Castle's In Florida?




The original post title was  Drive By Shooting at Local Cemetery.... BUT I was afraid the cyber police might come looking for me.

Why would  MadSnapper take a photo of the entrance to a cemetery?

BECAUSE MS was sitting at the stop light traffic signal (which do you say), THERE IT WAS. Right outside my window. SNAP!
Manasota was built in 1925 and my grandfather shares this cemetery with John Ringling and 7 of the Flying Wallendas, from Ringling Brothers Circus.

Medical Staff..........a doctor's cane
Hangnail...... coat hook
Nitrates....................cheaper than day rates.

Sandra, you crack me up. Love your definitions.
That is quite an imposing entrance to the cemetery.
Quite fascinating though.

I like that, beautiful entrance. And it does look a bit Spanish, as Ginny says. Happy Friday my friend.

It is a grand entrance for a cemetery. Was your grandfather in the circus?

SquirrelQueen said...

That is a very impressive entrance to the cemetery. I have to agree with Goose on your original title except LOL!

Elvis' cousin Pelvis....too funny!

Still giggling about the medical terms!

That's interesting to know about the Wallenda's. I vividly remember when the one Wallenda walked across Tallulah Gorge.

What a wonderful gate entrance! We have so many cool things to photograph here in Florida! I wish the weather would get better so I could get out with the camera. Foggy and chilly here this morning.

It's very Southwestern looking.

Remington said...

When a Photo Op presents itself, it is against "A Rule," to not take it!!!

You know... One of those Rules about being in love with one's camera and being a mad snapper and etc. -grin-

The cemetery entrance is impressive. Yes, a bit like a castle. :)

Linda said...

This entrance looks very Spanish. As usual I had to go and check out about the Flying Wallendas and it made me think of the times I went to see acrobats at the circus - something that never happens these days.

Phew - might be a bad day to name your post drive by shootings. Such a sad day for Connecticut.

Your drive by shootings are so much prettier than mine.

In light of what is happening it was good you chose a different title.
