Cause and Effect Occasionally Baffle Us
We still smile recalling various times when we wandered apart and lost each other, Europe, Grand Cayman, and frequently Walmart. We now carry cell phones to keep in touch.

Still we have this strange compatibility and parallel understanding of important issues in life.
I get my adventures through freak accidents; he through deliberate flaunting of safety rules (driving the zero-turn on our dock). His life ambition has always been to be pulled down our creek while hanging from one of those human kite things seen at resorts. I do not want to see it.

There's only one burial spot left in the family plot, so since we are both getting cremated, we should just be crammed into one jar and have done with it. Then we would fit nicely into the remaining place unless there is some bureaucratic unsound reasoning to prevent that final two-fer. And we can be buried. With my eccentric in-laws. Now there's a dramatic box of chocolates. And at last Husband and I will be together!
With the in-laws.
I look for Judgement Day to be confusing anyway, so why fret the details.
