In Preperation for Thursday

Here is to a long life and a happy one
A good death and a fast one
A pretty girl and an honest one
A cold pint and another one

My favorite birthday toast…
We drink to your coffin. May it be built from the wood of a hundred year old oak tree that I shall plant tomorrow.

My favorite wedding toast..
May all your ups and downs be between the sheets.

May you be in heaven a full half hour
before the devil knows your dead.

Think it might have been modified from this verse….

May you have food and raiment, a soft pillow for your head. May you be forty years in heaven before the devil knows you’re dead.

The older I get the more I appreciate this toast....

May your mornings bring joy
and your evenings bring peace...
May your troubles grow less
as your blessings increase!
