Who Will Get the Turkey?

Shanna informs me that, when bowling, if you score a strike three times in a row its called a turkey and tonight All Hands is descending en masse on North Hill Bowl for a bit of pin-smashing action. Yes, after spending all day on their feet, hauling  bins full of soggy drywall, and shovelling sewage out of basements, what everybody wants to do is hurl heavy balls around and wear previously worn, ill-fitting shoes. Sounds great guys but I have a pressing appointment with the shower, followed by an early night with my thoroughly thrilling, amazingly crappy spy novel.

In other news, a team of twenty accountants came out today and both team leaders reported that they totally rocked it! Not just number crunchers in this state, Brady Martz showed that the usually desk-bound can give even the most hardened volunteers a run for their money when it comes to mucking and gutting in Minot. Thanks for all your help guys.
