Pool Shark

@TR4- what happened to your post a couple of weeks ago about the name of a pool shark who visited Atkinsons off and on? I was looking forward to the answer.

I don't know the pool shark you guys are talking about, but I do have a recollection of a pair of brother-sister pool sharks dating back between 1972 and 1976. During that time period my mom lived on Grace Chapel Church road, about a half mile from its intersection with the Gibson highway (NC 381). And right there at the intersection was a general store/gas station owned by Mr. George James whose daughter was mostly responsible for minding the store. When I visted Mom on the weekends my brother Kenny and I would take the short walk there to shoot a few games of pool on a coin operated 3/4 table. Mr. James' grandson and granddaughter, children of the lady who minded the store, were usually hanging around and took on the winner of our game. Now, those kids were young, probably between 12 and 14, and knew how to shoot a game of pool. And in all the games Kenny and I shot with them, I can't remember ever winning one. No, as the losers we just kept fishing our pockets for quarters for the table and Pepsis for the kids. I don't remember their names but they would be around 52-54 years old now.

Wow! I was really off on the kids' ages! I remember them as just young teenagers, certainly not in the late teens.

One of my old memory cells just woke up and I think their mother's name was/is Louise.

Wayne is right... the children's names are Eddie and Terry. I just talked to brother Kenny and he remembers their last name as Wrape. Oh, well, at least I had their mother's name right.

Well, where did Daryl Wrape fit in? He used to work with us at Duke Power.
