A beautiful weekend here highs in the 60's andlows in the 40's perfect!!
So today the girlz and I went for a drive in search of a grave!...WELL It is Halloween a time when we recognize the dead...
I go to graveyards--- a lot ----as Ive blogged before I am a volunteer photographer for the Find a Grave Website..it helps families find ancestors and ties up loose ends and it really helps with genealogy research..
SO this is the stone I was in search of today..its like geocaching with a twist...
Its pretty hard to read but he was born in 1826 and passed away in 1900...so this grave was hand dug and he was probably brought here by a horse drawn hearse!
Kinda morbid---I don't know-- visiting these cemeteries has helped me to understand life and death better...especially with families laying in rest around each other...and yes they are dead but SOMEONE is alive due to their having lived and they have moved on to make room for those that they have left behind...doesn't that make it feel better when you think of it that way?
SO anyways its HALLOWEEN weekend, I didn't buy any of that delicious p-nut butter candy that I love so much instead I bought yogurt covered raisins--although I did have my eye on a Honey Bun at the 7-11.
The girlz and I saw these rolls and Ive never seen this before...or just never realized...this is not hay....its fodder---or rolled up corn shock.
Used for animal feed...and look at this brand new calf---how cute he is..I watched him stagger to his feet, he was aware of me, but it was too hard for him to turn around and watch me...so he gave me this sweet backwards glance.
Here is more of the family--
There is history everywhere around this area...
