The Strangest Pub I didn’t go in

First of all, I’ll confess that the title of the post was going to be the weirdest no the wierdest pub but I couldn’t make my mind up how to spell it. Do you ever get letter blind and unable to spell a word that you’ve written a million times? Please don’t all say no, you’re losing it G šŸ™‚

Anyway, back to the strange pub. It’s called the Highwayman and it’s on Dartmoor. Here he is holding up a coach!

Here’s the man himself, unless you want to risk highway robbery,get off the moor before night falls.

What a weird place, I’ve heard it’s even stranger inside. They have rooms if you want to stay, but of course it’s haunted.

  1. Yes, I’d say that’s pretty weird. Every once in a while I’m writing along and all of a sudden can’t decide which spelling is correct for a word I want to use. That’s when I bless the Internet and pull up a new page and type in the spelling I think is correct. Whether it is or not, the word comes up, and I have the right spelling in front of me.

  2. Word blind – happens to me all the time. And I am also good at typing so fast that the letters get transposed – and sometimes my brain gets left behind! As for that pub, I think I would avoid going inside, it looks more than a little spooky. Mindst you there are lots of weird pubs in this part of the world!!

  3. I completely understand your word blindness over the word “weird”. I also get stuck on that word. I overthink it. Whenever I go to type “weird”, I stop, think, think again and then spell it incorrectly! Weird, or what?

  4. It’s when the brain is so full of other stuff Gilly words get scrambled sometimes šŸ™‚. Could this not be based on the famous Dick Turpin and Black Bess legend? Did ‘t he skulk around robbing coaches? It does look rather spooky -šŸ˜±

  5. How did the horse get up there!!!

    Not only do I suffer from your type of word blind, I also have the one where I consistency spell a short word wrong. For years also was aslo!

  6. Becky is weird! (but don’t tell her šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ ) She’s lovely, really! I do rather struggle with the pink doors, but otherwise, perfectly normal. šŸ™‚ Always wanted to meet Dick.

I would love to hear from you . . .
