There's a Bagdad in Florida?
Our town has 2 cemeteries. One is owned by the catholic church, the other is owned by the town. St. Mary's cemetery is in the area that I grew up in. Did a lot of partying there and it was the place where I first got stoned. Got a couple cases of stink finger too. Such a romantic setting.
All the way in the back of the cemetery bordering a wooded area are tiny stones and markers with dates of late 1800's and early 20th century. Many lived short lives. I still go there as I have family eternally resting in the dirt.

Here are two pizzas I made. The first is a supreme, with pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, olives, onion, and bell pepper. The second has pepperoni, Italian sausage, and bacon. I make the Italian sausage from pork and spices.

I noticed fences up around most grave yards. I guess folks are just dying to get in.

That is arminius and sister with father and two of his sisters, two aunties.

Three years later, we moved to chicago, just before younger brother was born. This was our first place in chicago. ~1956

Portrait of a couple of the cats that live around here. All were strays that would have been long dead if I hadn't brought them back.

I think they're about done gluing out fifty million dollar bridge back together...



Interesting, what happened? Did a ship hit it?

I live near Pensacola, FL. One of our MAIN bridges was taken out by 24 runaway construction barges during the hurricane this last September. Dropped 4 spans and damaged a bunch more on the 3-mile long structure. Repair time will be in the 6-7 month range and in the meantime, it has really f*cked things up around here. A significant portion of the city metro is cut loose from the remainder without a long detour.
