ON THE BACK BURNER

April 8

I didn't get to visit Bob today as I usually do on a Sunday.I have too many dogs and cats on my plate , so I will have to visit the cemetery during the week.  It's good to know that he is in a safe place that is well taken care of ,so I really have nothing special to do when I do visit.I remember going to my Grandparents graves in New Orleans. Even though we had what is called perpetual care, the graves were unkept , and my parents had to pull weeds and do some trimming. I am not sure what happened to this Jewish cemetery after Katrina. I think that it was in the  path of the surging water. i really like cemeteries. In some small towns, where you wouldn't expect to find any Jews, there is usually a section, some where in the back , that has the few Jews from the town buried. I like to read tomb stones. For a while, and maybe some people still do this, it was popular to do rubbings of engravings on the stones. I could never understand what you would do with the rubbings afterwards , unless they were family members. Different strokes for different folks.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
