Just when we try to put some sort of limits on ability, we get this story:
81 Year Old Lampasas Man With 209 Bowling Average by Mike Holland
Lampasas resident Albert Waits, 81, bowls in the Wednesday night league at Lampasas’ Putters & Gutters Bowling Alley. Now this might not be newsworthy if it wasn't for the fact that Albert carries a 209 average in the Wednesday Storms League.
Last night Albert was a little off his game, with a 196, a 218, and finished with a low score of 178 for a series of 592... pretty darn impressive. He said that he didn't start bowling until he was 56.
Mr. Waits was born in Bertram and raised in Austin. He worked as a home remodeler for over 40 years before retiring. Now he says he’s thinking about going back to work because his wife of many years, Susan, is working him harder now than before he retired. They’ve lived in Lampasas for 4 months and you can always find Albert Waits on Wednesday night at the bowling alley.
