It is hard for me to throw anything away that I MIGHT use. The same with paragraphs and sentences. Tonite's entry is the sentences and paragraphs I have culled from my last few entries because the entry was too long. So, yep, I saved them. Here goes:
I think one reason, my brain says daylight is for work and evenings or nights for hobbies is that Sherry and I both learned to bowl while at GITMO. We loved it. But the sport was an evening thing. Once on a non-competition night I bowled a 295, the perfect game is 300! WOW I was fired up when league night came. Ouch, then reality set in, I was back to my 150 average. The guys/gals who are REALLY good are consistent.
Just today I was trying to figure what to do with 6 bowling balls we still have. Would they make good yard decorations? (ideas?) I wonder if the bowling alley will take them.
Real talent shines. Ever shoot pool, play golf or bowl? Ever have a lucky game and think, 'hey that was pretty good.' I remember a couple shots I made on the pool table that were VERY GOOD…… THEN after a while you realize two good shots are not good enough on the pool table, and you realize you really aren’t that good.
Friend Jimmy (http://jimsulliv3.blogspot.com/ ) down in the Miami area says Johnny W will make you think you can dance, sing or shoot pool. ;-) I do faintly remember that in some ports.
I am fortunate to know two good ball players, professionals. Both realized Baseball took more of their time than they were willing to sacrifice. (Have you ever thought of all the road games a player has?) They realized it was not a life for a real family, and quit. Sometimes Life is more important.
I mentioned ‘getting caught’ doing my favorite coin trick with kids. I will display my fading talent of ‘storytelling in chalk’ for a seniors group soon. Send some prayers and positive thoughts my way, Imma need it. ;-O
Remember Johnny CAsh's car, 'One piece at at Time'
