I had a very good day, but I'm tired.
We had to go to LA, today, to take care of some things. I wish I could share everything, but I can't...so, instead I'll share that we went to Westwood Cemetery and roamed for a bit. It was just what I needed to get some sort of perspective on Aaron's death and my own health issues. We saw the following graves:
Heather O'Rourke (little girl in Poltergeist)
Marilyn Monroe (someone had hung their silk boxers over her flower holder...who does that?)
Jim Backus (Mr. Howell from Giligan's Island)
Ray Bradbury's grave...although, he's not dead yet.
James Coburn (he played the greedy poker guy in Maverick)
Dominique Dunn (older sister from Poltergeist)
Eva Gabor (to which my husband said, "Who?" *disapproves*)
George C. Scott
Brian Keith (I actually teared up for this one.)
Dean Martin (hubby was all fan-boy!)
Carroll O'Connor (Archie Bunker)
I'm sure there were others that I just didn't see. You wouldn't believe how small this cemetery is and how tucked away it is. We drove around the block four times before we finally found the entrance. And, once you're in it, there are a lot of small plaques for those who've been cremated, rather than interred. What really interested me were the graves dating back to 1907. If you have ever been there, then you'll know why it's so bizarre to see graves that old there. It's, quite literally, surrounded by HUGE buildings - right off Wilshire Blvd. It boggles the mind to think that those stones were there before any of those buildings. And,...I forgot my camera. :( What struck me, as well, were the lack of crosses in this cemetery. Of course, there are a lot of Jewish people buried there...and it looked like quite a few Muslims, too. But,...still...I don't think I saw one cross. And, I love the idea of just having a tiny plaque instead of a huge stone. It's very intimate.
We had an exceptional dinner on the way home, sans children. It's the first time out alone in probably six years. Yeah...I know. It was almost too quiet. But, we had great conversation and company. I got to do some fangirl swooning of my own. LOL
Oh oh oh... on the way back, and this is what I came here to post about (duh), we saw a church sign that said: "Monday lecture: Why Atheism Is Bankrupt. Bingo! - Friday Night. Pre-marital financial counselling - Thursday."
Again...and me with no camera. *pouts*
