The winding avenue carpeted with daffodils beneath the mighty Horse Chestnuts heralded a magnificent entrance to McGregor Castle. The tourists disembarked eagerly from their luxury coach. 
"Welcome to my home, I am the Earl of Blackthorn Estate, 700 years in the family," James spoke with distaste for these unwanted but financially necessary guests.  
"Wow, 700 years, that sure makes a good span for ghosts and skeletons in the closet then," a large voice boomed in a hearty manner from the group. 
"Oh indeed, but it is not the dead you should fear but the living, and by that I mean the hungry rats beneath the floorboards," James responded in a serious tone.
