrive in a white Prius full of cleaning supplies. --Come on down!

Marianne Riddile's insight:

OMG--I have not encountered this one but I did get brushed by a a caterpillar that fell on my neck from an oak tree in South Carolina.  I was in agony for 2 days before finally going to a clinic and getting steroids to help relieve the swelling and pain.  By the way, if you get the caterpillar fuzz on you, you are supposed to use scotch tape to remove the hairs.  Do not try to brush them off. That makes it worse.

Marianne Riddile's insight:

Many motorhomers and RV'ers travel with their pets.  The potential for these pets becoming lost is great.  Not just in campgrounds but at fuel stops and rest stops too.  Make sure you have your pets microchipped and carry a recent and clear, well-exposed photo of them so you have it to make copies/flyers if need be.
