Deciphering the riddle?
“[These are] my last 100 days … “
Could mean death, but that’s not predictable to-the-day, so it must mean “going out of business?” But then, that was denied (or was it?). So, we’re left with … what? (Maybe moving from Buffalo? Not a bad idea!)
But then, “[I] was not supposed to see the end of 1992 and did pretty well with my overtime play …” Well this could mean some terminal illness, especially with the “hugs-and-love;” but I’m not buying the death stuff. (I had a terminal thing too … but so far so good. Then again, we’re all terminal.)
The Egyptian burial photo and the links to videos (I don’t understand; didn’t watch the whole things) … head scratching time? Egypt tomb photo could indicate “the death of the ‘king’?” (Sort of creepy … but then, most Tomb photos creep me out anyway; especially Egyptian mummy stuff.)
The “I shall be forgotten” … I can’t comment on this; too much drama (“Swan song”) and “poor me” and besides eventually everybody's forgotten … In a million years, most likely the entire human species will be forgotten too. And, in geological time, that’s a blink of an eye.
Then the headstone donation, and finally a $$$ donation to James himself. I hope my comments won't “trigger” Seana … because, actually, I’m only curious. (Don’t pounce, I’m JUST CURIOUS!) And, despite what you may think, I wish James well (mostly). It’s just that I don’t know what I’m “wishing about,” and neither does anybody else reading this curious pronouncement. If James' post was not a riddle ... then I don't know what a riddle is.
As Lucy would say to Ricky …. ‘Sssssplain!”
