Weekend Assignment..

This week's Weekend Assignment is another reader suggestion, this time from isckwootton, and just in time for Halloween:

Write your own, preferably rhyming, epitaph.  For example,

Here lies Jed,
He fell out of bed.

Extra credit:  Write a cute epitaph for your favorite loved one, relative, or family pet. Suggestion: keep it light. You might want them to continue being your favorite loved one, relative, or family pet. Nothing is worse than having Fido dissing you over some silly words on a gravestone.

Here is my stab at it:

Here lies Val
She was a happy gal,
'Til the truck mowed her over
Now she lies with the clover.

And for the extra credit, I chose to write about my cat, Honey:

Here lies Honey-Honey
She was a beloved pet,
'Til the day her owner didn't see her
And a couch upon her did set.


  1. Know it is a bit of fun Val, but count me out of this one. You could say I would be very superstitious about doing something like that. Each to his own.  Happy Halloween.

  2. Val, this made me smile!!
    Here's mine...
    Here lies Sara-Jane
    She tripped over a drain
    Banged her head
    And wound up dead
    Now she'll never eat chocolate again!!!

  3. The one about the cat cracked me up. Whacky assignment but people are coming up with some funny stuff.


  4. Here lies "Momma"  (me)
    She needed a rest
    Too tired from cleaning,
    She escaped the mess.

  5. Everyone has been so creative with this assignment.  I especially loved the one you wrote about your cat. you made me laugh.  I think I almost killed my cat that way ... lucky for those 9 lives!


  6. Very good.  But I don't want to think about you dead Val, lol. -Krissy

  7. Great rhyme. Poor honey, hopefuly she can cash in one of 9 lives and learn to dodge falling couches. Tee hee. Have a most awesome week! Looks to be another hectic one.

  8. Here lies Dave:
    He lived in a cave
    He should have had a shave
    Poor hairy Dave.

  9. here lies Jules my mate
    for her own funeral she was late!
    But all her friends will walk a mile
    Just to remember her big smile :)

  10. LOL!
