Light relief

Two 80 year old men, Mike and Joe, have been friends all of their lives.

Joe was dying and Mike visited him every day.

One day Mike says ” Joe, we both loved our rugby all our lives, and we

played together on saturdays for many years. Please do me favour, when

you get to heaven, somehow you must let me know if there is rugby up

there”. Joe looks up at Mike and says ” Mike you have been my best

friend for many years. If its at all possible I`ll do this favour for you”.

Shortly after that Joe snuffs it.

At midnight a couple of nights later, Mike is awakend from a sound sleep

by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to him “Mike—

Mike wake up its me Joe” You’re not Joe he just died a few days ago”.

“I`m telling you its me, Joe” insists the voice.

“Joe where are you?”
” I`m in heaven”, replies Joe, “I’ve got some really good news and a little

bad news for you”.

“Tell me the good news first” says Mike.

” The good news is there is rugby played in heaven, and, better yet, all our

old friends who died before us are here too. Better yet, we`re all young

again. Better still, its always spring time and it never rains or snows. And

better yet, we can play rugby all we want and never get tired or injured”.

“That`s fantastic” says Mike. ” Its beyond my wildest dreams, so what`s

the bad news?”

” You’re in the team for Saturday”.
