OnCue 8-28-2006

Still fried from the marathon drive home yesterday,
I wanted to get some good competiton so I hit On Cue in La Mesa
and it seemed there were a lot of familiar faces there.
I only won one match.
Here's how it ended up:

Ray Lorenzo
Dave Sparks (won my first match)
Dave Nakano
Chris Rose
Sam Manolo
Jesse Garcia
Steve Long (won my 3rd match)

I'm going to have to bear down!

Home, Sweet Home

Back in Del Mar after 54 days and 5,000+ miles
"on the road" shooting pool.
Fast Mikie's Epic Road Trip has come to an end.

I think I know how Clark (of Lewis & Clark expedition) felt
when he wrote in his diary after 4000+ miles of journey:
"Ocean in view. Oh, the joy!"

It is "indescribably delicious" to be in my own space again.
My own bed, my shower, my towels, my hammock, my ocean,
my food, my pool table, my family and friends.

Incredibly, it now feels like I never left,
but I know from past experiences like this,
that the benefits realized are a delayed reaction.

I'm looking forward to seeing what I have learned!
