We were bowling. True story. We were bowling. Probably only 5 of 40 lanes were being used. Approximate time: 1:30 AM. We had two lanes; one of us bowled the ball…which hit the pins…which brought the Ole’ Bowley widget down to “pick and sweep”. The machine got stuck, shook a bit, made some loud noises and then it was released. The only pin left standing was aflame! We gently spoke “Fire, fire…um… there’s a fire.” The attendant ran a great length to get to Ole’ Bowley. The fire went out before he got to be the hero. The bowling pin looked like a champagne bottle. We were moved to another lane without reduction in price. Mark that down as a nine!
