I have been playing chess since 1985. However, I still make pretty bad mistakes sometimes. Weeding refers to removing weeds due to the landscaping I am involved in. It is not a reference to drugs. The 45 in my name was my age when I opened my account. I am older than that now. I look much younger than that in my picture, I know. I am not allowing myself to be invited into any more clubs and I am not allowing it to let people challenge me. I have my hands full as it is. Besides chess I like to read and draw. I never went to art school but I find it relaxing. I drew this whale and the squid you see here.  

A few more of my drawings here, although not professional quality.
