Wednesday's bowling night reminded me of 'The Beverly Hillbillies'

March 29, 2013

I went bowling Wednesday night at Strikes-a-Lot with the Double Branch Church. It was just like “The Beverly Hillbillies” came to town. I never laughed so hard in my life.
Brandon Wann and I teamed up against Johnny and Sara Baker, who creamed us 238 to 184. We really tried, but I knew the Bakers knew how to bowl because both of them bowled strikes on their first attempts. I still can't believe they beat us. We even had a bowling coach, “Superstar” Larry Wann. Back in the 1980s, he was a bowling machine. I bet he still has his ball, and, at one time, thought about turning pro.
