Bio Photo Retired old curmudgeon, sharing space with numerous cats, books, prints, broken furniture and other detritus of 19th and 20th century life.

I've always enjoyed the peace and serenity in old cemeteries. When I was small, my gg-grandmother, g-grandmother, grandmother & mother would pack a picnic lunch, usually on Easter sunday and the whole family would visit our ancestors in Forest Park cemetery. Afterwards I would feed stale bread to the ducks and we would eat lunch by the lake in the middle of the cemetery, under the spreading branches of the old oak trees.

I discovered some old photos while going through a recently-deceased relative's possessions. Among the collection were several photos of five generations of my ancestors, seventy years ago, dressed in their Sunday finery, with my gg-grandmother holding me in her lap, the first-born of the next generation, with the cemetery lake in the background. What a find!

I go when duty calls - rain, sleet, or snow does not deter me when I'm on a mission! LOL. Hope you're doing well, take care.

Thank you for asking; but I'm not sure I'd want to have it transferred to me as I usually don't get on that website too much. I really appreciate all everyone does in keeping information available and updated. Thank you again.
