Yeah. So that’s supposed to be like the ‘bennifer’ of ‘bowling with my brother’. Pretty fly, right? Wink wink.

My brother asked my family to go bowling a few weeks ago. But of course , it was January, and we all got sick/busy/who knows what the heck what happened in January… But every Friday night it was me calling me or him calling me to express regrets. Finally, we landed on a night when we were all moderately healthy and we actually did it!

My brother used to compete when we were kids, so I’ve seen my fair share of Washington’s bowling alleys, circa the 1970’s and 1980’s. Needless to say, my hours spent at Strawberry Lanes were mostly around the bubble gum machines, the bathroom and the video game machines. While I bowled, I rarely scored anything worth mentioning, so I wasn’t too excited, as a kid, to bowl.

When Dan asked us I didn’t have a strong opinion about it, but was totally amazed at how we Lj’s rocked it! Granted, the kids had bumpers, but they were pretty decent in their form and effort. Bradley was awesome until his arms started causing him fits, I managed to throw a bunch of strikes, and my brother and niece rocked it pretty hard! It turned out to be a really fun night with my brother and his kids that I would never hesitate to repeat!




It makes be happy to see this connection. Love you all!

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
