My oldest and middle daughters used to hold their breaths as they passed this graveyard, something the oldest picked up from one of the other kids on the school bus. As they learned the lay of the land, but hadn’t quite mastered it, they inadvertently forgot to do so one day. When she lived to tell the tale, my oldest announced, we don’t have to hold our breaths anymore; nothing bad’s going to happen.
Not that I thought anything bad was going to happen, but I think I was holding my breath for quite sometime before I felt I had the lay of the land. A year later and we all breath more freely. (except when we have trash for the dump in the back of the car, which was where we were headed when I made my husband stop for these photos 😉 )
