The courier didn’t ask questions, just delivered it as requested, being paid handsomely for his time and service. He didn’t hang around either.
It was just a label. Nobody needed to know what……… or who.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Hehe! I’ve never considered how cremains were sent – especially when “home” is far away from their place of demise…

  7. What or who – how intriguing!

  8. He’ll never have to take the witness stand with that attitude.

    My Inlaws had Grandma delivered fed ex this was… It’s just not right…sends shivers just thinking about it. When my mom died, and she went to university, they asked if I wanted it fed ex’d. I shivered at the thought and almost gagged. I may have had, and still do, issues with that thing that called itself my mother, but shipping someone that way… No! Never! It’s…it’s… it’s inhumane.

  10. Dale says:

    I think there are some things that are better left undisturbed…

  11. Very nice … and mysterious. I love it!
