I have to tell you what I bowled last night. I bowl with 4 other ladies..on a MENS league!
I started off just nasty.. a 134.. Oh could it get worse?? I love to bowl My average WAS 165...it's been going down and down to a 159... Oh great horrors... :( I have the lowest average on my team. We just got back from state and I got a 208. I thought I was on my way back up..but no.. I threw a 134... So I tried real hard in the second game.. and I still got open frames... I was getting so disappointed..my team ladies have averages in the 180's and 170's... They must hate me by now....ooooo... I wanted to cry..then I got mad..MAD!! I tell ya!! I started to whip that ball with such a hook ya'd think a MAN was throwing it!! I got 3 strikes in a row Whoo HOO! But I opened in the tenth frame... BUT I got my average and then some I threw a 189... BUT we lost that game and I was still mad.. SO we started the third game.. I'm in a bowling frenzy.. I'm whipping that ball..it's hooking like mad.. I got strike after strike I threw 7 strikes in a row!! This isn't me??? Who's bowling in my body?? Everybody's cheering..men are stepping aside to let me bowl first.. Men are waiting till "I" bowl... they are slapping my hand..... OHHhhh this is gonna hurt when I don't get a strike.... and I got 8 pins and a spare in the 8th frame... OOhh they all moan....... Like I don't feel bad that I didn't strike...but now I let them all down..... sigh... I whipped that ball in the 9th frame and got a stike...YEA!!!! I finished with a 8 spare 8 in the tenth frame for a 256 game.. WHOO HOO!! my highest game ever.. AND the third highest game for ladies on the board on the bowling alley's wall of fame. I'm have the highest scratch game for ladies on the league and highest game with handicap for ladies.. I can only get a prize for one or the other... HAD I gotten 3 more pins, I would have had 100 pins over my average.... but I'll get a patch for 75 pins over..something I never never thought I could do... AND we won 2 games to boot!!
So that was my bit of fun to start my week off.
I printed off more labels so I am well stocked. I have some dolls to finish for a shop here in town. and I have a clean house!

WHOO HOO!! I FINALLY GOT MY 200 GAME AT A STATE TOURNAMENT!!!!
I bowled my average (154 we use last years average) for the team event on Friday night... nothing exciting. We bowled doubles and singles Sat afternoon. Doubles again I got my average( 177, 164, and 154)..and I was getting more strikes than I normally get..but I'd get a split or miss an easy spare and have to start over with strikes again. THEN singles started only 3 games left of the 2009 tournament 3 more tries to get the glory of a 200 game and the PIN....... I thew a 151 game UGH!!!! 2 games left....... I started off the second game...4 strikes in a row ( YIPPIEE) then!!! a SPLIT ( OH NO!!!) I came back with a strike, then 3 ..9 sparess then in the tenth frame ( I was shaking soooo bad) I threw and got 6 pins!! OMG! I had to make this spare and get at least 2 more... shake...shake.. I threw the ball and it was perfect!! I MADE the spare!!! WHOO HOO..now all I had to do was keep it in the middle.. I can't even walk... my knees are rubber..... I threw the ball with such accuracy..( lordy was that ME that threw the last ball??) AND AND AND I GOT A STRIKE!!! WHOOO HOOOO!!!! I got a 208!!! OH YEA!!
I they gave me my pin, announced my name over the PA with all the other ladies who were lucky enough to also get a 200 game... Over 200 lady bowlers were bowling at the same time as we were. SIGH.....................Then I had to throw my last game I didn't care.. I got my pin... I threw a 157....
We drove home Sat night. The rest of my team stayed over till today..and as you can see in the back of my ring picture..it's snowing. 1 car full of my team mates made it back but the last car of ladies, about 3 hours behindthe car that left this morning,, stopped for an accident and then they got side swiped. They are OK but shook up.. I don't know how they are getting back.. I offered to go and haul their car back with our hauler, but one of their hubbies had already left to go and get them. I think we have over 5 inches of snow already.
Love the snow but I wish my friends had made it back safe. We knew the snow was comming and we were the only ones with the diesel truck! The littlest car was the last to leave...go figger. I had to get back home to take care of my pets..and they stayed behind to shop and swim in the motels pool.
