What happens when you die?

Sitting here late at night thinking about this.  Not Spiritually, because my hope is that  my soul takes flight and I will eventually see those who have died in the FAITH. 

Not talking about that. I am talking about your stuff.  What happens to it? The stuff you have loved.  The stuff that you thought the world of. Like my tools!!!! Like my paintings, I have some that equal Van-Go! LOL.


(Those two little buildings on the left have my ‘stuff’ in them.)

Do you have any hidden secrets? Some folk do not care what is known once they are dead. Like the guy who killed his girlfriend 30 years ago and they just found her in a storage shed in his freezer.  Now, no one is going to find that kind of secret in my stuff. LOL.

I do have many letters to my sons that have been written and never mailed, if anyone looks in this computer.

Once separated from my family and when I was drinking too much, I wrote my predictions of my sons futures, It is somewhere in my stuff.  If I remember right I was completely wrong.(surprise). I don’t know were that is, but if someone looks enough they will find it.

I have a very dear friend, who at her husbands death,  found a lot of money in his wallet. She remembered when he kept saying we can’t afford this and that. That was a pleasant surprise at a sad time (reckon he planned that?). Sherry will find a little money hid back, but not enough to be real happy about.

My sister Shirl declares she is gonna be sanitized when anyone goes thru her stuff 50 years from now. hahaha. She is probably right!

I wonder if anyone can start my old tiller, it is temperamental.  The lawnmower is the same. Our bank account allows for a free safety deposit box. It ain’t filled with $100 bills. but it does have a few silver coins in it I think. By few, I mean 5 or 10. hahaha.

I am assuming it is normal to think about death at this  age, 72(3). I don’t think either son reads this blog, but if you do there will be some surprise at my death but not much.

Funny, this has come up, because  I just told my lover that I am the happiest guy in the world (and I am). If I were to die tonight, they would have to break my face to remove the smile.

One of my favorite folks always says ‘Life is Good’!  You know what? It is!

Thanks for coming by the log.

NIte Shipslog!


The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!  (very true)

The 1954 Belmont, I don’t think it ever made production, but it should have.

Sobering thought but somewhat funny post. Thom and I tease each other about whoever dies first gets out of the job of getting rid of most of our 'stuff' How did we accumulate so much? And I don't think there are any secrets hidden! Anyways, in the end it really won't matter - what matters is if you believe in Christ and are heading the right direction.

When I die, I won't care what happens to the stuff as long as the kids don't fight with one another over my "stuff". See...I've got two CB radios, Two ham radios, barrels of spare parts for repairing radios, etc and etc, that are treasures to me - but trash to the kids and wife. So really - it doesn't matter. Frances can have it all - if she wants it...but I'm doubting she wants it.

I think all of us need to make sure there are no skeletons in the closet we don't want found after we pass on. I know I got a file I need to shred of things, better get to it sooner than later!! It is good to say Jack, that if you should die tonight, and one (especially Sherry) hopes that doesn't happen that you would die with a smile on your face and the love of a wonderful woman! That is an accomplishment in itself!

I have to admit that some of the people I hear saying Life Is Good seem to be trying to talk themselves into it. ~Mary

I don't have any money hid. I decided one time
to get some extra money and put it up so I
would not have to go and have a check cashed. I forgot about it and found it later. Not a good idea for me. I sometime think it would be
wonderful to get rid of everything but the essentials. That would be wonderful but who
can do it, I guess I will just live with my



No hidden secrets here. I'm an open book. My daughters have told me they are going to sell most of my prized possessions when I'm gone, they don't want them. This makes me sad. So I guess bits and pieces of my life will end up in the hands of strangers. Such is life. Great post. Take care.

There is nothing of value here..nothing hidden away either...mostly just a lot of stuff that no one wants. I think when I go the kids will get some dumpsters and shovel everything into them...I enjoy my stuff and that's what is important . When I'm gone I won't care. No secrets are hidden away in the closet either. I've led a simple life, but it has been good for sure. It still is too.

I haven't thought much about what would happen to my stuff I will just let the kids fight over what they want in the house if anything and give the rest to Take care. Jean
