Buried, not Cremated

Here lies the arsonist, Ash James -
Although, he would have chosen flames.

It amazed us, once, to see the grave of a notorious pyromaniac in a local grave 
yard - I know that she would have certainly preferred cremation!

    Still dieting, Jack, so the chips and fried foods are off limits for me. I'm sure my friend will be rolling his fish in corn meal and frying it. I'll be grilling or broiling. Can't wait! Love, Carolyn

    Dear Jack, please let me know how Sue is doing when she has the bladder implants. I've never heard of this procedure before and will keep her in my prayers. Love to both of you, Carolyn (Glad Sue likes the Eagles -- one of America's best rock bands. The reunite sometimes to go on tour. When they first split, they said they'd not do this till "Hell Freezes Over." So that was the name of their first reunion tour.) LOL Love, Carolyn

    Hey Jack, I have not heard of an epigram til this moment....your topic is cool...of course an arsonist should be burnt at the "steak" (pun) like Joan of Ark....a real roasted weanie for the victims!....Here I go again, breakin the law!!! Shame on me. Enjoyed! Gwendolen

    What a funny Epitaph, Jack! Love the name you chose for her. Yes, I'm sure she would have preferred cremation. That's what I wish for myself. As per your comment, wouldn't the Wife of Bath be the Wif of Bathe ? That's how I remember reading Chaucer and probably why I didn't enjoy him as a teen. LOL Love, Carolyn
