    We had a funeral for a neighbor’s dead puppy once. We buried him under one of the orange trees in the nearby orchard. When his parents go upset about us burying it, none of us could remember which tree. It was a big orchard and we weren’t really allowed to be there.

    A dead kitty showed up one day at the edge of the road. We took it out to the nearby woods.
    Then the owner kid showed up a day or two later and after asking if we’d seen a cat, demanded to know where. Unfortunately, we didn’t mark the spot.

    Somehow, I can’t help but think ahead of Farley’s funeral.
    You beat me to it.

    Fortunately, that won’t be for another eight or nine years.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    I have always been interested in bugs and snakes and creepy-crawly things. The only thing I don’t like to catch and examine in my hands are spiders, but they fascinate me just the same. When I was a kid, some of my insect “pets” succumbed to my examinations, and I would create small but elaborate burial ceremonies for them. When one of my garter snakes died, I buried him in a long, flat tie box, and gift wrapped him before I put him into the ground. It was the least I could do.

    Had one or two pet burials when I was young. Always solemn occasions.

    Should have buried it at Pet Cemetery…Stephen King.

    Now that we are grown, our deceased pets are in urns in a lovely corner display shelf with pictures of them while in life.

    Somehow I do not imagine that Lizzie will be this upbeat at Farley’s funeral.

    Sincere thanks for your daily posting of “Lynn’s Notes” to this board. It adds to the strip.
    I’d ask you to leave it alone, without appending your opinion to the artist’s comment, but I already know how you feel about that.

    Thus, the birth of the funeral industry.

    I also enjoy your posting of Lynn’s Notes, and especially when you include your comments.
    When you share your personal thoughts relating to its theme, you really connect others to enjoy the overall scene as well as your feelings.

    Reminds me of the Irish custom where children on a special saint’s day kill a wren go around singing “The wren, the wren the king of all birds, give us a penny to bury the wren.” They take the money begged for and buy treats for the wake for the wren after they bury it.

    All I ask is that the personal comment is posted separately from the artist’s remarks. Except I’m not asking that, because I know that’s impossible for Night-Gaunt. I think he would post his comment directly on top of the strip if he could.
