Brent Standaert chalked up his “700” series of the year last week as “Bert” rolled a nice 741. Standaert bought a new ball and it was his first nite on the alleys with his new weapon. Good bowling son!!
We cranked up our 9-pin tap tournament last weekend and it got off to a booming start, as we have four “900” series already. Here are the qualifiers so far for the $1,000 First Place Purse: Terry Symanietz 954, Jason Maes 915, Bill Winchester 924, and Brent Standaert 904.
Jason Maes and Brent Standaert are leading doubles competition with an 1819!!

Joke of the Week
Lena Writing to Her Son
Just a few lines to let you know I’m still alive. I will write this letter slowly because I know you can’t read fast.
First the big news. Your Dad heard that most accidents happen close to home so we moved. You won’t know the house when you come home as we can’t send you the address because the last Norwegian family that lived here took the house numbers with them so they wouldn’t have to change their address.
About your father… he has a lovely new job where he is over 500 men. He is cutting grass in the cemetery.
There is a washing machine in the house where we live now, but it ain’t working too good. Last week I put in 14 shirts, pulled the chain and haven’t seen the shirts since.
It only rained twice this week…three days the first time and four days the second time.
About the coat you wanted me to send you. Our Aunt Sue said it would be a little too heavy to send in the mail with them big heavy buttons, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets.
Your sister Mary had a baby this morning. I haven’t found out whether it’s a boy or a girl so I can’t tell you if you’re and aunt or an uncle.
Your Aunt Olga gave up the birth control pill when Uncle John bought a condominium.
Uncle Dick drowned last week in a vat of whiskey at the Norske Brewery. Some of the fellow workers dived in to save him, but he fought them off bravely. We cremated his body and it took three days to put the fire out.
Three of your friends went off the bridge in a pickup. Once was driving, the other two were in the back. The driver got out. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. The other two were drowned. They couldn’t get the tailgate down.
Went to the doctor yesterday and your father went with me. Doc put a small tube in my mouth and said not to open it for ten minutes. Your father wanted to buy the tube.
Write soon, Mother
