The Rockpile – September 12, 2012

We had a great Rustic Lore celebration this past weekend! The weather was terrific and there were a lot of people in town.

[emember_protected]Jesse Buhr from Ridgeland was the big winner of the John Deere Kiddie Gator. We had approximately 100 kids participate in the Kiddie Tractor Pull following the Grand Parade.

Bill and Jon Standaert took first place in our Bean Bag tournament on Saturday. They had quite the shootout as Corey DeLong and Steve Harris came all the way back from the first round losers bracket to take a solid second place. Congrats guys!!

The Bowling leagues will be in full swing this week for the season.

We are scheduling a Scotch Doubles Tournament for Friday, September 28th starting at 7:00 p.m. This will be open to the first twelve teams who sign up. Cost for the three game event will be $30 per team. Any man-woman combination can sign up!!

Momism of the Week: “If all of your friends jumped off a cliff, would you jump too??”

Did You Know? Children laugh out 400 times a day while an adult only laughs, on average, 15 times a day.

Bedside Manners

Susie’s husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months. Things looked grim, but she was by his bedside every single day. One day as he slipped back to consciousness, he motioned for her to come close to him. She pulled the chair close to the bed and leaned her ear close to be able to hear him.

“You know,” he whispered, his eyes filling with tears, “you have been with me through all the bad times. When I got fired, you stuck right beside me. When my business went under, there you were. When we lost the house, you were there. When I got shot, you stuck with me. When my health started ailing, you were still by my side. And you know what?”

“What, dear?” she asked gently, smiling to herself.

“I think you’re bad luck.”[/emember_protected]
