"Maggie, Max and I were on one team. My dad, Maggie's father and John were on the other. I knew we were in trouble when the first three balls I bowled all went into the gutter. My dad, playing baby-style--rolling the ball with both hands, through his knees--got a strike on the first frame."

    1. It's a really good book. I read it back in the 90s. I just randomly picked a book for this weeks 56. A. M. Homes is an awesome author.

  5. Thanks for the laugh! Bowling is so hard, I would most likely roll the ball with both hands too; although, my kids would not prefer it ;) Thanks for sharing!

    1. No problem! I totally suck at bowling. I find the gutter most times. I need those bumpers they have for the kids. I might actually have a chance then. Yes don't dare embarrass the kids. LOL Thanks for stopping by. :)
