(different, emptier view)

This is the old bowling alley behind Pho Tau Bay in Gretna.
I keep forgetting to ask about what happened to it, whether
it fell silent in the bleak post-oil bust days of the early
1990s or never recovered from the Broussard floods. I went
there for a couple of birthday parties in elementary school.

Skating and Bowling, the two primary not-at-someone's-house
birthday party variants in the 1980s.

I've been staying quiet and burying myself in homework. One
final is 7:30am on Monday, the other is later in the week at
a far more reasonable time. I posted a little bit on the new site
last week when I had content.

Looking forward to the school break to relax and take pictures
of cars while out running errands.

Actually, that was the 24 hour bowling alley that we went to after drinking before the storm. I think the storm happened.

Thanks! Good to know.

It's been there quite a while, my dad and his brothers used to go there in the 70s.
