The Bowling Ball House

By Olivia W.

Most people use bowling balls to go bowling, but not at this house.

Kiaralinda and Todd (the Whimzey Twins) live in 1206 Third Street North, Safety Harbor FL. They call it the Bowling Ball House because of the seven hundred through eight hundred painted bowling balls around their house. 200 of them are stacked to form many bowling ball pyramids. In the bathroom there are ten hundreds of McDonald's Happy Meal toys glued on the ceiling. In the kitchen there are trolls hanging on the ceiling from bungee cords. You can pull them down and when you let go they fly back up. In the living room there are bugs hanging down. Behind the bugs there are old fashion lunch boxes. In the Bowling Ball Art Museum there are painted bowling balls. One of them (that is orange) has traveled all around the world. They love it when people go walk around their yard.

You should go visit!

Olivia, Good work on the bowling ball house story! I had no idea there were at least 800 bowling balls there -- good sleuthing. I am going to walk by there again soon.

Good job Olivia. There have been many stories about this wonderful house, and yours was engaging and fresh!
