You do what?
I'm a Cuemaker, how the heck did that happen you ask , well......it's a long story.
I was born, raised and still live in Florida. I was a C student in most classes, in any
shop class I did better. I loaded trucks, lived at home and made it through the local
college. I got a degree in Business/Accounting. Along the way I borrowed a home
work assignment from a girl in class, the honey moon was a cheap cruise to Mexico.
30 years later she packs and ships your cues, we have a daughter that helps. During
college I became a 3-5 hour a day, 365 day a year, pool player. I'm sure I bought
the local pool hall (Val's) one hour at a time.
Accounting, really? Yeah...., I needed an elective and they talked about money in
there. I didn't have much money but I sure wanted some. Jobs, well, finally I found
a job as an Assistant Internal Auditor at Florida National Bank. Every bank I ever
worked at is gone now.... Assistant Auditor, Auditor, VP, CFO, 5 banks in 8 years,
every one sold or merged out from under me. I started trying to make cues between
bank numbers 4 and 5, I started with this lathe.
