Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

A new personal best

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿

This morning there was a very light mist around but not enough to get me wet.  I didn't even realize it was misty until I stopped outside.  It was 35 degrees and I'm glad it was above freezing because there would have been a coating of ice over everything.  Every so often a gust of wind would come along.

I walked all over town including both cemeteries and the ball park loop.  It seemed like a weekend this morning.  No people were around and not many cars either.  John the mail truck driver tooted as he passed and that's about it.

Walked 6.2 miles.

Tuesday and you know what that means, bowling day.  Bettye had to bowl left handed because she had surgery on her right hand and couldn't use it.  We all decided that we would use our left hands too for one game. (Ken had to use his right hand because he's left handed.)  After two frames, hysterical laughing and lots of gutter balls we decided on the third frame to go back to right handed bowling, though of course Bettye couldn't.  My two first frames were gutter balls and I bowled a 116.  Wasn't all that bad considering it was only 8 frames.
My second game I topped my highest score EVER of 185 and bowled a 189!!!  The third and last game was 180.  I wish I could keep that up.  : )  It will be interesting to see what I bowl next week!!

The last few weeks we've been going to Walmart afterwards and we did that again today.  We figure we are already in the area so just made Tuesday our shopping day too.

Home just in time for supper and now our usual quiet evening at home.
It's been a fun day.
A happy day to you

Thanks to those of you who told me yesterday's bird was a Junco.  I had forgotten.

I see a 200 game in your near future.
I think it was a neat idea to support Bettye by bowling with your opposite hand, although I can imagine how challenging that must have been.
Sounds like another good outside walk day. Hooray!

I bowl with my left-hand along with most sports, I write with my right

Hello, congrats on your high score game. I have had thumb surgery on both hands, I do not think I could even hold a bowling ball. I love the scenic photos. Great quote! Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

Your bowling scores keep getting better and better! Glad you have been able to walk outside. We are in the middle of a winter storm so probably no outside walk for us today.
Have a great day!

Congratulations on the great bowling score. I hit over 200 once but only that time. A fluke, I think. :) Always enjoy hearing about your walks. Have a great day.

Good job on the bowling. How fun for everyone to try to bowl with the non-dominant hand.

You'll be ready for the pros in no time! Congrats!
