Hiya Rick,

That title sure brought back some memories. When I was about 16-17, I worked in a pool hall / motel / cafe. It was all combined, and owned by a man, his wife, and their daughter, who was my age…beautiful girl, and needless to say I was in love with her….!!!! I ran the pool hall part after school and on weekends. Snooker was the main game, and I learned to play pretty good. Back then you played and paid by the minute. I had a timeclock. When someone wanted to play, I took a timecard, and punched them in, and their playing time began. Afterwards when they finished, I punched them out agan. Ever how many minutes they played is what they owed… cost a penny a minute to play. And when noone was playing, I could play all I wanted to….free. I played the snooker tables a lot, and got really good at it. If someone came in, wanted to play, and needed a partner, I played. We had regular pool tables to play rotation, eight ball, and nine ball….but snooker was the main game…..Man you sure brought back some old memories…And by the way….I didn’t get the gal… She went off to boarding school and I never saw her again…..So….I guess I got snookered.
