Last Saturday I spend a little over three hours on a 10K Volkswalk through five cemeteries. We went to Colma, CA, just south of San Francisco where the dead of SF have been burried since the late 1800s, There are fabulous statues, mausoleums, stones of all sizes and shapes and monuments large and small. I would guess every nationality and ethnic group is represented, some in their own cemeteries. A lot to see. For more history google, Colma, CA and got to the city site for the history. I will have to go back because I didn't get to see the Wyatt Earp grave. (Because it was the Sabbath) He is in the Jewish cemetery because his wife was Jewish.
Today, 11/22/08, I drove through the early morning, rather heavy fog to Davis to walk the 5K Turkey Trot. I walked with some of my friends. I had to work hard to keep up with and pass my 83 year-old friend who claims not to be competitive. Jan and I crossed the finish before she did because she was distracted by talking to someone. Coffee, scones, muffins, coffee and conversation followed. This year's t-shirt is ugly.
