Natchez Trip

I just read several days ago of someone complaining that they keep forgetting to take their camera with them so they can get blog pictures... I'm worse than that. I TAKE my camera, but don't take it out of my purse to USE it. Now that is pretty sad!

So you will have to endure another post with no interesting photos of all my Arkansas friends that we met in Natchez, MS this weekend. We really enjoyed seeing them again at the "Rocking Grandma and Grandpa Bowling Tournament". This is the one time each year we get to reconnect with them and it is great to visit and catch up on what is going on in their area. Although we love living here in LA, we miss all the great friends we had in Crossett, AR.

We also got to visit with a couple that live in Natchez. I met my friend Carol and her son at a church retreat six years ago and we instantly became close friends. Her husband George is also a real sweetheart, and we enjoy visiting with them 2 or 3 times a year when we are heading through that area.

For a change, we actually bowled OK this trip. We did not do our usual embarrassing bowling, and both managed to get close to or exceed our averages. BUT today was a WONDERFUL day on the lanes for me!!! My last (of 3 games today) was a 221, with a series of 6 strikes in a row!!! That is not the highest game I have ever bowled, but it is the first time I have had 6 strikes together. I had a total series of 586!! That's not my highest ever, but very close to it. AND our whole team of 4 ladies bowled very well, so we will probably have a little return on our money. When we left, we were in first place, with one more weekend of bowling before the tournament closes. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can hold onto first place.

OK... enough off-topic (non-quilting) post... and next time I promise to get pictures!!

  1. Hi Kat, thanks for visiting my blog and for the nice comment on my basket. Yes, it was a striped fabric that had been bias cut and made for binding and not used. I love the look of it.
    I understand about the camera! I do that all the time. I wish I could still bowl. I miss it so much but my fingers just can't do it anymore so I'll keep them crossed for you. :-)


Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
