For ScottyDaQ

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 Kentucky 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."

Re: For ScottyDaQ

TWO bagpipers on this board."

Re: For ScottyDaQ

<yawn> ... If Leonard Sanders joins, there would be two.
How bout this?

A piper finished a long, hot parade and went to the pub to quench his terrible thirst. He hadn't been there long when he suddenly realized that, although he'd locked his car, he'd left his pipes in plain view on the seat. He rushed back to the car, but was too late. The car window was broken, and there were three more sets of pipes on the back seat.

Re: For ScottyDaQ

ROFL!

There was the piper who played a gig in a bar in full costume,
kilt and all. Afterwards, he joined in the drinking and finally
staggered out to an alley and passed out. Two women were
passing and saw the fully monty shining forth from the piper's
kilt. As a joke, one of the women took a ribbon and tied it
around the exposed member.

The next morning, when the piper woke up, he went to take
a pee and noticed the ribbon....

"well, I don't know where you've been mate, but I see you
won first place!"
