Gravedigger, when you dig my grave make it shallow so I can feel the rain!

I am starting to really "wonder" about people not necessarily people I know but people in general. This is how it started
I was watching TV last night as y'all know I have 2-4 local programming that's all. Anyhoo this around town show comes on it is supposed to showcase certain things to see and do in Thunder Bay. There is this odd looking fellow on there with the host talking about Historical Cemetery tours. You apparently can go and meet up with the tour guide on Thursday nights, wear comfortable shoes and walk around the cemetery learning about past lives. Is that not the most fucked up group? Cemetery's are busy places people are dying to get in there, but tours WTF? I could see getting together and maybe watch a slide show at the library on past lives, talking about it ya know but going to stand over the top of the tombstone to chat, that's weird! Picture this..... Billy bob was a gardener, from a gardening family ,a green thumb if you will. Billy liked trees and the first tree that he planted back in 1902 grew to be a beautiful tree. It's Ironic but the tree Billy Bob planted actually was struck by lightning and fell on him, killing him in 1972, and that's why you are here looking at his tombstone today. moving along to the next stone, watch your step, This is fast sally she was a family women with family needs married to a cop named George.They raised two rubbery kids together, when sally was struck by a streetcar George and the kids were suddenly on their own. George got a job as a streetcar driver in Port Arthur till 1984 when he retired. His Kids grew up and became bus drivers. Ahhh yes folks Don't forget to come back at night when the moons just right you can see a bus parked outside the gates....
Here lies little Mikey parsons (67-75) rode his bike like the devil until the day he died. He was also hit by a bus drivin by George jr.
For our final stop of the tour we will go to the grounds keeper shack and have a question and answer period with the gravedigger.....no pictures please!
