I stopped by for a visit to make my log official.  Photos here are from a previous visit.  One my original visit a long time ago there was no auto dealer next door.  Though things are more closed in the cemetery seemed better kept.  Perhaps the local businesses have a reason to help keep things clean?

Legends of abandoned old graveyards and some not so abandoned abound-the crying dog in the cemetary well, the wandering ghost of Long Tom March, who carries a deck of cards and won't rest until he finds a winning poker hand. Next to a graveyard where an arm is buried, the old piano in the fogotten church plays. These and other tales along with some more recent real-life experiences will intrigue you, skeptic or not.
Read the tales with an open mind. They are for pleasure, a bit of paranormal, a little seriousness, and hopefully a laugh or two. If you are a nonbeliever in the supernatural, you may change your skepticism is etched in stone. Then again the author learned that nothing is etched in stone forever.
This humorous book also includes some unusual coffins, tombstones, and epitaphs as well as some early Texas burial traditions.
