Pool Players

 Hobby Lobby displayed these decorations.

Grandpa had the only store in Elba.  It was a tall two story red brick building built in 1890. Behind the counter in the middle of the store, were two pool tables. It was a quarter a game. When I was 10, I learned to skate going round and round those pool tables.  Even better, I learned to play a mean game of 8 ball.

    Seems like your relatives on your mothers side were a lot more fun. All we had was Sunday afternoon picnics with the relatives from Chicago and everyone calling my name to do something. No pool tables or skates.
