rival chapel? egads.


Just across the street from the Speers Funeral Chapel, another funeral chapel is going up. Is Speers quaking in its morto-boots? Do they fear the encroachment of another corpse sanctifier? Maybe they're worried - and rightfully so - that the new chapel will steal their embalming fluid. Or perhaps they're sharing. I'm sure morticians can be quite civilized.

meant to photograph the
Harborside Masoleum for you yesterday while on my walk.
It is next to the railroad tracks.
Alas, I left the camera on the table in the living room - the long black one with the Hermes typewriter on it and the old green Tonka truck under it.

That would've been cool.

We've taken a poll and established what's really going on here. It's no longer a funeral home - some well-to-do is turning it into a hotel or something. True story.

A hotel? Built on the spot where the newly dead have been embalmed and whatnot? That can't end well.
