    Odd things you see walking down the street

    Advertisements
    I was walking down the street tonight in a small coastal town when I saw a group of maybe 20-30 people exit the back side of a building into a parking lot. They looked like they were having a really good time, laughing, hooping and hollering like they'd been in a serious party mood. Since most of the businesses that were open on that street at that time were bars, I assumed that's what they came out of. The people coming out of the bars though didn't act as happy as that group. They looked really happy. As I continued on down the street, I saw the sign on the opposite side of the building. It was a funeral home! There was no hearse or anything parked, and it was almost 10pm so I guess it might've been a viewing.

    I once saw a car where the entire front end was made of bondo. Does that count?

    - I don't see it as being that odd, I am a big fan of the approach of making it a time of celebration of the person's life and joyful activity vs. mournful sadness.

    I hope that is how my wake/funeral go down. I remember when my Uncle Steve died, it was one hell of a party, everyone laughed over stories about stupid crazy shit he'd done or good times they had. They celebrated his life rather than mourning the loss of it.

    I can see that. When I said "odd", I meant as in unusual to see, not commenting on whether it's a good or bad thing. It seemed like a pretty good celebration.

    I live in Portland, so let's see, people walking their 200 lbs pet pigs downtown, man on a unicycle wearing a kilt and a Darth Vader mask playing the bagpipes, and a car decked out to survive the apocalypse parked at the grocery store.

    Sounds like an interesting place. One of my neighbors has a survivalist type vehicle.
