One with a picture and a movie

Saturday my sister, Stehle and I went on a little adventure in East Texas.  We started out first watching the sunrise over White Rock Lake.  

Then ended up going into every cemetery we passed, 1st the Oldest Catholic Cemetery in Dallas that I went and visited with SpookyRach a while back.  Then we went to Greenwood Cemetery that is across the street - Rachel & I didn't manage to get in there as it was locked, but Stehle and I did and what an eye-opening experience.  First it was extremely well kept and loaded with veterans and interesting monuments.  I loved the streets signs.  We also visited Sand Flats Cemetery in Van Zandt County which was not kept up.  It had a pile of brush in the center that was just sad.  Behind the Sand Flats Cemetery was the Pioneer Cemetery in even worse shape.  It took us 15 minutes to pick all the sticker burrs out of our socks and shoes.  

I couldn't do the blogger slide show due to the size of the file, so I uploaded it to youtube.  Check it out.

How cool! Love the photos and the music. The names are so interesting! Harvester Givens? And the unidentified family? Wouldn't you love to know the story behind that one!

Youtube is a great idea. I couldn't post my last slide show either, but I hadn't thought of using Youtube. Now I know! Thanks!
