  1. Love it! I need more trips to cemeteries.

  2. I can't wait for the snow to be gone and nice weather again so I can do more searching for headstones. I have an aunt buried here in town and I am just waiting for nice weather to go get a photo.

  3. Alice,

    It appears you have a nice machine to get there on, when the weather cooperates!
