Rockpile – 12-13-2017

The Saturday Nite Live Mixed couples finished the first half this past Saturday Nite and the Wink-Mrdutt team took first place. Nice job guys!!

We will be having our annual Christmas Team Tournament in a couple of weeks. Spots are filling up fast so if your team would like to bowl, stop in or call for a time and date. This Tournament runs from Dec. 22-30.

Jason Maes came close to that elusive “700” series last week as Maes rolled a nice 686 series. Nancy Thompson converted the very difficult 6-7-10 split last Wed. Nite. Great shot Nancy!!!

Heart Attack

A husband and wife are on the 9th green when suddenly she collapses from a heart attack! “Help me dear,” she groans to her husband.

The husband calls 911 on his cell phone, talks for a few minutes, picks up his putter, and lines up his putt.

His wife raises her head off the green and stares at him. “I’m dying over here and you’re putting?”

“Don’t worry dear,” says the husband calmly, “they found a doctor on the second hole and he’s coming to help you.”

“Well, how long will it take for him to get here?” she asks feebly.

“No time at all,” says her husband. “Everybody’s already agreed to let him play through.”

A Little Sunday Humor

A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car.

His father said he’d make a deal with his son, “You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little and get your hair cut. Then we’ll talk about the car.”

The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he’d settle for the offer and they agreed on it.

After about six weeks his father said, “Son, you’ve brought your grades up and I’ve observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I’m disappointed you haven’t had your hair cut.”

The boy said, “You know, Dad, I’ve been thinking about that, and I’ve noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair, and there’s even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair.”

The dad replied, “Did you also notice that they all walked everywhere they went?”
