Bowling Banquet, lemonade set,
and a new blog!

So, today we had our end of year bowling banquet. It was great to get together with all the ladies outside of the bowling alley. Our team held firm on last place but we still walked away with $48.00 each which was awesome. I got high game for the season (226) which was another $20.00 and then each week we do a 50/50 draw - put in $1 for 3 chances to take half the pot which is usually around $12 the other half goes into a pot and so does all the tickets from all the drawings and then they draw names at the banquet for a fiver. Last year I got $45.00 which means my name was drawn 9 times. This year just 5 which means I got another $25 which was awesome! And you thought I bowled because I enjoy it -hehehe. I really do enjoy it this is just the bonus of it all!

We had to take a gift for a prize drawing as well and this is what I took as our team giveaway ~ a handpainted lemonade set ~ painted by me of course! Speaking of our team I was paired up with Jackie and Ellen and we had such a fun time bowling together!

If you haven't check out my new blog yet I hope you'll click on the butterfly to the left and check it out. It's a new place where I can show and share my art.

Thanks so much for visiting me! I am hoping to get my map filled up again with big red dots - disappointed that it archived the dots on the world map on the bottom right of my blog but like my DH said - no one would be able to see the countries if they left all those big red dots all over - I know but I still liked it all covered up!

Have a fabulous day!

Love the lemonade set!

Your bowling team sounds like ours (from waaaaaay back in the day!). I think we clawed our way up to next to last by the end of the "season". But I had one great game, something like 236. Not bad, when you consider my average was around 114. lol I still have the pin they gave me afterwards at the awards ceremony. I was almost embarrassed to accept it, since I knew that game was a total fluke. :)
