Graveyard















Decades before a graveyard stood,
Welcoming the dead and mourning relatives.



Now for sale.

  1. Interesting stages ... from graveyard to church to sale with a very ironic for sale sign! A sign from the dead I believe?

  2. That was enjoyable and clever. "Fertile Soil" LOL. Don't think I'd like to buy that land!

  7. Guys I am really sorry. Had mistaken that for 140words. Horrible mistake indeed. Now edited that to less than 140 characters(including the advertisement)

  10. I wonder who would buy land that was once a graveyard--maybe someone with a thick skin and who isn't superstitious.

  11. Sorry I missed that one Sparkle farkle(she made me laugh)

    and creepy

  12. Hmmm. I am just the type to buy it anyway. I know its a crumbling mess, but I find this place reather beautiful even if a bit too worn in.

  13. Just funning with ya, swputh, just funning with ya. LOL! I'm not good with numbers either. In fact, I have a panic attack with the mere thought of balancing my checkbook. For that reason alone (and a few others), I wouldn't dare think of playing Sudoku. It most likely would leave me comatose.

    P.S. I hope I didn't scare you away. That truly was not my intention. See you next Monday? It's a date!

    Enjoyed this.

  15. You've made me want to buy it... somehow the house now looks like the last sad puppy at the pet shop.
    Lovely mood in such a few words!

  19. Nice one, SW. We have Texas laws against ever using a graveyard for any other purpose unless all the body remnants have been relocated. It would be a tough sale here!
    Sorry I'm so late in getting back here, my week was very busy and hectic.
