Morning sports fans,
Have taken off early so no note this morning.
More wise words after Easter…. in the meantime stay safe…. drive carefully…and don’t eat too much choccie…
Just one thought as Iron Ore now has a 4 in front of the price…how good are BHP and RIO going to look in years to come…does seem like they are cutting their own throats here but suppose they must have a plan…would not be surprised to see the price go into the 30’s!!!Would really scare Jokin Joe….still Andrew McKenzie must know what he is doing right? Right?Not sure how cutting rates will help the iron ore producers or the country…maybe get the dollar down to 65 cents!!!Heading that way!!
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 South West of Western Australia.
As I was not familiar with the backwoods of the South West, 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.”
