I’m diggin’ up bones, I’m diggin’ up bones
Exhuming things thats better left alone
I’m resurrecting memories of a love that’s dead and gone
Yeah tonight I’m sittin’ alone diggin’ up bones
Vastly different from Randy Travis’ popular “Diggin Up Bones,” was the scene in our back yard during the last rainy day…
Walking by the kitchen window we looked and saw the rear view of our once-white poodle, Lexi—now almost black—with mud flying in earnest between her back legs. We went outside and discovered that she’d started to uncover a previously buried bone. We left her to her treasure.
Several hours later there’s a reverse performance. Having licked the bone clean, she’s now bent on re-burying it—this time by the railroad tie. Perhaps a better landmark?
When was the last time you dug up bones, or as Randy Travis would say, “exhumed things better left alone?”
“Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing.”
