The Rockpile – 4-16-2014

We had a few more championship roll-offs this past week. On our men’s Senior league, Thrivent put a hurt on my Leaker’s team and prevailed as the annual champions.

The Thrivent Team is made up of Bob Bartz, Dave Bartz, Mark Maes, Lowell Johnson, Ken Graf and Rick Holmen. Their sponsor is Joan Bartz of Thrivent Financial.
On the Wednesday Noon League, “M&M Bar” outbowled “Mark’s Trucking” to clinch the top honors. Their team consists of Gramma Christopherson, Mickie Kuehl, Alice Tuttle and Joe Goebel.

Saturday Nite Live Couple’s League also held their roll-off this last Saturday night. “Standaert-Ross’ stood off the “In-Laws” and won the honors as champs. Their team is made up of Bill and Sarah Standaert and Jim and Terri Ross. Congratulations bowlers!!

We have two more weekends left of our 9-pin tournament. I’ll post the names of the winners in a few weeks.

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What are you having for breakfast drip….coffee??”  Bee Boop!


A man received the following text from his neighbor:

“I am so sorry Bob. I’ve been riddled with guilt and have to confess. I have been hooking up with your wife, day and night when you’re not around. The connection was immediate and simple, but that’s no excuse. I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest apology with my promise that it won’t happen again.”

The man, anguished and betrayed, went into his bedroom, grabbed his gun, and without a word, shot his wife and killed her.

A few moments later, a second text came in.

“Stupid autocorrect!  The word is wifi, not wife.”
