The Cool DL and myself always enjoyed a brief game of chess before High Tea. I will always be thankful to the Marquis of Queensbury for teaching me the rules of this noble and ethereal sport. There is nothing to beat the calm and peace of an intellectual battle between two masters, until the final cry of 'Check this out mate!' which leads to the end of the game and a firm handshake (once the losers regains conscienceness).
How I miss those afternoons on the High Savanna with only the Cool DL and my steel toecapped boots for company.
Heady days, heady days!!
