Chris Barbee- The Bowling Ball Man  photo by Fred Scruton

So what will YOU do when you retire? It didn't take Chris long to find a hobby.

It started when he began to wonder what he was going to do with a few old bowling balls his wife had used as gazing balls in her rose bed. Perhaps a fence could be made with them.....and then it grew. By leaps and bounds. Even Chris is astonished by how fast his project took off.

He is now known in the area simply as "The Bowling Ball Man."
