well, one of my goals for 2011 was to revive my blog… how am i doing so far??? FAIL
i actually do have a pretty good excuse though…
a couple weeks ago i woke up feeling like someone was sitting on my chest. of course i immediately concluded i was dying of heart failure… the doctor said it was “just a virus” and sent me packin with no drugs, just an “it should get better on its own”… WELL 5 days, a trip to urgent care, and a chest xray later, i had pneumonia!
needless to say i not only haven’t felt like computing, i haven’t taken any pictures, done much of anything productive, or even made it through a whole day of work in two weeks!
so what could i possibly be here to ramble on and on about??? well, BOWLING FOR SIGHT of course!
many months ago, anne and i made the trek to idaho to participate in a bowling fundraiser for my local Lions Club
(a mullet is preferred but not required for membership)
the Lions Club mission is: “To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.” i am proud to say members of my family have been involved with Lions Club for many years, and i was excited to get to go home and participate in the bowling fundraiser with my family’s team!
i never blogged about the big day, and have regretted it. so when i read GDW‘s do gooder post… it reminded me of our bowling extravaganza, and i feel i should give it its proper moment in the spotlight!
so… LET’S BOWL!
we invaded the local bowling alley, “Freedom Lanes” – yes, you read that right!
we had official pins (WARNING: blinking pins may cause seizures)… and we went all out and got a team sponsor, “umpire camps”
while we were there to help raise money, and spend time together…
there was hope…
and by god there was triumph!!
now that’s what i call a fundraiser!
