    And I don't have a lawyer or an Executor.

    It doesn't matter, I guess. Someone's going to do quite well, maybe off the books, cleaning up the abandoned stuff after I'm hauled off.

    I suppose if I think it's coming, I could hand-write a directive telling whoever comes to contact the VA, to have the Navy dispose of me. It's better than using my estate to buy an expensive funeral that no one will attend, or a costly grave that no one will see.
    It is wise to take care of our demise, especially if we have family. I have instructed my loved ones to cremate me and not spend too much on the container my ashes are put in.......doesn't need to be fancy. I will be buried next to my husband in Ft Snelling, MN where he went into the military. I'm fine with that whenever and however my death happens. It is well with my soul.

    They are talking about shutting down gun and ammo sales too.

    I'll bet a lot of people are thinking like Quark, look for suicide rates to climb.

    They've always got a plan.

    And the more the plans fail, the more the planners plan.

    I'm old. I've done a lot. I've lived an excellent life. I have no reason to look back and wonder what if I had done those exciting things. I did them. I think I still have more to do, but if not.......no regrets. This covid thing is just one more experience/ adventure for me. I can handle it. I've handled much worse.... When I lived in Italy we were told our water had cholera in it and we had to haul water for everything. None of us got cholera. So. I wasn't afraid then and I'm not afraid now.

    Think of the EOTWAWKI books you may have read. Lucifer's Hammer. The Stand. Earth Abides, maybe - which Steve Notalent King, knocked off to write Stand.

    But all of them had a few bit characters who did that - killed themselves, or drank themselves into a coma, or worked on a project to benefit others, ignoring medical issues that could have been cared for with time.

    The cover-jacket of Lucifer's Hammer had a blurb on the back: "The lucky ones went first..."

    Yep. We'd have to say byebye to guns for sure. I just don't think Biden will win.
