Rockpile – 3-13-2013

We have a new high score in our 9-Pin No Tap Tournament. Friday night, Bob Obermueller threw two “300” games and wound up with a “956” series. We cap it off at 900 so the scratch bowler at least has a chance to win via a rolloff of all “900” series. Great bowling, Bob!!!

Back When
• 1964 – Country Song of the Day: “Saginaw, Michigan” – Lefty Frizzel
• 1969 – CBS TV cancelled “The Smothers Brothers” and replaced it with a new show called “Hee Haw”
• 1975 – Work began on the Alaskan Pipeline

This Week’s Momism: “Don’t use that tone of voice with me young lady (man)!!!”

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “I thought you were on the boat…Doc??” Bee Boop!!

Some New Golf Terms to use out on the Golf Course:
• A “Rock Hudson” – A putt that looked straight, but wasn’t
• A “John Kennedy Jr.” – Didn’t quite make it over the water
• A “Rodney King” – Over-clubbed
• A “Princess Grace” – Should have used a driver
• A “Princess Di” – Shouldn’t have used a driver
• A “Rush Limbaugh” – A little to the right
• A “Ted Kennedy” – Goes into the water and jumps out
• A “Sonny Bono” – Straight into the trees!

The Year Was 1955
• “If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.”
• “When I first started driving, who would have thought that gas someday would cost 25 cents a gallon.”
• “Did you see that some baseball player signed a contract for $50,000 a year. It wouldn’t surprise me if someday they’ll be making more than the President.”
• It’s too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.
• My Favorite: “It won’t be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.”
