Valeview is a small farming community northeast of Griffinborough and due south of the Royal Honkytonk Inn. It has a small cemetery across the bridge from the main part of town that contains some interesting markers...

  • Don't ask for whom the bell tolled, it tolled for me.
- Refers to the novel "For Whom The Bell Tolls" by Ernest Hemmingway.
  • This was rather harsh for a speeding ticket.
  • "Whats the worst that could happen", he asked.
  • I wish I'd checked the wind direction before the 'bigger they are, the harder they fall' challenge.
  • Ha! - gutted by his own razor sharp wit.
  • Sorry, Ma, How was I supposed to know "step on a crack, break your mother's back" would lead to this?
  • She stopped going out because she was afraid of what might happen, so she stayed at home and died of boredom.
  • So my idea for a dragon-flamed burger restaurant didn't work out. What are you, perfect?
  • Don't make fun of dragons, you aren't big, you aren't clever & you most certainly aren't flame proof.

There are a couple of easter eggs here as well:

  • This tomb previously raided by L. Croft.
- Refers to Lara Croft of the Tomb Raider video game/movie franchise
  • There's nothing here but a weathered fedora hat, looks like that Jones fellow beat you again.
- Refers to Stephen Spielberg's Indiana Jones movie/game franchise.
  • Poor Nero, He was done in by a Wolfe.
- Nero Wolfe is a fictional New York City detective created by Rex Stout in 1934. There were 33 novels and 39 short stories written about the detective. There was also a TV series starring Maury Chaykin as Nero Wolfe on A&E.

The memorial statuary in the center of the back row of the cemetery:

"Life is hard. After all, it kills you."

- Quote from Katharine Hepburn
