Rockpile – 1-29-2014

We had a couple more “700” series to tack up on the tote board this past week.


 Doug “Wado” Standaert rolled a 730 on our Thursday afternoon Senior league and Mike Wink tossed a very nice 745 series on Sunday afternoon while taking part in our Association Tournament. Wink averaged a 230 average in a 6 game series!!! Wink and Standaert each bowled high games of 277 and 268 respectively. Mike Wink commented that he could have done that he “could have done better, but his teammates kinda ‘held him back’.” Wink’s team all bowl for the “M&M Bar”.  Great job fellas!!!

Lynn Dahl had the pocket dialed this Wednesday night as Lynn rolled a 235 game and posted a 546 series on the board.

Ione DeSmith also put up a dandy 568 series this past Wednesday night. Great bowling fellas!!!

We have a very interesting “Saturday Night Live” league underway this half. We have a 2.5 point margin in standings for the top four spots on this eight-team league. The top three teams are all knotted up and the fourth place team is only 2.5 points out. Should be fun to see how it works out!!!!

Cowboy and a Lady

A young cowhand married a thoroughly-modern young lady from the big city and they went on their honeymoon.

When they got back, the bride immediately called her mother. “Well,” said her mother, “so how was the honeymoon?”

“Oh, Mama,” she replied, “the honeymoon was wonderful! So romantic….”

She didn’t even finish the sentence when she suddenly burst out crying.

“But, Mama, as soon as we returned, my new husband started using the most horrible language – things I’d never heard before! I mean, awful, four-letter words! You’ve gotta to take me home!  Please, Mama.”

“Now, now,” her mother said, “Calm down! You need to stay with your husband and work it out. Now, tell me, what could be so awful? What four-letter words did he use?”

“Please don’t make me tell you, Mama,” wept the daughter. “I’m so embarrassed. They’re just too awful to repeat! Just come get me.”

“Darling, baby, you must tell me what has you upset. Tell your mother these horrible four-letter words.”

Sobbing, the bride said, “Oh, Mama, he used words like dust, wash, iron, and cook!”

“I’ll pick you up in 20 minutes.” said the mother.
