Here's a good question to send out to the group.
Anyone remember the one-armed man who was a pool hustler at the Minden Pool
Hall (Sin City for us Baptists) in the 1960's.
He'd try to sucker anyone into betting on games at the pool hall and then
wipe out anyone. Don't remember his name, but fortunately I was with some
friends who knew about him the first time I went into the pool hall.
Footnote: It is funny that we (Baptists) were told that the Pool Hall was a
sinful place and we should stay away from it, while at the same time, the
recreation center (old Tabernacle) at First Baptist had a pool table....
Also was anyone else (besides me) dumb enough to (manually) set pins at the
bowling lanes in the FBC Recreation center on Friday Nights???? I think I
got $2.00 per hour and never sweated more in my life. (It was still
better than a job I had a few years ago as a Cable Installer...)
