No 3 was my favourite.
Many years ago when the children were small we had a tortiose, we put him in a warm place and made sure he was ok.Then a perculiar odour was in the house.....Yes the poor tortiose was dead, my children cried for hours.

May peaceful blessings be with you this Christmas Gregg also to your family.

Definitely, "let it down slowly"...simpl because it reminds me of a time whe I was new in police work and got sent to a man who hung himself.......from a tree....in the middle of august.....and wasn't found for a couple weeks. Well, he was so high in the tree and so, ummmmm bloated, that the medical examiner was trying to figure out how to get him down. One of the guys said, "let him down slowly", expecting the guy way up the ladder to just be able to hold a 200-lb dead guy by a long rope. Well, the plan failed. Dead guy crashed to the ground. And the stench was horrendous! So, that's why that one is my favorite....funny now, but not at the time.
