Hello all - I live in Fremont, CA and have been bowling for about 5 months (on a regular basis). I am a former competitive figure skater and I tend to be hard on myself. I have an arsenal of 3 balls; one is a plastic Columbia from the 70s (Craigslist find) that is 14#, I also have a beautiful Vizibal purple with butterflies ball - great spare ball - but my highest game was bowled entirely with it (147). Go figure. It is 12#. My third ball is a 12# Tropical Storm and it hooks. Sometimes my hook doesn't appear, but most of the time it does. I practiced today and had a HORRIBLE day...I think I had a lot of negative distractions around me (like the people next to me who weren't exercising bowling etiquette)...I have done a few bowling clinics and a few private lessons and hope to take my game to the next level - and not do what I was doing today. 68 78 97 and 68? NO NO and NO! Anyway, that's my story. My husband and I bowl in a league on Tuesdays and I am having a blast but today I was not happy. Sheesh - I bowled my highest game ever 4 days ago - 147.

It's not the years in your life but the life in your years that count.
