BWWWWWAHAHA- what a start to the week. Yesterday was a public holiday here and my Dad had asked us to join him in a family day at his bowling club. It was also the 10th anniversary of my mom’s death so we wanted to spend some time with him too.

So YUP, we said ok, we would play in the family day BOWLS ( as in lawn bowls) tournament with him. As you may have read before I have only played the *fool* with the boys when we go on our family holiday and have never played a full game of 21 ends. But I grew up around the bowling greens with my Grandparents and my parents all playing. So we knew the basic fundamentals- right?? BWWWWWWAHAHAHA- well ok maybe a few, but dang it’s not as easy as it looks and my ass and my thighs are rather stiff today. It’s like doing squats for 3 hours – hee hee.


The *practise* round to show us how to roll and hold the bowl correctly before we played. That’s Nathan in the cap and the little man with the *Wednesday (when they going to break)legs* is my Dad. lol


Changing ends as they call it and my Dad chirping Nathan on the way down. OMG, there was sooo much of that! lol


Nathan proved to be a *natural* and didn’t even have the *titty wobbles* as I called it on his bowls! hahaha, he’s just rolled smooth and online!

I disrupted a competition playing in the lane next to us by holding my bowl the WRONG way and it went in the opposite direction to where I aimed and curled right into their MATCH! BWWWWWWAHAHA- I laughed and apologised so loud that the whole green started laughing too- OY!


Nathan, My Dad and I landed up playing on one team, while Wayne and the other two guys landed up on the other team- you can see Nathan already *chirping* the odds at his dad. haha


Yeah- I couldn’t resist as Nathan took the photo! BWHAHAH

We had a AWESOME fun day and were asked repeatedly to join and competitively- errrrr, not quite ready for that yet- but I will go with my dad and have another game soon. At least I can yak and laugh and not feel toooooo pressurized to try squash my loud laugh- hee hee.
