Rockpile – 10-8-2014

We finally had a couple fellas break through the 700 barrier and get on the 700 club tote board. Veteran “Leftie” Dave Brandt put together three nice games and came up with a very respectable 749 series on Monday night. The following night, Jon Standaert lit ’em up also to punch out a 727 series. Good bowling, fellas!!

Taking a glance at the Mixed Couples leagues, first we’ll spotlight the Saturday Night Live league. Bill Standaert lead the men with a 202 average, while Cindy Drury is in the front for the gals with a 165 average. The Sunday Nite Mixed Doubles finds Brian Casey out in front of the men with a 211 average and Linda Schouten has the top spot thus far for the ladies with a 160 average.

On the Saturday Nite Mixed league Dave Brandt is the leader of the men with a 217 average and Peg Obermueller has bragging rights for the ladies with a 173 average.

Bob Bartz, who bowls with the Thursday afternoon senior league accomplished quite the feat as Bob picked up the 5-10 split twice in one game last week, and to add to the great conversions, Bob turned an amazing 90 years young in July!! Great job Mr. Bartz!!

This next little tidbit goes out to Joe Berends: The Minnesota State Patrol are really “cracking” down on speeders throughout the state. If they catch you going at least 10 miles per hour over the speed limit, they give you two tickets to a Vikings game…and you HAVE to go!! Slow down!!

People have been asking about our annual Tailgate party. It is all set up for Sunday, October 19 at noon. The Packers play the Panthers that day. We’ll have brats, burgers and a potluck format. Put this date on your calendar and come join the party!!

65-Year-Old Woman

A 65-year-old woman had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital.

While on the operating table she had a near-death experience. Seeing God, she asked “Is my time up?”

God said, “No, you have another 33 years, 2 months and 8 days to live.”

Upon recovery, the woman decided to stay in the hospital and have a face lift, liposuction, breast implants and a tummy tuck. She even had someone come in and change her hair color and brighten her teeth Since she had so much more time to live, she figured she might as well.

After her last operation, she was released from the hospital. While crossing the street on her way home, she was killed by an ambulance.

Arriving in front of God, she demanded: “I thought you said I had another 33 years? Why didn’t you pull me from out of the path of the ambulance?”

God replied: “I didn’t recognize you!”

Husband Down

A husband and wife are shopping in their local supermarket.

The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in their cart.

“What do you think you’re doing?” asks the wife.

“They’re on sale, only $10 for 24 cans” he replies.

“Put them back, we can’t afford them” demands the wife, and they carried on shopping.

A few aisles farther on, the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.

“What do you think you’re doing?” asks the husband.

“It’s my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,” replies the wife.

Her husband retorts: “So does 24 cans of Budweiser and it’s half the price.”

That’s him in Aisle 5.
