What I Saw at Laurel Hill Cemetery


Gone to sleep they lie in flowered graves
For the visitors and Guidebook saved,
But come the trumpet-shattered dawn
Will the spirit they shared be reborn . . . 

Comrades in arms, may they rise, fight and shine again,
'Til "Who goes there?" will be answered with "Friend" again.

What I Saw - May 27, 2011


 Trash cans are back at River Park, and so, 
apparently, are picnic tables.  

 Chiques Rock Outfitters open for business  

 Tiger Swallowtail  

 This conservation officer kept giving me 
disapproving looks, so naturally I had to take his picture. 

I mentioned the problem with this light  

 Last night's storm finally knocked the cover off.  

This was posted in one of the windows of 
the Columbia Water Company.  Somehow, I get 
the feeling I missed something.
