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.


  1. That's sorta cool. Never seen that in a cemetery before, either. :) My mom always wanted one of those guys, too.

  2. That's funny, Rach, that your mom always wanted one too!

  3. We could possibly get her one, Rach! Just say the word! Just kidding!

    I tried to leave this comment earlier and it never showed up. That's bad when you can't even comment on your own blog!

  4. Experimenting to see what happens when I sign in with my google account.


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
