Furniture that keeps on giving!!!

Saying for the Day: Some furniture is worth dieing for or in.

The beautiful end table on the left is from the casket furniture company.
I am thinking of getting one to put in front of my living room couch. Completely finished with handles it costs just a little less than a $1000 . A bit pricey for an end table but not a bad price for a coffin.
This way you get to use it while you are alive and then again when your dead. Your money goes twice as far. What a deal.

In case you want to be cremated the coffin above is fully crematable.

They also make entertainment centers, pool tables, and , believe it or not, couches that turn into coffins when the need arises. Of course the fancier items have a fancier price but quality costs in any business.

What a wonderful world we live in.

Or is it what a wonderful world we die in.

News from Pigeon Falls-the little town in my backyard.
Well the whole town is talking now. The Bishop is leaving on the six o’clock train. He has put the house into the hands of Bud East to sell and is having some men ship all his stuff next week. He and his wife, who came for this purpose worked all yesterday and most of today packing everything up. The reason he gave Pastor Marvel for his leaving was that his wife’s mother is sicker than he knew before so they are going to rent a place near the mother. He doesn’t want to leave the house vacant when he doesn’t know when he will be back. The general feeling in town is that he didn’t like Pigeon Falls and with good reason.
Another day with no dead pigeons. One can hope it is finally over.
The white rabbit was busy today though. He was seen by the railroad station, out by the coaling station, and back of Nancy’s. That should keep people talking for a day or two.
Poor Bud is stuck with the Tieminen place again. Real estate doesn’t move well in Pigeon Falls. This is not one of those places where you buy a house to watch the value go up. Our good Bishop may find himself stuck with that house after all.
Tommy, the undertaker’s kid, got caught skinning dipping in the Crippled Creek Lake. He said it was really hot and he forgot his swim suit. The constable gave him a warning and left him go. If you arrested every kid that skinny dipped we would need a jail.
Toivo is waiting for Bree Linna to come. He says she is a regular Nancy Drew and she will solve their pigeon mystery. In the mean time he is still paying to have the space where the pigeons are dropped watched at night.
So far Robert has had two passengers for his taxi service. Tonight he will have his third when he picks up the Bishop and his wife. Taxi service in Pigeon Falls doesn’t do well. Maybe later when the tourist season with all the celebrations gets going.

$200 for a casket business card holder is a little pricey, I think.

Thanks for the points.

I guess with the table, you would be getting your moneys worth. Its just a way to cash in on you before and after death!!!!

So the Bishop is really leaving, I wonder if it is really because of the towns people.

I hope Bree can figure out the reason for all of the pigeon killings

Dr. John pls tell me it's a joke. Oh i could never consider that purchase. i wouldn't take it free. it's too spooky.

i remember when i first met the wonderful Catch and she had one of her pics. it was the storm cellar/bus and i didn't get it was a joke...i was so worried and wrote all about it.

so i'm going to think (see, i'm learning-ha) that you are kidding and then find that you weren't and i just insulted your purchase (of i hope not).
I am so glad that Toivo is awaiting the mystery solver of our times. Great luck to Bree Linna as she has a huge task ahead.
I think the Bishop is leaving because he got asked about the wife. It happened way too close to the punching event. Nice to see the rabbit is making it's rounds...and skinny dipping, who actually has the guts to do that? gutsy kids alright..
Hope you have yourself a migthy wonderful day. Take care and read you tomorrow.

the table would give me the creeps...

I am so sorry to see the Bishop leave! I dont think the town gave him a chance. I doubt the house will sell with all the pigeon killings and strange things going on in Pigeon Falls right now!

I am terrified of death; always have been and if I had a coffin in my house, I think I would have nightmares. lol

I can't wait until tourist season in Pigeon Falls. I am on August in the archives....slow reader. ;)

That is truly strange. Mayhap some closet vampires would love that kind of furniture.

I couldn't imagine myself having a coffin as an end table. Can you imagine when you take pics near it, then later on everyone is looking at them and says where is it, oh, Dr. John is buried in it now. That to me would be creepy. BUT, to each their own!! I personally enjoy more uplifting furniture =) deaths. I hope Bree can crack the case! The bishop can't leave, who will the towns people gossip about?
Take care!
