Excerpt from Nineteen Seventy Something
I parked the Road Runner in the darkness on the far side of Cowboy Bob's Tavern just across the Oklahoma state line and nervously made my way toward the door. My hand paused as it found the doorknob, then taking a big breath, I stepped inside for the first time ever. The smoky bar was filled with cowboys and rednecks and a few scraggly looking women. My eyes surveyed the room anxiously then settled on the pool table sitting squarely in the center of the room. I wandered up and watched two cowboys playing eight ball and after a few minutes, I laid a quarter on the side of the table.
