Alphabe~Thursday "E" is for Epitaph.
Today I am participating in Jenny Matlock’s Alphabe~Thursday. This Thursday is about the letter "E".
Just plant me a tree at the foot of my grave,to provide a cool respite underneath of its shade.
lending aid to all who visit, by providing somewhere to sit.
This bench upon my epitaph you sit is one last attempt at me expressing my wit.
No your visit was not wasted, so do not despair, I can still look down from heaven and see that you care.
Come sit on my bench and remember me, while you enjoy the shade cast down from my tree.
A tree filled with melody from the little birds that sing,
like me you’ll enjoy “The sweetness of doing nothing”
George Bernard Shaw
"Well, it will be a new experience anyway."
"I told you I was sick."
"Here Lies Good Old Fred, A Great Big Rock Fell On His Head"
(unknown) from Massachusetts:
"Here lies Matthew Mudd,
Death did him no hurt;
When alive he was only Mudd,
But now he's only dirt."
"Blimey it's darker than I thought in here."
Here Lies My Longtime Wife. Now that she's gone, I'm lovin' life!
Here Lies My Wife, I Bid Her Goodbye. She Rests in Peace, and Now So Do I.
“La dolcezza di non fare nulla” -The Sweetness of Doing Nothing.
Mel Blanc (by himself)1908 - 1989
"That's all, folks!"
