Jeremy Bentham also thought that corpses should be stuffed and used as light poles, hat racks, and other useful objects. Chong' would make a good hatrack if s/he were taller and didn't attract fleas.

Druther do that, Amos, than my first idea: have portions of my ashes mailed to various random people around the world with a note about how much I treasured their friendship and wanted them to have something to remember it by. Kinda like a Joe Hill, but to strangers.

I am of the opinion that, like certain cultures in the Japanese Islands, the people of MOAB should all have their ashes mingled in a common urn. We could start a garden.

Have you heard, Rap? Chongo wants to be stuffed and put on exhibit in a glass case after he dies, like that Utilitarian Philosophy guy, whatever the heck his name was....(?)

He figures it would serve as an inspiration to future generations.

Maybe they could even supply his stuffed body with power so he could beat cymbals and screech every hour on the hour like the "Jolly Chimp" toy does.

It would become a place of national pilgrimage...sort of like the Lincoln Memorial. Great idea, eh?

This is good exorcise.

Well, we have a remodeled bathroom. A new tub and surround, new sink, new toilet, new flooring, new lighting, and a (non-loadbearing) wall was cut in half to permit light to flood the toilet area. The room was repainted in a very light gray-blue and white and a mirroed medicine cabinet was attached to wall by the door, reflecting more light back into the room. The back of the door was painted white. All paints were gloss or semi-gloss exterior because of the high moisture content of a bathroom. The ceiling fan was refurbished and reinstalled. It really, really looks nice. Now we'll have to remodel the rest of the joint so that it looks as good as the bathroom.

I am partial to black coffee, myself, but I won't decline a nice cup of black tea one in a while.

I dunno what the problem is with you guys and winter. Your cameras are all broken and make everything look white. You should get iPhones, like I have, and all your pictures will look sunny like mine!

And the poor twirp who she talked to about "closing" the apartment the other day may never find whatever gonads he had before she came in. I'm finding a lot of holy cards: intercessions to St. Jude, St. Anthony, and saints no one ever heard of, like St. Radbod.

Rap, a tip if you're still sorting and tossing and donating and such at your MIL's home: donations are a huge benefit to the estate when you get around to the complications of doing the income tax for the dearly departed. My father had literally dozens of walking and running shoes and lots of good-condition clothes. I counted and boxed (in U-Haul medium sized boxes) and had the St. Vincent De Paul folks pick them up. Giving each pair a flat value and doing the math resulted in enough donation to different places (don't donate more than $5000 to any one place or you need an appraisal) saved our bacon as far as paying tax. He'd had a CD mature and pay into his bank account that year and it would have bitten us hard. By donating the clothes to people who can really use them we benefited ourselves also.

Back to the regular folderol.

That's what I'll do! I'll bury my guns with various dead people and then when the storm-booted jacktroopers come to take them they can rip my guns from cold, dead hands and not mine! Heck, maybe I'll even use other people's guns! I don't think it'll matter as long as there's guns and cold, dead hands. I think I'll use water guns -- supersoakers, real assault stuff -- so nobody gets hurt but just wet. Maybe I can get people who aren't dead but have cold hands hold the guns -- maybe just cold hands would be enough for the supersoakers to get ripped from.

Yeah!

"You'll get my water guns when you rip them from his or her cold hands!"

That sounds about right. Now on to dealing with more hysteria and irrational thinking.

Thank you. I hope that the play wins the Golden Globes award. The PBJ movement has long intrigued me and it's about time someone wrote something about it and its founder, Dandy Rose Eddy. Burying his prose with his dead wife and then digging her up and ripping it from her cold, dead hands has always struck me as sort of NRA-ish, but as they say, "aye chicken aye son gout."

What I feared when I was in the Infantry has come to pass and is exemplified by SRS: women are now permitted in combat roles.

I greatly feared that, for as an Infantryman I knew that women would view the job as similar to cleaning the toilet: a dirty job, but it has to be done so let's get on with it.

I feared that when they bayoneted you they'd shove the blade in and twist it before yanking it out. Not that they would bayonet the wounded, but that they'd bayonet the survivors.

Another day of fun has drawn to a close, as the sun sank silently and slowly in the western sky. Too bad that it was snowing and I couldn't see it. Well, Monday I fly back and see if the house is still standing, the bathroom remodeling is done, and if there are any bills waiting to be paid. Pat, on the other hand, will be at a Winter Quilt Retreat in Indiana.

The *Important Papaers* part is what Pat's working on now. Lots of things are coming out that before were Unknown, like the baby girl who was stillborn in 1947 in Louisiana. Many things have disappeared, things that might have made the marriage appear to be less than the Perfect Catholic Marriage, where the rosary was said each night before bed. History was rewritten the longer my Mother In Law lived, and her very brothers say that the longer she lived the poorer their family was. By the times she died I'm pretty sure they were scrounging rotten cabbage leaves and stinking turnips from the garbage can behind the grocery store for their morning gruel, which was eaten with moldy bread filched from the gutters, crushed beneath the wheels of the garbage trucks, but they prayed over every morsel as a Good Catholic Family should. Whatever tooted her horn, ya know, and while my own family wasn't rich during the Depression, they didn't starve although there were hungry times.

It's late and I'm going to bed very soon.

My great aunt Josephine had the same rosaries you're talking about - sent as a token by every Catholic charitable organization in hopes she'd send real money as thanks for the cheap plastic beads. We had a bag with several pounds of them, as I recall. And other pieces of brik-a-brac sent by the same groups. I wasn't able to keep all of the interesting stuff from her house (amounting to the family history because the past possessions of many family members were stored there), I had to talk cousins in to holding onto things and explaining that sets should be kept together to have more value. I hate to contemplate how unequipped I was to handle her estate. . . good luck with the financial end, that bit can tear families apart.

Oh, these are the rosaries sent by various religious groups, like the Discalcined Oblate Passionistas of the Figure Divine and the Little Immaculate Friars of the Missionary Society of St. Dismas. These include, but are not limited to, rosaries imprinted on plastic cards, single decade rosaries in the shape of a ring with a cross ("Mirror of Venus"), and other varieties.

One rosary was buried in her hands. The other ones that have family value have been kept.

Because I'd rather get you to fly in to shred paper.   

Seriously though, we're leaving on the 28th for "centering" for Pat and bill-paying for me and will return on the 5th. On the 7th, two friends from the Chicago are fly in and while one has to return on the 13th the other can stay well past that -- and SHE'S a professor emeritus of law and should be VERY helpful in dealing with the p***k who we understand is in charge of releasing the "deposit" monies.

I would not like to be on the receiving end if both Pat and Mary work him over. He will end up a eunuch, possibly literally.

We've made some good headway on the clothing and things already...and found 11 photocopies of the Last and Latest Will as well as originals.

Amos, please feel free to come out and inventory the blank religious greeting cards, the scapulars, the medals, the rosaries.... I'll buy you a beer if do.

Mater, consummatum est.

My MIL was buried this morning in Arlington National Cemetery in a simple ceremony. The chaplain's words were lost in the sounds of jets from National Airport and helicopters from the Pentagon, but she now belongs to The Ages.

Cleaning up after her belongs to us. The 16 shopping bags of shredded paper that has been taken to recycle and the 1,300+ pennies I've sorted are just the tip of the iceberg. There are clothes, shoes, purses, papers, kitchen utensils, furniture and a raft of other things to go through before this is over and the apartment can be released for sale.

Should anyone want to volunteer, the line forms on the right.
