Saturday AM, what do I want to DO today?
My thoughts were...since I only have upwards of 30 to 40,000 photos (I could do a post a day the rest of my life and not run out) I decided to take the two cameras and go to Fogartyville Cemetery and Find Della Hollingsworth Hale and Finley Hale's tombstones.
Della and Finley were my mothers grandparents.
I am sitting at a stop sign staring at the above signs and thinking,
Well, Duh! the signs say go Right OR Left, right? What if i want to go Straight? and I did... I chose Right.
......the cemetery is only a few blocks from my home and I thought this would take only a few minutes.
I have no idea WHY I can't just drive in a cemetery, find the tombstones and leave... Do YOU??
Of course I snapped the sign and then inside the fence,
the BIG view and then an hour later I drove out with 150 photos and not one single shot of my ancestors tombstones.
(need I mention I took shots of the traffic signal and the bank on the way to the cemetery?)
Here is the advice part..... If on a beautiful sunny day you decide to go find the tombstones of your great grandparents,
DO NOT take your morning water pill before you go, because GUESS WHAT?
there are NO potties in a cemetery.
I got so caught up in snapping I forgot to look for the tombstones and then it was TO LATE....
I had a decision to make!
run for home OR the nearest park, both of which are 3 minutes away, both have a potty. I chose the park with a potty, only 3 minutes away, I left the park with another 100 photos, but that will be another story.
HERE YOU GO .... I found the tombstones on the Internet...there are 2538 graves in this Historical Cemetery. Who knew I did not have to spend the morning snapping over 300 photos when all the time it was there from my chair.
