Grumpy Goers hates “goodbye” grog…

July 20, 2014

red wineOh dear, oh dear, Peter…you’ve really gone too far this  time. So people should not be allowed to raise a glass of  Skillogalee or whatever to the memory of the dear departed!

What a wowser.

Some of the best funerals I have been to, and they’re becoming more frequent these days, for obvious reasons, have ended with risible reminiscences washed down with  a toast to the dear departed.In one spectacular example, every available level space in the room sported  glasses half-filled with the absentee’s favourite red  tipple…

Wake up, Peter. . Wakes are a time for celebration of a person’s life. Get one! Toast the departed. Relive a host of memories. Enjoy!!!

And stop being grumpy…that’s MY act.

(P.s. I have to declare an interest.   I am a member of the executive board at Centennial Park Cemetery, the object of your objection).

    Goers believes that Cuba is some sort of tropical paradise. Enough said!

    I’ve had it written into my will that there is to be a big party to celebrate my life. Take that Goers!
