    Wow, wonder how much they were asking for it.
    I'd be tempted to buy it........the caskets at the funeral home are so high!

    That's even stranger than what some people down the highway have for sale. They have 2 heavy duty stainless steel monkey cages like what are used in a laboratory. I stopped and looked but they want several hundred $$ apiece for them. They are worth the money but I don't have that kind of money.

    I have wondered where on earth they got them.

    In the words of my brother, as we were choosing a casket for my Mother and bought a metal one very similar to the one in the picture.

    Ashes to Ashes, dust to dust, I hope this casket I bought won't rust. :angel:

    My sister used to have some neighbors who were HUGE Grateful Dead fans. Every time they were in town, the neighbors decorated their house and front yard, right down to the casket they put out front.

    So in her old neighborhood, it would just look like the Grateful Dead was in town!

    I remember in Mother Earth News, in the 70s, maybe, an article encouraging everyone to build thier casket at home and then use it for storage until it is needed... it had directions for buidling it and sample room arrangements for using it in the meantime.... they even had long term food storage plans for food that could be stored in it...

    My mother really liked the idea... she didnt do it and is now in her 80s. At the time, I kind of felt it was a bit too prepared...

    I remember that article. Scary. I had forgotten about it till you brought it up. Guess I didn't burn all my good brain cells, I can still remember silly stuff from the 70's when reminded!
