Ashes to Ashes Dust to Dust [Jun. 25th, 2003|04:24 pm]
I just got back from heading up to bury my grandmother. Michigan was surprisingly cool and pleasant compared to home. We buried the ashes on my birthday.

First day on the road, there was a softball tournament and some sort of midget car racing thing going on, so we ate a pizza and went down the road a half hour. Second day was nice enough despite the 70 mile an hour stretch on I - 95 (lovingly called the Road where Trucks go to Die by my father.)

Minister was this greying man (wearing the collar and a horridely uncomfortable looking polyester version of the standard shirt) who for some reason started the litany with "Earth to Earth," and then the rest - left me baffled for quite a while. Maybe it's some part of the Episcopal version. Dinner was bread, cheese and salami from some of the nifty stores eaten on the motel table.

And now, I'm home.

*pets* Happy birthday. Wish I could've said it to you over IM, but I haven't seen you on recently. (And I haven't been on much recently anyway.)

And I already gave you my condolences, I think.
