Rockpile – 10-11-2017

Again we had a “700” series bowled this week. Doug “Wado” Standaert who bowls on several leagues, rolled a 720 series last Thursday on the Men’s Senior League. The 720 series is currently the highest bowled this year.  Great job, Wado!!!

Nick Veenendaal put up a nice 656 series on the Hometown League last week and Bryan Cress tossed a nice 639.

On the Wednesday Nite Ladies league, Lori Klinger had a good night with a 237 game and a 604 series. Cindy Rassbach rolled a 221 game on the same night. High game and series on the Thursday Nite league went to Peg Heutmaker with a 203 game and 520 series.

Mike Popowitz put up a nice game on the Sunday Nite Mixed League with a 267 game. Also Georgia Leverty converted the 4-10 split Sunday night. We’ll look at a few league leader teams next week.

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says, “What did you do after you licked the envelope….flap??” Bee Boop!

A Lessoned to be Learned

A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.

Four worms were placed into four separate jars. The first worm was put into a container of alcohol. The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke. The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup. The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.

At the conclusion of the sermon, the minister reported the following results:

The first worm in alcohol . . . Dead.

The second worm in cigarette smoke . . . Dead!

Third worm in chocolate syrup . . . Dead!

Fourth worm in good clean soil . . . Alive?!

The minister asked the congregation, “So, my friends? What did you learn from this demonstration?”

Maxine, sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said, “As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won’t have worms!”
