The Alexander City Women's Bowling Association is having a tournament this weekend. The theme was the "Sock Hop." We even crowned a queen during the 9:00 squad...Dianne Naler was this years winner. Once the theme had been established everyone got busy getting their outfits together and there were even prizes given during each flight for best dressed and best decorated bobby socks. I cheated. My bobby socks came from Party City. They were so cute with little poodles on the sides. My team, Strike Up the Band" all wore denim capri's (they were called peddle pushers back in the day), white shirts, letter jackets and scarves. I found some cute saddle shoes on-line and just had to buy them...and wore a 50's style wig. When I first got to the bowling alley no one knew who I was til I talked...it is amazing what a new do will do.BTW...I am the brunette on the right side. We had some of the cutest decorations and the Board of Directors and Officers all had to get in on the picture taking. Angela Jones made it look like she was in the little car we borrowed from Jacob's Ladder. It was a great day of food, fellowship, fun, and some awesome bowling...(me excluded, because I could not hit the broad side of a barn.) I think my bowling ball was confused by the brunette bowling. Maybe if I had taken the wig off I would have done better...anyways...I return to the lanes tomorrow at 10:00 for singles and doubles. I am bowling with MaeLynn O'Neil. I cannot wait...no goofy costume tomorrow. We have matching purple shirts. Hope your Saturday was as fun and eventful as mine. Sleep well.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
