On nice days like this Sunday, we visit cemeteries. There are always remarkable gravestones to be found, and yesterday we hit the jackpot.

Literally.



"Normington Family Tree" is emblazoned across the top. The left hand real reads "Virgil" at top and "Margaret" at bottom, with a ragtop t-bird between them. The three righthand reels enumerate the Virgil and Margaret's birthdates; the car gets three lucky 7s.

Nine coins spill out the bottom, engraved with names and birthdates:

Dale 8-8-44
Judith 12-8-45
Timothy 2-10-47
Victoria 3-21-49
Virgil Jr 11-14-52
Phillip 7-4-54
Marlene 10-6-55
Donald 10-14-62
Marcia 5-3-67
David 1-18-67

Marcia & David aren't twins, so perhaps these names speak of blended family?

Wowzers!

"On nice days like this Sunday, we visit cemeteries."

Everyone needs a hobby I guess.

Wow, that's quite something.

It's not a regular thing for me, but I do hit up a cemetery occasionally ... usually when I'm out of town and there's one of particular interest nearby.

It's nice to have a sense of humor about your ultimate demise! Not sure that's the motif I would've chosen, but then, I personally plan to be cremated and turned into a diamond. (And then I want that diamond dropped into the ocean, to be washed ashore in some later era.)
