Guarding the Tomb
In all my cemetery travels, this is the strangest guardian of a tomb I have seen. When I first married so many years ago, I really, really, really want a Cigar Store Indian, just like this guy. We never found one we could afford and my tastes eventually changed although I have to admit seeing this guy still kind of makes my heart swoon!
I don't know if I mentioned here that I had signed up to participate in a Photo Walk in a town about two hours away from mine and when I got there, I couldn't find the group! I was so disappointed! When I got back home and email the sponsor, it turned out that I was right on top of where they were supposed to meet! I had walked around a little while, thinking surely the area where they were going to be was so small that I had to run into them eventually but, alas, I am talented at missing the obvious!
On the way home, I stopped at this cemetery in the middle of nowhere. I am not sure I could find it again if I wanted to (or if I wanted to return and ask this guy to come home with me)! This was about the only statue of interest in this particular cemetery.
