Does anyone have a bowling ball I can borrow? It need not be in good shape, as I won’t use it for bowling…I just need to practice lifting a heavy spherical object enough that I can do it easily.  I’m happy to pay a stipend for it, or if your trying to get rid of one forever I’ll make sure it has a good home.  Thanks…and yes I’ll tell you more about how I’m using it if you care!

If you open the mudroom door to my place and look to the left behind the door, you will see a rake and some other implements leaning on some shelving. On the left side of the top shelf is a pink dishpan. In the pink dishpan is a Brunswick bowling ball, which you are welcome to borrow.  Could you just please close the door tight after you, email me to let me know you’ve taken it, and also email me to let me know when you’ve returned it?

    The use of a borrowed bowling ball is not bad, but it will always be better to have your own, especially since you have become accustomed to the weight and the way to grab it.
