Great Book!!

I started reading this book last night.  It’s kind of interesting to see what people say when they’re on their death beds!
One that sounds like something I would say was:

“Throw a quilt over her.”

FREDERICK THE GREAT

Emperor Frederick the Great of Prussia was a splendid ruler.  During his long reign in the late 18th century, he abolished religious persecution, established a free press, and protected private property.  Nonetheless, he believed his subjects were ignorant cattle and reserved his affection for his army and his pet dogs.  For his deathbed, he saw his favorite greyhound shivering, and issued this order to his valet.

This sounds like something I would do on my deathbed if Isabella was sitting next to be shivering.  She’d most likely be shivering from fear of what her life would be like without me!

Any idea of what you think you might say on your deathbed?
