Rockpile – 3-15-2017

We had four fellas who came close to that “700” series last week. Mike Wink rolled a 696, Wado Standaert 685, Steve Bazille 685, and Dave Brandt 664. These were all bowled on the Hometown League.

Cindy Rassbach bowled a 224 game along with a 576 series on the Wednesday Nite Ladies League.

The leagues are winding down and some only have a couple more weeks to go. Many people are looking forward to green grass, golf or fishing. It just seems that winter has dragged on forever!!

Ole & Sven

Ole and Sven were taking a vacation in Sven’s new camper. As usual they got lost and were wandering around a strange town trying to find the highway. Sven was just starting down a steep grade when he  slams on the brakes. 

Ole: “Vat da heck did ya do dat for??” 

Sven: “Vel, dat sign dere says: ‘Low Bridge, no vehicles over twelve feet high’. Dis here camper is thirteen feet high.”

Ole: “Cripes Almighty, Sven, dere ain’t no cops around here. Yust hit da gas pedal and go for it!”

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What do you like with your coffee….sugar??” Bee Boop!!
