Say What?

The Bagpiper
I love this story.  Lay down whatever is bothering you, breathe in the fresh air and LISTEN to this story.
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life
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 Nova Scotia 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 was hung low, my heart was full.
 As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I never seen anything like that before, and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."
Apparently, I'm still lost … it's a man thing
 When you have stopped, laughing be sure to forward this on to others who would enjoy a good story.

The lighter side

This could very well be about any one of my older friends at Churn Creek

An older gentleman walks into an upscale cocktail lounge. He is in his mid-eighties, very well-dressed, hair well-groomed, great looking suit, flower in his lapel and smelling slightly of an expensive aftershave. He presents a very nice image.

Seated at the bar is a classy looking lady in her mid-seventies

The sharp old gentleman walks over and sits alongside her.

He orders a drink and takes a sip.

He slowly turns to the lady and says: "So, tell me..... do I come here often?"

" A Family Affair"

  The retro-looking diner, the former Gold Street Cafe about a block east of Court Street, is open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday and for brunch on Sundays. Outstanding Service with a select menu where each item is prepared with your taste buds in mind. My wife had the Monte Cristo Sandwich that was the best she has had in years.

The Beer Talking
Jenny Craig FOR MEN

I called the company and ordered
 their 5-day, 10 lb. weight loss.

 The next day, there's a knock on the
 door and there stands before me a
voluptuous, athletic,
19 year old babe dressed in nothing
but a pair of Nike running shoes and
 a sign around her neck.

 She introduces herself as a
representative of the weight loss company.

 The sign reads, 'If you can catch me,

 you can have me.'
 Without a second thought, I took off
after her. A few miles later huffing
and puffing, I finally gave up.

 The same girl shows up for the next
four days and the same thing happens.

 On the fifth day, I weighed myself
and am delighted to find I lost 10 lbs.
as promised.

 I  called the company and ordered
their 5-day/20 pound program.

The next day there's a knock at the
door and there stands the most stunning,

beautiful, sexy woman I have ever
 seen in my life.
She is wearing nothing but Reebok
running shoes and a sign around her
neck that reads,

'If you catch me you can have me'.

 Well, I'm out the door after her
like a shot.

This girl is in excellent shape and I
do my best, but no such luck. So for
the next four days,

the same routine happens and I'm
gradually getting in better and
 better shape.

Much to my delight on the fifth day when
I weigh myself, I discover that I have
lost another 20 lbs. as promised.

So I decide to go for broke and call the
company to order the 7-day/50 pound

"Are  you sure?"
asks the representative on.
"This is our most rigorous program."

"Absolutely," I reply, "I haven't felt
this good in years."

 The next day there's a knock at the door;
 and when I open it find a huge muscular guy
standing there wearing nothing but pink
 running shoes and a sign around his
neck that reads,

"If I catch you,... you're mine."
 I lost 63 pounds that week.
