Rockpile – 8-12-2015

First of all, I’d like to thank all the many people for the cards, e-mails, facebook messages, phone calls and visits since my stay in hospital about a month ago.

My doctors said I had a brain bleed which actually is considered a mini-stroke. My strength came back to my right arm and that’s coming along great. I have what you call aphasia which is defined as “difficulty speaking or jumbled speech”. That is also supposed to come back as I also go to a speech therapist once a week. Enough of that!!!

It’s hard to believe but this month starts our 25th year of business at the Ol’ Rockpile!!!! Next summer we’re planning on having a big party for our 25th Anniversary!!! Most leagues are organized and dates are set. The Wednesday Afternoon meeting is set up for Wed., Aug. 26 at noon.

We held our 19th Annual Leaker’s Big Cup Golf Tournament. We had 108 golfers and after a soggy start, turned out to be an awesome day. Thanks to all the sponsors that were so generous. We donated $500 to the Wounded Warriors and $500 to the Backpack program.  This money goes to G.C. schools to set up backpacks for kids who don’t have the means to buy snacks, juice, etc. on their own. The high school golf team also reaped some benefits from the tournament but most of the boys helped at the tournament.

Dr. Young vs. Dr. Geezer

An old geezer, who had been a retired farmer for a long time, became very bored and decided to open a medical clinic. He put a sign up outside that said: “Dr. Geezer’s clinic: Get your treatment for $500, if not cured get back $1,000.”

Doctor “Young,” who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000.

So he went to Dr. Geezer’s clinic. This is what transpired:

Dr. Young: “Dr. Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth.”Can you please help me??”

Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put three drops in Dr. Young’s mouth.”

Dr. Young: “Aaagh !!  This is gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.”

Dr. Young gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days, figuring to recover his money.

Dr. Young: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”

Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

Dr. Young:  “Oh no you don’t…that is gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will be $500.”

Dr. Young (after having lost $1000) leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.

Dr. Young: “My eyesight has become weak, I can hardly see!!!!”

Dr. Geezer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so…here’s your $1000 back.”

Dr. Young: “But this is only $500…”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500.”

Moral of story: Just because you’re “Young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an old “Geezer ” !!!!
