The Rockpile – 5-21-2014

All 9-pin checks are ready. If you don’t pick them up this week, I will put them in the mail on Monday.

We are installing new carpet on June 2nd and 3rd, so please clear out your equipment so we can move lockers for the project.

We will have Fun Nite and a meeting on Wednesday, June 11th at 7:00. All summer league bowlers. Please come on in.

If there is anyone interested in bowling the summer league, please call or stop in. It is a short season as we only go six weeks!

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What kind of gas do you use…Ethel??”  Bee Boop!

Sad But True???

A well worn $1 bill and a distressed $20 bill arrived at a Federal Reserve Bank to be retired.

As they moved along the conveyor belt to be burned, they struck up a conversation. The $20 bill reminisced about its travels all over the country. “I’ve had a pretty good life,” the $20 bill proclaimed. “Why I’ve been to Las Vegas and Atlantic City, the finest restaurants in New York, and even a cruise to the Caribbean.”

“Wow!” said the $1 bill. “You’ve really had an exciting life!”

“So, tell me,” says the $20 bill, “where have you been throughout your lifetime?”

The $1 bill replies, “Oh, I’ve spent my life in the countryside rotating Sunday mornings between rural Methodist, Baptist, and Lutheran churches.”

The $20 bill interrupts, “What’s a church?”

Kind of a sad story but it may well be all too true.


I went to my proctologist’s office for my first rectal exam. His new nurse, Evelyn, took me to an examining room, told me to get undressed and have a seat until the doctor could see me. She said that he would only be a few minutes.

After putting on the gown she gave me, I sat down and while waiting I observed that there were three items on a stand next to the exam table: a tube of K-Y jelly, a rubber glove, and a beer.

When the doctor finally came in I said, “Look, Doc, I’m a little confused. This is my first exam. I know what the K-Y is for, and I know what the glove is for. But can you tell me what the beer is for?”

At that Doctor Paul became noticeably outraged and stormed over to the door. He flung the door open and yelled to his nurse….”Darn it, Evelyn!!  I said a BUTT LIGHT!!”

I guess it’s sort of like a Pabst smear!!
