Perhaps a mobile phone would be handy to have in your pocket when you're buried?

if you can get a signal

And recharging might be a problem...

Definitely a close-up. :mrgreen:

This is getting macabre...

I'm not really all that fixed on my death - but I have seriously considered what might be likely to happen when I die. After all, people like me who live on their own, with not many friends and no family anywhere near - it makes you think, doesn't it? I don't really want the neighbours to become aware of it once the smell gets unbearable...

Doofa,you're very funny,and I don't mean that sarcastically either! :iconbiggrin: Personally I want to be cremated and my ashes sprinkled somewhere nice like a woodland or other place of nature.

Laughing so hard Doofaloofa! I want a cardboard coffin when I go, although it might be cheaper to buy a new fridge and just use the box.....

I'd need one of those American, super-size fridge freezers for my size box...

We have one in the garden. Along with three acorns - although there's no sign of sprouting yet.

I'm just wondering whether they might not usually be burrowed too deep for sprouting seeds to emerge? But a good idea otherwise!
