Warning: some mild violence
This is how we all wish life was:
It would be nice if life were this way, but in my experience it 's not. That's why there are so many bad guys and so few heroes.

This is how life really is:
On a lighter note, I get a letter every six weeks or so from the county funeral parlor. The undertaker has my best interests at heart, he says, and he wants me to come in and sign up for my funeral now, and start paying on it. He thinks at my age this is the right thing to do. His idea of a funeral is they lay you out at the funeral parlor for a "viewing." All your friends come by and look at your dead body.
In my case, it would be like throwing a party and nobody came, because I'm not in all that tight with anybody local.
Then they dig a hole with a backhoe, put you in a six thousand dollar box, put up your stone (mine would be the VA vets stone, I'm not paying for frills.) That's it.
But he's wasting his paper and postage. This is the funeral I want!
