Today, two Norton County Kansas Genealogy Society women showed me a good time in local cemeteries (and if you aren't into doing family history research, that statement probably sounds pretty strange!). I learned how to do 'grave witching' and it really works! Pretty freaky, but it really works.

They assured me those big, dark clouds weren't going to whisk us away in a remake of the Wizard of Oz. We also had to visit a country cemetery 'while it was dry'. A little bit of rain brings flooding pretty quickly in areas that are in a drought.
Tomorrow I will be at the local computer store to see if I can purchase a USB card reader so I can post some of the pics I've been taking. (Okay, yes, I know my new smart phone will take pictures, but give me a break! I just learned how to text and use all the apps my neighbor, friends, and cousins have told me I have to have! Maybe by the end of the trip I will be accomplished with pictures as well.)
Big surprise of the day was learning there is someone with my paternal surname who lives in this town. I can hardly wait to meet this family.
I attended the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Norton today. What beautiful stained glass windows. These pictures just don't do them justice:
