#100HappyDays: Day 51
Old Graveyards


Bear with me here... I'm not some creepy nightwalker who feels it necessary to commune with the dead.

However...

There is so much freaking history in old graveyards.

My dad has some land over to the West of Nashville that has a couple of small, abandoned graveyards dating back to the early 1800s, and I find it to be incredibly interesting. This goes hand-in-hand with yesterday's post about my fascination with history. There's so much you can learn about a culture through their graveyards.

For example, in one of the graveyards on my dad's land, there was a rash of deaths all occurring at the same time, literally within days of each other. It leaves you to wonder why. Was there a sickness that came around? Was there a tragic accident? I'm betting on sickness based on the fact that it was a bunch of children and older people.

At the end of the day. SUPER interesting. I wouldn't live next door to one, though. That's just creepy.

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.
EggplantsOne-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater (see below)Bruises (sometimes)a REALLY beautiful sunsetElizabeth Taylor's eyes (does violet count?)Barney (I love you, you love me...)GrapesLavendarOrchidsAmethystCabbage (sometimes)Lots of different birdsPlumsVioletsOnionsROYGBIVThat's all I can think of. You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
