And now a joke or two from my archives
Rest in peace
The family hamster passed away and its five year old owner insisted on giving it a decent burial in the back garden. He invited all his friends from school and conducted the service himself. His parents standing behind their son in support were impressed with his grasp of the format followed at funerals. They then heard the final words being uttered. ‘In the name of the father, and of the Son, and into the hole he goes’.
A truly Happy Person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour, and one who can enjoy browsing old cemeteries! There are some fascinating things on old tombstones . . .
