All's well that ends well were the watch words last night at the Lion & Crown Public
House in Allen as eight teams competed and only three get to bring home those prizes.
The Hilltoppers started out strong with a Double-or-Nothing win in Round One, but slipped
later on, only to rebound in Round Five and eventually come back for a third place win.

A word about the Hilltoppers. They're a fun family who never let life's misfortunes get
them down. A while back, one of them lost their home to a fire. How does Quiz Master
Lou know? They told me. At the pub. Only a few days after it happened. Most folks I
know would be paralyzed with depression after such an event, but they shrugged it off and
decided to play King Trivia Pub Quiz instead. And last night, the lovely daughter who
often accompanies their disabled father, confided to me that she is going into the hospital
for some radical cancer surgery next week. She only wanted Quiz Master Lou to know so I
wouldn't worry about her absence for the next few weeks. Also, how much she will miss
playing KTPQ while she recuperates. She even joked about playing via tele-remote from
the hospital. Quiz Master Lou wishes he could run a quiz just for her while she's
there. My best wishes for your recovery, my dear.

Life can be hard sometimes. And sometimes life can be hard a lot. Life happens to all
of us, but it is how each of us handles it that makes us individuals. The Hilltoppers
are some of the best individuals I know. We live in stressful times. Many of us fear
for the future. And many do not handle it well. Quiz Master Lou believes if more folks
around the country handled life like the Hilltoppers, we wouldn't live in such stressful

Anon, friends...
