The Celebration at Miners Hill: Mondays Finish the Story

It’s funny how a spirit, or spirits, dead or alive, can still focus on what there may be to celebrate whether in death or life.

Each week Mondays Finish the Story posts a pic and an opening line to write a 150 word story about.

The Celebration at Miners Hill

The only residents remaining in the small town of Miners Hill are spirits. But no one really cares. Certainly not the residents of the town. And, especially today.

This is a special day for the residents. They celebrate who they were. The operative word being were. Because they are no longer. Ever since the mine collapsed; exploded actually, and the entire town went up in smoke.

But no one focuses on that dark episode today, or on any other day, in this town. They only focus on celebrating and honoring the extraordinary residents of this town.

So, come on. Join us in the fetivities. Time to celebrate and commemorate.
It’s Miners Hill Memorial Day.

  1. A lovely tale of a celebration of lost lives…Nicely done Randy. One minor correction, if I may…Last paragraph, the word festivities…Thank you for writing again for the challenge and I hope that you come back for the next one too! Be well… ^..^

    • yes – there are towns like these figuratively throughout the US.
      I knew a town in PA whose mine has been on fire for, I guess, about 50 years now. I think Broadway just made a musical (sadly ironical) about it. Randy

  2. I can just see them getting into the spirit of the thing. Pun intended. I don’t ususally do puns, but I couldn’t resist with this one. Well done, Randy. 😀 — Suzanne

Have some fun...
