Rockpile – 6-22-2016

Rockpile – 6-22-2016

We’re pretty much done with our alley renovations. We also installed a “new” bar top on the bowling alley side. We had a few extra lane panels left over and thanks to John Hager, he put a nice touch to the old bar. Great job, John!!

After the “Fourth” we have a few free nights for bowlers to come in and give the new lanes a tryout and see what they think. We’ll try a few different oil patterns. I will list the nights and dates of bowling in the “Rockpile”.

The summer is slipping by fast and before long it’ll be fair time, and, well, I hate to even think fall is right around the corner.

We had a great weekend for the Rodeo over the Father’s Day celebration. I heard numbers of over 1200+ attending the two-day event. Nice to see a rodeo without rain for once!!

Professional Courtesy

A doctor and a lawyer are talking at a party. Their conversation is constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice.

After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asks the lawyer: “What do you do to stop people from asking for legal advice when you are out of the office?”

“I give them the advice,” replies the lawyer, “Then I send them a bill.”

The doctor is shocked, but agrees to give it a try.

The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepares bills to send to the freeloaders.

When he goes to put them in the mailbox, he finds a bill from the lawyer.
