Rockpile – 12-6-2017

Nick Veenendaal put the new high series for the men last Monday Nite rolled a very nice 770 series. A couple of breaks and he could have reached that elusive “800” series. Great bowling Nick!! Doug and Gary Standaert also bowled a couple of good series with scores of 678 and 673 respectively.

[emember_protected] On the women’s side of things, Lori Klinger bowled a dandy 236 game, while Tracy Lawson threw a 209 and finally Cindy Rassbach rolled a 202 game. Good job, ladies!!

Moving to Nevada

A man walks into his bedroom and sees his wife packing a suitcase. He asks, “What are you doing?”

She answers, “I’m moving to Nevada. I heard that prostitutes there get paid $400 a night for what I’m doing for YOU for FREE!”

Later that night, on her way out, the wife walks into the bedroom and sees her husband packing his suitcase. When she asks him where he’s going, he replies, “I’m coming, too. I want to see how you live on $800 a year.”
