Thinking on Thursday

It's Thursday, and I was thinking; sure has been a long time since I've gotten to get out and tromp around a good cemetery, to see and feel the history, the beauty of the old stones; enjoy the nicer weather and wonder about the stories behind all the stones. Too long.

Anyone want to come with me?

Seriously, anyone enjoy the peacefulness in the cemetery? Share your thoughts on my picture.

  1. Hi Sandy,

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. I, like you, have only one child. I lived in OH for a while, too. I do like cemetaries. They used to creep me out when I was younger. But now I find that the history represented in a cemetary facinates me. I like to imagine what life would have been like when some of the people buried there were alive. Looking forward to getting to know you.

  2. You have selected a cemetery with some great gravestones. But I am not into visiting but love to look.

  3. If it is warm out- or Fall I am game. But I find it kind of dreary when it is really cold and damp. Cemeteries here in Wisconsin don't creep me out. I have been to some very old ones in the North East that were really creepy... but what trumps them in terms of creepiness is when you are hiking in Colorado in you run into an old abandoned settlement graveyard. Those are kind of spooky and sad in a way. Lots of infants and children lost to sickness.

  4. Sandy, you must look at this link

    This cemetary is about 30 miles from me and is a tourist attraction with busloads of people who come. It's beautiful!!! I'm into geneology so going to cemetaries is common for me.

  5. Joansie, thanks for the link. I enjoyed looking around there. Wow....I thought in my tromps I'd seen some interesting stones, but these are really incredible.

  6. Hi Sandy,

    Whenever I think of cemetaries, I think of my mom 'cos she loves to scour through them looking for the oldest stones/dates. We had fun in Durham, CT cemeteries looking at some of the Revolutionary War stones - it was cool.

  7. I think a cemetary is fun to walk around in, too! But just during the day for me... lol

  8. When I was younger, my Dad and I would go to cemeteries and look at the old ones. There is one I'd love to walk thru not too far from me in Harper's Ferry, WV. But it's on top of a hill and it's a big hike to the top. I'm kind outta shape! hahaha But it would be really interesting there with all the history there from the war. Wait up for me and I'll go!!!

  9. Hi Sandy, thanks for visiting my blog. I used to like to go through old cemeteries. It makes you wonder about the lives of the people who are interred there. It's not something I've thought about in a long time. The photo is really lovely.

  11. I'd love to come along, just let me grab my camera!

    It's one of the things I enjoy doing in the early spring or late fall, as our summers are pretty miserable (hot & humid). My husband, though maybe not as fascinated as I, always seems to enjoy the trek, too.

    There are a lot of really old cemeteries scattered around our county, and we usually make an afternoon of it when we go 'cemetery hopping'. We fantasize about the lives of the people who are buried there, grieving a little when we find an entire family that was buried within days or weeks of each other, figuring it was likely a devestating illness.

  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog! My workstudy is actually at a print-shop, but my boss gives me sewing work on the side for extra money. I hem pants, sew buttons and all kinds of stuff. I'd kill to have it as my real job. My mother was a seamstress so she gives me tips, but I am basically self taught. Thanks again for leaving me a comment!
