    An elderly man lay dying in his bed. While suffering
    the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled

    the aroma of his favourite scones wafting up the stairs.

    He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself
    from the bed.  Leaning on the wall, he slowly made his way
    out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort,

    gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs.

    With laboured breath, he leaned against the
    door-frame, gazing into the kitchen.  Were it not for death's
    agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven,

    for there, spread out upon the kitchen table were
    literally hundreds of his favourite scones.

    Was it heaven?  Or was it one final act of love from his
    devoted Scottish wife of sixty years, seeing to it that

    he left this world a happy man?

    Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself
    towards the table, landing on his knees in rumpled posture.

    His aged and withered hand trembled towards a scone

    at the edge of the table, when it was suddenly

    smacked by his wife with a wooden spoon .......

    ?F**k off? she said, ?they're for the funeral.?
