It was a beautiful day here in Tennessee today, nice Spring day. There was a tiny bit of misfortune on this Sunday drive however as our youngest has a stomach virus and couldn't go out on a drive. Mamma and her stayed home while Daddy and the oldest took on Cookeville for the Sunday drive. Now, it is sort of cheating as we all used to live right in Cookeville and we are normally travelling to Cookeville at least once per day, but it is still a beautiful Tennessee town with plenty to see. As you can see from the pictures, Cookeville has a train depot and as well as several other picturesque landmarks. While we were taking in some of the Cookeville sights we decided to make a run up toward Monterey to the Stamps Cemetery, otherwise known as the "Witches Cemetery". Legend has it that you can see pentagrams on the tombstones and that's because witches are buried there or some such thing. You can see in the pictures that there are stars carved into the tombstones, but I doubt these folks had much to do with the occult. The tombstones are very interesting though as you can see from the photos.
