Taste of Bone

RDP Wednesday – GLEAN

Bones are porous  and that means that if you touch one to your tongue it will stick.

It’s science. I learned it from a book about forensic anthropology by William Maples and when the opportunity presented itself, I tried it.

It turned out to be true and it wasn’t as gross as touching your tongue to the business end of a 9 volt battery- don’t ask.

So here’s to you my bone licking friends in Forensic Anthropology and Archaeology – because  I thought those of us from Funeral Services were all alone on the odd side.

That’s okay, it was getting a little predictable at our end of the table anyways.

For the rest of you here are some pictures of bones- and I guess you could ask yourself:

Do I dare?

The Pumpkin’s Carver

I want to carve a pumpkin

I want to bring it to life

I’ll give it a face, a smile and eyes

and a mouth so it can speak

and when you come to my door and cry out Trick or Treat

my pumpkin will

scream in terror

‘RUN! SHE’S CRAZY AND SHE HAS A KNIFE…RUN FOR YOU LIFE!!!”

Hail To The King, Baby

The son of Seti,  he is considered to be  be the  greatest of all the Pharaohs-Ramesses II ( Ancient Egyptian: “Ra is the one who bore him” )

Pharaoh  by the time he was 20, he reigned for over 66 years and died at the age of 90.

As was the custom,  Ramesses was mummified so that each night his BA would recognize and be able to rejoin his KA ( earthly self ) and he would be continue his life in the next world.

Today I am here to take the position that Ramesses achieved  his goal- he does indeed live again- he has a passport and he has traveled this Earth by earthly means.

Hail to the King, Baby.
