There's no free lunch

But sometimes there's free bowling. We were blessed to get some today.

J woke up this morning with a hankering to bowl. So, after I finished at work we met at the bowling alley near the hospital. The bad news was, we just happened to walk in as they were getting ready to lock up. They're hosting the after-prom party tonight and were closing early to get ready.

The good news was, the very kind lady who owns the bowling alley said, "You know, I'm going to be here for a while doing some things. I'm going to let you go ahead and bowl." It was great. We had the place to ourselves.

Have you ever been the only one in the whole place bowling? It's pretty loud when you throw the ball without any background noise to drown it out. Especially if you prefer the overhand technique to throw the ball like J often does.

When we went to pay, she said it was her treat and then promised J that next time we came she'd take him in the back to show him how the pin machine works. How cool is that?!

Thanks, kind lady!

OK let me get this straight. You get free ice cream at one place and free bowling at another? Hmmmmm I think I am going to have to hang around you more. : )

Away from the hospital that is! LOL!
