    Ha! Joe, I appreciate your unique ponderings (as usual) and me thinks this the only desirable circumstance of being laid in a casket.

    Sounds like a new bucket list item, for sure.

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

    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
    Yeti, you are one colorful character.

    I would want each of my friends to pick one of my bottles to finish off during the pre-funeral tailgating, and then leave the empty bottle in my casket.

    I told my wife when I went in for cancer surgery if any thing goes wrong Joe and Gary get to split my bourbon collection.

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

    The idea of laying a bottle in the casket is too sad. To me it comes off as, "And there's the one that did it to him!" If the bottle's full, it done got to me before I could get to it, and that's bad news. If it's empty, at least we killed each other off in the struggle, I suppose; but still, these are not images I want associated with my death.

    Give me a utilitarian burial. Naked in a wooden box, let the bourbon left over in my body feed the thirst of the earth as it absorbs me.

    Oh I understand completely. Many a good man has been done in by the Demon Rum. I don't seem to have the "alcoholic gene" as I can control my consumption pretty easily, and I don't really want a bottle in my casket, in fact, I would rather be cremated.

    I wonder if drinker's bodies burn any faster, or hotter?
