Doesn’t that look delicious? A couple of weeks back mom/dad were craving pizza which is unusual. Well not for dad. He’s always craving pizza of any sort. But mom, she never craves pizza. So when she does, dad takes full advantage of the situation. So today I’m going to let daddy finish this Travels with the South.
When the wifey craves pizza, I know exactly where to head to make us both happy. There is a local pizza joint that has stuffed crust pizza. The wife loves stuffed crust – all of that extra cheese in the crust of the pizza. It somehow makes eating pizza seem so much more of a delightful experience. This day I even went one step further for my honey. This pizza place also offers seasoned crusts. So today I got stuffed crust with a pretzel crust. Can you say yum because that’s exactly what we both said… almost at the same time.
And we know that I’m a meat eater so I added my favorite toppings: pepperoni, italian sausage, ham, bacon, beef and black olives. I have to admit that this pizza came out amazing! Even the waitstaff was drooling.

My Aunt Tina lives in Chicago, Illinois. She’s helping me out today with my 31 Days of Spook. Recently she visited Mount Carmel Cemetery right there in Chicago. What? Don’t you visit cemeteries during your down time? I’ve heard they can be very relaxing and an educational experience. Let’s take these for pictures for instance that my Aunt Tina took and shared with me.
It’s a beautiful grave site. Of course there are lots of beautiful headstones and memorials in this cemetery but this one is different. Let me introduce you to Julia Buccola Petta.
Julia Buccola Petta died at age 29 while giving birth to her stillborn son, Filippo. Julia was buried in her wedding dress and given the nickname of The Italian Bride. According to legend, Julia’s mother Filomena began having dreams in which Julia was telling her that she was still alive.
Years after her death, Filomena received permission to have the grave opened and her daughter exhumed. Her mother then took a picture of Julia in her casket which was then placed on the monument.
The picture is still there on her grave at the Mount Carmel Cemetery in Chicago, Illinois. Do you notice anything in the picture?
After years of being buried, Julia looks – how shall we say it? – still together if you catch my drift.
