Last word: The ‘female bowler’ is an awesome creature. Her fanaticism transcends even that of the bridge player.
The ‘disease’ however is said to be terminal. If she could, she would play six days a week.
Don’t expect dinner on bowling days either - take-away is the only hope.
When she comes home it will take an hour to tell of the brilliance of her plays.
But don’t think it has all just begun.
Anne Boleyn was once a pretty good bowler. That’s until they removed her head!
