Twentynine Palms USMC base is out in the middle of the desert. The base, however, is well equipped with its own hospital, Exchange, Commissary, Golf Course and Bowling Alley.
Last week while we were checking out things we learned the Bowling Alley has free bowling M-W-F from 11:00 AM -1:00 PM. Shoes are $1.50.
The last time we bowled was with Kelly's Wii Fit system. That is a lot of fun and a little too realistic...I get the same bad scores.
So we tried the real thing-- (our MANUAL Wii Fit). It has become pretty popular over the last couple of years and I wonder how many of our readers have a Wii?
Since we don't have one, we opted for the Bowling Center on base: Sandy Hills Bowl.
It has 24 lanes and a nice facility.It has a bowling 'pro shop' and a snack bar.
I really liked the carpet. (I wonder if Pam would go for this pattern in our RV?)
Here is Pam's winning form. She had the high game of the day: 163. I needed to pick up a spare in the last frame and only missed by about a foot. My high game was 158.
About 11:30 a number of Marines showed up and joined us. The slender guy here next to us was rolling 184, a 185 and had a 235. It was fun to watch.

Chairs were turned over from cleaning the area yesterday.
After bowling we went back to the Roadrunner for lunch and I got with it on the computer. I was able to put a few billable hours which was nice.
While I worked, Pam went for a walk. Later, I took a break and went for a run. It was perfect weather here and a nice day.
Pam cooked chicken snitzel inside while I fired up the grill and did some vegetables. It all turned out well. We saw a basketball game and Pam watched a portion of 'Band of Brothers' movie while I snoozed.
Pretty soon it was time for bed and the end of another great day.
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
