A Tale in Every (Tomb)stone

Spooky tombstone by Dmitri. No, it isn't Halloween already. Your Editor spotted this tombstone nesting beneath the gnarled trees close to the farm on Easter Sunday. The person buried there was an upright citizen of the 19th Century, a founder in the community, if you will. May his rest be sweet.

But you know, there are all sorts buried in your neighbourhood: the good, the bad, the colourful. Find out about them. Write them up for us. And do like me: take a picture for posterity. Posterity will thank you.

Welcome to the profusely illustrated issue of the h2g2 Post. Looking at the photo list, I couldn't believe I'd loaded that many images. There's a lot to admire and enjoy this week:

Willem brings us a beautiful bird and plant (don't you wish you had them?).

Gnomon shows us around Istanbul (don't you wish you were there?).

Cactuscafe reports in from Bodinnick (did you have to look it up?).

Awix raves about some guy named Jason (ever heard of him?).

Florida Sailor and Minorvogonpoet tell us all about it in 42 Words (don't these make you chuckle?).

Anthea's famous Duck is back, with his (?) head in the stars (don't you love him?).

So read, enjoy, leave kudos and snark. Think about what you're going to write next.

And have a good week, everybody!
