Anyone ever built their own coffin?
I keep thinking about building my own since I have noticed that I've ceased to become any younger lately. In fact I've completely given up on the idea of getting younger so that day of reckoning is getting closer and closer. The problem isn't so much building it or even the cost of materials (pine), but where the heck would I store the darned thing in the meantime? I suppose I could always make it into a temporary dining table or even a coffee table. Any ideas? I suppose I could use it as a not so comfy bed to sleep in, but the Mrs. probably wouldn't go for trying to squeeze in with me at night. She's a bit wider than I am anyway.
I figure I have about another 15-20 years before I really have to consider such a contraption, but I don't wanna wait too long until the old muscles and joints no longer want to cooperate with this plan.
Check that time frame..with the pandemic ongoing I may decide that I have at best another 10 years before I have to decide. I could just plea poverty and opt for potters field and a cardboard box.. Once I am no longer it really doesn't matter to me. My kids might have other plans..
I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
Marty or Marty Farty if you feel mean.
