There was nothing wrong with your cemetery clearing post on the General Forum and you did receive good answers. A few of the *many* follow-up messages, although somewhat off topic, were quite funny. I'm sorry that you misunderstood the intent, as my reply on this forum was intended to be humorous given the number of off-topic messages. I just failed to include a :-).
By the way, when I was growing up in the country the yearly activity of clearing cemeteries and placing flowers waa called "Decoration Day." It usually occurred on or about April 26 which was Confederate Memorial Day in some southern states. My Dad always carried a large stick to whack any snake that showed up and also to get the attention of his unruly kids.
