Given that he experienced no notion how lengthy the balls experienced been there, or how they acquired there, Olson identified as the producer, Brunswick Bowling Merchandise, to ensure that none of the materials employed to make the balls experienced turned poisonous.
Olson explained Brunswick verified they were being clean and had him just take pictures. Some balls experienced serial figures and engravings that dated back to the 1950’s, the very same time body in which Olson’s household was designed. On the other hand, it is really unclear when they were put less than the home.
All in all, Olson pulled out 158 bowling balls from less than his residence — and he reported it may well just be the starting.
“Surrounding the cement staircase is a patio created of paver blocks, and a couple of were unlevel so I took them out… and I ran into a handful of far more balls,” he stated. “I am about 75% sure that there are just as a lot of balls in the floor as there are out, probably even much more.”
As considerably as what he is carrying out with them, it is a bit of a blended bag. He is provided some of them absent, but he and his wife system to be innovative with the rest — these types of as employing them as attractive pavers in their yard.
