Bartholomew the third has a feathered friend.
I hit a milestone yesterday.
Approx 8 days ago I was at 99,000. I did the math. That is
approx 125 daily a lot of miles on the road and mucho gasso. I am proud to say that this weekend I will not be driving out of my little 4 mile safe zone.
Next week, different story.
BTW: I love my GMC!
I am saddened by the deaths of Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. Farrah seemed as though she had a beautiful heart, wanted to be here for her family and died way too soon. I recently watched the documentary “Farrahs Story” and bawled my eyes out through the entire show. I am a sissy like that. I loved her in the ‘Burning Bed.’ Remember that movie? She took revenge on her abusive husband!!! My heart goes out to her family today.
Michael to me, was a lost soul for most of his life. I don’t think he had a chance at a normal life. Or as my brother used to say: ‘Not a snowball’s chance in hell of being normal.”
I hope they are both at peace.
I have been thinking of death quite a bit lately too. Not sure why. I hope I am not next. But if I am, I am contemplating NOT going the route of cremation.
I have always been adamant about it, not wanting to take up land space. But I recently saw that you can have a ‘greener’ burial. In a green burial, they don’t use formaldehyde in your body, you are placed in a pine or wicker box and put into the ground with a naturally made head marker, that will eventually dissolve. (compost)
So, you can only visit my grave as long as you remember where the heck I am.
Goodness, most of us can’t remember where we parked our car, so good luck on this one… perhaps I won’t have many visitors after all. That is ok, as long as you think about me. daily.
The wicker box? This is a bit like hanging out in PIER ONE for all of eternity.
I will go with the pine please. As a matter of fact, we may have some scraps in the garage, Coach can just fashion a cute little box for me. (I can squeeze) No need to cut down an innocent tree for me.
Heck, there may be a nice spot next to the compost out back. Right next to my beloved cat Junior. Gosh I miss him.
Eventually I will turn into part of the earth…see, you just can’t get rid of me.
Happy Friday to everyone!
I wish for you time with your loved ones & that the ones you love can give you time.
Safe travels or safely at home.
Enjoy your weekend.
