This week: headstones that remind me of the skeletal remains of ancestors that are lying below me...to taking care of animals. That has been part of my life this week. Also going with friends to new places, which is the joy of it all.
I left you last at Part 4, Mountain Veiw and Black Mountain Cemeteries, just a few hours ago. Today I want to be sure to catch the opportunity to share on Sepia Saturday (HERE) while it's an open topic. And at this point in my life, the cemeteries and animals are the highlights. (Incidentally, I'm very grateful that I'm feeling well and able to take part in all these activities!) Oh, animal notes are on my pottery blog today (HERE).
So back to Mountain View...
These graves are near the Tabernacle Methodist Church, but I didn't go far enough to see when it became Mountain View. We were looking for the oldest grave.
