Golgotha Gathering

We've probably all been to a few blogmeets, and read about even more. They are usually held in fairly sane places. Usually. But I think we've yet to read about bloggers meeting in a cemetery. Well, until now.

I went out to the cemetery that I mentioned below, and there I met Raging Mom. However, this wasn't a drunken meet, which are usually the best ones to attend. Nope, this was just two bloggers crawling up the hill to a little cemetery to look around. We visited for awhile, and then had to head off on our seperate ways. Not really much of a blogmeet, but it was very interesting. She's a very cool woman.

We did not locate the grave of a little girl, but then again, only about six or seven stones were left there. We did notice that someone had been up there and spraypainted the backs of three stones. The backs were facing the road, and they were spraypainted a dull black. My initial thought was that vandals had been up there. As we parted ways, I realized that it was only the backs of the stones, not the faces. They had been painted to dull them.

So I went back out in the dark, and sure enough, even though they had been dulled down, one stone glowed bright. Bright like the back of a metal sign. Even under the paint. I tried to take a pic, but I only had Tammi's cell phone... it didn't come out. I may go back and get a good shot.

Not frightening at all, it was a bit eerie. One second, there's nothing in front of you but pastures and lonely road. The next, there's a glowing object on a hillside. At first, it looks like it's just floating there, then you see the trees and shape of the hill. Very cool.

I'm looking forward to more meets this month, and maybe a few more adventures like this. I'll keep ya posted.

A Blogmeet in a cemetary...not that far fetched.

We went out there last night, but none of my pictures turned out either. At least Sarge saw it too and thought it pretty weird. Wouldn't you love to get out there with some paint remover?

We also made a run down Devil's Backbone Road. Another story in the works.....
