“The Cemetery Party”
Late Saturday afternoon I went to the cemetery to place flowers on the grave site of my dear friends, John and Alice.
As I walked back to the car I was remembering all the fun times John, Alice and I use to have at the Saturday night parties.
We would no longer share in this type of fun. However, I could just picture in my mind John and Alice at a Welcome Cemetery Party. John would do a stand-up comedy act like this:
There are two kinds of pedestrians: the quick and the dead. Guess which one I am.
It’s not the fall that kills you; it’s the sudden stop at the end.
Whenever I feel blue, I stay that way because I can no longer breathe.
My enemies didn’t attend my funeral, but they sent a letter saying they approve of it.
Even though I walked back to my car alone, I felt good because John had managed to lift my spirits once again!
