This has nothing to do with today's post. Well, sort of.
I dig graves; know what I mean?
In Richmond, Virginia there is a very nice cemetery called Hollywood Cemetery that was designed in 1847. Built among hills, the many tombs and gravestones are tiered. It is quite nice with a lovely view of the James River because the dead get nostalgic for the water as much as the living. Among the residents of Hollywood Cemetery are former US Presidents James Monroe and John Tyler. My wife and I took a short drive through it last year and took some pictures. We plan to take a longer tour when time permits.

And remember to keep your pumpkins lit.
