Well, it's raining. The forecast called for sloppy, wet snow and we got rain. After today the temps drop. We're getting another one of those Arctic Blasts. Oh, and we're not even a month into winter, so there's no need for you to check your calendar. This year, winter seems to be moving much slower than usual. Of course, as I get older, maybe I'm not finding winter as much fun as when I was younger.
My aunt's viewing / funeral are today. I've chosen skip it because of the reception line. Now some may think this sounds silly, but I really hate waiting in lines and this line is going to be long. My aunt had 4 children, so they, and their spouses, are going to be lined up just past the casket. There are also 11 grandchildren and they, and their spouses, will be lined up just past their parents. After that there will be a cluster great grandchildren who number 17. Inevitably one or more of them will say, "why is it we only see each other at funerals?" Well, because our worlds very rarely interact. If you live 5 miles away, and the only time you see these people is at the end of someone's life, you might want to re-evaluate your relationships. Their side of the family is very formal: an open casket viewing, a funeral, and graveside services (the rain has turned to snow) followed by a private luncheon for the family. There will be navy blue suits and expensive dresses purchased for the occasion. hhhmp. I asked to my brother, "why couldn't they just do a nice memorial service when the weather is nicer?" See, I'd go to something like that.
My mother has long said. "If people cant come see me when Im alive, they don't need to come see me when Im dead."ReplyDelete
The last time I actually saw her was at my uncle's funeral, so, I agree with your Mom.Delete
My condolences to you about your aunt. A nice memorial service sounds lovely to me as well. This is what pisses me off about the Democrats. They try to be nice and don't want to ruffle feathers. The Republicans didn't give a shit when they did it. They make me so angry.ReplyDelete
The Republican's haven't given a shit in years. I tell people they are the part of the selfish, their favorite pronoun is 'my.'Delete
I'm with you skipping the viewing. If you only see them at funerals, they're not that close. You can pay your respects later.ReplyDelete
And Manchin and Sinema make me stabby. Fools!
The only good news is that they 'invited' Stanka to talk to the committee about Orange Lard not stopping the insurrection (wasn't she the president's advisor?) and that the NY GA got to tell Cheeto is in trouble (not criminal, YET).
I can't wait until all of them get their comeuppance.
Gee, it seems as though a day barely goes by without the Orange Anus getting bad news.Delete
Fuck Manchin and fuck Sinema. I hope they both get kicked to the curb on election day.ReplyDelete
I don't think they know just how thin the ice is their skating on.Delete
Fuck Manchin and Sinema, she's an embarrassment to our State and a DINO for sure who is sabotaging this Administration on purpose and has been bought and paid for by her obscenely wealthy Donors... we can't boot her ass curbside fast enough. And Manchin of West By God Virginia, one of the Poorest and most underserved of States, only likes all this Power he's been given, being a Nobody who now has the Spotlight and wouldn't have an ounce of clout were it not for the narrow margins... everything he's against would Serve his Constituents more than most States, but perhaps he Loves the Uneducated like 45 stated he did, because easier to manipulate people who have been kept ignorant and uneducated, Lording over them, isn't it? As for Funerals, they're for the Living really, the Dead, lets face it, don't need all the pomp or circumstance and show... if it wasn't shown during their Lifetime, why bother after they're Dead? You Honor them more when you are there for them while they're still here.ReplyDelete
