I took the advice of Ghlee Woodworth and drove through Oak Hill Cemetery over the weekend.
Hard to believe I had the time, with all the conversing I did this weekend, but I did it.
What will you think of me when I say I'd never been in there before?
Next time, I'll actually get out of the car and walk around. Ghlee has an interesting bit in her book Tiptoe Through the Tombstones about people's fascination in the 19th century with graveyards and making them into elaborate places where people went to picnic and otherwise socialize.
I belatedly say that I highly recommend the book. Not only is the content interesting, but it is visually very appealing, which I really like in anything that I am reading, or even places that I am living.
That's mostly what I didn't like about living in southern Michigan.
