My Photo


  • a happy, ordinary, middle-aged, suburban woman who paints odd pictures, gardens in a straw hat, lives with the love of her life, is owned by one cat and the ghosts of several others, and walks a little funny 'cause she has a fake leg. She started this website because there's more to life than what we lose, and we need to let each other know what's possible, even if it's only a happy, ordinary life.

What a great tour. Thanks. And the squirrel nipples are perfect indeed. She probably ran back to her wool lined nest if she is any relation to the Toronto squirrels.


Somehow I never got to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, even when I lived in Concord. Will have to check it out sometime.

And squirrel nipples. Now that's something I've never seen before, though I have seen baby squirrels chasing each other around a tree - very cute. Was mama squirrel looking for her babies?

Nice tour!

Yes, there MUST be drapery. No matter what? YES! Don't question it. It's better that way.

I do love those kinds of things.

I would love to see this cemetery, gorgeous. Of course I would need a chaperone!


As an intrepid tourer of cemetaries I thank you for your post.

It reminded me of my two favourite cemetaries in the world: Mount Mariah in Deadwood, SD, USA & Pere Lachaise in Paris, France.



I have never been to SD, but I have very fond memories of hot summer days spent in Père Lachaise. What PL has that this place does not, besides a slightly different roster of luminaries at rest including Morrison, Piaf, Chopin, and Moliére, are lots and lots of scroungy looking feral cats. Also, many of the tombs of PL are family mausolea which include tiny chapels, and while some are nicely kept, some are falling into right creepy disrepair. And they are all packed in very close together in a true urban environment, which makes PL much more a true necropolis than Sleepy Hollow. Sleepy Hollow is more like a necrovillage.
