M&M - I have only these words for you - from my Great-Grammie McGraw - Alice K Martin (1878-1967)
When I have left this mortal shore And mosey 'round the earth no more, Don't cry, don't weep, don't sob ~ I may have struck a better job.
Don't go and buy a large bouquet For which you find it hard to pay. If you have roses, well, bless your soul Just pin one in my button-hole While I am here and well today. Don't wait until I've gone away.
I've no doubt that you will be treasured and felt inside the hearts of the many you have touched with you kindness and sincerity. Your words will last long after we've become one with nature. Though, I hope you're not planing on leaving me for quite some time. Sad, touching poem, my dear...
Not that my opinion means much...but, you're right Lovey and the rest of you....I can't imagine this place with out this man. He's kind of an icon here...I love to tease and bother him.....(and Longjohn), but he's gone off into never never y2k land, but there's few people on this earth that can reach into the depths of someone's heart..into their very soul like this guy can.....But, I kinda think he'll be around for quite sometime however....long after I'm dead and gone anyhow.....(which, with my temperment and mouth could be as soon as tomorrow), but, he'll be killin' roaches and makin' rhymes for a long long time me thinks...I will miss him, and all the rest of the crazies here....I just hope one of his employees doesn't mistake him for a palmetto bug and sprays the hell outta him....(I have heard he's been spotted in a few roach hotels however)...Or was that Roach infested hotels?....(Where he probably has the contract).....Yall be good to him now ya hear? He's really a pretty good old (very old) punkster.. yanno....despite what nature's done to him.......
