Pilgrimage: The final resting place of PG Wodehouse

Earlier this week, friends in the Wodehouse community were delighting over Arvind Swarup’s Pilgrimage to PG Wodehouse’s Gravestone in Remsenburg, New York. As it’s not a WordPress piece, I can’t “reblog it” here, but I urge you to have a look.

The signpost (pictured above) was loving erected by The Wodehouse Society

One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about Plumtopia is the growing sense that I’m no longer alone in the world; it has been a great pleasure to make new friends, here and elsewhere, through a shared love of Wodehouse. And when my own pilgrimage to the important Wodehouse sites is progressing more slowly than I’d like, I enjoy living vicariously through the experiences of others. Fortunately, we Wodehouse fans are an uncommonly good natured bunch, happy to share our stories in the interests of spreading sweetness and light. My thanks to Arvind Swarup for sharing his.

I am hoping to visit Remsenburg myself, on route to the 2015 Wodehouse society conference Psmith in Pseattle.
