  • An un-looked for... Heads Up!!

    Please... do pardon... this shameless re-tread.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Michael and Jimmy had played in the same band together... and
    shared many a pint... for most of their mortal lives... and so... had
    made a sacred pact... that who ever "went first"... would try to come
    back to tell the other of the music in Heaven... and if, indeed, there
    were pipe bands there... has had been rumored of old...

    First off was Jimmy... and a fortnight later... there was Michael... in
    the dark... walking a bit... unsteady on his pins... after the pub had
    closed... and just trying to make it home...

    "Psst!! Psst!! Michael!!"

    "Who's there?" said Michael, casting about in the darkness.

    "It's me, Michael!!" said the voice. "And I can't stay long. I'm just back
    to give ya a quick shout... and to keep our bargain."

    "Oh! Michael! You were ever a grand fellow, and a damned fine friend!!
    Tell me, what's it like... what's it like... up there?!"

    "Ah! Jimmy! It's grand!! And it's like nothing you'd ever think!! And...
    there is the music up here!! And... there are pipe bands playing!!"

    "Oh, Michael, that's the best news of my whole life!! And I'll no more
    worry about what's to come."

    "Jimmy... my friend...there's just... one more thing..."

    "Aye, Michael... what is it?"

    "Ah, Jimmy... Thursday next... 4 PM sharp... you're due in the circle."

    One cannot help but wonder--did any drummers make the cut?

    Or heaven forbid, ONLY flourishing tenors? 😉

        Nice.

        But Michael and Jimmy got switched around halfway through.

          How about this as a punchline,

          "No Mike, there are no pipes in heaven, but don't worry. Where you're going it's all pipe music all the time."
