Nope; haven’t given up yet, even if I’m still running behind. I’m still planning on ten total stories before the end of this month. I might not make it, but not for lack of trying.
Today I managed to bang out another short story. And go for a walk, and do some laundry, and do some repairs around the house, and eat a lot, and watch a few Longmire episodes (season 4, on Netflix).
I also took some photos for our on-going eBay sales.
One of my lenses (just a few shots as I already had other angles) . . .
. . . and a few teapots and cups Melisa will be selling:
But, as I mentioned, I also wrote a story.
As with the last two, my latest effort will go up shortly after this post goes live and it will be in a password-protected post (HERE).
Those of you who requested a password for the previous two stories can use the same password for this one. If you had no interest in the other stories but feel the third time is the charm, just drop a comment below and I’ll send the password in a private e-mail (you don’t have to include your e-mail in the comment as I’ll get a copy of it when I get notified of the comment).
This story is from an idea I had while listening to a podcast a few years ago. A physics podcast, but don’t let that scare you.
OK, then, on to the post. No, wait . . . here’s a photo of my chess set from the 1980s. Yup, I’m selling it. I haven’t played chess in over thirty years, and I don’t think I’ll get back to the game anytime soon.
I’m also selling my seldom-used neo-chess set. The strategy for this variation of chess is explained HERE. Essentially, when you capture a piece it changes color and goes to your sideboard. In any subsequent turn, you may opt to drop the captured piece anywhere on the board instead of moving any of your pieces already on the board.
It really changes the strategy of the game, and I never found willing players after leaving high school.
I used to play a lot of chess, but like many other things I eventually got bored with it and lost interest.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.
