My Living Will

Last night, my kids and I were sitting in the living room and I said to them, 'I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle.
If that ever happens, just pull the plug.'

They got up, unplugged the Computer, and threw out my beer.
They are such a**holes...

Just for that, they no should longer get the empty bottles to return for a refund.

Isn't it something how so many of us do now seem to "live" on the computer. If you told me a few years ago I'd be spending so much time online , I'd've called you nuts. ...and here we are!

"Where There's a Will....there's a bunch of greedy relatives."

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ ZZZZ

Granny said, "Johnny, I'll remember you in my will."

When we read the will all it said was, "I remember Johnny."

Question

Here's a question. What happens to that old Airstream after you are gone? Have you done any estate planning for it, or, are you just going to let it fend for it itself and maybe end with someone who wants to use it for a chicken coop.

best estate plan you can have is to spend it while you are alive.this way you dont have to have the greedy gov redistribute whats left.the way this regime is going the airstream might be the most valuable asset they cant get there grubby hands on.

Here lies Johnny's final dream
He's buried deep in his Airstream
Placed at the table sitting up
He holds his favorite coffee cup
RIP
