The Rockpile – 1-15-2014

We had a couple of great series bowled this past week.


Jason Maes and Brian Casey came very close to that elusive “700” series as they bowled a 699 and 695 respectively. Maes and Casey both bowl on the Town and Country league. Brian sports a 190 average while Jason comes in with a 187 average.

The father-son duo of Dave Brandt and Bo Brandt also lit ’em up last week as Dad Dave bowled a 675 series, while Son Bo tossed a 656. Great Bowling Fellas!!!

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “How’s your blood…..Count??”  Bee Boop!

The Blonde Pilot

(This story goes out to a school teacher in Owatonna, Minn.)

This is the story of the blonde flying in a two-seater airplane with just the pilot. He has a heart attack and dies. She, frantic, calls out a May Day.

“May Day! May Day! Help me! Help me! My pilot had a heart attack and is dead. And I don’t know how to fly. Help me! Please help me!”

She hears a voice over the radio saying:

“This is Air Traffic Control and I have you loud and clear. I will talk you through this and get you back on the ground. I’ve had a lot of experience with this type of problem. Now, just take a deep breath. Everything will be fine! Now give me your height and position.”

She says, “I’m 5’4″ and I support Obama.”

“O.K.” says the voice on the radio. “Repeat after me: Our Father…Who Art in Heaven…”
