The Rockpile – 7-23-2014

Well we’ve had a few weeks away from “The Rockpile” to clean, fix, and replace a few things that needed attention this summer before the 2014-2015 bowling season cranks up.

 It’s hard to believe, but with the fair behind us, it’ll only be a few weeks before we get into the bowling season. When we set up the fall meetings, the times will be posted in the Tribune Press Reporter.

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What’s your name Little Boy…Blue??”  Bee Boop!

Signs on a golf course:
• Golf is not a matter of life and death. It’s much more important than that.
• I shoot golf in the 70s. When it gets any colder than that, I quit.
• I found a wood that can lower my score. It’s called a pencil.
• If you drink, don’t drive. Don’t even putt!
• All golfers are liars except you and me…and sometimes I wonder about you!
• Wanted: Good Woman! Must be able to clean, cook, sew, caddy and find lost balls. Must have golf cart and trailer. PLEASE  SEND PICTURE OF GOLF CART AND TRAILER!!!
