No longer semi retired. Will work until I die. Rather wear out than rust out! Enjoy playing chess, walking the dogs, and living life to it's fullest, one day at a time! I've played chess all of my life and should be a lot better than I am, but what matters is the enjoyment one gets from the game, without taking it too seriously. I do like to keep the games moving along in accordance with the time limits. I do not send out reminders and will take skulls, unless you're on my "buddies" list, so plan your games around your vacations.
