    Wacky When Wacky Isn't What You're Expecting

    So my aunt's funeral was today (wait, this really is kind of funny - promise!). We line up in the procession and head for the cemetery. On the way there, I hear a very familiar guitar riff on the radio. I didn't even look at the radio, but said immediately to my wife, "Kind of ironic having this come on the radio now, isn't it?"

    Queen. "Keep Yourself Alive."

    And in a moment that damn near brought a tear to my, my daughter chimed in from the back seat, "And it only adds to the situation that it's on a station called Boneyard."

    Reminded me of this old commercial...

    deep in the raspberry...
    There needs to be smiles as well as tears at such occasions. I'm hoping my funeral is something more like a celebration and party for the life I lived and for the people who touched me and those that I touched.

    The other irony to this story is think of all the rock artists who have died and who have hit songs about life and death. Jim Morrison, yours truly--Jimi Hendrix, Freddy Mercury, Kurt Cobain, Bob Marley just to name a few.

    My condolences for your loss.
