What do you want to be buried with?*

Like our pagan ancestors of old, you too can be buried with whatever you want, brooches, swords, tools of daily use, symbols of your life - whatever you want (but please: check seek advice from an attorney if you really want to ensure your burial requests are binding on your personal representative).

What I want to be buried with:

1. My TOSHIBA Libretto U105 Laptop http://img179.imageshack.us/img179/7057/businesstraveller8zf.jpg

(it's the size of a video cassette - I can carry it in my winter coat pocket)

2. My Hasselblad 500 C/M Camera with 80mm Zeiss T* Lens

3. My 1955 Crown Graphic Camera with 135mm Wollensak lens (all made in New York!)

4. and my spring wound Double-Super-8 Quarz Super 1-M Film Camera

5. My brown cords and maybe my white/cream superlightwool suit that I used to wear before in Miami I went into witness protection.

So, which lens are you going to use to take a picture of God?

A shovel, GPS unit, and a cell phone.

Really...:p


tools of daily use

I suppose a Blackberry, a computer, and a metrocard with only one fare on it to cross the "turnstile of styx". Also, some sort of conversation starter to aid in hitting on historical bettys.

Don't plan to be buried ... gonna leave all my stuff to family and friends

(although that may not make them as happy as they might think).

My drawing pad and pencil, and a pair of drumsticks and my favorite cymbal.

Ed, I don't know if I will be able to operate either of these beasts at that age (or condition). They require fully manual operation (and a good pair of eyes). Heck maybe I should take my Nikon 35mm AF SLR with me as well. Or maybe Zippy is correct about no photos in Heaven.

KZNYC2K, just make sure you leave your best drawings behind...
