I saw a post by JAM on another forum that asked everyone about their bio's so we would know a little more about each other. I thought this was a neat idea especially for some of us newer guys/gals. I have only been posting for a few months but you people seem real great. I would like to know more about the people I post with on a daily basis. Feel free to reply if you wish or not too.

Hi, Chris,
Good to see your name on the board. Things are okay here. My dad's doing well in Florida, enjoying the warm weather. The annual Christmas Eve celebration at MacD's pool room was good. J.D. and his son Pat served free sandwiches all afternoon and all of the regulars showed up to say hello, play, and eat. The place was packed. I've been playing pretty well lately, considering my world-class lack of talent and skill. Had a pretty good win a couple of nights ago (no money but lots of satisfaction).
Take care of yourself, amigo. My regards to Heide and Spike.

A couple of years my ass!

We've had a running pool rivalry since you started me playing as a teenager, and we've squared off regularly during the holidays for at least the past 15 years, during which time you bought a 9' diamond table and a Jerry Franklin Southwest from the (still living) maker.

Oops, maybe yours was a Clintonesque statement, ie "it depends on your definition of starting back"? I guess you're right, can't really consider yourself to be taking pool seriously until you add two world champions as instructors /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Don't be hustled by this sandbagger, folks, he's a thoroughly dangerous man!

Hey, Crawdaddio - you must be in the South, right? Where else are those Crawdaddies?

Are you a pool "locksmith"? I'm sure you know that means a guy who never loses because he always has a "lock" on the game!
