Do you know about Canadian Rules Chess? It’s an interesting sport, lots of odd rules.

Important Kitty Safety Note: Just wanted to assure you kitty-lovers out there that Lily is ok. She is an OLD cat who recently got a haircut…which looks quite odd on a longhair, it is coming in oddly, but she is healthy as a horse. And, again, I’d like say that while I enjoy snapping pictures of our chess champion grabbing the cat, animal torture is not something that is tolerated in this house.
