Time to clean up Boot Hill.
Landlady has big plans for Boot Hill, the place we all plan to end up – many, many years from now. In the meantime it’s filling up with pets. But in the fullness of time there will be a real fence like a proper cemetery, and so right as markers go in we’re trying to establish a little order. Plus this is the high desert, and lots of wind and heat and cold and UV mean everything needs at least a little maintenance from time to time.
Speaking as the person statistically most likely to be the second human buried there – many, many years from now – I can think of worse places to end up.
