Behind my house on the Rebel Drive cul-de-sac is an old graveyard of several acres. Its ownership is unclear. Since our one neighbor who owns a bushhog has moved to Madison, the graveyard is returning to the woods it used to be when we first moved in 13 years ago.
As I write this, my weather app tells me the heat index is 110 degrees. These are the dog days of summer.
If Mississippi in the summer feels like the hottest place on earth, you would be very close to being right.
