once...

I was once in a pool hall in Georgia... not sure where
maybe Dublin
maybe something close to Macon
either way

there was this pool hall
we shot pool there and drank a few beers
if I recall it was 35 cents a game
an old guy sat on a stool in the middle of the room
he surveyed the whole situation

when the last ball dropped he was on his feet
fetting balls
setting up the rack
taking 35 cents off the table

it was really something

the guy in the booth said that Minnasota Fats Played there
or something like that
watching The Hustler Right now
