I was at th middle school when I first saw bob. I call him bob even tho the other little grey men make it sound more like bouubghlaater when they talk to him. He had big bowling ball shaped eyes and I know he’s the one for me. Away we went to a special place and I’m not sure why they needs my hair, but bob nos best so I’ll bet it was real important. We went on a ride in the sky and the lights were so pretty. I tried to tell bob about pin center bowling and that we should go there but he said some clicking noise and then I don’t remember much. Our love is entergaylactec and no one can tell me diffrent. He says thru clicking only i can get that we are going to have a mulatto baby only it will be half grey. I’m waiting for him to come get me again and all white coat people will stop shoving these little white cups at me. Maybe we’ll go bowling then and Bob can see what I’m talking about how fun the pin center is and we can bowl and stuff. I know he is little but I’ll bet he’d be real good at bowling cause he’s real strong. He can control things just with his brain and stuff. He made a cow turn inside out just with his brain and then he took half a cat and stuck it to a cow gut and made a machine that can change putogollylops to gatsmuttnism which is his favorite food. Well I’ll hush for now.

Hello….It’s Alice again……
I just got back from…….. Is the room spinning? I’m alright except I seem to be having
trouble remembering……… where did my hair go? They put this thing in my mouth to keep
me from biting my toungue off and then………….. MY HAIR!!! Other than memory, I don’t seem to be having any side effects except that when I leave a room, I have a compulsion to go
through the window. How did I get here? What were we talking about…I can’t remember.
Oh yeah….Dolphins. I like dolphins. They are so……….there it goes again….spinning. What’ up
with that? My hair? What happened? Is it dinner time yet? I’ll let you know how I’m……….
I forgot.

Imagine this….an ancient tradition, with a very rich and colorful history. It’s called Bowling. There are some people who think of bowling as a useless evolutionary throwback…..sorta like the human
appendix or maybe testicles on Ricky Martin (or France). But I disagree. What you have to do is step back and look at the bigger picture. Then you realize whether or not you actually have testicles is largely symbolic, at least in terms of Bowling. And of course, if you don’t have any testicles, you could move to someplace
like France, where it doesn’t matter because no-one has testicles. (Although I’m really not sure if you
can go bowling in France). Or maybe you are like me, and you don’t get to use your testicles very often, but you do maintain ambitions, (unlike the French.) . How did that go again…..”Grow a Pair”.
So, in conclusion, it’s time to grab your testicles and go bowling at the Pin Center in Cleburne (Unless you are French….then you should stick to cooking snails.)

Well, I’m going bowling this weekend at the Pin Center in Cleburne. You see, it’s open house down at the Nervous Hospital. Friend(s) and family of the patients (inmates) get to come in and visit for a few hours. The patients (inmates) give demonstrations on how to weave baskets… to make meat helmets….you know, the ususal stuff. While they are busy, I’m gonna slip out and go to the bowling alley. I would take Alice, (my girlfriend) but she hasn’t been around for a while. The rumor is that she got throwed into Sanitary Confinement. They caught her down at the Middle School sniffing bicycle seats…..something like that. Her nymphomania must have gotten real bad. They say she’s gonna get electroshock therapy. It’s OK.One of the good things about auditory hallucinations is this….Even when I’m alone…we have each other. Besides that, they don’t know who we think we are. The voice named “Sparky” (the Arsonists), told me to take a live chicken with me when I go to the Pin Center. Where am I gonna get a chicken? I’m not gonna do that….That’s CrAzY!!! (I hope nothing bad happens).

So…It’s Saturday. And that means just one thing. Bath day. OK….It means two things. It’s time to have some fun. You should go bowling at the Pin Center in Cleburne. It’ll be fun. In fact, so much fun your Serotonin will pimp slap your Dopamine. You will be all disconnected from reality, sorta like the way orange soda taste like oranges’. You should wear your black, jewel studded bowling shorts. Maybe you could take your wife. Have her wear a Moo Moo dress and show off her freshly shaven armpits. Yep…That’s the ticket. You’ll feel just like the cat that ate the canary in the coal mine. And while you’re bowling, you can fantasize about being a white-trash aristocrat. Be sure to take time and go to the snack bar. I recommend the MILK DUDS. Stay at the bowling alley as long as you can….but before they kick you out, be sure to get some Bowling Gift Cards to give to all your friend(s). It’ll be the gift that keeps on giving….sorta like Chlamydia.

I’ve been trying to think of what the Bowling Alley in Cleburne is like…… If the Pin Center was food, it would “taste like chicken”….unless, of course, you are French. Then it would “taste like snails”.

The other day at the pin center I tried to take one of the balls home because this cousin of my friend was tellin me about the book called “‘steal this book” and about how you can get free stuff and live for free and all. So I thought why not have my own balls. It didn’t work out like I planned and I guess I’ll just have to keep taking the toilet paper instead.

I went down the Pin Center Bowling alley in Cleburne with my friend
Bill….(You might say we are BOSOM buddies). It was really hot outside,
but they had the Air Conditioning on….(It was cold and NIPPLY). It made me
feel kinda CHESTY. We picked out a PAIR of balls out of this great big RACK.
Bill really needs to work on his release….(He kept throwing these BOUNCERS).
I’m not much better. I kept throwing gutter balls. My score was a BUST….
(Boy did I feel like a real BOOB).

I took Alice back to the Pin Center in Cleburne again today. (Alice is my new Girlfriend
down at the Institute.) After we got there, she seemed kind of distracted….looking off
into the distance like I wasn’t there. She was watching the Pin-Setting deck go up and down, and up and down. She was wide-eyed as the shaft of the pins penetrated deeper and deeper into the deck. Her mouth was open as she watched this hard, masculine ball accelerate down the freshly lubed lane, and then pound into the receptive feminine pins, with a climactic bang, leaving her in a state of Bowling ecstacy…..whew…..I need a cigarette. Alice is killing me. She’s gonna put me in the Hospital….(wait a minuite….I am in the Hospital). I’m sleepy now.

Bowlin at Pin Center is the most fun I had in a long time. Now that i’m safe from the Greys with my hat I don’t have no trouble with twitches at night. The twitches would be real bad goin thru that hole in the fence. I’d get all scraped up and the people in white suits at the Institute would no somthin was up. Y’all gotta try this place it’s real fun, I mean it. Alot of people say there’s no good left in the world but I’m tellin you basically Pin Center is proof that God existis. Don’t forget to say hi if you see me there. Im real friendly and my boyfriend don’t mind at all if we hook up. The voices might. Well, I’ll hush for now.

I got me a new girlfriend down at the Institute. Her name is Alice. She’s being treated for Nymphomania. They caught her humping the dog’s leg…somthing like that. I showed her the hole in the fence and we went to the Pin Center Bowling Alley. I think they had Bowling Leagues going on, because there were a lot of people there. They were looking at us funny. We didn’t stay very long, but it was fun anyway. Sometime, I’ve got to show Alice how to properly make a tin-foil hat. If don’t do it right, it won’t cover your reptilian brain stem and block out the Aliens from other Galaxies. With a little practice, you can make one faster than you can say “Bipolar Manic/Depressive Paranoid Schizophrenia”.

When I was in the pin my boyfriend kept tellin me about this magical bowlin ally and boy was he right. I’m tellin you, I didn’t even mind the funny smell from the finger holes in my ball. My boyfriend says the voices are happy when we go bowling. I keep tryin to hear them but I think the implant for my time with the Greys blocks em out. I tried to tell the Greys how bowling worked but they seemed just kept lookin in my ear and nose holes. Guess they got sick of butts. I’m sure glad I didn’t get taken until they were done with that. Anyhoo, if you are looking for a great place to bowl check it. out and look for me so you can say hi. My names Alice and I’m the one with the dolfin tattoo on my leg. I love dolfins.

I got the go back to the Pin Center Bowling Alley again today. I found a big hole in the fence at the Institute, and now I can leave anytime I want. I just have to be back by the time they give out the medication so that I don’t come up missing. That way no one will ever know.
I really like the Bowling Alley. I like the way it sounds, and smells…..and all the colorful lights. The Voices like it too….especially the one named “Sparky”. He keeps telling me to burn things. Isn’t that funny. After all, who among us hasn’t set fire to a public building at one time or another.

Comment Date: 5/29/2011 Name: I’m Back……..and I brought the Voices with me!!
You know….I went back to the bowling alley in Cleburne the other day….(they let me out of the Institute for the afternoon) I was telling every-one there, that they should embrace the Voices…the Voices are your Friends. We should encourage dialog with the Voices. But I was wrong. The Voices don’t like you.

Voices everywhere….telling me where to go….and what to do.

It’s like this…You got two bowling balls, then someone steals one. Now your trying to get a spare with just one hand.

When-ever I go bowling at the bowling alley in Cleburne, I feel like I’m saddling up Mr. Ed for one last gallop to the glue factory.

I love to go to the old bowling alley in Cleburne. I have a lot of fun, but when it’s time to leave, I feel like I’m breaking up with a really ugly girlfriend that’s good in bed.

Good News!!! My girlfriend, Alice, just made parole. I’ve been telling everyone she’s been living in a gated community. Now she gets to be my bowling partner. Can’t wait to take her to the Pin Center. See ya there.

If bowling was like a shell game, the Pin Center in Cleburne would be the cup that the ball was under.

Comment Date: 7/21/2010 Name: Anonymous
If you had a Crystal Ball, and you looked into it to see the future of Bowling, you would see the Pin Center in Cleburne.

Comment Date: 7/16/2010 Name: Anonymous
If you bought a kit called “Build your own bowling alley”, and then you got all vertically motivated and did the tab A into slot B thingy…when you got done, it would look just like the Pin Center in Cleburne.

Comment Date: 7/15/2010 Name: Anonymous
If you took every bowling alley in the whole country, and you put them in a line, say oldest to newest, you would find that the Bowling Alley in Cleburne was one of them. We can say this safely, without any fear of constipation.

I got a promotion at the Screen Door
Factory, so to celebrate I went home and told Martha to grab the kids so we could go bowling. We all got into the Pinto and headed out. The thing about a Pinto is you can get a lot of people in there, but the last two have to go in kinda sideways. They also have to be the first out, or else it don’t work. At the bowling alley, they put up these bumpers in the gutters to make it more fun for the kids. It was all going well until Junior popped one with his buck-knife. That’s when all the trouble started. The workers at the bowling alley replaced the bumper, and thought it was a blowout and we went back to bowling. Then my youngest daughter turned over Martha’s spit cup into the electric hand dryer blower. Sputum went everywhere. We all ducked, but it made a real mess. After they cleaned it up, Martha wasn’t allowed to dip snuff in the bowling alley anymore. I guess they missed a spot, cause I was wearing those Bozo Clown shoes they gave me when I slipped on some sputum and dropped a 16lbs bowling ball on my foot. I ain’t no weenie or anything. I’ve had all kinds of stuff fall on me at the Screen Door Factory, and I ain’t never said anything, but that really hurt because a 16lbs bowling ball just fell on my foot. I sat there for a minute to catch my breath. I kinda forgot about bowling because it just didn’t seem important anymore. All I could think about was going to the store and getting some Malt Liquor to kill the pain. When I went to leave, I couldn’t get the shoe off because it swelled up real big. They were trying to charge me for the shoe, but I just kept telling them I dropped a 16lbs bowling ball on my foot. Martha had to drive the Pinto, but I guess I passed out from the pain. I woke up in the hospital. I broke my foot real good cause I had to have surgery. Now I owe the hospital like $28,000 and I haven’t been able to go to work at the Screen Door Factory for 7 weeks. I was watching Jerry Springer when I seen this commercial for a “tough smart lawyer.” He said I could get every dime I had coming. I think he called himself the “Texas Hammer.” I got an appointment tomorrow if I can get Martha to drive me in the Pinto.

If you looked up “Bowling Alley” in the encyclopedia, there should be a picture of the Pin Center in Cleburne.

Comment Date: 7/4/2010 Name: Anonymous
If you made a list called “Bowling Alleys I have to go to”, the Pin Center in Cleburne should be very high on your list.

I was drinkin a six pack the other night and I got to thinkin’…If bowling alleys were adult beverages, and your average bowling alley was like Bud Light,….then the Cleburne Bowling Alley would be like wood alcohol.

The decline of bowling is UnPatriotic, it is UnAmerican, it is UnTexan… is… is…..French.

I just got back from the Bowling Alley in Cleburne, and I thought I would write about the trip to keep everyone ABREAST of what’s happening. I went there with my friend John TITTSWORTH. We are like BOSUM buddies. When it comes to bowling, we make a wonderful PAIR. Any-way, it was 100 degrees outside, but inside they had the AC on high and it was cold and NIPPILY. I picked out a pink ball out of this huge RACK. Bill got one that was UDDERLY blue. I kept getting gutter balls, so my score was a BUST. Boy, did I feel like a real BOOB.

You know…Bowling used to be the number one participation sport in the US, but it’s been in decline for years. Kids today just don’t go bowling very often and a lot of bowling alleys have had to close. Most kids today would rather play video games at home but it’s not that way in Cleburne. The Pin Center is rockin’ on. I like to think of it this way…The Bowling Alley in Cleburne is like finding a virgin, on a life-raft from a sinking hooker barge.

The voices told me to go bowling again or they were going to take the letter “C” out of the English Alphabet. It may be that the letter “K” can replace “C” without any trouble, but you never know about these things. (This is why I save my urine). They always get what they want or else something bad will happen. Anyway, I went to the bowling alley by myself, and we had a really good time. I scored 110 on my second game. I could have done better, except I had to use my left arm. I’ve had a twitch in my right arm since I got hit by lightning. Take my advise. Never wear your tin foil hat outside during a thunderstorm. Someday I want to join the Casino League like they told me about at the Institute. I got to go take my medicine again. See ya!

At the Cleburne Bowling Alley, they got this new fangled scoring thingy. After you throw your ball, this computer adds up all the pins that you knocked down and then cyphers up your score. You ain’t never seen nothing like it. I think it may be from the future. (A future, where an Intergalactic Geneva Convention establishes the rules of Space War…sorta like fornicating for chastity. And now all the bad guys, who come from the evil parallel dimension wearing gotees, can only use red lasers, and all the good guys use only blue lasers while they battle all forms of evil…both the French, and the Non-French.
Hey…It could happen.

Sometimes I go to the Bowling Alley in Cleburne and play pool. I was out there the other night when something strange happened. For one night, I became like a Black Belt in pool hustling. I can’t believe it…I won like $1200. Now I’ve got the biggest TV in the Trailer Park. (When I was driving home with my new TV, I realized…This is why I drive an El Camino.)

I have traveled all over the world, and I have bowled in a hundred different bowling alleys. I have to say that Pin Center in Cleburne is unique. This place is the “Hope Diamond” of bowling alleys.

Cleburne bowling alley rocks. It’s just like being really lonely, while you are walking down the streets of Bangkok looking for a woman, with a Twenty dollar bill stapled to your forehead. I’d go every day if I could.

I’ve taken up bowling as my new hobby. (I used to collect antique glass telegraph pole insulators.) It turns out that I’ve had a lot of spare time since my girlfriend got thrown into solitary, especially on visitation days. I’ll be at the bowling alley on Monday, so come on down and have some fun.

I like to go to the arcade inside the bowling alley in Cleburne and play video games. The last time I was there, I broke my glasses. Now, I’ve got them held together with a band-aid. It’s more fun than that time Bill Gates scored ATTACK 7, CHARISMA 5 on Dungeons and Dragons. In fact, it may be more fun than sex…with a woman…at least that’s what they tell me.

After Church last Sunday, my family met at the bowling alley in Cleburne. To memorialize the occasion, I’ve composed a “bowling haiku”. Enjoy, you nerd-net voyeurs, you.
Bowling in Cleburne
Had a lot of fun
I’m also working on a short one act play called “Bowling Monologue”. It’s about the development of bowling and the bowling industry and how it affected modern contemporary western civilization.
I’ll submit it as soon as it is finished.

I love to go bowling. They let me drink beer and smoke. I can’t do this down at the fire-work stand where I work. Besides that, my parole officer says nicotine and alcohol steady my nerves.

You know. When-ever you go bowling at the Pin Center, you come away with a complete bowling experience. I like to think of it this way. Imagine playing Pac-Man without the dots. Know what I mean. Or maybe it could be like a donut hole without the donut. It’s kinda like that sometimes. Know what I mean. It’s Yin and Yang. Light on one side, dark on the other, and holding the entire universe together. Like ‘duct tape’. Or maybe “duck tape” with some little ducks on it.
Or maybe it could be like a ‘lame duck’, possibly because of a freak land mine accident. How about this…Wax on…Wax off. Eat all you can…sell the rest. Lift and separate. Lather, rinse, repeat. At least that’s what I hear. It would be kinda like having all your cake in one basket and eating it too. Or possibly like biting
the hand that feeds the gift horse in the mouth. Yeah….that’s the ticket. And then you file all this away in the Shirley McClain/Tom Cruise section of your brain and then start twitching around like Michael J. Fox on Crystal Meth. If you stop and think about it….What else can you say?

I just love the bowling alley. My favorite part is the all-you-can-eat buffet. I recommend the lobster…all for about ten bucks.

I went bowling over the holidays and had a great time …until I got one of my meta-carples hung in a guest ball and then I throwed out one of my vertibles. It was really disturbing…kinda like a three finger prostate exam.

Comment Date: 11/4/2009 Name: Sonny Russell, Owner
Its always disappointing when 2 or 3 people who are personal friends of the former owners to publish false information about our business. We have a clean well-lit, modern bowling center. We try to do what pleases the majority of our customers. I will personally give anyone who comes into our center and finds it dirty, smokey, etce a brand new crisp $100 bill. We have had hundreds of calls and people coming in and telling us how thrilled they are that we are back to serve their bowling and entertainment needs. Thank you! Sonny Russell, Owner

i dont who you concider white trash but if thats what you think of us then i`m proud of it at least now you can hae fun while bowling and not worry about getting griped out for having fun so get off your high horse and come have some fun

Comment Date: 9/23/2009 Name: A Very Unhappy Bowler!
Forget about bowling at Pin Center Lanes! The OLD owners have taken it over, and turned it back into a filthy white trash bowling alley! Smoking & drinking are being allowed again, and the place is back to being a dive! Well done Sonny & Sandra Russell … screw the nice families of Johnson County by catering to the white trash! BRAVO!

Well…I was out walking my dog, “Tripod”, when the voices said to go bowling and it would impress Jodi Foster. So….I adjusted my tin-foil hat and went inside…. What were we talking about…. You know…I think I forgot to take my medicine. Gotta go…

Comment Date: 11/12/2008 Name: A Very Happy Bowler
What a breath of fresh air! Because all of the bowling centers close to us allow smoking & drinking, we had never taken our young daughter bowling. Thank goodness there is finally a family-oriented center for us to bowl! Every time we have gone, we have had an awesome time … and it looked like everyone else around us was enjoying themselves as well. The center has always been clean, and it looks like the owners have really done a lot of improvements. If you just really like to bowl without having to put up with nasty cigarette smoke, rowdy drunks, etc…this is the place to go!

This place s*cks. I went there saturday night. THEY S*CK. I rather go to somewhere you can atleast have a nice cold one. What a waste of a buisness. someone else needs to take over. The non-smoking I can understand because theres kids there but come one no beer? What a joke for a place. I would not tell anyone of this place to anyone

My family and I are the new owners of Pin Center Lanes, we have spent alot of time and money fixing the ailing center up, yes we are non smoking and do not allow alcohol, we are a family place where you can come and enjoy yourselves. We offer great prices compared to any center within 100 miles.

I went there the employees or owners had a bad attiude. I also used to enjoy the snack bar but now only have limited items that s*cks. I also can’t belive that u cant drink or smoke what I lose for business

I went there for the first time the other night. I should have known it was not going to be good, since it was Saturday night and only 2 lanes were occupied in the whole building. The staff had a surly attitude and were not friendly. My whole family met there as it was the most central point from all our homes. We will drive farther next time. The lanes were not oiled, I’m not sure they were even waxed. The pin display is animated and accurate, but the ‘amusing’ comments are not funny – they are mean and discouraging – instead of “oh you missed, better luck next time” they said very negative things like “Don’t quit your day job” or “Are you even looking?” and other comments that would not make me want to come back. Maybe that’s why there were no other bowlers LOL. The shoes were very comfortable, though. 🙂
