Rockpile – 10-24-2012

The Thursday Nite Ladies league finished up the first quarter last week and the new team “Ruth’s Catering” won the first quarter honors slipping by “Connie’s Catering” by a mere 1/2 point. This new team consists of Melissa Gary, Stephanie Sabatke, Jeni Schone and Brenda Schone. Congratulations ladies!!

Some other leagues will be done with the first quarter this week, so I’ll update results in next week’s Rockpile.

There were several nice split conversion last week on several leagues. Veteran Roger Ludtke, who bowls on the Men’s Senior League,  converted the very difficult “Big Four” last Thursday afternoon. The Big Four is the 4-7, 6-10 split. I’ve only seen it done a couple of times in our 22 years here!! Dori Thompson bowls on the Wed. Nite ladies league and picked up the 3-7 split, and Bob Obermueller made the very tricky 6-7-10 split on the Town and Country league. Nice bowling, guys!!

We’ll have our annual “Tailgate party” this coming Sunday, starting at noon. We’ll feature brats, burgers, a meat raffle, door prizes, and special drink prices!! Bring a dish to pass! Green Bay plays Jacksonville for hopefully another win.  Go Green Bay!!

Looney Laws (believe it or not, these laws are real)

* Playing with silly string is against the law in Lodi, California

* In Tennessee, it’s illegal to sell bologna on Sundays.

* It’s the law in French Lick Springs, Indiana, for all black cats to wear bells on Friday the 13th.

Joke of the Week – My Favorite Animal

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, “Fried chicken.”

She said I wasn’t funny, but she couldn’t have been right, because everyone else laughed.

My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.

I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much.

I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal’s office.

I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.

I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.

She sent me back to the principal’s office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again.

I don’t understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn’t like it when I am.

Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous person I admired most.

I told her, “Colonel Sanders.” Guess where I am now…
