It’s been a busy weekend – but I’m not complaining 😊
On Friday my younger brother (the one without a Fields Medal) came over from Sydney with his partner and two children. I have also taken leave from work, starting on Friday and finishing the following Friday (8th April). Someone else and his family was supposed to come along for dinner, but the Coronavirus gods decreed otherwise.
But it’s not all doom and gloom with the Adelaide Crows winning an epic showdown against their bitter rivals Port Adelaide, and my niece has shown some promising signs as an artist. Over the past few years, she’s getting pretty good with happy stars and now she is moving on to bigger and better things, including Spider Solitaire.
My younger brother and his family are leaving this afternoon. After that it’s back to round 3 of the first game in our 5-point match with a Backgammon doubling cube showing the number ‘8’ face up. No pressure!

Thanks for the update! Nice to hear a tad about your outside life now and then. I started dialing your age up a decade or more when I read “daughter-in-law”. That suggests a son (or a partner’s son) who’s old enough to get married. I then decided you probably meant “niece” or “step-niece”. At least that’s the way we think of it here in New England!
Yes you’re absolutely right about niece/daughter-in-law. The post has been updated.
Master Chi-Yuen, very nice post, thank you for sharing. I predict a win for her in her in current hand. I can just see that semi-evil grin that you taught her as she pushes the D-cube across the board.
Again, I posted but got a no-show. I think the problem is me.
Anyway, I forgot to add:
We Loves Us Some Jacks ‘n Fives ‘n Chit….Fives ‘n Chit….Fives ‘n Chit
Actually I posted just fine, just to the other chapter, which is worse than not remembering. I would be embarrassed if but this sort of constitutes my normal life mode after the head bash.
But on the bright side, I was right, the problem IS me !!!!
Master Chi-Yuen feel free to delete this repete or keep it here to remind us all that I am not all here, as you wish.
