The Rockpile – 12-4-2013

We had a fun group of gals this past Friday night who participated in the “Widows” bowling tournament. Here are the top bowlers: Tracy Lawson, 712 series, first place; Cheryl Standaert, 682 series, second place; and Jane Van Beek, 680 series, third place. Thanks ladies, I know you all had a good time!!

We’ll take this week off for deer hunting and the Thanksgiving Holiday. We’ll get back in full swing next week.

We have three bucks so far that were brought in for our buck board. Harry Standaert, Brent Standaert and Matt Main all brought in nice 8-pointers that had spreads of 17 inches, 15.25 inches and 15 inches, respectively. I managed to pop a nice big doe on opening morning. It was a bitterly cold weekend for hunting though, wasn’t it?? Brrrrr!!

Back When

• 1956 Song of the Day: “Singing the Blues” – Marty Robbins

• 1940 – Woody Woodpecker made his cartoon debut in a cartoon called “Knock Knock.”

• 1949 – “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer” hit the music charts with over 80 versions. Gene Autry’s rendition is the most popular to this day!

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What vegetable do you want with our Thanksgiving dinner pop…corn??!!”  Bee Boop!
