    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.
    It's a man thing.
