Things That Make Me Say....

It was time to go through my camera's memory card and clear a few photos off of it. I found quite a few pictures of food I had cooked and have not posted. Some of the dishes I don't even remember what they were.


I found a few random photos, I hope you don't mind me sharing with you.










First up is this house in Metairie, Louisiana. It is located on Ridgeway Drive near Lake Pontchartrain. The story goes that a doctor lives here. While the house was under construction, the doctor was having wild dreams at night. He would wake up write down his dreams and relay the dreams to his architect the next day. This house is the result of his wild dreams. I have more pictures of this house which incorporates just about every architectural style imaginable. I can't believe his wife did not divorce him during construction. What the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks.






The homegirlz like to shoot random pictures like this. They giggle when I find their handiwork and say things like what the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks! Shouldn't it be "You're weird"? What do they do in those BETA Club meetings anyway? Thank you Sevier County for learnin' my chirrens stuff....sheesh!







This is why my camera is usually with me. No this is not Photo Shopped. Can you believe this? I couldn't, that's why I snapped about five pictures. Dateline Sunday, January 4, 2009, 1:50 PM. This cemetery is two blocks from my house. I had a couple of errands to run and saw this abandoned coffin at the gate of the cemetery, next to an open grave. No flowers, no nothing. On my way to take my Mother to the airport the next morning, the coffin was still unmoved. By 1:00 PM Monday, January 5, 2009, still unburied. When I arrived home from work on January 5th around 4:00 PM, the coffin was finally buried. I have to say it, "What the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks!".

Hi Katherine,

Loving your blog! Are you sure that the coffin isn't actually a vault? Vaults look a lot like coffins and they are usually delivered when the order to dig the grave is made and then put into place at burial. The coffins go in the vaults to help keep them from the elements. Being an East Tennessee native that is what I have seen at most all funerals around here; including my dear family members.

Have a great weekend!

This would be a good time to dispose of any bodies you have laying around...
Fun photos!

"Your weird". Where did you leave it? I can't find my weird, either. I love strange stories like the one behind the house. And I guess Vanessa's vault explanation makes some sense, but it's still strange! Happy Friday!

Great photos & funny post. It's pretty creepy the coffin was left out like that. I wonder what the deceased persons family would think.

Thanks for sharing!! Loved the odd house!! That is very alarming about the coffin. I do know that they seal them somehow so it's quite hard to get them open. But still! The poor person, how disrespectful of the cemetery. I have tons of food pictures never posted. I always think I can use them if I get in a pinch!

Awww! Thanks for the compliment! :)

The coffin is freaking me out....but that "Dream" house is cool!

Sara said...

Andrea said...

Loved all three photos and stories!

I used to live in Orange Texas. There is a sign on the fence of the city cemetary that says "NO DUMPING". Maybe they need to put one on your cemetary too.

Debbie said...

Whew that coffin just gives me the creeps..and I'm the person that loves horror movies!!!! Very sad too....wonder who the heck was in that thing and where their family is????

I'll have to come back when I have a bit more time to read more. Interesting world here. I love both the Smokey mountains and coffee! I'm going to get my first one now! I lived in the south for a year in the 90's and maybe a couple of months when I was younger if you add it all up together. My father was from Tennessee, so we spent time in the Smoky Mountains when we were growing up. Beautiful country!
