Wayne gave me a silk tassel from saddam housains place in Iraq. He got that on the MSO tour he told me.

He had several other Gleason things. I remember a solid gold well worn lighter. Wow was that a amazing piece of history. It was endless what Wayne had there.

I’ve know him since 94 and can say without a doubt he among the nicest people I’ve ever met. Not everyone has that opinion. But I do!

No Bushka’s at Wayne’s house anywhere. Sadly.....


And now you know...

Well, if you saw it, I think that's likely the cue. Not a Bushka or Rambow, but still a Huebler would be of some note considering the names involved (Huebler, Gleason, and Newton). Notable enough to be mentioned in the legal dispute anyway.

But I have to wonder if you could know about every possession Wayne Newton had no matter how many times you had been to his house or how well you knew him. Personally, I have cues my closest friends don't know about...nor my wife...LOL!

It leaves at least maybe a little room for mystery.

It makes me wonder if any Huebler aficionados are specifically aware of this cue.
