Friday Cemetery Blogging
The picture this week is from the Big Flat City Cemetery. I love long, tree-lined drives. The best one I've seen in Andrews, Texas. There are two long lanes bounded by huge old elm trees in their city cemetery. They shade the entire cemetery and they make the whole place about 15 degrees cooler than anywhere else in the area. On any given summer evening you can find a dozen or so people walking in the peaceful coolness. I heard the county commission wants to cut the trees down. I have no idea why. Rampaging stupidity fueled by extensive in-breeding and years of pesticide abuse is my guess.
It was rainy and snowy for most of the day today. My favorite kind of weather. Stick-Boy, the least unreliable of the local weather guys, says we might get more of the same tomorrow. I certainly hope so.
Tonight was the last night of our DWI classes for a while. I'm gonna miss that particular group of drunks. They were a lot of fun. I learned some neat things about some of them, including one of my own guys who is frequently on my list of people I would like to hit with my truck. He talked to me about how he loves to read. He never finished high school, but he just finished Dante's Inferno. For the second time! He's about to start on the Odyssey. We had a really good conversation about Joseph Campbell's hero theories. Who wouldda thought??!
