I love road trips! But I prefer the ones that are bathed in sunshine. Unfortunately, this one fell during the monsoons that are the remnants of a hurricane, so it was more a “pontoon trip” than a “road trip.” I have the soggy shoes and socks to prove it. Yuck. :(
But on the positive side, this was a trip spent almost entirely on “blue highways.” After getting past St. Louis, I was exclusively on the state and county roads that I enjoy.
Meanwhile, I have finally purchased a digital camera and am beginning to learn how to use it.
In the last couple of hours of this trip, the sun finally came out, and I was approaching a site that I have often wished to document. I always chuckle when I pass this site, but this is the first time I’ve stopped to snap a photo. So here you have it.
It’s a tiny little cemetery, this Useful Cemetery. It’s not owned by any city or congregation. I wonder who owns and manages it. Looking at the graves and markers, I found ones dating from the late 19th century until just last month.
Perhaps I’ll someday have my ashes interred in a Useful Cemetery.
