2nd, lower pic) taken on the occasion of Ruth WITH LARRY AS A PARTNER, making her 300th point!! Date: 2015 11 24; location Lakeland, FL. On the Blackboard, 300 is written!!
I said the following when Ruth earned access to the FSA HOF, Player award. It bears repeating.
CONGRATS RUTH FROM EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS
The 2005 pic & story from the archives of The Shuffler. As I repost this story on 2015 11 24, I could add many more great stories involving Larry and Ruth. I can think of no couple that personify shuffleboard to the degree of the “Browns”!! Winning is important to each, but not so important as to interfere with their personal relationships with their shuffling friends. If you hear either of them say: “What did he say”?? You know they are enjoying life!! ((Ask them to clarify ONLY if you too enjoy life!))
