    A Little Humor And A Sign From The Mother Ship

    I found out this morning they are moving me to a rehab facility at noon. It is like two blocks from Hard Times. When they came to give me the news, I was halfway through a Magnesium Citrate the surgeon had prescribed to make me poop. I will warn the transport team.

    Another Golf and Three Cushion Story

    We were at the original Hard Times in Costa Mesa and Ronnie Allen talked Charlie The Ape into staking him against Mexican Barney playing golf at 4th & Main in Los Angeles. Now Ronnie was a good golf and snooker player on a tight 5 x 10. When he first came out here from Oklahoma, he hung around...

    A Golf Story

    I played my first game of golf around 1955 in a little room in Monterey Park, just outside Los Angeles, called Steve’s. Steve was an old guy from England and he and his wife ‘Mom’ had this little room with four 5 x 10 snooker tables and two 4 x 8 pool tables. I started hanging in there when I...

I would like to share a few my experiences, of over fifty years, with someone who needs no introduction. Anyone whose ever been in...

    Hardmix at Hard Times

    Ben was in town for business and we agreed to get together again for some cheap, friendly one pocket and three cushion. We ended up breaking even and I will leave it there since I don’t want to knock his three cushion game. He was still in action with one of the locals when I left around 8:30...

    Streaming Table at Bogies Seniors

    It looks to me like the tight pockets and slight roll offs (Mostly the tight pockets) have the players a little gun shy on the stream table. To me, the only players that have not let up as much on their stroke, are the guys playing against each other for the hot seat, Davis & Palmore. Palmore...
