Rockpile – 10-22-2014

On  the Hometown and Town and Country Mens leagues, this is the last week of the first quarter already.

 Hometown league has a barnburner going as there are four teams within four points of taking the first quarter honors. Leaker’s is leading with 81.5 points, Leaker’s II has 80.5 points, Obermueller Trucking 78.5 points and the Barn Board right there also with 77 points. Should be a fun shoot-out!!

On the Town and Country league, the Pump House has a 13 point lead, so unless they really fall to pieces, the Pump House should lock up the first quarter honors.

On the Thursday Nite Ladies league, “Clear Lake Self Storage” won the first quarter with a commanding 100.5 point win. The next closest team was Hager Construction with 78 points.

The Men’s Senior League shows Leaker’s on top of the heap after five weeks with Global Genetics running in second. Doug Standaert is top dog on the average tote board with a 198 average. Rick Holmen is next with 188 and Joe Walz is third with a 186 average.

Mike Wink picked up a couple tough splits last week as Wink converted the 2-4-10 and 4-6-7-10 on Tuesday Nite Hometown League. Brad Berends rolled over the 6-7-10 split. Good job fellas!!

Burial Plans

A man and woman were married for many years.  Whenever there was a confrontation, yelling could be heard deep into the night.  The old man would shout, “When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!”

Neighbors feared him.  The old man liked the fact that he was feared.  Then one evening, he died when he was 98.  After the burial, her neighbors, concerned for her safety, asked, “Aren’t you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest of your life?”

The wife said, “Let him dig.  I had him buried upside down…and I know he won’t ask for directions.”
