Rockpile – 11-28-2012

The only bowling action this past week was the Saturday Nite Mixed League. Shelly Wink who sports a 117 avenue bowled her first ever “200” game this past Saturday Nite with a 203 game. Nice game young lady!! We’ll get back this week with all the leagues at full tilt.

On our Buck Board, Butch Breymeyer from Ham Lake, Minnesota, bagged a dandy 9-point buck with a 19.5 inch outside spread for our first place honors. “Deano” Berends took 2nd place with a nice 10-point buck with a 17 inch spread. Brent Standaert was right on Dean’s tail by taking an 8 point buck with a 17 5/8 spread.  Thanks to all the participants.

P.S. Because of so many “concerned” people, I withdrew from the Buck Board!! To quote Forrest Gump: “That’s all I have to say about that.”

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “Whatever happened to Buck…wheat?” Bee Boop!!

Scottish Cow

The only cow in a small town in Ireland stopped giving milk.

Then the town folk found they could buy a cow in Scotland quite cheaply. So, they brought the cow over from Scotland. It was absolutely wonderful, it produced lots of milk every day and everyone was happy.

They bought a bull to mate with the cow to get more cows, so they’d never have to worry about their milk supply again. They put the bull in the pasture with the cow but whenever the bull tried to mount the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull, and he was never able to do the deed.

The people were very upset and decided to go to the vet, who was very wise, tell him what was happening and ask his advice. “Whenever the bull tries to mount our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. If he attempts it from the one side, she walks away to the other side.”

The vet rubbed his chin thoughtfully and pondered this before asking, “Did you by chance, buy this cow in Scotland?”

The people were dumbfounded, since no one had ever mentioned that they had brought the cow over from Scotland.

“You are truly a wise vet,” they said. “How did you know we got the cow from Scotland?”

The vet replied with a distant look in his eye: “My wife’s from Scotland.”

Packer Fan in Minnesota

A Minnesotan walks into a bar and is about to order a drink when he sees a guy close by wearing a Green Bay cap, and two beers in front of him. He doesn’t have to be an Einstein to know that this guy is a Packer Fan. So, he shouts over to the bartender so loudly that everyone can hear, “Drinks for everyone in here, bartender, but not for the Cheesehead over there.”

Soon after the drinks have been handed out, the Packer Fan gives him a big smile, waves at him, then says, “Thank you!” in an equally loud voice. This infuriates the Minnesotan.

The Minnesotan once again loudly orders drinks for everyone except the Cheesehead. As before, this does not seem to bother the Packer Fan. He continues to smile, and again yells, “Thank you!”

The Minnesotan asks the bartender, “What the hell is the matter with that Cheesehead? I’ve ordered three rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar but him, and all the silly guy does is smile and thanks me. Is he nuts?”

“Nope,” replies the bartender. “He owns the place.”
