The runt did not survive. Sunday, I was still hoping. Monday, I started to face the facts. Tuesday, reality. So, there is that. Just make the coffee and carry on.
Monday, I had the opportunity to speak at our local Rotary meeting. They are a welcoming, nice, intelligent, fun & funny, kind group of good people from our community. You all were there with me in a way, as I spoke about blogging. I was able to brag on my blogging friends and what a neat community it is. We were able to bring up my blog on the big screen television and take a stroll through the front and back pages of justmakethecoffee. Thank you fellow bloggers and followers/readers for being part of this blog! Thank you Jerry for asking me to speak.
Yesterday, after a morning of errands, picking up feed (which I still need to unload – thank you for reminding me) and taking our mower to John Deere, I asked my mom if she wanted to ride along for a drive to scenic, historic, Williamsburg Hill. My parents farmed just west of there for my entire lifetime … and much of theirs. Ridge Cemetery at the top of Williamsburg Hill is touted as one of the most haunted places in Illinois. Nothing creepy happened during our visit, though. I took a few photos, but none were great. Maybe the ghosts interfered with my camera. The colors were so much more vivid than the pictures show.
I hope you get to take a little side/road trip in your near future.
I don’t know why, but I love walking through old cemeteries. The tree in that one is super cool!
My Mom and I do, too. Lots of history!
Your history is so far from ours. We weren’t even out of Mexican rule in 1860. Of course, we didn’t even know about the Civil war…
Fascinating! It’s such a cool, historical place.
And to walk there….I would LOVE to walk there!!!
Sheesh, Marla, you didn’t even tell us WHY it is purported to be one of the most haunted cemetaries. Sorry about the piglet.
Oh, I think I will have to write a blog-post just about that! I may have to go back for more pictures….
Old cemeteries are interesting, though I don’t have the opportunity to visit much. That is a great tree. It’s nice to see one able to spread out as much as it wants. Your mom looks cute in her jacket.
🙂 I hope I look that great at 81.
Love old graveyards. They reveal such a lot of history.
I need to write another post about this one’s history. They are neat!!
