Bowling too? How cool! I don't recall any of my grandparents bowling...maybe they did at one time, before I was born, though I don't recall hearing about it...but my parents did. I went quite a bit with them, from babyhood. They used to take me when I was fussy as an infant, lol!
Oh yes, and we even went into one when I had my heatstroke around 2, since every place was not air conditioned then, as they tend to be now, but bowling alleys often were.
And, of course, when they just played. Unfortunately, the bowling balls and bags, and the golf clubs, were gotten rid of in my mother's last year, so I don't have any of those items.
Now books they did. One grandmother had wonderful books that I'd sit on the floor, back to the bed, and read...every time we visited! Loved it!
Oh, I do hope that you get the books.
