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

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.
I looked over, and next to us in the other lane was Landon “Hammy” Daily lying on the floor just like Jethro Clampett. He spent more time on the floor than he did standing up! The ball must have been a little heavy for him.
Barbara Billy, a.k.a. “Ellie May Clampett,” is a bowling superstar. She was tending to four kids, dancing to “The Harlem Shake” and bowling nothing by strikes — amazing! She definitely can multi-task.
Save the world, recycle.
God bless our troops and veterans.
Have a great weekend — and a Happy Easter.
