NEWS FROM THE HILLS

Details

Dear Cousin,

 

Cold wind sighs through the hemlocks with a sad winter sound, and stirs the tenacious oak leaves with a dry, papery rustle. Dark, lowering clouds have threatened all day to spill freezing rain or float snowflakes upon the hills, but have kept their burden so far.

The recent snowstorm that covered us in winter white has disappeared, leaving only a small mound of snow where a regal snowman once reigned. The landscape emerges once more, looking bleak and naked without its winter...

ODE TO BILLY – MY FRIEND

Details

I had not seen Billy for nearly a week, so I went to his house to find him. I peered through his bedroom window only to see his motionless body. When he would not respond to my pounding on his window, I called 911. When the fire department broke into his home we found his lifeless body.

THE PROMISE

 

It was in October of 2000 when this old man came into my auto parts store looking for a replacement part for his very old motor home. Well, the only other one like it would be in the Smithsonian. So, I took a little super-glue and epoxy and fixed his old part, a little Boy Scout handyman work. Then while he was paying for the supplies I used, he looked over my shoulder, pointed, and asked with an old rough voice,

BILLIARDS NEWS & VIEWS

Details 30zip Dave Hancock of Indiana Construction scored 30zip (1st 3 games) at Sidepocket Georgetown for the Playfair Men’s Tuesday Night League.

How many times have you missed a shot because 1) you pulled the trigger in less then (4) seconds or 2) you took 10 seconds or longer then you pulled the trigger. It happens once or twice a game to everybody. Here is an example. You're playing pool and everything is going in. You're pace is great and all of a sudden you come to a real easy cut shot. "Shah-Zam" you get down and shoot this shot in less then four seconds. Right? Guess what you just rattled the ball in the corner pocket. Now...
