    Today my almost 4yo daughter was hanging out with me for a few hours in the shop. She got bored riding her bike and started prowling around trying to find fun. She spotted these bowling pins I got from @KOPBET about a year ago. I keep forgetting to take em down to our range. She got the pins set up and then started hunting a ball. She found one of those orange self healing target balls and it was game on! Mom showed up and had to give it a shot too.

    No sir but as long as she stayed occupied I didn't have her sweep the shop. What's weird is my 10yo and 13yo like sweeping the shop. I don't complain about it either!

    Ha Ha had to laugh, 71yo guy here sitting in the chair with my foot propped up. Was on bowling leagues for years in Tulsa, usually carried a 220-230 average. Gave it up when I moved to the lake too far to drive on a weekly basis just for bowling. Lady friend I have been seeing wanted to go bowling. Dug out my old ball out of the garage and off we go, three games, fingertip ball, stretch to fit, stuck thumb, what happened to my legs?. Next day my ankle starts swelling, that was a week ago, slowly going down with ice and over the counter meds. Ha Ha. I had fun, almost ready to go back.

    Glad they enjoyed it in your garage, I would save the pins for that, hope you get to take them for real in between. Enjoy them all you can when they are little, they grow up and never return. Ha Ha

    The little one......no. Mom...yep. I almost think the little ones plan was to hit one pin at a time. Some could argue it took more skill. I mean this is shop bowling, there aren't many rules we know of. Lmao

    How long ago were you in the leagues? I did the Thursday Mixer at BA Lanes for several years. Had to give it up when I believe I fractured the middle knuckle of the ring finger on my throwing hand. It never healed right. Ended up calling it quits and gave my bowling equipment to a friends son. That knuckle still gives me problems when it gets cold or the pressure changes.

    Kids still having a good imagination in finding something to do. I got a kick out of your girls at the J.M. Davis "eat and look." Excellent, well behaved kids. You and the wife did GOOD!!!
