Pipkin Park


Today is one of five days that the Pipkin Temple of the Brave is open each year. Dedicated in 1919 with memorabilia of World War One, it now contains items from many wars. Of interest is a grave of a Civil War soldier who was nearly 109 years old when he died. I’m not clear as to which side he was on–I suspect Confederate as he was mustered in from Louisiana.

Although I have lived here for many years, I had never been inside–as was the experience of most of the people who all stood in line waiting patiently for our turn to walk through the displays. Unfortunately the lighting was not very good so it was difficult to see –plus you knew there were a lot of people waiitng for their turn.

Home to a large garden salad from my garden–fresh cherry tomatoes and some bits of lettuce. I still have the green beans–runner beans I think–but then they might be navy beans–I just don’t remember what I planted.
