I always thought it interesting when someone was laying in a casket and someone else would say "He looks just like himself". Why wouldn't they? You would not expect him to look like the guy down the street.
And they also say,"Doesn't he look good!" I say, "He looks dead, how could he look good." LOL I don't attend "wakes" or "viewings" as some people say. I feel that the person's life energy is gone someplace else; hopefully to a better place, and all that is left is the husk. When my mother died a year ago last September, I just had her remains cremated and scattered them where she liked to sit in the summer, looking at the horses in the paddocks and watching the world go by. Most of her friends had passed on before her, and she knew only a few people here. I had brought her down from Ma. to KY about 6 years ago. I took care of her until I could not lift her any longer. Luckily she lived only 6 weeks in the nursing home. I have told hubby that if I pass on before him, I would like the same low key send off. I don't think that it is disrespectful to the dead to be done with the "arrangements" quickly. Now, I must get myself out of this morbid thinking and enjoy the day our Lord has given us.

I have several brothers who say their wives call them names and never want to listen. It warms my heart to find that relationships do not always go one way;) I think you have no worries that hubby of your loves you very much. Sounds like he came chasing you down after that unfortunate accident with the dishwasher.He'll do exactly what you want ;) You and he impress me by that way you raise your grandchild and love your family. The birds have been chirping all morning.Lovely day.

When I am gone, I don't care what they do with my shell. My soul won't be in it anyways. In the old days, people were just laid out at home until family and friends could arrive to celebrate their life and it was more of a "pot luck" reunion than a funeral.

Since there was no air conditioning and quite often no screens, some took turns to be "sitting up with the dead" and stay "wake" just to keep the flies off. Any service was graveside with the community elder just taking off his hat and saying a few words. Generally, no sermons or preachers.

In Deep South Louisiana tradition still dictates sitting up with the dead. I was amazed the first funeral I went to where they had the funeral home opened all night and there was more food than a family reunion.

Louisiana did many things the old way. It was not unusual for the owner of a country store to keep hogs, chickens, goats etc. out back and process and sell the meat right out of the store. USDA had little to no control over these independant peoples. They also served Boudin along the roadways and had drive-thru daquiri huts. I guess they still do that, I am speaking from experiences of about 30 years ago.
hmmm

All my featherheads are in the coop with their gizzards full, and the head count is complete!! I have such a small flock that it isn't hard to count them though, hehe. I can tell who's in there most times by just listening to them 'coo' and chatter to each other before they fall asleep.

Have you ever noticed that, AW? They chatter to each other and seem to talk? They are such funny critters. It reaally IS hard for me to eat meat lately.

Oddly though I've made some BBQ boneless, skinless, chicken breasts for dinner as a matter of fact. With some white hominy and honey glazed "yellow" carrots!! YUM!! As long as I can eat it and not relate it to my own featherheads, it'll be a great dinner.

Any body wanna come over for dinner? I've made enough for at least three more people, so you better get over here before I vacuum seal it and put it up for hard times in the freezer...
(Or should I say "lazy times")? LOL!!

Good evening birdthreaders. Aren't we lucky in Kentucky, hope all of you had a nice as day as we did in my corner of Kentucky. So happy to see UK win big at Rupp Arena last night. Love those Wildcats.:)

Hope all of you are having a good evening.

Nope, while that 8.0 was happening our western coast was lit up on the map. It even stirred the Madrid area. Missouri had a small one. I seen this and thought you might want to scroll down it and see our big one in Alaska.

Too many hens to tell who is talking, but I can tell the roosters. I like to watch the roosters find things and then call the hens to come eat. I guess they are doing the opposite of you. LOL Too late for me, I already pigged out on peanut butter LOL

I could never eat a chicken that I knew. Yes, they chortle to each other and have lots of conversations. Some chickens, if handled enough when young, will sit in your lap and enjoy someone stroking her feathers. When my kids were little we had a very small flock that behaved more like dogs then chickens, from all the attention that they got.

Ancient Wolf, I thought you might enjoy reading about a family really roughing it. Wow, to been the first to see them after so long. Amazing

The people that time forgot: Incredible story of Russian family cut off from all human contact for 40 years who didn't know about WWII and had to eat leather shoes to survive

The Lykovs were Old Believers - members of a persecuted Russian sect

They left for wilderness after Karp saw brother killed by communists in 1936

Lived off land, ate leather shoes in harsh winter, unaware of WWII

Found in 1979 by Russian helicopter searching for spot to land geologists

The Lykovs were stupefied by modern goods like TV and cellophane

Tragically in 1981, three of Lykov children died, possibly of modern diseases

The pictures are interesting too. Can you imagine? Wow, I am so thankful to have lived a pretty good pampered life.

Where is everybody these days. The thread has been slow in the last 24 hours. Usually I have to read quite a bit in order to catch up, but not tonight. Maybe AW has a dinner date, but where is Hempburn?
I haven't seen him post since Una died. Oh,no, you don't suppose....Naw,can't be.

This story cracked me up. lol

Agence France-Presse reports A replica of Michelangelo's Renaissance sculpture David that was erected suddenly last summer is unnerving residents of a Japanese town, with some calling for the naked masterpiece to be given underwear.
The 16 foot tall marble statue was donated by a businessman who hails from the area around Okuizumo.

"It is the first time we have had anything like this in our town. Perhaps people were perplexed," town official Yoji Morinaga said.
