Rockpile – 1-30-2013

Rockpile – 1-30-2013

We had a couple of more 700’s last week on the Hometown league. For the second week in a row, Doug Standaert bowled a 700 series and Mike Wink also rolled a 700 the same night. The fellas had a series of 704 and 707, respectively.

Nikki Grant, daughter of Doug Standaert, also put together a couple of nice games as Nikki bowled a 200 and 206 games.  Good bowling guys!!

We purchased a couple pieces of equipment last week that we’ve talked about doing for quite some time. We got a ball reviver and refinisher. We will now be able to bake the oil out of bowling balls with the reviver and give your bowling ball a like-new finish with the other polisher. Talk to Brent or me and we’ll give you the details.

Our 9-pin no-tap tournament starts this weekend and goes every weekend until the end of April. Spots are filling up so stop or call if you want to be a squad leader. Squad leaders who bring in at least 16 bowlers per shift will get to bowl free.

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What would you do if your wife sat on your back…scratcher??” Bee Boop!!

Ole’s New Bull

We recently spent $2,500 on a young Black Angus bull. We put him out with the herd but he just ate grass and wouldn’t even look at a cow. I was beginning to suspect he was gay, if that’s possible with a bull.

Anyhow, I had the vet come have a look at him. He said the bull was very healthy, but possibly a little young, so he gave me some pills to feed him once per day.

The bull started to service the cows within two days. All of my cows! He even broke through the fence and bred all my neighbor’s cows! He’s been breeding just about everything in sight. He’s like a machine!

I don’t know what was in the pills the vet gave him, but they kinda taste like peppermint.
