The tour guide said, “Apparently the old monks had been dead for years. No one realized it until an earthquake knocked one of them over.”


  1. What a hoot! And, yes, it is hell to get old and no one is surprised if they stumble over your body in church! I love it! — your take on the day, not getting old!!! Have a fun one, Quilly!!


  2. I like your blog I came to say thanks for leaving a comment at my place thanks oh and I agree with you throw them in to

    1. Another reason to not get old.
      Fat chance on that!
      I’m going to take down the globe, so could you leave me a comment and let me know if it works better for you. Can’t have one of my fav bloggers being frustrated by a tech problem. Cause if you’re having trouble then others probably are too.
      Thanks so much for figuering it out.

  3. This reminds me of some of the cathedrals I visited in Europe. If a monk fell down and petrified, would anyone notice? Well . . . I guess the Japanese tourists would and they’d photograph it!

    1. Tony — I imagine so. Brother Benedict has been silently fuming for weeks because he thought Brother Peter had stopped bathing in retaliation over the unfortunate bean incident.

    1. Juliana — not posterity, prosperity — after the monks were discovered visitation at the monastery really picked up (and donations, too). Burying the monks might have a negative impact on tourism.

  4. OH MY!!!! That’s a really funny story! hahhaha Funny and morose. Its sometimes difficult to get the right levels, but this was wonderful 🙂


    1. Jillien — I thought the wackiness of the tour guide showing the bodies would make a nice foil for the grim parts.
