Happy Thursday.

Don't forget that we have another big Northland Pines Footbal game on the air tomorrow night for you as the Eagles are at home to take on Hancock.

I received this e-mail / story of The Bagpiper from my mom. I wanted to share it with you...


The Bagpiper

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 male, 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!

Non that right there is some funny stuff.

God Bless and have a great day.

Later

Wolf
