The Rockpile – 9-10-2014

A couple of leagues started up last week and we will get into the full schedule this week. Just a reminder to the Thursday Afternoon Senior League – meeting and Fun Day is this Thursday, September 11.

 What a great weekend we had for our Rustic Lore celebration!! The dances, car show, tractor pull, softball tournament, kickball tournament and great “grand parade” were all well-attended and everyone had a great time!!

My Leaker’s kickball team took first place in the kickball tournament on Saturday. We also held our annual Bean Bag Tournament on Saturday. Anthony and Andrew Sandow repeated as champs again this year!! Congrats!!

Following  the parade Sunday we held the “Kiddie” Tractor Pull. Super turnout as we held close to 100 kids participate.

Following the Kiddie Pull, we held the “Battle of the Businesses” Pull. We had 17 participants. Gary Standaert represented Peg’s Pleasant View in Wilson and is taking the plaque back to Wilson. Great job, Gary!! Thanks to all the businesses who were represented!

Joke of the Week

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and appeared to require hip surgery.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn’t reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then pending the review boards decision on his age and remaining value to society.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever taken to a vet.

The SECOND is a Senior Citizen on Obama care.

In November if there is no change in government we’ll all have to find a good vet.
