The Bagpiper.....lol

As a bagpiper, I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside

service for a homeless man who had no family or friends. The funeral

was to be held at a cemetery in the remote countryside and this man

would be the first to be laid to rest there.



As I was not familiar with the backwoods area, I became lost and being a

typical man, did not stop for directions. I finally arrived an hour

late. I saw the backhoe and the crew who were eating lunch but the

hearse was nowhere in sight.



I apologized to the workers for my tardiness and stepped to the side of

the open grave where I saw the vault lid already in place.



I assured the workers I would not hold them up for long but this was the

proper thing to do. The workers gathered around, still eating their

lunch. I played out my heart and soul.



As I played the workers began to weep. I played and I played like I'd

never played before, from Going Home and The Lord is My Shepherd to

Flowers of the Forest. I closed the lengthy session with Amazing Grace

and walked to my car.



As I was opening the door and taking off my coat, I overheard one of the

workers saying to another, "Sweet Jazuz, Mary'n Joseph, I never seen

nothin' like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks for

twenty years
