    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.

    Well played, Wall Eye. That's a pretty good send-off.

    I'm thinking "Devils Cut" may apply to me according to my deceased in laws.

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

    Disturbing at first, but fun to think about!

    No bottle buried with me except a glencairn. The boubon in heaven will be better anyway. After the funeral, I want all my friends to gather at my house, they can open up whatever bottle they want. They all will then drink and remember the good times, happily. Collection then divided up between them all.

    Which gets me to wonder...what do you think the going rate is to get a dead guy laid in a casket...?

    No bottles with me either only friends and family enjoying all the things I never got a chance to open as a proper send off.

    I think I'd go this route as well. I'd like to have my Clutch flask in my breast pocket. I carried it there when I was married, and it has the complete lyrics from "Drink to the Dead" engraved on the back.

    ---------------------------------------




    If knee-deep in cat nip
    At the old icebox
    I recommend you whistle
    And give the box three knocks
    Should you be so lucky
    To hear whisperin'
    It is an invitation
    For you to leap in

    May you go marching in three measure time
    Dressed up as asses, drunk to the nines
    Swing from the rafters
    Shouting those songs
    Gone unsung for far too long

    If boxing your shadow
    At the wall full of moss
    And antlers approach you
    Then I am at a loss

    May you go marching in three measure time
    Dressed up as asses, drunk to the nines
    Swing from the rafters
    Shouting those songs
    Gone unsung for far too long

    Drink to the dead all you still alive
    We shall join them in good time
    Should you go crossin' that silvery brook
    It's best to leap before you look

    Surrounded by toadstools
    At the old green glen
    I'm afraid there is little
    That I can recommend
    Save all of your courage
    And sincere prayer
    And where you go-a treadin'
    Take the utmost care

    So let us
    Drink to the dead all you still alive
    We shall join them in good time
    Should you go crossin' that silvery brook
    It's best to leap before you look
