Friday Cemetery Blogging

"If I've swept this place once, I've swept it a thousand times! If those rotten zombies don't stop traipsing through here, leaving their slime everywhere, heads are gonna roll!"

Have y'all noticed how eternally bored the angels are in cemeteries? You never see a happy one. I guess that would be considered bad form.

They remind me of the poor highway patrolman who gets stuck working in the driver's license office for the entirety of his career. Some of 'em, both the angels and the driver testers, are downright surly.

Bored is better than creepy. I saw a statue of a little boy at Home Depot the other day with those dead eyes that stare blankly at you. I couldn't imagine why anyone would want that in their garden.

I think the idea was that the angels are supposed to look sombre. But you're right, they usually look bored. Like this one.

You are so funny. I guess it is MORE FUN AT HOME THAN IT IS AT WORK.

I'm just saying.

Like I told Mindy, your angel blogging would make a bestseller coffeetable book.

This angel looks a bit disapproving. Just like my mama would look before sweeping my bedroom floor when I was a kid.

She does look crabby.

Oh, but the angel statues are all so beautiful in their own way - especially with their weathered faces.
