Rockpile – 4-2-2014

Our Sunday Nite Mixed Couples league finished up their regular season last Sunday night. The championship roll-off will be “Main Street Mayhem” and “Out-4-Fun”. They will roll off the championship this coming Sunday Nite. I’ll give you the update next week.

Saturday Nite Mixed had their Championship roll-off this past weekend this match-up was between “B.O.O.B.” and “Full House”. Full House outlasted the B.O.O.B. team and took the championship. The winning team is made up of Dennis and Doris Berends, and Bob and Theresa Obermueller. Congrats kids!!!

Most of the other leagues will be finishing up in the next couple of weeks.

We had a full crew partake in our 9-Pin Tap Tournament this past weekend. Dan Klatt, owner of the Hudson Bowling Center, brought in a crew Friday Nite. They had a great time. Thanks, Dan!!

Luke Berends joined the “900” club in the 9-Pin Tournament and will be a finalist in the $1000/first place purse. Luke is one of six bowlers to tip the 900 mark. Great job Mr. Berends!!!

A couple gals converted some pretty tough splits this past week. Kay Cassellius picked up the 5-7 split and Jolene Hurtgen converted the 4-6-10. Good bowling gals!!

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What did you do when your wife swallowed the salt…shaker??”  Bee Boop!

Four Brothers

Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers.

One evening, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed the 95th birthday gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who moved to Florida.

The first said, “You know, I had a big house built for Mama.”

The second said, “You know I had a large theater built in the house.”

The third said, “And I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her.”

The fourth said, “You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know she can’t read anymore because she can’t see very well. I met this preacher who told me about a parrot who could recite the entire Bible. It took ten preachers almost 8 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $50,000 a year for five years to the church, but it was worth it. Mama only has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it.”

The other brothers were impressed. After the celebration Mama sent out her thank you notes.

She wrote: “Milton, the house you built is so huge that I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house.  Thanks anyway.”

“Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home; I have my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks.”

“Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound and it can hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I’ve lost my hearing, and I’m nearly blind. I’ll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the same.”

“Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious. Thank you so much.”

How ’bout the Badgers!! How exciting to get into the Final Four® in the NCAA! Game time is 7:47 this Saturday night!!
