I know I've posted these somewhere before, but can't remember where.

There's a reference to pool or billiards somewhere in every picture.

Take a look in your free time.

Really enjoyed those pictures, Ed. I notice that every one of them has a billiard or pool sign portrayed; although in many of them, close examination is necessary.;)

I especially enjoyed the photo of the famed Flatiron Bldg. in NYC being built in 1900. And the ones of Canal St. in New Orleans aren't much different from what it looks like today!

Sweating tonk?

You have too much time on your hands.

Hey, that pick of the cat with Sammy L. Jackson's face belongs on this thread.
Is it already here somewhere?

Bunny died, right Ghost? That was hilarious a few years back during the 1p finals between Earl and Shane. During the introductions, Bunny yelled "Strychnine!" after "Strickland" was introduced. Earl glared at him, shook his fist and sighted his cue as if it were a rifle. A few times during the match Bunny yelled down again from the balcony. For a moment, I imagined the warmth in the room as if it was how Johnston City might've been.

I remember Bunny standing up and yelling 'Bullshit' at one of the stories being told with a little embellishment at the Hall of Fame Dinner one year.

He certainly was an outspoken character of the pool world and someone you could count on for a giggle or two, no matter how many times you had heard the joke.

One time Carla Johnson and I were sitting having a chat in Vegas and Bunny came and sat down and was about to join our conversation.
Carla took one look and said "No Bunny, no...." He got up and moved away
real quick like. Don't mess with Carla.
I loved him though. He was one of a kind.
