    Default 2nd Annual Post Hurricane Rita BigWoods Cemetery Workday...

    Postponed due to rain....only my family and the caretaker's family showed up to work in the rain on Saturday. So, the workday has been postponed til the Saturday following Easter. Hopefully, there will be a large turn out and I'll be able to post tons of photos!

    Default workday rescheduled!!

    Message sent to all the local newspapers

    Our first attemp at a work day was a rain out. We have re-scheduled the work day for April 14th from 8 am to 4 pm. Would like you to be there if possible. Bring whatever tools you can, if you have anyone you know with a backhoe that can dig stumps, please advise them to show up that Saturday.

    "lord, I am so tired...how long can this go on??? I've been working in a grave yard..." lol. Work day was today. I'm sorry there are no photos to post, but I literally WORKED all day long, no time to stop and take photos. We have about 30 people there with....YES!!!! a stump grinder! only got about 3 stumps out before they were called off to another job, but that's 3 less in the cemetery! And, they've promised to come back. We had chain saws, weedeaters, rakes, blowers. We had daddys, mommas, maw maws and paw paws and all their kids to boot. My hubby was a slave driver to me. I'd start talking to someone when they would ask me about rebuilding the church and he would say something like "Talk and work at the same time...daylights burning." No mercy for the bad if the want it...(that's from ACDC) The flowers look great in their beds, I really wish I had taken a second to take a photo of them. Sorry about that, but by the end of the day, it was just plain time to leave. I had a piece of poison oak slap me straight in the face, lol...thank goodness I'm not allergic to it. It was all over the dead trees and tree stumps. We'll see who wakes up scratching in the morning at my house, all the men in the house are allergic to it.

    Just had to let ya'll know about how it went...which was wonderfully. I guess we put a total of about 240 man hours into it today. I am feeling really blessed at the moment and had to share it with my friends here. As Holli would say, "Mwah!"

    Oh!!! And, we didn't see any snakes!!! Yay!
