Amazing Coincidence

Today was such a lovely, picture perfect, day that we thought we'd don our matching cemetery shirts and visit a local cemetery. We had not visited the "newest" cemetery in Stow which is the only one that has "room" to grow. It is called Brookside and is on Gleasondale Road.

So, I grabbed my camera and off we went. We drove past the cemetery and up a side street to see the back of the cemetery first where the newest plots are and then, we drove around inside to get a feel for the size.

Amazingly, not five minutes after arriving, up drives the cemetery supervisor that I met yesterday! We stood and talked to him for a while and during the conversation, he asked where we lived and much to our surprise he lives IN OUR neighborhood in one of the larger houses at the Villages at Stow. 

New England is indeed a strange place!

I wore my favorite one to the meeting I attended yesterday. It says "Cemetery Cravings" and I sure was a hit. I can tell you that this man was only surprised to find out we ere neighbors. He is surprised by nothing else.
