The Wake


The station owner had been away droving for 6 months. As he was riding back to the station he met one of the old workers who had been with him for years and he asked him how were things going on the station.
He said he had some bad news
"That old blue cattle dog died"
"How"
"We think it might have been some bad horse meat"
"Where did the dog get the bad horse meat"
"From your two race horses"
"What the race horses are dead how"
"From the fire"
"What fire"
"The fire that burnt the stable down"
"How did the the stable catch fire"
"We think it was a spark from the homestead when it burnt down"
"How did the homestead catch fire"
"Well we think one of the curtins must have blown onto a candle at the wake"
"What wake"
"The wake we were having for your wife"
"My wifes dead"
"Yes boss"

The drover was by now down on his knees weeping.
The old worker put his hand on his shoulder and said " I know how you feel boss I loved that old blue dog too"
