I'm sure Keith would see the humorous side too, surprised the SA Customs didn't open the pot though - isn't yoghurt supposed to a live culture?

Thanks for your support (and the giggle)

To top it all the breeze arrived and father flew over everything. He would have find it so funny especially us trying to be very discreet in our endeavours. So if anyone sees a small ash pile on top of an alpine garden up a mountain in Swizterland that's my Dad - stay and have a chat with him and tell him all is well and Mother wants her ashes scattered in Brazil
We have Keith in a similar jar - I must say I'm not looking to having him x-rayed, eyebrows will no doubt be raised - and what if they open him up and ask what the white powder is

Isn't it typical though - people have a tendency to turn up at the most inopportune moments, even the breeze conspired against you

Thanks for your input SueG

I want my ashes scattering under "The Bull" at Los boliches Los Pacos, so whenever you see the bull people will think of me! What a marker

That's an idea, not exactly what I was thinking of for Keith though.

Is that between Benalmadena and Fuengerola or am I barking up the wrong tree?

I think it is classed more as Fuengirola, a huge black bull it`s high up on a hill, you can see it for miles.

A bloke I knew wanted to be scattered from a Chinook helicopter. So up they all went, his missus threw his ashes through the side door and he blew straight back in again.

Ah, the Osborne bull? I love their brandy.

A random thought. The other figures, the ones for Tio Pepe. Tio is Uncle, Pepe is short for Jose? = Joseph, so Tio Pepe is akin to Uncle Joe? That always makes me think it's Stalin's sherry as he was always called Uncle Joe.

Anything would be welcome

If you think the thread has been exhausted, let me know.
