“Cue graveyard cackles.”

It’s funny that I completed my 28 day challenge yesterday but Tuesday is not Tuesday without my Twittering Tales challenge so here it is!

My feature photo was taken near Cobh in Ireland in the Old Church Cemetery and Lusitania Monument earlier this year with my iPhone .

PS. I would have preferred the word Imbecile to Idiot but I pride myself in respecting the 280 character limit as if it really was a Tweet the story would have been incomplete.
