Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie

Y’all can scatter my ashes anywhere along the second sandbar in front of Fin Family Moominbeach and please give an extra shake onto the seat of any real estate developer’s bulldozer that might be in the vicinity.

I know that some day, I will might be faced with moving out of my beloved Landfill into some kind of other living situation. It’ll be a looooonnnnnngggg time from now but it’ll happen. If I don’t get felled by a crazed seagull on Fin Family Moominbeach. And that might be a better fate. Just leave me for the carrion birds to pick over, won’tcha please.

I don’t want to have to move to a place where I don’t know anyone and have to make new friends again. With people that I might like but can’t easily escape from just by driving off to my own home, er landfill. The landfill that has a basement and a back yard.

Speaking of driving, I do not want to ever depend on someone else to drive me anywhere. Driving is one of the things I love to do the most and I have owned my own vee-hickle since just about forever.

I don’t ever want somebody else moving my “stuff” to another place and having to decide for me what needs to be thrown out.

My thoughts about this are a bit incoherent tonight. But, since I am still a strong, independent kayak-type woman, this morning, the GG and I parked the Ninja at the top of Bird Hills and hiked that park and all over the Barton Dam trails and tracks. Click here or on the pic for more. The GG gets credit for at least half the pics.

    Nature’s patterns are incredible and incredibly fascinating! The frost crystals… ripples in the water… branches/leaves/etc superimposed against more of the same. I say it again: Incredible!

    Stunning photos! (Made me feel cold, though! It sure does look like winter in your neck of the woods!) I agree with Dog Mom; nature’s patterns really are astounding.

    Beauty! Ah nature! Thanks for the photos. They remind us that we all benefit from nature’s majesty. And what camera are you using?
