As a person who has left instructions to have my ashes scattered in a variety of places where such act is a misdemeanor, I think this option is a lot of fun.

Will his 300 game count? Is it legal for two players to play the same ball?

Father-Son relationships can be problematic. Reminds me of the grandson who took his aging granddad bowling for the first time. Gramps' first ball hits the gutter for about ten feet jumps out and makes a strike in the next lane. Really difficult to score.

Now why didn't they think of that?

AmoebaStampede: Great clip from a great film. Woody Allen had a similar scene somewhere, though bowling wasn't the backdrop of the film.

Thanks for sparking the memories.

My Dad would've LOVED it!

Thanks, Jim. Glad to bring back nice memories. Now if only I knew which movie you were referring to...

@Jim ...Oh, wait, you mean Alvy Singer sneezing cocaine all over the place? Oh. Yeah, I can see why someone Wood laugh their ash off.

@AmoebaStampede: Yes, that's the one.
