My wife let me go to my six-week post-op visit without her today. This meant I got to ask the doctor all sorts of interesting things. For instance, I now know that bones start to calcify and crumble when they reach 1600°F, and that the melting point of stainless steel is 2500°F. This means the metal pieces he used to fuse my collarbone back together will emerge unscathed from my cremation someday.

How fun is that!

You’re all invited to attend my funeral, of course, but please wear an apron and bring your own sifting pan.

  1. Tracy, I’m planning on adding a few Guest Bloggers, and would love to have you participate. This can be a new piece or a reposting of one you’ve already written and feel strongly about. The only parameter is that it more-or-less fit into my “power of Story” theme. What do you think?
