Salem



Salem Community Church




Salem cemetery



Religious figurine--reading, "Blessed are the
pure in heart, for they shall know
God"--leaning against a gra--



Salem outhouse


Oh, well.

How did they test for purity/witchery
at the real Salem again?

If I remember right, it had something to
do with sinkers and floaters . . .


(Oh, God, I'm going to burn
for this, aren't I?)

Wicked, wicked Sarah. I love it!

Ha!!! Did you take those photos in Salem?

If the "witch" weighs the same as a duck, which floats, then she's made of wood (which also burns), so she's a witch! Well, according to Monty Python anyway....

Jaye, thanks! I aim to please. ;)

Aine, it's a tiny little Salem in Ohio. Stoplight? No. Cemetery outhouse? Definitely. :)

Monty Python always makes sense to me...

I took a tour of Salem once many years ago when I was at a conference in Boston. I believe I saw this church.

What's that old saying about people who think their sh--, um, I mean, excrement, doesn't stink? I guess that statue might be a reminder for those with heavenly aspirations.

Reverend, get me an air freshener.

Charles, I've been to Salem, too. Years ago. But this little church is in Ohio. No witches, but maybe some ghosts.

Jason, the outhouse had an empty roll of toilet paper. I guess the dead don't need to wipe. ;)

I did enjoy visiting this small cemetery. But I couldn't let that incongruity pass me by! Man, where my mind wanders sometimes...

Sinkers as sinners... Hmmm...

I love the austerity of the photos.
