Rockpile – 12-5-2012

Our leagues are all back in full swing after our deer hunting and Thanksgiving break.

Mary Anderson, who bowls on our Wednesday Nite ladies League, chalked up her first 200 game ever by hitting that “200” mark right on the head. Barbe Mrdutt also had one of her highest games ever with a nice 223 score on Wednesday night.

After a two-way tie on the Wed. Nite league, Cindy Rassbach pulled one pin ahead of Lori Klinger with a current 179 average. Lori is right on her heels with a 178 average. It should be a good fight to see who has bragging rights at the year’s end!!

“Birthday Boy” Gary Standaert rolled a dandy 268 game last week on the Hometown league, while cousin Doug “Wado” Standaert had the second highest game that same night with a 257 game.

Chris Lawson converted the tough 4-10 split Sunday evening and Penny Johansen picked up the 4-7-10 split.

Good bowling, kids!!

You Can’t Fix Stupid!!

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked, “Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?”

To which I replied, “If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?”

He smiled knowingly and nodded, “That’s why we ask.”

A Touching Christmas Story

A couple was Christmas shopping at the mall on Christmas Eve and the mall was packed. Walking through the mall the surprised wife looked up and noticed her husband was no where around and she was very upset because they had a lot to do.

She used her cell phone to call her husband because she was so upset, to ask him where he was.

The husband in a calm voice said, “Honey, remember the jewelry store we went into five years ago, where you fell in love with that diamond necklace we could not afford and I told you that I would get it for you one day?”

Crying, his wife said, “Yes, I remember that jewelry store.”

He said, “Well, I’m in the bar next to it!!”
