J--Jacob: After throwing a gutter ball, picking up all ten pins on the spare shot.


(I've never heard this before).


"Que Sera, Sera" What will be, Will be.

Feel your emotion, don't feed your emotion.

(For my bowling)...The only difference between try and triumph is a little umph!

We could learn a lot from crayons... Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

Sorry about the confusion as I really didn't think about an order to this game. The only thing I could think of at the time was how many time I or others around me have said they are going to quit bowling because of a streak of bad games or weeks or seasons.........................

Not that many people really do quit (although I do know of several who did), but anyhow, that's where I came up with the out of order Q, which really isn't a bowling term anyway.

Goodness, perhaps I should just quit typing!!

Cat, I hope you just got out of order and don't stop playing the game or leave the team.

Back in order:

Z = Zero (what we get if we roll a first ball gutter or don't knock down any pins on a spare shot)

Next: "A"

J Joyce bowling

Ha Ha I am still trying to get my back right so I can bowl Tuesday, I will know Tuesday morning. I have a 12 pound ball at home and I am going to see if I can lift it and throw it doun my hall way on the carpet. If I can I will go if not another week off no reason to push it.

Smile Joyce

I am a very easy going gal that loves people and wants to know as many as I can. I want to make new friends so I can enjoy more of life. When people get to 55 or 60 there are some that think life should be over but guess what it is just beginning. Maybe 50 years ago it was over but not now people are living longer and working in their 70's. I would have been if I didn't have leukemia and it does not stop me but I have good days and bad, so being home if I need rest, I rest, at work I couldn't do

Bowling has many terms special to our sport, as well as names of bowling balls, equipment companies, types of tournaments, and more. Let's go through the alphabet with some of these. Remember: As long as it pertains to bowling it is fair game. Ready to play?
