    Being Dead

    So we had an experience here on the Farm that was as close to being dead as I want to experience.

    Given such an experience, who do you contact? Do you have a protocol?

    How do you announce death?

    We're all gonna die, and leave behind someone who makes the announcement.

    Thoughts?

    Dial 911, . . . let them take it from there.

    May God bless,

    I have a will. I don't care who tells who that I'm dead.
    BTW, I'm glad no dead people had to be announced at your farm. How everyone is ok.

    Usually a medical examiner or their appointee will arrive on the scene. If it is an untimely or suspicious death EMS will contact an investigator. Here in my part Tennessee the EMS supervisors are tasked with representing the M.E. and patrol officers will consult. If the EMS supervisor and Patrol supervisor concur that everything appears natural they will contact the deceased persons doctor who will sign off on the death certificate and the family will request a funeral home to come remove the body. Everyone should have their affairs in order.

    Dealing with death is part of dealing with life. My affairs are in order, My wife will get everything and she will tell those who would care after her and her boyfriend return from their trip around the world.

    My will is detailed. Assets, debts, where, service participants, music, who to call, etc.... My kids only need to sit down and spend a few minutes reading several pages of typed instructions. I have left nothing up for interpretation or uncertainty.

    Whatever is done with me or for me or against me after I've croaked, . . . ain't no big deal.

    My wife and son get what I had, . . .

    I'm going to be walking the streets of glory, . . .

    It's all good.

    May God bless,

    Mrs Inor gets all my stuff when I am dead. Mrs Inor, being one of those artsy-fartsy types, I'm sure she will make some kind of shrine out of my body and that is fine.

    In the meantime, I have been considering being dead for a year for tax purposes.

    Years ago I gave all my money (every invested nickel), knives, my guns, and three pairs of "never worn" boots to my wife.

    I retained two pairs of crappy jeans, my favorite boots, my EDC knives, and my EDC pistol. I also have a 25 year old Ford F-150, but my wife doesn't want that, it has a clutch.

    In reality, my total worth is about 1,500 dollars.

    Now this might seem foolhardy to many of you. However, it was intensely 'freeing' for me. I've worn crappy jeans and boots since I was five years old. The defensive devices were kept only because they were functional implements after years of use.

    I need nothing more. If my wife gives me a handful of singles on Monday, I usually give them back to her--unspent--on Friday. I no longer seek to collect everything I touch.
