The urns are in a closet now, out of sight.

Good to know about the Baileys!

A little surfing and I ordered up something better than a absinthe spoon, 2 bubble glasses and a grill.

We be stylin' -

They look nice expecially the glasses. For a time Lucid had spoons and glasses in holiday packaging. Their both very lightweight and inexpensive.

I do not have a bottle of Absinthe. Almost bought one once, but then thought that ouzo and pastis have a similar flavor and will have to do.

Ugh! While my bottle is in a closed cabinet and not in sunlight, I do not drink enough of it so the 2-year limit is surely exceeded. And 25C is 77F, which is cool inside temperature by the local standard. I keep my thermostat at 78F because any lower would leave me with less money for booze.

The real issue is that you just don't drink enough Baileys. I never have to worry about an opened bottle hanging around more than a month or two.

I do not drink a lot of liqueur, but more of the harder spirits like Cognac, and gin. I should go look at that Baileys bottle now, and see if I should finish it off.

About the deceased, one year after the cremation of my father-in-law, we had a family gathering up in our high-country home to scatter the ashes. The lot is on a hillside with native evergreen trees, so it felt appropriate. Following some advice, we also broke the urn and scattered its fragments.

When I die, I will instruct my children to do the same for me.

You might want to do that before you die.

You don't think when I am dying, I can set up the texting message before hand and just hit "send" when I am exhaling?

Anyway, my wife will surely survive me and she will take care of my ashes. No problem.

PS. It's not that I care about my ashes. Rather, my instruction will save them the trouble of knowing what to do with it.

Nice renovation of the etagere. I'm sure you will enjoy it's new purpose.

You can decide what is appropriate to do with the ashes sometime in the future. My uncle's ashes rested in a box on a shelf for nearly 5 years to honor my aunt's wishes that I wait until she was gone. Their ashes were placed together at the beach per their written wishes in their estate plan. It is nice to know what is wanted by the deceased.

Nice repurpose, and for a good cause!

Is it top heavy? Would hate to see all those valuables broken...

No no. That would be a form of alcohol abuse.
