    I just had a strange vision of my funeral...

    So, I'm laying in the nice casket, in the viewing room/funeral home parlor, and I have a nice suit on, and a smile on my face, eyes closed, and a really nice cut glass tumbler in one hand half full of bourbon and a bottle of Four Roses laying next to me.

    What bottle would be in your casket?

    What's a matter guys? Is this just a little too creepy?

    Think about it this way then: the Egyptians buried sacred objects with their pharaohs so they would have them in the afterlife.

    You are King Tut. Which one would it be?

    Empties only, were I to have a casket. It's 'water of life', wasted on stiffs, living or dead.

    I hope to be embalmed in OBSQ.

    A lot of bourbon-related dreams and visions as of late.

    Embalmed as in covered with so as to preserve you (and maybe improve your smell?). Nice. I think. Respect - and a little concern.

    Yes. It's an upcoming Georgia Bourbon Society selection.

    An unopened bottle of Stagg (got to give the grave robbers something they can enjoy), and a deck of cards.

    Re: I just had a strange vision of my funeral...

    I would really rather my family not waste a lot of time, effort, and money on getting me laid out in a casket so how about this - take my ashes and use enough of them to fill up an empty Blanton's bottle. (I really like Blanton's and you have to admit they have a cool bottle.) Make sure you use an "S" cork - the one where the little jockey has just won the race. Then take me out in the boat and drop me off over a nice, deep, Walleye infested point of a Canadian shield lake. Then everyone get together back in camp to grill steaks, fry fish, and drink their favorite bourbon or scotch around a big campfire telling fish stories.
