The Greatest Piece of Graveyard Trash Literature!

I cannot believe it has taken me so long to post this incredible photo.  If you read this blog, you know that I have become an unofficial caretaker of the grounds around the Patterson Family Cemetery plot.  I’ve never been inside it’s stone and wrought iron walls but I do pick up around it.

Last fall, I was cleaning the property and quite literally was collecting a few bags worth of trash.  While doing so, I found this soggy, damaged book;Image

Isn’t this great?!  Why do Kenyan Farmers need to be introduced to Ostriches?  What about Estonian Farmers?!  How do the Ostriches feel about it?  And how in the world does this book end up on the ground around an unloved urban graveyard for kinda famous people??

Writing this blog entry has inspired two new fun things.  1st, Introducing Ostriches is a great name for a band.  2nd, I’ve created a new literary genre. ‘Graveyard Trash Literature’

More reasons to love Baltimore.

  1. Introducing Ostriches. Interesting! More Graveyard Trash Literature, please. Did you read the book?! T.

    • It was so messed up that reading it wasn’t really an option. What I was able to discern was something like this; “Ostriches are birds. They might be good on a farm.” Real scintillating stuff.
