Saturday, to celebrate the birthdays of two dear friends, our whole big crew of goofballs went bowling. The whole idea of bowling is awesome, isn't it? It's probably not a particularly thrifty activity, but for someone who likes scouring thrift stores for vintage finds, it has quite the retro appeal, even if I'm not good at it. At all. I scored 80 points in the game Saturday, and felt good about it. I even got two spares! But the real point of telling you all this is to share the pictures! I posted the pictures of people having fun on Facebook already, but I saved all the kitschy goodness for you all!
|The moon through the window of the van on 70 north of|
downtown, on the way there.
|Crest Bowl, in Florrissant, MO has an awesome|
old mid-century sign. LOVE IT!
|And look, the moon made it into that shot, too :) |
So you know I had to give him some up-close attention!
|Look how handsome he is!|
|Check it out - a bowl-relièf!|
|I don't know what the key is to, but I LOVE the keychain!|
And look- tiny pencils! They play a part in the two kitschiest
family activity/sports in the world. I heart tiny pencils.
|Concession stand, and the bar/pool-hall entrance.|
|Look at all the colors! Why don't they make|
footballs and baseballs in lots of random colors,
with swirls and sparkles and stuff?
|The Glow Machine was not old - it's a vending machine|
for glow-sticks and whatnot. But it LOOKS fantastic.
|I love bowling shoes! You have no idea the amount of personal|
restraint I have had to exercise not to sneak out with them in the past.
