Can You Guess??
Yes, on Saturday night the full "circle" decided that we would like to revisit our youth and go bowling. Most of us have not participated in this sport in ?? years and all of us were definitely in the beginner category. That being said, it must be noted for the record, that everyone had a score of at least 50 and The Bride was the grand champion, beating out "Two Timing, Too Tall" Jeff by over 10 pins and her score was over 100! Other than the scores you really couldn't tell we were beginners because we all had flawless style and you can see in the photo to the right!
We all had lots of fun...and inexpensive fun at that. We chose a very small bowling alley in a not so "sophisticated" neighborhood. There were only 10 lanes in the entire place. It was $2.50 per person per game so the six of us (count the feet in the picture at the top) had a very cheap time. Dinner later at a small restaurant near by was excellent and also a very good value. A great evening and a friendship "fix" for all.
Sunday morning "Guitar" John and I conducted a Muffler Man hunt. We left bright and early and headed north of the metropolitan area to Greeley Colorado. This is the location of one of only two original Muffler Men known to exist in all of Colorado. When we arrived in Greeley we weren't able to find him at first. A really rotten feeling came over us both.....it was like traveling all the way to the Louvre and not being able to see the Mona Lisa!
Go with me on this one people. Muffler Man is important stuff with some people, and who's to say that it's not art? Right? Beauty/art is in the eye of the beholder. Look at Muffler Man's smile in the picture at the right. Look at that enigmatic expression. I tell you, Mona's got nothing on him! If Leonardo DaVinci had fiberglass, who knows what he might have done? Mona might have been the mother of Muffler Man.
Anyway, as you can see by the picture below, we did find him. He's a great specimen and in great shape. Note that I am standing under Greeley Muffler Man giving the Muffler Man salute!
During the trip we also got some great photos of classic neon signs and a couple of old travel trailers, but I don't want to overload you with "alternative" interests today so I'll save those for another post.
No travel again for me this week so further adventures with Muffler Man will have to wait.
Thanks for visiting!
