Rockpile – 12-3-2014

We had only one league bowl during our Thanksgiving and Deer Hunting Break.

The Saturday Nite Mixed League rolled this past Saturday night. Bernie Obermueller and Dave Brandt bowled a couple of nice games with a 244 and 226, respectively, and a series of 658 and 640. Tracey Schug-Petersen had a 203 game with a 514 series. We’ll get back in full swing this week.

We had a few more bucks come in to register on our Buck Board. Bernie Obermueller took first place honors with a 9-point, 18.5″ spread, while Haydin DeSmith took second with his 8-point, 16″ spread.

Bryce Springborn and Will Ohman each brought in nice 8 pointers. I shot a 6-point buck the day before “Turkey Day.”

How about our Wisconsin sports teams??  Badgers basketball and football, along with the Packers. What a great weekend!!

Speaking of the Badgers football team – they will be playing Ohio State this Saturday night at 7:30 for the Big Ten Championship. Come on in and watch the game!!

Ten Dollars is Ten Dollars

Ole and Lena go to the carnival every year. Every time Olesays, “Lena, can we ride them airplanes that go up for a couple of minutes and then come back down?”, but Lena always replied by saying, “We don’t need to spend any extra money on them airplanes, it’s too expensive. Ten dollars is ten dollars.”

Tom, the pilot, said, “Ole, every year I hear you say you want to ride my airplanes, and every year Lena says it’s too expensive. I’ll make you a deal, if I do all of my flips and tricks with you in there with me, and you don’t say one word, I’ll give you the ride for free.”

Lena and Ole discussed it and they decided they would take the deal. They got up in the air and Tom did all of his tricks and flips.

Tom said, “Ole, I just knew you’d say something on that first flip, but you didn’t!”

Ole replied, “I was gonna say something when Lena fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars.”
