Chess and New Year's Go Hand in Hand

You know... Chess and New Year's Eve go hand in hand. In chess we must plan and plan ahead. And plan your opponents course of action as well. Something I find difficult to do. But not New Year's planning, oh no. I'm 4o years old and I've learned, not necessarily the hard way under these circumstances but I have learned my lessons on this subject. We must plan well for the New Year's festivities and keep in mind those who haven't at ALL times. Planning well means having a designated driver if we plan on drinking alcohol away from home. Buying my own liquor has saved me a ton of money the last couple of years. Not to count the potential expense of taking the risk of driving while legally intoxicated. I say legally because that is all it will take to ruin your life. It will throw a monkey wrench in the middle and end games of life. A man could even lose his Lady and we all know as chess players how devastating that is when we cannot immediately replace her. And, are the right ones replaceable ? I digress... Please, plan ahead and plan well and be on the lookout for your fellow being who just may happen to be an amateur. They're all over the place , you know ? Be safe and I look forward to facing all of you at some point down the road... Happy New Year !!! Auld Lang Syne !!!
