Asked to play at a funeral?
I was talking to this old fella last night in my local pub, I think he’s about 80. He lives near me and he knows I’m a musician because he’s seen and heard me play and sing before in the pub and other places.
He said, “ I don’t want to sound morbid but I’d like you to play at my funeral.” He loves music and does a bit of singing himself.
Well I was quite touched that he asked me , and said straight away I’d do it. He’s already got his funeral planned to the last detail paid for it,laid food and drinks on in the pub for all his friends.
Then he asked me to spell “funeral”, and stopped me after the first 3 letters . . .
