    As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a grave side service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends,.so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in the Kentucky back-country. I was not familiar with the backwoods, got lost, & being a typical man, didn't stop and ask for directions. I arrived an hour late & saw the funeral director was gone, & the hearse was no where in sight. Only the diggers and crew were left & 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. 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 my heart out like never before for this man with no family or friends. As I played "Amazing Grace". the workers begain to weep. We al wept together. Then 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 have been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."

    So, wait, I'm a little slow to get things sometimes. You're saying you went all out and played Amazing Grace on your bagpipes ... over a septic tank??

    Oh well, somewhere out there, that dead homeless man probably knows you were playing for him.

    You ought to send that one in to Reader's Digest. They pay for humorous real stories like that.
