PHASERS ON STUN ???

PHASERSONSTUN ??Andrew HennesseyThe lights of the city of Edinburgh glimmered and glinted over the river estuary called the Firth of Forth.It was a still, calm night.At Cruicks point, there is a famous scrap metal yard called Dalton's on land historically donated by Papal Bull from the Pope.There is also a quarry.Beyond the mountains of rusting desolation lay the sea and the glimmering lights of Edinburgh.The sky above though was very disturbing.Directly above where I stood on the little peninsula was a glowing green canopy of light .. its crown directly and centrally overhead whilst the flanks of this tent billowed with variegated green veins and sheets.It was like the aurora borealis only it was all green and it was directly overhead.There is a song in Scotland called 'The Northern Lights of old Aberdeen' but this was not Aberdeen and wasn't that far north.I now know that this stuff has chased a witness in Gorebridge, Midlothian up the street !! But I…

THE ICE CREAM VAN

THEICECREAMVANAndrew HennesseySummer in the Ancient Kingdom of Fife near Dunfermline the so-called spiritual heart of Scotland is a time of high spirits.I say this because there were rumours that the naval shipyard at Rosyth was allegedly shipping in substances destined to be abused.I had also heard a story from Dangerous Dan that a man who was going to spill the beans on what sort of stuff was under the deck plates met with an unfortunate accident.Well maybe not an accident for he was allegedly shot in his car in a lay-by in northern Scotland.It was true that on some nights there were convoys of all white vehicles driven by men in black uniforms wearing black baseball caps.They would snake along ferrytoll road past the deep underground base heading out to supply some unknown parties with important assistance.Perhaps this was the research division of the rather decrepit yard shipping out important parts during the refurbishment of the outlying cold war deep base.Much o…

A TV DINNER IN GOREBRIDGE

A TV DINNER IN GOREBRIDGE.Andrew HennesseyNewbattle Abbey at Eskbank near Edinburgh has been long known as an area of strange activity. Local Monks in medieval times, and Druids and Templars, Magicians and Wiccans had been said to congregate in the older underground chambers and caves that the later Christians had built over.From certain vents and air holes above these in the 1970's could be heard the sound of machinery chugging away from some deep place and certain people that one would associate with an army camp had it been open for business were frequently seen in the local woods.Shuggy and his two other friends were playing as children in the Gorebridge area often did, at Newbattle Abbey. They were looking for apples from the trees at the old army camp, which in the late 1960's had been long abandoned and overgrown.Through the tall wire mesh fences, their barbed wire, now rusted and a bit dangerous looking for a shaky climb, could be seen the old barrack …
