My Sis and I have had so much fun!! Just being together is enough but to get to do something we both really enjoy doing is the icing on the cake. I've mentioned before how we do volunteer photos for Find a Grave the website that has keeps records of where people are buried..So my sis researched where a number of photo requests were awaiting fulfillment and she found one in Spencer, TN! Just so happens to be the town where I was birthed..we stopped at 3 cemeteries to be exact...passed this lovely old almost gone barn, oh I'd love to have this wood!
this is the cemetery where we spent most of the day Spencer Town Cemetery. It was humid and hot! But we managed with plenty of water to FIND and photograph 40 headstone photos that had been requested...so now family that lives far away can see the headstone of their loved ones!!
Here is my Big Sis...she is 5 yrs my senior, she is getting organized to start hinting up these tombstones! Thats her Jeep since Im heading north and she is heading back to SC we came in separate cars..Casey is in the back chilling in the shade while we go tombstoning!
My sis is very meticulous she had 5 sheets of names to hunt for we used the binoculars to scan the cemetery which helps save some time, but in the end its all leg work. We found all but 5 of the ones requested...
My job was to help look and snap the photos as she left the chip out of her camera by accident!
We stopped for lunch halfway through, joined Casey in the shade gave him a walk about then back at
it! Mission accomplished she is uploading to Find a Grave as I type this.
then we left there and hit the last one...it was pretty old...we had 8 tombstones to find and photo...we found all 8 and it began to rain on us right as we headed back to the car!
on the way back saw another interesting barn....this one with a Quilt Block! I must create a block for my shed once it gets refurbished!
this pattern reminds me of a windmill.
One headstone was very important to me...this was a lady Dr and she is the DR who brought me into the world, Rest In Peace Dr. Rhinehart.
Monday Sis heads back to SC and I am heading in the direction of Kentucky! I might
'aught peel the Anti-Trump sticker off my bumper but I think I'll just grin and keep on making tracks!
Wish me luck! I sure am going to miss my sis it was the most fantastic 3 days!!
