Rockpile – 2-13-2013

We’ve had about 60 bowlers participate in our 9-pin no-tap tournament so far and we have an all-day list on the leader board.

Jeanette Klausing is on top of the Singles leaders board with an 882 single total, while Mary Billingsley and Jackie Mangine have top honors in doubles with a combined score of a 1734. Jeanette Klausing and Jackie Mangine live in Spooner while Mary Billingsley resides in Centerville, MN.

I would like to thank the following businesses in the area for helping us sponsor this tournament: Brothers Mart and The Pumphouse from Downing, Papa’s Bar and Grill from Forest, the M&M Bar, AL’s Boondocks of Glenwood City and Peg’s Pleasant View of Wilson. We really appreciate your sponsorship!!

Brent Standaert chalked up his third “700” of the year last week with a 701 on the Hometown league.

This Week’s Momism: “Make sure you brush ALL of your teeth, not just your new ones!!!”

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What did you do when your sister hit you with snow…bawl??” Bee Boop!!

This Week’s Joke is courtesy of my Religious Rockpile Reader of the week, Madonna (Standaert) Denucci, Roberts, Wisconsin:

Two brooms were hanging in the closet and after a while they got to know each other so well, they decided to get married.

One broom was, of course, the bride broom, and the other was the broom groom.

The bride broom looked very beautiful in her white dress. The groom broom was handsome and suave in his tuxedo. The wedding was lovely.

After the wedding, at the wedding dinner, the bride-broom leaned over and said to the groom-broom, “I think I am going to have a little whisk broom!!!”

“Impossible,” said the groom broom, “We haven’t even swept together.”

Thanks Madonna!!!

FYI: Her folks were Albert and Pearl Standaert
