I enjoyed your tale....trying to remember the phrase for chess blindness cause that's what i suffer from :).....love your memorabilia....do you collect a lot of chess antiques?
HI and thanks for reading and the comment.
The phrase is in the story. Grim says it when he losses the game to me. Better go back and check it out.
okay got it...amaurosis scacchistica......my latin word for the day. Thank you for expanding my chess vocabulary--I learn something here everyday!
Great story. Read both parts. You have talent for writing. Continue!
Thanks so much for reading both parts.
That was 10.000 words or so.
Denver, I bought "The Chess Companion", by Chernev, and that story is NOT there. Do you have any idea which book it might be in?
I don't know I would like to read it also. I will keep my eye and ears out for it.
Awesome! Can't wait for part three! Message me wen it comes out!
Hmmm. . . I never thought of a third part. I used to think that part was when
The Grim Ripper would come and get me for real.
I guess I will write the third part. Good Suggestion.
