Last night-after almost 2 years in Bethune-Mrs. Curley and I ventured out to the local 'pub' as it were. The Monday night crowd was very sparse. Mrs. Curley & I had the pool room to ourselves. We shot a half-dozen games of pool while the background echoed with classic southern rock mixed with contemporary country music (not my choice, but it could have been much worse). The smoke (due to the spareness of the crowd) was minimal.
As mentioned here before, Mrs. Curley and I used to have a weekly 'date night', but hadn't had one since moving out to Bethany. Now, while I don't think Mike's will become a weekly or even a monthly venture for us, it was wonderful to get out with Mrs. Curley once again.
