BEST PART ABOUT BOWLING: "It's good exercise and it's just fun to throw it. Up north we used to play candlepin (with a lighter ball) and I never thought I could even lift a big ball, never mind throw it. My husband and I both enjoy bowling."
WORST PART ABOUT BOWLING: "I don't think there is a bad part about bowling. I guess, if your arm goes off and you throw a gutter ball."
BEST PART OF YOUR GAME: "Just having a good eye where the middle is."
WORST PART OF YOUR GAME: "When I have just the one pin up there. I have to practice a little bit at getting that. Maybe I need a few lessons."
BRUSH WITH PERFECTION: "I have bowled 200 three times. The most recent one was last year. I hope to have one this year, but we just started up again."
