We had a couple dandy bucks come in over the weekend. Dylan Dikeman came through with a 16-pointer with a 22 inch spread, while Brady McCarthy registered his nice 11 point buck with a 16 inch spread. Thanks fellas. They’re beautiful deer!!
We have the rest of the week off regular league bowling but will resume the regular schedule this weekend for the Ma and Pa leagues!!
We had our Phoenix oiling machine gone through this past weekend, so I’m interested in seeing what kind of scores will be posted next week!!!
I see the Packers and Vikings go at it this coming Sunday night. Should be a good game, I hope!! The Badgers go after the “axe” again this Saturday as they will be playing the Gophers!!

May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump,
May your yams be delicious
and your pies take the prize.
and may your Thanksgiving dinner
stay off your thighs!!
At local taverns, pubs, and bars, people drank from pint-sized and quart-sized containers. A bar maid’s job was to keep an eye on the customers and keep the drinks coming. She had to pay close attention and remember who was drinking in “pints” and who was drinking in “quarts”, hence the phrase “minding your P’s and Q’s”.

A Free Ride
Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and every year Morris would say, “Esther, I’d really like to ride in that helicopter.”
Esther always replied, “I know Morris, but that helicopter ride is fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars”.
One year Esther and Morris went to the fair, and Morris said, “Esther, I’m 85 years old. If I don’t ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance.”
To this, Esther replied, “Morris that helicopter ride is fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars.”
The pilot overheard the couple and said, “Folks, I’ll make you a deal. I’ll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and don’t say a word I won’t charge you a penny! But if you say one word it’s fifty dollars.”
Morris and Esther agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word.
When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris and said, “By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn’t. I’m impressed!”
Morris replied, “Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Esther fell out, but you know, fifty dollars is fifty dollars!”
