The Rockpile – 5-15-2013

First of all, I need to correct a misprint from last week’s column. The “Leaker’s Old Timers” captured the city championship in that roll-off. I inadvertently said that Anderson Funeral Home took the title.  My “Old Timers Team” was made up of Jason Maes, Dirk Odegard, Dennis Berends, Doris Berends, Peg Obermueller and Jim Ross.

Congratulations and sorry for the screw up!!

We will start out Bean Bag regular season in June, starting on the 1st Tuesday. We’ll have a couple fun nights on Tuesday nights before then.

I will have an announcement in next week’s column for info as to when we’ll get going on the summer bowling league.

I won’t be writing a column every week now that Bowling Season is over, but will still put a few columns in over the summer. Please feel free to keep the jokes and stories coming to the Rockpile. I really appreciate all of the Royal Readers that tell me they enjoy the little bit of nonsense ever week in “The Rockpile”.

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What did the fish say when it swam into cement wall??….Dam.” Bee Boop!!

How ‘Bout Some Oxymorons??
1. Why is the third hand on a watch called a second hand?
2. Why does “fat chance” and “slim chance” mean the same thing?
3. Why are they called “stands” when they are made for sitting?
4. Why do we sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” when we are already there?
5. Why is it called “after dark” when it is really after light?
6. Why does “slow down” and “slow up” mean the same thing?
7. If you are cross-eyed and have dyslexia, can you read all right?

I know many of you are looking forward to football season. Well, here’s a recap of last year….coincidence? Just wondering!
• Alabama beat Arkansas and they fired the coach.
• Alabama beat Tennessee and they fired the coach.
• Alabama beat Auburn and they fired the coach.
• Alabama beat Notre Dame and the Pope resigns…
Dang, I wish the White House had a team.
