True story. I had occasion to play some One Pocket in Capital Heights, Md last week. On the table next to me, two of the regulars where talking about this guy TomTom, and how great he played. I didn't chime in but was pleased to note that your good reputation extends off the site and into any pool hall I may walk into.

Happy Birthday, Tom!

Mitch
Even though he moved away some years back, if you play one pocket anywhere in the DC area and Southern MD for any length of time, you're certain to hear "TomTom" at some point, and always with respect! I knew him by reputation long before I had the pleasure of meeting Tom.

Happy Birthday!

Cory

P.S. Mitch--next time you're that close to DC, let me know and we just might be able to shoot some.

"Good Reputation"...Are you sure they were talking about me? Just kidding, There isn't but one Tom Tom. I should have bought that domain name way back when, who would want to be called Garmin anyway?

Happy Birthday Tom, you have been not only a great teacher since you joined us but also one who has taught us to have patience with one another. Thanks for all you do and can't wait for your book.

Have a great day.

Dr. Bill, I'm still in the learning stage in this patience game. I'm sure I will always be in need of improving upon my grasp that elusive trait. Bill, I have learned a great deal about One Pocket and communicating civilly with others from your posts. Thanks.

To my dear friend, Tom, wishing you today and every day forward to be filled with joy and happiness.

Thanks to you, I graduated from the bar tables at Hank's to the big boxes of Randolph Hills. And then there was Geese. :D

I remember you used to like to be incognito and fly under the radar, so I always blacked out your face in the photos if I posted them on pool forums, so nobody could see what you looked like. This one was taken in my basement that day we had the charity poker game for Colin, who got the nudge from the judge to take a forced vacation. :eek:

I hope you do something fun today, Tom. I miss you, love you, and wish you all the very best that life has to offer. :)

I made you a virtual chocolate birthday cake. No calories, not that you ever had to worry about calories. ;)
Hi Jennie, Thanks so much for all the kind words, the memories, and the love. Oh yes, let me not forget the chocolate cake. Yum.

I'm obviously not longer under the radar. It seems I have a great number of friends and I appreciate every one of them. So many of these friends are right here on the great site. Thanks to all of you!

Happy Birthday Tom, hope we get to meet again somewhere down the road.
Yes John, I would very much like to sit down to a few libations and shoot the shit. I enjoyed the conversation we had but it was way too short.

Thanks,

Tom

Happy birthday Tom.
Don't spend all my money in one place:D
Oops, Too late! I guess you'll just have to make another trip this way so I can reload!

Thanks Jim, enjoy the new job and fly high. That is in the sky not the head.

Here we go again with all this respect! See Dad, you were wrong! :D

Too all the others who were so kind as to acknowledge me birthday today I offer great thanks. To Larry who has become a very good friend. You live two hours away but the old saying of "to a friends house the road is never long" is true enough in your case.

Eddie, we've known each other a long time and I am privileged to have you as a friend.

Frank (Crazysnake) well the future is open and thanks for the well wishes.

Doc, You are the man. You have it all going. A somewhat short career in rock music but, oh what a career. You have my upmost admiration.

Dustin, Thanks and I hope to run into you before I'm too old to beat you silly at One Pocket.

Billie, Do you miss flying those bumblebees? Thanks buddy next time I see you we have to work the bartenders to death.

Rod, Thanks for being a rock to this organization. Always level headed and on point.

Lou, Thank you for the well wishes and it looks like I will have to light a fire under the butt of my editor so I can get it to the printers. I was hoping to have it ready for the new year but now we are all playing the waiting game. If I do say so myself, and I do, It is well "Wirth" waiting for. :)

Frank, You are one of my greatest supporters, Thanks for keeping the flame.

Jimmy B. You don't seem to post much but when you do you have a lot to say, Thanks.

And to anyone who I have missed please don't feel bad about it, blame on the fact that I'm a whole year older.

Thanks to all and Merry Christmas, Happy Hanuka, and a very heart felt wish for the best New Year ever!

Dear Tom-

Happy Birthday ! Hope you have/had a great day. Have always enjoyed our matches and one pocket discussions. The next event will be at your place since you came to Naples last time. I will call in next few days to set up meet after New Years. Thanks for all you do for the game.

Happy Birthday Tom. 🎂

You add a lot to the forum. It's refreshing to see someone who can play that doesn't get involved in personalities and extraneous things that detract from the purpose of the site.

Thanks my friend,
My being a part of this forum is an absolute pleasure. Sometimes it requires biting my tongue, but that is rarely the case. It is all about One Pocket for me. Aren't we all here for the same reason?

Thanks Tony, It's Okay that you've helped blow my cover. I have come to enjoy the teaching end of the game far more these days. My goal is to instill a joy for this wonderful game so it will grow in popularity and last for centuries.

Be well, and enjoy the holidays.

Keone, Thank you for chiming in with your well wishes too. Your fascinating inside stories of Hollywood leaves me with great anticipation for future tinsel town tales. And your common sense remarks on civility lead me to believe you to be on the road to Guru status. :)

I thank you separately for that.

Tom
