There were a few Thursday Nite league bowlers who had some nice games this past Thursday night. Jackie Bach was the leader of the pack with a 229 while Tracy Lawson and Carey Casey each bowled a pair of 223 games. Bach also had the high series with a 592!!
Chris Turner and Mark Wink were last week’s top single game leaders with a 267 and 265, respectively. Both of them bowl on the Men’s Hometown League.
9-pin cranks up, starting on Superbowl weekend.
Speaking of Superbowl, our Packers ran into a buzz saw against the 49ers this past Sunday. They still had a great year!! Maybe next year!! My prediction: KC 36, 49ers, 31.

Quote of the Week
“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” – Dolly Parton
Farmer and church
A farmer was walking down the street in a small Wisconsin town and was stopped by the pastor’s wife. “We’ve missed seeing you in church lately,” she said politely.
“After all, a man doesn’t have to go to church to be a good Christian, does he?” the farmer hedged.
“No,” the clergyman’s wife answered. “He doesn’t. And a woman doesn’t have to be married to be a mother either, but most people seem to think it is a good idea.”
Farmer and his heifer
A tight-wad farmer was approached by a stranger one day, and the stranger asked, “How much is that prize Jersey heifer of yours worth?”
The farmer scratched his chin for a moment and then asked, “Are you the tax assessor or did you kill her with your pickup truck?”
