At one time there was an equivalent of the Icehouse in every city in the United States. It had a bar, served beer, and had domino tables, pool tables and served both men and women. It was a social center where the gossip of the day prevailed and recreation was offered.
Cold weather has finally arrived. The forecast is for all week. Fortunately I have some winter clothes to wear. This is the holiday season. I am looking forward to celebrating Christmas with family members. Love to all, John.
