Welcome to week #18 of Taphophile Tragics on this blog!  I appreciate everyone’s support for this meme — and I’m going to do my best to keep this up as a weekly meme.  🙂    My list of links appears on a separate page — I’m sorry, but until I bite the bullet and upgrade to the pay version of WordPress (which, right now, I’m debating), this is how the Linky works.  I have looked at other linky programs, and none of them seem to work seamlessly with the free version of WordPress.

Florence S Croce marker detail 2.jpg
I took this photo on my trip to Italy in May of 2011, in the Basilica of Santa Croce, in Florence, Italy.   Unfortunately, I’m not able to figure a great translation of what the marker says, although it apparently the third sentence has something to do with “the tom of his grandfather” and the year appears to be 619.   Either way, I found the details in it to be very striking.   Considering the potential age of the marker, it is is very good condition.


I am following the same rules for this meme that Julie had set up, and have all the information on my page for Taphophile Tragics.   Please include some details of the cemetery in which you took your photographs, and link directly to your post, rather than simply to your blog in general.   I enjoy hosting, and seeing everyone’s posts!  If you have any questions or comments about my hosting (or anything else), please leave a comment or send me an email (Liquidityoftime @ gmail dot com)
