Sorry to say I've been a contributor to the deadness around here.
We settled back in Houston after the camping trip and found a cool place on 5 acres in Conroe a bit north of Houston that we moved into a couple months ago. House will be great, but right now it is nothing but projects and deferred maintenance. So between that, work, and the kids, my time for anything pool related has dwindled.
Property has a good sized shop that i'm dying to portion off part of and build out a little mancave with a table, but i'm thinking that's far down the line.
Hopefully I can find a bit of time to get out to bogies this weekend to catch some of the action. We'll see.
Doing alright but not hitting balls.How's everyone doing? Hittn balls much?
begging the obvious question, Billy: are you right handed or left?wife gets angry with me every time she sees me with a tool in my hand.
I can watch a player shoot for innings, but when I finally realize he's left-handed it looks awkward to me from then on.Right handed
Aw shucks dustin thanks for such kind wordsLarry. My favorite MD. Hope all that shit weather went north of you and having a good time at seniors.
Larry is great at anything he puts his mind to. Unmatched IQ. Feel lucky he put all that into an honorable profession over being a scuff - which he manages to do pretty sporty nonetheless. Best tennis player on the site.
And my friend.
Thanks!Whitey is trying his best. He created a new game of banks posted in the bank/carom section. I told him I would try to video me trying it out, so if you want a good laugh, check it out.

while moving to (north) seattle in 2018, I was so excited, because I knew I was going to be a mile away from the best pool hall in town, and a haven for 1hole. I'd only taken pool seriously a few years prior and knew less than zilch about one pocket (these days I'll fess up to a flat zilch), but was enchanted by the scene, having gotten to witness players like louie, platis, ronn and many others, do their thing. I had only just been introduced to the game, and couldn't wait to be a fixture on the rail, soaking up whatever action I could. by the time I'd finished moving into the new place, the golden fleece had closed. cold.
(note: the 'fleece has since relocated to everett, wa- about a half hour north, and is still a fine pool establishment)
I say all this to say that maybe I would be more active here, were my pool-playing situation different, but I don't know. I have a lot to be thankful for, but really miss mixing it up in various bars and 'halls. I read, watch vids, ponder and play, but feel a bit like "the omega man" these days. I do know that this place is such a trove/testament to the great game, and it's you all that make it go. much appreciated. and I do want to contribute, I just don't know anything ^_^ I've started torturing myself by filming and watching my sessions, maybe one of these days I'll film some 1p and give y'all something to laugh at. until whenever, I feel fortunate to be a member of such a fine community. best of rolls to you all (even if/when we play).
Twas a sad October day indeed
We chatted some before and I hope one day we can get together, if you're willing to take a boat out to Vashon next spring/summer I'd be happy to have you over and we can fire up the streaming gear to go back and study our own shortcomings afterwards.
appreciate the shout and invite, marc..sounds good! (even the discussing shortcomings part ^_^)
I think that there needs to be a match at your house between two players like myself and someone, not Mitch the Beast. I dont want the whole forum to realized how badly my game has fallen off. Im thinking Warren, someone from Rosemont Mn? We do like Ghost and Hendy did a few years ago. Race to ……. For a three days period, not including any foot ball nights. Who has some cash to put up for some axtune? $3000 didn’t go far when John and I went to Chicago. After room, food, airlines, tips and ice cream, I think we lost $40 ea. But then again I dont have $300 right now. If I save my SS checks real tight and give up Red Bull, I might be able to come up with some cash. I know I am going out on a limb to play either one. I played Warren almost every time we went to Houston except for the time I was poisoned by another member who shall go unnamed. I am a few games ahead, 0-0. I think Milton and I played once in Mitch’s back yard MOT. He won the tie breaker. 3-2.you da man vap. backbone of onepocket.org.
