No big secret. Went AWOL when life got crazy. It was easier to quit than try and limit. When you aren't around for about 1000 days it makes your post-per-day average tiny. Now if you could break out just the posts since I came back in April-ish you could say I'm making up for lost time!

End of lovely vision. I do still have a small remembrance container here on a shelf.

That reminds me of a scene in a movie--the man's friends have taken him to the seashore he loved, tossed him into the air, only to have him blow back into their faces with the prevailing wind.

Will have to speak to the kids today about my disposal; they hate even hints about it.

I told DH to have me cremated, then take a Caribbean cruise and sprinkle me somewhere pretty.

Sad, but funny, TL. I imagine some of Hubby has made it to the Gulf by now.

I recall seeing that scene too, what was the movie?

This talk of cremation is interesting.

I plan on being cremated. I am still undecided about becoming an organ/tissue donor. I need to find out more about that.

I want to prepay my funeral expenses. How soon is too soon? Maybe it will be my gift to me for my 60th birthday!

I have an old friend who says he wants to be cremated and have his buddies sprinkle his ashes in the red light district of his city. His only fear is that his wife will come along and sweep him up to take him back home one last time!

Shrek and I are 15 years apart, but we have the same spot in mind for our cremains, a place we both loved as kids. It's high up in the mountains in Wyoming.

Organ/tissue donorship is easy. I have it on my driver's license. Figured once I'm gone, I won't need my stuff anymore, if someone else can use it, all the better. The ultimate recycling. Then they just burn up whatever's left over.

Prepaying is not a bad idea.

If inflation hits the funeral industry like everything else I would guess sooner is better. When my Aunt was in a nursing home, getting low in her own funds and getting ready to apply for Medicaid, the social services director told me to go to the family's funeral director and make arrangements so those funds were gone from her personal account. It seemed creepy but I did as instructed. The newly-minted lawyer DIL was handling advanced plannings for the family at the time, and we had a blast! When there is no pressure it seems like any other shopping, I suppose, unless you have a real aversion to the idea of dying. You're born - you die. If you're lucky there is a big span between those two dates.

Just a thought, Discuss Cooking is a great place to discuss ALL types of cooking, including cremation....
