Mondays and Fridays
Having a ball on Friday night ...

For any actual bocce enthusiasts out there, yes I know I've over-simplified the rules a bit.  I'm trying to keep the story moving, so I apologize for any inaccuracies.

Sorry this is a day late ... I'm packing up my car, and hitting the road tomorrow for Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  Hopefully this job will work out well (it's giving me headaches just getting there).

Who goes out and plays bocce in the evening?  Well, if you're north of Detroit, try this place ... we went there on a company outing when I was working in Auburn Hills.  Like Summer said, it's kinda fun!

Life continues to be moderately crazy.

Timothy Whitcomb (timothywhitcomb) says: thank you for posting the rules of play!  Even if they are shortened.  It helps a great deal because i had forgoten. And i like the refernce to Brester Rockett, Space Guy!
Timothy Whitcomb (timothywhitcomb) says: Question? Can you knock an opponanants boll further away from the pallino?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Yes, you can knock the other side's balls away, or knock the pallino to a different spot, or try to place your shots so they block your opponent.  Good players can use a fair amout of strategy placing their shots.
Christopher Bacon (tricksterson) says:

What happens if a player's ball hits the pallino?  Especially if doing so moves it?  Forgive my total ignorance.

A comment and a question on Carrie.  Comment:  Thank you for creating a character that's a devout Christian and not a loony and/or bigot.  I'm not a Christian myself but even I get tired of the stereotype.

Question:  You show Carrie's hair holding the hammer.  Is this just a special effect or is it "alive" ala Medusa of the Inhumans?  If so does this mean she's a super as well?

Timothy Whitcomb (timothywhitcomb) says:

Hummm! this sound better and better!

I will have to look into this..

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Sorry for delays in responding ... I just moved to a new job and it took a few days to get my internet connection up and running.

Bocce rules:  You can use your ball to hit the pallino, knock it away from your opponents, knock it closer to your own balls ... it's all legal.

Yes, Carrie is Christian.  She's more a believer in actions than words.  As for her hair, it has some mobility of its own ... I'll go into more detail as the story progresses.  If the girls ever have a sleepover, watch out for a flood of exposition.

Nyerguds (nyerguds) says:

Ohh, petanque. Uma's French heritage sure isn't showing if she never heard of that.
