Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

There are a few magic things about the number seven.

There are seven stars in the big dipper:

There are seven days in a week:

There are seven notes in an octave:

There are seven spots on a ladybug:

 And now, I’m ranked a “7” in 9-ball according to APA Handicap rules!  YAY!

See that “7”.  That’s right baby, I’m back to a 7.  I’m no longer a 6; no way.  I’m now a SEVEN.

I’m a “10” if you’re counting in a septenary system.

What does being a “7” mean?  It means I’m a bad-ass.  Don’t try to play pool against me because I’ll wipe the felt with you.  It means I only have “8” and “9” left to go before I conquer the world with my billiard geniusity.

The skill levels go from 1-9 – the handicap is in place so that anyone can win.  Anyone except people who play against me, that is.

Whew, I feel better after that bragathon.  Tomorrow maybe I won’t be so full of hubris.

And lo, the people did comment thus:


  1. Christine says:

    Is my “cousin” dave baker on your pool team or is it another dave baker?

  2. whall says:

    Christine, why yes it is. Peter, Tracy, Dave and I all work together. He’s a blast.

  3. Christine says:

    that is crazy! no comparing stories now okay…

  4. Christine says:

    Also my birthday is the on the 7th and I was born in 1974. Lucky sevens. You have a birthday in like eight days!

  5. whall says:

    And now it’s just 7 days until my birthday… Counting down to… 37. What a prime age to be (pin intended).

  6. Avitable says:

    I need to get back playing pool – we have a table and everything, but I don’t play enough.

  7. Rick says:

    I never knew that about lady bug spots. I guess I figured that the amount varried. Must be a union thing, or something like that.

Hey, we all want to share our voice. And I particularly love comments, especially if you took the time to read my blog entry. I'll take the time to read your comment, I swear! But due to spammers, robots, and the fact that I want my blog to be PG rated, I need to approve the comments. This should be same day, but please don't get mad if it takes me a while to approve the comment.


PLEASE help keep this blog family-friendly by refraining from profanity and vulgarity.
