Friday Flashback: Bowlerama

Today on Friday Flashback, we zip alllll the way back to Tuesday, upon which I experienced one of the triumphs of my adult life: finally winning Mystery Oldie of the Day on the radio.

With my mongoose-like reflexes I dialed in and correctly identified -- with merely a two-second clip ("for-ev-eerrrrr") to guide me -- "Truly, Madly, Deeply," by Savage Garden.

Which is an oldie now, apparently. It's a song that carries for me a truckload of emotional baggage, as it was released 15 years ago, when I was in the seventh grade. Every time I hear it I feel a little nauseated and sweaty and have flashbacks to junior high dances. And no, I don't remember all the words. But Tim does :) .

Anyway -- the prize for being the Mystery Oldie Super Sleuth was a gift certificate for the local bowling alley. Which brings us to: a flashback to yesterday, and Henry's Very First Bowling Trip.

It was awesome.

So have a truly, madly, deeply good weekend, Babblists.


  1. I love this post. Truly Madly Deeply, I do. (that was our 8th grade dance "song" - and somehow we went with a "garden" theme for the decore. Weird.)
    Henry looks sooooo excited to be bowling! I love it!

  2. I LOVE the pic of Henry holding the bowling ball and looking so truly happy and proud. :-D We should have an Avalon/Momma & Henry/Momma bowling date sometime...It would promise to be epic-ly cute.

  3. Don't worry, Tim... I know all the words, too. :)
