Joke of the Day - Sunday 09 Mar 2014

The Bagpiper

Time is like a river.  You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.  Enjoy every moment of life.  As a bagpiper, I play many gigs.  Recently I  was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless  man.  He  had no family or friends, so the service was  to be at a paupers  cemetery in the Nova Scotia back country. 

 As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical
 man, I didn't stop for directions. 

 I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere insight.  There were only the diggers and crew left and they were  eating lunch.  I felt badly and apologized to the men
 for being late. 

 I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was 
already in place.  I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.
 The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around.  I played out my heart and  soul for this man with no family and friends.  I played  like I've never played before for this homeless man.

 And as I played "Amazing Grace", the workers began  to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together.  When I finished, I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car.  Though my head was hung low, my heart was full.

 As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I never
  seen nothing like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks for  twenty years." 
  Apparently I'm still's a man thing.
