While we were waiting for Marvin and Clarice, Grady and Janette were in our room waiting, we were just talking, the girls at the foot end of the bed by the door hallway, some guy walks into the room, when he sees Grady and I he runs out, we go out in the hall to check and there is a knife laying on the floor of the hall way that was not there before, so what do you think the guy was going to do with two women? and a knife!!!  Needless to say we closed the door and locked it.

We all flew into Orlando and drove up to Jacksonville it rained every morning like clock work at 8am til 9am just when we wanted to go for breakfast, on our way back from Jacksonville we get rerouted by the Highway patrol because of a forest fire inland and it was thick so we had to take a coastal road back to Orlando, and the traffic was terrible thank goodness we left early that morning,. after we made it past the fire zone we had to drive 100 miles per hr to make it to the airport because we were flying out at 10am that morning, when everyone woke up they couldn't believe that I was driving that fast speed limit was 75 at the time, but I said to them we don't have to worry 5 mins before a highway patrol men past me at a 100 + because he went by me like a bullet.

Al and Leroy fly to Wichita and while we were there it was so windy it almost tore the doors off of the center we bowled at and lots of time the doors would blow open, they had a sand storm there so bad that the interstate was closed because it was impassable, plugged with sand.

We didn't bowl so good as expected but several of us placed high in the side tournaments running in the other houses, Clarence and Darrell bowled the 10 game marathon the day we left for Toledo and drove all night so they could bowl with us the next evening, we bowled at 10:30pm so it gave them a little more time to make it to the team event, but not to much to spare, they made it in about 2 hours to spare we were all worried, but they finally showed up.
