This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Dad Would Be Extremely Proud...

Yesterday, my 8 year old grandson taught his Mother how to play chess.
He learned from his Father.
My daughter told me he was an excellent teacher...           

                                 

Dad taught me to play chess. He would take f-o-r-e-v-e-r to make a move. I always thought it was just part of how one plays chess. I have very fond memories playing it with him. Dad taught each of us to play chess. I spoke with my second to the oldest brother K____ tonight, and when I asked, he told me Dad had taught him to play as well....

I know Dad would be thrilled to learn my grandson is playing, and that he understood the game well enough to teach his Mother.

Dad would be extremely proud...

Nice. This brigs back good memories for me. My Dad taught me to play chess when I was three or so.
