That is a very good picture at 50 mph, Rita! Please tell me you weren't driving the bike!  :SmileyFear:  :laugh1:

Edit: Oh, I just saw you were riding on the back. Need to pay attention, don't I?  :Halo:

It doesn't look like you need a new camera. That's a pretty good picture.

I bet there are some old graves in there.  That's the kind we would like to find around here and get out some afternoon and walk it.  I enjoy reading the tombstones and of course if you can stay until it gets dark, depending if it has posted hours or not, well then the possibilities are endless.

Notice how thin the tombstones are?  That is a good indicator of some old sites.  The stones are so much thicker today.

Mine is a Olympus 5.0 mp. Yours takes better pictures! I can't believe you got such good shots on the back of a bike doing 50 mph. That is a goooooood camera. I don't think mine will do that!

We tried to take a pic of my spider plants babies this evening and they were so fuzzy you couldn't see what they were. I deleted them off of my camera... ::)

I want a 10 mp, too!

 :tapfoot1: Where is the "phooey" graemlin when we need him in the cemetery?  :laugh1:

Seriously, though, I would love to wander around that cemetery and do some rubbings...

I hit MapQuest and after I saw the distance figured an outing there was out.  Over 900 miles, 15 plus hours driving time.  Getting Dianna on a plane is out of the question.  :smile:

I would love to go there, too. My first priority would probably be meeting you, though, if we got that close!  :grinnnn:

How far is Salem away from you? That is probably where we would stay (dreaming, of course). I would love to visit that area, though. Of course you would be going on the investigations with us. Right? You would hold my hand while I was shivering in my sneakers?  :unsure: We can't all be scared!  :laughmao:

If you are doing the sedating...Natural Light, Michelob Light, or Bud Light works. :rofl1: And, there is always the heavy-duty stuff. Margaritas or Pina Coladas. You may keep your gin to yourself!  :laughpound:

Wouldn't we have fun, though? Maybe one day...

 :thx: Christy.. I have a great action setting on my camera. even though I forget to take it with me most of the time.

There are alot of really really old cemetaries around here.. It is just finding the ones that are open to the public or the ones that don't have a 10 foot fence up .. then there are others that don't have a road or anywhere to pull off to take a look.

That is a great pic for 50ph. Theres a very old abandoned cemetery near my house (about 1 mile)  I really have to go for a hike (read this as walk up a hill) and get a pic. Went there years ago with an xbf and his kids and did rubbings. It was very cool. Not a huge graveyard. Some of the caskets have caved in. before I ever was there, there used to be a cchilds headstone with a rose imbedded in glass in it. Someone stole the rose! :yikes:

If you two drive to Ritas you best make a pit stop in NY on the way!
