A creepy, wry ghost story.
Willie McPhee has fallen on hard times. Finest bagpiper in all Scotland or not, if folks don’t have a farthing to spare for amusement, a man could freeze.
Now, wandering near—shoeless in the dark heart of the cold woods, Willie McPhee has fallen on something else—a tree trunk, he thinks. But a closer look reveals it’s a man, a DEAD man, lying in the snow. A—A—A—aaaaaah!
A poor man is a practical man, though, and that body is wearing a fine—looking pair of boots. Soon Willie’s feet are warm…but who’s that tapping on the door?
