Here is today’s Five for Friday yes I am posting early but will not have a computer for the rest of the day.

Off to a funeral

Only a 4 hour drive

Can't find knee high stockings in fuller figure lately...........annoyed wearing last pair today

No eye-shadow just in case I cry

I wonder how many more funerals there will be this year

  1. I hate funerals. I've told everyone that I want a wake and that's it. I want everyone to laugh and enjoy a gathering like we do now instead of being all sad and down. Safe travels.

  4. Cremate me, then have a celebration of my life. Laugh, tell stories, and remember me for who I was. Hate funerals.

  5. I don't like them either Jo-Anne. Not a bit. And dressing for them is always so difficult in choice because you do want to pay your respects. Sometimes clothes don't cooperate or we can't find those we need. (((HUGS)))

  9. I'm sorry you lost someone you cared about. It's never easy. I have a friend in Hospice right now and every time someone calls, I fear it's bad news about her. Travel safely and come back soon.

  10. Dearest Jo-Anne,
    Funerals are part of life and for every birth there will be a funeral...
    When I drive long distance I never even use eye makeup as it can run into your eye and annoy you.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

    1. Yes funerals a part of life and have to say I know I am lucky to have reached the age of 52 and only lost a few people but I know the older I get the more people I will lose

  11. My condolences. No shadow or mascara if there are to be tears. Dark glasses work, though.

  12. Hi, dear Jo-Anne! On the first day of every year I wonder what the year will bring, knowing that inevitably there will be funerals ahead. In the 12 month cycle that follows any one of us might lose a close family member, relative or friend. There will also be the annual harvest of great leaders, scientists, novelists, movie idols, television stars and other iconic figures that influenced our lives. Funerals are solemn occasions, but they help us to press the reset button, get our priorities straight and give thanks for every day of life we are given.
