I knew I was behind on posting the Blobs but I had no idea I had not made in in nearly a month.  Life has just been very hectic and I have been quite busy dealing with things.  However, I read a story on-line today and thought I should do my part to spread this touching story.


A Homeless Man’s Funeral

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 or 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.

Update 1/31/12

Laughmaster’s Blob (Big Load Of Babble) for 1/31/12

I honestly do not have much to share today but felt the urge to write an update anyways.  I am currently working on editing and organizing a list of directories the site is going to be submitted to soon.  Well not too soon since there are a few thousand sites in the list.  So it will take some time.  But I hope to have the organizing done within a day or two from now and then should be submitting to about 25 sites per day.  I suppose you do not really need to know all of this.  But I like to keep you updated anyways.  I would also like to start adding a video section to the site.  But there is just way too much on my plate right now to try to even think about how to work in a video section.  Plus then you really have to watch what you post so you do not violate any copyright laws.  Ugggghhhh just too much work to do for the site and never enough time.  Well I suppose I have babbled enough for this Blob.  No pictures or anything this time but I will try to post some new material very soon.  Thank you for stopping by and sticking with the site during this time of ever expanding and unending work.
