Hello to the bocce friends. It has been a week since I last talk to all of you, I trust you are all keeping up your ban on Wal-Mart, if not the Pope would be very very disappointed. I now go to your letters, and thank you every one who write me.

Great Moments in B.O.O.B.S. History XXIII: The Day the Earth Quaked

It was a sunny July afternoon, the beer was left in the sun, the bocce was enjoyed by all, and the entire world moved.

The turning point came in the second game as the combatants from the Tipp Hill Tossers could not throw a ball without it ending up in the ditch. The final throw was that of Paul Colabufo. All Paul needed to do was simply toss the ball with a medium … Read More »
