This Week's Theme - SPORTS


Tenpin Bowling was my favorite sport for many years. In fact I was the champion tenpin bowler of our community in the associate division for quite sometime. Had to stop when I was diagnosed to have carpal tunnel syndrome. This photo was taken when my team in the hospital where I work won the championship over 25 other competing companies in 1994. Those were the days my friends....

    Great shot! I am doing my rounds late which means early for you! I am doing my Photo Hunt on Father's Day but I won't post it until tomorrow!
    I am a horrible bowler! I just never was able to throw the ball!!

    I used to play bowling but the small ones. Those were years and years ago. It must be a bad feeling when you someone playing and you can't.
    My Photo Hunt is up too.

    I admire anyone who can tenpin bowl. Here five-pin bowling (with small balls) is very popular. I still feel like 1994 was not a long time ago.

    My photo is up.

    I use to bowl, it's fun, but I don't think I'd like playing against you!! You are a champ!

    Mine is up!

    I like to go bowling but never played on a league. My mom did... I just never took the time, I played softball instead :) I should go bowling soon, it's been a while

    MY SATURDAY PHOTO - MY Father IS POSTED!


    FATHER:

    Before I was myself you made me, me
    With love and patience, discipline and tears,
    Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

    Allowing me to sail upon my sea,
    Though well within the headlands of your fears.
    Before I was myself you made me, me

    With dreams enough of what I was to be
    And hopes that would be sculpted by the years,
    Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

    Relinquishing your powers gradually
    To let me shape myself among my peers.
    Before I was myself you made me, me,

    And being good and wise, you gracefully
    As dancers when the last sweet cadence nears
    Bit by bit stepped back to set me free.

    For love inspires learning naturally:
    The mind assents to what the heart reveres.
    And so it was through love you made me, me
    By slowly stepping back to set me free.

    I bowled on a team once in a hospital where I worked, too. I remember having so much fun! I don't think we ever won anything, though ;~)

    Have a great weekend!

    I love your photo and am sad that you had to give up something you loved due to something health related. Ahhhh....yes, those were the days!! =o)

    I went bowling for the first time last year, and I loved it! But I stopped because I couldn't stand the cigarette smoke in the place, and the owner refused to ban smoking, so I haven't gone back.

     
  • At 6/17/2006 10:17 PM, Blogger Leesa

    Wow, I haven't bowled in years. I did enjoy it though!

    10 pin bowling is wicked popular around here, too!

    Thanks for visiting me, btw :-)

    I am not sure if I have heard of 10 pin bowling - what's the difference with this and regular bowling? I did not know there were different kinds. Can you tell I DON'T bowl! :0

    Thanks for stopping by!
