Traveling Raconteur

Hola! Hope you're smiling :)

Friends from the Arthuret

now1While walking around the graveyard in the Arthuret, Longtown, I tried to look at every grave, read names and the epitaphs. The ones below – which I believe are of a husband and wife, touched me the most. The next time I visit the graveyard, I know whose graves to look for and stop by to say hello.

Mary Baty. Died 1821 at age 51.

“I was so long with pain oppressed which wore my strength away. It made me long for endless rest which can never decay.”

Benjamin Baty. Died 1907 at age 77.

“Blessed are they that have not seen and yet believed.”

Big Jim seems like a very nice man and like me, loved this town.

Fighting An Additction

Not One MoreSeptember 12th, 2014
Addiction is a curse one allows upon one's self until it ceases to seek permission. I do not like the idea of a mind controlled by substance. If I can refrain for 30 days, I'd be very impressed with myself.
