Some of my happiest memories are of wandering around graveyards with my mom & little sister. There was a junk store in Belvedere Kansas we went to a couple of times that was neat. It only just now occurs to me that the owners are likely long dead now. I wonder what became of it. Maybe it’s still there. Under new ownership.
I took a random search on google, + found a Belvidere, Kansas -area junk/ antiques shop, named- The Trails End Junk Shop.
Here’s a web address for it: http://www.allonesearch.com/29559621/
Do you think that was the one that you went to?
P.S.- that shop might be out if business, anyhow. I like searching for things, so I thought I’d look for that shop.
I feel like that’s the right name, but it’s been almost 3 decades.
That reminded me- when I was a kid, my parents would take the family to picnics, sometimes, out on weekend days,…and they would give us a picnic in a graveyard.
I think they did that so that me + my siblings would see funerary-stuff, and graveyards, as no big deal.
Are you kidding? Graveyards (during the day) are generally quiet, peaceful, and not crowded (aboveground, that is), with lots of open, grassy areas. The perfect place for a family picnic. As long as you don’t trip over a gravestone while playing frisbee.
Heh, heh! Yeah.
It’s also a good idea to tell kids- don’t play hide + seek in the graveyard, after dark.
They could flatten their noses by running into high obelisks. :D
Sorry as usual to be That Guy, but it’s spelled “genealogy.” <3
You missed one
“Cheerfully Nihilistic” should be a D&D alignment.
It certainly is my preferred personality type. ;)
Not to be confused with “Cheerful Pessimist”.
Mind you the D&D alignment system is not cut out for such nuances. It is like trying to fit a square peg into an orange. I prefer the Paladium system of alignments since you can easily add to, or subdivide the base alignments. Mind, true neutral does equate to apathy in that system.
OH JOY! OH RAPTURE! WE ARE ON OUR MERRY WAY TO OUR HORRIBLE, AGONIZING DEATH! LA LA LA LA LA! *skips merrily*
Hee hee hee!
Or, as Calvin + Hobbes like to say: “Hooray!!…WE’RE DEAD!” :D
That reminds me, there’s an 80s hairband remix of Linkin Park’s ‘Numb’.
Remember kids, don’t forget to flaunt your jazz hands while proudly exclaiming that you are cheerfully nihilistic! :)
This feels like when someone says the movie title in the movie.
