And Now For Something Completely Different
About half of the people buried here were children.
These two markers were swallowed up by a tree.
Civil War Vets.
Jody noticed this old mailbox inside the gate and asked about it. Apparently it's the "dead letter box." Hey, it's not my joke - that's what the tour director said.
After the tour, we went to lunch at the Longfellow Grille. Great food and great conversation. We caught up, talked about family and friends and what's been happening in our lives. We also debated some of the great food issues of our generation - we agree on Jif over Skippy, Heinz instead of Hunts, and that Ambassador hotdogs are the best. We do differ on plain vs. ripple chips, and Jody likes Lays but I'm an Old Dutch kind of girl. But, we were able to put these differences aside, and we remain friends.
