"Sweet Battle Axe"

Me (see reflection) hard at work taking photos of cemetery headstones for F.A.G.

As regular readers of my blog know I am a Find a Grave volunteer.  The past couple of weeks I've been updating my account with photos and information on graves that I took at the Union Cemetery in Georgetown, Delaware.

Updating my Find a Grave.com account is my stress reliever.

So while I was updating my Find a Grave. com account this morning I came across this headstone.  I had to laugh out loud.  I LOVE IT!

Sounds like they had a very honest relationship, or she was just a... um... down to earth woman.
