9-ball winner – at last!


Thursday and Friday nights are pretty busy for me, as I am responsible for coordinating and managing the ladies 8-ball tournament Thursday night and the open 9-ball tournament Friday nights. Thursday nights are longer because the women arrive later and the games tend to take longer. Friday is faster and starts earlier.

On Fridays, I also get to participate, although I usually bow out early, like last week when my opponent made the 9 ball on the break (I really don’t like 9-ball much!). This week, the breaks went my way, as I managed to best 3-time winner Frank in the final match. There were 13 players (both male and female) and I had to win four games. My prize – a round-trip Batam to Singapore ferry ticket.

Lifetime journalist, author, magazine editor and publisher, now semi-retired and traveling the world. My plan, after living in Costa Rica for 14 months, was to visit a new country in southern Europe every three months to experience the culture and the challenge of adapting to a new environment, while on a fixed income. That plan was sidetracked when I was offered a job in Indonesia, providing an opportunity to explore Asia. Indonesia lasted for a 4 wonderful years but I have now moved on to Hua Hin, Thailand.
