As our forefathers roll over continuously in their graves loike pigs on a spit, I wonder what happened to the Good Ole’ USA That drafted me (think conscription) in the early 60’s and left me hanging like a redheaded step-child, out to die. I mean dry..Naw former not latter.Then there is a bunch of stuff I’m not supposed to mention!! Well FTA!! You can read about it in my book, including my favorite “Knock, Knock” Joke! Like Charlie Hefton used to do!

    I know the expression, “Rolls over in his grave”, implies that a dead person is not resting well. I get that. But it does not alter realty, which is simply this: Rolling around in one’s grave is a luxury.

    Especially in a coffin. It can get awful lonely down there, for eternity on top of it. On one side the whole while? Please. Usually they put you on your back, that’s the only method I’ve seen.

    But it should not be difficult to install a lever at a burial site that extends by wire to the coffin below and which can be accessed by loved ones who have paid a fee to turn the handle once a month, or however many times the lease allows – a lever that activates a switch inside the coffin that flips the mattress over quickly to give the occupant a different, refreshing position. Side positions would also be available, not just front and back.

    When you’re dead you will want to move. Believe me, I know. It’s an incredible, unshakable urge. If I’m in a grave, alive or dead, moving is my prime concern. And to be moved by the gentle hands of loved ones and friends who care enough to show up to roll the lever now and then – man, that alone is something to be thankful for. My spirit is doing cartwheels just thinking about it.
