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,

"Is that a Boy Scout shirt I see hanging there?" I said...

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.

Dear Readers,

 

I took my granddaughter out to Cave Hill Cemetery yesterday. The weather was beautiful and Cave Hill is beautifully historic. It has five lakes and the tombstones date back before the Civil War. The only other place I have been that awakens the senses like Cave Hill are the cemeteries in New Orleans.
