I sure hope you got them at a reduced rate for students or thru the Federal Government, those things can be a burden enough without having them at regular interest rates!!

I had no clue what was what and I owe a fortune for getting my master's degree. Plus, since we weren't able to pay it off with our prize money, as we had hoped to do, we will owe an added $10,000 interest just for having to pay it off monthly. I have to win another sweeps!

I went up to the cemetery for my dad's Fathers Day. When I was going to leave I went past my great-great-grandfathers grave and noticed that his daughters stone, right next to his had been broken in half. It is a very tall one and it broke at an angle. I called the office when I got home and they said that they had alot of vandalism in that area the night before. ( I didn't even notice, I was so heart sick ). That stone has been there for over 100 years. My DH and I are going back up there tomorrow morning and see what he can do to fix it. I would love to ask the person who did this, WHY?

It is pretty sad when we have to start to consider locking our cemeteries tighter than our prisons. When I was growing up, even the 'bad seeds' knew not to mess with the graves.
I am sorry to hear this happened to you, I hope you are able to get it fixed without a lot of trouble.

Thanks Maverick, one of the big cement ern's by my mom and dad grave's had broken in half once and my DH did get that put back together, so I am hoping he can repair this too. The only trouble is, this tombstone is made of sandstone. That is how old it is.

I wish him luck, out here they have actually started selling insurance for headstones and grave sites for just this reason. Really makes ya think...
