Thanks Blah, I'll certainly look into that if I can't put together a hard cover book. It's nice to know there are options.

Run over to Murfreesboro, AR and pick up some FREE diamonds, from the volcanic diamond mine there, for inlays in your next cue.

If your journey takes you through Denver, check out Hank's at West 38th Avenue and Sheridan Blvd. It was formerly Paradise (that's what the sign still says) and was once the Family Fun Center, a stop for many road players who trooped through in the golden era.

The other notable room these days is Felt (formerly Table Steaks) in the southern 'burbs.

Not only the great rooms, but I'm finding the hidden old gems.

I walk into any POOL ROOM (not bar) and feel completely at ease...and let the BS start flying.

Thanks for your wishes.

McDonalds in Mena, AR - 11-04-2011, 05:31 AM

Spent the night here on my my to Texarkana, then to Shreveport, New Iberia, Houma and New Orleans.

I've never been to Maine in the fall but...it can't have anything on the drive between Fayetteville and Ft. Smith on highway 71. WOW.

Todays picture is from Sioux City, IA. Bank Shot Billiards. Sorry that it is one of their stock picts. I forgot to get an outside picture, must have gotten up too early that day. It hasn't happened since. I now have a pre-shot routine.

Double Vision - 11-04-2011, 05:39 AM

Help me in wishing my good friend "Chicago Tom" Sheely (Roll Out) a speedy recovery from eye surgery to correct a double vision problem. That has to be a pool players worst nightmare (especially if they don't drink).

I also would like to thank Tom personally because without his help, input and general BS, this project would not have happened.

Lol I was there with my wife and kids in June of 2010! Very hot and we didn't find any diamonds but there were 4 found that day. FYI Murfressboro is in a dry county. Imagine my surprise when we got there and i asked one of the locals where a bar or pool room is at, I had to drive 45 min to a town called Pearl (?) to get a cold beer!

Beautiful area though.

Today's room is located in Sioux City, IA. Back in the '80's the Corner Pocket was one hot spot to play.
