    This is related because I saw it on the way back from the aforementioned wood find. Big up the photo and look in the back of the white pickup. There must have been a story here, because the procession had the normal cars for the family and was a mile long with lots of very fancy cars, so the person was NOT a poor folk. This was in Muleshoe yesterday! That's about 70 miles northwest of Lubbock.

    Congrats on the wood find...looks like you're set!

    As for the guy in the pick-up, seems like funerals are getting more 'creative'. We had a story in the local paper not too long ago about a guy who was a lifelong Case tractor dealer. His procession was a parade of antique tractors.

    I doubt this was a case of "creative". The guy was more than likely a thrifty old farmer who had lived around here all his life and had probably told his wife a 1000 times NOT to go to expense for his funeral. He probably told her that when he died, just drag him off to the turnrow an' kick some dirt over him and that would be plenty. She probably only got him a casket because the law might require it, I don't know. But since there were no funeral home cars, I suspect the service was at his church and his church family did the buryin'. That's not unusual out here. I've seen more than one funeral that was like this. Folks out here live fairly simple lives and prefer to die that way.
