  • Final resting place

    Do you know where you are going to be after you pass away? I do.

    There's one for me and one for my wife. I smell a Turning Wheels story....

        Very nice. The artist really urned his pay on those................

        Not for me though. My instructions are to scatter my ashes in three places- my two favorite race tracks and Disney World. If my survivors feel up to it, a little bit on Ignition Park, or whatever they're calling the Studebaker factory grounds. I'm serious!

        I also allow for 'Survivors' Override'. That means, if the living would feel better doing something different with my Earth Suit, have at it. Won't make no never-mind to me.

        I worry about my family feeling obligated to hang onto my ashes, even if they may not want to. I don't want to do that to them. Of course, if they want me hanging around, creepin' out the grandkiddies, fine by me.

        Of course, by then it'll be too late for me to commission one of those cool Stude-shaped ash bins...

        Maybe cadaver service makes the most sense.......

          told my daughter a few years ago (she was around 16), to just let them cut me up and use me as shark chum off the pier at midnight.
          she thought i was joking...

            I got them delivered today. They are bigger than I thought they would be. Here's a picture with my mug for perspective. They turned out great! I'm dying to get in....

                I was lucky enough to honor both my parents last request, which involved fishing at my grandparents favorite fishing place on the St. Mary's river in the UP.
                (That's the upper peninsula of Michigan to those of you'ze southern folks)

                After that honor was completed, my wife asked me what my last wishes were.
                I told her that there was a low spot out in the driveway that needed filling.

                CASO's need to keep perspective, you know.....(It's to the bone...)

                  I am looking forward to seeing the big cars in person some day. Maybe the SW Zone meet? Not so much on the little ones.

                      Yeah, I hope to be able to enjoy looking at them for many decades. I'll be bringing them around when I can. I still have to work a couple more years to pay for all this stuff.....
