Thanks - Day Nimewo Onz

Today I am thankful for . . .

Automated Bowling Scores.

Glen and I went bowling for our date night, and I know once upon a time I learned about how bowling scoring worked. Alas, I cannot remember. (well, glen re-explained it to me tonight. it sounded familiar.) But I've never gone to a bowling alley where I've had to do the scoring myself. It's always been generated for me, usually accompanied by fun little animations to rub in your gutter balls and celebrate your strikes. I'm glad I don't have to figure it out myself.

But maybe I should remember how to do it, because it's always good to have a little knowledge to spare.

Grand Junction High School had a bowling appey located one block away when your mother and I were growing up.
We actually went over to bowl for 2 weeks each year during PE for a rotation into that sport, and you better believe that automated scoring hadn't even been thought of in 1971.
Therefore I pride myself in knowing how to score bowling. (but I never did learn how to use a slide ruler)
