If I should die . . .

On the trail, I died bout as happy as it gits – and if the coyotes git to me first, then I’m twice as happy cause I saved funeral money. I wanted to be cremated anyhow.

In my car, you can be sure I died happy but a little pissed that that last maneuver didn’t work.

On a bike or X/C Skiing, I was doing what I liked.

Fishing, well ‘hit don’t git no better’nat

In an airplane, I was enjoying the free fall

Laughing, you know I was happy.

During sex, I was close to the one and only woman, spouse, friend that has stood by me and given me so much pleasure in life

Playing with my grandkids, well that’s really the reason for my existence and though dead, I live on in them.

In my sleep, well that’s the best I coulda hoped for.

See ya on the flip side!

Yours truly,
