I headed straight over after dropping the kids off at school. It was good to be in a solitary, quiet place after getting 3 children ready for school. I might recommend it for general stay-at-home parent therapy but I'm afraid our cemeteries would be overrun with joyous parents ;)
Today's walk/photo session got me thinking about the many lessons I've learned from several years of doing this. I'll dwell on that more for a Family History Daily post. The most immediate lesson from today was: avoid the ant piles! Usually I will try to carefully pull weeds, grass, leaves, etc. away from the stones before taking the photo. But I will not "brush away" an ant pile for anyone's relative (even mine own!)
The second, a "small" ant pile example. Really. This is not one of the largest ant piles I've seen at all. And while I'm sure I can find out Mr. Mancuso's relevant birth and death dates in documentation, the photo evidence will just have to wait.
Happy tombstone hunting all!
