    1. Thank-you, sir.

      Cricket is buried on CRP land and the manager tills it every five years or so to knock back the brush. The hope is that the Maximilian Sunflower will survive the tilling and continue to mark Crickets grave.

      Cricket will be fine. They buried him 30" down.

  2. Good to have a beautiful place to go and remember Cricket. Buried my dog next to a cornfield, along a draw with trees and rocks covering her grave.
