Chess and the perfect day

I only had to work in college for the morning so I've been around the house for a few hours. Today, in this part of the world, it is a beautiful day. All the visual benefits of autumn but with the blue sky and slight breeze of a perfect summer's day. Just walking to the post office raised my spirits.

I'm posting a book I found while clearing up. This was a gift from my uncle John, and it was this book that started my interest in chess. Sadly, I have hardly improved since I first was given the book, nearly thirty years ago. Oddly though, I did find a scrap of paper inside it with the university timetable for my great friend, Alison. Odd because today is her thirtiest birthday. Happy birthday Ali!
