You have to be special to be in this cemetery

A photo of MaryI made a trip to Red Bay to the Big Bee factory to pick up a new belt for my five foot finishing mower recently.  Red Bay close to the Mississippi state line is the home of Tiffin Motor Homes.  Go during the week and you’ll see motor homes in various stages of completion from a chassis with only the seat and motor to fully finished taking test drives around town.

Coming back home, I decided to swing by the Key Underwood Coon Dog Cemetery deep in the Freedom Hills Refuge as I hadn’t been there since school. We won’t discuss how far back that was.  It is somewhere between Red Bay, Cherokee, Tuscumbia and the Natchez Trace Parkway.  Just about the time I decided that I had missed the turnoff, there it was.  The only thing I met going in and coming back to Hwy 247 was a squirrel.  The cemetery is so peaceful and quiet unlike some of our human cemeteries.

I got the same message and had to delete a couple of words in order for it to post.

Thanks Cindy, some of these screening software really is frustrating some times trying to do a comment. I did a story last year on my gardening blog about my 3 dogs experience with the snow we got. Something with the word hooligans and the word big in front of snow got a lot of traffic from bad sites. I've taken a lot of grief from my friends trying to get phone numbers for my new phone. I love the old part of the cemeteries in Charleston and Savannah. Our local cemetery has 150 unknown Confederate soldiers buried there from the battle of Tuscumbia. A local group handmade headstones for each grave and will have a ceremony this weekend. I'm going to try and take some pictures if it doesn't conflict with the historical waling tour our town has been in April.

Yep, it was the breed of dog that kept my comment from posting.
