Too Slow Saturday/Freaky Friday

This image was originally meant for "Freaky Friday" but since I was busy with that thing that gets in the way of all things fun a.k.a. work. I didn't get a chance to post it. There is nothing particularly freaky about it. I just found it a little strange that two days after I took mine Cheryl at GYR of South Alameda posted it as her Wordless Wednesday. And now it becomes a little freakier as I look at her picture(Click here) then again at mine you notice that in hers the grave seems clean other than a couple cacti. Then back at my picture and you see that there's a ball and a broken jewelry box lying on top. Her picture was taken May 10, 2009 and mine on August 17, 2009. I also took a picture of the jewelry box that was there as well. It looked old and weathered but I never touch anything that families leave on graves with the exception of standing up some windblown flowers. I'm not sure who is buried here because the grave is unmarked.I'm hoping maybe Cheryl can provide me with some insight on this one. I can only speculate that the family had no money for a marker but still comes to visit the grave site of a lost little girl. I don't know why but it seems as if this one turned out to be a little more freaky and interesting than I had imagined when I first started this post.


  1. Very interesting. Let us know what you find.

  3. I think this grave is screaming to be identified. Powerful set of photos you and Cheryl have.

    *Prior comment removed cause I did not proof read it! Spelling error! LOL

  4. Yup,this one's going to haunt you Deez,until you find out more.Someone loved this person.

  5. Wow! Of all the cemeteries and all the grave sites, we chose to post the same grave! What are the odds? Great minds think alike! I do not know who this grave belongs to. My initial thoughts were that it did not belong to a child. If I remember correctly, it is marked out as a full size grave. I will have to do some sleuthing around and see what I can find out.It does seem obvious that a headstone wasn't affordable in this case, and I have wondered how recently this burial happened. If and when I find out something, I will be sure to let you know! Freaky!
