For a time, our family volunteered to take care of one of the many plots in the historic cemetery. We "adopted" the Hatch family plot, and tried to keep the 19th century graves tidy and adorned by blossoming shrubs and flowers. After a year or so, relatives of the Hatches returned to town and asked to see to the graves themselves. Naturally, we happily stepped aside. One day, we'll find a new plot and resume the happy gardening project.
On this visit, I brought Takumashi, my 1970s Nishiki Citisport. I think he's looking just about perfect now with cork grips, a VO leather saddle and twined accessories.
