Wayne the Painter
There was a tradesman, a painter called Wayne who was
very interested in making a penny where he could, so he often
would thin down his paint with to make it go a wee bit further.
As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but
eventually the Baptist Church decided to do a big
restoration job on the painting of one of their biggest
buildings. Wayne put in a bid, and because his price was
so low, he got the job.
And so he set to erecting the scaffolding and setting up
planks, and buying the paint, and, yes, sorry to say, thinning
it down with turpentine.
Well, Wayne was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the
job nearly completed when suddenly there was a horrendous
clap of thunder! The sky opened up and the rain poured down.
...washing the thinned paint from all over the church and
knocking Wayne clear off the scaffolding to land on the
lawn among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles
of thinned and useless paint.
Wayne was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the
Almighty, so he got on his knees and cried: "Oh, God!
Forgive me! What should I do?"
And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke.
( You're going to love this)
"Repaint, Repaint, and thin no more!"
