A couple of days ago when our good friend Linda was over here eating lunch with us, we talked about nearly everything under the sun. While she and I were talking about our favorite parts in the book Wild the subject of funerals came up. We agreed that funeral costs are ridiculously expensive and then I found out that she, like Tony and me, wants to be cremated—when the good Lord honks our horn.
When Tony and I were eating Linda's delicious, homemade, chocolate cake for dessert, Linda told us about her taking a tour of a crematorium and it was very interesting, because I learned some things I didn't know about cremation and Texas law.
Anyway, after Linda went back over to the Lodge, to babysit The Friedmans and finish reading Wild Tony and I jumped into Trigger and took off to get our mail and then go to Kerrville to run a few errands. When we were going over the pass, I opened up a green colored letter addressed to me and I burst out laughing. "What?" Tony asked.
"I can't believe that we were just talking about funeral costs and then I get this life insurance offer telling me that I might quality for their Funeral Advantage Program. It's just too weird." Tony laughed.
