Bowling and China Buffet

Every Monday afternoon the folks from Torrey Oaks and Peace River get together for bowling at the local alley. Today there was a group of about 19 that joined in for the fun. Rich and I were invited, but had declined. We figured it's been somewhere between 28 and 30 years since either of as had bowling ball in our hand. My thumb continues to give me problems, so I'm not able to play even if I wanted. We decided to go down and watch the games and cheer them on.

This picture alone should tell you how long it's been since we've seen the inside of a bowling alley. We had as much fun watching the automated score keeper as we did watching the folks bowl. (Well - almost anyway!)
Here are the ladies. Each picture was taken after they had bowled a STRIKE!!!!
Same for the guys. Smiling faces and clapping all around after the perfect 10!
Following the games, most of the group were headed for the China Buffet for a late lunch/early dinner. If you arrive before 4:00 you get the Lunch Price PLUS the Senior Discount. By this time, my batteries were running low - so this picture didn't come out that great. But we still had a great time, lots of laughter, and lots of good food.

By the way - Rich said he was bowling next Monday!!
