yep, I have a thing for cemeteries

I went to Los Gatos Memorial Park today. This is half of the gate leading to the Jewish part of the cemetery. It has half of a star of David on it.
This is a row of military graves. Military tombstones are always shaped like that, rectangular with rounded tops. Sometimes they are placed together in rows. Sometimes they will appear mixed in with other tombstones. Those graves, the military ones mixed in with the civilian ones, remind me of how war is always present in the US, and in American families.
Look, someone left a beer for that guy. Sam Adams too. The good stuff.
