... I went to meet a girl last evening. I must have been feeling wild... I took the KLR...I hope you don't mind...
Down Division Road...



and then Hopkins Hill Rd... this was dirt a couple of years ago,,, but chip sealed now. There's an old junction by an ancient farm....



...and I turned onto Pardon Joslin Road... pass at your own risk!



I'm going to meet Miss Mercy Brown... only 19 years old.
I rattled down the rough old road... anticipating....







...down into the hollow...







The road improves as it climbs back out... I'm getting closer now....



Miss Mercy Brown.... raven- haired... with eyes like coals....
From Pardon Joslin Rd...



A left onto Widow Sweets Rd...



...and then into the church yard....



... and down the lane....



Her Daddy was resting....



...poor man... he'd lost his wife some years before....



...and young Mary, his older daughter, too...



...and there was the grave of Miss Mercy Brown... she passed too, but not to rest.... her skin still as white, and cold, as marble....



...people leave her trinkets....

...where the family lies in the shade of an old cedar tree...



I reluctantly left... darkness is coming on... but over my shoulder, as I slowly rode away, I thought I saw.....




From the Baptist church yard, I turned down Town Hall Rd...




...hasn't been a Town Hall here for over a hundred years....



Then I rode up the turnpike a ways... dusty today with traffic....



Soon, I was home... my date with a vampire was done.....
