Rockpile – 8-17-2016

Where did the summer go???? It’s getting close to the kegling season and leagues will be starting up soon. I will be putting some of the starting dates in the paper or your secretaries will let your league know when your particular league will start.

 

As our 26th year of league gets rolling, it will be interesting to see what league averages will do now that we put the synthetic lanes in!!! I guess we’ll find out very soon. I’ll post the Fun Nites of the Mens league hopefully in next week’s paper.

Note: The Wednesday Afternoon league will have their meeting Wednesday, August 31 at 1:00 p.m.

Hair Cut

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’

The florist was pleased and left the shop.

When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’ The cop was happy and left the shop.

The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The Congressman was very happy and left the shop.

The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

As Ronald Reagan said: BOTH POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON
