Our excitement of previous weeks has culminated in disappointment. The scheduled day for our delivery was cloudy and rainy. Just as the time was drawing near for the Connelly truck to pull into our driveway, the phone rang. They would not be delivering today because of the rain. They did not want to take any chance of getting the table wet...even while loading or unloading it from the truck. Our new delivery date is Saturday, two days hence. More waiting.
To make ourselves feel better on Thursday, we drove to the only billiard supply store in the area: On Cue. We had never been to this store before. We didn't even know it existed until a month or so ago. Visiting this store was very helpful for our bummed out mood. We came out of there with a clock for the pool room (each number on the clock is a billiard ball!), some deadly-looking thing with needles in it that you use to rough up your tip, and an order for a three-lamp pool table light! We left On Cue with less money in the checking account, but our hearts were happier.
