Notes from the Lizzie Borden House Part One

On July 22, 2013, a dozen horror writers descended upon the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast in Fall River, Massachusetts. Everyone except the hostess of the radio show had attended the four day horror writers convention fondly known as Necon.

The weekend consisted of many late nights of talking with like-minded people. The enthusiasm and fun of such a convention is revitalizing and in such cases, the idea of bed always feels like there will be something missed.

The hostess of Supernatural Radio Show needed to be picked up so while Lisa Mannetti and Dennis Cummins drove a few hours to acquire the lovely Miss Corrine de Winter, a bunch of us went to Lovecraft's grave.

After wandering through the graveyard, we headed to the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast.

The minute I walked into the Lizzie Borden House, I encountered the wall of oppression that I hadn't experienced the past couple of times I'd been there.

I wandered through the rooms, reminding myself which rooms had stories and which ones I'd witnessed odd experiences in throughout the years.

The tour guide, David, was ready to help the guests, but first, we needed dinner.

It's always difficult to figure out what to do about dinner but options are limited on a Sunday in Fall River. I hadn't eaten a good meal in days or I would have stayed behind to focus on the show.

The first place we tried was too crowded and our group of twelve would have waited forever to obtain tables and eat.

The next place we tried had a moosehead on the wall. I have an irrational fear of mooseheads so it made me uncomfortable.

However, we stayed. I had a bowl of very delicious clam chowder.

By the time the turtle speed waitress had finished with us, there was only half an hour until showtime which meant that I would miss the tour that I had badly wanted to see.

Such is the price of show business.

I always take many selfies in the mirrors at Lizzie's. I just know one day I'll find something in the mirror that I can't explain.
