So, today’s adventures involve… Field work! Woohoo! Admittedly we should be working on the 100 graves we have to post, but the weather is fair enough, we’re all together and hey, we’ve got all Winter, right???
I also should have posted those information posts from the other night. But we’ve been slammed. Not a little, oh wow we’re busy… But like, gee, what’s my name again? slammed.So we’ve just hit King City Cemetery, found a ton of our Diceman relatives including Aunt Elsie, and photographed a ton of things, stones included.
It really is a super nice cemetery.

As a side note, the Country Donut place in King City is closed on Holiday Monday πŸ™‚

We’re going to try to find the Mausoleum where Gran is in a niche, and then we’re going to grab some supper. We’d thought about trying to get photos of where Goldie and Gilbert Keffer are, but really, it’s 5pm already and we all know I’m an over achiever.

And what’s with the little white old church thingy on Duffrin just north of hwy 7 on the east side? There’s a Keffer in there, Jake saw it driving by, but there’s no driveway and a big fence. I didn’t wear the right shoes for climbing fences. (Mark found a google map view of that church or little building or whatever it is, we are SO going to go back to that one!)

Ohh… And to ‘ZD Dave’ in the silver Honda CRD, I really hope someone gives you a clue. You drive like an idiot and your arrogance is going to get someone hurt or worse… If it was only you – I wouldn’t care, but it’s the other people on the road with dangers like you going on. That just isn’t right.

Notes: Gran is on the second floor, in the back, at the west end, over looking the red building. We got lost πŸ™‚

Found the Thornhill Cemetery where Maria and Sarah Keffer are, but it was locked up with a padlock… I wanted to scale the fence, Jake didn’t think that was a good idea. Geez being so close burns my butt, but really, b&e for two photos probably wouldn’t make anyone happy in my family. Can we see that phone call to my Mum & Dad? Hehehe… Really though, it was a small fence! It even had sort of foot rung things.

Oh oh we found Goldie and Gib’s cemetery and we’re there now πŸ™‚ Woohoo for over achievers! No luck on finding them though, there’s a millon people in here and they’re all flat plaques, there’s no hope on that front! We’ll come back a day the office is open πŸ™‚ Yay for finding it though!

That’s enough insanity for today. Tomorrow it can start alllll over again.
