Rockpile – 12-28-2016

Well, I hope everyone had a great Christmas!! What a great present for us Packer fans as the Green and Gold “socked it” to the Purple People Eaters!! Rogers and Nelson, what a great duo!!

We’re about half way through our Holiday Tournament and we have the Men’s Obermueller Trucking Team out in front by a few pins. My Leaker’s I team is only trailing the OB team by 12 pins. So far fifteen teams have bowled and we have about that many more bowling in it this week.

Logan Hoitomt bowled here Christmas Eve and showed everyone else up with a dandy 223 game. Logan is a sophomore at GCHS. (Maybe Brad and Deb should watch and see how she does it!!)

Mistletoe Merriment

Will was returning home from an exhausting business trip and he was not in a good mood.

The airport’s Christmas music was getting him down, and the decorations were quite tacky.

In line at the check-in desk he noticed the cheap plastic mistletoe hung over the luggage scale.

Sarcastically he said to the woman at the counter, “You know, even if I weren’t married, I wouldn’t kiss you under such phony mistletoe.”

“That’s not what it’s there for,” said the attendant. “It’s so you can kiss your luggage goodbye.”

Travelling Ole 

Ole — who had spent his life on a small farm in Wisconsin — was checking into a swanky, big city hotel. He said to the bellboy, “I ain’t gonna take no tiny little room like dis vit no vindows or bed. You can’t treat me like a fool just cuz I don’t travel much!”

“Mister,” replied the bellboy, “This isn’t your room…it’s the elevator.”

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “I hear you married a horse….doctor!!!” Bee Boop!!
