Rockpile – 3-7-2018

Audrey Maes had the high game last week of all of the ladies as Maes put up a nice 245 game on the Wednesday Afternoon league. Audrey bowls on my Leaker’s gals team.

Gary Standaert was “oh so close” to that “700” mark last week but came up a tad short as Gary chalked up a 696 series on the Hometown League (maybe this week, Gary!)

The Old Farmer Man

The old farmer man had a large pond in the back, fixed up nicely with picnic tables, a barbecue pit, horseshoe courts, and some apple and peach trees.  The pond was properly shaped and fixed up for swimming when it was built.

One evening, the old guy decided to go down to the pond and look it over.  He hadn’t been there for a while.  He grabbed a five gallon bucket to bring back some fruit.

As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee.  As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny dipping in his pond. As he approached, he made the women aware of his presence.

At once, they all went to the deep end.

One of the women shouted to him, “We’re not coming out until you leave.”

The old man frowned, “I did not come down here to watch you young ladies swim naked, or to make you get out of the pond naked.”

Holding the bucket up in the air, he said, “I’m here to feed the alligator.”

Some old boys can still think fast!
