    Well, last night started off with a hurry but from there it all went south.

    First game was a 246, started off with 2 spares and then strung along a 4 bagger, a 9 pin count with a spare conversion and then punched out.
    Second game the carry down was affecting me and I wasn't hitting my mark so ball kept going high, had several splits and not many strikes for a 177.
    3rd game was a repeat of game 2, but an extra split thrown in for good measure, kept making adjustments and made a ball change for a frame, but my thumb was too swollen for that ball. Ended game 3 with a 156.

    First night series of 579. Welcome back to league bowling. Already blown my goal to not throw below 600 this year in the first night out. Oh well, pressure is off, LOL. I tied for low man on team for the night. As a team I believe we too 6 of 8 points.

    On to my fun Thursday league.

    You seem the opposite of me. I usually start slow (often my first ball goes straight into the right side gutter) and then end up throwing a gem in the 3rd game.

    Bowling night in my fun league. Started the night off pretty poorly, basically following up on my Tuesday night game 2 and 3 performance. Game 1 168, game 2 I finally got my act together and started striking, doubled to start and then had a poor shot leaving the 3-6-9-10 and converted it, traded strikes and 10 pins and converting them, and finished game with 5 strikes for a nice 236. Game 3 was much of the same started out with 2 spares, doubled, 10 pin which I converted, another double followed by a 10 pin and again converted, then punched out for a nice 237 game and 641 series.

    Game 1 we won by 30 pins despite my poor performance, game 2 we took by 1 pin and I needed to strike out to put it away. Always feels good to do that. 3rd game I didn't think we had a chance, but it was down to their anchor and me. I went up first and struck out, their anchor needed 2 marks to win. He had a 9 count to start and converted, then needed 9 to win by 1 pin and he struck. Took 3 of 4 for the night, so very happy with that.

    Started out my night with a pretty good read on the lanes. Used my Disturbed this game and started out with a strike, 2nd frame ball sailed out on me and I thought for sure it was going in the gutter but it came back and left a very light hit for a 4-10 split. Traded a strike then a spare in 3 &4, then rang off the next 6 before the Disturbed went a bit heavy and leaving a 4-7 and ended up with a 236.

    Changed balls to my First Blood and went Dutch until the 7th frame where I doubled up and then went real heavy due to a tug and left the big four, picked out the 4 on the spare attempt. Then left a 10 pin, converted, left a 4 pin and converted in 10th frame and then left a stone 9 pin to finish out with a 188.

    Game 3 started out a bit weird and left a 7 pin, doubled, then tugged again and left a 3-6, then a 10 pin and converted, struck, then another 7 pin, 4 bagger and then left a 7 count for a 234.

    Total series 658 which I am happy about. With exception to 2 open frames with splits I was pretty pleased with my spare pick ups.

    Pretty good night of bowling. Started the first game using my Disturbed and tugged going a bit high to begin the game and leaving a 6-10, doubled after that and then left a 10 pin which I did not convert. 3 in a row after that and then left a pocket 7-10 split, Uggh!!! Doubled and then went high again for another 6-10 and a 209 game.

    2nd game started out with the first 4 frames leaving 10 pins, 3 of which I converted. Switched balls after none of my adjustments worked after leaving those 10 pins to my First Blood. Went sheet after that for a 246 game. Each ball I threw this game felt really good and were nice pocket hits. Very slightly off leeving those 10 pins, but what could have been if I had just a little help in the carry department.

    3rd game started out with a stone 9 pin, which I shamefully did not convert, went wide right by about 2 inches. Struck next frame and then dropped speed a bit and went high for a 3-6-10 leave, picked that up and then had a 4 bagger, again dropped speed and left a 3-6-10. 3 more strikes and then left a 10 pin on fill frame for a nice 235 game.

    Series of 690. Pretty happy with the night.

    Another solid night of bowling. First game started with the Disturbed and began with a double followed by a 10 pin which I converted, sruck, went light leaving the bucket and converted it and then ran off 6 in a row with an 8 count(6-10) to finish out the game with a nice 257.

    Started to struggle the 2nd game a bit and kept moving and hitting heavy. 4-7 to being with and converted, stone 8 converted, a bad break and left a 7-9 split, then a 6-7 split, changed balls and went with the First Blood, left 2 9 counts(a 4 and a 10) both converted, then went heavy for a 3-6-10, which I tugged the heck out my spare ball and picked out the 3 from it for my 3rd and final open of the night. Turkeyed and then left a 6 pin which I picked up for a 178.

    Third game I made another move and left a 7 pin converted, moved again heavy with a 3-6 and picked it up, moved another board and shifted target forward from the arrows bit heavier with a 4 pin picked up, another 4 pin picked up. Changed balls again to my weakest ball the U-Turn and put a 4 bagger together, then a 9 count 10 pin picked up, doubled and then left a 7 count(4-7-10) split in the fill frame for a nice 232 and a solid 667 series.

    We took all 4 games tonight, 2nd game we only took by 2 pins and our 3rd game we took by 4 pins. Solid performances all around for our team, low man was a 623, high was a 696. Feel like I am finally figuring out the shot at this house and how much drier the lanes get compared to my Thursday night league.

    Solid night of bowling, lanes were pretty well fried, would send my Disturbed out to the 5 board standing at about 35 and it would hit heavy. That ball moves like crazy. Had to ball down 2 times before half way through 2nd game.

    First game started with a bad tug from me and went very high for a 3-6-7-10 split, turkey then a couple 7 and 8 count spare frames, struck, then 7 and 9 count spares, struck out in 10th for a 213.

    Second game started with a double and went heavy leaving a 6-7-10 split, next frame left a 6-7 split which I picked up. Traded strikes and spares until 9th frame and punched out for a 211.

    Third game was all clean finishing up with 5 in a row for a nice 234 and a 658 series.

    Spare shooting tonight was real good. Most of the spares left were from going a bit high all night long so mostly right side leaves.

    Another good, solid night of bowling.

    First game started with a stone 8, then I doubled, left a 10 pin which was converted, then ran off the last 8 for a nice 269. Used my First Blood for the entire game.

    Second game started with the front 6, total of 14 strikes in a row when combining the last 8 from game 1. Went heavy in the 7th with a 6-7-10, then left a 10 pin and converted it, heavy again with a 6-10, then struck out for a nice 243. Used the First Blood this game.

    Third game the lanes were pretty well fried, started with a strike and then went heavy for another 6-7-10, 10 pin converted, a 2-5-7 which was kind of weird, doubled, stone 9 pin, 6-10, strike, another stone 9 and finished out with a strike and a 181. I should have learned from last week and balled down to begin this game, but stuck with the First blood for the first 4 frames. My fault and will not make mistake next week.

    269-243-181 for a 693 series, was high man for the night. 2nd was my friend Mike with a 692. With the 2 first games being so good, I should have at least had a 700 series. But I am happy to have bowled so well. We took all 4 games as a team(3rd week in a row) and when one of us was down, another was right there to pick them up. I think we have a real shot to win this high average league. I am really very happy with my spare pick ups. My 10 pin pick ups have been much improved lately.
