Abby in Salem, MA

Since Nina, one of Abby’s friends, believes that there are ghosts in Stoughton, MA, Abby decided to take a trip to Salem, MA and see if she could find some witches.  You know what?  She did.  The statue behind us is that of Elizabeth Montgomery who played Samantha in Bewitched.  When I was a kid in Ecuador, I used to love that show.  And by the way, that’s the reason why I have a smile from ear to ear.  I got to “see” Samantha.
