I am still intouch with many pool players from the past in Southern California. Many have moved away. Some have passed away. A few have hung up the game altogether.
As you may know, Buddy was a powerhouse player back in the day. I always enjoyed watching him. I hope he's doingg well. You might ask him if he remembers a guy named Ernie who played out of the old pool room in Elsinor. I now live in Ventura but get around Southern California a lot on bsiness and pleasure.
