Death and taxes

I know that we are supposed to plan for the future, and that the only sure thing is death and taxes.

During our Australian road trip last year I came across a grave . . . .

The ‘problem’ with this grave is that fortunately it is empty – at the moment!

It appears that the grave owner has started to carve his own epitaph on the head stone because (so I was told)Β he doesn’t trust his relatives to spend the money to mark his grave properly.

Over the years he has saved his cash and added a little every so often to his head stone.

As you see it is still unfinished.

Currently empty, so I have been told.

Β I am not sure I would like to invest in the future in the same way asΒ Mr Gray.

Traveled a great deal - about 70 countries - first foreign country I suppose was Wales, which was only 80 miles away from where I was born. Visited each Continent, except Antarctica, and I doubt that it is on my bucket list - too cold. I love Asian food, Australian wine & British beer & trying to entertain by writing.

    1. I have heard that – but I don’t think I’ll bother investing in a coffin – I’d rather die on a cruise ship and be part of the entertainment as I slide overboard . . . .splash! :-o)
