Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Gotta love a lady with a sense of humor!!  And the cool thing is her kids honored her wishes!!

From a lady online.  A friend of hers died who had a great sense of humor and always used to say that when she died she wanted a parking meter on her grave that says 'Expired.'  So her nephew got her one on eBay!  She said that the lady's grave is right by the road so everyone can see it and many people have stopped to get a chuckle..



Notice that she died on her birthday





Give us a sense of humor.

Give us the grace to see a joke,

To get some humor out of life,

And pass it on to other folk.

The irony of life is that, by the time

you're old enough to know your way

around, you're not going anywhere.
