Time Warp Tuesday: Tomb Raider Time!!!!

You know Jen runs Time Warp Tuesday, right?  A chance to look back at your old photos?
I am taking poetic license with this AGAIN.
I am writing about photos of old things!
I am walking Nook the other day through one of the cemeteries in Ithaca and see next to a tombstone....

A BIG HOLE leading into a grave!
On the one hand, you want to get closer and LOOK INSIDE.
On the other, you know that ZOMBIES, SPOOKS OR VAMPIRES might be nearby!
I did get close.
There is an OLD BOTTLE in there.
I tell the wife "It is probably full of GOLD COINS, but I am NOT touching it...that is like, vampire bait for humans:  you grab for the bottle of gold coins and THEY GRAB YOU!  Probably suck your blood then let their zombie friends eat your flesh..."

Is there a caretaker for this old cemetery? If so, let them know and they can take care of the vampires. It is strange looking, it looks like paper or something shredded at the opening.

You look terribly cold standing there trying not to get eaten by zombies!

But think of the story you'll have to tell.

I'll have to show this to my sister since her newly married last name is Kenney. Maybe she would be able to avoid the zombie curse if she is a relative. Then she could get the bottle of gold coins and share with us since you found it and this is my brilliant plan! Only little problem is that she lives in Milwaukee. Rats! Foiled again.

I think it's a zombie gopher.

You look pretty fit - you could out run slow zombies - but I wouldn't want to go up against those fast ones...

rub the bottle, maybe a genie will come out! Looks like dollar bills in the dirt...

Also, I *LOVE* the new header pic. You look like a celebrity caught by the paparazzi. :)
