Woo-hoo, it must be a record!

It's been 2 weeks today since I've been to a funeral.
Goddamn, lately it seems like I spend more time in a fucking graveyard than I do at home. You know it's pretty fucking bad when a Funeral Home Representative sees you at a funeral and makes it a point to ask how you're doing this time.
My previous record was 3 funerals in 3 months (back in the bad ol' days when we were trying to kill ourselves off) but I believe I've broken that.
Granny Elsie - July 27th
Terri Sterner- September 20th
Grandpa Bud - September 30th
I've buried 3 in a little more than 2 months.
The difference being of course, these 3 folks all died of natural causes. Not a one of them was gunshot or killed in a car accident.
Fuck, I feel so goddamned old lately........

Ya, you keep thinking that way, you will be dead.

Keep thinking Good...Beaches, Bitches on the beach, ya know what I'm saying?

I'm rambling again... ;) Chin up Wirecutter! Life is sofa king good!

Pretty much the same here. Three of us left out of the group of nine that loosley ran together back in the mid 60s with one of those is in poor health now.

Hey, Wirecutter -- think of it this way:

At least folks are dying of natural causes (i.e., getting too old), rather than getting shot, dying in car wrecks, etc.

Keep your chin up -- that way, the beer will go down your throat instead of dribbling all over your shirt! HA!!
