I would assume their burial place is in the cemetery- perhaps even the one Obor Mottel and his wife visit to relax...

As for the question about tehillimzugging [if you're allowed to quote yourself, I'd assume you're allowed to answer your own questions...]:
In "The Harp" page 104 Meir Uri Gottesman
He greeted Aharon, who met him near the entrance. “Our teacher Rabbi Tzaddok will give a shiur today,” he announced happily. ־It will be on a very difficult subject, machshavah pesulah — forbidden intent during the altar saciifices — and we must prepare carefully.”

Avigdor, Aharon’s study partner, was already in his place, twirling his thumb and murmuring. Aharon and Yoseph could see him from afar. Watching him, Yoseph could not contain his feelings.

“I don’t think Avigdor cares for me much,” he confided in Aharon. “He not only doesn’t say a shalom aleichem, he also doesn’t even turn in my direction.” He shook his head in vexation and began walking towards their place.

Aharon grabbed him abruptly by the sleeve and held him back. “Yoseph, don’t be so quick to criticize Avigdor.”

“I’m not criticizing, but how hard is it to say a shalom aleichem?”

“Would you believe, Yoseph, that my brother Avigdor is locked in a great battle with himself? His Torah is his only weapon against his own impulses, against his yetzer hara. Only with Torah can he keep himself pure. Believe me, he is a kind person, and he is proud of you — but he is caught in a battle.”

“I don’t understand. What kind of battle? Why is he different from you or me?”

“Levite, do you not sing the Psalms? Some start with the word mizmor, some start with shir, and some start with laminatzeiach — a song of victory! Let him be who he is, as you are who you are!”


Is Avigdor related to Avigdor Ehrenreich?

he only lived about two thousand years earlier but it's a good point. one second they were both big masmidim. but that's where the similarities end i think- maybe i should look into it.

by the way the reason his name was ehrenreich- he was reich in ehre- in respect. he was the most respected bachur- v'tzarich iyun oid l'eis hapnai.

ואולי נוכל לומר עוד בזה and the litvacks won't like this
דמבואר בגמרא דבן עשרים ולא נשא אשה כל ימיו בהרהור עבירה- ואביגדור עהרענרייך הלא היה בן ל"ב שנים (ספר אילת השחר- מארנינג סטאר- עמוד פג) נמצא דהיה לוחם נגד אלו המחשבות כל ימיו דומיא דאביגדור בספר הכינור [טהע הארפ]. ודו"ק בכל זה

David thought his heart was going to break, What did they want from him? why couldn't he just be "reb dovid from toronto"? instead they were putting his name on billboards advertising in the paper, he had never wanted this. all he wanted was to be a good jew and live simply.
"brrring", there it went again- the phone didn't stop ringing with reporters desperate to interview the man that had rescued toronto from the band of marauding possums! So reb klonymous said it was his torah, since when do reporters believe in torah anyway, but it was all from hashem, do we know why? we can't know why, nor may we ask. Reb dovid tightened his tie, and went out to the press conference

ANGEL STAR STRIKES AGAIN!!!

just saw this headline:

Plane dented at 26,000 feet in mystery incident
An image of an Air China plane that was forced to make an emergency landing shows a large dent in the aircraft’s nose, reportedly sustained high in the sky. With no evidence of a bird strike, experts are trying to figure out the cause.
