"My #1 Interest."
April 12, 2008
It might surprise people to know that CHESS, is NOT really my #1 favorite activity I love to engage in. At this age of seventy-three, (March 22, 1935), I just love to jog on the local school's track and field concorse here in downtown Bismarck, N.D. 58501
Sometimes I run with youngsters, age thirteen to middle twenties. I AM a health nut. I eat only ONCE a day, one glass of milk a day, lots of fruits and vegetables, and eat only sparingly in restaurants. (PSST...... Restaurant food contain LOTS of GREASY ingredients, did you know that?)
Sometimes, when I get bored, and ONLY then, will I play a little CHESS at Chess.com I don't believe in playing ten players at the same time. The most I will play will be about four players. You know why?
Because CHESS is definitely a patience oriented, emotionally INVOLVED activity, where a player's ATTENTION is definitely REQUIRED.... undevided ATTENTION.. that is!!..... To each game played. Hence I LIMIT my Chess games to no more than four players at a time. I also NOTICE that people who play a whole lot of CHESS games, don't really progress on their STATS.
Playing CHESS to me means....."Quality time"... NOT "Quantity time". And another thing.. if you SUFFER from A.D.D. (Attention Deficit Disorder)...... Trust me... DON'T bother to apply!!
Otherwise, you will see me at the TRACK and FIELD concorse running with the kids!! Remember, I am NOT a CHESS fiend! ............I am a Health freak, instead!! I don't know why, but I always feel young!!
