I had a birthday last weekend and I decided that a Bowling Party would be great fun.  I actually had one many years ago so the idea to do it again has been on my mind for the last couple of years.  So much so in fact, that I have been collecting bowling trophies since then.  Whenever I came across a bowling trophy or prize I would buy it.  So for several years there has been a shoe box in a closet containing an odd assortment of trophies and treasures abandoned by their original winners.   Well, this was the year!  Check out the vintage bowling shirts!!

I gathered some friends, reserved the lanes using a party plan they offered that included two hours of bowling, shoes and pizza and wings and soda.    So  much for the soda…I bought drinks from the lounge.  I had hoped that the beer would loosen up my stiff joints and I might even get a strike!   LOL – other than our friend, Ron, strikes were pretty scarce all around.  But hey I figured most of us hadn’t bowled in YEARS so what could you expect?  Well, I for one, was hoping muscle memory would take over once I stopped trying – It didn’t!

I have faithfully watched every season of Dancing With the Stars, a/k/a DWS And while it has been noted that as the number of seasons increased, the caliber of the stars has decreased and I guess that was to be expected.  After all there are only so many STARS who want to:  a) learn how to ball room dance, b) lose weight, 3)wear spandex and high heels (I’m referring to the men), 4) get blisters, 5)pull tendons and muscles, 6)Losebecause they all will except for ONE.  So over the seasons, there have been more athletes, more older (but I remember when you were young, Glen!) or aging actresses and actors, and even some pa rticipants in reality TV shows, dear Lord!

BUT this is the FINALS for me!  Bristol Palin?? I don’t think so! STAR?  I don’t think so!

Let’s see, let me think…she’s a star because her mother was an also ran candidate for the presidency? Uh, no, – maybe it’s because she’s an unwed teenage Mommy with a bastard kid? Now there’s a role model for you!  Or maybe ABC is giving this to Bristol BECAUSE Levi is getting his OWN reality show?

I won’t be watching DWS this season and they probably don’t care because I am sure they have taken a poll to see just how many viewers they can pull in by having her!!!!

If you want to watch stars dance WATCH THIS!!!
