Hi dear mylotters. I am sharing another picture of my son. This is actually a photoshop image that I created from the original photo taken on December 28 last year, while me and my family are spending the vacation in the province. As we are having fun by the beach, just a few steps from the house of my in-laws, we played with the kids and decided to have him buried in the sand. Now, I wish to ask you, my dear mylot friends, when was the last time you experienced being buried alive? If those sands are debts, how did you survive? How or what were the ways you had to pay those debts and get out of the grave?

I've not been buried alive! Well in the beach for many times I experienced being half buried just like your son and I'd say it feels so relaxing and comfortable. The first time I experienced it I was amazed that it would be that cool inside the ground. The ground has a very cool feel. I thought it would be very hot when buried but no. Maybe because it is by the seashore. Ever since I experienced being half buried in the sand I always look for forward to summer so that I could experience it again.

some people even believe that burying our body in the sand helps eliminate some sickness, like arthritis and muscle pain. those had mild stroke, paralyzed, had their feet buried in the sand, usually in the morning, and said there are some improvements in their health, after doing this for some times.

Yes you are right. I know many people who use this as therapy and they are saying it has been very effective to them. Well, that could be a cheaper alternative to healing. I find it really relaxing to be half buried under the sand. I don't really know how it will feel if the whole body will be buried. Ha!ha!ha! When that time comes, of course I would not know anymore because my soul and spirit would be in heaven already.

Cute picture! He's adorable! The sand behind him looks like a dragon! The middle looks like a face/head and then it looks like two wings to the side! hehe

Hi Neil! I love the word-play. Literally, I think the last time I was buried in beach sand was still back in my teens. But figuratively, with life burying me in its craziness... Let's just say I recently climbed out of my personal grave (in almost all aspects of life), and I'm not fully out yet. How I managed to do at least start climbing out? God's grace. It was HE who pulled me out of it. :) That I breathe today is truly a miracle. :)

I've never been buried alive. I don't think I will ever let anyone bury me under sand because I'm afraid of crabs and other stuff in there. But I would love to bury someone who wants to be buried. That would be really fun.

you got that right angelajoy, what if they were some creatures under the sand. my friend tried to bury himself in the sand until she got bitten by a crab, which hurts and it was huge, good thing one of the body guards were there to take it out

hello neildc, And i thought you went all the way and only head remains up still. i don't remember burying myself with the sand. but i did try to make a sand castle before but it wasn't good and the castle was too close to the water and it just waves it away. am sure he had a bath right after staying in the sand

right after getting off the sand, he went directly in the waters. he had a great bath with fresh waters to remove the sand and the salt water on his body.

OMG so it was a game? Nevertheless a risky one! I’ve never been buried alive, thank God…on TV I see the images of earthquake victims and wonder how they manage to survive so long… Regarding debts…as long as I can keep it off, I’ll never be in debt. It’s a principle of my life, that’s why I have no credit cards. I buy only when I can afford to pay cash.

did i scare you? sorry for that. anyway, you have a good principle in spending your money, but there are really some times that we cannot avoid but to borrow money, especially in emergency situations. and there credit cards will come in.

neildc you have the most handsome little guy I have seen in a while and he looks like he is having a ball. I never have beeen buried in the sand, too scary for me but the kids love it. Sands were debts well I just did the best I could and paid all of them I could and the legal limits on the one remaining ran out so now am debt free. I am staying that way by using on my debit cars a nd always being paid up.

thanks, hatley. i just hope he'll keep being adorable until he grow up. some people here had told that there is also some benefits being buried in the sand, in the beach. there are some people had stroke, and half of their body are paralyzed. one cannot walk well. they go to the beach early in the morning and bury their legs in the sand for some period of time. they believe it helps. with the debts. i hope someday, i can tell the world, that neil is debt-free mylotter.
