Oh dear.

 ::)

I am really inconsistent.  My first game was HORRIBLE, a score of 89!  Not only that, I dropped the ball twice!  I think that with recent weight loss, my fingers have slimmed, and therefore slip off my hand before I intend it too.

I'm going to keep practicing with this ball, but since starting September I'll be bowling twice a week, I'm thinking that in a few months, I'll buy new equipment.  I think a new ball, bag and shoes are in order, and be used properly.

And now, the scores for today's games.

89 - 113 - 125 - 132 - 117 - 118

My first practice session a week ago, I only played three games.  yesterday I played six.  I plan to keep a running tally of my scores over the next few months, until the league starts, to see if I can see improvement.


                 3/12/11    3/20/11  3/20/11

Game 1          109         96            89
Game 2          121       115           113
Game 3          146        110           125
Game 4                       115           132
Game 5                       112           117
Game 6                       129           118
_________________________________________________________________
average:         128        112           115



Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''

Will you play my record? One-track mind!

It will take some time and practice, but you will get there - I have every confidence in you! (despite that Nena business...)

I've been searching online to price new equipment.  I found this ball....do you think it's appropriate?

That's pretty, Chuck, but I think you should get one with holes.

Always practical, Paulie...

but they actually drill the holes after you purchase the ball so that it's customized for your grip.  Or at least that's my experience with my Dad's bowling career.  Chuckie's in the big leagues now!!

Get out!  I never knew that.  But then again, I'm used to candlepin bowling, the real  kind of bowling.

You are correct Lynne.

When I had my current ball drilled, they put my fingers into a device that measured the depth and width of what I would need.  I found that rainbow one online.  I'm hoping they have something like that in a store somewhere.  I'd hate to think what the shipping would be for something like that, and I don't want to give measurements online of the drilling.  I'd like that to be done in person.
