Monday Moments & More about Myself

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 

I used to bowl in a duckpin league when I was in my late 20's and early 30's.  I loved it, and my highest score was 222.  I am not a big sports fan, but I do love to watch the PBA (Professional Bowler's Association) tour, as I actually understand the game very well, as I have bowled myself.  I love to watch figure skating, I find it very relaxing and enjoyable.

I cannot wear wool, as I have very sensitive skin, so I opt for polar wear and other materials that don't irritate my skin.  

Please stay tuned, because I will be sharing more about myself, and in more depth, in tomorrow's post. Thank you so much for listening.  :)

The videos I have selected for this post are:

  3. Hi Linda,

    I like your way of thinking. I'm sorry for the osteoarthritis, and it must be pretty chilly getting around Montreal at the moment. I love your city.

    Take care,

    Barbara

  4. The brighter pink camellia is lovely as are the words.
    Can relate to wanting nice fabric next to the skin. My mother was allergic to wool.
    I presume when bowling, you mean 10 pin. I used to play also in competitions long ago :) It's lovely to read about you.

  7. Hi Linda, I too have to choose fabric. I have to avoid those non sweat absorbent ones. I sweat a lot and wrong fabric causes skin problem. I like the balloon video, I know how a do a few twists and made the children in church school very happy.

  10. Oh Princess Sassy Pants, you got me again. Our kids and dh did 5 pin bowling while growing up. They still bowl (both 5 and 10 pin) occasionally.

  12. Good morning, dear Linda! When I was a boy I loved to watch a television show called Duckpins For Dollars. I played duckpins a few times and bowled at tenpins lanes close to my home. I also enjoyed watching televised PBA tournaments as well as a program called Make That Spare in which pro bowlers attempted to convert difficult spares for cash prizes. I also love to watch figure skating.

    My favorite video today was about the power of the lowly lemon to elevate our spirits, giving new meaning to that familiar adage about life giving us lemons.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda, and have a happy Monday!

  13. thank you for sharing more tidbits about yourself! i'm not a fan of sports in general, but bowling is OK for me, since it's not too strenuous and it's indoors. i must admit, i'm a bad bowler though! :)

  14. I do believe that bitter trials are blessings in disguise. I'm always happier, stronger, and wiser afterwards. Have a great week.

  18. Yet another similarity between you and I - I can't wear wool next to my skin either...it really itches!
    Thank you so much for all these wonderfully inspirational videos and quotes. I realize I've said that before...but they never cease to inspire me! :)

  24. The Accecptance video looks like it was shot here in the Pacific NW.

  25. I can't wear wool, either, and both my mother and my husband have spent big bucks on items of wool. It's not a phase, people!

    My middle son and his girlfriend of eight years are balloon artists; he is also a magician. They also do face painting at parties as a sideline. It's pretty lucrative when there is work. I'm amazed at some of the stuff they do.

  27. Old man kidnapped by kids - so funny.

    I cannot wear wool unless I wear a cotton shirt underneath.

  28. I bowled a couple of times as a child, but it wasn't particularly an activity we got into. I know one of the other branches of the family, a number of cousins, were more serious about it.

  29. We love figure skating and used to watch all the shows. But lately we have kind of lost touch and don't know the skaters. I also used to love duckpins! It is easy on the shoulders and more senior friendly. I am enjoying getting to know you!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow, you scored 222! That's amazing! I've played bowl in the past a little..but I'm not good at all. I enjoy watching figure skating, too.
    The image of Princess Sassy Pants & Co is so cute. Unicorns asking that question. So funny!

  45. Though I never played on a team, I used to enjoy bowling for fun myself (it's near impossible for me physically these days) as a child and teen, and have been allergic to wool my whole life, so that's two more things we have in common, dear Linda.

    Countless hugs coming your way,
    ♥ Jessica
