Dennis gave me a pool cue of my very own, and it really does make a difference in how well I can shoot, though I am still a novice. This is the Cue and Cushion pool hall. No smoking, no drinking, just pool and a great jukebox which plays, according to the patron, everything from rhythm and blues to hard rock to country. After watching awhile it’s pretty easy to guess which genre a given patron will play. I put in my earplugs when certain teenagers approach the box. I enjoy it but am overdue for a trip to the arboretum to see what nature’s up to. Hopefully this weekend.
