Here Lies Some Blocher

Weekend Assignment #31: Your Own Epitaph .Write your own, preferably rhyming, epitaph.  Extra credit:  Write a cute epitaph for your favorite loved one, relative, or family pet. Suggestion: keep it light.
Karen did just what she said:/She knew she'd die, and now she's dead./But she worked it out this way:/The writer's gone, but her books stay.



Doubting John expressed surprise/When Heav'n appeared in his dead eyes./He asked the Lord, How can this be?/'Twas Karen sent you up to me. (no, that doesn't mean I murdered him.)




Tuffy oft declared her wish/For our food, not food in her dish./Always adequately fed,/She now begs treats from God instead.

Great work!  And isn't it funny how well this assignment goes with your previous two entries?  I haven't even started thinking about this yet!

Not just your word strike me as stunning but the whole page layout, sky colors, tombstones, words engraved in careful script. Oh how I wish there was a local class on how to do this cool AOL stuff. I can't even figure out how to add pictures into the dang background (instead of just changing the basic colors). Well done! Come take a peek at what I've done sometime?
