As I said yesterday, I found alternate activities for game day. I was visiting my parents for the weekend and took Sunday afternoon for myself. I've posted in the past about how I find cemeteries calming places (here and here). Since I was close enough I decided to go visit my grandparents' graves. Though I like to see old headstones that actually stick up from the ground my grandparents are buried in a more modern cemetery where all the markers are flush to the ground. It's a pretty large place but fortunately both sets of grands are in the same section. The funny thing is my paternal grandparents are "neighbors" to the folks who were their next door neighbors for nearly 50 years. I had a little trouble finding one set of grandparents but in the process I stumbled over my great-great grands. I said hello since I was there. The weather was so mild and sunny. It was a nice, peaceful stroll in a quiet place.

All in all it was a peaceful day with beautiful weather. I had time for some reflection and education and I was content to do my exploring alone. That beats football by a country mile any day of the week.
