Rockpile – 3-6-2013

We put together sixteen bowlers over the weekend and headed to LaCrosse for the Wisconsin State Senior Bowling Tournament.

Dave Brandt shined in doubles and singles. Brandt rolled a 753 scratch series. We had some nice games also. Bernie Obermueller bowled a 267 game in team events, while Dale and Karla Obermueller each threw a 234 game Sunday. Karla rolled a 601 series also. Roger Ludtke bowled a 235 game and yours truly somehow managed to score a 244 game. A good time was had by all!!

Next year’s senior tournament will take place in Stevens Point. If you’re 55 years old or older and want to join us next year, give me a call!!!

Cindy Hurtgen picked up a couple of tricky splits on the Thursday Nite league. Cindy converted the 6-7-10 and the 4-9 split. On the Senior Circuit, Dan Cassellius made the very difficult 4-6-7-9-10 split.

We had a 9-pin crew in from the Hudson bowling center. Dan Klatt, owner of the Hudson Bowling center, brought in approximately 20 bowlers to participate. We had a few local bowlers join in the fun. Bill Ross is in 3rd Place right now as Ross put together a 887 series.

Sharing in Marriage  – This story was sent to me by Sheldon and Teresa Nordell of Turtle Lake, who are this week’s Religious Rockpile Readers of the Week.

The old man placed an order for one hamburger, French fries and a drink. He unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his wife. He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip, and then set the cup down between them. As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them were looking over and whispering. Obviously they were thinking, “That poor old couple – all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.”

As the man began to eat his fries, a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said, they were just fine – they were used to sharing everything. People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn’t eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.

Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said, “No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything.”

Finally as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked, “What is it you are waiting for?”

She answered, “The teeth.”
