Ten-plus years ago this place was a bowling alley and a low-end department store. They just added a Tiffany. So, maybe folks can look forward to a renewed New Richmond.

The north country is boring if that's their level of entertainment available. If you bowl 300 games who even knows about it? Maybe fishing is the outdoor sport they do most of socially. Can these folks keep expensive boats that are not hurt by the ice in the frozen months?

That's funny:

As I prepare to return to rehearsals and performances, I decided to get into shape again and started thinking about activities to do so. But what activities? What did I used to do, before I was performing and/or married? Then it hit me:

The foster homes used to take us Bowling!

There is a new bowling alley about a 1/2 mile from the one shown in the picture. More bigger, much nicer.

I think they have cable & internet too TG.

Yah [as I surf through 1468 channels of junk] what he said.

I think I'll head out to the country tomorrow.

Not a very POTUS-friendly sign if you think about it.

traditionalguy said...

El Pollo...What about social entertainments...like square dances on Saturday night or Rodeo? The only thing I know about that part of the country is from John Sandford novels.

There a lot of places like this where winter is just too miserable and too long to do much outdoors. Add to that a working class environment where the culture tends to be middle brow and, yes, you're going to see a lot of places like this.

I really don't know. AllenS seems to have a decent virtual social life from there right here.

Just one word Benjamin: snowmobiles*

Or *snowmachines as our future POTUS refers to them.

wv = turin (as in Grand Turin)

Question for those of the liberal persuasion:

Why are snow machines so looked down upon?

You mean with a tuxedo store right next to the bowling alley? What're you callin' middle brow?

Holy smoke AllenS -

They're comin' your way. Wipe off those tractors. Pick up that dog poop. You're gettin' company.

Donald Douglas said...

Do they play Three Dog Night on the sound system?

More proof that neither Althouse nor Meade were invited to the Clinton wedding.

AllenS said...

Evidently, they drove right on by. Had they stopped, The Althouse Woman could have taken pictures of the Great Wall of AllenS. It's just like the Great Wall of China, except smaller.

Have you checked it recently? I noticed a can of spray paint on the table in an earlier photo.

AllenS said...

Nobody paints anything on my wall. Nobody.

Does it have a Thai restaurant?

(Nearly every bowling alley in my area has a Thai restaurant in it...)

ricpic said...

Hey Fooborista, I was just in Thermopolis, Wyoming, of all places and sure enough there's a bowling alley with a Thai restaurant!...and no, I didn't partake.

The W appears to have been knocked out by a ball sent down the middle, leaving a difficult rabbit ears set up for the spare.
