Cemetery mornings

Now who could ask for a prettier place to take a walk these May mornings than the Chariton Cemetery. I was heading south here this morning toward the little restroom building constructed in 1929, complete with fireplace, so that cemetery visitors would have a place to rest once they got here. It's kept locked most of the time these days, but would be in immaculate condition --- if someone would sweep up the dead flies all over the highly polished hardwood floor that were fairly obvious when I stuck my nose up against the front door glass. Since Memorial Day's coming, I expect someone will get to that before then.

If you climb through the pines in the distance to the top of the next hill, the Chariton River valley will spread out before you.
