Lee Seymour, my maternal grandfather, was an avid pool player and a good one at that! To his friends at any pool room he frequented, he was known as "Spot," a nickname derived from a large black mole on his right cheek. Interestingly, I have a smaller version of that mole on my lower right cheek and my great granddaughter Elizabeth Hopkins, daughter of my grandson Calvin Hopkins, has a similar mole on her lower left cheek.
Grandpa and I used to play pool together and he always "cleaned my clock." Shortly before he die, we played together for the last time during a visit to San Jose, California where he lived. That day I won the game. He wept!
