Bagpiper at a Funeral

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 Pauper's' cemetery in the 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 in sight. 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 hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I never seen nothin' like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."

Apparently I'm still lost....it's a man thing.
Thank you Jerry.



The Horniest Man On The Earth !
Thank you Ann and Jerry.

Please tell your grandson how impressed we all are (unless it would embarrass him that you've shown us) and thanks once again for the jokes.

I am printing a copy of the knitted shorts picture and taking it to my knitting group. Hehehehe!

TexWisGirl said...

Pondside said...

They're all so funny, but that 'knitting gone wrong' will make the rounds all over the world!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Thanks for the laughs today. hugs, Linda

BECKY said...

What a cute Lego house. And OMG, I always laugh at your "funnies"!

Stacy said...

The Lego scene is awesome! I always felt proud of myself if I managed to build a square house with the those things.

Those shorts! Ugh!

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

I always enjoyed building with Legos when my kids were young. We still have a couple of giant plastic containers full of Legos in the attic. I think your grandson did an excellent job. Maybe he'll let you use that as a Christmas decoration this year.

Ginny said...

A very good post today, and your grandson is a genius with the Legos, so cute!!! I have a purse that looks exactly like those shorts, no kidding!!

....Petty Witter said...

A word of warning, never get caught out in the rain in those knitted shorts.

Thanks for the laughs.

Tracy said...

My Grandmother chrochet me some hotpants when i was younger I got caught out in the rain all I will say is that I was embarrased and never wore them again

Eva Ason said...

Funny post!

Those pants was wicked! GS is good with the LEGO's :)

Walking on Sunshine... said...

Very funny, love the septic story. And those shorts are way too much. Your grandson did a great job!

I had to show our 5 year old who is very into legos what your grandson made, he wants to now make a Christmas scene :) And those SHORTS! Oh my!!! hahahaa I'm a knitter, but not that experienced to make shorts! :) Much Peace~

Granny Annie said...

Between the knitted shorts and the bat cartoon, I had a little incontinence myself:)

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the funeral joke! Hard to believe that someone would actually wear those shorts. Love the Legos. My son was so into those when he was young. Have a nice weekend.

That corgi :) said...

GS's Lego creation was so cute, Sandie! Absolutely not ready for Christmas, nor have any Christmas spirit, but that's okay, I'm sure I'll get some soon.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

betty

Susan said...

Hi Sandie! Hope you had a fabulous holiday. THinking of you. Susan

dandelionfleur said...

I want those knit shorts!
Happy Thanksgiving, Cathy!

My Journey With Candida said...

Isn't it exciting when you have a Grandchild that still believes in Santa. It is no fun when they stop believing...
Great job he did on the legos

DeanO said...

Sandie, what funny giggles. I love the septic tank story; true, we men will not ask for directions. That's why we have wives and GPS

SweetMarie said...

Those knitted shorts are halarious! You're granson is quite talented with the legos. Future engineer? Hope you day was great!

Angela said...

I laughed really hard at the septic story! You see we have a septic so I can see how the man would get confused! lol

Love the Legos!

Great Friday Funnies!
Angela

Belle said...

Those shorts are so awful! My kids loved Lego too, he did a good job with Santa. I also loved the bagpipe joke. That was great.

Michaele said...

Loved your post - as always. Those shorts put me off my bed-night snack however.

Crystal Mary said...

Those shorts are eye catching. Ray would never wear them.
Andy has done a lovely job on his Christmas house, children make Christmas come to life.
Oh that homeless mans grave and the bagpipe story was so stirring. Recently a man who had started to attend our church and who I never met died. The church paid for and performed his funeral. They said only a handful went. I didn't realise his story of lonliness and isolation or I would have gone also.I never met him, apparently he would leave straight after the service, and kept tp himself. There is much sadness in life. xxxx

FishHawk said...

Thanks!

Ann said...

oh those short are too much...lol
good job on the lego creation by your grandson

Sharon said...

Ah, my irreverent little friend. First of all, those knitted shorts are really creepy. Do you think he's wearing knitted boxers??

GS is a boy after my own heart. We LOVE Legos in our family (even the 25 and 28-year olds). He's done quite a good job on this Christmas vignette. Where's Disco? Oh wait, he's probably under the covers with your grandson.

The bag piper story. Oh, I hate how easily I get sucked into your stories. From a tear in my eye to a belly laugh - in two seconds flat!!

:)

Catherine said...

Oh the joy of Lego. My son used to play with it for hours and hours!
