No, I'm here with you. 11:55.

Someone shooting fireworks down the road. Dogs going nuts. They think it's hunting season.

I'll throw their toys, just to let them retrieve.

Bowled Seniors this morning. I was doing ok with a 224-215 and midway in the third game, my ball never came back. Neither did the ball on the adjoining lane. We told the desk. Then waited.

After a while, the desk guy came over and said, "they can't find your ball". I was miffed. I could still clearly see the ball just sitting in the back pit on the adjoining lane. But, didn't see mine.

Then, the desk guy came over and said the ball on the adjoining lane was returned 2 lanes over. But, mine was still no where to be found.

It was now a 20 minute delay, and I was getting nervous, as the ball, Widow Maker, was only 2 weeks old. I envisioned gouges, or scratched all over it. Bad things went through my mind.

Then, the lane guy lifted the masking unit front, and was looking for my ball from the front. Never saw this. He then came out on the lane and lifted the underground cover. Stuck his head in with a flashlight. And, shook his head no. Still can't find my ball.

I talked with the desk guy, and expressed my displeasure. We'll get it refinished if we have to, he said. I didn't want to think of it.

Then the lane man came on to the approach, and lifted the floor in front of the ball return. "There it is!", he said. Yep, it was only a couple of feet from me, but under the floor. Seems the rollers stopped, and the ball just sat at the bottom. Whew, that was a relief. It wasn't bouncing around, and getting gouged or banged up. It was just sitting under the floor.

When I got it, I examined it carefully, then cleaned it from some rub marks. It was fine. A 25 minute wait did me in. Anxiety killed me. I couldn't bowl any more after that. Finished the game, and went home.

Working on freeing up my swing at the moment and it feels great! It feels so much more natural but I grab it at the bottom off my swing on the odd occasion by accident -.-

Also: I had two really stupids moment in my last game. I was using "The one" on the left lane and my old "Total NV" on the right lane (my NV is pretty oil soaked and damaged, it's well loved :P) and I accidently picked up my NV and threw it on the left lane. Perfectly on target, but of course it didn't hook up and left me a bucket (Spared it). Then later on I picked up my "715A" and threw that instead of "The one". Perfect pocket hit luckily but what I would call Instant Karma kicked in and left me a solid 8 -_____________-

For the first time ever i stopped in the middle of a game packed up my stuff and went back to the counter and asked for my money back on the remaining games that my son and I did not bowl. The lanes at ZERO oil on them last night. I thru my 2fast twice went between 1st and 2nd arrow and it went in the left gutter, then did the same line with my Piranha and hit the 4, 7 pins, so i got out my Ice spare ball and went brooklyn strike with it. Got so sick of it midway thru the 2nd game i was done. When I talked to the kid at the front he said they had not touched the lanes in almost 2 weeks since leagues were on break for the holidays. That made me even madder. I told him durning break people like to practice and throw new equipment that they may have gotten as a gift. OK i am done ranting now thanks for reading.

The only leagues that were stopped here were on Fri and Sat. All others were in season. It's really tough to bowl on really dry. And, I don't buy the fact that you should learn how to roll on them, since you will never find that condition in normal bowling.

Our Senior group has done this when we practice on Sunday morning. If a fresh shot is not laid down that morning, we all walk off in mass. And, it's not only for us. They do have a Practice league and a couple of gimmick leagues on Sunday.

Good for you.

Well, my local lanes were closed new years eve and new years. But when They are open I know they will oil the lanes if you ask and often they get thrown a 5 spot when they do it. Not by me though.
