Well, bowling is in full swing and we’ve had some pretty nice scores thus far.

  Luke Berends rolled a 663 series last week, while Brian Cassellius put up a 658. The high weekly series was bowled by Brian  Casey, who tossed a 666.  Here are some high games: Brian Casey-278. Luke Berends-257, Matt McGee-245, Bill Standaert-246, Larry Standaert-237. We’ll take a look at some lady keglers’ scores next week.

Sven and Ole
Two Minnesota engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up.

A woman walks by and asks what they were doing.

“Ve’re supposed to find da height of dis flagpole, ” said Sven, “but ve don’t haff a ladder.”

The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a couple bolts, and laid the pole down on the ground.

Then she took a tape measure from her pocketbook, took a measurement, announced, “Twenty one feet, six inches,” and walked away.

Ole shook his head and laughed. “Ain’t dat just like a voman! Ve ask fer da height and she gives us da length!”

Sven and Ole have since quit their engineering jobs and are currently serving in the United States Congress.
