The Rockpile – 10-9-2013

After about a month into the 1st Quarter, Leaker’s II is leading the Hometown League by 5.5 points. Aflac is in second place and Leaker’s I is only one point behind the Aflac team. Bernie Obermueller flirted with a “700” series last week as Obermueller rolled a dandy “689” series.

 On Town and Country competition, Melby’s is a mere 3.5 points ahead of  the Boondocks’ Pinpopper crew.

On the Senior Circuit, Al’s Boondocks leads with 43. My Leaker’s team is next with 37.5 points. On that Seniors league, long-time bowling legend Roger Ludtke bowled a 221 game and a very nice 640 series. I’ll update some of the other leagues next week.

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “Where are you going to go George…Washington???”  Bee Boop!

Joke of the Week – You Don’t Have to Be Catholic

submitted by Dennis Flick

A man suffered a serious heart attack while shopping in a store. The store clerk called 911 when they saw him collapse on the floor.

The paramedics rushed the man to the nearest hospital where he had emergency open heart bypass surgery. He awakened from the surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at the Catholic Hospital.

A nun was seated next to his bed, holding a clipboard loaded with several forms and a pen. She asked him how he was going to pay for his treatment.

“Do you have health insurance?” she asked.

He replied in a raspy voice, “No health insurance.”

The nun asked, “Do you have money in the bank?”

He replied, “No money in the bank.”

“Do you have a relative who could help you with the payments?” asked the irritated nun.

He said, “I only have a spinster sister, and she is a nun.”

The nun became agitated and announced loudly, “Nuns are not spinsters!  Nuns are married to God.”

The patient replied, “Perfect. Send the bill to my brother-in-law.”
