Scott v. the Saint

The street that leads to the City of Lubbock cemetery passes by Scott’s Temple; behind Scott, the St. John Baptist Church looms large. It’s like some kind of theological showdown is about to happen.

I am somewhat relieved to report that, on the same street, the house where the World’s Most Ferocious Dog used to fling itself against the chain link fence every time a car passed by is now vacant. I can only assume that the dog is somehow responsible. That dog scared the bejesus out of me and I was inside my car. But anyway, I wonder what unsuspecting people in funeral processions felt about that awful omen as they turned into the cemetery to lay their loved one to rest…
