Was reminded today of an old review of an animal cemetery.. so reprinted here today for your perusal and/or enjoyment!!
How do you begin to write about a mule cemetery? Well of course you have to show the proper amount of reverence. ..There can be no dumb-ass jokes or stubborn obstinence with regard to the subject matter. So I guess I will just tell you that such a place does exist and it’s located on the Nelson Pioneer Museum grounds near Oskaloosa.My host assured me that were indeed mule remains buried here so who was I to argue!!It seems that these mules were almost considered Civil War heroes as both had helped to pull Union artillery guns during the conflict.They also were pure white and branded with “US”on their hips thus making the Nelson farm a Sunday afternoon buggy ride destination for the residents of Oskaloosa.Apparently DirectTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket was not available in the local area!!
