The graveside service just barely finished, when there was massive clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of lightning, accompanied by even more thunder rumbling in the distance.

The little old man looked at the pastor and calmly said, 'Well, she's there.'

Which reminds me of the guy that was a professional Piper, and had played at the most prestigious of events but this time was commissioned to play over a grave and funeral,, well as it happened the weather was atrocious, his sat nav had packed up and was well overdue and getting dark, by the time he found the graveside, just in time however to see the crew finishing a cuppa,and just about to fill in the hole, and so he got out his instruments and setup and played his heart out over the now closed vault........well the air was charged with Emotion, and as he packed his gear away there were tears in the eyes of the men by the side of the hole, and one of the crew,wiping his eyes and blowing his nose was heard to say, well Ive been installing septic tanks for nigh on forty years, but Ive never had Amazing Grace played over one before!!

ps I must apologise to Persephone, I'd read a joke, and couldnt recall where it came from, the above is my version of it.
however I find that the 'original' was posted by Persie...on the jokes thread.........sorry mate fer nicking yer joke!!

(C&P from an e-mail.)

No English dictionary has been able to adequately explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED. However, in a recent linguistic conference held in London and attended by some of the best linguists in the world, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese, was the clear winner.

His final challenge was this: Some say there is no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED. Please explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED in a way that is easy to understand.

Here is his astute answer: "When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE. But, when you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!"

His answer was received with a standing ovation lasting over 5 minutes.
