We arrived at the grandkids home at 1100 and the fun began. Lots of giggles and activity was followed by fried fish for lunch. It was all good.

Gavin had received a chess set from his Grandmother Spain for his upcoming birthday.

He read the instructions and played a game with his younger sister and “beat “her. Then he played his mother and got beaten.

During lunch he challenged the OFM “grandpa” to a match. He was ready for the big time he thought. We have to give him credit for doing really well for a kid of 8 years and only on his third game. The OFM had to work a little bit to stay in the game a couple of times. But in the end he was disappointed in his loss to someone who used to play competitive chess for twenty years.

Acrobatics were displayed by both kids. Many other items of kid play were displayed until the OFM was worn out. So he finally headed home to the Castle ready to rest and calm down after the big afternoon of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Great game from grandma. Now you can have a rematch anytime you get together.
    Tell us about your twenty years of chess competing, OFM.
    Thanks for the post & have a fun day.



      45. OFM........Finished last again.

  2. Helping Gavin develop his Chess Skills is a good way for having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the grands.

    It's about time.
