This happened at work...

I have truly seen EVERYTHING! I work for non-profit organization. We see it ALL! People donate EVERYTHING! Guns, poop, drugs, the kitchen sink, bathtubs, you name it, I've seen it. Someone even donated a live cat and her kittens! I have always said I was waiting for someone to donate a dead body. I kid you not. Well, someone donated cremains (the ashes of someone cremated). I have truly seen it all now!

Missed you, Lamby.

If you lived in a cold weather climate, I'd recommend that you use the ashes on icy walkways (and driveways) to improve traction.

However since you do not, instead I advise mixing the ashes into a clay-like substance which can be shaped into voodoo dolls and sold to displaced Haitians.

i once found
a nice vase full
of ash at a garage sale

it wasn't so much the ash that put me off as that glass eye...

So...who's in charge of marjking a price?
I have ...uh...lemmee count...
53 cents and a golf tee.

Little Lamb said...

Puggy poo, You missed me? Awww, how swet. I missed you, too. Maybe I should kidnap you and put you in abox and box you in.

Your idea of making voodoo dolls seems scary, but interesting. Will you protect me from any evil spirits should the need arise?

/t. Are you sure they weren't cigarette ashes and someone wanted to keep an eye on you?

Boney, the store manager takes care of the prices. You'll have to bargain with him.

/t. said...

well, they didn't
taste like cigarette ashes

Little Lamb said...

You ate the ashes? What did they taste like?

/t. said...

chicken

foam said...

are there bones in it?

Little Lamb said...

I don't know. We didn't open the box.

foam said...

why not?

Little Lamb said...

That's a good question. I don't know. We just didn't. Maybe because we wanted to keep the ashes intact.

boneman said...

I'm not sure I get it.
You're keeping the ashes intact?
What happened to the box you were keeping them in?
I mean...put them in a box or put them in a tact...wait. What IS a "tact"?
maybe someone should go down to the ocean and set Mr. Breddlemeier loose in the seas.
(You didn't know that I knew his name, did you?)
Mr. Breddlemeier always did love the sea, but, he was deathly afraid of...
Sharks.
And, not just any kind of shark....noooo...

BBQ carrying sharks.
Everywhere they went, they would carry a BBQ grill with them.
Waiting...

Looking....


For that perfect BBQ sauce.

Little Lamb said...

No, no, no, you misunderstand me. Keeping the ashes intact would involve not opening the container they were in.

I have to be careful of anyone carrying bbq grills. If I see anyone like that I'll run the the other way.

Mariana Soffer said...

Your life is very interesting my friend. I care to know that those things happen to someone I relate to.
But you know this is here and in many other cases:Reality is weirder than fiction
Take care and be well

Little Lamb said...

Thanks! I never looked at it that way.

Fat People
Are Hard To BBQ

Little Lamb said...

Have you tried?

/t. said...

that would
be inhumane :)

Got some more ashes for you, but they're in my grill and they aren't of animal origin... Grilled up some turkey roasts and have two more that I need to smoke tomorrow.

Little Lamb said...

Things cooked on the grill taste so good!

/t. said...

hey LL,
where did you
want to put your quilt?

here in a post or on the side...

× × ×

/t.

Little Lamb said...

On the side.

/t. said...

ok,

i need to resize
the image to fit there

do you know how to install it,
or do you need me to do it for you?

Little Lamb said...

I'd like you tom do it for me, or you can give me simple instructions.

/t. said...

ok,

it will be the same
as your blogger awards
from dianne -- if you want
me to do it then you'll need
to give me access to your blog

either way is good

/t.

Little Lamb said...

I had a hard time doing that. I even had a hard time putting the award I got from Boneman on here, so I gave up.

If I make you an author can you do it that way?

/t. said...

i can only
post blogs entries
as an author -- you will need
to make me an administrator to access your template, i think -- i'm trying to find out how that works...

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Let me try to do it.

The only way to give you access to my blog, to my knowledge is to give you my password and email address.

/t. said...

ok,
give it a try

if you need my help,
then you can make me an author,
but then you'd have to grant me admin permission (this does not involve giving up your admin privilege or your password or email)

/t.

Little Lamb said...

I tried it, but it didn't work. After I make you an author, how do I make you an administrator?

The Phosgene Kid said...

Poop is always funny.

/t. said...

LL,

you need to go
into your blog settings,
click on permissions, and then
grant administrator privileges to me -- i need this to access your blog template and install your quilt

Little Lamb said...

Phos, and smelly.

/t., done.

/t. said...

LL, done

you can remove me now

× × ×

/t.

Little Lamb said...

I like that. Thank you. I may remove you or not. But not just yet.

dianne said...

Gosh, so sorry Lil Lamb, somehow I missed this post.
I think you have seen just about everything, why would anyone donate poop, a live cat and her kittens or cremains? There are some weird people in this world.

I see you have your beautiful quilt from /t., it looks lovely over there on your sidebar, it goes well with the pale green decor.

xoxoxo ♡

Little Lamb said...

S'okay, I don't post much. After the cremains came in, I've seen it ALL! I don't understand why they do the things they do.

Thank you for liking my quilt. It is nice. I like it, too!

dianne said...

No I didn't mean that you don't post much, I meant that I missed this post in dashboard or I noticed it but forgot to comment.
I was pre-occupied on the 4th, it was my birthday, you will have to excuse me Lamby as I'm getting old and forgetful!

xoxoxo ♡

Little Lamb said...

Happy belated birthday! I get forgetful, too, sometimes.

dianne said...

Thank you Lil Lamb! xoxoxo ♡
