There is one statement that irks me by some people trying to console someone that has lost a loved one. And it is " He or She is in a better place now" I want to say how do you know that for sure they had it pretty good here.

I left a funeral service once after listening to about two hours of talk about the deceased and I asked my wife if we were at the right service.

Good grief, hurley. Your statement is more irksome by far. Aside from religious beliefs, they're dang sure in a better place if they were in excruciating pain for months before their death.

I've told my wife that I want to be cremated and then I want her to make me into a tattoo. I told her that I want her to pick something beautiful so she'll be happy when she looks at it. What she does with the rest of me is up to her, though. Maybe take me up to the mountains.

What if her boyfriend/next husband doesn't want a tattoo?
Maybe put the tattoo in a steer's ear?

Well then they'll have a problem because she already has one.

Nope, I'm the only one. :cowboy: It's a girlie one.

I knew a guy once that did the homemade tattoo thing on his arm. He had a list of about four women, with three crossed off. It was priceless. It also showed why you never get a lover's name tattooed on you. Only children and the deceased.

I'm not very concerned about death, were all facing it. I just hate the thought of the long suffering before we pass. Cremation will be the less expense for my wife to pay, I would hate lingering until we are totally broke. My wife deserves a comfortable life after I am gone.

Why the heck anyone would want a tattoo in the first place puzzles the crap out of me. I can see getting high, drinking, eating and other disorders. But a tattoo on a pretty woman makes me think why?

I know some people like tattoos, but I'll never get one. You don't put a bumper sticker on a Ferrari.

My wife says these young girls getting tattoos need to realize that the canvas isn't going to stay tight.

That's why it's all about location and what you put on there. I'm not a fan of all tattoos, in fact, I look at most and wonder why. But there are some that really nice and are pertinent to the person's life.

Why do people own cows? Or collect art, or guns or sports memorabilia? It's just personal taste. However, I'm not one that appreciates a person totally covered in tattoos. Too much of a good thing is not good.

I have it in my will that I'm to be cremated and my ashes added to paint and painted on our bedroom ceiling, so that my wife doesn't get any ideas after I'm gone.

A tattoo is like a big pecker that doesn't work. At least it still looks good in the shower. :shock:
